> But being from Michigan, I play a lot of 'up north' golf, which means, tight fairways, many trees, and (because it's usually a golf trip with the guys) a few extra barley pops.   +1 for the Northern Michigan golf..  playing those holes caved out of forest can be challenging.   Great place for a golf weekend with the guys.   The balls of choice for me are from MG Golf.  They are re-badged balls from a mainstream manufacturer (used to be hogan balls, then I think...
  I know this thread is really old,  but I am searching around for a spreadsheet to track a simple golf league.    It's for my father, who is in a small church league.  I told him we could find a spreadsheet to track the players' handicaps for the 9 hole league.   The previous post mentions an attached spreadsheet, but I don't see it.   Is it available somewhere?   Or, does anyone have a pointer to a decent spreadsheet?   Thanks for any help.
Anchoring the putter to your body.   Use a putter as long as you want, but anchoring it to your belly or chest seems inconsistent with all the other rules governing club form, grip, etc.   A vertical shafted putter is non-conforming.  Croquet style putting is not allowed.  I'm not sure why belly putters are allowed.
  Good point..  Honestly, I never remember whether a situation allows for one or two club length relief.  So, I usually just go with one driver length to be cautious.    But, I don't see the logic for why the small difference in relief in various situations.  Standardizing would eliminate a lot of confusion, and speed things up.  
  I don't think filling divots is a rule, it's a courtesy.     I walk whenever possible.  I replace my divots whenever possible, and I fix any ball marks on greens I encounter.  I fill divots with mix, if the divot is destroyed and mix is available.     But, I don't carry my own mix because of the weight and convenience.    Frankly, those of us who are aware of the issues are most likely not the problem, and any attempt to change behavior of the clueless is futile....
With almost any GPS device, you should be able to check the stats and see how many satellites it is locked on to and what its accuracy is. With the iPhone, there is a free app called "GPSLite" which has a screen that shows the GPS signal strength and accuracy. When I was checking my iPhone on the golf course last weekend, it said the accuracy was 150ft. My Garmin car GPS unit usually is around 15 (feet or meters, I'm not sure what the units were). I'll have...
Mine's on a mount attached to the umbrella holder of my push cart: http://thesandtrap.com/forum/threads...gear-GPS-mount So, it's always out in the open and locked in to the GPS signal, so I immediately have a good yardage as soon as I stop my cart next to my ball.
I have had my 60* wedge for three years, and the grooves are looking quite worn. My wedges get more wear and tear than most of my irons, because they are used more. I practice with them, chipping around in the yard, etc. I'm wondering if the fact that they look worn necessarily means they are not performing up to snuff. Or, if this really isn't a big issue and they perform as well as new wedges. I know people who swear by their ancient rusted wedges, and claim...
Black Max is a good ball. Opinions vary, but I find them to be comparable to the expensive premium balls. But, make sure they are Black Max, and not Black Max Distance or some other variant. The other versions of that ball are nothing like the original. Where can you get them, and for how much?
I did a quick test last night to see if the materials I had could be a workable mount. Once I clean it up a bit more, and get a better attachment setup (rather than a screw and a couple washers), it will be okay. Certainly not as good as kregan's, but it will serve my purpose. Here are a couple pictures:
