This Week’s #GolfChat Questions

Q1: Mark Hubbard was in violation of rules, he added a 15th club to his bag at the turn. Thinking penalty would be 2 strokes a hole, but was DQ’d due to “knowingly” adding the club. How do you feel about this? DQ enough or is a suspension warranted for flaunting the rules?  #GolfChat

Q2: Frost delays are meant to protect the course, but can be painful for us. Once you think there might be a frost delay that will affect your tee time what do you do? Call ahead to check? Show up and wait it out? Cancel as soon as you see frost on your windshield? #GolfChat

This Week’s #GolfChat Questions

Q1: Thanks to @_KeithCook for the great picture he took at BrooAll Postskwood GC, the #5 par 4. The leaves are fall so @jimmyflynn27 asks do you play a local leaf rule that if 1 or more players see the ball go into a pile or area heavy with leaves and can’t be found, is a free drop given? #GolfChat

Q2: If the leaves are falling so most likely is the rain. Do the courses you play have a local Winter rule meaning lift, clean, and place your ball within one full club length of its original spot, no closer to the hole. Ball in the same cut of grass, so you cannot move the ball from the rough to the fairway, or from a bunker to the grass, for example? #GolfChat

Q3: Golf rounds will soon become scarce, what do you do when the weather makes playing hard? Indoor (Sim) work, weight room, bowl, other hobbies? #GolfChat

Q4: Are you ready to start working on new golf goals for 2023, or is it too early? If you are working on them, how many “rough drafts” do you go through before arriving at a set list? #GolfChat

Q5: Now matter the region, do you play with any different equipment during winter months and adjust your game to changing conditions? #GolfChat

Q6: What’s your week in golf look like and what are you excited about? #GolfChat
