So you go up the snakes and down the ladders? Don't try that with my grandkids.

Ha, that's funny. Here in the US we call it "Shoots and Ladders".

Thanks to Milton Bradley.

It's a really old Indian (as in Asia Indian) game also known as Moksha Patam.

Oh yeah. It's Chutes and Ladders. Like down the chute. Less moralistic or something like that.

Shoots and ladders..... it's like "He shoots and scores!" or "He shoots and ladders!" 

 

Okay, I'm an idiot.

I just assume everyone "wants" to play by the rules..... am I wrong? 

I have encountered much reluctance to play by USGA rules that make the game "too hard". Examples are no automatic two-putts on temporary greens, balls that are lost because they embedded are still lost, bare ground is not GUR, mud is not temporary water, penalty relief area may be on a cart path, no relief from divots, no relief from boundary fence, no line of play relief from immovable obstructions, etc.

Golf is just a difficult game because of the required precision needed to hit strait-isn shots when the downswing is a fraction of a second in duration. 

Golf rule are made because they are fair and for the most part simple to understand. This means, there are not 100 different situations for one rule. Which is good. None of your examples are anything to complain about regarding the rules. Honestly, you don't encounter those situations that much to say it make golf excessively hard.

    • Cracked driver on Thursday and injured eye and WD on Friday. Not the US Open he was looking for.  
    • The player did not violate rule 4.2a that covers non-conforming golf balls. The penalty for breaking that rule is DQ. Instead, the player broke the "one ball rule" - see Committee Procedures chapter 8, model local rule G-4. The player gets the general penalty (two strokes) for each hole mistakenly played with a different brand or model ball (until the mistake is discovered). Intentionally playing a different brand or model penalty is DQ. See the rule for details.   
    • When was Arizona? Like back then. 😛  They are tasty, but I don't get the hype.  I am game for some small money games. I like the idea of skins, maybe a pot for net and gross skins. 
    • I had a weird experience with Peacock this morning.  My YTTV isn't working well for some reason (been an issue the past few days), so I used the app.  I signed up for free Peacock, watched Torrey on my laptop but couldn't cast to the TV.  So I installed the app on my TV but when I logged in there, I could only follow the featured group.  Is anyone else watching it (not right now, just in general) on free peacock?
