My son and I are playing in a parent/child scramble this coming Saturday. We talked about going to the driving range before the round to warm up. Someone told us that we would get disqualified for any practice before a round?????? I've been to the Web.com & Nike tour several times and the players are all over the driving range. I think they were out there before their round also. Can someone clear this up for me? Also, can you give me the number of the written rule for reference? Thanks, Jack

Hard to copy from the iPad but the rule is here: https://usga.org/Rule-Books/Rules-of-Golf/Rule-07/ Driving range is explicitly allowed by the exception to 7-1(b)

Yeah, you're just not allowed to practice ON THE COURSE the day of a tournament. Driving range is all good. :)

That only applies to stroke play.  For a match practice is allowed on the competition course.

    • @Wanzo if it gets chilly you can buy one of those $298 hoodies team USA has been wearing. 
    • #1. The separation is likely to be higher (even though more undulation may favor me too), and I'm also likely to putt better myself. So whether I'm after a good score or to beat someone, #1 is better for me.
    • Cool video and thanks for the tip.  We were thinking about walking straight down to grandstands near 3/6/7.  Yeah I wouldn’t even bother trying for 1 or 18.  Looks chilly but supposed to warm up some Friday.  
    • #40 Would You Rather... 1) Putt on greens that are fast (say 11-12 on the stimpmeter) but relatively flat and somewhat predictable, the major punishment being it will roll forever if you miss the hole.   OR 2) Putt on greens that are average (say 8-9 on the stimpmeter) but have great undulations, shelves that make you have to really think about how the ball will need to roll.    I like greens that have slopes and undulations as long as the green speeds match well with the slopes and the holes are located in appropriate locations.  Mostly flat greens are fairly uninteresting, even if they are very slick.  So I will vote for #2.  We just finished playing a very nice course in northern Indiana that had one serious flaw; many of the greens had too much slope for the speed of the greens.  No one wants fuzzy greens but at the same time, hitting a putt two inches and having it roll off the front of the green isn't fun either.  
    • Working on the same things. I adjusted the the grip slightly stronger which is getting more height back for me. I still miss right though(actually more often which is weird to me) especially if I hold off the overtaking too much. Without much direction right now I have been trying a few things. After this video I started working a little bit on getting that hands and club a bit deeper again in the BS. It is straightening the shots out for me, I am just worried about not overdoing it and letting the hooks creep back in. I'll likely need to introduce more hold off as I get a bit deeper. I'm not sure I will keep with that feel or not.
