What's your favorite to smoke on the course?

I have two I smoke on the course:

Front Nine: Partagas Black Label Maximo (the appetizer)

-Like an IV of expresso...an eye opener if you still got sleepy disposition

Back Nine: La Gloria Cubano Series R (the asskicker)

-not a cigar for beginners...this will either put smile on your face or make you hurl

I do not really have certain cigars for the course. I usually just open up the humidor and pick out about 4 or 5 to take with me. Some of the one I have enjoyed on the course are Punch Rare Corojo, Padron (many sizes), Hoyo Excalibur 1066 and Hoyo Dark Sumatra, just to name a few.

Personally, I don't like smoking cigars on the course as I never feel like I get the chance to relax and enjoy them. But I prefer Rocky Patel Vintage (90 or 92). Too many people I know have smoked these and swore they would never have anything else again. I also enjoy Fuente Chateau Fuente Maduro and CAO Italia or Brazilia.

I love my cigars. Have a nice humidor, and I keep it stocked. I prefer Padron, Excalibur, and El Rey del Mundo.

Never smoke on the course, though. First, we play early, and I can't do cigars at 6:00 am. Second, I'll go with Ogg. I just don't get the enjoyment I get when I sit down with a nice cigar and a single malt scotch and relax.

I feel a bit left out. I've never puffed a cigar before. Am I missing something - a lot of guys seem to do it?

Although I don't think I'm manly enough to smoke a cigar! :)

That's what get's me up in the morning of a round and keeps me going...Even though we are the first off in the morning, we play at a leisurely pace that allows me to enjoy the cigar. I usually light up on the putting green...

The only other time I smoke a cigar is when I visit my local steakhouse and we light up outside in the patio after dinner...

Don't feel left out. I think it actually takes a while to get some enjoyment out of them. Years ago, I would smoke them just when I was hanging with my buddies, a couple of times a year. A few years back, I had one and really enjoyed it so I picked up some more and realized it was something to enjoy every once in a while. My suggestion to start - get a Romeo & Julieta Cedro #2 or go to a local shop and ask for something mild. Try it and see what you think.

Fisher,

Any preference on the single malt? I have tried a large number, including Macallan 25 year old. I enjoy Dalmore, especially their cigar malt. I found a reasonably priced single malt called Lismore recently and was surprised how good it is. Got a good review online too. But the cigar malt is PERFECT with any type of smoke. I highly suggest it.

Definitely, start out on the mild side. The R&J; is a great choice or try any mild Arturo Fuentes. I didn't think I would enjoy a nice smoke after a hearty dinner, but my friends and I really get a chance to appreciate the quality of the cigar(s) . A good cigar is a good balance (a pickup) to the digestion of a good meal (a downer) and the nice warm kick of a cigar adds to the good time.

Really, anything. If it's first thing in the morning then I usually like something lighter like an AVO or Ashton. Otherwise my humidors are stocked with Punch, Padron, Bahia, Ramon Allones and many more.

Ah! A great subejct!!! For me, on the golf course, a short smoke is a better idea...so the Monte Christo No. 5 is just the right size, lasting only 3 holes max....but the best smoke for me after a round, is the Ramon Allones Special Selection. It's a robusto in size, and draws like an open door. here, we only smoke Cuban.

I like Sancho Panza's - for the money they are superb IMHO, of course cigar taste is as individual as food taste. Also like CAO Camaroon's the Toro in particular.

Good man. No mild smokes for you. I'm a bold cigar man myself. My current favorite stick is La Flor Dominicana Double Legero Chisel. I do like the Series R alot.

It took a bit of time for my constitution to enjoy the Series R, but after getting use to the rush it gives I was fine. I'm going by the cigar shop today and I think I might look that stick up...Thanks for the heads up...

    • It looks like the same scenario as DJ and Wattel in the open. Proximity of the golfer on the ground deforms the ground and it rolls off the blades of grass it was perched on. I think it's a bad penalty, because it's essentially random, though much more likely on very fast & sloped greens.
    • I liked Chappell as a possible pick early in the playoffs. He's a solid ballstriker with good length and the original 8 were a little thin there. If his putting has come alive during the playoffs (he's 'found' something) and his birdie average has bumped up then he would be a solid pick IMO. I think he'd be more of a contributor in fourball than foursomes with relatively weaker putting / short game than guys already on the team. Berger seems to have the most balanced game of the remaining pick options. McGirt and Woodland wouldn't be bad picks either. Justin Thomas may be a good 'chemistry' pick, but his stats for the year seem like he's got a very 'hit or miss' style of game. Maybe he was saving it for the end of the season, though? Moore would be an okay pick, but I expect he's a little short for Hazeltine (ballstriking is not his strength) and the squad already has Sneds and Zach. Duf wouldn't be a bad pick either if his game is on form and his putting has warmed up a bit.
    • On the penalty assessed to Justin Thomas, this will lead all golfers to mark their ball before putting anything but a tap in.  If he marks the ball and the places the ball back down, the ball probably won't move as it did.  With millions on the line, a player needs to mark the ball and inspect the putting surface.  Just a bad rule in my opinion but the ruling was correct.  Guilty until proven innocent.
    • If it is a municipal (city owned) course there may be no support from the city to maintain it beyond the absolute minimum. Truth is, cities have budgets and there is no money appropriated to improve it.  It really is a vicious circle.  Poorer conditions result in fewer rounds being played.  Costs out weigh revenue, rates are raised so even fewer people play the course and that results in less revenue.  It becomes an anchor on the city budget and easy prey for an investor.  So many muni courses have disappeared.

    • After reading all these stories of how rarely it has happened to you guys I feel like an absolute menace on the golf course.   First time I ever hit into a group in front of me it was a blind approach into the green.  I drove my cart to the top of the hill to get a line on the flag.  One guy was getting his ball out of the hole and another guy was carrying the flag back to the hole.  I figured that by the time I got back to my ball they would be gone.  I lined up my shot, took several practice swings, checked my line again, and then blasted a beautiful, high, straight shot over the hill, right on line at the flag.  Pulled back up the hill and saw they were still putting.  Went up to apologise, and they congratulated me on a great shot.  He said it clipped the brim of his hat as he was tapping in and checked up a foot from the cup.  They also insisted that I play thru. Second time I did it on that course I sliced my drive two fairways over and hit into a cart on the move up the cart path. It rattled around in the cart and they both dove out of the cart for cover. Happened a few times on my home course too.  Several holes have blind drives and approaches due to all the hills in East Tennessee.  When play is slow you inevitably catch someone in a blind spot.  I got stuck behind a slow group one day and had to wait for ever shot from the 4th hole on.  By the 6th a young twosome had caught up to my group because of the slow play in front of us.  By the back nine they started getting impatient and driving onto us.  On hole 14 the preferred shot is to hit 170-200 yard layup from the tee to leave a 130-160 yard uphill shot into a blind green.  I was about 150 yards out waiting on the green to clear when they teed off.  Their ball rolled right up to my feet.  I turned around angry and hit their ball right back at them.  I was so ticked I blasted my 150 yard club at least 200 yards back at them flying over their head and into the woods behind the tees.  Didn't see them anymore that day.
