I believe that's just the black course.

And I think he's nicknaming it 'backup Bethpage' because it takes forever to get a round in.

That's hard to believe that there are obnoxious golfers in the city.

It's in the middle of suburbia, for what it's worth.

The guy is making cultural generalizations when he lives in Florida.

There was some serious yelling. Not me but two guys were coming to blows. Guy in fivesome behind us complaining we were slow but as you can see in photo, two groups are waiting on the par 3 ahead of us. We couldn't go anywhere. Idiot. I'm really good at dialing these guys out. Hit my drive and the fairway while they were having a frank and serious discussion. Felt bad for the guys in my group. It ruined their round. Anyways I complain about slow play but I accept it's a fact of life. I'm not gonna transfer that negative energy to the group ahead of me. I'll do that here. :-). By posting a photo. :-)

I think some people just take the issue of slow play too seriously.. I can't imagine what would drive some idiot to come to or almost come to blows about it! I'll chalk it up to stupidity! I'm glad it didn't ruin your round though!

Played 36 at Bethpage with the team yesterday. Our 7am round wasn't awful but we went back out around 1:30 on the blue and I was coming up 18 in the dark.....

People get grumpy at Bethpage, though usually more so on the red course because those are the guys that didn't get up early enough to get a tee time on black and got stuck playing red (which is a pretty tough course too).

But I was born and raised in New York. Bethpage is on the Island, but played by the city dwellers.

If someone is quick to blow up golf is probably not the best sport for them

    • Ok, so range work tonight wasn't horrible. I did notice a slight backslide in keeping my left hip on the wall. But I think it was a pretty slight move, even so I'll work double hard to make sure I get back to not moving off. I didn't notice until I got home that the camera was a little too close when recording FO Driver swings. Was a really good drive, push draw that carried to the top of the hill. Other than small move off the wall and long swing I'm pretty happy with the swing. This drive was almost exactly the same as the face on drive. Push draw to the top of the hill in the distance. I may be crazy, but it looks almost like I didn't go shallow to steep on this swing. I don't have good software to check that though.   Not bad other than the slight move off the wall and swing lengthened a little. No real insight on this swing either. Swing could have been shorter. But now, something completely different!! Have I mentioned how much I love the pitching technique I learned in Erie?? 
    • I also had this same thought about a month back. I asked my instructor and he said he wouldn't worry about it (probably because he was thinking "get your effing swing right first, you can't fix BAD" lol) and said that it's actually probably in the correct configuration to aid in a slice miss in that the weights are there to prevent the cogwheel effect (inducing the side spin). So with the weight at the toe, if I hit the heel it should move back farther than the toe on impact and have less slice spin. I think I have that right, maybe I'm loony. 
    • Ha ha. I thought for a while that I wasn't as bad at golf as I was at counting to 5 (or 7 or 8). Sadly, Game Golf confirmed the high scores are real. I feel bad for the owners of the golf courses when they get hit by a drought. I guess the same can be said for anyone who's business depends on appropriate weather (farmers, ski resorts). I wonder how difficult it is to bring a course back to shape when it gets that dried out.
    • If you can get fitted for long clubs - even if you pick them up used - this would help your game the most. BTW, the TommyA 845 irons are #1 on my list of cool golf clubs I've never owned. (People have let me hit them, and they had good feel!) 845s will get you through the first couple of return seasons, or maybe longer! On FWs, at least hit a 4W and see how it flies. Some golf tests indicate that the average golfer can hit the 4W more reliably and sometimes longer than a 3W. It just depends on how you come into the ball. I have carrried 4W + 7W for four seasons now.
    • Literally... From June 1 to July 10 Trumansburg NY was the driest place in Upstate NY.  I have no reason to believe that has changed.  We got rained on for about an hour yesterday and overnight, but not enough to do anything useful.  I've never seen the golf course this brown or the ponds so low... if I wanted to get my feet muddy, I could have grabbed about 10 balls... they were probably all mine anyway. Figuratively.  I just played my third consecutive terrible round.  Every time I play seems to be the worst round of my life.  They only reason I kept score was because I got a Game Golf belt unit and wanted to try it out.  I like it: I can't count very high without help.  Anywho... I decided t take a week or two off from golf, not touch the clubs, and recharge a little bit.  I may, in that time, do a grossly inappropriate rain dance because hey... you never know.
