Re: 2018 Winter Season Support Group

During our one day reprieve, I thought about giving it a go at the local City executive course. All the snow cover was mostly gone and they allow fools hardy golfers play year round on the "flat seven" that runs along the river and has few trees. We walked my home course, instead. There were a numbe...

Re: Breaking 80: What it means to you

If one is playing a game, there should be a measure of whether one is playing the game well or not. For me, the level of 80 represents an arbitrary "good/not good" dividing line. If I were a pro, possibly "par" would be the line. I need a measuring stick and for my feeble game, 80 works.

I have room in my group for tomorrow's tee time at 11:20 as well as the rest of the days. Supposed to be near 60* tomorrow. I checked MapQuest. It s...

While on the Subject of Travelin' Golf

How far have you driven for a single round of golf, round trip? Time & miles, if one recalls the details. This past summer I have a long local trip caused by traffic. 4 hours round trip. Distance was not that much of an issue, maybe 120 miles or so round trip. I think 190 miles round trip is about t...

Everything is white here in the Frigid Mitten. A few days of 40+ degrees would clean the little covering up but it is not going to happen for at least 10 days.

Re: How far do you have to travel to your home course?

5-10 minutes to a couple courses. I rarely travel more than 30 minutes (one way) unless it is a tournament. The other day I was driving to the other side of town and it was going to take around 20 minutes. I was sort of internally bitchin' until I thought about it a bit. What the hell, 20 minutes is...

Yup, my last golf was played December 2. The clubs are down in the basement, probably until March unless we take a trip south or El Nino comes to my rescue.

Re: The Grumble Thread

This falls into the "premature grumble" column. Yesterday I was literally the only person on the course (other than maintenance). As I was playing the 4th hole, I noted one other individual had teed off on #1. So now there are two of us on a 27-hole layout. As I played #6, I noted my distant compani...

Re: Describe Your Best Shot of the Month

Not a huge supply of "best shots" for the month so I will select a very recent effort, Yesterday I was playing the "year round open" course Fox Hills. I was one of two people who played yesterday. 45 degrees, very windy (20 mph with strong gusts) but sunny. Actually kind of pleasant. The course is a...

... The idiot who splashes his tee shot makes par. From my perspective, one of the hardest (and best) shots to make is the 3rd after drowning a ball on a par 3. You just proved you can't do it and then have to try again. You join the select company of Fred Couples and my father in making par the "e...

Soggy Course Once Again

It has been tough sledding lately with all the moisture. Today, while walking in the middle of the fairways, it was common to leave pretty deep tracks. It is soggy when your foot steps remain.

While playing today, the course workers were doing some major renovation work in a few spots. Pushed a tee shot on a par three and had a tough up & down.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

The season is winding down. My home course closed Friday and I slopped around it with an 81. Today it has rained all day. Sort of a depressing situation, playing poorly while the courses close and the season peters out as a muddy, cold mess.
