  1. Matt Parziale has been celebrated a bit recently as an amateur… when really, the guy is a former (and failed, you could say) pro golfer who got his amateur status back. Many in golf feel that these "lapsed pros" shouldn't be able to get their amateur status back, or if they should, they should have to wait longer than a year or so. I don't really care too much myself, but I care enough to start the topic, and to discuss it. What do you think the rules for regaining your amateur status back should be? How long - or how much success - at being a pro should make you ineligible? Whe
  2. PGA Tour Working On Program to Provide Access For College Stars | Golf Channel The PGA Tour might soon have a new feeder system – college golf. Two quotes stand out to me. … and… Making the leap from college to the pros often happens at a terrible time of year. Either you bail on your team mid-way through the season (in November or thereabouts), or you are stuck trying to make it as a pro with status on no Tour after the NCAA tournament in May.
  3. Section 3-2 of the Rules of Amateur Status says: 3-2. Prize Limits a. General An amateur golfer must not accept a prize (other than a symbolic prize) or prize voucher of retail value in excess of $750 or the equivalent, or such a lesser figure as may be decided by the Governing Body. This limit applies to the total prizes or prize vouchers received by an amateur golfer in any one competition or series of competitions. Exception: Hole-in-one prizes - see Rule 3-2b. Note 1: The prize limits apply to any form of golf competition, whether on a golf
  4. Hi there everyone, Hopefully, it is ok to post this here. If not, please let me know. I am looking for some feedback on a fun golf side project called Golf World Rankings. Basically, it is a no frills and zero red tape way of getting a fun world ranking from every round of golf you have, whether in an official competition or just socially. The idea is to give everyone something to play for, aim for and measure against. Been something I thought about for years but finally got the courage to create it and put it out in the wild :) If you don't mind taking a look and letting me know yo
  5. Ladies and gentlemen, I am new to both this site, and game of golf as I only picked up a club for the first time 6 and a half months ago. I believe I belong to a small group of gifted golfers, as I have a 4 handicap and am regularly just barely off of par on a par 72 course. (Yes I understand the claim I just made. No I am not a troll.) my goal is scratch or under by the 10 month mark, as it's currently below zero where I live which makes it difficult to get out and continue my progress. I am an extremely long ball hitter (at 6'5" 260 pounds and 24 years old) and regularly hit 300+ on my
  6. On Saturday morning, 156 players teed off in the first-round of 36-hole stroke-play qualifying portion of the US Senior Amateur in St. Louis. The second round is under way today, with the low 64 players going into match play Monday. OWCC is playing to a 7,061 yard, Par 71. The players had a Thursday practice round, but then lost Friday on-course play to day-long heavy rains. The course was damp Saturday, but had drained really well and had no puddling - just damp rough in a lot of places, especially tracts under the trees. At end of play Saturday, Joe Lewis of Sewell, NJ and Randal L
  7. I've been Playing Golf for: 11 months My current handicap index or average score is: 101 My typical ball flight is: High Fade The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: High Fade, Fat Shots, Shanks Videos: http://www.hudl.com/technique/video/view/noMyANFm?e=5552281 Hey all. This is an afterthought, so I don't have a face-on view of the swing yet. The below swing is pretty ugly, so beware. On this particular day, I felt as if I was rushing my hands to impact'. There are days where I have solid contact and have a high ball flight, with a slight (2-5 yd)
  8. "Angular accuracy" just means this: the measurement, in degrees, between the intended target and where your ball came to rest. If you hit your tee shot 250 yards to a 40-yard wide fairway, just missing the fairway after aiming at the center is an error of about 4.6°. On a 150-yard approach shot to a 25-yard wide green, putting the ball in the fringe is a 4.8° error if you were aiming at the center of the flag.
