Re: Describe Your Best Shot of the Month

195-yard 4W approach from difficult downhill lie, with forced carry over large environmental hazard, over line of 3 or 4 bunkers protecting green, perfectly straight at pin, to just 10-12 feet past. Toughest hole on tough course. Best shot of month, year, maybe even career. (Missed the birdie putt b...

Re: Etiquette Questions

Where, exactly, was this nut sack when the drive in question hit it? (Don't say between a pair of legs.) Was it in my fairway, in a different fairway, or somewhere else? Was it where it was not supposed to be or was the tee shot undertaken with total disregard for the location of the nut sack (and t...

Re: How do you make doubles (or worse)?

I agree with you Doug. Hole 3 is tough enough but #12 is one miserable hole. There is something wrong with having to hit a lay up off the tee to a half blind, small landing area and then being faced with a 180 yard shot, all carry, over everything to a well bunkered, hard right to left sloping gree...

Re: "Hey, can I go ahead of you..."

My answer is typically "Sure, I don't care, as long as I don't end up waiting on you later in the round."

Re: Why I quit golf in November

The Arizona Biltmore courses are also fairly close, and I love them as well. They are only affordable for me during the summer, though. A membership there has a $5,000 initiation fee (looks like it's currently discounted to $2,750) and is $325 a month. Since that includes range balls, it's worth co...

Re: Why I quit golf in November

$5K is high for a public course membership (though there was one available at one of the nicest courses in CT where I used to live, for $8K/yr). I pay $3K for a 7-day membership at a highly-acclaimed, daily fee, public course which is maintained in excellent condition. In season, the reg rack rate i...

Re: How do you make doubles (or worse)?

For me, very simple, I play #3 or #12 at Worthington. (You've played them, CB, you know.) All the other screw ups I make on the course I can usually (not always) recover from. If you make the slightest mistake on 3 or 12, you're dead and most often getting deeply buried.

Re: MG Golf review (gloves)

Yes, their gloves are as good as their C-4 balls. I have enjoyed using them in the past. I do really like the FJ Pure Touch as well, though they are quite expensive. They are, frankly, more available than MGs. But neither is as readily available as a WeatherSoft when you need something quick. I try ...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

A 76 alone is one thing. A 76 in tournament play is very different. Extremely impressive! Add in the fact that your GHIN is somewhere in the 7-8 range (last I checked) and that it was at a course you played once many years ago, well, I am truly in awe. Fantastic Brian!

Re: Spring Golf Support Group

Okay, I finally put my toe back in the water. Talk about the man who called "Wolf!" Poor me. I am Captain Doug and I lost my game. I am only able to shoot an effin' 78. Boo hoo hoo. :eh: It was just the golf gods' way of pulling me back in. They will surely make me suffer and pay dearly for that 78.

It has been 9 straight days without DougE playing golf. Other than a weather related hiatus from 1/9/2016 to 2/22/2016, this may be the longest break he has taken in some time. Rumor has it he was seen carrying a tennis racquet. :shock: Doug, if you are out there, put the racquet down and walk away...

Re: Describe Your Best Shot of the Month

Second round up at Penn National the other day. Me and my brother. Hole 6, Par 3. Playing 168 to the pin. Elevated green, water right. Splashed it after drawing a 6i right of the green off the bank. Could have dropped just off the green for easy chip. But no. I was pissed and dropped on the box and...

Re: Anyone Think About Friday the 13th?

Funny, I hadn't realized it was Friday the 13th when CeeBee and I played together yesterday. Now that I look back on it, we both had a lot of bad luck during the round. We didn't pay poorly, but neither of us had great scores. Hmmmmm. Maybe there is something to this superstition thing.

It is perfectly within the rules to ask or offer distances in a competition. But, just because someone asks, it does not mean you have to give them the info. That is up to you.

I guess the guy that told me 2.4 and 3.4 (senior) wasn't as well-informed as I assumed. No matter, I ain't qualifying even at 7.4. I'm about a 9-10 now and my game is going in the wrong direction mostly due to nagging injury (injuries) and old age. (Funny, my mind thinks I'm only in my late 30s. Stu...
