@mvmac and I talked and we're going to require this of you as a condition of your membership. Too much talk, too little sense, not a single video, Member Swing thread, photo(s), or anything.
Post a video demonstrating this.
It's a shame there aren't more proper par-3 courses around. Sure you can walk up any hole on a regulation course and score it however you want, but there's something to be said about teeing off from an actual tee box.
As far as practicing the short game goes, my number of putts in the average round would suggest otherwise. Maybe I could just count a 2-putt as soon as I hit the green and call it a hole. That would be a variation for you.
Wow, dude. Yeah, saying that your putter doesn't conform to the lie angle requirements is really "stunting the growth of the game." And because they're enforcing a rule that's been around as long as I've been alive (let alone him), IIRC, that makes them "not a good organization."
Right, see, it's the putter - his equipment. That's it. Because he wanted to use it almost vertically, it violated the idea that golf is a side-on game and the rules that have been around for a long, long time.
What a douche.
