  1. Is it *really* a 3 piece ball?
  2. Have fun. Playing that course is like playing almost any tree lined course in new england. Small greens. The average green size is 3,700 sq feet at HT. Where the more average green size for most courses on tour is around 6,600 sq feet. (Some 6400sq feet at Augusta avg) HT requires precision to navigate around strategically planted/placed mossy trees, to only arrive at some of the smallest greens on tour, which is why many tour pros skip this event (using the masters as an excuse I feel... going from greens that are 2x the size to small, missing greens will skew their stats....) I'm there every Oct for a few weeks.
  3. Boeing has been involved with the tournament since 2011 on a 10 year contract which ends this year.
  4. Yeah, no thanks. Don't need 'em. My wife says otherwise, "get the bright ones! I'll go through them!" I turned around, opened a cabinet... "Oh." Donate them to the local school teams or youth programs.
  5. I'mma gonna guess 637
  6. If you have Twitter, check out @ClubProGuy too.
  7. I'll walk when I can. I have the Alphard V2 and it's been a game changer for me. Walking upright, not pushing my cart up hills, I don't feel tired anymore. I rode last weekend at a VERY hilly course with long traverses between holes and kind of happy I did - funny part is carts were included, but the starter told us as we were teeing off, no one beforehand... "cart path only", I would have walked!
  8. Many courses on the cape never close for the winter.
  9. One here is the 525 yd par 5 17th hole. Nothing really special, slight dogleg right. Fairly wide open enough. The challenges are that it's uphill (60-70 feet constant/gradual elevation change from tee to green), and the bend is 370 yds away, leaving about 150ish to the pin on a left to right sloping green (if the pin is on the front right it's more accessible). What makes it difficult is the time of day you play it. It's a much easier hole in the morning than in the afternoon, because the prevailing winds off the ocean are in your face when the afternoon "breeze" kicks in, which with the elevation change and wind, can make it just brutal to make a GIR. Pars in the afternoon are few and far between.
  10. The Legends at Parris Island. 2nded. Not a house on the course, and q-u-i-e-t, unless someone takes off from MCAS Beaufort about 10 miles up the road. I would also suggest Hilton Head National, my favorite public course there.
  11. Missed the 'during'. More coffee needed. Still, common sense says no issue. It still does not meet the definition of a stroke, and therefore, not a practice stroke using any kind of ball (including similar size to conforming - interpretations 5.5.a.) If you make a stroke at a ball, that's practice. If you are just tapping it off the face of your club in an up/down motion, which fails to resemble any type of stroke made on the course, then should be no problem. I've called this on someone before. 2nd hole. After teeing off, walks to ball, waiting for group in front to move, drops shag ball and hits it into the water on purpose to get rid of it. "You know what you just did, right?" "Oh, come on, seriously?" "Yeah, seriously. Don't do that." It doesn't make friends, I'll tell you that much. Juggling? Meets no definition of a stroke.
  12. Stroke: The forward movement of the club made to strike the ball. Juggling is not a forward motion of the club. If you want to get pedantic, you're doing a series of what resembles chipping, which, per 5.5.b (Exception), is expressly allowed between holes.
  13. Howabout Big Cedar in Branson MO? That's middle-ish.
  14. I was on Harbor Town this Oct. Had a bit of rain on a few holes and ended up with an 81 after all was said and done. Great drive on 18, came up a little short/left on the shot on 18, and it bounced off the embankment and back into into the hazard, got up and down for a bogey. Ok, bad luck. I had taken an extra club to make sure it cleared, but chunked it a little and came up short anyways. I hardly ever blame the *over* due to the last hole. There were other shots on the previous 17 that I made a worse mistake, and I find myself looking back on those shots and ... yeah, that's why. I found this really helps take pressure off of *having* to score well on 18 and adding extra pressure on holes where none should really exist. I've had other shots (doubles even) where I've messed up on earlier, and... can't blame my round on just the last hole. All those bigger mistakes happened... back there. Especially since 18 is one of the easiest holes on that course. Maybe next time HT. Maybe next time.
  15. I don't think pre-reg solves anything. I could pre-reg on the 19th after the round, then enter the score. The only way that works is if the starter gets your ghin and takes your attendance ... and you actually play the round instead of heading off to the bar, practice area, and never set foot on the course. --kC
