  1. "I know it was a shot, I just don't understand why." Don't try to figure it out or you will go crazy. These are the same type of people who come to a party and if everything is going well they stir up trouble to get some attention or for some other strange reason that I haven't been able to figure out for close to 3/4 of a century. They are not happy until they make someone miserable.
  2. It's a shot. Don't bother answering. By the way. The ten finger baseball grip has been used on the PGA Tour. I can remember Rosburg and Estes using it.
  3. I do remember clubs that had only a red colored cement as standard before double sided tape came into existence. Yes. I am that old.
  4. Just go by the holes you played and give yourself the strokes you would receive on each of the holes as if they had all been played.
  5. I think what you could do is regard it as an unplayed hole for handicap purposes. From the U.S.G.A. Manual If 13 or more holes are played, the player must post an 18-hole score. If 7 to 12 holes are played, the player must post a nine-hole score. In either case, scores for unplayed holes must be recorded as par plus any handicap strokes that the player is entitled to receive on the unplayed holes. (See Section 4-2 and 5-1a .)
  6. Boy is the coverage of the Canadian Open ever poor in the press. They are still backchecking and printing about hockey in July for crying out loud. The coverage of the Canadian Open is abysmal.
  7. If he can figure it out and has been using it, then so can you at least until you can get the oars out of the water. He probably couldn't find a ready made system that would do it all.
  8. Can you tell me why a draw runs farther than a fade when it lands on a hard fairway?
  9. So to speak means as opposed to hitting a straight shot or a fade as compared to a draw. Are you going to tell me that a draw has more backspin off an iron, the same, or less? And what scientific principle and observation are you going to apply to prove your point? Every shot has backspin on it or you wouldn't be able to get it into the air. Plenty of PGA Tour pros hit draws and do just fine with them and some do not and do just fine as well. Ben Hogan learned to fade the ball and in his own words 'the ball came down as light as a feather'. I read that in Li
  10. i'm not saying that you shouldn't learn to draw the ball with an iron. If you can hit it straight instead of drawing it you will be better off.
  11. At what stage would you consider it ground under repair. 0, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, 7/8 grown back. Do you see why the rule is in place? You would have to spray the whole course with white paint.
  12. I still don't understand why anyone wants to hit a draw into a green unless you are going around a tree. A draw has no backspin on it so to speak. I mean it looks pretty and all but other than that, it's not something to strive for. Start hitting a few duck hooks and you will find out what I am talking about. Or ask Ben Hogan.
  13. Which irons are you talking about. Other than a 3, 4, or 5 iron why would you want to hit a draw with your irons? You want the ball to come in soft to the green not hard and running. If you can reach the greens in regulation with your driver and an iron why bother trying to draw the ball with an iron?
  14. Here's a suggestion guys and it worked out really well in my marriage. I taught my wife to play tennis. She joined up with a another bunch of females and they had their regular outings just like the golf buddies. Same deal. Every once in awhile she would come out for a round of golf and I would play a set with her at tennis (She was good at tennis. I wasn't in shape) Every relationship is different. God invented work so man and woman would be separated at least 8 hours and he invented golf for the weekends.
