Yeah, I heard the news on Golf Channel yesterday.   He won after 38 or 39 tries.   That's perseverance. Ditto for Ken Duke. I saw his playoff win on TV and was all pumped.    They should pair those two at the Masters.

Some of those old timers are no joke.  They might not hit it far but they hit it really straight.  Usually straight is better than far.

I am not surprised. The best golfers I see around here are in the 40-60 range. My home course was once a private course that runs through a 50+ community. There are a lot of really good middle aged members there.

That's awesome, gives me hope that I've still got some good years of golf to enjoy.  Now I just can't wait to start enjoying some good golf.

Oh Geez.......I was expecting to read about a much older golfer!!!  When I think Mid-Am.......I think 35-54. Keep in mind, 55 is the age requirement to enter the SR AM.   I had no idea the age requirement was reduced to 25.  I thought it was 35!!

Hahaha.......with that said, the guy was only 50 for Pete's sake!!   I looked it up....he won the championship match 8&6.....4&3 in the Semis, 7&6 in the quarters........OMG!!!!  I consider that a bigger story than him being 50! WOW.....talk about kicking some ARSE!!

I didn't know 50 was "old". That was almost 8 years ago and I don't think I'm old now.

May have lost a step or two in the 40 over the years but I don't have to run the 40 in golf.

    • Hauling your clubs in a extended cab truck
      I am really enjoying my set up. I whole heartedly recommend the the switchblade/bedrug combo. Anyone who sees it feels the the same. I am sure that other rolling covers work to but man is this deal slick. I always have my clubs with me and it is like a big golf locker in the bed of my truck now. If anyone cares I can post some images or video of it.
    • Reading Greens
      Amazingly for how terrible I am at putting (and golf), I also try to take that into account too. But per your posts, I'm clearly so ignorant I expect AimPoint is too far over my head to tackle at this stage. I probably have to become a much better golfer before I can properly understand these complex concepts. For me, the reference at the hole helps me extrapolate back to the initial ball position in steps. It's not important to me that you think it's correct. It's simply a visual aid for the kind of mental picture per the images below for the section around the hole; which relates to the prior section, which relates to the section before that, which relates to my initial ball position.   Corresponding to this:  Really? I had no idea that a putt could double break. I have to rethink my whole approach now, dag nab it.   I said it was an aid to visualizing, not a 'method'.  I pay attention to the area around the hole because that is where the ball will usually (hopefully) be slowest (other than situations like going up a ridge) and therefore prone to break more for a given slope. I am also often doing clock drills and again the yardstick provides a reference point for the 'final destination' area around the hole. Besides, don't all greens have about 2* of slope around the hole (& extending outward) on average anyway, so knowing the particular amounts of slope between the initial location of the ball and the hole don't really matter to the outcome?  First time I've seen that. I'd expect the system did that as I universally just hard return between lines of a quoted post and only copy/paste items from off the site. <yup, the quotes were fine in the edit and as soon as I posted, the attribution was dropped. Perhaps a programming error?>
    • GPS, WHY ?
      The GPS measurements is more of a side benefit to using Game Golf to track my game. I don't think that I'll ever buy any dedicated device for measuring distances either gps or laser range finders, but if I were ever given one as a gift or won something I would it.
    • My irons keep breaking
      Have you ever dropped the clubs or had them fall of a carriage?
    • GPS, WHY ?
      Oh come on, give us mid handicaps something to dream about if we ever get to become a low single digit player!
