  1. Lost ball rule and pace of play

    If the new rules are implemented, the 3-minute rule will hopefully speed up play and make people think about hitting a provisional ball more often.
  2. Courses without "real" senior tees.

    Don't call them the ladies tees, they are the red tees or forward tees. My Dad picked up golf at 66, and he didn't want to play the red tees (ladies tees) either. And my wife finally got him to move up to the reds last year and this year I got him to move to the greens and he loves it. He's reaching more holes in regulation or at least being much closer and he has never had more fun playing. So he will probably play the forward tees from now on.
  3. Saving Belmont GC

    I've been to Richmond and play lots of golf and didn't even know this course existed.
  4. Newport Cup event here we come. I'll go to Orlando around the New Year to visit my parents. And then back to Augusta for the Master's in April.
  5. Courses without "real" senior tees.

    You wouldn't want to play the senior tees at my course, they are ahead of the red tees.
  6. Courses without "real" senior tees.

    Maybe you can do a blend of the whites and the red tees so that you're playing the longer holes from the reds and the shorter holes from the whites. We have two sets of blended tees at my course, other courses I play have done the same thing.
  7. What'd You Shoot Today?

    40-40-80 Played like crap today, couldn't get anything going but had another no 6 day though. 5 5 4 4 4 5 4 5 5 4 - 40 5 4 5 4 4 4 5 4 4 5 - 40
  8. What'd You Shoot Today?

    An ok round but it was a good day betting wise for me. I was the big winner for the day. 41-37-78 but 4 birdies, 2 doubles and 2 3-putts. Started bogey birdie birdie double double.
  9. The (No) Sixes Challenge

    Played our semi-final match yesterday for our season long fourball match. We won so onto finals but I also had a no sixes round. 5 5 5 3 5 3 5 4 4 - 39 4 3 4 4 4 5 4 4 4 - 36 75 (+4) 5 bogeys and 1 birdie
  10. What is Your Punch-Out Club?

    I voted 6 or 7i but I use an 8 iron at times as well.
  11. Newport Cup

    Shorts weather.
  12. Scottsdale Courses

    Here's a whole thread on Scottsdale/Phoenix courses.
  13. The Importance of a Trouble Shot

    I would've played it the same way as @iacas other than I may have played an 8-iron if it was a back pin and the 9 for a front pin. A hooded 7, 8 or 9 iron is my go to shot for getting out of trouble when you want to hit a nice hook.

  15. The (No) Sixes Challenge

    I played in a one day member guest today and was cruising along very well, 2 over through 13 and had the reachable par 5 14 next. Hit my shot a little right hits a hard spot jumps left into trees, I pitch out get it near the green and just miss 10 foot for par, so my no sixes round died. Ended up shooting 36-38-74 15 pars and 3 bogeys.
