I don't think cost is such a big issue, a person can buy great used gear for little money and there are plenty of affordable courses. I also don't think time is an issue, 9 holes only takes a little while, 3 par courses can be done in a flash, people have the time if they want it. The game itself is the biggest problem, it bores most people, it's a slow game no matter how fast people try to make it, it's not about action, it's not about machismo, it's not about looking...
It's silly, I like the Beatles but certainly don't care if someone else does or knows them or whatever, it childish drama being thrown at Bubba IMO, trolling.
It's probably a good move for her in that she'll get paid now, and has a chance to become a star outside of golf, but eye candy can come and go in a flash on the big stage, can she be more? we shall see. And it's going to be tough for GC to find a good replacement, they don't have it now, the girl has to be on Holly's level with looks, not be too next door or sporty, and she has to be as charming as Holly, it's going to a dig for them, I certainly don't think Sara Brown...
I'm guilty, not sure why I do it, but I'll stop, I know it bothers people, never again...
I agree that it's just lip service, to make other players happy, in the end if Tiger is swinging a club he's on the team, he certainly does not need to "earn" his way on, he's already done that many times over, he needs to show he's healthy, that's it.
Real grass is hard to find by me, it's mats or nothing, so one has to learn the feel and sound of a good shot off the carpet, and I have, I can tell when players a few stalls away hit it right, and when they're fat, I'm amazed how many continue to hit those fat shots again and again, possibly thinking they're doing well, and then go to chunk the mall, it's really a terrible way to practice for that reason alone, no less the lack of feedback and divots... but it's all we got.
Keep the arms close, fire the right hip towards 3B.
About a 120, it was an 18 hole massacre at Bethpage Blue, waiting 30 minutes per hole on the front did not help this beginner any though, so many crappy golfers playing from the tips, not cool, but I think in the end it was one foursome that killed it for everyone, we noticed the group in front of us skip a hole at the turn and then we saw why, we watched this guy take about 10 practice swings and then punch it somewhere three fairways away, so we skipped them too,...
I think modern grips with the soft velvet rubber make gloves less needed than with the old hard plastic corded grips, which were super slippery with even the slightest moisture, but for me I'll never go without, my hands get sweaty easy and I see no reason not to wear one, soft grip pressure is key and without a glove I may compensate with more.
Yes, definitely, its mostly mats by me and that can be a big transition to the grass, it sucks. So I've been taking it slower at the range, working on each part of the swing from takeaway to finish and trying to get it all into a smooth swing rather than hitting a lot of balls. The other thing I do is approach the range likes holes, first I drive, then second shot with hybrid/long iron, then wedge, all with a target, if I hit the same club over and over I get good with...
