Golf is golf, rules are easy enough to follow with or without a witness.  I don't play any different alone or with others. if you need a babysitter it's time to rethink everything golf isn't your problem.

Cool. So you willingly violated the rules, and post here to brag about it?

Solo rounds aren't all that great anyway, you spend a lot of time just waiting. You don't get to talk to other people.

I can play 18 with 3 other people and not "talk to other people".
When playing a solo round I usually hum some jazz to myself and find a state of serenity, tranquility and a bit of zen meditation.

That is until I duff a ball OB, and then I am a solo lunatic screaming at myself in the fairway!!!!!

Serenity now!!!!!! Serenity now!!!!

They're not. But a lot of times when i play after work there are few players out on the course. I tend to rush a bit when i play alone.

How else could he get to be a +1 handicap, if he didn't post all those low scores that nobody saw him shoot?

Sounds like you're calling @Groucho Valentinea liar...

@Groucho Valentine has has freely admitted that he's a person who had decided that the rules of the handicap system don't apply to him, yet he chooses to maintain a handicap.  In fact, he's proud of purposely breaking the rules.  I don't need to say anything more.

Very intriguing indeed. Ive only become a + handicap in the last three months, you know. I wonder how long its going to be until my secret is discovered!

He might break the rules in this case but it doesn't make him a liar. Maybe since he is a liar he made up the story that he shot and posted that round... Hmm the conundrum...

I purposely play alone just so i can stick it to the USGA.

before the rule change I posted every score unless I did something that invalidated the round for posting (extra balls or not playing consistent tees).   I typically play most rounds by myself so my handicap hasn't moved much.  

Now with playing by myself I invent different games to make it fun.  There are four sets of tees where I play (back, normal men's tees, forward men's tees and senior tees).    I just got some different colored poker chips and use those to represent the different tee boxes. I pull one out in each hole before I tee off and use the chip corresponding to the tee box to tell me what tee to use.   Makes for some really interesting shots, both long and short.

    • 4i sounds about right for me. I don’t run into too many long holes like this, but by coincidence I played one yesterday. Hit a decent drive and had 4i in, made nGIR and ended up with bogey. I drive the ball poorly, though, so there are plenty of opportunities for me to hit 4i into greens even on short par 3s.
    • hi I’m having trouble hitting my irons either thinning it or chunking it  here’s a look at my swing and I would appreciate if you guys could tell me what I’m doing wrong im an 11 handicap and have been playing for 9 years   
    • Doesn't Pebble Beach have a bunker adjacent to the beach which is marked as a red PA (old water hazard)?
    • I swear that I was fit with 105 then when I picked up the clubs they had 120 in them. basically the srixon fitter couldn't really remember so they all just tiptoed around it and suggested that the 120s are right for me. Pretty shity really. And yeah also didn't put in extra length in the shafts based on my toe down swing at the time.  instead of just fitting me properly and letting me learn to swing the club properly.   Yes I like and agree with that advice good to hear thank you for your reply.
    • I can think of scenarios where a ball could be in both a penalty area and putting green (like an island green or something), but I'm struggling to think of a penalty area/bunker or bunker/putting green situation. Does anyone know of any examples of these in a well known course that I could google?
