 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...
 And here I thought I was playing "actual golf"! I will have to tell some of the old timer's that they have spent the last 40 years playing something else!  Once again this is not the Master's, It is a weekly golf league with a few golf trips thrown in. We play match & stroke play and the only people who are "cheating" with not taking a stroke and distance are those who hit their ball OB and chose not to take a stroke and distance. So the only cheaters are those who avail...
  1-My league has been around for 70 years. We have a 2 hour window to get 30, 2 somes off. so the pace of play works well, especially when some of our membership are older and not as mobile. So the dropping at a OB is strictly for pace of play. This is not the masters tournament, this is a beer league. 2-we play at a muni that suffers from divots, up keep, flooding and brown outs and once again this is not the masters! (and we dont penalize when someone asks what club to...
1st off, I am not quitting the league. I joined the league first and badgered him for years to join. SO if anyone is quitting it is him. I intent to play in this league for 30 more years!   2nd, his typical round, which he plays 3 times a week. Is to go out with a bunch of guys (hackers) they usually play the same course. They play 18, no side bets just hacking the ball around and patting themselves on the shoulders at the end.   Regarding league play, we have strict...
 First off, I think this has everything to do with confronting a cheater, but is complicated by who the cheater is. Had the cheater been some random golfer, I would call them out and pray for the fury of golf G*ds to reign down upon them. However this is someone who I am tied to and while I can not golf with him, I would still encounter him on holidays. That being said, the individual is very competitive and I dont know that proud of being called out by me would enter the...
As addressed previously in another thread http://thesandtrap.com/t/68046/how-to-handle-a-cheater, my father is a cheater, We are approaching my league's end of year get away trip and tournament. This year I won my flight, but lost the championship. There is also talk of nominating me as an officer. With that in mind I can no longer condone my father's cheating.   A little extra info. He does not cheat during league, regular season match play. But then again we are...
My golf league ends tonight (which I playing for the championship),I have our fall get away for my league and atleast another round, but when you are married and have young kids and spend alot of time being "Mr Mom", your fall ball is limited. And up here in the northeast the sun starts to set early, which means during the week I would have leave work super early to get 18 in. And I just cant afford to take that time off ( I save it for  the summer time)
I try, and try and try but I tend to fall off the wagon come summer time. My wife follows Medifast (which works for her), but considering she is out of work all summer long we may order out a little more often.Not to mention during the summer time I seem to either be at a cook out or hosting a cookout and the beer just flows. We find outselves at amusement parks or someplace with the kids and it can be difficult to be healthy, but we try.Lastly I play in my golf league and...
