Re: Poison Ivy - What would you do?

I've gotten it once, playing golf and it's not fun. It would definitely be an unplayable for me, assuming 2 club lengths is enough relief. Going inline with the flag usually doesn't work in this situation: it only gets you deeper in the woods...

Brian, that is impressive at that yardage. Actually, that is impressive in tournament play at any yardage. You've got my respect. Well done.
My thoughts exactly. Well done!

Re: I am done with Bethpage Black

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.

Re: 2018 LPGA thread

Anybody watching today? 31 under par (so far) is just freaking insane! Even when the top 30+ players are -13 or better... One more and she'll average 8 under par, per day, over 4 days! And "she" is someone I have never heard of: unreal... ETA: She didn't get any deeper than -31, but no matter, it is...

Well done Doug! We knew we could count on you.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

I scored 74 (+4) today, with 13 pars, 1 birdie, 3 bogeys (including a 3-putt GIR) and a double: 3.8 differential. Probably one of my best round ever, especially with the short game. But the most surprising thing to me is that my handicap index is dropping like a rock: it's going to be 7.2 on the 1st...

Re: How to start the downswing?

For me, it's a small hip slide/bump to the left, followed by the hip turn (while the slide continues, moving the weight forward). I am completely passive with the arms, I think: they just follow. A long time ago, before I had any real idea of how to swing, I always started with the arms, but it was ...

Re: 2018 summer support group

I'm in another funk. Too much golf I think. (12 of the last 14 days.) Starting to make some sloppy swings. Thin iron shots. Partially skulled a flop yesterday. Lost driver consistency and distance. Confidence falling. Too many freakin' people out there. Lots of waiting and rhythm breaking. The mid-...

Re: 2018 summer support group

Hearing about other people's summer funk makes me feel better. I am the opposite. Summer is the best time for golf, so it saddens me to hear it is not the best time for you. I personally am playing the best golf of my life right now, with only 2 rounds in the 80s (80 and 81) in the dozen of rounds ...

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

The rule 14-5, like most rules, is not based on intent, just on an objective fact: hitting a moving ball results in 2 strokes. Simple.

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

I disagree Mr Fish. The rule 14-5 says: ... must not make a stroke at a moving ball. Penalty is 2 strokes. It couldn't be more clear. The caveat in there is the part about see rule 1-2 for a ball purposely stopped or deflected by player or caddie. EXCEPT that rule 1-2 explicitly says if there is any...

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

I think an even smarter move was to let the ball trickle off the green in whatever "impossible" spot and call an unplayable. It's only 1 stroke penalty, not 2. Then retry the original putt, this time knowing how fast it really is. That said, i don't object to his move or the USGA decision to not DQ....

You did good giving your Contours (size 11) to that kid. I couldn't use them anyway (I need size 9). :) Yes, those Sports LT are super-comfortable and I wear shorts a lot (it's a California thing, I guess...), one more reason to not go with the DryJoys. I agree with you that they look good with pant...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

Understood. The benefit the first time is to not have to deal with solvent and to be able to do it simply, without paying someone (at the expense of a bit of time to clean the old situation up).

I use my electric tire pump that plugs into my cigarette lighter in my truck. An air compressor is over kill and will probably cause a higher likelihood of damaging the grip.

The tire pump was $25 so break even is about 8 grips.
Thanks! Good tip. I may have to look into getting one of those.

I'm in beefs boat. Why pay $3 to someone per club when blowing a grip off then on with air is so easy?

Guess I'm just cheap
Perhaps. I don't have an air compressor and would probably have no use for one other than regripping club? How long before I would break even?

So I went to a Golf Galaxy to look at shoes in person and try a few pairs. I didn't look at just FootJoy by the way. The Nike Lunar 2 looked pretty good and were on sale at just under $100: they just didn't have my size and color so I would have to order them online (no big deal). The Adiddas don't ...

Re: 2018 summer support group

That's an odd one. I have never had that happened to any of my clubs or seen to anyone's club. I had a 5 wood head fly out from a regular tee shot once though, and they (Cobra at the time) replaced it. Send the dinged club back ASAP: the summer is young. You'll have it back (or a new one) in no time...

Thanks Doug. I have worn brown shoes in the past (either all brown or with the brown stripe), but these days, I feel like I need either all white or all black. Yes, those DryJoy Tours look nice, but as you say, there are close to $200. I don't know, I may have to bite the bullet... or go to another ...
