  1. Perhaps it just fits my eye and/or I have been lucky there but I have scored better on 12 than any other hole on the course. A 150 yard hole is just easier for me than a 450 par four.
  2. I don’t get it. It’s just like 17 at the TPC it should be the easiest hole on the course. I played it a couple times as a 17 handicap and I’m -1 under. Just gets in the pros heads somehow
  3. Best technique in the game. Arnold Palmer said the bets golf advice he ever got was from his father on the golf grip. The second best advice he ever got was form Tommy Bolt who told him to always throw his club down the fairway so he can pick it up on his way towards the green.
  4. What is with the ugly matching shirts a number of the guys have been wearing Day, Finau, Fleetwood, Pieters?
  5. I believe the USGA added it to their appendix and it had been in the R&A appendix. The USGA had always dissuaded players from removing stones in the bunker whereas it was the norm outside of the US. The other difference I recall from my younger years was that the R&A allowed the use of the smaller "british ball" and the USGA did not.
  6. I just looked it up and the USGA added that local rule in 2004
  7. It has been universal for the R&A Rules since Adam was a lad but was only recently adopted as an allowable local rule by the USGA. I think that may have been the final item that made the two group's rules identical.
  8. i'm pulling for a Noren vs Thomas match.
  9. I have about 30 years with precisely the opposite experience. I play about 10 member/guest tournements per year at different clubs. 9 out of 10 will be bracket style four-ball match play and one will be a Ryder cup mixture. Most of the stroke play events I come across are one day lunch plus golf informal/fun affairs. How do you play a stroke play skins game?
  10. Interesting I have seen numerous articles that outside of the professional tour the vast majority of play in the US is still match play. Nassau, skins, better-ball etc. Match play or stable ford is probably most common outside of the US.
  11. I play often in the early morning when there is a lot of dew. If a caddie touches the line of putt (often with the end of the flag stick), it leaves a visible mark that can be used as an aim point. I assume this will not be allowed since it creates and advantage?
  12. I seem to recall Faldo saying years ago that if there were no sponsorships they all would be playing Mizuno.
  13. I have played them. Six out of 10 have public access. I am a member of two and get on one more based on reciprocity. The others took a bit of networking and schmoozing.
  14. Royal County Down -- best course The Old Course -- best town and always in awe North Berwick -- most fun Lahinch -- What Ireland is all about Augusta -- best experience, fried chicken and olives Kingsbarns -- most dramatic Fishers Island -- most scenic Ballybunion -- best craic Cypress -- best combination of scenery and shot value The Misquamicut Club -- Home
