Is this really detracting from your ability to enjoy the game?

IMO - much ado about nothing.
I'm not saying it's a wonderful rule, but I have no issue with no jump putts and/or falling putts within the circle. Plant your feet on the ground, eye your target and shoot. Please restrict further complications to yourself.

And stable does not mean over-stable

And just because everyone understands what you mean because the words have been said that way for many years before I started playing, doesn't mean that you don't have to change it to my arbitrary definition!

Also, lets switch "parkway" with "driveway" while we're at it.

Excellent point. Never thought about it that way.

This better be sarcasm if you know what's good for you.

I agree it could really be called the opposite of a ball golf green. Which to me is fine. Personally i'd rather be close to the basket no matter what. a friend of mine would much rather land where he can jump putt. He does a very good (legal) jump putt and is better from 35' than 30' due to that.

We would both attack the hole differently. for me I would attack to the closest i could get, with no concern for the "Green" He would attack the hole attempting to land at a spot nearer the basket, but where he could "jump putt".

I just know I enjoy playing courses where i really have to think about my upshot and where it is landing, instead of "as long as i'm within 25' i'm cool and will have a good view." Adds to the strategy, which to me is a fun aspect of the game.

Just think of it as exactly the opposite, and it has the same basic effect. You put the fat part of the green where ball golf would put the narrow part and vice versa. It is a very different concept, but I think it's still worth thinking about how golf greens and pin placements on them are used to increase challenge and variety.

I would rather that they just eliminate it. I don't jump putt and I do think it makes our game look stupid. Many will disagree.

I think overhands look silly, and I can't throw them. Can we ban those too?
