PIN IN or PIN OUT??
I would love to see what fellow WRXers think about keeping the pin in vs taking it out.
Personally, it makes intuitive sense that it should be easier to make a putt in a hole with NOTHING in it, vs having something in that hole. And I'm not good enough to hit the center of the hole (pin) to slow the ball down vs popping the ball out of the hole. Call me "old school" for wanting to take the pin out...
I also think it makes things more awkward and could slow the game down if someone in your group wants the pin in, but someone else wants it out; that's counterproductive to what the USGA/R&A intended. It has certainly slowed down some rounds in my experience.
For lag putting, I totally dig leaving the pin in. Tending the flag always seemed unnecessary. I'm not going to make that 60-footer...just leave it. But any putt that's makeable, TAKE THE PIN OUT, please.
I'd love to hear your thoughts!
