  1. Well I'm not a good golfer and have never had an eagle, but I've had 3 birdie hole outs from the sand. I'd rather of had an eagle.
  2. I was on point. But it really does show you how amazing scratch is.
  3. Anyone with a club membership and amateur status should be allowed. If they aren't making money playing golf than they're in the same boat as us. Although some are in a better boat.
  4. Maybe this is it. Golf as a sport is in a unique spot, there are times with this sport where you do something that not even a pro could do better. It just makes you feel better than you are. But as a hacker it's what makes me love this game so much.
  5. Yep. Still sad to see it, and to hear it from good golfers. I'm a shifty golfer but the people I play with are good. Relatively speaking
  6. I played ball with a kid who went on to play college ball, Saint Mary's. When I asked him how he hit curveballs so well he just told me to look at the stitches you can see the spin. Yeah, like my favorite podcaster says, there's different levels to this shit folks. No that guy didn't get to the pros.
  7. Reminds me of a joke some friends and I used to say. If I could surf, I'd best the best surfer in the world. It was always in response to people who couldn't do something but called it easy.
  8. A few years? Shit it only took me a few swings 😆
  9. I really don't think its about improvement, it's a sense that they even have the ability. Some people can't comprehend what it takes to be a pro.
  10. Fair enough, maybe it's because I'm not really around other sports anymore that I don't hear it. Still boggles my mind though.
  11. Lack of athletic ability was in quotes. I firmly believe you have to be athletic to be a good golfer. I probably should have said that golfers look like regular guys. When you look at sports like the NBA and NFL its harder to justify the I could of gone pro when you're 5'10 and a buck 70.
  12. Had a discussion with a few golfer friends of mine. They all seem to believe that they could be pro with the time, which is f***ing ridiculous. Do golfers tend to believe that the "lack of athletic ability" just means it is easy? As a jc football player I understand that there are levels to things, but none of my low level football friends thought we could make it. From my limited experience I see more club players think they could have made it, or they just think they're better than they are. For someone who played competitive, albeit a different sport, it is quite confusing. What are your thoughts?
  13. Can't remember who told me this but here it is. Playing golf is like owning a cat, it'll only give you enough love to keep you coming back for more.
  14. Thank you for the information, I doubt it'll ever happen to me but at least I'll know how to handle it if it does.
  15. So I'm up late watching the Open, can't remember which players this happened to but their balls were very close to each other in the rough. From the TV view it didn't look like either could've made a shot without contacting the other players ball. I had to go to the little boys room while this played out and don't have a DVR, what is the ruling on a situation like this? Does one of the players need to mark his ball and hit after? Just curious, haven't seen this before.
