I play daily, plus a few times a week it's in 20-100 man fields where most of the guys are or were pros. It's lift clean n place short hair. Most of other rounds with pga pros of various levels. LCP is the norm, granted its Sfl where courses are built over swamps, but that's how we all play.
So when everyone is doing LCP it's not cheating as some say, its some of the best golfers in Sfl playing on courses that are usually abnormal ground conditions since every drive is either embedded or loaded with mud.
Of course, do what you like.
However, you'll not get much sympathy nor change any minds here, simply because this is a Rules folder not a What Kind of White Belt Do You Wear folder. Most here choose to play by the Rules.
