Hi, have been reading some of the threads and saw things like "please give 5-5" or 2-2, may i know what is that?
Appreciate any seniors here can explain.

I think there are a few other threads discussing this too..
Basically it's the number of strokes given each 9. 2-2 = 2 strokes on the outgoing 9, and 2 on incoming. total 4 strokes (index holes)

for beginners must learn this

ask for 1-2-3 (+1 for par 3, +2 for par 4 and +3 for par 5) then bargain from there.

sometimes the good golfer wants a challenge and will likely give it to you...and you will lose.

then when u get better, they will start to give 1 stoke every hole (9-9) then 1 stroke for every hole not a par 3..(7-7), then down to 5-5, 4-4 etc.

The may want to ask for $x, $x, $x....(first 9, back 9 and total)...the most should give is x, x (front 9 and back 9 only). we beginner seldom have a good total game and will almost always lose the total...9 holes maybe got chance to call it evens.

The really good players (relative to the rest) will ask for Saddam AND give stroke!!!!!...

I never ask for strokes. (this lesson i paid for dearly today. 6 & 5.)


But I do not refuse strokes that are given.

I am sure next time we play against each other you will improve.

Jia Yo !! Jia Yo !!

I will walk this journey with you! One day you will surely beat me one day. But I am not ready to change to left hand clubs so soon.

I'm sure that your repetition was not unintended.

Did you mean that ONE DAY, MC will surely beat you FOR ONE DAY. and after that we're back to usual programming?

If so, I agree.
