I have been enjoying golf these past two years. I enjoy meeting people and playing with friends. When you meet a person through the lens of golf for four hours, it is long enough to be a journey. I like how the conversation is just golf at the beginning - yet I always come away knowing if the others have kids and what they do for a living or what brought out a dedicated single that day. At the end of the round, when we shake hands and exchange courtesies, I sincerely mean it. Well, almost every time. I do not know what to do now. I watch the hand coming at me now, and not the eyes. Is it a fist or open? One person even waved at me.
I miss the hand shake. I find it a meaningful end to a privileged day. What have you been doing? (if admin wants to add a poll, go ahead.)
Paging a few others, too… @klineka, @ChetlovesMer, @Slice of Life, @vasaribm… @Divot Master… I'll think of others.
If you know of others I've forgotten, tag them or, better yet, send them a message directly.
I agree with retired. Public golf courses should have reasonable pin placement. If it’s a TPC or the likes I get it but for a course I can just walk in and play it shouldn’t be like a Sunday at a major. I’m not saying it should be smack in the middle of all the greens but someplace on the green that’s playable for the most part. If i have to drop to my knees and pray it doesn’t roll off the front of the green after i hit it 1 ft past the hole its diabolical.
