I still stand in place to drive. I'll work on power after I get my form and accuracy working. But it sucks to have no distance. I actually took to putting quicker. I am still utterly horrible...

How long did it take you?

When you started playing, how long did it take you to feel like you were at least good enough to not look like you were brand new?

It is a humbling game when you are starting out.

You could have tried talking to him in a warm and civil way.


And if there are charges and they stick, it could be a lot more than an afternoon in jail. Also, you run the risk of a lifetime ban...

Well, the person who buys it is in lawful possession of it. Even if someone has a just claim to it. That is for a court to decide.

If you see someone with *your* disc, even if you think it is...

Again, if the guy came into lawful possession of the discs (he was given them, bought them or found them). He will never meet the elements of any crime.

The second you give me a reason why you took it, you admit that you took it. Which is the criminal end of this. If you actually own it or not is a civil issue.
