    Buddy and his cuz were playing at a local course yesterday when the marshall just happened to be on the #1 tee box. They were playing the tips (6850) and the marshall asked them what their hdcp was.Buddy tries to joke and says whatever club is in my hand. Marshall had no humor and told them they are really busy and should maybe move up a box (6300ish). Buddy said he would not and they both proceeded to smoke their drives from the tips. They were a twosome with 4some in front of them. 

    Hole #5 same marshall approached them (they were keeping up just fine and waiting every shot) and told them that they both needed to hit as soon as the group in front of them  hit their shots from the fairway. Buddy said he would not because he is much longer than the  group in front of them and can reach the par 5s in 2. Marshall didnt like that he wasnt willing to change his game to accommodate the packed course.  

    This rubs me wrong because all their marshalls (minus 1) are all like this and rule with what is almost an iron fist. Its to the point that when we see a marshall coming we say "who ÷&%$ up this time". Complete turn off to this course but we do play it a ton early season as it drains decently. 

    They do a 7/8 minute tee time rotation so maybe thats on them for aiding in creating slow play. 

    Buddy plays to a -2 while his cuz plays to a -6 so both certainly capable.

    So there's this restaurant/hotel chain that's here in Portland and every person who works there is the biggest jerk ever. It always makes me wonder what these people are like in interviews. Are the people hiring them glad they're jerks? This also applies to marshals at courses. They're usually humorless old cats who are in your business. There seems to be a common theme in that they forget that you're a customer and you've paid money to be there. So don't come over and yap at me about hurrying up or moving up tees. Unless I'm doing something egregious, gtfoh.

  2. I used to play a 52 but I've moved to 45 PW followed by 50-54-58. I'm using the 54 out of the sand most the time unless I'm in a weird lie or next to the lip, in which case I switch to the 58.


    Was just having this conversation with our playing group the other day and it turns out most of us are locked into one club inside of like 80 yards most of the time. One guy is a PW guy no matter what, one guy hits his 52, and I'm a 58 guy because I can't generate any backspin. Golf is funny that way I guess.
