I was under the impression that if the chipping green was crowded, then you should only hit a few balls, around 5 or so, pick them up and go chip again. i was also under the impression that thou shalt not chip on the putting green. and lastly, i had always assumed that one should not take up three putting holes when there are only 10 and there's 8 people on the green.
between last thursday and today, my previous assumptions were shattered. last week, a gentleman took out a sack of about 50 balls, and with complete disregard for the other four people on the chipping green, began to empty out his sack(no pun intended) on about three holes on the green.
today, on the putting green, which is 20 feet from the chipping green btw, i find not one, but two jackasses. one was chipping onto the green using about 20 balls on two holes. the other had about 10 and was dispersing them among three holes. which left 5 holes for the other 6 people.
does this ever happen at your club? have you had a similar experience? if so, here's your chance to vent.
