Re: Anomaly

Sorry, I don't have access to that link (I never signed on at skygolf.com) and it dumps me onto a meaningless page of "recent" scores which all have a date well into the future, from 2022 to 2035! Same old crap related to not curating/sanitizing their data. :fk Anyhoo, congrats are in order to BK, f...

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

I like all kinds of cookies, with no milk (and no milk in my coffee either...). And although I am not as hardcore a fan as Doug is, I DVR every PGA Tour round, some of European Tour (mostly Dubai and Asia) and try to watch portions of them. Sometimes, things get in the way, including actual golf, an...

Hate Bryson's swing and his "I'm so special" aura. Hate Sabbatini's general attitude. Hate Keegan's pre-shot cha-cha dance.
Yup. Same exact reasons for me.

Re: Who's your least favorite bigger name player?

I voted Bryson, Keegan and Rory S. Yes, Webb Simpson would have been one of them for me too, ahead of Bryson. At times Bubba grates badly also, but I go back and forth on him. I don't see anything wrong with any of the others: in fact I had to push myself to make Bryson the third one (the other 2 we...

Re: The Tiger Thread

Btw, I am with Beef and Doug on this one. Without saying that he will win 5 majors this year, it's pretty obvious after a dozen or so rounds on the PGA Tour this year that Tiger is (and maybe will stay) competitive. And I say: welcome back. I would love for Tiger to get to 83 wins in his career and ...

I have decided that if Tiger enters the weekend of the Masters inside the top ten, then I will whip up some of that pimiento cheese spread. Inside the top 10 what?

Re: Random golf thoughts

Or another (probably stupid, but here goes) idea: ban the driver for the pros, as part of the hard card for the USGA, R&A and PGA Tour. It seems that most of them have a 3 wood that goes 280 or so, or maybe a bit more. Voila: problem solved. No need for a rule change or anything. It's just a conditi...

Re: Random golf thoughts

Even if the USGA and R&A are right about distance getting out of control (hint: it isn't), any remedy should only apply to professional golfers and not the rest of us. Can you imagine "reining in the ball 20%" for our game? Instead of say a 240 yard drive, which is admittedly pushing it for me, it w...

Re: Random golf thoughts

Agreed with you Beef. But Doug has a great point. He and I aren't getting any younger and we mostly got what we've got in terms of distance. Sure, you can always fine tune the swing to get more accuracy. Hitting greens closer is easier from the fairway than the rough or fairway bunkers. Also, hittin...

I played one of the munis around here today, trying to plan around the rain. We had a pretty good soaking yesterday at about 1.5 inches (finally, yeah!), so I figured the place would be less crowded. There was no problem with the water pooling on the course, as it was bone dry before. There were mor...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

If you hit a 7 iron 140 yards or less, then a 6 iron should be the longest iron in your set. The 3,4,& 5 should be hybrids. If you hit your 7 iron 150-160 yards, consider nothing longer that a 5 iron , 3 & 4 should be hybrids If you can hit your 7 iron 170 yards, nothing longer than a 4 iron, 3 sho...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

Yesterday I finally broke down and got a hybrid for my primary set. After trying to love my 4 iron for over a year, I realize I can only manage to hit it well when the ball is teed up, so that kind of limits its usefulness... I found a real nice 4 hybrid on the Callaway PreOwned website for around $...

I don't recall anything great for the month, but I had a nice chip-in birdie from the left side of the green, nearly pin high (but on the far side, so lots of roll to the pin), with a sidewinder. I clipped the ball perfectly, landed it on my spot and watched it hit the slope, bounce right, start rol...

Re: Handicap Changes on the way

I would add that with a course handicap of 18 or 19, your max ESC score is currently 7 for all holes, regardless of par; it will become 6, 7 or 8 (mostly) depending on the par. So overall, hardly any difference at all in this case.

Re: Handicap Changes on the way

It's net double bogey max, not double bogey max, so if your index is 17.3, your course handicap is 18 or 19 on nearly all courses and you get one handicap stroke on every hole and sometimes (harder courses) on hole handicap #1. Net double bogey means 6 on par 3s, 7 on par 4s and 8 on par 5s, with th...

Re: 2018 Winter Season Support Group

I suspect that your driving position is slightly tilted to the right (i.e. towards the pedals), causing stress on your left side. Not making things better are keeping your wallet in the rightside back pocket. I do both of these things (the wallet comes out for long drives though), and I have a soren...

Mizzy JPX 900s would be one of my top considerations if I couldn't have my Titleist AP2s or AP3s. I have hit both the JPX 850 Pros and the 900 Pros. Very nice feel. Good distance. Forgiving. Workable. And also of utmost importance, nice to look at. I was quite impressed. I still love a players-styl...
