  1. Very common with the Pure Grips because the holes aren't as deep and the rubber is more elastic than most. A dab of silicone is the most common solution.

  3. That one's straight from his autobiography: http://www.cbssports.com/boxing/news/muhammad-ali-wrote-his-own-eulogy-and-its-obviously-just-perfect/ I was only around enough to see him as Parkinson's-ridden, but he lived a pretty damn incredible life. Rest in peace.

  5. I was removing some Game Golf tags put on with silicone glue and came up with this solution... Use the high E string (the skinny one) from a guitar. My guitar was way over due for a string change so I just removed the high E string. With that and some leather garden gloves I was able to "garrote" around the edges of the tag and break the bond of the silicone glue. This worked well and was fast and easy.

  6. Does anyone have a definition of "correct tee"? Given the broad spectrum of abilities and personalities that make up the golf world, I don't think we have an accepted definition of the "correct tee." Ultimately, isn't the only thing we expect of the people playing ahead of us or with us is to keep pace and maintain a reasonable demeanor. If someone wants to play the tips and shoot 127, I am fine with that as long as they keep up with me, keep up with the group ahead and don't expect me to spend most of my time between shots looking for their ball.

  8. @bkuehn1952 you are right, almost always the player will be looking for relief but he must always declare that to be the case, no matter how obvious it may be. A case when he may want the original to count is if he is in doubt as to whether relief is mandatory (newly sodded area, for example) or where play is prohibited (ball lying on a wrong green or in an ESA, for example)

  9. I figure the course is too easy when I start shooting 70 for 18 from my tees. Given the number of years I've been playing and my age if you were to make that bet, you have a better chance of winning Powerball.

  10. That gappens with PURE grips because the hole at the butt cap is slightly larger than other grips. A number of us have taken to applying a dab of silicone to attach the tags with, but that will still come off and need to be reapplied periodically. I have lost a number of tags in the past, even with silicone applied. GameGolf's official method is to use a dab of super glue I believe. Not my favorite since solvent welding dissolves a little bit of the tag and the grip, but I have done it on my wedges and they are solid.

  11. I think you should post a video. Taking video is a great tool and there are some folks here that give good advice. For me, the 5 simple keys have made it easy for me to find something to work on when I practice. At the start of a warmup or a practice session I'll often go through the first three keys. Key 1 - I'll take a few swings focusing on steady head Key 2 - I'll then take a few focusing on weight forward Key 3 - and then a few focusing on inline impact. That sends me down a path for a good session. So, by posting a video someone might identify one of t

  14. Doubt it. Non-American players don't view the issues the same as we do. Rory pointed that out. While it may have been political (I'm not a fan of Finchem either), it does follow the target of the PGA trying to grow golf. The NFL wants to have a game in Mexico City. Mexico City is close and they already host professional golf tournaments. It fits. If it was El Salvador or in Nicaragua, I would see your point. Olympics is different. It is a one-off event that really doesn't count towards the prestige and money of pro golf yet. No one is going to pull out of a WGC event if they qualify.

  15. In all honesty, I think that the improvements in technology have a much higher impact on us amateurs than it does on the pros. They already were getting the most out of their equipment whereas we need these improvements in forgiveness to get increased distance over a larger area on the club face. That's not to say that the pros don't also benefit from the added forgiveness, but they aren't getting much, if any, increased distance from pured strikes. Those have been maxed out for quite awhile now.

  17. There's nothing questionable about the location, unless you have an inherent problem with holding golf tournaments anywhere outside of the U.S. or Western Europe. Mexico City is a cosmopolitan city, and the pros will be given the VIP treatment, just as they do in Dubai, Cape Town, Shanghai, or Istanbul. It's not like they're going to be dropped off in the middle of the worst slum with a 9-iron, and told to fend for themselves. Finchem definitely wants to expand into Latin America. He's seen the European Tour evolve into the World Tour Minus the Americas during his term as commissioner,

  19. Playing two balls would obviously be the smart thing to do but it is permissible to mark an area GUR after the tournament has started even if earlier players have played the hole: 33-2a/2 Declaring Area as Ground Under Repair During Competition Round Q.A's ball is in a poor lie in a washed-out area which warrants being marked as ground under repair but is not so marked. He deems the ball unplayable and proceeds under Rule 28, incurring a one-stroke penalty. Subsequently, in the same competition round, B's ball is in the same area. B requests the Committee to de

  20. My question would be what does the next guy do who doesn't have the guy who failed to mark the course properly around to ask? You can't make such decisions in the middle of a tournament, because they can affect the field unevenly. Your guy gives Joe relief, but Sam was in the same position earlier, and Johnny and Doug run into the same issue later, and all 3 of them try to play the ball from a horrible lie rather than take what they think is going to be a penalty stroke for an unplayable lie. They just got screwed for one or more strokes that Joe didn't have to deal with.

  23. It matters. Please read the last paragraph of my original post (the one that explains why I'm tracking a bogus HI). I'm using an online Handicap tracker. My HI is not legitimate on a couple levels. I don't belong to a club and I play the vast majority of my rounds by myself. That's why I don't show a HI in my profile. It's only important that I play by the rules because I want an honest assessment of my progress. I may never play in a tournament, but if I do, I'd like to be bit more familiar with how these things are done. Just because I suck at golf doesn't mean I can try to

    • That, and to boost sales of, say, ProV1? You gotta make sure you have enough of the same ball type in your bag before starting a round, you know... 🙂
    • The latter may be used by any committee for any level of competition. There was a time when the newly introduced local rule was used by committees who wanted to elevate the status of their comp. I think that idea bit the dust a while back..
