  1. Because I do not fully understand the ruling and want to be certain of how the penalty is applied and to whom. In certain situations in 4 ball only one player would be penalize and be out if the hole. Also because I've never come across a situation of a "General Penalty" before,
  2. Yes I have read this ruling, but it does not directly address my question. Is a general penalty when a partner stands behind his partner while he takes his stance and or putts. In which case, it would be a loss of hole? The second issue was the partner moved to a close proximity away after the player address the ball to make the putting stroke. And this occurred in a four ball partner match.
  3. I'm still puzzled about the ruling in regards to who is penalized? Would it be the player standing behind his partner or the player making the putt. It seems to me it would be a loss of hole by the partners in general?
  4. I had two friends that played Founders Clubs. I have never heard of them being a club made by Langert. How ever a search did bring up some info on those clubs. Is this the item you are referring to? eBay has a listing for this driver. My friends played this driver.
  5. A good source to look is often on eBay. While there may not be manufacture specifics, there usually is some descriptive information. I did a brief search on two items that listed the shaft flex in terms which were most likely used back when the clubs were made. One item indicated the shafts were medium/regular and another were described as regular. Your dealing with "Vintage" items which were popular long before the internet.
  6. Yes Erik, I thought the rule was 14-2b, but I'm not able to locate the ruling. Also meaning on the extension of their line. Is one step to the side consider to be close proximity, while a couple of steps, 2-3 steps considered away from the line enough? The guy took one stride away and then stepped back to observe.
  7. With the new rules effective this year, was there a change in allowing a partner in a Two Man Match Play which allows the partner to stand behind his partner during the time the player is putting? Also, is standing behind his partner in close proximity a breech of the rules? The two partners had a long putt from an identical position. They looked over there putts and discussed the situation. (Line of putt, break etc.) Then the one partner addressed the ball on the putting green and his partner was directly behind him at that moment. (about 7 feet to observe the line of the putt) He quickly realizes his partner was about to putt and steps to the side one stride and observes the putt, then steps back in behind the line of his partner to observe the line of the putt. Also how is close proximity determined or measured in distance?
  8. They are playing the THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES in Korea It's 11 am there and they are on the course playing. Yes you missed the DL.
  9. Congrats and thank you for your service. On a good note, military courses are generally in good shape and inexpensive for service members. One thing about golf, there's many great places to enjoy the game.
  10. As Dave mentioned above, it rounds of to the nearest number...
  11. It rounds in either direction. The round function will round up when number is = to 5 or greater. It rounds down when the number is less than 5
  12. I had a pair which the heel came off during my round. Really pissed me off as they were a really nice Nike "TW" dress shoes which I had only worn a few times.
  13. You can write a formula in your spreadsheet to adjust the scores and you can also write a formula to give you the course handicap. Or use the Ghin App for course handicap computations.
  14. Been there many a times. How about Shamus O'tooles He was a good golfer and fun to be with...
  15. I watched Paul and Art play at a small bar in St Lou back in the late 70's … With less than 75 people packed in a very small area, they preformed for a couple of hours. Yes I'm older than Dirt and thank the good man above I'm still around to talk about it … It would be rather depressing if I wasn't ...
