Re: Hurricane watch

I have colleagues in Port Lavaca and Aransas Pass, TX. The good news is that they were forced to evacuate. They are all okay, but they were expected to return to work this morning at 8:00 since we technically run emergency communications in those areas. I don't think that's gonna happen.

Re: Turning properly

I know the feeling gbogey. When the driver isn't working, sometimes it takes a miracle. And sometimes a miracle isn't even possible. Questions I get a lot include stuff like "how they hell did you shoot an 85?" Two stroke and distance penalties is like adding another hole to the scorecard.

Re: Rules question

I think this is an interesting case study on human behavior in general. When things happen that we don't expect, we wait for some kind of leader to step forward and lead the way. Golf is interesting because there is no such leader the vast majority of the time, and the result is that we have a rule ...

Re: The Grumble Thread

That is sad, Doug. There are fixtures on the course that we kind of all just get used to after a while, and when they are gone, it feels like we lose a part of ourselves. There was a starter named Bob at one of my regular courses for years and years. Bob was always old to me, but he was one of the c...

Re: Strange Things During A Round

There is a twosome that I occasionally get paired with here in Phoenix. They are not the most refined gentlemen on the planet, but I like them. They tend to wear ratty tee shirts and dirty jeans onto the course, and they talk with a rural lilt that I find kind of cool. The best part about these guys...

I went outside to try to enjoy some sunshine on Monday. It was the only 10 minutes the whole day that I got to myself, and the freaking moon got in the way. Shame on the moon.

Re: Less "borrow"

There is some science between missing on the high or low side on a putt. Missing on the low side is a complete miss. The ball has no chance to go in. But missing on the high side still gives the ball a chance. The second part of this, and I have explained this to my nephew numerous times, is that wh...

Re: I wear my sunglasses on course, so I can...

So I played 4 holes this morning w/ my normal glasses on because it was cloudy. I noticed that it only bothers me when I'm putting because I'm holding my face straight down to the ground my glasses (if they have slid too far down my nose) will just swing free from my ears. Then I have to push them ...

I cannot see the ball in flight with (prescription) sunglasses on.

Those who leave their golf bag or cart at the front of the green. Okay, it takes a little bit of time to move one's bag or cart after chipping or pitching on. Still, I would prefer to wait at that time so later these folks exit the scene quickly. Watching someone wander toward me to retrieve their ...

Re: flying with clubs

I think this all depends on the carrier you are using. I typically fly Southwest, where clubs fly free. But they will not take them unless they are in an approved carry-on bag of some kind. I have a soft bag made by Ogio, and I spend $20 on a stiff club protector that is the length of a driver to go...

Really pleased with how I grinded it out today. Only hit 3 fairways and 5 GIRs, but had a +7 78 after a +5 in the first 4 holes. Got up and down 6 times due to good chipping and putting. Had 3 really good recovery shots from the wrong fairway. These do tend to be the most satisfying rounds. When I ...
