You're ripping guys who get excited about breaking 80 on a course rated 68.4 or something similar, but the reality is that very few of us play courses such as what you describe (72.8 rating, 131 slope) on a regular basis. Maybe you or I wouldn't be happy about a 79 on a 68.4 rated layout, but why do you feel the need to rain on someone's parade? Hey, none of us should be judging the merits of someone else's rounds. If they're thrilled, I'm happy for them. You should be, too.

I hold a course record on a course that's par 70 with a 70.0 rating and a 127 slope. Should I be embarrassed because the rating and slope don't meet your standards? 

 

Bingo!  I shot my PB on a course with a 69.4/120 rating, but as far as I'm concerned, one over par 73 is still just one over par.

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!

Stella Artois???????

Girly man

 

JUST KIDDING.  I don't know why when I read Stella Artois Hans and Frans popped in my head though.  

Yeah, but Stella is just for fancy courses and I don't do fancy.

Personally I think it tastes kind of skunky, same with Heineken and Becks.  I like craft beers, especially a nice porter or stout but if going more main stream brews I will take a Yuengling, Bass, Guinness (Stout) and occasionally, *gasp* can't believe I am going to admit to this, if it is really hot out and sunny, I'll drink a Miller Lite because beers with more body to them seem to be just a bit too heavy.  At that point it's more like drinkin a sodie pop.

I apologize then, but really all I was saying was why @Buckeyenut would want to know and probably why others omit it, Also I'm not trying to impose any standard on course difficulty to anyone, play wherever you want I don't care.

I thought this was LOL!

Even the not-so-fancy courses are carrying it on tap now up here in the Boston area. After buying Bud, they started pushing it.

Stella is OK when you've just played 18 in 90F weather. It is refreshing but not my first choice as a normal draught. After playing 18 on Tuesday in 55F weather, we went to a bar that had Newcastle on tap. That was nice.

Yeah but you didn't mention that Florida winter is a cruel and hard 5 weeks with some occasional frosty ground.  Played Chi Chi Rodriguez yesterday morning, fun little track.

Chi Chi's can be fun.  Isn't that a par 69 or something?  Been a long time since I've played there.  Played a scramble there back in the 90's.

Yes it is a par 69. Has some holes that make you think, lots of doglegs. It was a good time.

I said that jokingly because since my son took to bowling, I've become a non-golfer when it comes to winter golf.   Today was sunny and 66 with light winds.........and I bowled!!  LOL

    • Nope, because I have no idea if he did or did not isolate himself from public.  Let's say his wife gets COVID, he's taking care of her, and self isolates through the entire process plus a few weeks after she gets better. I rather not be snarky and nasty to a coworker when I do not know what he exactly did. All I know is, he did not get the vaccine because he was around his wife through the entirety of her bout with COVID.  Also, he was working from home, so no issue with social distancing with coworkers. We were not allowed to go into the office unless it was for specific reasons, and you had to report when you showed up, when you left, and who you ended up being around. You were required to wear masks when you were not at your desk. Again, rather not say nasty snarky comments here. You obviously do not know our work situation.  Yes, he probably should have gotten tested. Yes, if the vaccine further helps him out, then he should have gotten the vaccine when available. 
    • Day 110 (7/25/21) - Putting practice today on the PuttOut mat. Did the PuttOut challenge then worked on making putts straight down the lines on either side of the mat.
    • Shorty... it sounds like you kinda admire that guy...  😁
    • Day 29  (25 Jul 21) - PW and 8i work in the backyard, this time with a water hose green outline (see pics) to give a more specific target area.  Made it "not round" but rather contourish to mimic what is seen on the course. Makes for thinking through to have much more accurate shot making as the goal was to land not not roll "off the green" (outside the hose line...  
    • Are you sure you didn't mean to say: He didn't social distance after his wife got Covid. Due to his disgusting selfishness he refused to get tested because despite an avalanche of information, he couldn't grasp the simple notion that asymptomatic transfer is the most common way the virus is spread. He refused to self-isolate with his wife. He put his co-workers and everyone else at risk of catching it and dying because there was a very high chance that he had it and was asymptomatic. And......to make his stupidity and arrogance even worse, he didn't even take the vaccine!!!! The lack of logic and ignorance astounds me. I'm embarrassed to say that this is someone I know and the fact that he put my family and I at huge risk makes me extremely angry. If not, why not?
