  1. No. Since it's no club, it doesn't count as one... greetings michi
  2. which would be a breach of the rules To the OP, you buddy is right. Even more so, he's not allowed to do it, he MUST do it, according to the rules! see 25-3b: 25-3 . Wrong Putting Green a . Interference Interference by a wrong putting green occurs when a ball is on the wrong putting green . Interference to a player’s stance or the area of his intended swing is not, of itself, interference under this Rule. b . Relief If a player’s ball lies on a wrong putting green , he must not p
  3. That's why the USGA and R&A; are testing the COR in the lab and not with a player. The same could be done with a swing robot and a trackman. You wouldn't even have to leave the lab for this, the robot hitting into a net with a standardize club using trackman like in fitting centers would be enough. That would be standardized and repeatable - just what is needed for an scientific experiment.
  4. IIRC, tennis had that same problem some years ago. Too much service speed, unreturnable. They didn't try to change the rackets - as a lot of people say, the industry would go havoc - but they changed the size of the balls! Bigger ball - slower speed. Now, it's really fun again to watch the best players in the world, although rackets and athleticism of the players have improved! Still, good servers get their advantage! I think, the best way to get old courses back into a seaons rotation would be to limit the balls for the pros. Today, every company makes pro-only equipmen
  5. My wife and I started golf together (she then was my girlfriend). Since then we nearly played together most of the time, it was a chance spending time together and having fun (outside the bedroom ;)). We often played matchplay against each other, and more than once I lost fair and square. Our newborn is now 8 weeks old, and my wife gave up her club membership for this year, since she won't be able to golf much. Since I plan to spend much time with my girls, I won't golf that much either, but more than her. Hopefully we can get our daughter into golf, too, if she likes it.
  6. My wife and I will sometimes play a round, where you have to tell you playing partner before every shot, what you are up to, and what you are thinking. i.e. "It's 64yds to the pin with a lot of green to work with, the wind is blowing right to left. The ball doesn't lie perfectly, so I'll rather chip it up with a i7 than trying to fly it with the LW, risking a thin shot over the green. I want the ball to travel just about 10-12 yds and then roll up to the green and the hole. My landing point is this browned out piece of grass there in front of us. Although the wind is blowing
  7. I keep the following stats on my scorecard (using free columns): total shots (of course) fairway hit: - "x" when hit and at least 80% of my regular distance - L/R for miss left/right, o if completely OOB number of penalty shots shortgame shots (if inside 50yds): - "c" for chip - "p" for pitch shot - "b" for bunker shot putting: - number of putts - initial putting length - if missed, where and how - length "S"hort or "Long", 0 if perfect length - side L/R and if it's above or below the hole sounds much, but is q
  8. aaaand it makes a great headcover holder :) (at 1:55) I use them too, and it's true, it really helps :D greetings michi
  9. Thx Eric, great post! My range sessions usually go this way (TGM terms used): I spend at least 30-40 minutes doing only Basic and Aquired Motion, concentrating on the impact zone. That's also some sort of warmup to me. After that 15-20 minutes go into release variations (horizontal, angled, vertical), still doing it on Basic and Aquired Motion swings. After some rest, and according how things worked out before, I'm concentrating on longer swings (still no full swings) and my position in the follow through. If the things before weren't that good, I try to stay there, just int

  11. Full ACK! I also think, you have to distiguish between US-handicaps and European handicaps. According to Iville's posted table, with my hcp of 17.3 I would be within the best 67% in the US. Here in Austria, I'm inside the top 13.000 of 100.000 golfers, which would be 13%. That's a huuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuge difference... greetings michi
  12. ATTENTION: LONG POST! I was thinking quite some time about posting something to this thread, but now I decided to do it. Short Version: @Travis: GO FOR IT! If you have the financial means to give it a try, and don't bring other people (i.e. a family) into trouble, do it!!! Don't listen to the nay-sayers, because they cannot understand, how something is possible, that they didn't manage to do. Long Version: Some background story first. During my childhood (35 years ago) I grew up like a regular boy, doing all kinds of sports, most of it, playing a lot of
  13. Quote: 1.) Get fitted for my new KZG clubs ASAP 2.) Play at least 5-6 tournaments through the year 3.) According to "2.", improve my hcp
  14. Get better in the scoring scone. In the my rounds of 90 I used to have about 50 shots inside 50 meters. So: 1. I will focus in putting and shortgame during the winter. 2. I hope, this will help me break 80 during next season. greetings michi
  15. Thx for the tips about the stores. I forgot to add "European" to online store.. (tristan, Austria != Australia *G*). Buying from the US would be too expensive considering shipping and customs... greetings michi
