Right of hole #13 there’s a new “Urban Fishery.” If you slice the hell out of a drive you might bean a fisherman. But the sign says the golfer is responsible for “errant” shots. Does this mean that if I intentionally bean one of the fishermen in the urban fishery by executing a perfect and intentional shot, that I’m not responsible? Am I also not responsible for errant shots that are hit somewhere else than in the urban fishery?
I love golf signs, especially ones that I have to read about 300 times to figure them out and still can’t.
I love how some grammar freak like me used a golf pencil to put in the missing comma after “the golfer.”
The sign addresses “the golfer.” So what if a person who isn’t a golfer is reading the sign? And what if a person who is not a golfer hits a ball? Or is the sign simply trying to call out the golfer in a group of non golfers? “Hey you, the golfer.”
I’m still trying to wrap myself around the “consequences of the ball you hit” part. The ball has consequences? I find that hard to believe but let’s assume it does. Why shouldn’t the ball itself be responsible for its own consequences? Why should I, assuming I’m the golfer, be responsible?
Apparel scripting is one of the most crucial and important aspects of one’s golf game, just ask any golf company or golf PR person around the major championships. It’s all about the scripts.
With that in mind I crafted a hell of a combo golf shoe and putter grip script today and it really made a huge difference in my performance and my score. Check it out:
The goal of today’s shoe and putter grip scripting was to set a color scheme and combination which allowed me to fully concentrate on the shot at hand. One which was simple, and not distracting. One would not want to be midway through one’s putting stroke only to be completely distracted by the fact that there are 73 different colors between your shoes, socks, and putter grip.
The script worked very well and I played a solid and satisfying round in high winds and cold.
For my next script I plan to start with this setup, then drop acid.
As a drone builder and flyer I’m interested in autonomous technology. Below is a video and info about an autonomous fairway mower. It mows the course without a human piloting it. I dig the technology but I also worry about potential golf jobs lost with this sort of thing.
