It looks like you all feel the same way I do about a rule ilke this! But have you paid any attention to the courses the PGA has played this year? I have noticed ALOT of wooded areas marked as lateral hazards when there is no water. The wooded are between the fairway and a pond should not be a lateral hazard! I think they're scared of one of the well known pros having another Kevin Na 16 stroke hole!
Sorry guys, this is why you pay attention in geometry!   If you were to stretch a line from the pin to your ball, this is the radius of your circle that is the distance from the hole. If you proceed to follow that radius around the circumference you will see that if the fence truly runs parallel with the hole, the circumference of your distance to the hole circle will immediately leave the fence line. This leaves a drop area, albeit small, on the inbounds side of the...
I'll throw my 2 cents in here by contradicting most everything else that has been posted. Your OP stated that you play only 3-4 times a year and you did not indicate that this was going to change. You also said that your concern was not being embarassed at your fundraiser outing. If these two statements are true, paying for lessons and/or being fitted for a new driver are incredible wastes of money! It will do you no good at all. Lessons will not instill anything if you...
I should be able to make the 17th.
I ran into this situation last week and will be playing the same course again this week in competition. On a links style course, my tee shot entered an area of tall fescue. I hit a provisional, just in case I could not find it. Once I got to the area of fescue, it has bordered by red stakes that were not visible from the tee box. I abandoned my provisional because it was hit not knowing that this was a hazard. Was this correct? Or was I obligated to play my second...
I'm playing to about a 22 right now. I've been measuring all of my drives on my SkyCaddie so I know pretty well how far I drive. Total drive, not carry. My shorter drives are around 230 with my longer ones out to 280. I'm "averaging" around 240ish. My trouble is still off the tee! I have been taking around 10 penalty strokes per round recently. I either slice one OB, lost or in the water or I smoke one 250 down the middle. So my "average" tee shot is 2 out of 3 are great...
I bought a 50* simply because it "fits" in my overall wedge selection. PW=45, GW=50, SW=55, LW=60. I've got a consistent 5* gap. I believe your selection should not be based on a single club, but how you chose to build your "set" of wedges.
I'm definately up for it, but it really depends on when. I will be spending most of my fall in CA for work, coming home every other weekend. So I got a 50/50 shot?
There are a ton of great courses in the area! You can find some super weekday or weekend afternoon rates at most courses.
Here is a chart from Golf Digest for 2013. I am putting the Callaway Hex Chrome into play tonight, changing from the e6 for exactly the reasons you mention. I tried a sleeve of ProV1s last week but had too much spin on my driver. The e5 has an even higher spin rate off the driver. So I decided I liked the driver spin of the e6 but wanted more half wedge spin around the greens. Following this chart made selecting a new ball easy, now to see if it actually works.
