  1. That was a great read, I agree Bubba is out. Time to turn the page.
  2. Holmes and Zack Johnson in better ball...very solid. Holmes makes 7 or 8 birdies, has handful of blow ups, Johnson 13 of 14 fairways. Holmes doesn't play any alternate shot.
  3. maybe it is a local thing but virtually every ball I stumble into at my club is marked. I would say it is rare to very unusual to find a ball that isn't marked.
  4. I know what ball I am playing and I know how I marked it...if I am stupid enough to not look at it (which I have done) I guess it is on me. Member guest tie match on 5th hole (9 holes maches for 10 points) I played my partners ball out of the face of a bunker with terrible lie because he was sure he had carried the bunked and I wasn't sure. As turned out I had carried it and was 40 yards up in the fairway, of course since I didn't check I was out of the hole, my ball was dead and he had to play his ball from the shit...lesson learned!
  5. 78 yards is in interesting number...56 most of the time, could be a 52 or 60 depending on conditions, actually seldom will be a 60 unless long is jail.
  6. Big golf destinations!! Next Golf trip to Turkey I am going to take my driver on the plane with me and hope the rest of the bag shows up...I can play with 13 rentals (from a course in Turkey) no problem as long as I have my driver...oh jeez my head hurts just typing these words!
  7. I just don't understand the drama of this thread. chances are very good if you check the bags the your clubs will be there when you land, if they aren't there when you land they will find you quickly...sure it is possible they get lost - it is also possible the plane crashes or that you die on the flight...I mean really this is what you stress about while traveling?
  8. if I have no doubles I am going to be right about 80 every time...so based on that I think they are the same for me...I don't make a lot of birdies so the double just kills me.
  9. it is the 10 to 15 yard chip off a tight lie...I have no problem with the rough or even the fringe cut. it is mental and physical. at times when I am practicing it is no problem but if I don't get to the range for a week or two the first thing to go is that chip. I am resolved to putt from longer then I prefer and it actually isn't terrible for me but when there is bunker involved or I am forced to chip over the corner of rough short of the green...sigh
  10. RNC

    if what you claim is true you will obviously vote for Trump, that should be obvious to you...
  11. there is a drivable par 4 at kings north, it has a tiny pot bunker about 5' round maybe...but it is also about 5' deep. it is dead unless you are in the exact middle of the bunker.
  12. the guys are my club do a pretty good job of cleaning up after themselves, if you are playing the same course week after week or multiple times a week it is incredibly stupid not to. That being said when I go to public courses even most of the high end ones there seem to countless full blown holes from many people. I think it is just a matter of it you care or not and if people think it will have any impact or them in the future or not. Fairway divots are kind of the same story.
  13. the 15th at Philly Cricket is a classic example of this as well. it was redone during the renovation back to the original layout....great hole if you don't mind a kick in the nuts at the back part of the round!!
  14. In the Tampa area the best place I know if is Olde Memorial. it is golfers golf club, it is not cheap and based on your comments above you may not fit in but if you are really looking for a great golf club that is your spot.
  15. pretty much as stock 52 with a touch of choke.
