The Real Rules of Regular Guy Golf

Recommended Posts

If you drive your ball deeply into the woods, the woods are without question a lateral hazard. They're to the side of you, right?

Take a drop roughly twenty-five yards beyond where the ball may have gone in and play three from there.  Playing two is pushing it. Sorry.

 

If you accidentally blast your drive right down the middle and it lands in a divot, we all know that this was never intended to happen.  Do NOT lift and place but casually 

push your ball out of the divot with your clubhead.

 

We all know that grounding the clubhead in a bunker is a big no no.  I have heard little discussion about using a tee, however, so that may be up to interpretation.

 

If you're looking at a putt that you obviously can make, just pick up your ball.  We're all tying to speed up play a little.

 

And if your brand new cart bag has fourteen full-length dividers plus a dedicated putter well, who would question that this is permission from the golf gods to bag fifteen clubs?

 

Regular Guy Golf.         It surpassed the USGA / R&A version some time ago.     We classy MGS types will have no part of it, though.

Nope.  Lift, clean if desired, and place the ball with the alignment mark at target.  If you're going to apply Regular Guy golf, do so correctly 🤣.

That's the Civilized Guy version of Regular Guy golf.

I have certainly played in groups that played by these rules plus many, many more. 🙂

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

Poking around through archived threads, I have ascertained that revkev means Reverend Kevin.  I think.

I hope that we can enjoy discourse without your Boss setting this secular humanist on fire all of a sudden.

I also ascertain, Rev, that you've got game.  That's a contrast at least as noticeable as the first.

 

The last remaining living member of my family's previous generation, my dad's baby brother, lives at the Villages.

I can't visit him, however.   Rhonda Santis has a bounty on my Massachusetts head.

Apparently,  exploits from my youth at awesome parties at the Fontainebleau have come to light.

That was MY Florida. The Fontainebleau and the ponies at Hialeah.  

The golf wasn't bad, but I don't know how anybody putts Bermuda.

 

Perhaps, Rev, you can give me some tips after the statutes of limitations kick in.

Your posts are great.

 

PS:  May we please have Tom Brady back?

Too funny and too kind. My boss wants me to play nice so you’ll never have an issue with me plus I’ve already been enjoying your posts. 
 

I’m a New England native but from that state which swings NY’s way sometimes.  
 

You’ll be happy to learn that most of our courses are transitioning away from Bermuda Greens to heartier grasses that fare better in the winter months. Despite being from the Northeast and the living in the Midwest I found myself a better putter on Bermuda than Poa or Bent - so I’m sad about that transition. 
 

With Bermuda the ball would always break towards the setting sun.

My favorite, and I know guys who do it, is to drop an out of bounds or lost ball drive at the edge of the fairway - and take a 1 stroke penalty instead of 2. Not sure where that liberty came from. It’s easy to look up rules, but many players don’t…

Let's not forget about the re-tee rules.

1. Obvious breakfast ball.  No matter the time/reason.  You get 2 shots on the first tee if you want to use them.

2. If you don't use 2 on first tee, well that is banked for later in the round.

3. If any sound is out of the ordinary (bird chirping, cart passing, mouse fart) and causes you to shank you get free re-shot

Golf is a game.  Games are intended to be fun!  If you'd like to play strictly by "The Rules" I'm totally on board; however, I LIKE these rules a lot more, and we'll have a lot more FUN!! 😆
