    USGA Seeking Feedback on Distance "Issue"

    I saw some pink tees on the course which played 2k yards shorter than the reds. If they tinker with the ball at least I can move up another set of tees lol

    USGA Seeking Feedback on Distance "Issue"

    I just completed the survey. It was more comprehensive than I thought. My take on the distance issue is, it is a moot point. Lowest score wins. It is all relative to whom you are competing against. The US Ryder Cup team didn't fare too well on a course set-up for accuracy. I don't see too many guys over powering my usual courses anyway. In fact, my usual course underwent a redesign of the tees and some bunkers to shorten up some longish par 4's. They were too long.

    A.J. Bonar's Secret

    AJ’s ‘secret’ is actually my swing thought. It helps me swing through the impact zone.

    U.S. captain for 2020 Ryder Cup

    I think Stricker. I hope he uses his catains picks to round out the squad instead of picking the most popular golfers

    I had the same experience. I did not go back.

    What do you do when your driver isn't working?

    I have a 10.5 degree and a 13 degree driver. When the former is wild I will use the latter.

    88 today, my lowest round ever.

    John Daly and the Hall of Fame

    I voted yes. His major wins and opening up the game to more freewheeling players had a positive impact. I think DL3 was the most prolific long ball hitter.
  9. My goal this year was to shoot in the 90s and with lessons, practice and playing more I have achieved that goal. Next year I expect to hit more gir.
  10. I say 18 because i am a creature of habit. Sometimes I play nine and feel like something is missing.

    Long par 3's and trouble with hybrids

    My goal is bogie on long par 3’s. Lay up,chip and 2 putt. That requires a good day chipping and lag putting for success. Alot of our courses require carrying water or waste areas so laying up is the smart play from that distance.

    Is pace of play (or slow play) a real problem?

    My playing partners and I spend most of our on course time looking for wayward shots. Straighter shots would cut 30 mins or more.

    14 rules of golf Etiquette

    My golf mentor taught me to lay my wedge on the flag. That is a great reminder to get the club and the stick.

    What tee to play from?

    I play from the senior tees, around 5500 yards. In the DelMarVa when it gets rainy and wet the courses play much longer and I like a gir every now and then. Unril I start hitting that easy 300 yd drive I will play my game and enjoy.

    Spectator loses eyesight at Ryder Cup

    At the BMW I knew when a golfball landed was when it landed. Just could not hear out there.
