I want to see these guys out there carrying their own bags and playing on their own. I think if they did this there would be less -20 scores out there!
I understand that,What I dont understand is why we feel the need to justify the rules by indicating they were written by "scratch golfers". would they be any less debatable if they were written by a -5?That just smacks of elitism to me. We have rules that were "created, interpreted, and modified" by people who are good at playing the game by those same rules.I still maintain there needs to be a difference between rec and non rec, but I have a Suspicion many do that...
Fox has always railed against "mainstream media".however they also like the flaunt the fact that they are the "most watched cable news network". Doesnt this than mean they are mainstream?
Are we talking about guys that played back in the 1860's?They were playing scratch on different courses with different equipment. It is like comparing Cy Young to a modern day player. Sure the stats still count, but they were playing different games.  Consider the 1860 Open, The winning score was 55-54-53=162 by andrew Strath.The course was Prestwick Golf Club a  12-hole course,  3,799 yards, Sure they had to play well, but they were not playing Winged Foot or Oakmount! I...
I have had 2 scenarios where I thought the lost ball rule was unfair.1-Playing by myself and lost my ball into the sun. Not a clue where it was heading, but it was not in the normal landing spot.Penalty! 2-My entire playing group in a league tournament was back at the cart when I tee’d up. I made great contact by lost it in the sun and clouds. I never even saw it!Penalty! I can understand losing a ball when you have people watching it for you, but you are set up to fail...
The same guy on occasion mark his card with what he "should have got", not what he scored. Especially if he misses a par put. The same guy plays in my league, where he carries a 10 handicap.He still contend that it is the course which keeps his score high. He maintains that "you would be 5 strokes better at any other course".Forget the fact that we have 1 member shooting scratch right now.I hate to break it to the guy, but his 5 strokes better on another course is because...
Maybe other networks and news outlets did not cover these stories because in reality they were small potatoes in comparison to the larger picture. How long did I have to endure hour after hour of programming on FOX regarding Benghazi ???? FOX covered Benghazi 10 times as much as they covered Valarie Plame!Omission is not censorship! This means they are going to give the conservative perspective on issues. not quite the "fair and balanced" they advertise.The bulk of their...
I on occasion play with a guy who will hit a decent shot, but not the result he wants.Immediately drops another ball "just to see if I can do it".Then will play the second ball and score it if he had never dropped the 2nd ball.When called on it he says " I didnt think we were playing serious".
He could always threaten to build a golf course/casino in china. Then they would have to deal with the whiny propaganda machine of Donald Trump!!!!
