I had the cataract procedure (lens implants) done.  2 weeks between each eye.  First eye, scary as he!!...second eye, I knew what to expect so it was nothing.  Since I was fully aware on 2nd eye, I looked at the clock when they wheeled me into the room and when they wheeled me out....8 minuites total.  I still have to wear glasses to read and use computer.  Other than that...I am fine.  First thing I noticed after having the surgery...how blue the sky really was.  :)Good...
I voted "Either" but I do care.  As I explained above, it depends upon whose company I am in.  I learn to adapt.  And, I go to the UK often enough I don't need some bloke correcting me. 
I see this thread has gone off in a different direction but your question was answered a couple of times.  No, you do not have to be a member of a club.  Check local golf courses around you and see if they offer a handicapping service such as GHIN.  Many do. I play in a Greater Houston traveling tournament league and with membership to our league we pay for GHIN handicapping service.  A member has to keep his dues paid up and if he does his GHIN service is active.  We have...
I too agree.  And, if you slow that video down so that you can place a pointer where the ball is lying on the green, it is very easy to see that the marker he put down was not moved forward.  It was in the correct spot.  He did not mark the ball where it ended up after rolling.  No penalty.
No, I play in a tournament league (20 plus events each year) and I also play in other tournaments that are played under USGA Rules of Golf.  So, no need for me to use an illegal driver even if for not tournament rounds.  I maintain a USGA handicap and I want to post every score...legally.
 Me too.
If I have a reasonable chance of hitting the green and it is not a tournament, I am loading it up and going for it all the time. If I am playing in a tournament, then it depends on what kind of trouble there is and where that trouble is.  If there is water in front of the green and any kind of miss is going to find it, then I am laying up to around 100 yards. Also, if there is OB close to both side of the green and not much bail out area, then I probably will lay...
It took me about a year and half.  I played once a week for about 6 months ( I also played industrial league baseball) and finally got tired of not having a clue.  I found a place to practice hitting my irons and went over there 3 or 4 times a week.  Hit lots of balls.  I understand physics so I understand what causes the ball to curve right or left.  A lot of my problem was learning distances I hit my clubs.  And, then there was putting and chipping.  Looking back, I...
This thread got long in a hurry and I did not read each and every post...but here is my 50cents worth.  I have played a lot of golf with a lot of guys who are/have been pros and who are/have been ranked amateurs.  They all say the same thing...even par will not make the cut.  Today's golf courses are long monsters for most amateurs. So you have to be able to bang the ball out there with the big boys and you have to have a deft touch short game.Whereever you play...you need...
The slice is costing you yardage.  You need to put in some time on the practice range and work on hitting the ball squarely on the back inside portion of the ball with the center of a square clubface.   Work on trying to draw the ball.  You will add yardage.  Work on watching the clubhead hit the ball on every shot. I also agree that you should get a 3wood.  If you can get somewhere and check your swing speed that would help you decide if you need regular flex shafts. ...
