  1. You don't play with old men who can hit a crop duster 3 wood from 120 yards that makes two skippy ball marks before ending up at the back of the green. No way they're walking around looking for anyone's ball marks. Jeez Louise, they can't see that far and have no idea how their ball got to where it did.
  2. Look what I found, apparently Mr Bean isn't crazy (well, about this topic, anyway). http://edition.cnn.com/2009/SPORT/11/04/littering.golf.balls/
  3. Well, the zinc in ball number 1 could magically repel ball numbers 2, 3 and 4 if their zinc contents are unequal.
  4. Get the first one over with.
  5. 14.2 Replacing Ball on Spot https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=fr&section=rule&rulenum=14&subrulenum=2
  6. We're not buying hundreds more stakes and enduring the visual of having them at very short intervals along the "wavy" edges of the streams and then dealing with them knocked over by the mowers.
  7. Anyone mind if we "drift" even further from the OP's topic? This is likely to become one of our eight Local Rules on January 1: PENALTY AREAS All penalty areas are designated as red penalty areas and are marked with red stakes and/or red lines. However, for any penalty area with red stakes only, the edge of that red penalty area is defined by the adjacent mowing line. Our course has several creeks and streams, all containing flowing water, which come into play on half the holes. Greenskeeping mows as close as they can to these small bodies of water. It's impractical to define the penalty areas by stakes alone and there's no appetite for painting more than a half a dozen times each season. Even then, the paint barely lasts a week until it's mowed away. Committee Procedures now suggests that methods such as physical features may be used to define penalty area edges. Does anyone else use anything similar?
  8. Ah, well, sometimes we have to take the world as we find it and not as we wish it might be.
  9. How do they do that, Dave? Perhaps MLR C-2 Changing Status of Areas of Sand?
  10. My pro shop credit is all hanging in my wife's closet.
  11. In the days when Tom Wishon worked for Ralph Maltby and then for Dynacraft before going off to Golfsmith?
  12. I've been a customer of Golfworks since 1978.
