When I played it I had a 5-iron from the left rough but an insanely good lie so I was able to get it to the green (and 3-putt, of course).
But yeah, if you're not sitting up like I was, that's some of the thickest rough on the golf course.
I had to laugh, I'm also getting old enough that I'm almost impervious to any attempts to PC-ify me. Likewise, I try to treat everyone I meet with respect, until I find out that they don't deserve it. I treat each person as an individual, not as a member of whatever minority group they may fall under. but I use descriptive terms that have long gone out of style. If your grandparents were born in this country, you don't get to be a (pick your minority, African/Polish/Asian/Irish/whatever)-hyphenated-American, you're just an American in my book.
So I say, go ahead and PC-ify the HR language, it doesn't affect me, and from where I sit, makes an outstanding university look just a little silly. But then I play golf, and lots of times golf makes ME look kinda silly.
Thanks for the tips.
I went to the range today and tried to shallow my swing a bit.
It's still pretty steep but it's improved a little I guess.
It looks like a slice but if you look at my feet I'm actually aimed there (I know, I have to fix this too)
I guess tee height is a matter of preference although the case can be made for going either direction i.e. high or low. I did notice that at the Las Vegas Country Club, standard length wooden tees are provided. Coincidence? I can not say if the members use them or bring their own. (I usually grab a hand full however). I normally use standard tees and they seem to work better for me than the 3 1/4.
