Golf Under Socialism


Golfers with handicaps:

  • below 10 will have their green fees increased by 35% – between 11 and 18 will see no increase in green fees
  • above 18 will play for free and even get a check from the club/course played.

The $ amount put in for bets will be as follows:

  • for handicaps below 10 an additional $10 -between 11 and 18 no additional amount
  • above 18 you will receive the total amount in the pot and you do not even have to play.

The term “gimme” putt will be changed to “entitlement” and will be used as follows:

  • handicaps below 10, no entitlements
  • handicaps above 11 to 17, entitlements for putter length putts handicaps above 18, if on green, no need to ever putt, just pick it up.

These entitlements are intended to bring about fairness in scoring so that the final scores of all players will be about the same. In addition, a Player will be limited to a max of one birdie and/or six pars. Any excess must be given to those fellow players who have not yet scored a birdie or par. Only after all players have received a birdie or par from the player making the birdie or par, can that Player begin to count his score again.

The current USGA handicap system will be used for the above purposes but the term ‘net score’ will be available only for scoring those players with handicaps 18 and above. This is intended to ‘redistribute’ the success of winning by making sure that in every competition the above 18 handicap players will post only ‘net score’ against every other player’s gross score.

These new Rules are intended to CHANGE the game of golf. Golf must be about Fairness Only. It should have nothing to do with Ability.

I’m glad Obama bowls…

    Used to love playing tennis, but my knees can’t take the pounding anymore.

    Besides, as long as Obama stays away from playing golf, I can stand on the street corner holding a sign that says “Will Golf For Food.”

    Z – I’m waiting for such socialistic views to be applied to professional sports. Can you imaging that the worst football team winning the Superbowl (Hey!! That means Detroit has a shot under this plan!!)

    Actually, I see much the same thought process when applied to children’s sports. Winning is meaningless when the spirit of competition is watered down. Losing builds character just as much as winning if sportsmanship is emphasized while trying to do your best instead of “feel-good” policies for half-ass attempts.
