No driving range white noise? Or maybe New Yorkers "colorfully vocalize" too much about their wayward shots that it is no longer a soothing background?

Your phone is a portable microphone.

Yup, a couple of those in the playlist are via my smartphone, the mic isn't that great though, but good enough.

That's a great idea. Should have recorded the range when I went to the PGA Tour event. Will record the local range next time out. Should record a subway trip as well. 

Have also since added hiking backgrounds and a sports event stadium background. This list is getting really good. 

The irony of listening to white noise to drown out conversations at a cafe/cowork/library doesn't escape me.

What's wrong with quiet?

;-) 

Open air working environments suck. Can't think because people talking doing whatever. Must drown out. This is a fact of life of the modern working space. All those companies espousing modern workspace setups are just trying to squeeze as much money as they can given the space there is. They're not trying to help the typical office worker, they're making it worse.

Just try getting complete silence in a working environment if you don't have your own office door to close.

Believe you me, I want silence.

The list grows.

Added some PGA Tour range audio and now can listen to golf shots as white noise.

I'm not sure what this audio content is.Are you talking about the random people hitting golf balls? TV announcers ?

    • Making up a poll where 100%of sane responders say the same thing is not "discussing". You may as well ask whether anyone thinks baseballs might replace golf balls in some major tournaments at some time in the future. In EVERY genuine classification, Tiger exceeds Snead, in case you were wondering. Except, perhaps smoking.
    • I saw this on the local news:   It's heart breaking.   OREM, Utah (AP/Meredith) — Authorities say a 6-year-old Utah girl has died after her father accidentally hit her with a golf ball. Police say the ball struck the girl in the back of the head on Monday morning, while the father and daughter were golfing at Sleepy Ridge Golf Course in Orem. The ball collided with the base of her neck. Lt. Trent Colledge with the Orem Police Department says she was flown to a hospital in Salt Lake City in critical condition. She died from her injuries later that evening. Family members later identified the girl as Aria Hill. A GoFundMe page has raised more than $11,000 to cover her funeral expenses. "We are so grateful for all the love, support, and prayers made in our behalf during this difficult time," a statement on the page reads. "We've truly felt comforted. Aria was the sassiest girl in the world. She was silly, spunky, creative, unique, and so so full of love for everyone she came in contact with. There is a huge hole in our hearts that she has taken with her back to Heaven...Fly high my little angel" Police are investigating but are not planning to pursue charges because it appears to have been a tragic accident. 
    • Ah, just checked the op’s hcp, he stated it as 11.x. Well the answer on the original question is that its a good thing. Your handicap will go up and reflect your true golf abilties at the moment. Looks to me like your current handicap is a bit to low. 
    • In who's view was it embedded? Was it solidly embedded? The referee may well have determined it was not. Rule 23-1 no longer exists of course.
    • I certainly wouldn't buy a book about golf entitled Highest Score Wins. I'm wondering how you're shooting north of 100 in competition as an 11 handicap.   When you say you're taking more time on certain aspects, do you mean towards improving or are you taking five minutes for each putt? There are plenty of good players who have aspects of their game that significantly lag behind.  Stan Utley made some good money in professional golf, even before his teaching career, despite not driving it much past your average scratch player.  Boo Weekley won on the PGA Tour despite putting at about a ten handicap level.  You don't have to improve all aspects of your game uniformly.  If you have a glaring weakness (compared to your general ability level), work on that a little more.  For example, I was having 5-7 strokes lost putting per round a month ago, so I upped my putting practice.  Now I'm a little worse than my handicap level at it, but it isn't this horrible thing standing out.   Of course, figuring out what a glaring weakness really is is difficult.  I encourage you to carefully read the following thread:  not just the title, but the content, paying particular attention to the suggestions from professionals and low handicaps who comment on it.  It should help guide your practice in a good way.
