    Poll: Lost Ball, What Do You Do?

    If I can't find it I either a) play it as if it were a lateral if it were woods or b) drop a ball where I thought it went, take my penalty stroke, and move on. No point in holding up the foursome behind you on what is already probably a really long day.

    If you had the money/land

    It's one of my life goals to retire early with 500+ acres in the middle of nowhere, Kentucky. And I'd put up a nine hole course (18 if finances allow). Nothing too drastically expensive, but a local track with good placement of sand traps and reasonably fast greens. I'd say tees from 2,500 to 3,500 yards (red, white and blue). Lots of risk-reward situations but nothing completely impossible or unreasonable. I'd want to it be tough but fair. Oh, did I mention a set of MP-67's, 2-PW, with Project Rifle X 6.0 shafts?

    Has your opinion changed

    1) Yes. The layout is difficult but not impossible - a winning score of -1 and the player's aren't complaining too much. An excellent balance. And it's the US Open. Our Open. And I like the 18 hole playoff much, much more than any of the other tournaments. 2) I wanted to see Rocco win, but to watch Tiger win with a busted knee is pretty impressive, regardless of whether you like the guy or not. 3) Pelz - Can't say as much about him as I'd like. He's got some good research into the short game though. 4) Harmon - Playing it safe isn't Phil's game. He flies by the seat of his pants and to make him hit 3 wood or less off every tee and play it safe will result in a 78 or higher every time. 5) With Tiger out for the rest of the season it'll give someone in the rest of the field an excellent opportunity to step up to the plate. There's the British and than the PGA later this year, if someone takes those up then we could have a serious challenge in 2009. I'd certainly like to see it. "Tiger, tiger, tiger." is getting old fast.

    Keeping clubs cool in a car in the summer?

    I also ditto that. Besides, that's an extra 50 pounds you're not hauling around on a daily basis, which saves gas.

    one liners you've heard

    Never up, never in. (That also applies to another fact of life...)

    Grand Theft Auto

    I voted Vice City Stories, but I have a better idea. Buy a case of beer.

    Who was more redicilous in this situation?

    I'm jumping in on this a bit late, but here goes. I think they were in the wrong at first, especially by playing slowly and not having the decent etiquette to let the faster player through (skill is irrelevant--I've seen bad slow golfers and good slow golfers, and vice versa). You were in the wrong to simply launch one over their heads - did you ask them if you could play through? If they refused then I say fire away, because they're just being complete jerks. (That statement is only assuming that the course has a pussified ranger who's more like a public relations guy. Or no ranger at all.) I have no sympathy for someone who's deliberately playing slow and refuses to let anyone through out of sheer arrogance. I don't think you'd be responsible even if you hit him, unless it was clear you did it intentionally. When a guy gets on the golf course he takes the risk of getting hit by a ball into his own hands. And it would have been your word against his-- not that I advise doing this! but he'd have a hard time saying you hit him intentionally. Especially on a golf course, where golf balls are flying all over the place...

    Favorite type of shot!

    I selected "Driving" and "Long irons" because my favorite shot (read: one I screw up the least on) is a 2 iron off the tee, especially on a tight driving hole when a longer club could go God knows where into some serious trouble. The driver itself, while there's nothing quite like hitting a ball 300+ down the middle with a little draw, there's also nothing quite like ruining your entire day, score-wise, before you even get a ball in play. And I don't trust the 2 iron off the grass. Just off the tee for me.

    SoloRider - Single person golf cart

    I'd love it if a course got everybody's butt in a cart. As in, a cart for every golfer. Consider this: After getting the tee time, you wait 20-30 minutes for your turn to tee off with three or four groups ahead. You and I are in a cart, and two of our buddies are in another. You pull-hook one about 310 down the left, and I hit a weak slice about 200 into the garbage on the right. (Or vice-versa.) Meanwhile, the other two guys in our foursome have done the same thing. So all day long we're driving zigzags across the entire course chasing down each other's golf balls, and in the time it takes to do that we've lost track of where we hit the others, ready golf is completely abandoned, and it becomes a 5+ hour round. I'd say four decent players could get around in the course in three hours or less, even while taking their time. Increasing the number of golfers on the course (by speeding up play!) would easily offset the increased fuel cost and maintenance a golf course would incur by putting more carts out there.

    Who do you hate the most on tour?

    I wouldn't say "hate" but Tiger's caddy has a serious attitude problem. In fact, so does Tiger. As someone said before golf is about entertainment, not letting out a string of words that would make even me proud while on camera (he leads the tour in fines for dropping the F-bomb on live TV). Everyone gets mad at themselves about the game and we all have the same problem, but keep a lid on it. After all you're on national TV.

    What does your CLOTHING say about you?

    I don't care what I wear. As long as it isn't too constricting. Most often it's just a t-shirt with shorts, jeans and a wind breaker if it's cold outside. In other words, the same way the $20 hack weekend golfer looks like. I've found that nine out of ten guys who look really good, professionally dressed with shiny new clubs and balls can't golf worth a ****. They'll act like a big shot, try to give me all sorts of pointers and stuff, then challenge me to a bet, and I'll make a lot of money. I don't look good on paper but I'd probably take down 95 out of 100 people who play out there without a struggle. (I hope I didn't sound cocky that way...heh... but it's sadly true. And I'm not even good.)

    Ever had one of those holes 10 on a par 4 !!!

    I get one of those holes every so often, especially if I'm cruising right along with a string of pars. It'll often happen so quickly that I don't even have a chance to even go into damage limitation. Usually where I play, that means shanking a ball into the woods, or a huge slice (or duck-hook) off the tee which goes OB or hopelessly gone in the woods. Thing is, once I'm racking up a big number, my heart's no longer in for the hole. I just want to get out of there, since it's going to be an ESC 7 anyway. (This is a major problem I have, because bad play then spills over to the next hole, and the next, until my day's ruined.)
