  1. I know this has been discussed and if I have missed the resolution or even the decision that it would not be added then I apologize. In general I love the new format and enjoy the information that this forum provides. That being said, I read using the "unread content" format. The forum thread list does not show the original date the thread was started and does not show the number of new postings. It does show the total number of postings - but not how many are new. Both of these items would be very useful in determining if I want to read that thread or not. Thanks for all the work you do in providing this forum, I know how much is required and the effort it takes to make major changes.

  6. I would think the Superintendent is more concerned with his total cost and not how the game of golf is or should be played - maybe rightfully so? The rules of golf do not address the position of rakes in/out of bunkers. However, they have a decision that addresses it and the recommendation is that they should be OUTSIDE of the bunkers. Decision misc-2. Once heard a story about a ball against a rake on a severe side slope of bunker. Player had to take a drop (with penalty) outside the bunker since he could not get it to stay on the slope. Not allowed to "press" it into the sand to make it stay etc. Don't know if the story is true but sounds like an extreme case that would not come up to often. Here is the USGA decision answer: A. There is not a perfect answer for the position of rakes, but on balance it is felt there is less likelihood of an advantage or disadvantage to the player if rakes are placed outside bunkers. It may be argued that there is more likelihood of a ball being deflected into or kept out of a bunker if the rake is placed outside the bunker. It could also be argued that if the rake is in the bunker it is most unlikely that the ball will be deflected out of the bunker. However, in practice, players who leave rakes in bunkers frequently leave them at the side which tends to stop a ball rolling into the flat part of the bunker, resulting in a much more difficult shot than would otherwise have been the case. This is most prevalent at a course where the bunkers are small. When the ball comes to rest on or against a rake in the bunker and the player must proceed under Rule 24-1, it may not be possible to replace the ball on the same spot or find a spot in the bunker which is not nearer the hole – see Decision 20-3d/2. If rakes are left in the middle of the bunker the only way to position them is to throw them into the bunker and this causes damage to the surface. Also, if a rake is in the middle of a large bunker it is either not used or the player is obliged to rake a large area of the bunker resulting in unnecessary delay. Therefore, after considering all these aspects, it is recommended that rakes should be left outside bunkers in areas where they are least likely to affect the movement of the ball. Ultimately, it is a matter for the Committee to decide where it wishes rakes to be placed.

  8. I use the small tire pumping compressor and it works just fine. No trouble getting them on or off and the only one that I have blown out was when trying to remove one that had been put on with double sided tape ( note: it doesn't come off easily at all but if I was going to try again I would use the pvc pipe trick.) If your're doing a lot of them maybe invest it better equipment - but for doing a few sets a couple of times a year - it is not necessary. Spend it on more clubs?
  9. Shooting your age AND with a hole-in-one will really make your day. Shooting your age, however, is not as rare as it might sound. The following article will give you pause to think. Never ceases to amaze me. http://golf.about.com/od/faqs/f/ageshooters.htm Not to spoil the reading - but the world record is approaching 3000 times - that's 3 thousand times!

  11. I like the Alligator - maybe it will ward off the creatures that roam on some of the courses?
