They say it’s been allowed on some courses. I just can’t imagine too many letting these guys crowd the tee times. Maybe a course that’s hurting for business? And I assume you charge the same green fee rate? Dress codes? Yeah….I dunno….not too big on this one.

They probably have to pay the same rates so it won’t hurt the course in that aspect.

For those who have tried golf a few times and find it too frustrating(like my wife), I can see where this might be fun for some. Consider me open minded. But that is coming from a snow boarder and someone who also enjoys disc golf as well.  🙂

It seems it would be difficult to get the ball to stop on the green. Bump and run can be judged. But let’s say a 150-170yd…it’d be hard to hurl the ball far enough to get there but with a high enough trajectory to stay on the green. Seems like every shot outside 100yds would have to be a bump and run.

Let's see... how many things can you do on a golf course?  Uh, fling golf, foot golf, regular golf, sled in the winter, ice skate on the ponds, cross-country ski, have keggers, have parties, have sex... the list goes on.  Mary Queen of Scots is turning over in her grave.

Did they reattach the head?

Not sure what the point of this game is. You could just do it on a football field. Why take up space on a golf course? Also they’e from Ipswich, MA. I’ve never seen anything like this around here.

To her driver?  She was always adjusting loft and draw bias so understandable she could have lost her head.  An adjustable wrench or a Torx screwdriver and it goes back on easily.

If I got held up by a group of guys playing this in front of me….someone’s going home with a broken toy. Lol.

I think John Rahm or Tyrell Hatton would be good candidates for fling golf. As long as they could fling the club with the ball...

    • I don't tweet much, although I do have an account for following other people, including Erik. I think the key will be stokes gained approach.
    • Matt, good stuff lately. 
    • For me, this highlights the 2019 rule change that no longer limits this type of penalty to 4 strokes (or the error/mistake being active for 2 holes), but instead carries on, per hole, until the problem is corrected.  That is something I just learned now, so thanks, I guess? FWIW, this means that if you forget a 15th club in your bag and play the whole round with it, you need to add a cool 36 strokes to your (let's call it not great to begin with) 95, to end up with an absurdly high smooth 131!  Wow.  The only silver lining I see is that since you get to only record a net double for handicap purposes, that round may end up being recorded with ESC as a 104 instead...  🙂
    • Day Eighteen, June 12, 2021. Played 18 today. First ever bogey free round. 1 eagle, 1 birdie, and 16 pars, 68.
    • I don’t see why the PGA/LPGA/Champions don’t play a mixed tournament from 3 different tees. Each tour competing against itself, but playing a 3-some, one person from each.  I think it’d be one hell of a tournament with something for everyone.
