  1. This pretty much comes as no surprise, I'd hope, to anyone here. However, I've had multiple exchanges with people both online and in person about how leaving it in is better where people were sure I was wrong. One person tried to explain that they wouldn't have changed the rule if it was actually a beneficial thing. I'll obviously be leaving/asking the flag to be left in whenever I putt.
  2. There really hasn't been any movies that I've watched recently that I've really really enjoyed. Most things are just something that I put on and zone out. The oldest put on Solo and I just never got interested enough to pay attention. We did watch Aquaman in the Theater last month I think, that was enjoyable enough but not great really. I don't know if it's just that I've become jaded or because I can't suspend my disbelief enough recently to find anything really good. Birdbox and A Quiet Place were both pretty decent too, but there were too many points in both those movies where I just was annoyed with stupid things. Not really sure what my problem is, but it's really taken the fun and overall enjoyment of watching movies away.
  3. RDR1 first? I thought RDR2 takes place before RDR1.... I played RDR1 years ago and enjoyed it from what I can remember. I've been watching a streamer play FO76 and it looks pretty fun, and so far I haven't seen the amount of annoying random people attacking him that I had expected so I may end up picking that up at some point when they fix the game bugs. I did pick up Witcher 3 goty edition, with everything completely maxed out I am able to stay locked at 60 fps, but I'm so used to playing at 90+ fps minimum that 60 fps seems to be bothering my eyes a little bit. I'm trying to figure out if there's a way to break through the games 60 fps frame limiter. That said, the game does look really good graphically. **edit I may have originally missed the setting for unlimited fps or it may have showed up after I edited one of the files but I now have it unlocked and it's much better at 100+ fps** At some point I might look at OW again, part of the problem was I picked it up shortly after moving to PC so I was really not very good at KB/M making aiming and movement a pain.
  4. I already had one 1070ti with the high bandwidth bridge and was able to pick up a second for 300. I can't drop 1200 on a GPU, and in games that support sli the 1070ti's are right around 2080 level fps. I'l have to check that game out though, thanks for the suggestion. I had thought about 76 but I dislike that it's forced multiplayer. Also, there are a lot of bugs in the game right now. I've never been a big fan of Battlefield, I had tried previous iterations of it and it just wasn't for me. I played OW for a little while, but I'm not nearly good enough to for that game. I don't have a joystick for Elite Dangerous. I have thought about Assassin's Creed and Hitman, but I've never been too great at playing stealth focused games, I'm a guns blazing style. I have heard Witcher 3 is supposed to be good, and also heard the books are a good read. Cyberpunk 2077 did look interesting to me, but yeah it's out there a ways. I'll have to see if there are any good cyber sales for the games you guys have mentioned.
  5. Now that I've completely rebuilt my PC to be pretty beastly, along with a 1440p 144hz monitor. I have been looking for something that will be fun to play but will also take advantage of the hardware I have, aka be graphically amazing. Destiny 2 at 1440p runs 120-144 fps basically all the time, but once I cap out my power level per expansion I get bored. I re-downloaded Skyrim SE, put a bunch of mods in place, but that game doesn't really support SLI so I have to cut back to 1 gpu. While it looks amazing it's not really as entertaining as it was when I played it before. I put so many hours into that game that it just doesn't hold my interest anymore. I have Fallout 4 that I never finished, I could mod that up to make it look really nice I suppose, but I really want to find a new game to play. Red Dead 2 won't be coming to PC for awhile, not sure I'm all that interested in Anthem, and even if I were it's not coming until late February from what I understand right now. So disappointing to put so much money and time into building my PC only to not have anything worthwhile to play. Just in case anyone's curious as to my build: i7 8700k @ 5ghz cooled by a 240mm AiO 16gb DDR4 @ 3200mhz cs 16 Dual MSI Duke 1070 Ti's in sli Samsung Evo 860 m.2 1 tb ssd Seagate 2 TB hd Corsair Gaming STRAFE silent mechanical keyboard Logitech Proteus Spectrum mouse AOC AGON 23.8" 1440p 144hz monitor
  6. The other courses are much better, it's worth trying them. The one I played the day after we went to that course was really nice. I can't remember the name, but I am pretty sure I posted pictures of it on the forums here.
  7. I'm glad you confirmed what I was thinking. I was pretty sure it didn't matter if you played a second shot on the provisional as long as you are not passed the original ball and the time hadn't expired for the search.
  8. I hit the ball further now than I did when I was younger, but I can see that trend will probably start reversing over the next 10 or 15 years. Once I get the the point where a 180 yard par 3 requires more than an iron/hybrid I'll probably look at hanging it up. I know that's not even really that short, but that would be 4 or 5 clubs loss of distance, and it makes golf very not fun sounding. My point of view may change when the time comes, but probably not.
  9. Depending on the courses the guy plays, maybe he never has much reason to play knock down or flighted shots. If you don't play them it's not really something that I've found to be easy to just do. I work way more on full swing mechanics because that's way more important for me, so when I try a knock down shot on the course it rarely works out. Either I pure it and it flies full distance, or I overestimate how much to take off and come up way short.
  10. Blind draw 2 man scramble this weekend. Funny enough, got paired with the same guy that is in our usual four man group. He's a great guy, known him for nearly 30 years, but he's probably mid to upper 20's hcp and the tournament was not handicapped. Given my struggle this year, I just wrote off the possibility of a good score for the day and just played. We ended up shooting 5 over, which got 2nd place and won a skin. Somehow my game came together enough to hit a lot of good tee shots, some pretty good chips and pitches. Even sunk a couple longish putts. My partner kicked in on most of the holes where my tee shot went wayward and even helped save a few pars by making some long putts. Overall a really good day.
  11. Yes it does, I have multiple vertebra fused together, have since I was 18. I still haven't really had any issues with other areas of my back from it. Granted I don't golf full time for a living, but it's still been nearly 22 years without an issue.
  12. Yup, I can't count the number of times that hitting the pin has saved me, and can't remember the last time it screwed me.
  13. You are probably right, I had a long discussion with a guy we were playing against in league about how it's better to leave the pin in when off the green. He started talking about the "confidence" it gives to take it out, how he got screwed too many times from not taking it out, etc... Even though, that same night, I proved it was a benefit because had a much shorter put after a chip because the ball hit the pin. He just kept saying, that was lucky, it doesn't usually happen that way. I just shook my head.
  14. I was told " R&A says, they've looked at the stats (and I guess they might be a bit more comprehensive than yours) and found that there's no advantage nor disadvantage to leave the flag in, hence the change." It's fine, people can believe whatever they want, but I bet they leave the pin in even though it "provides no advantage".
  15. It's astonishing to me how many comments I saw on a youtube video today about the changes thinking that leaving the flag change is the best rule and how few understood the point of changing the drop height. Some guy tried to tell me that leaving the flag in on putts will hurt as often as it helps....
