    11 Reasons You Stink at Golf

    You ride a cart? F*** Josh Sens, whoever the f*** he is. Anyway, I can compile eleven reasons why I suck at golf easily. And twelve reasons why this article eats ass.

    What tee to play from?

    I cannot stress enough how the Longleaf Tee system (posted here by Iacas and reposted again) is something that you should base your play from.

    Golf Games for 6-person trip

    Yes. I once planned a trip with six golfers. Have three two-man teams. One player from each team plays in each group so the teams are split. The game is a 3 player (or in this case 3 team) match play format called 6's. I would suggest best net ball of each team. There are six points awarded per hole. This is because six points can be divided perfectly between three teams. If all three teams tie the hole, they each receive 2 points. If one team wins the hole, and the other two teams tie for 2nd, the winning team receives 4 points, the others receive 1 point. If two teams tie to win the hole, they each receive 3 points, while the last place team receives 0 points. If all three finish separately, the winning teams receives 4 points, 2nd place 2 points, and last place 0 points. Play it nassau style for front, back, and total. Third place team pays the first place team your selected dollar amount, while the second place team breaks even. Pick a dollar amount that can be divided well so that if two teams finish tied for first or last, their winnings/losings get split in half. Or use hole handicap as a tie-breaker. If you keep the same teams for all three rounds I'd also have a 54-hole and a 27-hole bet. I'd also play greenies and birdie skins, double skins for eagle. Another suggestion would be to do a three man scramble match play event for the second 18 on the 36 hole day, just in case some guys get fatigued playing that much. Text your scores back-and-forth so each team can track the match as it's played.

    League Play: Pros and Cons?

    As long as you like the league, I don't see any "cons" to playing in one. Except nine holes. I hate playing nine holes. Literally the only times I've played nine holes in the last twenty years was with my young nephews at a Par 3 course or holes 19-27. Mother f*** nine holes.

    Can't Seem To Get Better...

    You're not likely to get better at your age. Just have fun playing golf. My dad (who is about to turn 77) has a close group of friends that I've played golf with for many years. And their abilities and distance dropped off a cliff when they all became 70-75. My dad (who used to play 200 rounds/year) has quit. Practice, and keep trying to improve, but just enjoy the game. Also, Longleaf tee system. Design your own courses using google maps.

    Break 80: The 6-6-6 Concept

    I don't think about stuff like this at any point in any round. I just think about executing the next shot (which, of course, on certain holes, may depend on where I want to be for the shot after the current one). The only time I break with the above thought process is in match play, and not often even then. Also, nice hat, bro.

    2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive

    Underrated in the sense that rather than just a great local or regional course, it should be recognized as a great national course. I feel he was talking more about the course and it's playability, rather than challenge.

    2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive

    I have a buddy who's an avid golfer and since he's quite wealthy has played all kinds of great courses worldwide. He insists that Bellerive is the most underrated course he's played. I don't have much memory of it, but isn't this where they played the 2002 Ryder Cup that was delayed due to 9/11? I think it was.

    2 holes in 1 in a single round

    Steve Blass, former Pittsburgh Pirate pitcher and current broadcaster, did this a couple years ago.

    What's your biggest problem in golf?

    Without question, losing a swing feel. Mostly the takeaway and backswing. The downswing just comes naturally. Recently I developed a problem where I lost at least 1/2 club in distance and like 20 yards off the tee. After tinkering I realized that my backswing had gotten a bit steep. Flattened it out and boom, distance back.

    Playing Golf With Fewer Clubs?

    Well, I rarely hit the 3 wood. Occasionally off the tee when either very prudent or a necessity. I hit the 5 wood a bit more. After that, I use all my clubs. I chip/pitch with 4 different clubs, and will hit greenside blast bunker shots with as many as 5 clubs, and occasionally 6. I don't get hitting a 9 & 7 iron but not the 8. I mean, if you can hit both of the former clubs, there's no reason at all why you can't hit the latter. Unless you have some huge mental thing going on, which I would suggest fixing.
  15. Who cares? I mean, I like this forum but if somebody who didn't know anything about golf asked why Group A hates golf while Group B loves it, I'd just point them to this thread right here. I thought Mickelson's actions were hilarious. The USGA can go f*** themselves. As far as I can tell Mickelson should have been disqualified. Again, who cares? Disqualify him. Don't disqualify him. Doesn't matter. It's not as if he was in contention. If some poor privileged white guy can't upgrade his SUV next year to the Asian Hand Job Nanny version, what do I care. DO NOT LOSE CONTROL OF YOUR COURSE IN SEARCH OF A NUMBER. And, Phil, just own what you did. It's fine to own what you did. A big old f*** you to the USGA is an appropriate response.
