  1. 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.

    Provisional Ball Ruling

    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.

    A *Serious* Loss of Distance!

    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.
  4. 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.

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    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.

    Predict Tiger's 2019 Season

    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.

    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.

    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.
