  1. Can't do that. The hazard runs into an O.B. fence so there is no where to drop on that side.
  2. Interesting, I never thought of it this way. I guess I have been playing this hole wrong for a while, although I've been technically right by re-teeing. Dropping on this hole will likely result in placing the ball which makes the drop that much better. Thanks for the answers everyone.
  3. Personally I feel the stream in front should be a water hazard (yellow stake), but in fact the entire stream is marked red. Makes no sense to me but it is what it is. Although I suppose if you shanked one short in the water you would just take a normal drop behind the hazard as if it were a straight water hazard so it makes no difference. The picture is poorly done, my MS Paint skills aren't what they used to be! The stream in front spans all of 20 yards, probably less than that.
  4. Rought idea of what the hole looks like. Point A is commonly where I enter the hazard, and the point I'm referencing in my OP. Point B is a common miss I've seen as well, short of the green and still in the hazard. Assuming you enter the hazard on that line (entering straight on is a lot easier to determine where to drop), what are your options?
  5. I'm fairly certain I understand the rule well enough to answer this myself, but just to get an outside opinion on it let me paint a picture of the dilemma. My home course has a 220 yard Par 3, stream that runs about 50 yards short of the green and then up the left side. The left side is heavily sloped towards the stream, any miss left will end up in the stream. Question is, if a ball lands in the hazard what are your options? The only two options I see here are playing out of the hazard, which is nearly impossible on this hole, or reteeing and playing your third from the tee box. The hazard extends 10 yards to the left of the stream followed by a boundry fence. I was playing with a member of the course earlier that claims he could drop within 2 club lenghts of where his ball went into the hazard, which typically you can do with a lateral water hazard, except that no matter where he drops it's closer to the hole. He claims if he took a step back between where his ball is in the hazard and the pin (towards the tee box) it was a legal drop. Maybe I'm over thinking this and have been costing myself strokes for a while but I feel any drop is closer to the hole. Thanks in advance
  6. I finally got my new Winn grip in the mail today and installed it. The installation went smoothly, looks and feels like it's on straight. I'm going golfing tomorrow so if my putting is bad I'm going to blame it on my grip not being aligned.
  7. I have an ideapad s300 and it's perfect for web browsing. I don't do any gaming or anything that requires a lot of memory. I'd highly recommend it to you if you can get it for the right price. $450 is a bit much for this computer...I got mine for $300 on a cyber Monday deal.
  8. I really need to get paid by them, but like I do so often, check out globalgolf.com. They sell used clubs in really good shape, they won't be new but they will be better then the Pinesmeadows you're currently playing. As others have said though, I would suggest studynig up on different short game shots and how to properly execute them. The clubs may not be the issue, but the could be...you never know!
  9. If you have the grip and supplies it's really cheap. Never seen it for a buck but I have seen $2 or thereabouts before per club.
  10. I've regripped a fair share of clubs and am very confident with it, I've just never regripped a putter before. Not that it's expensive, but where I live in South Dakota it ranges from $3-5 per club for labor. That's why I learned how to do it myself!
  11. A 4 and 5 hybrid, and any number hybrid for that matter, replace that numbered iron. They should hit roughly the same distance. I personally don't use hybrids but I know a lot of people who do and they love them. To answer your question in regards to carrying a 3-wood, that is a must have club in my opinion. If you go with the 4 and 5 hybrid set I'd keep the 5-wood in your bag as well. As far as staying with the same brand, despite what my signature says, I have no favorite. My Nike irons just ended up being very cheap when I got them and they hit really well when I tested them out. The wedges were a steal and hit just as well as any high end wedge on the market. I'll admit the Driver and 3-wood were added because they were Nike and I wanted to try something different then Callaway. I've found I like these Nike's better then any callaway clubs I've used in the past.
  12. This seems odd to me. As long as you're not putting yourself in harms way and not holding anyone up who is trying to hit on the range what's the issue? If someone leaves a few balls behind are you allowed to hit those or would that also be frowned upon?
  13. Welcome to the forum...alway snice to see another Michigander around here. Where do you play in MI?
  14. Hopefully this works...My work computer sucks so I'm typing this with what I remember from my highschool web design classes! Callaway Diabo Edge 3W I realize that link takes you to the 3W, but save that link and if GlobalGolf gets the 5 wood in you'll be able to check easier. edit: Despite me making that link and copy & pasting it, the link is blocked on my computer! Hopefully it works for you.
  15. Why do want to play something comparable when that one is so nice to you? Check out Globalgolf.com, they sell used clubs in really good shape. If they have it I'd buy it for yourself, if not then start looking into alternatives. Since you're new to the game there is no sense in you going out and buying the newest and greatest club.
