Just finished it tonight.    Definitely worth the money!!
Mine was in the mail yesterday.   I made it to chapter 15 last night.    Good stuff!!
My handicap is correct as of the last revision on the 15th of this month.    I think it is premature to say I have moved on from bogey golfer status just yet though  since this was only one round.  Believe me, I hope this is just the first of many scores in that range but I think I need to back that one up at least a couple of times before I even begin to think about whatever the next step up is.    But I do appreciate the thought!  
69.8/124 from the tees I play (whites).   I think it needs re-rated though.   They have lengthened one of the par 5's, added a water hazard right in front of another par 5 and made some other changes to the course that, if I understand correctly, would at least warrant discussion about them.
Shot a new lowest score today, 82 (41/41).   I hit 8 fairways and 9 greens, which I thought was pretty good for me.   Needless to say, I am psyched about this round..   The thing that stuck out to me today was that I did a much better job of swinging with a good, smooth tempo.   
I swear, I could have typed this whole statement................      It literally describes my current issue with my driver perfectly.......     What kills me is, on the range, I have a great tempo with my driver and can pipe drives 250+ down range one after the other but the minute I step onto a tee box, it all goes away.
Ok, I said I was done but you directed this quesiton at me, so I will answer it and then I really am done. You brought up libel and slander.   Those are directed against an individual and for that individual to win, it will need to be shown that the individual has been personally damaged in some way.    A sports team name is not directed toward an individual and thus is far different that libel and slander.  One could argue that calling an individual a redskin might cause...
I disagreed with the part I highlighted in bold. And with that, I am done with this discussion.   My point remains that we have gone too far when we start chastising or censoring speech simply because somebody, somewhere, might be offended by it.
No.  Not right.   Libel is by definition a published false statement that is damaging to a person's reputation. Slander is a false statement, usually made orally, which defames another person.   Both of those pertain to an individual and in the case of slander, require proof of damage. Far different that a sports team name that has existed since 1932 and while perhaps offensive to some, has not damaged the reputation of any particular person.
I'll disagree with that.  Especially since the federal government has several definitions for what constitutes a Native American.
