2,1,1,2. The only time we are yelling "four" seems like when we are playing through another group. And about half of that time is because the group we are playing through decides to stand somewhere where they might have a chance to get hit. Get the hell completely out of the way.
I hit into a downed elm tree last week (marked ground under repair) on the left side of the fairway and my group saw my ball go into the branches. My partner parked his cart to the right of the tree and got out on the left side to help search. After about 2 minutes of wading through the area I started getting pissed and drove in a circle around the area to cover ground quickly and then saw my ball in the fairway just 2 feet right of my partner's cart (ball was muddy so not an obvious white orb). I figured it was close to 3 minutes but not more. My partners all agreed it was under 3 minutes. Since no one had a watch or bothered to put the clock on, what is the ruling?
Thanks for the feedback. I had actually recorded these in high speed with my iPhone, but uploading them to my computer removed the effect. I'll try trimming them in iMovie and seeing if I can keep the high speed effect by importing them through that.
Could you explain what you mean by having my lower body support the turn more?
Just because of the layout of the course I play at most frequently, I yell more often than if I'd play elsewhere. A lot of parallel holes early and late in the round. Early... people haven't warmed up and are figuring out their swing (plus the second green is reachable from the tee and is directly next to the third tee). Late... people are tired (or not as sober as when they'd started).
I hit someone about two weeks after joining this club. He was walking out of the trees down the left side... I hit a quick hook... I yelled... he tried to jump over the ball and it caught him in the shin. Two days later, I almost hit someone else on another hole. It's made me very vigilant and a little 'quick on the draw' when it comes to yelling fore!
