Hello From Vaughan, Ontario

Recommended Posts

Hello folks,

Just dropping a line to introduce myself to the forum. Discovered the forum after finding Dave and Erik's stuff online. Went through the LSW videos etc. A lot of their ideas around the 5-keys and separation value resonated with me.

Been playing somewhat regularly for around 8 years or so with my handicap around +18. I don't practice enough to lower that further, and even when I manage to tune up my game to consistently break 90, the winter layoff in ontario means that I have to rediscover everything starting in May. So typically start of the season hovering around +24 and then gradually work down closer to +18 by end of season ... With the extended COVID layoff here in Ontario, I have tried to invest in equipment and more time practicing at home, and hopefully that pays off when the courses finally open!

Looking forward to participating in the forum.

    • What is there to be confused about? You haven't taken relief until you are taking FULL relief, meaning you aren't standing on the path (or whatever it is). So--- the closest position is the closest position. Otherwise, in the illustration below, relief would be at B2 if you were on the right hand side of the path (or whatever). Which wouldn't be relief.    
    • Yes I know all of that. But we are measuring the distance between where the ball lies and the distance where the ball could be dropped nearest on either side of the hazard, right? (yes including that you mustn’t stand in the hazard after taking relief)
    • Stance is required to be included in taking relief. 16.1a(1) specifies inclusion of intended stance, and the diagram in your link demonstrates it:  
    • The nearest point of relief could have you standing in brambles or with no swing at all. Relief doesn’t imply that you have a swing at all, let alone a clear shot.  Relief is about the ball position, nothing else.
