Shot 88 (43/45) today, on a course I shot 84 two weeks ago. Was really hoping for a flirt with 80 but my game was just not there today. Horrible day chipping and four 3-putts (including a par 3 from 12 feet). Ah well, its only March.
Had a similar run-in couple weeks ago. Invited a co-worker to join my friend and I for a round, this was his first time playing. I'm always aware of pace of play and letting others play through if the situation calls for it. Well, we tee off on #1 with nobody behind us. New guy is doing the typical things - topping, whiffing, chunking - so I keep an eye behind us the whole way. We get to the green and then I notice a threesome teeing off. We putt out and walk to the 2nd...
Just curious if anyone else is gaming the xFIXx full time? One of my playing partners gave me one to try during a round and I loved it. I usually play an e6 or V1x so initially I had some funny thoughts about the xFIXx. But damn, they feel good off the putter, I'm able to get a bit more distance, and have not noticed much, if any, inability to spin the ball. With the e6, often I played a shot factoring roll because I almost always had 10-15 feet of roll after the ball...
From my personal experience, the traction in wet weather is not an issue. My buddy lives in Oakland and we play courses in SF and all over the bay area, both of us wear TRUEs, and we have played in some foggy, nasty weather with lots of slippery conditions. Not one time has one of us slipped on a swing or walking on a weird lie. Now, these are the original version shoes but I suspect the 2012 traction gets similar results.    If only I could get used to barefoot running...
FINALLY ordered my phx white/blue to upgrade my original white/black True Tour. The thing is, my original pair is holding up so well I was hesitant to even order the new ones. I have put A TON of mileage in my TRUEs (got them back when they only took pre-orders), even wearing them to work on occasion (on my feet for 12 hour shifts, feel great). My original pair will be relegated to a range shoe when the new ones come in. Can't wait, these things look beautiful.  
His shoulder turn videos have helped me a lot this year. He's answered a couple of my questions over at the other site and I think his way of explaining things is fantastic. 
Yeah it is annoying. Its pretty much every shot now, so I don't know if its annoying or just so overdone. 
86 (43/43) on a par 71 course. Really felt like I could go 80 or lower today but shot myself in the foot before the round even started. Forgot my wallet at home so no range balls to warm up. Buddy got my round but we had to jump on the tee pretty quick. And we invited a co-worker who had never played before. Double bogey the first hole then rolled off 3 straight pars then back to back double bogeys. Pretty much threw my sub-80 out the window. Birdied #11 to get me back...
I use Golfshot on my iPhone, it tracks fairways, GIR, scrambling/sand saves, putts per hole, putts/GIR. Recently they added distance averages but often I forget to tell it track a shot.    The only thing I want additional is the ability to track shots inside a given yardage (like the 100 yard example above). You can add notes on their website, I might start using that after rounds and just keep track on a scorecard.
I've been throwing the idea around to my wife about trying to go to Rio to watch the golf. Will it be neigh impossible for tickets? Never been to an Olympic Games before.
