Urban Golf

I’m enjoying the weather, reading outside with a water view in the park and I swear to god I heard the sound of well struck wedge. I turn around and lo and behold this. Dude is practicing finesse wedges.  Golf, finds a way. I’ve thought of doing this myself but never got around to it.

New Golf Studio in Staten Island, New York

I don't shill often, but will shill for my current instructor's new studio, will let the video speak for itself. I think it will officially open in a week or two. Roomy bays and Flightscope. Will post photos when I take next lesson.

Gonna Try Knitting a Yoda Headcover

Downloaded the instructions from Etsy. Getting ahead of myself though, still learning the basics of knitting, casting on, knit stitch, so this is gonna take awhile, will post progress here. My Jan Craighead cover is in its last days, and always wanted to make my own. Now that I know a little more about knitting, I see how good the quality of Jan Craighead covers are. None of the free patterns out there look as good. Another thing doing it myself is I can make the covers extra long, because most

Staving Off Inevitability

I got reading glasses, well, progressive lenses, put it off as long as I possibly could, can make due with regular glasses, but easier at the computer and duh, reading, with these. Turning my head from left to right and right to left and everything is warping. I guess sooner or later, I'm gonna be the guy with the glasses in the straps hanging from my neck, and tilting my head down, looking at people when I talk. Sigh.

Civilian helicopter landing in 240 fps

I like watching landings because I like experiencing the prop blast of wind. What can I say? Didn't stick around to see who came out. It looks like I'm holding the camera steady during high frame rate, but that wind is blowing around my arms pretty good.

Montreal bagels

Went to Montreal's two well known bagel shops a couple of times. St Viateur and Fairmount. Although I've had Montreal style bagels at Black Seed Bagels in NY, wanted the real thing. Not religious about which is better, they are different. Montreal bagels are crunchier on the outside, more dense on the inside, a bit smaller, a big plus for me, cheaper, and there are some interesting types - rosemary for one. I'm not sure what seedless was. Nonetheless, I really liked them, but they're different f

American slang/idioms

Rewatching Band of Brothers, there's this scene where a CO says "Channel is socked in. No jump tonight!". Having seen BoB so many times, never bothered to look up "socked in". In context, knowing the situation, Operation Overlord, you just easily guessed D-Day was postponed because weather. But this time, I actually looked up "socked in". http://www.wordwizard.com/phpbb3/viewtopic.php?t=24601 OED https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/sock MW https://www.merriam-

Novice t-shirt designer

Am by no means artistic, but I have fun making up t-shirts when an idea percolates. This one is in tribute to Jonny Greenwood, who recently scored Phantom Thread. The repeating note is from one of the themes used in the movie. I thought this one would sell, but alas, no takers.

Going from HD to 4K/HDR

4K/HDR is better than I thought it would be. Usually an earlier adopter regarding things tech so late to the 4K train, didn't think it would be that much of an improvement, but beginning to see more of a difference than when in the store, looking at different TVs. When you're at home, rewatching the shows you're used to seeing in HD, that's the better distinguisher. It helped that the new screen is bigger too, going to 65 from 50. Could have bought earlier, but saved a ton waiting a bit, go

Practicing With Video - Tips That May Hopefully Help You

Some of this is obvious for experienced players, I'll list them anyway for the benefit of those starting out. Will add as I learn/discover more.   Duh, camera angles are very important. You probably know this already, but will mention it anyway. Always bring an alignment stick, which will make pointing your camera much easier. You may hit a cr@p shot, but video may redeem you by showing you you actually did what your instructor advised. That's a good thing, you're changing the

    • Which is exactly what I’ve been trying to tell him all this time!! If he gonna be on the team, he’s gonna have to play tournaments in the summer, by the coach’s request. He hasn’t been listening to me that well. He probably practiced twice all summer, and even that was for only half an hour or so. To his credit though, he came out and played with me today. Scores to come later tonight! 
    • Oh brother!  He's a North Carolinian... you play in the heat.  I grew up in St. Louis.  If you want to play golf you've got to play in the heat and, in the Spring, you've got to play in the wind.
    • The date is set. We are playing Valhalla a week from Thursday on Oct. 1st. I finally played a round this weekend. It wasn't too terrible after 2+ months without touching a club. I don't think there is much I can fix between now and then, but I wondered how much trouble I would get in if I set the net up in our family room, It's actually my drum room.
    • I made huge improvements in 6 months by working on 5SK skills  While reading LSW. He’s just got to put the work in. 
    • Thinking L to L helps me sync my swing and the ball flight is much better.  I too have a backswing sooo long that it sways me off the ball.  The L-2-L drill and thinking slow backswing like Matsuyama is helping.
