    Last time I was talked into playing LP...



    Tex: No seriously, I heard LP is in great shape.

    Me: No. It was hot garbage last time I played.

    Tex: Seriously, it will be fine.

    Me: Eh, OK.

    I have to admit, I got a little tingly this morning when Soly dropped a "Trust Fund Tron" in the Mike Davis NLU pod.

    Going to play Waverly Woods tomorrow or Blue Mash either around 0700....then maybe again with Tex in the afternoon. Who wants in for the AM? Haven't bought yet so let me know.




    Open to playing places other than Mash or Waverly, I suppose. Prices there are good though for weekday mornings.

    Anyone playing this afternoon? My plan to Mattaponi on my way to Richmond fell through as they have an outing this afternoon.
    I was going to practice today, but I'll go out at Turf if you want. Let me know. Unless you want to hit LP with Tex. I don't care. Like I said, I was going to practice.



    Also -- that offer is extended to 2 more people, if Bay wants to play.



    I don't know exactly when yet. My plan is to get home around 2 day, walk the dog (30 minutes?) then drive to the course (30 minutes). For an eta of 3. Any of those times could be bumped 10 minutes in one direction or the other.




    I'm in, also very flexible on time, takes me 25 minutes to get there so I need that much advance notice. I will get dressed and put the clubs in the car now.

    OK. I should get there by 3 pretty easily, but you just never know.

    I’ll be working until mid to late afternoon so no round for me most likely. I absolutely want to play my own ball at Turf Valley soon though! Have only played 6 hour scrambles at Hialeah thus far.

    Q. What do you think of the USGA decision to go to a two-hole playoff to decide?

    JORDAN SPIETH: It's the first I've heard of that being an option.



    Q. Really?

    JORDAN SPIETH: It's still 18 holes, right?



    THE MODERATOR: No, it's two.



    JORDAN SPIETH: Oh, it is two? I didn't even know. What do I think of it?



    THE MODERATOR: Two on Sunday.



    JORDAN SPIETH: Two on Sunday. Either way, I mean, I guess strategy changes a little from an entire round, but I honestly had no idea that it even changed. I was even looking at a weather forecast for Monday, thinking, you know, what's it look like if you happen to work your way into a playoff? So shows you what I know.



    THE MODERATOR: Spend the day in the city instead.

    Are we sure that the Solstice special guest won't get scared away after playing the first round with City?

    So I've been waiting for The Golfers Journal to start up their "special events" that they'd been advertising since I first subscribed.



    This is a good first swing



    ====



    Pinehurst No. 4 Preview



    TGJ subscribers are invited to be among the first to play the Gil Hanse-redesigned Pinehurst No.4 when it reopens in September.



    Join the editors and publishers of The Golfer’s Journal for an unforgettable experience as we enjoy a private outing on the latest addition to Pinehurst.

    Were you?



    Out at Waverly, Go_Time told he was US Navy.



    I suggested calling him Battleship. Awesome, right?



    giphy.gif



    Then, PQ decided it was better to call him Rihanna.

    After a couple missed putts, it was being demoted to "Dinghy".

    Yesterday we had a situation that ticked all of the thread war boxes:

    -Controversial rules decisions

    -Making fun of City

    -Questionable integrity

    -Environmental areas at Northwest



    I'm not even sure I should post about it, because it probably won't live up to the hype I just created for it.

    Please tell me someone played a ball on the edge of long grass completely capable of being played as a normal shot.

    It's funny, before my group teed off at Northwest for the Honeypot, our group asked the starter about playing out of the long grass. He basically said if you can find it, go play it, and was confused as to why we were asking. He had no idea about the scorecard reference until we told him.



    I still think if you find your ball in an area where it's okay to be walking (not environmentally sensitive area) in long grass that it's okay to play.

    I had an idea what the ruling was, but wasn't sure. A Google search seems to confirm what I thought. In any case, we agreed to waive the rules in the scenario, and **** ourselves all to golf he!l by doing so.

    I guess we can do that but not make decisions about gur bunkers.

    We were taking pity on Sully. He was losing at the time.



    Also not a tourney, so there was no field in need of protection from our negligent behavior.



    Sully probably just shouldn't have hit it where he did. That'd have been the best solution.

    Hard to argue with these points.

    Final baseball score:



    FAbb - 53

    DC - 51

    Sully - 40



    Looks like ole Sully was willing to throw a meaningless game in the name of summer solstice handicap prep.



    I'd say they were taking mercy on me, but they made me putt a few kick-ins, probably in hopes that I'd be rusty enough to miss them.

    -Sully is a sandbagger

    -FAbb stunk

    -FAbb beat Sully



    I have encountered a WRX Paradox and don't know how to proceed.

    Im sure youll play better tomorrow morning

    It happened on new hole 2.



    Sully hit his tee shot right at what appears to be the corner of the tall grass from the tee. We walk up and find there's actually a cut out beyond the corner on the line his ball was traveling, then more tall grass, then rough. I drove up a ways on his line and didn't find anything. Sully dropped where we saw it cross, but then found his original ball as he played up the hole. Here's a picture.



    sketch_1528912443205.png



    I'm actually not sure what ball Sully played the hole out with at that point, but given we didn't look super hard for his original, and how hard it was to find balls in the rough yesterday anyway, DC and I agreed we were fine with Sully playing his original ball with no penalty.



    I believe the correct ruling is that he'd actually have to play the ball he dropped and put in play, with an additional 2 stroke penalty.



    If they didn't have the dumb nebulous local rule about unmown areas, it wouldn't have been a problem. Sully would have played a provisional off the tee, and eventually been able to play his original once he got to it, with no penalty.

    Sick drive, Sull
  • SullGolfSullGolf Members Posts: 8,811 ✭✭
    I played the dropped ball, then I found the original outside the hazard. I played the dropped ball out. I just wasnt sure if I incurred an additonal penalty for playing the wrong ball or an incorrect drop.



    For shiggles, I did hit a 2nd shot on my original ball, which then probably triggers another penalty.
