Re: The New 2019 Rules

Another one I didn't include, mostly because it is only a "recommendation" is the 40-second time span in which to hit the ball. I foresee that one getting ugly on a busy golf course. I wouldn't be surprised if guys like Beef start carrying stopwatches and air horns in their bags. I picture him stand...

I think intentionally testing a bunker or hazard should have been sacred....
You still can't touch the ground or test the sand in a bunker, but you now can in a designated penalty area (no longer called water hazards).

Re: The New 2019 Rules

I agree with the part about making the game easier, particularly in some cases. However I disagree that they aren't easier to understand---or at least, will be---once you get more used to them. Some things are different than they were. Yes, you have to learn the new rules, which initially may seem l...

Re: The New 2019 Rules

Also, is it possible the PGA tour implements a local rule not allowing you to leave it in when you are on the green (I don't know if this is even possible). Though the rule is not technically written to allow for local rules, as, say for instance, the alternative to stroke and distance for lost bal...

Re: The New 2019 Rules

You didn't allow voting for my favorite new rule which is handling of OB/Lost ball by dropping in fairway with penalty. Yes, you are right, I did not include this rule.....but I meant to. Somehow I forgot it. It should have been included. I think it's a good way to satisfy the crowd on a busy golf ...

The New 2019 Rules

Though the above selections are just the tip of the iceberg as far as new rules changes go this time around, many of these are likely to affect us regularly. There are some I really like and others I don't care about one way or another. I like the new drop from knee height change. Much easier to con...

Re: What's in your bag?

Duke, I had already checked out the CBX, but only a quick pass. I got the impression it wasn't real forgiving and moved on. However, I have seen some more recent reviews by guys on the Hacker's Paradise who thought the EX10 was absolutely phenomenal last year, but have since agreed that the only thi...

Re: What's in your bag?

Another long post, but c'mon, it IS a forum, right? Grab a cup of coffee... Okay, now I have gone down the rabbit hole. It started with the idea that the Tour Edge Exotics EX10/Beta might be an alternative consideration to the new Titleist TS fairways just released, at half the price. Since Tour Edg...

Only real bright spots on US team: Justin Thomas & Web Simpson I suppose I can take some solace in the fact that they are both Titleist Tour Staff players. As is Spieth, but he was no Justin or Web this RC. And why wasn't Spie...

Re: 2018 Fall Support Group

Between the extreme wetness, 6 days of rain (Sunday to Friday am), physical issues (neck, shoulders, back), mental depression due to seasonal disorder, all resulting in limited interest at the moment, I have not played golf in a week. I think that's the longest layoff of the season for me. Was going...

Re: Mickey D's Portugese Style

Interesting. McDonald's persona does not seem to fit the architecturally-superior building within which it sits.

Re: What's in your bag?

I know that there is at least one Titleist tour pro who plays FWs and Hybrids from an earlier generation but covers them with the latest Titleist headcovers. There are a helluva lot more than just one or two Titleist Tour pros who use the most recent headcovers on older equipment. It is a common pr...

2018 Fall Support Group

So, I guess summer is officially over. Time to start the 2018 fall support group. Summer was okay, I suppose. I had a decent one, golf-wise. Lots of rain and wet conditions hurt my distance over the period, but overall, I played respectable golf most days. I have been away from the forums the last f...
