 I voted yes because if one of the issues in the trend of declining golfers and rounds played is cost then I see that as a problem. And if speed is related to pace of play then I see that as a problem as well. My perception is that in general, golfer I play with take longer to putt on faster greens. I don't think they need to they just seem to. I think because they feel they have a better chance to make putts on faster, smoother greens, they spend more effort and time. I...
All the adjusted scoring averages on the PGA site and the gap to second place - or who is this Luke Donald and did he do anything interesting in 2011? I don't think the actual number means anything since one year could have been abnormally wet for some tournaments or who knows what. Like others have pointed out, in a standard year leading average is in the 69 to 70 range with a large number within a few shots of that. Take 2008, a non-Tiger year, 69.12 and 122 players...
  I agree it doesn't make much sense but it was the first time I attempted such an experiment and it made sense to me at the time. If I started over I would do it differently. But there are threads here that specifically state average distances (Average Distances... How far do you hit each club? and don't lie...), and people often post citing "average driver distance" numbers ... so? I do think it is to my point though that most people are not lying. Online users posting...
I would be hard pressed to think anyone I play with lies about their distance. I could be easily convinced that they are delusional. However I regard lying and being self deluded as separate.  I conclude deluded as some of my golf partners consistently hit 10-20 yards short on virtually every approach shot, week after week, year after year (except by accident). They must really believe X club goes X yards ... or they are insane ... or both.   A few years ago as ~15 index...
Ray Romano did something similar, got to play the Monday after the Masters, same pins, same tees. Shot 106 on his first try and 101 the last time he got to try it. Ray claimed to fluctuate between 14 and 17 handicap (index?) for the first run. http://sports.espn.go.com/golf/masters06/news/story?id=2394886   It could be argued that Monday conditions are not valid in this context and I would tend to agree but my counter would be that from year to year Sunday conditions can...
 Based on the strength of your recommendation (an admitted Murray fan) decided to see it. Have to agree with the praise comment though. After watching it I read a dozen or so reviews and while a few seemed fine more than a few seemed pretty whacked out to me.  +1 I thought it was pretty well done and I liked it.
A 9180S AXIVCore Tour Green?   http://www.amazon.com/UST-Mamiya-Proforce-AXIVCore-Green/dp/B0056HOX7I http://www.yourprogolfshop.com/UST_Mamiya_Proforce_AXIVCore_Tour_Green_Woods.html http://clubmaker-online.com/ust.axiv.html   Can't vouch for any of these potential sources though since I have never used them.
 I think Fiber-X at some point became SK Fiber and they sold a shaft called BM30 Colonial. Of course I don't have any way to know if the Fiber-X Colonial was just renamed BM30 Colonial or totally re-engineered. The BM30 R flex was a 4.5 and the S flex was a 6.0, quite a gap! As for Bill's Z-11s, I would just play with them and see how it goes. Usually within a few round it is pretty clear if it is true Love or DCUWCY.
 It seems you may have (inadvertently) reversed the application of rating and slope. A "USGA Course Rating" is the USGA's mark that indicates the evaluation of the playing difficulty of a course for a scratch golfer under normal course and weather conditions. It is expressed as strokes taken to one decimal place, and is based on yardage and other obstacles to the extent that they affect the scoring ability of a scratch golfer. (See Section 13.) A "Slope Rating" is the...
I would choose to play first.   Playing down to a two chip size opening on the table, I play my chip in  the middle of the two chip size area leaving him with no play on either end.   Playing down to a three chip size opening on the table, I play the middle chip size square forcing him to play either end. Leaving me to play the last chip.   Playing down to a four (4X1) chip size opening on the table, I play my chip covering the middle two chip sized squares forcing...
