Shooting Under Par

So a couple weeks ago, I shot my first round under par. (That I know of.)

How long did it take you to get your first round under par?

I've been playing for about a year and a half, but only about 9-12 months actually intensely. Did it take me too long for me to get a round under par?

my first time under par was about 3 weeks ago actually at bear creek park. came out -2 overall, but it is a pretty easy course to come out under par.

Haven't been playing a year yet and I have not been under par. Close once at El Dorado but I think I got a bogey on the last hole to go back to even. I did shoot a plus one recently and a plus three today. So, I am working on it. I think a lot has to do with the courses you play as well. I am pretty sure after playing La Mirada as much as I do that I could go somewhere else and shoot under par.

Yeah, the course I play has 8 par 3 <400 feet and 1 par 4 >400, but they're all pretty technical shots, so I feel good about my two -1s.

Congratulations on the -1's!

I've been playing 2.5yrs, still looking for my under par round. I just started tracking my scores as pro par this year, and the best I've shot is +1. I've shot under by the signs, as low as -8, but I don't count that. The +1's came at Radcliff City Park, which isn't the most difficult course, but there is quite a bit of trees and a lot of OB. I'm hoping to get some negative scores there this year. My home course, Freeman Lake, now that's a different story. If I get under par there, you bet I'll be posting about it!......

It's a par55 course that is pretty challenging to shot under for an Intermediate Player. I got down to +4 a couple weeks ago.

All this is subject to what people mean by "par" and "pro par".

And the courses you play.

The course I play most often, you should shoot under the posted par almost immediately....and, if you call everything par-3, most people will find themselves shooting under par within weeks or months of starting.

On the other hand, on my own course, many people will never shoot under par, no matter how defined.

I've got a few under par rounds. But only during a casual round. I'd like to shoot under par at a tournament!

I agree with Davidsauls, the course you play and the par there are a big part of shooting under par. It feels good to do it but -1 at some courses would be an awesome score and only a so-so score at another.

It took me about a year or so to shoot under par. I did it at a pretty easy course. My home course is quite hard and I still have not even shot par there yet. I usually shoot 60 at my home course. The best I ever did at my home course was +4. The best I have ever shot was -6 at Bear Branch in The Woodlands,TX
