  1. And you or a loved one could get killed by someone running a red light, making sudden lane changes at a high rate of speed, texting, falling asleep at the wheel or a myriad of other distractions. If your loved one died due to these would it not be as tragic, or is it only if alcohol is somehow involved, then it makes it worse? +1 - Once emotions get in anything bad laws are sure to follow. Auto crashes may be the biggest threat to children, but that wouldn’t be from drunk drivers killing them. Lots of innocent people get killed in auto crashes every year, not all are killed by drunk drivers. I’ll pose a question to all who said yes to the post, if all drunk driving fatalities are unavoidable if the person who is drunk didn’t drive, why are there any other traffic fatalities? Obviously if you haven’t been drinking you should never get in an accident? I don’t agree that it will save that many lives. I believe there are something like 6,000 traffic fatalities during sunrise and sunset, when visibility is poor. Why don’t we ban driving during these times? You’re 61% number is incorrect. And I posted this on another thread a couple of years ago and @iacas mentioned it already, but I’ll go ever further then he did, not only are more than 50% of all alcohol-related fatalities a single car crash, killing the driver and occupants with them, but not all alcohol-related fatalities mean that the person driving was impaired. An alcohol-related fatality is if anyone in the car has alcohol in their system. So a Designated Driver could be in a traffic fatality with 3 drunk passengers and this is 4 people involved in an alcohol-related fatality. Or you could have a beer and some dope runs the red light hitting you and causing a fatality, but you being a driver and having alcohol in your system are probably going to be the one who goes to jail. I’m glad you’ll accept the inconvenience, I’m not.Plus you’re not going to phase out all older cars in 15 years. Sorry for your loss, but same question as before, would you feel any different if it was a red light runner that caused the same pain? Not to be callous, just what is the difference. As stated before, more than 50% of the 10,000 are the drivers of the vehicles. Et tu Brute.... + A Bunch...... + A bunch More... No, my vote would not change in the least. Most people that cause alcohol-related fatalities are people with BAC around 0.15, almost twice the legal limit. With as many Bars, wineries, distilleries, breweries, restaurants and how prevalent alcohol is, it’s amazing how safe it is on the roads or is it really becasue it’s not as much of a threat as the media and the government make it out to be. I think @Pretzel said it great, emotions = bad laws.
  2. I've played them in the green keepers revenge tournament before, they are fine in that instance. Usually on some ridiculous slope so that you need the larger cup to have a chance to make it.
  3. When I was in SD, both of the ClubCorp course allowed fivesomes to play. However, the caveat was that they had to keep up with the group in front of them or play in under 4 hours. Any group that did not do that, would not be allowed to play as a fivesome again. My threesome followed a fivesome and we didn't wait for them hardly at all. They were really fast, I thought we would catch them and only did towards the end when they were waiting for the group ahead of them. But we played in under 3:45 hours. So no problem with fivesomes at a private course.
  4. Damn, I actually won this week. Guess it helps to pick the winner.
  5. Just signed up again, after missing last year
  6. Another decent round today at Shadowridge. Didn’t hit the driver quite as good but good enough to shoot about the same score. 38-39-77 2 birdies 7 bogeys and 9 pars, only 1 3-putt but had a 6 on a par 5 today, ugh. Did play blue tees today. Another great day in San Diego. 👍
  7. Best round of the year yesterday at Shadowridge Golf Club in Carlsbad. Might have finally solved my swing issues with the driver. 39-37-76 No Sixes Round No doubles 2 birdies 6 bogeys and 10 pars Only bad was 2 three putts for bogey.
  8. The vengeful spirit IPA was probably my favorite, and the 23rd anniversary IPA was very good. I also had a Millennial Decay IPA which. Was good too. So many beers to try.
  9. Played Bernardo Heights CC yesterday. 40-40-80 3 doubles 4 birdies 5 pars 6 bogeys nice course, onto Shadowridge today. Weather is nice, and beer at Stone Brewing was great too!
  10. I’ll be in SD this afternoon, will be playing some golf Friday-Monday, as well as hitting a few breweries. My buddy and I are playing a few of the ClubCorp courses. Friday - Bernardo Heights CC Saturday - Shadowridge GC Sunday - Shadowridge GC Monday - Morgan Run (Have played this one before a few years ago.)
  11. Have been playing like crap all year, finally had a good round in our Interclub B-Team playoff match, plus my partner and i won the match by 7 points and the team won by 2 points. So all and all a good day. 39-38-77
