  1. I blow mine on using masking tape or blue painters tape. I've never had one slip.
  2. Anyone that knows anything about wearing earbuds you can always wear one bud, have it turned down, so you can have your ambience and still hear and talk to everyone around. At my old job driving forklifts we were allowed to listen to our music this way. I could hear the intercom,horns blow and I could stop and talk to other employees at the same time. We didn't have to deal with rattlesnakes but I'm sure I could hear them too. When I walk my dog in the park if someone wants to talk to me I will pull one bud out and have a conversation with them while still listening to my music. The is a difference in not wanting to and can't.
  3. Yep I did the say thing.. Crank up Nugent. As you mature you realize certain things that you did wasn't exactly the right thing to do. Some people get it and change and some never do change. You will always have issues come up. I have my rights and you have yours. I have the right to not hear your music and you have the right to play it. Somewhere in there comes what is the right thing to do and consideration of others. It was suggested I wear ear plugs if I don't want to hear music but at the same time they could play their music wearing earbuds but that would inconvenience them so I should be the one to deal with it. If you can't play your music without bothering others it's simple. Don't play it.
  4. You still haven't answered my question. Why don't you use earbuds. Problem solved. Believe me I like my music. I play my music at work on my breaks and lunch but I use earbuds. I walk my dog for hrs in the park while listening to music but I wear earbuds. I played in a scramble recently. Everyone was drinking heavily and we were jamming to ACDC, etc. It was a different environment. Yes I liked it. I wouldn't say yes to any music on the course on a regular day because I am considerate of others and I know the majority doesn't like it. If I am part of a group playing music I am no better than the group it self. I've played music on the course with my ear buds on sometimes as a single.
  5. I don't need it perfectly quite. My taste in music may not be the same as yours. Why should I have to wear ear plugs or make accommodations because of someone being rude and playing their music on the course?. Why don't you use ear buds to listen to your music? Problem solved. You wouldn't be bothering anyone that way. That's the problem in the world today. People are no longer considerate of others. They do what they want and expect others to make accommodations for their poor behavior. I was listening to music (yes I like music) at the carnival last night. The guy beside us fires up a cigarette. i asked him if he could go over to the side to smoke it because it was bothering us. Some people had already moved away from him. His reply was if you don't like it why don't you move away. I told him I shouldn't have to move because you are being inconsiderate. Some people just don't get it or care.
  6. The only music I like on the course is the music I can't hear. If no one could hear other people's music we would never be talking about this in the first place. Not hearing someone's music is almost impossible to do even when someone is being considerate. I recently went out as a single and a single was behind me. I didn't know he was playing music for the most part. He was 100 yds out while I was on the green on one hole and I heard nothing. When he got to the green and I was waiting on the next teebox I could hear he was playing opera music. I found it very distracting even though it was low. I teed off on the next hole, hit my approach shot and when I saw him behind me in the fairway I motioned him to play up. He pulled up and I let him finish the hole. He asked if I wanted to pair up and I said no my taste in music was different than his and that I was letting him play through. He said I had it down low. I thanked him for being respectful but said while we would be teeing off together and being on the green together I would be hearing it and it wasn't my thing. He rode off with a pissed off look on his face. I don't see why people don't wear ear buds. I love my music when walking my dog but I use ear buds. I don't want to hear your music and I know you don't want to hear mine.
  7. Well the tee sheet was full. I couldn't see the pile up behind them but if I was the group behind them I wouldn't be to happy seeing an open hole ahead of them. I get that you can only play a fast as the course is playing for the day. When it is slow I play slower myself because there is no where to go. I get that. I only thought that you still should keep up. I too would love to hang back and not have to wait. I feel if everyone would do that and create a hole gap because there is no place to go that would only make matters worse. Maybe I don't get it. I recently went out as a twosome. There was a twosome in front of us and the course was extremely slow. We offered to pair up and they declined because they decided they would play two balls on each hole. It was true they had no place to go even playing two balls but I didn't think that was right. When the ranger came by I told him they were playing two balls, He went up and talked to them and he came back and said it was slow and as long as they were keeping up. So we decided to play two balls too. The ranger came by later and told us the foursome behind us complained we were playing two balls. I said we are doing exacting what the group ahead of us is doing and we are keeping up with them. You didn't have a problem with them doing it so I hope you told the foursome behind us the same thing you told us before. He told us to play only one ball and he would tell the group ahead the same thing. I play alot as a single too. I agree with you I adjust my pace too but the problem does come up when a group comes up behind you. Now what do you do? I may putt around or chip during the wait. Do you continue to do this if the group behind is now waiting on you or do you walk off and stand to the side waiting on the next hole?
  8. I don't fully understand this. They were a hole to a hole1/2 behind us. If I took the same approach and allowed myself to be the same from the group ahead and the group ahead did the same thing and so on up to the group holding everything up wouldn't that seem to be a problem? I have often thought when I am waiting on every shot that I would prefer to wait on the tee box unitl the group ahead finishes the complete hole then tee off and play the hole not waiting on every shot to play the hole. I would prefer all my waiting time to be in one spot and then play the whole hole without waiting. I have seen groups doing this before and wanted to play this way myself but didn't think it was proper.
  9. Buy a larger wall socket cover to hide the hole. Before changing the cover stick a screwdriver in the socket to see if the power to that socket is on. If so turn off the power to that socket.
  10. I hit mine well and I am very happy with it. I noticed I have to play the ball an inch or two up in my stance over previous drivers to hit it down the middle of the fairway. When I fall back to my previous ball position I'll get a fade or a push right. At least I know what the problem is for me and I can correct it on my next drive. After I found my best setting I changed out the stock grip to what I play on my clubs and I think it did help to control the clubhead better. The weird thing about the stock grip was that I noticed it started twisting on the shaft. I ordered my grip oversized to start with and it was fine at first. When I changed it out the tape on the shaft was good but the extra layers of tape they used to build it up was all gooey. I've never seen tape like that. I hope you figure it out Tanner25.
  11. I like the Chromesoft and Supersoft but not the ones looking like soccer balls. These will probably be my next purchase in matte green or yellow. Callway's color pop in the grass for me. Even better than the Maxfli Softfli I play. I seem to have the problem only with the Srixon matte green color. It's a shade darker comparing to other balls of similar color. Must be my eyes but my friends are not finding my Srixons for me either.
  12. I'm a 13 cap. The most pars I have had in a row is 9. I've done it a few times. Earlier this yr I had 13 pars, one birdie with nine of those pars in a row. I didn't break 80. A few yrs ago I was one under on the front going into nine a par 5. I took a 10 on the hole. On the back nine I was playing the back even par going into 18 a par3. I took an eight on the hole. I consider that round my best 16 hole round I ever played..lol
  13. LOL.. Were the players in front older players? That's old school but they got it wrong. When someone drives into you you set their ball up on a tee not stick a tee beside the ball. It's a nice way to let you know that you hit into them and that you should pay attention with when it is safe to hit. It's a polite message to let you know. It requires no confrontation but it would have been nice if you rode up and apologized. I've done the same thing over my yrs of playing. If you don;t get the message and do it again you might need to look for your ball in the closest weeds. If we really have a problem you can come and get your ball from my pocket. I'll gladly return it. I think you are over reacting with the tee. It's the nicest form of "you are hitting to close to us" I agree with you they should have let you know they were still there but you can't count on people to do the right thing. You can only count on yourself in doing the right thing. You should have made sure the coast was clear to tee off.
  14. I agree with this. We usually give 2 footers and closer. We use our own judgement too, If that 2 footer has alot of break too it we will putt it out. We say if there is a chance you feel you might miss it then you putt it. Straight in 2 footers we pick up. Anything longer than that we putt. I use to play with a guy that putted everything out. He would mark his ball, then align it up and walk around the hole no matter how close his ball was to the hole. It drove me crazy. I'm talking about even a 6 inch putt. I have no problem putting everything out but please don't take all day on the close ones. I don't. I have no problems with gimmes either but don't ask if it is a gimme if you are out 2 ft or more.
  15. I'm a mid 80's shooter. I play the Maxfli Softfli in matte green. I like them alot. I also like the Callway Supersoft. I'd like to play the Callaways more often but with Dicks running sales on the Softfli 3 dozen for $30 I may never get to buy the Callways. I bought 6 dozen Softfli's the last time they went on sale. That should last me a few yrs. I'll probably stock up on more if they do that sale again.
