I'm with you, brother. If you are playing a casual round, do what ever you want. I couldn't care less what you write down on your scorecard. Personally, I'm trying to improve and learn to play in tournaments and competitive events (granted against hcp), so I really try to follow the rules.
And to be honest, most of them aren't that difficult. Every now and then I come across a one that I'm confused on.
Good for you. Congratulations.
People who don't golf, don't get it.
As a person who's not naturally good at golf, I can really appreciate the achievement. Seriously, it IS a great feeling and a great achievement. ENJOY
This seems to happen all the time. I used to be a little league umpire and if a kid got called out he was normally fine with it. I mean disappointed, but fine. The coaches, however, were sometimes huge D-bags. I once had a coach pull his team off the field because of a fair ball vs foul ball call. I umpired for two seasons and I probably have 100 stories of D-bag coaches or parents. ... Parents I sometimes get. They don't always know the rules. But coaches... come on.
