Default Golf Etiquette (1)


At the pro level, it's as good as carved into the grass.
Part of what they look at when reading a putt is how the
ball will behave on the second putt.

That's so you don't cave-in the side of the hole.
The result, unfortunately, is the rest of the green gets
"rolled" by the foot traffic, and there's an annulus of
un-trod grass around the hole, which can turn away a weak
putt that had the line dead until the last few inches.
This is also why good practice aids for putting all come
with a lip or rim or slope just around the hole.

Spikes aerate the green. I think it was a mistake to ban
them, but then, it requires teaching people how to walk, when they're drinking.

Yep. I'm amazed Michell hadn't been taught where to
stand when someone is over their ball. Her dad was
clueless, too, which tells you how she'd never been
taught.

My dad taught me to stand still behind and to one side, and
not to fiddle with my putter. I make a habit of hiding my
putter behind my shoe if the sun is out, so it won't flash.

Which reminds me, it needs a refinishing, because right
now it couldn't flash if it dropped its raincoat.

Usually, in ready golf, it's up to you to wait until people
reach their balls before putting yours, and if they're
still arriving on the scene when you hit, that's your
decision. Part of ready golf is reading the putt while
standing over it, so there's none of that plumb-bobbing
and surveying the green.

Hence the small market for the headcover boom-box.

[snip]

The "foggier" part being though, just how far beyond.
A sports writer reports, that Kuchar said, that Dimarco explained
(how's that for a reference?) it was "a couple of feet".
Probably longer than that in some pro's minds.
