Could you clarify the things that were wrong? I would like to have the right information.

Isn't that the video where he claims that you have to have both feet down behind your lie to demonstrate balance? The rules committee has ruled otherwise.

Bingo. That's the most blatant example. Feldberg has a habit of claiming authority he doesn't really possess.

Best advice regarding his video is to take to heart the stuff he says about the mechanics of throwing/putting (IMO, he is good at that), but double check anything rules related against the actual text of the rule book. Of course, the latter part applies for any instance in which someone trying to tell you something about the rule book. Only way to assure yourself you have good info is to go to the source.

I can't bring myself to call falling putts. I see it, but I don't care. This is an honor game. If the "perpetrator" can live with it, so can I.

I tell myself that I can win anyway. Lately, I've been successful.

Bottom line: It doesn't really matter to me. It's more fun to accept it and play than it is to argue. The object of this game is to have fun. At least it is for me.

As for me, I putt better from a firm stance on both feet. An easily repeatable motion from a firm foundation. If someone wants to do a "dance step" every time they putt, fine. The slightest of injuries will mess it all up for them, and all of us old guys get injured.

That's a nice thought. The rest of us playing on other cards where the rules are enforced are a bit annoyed about you giving an advantage to the folks on your card though. It's not just you that he's competing against.
