Great responses. Thanks. I always figured most golfers could care less just like I do.  I've never even tried belly or long believe it or not the two I have done is hammy style and sidesaddle/face on.  I had not putted face on for well over a year but the recent article on it by Gary McCord in the last golf magazine made me dust it off and I tell you what, it is such an easy mindless way to put.  You still have to read the greens and break correctly but as far a lining...
what happened to Natalie?  She switches putters and wins her one and only tournament and putts the best of her career, switches putters again and has not sniffed a leaderboard yet hasn't even had a top 10 with the new putter.  She had 18 starts last year with 14 cuts made and zero top 10 finishes.
75% of my t.v. viewing is the Golf Channel.  That is if I can find stuff to watch on there 75% of the time.  The new morning show,  it's just OK to me. The 2 guys are pretty annoying and if they are going to get off of the subject of golf, I would rather switch to ESPN.   What bothers me with the GC is the re-runs of Hank Haney and Charles Barkley and Big Breaks from years ago and just the junk they put on.  Play re-runs of CBS Wide World of Golf, Masters re-runs,...
I'm talking about the PGA, Nationwide and for the most part LPGA (they are at least trying to fix the problem)   Yes, there is rule 6-7 but in a PGA tournament there are no shots assesed for slow play.  They give out fines ($$$).  And as far as I know the fines and not made public.   It's not a USGA thing.  This is a PGA Tour thing. My point was that if the PGA started to hand out shots and eventually DQ a player, maybe just maybe we can fix this terrible problem. Fines...
I think the only way to get players attention is by assesing strokes for falling behind. Fines obviously won't do it.  It does not have to be the whole group, a single player can be singled out.  Every single player, caddie, PGA official, PGA crew and PGA wife know who the slow players are.
I will try the driver probably not the irons.  I have a sweet R9 sitting in my garage while my 5+ year old R7 425 gets used in every round. Don't know why, I just can't move away from my 425. I am a TM driver guy all the way.
When playing with your friends and/or strangers and they putt in a non-conventional manner, does it bother you at all?  Bother you to the point of making you look away when they putt, laugh to yourself or even moan to your inner-self when they make crazy putts with let's say a long putter--like it's somehow cheating?   or   whatever style someone putts with does it not make one bit of difference to you at all? It's 2011 and who cares!   When I say...
I see no problem with viewers having the ability to call in.  The bottom line is an infraction may have occured no matter who called it or saw it.  Leaver it up to the on-course officials to make the determination.   And. from what I have seen first hand, many touring pros do not know simple rules.  That is why you see so many break rules and/or call in rules officials for simple situations. Many playing partners also will not call out their buddy for breaking a rule.
