Cold Weather and Hands

A friend with whom I have been playing recently has been wearing 2 gloves because of the temperature. I always wear one glove and stick the bare hand in my pocket if it is cold enough. Once I have walked a few holes, I rarely have any concern about hand warmth. A post DougE made on a round he played...

Re: 2018 LPGA thread

Season's finale this weekend, the CME Group Tour Championship. The LPGA sort of has this right with the end of the season occurring close to the end of the year. A lot of relatively well-known players are not playing in the CME after failing to accumulate enough points. Gaby López punched her ticket...

Re: Sort of Humorous

Reasons Why Golf Is Better Than Sex You don't have to sneak your golf magazines into the house. If you are having trouble with golf, it is perfectly acceptable to pay a professional to show you how to improve your technique. The Ten Commandments do not say anything about golf. If your partner takes...

Re: 2018 Fall Support Group

Doug's funk is something I have sort of been dealing with for almost 2 years. While I will score decently at times, I have never been in such a prolonged period of "no confidence" in my game. Lately I have been putting up some good numbers but I feel like I am shooting 95 with the collection of thin...

Re: 2018 Fall Support Group

Had one of those experiences some of you guys live for yesterday. Yes, I love driving into an empty parking lot. I had a golf orgy and played 5 of 6 days last week. Not once did we need to wait more than a few seconds other than one time on Tuesday when we double-backed and re-played the prior 2 ho...

When will DougE pass bkuehn1952?

I noticed that DougE has played one time since October 19 (a 77, btw). One round in almost 2 weeks is fairly unusual, even in Winter. Then I noted that he was over 1,000 scores posted (1,051). My 1,196 includes 2 extra years (started in 2007 versus Doug in 2009). Barring injury, I think DougE passes...

Re: Bunker Play

I typically go with #3 although #2 is occasionally my choice. As with most of us, I try to avoid the situation and/or the courses I play rarely force on into the shot.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

It is pretty obvious what I shot a week or so ago sucked. When I went to input the score into the GAM handicap system, I got a message that said something like, "Are you really sure you shot 94??? That score is well outside the typical score you have been posting. YOU SUCK!!!" :facepalm So today I p...

Re: Random thoughts

Let me be the first to announce that I did not win. Of course, I did not have a ticket so if I had won, there would have been a bit of an investigation. I think someone in SC had the single winning ticket. Wow, working for $15 an hour and then sitting on $650,000,000 after taxes. Just a bit of a cha...

Re: Johnny Miller retirement

I think Johnny's best moment was when Tiger was finishing a delayed round at Pebble Beach. At 18 Tiger hit a hook on to the beach and let go of a string of mother fucking shit ass words that were picked up by the live mic for TV. There was silence from the booth until Johnny said, "Well folks, that ...

Not a lot to choose from this month but with 6 days left, my guess is the chip in on #18 for birdie will stand up.

The reason this is so memorable is that for years it was the only bunker shot I ever holed. Still have only done it 3 times - not a strength of my game.
I am tied with you at three :facepalm

Considering the number of years playing and the volume of rounds, 3 is pretty pathetic for me.

Team Golf Games

Played a small "Chapman" event (just five 2-man teams). Interesting concept. Each player tees off. Then you play your partner's ball for the 2nd shot. At that point, you select the ball that is in the best position and whomever did not hit that ball last, hits the 3rd shot. The team alternates from ...

No hurricane here but we seem to get a substantial rainfall every other day. I am really tired of slogging down saturated fairways in order to hit a mud ball out of a puddle.

Re: Random thoughts

I have trouble keeping track of every social media approach. I thought Facebook was the province of "older" people. If one is 29 and under, Snap Chat, Instagram or Twitter was the thing. There are likely half a dozen other "social" connection methods of which I am totally unaware. I often read about...

Re: The New 2019 Rules

My new approach for "finding" my ball in the rough will be to first evaluate the lie from a distance. If it looks poor, I will need to accidentally walk on top of the ball, say "Oops, I stepped on my ball" and then attempt to get a better lie by dropping from knee height. Now back to reality. I had...

I was a little surprised by the composition of the US team.

Nine US ladies have won more money than Ms. Wie this year and 17 are ahead of Ms. Kerr. Our Wies...

Re: Describe Your Best Shot of the Month

Well, so far this month I have played three times, other than a team competition down in Indiana. Although I have the weekend to top the following entry, I think this will hold up. Today I hit into a greenside bunker on the 13th hole at Huron Meadows. I was hoping to get the next shot close enough t...
