Should the line on the ball be legal?


Recommended Posts

Or not. One of those times when you think on it overnight and still need to comment.

 

i don’t see a rules forum warden icon by anyone’s name here. Maybe we shouldn’t be telling folks where they ought to be. Folks are getting suspensions for civilly disagreeing with folks who’s tents are setup here , and yet it takes two to argue I’m not sure how that jives with logic

 

And excuses is very much a synonym for reason. It only depends on which side of the rule you fall on. Take the rule change to allow moving things and ground your club in a “ penalty area” What was the excuse for that ? Slow play ? Or ? Certainly wasn’t a good reason and certainly doesn’t follow the spirit of the game in my opinion .

And discussing the impetus for a rules change is certainly in bounds of this forum. It seems that you do not wish to discuss the rule , only protect those excuses. Or only discuss it with certain people deemed “ expert “...? News alert. Your knowledge wasn’t endowed by the creator at birth. It was passed to you by someone. Sometime. I think overall you guys do a great job of passing that along , but the latest trend seems to be that a persistent argument needs to be had to get to that point. And if an agreement isn’t reached you can’t agree to disagree , it must turn to passive aggressive personal attacks. Then a celebration when that person leaves after the institution of mob rule.

 

Just fyi. That how this looks from this non expert.

Balls already have an alignment line on them, of a sort. I use it to line up putts and tee shots.

Golfers would use the name, if a line was outlawed.   The main issue with lines are those who take a lot of time to line it up.

I have seen it. Too many times.

lol. I am ... Youd see a lot more reaction more often if I didn’t take things in this section lightly.

I typed much more response than this and sat on it all day and thought better of it .

I've seen this far to often, guys line up the line , step back look at it and adjust it and repeat this a couple times. I've even seen guys walk around the hole to look at the line.

I've got nothing against it I just wish those who did it would do it quicker.

Oh man does that drive me crazy!! I know, I know, same routine for every putt no matter the distance, blah, blah, blah.

I think you should only be allowed to mark your ball if another player asks for it to be moved before he putts his own.

We can't touch the darn thing anywhere else on the course but as soon as we reach the green it's a molest-fest of constant marking and re-aligning? Death to the line on the ball!!!!
