  1. I have said this before but i think for higher HC's gps is the way to go. If you chunk a shot that goes 30 yards are you really going to reshoot your target? Will you be comfortable lasering from 240 out knowing you will be lucky to get within 40 yards of the green? You can look at gps discreetly. Its all personal preference but i like gps but 5 yards doesn't matter to me. As others have said you can try gps with your phone for free and see how it works for you. To each their own but thats my 2 cents.
  2. None of the Biogenies players suspended failed a test that I know of. Edit: Spitfisher beat me too it with much more information
  3. A club doesn't help you unless you hit it consistently. 200 yard shots are trouble. If you hit your 3w ok 2/3s of the time you are doing good.
  4. The rule I would like to see changed is eliminating the penalty for hitting the flagstick in the hole when on the green. This is just mostly to speed up the game. I don't think it would affect the game much at all. If a playing partner chips over the green and I am ready, I can go ahead and putt as they are getting to their ball, without having to pull the flag or having someone else do it. Possibly not having the flag replaced in time for the other players pre shot routine. If I hit a chip to 2' I can walk up while getting a look at the line and hit the ball in. If I have to
  5. I agree 100% how can they take out wrestling and leave or add games like curling or bowling. Wrestling is a basic human sport. Humans have wrestled as long as we have been in existence. I am not saying that I don't think world class bowlers or curlers(?) don't have incredible skill as well as natural ability, but to me that is not what the Olympics should be about. If you where to take the top 20 video game players in the world they would have the same traits (skill and natural ability) but I think everyone would agree that video games have no place in the Olympics. I am not a fan o
  6. Wait you mean like Golf?
  7. Hey at least your a better golfer on xbox then all these guys are in real life.
  8. I am going to post my last 50 rounds for anyone that is interested. I did notice that I do play a course that I feel is rated incorectly for my game (Lincoln Park) 65.1 107. This is a short course that has many birdie opurtunitys but anything long is most likely gone and some places if you miss the fairway you will have little chance of finding your ball because of high grass. The sort par 4's are all doglegs that unless you can shape the ball accurately you have to tee off with a mid iron. It also has a par three's of 193 229 and 230. I have only two rounds since 2010 at that cou
  9. After seeing the responses after I got home I decided to see what my last 20 rounds were. I came up with 95.55 gross score on my last 20. I get these charts from my online handicap calculator. I only get the score chart when I enter the score hole by hole so you are correct that I play more rounds than I show in my stats. I would guess that I do 2/3 of my rounds hole by hole and the other 1/3 by just entering my front/back. I am not selective in how I do this I will do it if I have the scorecard but my last two rounds a net 92 and a net 67 it was a tournament and they wanted the s
  10. This is true my current handicap is 18.0 and my anti handicap is 26.6. My last five differentials have been: 29.1 14.3 15.7 23.1 36.9 When I shot the 14.3 I was an 18.3 so I shot 4 under my differential. With the 15.7 I probably was close to 3 under my differential. If I played these rounds against 10 low handicappers I would have a very good chance to beat them all twice but if I played 5 matches against one low handicapper he would most likely beat me 3 to 2. When figuring out my anti handicap I also noticed I had a 6 round stretch where my net score was:
  11. My take on this is if your so concerned with making sure the pace of play is acceptable for you and the golfers that will play behind you, you should have joined him on the first tee. That way if he was taking too long you could have said something. By not playing with him I would get the impression that you were not in a hurry. Just for my own curiosity why didn't you join him, you were playing behind a 2 some He wasn't holding anyone up because you stated that he joined the group in front of him at the fourth hole. I doubt they waited for 10 minutes to let him to join them.
  12. Fine for the sake of this argument I will agree that you only cost each group 5 minutes. I don't agree but lets say you are correct. You play through 6 groups of 4 costing them 5 minutes each. The total time that cost other golfers is 6x4x5= 120 minutes. I doubt that you playing through 6 groups will save two hours on your round but even if it does the net time saved for golfers on the course is still zero. It just gives me the impression that you think your time is more valuable then everyone else.
  13. No I have no problem with having a ball on the green when I putt. I just think if you have marked and the only time that you can replace the ball without possibly disturbing someone else, is when another player is replacing and getting ready to putt, you should wait unless you know each others putting habits and it won't create uncertainty as to who is going to putt first. I agree, most of the time if I am nowhere near any ones line or close to the hole I will just put my putter down to mark the ball. I then take a quick look at it to make sure there is no mud on it, take a quick wi
  14. I would agree, but you have to know who you are playing with. Sometimes when this happens to me I will have to ask whose turn it is. I can't always tell who is away and I don't want to putt just before someone else putts, nor would I want someone to do this to me. If they are a slower putter you should let them get started in their routine before placing your ball. Like someone said earlier you can read a put without having the ball in place. If you are someone that uses the line on the ball I understand you want the ball in place. On another subject about putting using the l
