Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Ditto. Although in the version that I remember, instead of referencing 6 3-putts, it was just: who the f**k 4-putts?

Yup. It's fun to watch. At the same time I am amazed that there are answers (or categories even) that he doesn't know hardly at all, when I actually know those. It's that or he strategically decides to give himself a mental break and let his opponents put some points on the board. But that could bac...

Re: The Grumble Thread

Shot a smooth 105, 97 ESC (a couple of 9s and a couple of 8s, and a 6 on a par 3), in a tournament, no less. :bawl I couldn't drive out of my shadow and the putting was terrible too (38 putts). Add some 4 penalty strokes, a vicious and cold wind swirling in the canyons, easily worth 2 clubs and some...

I didn't feel any wind at all so I don't know. Ball seemed to kind of knuckle ball in mid-air.
Like srogers said, it's likely you couldn't feel the wind from the ground but it was there above the trees.

Re: Random golf thoughts

I assume you are right-handed (so fades and slices both go right). I think it happens when the ball can't stay in the air because it does not have enough spin vs it speed: back spin and air flow on the dimples is what provides lift to keep the ball flying. The result is that the ball gets knocked do...

All good choices. I picked the 20ft birdie putt and the long iron approach to 15ft. But, in earnest, they are all satisfying! :claps

Re: Old Ass Clubs

A friend of mine just got an Olimar Trimetal 9 degree club from eBay for $30. It’s a club from the early 1990s. It looks like a 3 wood, with a small head even. So, it works from the deck too. He hits better, much better actually, than a modern driver, from a ball flight perspective. I tried it for s...

Re: I still cannot chip

I definitely second Doug’s thoughts on this, but pay particular attention to his #1, weight preset forward. IMHO, this is critical.

Re: 3rd Annual Frozen Balls Challenge - 2018-2019

Of course DougE and Beef are solid contenders and deserving of the win, but I’ll argue that Gobey’s 75 in 42F weather with wind and mud is a solid entry too and I’ll give him my vote. 👍

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Ditto: the courses around here are super saturated. Some of them have areas where the whole fairway width is marked GUR (due to casual water). If you are in there, you drop on the side, in the rough, where it's a little better because of the lateral slope of the fairway! I have moved up to the white...

Re: Course Staff and Rangers

At all the munis where I play, none of the rangers (or marshals) are empowered to do anything about slow play: even when there is a hole open in front of a slow group, they can never make them move and skip a hole, they can only have a talk and that is even too much. I guess the expectation from the...

There are likely millions out there who end up on their back foot who should actually try to swing like Choi. They'd probably get better results than they do slicing the ball.

Re: The New 2019 Rules

In my view, it's really simple. If the flagstick doesn't lean towards you making the space for the ball to drop too small, or the wind doesn't batter the flagstick back and forth, just leave it in: it's always an advantage in any of those other circumstances, close or far. Let me explain. From a dis...
