Re: Autumn Support Group Thread

Sounds like, in the end, you still have 9.99 fingers intact. (That's assuming all others are still connected and complete.) Coulda been a lot worse. Glad you are back to working on your game. Yup, all my digits are still attached and intact and this one will finish to grow back I feel, so I'll be a...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Agreed! I had seen a buddy of mine get lucky and chip in three in one round (some for par I think), but three in four holes for birdie? That is Tigeresque!! :thumbs

Re: Autumn Support Group Thread

I just sliced the top of my left thumb off, chopping salad. I have a flat spot now and it did hurt like hell: it's a bit better now, a day later, but I don't think I can hold a club. Bummer! So it's been a few weeks. As I mentioned, mine grew back after I did the same thing many years ago. How is y...

Congrats Doug! These little things have a sneaky way of adding up, so getting them free or at a discount is a great deal. Besides, that kind of job, particularly at Titleist, was made for you!

Why didn't they ask a person on either side of that middle seat to trade with your window neighbor? They would have been closer together than everyone in one row.... SMH.

Re: Newly Cut Holes vs. Beat Up Holes

I believe Kuehn is right: sharp edges are more conducive to get the putt to fall in, especially in conjunction with the volcano effect that tends to develop on old holes due to people pulling their ball out with the putter, raising the edges above the ground surrounding the hole. Also, leaving the p...

Re: Autumn Support Group Thread

I did that once. Went to the hospital with the sliced off piece in a plastic bag with ice. They laughed at me. Played golf a few days later, albeit all bandaged up. Surprisingly, it all grew back in a few weeks. Yeah, I looked at the chopped off piece and my wife said: "should we try to re-attach i...

Re: Anything, Dog

Jason, are you familiar at all with TPLO, a surgery that changes the relationship of the tibia to the femur and repairs a CCL without replacing ligaments (you have to read up on it, it's hard to explain)? My dog had this done and while it was expensive, it was a great success. She also had a large t...

Re: golf is hard

Yup, water is crucial when walking. I drink at least 4 16oz bottles of water when I walk. On hot days, it can nearly double. Using a push cart makes the weight a moot point, but I refill my water bottle at the convenience stations spread around the course. I use a thermos type of bootle, filled with...

Special ordered my new Titleist AP3-718 5, 6 and 7 irons. Gonna play them alongside my existing AP2-716 7 iron, 8 iron, 9 iron and PW for a mixed set of players irons, and player-"looking" irons (with more forgiveness). Cool! Let's us know how you get on with them. Do you really plan on keeping two...

I shot a 76 today too, but I have to qualify it as it is a par 70 and I played from the white tees (just under 6000ft) because it was cold and windy. Well not really cold for you hearty folks from the northern climes, but it was the coldest day in quite some time here (since last winter), barely bre...

Re: Putting confessions

I agree. Same here. I used to putt with the line on the ball, but after remarking to my swing coach at GolfTEC that I was lipping out a lot of putts, he took one look and told me: you are lining up the line wrong, i.e. just outside the hole (for longish putts)! So, I had an aiming bias due to misali...

Re: golf is hard

I read somewhere a few years back when I was into that sort of things that using a push cart didn't vary that much in terms of calories spent in a round vs carrying a bag. There was indeed a difference like 1500 vs 1800 calories for an average course. Maybe more or less depending on the course. Eith...

I may have to do it in installments though. Maybe a hole or two a week. I'll start on the 1st next chance I get. Pictures are easy. Writing the descriptions will take me some time. But I'm up for it if someone will read it. Doug, rest assured that I enjoy reading anything you write about, whether g...

I played Poppy Hills on Saturday with my Associate Club (i.e. a club without a course). It's the home of the NCGA (NorCal GA) and has been renovated a couple or three years ago. It's a grreat course, with some notes of Pinehurst #2, with sandy areas and no rough at all: it's fairway cut all the way ...

All good points, Beef. I'm sure they (Sergio and all the others) haven't really thought this through completely. But it is patterned after what some consumers companies do in such instances: e.g., one $1 of each bottle of so-and-so sale will go to this-and-that cause... (up to a maximum of X, usuall...
