Re: The Grumble Thread

It's not private. It a top-tier, daily fee public course with membership options, but no option to keep others from paying and playing if they have the cash and, one would hope, the game. Unfortunately the latter isn't always something they have. And etiquette, IMO, is a big part of the game.

Re: The Grumble Thread

As I mentioned in the WTF Did You Shoot Today? thread, I had a good round going yesterday until we ran into a Korean women's outing who was finishing up on the 15th green when we pulled up to the tee. Up until that point, I was playing some good golf. They took me out of my rhythm the rest of the wa...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Played well until running into the backside of a Korean women's outing on the 16th (who were 9 holes ahead when we started). It ruined the good rhythm I had been working with all day. Still carded a 79 (38/41), but was only 3 over after 14. Played the first 15 holes in about two hours. It took anoth...

Re: Random golf thoughts

It could be: B. You have subconscious issues with Bernie idolizing you and are uncomfortable with his reverence. That may be part of it. Maybe because I think HE expects me to play much better than him. I don't want to disappoint him. I'm sure, subconsciously (or possibly consciously) I want him to...

Re: Random golf thoughts

I'm thinking the opposite - you probably are putting too much pressure on yourself to play better since you know you should be +8 shots. I started feeling that way about one of my friends in NJ before I left. It seemed like I was always playing below my normal game when I was with him. Granted his ...

Re: Random golf thoughts

Doug, maybe you are becoming a bit complacent with your own game, expecting an easy win by 7-8 strokes as you say and in turn fail to focus adequately on your own shots. Things like club selection, target selection, aiming accuracy and even swinging (slower swing, coming out of the shot earlier, et...

Re: Random golf thoughts

At least 10Xs a summer. Probably more like 25Xs during the year. I also play 150+ rounds without him. And not that I don't have the occasional poor round when I'm not playing with him, but it's uncanny how often I play poorly with him, particularly over the last few months. It's like I get the yips,...

Re: Random golf thoughts

So, I have played some decent golf this year. However, there is one guy I play with regularly, Bernie, who is about 7-9 strokes higher in handicap than me, and for whatever reason, seems to bring the worst out of my game. When we first started playing a couple seasons ago, that wasn't the case. Back...

Re: The Tiger Thread

Agreed.

And though his driving has never been great, there were times throughout his career where it was much better than it is right now....or at least, was yesterday.

Re: The Tiger Thread

That realistic chance at eagle, which turned into a three-putt par, really hurt. But he is in the mix, yet AGAIN. For anyone who thinks he's washed up, think again. Is Rickie Fowler washed up? I don't think so. He, too, always seems to be in the mix. Just not as much as Tiger's been lately.

Chill. He's okay. A little rough start, but there are still over 70 holes to play. Have some faith.

Re: 2018 summer support group

Yeah, I'm there to play golf too. And some babe walking around with a body like that, in an outfit like that, would not only catch my attention, but take my mind off my game, particularly if she was close by or in my group. On the other hand, I get to play plenty of golf, so I might just give up and...

I wear modern-day golf clothing, not cotton pleated shorts and heavy cotton pique polos. (It's not 1985 anymore!) Nike, UA, CB, FJ, Sketchers, Adidas, etc. Made-for golf-stuff. I like the fact I can play with no hindrance of movement for 18 holes, then go to an office or a bar afterward without my c...

Re: 2018 summer support group

Yeah, I fall on the traditionalist side. I personally don't think the golf course is a place for tank tops, tee shirts, jeans or loud stereos. It's about respecting the game, and the traditions of the game. It's what attracted me to golf as a young teen. If I wanted otherwise, I would have taken up ...

Re: 2018 summer support group

Maybe I come off like an old woman, but hey, I am still getting carded when I buy beer. That's because this old woman doesn't have a leathery face from habitually going out and standing in the summer sun for five plus hours at a time, waiting to hit golf shots. Yeah, I still get carded too. But not...

Re: The Tiger Thread

Thinking about how well he has played in the few tournaments he's been in this year, I'm encouraged, but worried the clock is ticking. Certainly, he is not like the Tiger of 10-15 years ago, but his game is better than most of the field's on a pretty regular basis. IMO, right now he is on a similar ...

I have this feeling tiger goes really low today. Something like 62 or 63. I wouldn't put money on that, just an odd feeling.

My Worthington Manor regular, and LPGA girl, Thidapa, made the cut and is showing some game. Sitting at T31, 1 under after the first two rounds of the Women's British Open. Ariya, Moriya, Thidapa and Pornanong Phatlum (who is presently holding the 36 hole lead), are all from Thailand. Pretty impress...
