Note to Media: Knee-Height Drops Make Sense!

We're in that special hell of rules controversies with the implementation of the new Rules of Golf. There have been some growing pains with the new rules, and that has allowed the golf media to tee off on its favorite target, the USGA. Which, to be fair, can make itself an easy target: https://www.golfdigest.com/story/despite-harsh-words-from-some-tour-pros-usga-pleased-with-roll-out-of-new-rules-of-golf. That aside, I wanted to talk about the "controversy" about the knee-height drop

Welcome and First Mistake

Welcome to my blog. I've decided to do something a little bit different from a normal golf blog by focusing a bit more on the Rules of Golf. The impetus behind this blog is that I volunteered to be the Rules Chairman for my men's club this fall. Now, I am of fairly sound mind, but volunteering to do that is probably a bit crazy.

    • I agree and should have looked at the calendar closer before I committed.  I guess I could call Joe and give up the freebie and stretch out the others.  I’m not sure of their policy but they are usually very client focused.
    • It's your money… I'm just not sure I understand committing to paying for four but having them so rushed… I feel like paying for one a month might be a better long-term plan, even if you don't get the "fifth" lesson for "free."
    • Yes, that is a concern since it will limit practice time between lessons.  I have worked range time into my calendar so there will be practice just not as much as I expect to need.  Joe and I discussed this and we will spend multiple lessons on similar aspects of the game and some of the lessons will be reinforcing the prior lesson, not necessarily introducing a new area to focus on.
    • That’s a lot of lessons in a very short time. My more studious players come every few weeks.
    • Maybe true.  I have decided that what I have been doing is not working so I am open to change at this time.  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over & over and expecting a different result.  I want a different result.
