I use headphones when I get to play by myself, and very occasionally at the driving range. Pretty much exclusively listening to podcasts.
I don't really notice any difference in my play out on the course - I've shot some of my best rounds with headphones off. I haven't used them enough while practicing to notice any difference there.
If you're ending up in one of those lies once or twice a round then you probably need to improve your game planning/understand your shot zones better.
There have been some times where half of my shot zone is off the green to the left to completely take a bunker on the right out of play.
Nobody has the "right" to be here.
You're all here because I allow you to be, and it IS my right to change my mind at any time, or to ban anyone I want, etc. This is my property, my service, etc. I own it. You have almost no rights at all here.
That having been said…
