Re: Describe Your Best Shot of the Month

Had my first legit eagle on a par 5 today. Had one over the winter but I was playing the senior tees due to the conditions. Driver/FW to 20 feet and made the putt. Hole is listed as 477 - I'm sure the tees were up a little, but this one is legit. Nice eagle 3. I am also a bit ambivalent when faced ...

Re: Describe Your Best Shot of the Month

It is one day early but I know I will not play today. My last hole at the most recent tournament presented a quandary. I had started out shaky but righted the ship somewhat as the day cruised along. Since we use a shotgun start, my last hole was #12, a 150 yard par 3. I wasn't sure where I stood in ...

Unless I can score some discount or free tix, I may skip it. I suppose I'll see how he does Thursday before making a final decision. Call Team Titleist and casually ask them if they have any promotions associated with the tournament and if so, can you get discount tickets. They might just send you ...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

I play in a lot of our Club's net tournaments. Thursday we played a round at Huntmore. Right out of the gate I managed to double and then bogey the first two holes. My game was shaky at best but I ground out a 78, net 69. It was one of those rounds where one feels like they are shooting 88 and yet i...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Golf is cruel, totally cruel. Agree. There are rounds where nothing goes in and others where everything falls; one plays pretty much the same yet has completely different scores. The weather is going to be beastly at your new home but you will get the last laugh starting in November. p.s. a 78 is d...

Re: 2018 summer support group

I seem to have hit my stride. Scoring is coming around and I occasionally strike the ball well more than once in a row. Of course now I am starting to worry about the inevitable decline in my game that must be just around the corner. Good things never last in golf, hero today, putz tomorrow.

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

Assume Shinnecock was just another private course located in central NJ and never hosted a US Open. You have an opportunity to join. The dues are a bit high because they maintain a set of tees @ 7,500 yards and they tend to set the course up a bit on the difficult side with shaved green approaches, ...

Re: 2018 summer support group

After three weeks of struggling with back problems I finally got back on the course today. 24°C, little bit windy, terrific weather. We could even play through, no flight in view in front of us and a full hole gap between us and the fligh starting after us after three holes. Yay! Anyway, at the 8th...

A roll of lead tape from the online everything mart (aka Amazon).
Going retro with lead tape on the toe (or heel). I like it. Everyone else in the golf world just loosens the dial on the driver shaft or the sole weights and adjusts it. :thumbs

Re: Short Putts

I think we all agree that in a tournament or where something is on the line and there is an agreement to putt out, we all putt out. We have a regular twilight round on Tuesdays. It is virtually a practice round as the other guys move the ball, hit 2nd balls, etc... We try to move fast, jump around, ...

Re: Backstopping/Collusion controversy in pro golf

So when I play in tournaments my decision is based on how quickly the other player tends to play their shots. If I can get the ball and mark it w/o interrupting their routine or getting in their way then I do so. If I know they are quick I stay out of their way unless I know it won't bother them. S...

Agree, walking allows one to interact or wander off. I dislike cart riding except for pretty close buddies because the "other guy" often is not tuned into what I would like in a "partner".

Re: Describe Your Best Shot of the Month

How about a sequence of shots - yesterday shanked a wedge from about 35 yards -hit the green but then rolled off. Chipped the next one in to save par - hate this game. At least you saved par. I hate rolling in an 80 footer or chipping in for an "8". Yes, an "8" is better than a "9" but really, who ...

Summer?? We played Friday on the 1st of June. High temperature for the day was 56 degrees. It was 50 when we teed off into the teeth of a 15 mph breeze. I wore a sock hat, sweater and rain jacket all day. Some of the guys had on insulated winter golf gloves We had better weather in February. :fk
