In thr state of New Jersey. Being serious here. Intellectually, culturally it is a perfect match. Staten Island does not embody the general spirit of NYC.
So I think what you are saying here is that Staten Island isn't filled with self consumed asses. :)

Re: 2018 Winter Season Support Group

I'm in Tennessee for the weekend. Normal high is around 50 and I thought I'd get some rounds in - tomorrow it's going to be 37 - then go the 50's later next week. Tough winter for golfers all around.

Re: 2017 Year-End Totals

It turns out my record keeping wasn't very good this year. Approximately 120 rounds, which makes sense as i probably played 40-50 extra rounds due to my job transition and a normal year is around 70 rounds. Approximately $8000 dollars which includes my wife and son for their occasional golf needs wh...

Re: Breaking 80: What it means to you

I will be the first to admit that I am totally bi-polar on this one. On the one hand, I don't really think about it. I no longer track how many times I've down it like I used to - probably around 90 times - I do still track the times I've shot 76 and below for different reasons. But I don't go crazy...

Re: 2018 Winter Season Support Group

I believe that this is when the weather channel talks about the "european model" and the "U.S. model." Funny how my mood changes as to which one I wishes was better. Wife and I had a staycation in NYC - we were supposed to spend lots of time walking around and browsing but had to change plans. Curre...

Re: Membership opportunity at my club

That's an incredible deal - if I get it, $7500 whereas annual membership would be $15,000. Forget the cart fees. The only question is whether the club is in trouble? Why are they offering something so good? If for some reason the club isn't around for 5 years, you are hosed. But as long as it is aro...

Re: Autumn Support Group Thread

Cleaned my clubs today with soap, water and brushing. Then did the same with the grips. Usually just give them the hard rub with a wet cloth. What else to do - no playing, no range.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

20' birdie putt... walked off with an 8. Statistically that is a six-putt. Probably my first one. Now, I think the season is going to end, and I will be forced to sit on this turd over the whole winter, stewing in bitterness and regret. Think I finished at 82. FTS Sorry, just had to laugh.

Re: How far do you have to travel to your home course?

I prefer to keep it under 30 minutes if I can. I figure I'm gone for 5 hours including pre-teeing off, why make it longer. That said, this weekend I'm solo and I've considered 45-60 minutes.

Re: The Tiger Thread

Maybe it sounded like I was criticizing his chipping but I wasn't and totally agree with you - I would think chipping would take the longest to get back to normal. Also, Speith said the course was one of the hardest chipping courses they have played due to the grain, elevated greens, etc.

Re: The Tiger Thread

He is putting great. He's given away a few strokes on par 5's and with his chipping, otherwise he would be 3-5 shots better. And he's hitting driver great. Over all very promising assuming he's pain free.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Yesterday was likely my last NJ round of the year. I've said that twice before but given that I can only play on weekends right now and the 2 week forecast is grim, that was likely it. My game has been mediocre at best the last 6 weeks - not scrambling like normal, although that is partly conditions...

Re: Airplane Seat Switching

As someone who qualifies as a road warrior, perfectly within reason to say no. If the kids were alone or to switch to a window seat, the case may be different, but the kids had grandma and notice that Hubby did not choose to swap with this wife. I did do such a swap once, but the middle seat was in ...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

That sounds like fun. I would love to do a shamble with one of my buddies - we're both around 7-8 handicaps - he's a great driver of the ball and I'm pretty good 150 yards and in. Think we'd make a great team.

Re: Shitty swing thoughts thread

Any swing thought where the main intent is to increase distance is bad in my book. When I first started out I would constantly mess myself with all of the distance tips from the Golf mags. Firmly believe that you only increase distance reliably through better contact.

Re: Autumn Support Group Thread

Based upon forecasts yesterday may have been my last NJ round this year. I’m fearing a harsh winter. Ended season with a decent 80 where I struck the ball decently under muddy conditions. Good thing because the previous round was one of those landmark bad swing days and I didn’t want that hanging ov...

Went to the range before my round yesterday. I finished up my range session with a couple short chip and pitch shots, then pulled my driver back out to re-loosen up before heading to the tee. I went to make some flat baseball-type swings and accidentally caught the shaft on a cast iron rod that was...

I suffer from occasional cramping, usually in the middle of the night. When it happens, I'll have a small tonic water, 6-8 oz. IMO it works.

Friday was supposed to be my last day but my wife changed her plans yesterday and so she suggested that I go out one more time. Pretty decent 78 but the highlight was the two birdies.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Been going through a very strange phase. Last 3 weeks I've played 14 times. I'd have to classify 7 of those as really putrid for my level. I few mediocre rounds but I really didn't hit the ball solidly at all, and 3 rounds which have been absolutely fabulous. Go figure. Really nice 76 today to close...
