Re: 23 years 3 months 16 days

You got off cheaply. Sounds like luck was on your side not only for the ace (not that skill wasn't also involved), but for the fact that the bar at the course couldn't serve liquor 'til noon. It would have been a much bigger tab if it was full of golfers. No one knew at Twin Peaks. Or at least, no o...

Re: 23 years 3 months 16 days

So, in the end, what'd it cost you in the bar? (Not counting my Stoli/Cranberry.)

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

I have a good feeling about The Open and Tiger. I'd have an even better feeling if he did some serious pre-tournament recon. Personally, I think he should take his two kids for a two-week vacation over to Scotland and do some sight-seeing, feel good about the fam.....and play 8 or 9 rounds of golf a...

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

Molinari's ballstriking was unbelievable. He deserved the win, hands down. 8 or 9 strokes ahead of 2nd place. Yet, Tiger hit the ball extremely well too. If he made all those putts that lipped out, he would have finished a close second. A T4 finish, while having nearly the worst putting stats in the...

Re: 2018 summer support group

Different here, I guess. I just looked at tee time availability for the rest of today at WM. Over the next 6 hours, until 7:30 pm, it's pretty much wide open. As of this moment, there are only 7 tee times which have 2 or more people scheduled, out of 36 potential tee times. This is not typical on a ...

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

Tiger is playing well. -5 through 16 holes. Are you watching Jason? I am watching on PGA Tour Live. I have a subscribtion for another week. But just lost connection for some reason. I also have Tiger Tracker on Golf Channel working, so not missing a shot. If you are watching, what are you watching o...

Re: 2018 summer support group

That might keep the crowds down. You might want to play. If you can handle 35* temps, then you can do 95*. Go late afternoon. Best time to get through nine or 18 quickly. (Also the hottest part of the day, but sacrifices must sometimes be made.)

Re: 2018 LPGA thread

My favorite part of this so-called tournament is when they drag out Mickelson's ass and put him in some commercials where they use green screen technology to make it look like he actually gives a shit about women's golf, or knows who Stacy Lewis is. Actually, I've seen Phil play golf with Stacey a ...

Re: 2018 summer support group

Said I was going to take a day or two off, and I did. But, it didn't help. Nothing is working. Confidence is eroding. Started yesterday's round birdie/birdie. Thought things might be better. Nope. Ended with an 87. Ouch! Just not comfortable out there right now. The worse it gets, the worse it gets....

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

Just took a gander at the Quicken Loans field (Tiger's tournament) for this upcoming weekend here in the DC area at TPC Potomac at Avenell Farm . I was planning to go one day to see Tiger. I was thinking perhaps Friday, just to make sure he is still playing and hasn't missed the cut yet. Tickets are...

Re: 2018 summer support group

I'm in putz-mode right now. Taking a day or two off to maybe change the algorithm (and give my aging, overused muscles a break). I hope you can stay in hero-mode for awhile. I know it isn't easy BK, but it sure is satisfying (and confidence-building) while it lasts.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Golf is cruel, totally cruel. This is how today's round started: 1. Good drive, good 9i but needed an 8i, chip, make nice curling putt for par. 2. Good drive but slipped on the approach shot. Even though I hit the shot on one leg almost falling down, hit it to pin high just 30 yards left. Pitched t...

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-s...

Re: Just Keep Swimming

Try moving the ball an inch or two forward in your stance for a touch more spin and potentially, a better launch angle. Just for shits and giggles and to see what happens. Don't change anything else.

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

Course builders in the 1920s couldn't imagine green speeds that we are seeing today. Newer courses have relatively flat areas where pins are placed. Some older courses don't have areas that are relatively flat. Exactly. I have been saying this (and probably have here on this site at some time or an...

Triple digits with humidity today. Next few months are going to suck. Going to break down soon and visit the simulator. There's a new one in the neighborhood. Beef, buck up and go play. No one else wants to be out there in that kind of heat, including me, but, I expect to have the whole course pret...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

GBogey, that's impressive considering the father/son team you played with. That would totally affect my game in a negative way, worrying about the groups behind me and being guilty by association. I understand your point about losing 2-3 strokes by trying to speed things up. I would do the same. Bei...
