Re: The New 2019 Rules

I can't say that leaving the pin in will be a regular occurrence for me yet. I haven't played enough real life official golf with the option available to me to form an educated opinion. However, one thing I have always noticed when leaving the pin in for unofficial rounds is that the pin helps me fo...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

Actually, I didn't buy anything, but I received a nice surprise from Titleist in the mail. They send me things from time to time in appreciation for my contributions to their forums and my brand loyalty in general. Today I got a not-sold-at-retail TeamTitleist tee shirt. Along with it came a bag of ...

Not yet, but you can be sure when Titleist puts those chips into their AVXs, I will surely have some. Not sure about red or orange though.

Re: 2018-2019 Winter Support Group

Thought it was ending yesterday morning, but it kept coming. Ended up with about 8 inches of snow. Though it never accumulated at a fast pace, it just kept snowing. From Saturday afternoon until late last night. About 30 hours, non-stop. It was a long, slow period of psychological pain and suffering...

Re: 2018-2019 Winter Support Group

1-3" turned into 4-6" of snow. It's a freakin' winter wonderland out there. Son of a bitch. Yeah, yeah, I know, it's good for resting my shoulder and elbow, except now I have to go outside and shovel it all with that shoulder and elbow. :fk

Re: WTF did you buy today?

Speaking of an interesting message on a ball, I found a Titleist AVX the other day at my club that said:

Happy Holidays
This Lost Ball is
a Gift from RSH

I'm guessing none of you are RSH. So I won't bother thanking you.

Re: GBogey's Move

GBogey, I just accepted a friend request on the Grint from someone who plays at Links at Galloway in Tennesee, whose name is Phil. I am assuming/hoping that's you, because I accepted. What the hell? How did we not know your name was Phil? Did I just forget? What's the G stand for in GBogey?

Re: WTF did you buy today?

I lost my range finder at PGA West in Palm Springs... so I was going to get the V4 without the slope. Do you guys think its worth the $$ for some slope? I have some $$ at the Pro shop after the Superbowl tournament last year. The last one was 200 ish, i can't believe the new ones costs as much as t...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

So much depends on what feels good to you. I play Golf Pride MCC grips in Midsize. They may feel nice if you like a bit wider diameter. I actually have been playing these for years, but the new MCC +4 grips are starting to appeal to me. The lower hand portion is like having 4 extra wraps. Overall it...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

My 2 cents, if that one video of the guy in the tee shirt and jeans (really? tee shirt and jeans?) is you. You're coming off the ball way too inside on the backswing, consequently coming from way too outside on the downswing.

FYI, I signed up for the Grint. Friend me. DougE in Frederick MD.

Doug have you looked in to super speed golf? I know you always talk about not hitting it very "far" even though I think you do a good job of getting it out there. I read a lot about SSG in wrx and decided to give a modified version of it a try. Over the last 6ish months I've been spending a little ...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

After 6 or 7 years of playing with a Bushnell Tour V2 range finder, I finally broke down and got a V4 Shift to replace it. (On/Off Slope version.) I have wanted one for the last couple years, but couldn't swallow the cost, which has increased over the past year by about 100 bucks at retail for some ...

Re: 3rd Annual Frozen Balls Challenge - 2018-2019

I have two 78s and a 77 under my belt so far for 2019 winter golf. But temps were in the 40s and I've been playing from the whites in the cold because the blue tees have been moved to the black teeing ground to allow for healing of the over-used blue teeing grounds. That's too far for this old man. ...

Feels about 15* here today. Wind gusting over 30. We did have a 9 inch snowfall in November. That's more than you had in MI, I think. But, I have 5 rounds in already in 2019. Unfortunately, not looking good for awhile. Continued cold into next week and now snow forecast for the weekend here. As I sa...

What's the point, visibility? Sure is a lot farther fall to the ground, should you screw up.
