    does a hazard have to be marked to be a hazard?

    Thanks for the clarification. I guess I need to read the rules book more often.

    does a hazard have to be marked to be a hazard?

    Talking about this, I have another question. At our course the hazards are all marked with markers and normally painted lines. Here in Florida, there are quite a few ponds, lakes, water hazards. We are in our rainy season right now, and these ponds, lakes, and water hazards are overflowing. If you look at the hazard markers, they could be 10 feet into the water. Does the hazard move with the water line, or if my ball falls between the water line and the hazard marker, is that now casual water where I can take a free drop?

    Your First Set of Clubs

    My first set was the old Kmart Blue Light specials. I don't have a clue what the brand was at the time. I played with them off and on about 2-3 times a year, otherwise they sat in the garage for a couple of years. I finally decided to take the game up seriously, and after working at it, and getting a bit better, I splurged on a set of Spalding Executives. Immediately improved the game. After a number of years I moved on to Tommy Armour 845's steel. Played with those about 3 years and started developing a bad case of tendinitis in my left elbow. Bought a new set of Tommy Armour 845's graphite. Played with those until my current set, Callaway X20's graphite. I'm thinking about upgrading since technology has marched on.

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    Another crazy 78 today. 41 on the front, couldn't get anything going, then started the back birdie, birdie, which started the confidence flowing. Finished the back par, par, birdie, bogey, par, par, TRIPLE!!! Big old banana slice on 18 and we couldn't find the ball. That makes me so mad, going into 15 at 3 under on the back and end up with a 2 over 37. Oh well, I'll just have to bring it back on Wednesday.

    How many rounds did you play in 2017? Avg score?

    203 posted rounds, 83.2 average, low was 71, high was 96. I could probably add another 50-60 rounds of scramble, alternate shot, practicing alone.
  6. Mine are never in the car unless I'm going to a different golf course. Otherwise, they are always on my golf cart.
