I would like to post a "for sale" add. It will not let me. I read the rules. So why wont it let me post?

You have 10 posts. You didn't read the rules very carefully.

This site is not for the sole purpose of selling stuff. You need to be an actual productive member by contributing to other threads in other parts of the forums.

wow!! you really have a very difficult time understanding questions for some reason. First of all your rules do not PLAINLY STATE how many posts you must have. "READ YOUR RULES"!! I asked a simple question as to how many post I must have and instead of being polite and just answering my question, you have to offer me a "dig". Then I ask how to up my status on here so that I may be allowed to advertise, and you completely skirt the question by explaining to me what the intent of this site is all about.

I DO take time and look over what other golfers have to say about topics on here, and have found them quite delightful. Maybe you should take a few lessons, and I am not talking about golf lessons, and try to be a bit more helpful, instead of trying to just insult people. But its all explained when I see that you are from Erie, Pennsylvania. I live just south of you an hours drive. I have played a few amateur tournaments with people from Erie, and found them to be arrogant. (sorta like yourself).

If your main reason for joining the site is to advertise then this might not be the right place for you. Trying to say that as politely as I can.

I enjoy reading what other golfers have to say about different courses and all. I don't just use a site to sell items which I rarely do. I thought I asked a simple question and got what I would call, and other people a "negative" response. If you do not allow me to sell golf items that is just fine. There is other places I can go. But usually sites like this you can find more of what I call trusting people. I am an avid skeet shooter, trapshooter, and rifle shooter and find that sites dedicated to the sport, (like yours), is a better place to buy.

Seems pretty clear to me golfer2b2000.

BTW your reputation is now mysteriously a 9 instead of the 10 required to reach Established Member status.

Arrogance has nothing to do with this. You didn't read the rules despite saying you had. It's the first link in the first paragraph of the rules at the top of the Marketplace forum.

    • Not an individual tournament but with a partner(s), sure. Even if it's another low handicapper we can compete if we play well but most likely won't win. I agree with you what you're saying. Most of the club tournaments I play in have a gross division so it's not a big deal. One tournament where I've seen low handicappers have an advantage is a format where teams are divided into flights based on combined handicap. If you win that flight you play against the winners of the other flights in a horserace where strokes are greatly reduced. Most of the horse races I've seen or been a part of of are won by teams from the first two flights, the lower handicap flights.
    • Checked if my shoulders were too flat in a mirror. Apparently not as bad as I thought. I'd like to be more conscious of it before tomorrow's lesson. Going to do a bunch of slow movements through the evening and tomorrow morning then progressively speed up and see if everything still looks reasonable with a full speed swing. . .
    • I've never actually met a golfer who swings differently when under pressure, that is, if he can swing to his handicap at all? Golf starts with a good swing, without that you've got no game.   Yes, but the player is dialing things in at a range. On the course everything is much harder because you only hit any club once per 10 to 15 minutes or something like that.   There's no mental aspect when you have a chance to hit ball after ball successively from the shortest club to the longest one. On the range you're dialed in. That's why many people hit well on the range and not so well on the course.   If you do this with a proper swing, then I'd imagine yes. You'd have a good swing. That good swing in turn will give you more confidence than any sort of motivational speech.   I've never been able to will the ball to go where I want it to, and don't know anyone who can do that without the physical training required to develop a decent swing.
    • This.  Over the years we've heard so much about golf and sports being mental but where are the great tips and instruction on the mental side of the game?  I've read some books on the subject but so far not by anyone who sounded like they actually played golf.  Here's one mental thing that I've done to help my game, imo:   While getting into my address position I look long at my target, glance at the ball to get feet and ball position aligned.  One more good look at the target and when I look back to the ball I begin my swing almost immediately.  This keeps tension from creeping into my muscles by staying too long at address thinking about too many things.  It also seems to help me stay more alert during the swing, rather than getting all tense and just hitting a start/panic button.  To me, this is part of the mental game and is one way the mind can make a huge difference in shot result.
