Tell the group in the halfway house you are playing through and there is no need for them to rush. I would deliver the news while the others tee off. It can be awkward when the other group saunters up while you are teeing off unless you said something.
I learned a long time ago when you have an opportunity to go, take it or you almost always regret it.
When is a golf ball considered to have been illegally "heated?" For example...
1. If a golfer drives to the course with a golf ball over a heater vent in his car, is that illegal? Or
2. If a golfer uses a "Hot Biscuits" or other type ball warmer plugged in before the round but unplugged before teeing off on the first tee, is that illegal? Or
3. If a golfer keeps his golf balls in a thermos/insulated cup or bag with hot water before the round, but empties the hot water before teeing off on the first tee, is that illegal?
In short, can a ball be heated before a round begins? And if it can, can the ball be kept in an insulated container that is not "actively heating" the ball but simply retaining the heat already within the ball during the round?
I know it is illegal to carry a ball in a pocket with a hand warmer in the same pocket, by the way.
Be kind with your answers, please
Exactly. This way manufacturers could keep on doing what they are doing. Courses could still be set up the way they have been doing it. “ Bomb and Gouge” would be up to the player.
Yes, just out of the box thinking. Man, it seemed simple to me, I thought I was explaining it wrong.
So at the end of a round, if Corey Pavin kept everything under the distance threshold he would shoot even par 72. If DJ hit numerous drives over the distance threshold he might shoot 65 but that would still be even par because of the distance adjustment. DJ and Pavin would be tied. Almost like a handicap.
I used to walk and carry. Then I walked and pulled a cart. Eventually, once my knees were shot, I succumbed to riding in a cart. I held out as long as I could.
You make it sound like you have far too much info about the body! This indulges you to worry about absolutely everything! And I've never played a 6 hour round riding in a cart. But, I don't know where you are playing.
