It's a beautiful morning and all of us are Seniors. I mean the youngest is 62 years old.
We get ready to Tee Off and everyone wants to play the White Tee Markers. The course is a well kept, nice and clean. It has a Par/Slope Rating on each of the tee markers.
There are no Senior Tees designated as such. My golfing buddies say, "Red is for the Women." Men's tees are White and Champion tees are Blue.
So we play the Whites, maintain our masculinity, and suffer from extra strokes because we can't drive the ball off the tee as far as the younger players. In some ways, it is frustrating, but it is really sweet when I beat a younger player because I consistently stay in the fairway, while he hits his 300+ yard out of bounds.
But what is correct to play according to the current rules?
What age is considered a Senior?
If the course has no "Senior Designated Tees", then do the Men play the White only?
Can Seniors legally play the Red Tees, or Ladies tees?
Who came up with this rule or procedure? (We need to find him and integrate him/her. 😄 )
I honestly like playing from the Whites. It is part masculinity and part pride, but unless I have designated "Senior Tees", then I prefer to play the whites.
Okay, your comments and smart remarks will be noted.

Back when I started playing golf a 2 wedge set up was pretty common, even though most people seemed to carry 3 wedges. Today I think 4 wedges seems to be the norm. PW, GW, SW and LW. That's what I carry. Some sets are so low lofted (I'm looking at you Roque X) that folks will add a 5th wedge.
So, I'll ask: How many wedges do you carry?
