  1. Instead we'll get a half-dozen articles about how DeChambeau tests his measuring devices for accuracy, an inevitable controversy about him taking too long to use three different devices to triangulate the position of the flag, and then back to him reading the greens with a protractor.
  2. 4, 4, 5, 1 My course has a lot of opportunities for going into parallel fairways. I usually play late in the day so the course is less crowded but if my ball goes into another fairway, I yell.
  3. I don't think that's much of a "stain" and everyone knows BDC has some history with pushing the limits of what he can get away with: that funky putter, using a compass to determine "the true position of the pin", taking 6 minutes to hit a putt.
  4. @boogielicious summed it up pretty well. It's also worth noting that they've been asking if the game "needs to change" for a while now. Commentators can't just report on the tournaments and then move on, they're paid to talk about golf. If they didn't ask unnecessary questions, they wouldn't have anything to talk about.
  5. Did I read this right? The guy with a 10 handicap is beating scratch golfers and he's screaming about socialism and participation trophies?
  6. 3W. I love the control, the distance, and the sound I get off the tee.
  7. That's ok, us Gen-X'ers don't care what you think. 😉
  8. The article is a lot of feelings and pretty light on fact. The author says "it feels unfair" but it isn't. As someone else in this thread already said, everyone is free to put a line on their ball. I also don't agree with the author's contention that a line on the ball is, itself, an object. It strikes me as a very semantic, navel-gazing argument grounded (again) in feelings more than fact
  9. The irony here is that complaining about your "brand" does more to hurt your "brand." Grow up Bryson; everyone expects players to react after a poor shot. They follow other golfers after bad shots. The camera follows MLB pitchers into the dugout after a bad inning. They follow quarterbacks off the field after an interception. You're well-compensated for the extra scrutiny. This guy has a history of petulance when things don't go his way: complaining when his goofy putter was ruled illegal, pushing back on the criticism over his 6 minute putt, etc.
  10. I don't know if it's appropriate to say something to a client, but when my mother-in-law would say something like that, or just include the person's race when relating a story, my wife would ask her, "does the person's race matter in this story?" (It never did.) I don't think my wife really accomplished much because then my MIL would do the same thing but then follow it with "I know I'm not supposed to say that part" or something similar.
  11. I don't have the patience for one pocket. I like pocketing balls too much. 🙂
  12. I have a Brunswick Gold Crown shoe-horned into my basement. I got it at a good price and figured I'd just renovate/add-on to the house to make it fit better. The obstructions are minimal but I just use the table for practice so if the stairs get in the way, I just move the cue ball. My main playing cue is a Poison Bolt that I won in a raffle at a league tournament. I like the feel a lot more than a custom cue I have. Maybe I'll take pictures later. Favorite game would definitely be 14.1 but the closest league is up in Syracuse (90 minutes from my house). The league I'm in plays 8, 9, and
  13. I voted because I'm a member of the site and on some level part of the intended audience but the more I think about it, what is the intended audience in terms of golfing ability? And for the record, I voted that I wouldn't pay for it. I'm not a fan of golf instructional videos and articles. I have no idea if I'm doing the the thing the video is trying to correct and if I make a change, I don't know if I'm really doing it right. I feel like one-on-one instruction is best for me.
  14. At my course, the clubhouse and pro shop are closed and therefore so are the restrooms. There are two port-johns on the course that I think are unlocked.
  15. They've "clarified" the statement and said that public courses can also open if they follow distancing guidelines. State-run courses are closed but otherwise, it's up to the operators. My course and another in the area re-opened. No carts, no inside access, maintain 6' distancing and "if they catch you'll they'll ask you to leave." So far, I've just seen a couple grounds crew, I doubt they're worrying about how close people are getting to each other.
