During league matches we have 1 score card and 1 person keeps score for the 2 person match. However I tend to keep a score card for me with putts & stats etc....I find that most times during my matches my opponent knows my score right as I drain a putt. I find more people cheat during outings, when you are no longer keeping an eye on 1 opponent, but playing in a 4 some, against all 4. You are filling up from the keg at the turn and playing a 6 hour round because the group...
I should have added this to my last post, but it will not let me edit.That being said I carry a 5i that I do not hit well, either off a tee or turf. However I have hit it well once or twice which has kept it in my bag. I do have a Nickent 5H which I can sometimes hit well, but for some reason the 5 Hybrid goes atleast 15 yards further than my 5 iron, which throws everything off. not to mention that I feel silly being a 40 year old and resorting to a 5 hybrid makes me feel...
I actually hit my 5W rather well, but never find myself at that distance.  I do avoid hitting my 5i, since I tend to leave the face open causing a nasty shank. So I will go down a club and stay straight. My 7 wood is an old Bertha and I have to imagine a new 3H would be easier to hit than this club. But all my clubs go high in the air. I hit nothing low, due to my swing angle.     D 260 3W 230 5W 215 4H 200 5i   185 6i 175 7i 165 8i 155 9i 145 pw 135 gw...
My bag current has: Driver 3w, 5w, 4H, 5i -gw, 56, 60 Putter This is 14 clubs. The issue I have is carrying clubs I don't use. When my drivers working correctly I can usually carry 260 on the drive, which leaves me short iron into the green. Therefore my woods, hybrids and Long irons are basically being used off the tee and par 3s. I carry a 5w to allow me 215 off the tee, otherwise it is rarely used. Over the years I've toyed with dropping the five word for a 4hybrid...
The guy that runs our league tournaments is geeked up about playing from the blues (tips). Every tournamant he wants everyone going from the tips because that is where he plays from.PGA recommends that a bogie or higher move up. We have a 30 guys who are 50+ years old and 5 of those guys are 65 and up. They barked about playing from the tips and the tournament chair just indicates "we are all playing from the tips and it is a all fair". atleast 5 guys took themselves out...
 This is the first I have read this and could not agree more.I came to golf later than most, but not too late (in my mid 30's).I had 20 years of playing drum kit and I find them both to be very similar.When you are on a stage and playing mid-song, you can not think of the approaching fill heading into the chorus, you just have to feel it. you have to know what you are doing but be on autopilot.I think this is the same for a golf swing.However I have yet to get my mind out...
The league handicapping System has him at an 8 (4 per 9). The league plays 9 hole matches a week.His pile of score cards at home are all littered with pars. His idea of a handicap is more like an average IE: "I shoot alot of pars there fore I am a par golfer".He refuses to admit that he is flawed IE" if I ever shot a 50 for 90 holes I would kill myself"his idea of being "good at golf" is shooting par every round.  Tournament wise, yes. There are usually prizes or money for...
 The 2 other guys have said something to him, and he just brushes it off as the one time it happens.But he talks about his golf game, like they are unaware.They make fun of him for never loosing a ball and getting a "Elmer Sr" kick from the woods. these 2 guys are also in my league, but we dont play at the same level, so paths never cross. I dont think they would out him to the league Dont get me wrong for a 66 year old the old man plays well, he puts it down the middle...
 Erik, Somehow we got on the topic of my entire golf league as cheaters, when my intent was to combat the actions of a 1.As originally posted (and I apologies if it was not that clear) my league has 2 tournaments, beginning and end of year. During the season we play our matches within our flights and during these tournaments we play with our golfing buddies within the league. Tournaments and league play are all under the league rules of play.This "guy" who happens to be my...
 Yes we score for both Match and stroke play at the same time. We also have some members who are in their 70's and playing on their 3rd new hip. (hence the need to move them along) What you dont seem to understand and you must not have read my OP, is that I am not a league officer, therefore I can not change a rule. Forget the fact that I need a quorum to do so in the first place, so there I can not simply change a rule to ensure that all league participant are actually...
