    Pitching chipping and the flop are very hard for me.(Of course i am not good at it ) Cannot get the hang of it at all. I do agree with using wedge on the green and it should not be allowed. After all it is called a putting green. I say learn to putt !!!

    First time some one uses a club other than a putter(unless obstructed) I politely forfeit the match.Anyone can get it close using wedges on the green so while the other golfers are putting on the green these players are getting it next to the hole.

    So, someone following the official rules of golf and of WGT and doing no harm to anyone is chastised for not following YOUR rules?

    Disturbing...

    Politely forfeiting is not chastising.

    Nothing disturbing about it all. It's just a preference the other player has. Let's not read into things that are not there.

    More like Cheating the other players which yes I feel is very disturbing.

    This topic has been discussed before, it was ridiculous then, and it still is.  Using a wedge on the green isn't against the rules, so therefore it isn't cheating. No matter what your ideas are. BTW, politely forfeiting, is quitting, no matter how you say it, you're saying "I'm a quitter" . Either learn, and use the shot, or accept someone using it, but don't waste other people's time by quitting on them,  that just poor form!!!!

    Rather than that, most players use putting as its the more safer and reliable option compared to the lofted clubs. There's a reason only a few youtube clips of those exist (usually captioned as something incredible as they are rare for a reason)

    It's not illegal

    , The PGA rules allow the pitch shot on the green. Therefore, it's not cheating.Look it up.

    That would be "no."

    And even though I don't think that quitting a game is chastising a person, I think it's fairly lame to quit a game simply because the player used a wedge on the green.
