  2. I plan on going out on Tuesday for the first time. I was worried about people coming out that have never walked before and holding everything up. The course i'm going to has very strict rules about masks in the clubhouse, cups are inverted (no touching of the flagstick) etc. So hopefully it will be a smooth experience. I'm sure it could be a S.Show but I've been itching to play so bad i'll just have to deal with whatever happens.
  3. Many of the good courses in my area would be a pain to walk (multiple long cart paths through the woods to the next hole). Plus I think the majority of the casual golfing community enjoys the practicality of a golf cart. Speakers, phone, bag of beer, speed, etc. While there are plenty that are walking because they have to right now, most will go back to carts whenever this goes away.
  4. One thing we did in our league last year is combine skins and low net. So half of the pot goes to gross skins and the other half of the pot goes to low net. This way both spectrum's of the league have a chance at winning some cash.
  5. I doubt there will be that many deals. Golf Galaxy's here in Michigan are still selling three year old drivers for $450-$500 depending on the brand/model. I guess if this lasts well into the summer, maybe we'll see some deals.
  6. I bought a groove sharpener for my wedges. Never tried one before but have heard they can make your wedges spin like new. Worth a shot to see if it saves me $300-$400 on new wedges.
  7. My brother and cousin live in Columbus. They have a tee time for Sunday. Everyone gets their own cart. Cups are raised an inch out of the ground so as to not have to remove the flag. I wish it was like that here in Michigan......All courses are closed. Our governor deemed them non-essential.
  8. I was at the Memorial a couple weeks ago and while JT, Rory and Spieth were on the green, some guys phone rang in front of me. He answered it....and had a "quiet" conversation. I get its 2019....but put your phone on silent!!!!!! The blatant disregard for where he was boggled my mind.
  9. To me it sounds like he said "you got me". When watching it live it definitely sounded like he was getting after his caddie. They must have been between clubs on both shots and he went with his caddie's advice. I didn't really find it out of line. When your getting 10% of winnings, you aren't immune to a little blame.
  10. Yea I just heard Faldo change his mind...that statement was made based on what he said earlier...so I retract that statement.
  11. You guys are nuts. He didn't admit to breaking a rule. He admitted to moving the ball back 2 yards like it was no big deal. If he intentionally broke a rule to gain an advantage, do you really think he would talk about it so nonchalantly? Absolutely not. He was obviously playing under 26-1, keeping the line from the hole to the water...he obviously confused the rule. He didn't lie and say he was trying to play the ball as close as possible to the original spot. He signed the correct card according to the rules officials...it wasn't until after the round was over and he had his interview that they "changed their minds" and got the call right. At the time of card signing he signed the correct card....there is no way he should be DQ'ed with the new rule and no way should he DQ himself. Scenario: It's the NCAA championship basketball game. A player is fouled during a shot attempt with 1 second left and his team is down by one. NO call is made, game over......should they review it after the game is over and call a foul.......then have him come back on the court, make both free throws and change the winner? He made a mistake....it wasn't done maliciously and he has been punished greatly for it....More than I feel, personally, given how it all played out. Please get off your high horses and stop asking for him to "DQ" himself. And I think a lot of the commentators like Nick Faldo are showing very low class when asking for Tiger's head over this.
  12. Well I Paused each shot from the ESPN video. Put them side by side. The ball was MAYBE a couple feet behind his original divot. I didn't see his drop but it is possible it bounced back a foot or too. Watch the video...its not that far away from his orginal divot...and if it was dropped near his divot it is within the rules.
  13. Can Erik tell me what hole he is talking about? You don't explain what hole you are talking about
