March Madness is canceled, the NBA is shut down, the Masters is postponed, and my Aunt Marge’s senior bowling has even thrown in the towel. Now restaurants and bars are closed, and our 40-handicap gov

This is where you mischaracterize the rest of us David. We are not ‘terrified’, ‘paranoid’ or ‘hoarding’. We are taking the necessary precautions as recommended by our local, state and a federal autho

I had to go out and run some "essential" errands the other day, and I took a detour to have a look at something. Turns out that the local driving range closest to me seems to be open for business! The gates were open, and that's all you need to see. It's a "self-service"operation. Slide your card through the machine and get a small bucket of 45-50 balls. Not bad! 

Now all we need it to do is stop snowing around here! Ridiculous!

1. No, the Coronavirus has not affected me...yet. There are a few cases two counties away from me, though, but I’m not worried yet.

2. Heck no. Unless I have it, and I really feel bad, I will be out there on the course, either playing or practicing.

I’m going to change my answer for the second question, because I have still not been affected by the virus yet. However, I have not been anywhere except my house, barring an occasional run around the neighborhood, in about two weeks. Which means I haven’t been to the golf course, hitting a real ball off real turf, in several days. Which means my golf game is coming apart. The other day, I hit some balls off a mat into my net, probably 40 shots or so. There were only a few that I could call at least okay. Several near-shanks. I’m going to the course later today to get an accurate evaluation of where my game is. I’m playing with my teammates next Friday, so I guess I’d better get to work.

    • I've always been curious about this, especially since I've lost a few head covers and always see a few sprinkled on the course.
    • I'll do my best to get it done and have some fun along the way. I don't have any particular courses in mind. But whenever I travel I try to get to a course nearby, if the trip isn't dedicated just for golf. If you have any suggestions of your favorites, feel free to let me know. Thanks for the response.
    • Day 17 (of last 18, 4 in a row) - Did some putting with the smart ball.  Also felt like my weight was ending on my right side, so I worked to feel like my weight finished on my left.  Tried stepping down on my left heal to start the forward stroke.  Seemed to feel pretty good.
    • Ok. So here's  the info from the last three sessions.... just so everyone knows when I'm hitting well, most of my clubs go around tour average , when I'm hitting  super good maybe ten yards  farther for my irons.. So I'm just trying to lock in the draw. My natural swing is a fade. First session, slight  head wind. Hitting some pretty decent draws. Second session, slight tail wind, but mostly right to left, huge draws. Today it was so still you could probably hear a ball landing off a 500 yard tee shot, couldn't hardly curve the ball.  What really gets me is when I over exaggerated the in to out action on my swing a hardly got any curve. But what was strangest was I had a lot of these shots that started right and even started to curve back left but then they stopped  just started flying straight  right after appearing to begin curving back. So they ending up being more of a push. What was more weird  was when they reached the Apex of their flight and started to fall they drifted from left to right. But there was zero wind and they began curving from right to left before  they stalled... it happened over and over. Some of the strangest ball flights I've ever seen. What's going on?      
    • 73 (+2) today in breezy and cool conditions.  Had a few bad swings but overall pretty happy with how I played.  Hit 14 greens...made a couple birdies but left a couple out there.   Encouraged that the SuperSpeed work I've done has been positive.  Can tell the swing faster but I don't feel out of control.  Only a couple bad drives but neither cost me very much...
