Why not just look in the Rules
8-2. Indicating Line of Play
a. Other Than on Putting Green
Except on the putting green, a player may have the line of play indicated to him by anyone, but no one may be positioned by the player for that purpose on or close to the line or an extension of the line beyond thehole while the stroke is being made. Any mark placed by the player or with his knowledge, for the purpose of indicating the line of play, must be removed before the stroke is made.
Exception: Flagstick attended or held up - see Rule 17-1.
b. On the Putting Green
When the player's ball is on the putting green, the line of putt may be indicated before, but not during, thestroke by the player, his partner or either of their caddies; in doing so the putting green must not be touched. A mark must not be placed anywhere for the purpose of indicating a line of putt.
OK - I read D 27/6 on other thread. I guess once 5 minutes are past, the ball is deemed lost. I also don't understand the justification. I guess if everyone is walking or everyone is riding, it is fair to expect everyone to keep track of their balls. When there is a difference in the time it takes to get to balls, it is a bit of an unreasonable expectation in my opinion.
Team U.S.A. will win 15 to 13
Dustin Johnson will win 4 points by going 3-0-2
Patrick Reed will clinch the Ryder Cup for the U.S.A. by winning his match on the 16th hole.

I am seeing improvement in my driver, and I am very very happy with this. I have been told to work on my hips turn in the down swing, so at impact they should be facing the target (or almost). This is what I am trying to accomplish now.
By the way, I am trying to find some exercises that could be practised during the winter...
Thanks! I hadn't played this format before -- I enjoyed ESPN's old "best ball" format but never got into "pick who will finish the best of these five" stuff that I tried after that. I can't wait for next season -- when does fantasy golf begin again?
