Aha! Nice. Well, I'm glad that I can just tune in, might get to learn hockey.
Yeah, really. I meant to get into hockey, several times, and I enjoy it when I sit to watch a game. I was given some hockey books for my birthday in June 2019, and I meant to read and follow a bit in the 2019-20 season, but my limited sports-watching time was for golf and football, and both were running up until the shutdown. 😕
I think this morning was my first time watching a game with an idea of what it meant for something to be a first line.
One of the fabulous aspects of golf is that you can play alone. When you play alone you can pretty much do whatever you want as long as it doesn't hinder other people on the course or damage the property.
Out by yourself? Take that casual drop, tee one up in the middle of the fairway, hit two balls per shot and use the best one.
Rules govern competitions. If it isn't a competition, the rules don't matter. So don't worry about them.
So, my girlfriend and I were at this small park the other day that is like half a mile away from me and during the walk I came to the conclusion that if they allowed golf there that it would be a perfect practice spot. Fast forward to today and I called the borough office and spoke to the very cool Borough Manager and explained my golf setup with the massive net and turf hitting mat (he ended up being a golfer too, haha) and I got the green light to practice there whenever I wanted. The only thing I need now is a nice board/platform that is mobile and feels good to rotate on. When I just had a piece of composite board, it didn’t feel like I was getting the same “digging into” the ground feels with my feet but that could’ve been a result of the uneven ground. I should be able to think of something.
One purpose of this forum is to share the knowledge each of us has, so that others may learn. A number of us have suggested a small inexpensive book that YOU can buy and read if you care to learn anything about the rules and the logic that ties them together. You have repeatedly ignored those posts, so you're apparently happier to remain ignorant of that logic.
