I'm not thinking you have a "giant 10' run up" (don't know you from Adam); just saying that as a designer, I WILL put in smaller / shorter tee pads on some holes to NOT allow "...a full run up...". ...

Maybe it was the course designer's concept of purposefully having "shorter" tee pads to effect a certain (read: NOT as big a run up a you may like) shot off said tee! Live with it (the length of the...

The OP's bag looks "normal", but I'd add at least 1 really over stable driver (so he can fight a BIG headwind). And no a Wraith is not REALLY OS. In addition, that's assuming he throws...

No it's not Chuck. Yours is based on a linear algorithm and it would need a logistic algorithm to be accurate at both ends. If you scored a -17 on a very easy course you'd get a rating of x. If...

Rob,

To answer your question, it probably comes down to what is the ability of the players that will be playing the hole! To have a 100m+ hole with only a 10-15m wide fairway (after that it's OB)...

'How heavy is to(o) heavy' can be answered basically by four words - those are "over the legal limit".

You're always touting how the PDGA has some things better than the USGA; this is NOT one of them (IF the PDGA - not just you - are advocating such). The USGA doesn't measure a ball golf...
