Learn how to keep your own score
When you go for a golf game and you arrive at the golf field, there are caddies who will follow you and help you with all the side tasks. That is in most of the case because, I know there are people who want to do these tasks on their own. Firstly because they want to save money and I think this is a reasonable excuse for not using caddy services.
The second reason is because they want to learn everything about the sport even the smallest things. This is good because how can you play or do something well if you do not know well about it. I also agree with the idea that unless you want to be relax and do not have to worry about other things but your games then you should do all the tasks on your own which includes keeping track of your own score record. This is how you can learn more about your performance and make the intervention at the right time. You will see the magic that these boring paper works can help you.
Why taking note on your own?
I think I should go a bit deeper into the reasons for keeping your own record before we go to the details of how to do the keeping track. There are many reasons but I am sure you can learn about them when you do the job yourselves. I just would like to list some of the most popular reasons here. The first one is for you to stay along well with your own results. You may realize that your performance needs to be improved but it hard for you to know where should you start. Keeping an eye on your score record is a good way. The second reason is because you can change the way you are playing by making correction at the right time before you go so far to come back. And the final reason I would to tell you is that you can learn more about the sport because it will be no difficulty for you to look at the same thing from other players and you may learn something from their score records as well.
Keeping score record is actually filling information on golf cards which includes information on the length of the hole, its par and many other information. However, to do it well you need to differentiate what are stroke and match scores. Stroke score is the work of a careful eye, you cannot complete the work well if you do not pay attention to details because there are many informations to fill in not for you but also for your competitors and you have to make sure that you are honest in record these information. There are many problems that you may get if you do not get the information right because you can not change them once they are recorded. Things and the results may change just because of you small mistake in taking note down these information. Be very careful when you take this job but by doing it you can have to general vision of what is happening on the golf course.
This kind of taking notes down is a bit different from stroke score when you do not have to pay attention to every detail. You can only take notice on the holes and record your competitors’ scores and make comparison on their performance. You can keep track with all happening on the golf field and see if you can catch up with your competitors or how far you are away from them.
