Dropping a ball on the fairway if your ball goes into the rough or OB?

If my ball went through OB, I suspect I'd either play another or consult a colo-rectal surgeon.

I think I'd be the one consulting a surgeon, at your cost.

There's lots we could wish for, rogolf.  But let's just wait and see whether they can achieve anything worthwhile.

Now that's definitely not a positive approach!  Your glass is certainly more than half-empty.

 

Did you provide any input to your national golf association (who just might have had some input)?

OB wants to play Putt-Putt on a full sized course. Needs a new set of rules to start with...

Are you suggesting that his only interest is a lower score?

I think he's saying that golf courses need more windmills.

Or something.

Yes, I'm getting older every day and can see many benefits in simplifying the rules somewhat radically for the majority of golfers.

But I can also recognise that top level golf might be better off in retaining some of the nitty gritty of tedious, detailed rules.

So it seems I'm a fan of bifurcation.
