    USGA/R&A Finalize 2019 Rules of Golf

    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.

    USGA/R&A Finalize 2019 Rules of Golf

    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.

    USGA/R&A Finalize 2019 Rules of Golf

    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".

    USGA/R&A Finalize 2019 Rules of Golf

    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....

    Factors in Selecting Your Driver

    I have only 2 factors, price point and distance via testing. And by distance I also mean consistency *as much as can be gauged via the club vs my swing*. I don't care about looks, sound, company, or any other factor.

    GAME GOLF Accuracy

    When I got the pixel 2 xl the gps on the app wouldn't work at all, but after they updated the app it has been working fine since then. It could be an issue with the version he and the phone he has.

    11 Reasons You Stink at Golf

    For me, the list is about 50/50. Half are off base and the other half pretty close to spot on. But it's just another list of opinions for the most part.

    Summer 2018 Outing - Dayton Area

    I apologize for missing this post. Wednesday was my first year wedding anniversary so I spent all my extra money on dinner and a trip to Hocking Hills to celebrate.

    League Play: Pros and Cons?

    If I weren't playing with my dad I wouldn't be in the league I am. They don't really follow the rules of golf, a lot of pot smoking, slow play, etc. I don't have anything against the guys in the league, I just don't mesh well with them generally speaking. If there were a league that I could join that was more serious about following rules I think the personality of the people in it would probably be more in line with mine. All that said, I echo what others have said, it works out really well to have a set day each week to play. I use league night as a practice round this year, working on my swing and trying different shots because of the relaxed nature of the league at least.

    Range Golfer vs Course Golfer: Who Wins?

    Range work doesn't always translate directly to the course. On the range everything is off of flat ground, basically perfect lie. Course work you learn more about how to play downhill/uphill/sidehill shots. That said, swing changes really should be worked on at the range. There is not really a set answer to this question as both parts are needed. I would lean towards the person who played the course constantly having the advantage *all other things held equal* just through course knowledge if pushed to make an answer at gunpoint.
  12. Seriously, I did, I said I could appreciate other people liking the idea. Many other people have mentioned how it would benefit them if it were different, why is it wrong that I mention that it wouldn't benefit me?
  13. That's my point though, I would already be doing that just because it's my personality. Changing the number of holes the course is wouldn't change that. I would just have less variety of holes that I'll be replaying. I never said or indicated that they do. I was speaking from my point of view. Which is also why I specifically mentioned appreciating that people who have a more busy lifestyle might like the idea of shorter rounds.

    Dustin Johnson Hits Jack's Old Clubs

    So, DJ hits his modern driver 390?
  15. I just don't find golf to be a "time sink" because I enjoy the time being there. I don't really want to get it over with quicker. I mean, I don't enjoy regular rounds that last 5+ hours because the course is slow, but it's not about the 5+ hours total, it's because the time per hole is too long. That wouldn't change if it were 12 hole rounds. On a slow day each hole would still last as long. I can appreciate people who have a more busy lifestyle thinking that having the option of play 6 or 12 holes would fit in their schedules better though. For my part though, it wouldn't make me able to play anymore than I currently do.
