  1. But It’s not official. And even if you don’t care, you won’t be able to do it yourself after the first of the year.
  2. Hey Ben, good to see you’re still around! I remember those irons. They’re beautiful! Sorry, I can’t help with the driver though…
  3. 79 with a 3-putt from 30’, and an OB approach shot from 175 yards in the middle of the fairway.
  4. Not the same thing at all though, and the technology to limit speed based upon your current location is simple, and already exists.
  5. It’s worth mentioning that you don’t have to be a member of a club or any other “governing body” in order to maintain a handicap. Go online to your state Golf Association, and you should be able to sign up for a GHIN handicap through them. The cost should be something in the neighborhood of $25-$30 per year. From there you will be able to manage your handicap via a simple app on your phone…
  6. Absolutely not. Sadly, sometimes bad things happen. While it’s easy to say that doing anything that prevents some of those bad things must be good, emotion can cloud the ability to appreciate other serious, unintended consequences that may arise in implementing those things.
  7. It’s only one aspect of excessive speed which kills. Excessive speed too fast for the conditions, type of surface, visibility due to terrain, radius of curves, proximity to pedestrians, and many more, are all factors that can contribute to speed related accidents. And no, I don’t want my car limited in that manner either... You could reduce ALL alcohol related driving deaths by banning cars too. But that wouldn’t be a reasonable solution either...
  8. Along similar lines. A simple governor will limit top speed too. Since we know that excess speed kills, why not limit all cars to the speed limit? Hell, with gps, it could easily be road/street specific. Even school zones could be programmed in. I see little difference between the two, except the speed limitation would likely be more reliable...
  9. If the primary reason that you’re not reaching greens in regulation is because of the distance that you’re able to hit the ball, it’s time to move up a set of tees.
  10. More steps along the road towards ending personal responsibility... ”But the car told me I was sober, so it’s not my fault!”
  11. But you still can’t drive a nail very effectively with a screwdriver. If the clubs aren’t at least marginally suited to you, you’re not likely to progress and may get frustrated quickly and never really give the game a chance. Does someone “need” $3500 worth of clubs to learn/enjoy the game? Of course not. But a decent, relatively “full set”, even if used, that are appropriate in terms of physical fit and shaft will go a long way in starting out.
  12. Ah yes, the old “when we don’t win, it’s just because we didn’t really want to” argument. Of course, it only applies to the SEC. No other teams face the same thing. I’d offer that genuinely better teams should have more depth to them and pulling a senior or 3 from both teams shouldn’t affect the overall outcome much...
