Re: 2019 goals

1. Maintain handicap under 7 - usually goes up to 7.5 at some point during season 2. Achieve average differential of 8.0 - basically a stroke better than last 3 years 3. Play at least one bucket list course - have several potential trips in discussion that could make this happen 4. Secondary goal i...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

I played with a young man from Australia, who was near scratch, and two sales guys who 20-25 handicaps. Really fun group but a random pairing- actually on a tennis trip with my wife and the carrot for me was to work in good golf 17 was playing 128 yards but you needed 122 to carry the water and ther...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Shot an 81 Thursday, but the important factor is that it was at TPC Sawgrass. Hideously expensive but a really neat experience. Best I've played on a Marquee course - decided to take my medicine whenever I was out of position really only two bad holes, unfortunately one of those was #17. Difficult c...

Below freezing here which is shocking for November. But it will be above 50 by weekend.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Had a solid 75 today. Given the conditions - limited roll and winter greens - was very pleased. Will likely move up a tee soon for the winter. More importantly, the back was not an issue at all. Have a big trip coming up.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Even though I mentioned it yesterday, I fell victim to similar issues today. Greens already dormant and fast. Losing 15-20 yards off the tee. We went straight past fall. 79, not bad considering I hadn't played in a few weeks and I was getting my back into the swing.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

78 on super-fast greens with some pins unfairly set on slopes. Pissed me off. Friggin guy who set pins today needs to learn what is and is not fair. It's one thing to set a pin on a slight slope when the stimp is slow enough to stop the ball on that slope. It's clearly another thing to have the gre...

When do they release new wedges / when will the SM7 have a slight discount to clear them out - time for new wedges.
Got an email today that the SM7 have gone to clearance prices, ordering my Christmas present tonight.

We quickly moved from blazing hot summer to full Fall mode very quickly. Three weeks ago we had record heat, last three weeks unseasonably cool by -15 degrees. Average high temperature here in November is 62 - I memorized that when I decided to move - average high for first 15 days of November is fo...

I've always had the unpopular opinion that Jack's major record is more impressive than Greatest PGA TOUR Champion of All-Time Tiger's but the 82 PGA wins is beyond compare.

Re: Random golf thoughts

45 degrees has become my benchmark here - it's too damp so 40 here is colder than 40 in NJ. Forecast has us in the 70's this weekend and then two weeks of 60's. Looking forward to wearing pants to play.

Re: Random golf thoughts

Revision yesterday and I'm down a full point to 14.3. Congrats - you've been playing awesome. I was excited by my latest revision at first - 5.2, lowest ever - until I realized that without the combo round (two rounds shortened to 9 holes by weather) I'd be 5.8, which isn't my lowest ever. At least...

85 today. As good as I putted yesterday the opposite was true today. Seven 3 putts. Pathetic.

Re: The Grumble Thread

Don't get me started. I cannot even begin to understand the muni golf course management here. For starters, I get to the course to find out it's backed up by a "tournament", which is really a corporate outing. Eight tee times of scramble golf ahead of us. From what I could see at least 1-2 persons i...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Round 2 went much better. First, the pre-tournament info was wrong. It was played at this course from my normal blue tees, not the very long gold. So my gold tee fretting and practice was a waste, except it helped my hybrid game and I made 3 very good hybrid shots during the round. Started first 8 h...

DougE Have to ask have you had any body or physical changes lately (of course there's the elbow)? Whenever I go through a period like yours (although usually not as severe), there's usually a body change -sore knee, torn finger ligament, or the number one cause is when my weight goes up to top of m...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

First day of tournament – crazy up and down day. First, for some reason day one was being played from the Gold tees – I think because this is a senior event. These are 600 yards SHORTER than my normal tees at this course, so I needed to shoot 74-75 or better to be a good round. Really rough start – ...

Through 5 holes I was +7 and had more topped shots (3) and tossed clubs (3) than fairways or GIRs (0). Not sure how many f word...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Thanks for the encouragement DougE . To be clear I have no pretensions of winning the tournament - there's going to be a few guys who can reach all the par 5's in two although it's possible that those guys will be in the 50-54 age group. But I've been playing well and particularly well on these two ...

Nothing like 97* on September 28th.
98*?
95 today with a feels like 99 - we had a 3 day break a week ago with feels like high 80's, but otherwise September is as hot as August.

Re: 2019 summer support group

It's in your head. You have the game. No question. Fully aware of that - just can't figure out how to get over it. It's not the lack of scrambles, but the blown opportunities that lead to silly bogeys or even double bogeys and it seems to be all short game related. I've also decided that the course...
