Regardless, the weather channel upped their % to 30 and Fox 8 is calling for 50%. Hoping for 0%.

 

I've worked and or gone to school downtown for the past 4 years. Maybe they were better in Dick Goddard's hay day, but they suck now. Almost always wrong. 

 

They should just say "Partly cloudy with a chance of rain" every day, and they'd always be right. lol

Just to verify, we only need to do the 50 if we are able to do it without fees?

Yeah. It's very simple to figure out...just do it like you're sending money to a friend. You're not buying any merchandise from him.

Yeah, I already had it set to send, just wanted to make sure.

Looking forward to Saturday! It should be a great time. I'm hoping that I can resolve my pull problem with the driver on Friday. I'll be hitting the range with several large buckets in my attempt to do so... for the fourth time this season.

Erik,  I'll bring cash.

Shot a 41 tonight and didn't play all that well. 2 poor shots and a 3 putt for bogey. Hit 4 greens in reg and made 4 pars though.

The point behind that is...my unofficial handicap is calculated at 15.1 now lol. Good call Erik. Haha.

Maybe he's been sandbagging all along! Maybe he figures he can always come back and say "Oops, I meant 1.5 guys". He's in my group though, so I'll just look the other way and sip a beer.

Golfed horribly again in league tonight. My timing is just off by miles. One swing my hands are ahead and next my hands are too far behind. Hoping this doesn't carry over to Saturday.

I actually did a little drill in my office today a few times and it really helped me out with my pull. After work, I started hitting my draw at the range again. This video combined with going back to a more neutral grip seems to have fixed my issue, though who knows for how long. My grip was a little too strong though and my right hand was too far under the club. I think it was causing me to "hood" the club more and keep it closed and pointing to the ball during my back swing, rather than having the toe pointing more to the sky and having the face more perpendicular to the ground. I don't mean to be off topic or anything, but this damn drill definitely helped my feel of the right arm staying inside and below the left arm. Hopefully it helps somebody else as well.

lol...I wish. That's the goal for next year...to be damn near scratch. Considering the amount of improvement I've made in the past 2 months, I can see it happening. Single digits by the end of the year is looking more realistic...which was my original goal. ALMOST carded my first eagle today...

 

135-140 yards, pulled the PW and hit a STRIPE...here was the result...thought it was gonna go in after it hit (Drew a line to see how close it actually was...)
