About this blog

I have a lot of random things swirling around in my head from day to day, and some of them are even about things other than golf. I will use this space to ramble about anything that happens to be in that (mostly) hollow space between my ears whenever I have some time at the keyboard; golf, kids, food, the weird lady behind me at the supermarket yesterday ... whatever.

Night Time Is Supposed To Be My Time

I have come to be a big fan of sports on the other side of the globe.  Or, basically, any sporting event that I can watch live at night.  Starting at 7:30 pm is OK, but 8:30 or 9:30 is better.  At these times, I end up really enjoying events that may otherwise not be on my sporting radar.  The Australian (tennis) Open is the first that comes to mind.  Sitting on the couch, bored, and flipping stations to see if Princess Bride or My Cousin Vinny is playing on one of the stations I pay entirely to

We Love This Game! ... Right?

I've never watched the Family Guy so when this popped up on my Facebook feed the other day, it was the first I'd seen of it: I found it hilarious, partially because, well, it just is, and partially because I know some people with the same attitude as the guy there.  They claim to love the game yet appear from the outside to hate it.  They play golf whenever they can, practice when they can't play, watch the PGA Tour, LPGA Tour, or Web.com Tour (and would watch the local am tour if it was tele

    • Tell him the same thing we'd tell teammates after practice when they shaved their scores down when they played a shitty round. 103? 103? that sounds about right if you stopped counting on the 15th hole
    • He's your brother? Punch him in the nuts, tell him to stop cheating, and then schedule your next round together.
    • Exactly what I was thinking. He may hate me for it for a while, but if he’s gonna be on the team, he needs to start playing by the rules. 
    • It’s time for you to introduce him to the rules and etiquette of golf before this becomes a habit. The sooner the better. Sure, no big deal if he is only planning to be a casual golfer,  but if his intention is to eventually make it on the team, he needs to be honest about his scores and start practicing telling the truth now. 
    • I would just let it be. If he hurt his leg and it was just a casual round, then I do not see the issue really. Does he turn his scores in for handicap purposes? I play with guys that do this all of the time. It doesn't bother me. My thoughts are that they are out enjoying playing. Not all of my friends are sticklers for rules; they just like being out there on the course. In the case of him doing this in a match as part of the team, sometimes you just have to allow people to make their own decis
