  1. I remember how dramatic the finish was when Glover won. We have another, don't we? Love this golf course.
  2. If the ball is sitting nicely on the surface of the sand, Take out one more club and make sure the club you choose has enough loft to clear the lip of the bunker. Take a slightly wider stance, ball in center. Keep the lower body quiet and make as full an upper body turn as you comfortably can. Contact the ball by just nipping it off the surface. Do not dig into the sand before or after. If the ball is down in the sand, or the lie is awkward, forget the green and take the shortest route to the fairway.
  3. Woman: Joyce Wethered, Patty Berg, Mickey Wright, Kathy Whitworth
  4. Dropping the flagstick like it's falling timber is disrespectful to the course.
  5. For a garden variety greenside chip, I use a 7-iron through lob wedge (seven clubs), depending solely on the length of the shot. Same stroke, different clubs.
  6. I'm in Anne Van Dam's corner. Brandel Chamblee says this swing might be the best in golf - Golf Digest
  7. I read a golf magazine that had 217 tips to get more distance. I did all of them and drove the front nine.
  8. You know, I always mark and tell my playing partners to wait until I do. I'll ask someone to mark if their ball is in or near my line of fire. That's just how golf is played. If I have to chip or putt toward an "unprotected" hole, they should too, and vice versa. As for what the pros, do or don't do, I could care less. Maybe the problem could go away if Rule 11.1a read: If your ball in motion hits another ball at rest on the putting green and both balls were your ball was on the putting green or within 30 feet of the putting green before your stroke, you get the general penalty (two penalty strokes).
  9. Question about the rules citation here. Rule 22-1 is in the old rule book. Rule 22 in the new rule book, according the the USGA web site, is about Foursomes competition. (Unless I'm missing something.) Is the 2019 rule book a complete re-write? If so, where is the Rule 22-1 equivalent? I'm really stumped.
  10. This whole thing is what you get when Mark Steinberg is your agent advising you. Never admit error, never be contrite, attack, attack, attack.
  11. One thing that helps me not grip too tightly is having clean grips. They get washed with warm, soapy water before every round, restoring the tacky feeling that makes me confident my hands won't slip if I hold lightly.
  12. I can't say. There are to many course variables. I might even bump-and-run with a 7-iron if the conditions are right.
