I played on Labor Day with my son and it was a nightmare!

Went out at 10 and watching the group in front, I knew it was gonna be a long day.  Young macho dudes all hitting from the blues... I'm sure you have all seen this scene...

3 duffs that barley make it to the red tees.  Not just the first hole, EVERY hole!  This along with non ready golf turned 9 holes into 3 1/2 hrs.

My son and I play best ball so we move along pretty good but nobody seems to want to let us through.  I guess they see a kid and figure that he is gonna take 10 shots to get it to the green.  Well the 4 dudes in front of us were the ones taking 4-8 shots to get to the green. Ahhhhhh!

We will usually just drive past you to the next hole if you wont let us play through... get some evil eyes from some and I wave and say thanks for letting us through.

So I told my son we might have to play our own ball as it looks to be a slow day or he can drop by me and do BB himself as I wanted to keep my score.

I start par, par, par and finish par, bird, par!  The middle 3 well not as good... bogie, double, bogie.  This partly to do with them slowing down to a crawl in the middle.  I had to call the ranger over to speed them up.

This didn't really help so after 9 holes and 3 1/2 hours of time we decided to just go to the car and leave... couldn't imaging being out golfing for 7 hours!

I wish everyone would hit from the correct Tees and play Ready Golf!

My son and I went shooting then had “high tea” with my wife and daughter that day. Pretty relaxing day. We played golf the day after with no crowds but tons of divots in the fairways possibly from many practice swings made by frustrated golfers the day before? 🤪

I played on Labor Day with my buddy Ken. We play head to head and talk a ton of shit. Well I shot 38 on the front to his 43. I missed easy and short par putts on 1 and 6 as well as a 3 putt on 8. Was that close to a -1 35 on front. Only problem is we teed off at 1pm and it was a crazy hot day. The 12 pack we drank caught up with me by the turn. By 17 we drove through the sprinklers on purpose. My game went downhill as the back side wore on. Easy par at 10 followed by an OB on 11 from 70 yards where I completely flew the green with a sand wedge. Then OB off the tee at 12. Limped in with a 46 on back and didn’t really care. Was just happy not to fall over from the heat.

    • I am incline to believe that fake balls are best for practicing swing mechanics. That one should not rely on the flight of these plastic/foam balls for swing results. Especially when used with longer swings.  I have a box of Taylor Made foam balls I sometimes use. They are quite safe to use indoors. Outdoors  they work ok, as long as there is no wind.  However, my favorite practice "fake" balls are those "Birdie Balls". The ones that look like a short piece of pvc pipe. (they are NOT made out of pvc). They seem to mimic ball flights better than the plastic/foam balls, while still being extremely range limited. I also believe these birdie balls are more suited for outdoor use. Obviously a draw back is you can't putt with them. 
    • They taste good, but are way too greasy, to the point of sogginess.  I’ve always said that McDonald’s is the gold standard in fries. Looks like I’m not the only one…
    • I just saw the Golf Channel's tribute to "Gene the Machine". I was truly fortunate enough to watch him play Billy Casper in an 18 hole Monday playoff at the 1970 Masters. I was a sophomore in college and our biology professor gave a friend and me his tickets (and permission to cut his class). It was my first time to actually see an actual tournament round having only attended practice rounds while in high school. There wasn't much drama as Casper won 69 to 74. There weren't many patrons in attendance and it was a very intimate setting to watch two great players up close and personal. I don't remember much about how they played except that Casper hit a screaming hook into the trees on number 2. As a hooker myself I received some solace in seeing a touring pro do that and still make par. Also, it was the last 18 hole playoff in Masters history. The 1979 Masters ending in a tie was decided by a sudden death playoff won on #11 (the second playoff hole) by Fuzzy Zoeller over Ed Sneed and Tom Watson. Because of that experience I've always been fond of both Littler and Casper.
    • McVay was going against Belicheck. He should’ve known that before the game and accepted he’d have to make rapid adjustments and not just ‘stick to a game plan.’ Yeah....sounds like coaching played a huge role in that loss.
