Or the time they declared singles couldn't post rounds. Coincidentally eliminating most walkers from posting half their rounds. Hmmm. $ is a big part of the USga agenda.
To call singles dishonest for no reason and allow putting with the pin in and free replacement of any ball you move " accidentally " just slaps people in the face if you're trying to use logic.
The USga deserves every ounce they get good or bad.
So singles that couldn't post their rounds eliminated WALKERS from posting rounds ? LOL
What are the 3 LARGEST complaints about golf ?
Right. Cost, slow play (and the time it takes in general) and SANDBAGGING.
So singles can't post their rounds bothers you why again ? LOL
A cornerstone of handicapping is "peer review". Of which, BTW, there is NONE when someone plays alone (not that there would be much if he was playing with strangers,,,,, or even with friends for that matter.
But that's a different story and one that hopefully will be addressed by the WW handicapping changes for NEXT year.,,,,,,,
Define "irony". Someone defending a single's ability to post scores for handicaps by the guy who is probably the most vociferous on the site about the sandbaggers at HIS club.
Talk about irony.
Most baggers travel in packs. It's the regular 4 somes that breed this. Takes playing partners who don't say anything to get it done. Singles are opposite if anything. Do overs etc equal a vanity cap. Not a bagger.
Think about it. If you wanted to cheat as a single. Just enter fake scores . No need to play. Sandbaggers arent erased now that singles can't post. So the point doesn't hold water.
You have that half-right:
Sandbaggers usually do have a regular "group" where sandbagging is just part of the deal. They're ALL sandbaggers.
However, one of the ways they sandbag is that they go and play "late afternoon" rounds alone (or sometimes with the wife) and miraculously always shoot well above their average score. Believe me, I was handicap chairman for a minute. It's rampant....
