    • One Ball condition- Presidents Cup
      By ncarlsongolf · Posted
      What the heck is that ruling?   How do you lose one hole two times?    They gave Phil a ruling which made him pick up his ball, he was out of the hole, then they win the hole and are awarded an additional hole?   It makes no sense given Zach Johnson was still playing the hole? I've never heard or ran across any ruling that just awards additional  holes in match play? Loss of hole, Yes. Winning additional holes, NO.     Can someone help to make sense of this?
    • What tees do pro women play off?
      By DrvFrShow · Posted
      It's the driving distance. At the tips you narrowed the field to Thompson, Lincicome, Klatten, Sjodin, and Ciganda. That's a 267 yd cut off with the top end at 274.5 yds. Wie is not in the group - she only averaged 255 last season. I almost didn't include Ciganda. There are too many long shots. You can end up with a 590 yd par 5. That's a long hole. If you're only hitting a 230 yd drive, you're hitting a 3W and then a 5 or 6 iron into the green depending upon how far you hit your 3W. As good as the player is, that's a long shot to depend on for a GIR, so most likely a scramble in this situation. This hole, however, becomes a par 6 unless it is shortened to 574 yds. The other thing people overlook is that from the tippy tips even some of our local muni courses become entirely different courses and it isn't just the distance. That first hole tee shot doesn't look the same because the approach to the fairway is now quite a bit narrower and that draw most of you play around the dogleg from the whites becomes a cut so they land in the middle of the fairway instead of in the trees - there's a big tree blocking that push draw now. Then that relatively easy 7 iron shot on the par 3 third hole becomes a 220 yd shot that has to clear to front bunkers, and the tee isn't elevated. There are trees on the right, and usually a left to right cross wind but don't be fooled into playing it, because it dies about 3/4 the way to the hole and if you're short you're in the left bunker. Now for women, this hole becomes a very short par 4 unless they move the tees up to 210 yds. If they're accurate that group at the top can hit the green if they want to play aggressive. I think this is what Erik is getting at.
    • What course would you play for free the rest of your life?
      By mvmac · Posted
      Yeah again I don't think the OP means you're limited to one course. You can pay to play at other courses but this "dream" course would be free.
    • What course would you play for free the rest of your life?

      If I was limited to just one course for the rest of my golfing life, it would be Spyglass at Pebble Beach. I love playing that course. That would be Heaven for me. While we are at it, Hell would be that Rockwood course near Ft Worth
