Can't say I've said to anyone that I shot 10.2 over CR when asked what I scored .
I really do no longer consider par or stableford points as an indication (to me) of my performance.
If stableford ceased to exist, or had never been invented, I think most people would think the way I do now.
But it does exist and people choose to let it dominate their thinking.
Stableford is fun. Not counting some of your bad shots - what a wheeze. That is what makes it appealing.
