    British Masters Comparisons

    Watching the British Masters, I was struck by (1) the course conditions...The PGA Tour does not play such tournament courses with gorse, bare ground, thinning grass off the fairway; (2) the weather...The pros were ready with the right clothes and just played in cold rain and wind; No bad golf weather, just bad golf clothes. How do you think pro's in the US would have done? Best, -Marv

    Could you Golf in this weather ?

    It was Crazy windy one day at work and people were actually golfing in this wind! I almost got taken out by a ball from 2 holes over ! I took a little video here it is. Be careful the video is really loud!
  3. http://golfweek.com/2017/05/18/for-2nd-straight-year-ncaa-womens-championship-to-begin-on-thursday/ I heard about this in the telecast and had to play it back again to make sure I had heard it correctly. The NCAA accommodated BYU (or any other school which has a policy of not competing on a particular day of the week for religious reasons). This year, that amounted to letting Alex White play her "Sunday" round on Thursday. Normally the four rounds are competed on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. Saturday's round was canceled due to the bad weather. The weather conditions were crazy different Thursday vs. Sunday. On Thursday, conditions were calmer, warmer, and completely dry. On Sunday, conditions were super wet, windy, and quite cold. Yet because on Thursday Alex Smith played the ball down (no lift, clean, and place), the entire field had to play the ball down on Sunday. I get the idea of being accommodating. I'm not saying this is a slippery slope, and that eventually someone's going to say "I can't compete [insert some odd claim here] because of religious reasons." But it still strikes me as a little odd. What if she had won? When they aired a brief segment about this, the woman was T8. Is there a better way to handle this sort of thing? (Note: if the "solution" had been for her to play twice on Saturday, then they could claim that's unfair as it's 36 holes in one day… plus Saturday's play was washed out and canceled. At least the current solution has her playing in the "final round" under some pressure.) That said, I can also see the case for saying "look, we're having a competition. If you want to be a part of it, you'll play Sunday. We'd rather be unfair to one person than to 120+ others by letting you compete on a different day, with better weather and no fellow competitors playing with you, etc." I'm not sure that's the side I come down on, even, but I could see that being a perfectly legitimate side, too. What do y'all think? (I put this in Rules for now, but could move it… I'm not sure what shape the discussion will take.)

    Where do you draw the line? WINTER IS COMING

    G'morning all! Its a chilly-ish morning here in Chicago which made me want to ask this to you all: where do you personally draw the line to play given the weather and conditions? I know many people who put away the clubs when it drops below 60 degrees and also know a few who will play until a foot of snow is on the ground (even then I'm sure they'll try to somehow). With the colder and wetter conditions and as winter begins to take over, do you all also continue your play/practice indoors at ranges or simulators? I personally do not play below about 40 degrees with a wind chill. It begins to feel more like an episode of survival than a round of golf but that's just me being weak. I'm also brand new to this site so I look forward to communicating with a lot of new people! Happy Sunday!
