I know exactly the kind of people you are talking about! My local muni has a very nice chipping area but every time I go, there’d be a guy with lots of balls hogging the whole area so no one else can practice!
So is anybody else as bothered by guys who hit like 30 balls on the practice green? If it’s a huge practice area and late or very early and you have it to yourself i guess it’s ok but other than that I think it’s rude as hell. I’ve gone many time with my son and there are people hitting ball after ball after ball. I always tell my son to never be that guy. Is it just me or does anybody else feel my pain.
Played the "home" course today, no new holes to check off. Was a so-so round in terms of scoring, but a great round as it was my youngest son's first round ever of golf (he's 29). Had opportunities for a few birdies and pars but it was not to be, but a fun round anyway.
Got to play a "birthday round" today as it was my youngest son's birthday. Shot 103, but it was more about time on the course with him (it was the first round he's ever played, he's 29). Had a couple of opportunities at birdie and more for par which would have greatly lowered the score as these were either bogey or double scores. Also never got into a great rhythm but like I said it was about time with my son. Good thing, the new to me putter, an Odyssey White Steel 5, was a treat to putt with. Now to get the approach game back to speed. Several nGIRs as well. It is relaxing to "know" that GIR is not the end of the hole and that good nGIR's are the doors to par!
