I love it when they write golf stories about a hole, but don't tell you about the hole.

What was the yardage playing that day? From each tee? Course rating and hole rating?
What was the condition of the green? Speed? Pin placement? Guarded approach? Water hazards? Bunkers? Elevated? Hard or soft? Crowned or cupped?
How about the conditions that day? Temperature? Barometer? Wind direction and speed? Rain? Even the time of day can make a difference, shadows and lighting?

A pro could hole out 5 or six in a row, on a 50 yard par-3 hole, soft with the pin in a cupped placement. No bunkers. Pleasant conditions.
A 235 yard par-3 hole with a hard-sloping green and the pin 3 paces from a water hazard, uphill into a fronting, swirling cross-wind. You would see no hole-outs in a 72 hole top-pro event.

True, a tournament player would never shoot at that pin.
That's why a golf story should tell about the hole when the play occurred.
Everyone shoots at the pin in a hole-in-one contest. What hazard?

USGA Course Rating is an evaluation of the difficulty of a golf course for scratch golfers.(More specifically, the number is an estimate of the average scores of the best 50-percent of rounds played by scratch golfers at the course being rated.)
Course rating is very easy to understand because it is expressed in strokes. A par-72 course that is easy might have a course rating of 68.9; one that is difficult might have a course rating of 74.5. That means that a scratch golfer should be expected to average 68.9 strokes in his better rounds at the easier course; and 74.5 at the more difficult one.

The same 50 rounds would give a hole average, too, and the hole stroke average had to be greater than or equal to 2.5, but less than 3.5 or it would not have a par of 3.

A contest giving away a $1 million prize would prefer a 3.49 stroke average on a hole.

Never say never.

If you stop bending over around Obama, you wouldn't have to worry about that. Just turn your mom jeans around so the zipper's in the back.

That happened to a guy in my foursome. He broke his arm when he fell off of the ball washer. He claims they are mounted too high and is suing the golf club, unless they lower them.
