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

I am spellbound by Ken Burns's "Country Music" documentary on PBS. I am not even really a fan of country music. However its origin is one of the most beautiful fantastic tales I have ever heard and reaffirms my belief that music is a divine gift and a pure language of the soul. Also that Ken Burns ...

Re: 2019 LPGA Tour

Turncoat that I am, I was cheering for the Euros to spank the USA. Mission accomplished. All looked to be lost when Europe had to take the last three matches outright in order to win. Nice ending for Europe and Suzann Pettersen. Ditto! But, I am originally European, so not completely a turncoat, ah...

Re: 2019 summer support group

DougE I feel I am on the same path as you, or maybe not. I was doing good on the front today (+2) with 2 bogeys on the tough last 2 holes of the front nine, then got par on a ho-hum par 5 after a good drive with the driver, and after that I couldn't drive to save my life for 5-6 holes. Left, right,...

Re: Incomplete Rounds

Well done but you don’t need to post an ESC score on a hole not played. Instead it’s par + handicap strokes; or the gross score that gives you a net par. So, instead of a double bogey it would be a bogey on that #1 handicap hole. Also, you need to play only 7 holes for a 9 to be postable and 13 hole...

That is a very nice round @bkuehn1952. Imagine without the couple of doubles... [Yes, it can always be better, but I'd take that one every day, and twice on Sunday!] :claps :yess

@ DougE give it (the elbow) a rest, will you?

Nice one bkuehn1952 ! I had a good one myself today. It's an easier course and I play with some old guys (well, they are older than me!) from the white tees, and it's par 70. But I shot a nice 72 (2 over), with 11 GIRs, 12 pars, 2 birdies and 4 bogeys. The round also included a shanked chip, a 3-put...

Checkout SuperSpeed clubs: 2 lighter than your driver and one heavier. Good for speed training as the name implies.

Re: Random golf thoughts

I assume you are right-handed (so fades and slices both go right). I think it happens when the ball can't stay in the air because it does not have enough spin vs it speed: back spin and air flow on the dimples is what provides lift to keep the ball flying. The result is that the ball gets knocked do...
