Marshals at the US Open putting a flag near the ball to show players where they are in the rough. The golf authorities always argue against bifurcation on the grounds that golf should be the same game at all levels … so where are the marshals pointing out my balls in the cabbage? Pointing out balls means that there is no real penalty for a wayward shot … I know that there is little they can do about crowds pointing them out (and there are no crowds watching me), but using marshals specifically for the purpose is blatant mollycoddling. Rant over.
I’m sure you’d be happy to pay for all the marshals needed to line your golf course.

Playing yesterday got the feeling that the things I’ve been really struggling with are just starting to work…been scoring pretty well but it could be so much better if and when these things are sorted - but just as soon as I discover the feeling I go on holiday and no golf until week Monday earliest…darn.

Hole19 app has been playing up something awful this weekend. Any other users have problems with it?? Whenever I reopened the app it would jump two holes back, so I'd have to scroll forwards again to the correct hole, but then the yardage in the top right was frozen as well. It was so annoying, adding an extra 20 odd second every time. Normally works perfectly so I've no idea what was wrong with it.

Sounds like a trigger for another slow play debate. 😉

Was your shirt untucked or were you wearing black socks with shorts too?

Playing the 4th yesterday in round two of the Club champs, hit my tee shot right side of the green over the front bunker, should have been back of the green, no sign of it searched to no avail, lost ball on a hole with no trouble right side, except the bunkers in cleared🙄
Had to go back to the tee and hit another and got a 6.

Handicap up from 14.5 to 15.3 in two short weeks, and the next two going off are counting ones as well. ☹️ Think I've mentioned this before but I really don't like this system.. 😆

Oh well. Looks like I need to shoot 81 or better on my next two rounds. 😬

Yeah, it's been hard work lately. I got to the bit of my record where I had 5 counting rounds in a row, all from my old course, where the course/slope ratings are all inexplicably much higher. So I didn't have much chance of maintaining it. My goal was to get down to 13 or possibly even 12, but it's one step forward and two back.

12 is my goal for now! Then I will re-asses :ROFLMAO:

Im contemplating quitting my job and setting up a youtube channel to document my progress from mid-handicap to scratch! I think itll only take me 12 months! ;):ROFLMAO:

Do make sure you hire a succession of coaches before belittling them on a public forum as well.
