@iacas did not like that as the tires were on the grass instead of asphalt.

BTW, appreciate you warning everyone about woes of turning 50... nose hair explosion and all. Lol.! Right around the corner for me so I got that to look forward to... 😆

Don't forget ear hair. Maybe @ChetlovesMer doesn't have that problem?

Ugh, nope. I have that problem too. Turning 50 was like a cruel trick of nature. Nose hair, Ear hair, even hair growing on my nose. Not to mention can't read without reading glasses. That was another curve ball.

I enjoyed the company of @Bonvivant as my cart mate on Sunday at Whispering Woods. His knowledge of golf history, sunny disposition, and positive attitude in the face of adversity was uplifting. 

He also had the chore of keeping me from breaking etiquette with where I happened to park the cart.  On one hole I made a last minute move to steer the cart so that the windshield blocked the near-gale force winds and sideways rain. @iacas did not like that as the tires were on the grass instead of asphalt.

It was my pleasure Carl. There are far too many people with a sullen attitude, especially when on the course and I was happy to share a cart with someone that could smile, even after a poor shot, gale force winds, or torrential downpour.

Nose hair helps stop Rona.

Just stay on the paths near greens and tees and the whole hole on par threes.

Then the super won’t be mad. 😡

At my age, I can grow my nose hair to look like that in about an hour... maybe 2 tops. 

I'd like to thank @CarlSpackler for finding a silver lining in growing older.

Huh? Can you repeat that?

Sorry. I'm letting my ear hair grow out too. 🤣

    • I have a TheraGun knockoff; KRAFT. Have had it for two years now. It is quiet (60dba); has three speeds 1800, 2100, 2400 - I usually use 1800 with the ball attachment. Once a day minimum I use it all over - well what I can reach - soles of my feet, calf muscles, front and back of upper legs, glutes, upper back - particularly the area between neck and shoulder and about 6 inches down. I will also take it to the course and use on the upper back - as that tends to tighten up during the round.
    • It’s kind of a weird situation, though, because the guy improved to the point that he wouldn’t even qualify for the flight he’s already in. I’m assuming the competition is gross scoring within the flight.
    • 79 today for a differential of 5.8. Ball striking with the irons was better but my wedges and putting were awful. Couldn't control the distance or direction at all with how bad I was striking it for some reason. SG (compared to scratch) Driving: 2.49 Approach (>100 yds): 0.19 Short game (<100 yds): -2.66 Putting: -2.40 I also track the "Tiger Five," which is a better way of quantifying all the silly mistakes I make during my rounds. These were: Bogeys on par 5s: 0 Double bogeys: 0 Three putts: 4 Bogeys with 9-iron or less: 2 Blown easy saves (which I quantify as any nGIR that isn't in a bunker/deep rough or terribly short sided): 3
    • Very recently a thread was started here about PingEye2 iron sets and subject was some folk (experienced players) were seeking out these clubs to play AGAIN.  I have played Eye2 irons for many years, now on my second set as the first set was stolen.  As old as this design is, people have always got good memories and respect for these clubs.  and you can find sets for $100 or less ALL DAY LONG.  Buy a set, re-grip, and he's set up - to see if he likes the game.  With the difference from buying sets suggested, you have $$ for that driver and putter (these clubs will be more per each than a couple sets of Eye2s). and a bag. Be sure to put new 'velvet' grips on the properly fit clubs (according to the Ping site) and your son will have the best starter set he could find - and he may just play them for years to come.  You know, you're Ping.  PS - I had been planning on a new set of irons just because but when I tuck one up close from 100 or 150 yards, I forget about it.  I am shopping putters tho.    
    • Seconding this. Pretty much any OEM's game improvement or super game improvement from a couple model years ago will give him the performance and forgiveness he needs for a solid price. Just make sure you do your research on the ebay seller. I've had good success with it, but if you are more skeptical, there are plenty of second-hand retailers online.
