  1. What's my secret to scoring in the 70s?  Play 9 holes.

    Yeah I saw someone hit the ball into a bunker and it just bounced and rolled, no sand movement at all lol
  3. LOL Christ it looks like he's having a seizure
  4. 2015 Hero Indian Open, Delhi, India

    I watched about a half hour or so this AM before going to work.  Some of the worst pro golfing I've ever seen.  I don't know if everyone has food poisoning or if the constant car honking from the nearby traffic is the cause.
  5. Most embarrassing moments on the course?

    Any time a slower group allows you to tee off and pass them up is nerve wracking for me.   I don't like an audience and these are the times that any kind of mishit seems to be pretty amplified.
  6. Bubba Watson....Fan or not a fan?

    Why am I not surprised by the odd and random capitalization.  I find "faith" to be a character flaw.  If you know something to be true you have no use for faith.  Bubba is a good golfer but I was cheering hardcore for Jordan Spieth.
  7. Finally an intermediate golfer

    Good job, sounds like you're doing fine.  Lessons were BIG in my development.  Seems like so many golfers shy away from them I don't know why.  I know guys that have been golfing for many years and they struggle with a bad slice, still to this day they haven't taken a lesson.  The only time I slice is with my 3 wood ;)

    I'm offering the two videos that made an impact to my game.  They may help! Hitting on plane Hitting your driver;=PLACF95D0610C12FDC&index;=2
  9. Finally an intermediate golfer

    Yeah my golf course is awesome, you pay $299 for the year and you get unlimited range balls and twilight play for 10 bucks.  So now I don't even go to the range much I just play.  Did you take any lessons?
  10. Finally an intermediate golfer

    It's taken me 3 years, but I finally consider myself an intermediate golfer.  This year I really dedicated myself to the game of golf.  Playing twice a week at least.  I have a card with my local course to have unlimited range balls for a fee.  I hacked and played terrible for a year and a half.  I had lessons last year, I think 5 or 6 of them.  My game previous to this year was very inconsistent. This year started out a little frustrating.  I watched some youtube videos on the things I was struggling with.  I feel that I had enough course time and training to be able to watch a video and implement what they were talking about.  My pitching and chipping has really come along, putting is getting there.  The last two games I played I've walked off the course with a smile.  No lost balls, pars and mainly bogeys is my game right now.  I'm not trying to be a scratch golfer, I just wanted to get to where I didn't embarrass myself. Mission accomplished. When did you realize that you "made it" out of the doldrums of bad play and things were starting to click?
  11. What'd You Shoot Today?

    Shot a 96 lastnight at Dauphin Highlands.  It's a fairly difficult course [for my level anyway] but it's probably the 2nd best round I've done.  I was under a 100 last week as well, I hope this trend continues.
  12. McIlroy, absolutely textbook swing, a work of art.
  13. Good friend is a golf cheater

    I have a best friend who will not count mulligans when tallying his score but he's not bragging about his score later.  It doesn't bother me, but the guy you're describing, I wouldn't be golfing with him.  It's one thing to move your golf ball that's sitting on a stone or something like that, but to keep getting himself out of trouble by moving his ball around, that's the work of a dishonest man.
  14. Fell in love with the short game

    Yeah the thing that got me was that hitting a nice used to be the highlight of each hole.  But then after doing that, hosing up the approach shots and then putting 4 times just drove me crazy.  Now...I don't give a damn so much about a crushing drive.  I care more about getting the ball on the green with one shot [approach] and then putting once or twice.  That is much more satisfying.
  15. Fell in love with the short game

    I hate the chipping me it's like someone saying "I couldn't figure out how to chip right so I bought a club that does it for me."
