Re: 2018 Fall Support Group

I haven't played golf in the last few days, because of the terrible air quality we have in the Bay Area, as the Camp Fire near Chico, CA continues to burn. It's such a devastation! I've heard that we have the worst air quality on the whole planet right now, worse than India and China!

Re: WTF did you buy today?

That, I just don’t understand. Not saying you’re crazy Doug, but I don’t get it at all. I take the cover off of my putter on the first tee, store it in my bag and don’t put it back on until I get to the car. I have a putter well in my bag and the head does not cling against all the other clubs, so I...

Re: Cold Weather and Hands

Activated charcoal pouches that stay warm for 6-8 hours. Hold them on and off in between shots. Actually, I don't wear a glove at all, so when it's cold, I alternate the pocket where I hold the pouch, warming both hands... The only time I wear 2 gloves is in the rain: then, they are rain gloves! :)

Re: WTF did you buy today?

I second the Sport LT recommendation. Not leather but guaranteed waterproof for 1 year, around $100 and really nice looking. They sit a little lower than the Contours (which is where I was coming from before those) and I prefer that. I’ve got them in white (and silver) and also in black (and silver)...

Re: Random thoughts

I agree with what you said in the first paragraph. I don't play in the small jackpots (say 15 mill) because it's not that thrilling to think about what you can do with it. It's pretty straightforward really, so why pay for that dream? In the biggest ones (say above $300M, so that you are talking abo...

Re: The New 2019 Rules

Don't forget that the pros (and everyone else) can already leave the flag in when putting and chipping from just off the green, and when they are putting from close, they nearly all take it out, despite the stats saying leave it in. Don't think the pros have the best golf IQ: they don't necessarily ...

Re: The New 2019 Rules

The flag stick in only helps good putters. Bad putters will miss the hole the same as before. Good ones can hole out a little more frequently by carrying more speed and minimizing the break around 6-10ft. It won't save any time (the stated purpose) until everyone realizes that they should leave the ...

Re: 2018 Fall Support Group

I agree with both of your posts in principle. But, I would like to point out that it is still around 90 at the high, and that one can easily play golf until 6:30 or 7:00 around these parts (Northern California), so it's not like you are forced to endure: just sayin'! :)

Re: Handicaps and Course Difficulty

The other issue is likely more mental - it is pretty easy for me to think that I can turn 2DB's in bogeys or bogeys into pars - it's much more difficult to imagine turning more pars into birdies. I don't know why - I think it's just amateur golfer mentality where I probably give luck too much credi...

Re: Handicaps and Course Difficulty

The problem with harder courses is that a small mistake is sometimes really penal, so when you are saying that you were throwing 3-4 shots per round, it could mean for example a shot into a hazard that was avoidable with better course management or 2-3 putts that were avoidable by targeting a better...

I will be in Portugal for a couple weeks. While I will likely have internet access, I may find more interesting things to do than hang out on the internet. If I am even less involved than normal in our golf discussions, I have a reasonable excuse. Bon dia!!

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

On the fairway hit question, undoubtedly yes. The term fairway does not appear in the Rules of Golf. The term used is "closely mown area" and the fringe definitely qualifies as such. As for your 12, I have you beat with a 13 recently and just a couple of days ago, I managed to score a 10 on a par 5 ...

I am in Hawaii (Big Island) right now and you may have heard that hurricane Lane is approaching dangerously close. It was a cat 5 just a few days ago and is now weakening to a cat 2 and probably cat 1 or tropical storm soon. Nonetheless, with a radius of more than 200 miles, it is bringing with it l...

Re: Random golf thoughts

Doug, maybe you are becoming a bit complacent with your own game, expecting an easy win by 7-8 strokes as you say and in turn fail to focus adequately on your own shots. Things like club selection, target selection, aiming accuracy and even swinging (slower swing, coming out of the shot earlier, etc...

Re: The Tiger Thread

It sure was fun to watch! Think about it: another half inch for that putt to fall in and a little less pace for that putt to not lip out and we are talking about a playoff, even wih the drive on 17 and all the missed fairways. That's pretty incredible.

Maybe I come off like an old woman, but hey, I am still getting carded when I buy beer. That's because this old woman doesn't have a leathery face from habitually going out and standing in the summer sun for five plus hours at a time, waiting to hit golf shots. Yeah, I still get carded too. But not...

Ouch! Who knew? The place looks so nice, and tough,but inviting somehow... I can't fault you for having this reaction, especially to the trip back to the city after a long day of walking in the heat without enough water. Rest up and feel better.
