  1. “If you want to get laid, go to college. If you want an education, go to the library.” ― Frank Zappa
  2. I know this makes you nuts, Mr Bean. I knew when I posted it would ruin your day. If C fails to say to A, "Put me down for a 4." A would ask, "Hey, C, what did you have?" These kids are alright.
  3. What you might be seeing is a holdover from AJGA. Their pace of play guidance requires: Play ready golf throughout the entire round. The first player to hole out should go toward the next tee and be the first to tee off. The second player to finish should replace the flagstick. This practice is quite simple and practical. My experience as a referee in college golf, though, has been that college players do not make much of an effort to keep it moving until it's about to rain or get dark.
  4. That's my take, too. It's winter here and some find that engaging in trolling amusing.
  5. It's unusual to see someone who presents himself as a good player, arguing for such a silly proposition.
  6. Ha, you're right about that. Many years ago I was in Argentina and the local TV station was airing the US Open. I don't speak Spanish so the mute button was employed. Ah, golf on TV without distractions.
  7. Oh, no. Fifteen more minutes of Notah muttering into his microphone. It's like tinnitus, though unintelligible, it's there and it cannot be ignored.
  8. Scratch in the golf world is nothing much. Scratch in the business world is: "Peterson, make sure Biff is free next week. We're entertaining customers at Augusta."
  9. Driving along in South Carolina on Saturday morning. The FM selections were Jesus or oldies. I'm only half listening when Reelin' and Rockin' gets played. These lines made me laugh: Well, I looked at my watch, and to my surprise I was dancin' with a woman that was twice my size Might be fifty years since I last heard that. https://www.google.com/search?gs_ssp=eJzj4tVP1zc0TM6zqEqriE8yYPQSLEpNzcnMU0jMS1Eoyk_OzswDALztC2U&q=reelin+and+rockin&rlz=1C1CHBF_enUS866US866&oq=reelin+&aqs=chrome.3.69i57j46i512j0i512j46i512j0i512l4j46i512j0i271.13919j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8#wptab=s:H4sIAAAAAAAAAONgVuLVT9c3NEzOs6hKq4hPesRowS3w8sc9YSn9SWtOXmPU5OIKzsgvd80rySypFJLmYoOyBKX4uVB18uxi0ktJTUsszSmJL0lMsspOttLPLS3OTNYvSk3OL0rJzEuPT84pLS5JLbLKqSzKTC5exKqWnFGanK2QlFpUVKlQlJqak5mnrpCYl6JQlJ-cDWJDFAIAGuK04aYAAAA
  10. Dapper, our Havanese, on his first birthday and his first experience with snow. We laughed . . . he didn't know what to make of it that morning.
  11. When you elect to argue with anonymous strangers on the internet, it should come as no surprise that once in awhile one of them has the knowledge and experience which outweighs what you think you know from having read about in a magazine.
  12. Kangaroo x2 here. One remote and one non. I use the non because I don't enjoy "driving" the remote. However, I think most prefer the remote version. One consideration is whether your cart lives in your car's trunk or in the club's cart barn. The Kangaroo is heavy and it would get old fast if you're hauling it around in your car. Our two live in the cart barn (along with 75 others.)
  13. I'm an "old pilot." I might have got away with it in my F4 or GV, but never in my MTOW Boeing or L-1011.
  14. Old pilots know better than to try a 180* return.
  15. C'mon, boyo, at least we're not endlessly beating the poor dead horse otherwise known as sandbagging.
  16. Though I'd heard the expression used in Suffolk when I lived there, I didn't hear it later in London or South Wales. Used by Newby suggests it's a Yorkshire term. Think, Last of the Summer Wine.
  17. Our one year-old Havanese, Wiggly, upon his first morning with snow.
  18. I've had my True Blue for about ten years. For the first five, I fussed and worried and schemed to know that the loft and lie readings I was seeing were perfect. It was a profitless endeavor for me. I concluded that my machine was pretty good, not exact, but plenty good enough. What mattered was that my lies were right for my swing and that my loft gaps were what I wanted. So if my 7 iron measured 62* and 34* on my True Blue and they fit me, I no longer cared whether they measured the same by some other more precise method. That said, it's a good learning experience to go through the motions. Also, what I suspect is that give three clubmakers the same clubheads and the same tools and their measurements are unlikely to all be exactly the same.
  19. 1 hour ago, antip said: You could try the USGA and see if they give a different answer ([email protected]) Or, call them at 908-326-1850. The person who answers will happily give you the correct ruling. Honest, they take all sorts of questions all day . . . it's their job.

  21. Dear me, this is tedious. I wonder if some other tv channel is airing curling?
  22. Dear Mr Stupid Rule Change. Perhaps you are unaware that the Stupid Rule Change was asked for by the various professional TV golf organizations. The ruling bodies made the change at their behest.
  23. Opine to your heart's content. But, here's the Rule 6.4. https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=fr&section=rule&rulenum=6&subrulenum=4
