@billchao The group in question was the 7:40 group, which came to the turn AFTER my 9:30 group was already on the tee box. This happened at 9:42 because my group had to wait for the faiway to open up when the 7:30 group turned infront of us. The starter actually drove up to interrupt our group and asked us to step aside for the guys to turn...
@bkuehn1952 Exactly my question! I would never get to tee off if I have to give way to those who are turning. Then what’s the point in making a tee time?
When we finally got to tee off, a twosome walker was already behind us and the whole time we were stuck waiting for the group that cut infront of us, and the twosome was on our tail. I later found out the group behind came from C and should have turned to A, but they decided to turn onto B and the starter allowed them to...*roll eyes*
@Double Mocha Man yes, the club double booked the 9:30 on B. Idiots!
I have had my club head speed checked by machine twice. (It was at golftech, and the PGA store so I presume the machines are accurate) I got results from like 98-105 with driver. From those results, I thought those numbers would produce the distances I get. But my observed distances are just about at the 110 mark, and if you follow that 110 column down, those are all accurate. Is it possible that I get like an unusual smash factor or something? Does that happen? I'm not fitted or anything.
Possible reasons for the discrepancy include:
1. I am routinely bad at measuring distances. Possible, but pretty unlikely. I am not into lying to myself. I want to improve.
2. The measurements were off at the store. - I do not know why they would want to make me think I swing slow with the club they want to sell me.
3. My swing has improved since then. - Also possible. I practice what I am taught here a lot.
4. Something else.
I suppose it does not matter at the end of the day. My distance estimates are pretty accurate with the clubs and swing I have right now. I'm just curious. And it is an issue of pride in some form. I want to know where I stand, I suppose.
