FootGolf is a combination of the popular sports of soccer and golf. The game is played with a regulation #5 soccer ball at a golf course facility on shortened holes with 21-inch diameter cups. The rules largely correspond to the rules of golf. FootGolf as a game is played throughout the world in many different forms, but as a sport it is regulated by the Federation for International FootGolf (FIFG).

2023.05.29 07:04 maallyn Ski To Sea Observations From Zuanich

I feel that I should give you what I have observed as a volunteer at the Ski to Sea's Kayak start point at our beautiful Zuanich Park.
I was assigned to the Kayak launch dock and ramp, helping kayaker's getting into their boats at dockside.
Things went fine at the start, although the wind was very strong and kayakers had to paddel into the wind head on after they round the end of the breakwater adjacent to the public dock (this, by the way, is the dock where the Bellingham Yacht Club has their youth boat program boats stored. It's the only dock without a locked gate at the foot of the ramp).
Then things got real busy at about 3:30 to 4 PM; there were four of us volunteers helping with the kayaks.
Then suddenly I had to help a large power boat into the dock so tht they can off load a kayak that had capsized on the route.
Five minutes later, another power boat came to the dock and I assisted that one as well (getting a good work-out trying to muscle these boats into position to let them unload a kayak.
This went on for about three to four kayaks.
Things got real hectic where I ended up both helping a kayaker into the water as well as trying to manuver the lines for yet another power boat.
After nearly getting myself knocked into the water while trying to cleat down the line of a power boat because two people carrying a kayak back up the ramp bumped into me. I had to lie down on the dock so not to get pushed into the water.
When I was able to get back up, I noticed that kayaks were starting to be carried up the ramp off the dock and back up to the shore.
About five minutes later, no kayaks were being carried down the ramp; only kayaks were being carried up to ramp.
Soon, I had the entire dock to myself and one other volunteer who looked confused. I looked up and noticed one of the officials blocking the ramp. That officiel then waved up to come back up the ramp and get off the dock.
They explained to me that they had decided to stop the event because about 45 kayakers were capsized due to the very strong windes that were getting even stronger (about 4 PM, which is normal for these waters on a southwest wind day).
The event got cut off at about 4 PM; no kayakers being allowed into the water and an automatic team disqualification if anyone tried to launch a kayak after this point in time.
We volunteer were thanked and relieved of duty.
I stayed on to help clean up (as I usually do).
Very interesting. They tell me that the event had never been cut short once it started. Some past events were put onto short route before being started, but never stopped in mid stride.
Every one stayed in hish spirits throughout. Very well behaved!!
I Love You All!

2023.05.29 06:49 Fiorentina500 Could Philippines develop a sports culture like I. Europe?

I watch soccer or football when I can like 3-4 times a month. I’m stilll more of basketball guy, but watching football leagues like EPL or researching Serie A you just get enamored by the history and culture a sports club/team means. I watched Lutron town get promoted to the premier league but seeing the atmosphere in that games was euphoric. Of course you probably can’t pull off a league or system as massive like this in the Philippines or do something 100% similar, but you think it would be great if sports leagues whether basketball or football can try to promote more local teams and culture. I mean with PBA it seems fans are getting annoyed with the cringe corporate influence of the league and while I am a fil-am speaking, watching highlights it seems many games sometimes are empty or just Bland unless it’s someone like Ginebra. I’m not saying remove teams like Ginebra but having more local teams in cities like Cebu, Iloilo, Davao, etc. Have more teams within areas with strong culture like Illocos, Negros, Visayas, etc. I know it is hard to implement in a sense considering the economic situation and all that, but even if the quality of stadiums aren’t great, having more teams that actually mean something is something this country needs. I know there are more important things in life and issues with this beautiful but I watch sports like football and sometimes feel something like a club can be a a simple way to cherish life when it’s up and down. For example, my parents are from Nueva Ejicia, Cabanatuan, be great to see a team in that region. It’s like in football with even smaller clubs. I think this type of culture fits the Philippines and its culture. I see it in the football league with teams like Kaya but it’s still small and very commercialized in a sense.

2023.05.29 06:42 ScuderiaRetardi Had my first ever lesson today. Wow... What a remarkable difference from 90 minutes.

I went to my first lesson today.
I must say, it's remarkable how much it can change your golf game. I played a round immediately after at 8:30am to reinforce what I learned across all my clubs and my posture at address.
Wow... Just wow. It felt a little unnatural when I first learned it, but after a single round and seeing the results from the changes it's remarkable how much my game improved. I scored 9 better than my previous best score. My drives and iron shots have always been alright but after some posture changes I'm hitting an extra 15yds and way, way more consistent flight paths. I could usually get in the realm of fairway or what I'll graciously call "fairway adjacent", but occasionally would be further to the right or left when I intended to play the opposite side of the fairway. Postural corrections fixed that issue entirely today. Not once in 18 holes.
Distance control and consistency with wedges was one of my major issues. I still have some issues with that in longer range wedge shots, but the vast majority of my issues with this were fixed.
Definitely excited to get another lesson. I'd absolutely recommend it if you can afford it.

2023.05.29 06:36 NoGimmiesNL Stealth Bomber Take

Anyone remember the TaylorMade Gapr? No? Most likely because it was TaylorMade’s worst performing club of all time. Briefly used by Tiger himself the Gapr was meant to bridge the “gap” between your irons and woods. Mix in some terrible aesthetics, and confusing marketing, you equate to their worst performing club of all time. Now this time around they took a very, very, different approach, with absolutely stunning aesthetics, limited availability, and clever marketing, the new “Stealth Bomber” was done the right way. Lofted at 17 degrees, this is designed to be used off the tee, a lower flighted option to deal with wind. Now is TaylorMade going to make iron covers cool? Probably not, but they gave it a real shot with the war plane theme. Now if you want one of these I’m sorry to inform you they’re already sold out, maybe look for it in the trade-in section of your local golf shop after 80% of people realize they aren’t good enough to hit this thing.

2023.05.29 06:13 Longjumping-Record-9 Burning bridges 28M - 25F

I have two stories of women who I was friends with who stopped talking to me after I tried to be more than friends.
The first story is about a girl who I'll call B. B was an intern at the company I worked at. She was smart, pretty, and well spoken. I was immediately attracted to her, but I decided not to do anything about it since I was a senior colleague and later her manager.
A year passed and she quit the company to go work somewhere else. I quit to start a job in a new country.
I met up with B a year when I was visiting the city she worked in. We had a wonderful date, drank beers, and just started walking. After an hour of walking and talking, we end up at her place. She invited me in and she started making tea. I'm very nervous at this time, it's been three years since I was in a relationship and I was super anxious. We go to her room and start dancing. A while later she tells me she's poly, but I fail to understand what she means. I just didn't have it in me to make a move. After an hour in her room, I decide to book a cab and go home.
A week later, I try to meet her up again. However, things get weird. She tells me nothing is going to happen between us. I tell her I just want to see her. I go over to her place and take her up to the terrace. We start looking at the stars and I make a move. We're making out on her terrace. We keep chilling for an hour before heading down to her room. I start to kiss her and try to take her shirt off. She stops me and says nothing is happening. We continue to make out and talk for a bit and an hour later I leave.
She says she's going to the park the next morning and I should join her. But I had a flight later in the afternoon so I said I'll think about it. I decide not to show up at the park next day. And I leave the country later that night.
Somehow, she decided to block me and cut me off completely after this happened.
Years layer, I tried reaching out to her via social media, but I never heard back, and later noticed that she blocked me on social media as well. She still held.a grudge. I tried apologizing but I wasn't sure what I should be apologizing for.
The second story was a girl I met through a networking event and became friends. She was in her late 20s and hand been through a divorce. I hung out with her and some friends four times and we got along quite well. Sometime over the few months of meeting her, I saw her on a dating app which made me realize she's open to dating. One day she decided to come hangout with me by herself and I decided to make it a date. We went out and got food. I was very flirty with her. I even bought her a small cactus at a shop. We got dinner and she decided to head home. I thought it went great.
Except, an hour after she reached home, she paid me back for the cactus with the message "friends don't but each other cactii". She also decided to block me with no explanation. I tried messaging her but she's fully blocked me.
I'm left wondering why this happened. In both cases, I tried to go from being friends to more than friends and got blocked with no warning. What is the takeaway from these stories?

2023.05.29 06:10 AniVaniHere Cops in PB Sunday around 8 pm.

There were lots of cops on Garnett. I saw a couple of cop cars park on Garnett and Mission quickly, then some cops got out and ran towards Shore Club or Ale house. There were more cop cars with lights and sirens on heading towards the area. Anyone know what was going on? I was heading south on Mission, turning left on to Garnett, when I saw all the cops. We had been at Open Bar (eew) right before with some friends. Hoping there wasn’t a shooting or anything.

At the park today. Dogs are allowed, must be leashed per park rules/signage. Place is busy with people walking the trail loop, playing disc golf, and unfortunately, it's a very popular place for people to walk their dogs. As we're making the loop, I point out to my husband the man & woman that I've seen letting their dogs run loose before; they're back at it again in the usual spot. The spot they're loose at is where the disc golf basket goal is for that hole. There are groups of people that are having to play through with them being in the way, and then have to try and get by these loose dogs to get to the next tee.
The previous times I've seen this couple, I was with my elderly friend and didn't want to make a scene or upset her (she doesn't like confrontation); we also didn't cross paths with the owners. Since I was with my husband, I didn't gaf, and neither does he. We're wrapping up our walk, heading back to the car. The couple has finally leashed their dogs; she's walking in our direction, with the man on his bike way ahead of her. My husband wanted to show me one of the specific signs that said there was a $200 fine for violating the leash-law in the park. As we're reading it, the woman was walking past us, so I pointed to the sign & said (to my husband, but for her to hear): Oh, you mean the sign that says dogs aren't allowed off-leash here? That sign!?! She didn't say anything, but I made it a point to stare right at her, so it was all pretty obvious. I just assume that they're illiterate, or willfully ignorant. Or think they're the exception. She finally speaks up and asks me, Does it bother you? Yes, it does, I say. Mind your own business, is her retort. She gets a Piss off! as I'm getting into the car, leaving the door open. She's still talking at me as she goes by, so to get her attention, I looked directly at her to say: Hey, lady.. f**\* you, and slammed the door closed. Husband got in and we left.
No point to this anecdote other than to share that it felt right to speak up. Don't care if it hurt her feelings, if it was wrong to cuss at her, or if I was rude to say what I did.

2023.05.29 05:24 sfgirlmary Monday meeting of the Sober People Getting Shit Done Club

When I was drinking, I did shit (meaning, nothing). In contrast, now that I’m a non-drinker, I’m getting shit done. In fact, productivity has become one of my favorite parts of being sober.
Has this been true for you, too? Without the endless cycle of wasting time while drinking followed by recovering from a hangover, do you find yourself with extra hours in the day to do constructive things, such as finally finishing that book you’ve been reading or tackling that mess in the garage? If so, I invite you to join the Sober People Getting Shit Done Club.
In order to be a member of this club, you must do three things:
  1. Get something done.
  2. Be sober while doing it.
  3. Tell us about it.
I’ll go first: Before I quit drinking, I hated being on an airplane, because I couldn’t binge drink as I liked to. I would be hyper-focused on drinking as much as possible before getting onto the plane, and then I’d “white-knuckle” it through the flight by drinking only as much as much as the airline would allow. But now that I’m sober, I don’t mind traveling by plane at all.
This past week, I took a nonstop, overnight flight from San Francisco to Tampa, where I just got on, read for a little bit, sipped some seltzer, and then took a nap. One minute I’m in California, getting my medical issues taken care of, the next minute I’m in Florida, helping my 93-year-old mother take care of hers. I can hop across the country without missing a beat—because I’m a Sober Person Getting Shit Done!
If you are sober and have been getting shit done—whether it’s a big thing like rebuilding the engine of an old motorcycle or a small thing like making that long overdue phone call to your grandmother—I want to hear all about it!

2023.05.29 05:21 MeowTheRainbowX Cancellation of the planned Jones Valley apartment complex and my (very long) thoughts

For those who haven't heard, the developer of a planned housing project in the Jones Valley area, a version of which was voted on and approved by residents back in 2012, has decided to cancel it due to recent backlash. The residents are mad because the original plans gave them the impression that there would be single-family homes or townhomes, but it turned into 220 apartment units.
The backlash materialized almost 3 months ago when the final version of the plan was approved by a slim majority, well after the public hearing stage. Regardless, a unified group of locals interrupted to make themselves heard. The majority opinion was that the developer was allowed to make changes to their plans as long as they followed the rules agreed upon in 2012, and they apparently did. I can't gather why the other commissioners dissented besides sympathizing with the protestors.
Personally, I don't understand what the developer has to gain from caving to public backlash when their finalized plans had already been approved for months. Can someone more experienced enlighten me on this?
My biggest takeaway is that I'm worried about housing prices in the Huntsville area. We're supposed to be a growing city, yet we let NIMBYs keep housing from being built. Rents and home prices in the Rocket City have been, well, rocketing upward. It could certainly be worse, but I fear that we're going the way of Silicon Valley or Austin, even if we're not as far along.
There are a lot of existing homeowners who would have you believe that increasing house prices are a good thing. This, on its face, is inconsiderate of anyone trying to buy in, making home ownership unattainable for more and more young adults, together with rising rents. The projects like the one canceled could alleviate this.
Even if you're cold and heartless, though, know that not even existing homeowners benefit. If they need to buy new houses, they'll find that virtually everywhere else in the city, even the entire country, has gotten expensive by about the same amount. If anything, the fact that Huntsville is still cheap and commutable by tech hub standards is attracting tech workers, getting them to buy up our single-family homes or rent our upscale apartments. Unless one can find a Huntsville's Huntsville to move to, the added list price only serves to make it harder for others to buy in.
Never mind the cases when the home values don't decrease at all when apartments are added nearby. I wonder if NIMBYs are projecting their classist preferences onto the rest of the market.
Now, I've seen people online echo sentiments like "Don't move here! We're full!" Given that increased traffic was one of the main reasons for the protest (and the most valid one in my opinion), I think the protestors are in a similar mindset. Even though this individual project would be a drop in the bucket compared to the thousands of regular users Carl T Jones Dr, traffic has been getting worse all over the Huntsville area as it has grown. Enough similar projects would contribute to this trend.
However, the increase in traffic is due to vehicle miles traveled, not population. Almost all developments in the US since World War II, especially in places like Jones Valley, are built with the expectation that everyone will drive everywhere, so everyone does. They're built to discourage through traffic, but they necessitate that everyone in the neighborhood adds to said traffic, just elsewhere. Here's a great video elaborating on the issue.
Since Huntsville tends to build apartments with ample parking and refuse to connect them to acceptable public transit, every new unit adds to the problem in much the same way. However, the proposed area, on the northeast corner of Garth and Carl T Jones, is right along the #6 bus route. This would be convenient if not for the fact that, like most of Huntsville's other bus lines, it ran only once an hour. This is a level of inconvenience that we would never accept for drivers, not even close.
Still, solving Huntsville's public transit system is a much bigger and more abstract cause than opposing a single housing development. Thus, I understand why the residents in Jones Valley would see the development as their enemy. After all, while there are steps we can take that would lead to ridership very quickly (more frequency, more and longer lines, more transfer nodes, more sidewalks and safer crossings near stops), it won't reach its full potential until development patterns around the bus stops change fairly radically.
However, even if the bus system failed to alleviate the added traffic, I'm not convinced that it would have mattered much. The difference between a denser and less dense development, within the ground rules that residents agreed to, shouldn't be perceived as a threat. The fact is that Huntsville needs housing. If not now, when? If not here, where?
TL;DR We need to build more housing in the Huntsville area so that we can prioritize the finances of folks trying to afford homes over the paranoia and very mild discomfort of current homeowners. The only way to solve traffic is to build viable alternatives to driving, which we don't have.

2023.05.29 05:15 BrendanG32 I have completely forgot how to swing a golf club. Haven’t hit a pure iron shot in over a year. (Please help)

I learned how to golf during the beginning of the pandemic (Yes I know i’m new). I grew up playing baseball and struggled for the first few weeks learning how to swing a golf club. Once I got the hang of it, I started playing rounds with my family and friends and consistently shot around 100 (good for me). I had no problems hitting all my irons for the most part but have always had a slice in my driver swing. Even with that, I had no problems playing casual rounds of golf. A little over a year ago, I went into a round with my friend and noticed that I could not hit an iron shot for my life. All 18 holes were pure hell and the ball would be duffed to the right on every swing. Ever since that one round, I feel as if I have completely lost all confidence and my swing. Every iron shot I have hit from then is shanked weakly to the right. I have seriously thought about quitting the sport entirely and have no clue what to do. I have listened to a lot of advice from others and even got a lesson to try and fix my issues. To this day, I still cannot figure out how to hit a golf shot. I don’t know if it’s all in my head or I have some sort of fundamental issues with how I learned how to swing but i’m desperate for some help. I feel like i’m going to lose my mind hitting the same shot over and over. I’m running out of options and really don’t want to quit the game. Any advice?

2023.05.29 05:03 Skwigle Bing vs ChatHPT 3.5 for travel advice

Just for fun, I asked the exact same question to both and was surprised at just how bad Bing's answer was. It was astoundingly bad considering it uses gpt 4.
My question: "what is there to do in Cebu?"
ChatGPT 3.5's answer:
Cebu, a province in the Philippines, offers a wide range of activities and attractions for visitors. Here are some popular things to do in Cebu:
1. Visit historical landmarks: Explore the historical sites in Cebu City, such as Magellan's Cross, Basilica Minore del Santo Niño, Fort San Pedro, and Colon Street—the oldest street in the Philippines.
2. Island hopping: Cebu is surrounded by beautiful islands. Take a boat tour and visit popular destinations like Mactan Island, Malapascua Island, Bantayan Island, and Camotes Islands. Enjoy pristine beaches, snorkeling, diving, and relaxing in these tropical paradises.
3. Swim with whale sharks: Head to Oslob, located in the southern part of Cebu, and experience swimming alongside gentle whale sharks. It's an incredible opportunity to get up close with these majestic creatures.
4. Explore Kawasan Falls: Located in Badian, Kawasan Falls is a breathtaking three-tiered waterfall. Enjoy swimming in the crystal-clear turquoise waters, bamboo rafting, and canyoneering through the nearby rivers and cliffs.
5. Discover Moalboal: Known for its stunning marine life, Moalboal offers fantastic snorkeling and diving opportunities. Don't miss the famous Sardine Run, where you can witness a massive school of sardines.
6. Take a trip to Sumilon Island: Visit Sumilon Island, known for its white sandy beaches and crystal-clear waters. Snorkel or dive in the marine sanctuary, go kayaking, or simply relax and enjoy the island's beauty.
7. Enjoy local cuisine: Cebu is renowned for its delicious food. Indulge in mouthwatering dishes like lechon (roasted pig), seafood, danggit (dried fish), and sutukil (a local dining experience where you choose fresh seafood, which is then cooked to your preference).
8. Visit Taoist Temple: Situated in the Beverly Hills area of Cebu City, the Taoist Temple is a serene and beautiful place to explore. It offers panoramic views of the city and provides insights into Taoist beliefs.
9. Shop at Carbon Market: Dive into Cebu's bustling local scene at Carbon Market, one of the largest public markets in the city. It's an excellent place to shop for fresh produce, local handicrafts, and souvenirs.
10. Enjoy nightlife in Cebu City: Explore the vibrant nightlife in Cebu City, particularly around Mango Avenue and the IT Park area. Find bars, clubs, live music venues, and a wide variety of entertainment options.
These are just a few of the many things you can do in Cebu. The province has much more to offer, so make sure to explore and discover its hidden gems during your visit.
Bing's answer:
Cebu is a beautiful place with many things to do. You can visit Fort San Pedro which is a military defense structure built by Spanish conquistador, Miguel López de Legazpi in 1565². You can also visit the Taoist Temple which is a multi-tiered temple built by Cebu's Chinese community in 1972³. If you're into diving and snorkeling, Moalboal is one of the best places to visit in Cebu for divers and snorkelers. Here you can explore colorful coral and swim with exotic fish in crystal clear turquoise waters⁴.
Nothing about Kawasan Falls or Oslob's whale sharks, and even though it mentioned Moalboal, there's nothing about one of its most popular attraction, the sardine run.
Neither mentioned Bohol nearby, which was a bit surprising, too.

Durban, South Africa Security Officers arrest three knife-armed-subjects attempting to burgle businesses, hands over subjects to local police
Max Naicker, operations manager of Blue Security, said that while patrolling the Doonside area, their armed response officer spotted a suspicious vehicle parked in a pathway between shopping centres.
“The officer noticed a lot of movement from a distance and called for backup from Blue’s Community Crime Prevention Unit and other armed response officers while keeping a close eye on the vehicle.
Naicker said the suspects exited the vehicle and jumped over a gate into one of the businesses.
He said Blue Security’s tactical and armed response teams moved in and apprehended the three suspects.
Their vehicle was found to have false registration plates and was handed over to eManzimtoti SAPS (South African Police Service) for further investigation, while the three suspects were taken in on various charges related to vehicle fraud, possession of state property and investigation into previous housebreakings.
Naicker said that the incident was a testament to their commitment to pro-actively ensuring the safety of communities.
Note: To those who are not good at geography, South Africa 🇿🇦 is an actual nation-state, in which this even took place. Africa itself is not a whole country, it is a continent, but not a whole nation.
