Re: ... about to put ______ in the video player

Yes, last year. Somewhat realistic at times. At first I thought you were referring to the book by the same name, written by Stephen Callahan, who survived 76 days alone at sea in a life raft. When I first saw the movie "Adrift" advertised I thought is was his story. But, it is a different story. Cal...

Re: Spring 2019 Golf

Rough stuff "rolled" in as I just finished a putt for bird on the 11th today. Kind of cool sky. The clouds really rolled. There were tornados, but we only got intense wind and rain. My internal sailing antenna estimates about 60 knots or more (about 70 mph). Click on video below after it runs throug...

Re: Weighted club

Jason, I agree with you. On both points. The Orange Titleist Red Whip :quotez is excellent for swing tempo and the only reason I use it. I certainly don't expect to gain swing speed and did not start using it for that 4 or 5 years ago. Secondly, I too have been researching the SSG system and have re...

Re: Weighted club

Orange Whip. Last I heard, there was one in a large percentage of Tour players' bags. There is one in mine too. Everyday, before I swing a club I find my tempo with my Orange Whip. (However mine is painted Titleist red! Orange clashed in my bag. ;) )

Re: WTF did you buy today?

I'm pissed. The retailer contacted me AFTER the club (Titleist 818H2 21* hybrid) was supposedly "on the way" and told me that he doesn't have that club to sell me anymore and had refunded my account. Evidently, he oversold it. He had a bunch of them listed on Ebay and sold more than he actually had....

I'm playing 4-5 18-hole rounds a week right now. I only post scores for my official handicap, when my play m...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

Only hit the Evenflow blue once and it was very noticeably smooth. Tried a friend's 818H1 hybrid which had a 6.0 stiff in it. I considered the 5.5 (R+), but couldn't find one to try. Since I already play Tensei Blue stiff in my other 818H (plus driver and 3W too), I figured I could handle the 6.0. W...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

I love my 4i but the rough is getting so thick now, I am having trouble getting it through squarely, even by swinging extra steeply. So I decided to pick up a small-headed Titleist 818H2 21* hybrid (w/Project X EvenFlow Blue stiff 85g shaft) to use in the 4i spot when the rough is this thick. I alre...

Great shot! And, I thought I had a couple awesome shots today at a course I have only played once before. Reached two par 5 greens in two, dead center; one with a hybrid and the other a 3W. Unfortunately neither resulted in eagle because BOTH finished well PAST the green, running all the way through...

I guess they are playing preferred lies? Is it that wet? If so the rough is probably even more brutal than normal.
Are they, or was Molinari's ball plugged? He dropped from knee height, so I don't think it's LCP.

True, but an Am MUST have 1.4 index or lower.
And, FWIW, the pros playing today all seem to be better than your average PGA teaching professional, at least the ones I saw. Some big names (as pros in the area go.)

Re: Random golf news

The US Open Qualifier is still going on with only the morning tee times finishing so far. Based on that half of the field, the scores prove, once again, that Worthington Manor is a tough-ass track. There are about 120 actually playing. (The field was 130, but about 10 withdrew or DNS.) The highest h...
