    Your First Car

    1987 black firebird just like knight rider.Awesome car especially as it got older.You didn't even need a key to turn it on.Just turn the key cylinder and it cranked.Tell me what other car can do that.Haa

    The Match: Tiger vs. Phil Showdown for $9M

    Darn it ,I missed that.Didn't get to see any till last hole of regulation and the extra holes since I watched free.Read on here about it being free.Sad part is there's no other 2 golfers that you get get and have people pay to see.All these good players can't stack up against legends.

    Is pace of play (or slow play) a real problem?

    We'll they may have not let u play through cause it was opening hole.I would have waited till 2nd hole to let u play thru too.I give people extra time on first hole because they might have not warmed up.
  4. Course playing harder because its not hard with bare lies making it longer since you don't get the roll out.Your old course probably didn't have much rough either and greens were probably slower.

    USGA Seeking Feedback on Distance "Issue"

    I mean by all the new clubs and new balls.Now I'm not saying the new clubs are that much better but every year there's something new out that's supposed to be better.The research and development business of these company's get paid to create new stuff.That's what I mean about the money.

    USGA Seeking Feedback on Distance "Issue"

    Golf has the same problem nascar does.Its all about money so nothing will be changed or stopped.Research and development will keep others from being able to compete better with the top golfers and top teams.If they stopped all the advances in technology then what would be the point of all those jobs developing it.Imagine if there was cure for cancer well guess what?Medical field just lost lots of money plus people would live even longer.

    Cheating in Tournament

    Exactly.You can't just say you saw him do wrong without collaboration from others.If you said he done wrong and got penalized then he could turn around and say same about you and you would be penalized.Yeah he would be lying but if he cheats already then he has no problem same about you.

    Draw vs Fade: Which is Cooler & Reliable

    I say the fade is cooler and more reliable.Draw is nice for getting more distance but it isn't going to hold a green on an approach like a fade will and for me a fade is more my natural swing.

    Should divots be considered ground under repair?

    Amen that.Having to hit out of someone else's damage to course has never been right.The problem is sometimes its hard to tell if its a old divot or just an issue with grass growth.

    Legal Chipper

    Exactly plus your not gonna chunk a chipper.
  11. It will Definately allow the viewers on tv and at the event to see hole better with a flagsticks still in but will look weird on tv watching guys putt with flagsticks in.Caddies should be happy cause it will be less work for them having to put flagsticks back in.

    Bought a SkyTrak

    There's nothing wrong with the skytrak.With an inside setup with a mat on a level floor it is as accurate as you can get.I put mine in an outside building that I can swing freely.I made a frame our of pc tubing with an impact screen along with a projector.I've had success outside on shaded range off mats and what ball did was identical to what skytrak showed.

    Is pace of play (or slow play) a real problem?

    In our tournaments id take 5 hrs every time.Its usually pushing 6.It is hard to go under 5 when our playing for something other than fun and you have 120 man shotgun with various skills levels.Also courses are setup tough and were playing 6500 plus yards and some are spread out.The country club types take shorter time because tees are near greens instead of driving qtr mile to tees. Yeah I misread that ,sorry.Single can make 2 hrs easy with nobody holding them up.

    Is pace of play (or slow play) a real problem?

    Yeah I agree.No idea how a 4sum can play in 2 hrs unless they are running to they're balls and hitting without even taking 10 secs to get info and also not concerned about if others are hitting.Even if your hitting fairways and within 15 ft of hole every time it still doesn't add up.Even lady's tees I don't see that.All courses are not created equal however.No rough,small greens,short tees and very good playing can really shorten your round.By myself I can play in 2 hrs but not in a 4 sum.
  15. Well I know one of our Amateur tour champ flight guys that is really good but I'd still say is 4 to 5 strokes worse than the average pro in the top 50 id say and still shoots 70-72.I was thinking of one of the top pros I think would shoot 8 to 10 under the rating.Rating of 74.5 with 140 slope at 6900 yards and I think they shoot 60-63 on the par 71 layout.
