On their honeymoon night, Lisa tells her husband that she has a secret to tell him. "I'm sorry I never told you before, but I used to date Tiger Woods." "Well honey, that's okay. It was before we met, and I love you!" They proceed to consumate the marriage, and afterwards the husband reaches for the phone. "What are you doing?" Lisa asks. "Calling room service. I'm starving!" "That's not what Tiger would do..." "What would Tiger do?" "Tiger would come...
Saturday morning at my home course. I'm standing on #5 tee box, lining up my shot. It's a par 3, about 150 yards downhill with a creek guarding the front of the green. On the left side of the green along the creek is a huge cottonwood tree that blocks #6 tee box from sight. #6 runs parallel to #5, but heading west (#5 heads east.) The fairway of #6 is perhaps 40 yards or so north of #5 box.   I hear "fore!" and before I can move or react, I get hit in my left side,...
I'll play. My home course is 70.8/124 @ 6507 yards from the blue tees. I'm averaging 85 over the last month or so, with an 81 for low round and a 95 for high. I shot 88 yesterday. The red tees are 67.6/118 @ 5125 yards. My regular group plams to play the reds on Saturday the 18th. Should be interesting. I'm predicting an 80 for my score. The greens are a little rough right now, so it's hard to get a putt to roll like it should. I figure to hit a few more greens in...
I know I'm coming way late to this thread, but I would be tickled pink to hit a drive 250 yards. A good one for me is more like 220, and most are closer to 200. They are, however, right down the middle - almost every time. My index has dropped from 22.6 to under 15 over the last three months, and it hasn't been because I murder drives. I chip and putt well, because I spend a lot of time practicing chipping and putting. I don't see golf as being about how big my...
4. Yesterday. Including 2 of the first 3 and 3 of the first 7.
Everyone under age 60 is playing the blue tees, regardless of handicap. My partner and I scrambled the front 9 last night after work. We were 1 over, with one birdie and two bogeys. My partner hit last off the tee, and I putted last. It worked fairly well. This should be fun - I'm really looking forward to the weekend. Thanks for the advice!
Thanks for the pointers. I figure we'll need to stay around par to have a shot in our flight, and now we'll at least have some sort of plan in place.
I'm playing in a two-man scramble this coming weekend at my club. It's 18 holes per day over the three day weekend. My playing partner is about the same as I am, handicap-wise. He hits the ball further than I do, but my chipping and putting is a bit sharper for the most part. Any ideas out there as far as strategy? I'm thinking I should tee-off first, aiming to put one safely in play down the middle, letting my partner go for the long one if he can. I'm thinking I...
I'm less than a year in after a 10 year lay-off from golf. I played poorly for the most part before I quit. I had a nice touch around the greens, and I could make some putts, but my long game was always pretty bad. Last summer, an old golfing buddy enticed me back out. I fell in love with the game again, and decided that I was going to learn how to hit a golf ball properly. I joined the local country club and I signed up for a series of lessons. My practice routine...
I'm not good enough at golf... to get mad over golf.
