  1. Are you missing the read or speed? Or is it a poor stroke?
  2. One additional thing to look at is the size of the sole. Some wedges have a narrow sole which is nice from the fairway, firmer conditions and full shots. A wide sole can help people who have an issue with digging but can be tough on tight lies or hard pan. All of these are generalities and need to be fit for the specific swing.
  3. Golf is a great game in part because I can play with anyone (PGA pro, absolute beginner or 3 year old) and have fun. I don't need you to hit the ball well to play my game. Just keep up on pace and be good company. Sorry they are being rude (unless they are friends then all bets are off). Play with better people.
  4. I ordered the book. It might be coming today 😉 The concept of overlaying the shot map makes perfect sense.
  5. To be fair. He did say he "Can put inside 12'" not that he averages 12'. So the question (as I see it) still is a reasonable one. Let me rephrase it for my self. I can hit my gap wedge inside 15' about 30% (about 105 yds) of the time and average about 30'. At what point is it reasonable to attack vs play for the center?
  6. I guess that is the problem. I am trying to figure out what I am asking. I know that I need to hit solid consistent drives, eliminate wasted shots, miss in better spots and not blow putts by. How to figure out what the plan should be.
  7. I have been working hard on my game this year and have chipped at my handicap. I have been regularly shooting in the mid-70s. But today I played a match with a former college player and realized that I am not on that level. I need to hit more consistent shots and hit smaller targets to leave better putts. How do/did people break into the par to sub par scoring?
  8. Details are important in the rules. Thank you for the interpretation.
  9. I recently played on a course which had 3-4 bells to indicate that the fairways was clear on a blind tee shot. The bells were on large wooden posts (telephone pole sized). There was no local rule about this. WOuld you consider this an immovable object and would you get relief for swing and stance and line of play? Thanks
  10. Distance control, direction or green reading or all of them?
  11. I fail to see the logic in giving strokes on the hardest holes. If everyone bogies the holes they should and pars the holes they should you get 18 pushes if everyone gets a stroke on their handicap holes. All net par. If the same is applied but you give strokes on the differential 1-x then the High handicap wins all the hard holes and loses all the easy holes? It should come out the same just by a different route. Why is that "wrong"? If you are playing medal then it doesn't matter and you give X strokes.
  12. This is a constant debate but we can solve both issues at once. Give everyone their strokes. A 4 handicap "should" be likely to bogie the 4 hardest holes. A 10 should bogie the 10 hardest and an 18 should bogie all 18. If you give EVERYONE their strokes. It is Even for 1-4, 5-10 the 10 and 18 get a stroke and 11-8 only the 18 pops. It makes more more pushes but makes the math easier. JAT
