  1. too bad Tiger ran out of captain's picks. he could have pulled in Billy Mayfair and had them team together. how could they lose?
  2. I've done from thinking this guy had a rough time earlier in life and was affected by that, hence some of the scrapes he has gotten into.....to just an outright jerk. I don't even think what he said there was all that bad. He claimed it wasn't intentional, and yeah it's a competition so you try to use criticism to motivate you. But what ever happened to "hey, I didn't mean it. I screwed up. Let's move on, and I can understand why people are upset."
  3. Davis Love III in an early debut?
  4. There was a time that I was playing with some real idiots. I was paired up with them, and they were using my score for whatever game they were playing. That's fine by itself, but they starting telling me what to do and that they were counting on my score so don't screw up. At one point, I was told, when my ball was on the other side of the hole and I was first to play, "you need to help me find my ball, I have money on this". Two holes later, when searching for his ball again, I saw it in the woods and didn't say anything, let him take a penalty instead of being able to punch it out down the fairway with a reasonable hit. I just walked by and didn't say anything.... Probably seeing someone's ball and not acknowledging it is a breach of etiquette.....
  5. For pretty much the entire round I was behind a threesome as a single. The course wasn't too crowded, and as the round progressed they were falling a little behind each hole the foursome in front of them. The course doesn't have any parallel holes and there is pretty much always some kind of drive between holes, so it wasn't easy to see how far behind they were, and if I could just go around them until after I finally did. They started with people on the green while they were on the hole, but after a while, when I pulled behind them they didn't have anyone on the hole in front of them. Quite frankly they were very rude. I pulled up a couple of times while they were on the tee box and they didn't even say anything, let alone play along or go thru. For some reason, I think a ranger must have told them, they waved me thru on 16. I fanned one out to the right leaving myself an uphill shot to the green. I drove down and they didn't even say anything, wave, nothing. So I quickly pulled a club and wanted to get out of there. I ended up rushing, hitting my cart with the ball and it dropped right there. I simply picked up my ball, got in my cart and went to the next hole. I didn't see anyone on the last two holes, so they had some room in front of them. But yeah, I finally get to play thru and that happens.
  6. Welcome! I used to live in Western PA and there is a lot of great golf. Enjoy both the golf and this forum.
  7. I don't own any, but used to play with someone who did. They are beautiful!
  8. That would be a single piece of paper, really. I never have to buy golf balls, I am lucky enough to find enough of them. As long as clubs fit, they don't have to be expensive or even new. My driver is 7 years old and I don't see spending a lot of money for new woods as worth it. eBay is great for both woods (which tend to be standard length) and irons, because I have found ones with my specs (upright + longer than standard). In fact, I haven't bought woods anywhere else but eBay for 12+ years. Golf courses don't have to be expensive, in fact playing a cheap goat path is enjoyable when you are with people you enjoy playing with. But the most important thing is if improving is your goal, invest in lessons over technology. A new club, device, range finder, etc won't really improve your game. Lessons and trying new things will. I'm sure you know all this, but it's worth saying. Golf magazines exist to sell you stuff. You really don't need to buy anything other than the basics to have fun.
  9. My old home course in PA had 6 sets of tees and did not really breakdown between men and women except for the red tees, which were fifth of the sixth. The sixth set were juniors or beginners. If you were a woman who hit the ball further than a casual player, then you most likely were playing the fourth or third set of tees. Men technically had 4 sets of tees, but it was strictly by distance, and how far you hit the ball. And they had hybrid tees of different sets of tees for people in-between, so it cut out some of the trouble if you were struggling on the higher set. It was very smart, and I don't see many courses doing that. We had a number of women who played from the third set in, and a couple who could play from the first/second set. Also some older gentlemen who played from the fourth.
  10. Nice! I caddied for a lot of people with putters like that in the 80s and 90s.
  11. A quick google from a vet in the UK states that a dog cannot pass a golf ball. It can stay in the stomach as long as something doesn't shove it into the intestines, which would not be able to handle it. The best thing that could happen is that he vomits it back up. Barring that, it might have to be removed surgically. Fingers crossed. I hope for the best!
  12. That was a non-apology apology, take back the apology, tell the haters **** you, but I love you, even though you hate me. All while looking right up his nose....Yup! I'm a fan!
  13. Yeah..."I walk so fast and hit it so far that it's unfair". Kind of like "woe is me, I'm so rich it hurts to sit down because my wallet is so fat"
