    New Initiative To Stop Cheating

    Know what your saying, but I think I would have said a kid shooting 79 and saying it was a 78 is the same, just a matter of degree. I really don't think cheating a little is a thing.

    Your most useless Christmas golf gifts.

    I got this key chain cylinder that had a little plunger on top. You were supposed to use press the plunger, it would release a bit of powder that you could mark your ball on the green with. The manufacturer suggested you fill it with fertilizer to help the grass grow. I visualized this dime sized spot of grass a half inch higher then the rest of the green. Its in my junk drawer.

    Tee or No Tee?

    I always use a tee. Arnold Palmer watched his grandson drop a ball on a par 3 on one of those made for TV things. He told him you only get 18 perfect lies a round, don't waste one of them.

  8. I love those guys that take their hat off, run their hand through their sweaty scalp, then hold out the hand for me to shake.

    I would say overrated with no inside knowledge at all. He's just put on such a high pedestal its impossible for him to be underrated.

    Way underrated. I've seen too many guys hit a bad shot on a 4 and turn a 5 into an 8 with a bad decision. Physical ability can only overcome a poor choice so many times.

    "He's playing so bad he had to regrip his ball retriever" One of my best if I do say so myself.

    How Much "Simpler" Are the 2019 Rules, Really?

    One of the things that make the rules tough for the average player is the rules may change or be open to interpretation. For example, the discussion on an integral part of the course. If I'm understanding correctly, if the committee calls a wall an integral part of the course you play it as it lies, otherwise you take relief. The only other sport that changes rules for venue is baseball with the DH. I think the common things are pretty easy to anybody who makes any effort to learn the fundamental rules.
