You are not a real golfer unless you have a hazmat suit so you can play during epidemics.

I may need to get one of those soon. Maybe I'll wait till the new like version comes out. On a more serious matter, don't you lose tons of free power of you keep your head down, ASSUMING you are able to hit the ball. I guess side to side is important but you still want to shift weight back a touch with the driver and through wit. The rest of the clubs.

You are making a real ass of yourself lately. You are a non-golfer if you can not treat fellow golfers with the respect due to them, regardless of their score or the CR of the course on which they sh

Not me! A golf ball with a demonstrated affinity for the water has a horrible character flaw that cannot be changed.  It should never be trusted again!

I made a 12 on a par-3 once......with NO PENALTY STROKES!

I am calling you out as a non-golfer if you believe that under any circumstance...................that losing a golf ball anywhere on the course including "environmentally sensitive" areas.........warrants a free drop according to the rules of golf. (local or otherwise)

Hahaha

I read the above comment in another thread, and I darn near choked on my beverage!! :-D

Never pushed an evening round or a range session until you could see the occasional spark as you took a divot.

:beer: My friends and I all installed lights on our golf carts so we could keep playing after dark. (No joke). :-D

You might want to check ROG Appendix 1, and then 25-1b and 25-1c. :doh:

What I'm wondering (and I was wondering this when I lost 8 balls into ESA areas at Coyote Creek) is how they get all the balls out of these areas to protect whatever it is that they are protecting? I figured at least 100 other people lost balls into the same areas that I lost per week, so that might be 800 balls per week? or 41,600 golf balls per year?

LOL. That's a good question. What if all of the golf balls damage whatever they are trying to protect?

Surely they can't just leave them there piling up in an "environmentally protected area". ;-)

I'm glad nothing around here is protected.

You are full of crap dude..... "bad areas you don't want to go/environmental areas" ........are clearly marked with RED or WHITE stakes and lines!  LOL............what planet do you live on? These are clearly defined hazards.........LOL

You sir are a non-golfer because you are removed from REALITY...............the reality of what it means to hit your golf ball "OFF THE COURSE"................into a 'so called'.............bullsh!t environmental protected area!!   If you were a real golfer, you'd know these areas are clearly marked hazards on each and every course.

IMO...................getting to a single digit HC should be easy.

My 2 keys to success:

1. stop duffing/wasting shots from tee to green

2.  Stop blading/duffing shots around the green.

This Is a very low standard.............

Being modestly proficient from tee to green and NOT duffing/blading/wasting shots around the green is all that is necessary.

Please see ESA as GUR .

I could call you out as a non-golfer for your ungentlemanly behavior, but unfortunately that lack of civility seems rampant in some golf circles.

Yeah, and it seems to take only on or two holes where this happens to shoot high. :-(

Adding this here as it is relevant.

P.S.  @BuckeyeNut, you need to read this thread and then realize you owe a couple of people (specifically @Meisce and @CR McDivot) a pretty big apology.

I've got a handful or two of these, some just make me smile but some can be annoying, just not to the point of saying something (well, at least most of the time)

I'm calling you out as a non-golfer if

-you don't know the difference between a chip and a pitch, as in saying "nice chip" after a 25 yard lob over a sand trap that rolls out 2 feet

-you place your clubs in your carry bag with the long clubs at the bottom of your bag and the shorter clubs at the top of your bag (nearer the strap)

-you carry your bag backwards, with the clubs sticking out straight behind you

-you have a suction cup on the end of your putter (medical reasons excluded)

-you don't have a ball mark, and continue to try to use a tee for a ball mark instead, even when someone offers a coin ("that tee doesn't bother you, does it?" well, yeah, it does, it's only a foot away from the hole and you won't take a gimme)

-you carry one of those 50 uses-in-one golf cleaning tools clipped to your bag, and never use it either

-you slap a 6 inch putt around the hole 4 or 5 times, then pick it up and say you gave yourself the first one

-you call your clubs "bats"

-when you are asked to move your mark on the green, you move it the whole length of the putter

-you don't have any head covers, anywhere

-you say "where did my shot go?" more than once every other hole or so

-you would rather ride in a cart than use a caddie at a special, once in a lifetime type course (like Pebble Beach)

Funny thing is, it wasn't that much different from private clubs or public courses. Actually, I think the expensive ($100+) public courses are probably the worst. The cheaper munis seem to attract more golf rats that don't do this kind of stuff. Guess that makes me a golf rat!

Whew I feel better now.

    • Summer in the Bay Area is really foggy, especially teeing off before 6am. Yesterday was particularly thick, almost no visibility beyond 100 yards, example below: I got to the 11th tee a bit down on confidence after scrambling for bogey on the 10th; a pulled drive that got knocked down way short by tree limbs, then a chunky 5-iron approach #1, followed by a slightly less chunky SW approach #2, and then up and down. The 11th is a tricky 200 yard par-3, made worse by the fog. I aimed where I thought the green was, and flushed a 5-iron. I knew it was a pure strike, but the ball disappeared into the fog so I didn't get much sense of the curvature of the ball flight. It ended up being a great shot, about 2.5 paces past the hole, I'd guess 7-9 feet (historical shots shown below, to illustrate how much I suck at this particular hole). I missed the birdie putt, but this is a hole where par gains strokes.
    • Howdy y'all. I've taken a long break from golf, and things have really changed. I actually found this site while looking around to see if Snake Eyes clubs from old Golfsmith were still a thing, and sure enough, some of you yahoos are still playing them. Well, me too, but that's probably going to change pretty soon, but you guys seem pretty cool. If you've ever wanted to wake someone up from a coma to tell them what has happened in the world of golf for the last 10 years, I'm your guy. I'm actually really sad about what has happened to golfsmith, but it's pretty cool to see these new driver that you can just change the loft and the shaft with a little wrench.  I'm looking forward to getting to know some folks here, getting some advice on clubs, advice on kids golfing, and insight on kids clubs.    WITB: Nike Sasquatch driver, lucky 13 Titleist 970F strong 4 Snake Eyes irons, not sure which model by name, but they are oversized cavity back through the 6, and then they transition to the rescue style hybrid club Snake Eyes 51° gap wedge (I love this club) Rusty 588 sand wedge Shiny wilson 8802 putter  
    • I got my rejection for the masters and the ANWA late last week. Maybe next year. 
    • It's out there. I've seen it.
    • Another example is giving unsolicited advice. Could be as simple as, "it plays long." Supposed to be a two stroke penalty.
