  1. Happened across this very clever solution on Insta... Edit: Not a penalty anymore - *IF* the double-tap was unintentional... Thx, cnosil. (But you still have to be an adept trick shot artist - and s very good actor to pull it off!)
  2. I am looking at buying a set of 2009 Callaway X-Forged or Razr X Forged. I played the 2007 X-Forged but since they were non-conforming, I switched to the Bridgestone J38 Dual Pocket Cavity (great clubs). I have the itch to go back to the Callaway forgings due to their weight (D2) (Bridgestone are a D1). Plus, I really like the look and feel of them. The Question: The 2009 X-Forged has grooves that are spaced "normal" but the Razr X Forged has the tightly spaced conforming grooves. Are the tighter grooves good or bad? (I've heard they don't change much) Additionally, does anyone know if
  3. Have you guys seen this? http://golfweek.com/2018/01/24/web-com-tour-player-throws-headcover-at-caddie-over-costly-and-mysterious-penalty/ Quick summary: Web.com player in the hunt for a tournament win, hooks ball into hazard on the last hole. Caddie picks up ball. Rules official assesses a stroke penalty because the caddie got the ball without explicit authorization from the player. Gibson drops and hits, nearly holes out. Grabs putter out of the bag, pulls headcover, and flings the headcover at the caddie. Apparently at the same time, fires the caddie. Gibson finishes 3rd instead o
  4. Hey guys. I've been lucky to be able to afford a lot of golf stuff, and as an addict I constantly add new things to the collection I'd like to do a giveaway of some stuff like rain suits, tees etc... as I don't use them, and not really feeling like selling them on the bay. Are there any rules I should follow? Is it ok to post it in the contest section? Thx
  5. I was at the 19th hole yesterday when one in our group relayed a story regarding a controversial ruling during a match play event at the club: On a par 3 with a carry over a water hazard (with mud and reeds obscuring the far side), the player's tee shot appeared to be short and potentially in the hazard. The player declared a provisional shot and struck a ball from the drop zone, holing out for three. The player then declared that they would take the provisional shot and not search for the original ball. The opposing team objected, walked to the edge of the hazard, and found the original ba
  6. That guy ... you know the one that thinks he is better than he actually is. He may do some of the following: line up every putt as if it's for the U.S. Open take as much time lining up the putt for an 8 that he does for a par get mad at someone because they "took the tee box from you" .... just because we are in the interest of slow play, we like to play "ready golf" ... especially when there is a storm clearly heading our direction! spend 10 minutes looking for the ball that was clearly hit OB just because you are the last group off in the league and there is no one behind you blame
  7. hot off the press ... obviously in response to Lexi ruling http://www.usga.org/articles/2017/04/new-rules-of-golf-decision-limits-use-of-video-review.html a good start and it looks like we might see more changes in the revisions being considered
  8. Last week during a league match a friends opponent tried to make the argument that his best shot at a ball would be left handed. If he were to hit left handed then his stance would be impeded by the cart path. The ball was located in between a hazard and the cart path. To swing right handed he would have to stand in the swampy tall grass. His opponents let him have free relief, and he dropped it at the point of nearest relief and then hit the ball right handed. We got to arguing this one on the 19th hole, and google really wasn't all that helpful. 1. One guy said fine if he gets free
