If we view this as the aeronautical and ballistic equation golf has become (isn't Bryson's caddie a former sharpsman?) The same length irons I think I see a very large shortfall for people not built like Bryson, and a certain net loss of yardage at the top end of the bag for the average player...
Have played both ways. I prefer "course sounds," but it can be fun with music too.
It is only annoying if people roll up on the tee box so you can hear it as you're standing over your ball, or so loud you can hear it from the next fairway over. Or if its new country or pop. (Same thing.)
If it was a set I picked up on the cheap just for fun, I had some extended. Only 1/2". It's going to add a little butt-end weight. :love:
My guy would epoxy in actual shaft pieces from all the extras he had laying around, rather than "extensions." I do that to extend my putters. (y)
My former BOSS of all people. We were on a course that was an old ski resort. He flips the cart into neutral and we're going downhill about 40 MPH suddenly and the cart starts to shimmy something fierce like its gonna flip. I screamed "STOP!!!" He finally does and starts laughing maniacally.
It seems my game has been in a constant state of evolution, ability-wise, throughout my life, and my gear changed as my abilities did.
So NOTHING ever seems automatic? I have changed clubs a lot in my life, and consistency in scoring came with consistency in keeping what was working in the bag...
I like 4 hours or less for a round of golf.
What I wish people could understand is that you can stay at the 19th hole and gab all ya want if you don't get enough out on the course.
You don't HAVE to go home if it's sub-4. Have a beer and hit the putting green or something. Golf courses are...
The more I read about "pandemic golf," the less I feel I missed this year.
What kind of facility was this out of curiosity?
The course has to set SOME sort of standard in the shop, and the first tee, and the turn.
Letting people out to share clubs, etc. is generally against the...
Golfer in black socks wrote a "tell all book." Pissed people off.
Now they don't want him at their courses.
He had on black socks.
He could have had on a black hat, or no hat at all.
He was not playing there any longer. Comeuppance.
I even provided a LINK to the article that states the golfer in black socks has a book to sell and he threw people under the bus in said book.
You have to put in the effort to read the exhibits put forth to be able to tear them apart. ;)
Now, you were saying about the nice Aussies that wanted...
My point stands. You play a scramble and expect it to be in four hours, call it the "Smails Open." Not happening.
The par 3 thing is interesting. The people who are "outsiders" in the tournament get to start on the par 3's. Ever notice that?
I don't think I have EVER NOT started on the par 3...
If you'd pay attention to the details of what we are ACTUALLY discussing here, and not some personal agenda of your own, the golfer involved is Aussie, the club involved is Aussie.
You were saying, counsel? :LOL:
