Ehhh, there's definitely a lot of putts given, but you can always putt out if you don't want to take them.

I definitely was thankful to have them last night, and I still 3 putted 4 different greens. My short game was ugly yesterday for sure. 22 putts for 9 holes = 46 - not a good start. Greens were tough to gauge speed. Some were shaggy, some were fast. Oh well, next time I'll putt better (but some other part of my game will probably suck)
True, you can still putt out, but IMO, you shouldn't because what happens if you miss it?!?!? Yes, it was still given and your score wont change, BUT still in the back of your mind you missed it and that will screw with ya. At least it does with me. If someone gives you a putt ALWAYS pick it up.

I wouldn't give too much weight to putting right now. As you say, the greens are bumpy/shaggy/slow so your not getting a true roll on the ball. This time of year I try and concentrate on line and not speed. Speed control will come as greens get better, then worry about it.
wow!  for someone who gave up golf 9 years ago you sure have a lot of advice to swel forth!
I gave up LEAGUE golf you dork---now I mainly play matches/skins games with my buddies and tourneys---got it??? good

Re: The Golf Thread

I played my 3rd round of the year yesterday. I hit 15 greens in regulation but managed to shoot 77 with 6 three putts! 

My putter which worked great my first 2 rounds was M.I.A! It always amazes me how something that works great one day can be gone the next.

In golf everything is temporary. Sometimes this is a good thing..sometimes not..

Yeah, these early season greens are so variable. I had another 4 three-putts yesterday. Still shot a 43, but it could've been way better. My irons are looking good, but I had a couple of erratic drives. Definitely feeling better this week, though (might have had something to do with the beer I brought - beer cart girl isn't out yet).

LOL...I find it funny that Elmira, NY has a municipal course named after the person who originally quoted that..
