  1. I agree with @David in FL, don't change your methods they just need to play better. Assuming you are playing the same course each week, you could develop any formula your heart desires but the net result won't change. As long as the formula is applied to everyone, stroke adjustments will be uniform, and you will still have the complainers.
  2. Check out the Hamilton County courses... Vineyard, Mill Course, Sharon woods are all great. The county courses are better than most of the CRC courses in my opinion. In Northern Kentucky , Lassing Pointe is a good one. If you are up for small competition look into the Ohio Valley Golf Association. Single day, flighted tournaments at a different course each week within the region. I play with this group and everyone is great and laid back, its a fun time. If nothing else, take a look at the website and tournament list, it will give you an idea of the courses in the area.
  3. Always interested in an outing. Deer Ridge is 2.5 hrs from me, not very attractive for a week night. At that distance, a couple rounds over a weekend works better. I'm not available 7/22 but will keep it in mind if anything changes.
  4. I agree it's goal tending by the letter of the rule. At full speed though that's a tough call and Lebron will almost always get the benefit of the doubt. I wouldn't say Indiana should have won, since Lebron's 3 still wins the game if goal tending is called. It could have changed the Cavs last play call though. Rub of the green... This is not as bad as the missed shot clock violation at the end the Celtics game a couple nights ago.
  5. Loose impediment on the green can be moved without penalty, and the shot was from off the green so hitting the flagstick is no issue. Move the twig, if the ball falls in its holed.
  6. Saturday, August 19 (1pm, Dennison Golf Club) @iacas @georgep @saevel25 @klineka @vasaribm your name please Sunday, August 20 (9:30am, Northstar Golf Club) @iacas @georgep @saevel25 @vasaribm add your name @Jeremie Boop (possible)
  7. Stableford works for me...its fun and easy to understand. I haven't played many other formats to give a good suggestion, but honestly, net stroke play is fine too. Keep it super simple since we will be a small group.
  8. I will plan on a small warm up, but its not critical. @georgep any recommendations on where to stay Saturday night? Thanks for setting this up!
  9. Added to the calendar @georgep @iacas @saevel25 @vasaribm
  10. I can't speak to the flip covers but I have a BAK revolver (hard shell roll up) cover on my Tacoma. Works well, no leaks into the bed, I would definitely buy it again. I chose roll up over a flip, mainly because I didn't like that the rear window was blocked with the flip cover fully open. The roll up cover is no higher than the rear head rest when open.
  11. I use a mash-up of companies. Under Armour storm pants, Ping short sleeve pull over, Sun Mountain long sleeve jacket. The Ping jacket is more water resistant than water proof but has worked well. I much prefer short sleeve jackets if the temp allows, I seem to get too bound up in long sleeve jackets. If I was buying new gear, I would lean towards the Rainflex or Tour Series.
  12. Well done! Good luck at the national championship.
  13. I play Wishon wedges and driver. Each club was purchased through a local fitter and I went through a two separate fittings; one each for the wedge set and driver. Mainly because they were purchased months apart, but I'm really happy with them and have no issues with quality or performance.
  14. The Roebling Bridge here in Cincinnati was the unofficial test run for the Brooklyn Bridge; note their similarity. I've been a part of the design team for 2 cable stayed structures. Pomeroy-Mason and Ironton-Russell, both over the Ohio River, and both using a similar design has the Cooper River shown earlier. Long span bridge design is by nature "cutting edge", but bridge owners do not like to be cutting edge for fear of maintenance problems. A perfect example is the East section of the Bay Bridge. The self anchoring design is a first in the US and the designers and contractors are learning as they go and the state is paying the price for the experiment. The artistic, curved structures are more common in Europe and Asia because of looser building codes, construction practices, and willingness to try newer materials like carbon fiber. Not to mention they are a b*tch to design. Ohio is doing a study on carbon fiber prestressing strands vs steel strands, unfortunately the cost for carbon fiber is currently 4X that of steel. State DOT's do not have room in their funding to increase costs by 4, so we tend to stick with what is known to work.
  15. Great seeing everyone this weekend, I had a blast as always. Hope everyone made it home without issue. Thanks @Rob Thompson for hosting and @iacas for organizing. Looking forward to the next one.

  17. The abnormal ground conditions rule is full of OR statements; i.e. ball OR stance OR line of play not necessarily all 3 together. If he was seeking relief for the ball or line of play, why does it matter where he stands. If he was asking for relief for his stance then, I would agree he did not take the proper relief, but as for relief for the lie of the ball, it seems to me he did so fully. Yes, this is along the lines of what I was trying to say.
