re: New rule with leaving pin in while putting - makersmark1
Initially, I just figured if Bryson did it, it must be science. I’m just looping for fun with friends. I leave it in when asked and take it out if asked. I do see if it is leaning to much and take it out if so. Only happens occasionally....

re: New rule with leaving pin in while putting - makersmark1
I just leave it in because I’m lazy. There are articles favoring leaving it in, but golf digest did an article that said we should take it out because on off center hits of the stick, it goes out more than if you took it out. Our greens are pathetic now so it does not matter....

re: How do you identify a sandbagger? - makersmark1
[quote]78 and then a 95 a few days later[/quote] Greg Norman shot a 63 at Augusta and then a 78 on Sunday. Bad golf is part of everyone’s golf. It is more likely to play good, then bad than good, good, good. Sandbagging is when a person not only beats their handicap, but does it consecutive...

Does a coach have to disclose health issues? - makersmark1
With the report that Coach Saban is having “hip replacement” surgery, I wondered whether it was required for him to disclose that. Could this be a smokescreen for “cyborg” surgery? IF he’s coaching in 2069, the answer will be obvious. ...

re: Anyone become a doctor later in life, or know of someone who did? - makersmark1
[quote] Just curious, i think these days anything prior to 60 years old is considered early retirement, though i know a couple who retired in their mid-30s after they sold their business.. at around what age do you think you’ll hang it up?[/quote] I guess it’s not really early, but 61 is when I’m...

I had a friend who flew jets in Vietnam and finished med school in 1987 around 40 years old. He loves being a doctor way more than I do. ...

re: How do you identify a sandbagger? - makersmark1
[quote]Not my fault I mostly shoot low 80s but can drop the occasional 72. (Once a year or so it comes together)[/quote] As a 5 index, this would be believable. IF you shot 72 three straight days in a net tournament, then it is not believable. Sandbagging is not having one stellar round. It...

re: How do you identify a sandbagger? - makersmark1
Handicap is not an average. It takes a percent of the average of the 10 best of your last 20 rounds. Also you have an equitable stroke control where when you make a 10 but you can only record a 7 on any given hole. Handicap is not your average. It represents your potential. Beating it by m...

re: Missouri to the West, Auburn to the East - makersmark1
Reseeding would only occur once every ten years. So if you go 80-0 over 10 years you are number 1. If two teams are 40-40 in the SEC, head to head is first tie breaker. Over a ten year period, you do play everybody at least once....
