Re: January Golf!

I've decided that the dividing line here around course busyness is golf turtlenecks - if it's cold enough to wear one, I have the course to myself. If it's warmer, then they are lots of golfers out there - these TN people don't seem to own turtlenecks like the ex-NJ person does. Close to 60 yesterda...

Re: January Golf!

Absolutely gorgeous here today, for January a stunning day. After 18 years in NJ, never even thought that courses would be open on New Years Day but they are. Alas, I wore my self out yesterday and made other plans. Today would have been a better day to play but who knew?

Re: December Golf!!!

Thanks - My 5th par 5 eagle. Even though it was from the senior tees, I feel like it was legit - 460 yards, two really solid shots to reach the green. The first eagle was same hole, but the tees were up some and the wind was so hard at my back that I hit Driver / 6i to reach the green - never have f...

Re: December Golf!!!

Almost didn't play today - it was a tad chillier than I prefer but then I thought, my friends in the North East would be jealous of these conditions. Actually turned out nicer than forecast - high winds but lots of sun so it felt more like 50. Solid round highlighted by an EAGLE. From the winter/sen...

Re: Pre-Release (g)rumblings of new Titleist irons

Got an email today that the SM7 have gone to clearance prices, ordering my Christmas present tonight. I put the new 48 degree in play today (the other two wedges will be held back until March when golf is more serious) in order to get used to it.

Re: December Golf!!!

Rain was forecasted starting around noon, so went out at 8:30 and paired with another young man. We finished in a little less than 3 hours, he rode I walked. Rain at that point wasn't coming anytime soon and there was NO ONE near the tee box, so went out for another nine. Glad I did - first time aro...

Re: December Golf!!!

FWIW It popped up to +60 degrees this week. Played on Christmas Eve - course was about as slow as I have ever experienced it. Three foursomes in front of us playing some sort of family scramble. Hate to see how slow they would be if it wasn't a scramble. At least I was playing. Shooting for 3 more r...

Re: The Grumble Thread

Sorry to be posting but I'm grumpy. On eighth hole (toughest on the front) today I blasted my drive my drive. Never mind that I was playing up a tee due to winter golf, the drive was blasted.

Re: The Grumble Thread

I'm not near as negative about the USGA as either of you guys and think as an organization they do more good than bad, but I was similarly offended by the email. Why an organization as rich in funds as the USGA would ask for additional donations is quite confusing and in poor taste.

Re: The Greatest PGA TOUR Champion of All-Time Greatest PGA TOUR Champion of All-Time Greatest PGA TOUR Champion of All-Time Tiger Thread

I read a Butch Harmon interview a few years back where Butch talked about trying to convince Greatest PGA TOUR Champion of All-Time Tiger to just put the ball in the fairway and that you're "the greatest iron player of all time so that's enough to win." The implication was that Greatest PGA TOUR Cha...

Re: Describe Your Best Shot of the Month

Two shots come to my mind: 1. I chipped in / pitched in / wedged in from about 60 yards. Thinking about it it was probably the third longest shot I have holed. Thanks to a fubar drive, it was only for birdie. Of course in reality it was a pretty good but not great shot - just happened to roll in. 2....

There's a Woody Allen about how a rationalization is more important than sex. What's the longest time you've gone without sex? When's the last day you went without a rationalization.

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...

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.
