Two cases of damages driver on the course, seldom happens...but it a true story....

* Case A / Player A was swinging in his own garden yard, he accidentally hit his driver on the his lamp post and had a hole and dent on the face of the driver. He than proceed to play a few games and his driver performed even better than usual ! He cont. to play with it even his flights mate notice the damage and informed him about it, being a possible case of nonconforming driver!

True or False


*Case B / Player B was angry with his drive, as he walk back to his buggy, he dump his diver hard into his bag, the head hit hard against the metal bar at the back of the buggy. It damage by denting the face of the driver. he played two more holes only to discover his drive distance is only 180m (usual drive 220m). He than proceed to borrow from his flight mate drivers to play ! Is player B playing by the Rules ??

Not to sure about "case A" but I'd say false and maybe noncomforming.
As for "case B", that's false and he is not playing by the rules of golf. Well, assuming this is in a sanctioned event, but if it's just a laid-back weekend round, I wouldn't mind it

Neither case is even close to being permitted by the rules.

Actually, Zeg, if he and his partner together had 14 clubs or fewer (before the driver smash), then borrowing a club would be legal.

Ok, in the event that they're playing partners in a team format, and the extremely unlikely event that they each started with 7 or fewer clubs, that aspect is not a problem.

Still, the player apparently played a couple holes with it after damaging it through other than the normal course of play, so at the very least there's a penalty there.

    • Sounds like he may have originated from my neck of the woods,   ‘Awayanbileyerheid’ is a fairly humorous response to someone ,  sort of like ,get lost your talking drivel (nonsense) If you want to get an insight of the meaning , Google ‘ Parliamo Glasgow’ -;))
    • I don’t think there is anything wrong with watching YouTube golf instruction videos, if and only if you stick to one or two instructors. I personally like Matt Fisher and Danny Maude myself.    Funny story: I played golf with three guys I haven’t seen in person since about 2003 today. Anyway one of the guys I played with, reminded me of a video I watched on posture recently, with Danny Maude. Me as a low single figure handicap my arms look like / at address down the line. You want them like | or \ slightly on the latter. My posture sucks… and I shot 1 under on the back today.
    • Can you share some information about your computer, such as OS?
    • There used to be a joke about the instructional articles in Golf Digest.  It might still be there, I haven't subscribed in years.  Anyway, every odd-numbered month, the lesson would be "fix your slice," but what they wouldn't tell you is that it'd cost you 10 yards.  In even numbered months, they'd tell you how to gain 10 yards on your tee shot, but not tell you that it'd cause you to slice. YouTube instruction is a bit like that.  You'll get conflicting information that may or may not cancel out.  Find someone reputable and get lessons for you not for some generic you. If you need someone online to give you something to work on, and don't feel like spending the money for something quality like Evolvr (hey, money was tight when I took up golf, I understand), at least make a "My Swing" thread and try what ends up being suggested for you.  The first time I did this, I was shocked at how someone could watch a few swings on video and give me good advice of what to practice that resulted in some improvement.
    • No. At best you’re going to get conflicting advice that may or may not work with other things you’re trying to do in your swing.
