Re: December Golf!!!

I have a name for "those guys" but I won't repeat it here. I'll give srogers the benefit of the doubt and just assume he doesn't own any long pants. Poor guy.

Re: WTF did you buy today?

Pulled the trigger after a range session a few weeks ago, working with various shafts, and ordered a new Titleist TS2 Driver with Tensei Blue 55 Stiff Shaft. Arrives next week. Elbow better heal quickly.

Maybe you should try weather-modelingsupercomputers.com. I hear they are offering a Holiday Special on last year's models. :lolz

Re: Bawlz

Not that I think many of you are regular Pro V1 users, but in case any of you are, and haven't heard yet, the new 2019 versions of the Pro V1 and Pro V1x are being released in a month or two. I was able to test the V1 (as a Team Titleist tester) this past summer. Honestly, having gotten so used to m...

Gee Brian, thanks, I think.

I could do without the power outage, though. No need to be uncomfortable while I wait it out.

Re: December Golf!!!

3 full days. No swings. Tried chipping in basement, but it still irritates elbow. I'm actually glad it's so cold out right now. I don't feel like I'm missing much. On the other hand, my new cart cover was just delivered 15 minutes ago. I coulda been out there tomorrow using it.

Re: December Golf!!!

Beef, LC&P out of season is virtually required, at least on a super wet course. No one says you need to do it on a decent lie, but if you have a plugged ball in the fairway, out of season, that's just silly. Even in season, with no LC&P in play, you can pull out a plugged ball from the short grass a...

Re: December Golf!!!

Elbow injury. :bawl It started bothering me Sunday. Been out since the 9th hole on Monday, two holes after it seemed to really get tweaked (or something tore slightly) on a cut-off flopitch shot from alongside the green on the 7th. At least a week rest will be needed. Hoping not much more. Hurts to ...

Re: Bawlz

Not to beat a dead horse, or add any new thoughts on what has already been said, but this very short article in GolfWeek supports what most people who play a lot of golf already believe. What it doesn't mention is that you really need to play a certain ball all the time to get to know it well. For m...

Re: Bawlz

I just got back from playing. Hit the ball okay, but wasn't real sharp. This discussion must have been in my head. Is there a program that can take THAT into consideration? In my defense, the wind was honking. And all of a sudden, I seem to be having some tendinitis in my elbow as of midway through ...

Re: Bawlz

I don't know my average. I just know I hit a lot of short irons close enough to have realistic birdie putts when my game is going well. One very cold round last week I hit three approach shots, all to under 3', and all ending in birdie. That is not unusual for me to get that many close in a round. ...

Oh, here we go. We can debate it all you want, and you can apply ability-generalizations to different level handicappers, but you don't know MY game, or, I'm sure many others' like me. I often practice with a bunch of top-level junior amateurs who are all in the +1 to 2 handicap range. We all have s...

Re: Bawlz

Go play regularly 3-4 a week with the same model ball for a few months. Then play with a different brand/model ball. You'll see the difference. I can tell the difference in feel between a Pro V1, V1x and AVX, both off the tee and around the green. All urethane covered, Tour level balls. I play an AV...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Haven't played in five days. Was sick in bed Monday and Tuesday with bad cold. Didn't really feel up to playing yet, but wanted to get out at least one day this week. 40 degrees, but wind wasn't too bad. Figured I'd play a few holes until it got too uncomfortable. Hit a couple 8 irons on the range a...

This is getting bad. It's only November. I haven't played since Sunday. Five full days. Weather is not cooperating. I drove by the course on Wednesday. It was 33 degrees and the wind was gusting over 30 mph. With wind chill, probably felt like low teens. It was terrible, but, son of a bitch, there w...

Re: ... about to put ______ in the video player

Thought Rachel McAdams was great in Game Night . And, I have always liked Jason Bateman's dry humor. He was great in the recent Netflix series, Ozark . Serious role for him in this one, but still had some great dry humorous lines, delivered as only Jason Bateman could. If you haven't seen the series...

Upgraded my Titleist 915F2 3W to a new 917F2 3W. Got tired of having to clean out the Active Recoil Channel. The 917 channel is closed, so can't clog up with grass and mud. Otherwise, very similar clubs.
