  1. Well I finally did it. I've just played 3 days in a row, working on playing a smarter game, and it paid off. Monday: 100. Tuesday: 102. Today: 97. Even within my game today I had a few blow up holes, and a lost ball, so I feel like 90 isn't too far off now. Gonna keep pushing for it because it feels great seeing my numbers dropping so drastically.
  2. I had looked at that too but ruled it out because the official applied a one stroke penalty, the penalty for striking a moving ball is 2 strokes.
  3. I would assume he would have put it under rule 19-2: "If a player’s ball is accidentally deflected or stopped by himself, his partner or either of their caddies or equipment, the player incurs a penalty of one stroke." Hitting it while it was moving would count as a deflection probably? But does it count as a deflection if you don't change the path of the ball? I don't know.
  4. Been struggling with getting into the low 100's for a while now. Just bought my first driver, a Nike Sumo2 I picked up for $45 (~25USD), took it to the range and immediately started hitting the straightest, furthest shots I've ever played. Hopefully when I hit the course next week the fairways will be found and the numbers will drop.
  5. For me it's a 3/4 swing SW if I want it to land soft or a controlled PW if I want it to run on (which I'm not too good at so I normally opt for the SW)
  6. Definitely a good read, and it makes me feel less guilty for hitting the driving range much more often than the practice green.
  7. Where did that number come from? I always assumed you should practice much more on putting than everything else because your putter accounts for 30-50% of your shots.
  8. I would've liked to see Lydia bring home the gold for New Zealand but Inbee destroyed out there. Well deserved win.
  9. There is, but it's not an insult just because I intend it to be one. I could call you a table, meaning it to be offensive, but unless you find it offensive then it's not an insult. The same goes the other way. Throughout my childhood I used the word f****t a lot (everybody at school did, I didn't know any better), and though I never hated gay people or intended to harm them through my use of said word, that doesn't mean I never offended anyone by using it.
  10. I don't think the intent behind a word can deem whether or not it is offensive.
  11. For people in some social circles there is no such thing as someone's preferred pronouns being obvious. Count yourself lucky that you don't have to specify with everyone you talk to.
  12. Kinda my point. Why does it matter to you if someone wants to be referred to as one thing or another?
  13. I completely agree. This particular case isn't really moving towards being more PC, rather towards a misunderstanding of some pretty basic linguistics. My point wasn't that we should remove these sort of words, or enact rules that stop us from using them. I was meaning on a more personal level. Example: I have a transgender friend who has told me that she doesn't want me to use phrases like "hey man" or "hey guys" etc, because they make her feel uncomfortable. So I respect her wishes and try not to use these phrases around her (even though I regularly use these words when talking to other female friends who don't mind it). I don't care whether or not it actually offends her, because it's not a difficult thing for me to do, and it doesn't really matter when there are other words I can use.
  14. I have no idea why anyone would be opposed to a more PC society. Like, if you are given the opportunity to offend someone or not to offend them, why would you want to offend them? The second someone tells me not to use a word around them, I try my best to respect their wishes. It doesn't affect me in any way whatsoever apart from being a bit more considerate.
  15. I'm not in any position to offer swing advice, but I think if you have one major problem then the solution may be as simple as going to a coach to get an external view or even just filming yourself if you haven't tried that. Sometimes what it feels like you're doing and what you're actually doing are two completely different things.
