  1. 1. Do you play Dick Out? Do you enforce it?

I suppose you could say we always "play" Dick Out, but we never enforce it. We just use it as another way to rib the guy who didn't make the ladies tee... which happens, at most, two or three times per 400 person-rounds played.

If you don't make the ladies tee you should just go home.

I disagree with this statement. I have had a few instances the past year where I didn't get it past the women's tee box, and I either saved par or made bogey. I always try to make the most out of a hole no matter how bad the tee shot is. You drive for show and putt for dough. The tee shot is just one shot.

I think I actually left one short of the ladies tee box at the Newport Cup. As for enforcing it, we never do. It's more of a joke thing when I play with friends. If we did enforce it, my best friend (Indian Sensation here at The Sand Trap) would have to play in the nude pretty much. He has a drive or two every time we play that doesn't make it past the ladies tee box. But he is learning and is trying to minimize his losses.

Weird, I haven't heard "Dick Out", or "D.O." as we used to call it, since my beginning days of golf 18 years ago. Now, I 've heard people mention it 2 times this week. In anycase, no D.O. over hear. Just some serious poop talkin'!

Same here Cody...joked about, but rarely enforced. I've only ever seen one person 'do the deed' and he did it on his own. This guy was having a horrible day and toward the end of the round managed to top one short of the women's tee and pulled it out.

I think it was the only time I saw him smile the entire round.

Just don't tell me it was your dad. I don't want to think about that as we tear up Lake View next year...

Years ago a friend of mine held ME to the rule. I promply knocked a 3 wood from the ladies tee on the par 4 onto the green, all with my shorts around my ankles. I made the birdie putt and collected his money...

I bet it was easier to feel which way the breeze was blowing.

I have a couple friends that will totally drop trow when they don't get past the ladies tees. Shorts around the ankles seems to interfere with the follow through. Everyone else I play with just jokes about it.

We don't play it but instead, the one who doesn't get it by the ladies tee has to buy a round of drinks for the group. Sorry but I could not find interest in other men swinging in the breeze. Now if I was with 3 ladies and had to play D.O. then I would probably mishit every tee shot have to play 18 naked.

Yeah man we play it and we enforce it. We wait till we get up to the clubhouse then yell "Oi mate, your round, remember #15 tee. The whole clubhouse has a laugh. It's happens to everyone so no one really cares at my club. We always cough up though.

Funny story;The Mrs.and I were playing the Dunes club in Myrtle and they hooked us up with 2 male members of the club.Well low and behold on the famous #15 one of them tops his tee ball and his buddy starts to call it remembers that my wife is there and stops mid sentence.My wife immediatly speaks up and says "OK Pal Drop Em"Well needless to say the rest of the round was more fun than golf and we got invited in for drinks after.{we could'nt stay cause we had another 18 at Tidewater up the road}but I'm sure they will never forget the moment.

    • I’ve used Golfshot in the past. 18Birdies has a watch app that I used a couple times.  GameGolf has one. There are others, I’m sure.  I currently use the watch app for Arccos, because I use that tracking system. Not sure about the “disappeared off the watch” problem.  I don’t recall doing anything special for setup, but whenever I raise my wrist with a round going, it’s got my yardage right there (Arccos and Golfshot for sure, I think it did with GameGolf, don’t remember with 18Birdies). Maybe try (in the Apple Watch app on the iPhone): General > wake screen > wake on wrist raise (and) Return to clock after 1 hour.  I don’t know of a way to improve battery life in the watch, but I usually put my iPhone in low power mode when I play, and that helps prolong the iPhone battery without adversely affecting the golf app function.  But using 21% of battery for a round doesn’t seem excessive (meaning you finished the round with 79% left).
    • Just finished LSW, great info.  Now I just need to apply it so I can claim a few achievements for actually shooting lower scores.
    • Work, life & rereading some chapters 3 times slowed down my reading of LSW but I did finish it tonight.  I think it merits more reads as the season progresses since some aspects can’t be practiced with snow on the ground.  I need to work out my shot zones and need to figure out how to do that.  I do not know a range where I can walk out to my target to plot them as suggested.  I am wondering if it can be done with TrackMan Range? Or if a fellow Michigander can suggest a place it would be appreciated. One thing caught me by surprise, I’ve read many comments about shot cones and expected to read about them in LSW, but I did not.  I’ll look back on Threads to see where I saw that and what they are. My main question is for myself, why did I wait nearly 9 months after joining TST to order the book.  
    • Looking for some help on the above. Have had a Garmin watch for a few years without any issues and recently received the Apple Watch as a gift.   So far I’ve tried SwingU ( couldn’t make it work), Golfshot( it worked but disappeared off the watch every time I move my wrist )The Grint , mixed success.  I’ve used The Grint on four or five rounds ,couple of times it randomly disappears but easy enough to get back on.  last week it completely flattened my phone battery,49% usage.  I switched off 4G & background app refresh and next round had only 1% usage. Cracked it I thought, but today with the same settings it used 21% “ Location activity” 1 minute on screen, 3hr 39 in background . I probably don’t have the settings correct, any advice on that or on an app that you have successfully used appreciated.  I only need the gps for distance, nothing else
