How about the guy in his late 40's with a staff bag/matching clubs, who wears a visor, smokes like a chimney, and has leather skin.  This guy hasn't given up on the dream, wasn't quite good enough for the tour, but is getting ready for the senior tour.  We have a couple of local Class A teaching pros in my area that are incredible players.  Unfortunately, the like the bottle or the drugs a little more than golf.  These guys can be very scary to play against.

Are they equal in the eyes of the USGA.  SURE.  I'll give you that.

You take a kid that grew up playing Bethpage...and maintains a 1 hdcp.  Take another kid...grew up playing a short open course...also maintains a 1 hdcp.

The kid that grew up playing the short open course...hasn't been exposed to course length or the fact that you're 10 yards off the fairway your ball is unplayable yet.  He won't be a 1 handicap for much longer after 10-15 posted scores.

I disagree, the kid playing bethpage probably never shoots under par.  Hell, he can be a career high 70's guy.  Playing the same difficult track becomes easy.   To maintain a 1 on a short wide open course means you still have to be able to sink putts and get up and down to go under par.   Bethpage kid is putting on well kept greens and playing out of nice bunkers.  Where as the other guy is not.  Having the "mentality" to go low still says a lot.   Comparing course ratings is not the whole story.  Guys who can maintain low caps playing various courses will probably beat both of these guys.

Sorry, thats not the way golf works.  When you are a highly skilled golfer....and golf courses get easier...you score lower.  You're not trapped shooting 75's no matter where you play.  Doesn't work that way boss.

Last try - then I'm done with this...

Do you not understand that the scores necessary to maintain a 1 handicap vary based on course rating and slope?  You might have to shoot 79s at Bethpage to accomplish it, while you would have to shoot 70s at some local muni.  By design, the USGA handicap system is intended to equalize the two players based on difficulty of the course.  And I disagree that some bro who plays at Bethpage and averages 79 is automatically going to go start pouring off 70s at the local muni just because he plays at Bethpage.  One requires maintaining, one requires going low.  Two different skills indeed, but they both bring and equal and unique value to the table (thus the whole idea of utilizing the handicap system - again, not to belabor the point, but so you can quantify the ability of two different dudes who play two different courses).  That's the whole point of the argument that the rest of the world besides you understands/is making in these last couple of pages.  Is it a perfect system?  No... But it works a hell of a lot better than the broscience you're offering.

I definitely disagree.  I have never met a low handicap golfer that his scores stay the same when golf courses get easier.

No one is saying the scores stay the same, but to remain a 1 on an easy course that you are describing, which would correspond to an approximate course rating in the high 60s (short and wide open) would require many sub par rounds.   The "brah" from bethpage can shoot 73s all day long on the easy and not sniff a 1.0.    (73 is less than 79 at Bethpage, but a higher HCP).   So his scores go down, but his cap does not.   This is the reality of the system.   All we are saying is just b/c you can keep a 1 by shooting high scores on a tough course does not AUTOMATICALLY mean you can be a sub-par guy.  It is not that easy.

When i see irons with a spot there i say to myself : "self, that person hits every shot a little thin" and that's about it. The bags that scare me are the ones that have a club or shaft I've never heard of because I know them all, I think

Good observation. One problem....That's a pic of Tiger's 8-iron. You're a bad judge of where the sweet spot is.
That spot is a groove low no matter whose club it is. Hit a ball there and you get that solid but click feeling. Hit it 1 groove higher and get that sensational feeling that cannot be described. Then again, Mo Norman (worlds best ball striker) said you should hit it it a groove low for some reason. I disagree. On the other hand... I have different fingers

That spot is a groove low no matter whose club it is. Hit a ball there and you get that solid but click feeling. Hit it 1 groove higher and get that sensational feeling that cannot be described. Then again, Mo Norman (worlds best ball striker) said you should hit it it a groove low for some reason. I disagree. On the other hand... I have different fingers

It may or may not be low depending where the center of gravity on on that head is.  I know in the past it was very common for touring pros to have the club weighted so the sweet spot was moved lower on the irons since most touring pros miss on the thin side.  I'm not sure if this is still practice or not but given the look of that I would say it is, off the shelf that might be thin but a custom set built for Tiger I'd bet that is the sweet spot.

I get the shivers when I can't tell what type of irons a guy is playing because they are so smeared with lead tape.
