Your missing out on some cool charts...
Kate Pohlig a.k.a. kpohlig
When trying to impress a man on the golf course- "scoopability" is definitely the way to go. I'd suggest not doing what our GoW Kate did; she ended up rolling down a hill.
How old are you and what's your occupation?
55, Assoc. Director, Recreation & Athletics, University of Delaware.
When did you start playing golf and what's your handicap?
About 35 yrs., they don't have a handicap high enough for me :-D
How often do you play?
Now I am playing 9 holes once a week, league starts in June
Tell me about a great shot you've made.
Last week I had my best shot in a long time. It was a putt about 30 feet.
What is your best golf memory?
A colleague at work was driving the cart. He wanted me to show him my "scoopability," - picking up the ball from the cart as it was moving, as he neared my ball, I leaned over, he took a sharp turn and next thing I knew I was out of the cart and rolling down a hill.
What is your "home" course?
Patriots Glen in Elkton, MD
What ball do you play?
If no water, any ball I have with a nice logo on it. If water, the worst looking ball in my bag.
My brother's hand me downs!! He's a decent golfer and changes out clubs often.
Male - the "Shark" Female - Pat Bradley
Favorite course you've played?
Baywood Greens in Millsboro, DE - it is the most beautiful course I've ever been on.
Dream course you've yet to play?
Several courses in Bermuda
Best round ever- and what course?
First time I broke 100, about 20 yrs. ago at Westwood Golf Club in NJ.
What is one aspect of your golf game you would like to improve on in the next year?
I would love to be able to drive the ball farther. That's my goal.
Tell me a story.
I have my best drives when the rest of my foursome is talking. I like to have fun when I golf and prefer to tee off with people not paying attention to me. My worst nightmare is being on the first tee with a long backup of golfers and complete silence.

Now there's a Golfer of the Week I'd really like to play with! The "scoopability" story is great.
It's with recreational golfers who love and enjoy the game (but are not necessarily low handicappers) that we'll be able to grow golf.
I completely agree with you about the silent onlookers! I feel their stares - then it's always shanksville! I like to turn them and say "at ease, folks" or "talk amongst yourselves; don't mind me". I always play better when everyone is laughing and having a good time.
Oh yeah, Go Hens!!

Awesome - I'm with you, I don't mind the conversation at all.
Don't stress about it mate, people don't care as much as you think.
No need to really worry about the on lookers, 9 times out of 10, the are just as scared as you are, and are thinking the same thing. Swing with ease.
I can certainly relate. Scariest experience ever for me was teeing off at Bethpage Black. You end up having about 200 people watching you tee off because of the way it's set up.
One of the groups I play with we call it "Heckel Golf" not only allowed to talk, but you can talk trash directly to the golfer while he is in his back swing, or over a put when ever is least appropriate, just remember: "What goes around comes around" so if you don't talk trash you can play in silence, if you want to talk trash, you will get yours!
