    Wista minimum bellows extension question

    What's a girl to do when she sees that her man can't get out of His way?

    She is in her computer watching him bumble along. She is reading Figures on a screen screen.

    It is Jan. 12. It's a Friday-afternoon ride on the train Taking her man right out of town down the street, he will be home shortly.

    Crystol Springer remembers. She remembers what her man Mike Before leaving for the Touchstone Energy Tucson Open said.

    The PGA Tour had given a brand new computer/toy to players, a bit Magical box named Palm VIIx. Mike said to his wife,"Perhaps Friday afternoon, it is possible to email me and inform me what the cut is likely to be."

    The Palm devices make such correspondence possible. You are in Fresno, your husband is so you type a message, in a speech, hit SEND, and your words are in the air waiting to be retrieved . . . Your own passenger, that in that instant includes two holes to play and finds himself idling on the tee.

    Now he's wondering, what is the cut likely to be? Here Mike Remembers what he advised Crystol.

    So he pulls the toy out of the golf purse, checks his Email, and downloads four from friends saying hello, five messages, one from his spouse.

    The email of crystol reports that the three bogeys place Mike over the Cut on line, possibly.

    Then she adds, by means of marital encouragement,"Better get Your behind going ."

    What the rules say about'advice'

    We are going to reach the happy denouement of this Springer saga. First Let us turn to the Rules of Golf, where"advice" is defined as"any counsel or suggestion which could influence a player in determining his play, the choice of a club or the way of creating a stroke."

    The book further insists that such advice could be obtained "only from his partner or either of their caddies."

    Could it be OK for a husband on an Arizona path to get advice Out of his spouse in California? Unexpectedly, questions that are high-tech are everywhere in golf. Crystol Cyber Chat & the Mike is one case of the game's full embrace of the Information Age.

    Mobile phones are old hat. They long have been a crime against Civility so on a golf course, and there's yet hope for calls during 32, that a right-thinking legislature will approve execution by injection as proper punishment.

    The telephones turn out to be the vanguard of The 21st century into golf. Coming soon to a class near you: every man, woman and child carrying not just a mobile phone but pager, not just a pager however a Palm, not just a Palm but a different magic box called the SkyGolf GPS, a global positioning system partnered with a Palm V that provides yardages and a background of each shot you have ever struck.

    We have become info addicts. We are wired six ways to Sunday. We are mainlining databytes. We're addicted and we want our fix today. Not in an hour, not on the 11 o'clock news. Now.

    We want to know everything there is to understand and we need a little Magic box to tell it us all and heaven help us if our magic-box batteries go dead since then we will not understand anything and will have lost the capability to find it out.

    It's now possible to learn the space from here to this third Palm tree by referring to some box that is magic rather than by keenly. Is such referral lawful?

    In the 1996 Evian Masters in France, LPGA celebrity Laura Davies By yanking a TV Amused herself. She watched England play Spain in a soccer game. Would it be OK, one wonders, to see your own tournament and in the performing receive information?

    For that matter, while walking down a fairway, you could carry At the tee a video of your gawdawful swing on a conversation with your swing coach through which he could play back and critique. Legal?

    "Hell, no, you can not do this," says PGA Tour tournament director Mark Russell.

    Otherwise, who knows what's OK? The game's discombobulated Rules-makers are scrambling to catch up with today's high-tech possibilities.

    "If you want to watch a videotape of Hogan's Five Fundamentals while you're playing, that's not OK," says Jeff Hall, a U.S. Golf Association assistant manager for the Rules of Golf. "But if you bring the book and read it, then OK."

    To take advantage of our societal lust for advice, the PGA Tour created what it calls ShotLink, transmit and a platform designed to record information on each shot by every participant. To quote a media release:"Included are... data on the lie (good, poor ), the club hit, the stance (uphill, downhill or sidehill), location (fairway, rough, green or bunker), whether a penalty is involved, and the time of day every shot is struck, which is important for video logging and relocating data. Walking scorers also transmit the score of each player on each hole when the hole is completed."

    Club choices are reported by caddies. Laser range-finders measure Distances the nearest inch greens, in fairways to the nearest foot. The information is transmitted to network TV, intranet websites, onsite leader boards, closed-circuit TV and PGA Tour headquarters, which then employs the data on its site and as the infrastructure to get an interactive online game called"Play Against the Pros."

    Here one wonders about this extracurricular folderol. What Would Ben Hogan believe?

    He would agree with caddie Cayce Kerr, who, when asked about ShotLink, says,"First time somebody comes into my participant's office, that person gets inhaled "

    Translation: The veteran caddie of 15 seasons considers ShotLink Has an erosion of integrity, flaws, one of them the diversion of player and caddie, but more importantly. He supplies a caddies committee statement on ShotLink that states..."If things go as planned, a player witha late- weekend tee time can observe the result of every shot played until he tees off.

    "We think this produces quite an unbalanced competitive Advantage for this player. The ShotLink information will be comprehensive and complicated than that accessible through television coverage as explained to us. Does this undermine the integrity of this game"

    Good question, and it is the Type of going-to-the-heart-of-golf Question that the USGA and the Royal and Ancient Golf Club must face. "You will find things of confusion," the USGA's Hall admits.

    For Example, he says, it illegal to use a global Positioning apparatus during play. Yet many centers have provided the GPS devices on carts, and the USGA accepts scores from those places for handicap purposes--that is the very distinction between"aggressive" golf and"recreational" golf that the USGA does not make for, say,"nonconforming" clubs.

    But wait. What's really bad about a device advising on space? Isn't it just a method of pacing off the yardage?

    "We already mark sprinkler heads and Place in 150-yard Mark," Hall says. "And also the USGA does want to be a leader, not a follower. So we say,'OK, we've held the high ground. Let us use GPS but limit its capabilities'"

    A GPS program can produce a Record of every distance and each shot. That info could be massaged to produce preshot directions, such as,"Hey, dummy, place the 9-iron back. By 142, it is an 8 to you."

    Hall sighs. "When it moves beyond space to club Selection, we're clearly uninterested in that."

    But the tour Mark Russell says the techno mumbo jumbo Will not change the game's ultimate truth:"You have still gotta putt the ball to the hole."

    Springer gets his'supporting' moving

    In the dark ages, when people actually spoke to each other Rather than swap e-mail, Mike Springer may have utilized his time to ask a TV sound man to ask the boys.

    But this time, Springer read Crystol's guidance: Better get your Behind moving.

    He did. Having 8-iron and 3-wood chip-in from 35 feet, a driveway, '' he Made eagle.

    On his hole, his 5-wood tee shot went to water, from Which he dropped and place a 7-iron to five feet and made the putt for a par. He would earn $ 5,850 and left the cut by a shot.

    "And as I am walking down the 17th fairway," he states, "I am on the Palm trading stocks. 'Take the profit,' I tell it."

    The next week, the green sheet of advice of the tour to players Declared what's become known as"the Mike Springer rule"

    Re: Wista minimum bellows extension question

    No idea about the 47mm but I use my Wista with a 75 SWD. It gets difficult to use rise because the knob to turn is inside the camera shell. So often it is a bit iterating between moving the lens forward, shift, focus again but it can be done. I wouldn't use anything needing an even smaller lens-film distance unless you'll never use movements.
