I guess I am just a purest, but you don't get my kind of handicap using some fancy technology...you have to EARN it!!!
PS, I really am not a 36 handicap I just put that there for the fun of it. I really never calculated my handicap cause I really never cared. I just like to play
1) Hogan was once looking at an approach shot to a green and asked his caddy for the yardage. The caddy said "177 or 178". Hogan just stared at the guy for a minute and then said "well, which one".
2) I was watching an exhibition match in Louisville, Ky. back in 1972 between Arnie and Frank Beard. On the first hole Arnie had a short iron or wedge approach shot and hit it to the back of the green, 30 or so feet from the pin. I heard Arnie say to his caddie "I thought you said it was 125". The caddie said "it is 125" to which Arnie replied "it is 125 to my ball".
