Ok golfers 2 for off the first tee or not
« on: June 06, 2006, 10:37:10 pm »

Is there ever a reason for it.   So many golfers do it.

only if you didnt hit balls beforehand... which you should, but cant necessarily always do.

The guys I play with do it because we're too lazy to get there ahead of time.  Usually I take my first because if I don't my second is awful.  Pressure or something.

unless i am in a tourny i take 2 off the first. most of the time (especially weekdays) my group heads from the office, grab some brew and right to the first tee. if i can make it thru the 4th hole @ 1 or 2 over it's usually a good day as my back is getting loose and the swing lube is starting to work :)

ok here is the curve ball,  because I do rush out after work and I dont take two myself.  What if there are groups waiting behind your group.   Still take two.

I'm guilty of this. I'm not a great golfer by any means to begin with, but am getting better all the time. Since I'm a lefty, I get in trouble if I even slightly slice my tee shot at #1 at PV. As you know, if you are left, you F'eft. I take two on all kinds of shots if no other groups or players are directly behind me.

If my first sux off the tee, then I generally hit another.... I'm not on tour....... I always thought it was understood.....

Honestly the reason I is because I am to lazy to chase down the other golf ball not for any scoring reason.   Just wanted to hear what the world thought of it.   I will say this I play PVAC in under 3 hours on the weekend morning pretty regularly and if we can after work it mean I can get in 18.

Anyone in our group in entitled to 2 of the first tee but must suffer the shame that is sure to follow with the "only women and p----ies take two off the tee!"  Of course "shame" is non-fattening and free while a good drive could lead to some major cash rewards (50 cent skins plus birdies double it) so it's a no brainer.   But after that, if you don't want to play it from that lie, shouldn't have hit it there in the first place and don't dare put your grimy hands on the ball till it's on the green.   We have a good group and been together for years.  If you have thin skin, might be a little rough on you.
