I'm a golfer caught with the crazy bug this year and played more rounds that I have in the past 8 years combined. It's been a fun journey. I'm working on new swing new grip so my game is fluctuating like crazy. I have a high HCP: 19.9. I have an ambitious goal of lowering this to the 10-12 range by end of next year. I'm documenting my journey through YouTube vlog and excited to share it with everyone. 

I also got coaching for the first time, but everything is a work in progress at the moment.. a lot of 3 putts.

    • Aaahhh, gotcha.  I knew he'd used the original system, that should make his transition a little easier than mine.  Maybe.
    • I mean, to be clear, I just gave him one. So he's as new at it as you will be. And he plays a lot more infrequently. 😄
    • I would think this is a task to be done before the final vote on the issue.  Its one thing to have the small group define an intention, the details may take a while to work through.  
    • This. I totally agree. Again, if you can read your book or read the green or stick up your fingers (aim point), I don't mind at all. Just enforce pace of play. 
    • I have two thoughts. First, @DaveP043, the PGA Tour could request from the USGA a Local Rule or a "waiver" or whatever it's called. The USGA might just add it to the Model Local Rules. You can implement a bunch of Local Rules, the "Models" are just the ones you can copy/paste and don't really need "permission" to use. If the PGA Tour bans them I imagine the USGA/R&A might adopt or help them craft the language for a new Model Local Rule. The second thought is this: who cares what they've got written down if you enforce pace of play policies? Green reading charts aren't just used to putt - players use them in the fairways, or on the tees of par threes. Writing a Local Rule against them may be difficult. If the true problem is "slow play" then fix that. If the true problem is "de-skilling" the game, then they may go the Local Rule route. @ncates00, this topic ain't about arm lock putting, and nobody is saying "putting is easy." They're saying "green reading should be a skill" (with no real evidence that players who use green reading books putt any better than those who don't).
