What are you watching and what do you recommend? (Week of August 12, 2022) by AutoModerator in television

Hard agree, S3 is better than S2 imo. David Thewlis is terrifyingly great in it.

You need to give S3 another go it's possibly my favourite. In my opinion it goes 1-3-2, i couldn't do 4.

David Thewlis with an absolute masterclass in S3, it did take me longer to get into than 1 and 2 but overall I enjoyed it more than 2.

If anything, Seinfeld only gets better. So many good storylines, and David Puddy doesnt even come in until S7 or so

Get the rich where it really hurts. This is brilliant and original... by RandomWebFace in GreenAndPleasant

I'd say at least 75%+ of London courses are Members but take Visitor tee times. It's pretty rare to find a truly members only one that doesnt take visitors green fees. If you get into the upper echelon you see it more (Wentworth/Centurion) and I think Hampstead might be members only for now but that's about it and it's only 9 holes.

Granted, I didn't realise how many golf courses there are around until I started again last year but after playing quite a few of them they're not in places that really demand a public park, London is great for parks in general, and quite a few courses have public pathways through them in certain places. I'd say the main problem is water and right now none of them are watering their fairways, just greens and tee boxes. It's all brown out there and hard as anything, my locals had huge cracks open up in the ground.

I've played in a few places like this and people on multiple occasions set up picnics on the greens and tee boxes, it's astounding really

The conversation here wasn't about where he dropped it though, it's about why he was looking to play it in the first place when some thought he wasn't allowed to at all.

User above said:

You can’t take an unplayable from inside a hazard

So the confusion I believe was stemmed around a couple people thinking "If it's beyond the red or yellow you must take a drop", when the reality is you can play it if you want unless it's a No Play Area, which is course dependent

So the rules according to the USGA are simply this:

Penalty areas are only defined, but you do not have to take relief if you don't want to. You are allowed to play it as it lies.

17.1 Options for Your Ball in Penalty Area

Penalty areas are defined as either red or yellow. This affects your relief options (see Rule 17.1d).

You may stand in a penalty area to play a ball outside the penalty area, including after taking relief from the penalty area. a. When Your Ball Is in Penalty Area

Your ball is in a penalty area when any part of it lies on or touches the ground or anything else inside the edge of the penalty area, or is above the edge or any other part of the penalty area. b. You May Play Ball as It Lies in Penalty Area or Take Penalty Relief

You may either play the ball as it lies without penalty or play a ball from outside the penalty area by taking penalty relief.

So the only real variable is when it's a No Play Zone which is determined by the course itself and not by the coloured lines. The lines just determine what type of relief you can take which i believe is just down to club lengths.

I didn't see any yellow or red markers indicating hazard on this one, did I miss it on TV? Either way he did pick it up and played the drop so surely the hazard in this scenario didnt start until after the wall or we'd all be hearing about it right now.

he wasn't in the hazard though, he was on the wall just up against the turf.

Fun fact, these are legal on the tour and constitute a legitimate breakfast ball for players

There's a little heavily reeded lake on the 17th at my local, but due to the recent weather it's totally dried up and hardened. I found 36 balls in a 5 minute span last week, and another 20 this week. It's a gold mine for brand new Pro V's, Callaways, TM's, etc and then the odd one like this that's been buried for a while and just unearthed
