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 can fix your hazmat suit with duct tape.

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.

Playing a tourney.............Yea sure.....................I hit a foul ball into the marsh............................YAY!!.....I get a free drop!!.............................NOT

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.

    • The OSU versus Clemson matchup,  OSU tries to run the ball more often than Clemson (63% to 53%). OSU's passing game is more efficient and explosive than Clemson's. OSU has a passer rating of 188 to Clemson's 163. OSU has a passing average of 9.3 to 8.7. Clemson has the best rushing average in the nation at 6.46 to Ohio State's 5.67.  These teams are very similar in yards per play on offense and defense,  CLEMSON Offense Defense Passing 8.70 5.30 Rushing 6.46 2.97       Ohio State Offense Defense Passing 9.30 5.30 Rushing 5.67 2.82 What if you average the defense versus offense of the yards per play. You have something like, Clemson gaining 419 yards to OSU gaining 412 yards. At these yardages, it will be a very tight game. Probably something in the low 30's. Field position could be a big deal in this game. 10 yards of field position advantage could add an additional 120 yards. I was curious if Clemson gets pressure with their DL versus their LB or DB's. 50% of their sacks come from their DL and 37% comes from their LB. Versus 70% of the sacks come from OSU's DL versus 22% from their LB. This could be a big deal since Clemson likes to throw the ball more often than OSU.  Here is an issue for Clemson, they are ranked 103rd in Special Teams. Their field goal kicker is 66% on the season. OSU is ranked in the top 20 in special teams.  I think that OSU will be able to stall Clemson's offense more then they can our offense. The reason being, I think Clemson will have to get to the QB by blitzing their LB's. Day is really good at exploiting defenses that need to get pressure with more than 4 players. OSU's defensive concept is to force teams to go on long drives with a DL that can get to the QB and cause TFL. I am not sure how often Clemson gets out of a 5 man protection for the QB, but Chase Young has proven you can not block him 1v1. He had zero sacks that last two games because the teams have put three guys on him. Will Clemson take away a WR to bring in an extra TE or OL to help out?  I will take OSU in a close game 34 to 31. 
    • For another 15+ hours: (ignore the price in that - it'll say $499. Click through and you'll see it's $349.)
    • I realize you're not saying it was definitely the Garmin, but I will point out that shafts often fail at one of two points: above the hosel and just below the grip. This device seems to go just below the grip, so it may or may not have been the device itself. I'd lean toward it being caused by that, still, but it's not a 100% thing (nor am I saying you said it was).
    • First of all the Garmin Truswing is an amazing tool that gives very accurate swing metrics.  So this is not a dig on the device.   That much said this is a consumer warning.  I have sr flex shafts that are graphite.  I put the truswing on my 7 iron and left it in place thinking I would spend the winter focusing on perfecting my swing with that club and move on in the spring to others given that I have single length hybrids to wedges.  My fourth time out I take a swing and the shaft snaps right below the garmin.  So friends my advice is if you are going to use one of these make sure you don't tighten it too much or it might result in some surprises.    
    • The problem is not hitting different types of shots or adjusting.  The problem is conditions can vary from one foot to the next.  In the situation I was, it would well have been possible that the condition of the sand where the ball was and your feet were would be completely different.  It makes judging what you are going to do nigh on impossible. I am OK with people hitting different shots from the same situation.  That is what makes golf great. I am also OK with challenges. What I have a problem with is conditions being bad due to insufficient maintenance.  I would rather have a course with other alternatives, even if it is a hazard, than an area that is supposed to be playable, but isn't.  To give you an example, my home course is built on a paddy field.  We still get land crabs digging holes on the course.  The understandable decision, a local one, has been made to offer relief from the crab holes on the course
