  1. If you put two dots on your ball, that is a line. What if I put three dots forming a triangle that I can line up to the hole? Is that legal?
  2. Local media is reporting that his second test is negative. Good news, but it casts a shadow of doubt over testing that is driving policy to keep businesses and schools closed. Is he positive or not?
  3. Below is an article published by the CDC discussing the effectiveness of stopping flu-like viruses. Nonpharmaceutical Measures for Pandemic Influenza in Nonhealthcare Settings—Personal Protective and Environmental Measures - Volume 26, Number 5—May 2020 - Emerging Infectious Diseases journal - CDC There were 3 influenza pandemics in the 20th century, and there has been 1 so far in the 21st century. Local, national, and international health autho... Hardly anyone is using a mask properly. They are constantly touching them and not washing their hands. They aren't disposing or changing them when they get saturated. Masks COULD be effective IF used properly and with social distancing.
  4. This is certainly shocking. Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine Tests Positive For The Coronavirus DeWine was tested on Thursday as part of a protocol to meet with President Trump. He's the second governor known to have tested positive...
  5. You can also use this time to work on things that don't require full swing like gripping the club, putting, chip shots. Think about what you can do instead of doing nothing. Just a thought.
  6. I will head to my cart if we are falling behind. I will start heading to the next hole if we are really behind. I wouldn’t do this in a competitive round. I have to attest his score and want to be sure he isn’t cheating.
  7. It's getting easier for me to list parts of my body that DON'T hurt on a regular basis. It's getting worse since I cancelled my gym membership.
  8. Check out the prices on stuff!
  9. If THERE is going to be an exception on the tee box, then you are contradicting yourself. Using a line on the ball to line it up is either legal or not. Placing an alignment stick down on the tee box is just as illegal as putting one on the putting green. It offers just as much advantage on the tee box as it does the green. It assists a player in lining up a shot. I sense the conflict within you. Let go of your hate. Added: For the record, I did read the article, and it reminded me why I don't read the mindless drivel in golf mags.
  10. I am eligible next year. Sadly I remember a point in time when I thought the senior tour guys were really old. 😒
  11. I didn't word that very well. I meant that you can mark your equipment however you like, not that you can use your equipment as an alignment aid. I used to park my push cart parallel to my line of play, but stopped doing so because that could be considered an alignment aid. That's fine. I will gracefully bow out of the conversation here.
  12. No, and I don't intend to. Then it should also be illegal to have a mark on the top of the putter? Is this not also an alignment aid? Where does it end? It is illegal to put something on the course, not your equipment.
  13. Why do we have to keep trying to changing the game? If it doesn't really help much, why does there need to be a rule about it?
  14. BRRRR!!! Hoping to see pics/video from the 1st tee.
  15. Admittedly, it’s been a while since I have played Windy K. It’s not a bad course, but it did have significant thistle and crabgrass in the fairways and tee boxes. I think 1 also has ponds on the left side too. Slaps you in the face right off the bat. Every course is slipping a little except the higher priced ones. Arrowheads greens were very nice though and the fairways were in great shape given the mild drought here. Turtle creek is the old Greenville CC. Mainly these courses aren’t in the running because they’re too far from Dayton. For Springfield, I always like Locust Hills and Reid Park. Locust has a soft serve ice cream machine. You can’t beat an ice cream cone after a round on a hot day. It takes away the double bogey blues like nothing else.
  16. It could also be an indicator of balding. If so, I’m a 8.75 on a 1-10 scale.
  17. Awesome man. That would be my dream to play on a stage that big.
  18. Oakland Hills would be my top course as well. I love that place. I will soon be adding Valhalla and Firestone CC.
  19. I will stick with Pipestone. If we are talking bang for the buck, Homestead would rate up there. Venturing a little further south, I would suggest Shaker Run or Majestic Springs. I haven't been to either since my return from Florida, but I hear that they are both still very nice. I would have put Windy Knoll up there at one point, but not any longer based on what I am hearing. In it's prime, I would have added Moss Creek. Very sad story there. Going further north, I would add Arrowhead in Minster and Turtle Creek in Greenville. I'm not really sure where to draw the line.
  20. So because it kicked your arse as a beginner... 🤣 Cassel is a solid course for sure, but it's not what I would consider a top course.
