http://www.usga.org/Rule-Books/Rules-on-Clubs-and-Balls/Clubs/   Look at 'Fig 8. Putter with curved sole' from the link above.   Stricker putts like this.  How does he get away with it?
Cool.  Thanks.  That is exactly what I was looking for.  Definitely subjective and hard to believe they make it so vague.
Hole-by-hole is my preference.    I prefer to write stuff down and then transfer to my computer later on after the round.  Things like battery life, glare, and the little keypad make it too difficult to enter stuff via my phone.  And since I already have a scorecard in my pocket it's only a couple extra seconds to jot down the other things I track.    I have a shorthand method for keeping all my stats so a print out wouldn't be necessary for me, but for someone that is...
I've been looking for golf stat software and have been disappointed in everything so far both free and fee.  Here's what I'd like to be able to track:   Fairway hit If I miss what side did I miss Drive distance   % of Greens hit from > 200 yards % of Greens hit from 199 to 150 % of Greens hit from 149 to 100 % of Greens hit from 100 and less I would like the software to tell me on what side; short, long, left or right my misses are from these...
What if the second ball moved the first.  Could he clean it?
No, the fact you can't straddle the line of putt prevents a croquet style putt.  And they already have a rule as to how vertical a putter shaft can be:   "  (i)  the projection of the straight part of the shaft on to the vertical plane through the toe and heel must diverge from the vertical by at least 10 degrees"   I want to know what this means:   "If the overall design of the club is such that the player can effectively use the club in a vertical or close-to-vertical...
From Appendix II Rules of Golf 2012 - 2015 page 148, can someone explain the following:   "If the overall design of the club is such that the player can effectively use the club in a vertical or close-to-vertical position, the shaft may be required to diverge from the vertical by as much as 25 degrees"   It doesn't make sense to me and is very vague.  Any help in deciphering this would be much obliged.   Vlad
I think it would be great if we could get a World Triumvirate.  They had the Great Triumvirate of Vardon, Taylor and Braid.  Then came the American Triumvirate Hogan, Snead, and Nelson.  Then the Modern Triumvirate of Nicklaus, Palmer, and Player/Trevino.  It would be great for golf fans and golf in general if we could get a Woods, McIlroy, and ? to step up and battle it out on the world stage of golf. 
It ain't gonna happen.  Long putters are here to stay.   What is going to change in the foreseeable future is a restriction on initial velocity of the ball.  Courses have been stretched and lengthened to their limit but guys are still hitting driver/9 iron into par 5s.    Mark my words.
Yes and no.    On the 'yes' side, golf is a very mental endeavor.  If you feel that having the newest and shiniest in your bag will give you an advantage, then it may help you to play better.   On the 'no' side, it's 99% marketing and there is very little difference between the clubs that are coming out today and what came out a couple seasons ago.    Finally, if you find a club that you really like, especially if it has a graphite shaft, buy it.  In our club...
