  1. The Open replaced Daly with Streelman. Daly replaced the Open with Barbasol, where I assume he can ride and spiders are more benign.
  2. Had the same issue last Friday, lucky for me one in the group had a big slice so I spent a lot of time walking in the woods.
  3. Cheating is gaining an unfair advantage over an opponent. I think most players cheat themselves vs somebody else. The Hollywood handicaps catch up to you in those events where you have to hole out every shot. We play a lot of team events, two best ball etc, and have a lot of guys who will pick up at double if their score is irrelevant to the team score, or take the 2 foot gimmie for par if we have 2 pars in. I love playing them in individual events because now they have to make it. A lot of 12's can't break 90 if they have to hole everything.
  4. Read the title and thought, Is that what the call a foot wedge now?
  5. An unusual sound would bother me, but that's a sound of the game.
  6. Out of all the bodily fluids I've seen left on golf course, spit is pretty low on the list of my concerns. Except for the guys that spit sunflower seeds on the green, special place in hell for them.
  7. Lol, I even have fun on a bad round. Stressful job so I understand the difference between work stress and play stress. Golf is always relaxing for me, more so when I win!
  8. I golf for fun, this does not seem like fun.
  9. Up here in New England, the winter depression is lasting to mid May.....
  10. A few years ago a buddy called and asked if I could be an emergency fill in for his team in an outing that was going out in a 1/2 hour. I made it. got an ace on the 17th. 135 guys and I did not know one of them. I passed.
  11. Them and the ones that spit sunflower seeds on the greens.....they should be forced to watch 12 hours straight of an amateur long drive competition.
  12. That is certainly the majority opinion, not a universal one. Golf Digest just ran a article from a 'qualified to talk about it' author advocating taking it out or tending it. He has numbers also.
  13. Its not an advantage to me. I used to leave it in on the practice green and when practicing on the course. I found I subconsciously tried to sneak the ball in the side of the hole, to avoid hitting the stick. For me, it makes the hole smaller.
  14. The group I play with seems to have settled on the guys who want it in putt first, regardless of whos away. Most will either finish or mark. Guys like me who almost always want it out then putt. I'll finish and if any of the inners want it back for the finish they can. So the flag is in, out, in. Pretty much as it was before.
  15. So is an invitation different from an exemption? What I'm wondering is, is he taking the place of a pro or just a crowd pleasing add on?
