    Rules question: team match play

    Curious how THPers would rule on the following situation. I'm playing in a team match play event at our club. We scheduled the match and I looked up our opponents on GHIN.com (we didn't know either guy). GHIN.com says their indexes are 7.0 and 9.0 the night before our match. Our side is 2.1...

    As we all know, cameras are everywhere. According to some outlets, the average Londoner is captured on CCTV about 300 times per day. The average for Americans, in major urban areas, is about 75 times per day. Is golf one of the next frontiers? One of the guys in yesterday's group...

    Do you use a valuables pouch or a pocket in your golf bag?

    The TV cameras followed Henrik Stenson for a few minutes after he finished Saturday's round at the Scandinavian Invitational. He reached into one of his bag pockets, pulled out a valuables pouch, and headed for the scoring table. Do you use a valuables pouch, a pocket in your golf bag, or...

    How much do you talk to your match play opponent?

    Match play is my favorite game. Our group plays it all the time and I also entered several singles and doubles tournaments this summer. I subbed on a league team last night and it got me thinking about how people approach their opponent. I'm typically a chatty guy and genuinely enjoy meeting...

    Suncoast Golf Trail (Bradenton, Port Charlotte, Sarasota, and Venice)

    Does anyone have a Suncoast Golf Trail card or are you familiar with the program (suncoastgolftrail.com)? I'm planning to spend time in North Port this winter and thought about buying the card. The primary benefit is a $10 discount on most of the courses. The price is only $50 so it wouldn't...

    Review: Aldila staff bag and travel log

    If you can’t be good, then you should look good. I embrace this mentality as a tongue-in-cheek expression about looking the part. If you want to look like a ‘golfer’, then you need a staff bag. Please note I didn’t say you have to be a good golfer to have a staff bag. I was extremely...

    Golf streak – do you have one?

    Do you have a golf streak going? If so, do you own the streak or does it own you? In March 2012, I started a consecutive month streak. This isn’t a challenge for southern golfers but it’s a different story if you live in the north where courses usually close in November and open in April. My...
