Careful about the terms you wish for.  Remember you gotta wish for 300 yard drives with the shape and trajectory you want that finish right on target.  300 yards with a 45˚ pull or slice two fairways over don't help a whole lot  b1_ohmy.gif

True, but I hit it about 230 on a decent drive. I would like to crack a few out to 300 even if they were off target.

I suppose there are two ways to make your wish come true.

Improve your swing a little, and get a driver with a .93 COR.

There's a service that thins your face, not sure where or for how much.

230*.93/.83*1.1= 283 plus 17 roll. It's possible.

Believe me, after a couple of those you would have to use your second wish to take back or straighten out your first wish. ;-)

 

BTW. I would take the wishes even though I don't need or want much that I don't already have.

Would your second wish be "in the fairway"?

Maybe. Or I might decide it wasn't that cool after all and use the remaining wishes on something else.

Reminds me of an old London finance joke.

 

Drunk chick hitting on City boy in wine bar: "So, what's the first thing you would do if you suddenly had 10 million pounds in the bank?"

 

City boy: "Go find the bastard who stole the rest of my money!"

  • The best of luck for myself and my loved ones. What good is $100M if you get hit by a bus tomorrow?
  • The best business savvy. You can make your money without directly wishing for money).
    • Alternative idea: wish for the ability to accurately predict the outcome of every major sporting event. Bam: you can make your money easily. :)
  • Never-ending happiness for myself and all loved ones. Cuz hell, even if you're poor, but you're happy, who gives a shit?

 

See, and I still have six wishes left.

 

I like your thinking.

10 wishes. One of the wishes would be for unlimited wishes.

Not even close.

The wishes can get you the money, and much more that money alone can't touch.

The wishes. And I'd make sure that one of the wishes was something really stupid and inconsequential, like that a meal I ordered would come out perfectly or something, just because it would feel good.

I would wish for a remote control for time. I could fast forward, rewind, pause, slow motion. The possibilities are endless.

Actually had never heard of it.

Besides the obvious, I'd wish to win every event in which I participated, never lose.    They would kick me out of casinos because I would win so much, I'd play professional sports and professional golf.    Everyone else could fight for second place.
