Yeah I could see that. I mean they have a large selection of approved house colors. I don't know how people can choose from the 6 colors, it's just too many options.

I'm still waiting for your food recommendations for Irvine beef (or duke).

I only have 1 night unplanned this time, but I go out there 1 or 2 times a year for work. So for future reference it would be good.

I was being dishonest with the fun part of "food and fun". I don't know where to find fun in Irvine. You are staying at the Spectrum, which is where all the action is, you should have all you need there. There is a place inside there I genuinely enjoy, it's called Saigon Pearl. Not sure about the sandwiches but the pho noodle soup is top notch. There is also a Korean fusiony type place called Urban Seoul which I thought was decent. Finally I recently dined at the Del Frisco Grille and it was fine, typically 'merican steakhouse chow. If you go here note that it is a Grille and not a Grill and as such, wear a clean shirt.

Yeah inside spectrum I've been to some "Mexican" restaurant Javiers or something (really more tex-mex or cali-mex than true Mexican food). My manager at the time loved watching real house wives and they went there a lot apparently. She said she wanted to go there, and I wasn't going to pitch a fit over it. Plus I normally like Mexican food.

Also I've gone to Wood Ranch BBQ Grill (BBQ isn't BBQ when it's cooked on a grill). It's stupid to go to a BBQ place in California when my entire life I've lived in the south (and Florida), but again I was with someone else and that is what we went with. Then I've also gone to the Yard House.

I wasn't impressed any of those 3, well Yard House isn't bad but I have one 15 min from my house, so why go there? I mean all of them were fine, but forgettable. Maybe I'll give Saigon Pearl a chance on the 1 day I don't have anything planned. But I'll be with 2 other people from Virginia, so it will depend on what they want as well.

I really liked Gena or what ever it was. I'd never done Korean BBQ before and I thought it was interesting. I mean the food was ok for what it was, but I hadn't ever done that type of restaurant before. So it's worth a try next time you are there. But I suspect you have Korean BBQ places in NYC, so it may not be interesting to you.

I'm not too familiar with the restaurants in Irvine. I'm sure there's some good places. Irvine, in general, plays quite cookie cutter in my mind. You might find some less corporatized fare in Laguna or Newport. Downtown Santa Ana for Mexican food.

Might but is it really worth the trouble. Is my question. Still in Orange County after all. There might be a few pockets of individuality here and there but by and large there are no secrets to uncover. When in Rome do as the Romans do. When in Irvine go to the Spectrum.

Agreed for the most part. Just trying to be helpful. I love really good food and often lament not living in a big city. Too much of a headache to drive to L.A. for a meal, though.

So the only new places I went we're the Marriott (always fun eating at the hotel) and Habana.

Habana was a surprisingly good Cuban restaurant in spectrum. And that is saying a lot given I grew up in little Havana aka Tampa

I do. In fact, it was there that I was introduced to it by my older sister when I was a youth.

The down side to Habana is it's "fancy". Every good Cuban place in Tampa is a hole in the wall that is dirt cheap.

Try Versailles if ever in LA area, think you'd like it. Big, old-fashioned portions. There is a different Versailles in Miami, not as good IMO.

Completed one of my "major" championships the past 3 days. This marked my 28th Ann Arbor Men's City Golf Championship. One of my fellow competitors was born the year I first started playing the event (1990). I am not used to playing at yardages of 6,600-6,700 anymore and my expectations were fairly limited. Surprisingly, at least to me, the biggest drag on my scoring was my short game.

My 252 total (84,85,83) put me in a tie for 50th place out of a field of 107, so my incompetence was matched by a fairly large percentage of the field.

Sunday, I was failing badly. 4-putted from 20 feet (uphill & straight) on #8 and made the turn with a "46". 2 1/2 rounds of walking in 90+ humid degrees had left me a bit fatigued and sore. Several years ago I had made a pledge that if I could not walk 18 and break 90 each day, I would stop playing in the event. My streak was in jeopardy.

I wish I could say during my "comeback" I struck the ball brilliantly on the back nine. The truth is I really had to grind hard. Pulling out an 83 for the day did not involve pretty golf. It was messy. I was so happy just to have the whole thing over when the final putt dropped. I needed some AC and beer, STAT!! ;)

Brian, that is impressive at that yardage. Actually, that is impressive in tournament play at any yardage. You've got my respect. Well done.

88 for my first round in 6 weeks. Couldn't hit the ball at all but I just kept holing putts. In tiger terms I turned a 98 into an 88 today.

So much disappointment in my ball striking today. Not a single shot hit solidly. I just want to crawl into a corner and cry it was so bad.

I had a round like that last week where I almost cried on the 9th hole after my 3rd straight unplayable drive. But I didn't. Then when I hit another bad drive on the 10th and I lightly dropped my FW on the ground at which point the shaft broke. That was unfortunate because I was planning on hitting FW off the tee on 5 of the last 6 tee shots. Instead I used 3 Hybrids and 3 drivers - all perfect drives in the fairway - Go Figure.

Had a new shaft put on the FW the next day and it has been behaving well. Lesson learned.

So I got around to looking at stats for the round.

28 putts, this is my first sub 30 putting round in years, this includes a 3 putt from 18' on #14 where I mentally gave up and just blew a putt 8' past the hole. Then I decided to try to get my shit together for the last 3 holes (I didn't).

Here are my strokes lost to a scratch golfer.
Driving - 5.18
Approach - 7.28
Short Game - 4.52
Putting - 1.71 (gained)

So basically I putted like a PGA tour player today. I was so pissed at my ball striking my 3 playing competitors were amused at how I just walked everything in from about 12 on. I walked the ball into the hole on 4 of the last 7 holes. The craziest one was a 18' putt on #15, I knew off the club face it was in the hole and I started walking with about 10' left in the putt. I was 1 step away when it fell. I was just doing it out of frustration at the rest of my game and wanting to get done as quickly as possible, I don't normally do that. But the one on #15 even made me laugh.

Sometimes I think this game exists just to frustrate the heck out of some of us. I've been playing relatively indifferent golf this year, both pre and post move but even more so post move. Lots of decent scores but almost nothing really good and nothing really bad. Include a few bad practice rounds recently and irrational thoughts start creeping in. Mind you, I've played to about the same 7 handicap for 4 years, but suddenly I'm wondering if post move there's a new reality coming in and my game just isn't at good as it used to be.

Irrational thoughts come to an end on Saturday when I go to play a course I've only seen twice before and that is 2 shots harder than my old home course and 4 shots harder than what is becoming my new home course. A rock solid 78 for my lowest differential of the year. Rock solid in that everything worked pretty well - 9 fairways, no stinker drives, 11 GIRs - and the 78 included throwing away 2 shots early and making only 2 of 9 makeable putts.

So in my mind I'm about to enter a hot golf streak. And I return to my new home course, 4 strokes easier on Sunday and shoot another 78. 3 DB's early sealed the deal, but then played the last 10 holes +1. During that stretch I almost really pulled the round back when I hit 3 straight approach shots to 6 feet or less, but then only made 1 of the birdie putts. My other birdie make of the day - a putt from around 60 feet. Go figure. Gripe over.

Nice schizophrenic round. Blast 3 wood right penalty on 1, driver right penalty on 2, driver fairway on 4, 3 wood fairway on 5, driver right penalty on 7, driver fairway on 8, driver fairway on 9, driver 25 yds right of fairway on 10 (had 40 yds of trees with a 8 yd wide window keeping the ball low with a five iron to get back to fairway) driver just missed fairway 11, driver just missed fairway 13, driver fairway 14, 3 wood right penalty 15, 3 wood overcompensate left penalty 17, driver fairway 18. Five penalties on a course with water on 14 holes, and still managed an 83. :oh :roll: :?
I will stand in the fairway, I want to be out of your range.
