On a similar vein as the "How Many States" query, how many countries?  Other than the USA and Canada, I have only been to Ireland and the UK (Scotland).  Some golfers who have visited the Caribbean or traveled through Europe might have some impressive numbers.

Get real, bk. Canada is an independent country, with its own rich golf tradition. You need to count them separately. Your phrasing doesn't do much US-Canadian relations. :beer:

To show your repentence, buy the next Canadian you meet a Molson.

------------------------

Besides USA, I have played golf in Japan (Okinawa, about 30 years ahead of Normdamarine); Taiwan; Germany, and Italy. (I've also played in Sicily, whose locals would count it as an honorary separate country.)

I've visited Canada, but haven't played golf there - yet.

So you know someone who played in another country and she brought you a shirt.  Well, I guess that counts..... :-P

U.S., Japan, Argentina, Mexico, Spain

Was supposed to play Pete Dye's Black Pearl course in Honduras when we pulled in on a cruise a couple of years back......but it turned out that I was the ONLY ONE ON THE ENTIRE FREAKING BOAT that wanted to play golf, so they canceled the excursion.  I could have piled into a cab and played on my own, but decided it was just too much trouble.  I'll bet they had 1,000 people that went to swim with the stinkin' dolphins, but couldn't come up with one more golfer on that damn barge!  Yeah.....I'm still pissed. :pound:

Just a 'point of information' but Molson, and Labatt for that matter, are absolute piss. When you come to Canada do yourself a favour and explore our micro-brewery offerings. I highly recommend McAuslin's beer, all they do are ales and they do it very, very well!

The Budweiser of Canada. The equivalent of Fosters in Australia. Beer for people who don't really like beer...... ;-)

    • The BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
      I'm enjoying this, but it could really do with a bit more pulling power. Just a shame not to see a few of the top European Tour players like Sergio or Rory not play it.
    • My Swing (b101)
      It's just feeling a little bit more natural than it used to and I'm not stepping on the course with 5 or more swing thoughts, which is nice! I don't think it'll take much work getting back to making progress and I'm definitely seeing that some of the changes I've made have stuck - ball flight is really high compared to what I'm used to and the ball turns right to left about 50% of the time and stays straight for 30%. It's the 20% of rubbish, either duck hooks or generally wayward tee shots that I want to clear up, which is going to be this morning's target on the range. I didn't end up hitting the range yesterday - a mate texted to ask to play a round, so I went for that. What was obvious is that the little 9 hole course, where I don't need anything above a 4 iron, has been great for my iron play, but that the 3 wood, driver and course management need a bit of a refresher course. Shot an 86 with a ridiculous 7 penalty strokes (4 on one tough par 3), which says it all really as I don't normally take any! It is a tight track though and there is OB all over the place, but no excuse for the few 'head off' moments which prevented me scoring well. It was match play as well so I guess that's part of it... In short summary: Driving/3 wood - pretty poor and I'm just not comfortable over the ball with those clubs. On a longer course, I'd have struggled. Long irons - good, bar that atrocity of a par 3, where I think I'll just aim way left next time and take the safe miss. Both of those were actually really nice strikes, but went dead straight rather than drawing like I had expected. Still, my fault entirely for aiming towards the trouble  Mid-short irons - mostly pretty good actually. Put 6/14 approaches from outside 100 yards to (3/4 from within 100) inside 15 yards and bar two long bunker shots, the rest were manageable. Putting - really pleased again; I probably only made one that I wouldn't have expected (birdie on 13), but there's a lot of break on the greens and I thought it was pretty decent for a first time out in a while. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/930037 Overall, pretty close to where I'd want it to be, but a better decision on 6, some better drives and a bit more luck on odd holes (like 16) and it'd have been a great round. I'd take that for the first time in ages. Should be able to post some video this afternoon.
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      And also, "speculation" is what the thread is all about! Sure, I'm placing the Tour guys on a pedestal but they DESERVE it. Yes "Golf is Hard", but those guys are GOOD. Low 60s are very much a possibility in any tournament they tee it up in, let alone on a public course that was designed with the average golfer in mind. Let's give credit where credit is due! If all the players from 75-125 on the money list decided to go out and play a new course (of "moderate difficulty" for amateurs) every week for the next 2 months, course records would be getting smashed all over the place. They might shoot the odd 70 or 72, but you darn well bet there would be a lot of 63's and 64's in there too. Regardless of poor course conditions, lack of course knowledge or anything like that, they are gonna make birdies in droves and they are going to go low!
    • The this math does not compute thread
      I was at a garage sale with my son who was like 10 years old at the time. The seller had a box full of cheap toys with a handwritten sign on the box that read "$1 each, or 2 for $3".  I nudged my son and pointed to the sign with my eyes (because the seller was standing right there). He glanced down at the sign and immediately grinned and shook his head in disbelief. And don't get me going on auctions. People will pay more for used crap than they know they would if purchased brand new, simply because they get caught up in a bidding war. The best part is listening to them try and justify it afterwards.
