I play mostly Muni & Public courses, where most players dont fill their divots and the course does not always fill them either. I try to play the ball as is! That being said, I usually play my ball where it lies, unless it is on a rock or a root. I am not going to sacrifice my equipment to hit a ball off a root and be out a wedge because SWMBO would rather feed our kids than repair a club I busted up trying to win a Nassau at a muni!   Of course I have seen many a...
We both know that is just not going to happen.As we both know this will not be last piece ever to skewer or critisize Tiger.See, I have always admired Tiger's talent and ability. I loved watching him play and watching his swing (until he began the endless tinkering).When Tiger is "On", there is no one better to watch on a golf course (2nd being lefty).But what I don't admire is what appears (at least to me) as a sense of entitlement. His barking at the crowd to quiet down,...
And this is why he should have remained silent. If he chose to respond to this fake interview, which was labeled "fake" from the begining, will he be responding to all critisicm he disagrees with?What happens when Johnny Miller calls his swing lousy?Did he respond when SNL spoofed his car accident and affairs? Did he respond when the onion ran headlines?Than why respond now?  I and my wife sympathize with neither. The celebs knew better than to have personal information on...
Agreed.I think you have a better chance at being lucky when you are good, then having luck when your game is bad!
I dont know, I have seen plenty of people with what I would call "luck" on the course. I saw a person on a 190 yard par 3, duff a 7 wood and watched it bounce off a rock, roll up the approach, kick off of a sprinkler head and roll into the hole. That is dumb luck!
Any time I am trying to clear a tree, I find a way to clip a portion of it. If there is a branch somewhere I find it. I play feral balls, and if one lands within 10 yards of a tree, the ball somehow nestles up to it. If my ball gets anywhere near the woods it just runs away to grandma’s house.   That being said, I will take skill over luck, But once in a while you get lucky and it is a great feeling.   Unfortanlety I don’t get that often at all.
I understand where this idea comes from that I am a "cheat" because I play by league rules, while playing in league events (which once again does not factor into my "non" league handicap).However that is the only time I play like that, under those rules.It is the same as playing in a scramble, shamble or any other NON PGA format. League play is League play and different from any other round of golf. But people can still cheat while playing league play.You play in a league,...
Spot on! Same thing. Watch a ball sail into the trees, yet is played 10 yards from the woods.If I am playing with some random partner, or any one and we are playing for NOTHING. It does not bother me how you play your game.What bothers me is when you play your game that way and boast a score that is not correct. Knowing full well, that we know full well that it is not the correct score. Pretty much same thing,Except he is loose to impress himself. He must know I am smart...
you mean both as in, his second shot and my moving the ball marker? I am well aware of the rule about ball markers and under normal circumstances would not have done what I did. However If I stand there and indicate to him that he had marked the wrong ball, has to take a stroke etc...etc... that just has the potential to create an argument.I find in this situation when dealing with someone who has very little concept of the the "real" rules of golf that tossing their ball...
I do the same thing, if I am on a course playing by myself.I have also played 9 holes by myself and played 2 separate balls, using neither score for handicapping purposes.When I am playing a "practice" round do what ever you want. I have on occasion moved my ball to a worse lie, just so I can practice that shot.However during a round when I am competing against you, I would not do any of that.
