  1. Have you ever lost a ball in the fairway?

    Almost. Just last week. The ball went under the only leaf on the fairway. After driving the cart in circles looking around, I thought of this thread, and found it under that leaf.
  2. How to Play Through Another Group

    This is a good point. I am one of those who thought if I was on the tee, and see a group in the fairway, and see a group on the green, there is no place for them to go. However, I will not let a group play through on the 18th...
  3. JB Holmes - "Undue Delay"?

    I don't have much to add, but is JB notorious for slow play, or was this a one time thing? After all, wasn't this the 18th hole, on Sunday, and that one swing potentially worth $100,000? Maybe that's why the other players didn't call him on it? It's too bad that the overall round took so long, because there WAS a lot of drama on that last hole. Normally during any round, TV coverage will just jump to another player that is ready to play, them come back to those who are slow to play. Maybe that's why I don't know who the slow players are, except for putting. I'm becoming a bone fide golf nut, thanks to the new players and this forum, so I will watch golf on TV no matter how long it take. Wasn't last season amazing?
  4. 3 Wood Usage

    Until recently, I didn't have a 3W that I could hit worth a darn, so I stayed with my 5W or 3I. Yesterday, I tried a recently acquired used TM Burner 3W. I had a slight pull left on the shots from the fairway (10 - 15 yards), but DAY-UM, did I hit them high and far enough, about 210 to 215 yards. At 62 years old, that's almost are far as my drives. lol. However, I did hit my newly acquired Burner Driver 238 yards on 18, the only hole I tried with the new driver. I guess finding the right club makes all the difference.
  5. ESPN's Max Kellermans ignorant comments

    "No games, just sports" Football, baseball, basketball. Players get paid whether they win or lose, and just for showing up. Golf, motor racing, bowling. Participants get paid based on performance. Which is the sport here?
  6. Tee It Forward

    "So, are we playing from the Wood or Hardhead tees today?" I always play the whites. I like when there is a short par 3 and the blue, white and red markers are all together. I always say "I'll play this from the Blues."
  7. John Daly

    "Hey, there's a sky mark on my driver I didn't see at address."
  8. 6+ Hour PGA Tour Rounds

    When JB took that second shot, I said out loud "all that for nothing" as the commentator was saying the exact same thing. HAHA. That finish took so long, I actually changed the channel and did not come back. By then I truly didn't care who won any more. And I still don't, so don't tell me who won (until I get home and watch the recording).
  9. Paulsons tell me "throw away your camera!"

    Ok, I threw away my camera, unfortunately it was attached to my cell phone. I'd call someone who gives a hoot, but my pockets are empty. Now what?
  10. Learn to Play Golf the Fastest

    Thanks! I see that I'm a quick learner. Now all I need are some lessons. lol.
  11. Learn to Play Golf the Fastest

    @iacis I'm new also, and want to learn, so what did OGLP do to solicit this advice?
  12. Helen Keller? I don't know about that, I heard that she burned her fingers trying to read a hot waffle iron.
  13. Shorter Backswing- No Back Pain!

    Yes, I did just that last Saturday. I was working on weight transfer, and noticed that I had shortened the backswing without thinking about it. I liked the results. A small loss of distance. but a huge gain in accuracy. I had only used the PW and 9i. Would this carry over to longer irons, or would the loss of distance be greater?
  14. New Irons

    Good advice that I didn't take. Being over 60, I was looking to lighten by bag, and liked the way my swing felt with a lighter club. The launch monitor showed the steel shafts to be about 5 yards longer and a bit more accurate, but I bought the graphite shafts anyway. Live and learn.
  15. Define The Bad Golfer

    So many different characteristics that define a bad golfer that I had never even thought about. I'm now going to put 'skill level' as one of the least important identifiers of a bad golfer, far behind the bad attitudes, egos, lack of respect for the game/course/self/others that have been mentioned here. Thanks TST for making me a better person. I mean that.
