  4. I agree with iacas on this one. There was a course in my area (5880 yards from the normal tees) that had par 3s at 130,118,149, and 165 yards in length...until the beast at 16 which was listed as 195 (except the normal tees were moved to the back tees at 215 yards). It also featured trees on both sides with a slope on the right that even further penalized the unfortunate hacker. After they renovated the back nine, it morphed into a dogleg par 4 by clearing out the woods behind the green. It's helped pace of play enormously. On the other hand, there is a city course that plays less than
  5. I was known as "Ryebread" during my high-school golf years. No real significance, my coach was just playing on my first name. A buddy of mine got "Stumpy" that year because he had a tendency to hit his putts fat.

  8. When I was young, my dad would go out every Sunday morning to play with my uncle and a rotating duo to round out a foursome. My uncle made a pretty impressive-looking trophy and they would all play net golf. Lowest net won the trophy, defending champ got to come back next week, and if you forgot to bring it, you were out of the running for that round. He usually got home around noon and I would always ask him who won (usually, not him) in addition to listening to his stories. Fast-forward a couple years, when I turned 13. I decided that I could probably muster enough strength to move th
  9. I know coaches actively recruit (my coach stalked out the Maryland State Championships), but it never hurts to give coaches a call or filling out an academic interest form. Since you are still a sophomore, my advice is to keep doing what you are doing now (since you can shoot around even par, you are obviously doing a good number of things right). If your grades are good and your game follows, there's no doubt that a team will pick you up. Also, remember that you'll have to work twice as hard when it comes to schoolwork. Depending on your choice of major, it can be pretty demanding. I don't me
  10. I played for three years at Stevenson University in Baltimore, Maryland. It's a Division III program (conference: Capital Athletic Conference), but there are some pretty good players. Usually, I was just one of the utility guys that went to minor tournaments or filled in with guys who couldn't make it due to class. We usually played a bunch of southern Pennsylvania courses like Hershey C.C., Links at Gettysburg, etc... The program was in its infancy when I was a freshman so I walked on and had the chance to play right from the start. I was slowly phased out when better players started s
  11. I played in a scramble a few weeks ago where the low gross was 51 (par 72). They had a strange set of rules for this tournament. There were 3 sets of tees (back tees, regulars, and ladies) and each team got to tee off from each set of tees 6 times (I think we had a par 5 from the ladies' tees that measured 330). There were no mulligans, but if you hit your shot into one of five spray-painted shamrocks, it counted as being holed. Also, I say gross because at the end of the round, they took 30% of the average of your team's handicap and subtracted. My team's 63 put us around 13th out of 25 net a
  12. There have been a number of oddities during my golfing career. The one that stands out the most where I was hitting a shot happened last year. I pushed my 2nd shot on a par 5 to the right on the opposite hole. About 50 yards in front of me, there was a guy mowing the grass in line with the hole. I tell him to move since he's in my way and only moves about five feet to the right. I hesitate, knowing it's not nearly enough, but he just stands there looking at me holding his ground. I end up hitting a screamer no more than 10 feet off the ground, forcing him to hit the deck. As for playing
  13. I am a big fan of the Bridgestone e6's. The noticeable difference in ball flight surprised me. I tried them out one day and managed to turn a slump around. Since I can't go very long without testing something new, I picked up a pack of Diablo Tours (I was split between those and the new Titleist Velocities) but haven't been out to give them a field test yet.
