  1. I'm looking for a decent golf game to help me develop my course management skills. I have tried a few but they seem to be more about pure entertainment and selling you new clubs, just like the real thing. The best I've found so far is WGT which works well on an iPad. Does anyone else have any recommendations?
  2. Drop zones: optional or not?

    That sounds interesting. What's that?
  3. So sand and dirt are not loose impediments off the green? Doesn't seem at all intuitive to me, but then no reason the rules should be! Thx.
  4. Drop zones: optional or not?

    'May or must'. So it looks like a DZ could be obligatory if the committee decides, apart from retaking the shot from the original spot?
  5. Drop zones: optional or not?

    I thought I made that clear, I'll try again: There is a drop zone.
  6. I always took for granted that even if I was off the green, I was allowed to removed loose debris from my line of putt. A pretty knowledgeable friend tells me I am not, only when one the green, and he'd been penalised in a comp for doing so. Can anyone clarify? Thanks
  7. Let's say you have a DZ next to a yellow or red area and my ball inevitably goes into the hazard. Is the DZ obligatory or is it one of my several options? Thx
  8. I joined a gym 7 months ago and have been through a similar problem to you. I'm doing lots of reps of light weights, working on core strength, general tone and fitness, and doing stretching. The stretching is not new and I have a routine based on yoga/Pilates, although I am doing more of it. I found that with the reawakening of many muscles (that's the best way I can describe it), my strength has changed and my swing often collapses for days at a time. So far I just plough on and avoid heavy weights or anything akin to bulking up, and practice a lot. I wish I had a solution for you beyond common sense. Good luck.
  9. Surely there are games these days that are more sofisticated than that?
  10. Hi all. I'm looking for a good game I can play on an iPad that will help me think about course management.mhave tried a few but most seem to be simply a game, rather than anything that might help train. Currently trying WGT but feel there must be better out there. Thanks.
  11. Some fair points but you lost me at "the gay community". Some won't give a shit, some will be outraged. The community does not have one voice. And you certainly are not their voice. Calm down.
  12. Push/Pull cart rules and/or etiquette...

    That's true, assuming your wheels are wide ish. Their assumption is that if everyone goes around the outer edge of the green then there'll be an eventual buildup of damage, and people will often putt from a long way off the green because it's so difficult to get a wedge to stick (thanks Royal Melbourne!). From time to time they disallow it but I couldn't say why.
  13. Cannot hit 3 wood

    Thanks all for the tips. Next time I hit the range I'll try them out and failing that, take a vid. I had thought of getting a 2 hybrid but Callaway don't seem to make them in the model I'm using (and happy with-Edge Tour).
  14. My 3 wood was my favourite club until I finally learned how to be consistent with my driver. Now I can't seem to hit it with consistency. It goes more or less straight but no height. Looks like a stinger or daisycutter. I have no problem with a 3 hybrid (21*) and my driver (10.5*) is also good. But the 3W(15*) gets left in the bag. Haven't spent hours trying to sort this out but it's starting to bug me. Any ideas?
