  1. I will never play against you, so you have no fear. I don’t improve my lie, I take my strokes, where necessary, to the best of my knowledge. I don’t ground my club in sand traps or hazards. I admit that I didn’t know all my options on Yellow and Red stakes until @lihu posted a link. It was a very good explanation. I joined this forum to learn about my game and how to play the game better. Thank you for taking the time to reply. I look forward to the 2019 changes, whatever they may be.
  2. Thanks again. I know that something is coming. With all the pressure to get people on the course and off the course, as quickly as possible, anything will help. My main complaint is that the rules can be so intimidating, that the high handicapper, who keep many golf courses financially viable, are being forced out of the game. No one wants to break the rules .... Btw I play by the rules.
  3. Thank you, but I received a reply from someone who clarified the issue. I don’t cheat at anything but I complain about a lot :)
  4. Thanks. Watched the video and saved it to my Favorites. I think I finally get the difference. For sure. I don’t actually find OB that often since I am so conservative with play. Usually it is due to not knowing it is there. I hate it when that happens :) Thanks for the reply.
  5. Thanks for the input. I suppose re hitting from your existing spot might end in a better result, considering how ugly the lies around OB can be. The likelihood of me playing in any tournament, against anyone, is exceedingly remote. Very sorry if you were insulted.
  6. Re Yellow stakes...so why 2 colours. Re White stakes...so why lose the distance. Btw I have yet to read an explanation of Yellow stakes that I can understand. :)
  7. Searched for info on this...nothing showed up. So who needs yellow, red and white stakes. What the heck is a yellow stake anyway? New rules: 1) Lose a ball-lose a stroke. Drop where ball “exits” the course. 2) Move a ball-lose a stroke. There. Isn’t that easier....and faster! Enjoy
  8. I am a little late to the party but I have a question. In the summary at the beginning of the thread there was an item that stated this new system will “allow golfers to post both competitive and recreational rounds.” What is the difference between competitive and recreational rounds?
  9. I have attached 2 pics of a golf grip. One of these looks like it would result in toe down contact. These are not me. They are just some stock pics of grips. Could I be doing this at set up or impact?
  10. You’re welcome ..... :)
  11. I have seen the backwards wedge used but never tried. Will check it out. Thanks!
  12. I searched for this and found no hits. So...I have been known to use the backside of a long iron when my ball is up against a tree. It works for me (usually) and I will get about 30 yards out of it. I am a righty. Is this legal?
  13. So...should I actually be hitting balls or just practice swinging.???
  14. I did some research on Ping’s colour system. Found the attached chart. My wrist to floor measurement is 35 inches. Does this mean that I should get my clubs adjusted to Silver? I will follow up with swing videos if that will help. I assume you want videos from the back?
  15. Ping G15 black dot. Thanks for helping out.
