275 views and no comment. I guess it is because it is winter here and the holiday season?

hEY @Nave ! Sorry for not responding. I am in West Fort Worth. I am trying to heal from shoulder/knee injuries (AGAIN!) so I haven't been to the range or course for over a month. Have a feeling it will be later this month, weather permitting. Let's keep it going! Best, -Marv

Happy New Year!

The Tribute Golf Club is ending it's existing Player's Club membership now that Old American and The Tribute are run by the same management company.  They are now offering two different levels of membership (full and limited) to both clubs and a more expensive Player's Club membership.  Not sure what I am going to do for 2020.  Both courses are super convenient and practice facilities are pretty darn good.

I'm in your boat as well.  I wish Frisco Lakes had a package close to that but I'm on the lookout for something.

Since you wrote that post, old bones are doing much better. Started phys therapy on knee last week and that's doing great! Have gone to the range twice and am adjusting. So, all in all, very blessed to be looking forward to warmer weather and GOLF! Hope you and yours are well and HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL DFW GOLFERS!  Best, -Marv

Recently I started taking lessons at the Highlands Performance GC. Yesterday was my first lesson of the year and it snowed. For that one occasion, the beauty of the snow covered range made the lesson even more enjoyable (although on a mat and under the radiator).

After I complete my lessons in February, I will be looking to either join a country club or use the Golf Now app to find last minute deals and after I familiarize myself with a few CC then choose one that I like (can afford) later in the year. 

Happy 2020!

Hello, is anyone still active in this thread? I just found it.

 

Hey! Not really. We use the main forum for any events or local group outings. This one is used to know who is in the same area.

    • You are getting close to my area.  Cascades, Calderone and Grande are all nice courses.  I am not sure the Grande allows walking.  I think their rates include the cart but maybe you can walk and just pay for the cart.  Cascades is a good walking course.  Calderone is a bit more of a chore with some distance between tee and next green.
    • Thanks for posting this. I immediately thought of Jon Rahm who has a short backswing, but seems to get his hands moving fast very early. In trying to get into a good impact position with hips and shoulders rotated without putting a bunch of stress on my lead knee, I have opened my stance. This has limited my backswing, which was a concern I had in being able to create clubhead speed.  I am thinking I can open my stance a bit and still get decent clubhead velocity. 
    • As good as that advice is, perhaps someone should have told him "Don't go from in play into the woods."  I thought the first play from the palmettos was pretty good, he had only one real option for an unplayable lie, and that was to go back to the fairway bunker.  I don't think he had a reasonable 2 clublength drop, and a drop in the bunker is likely to leave a partially plugged lie.  But for his next shot, from the back edge of the bunker, I thought perhaps he would have been better off playing sideways rather than towards the flag.   Given the location in the bunker, I didn't see any way to get it out and hit the green on the line he chose, it had to come out low and hot.  Of course, I've never understood the level of skills these guys have, maybe it was a good choice, and poor execution. I definitely admired his responses at the time, and in the interview afterward.
    • I agree with you But, I’m not sure he was able (low percentage) to hit the green from the woods or back of the bunker...he’s not the best chipper / pitcher and those were some bad spots on fast greens with runoffs 
    • Finally had a good round today, hitting the ball pretty well while playing with the new swing. I could have confidence today to strike the ball with 80% of full swing after struggling between old swing and new swing for like two months.
