I do miss the handshake on 18.  Our deal now is we touch putter heads after the round.  I still remove my cap/hat when doing so.  

Not a fan of this. I’m not going to mess up the finish on my putter for not good reason.

I’ve been doing the elbow bump, air fist bump, or tipping my hat at people after a round.

Yes!  I did this in the last few in-person meetings I had back in March and I didn't know why others were doing it, but I followed along.  I knew the reference, I just didn't know what the health thing going on was that caused it.  I hope this trend continues even after the pandemic.

It’s just me and my husband on the weekend rounds. I played a few times with friends and we just waved goodbyes. No one is touching anything or getting within 6 feet of each other.

I started with that, but now I pretty much extend my middle finger and raise it into the air.

In Legion baseball they tip caps to each other after the game instead of handshakes.  That can work for golf too.

Bumping the grip ends of the putter avoids this problem.

    • You know, as a musician I find a lot of similarities between learning a musical instrument and golf. I don’t think I’ve found any two hobbies more similar.    When it comes to equipment, the similarities hold true. A professional guitarist will be able to make a cheap First Act guitar from Walmart sing in the same way a scratch golfer will play scratch golf regardless if he uses his own clubs or yours. The overall result is pretty much the same regardless of the equipment. The skill of the player eclipses it in importance.    I think in both hobbies, cheap equipment has come a long way, to the point where the differences are subtle. In golf I notice more expensive clubs have less cosmetic defects. The material is better, meaning the clubs are less likely to break, and definitely in the case of wedges/irons wear down. But is that to say a cheap club is going to break in a year? Probably not. To be honest, most of it just feel. The strike of an expensive club feels smoother, sounds better, and frankly is a more enjoyable experience in most cases to hit. 
    • So, that's really a thing? Never even heard of it. 
    • @ajl, it seems to me that what you're asking isn't about the performance or design differences between one set of irons from one manufacturer versus another, but simply what the difference between a premium set of golf clubs and a generic or a knockoff set is? The answer, as in all products in life, comes down to quality. A premium manufacturer cares if their manufacturing process produces X% variation from club to club which can result in differences in performance from set to set. A clone company won't and they know their customers don't, so they don't invest the time or money into having higher manufacturing tolerances.

    • Are you kidding me? I’m in first place and did not get my alert this week.  Another season torched  because of failed reminders (I know it’s ultimately my fault but I’m pissed regardless)
