Yeah, not sure where that comes from. I prefer natural sounds and the quiet vacuum of my brain.

For some people it’s quite the opposite. They need the noise to quiet their brain.

I just got finished writing up the rules sheet for our first tournament of the season and the first thing we did was put in this local rule prohibiting music on the course. It just doesn't have a plac

Ugh. If only people who want to hear the music can hear the music, do what makes you happy. If someone who doesn't want to hear the music can, it's discourteous.

I am very much a music lover. That being said, time & a place. In my humble opinion. Not on the course. I feel it distracts from the natural rhythm of the day. I like to hear the frogs & the b

I'm 67. I walk and push. I don't listen to music on the course. I get my hour of music daily at home. I don't need the added hassle. Most folks who I am paired with, who do play music, ask if I mind. I always answer no, I don't mind. It's always low. 

Crazy thing...9 out of 10 times...they stream the late 60's/early 70's hits of my youth. Often I get offered a hit. lol Growing up in my house, my 33 year old son introduced me to everything from Jack Johnson to Lamb of God. We both play music. There isn't much out there that will offend me.

I also don't want to be that old curmudgeon who screams at clouds. I play enough, I see many of these folks multiple times a season. 

Its great to see the number of younger golfers on the course these days. Maybe some will stay long after the zombie apocalypse eases.

Stay safe and healthy

I personally do not like music on the course. Nobody I play with does it. If I end up playing along with people who do play music I tend to just deal with it unless they ask and I’ll tell them I’d rather not. I don’t say anything about it though unless they ask. I haven’t noticed any impact to my game the times I have played with music but I have always just been the type to prefer quiet.

    • Most companies will release new wedges every year in the fall. I suggest going to a shop and hitting them to get a feel of what you like. Check their websites too.
    • I am considering replacing my wedges but I haven't got a clue what will be released this year. My wedges are the only part of my bag that I haven't been custom fit for so I wanted to go and see if there is a tangible difference with my current wedges. But if Titleist/TaylorMade/Callaway/Cleveland/Mizuno/Ping etc. will be replacing their current wedges with new clubs then I will probably wait. Anyone know ?

    • Played Disney Palms yesterday with @kpaulhusand my Dad.  Had a rough start, bogey, double, bogey, double, but played better after, had a chance for even par on back 9 before a double on 18 to shoot 44-38-82. Great day with Kyle, as always.    
    • If I’m on the course by myself and I’m not holding anyone up, I practice all of the time (I’m also a member of a Country Club, so no one is going to say anything to me for hitting extra balls).  I find areas of the course that I might find myself in during a round and hit a few balls (especially around the green), so I have an idea of how I want to play that shot when the score counts and that is where I find my ball.
