@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. 🤣

This compliment goes out to @iacas and @Bonvivant.

I really enjoyed the back and forth discussion you two had in this thread: 

 

I think @Bonvivant was arguing uphill, but it was a great discussion. Nice job, you two. 

It's great when folks can have a discussion without getting pissy. ... Seems to be a dying art these days.

Thanks @ChetlovesMer. I've just got wonky opinions though. Things like walking only unless medically unable, enforcement of 3.5 hour pace, etc. etc. I know that I am in the minority on a lot of things and know that there are plenty of issues with my opinions, so I try to not get mad about it ever.

I guess I should add a compliment myself. To @iacas for always making me think about things, and pushing back. Cheers!

Those aren't the same kind of opinions as "marketing is irrelevant" or whatever some of your sub-opinions were in the ball debate. 🙂

I'm just glad you take it as banter or keep in mind that we're disagreeing about f***ing GOLF, not something that actually matters. Plus, arguing can be FUN. 😄

I grew up with a guy that would argue with a telephone phone and win.   With my wife, I've learned to just roll my eyes.   She said it helps to straighten my back.   I must have the straightest back of anybody I know!   :-D

I wasn't saying it was irrelevant, just responding to the comment that "every commercial has a pro" (or multiple), when I've seen plenty that just have some guy instead of a big name.

I've gotten much better about it in my year or so here. And I definitely agree that arguing can be fun. That's how we form, shape, and change opinions over time. If everyone sat around in echo-chambers then they wouldn't be doing themselves any good.

I'd like to give a shout out to @boogielicious and @ncates00 for providing feedback in my swing thread to try and help me improve.

Also, shoutout to @Antneye for having great taste in hockey teams.

And one last shoutout to @Slice of Life, @ChetlovesMer, and @saevel25 who are super cool folks who I'm glad I got to meet in person and become friends with at the August outing.

And you've seen plenty with the big names in them, too. C'mon.

You're wrong, and let me tell you in obnoxious multi-quoting fashion why… 😉

    • The last round I played we played from one up tee boxes, so like 5,500 yds, relative to par I was about 6-8 shots better than I typically am, but relative to differential it was 3 strokes better than my handicap at the time. But to be fair I also played a nearly mistake free round of golf and holed multiple 10-15 footers which isn't normal for me.
    • For the best chance at a GIR, I would have to say a 6i, maybe a 5i.
    • 4 hybrid.     I’ve said it before, but it’s worth repeating.  This is what I consider the best way to determine which tees are appropriate when looking at a new course.  Much better than simply looking at overall yardage.  If the tees I’m playing are likely to require more than that on 2 or more holes, I’m probably playing the wrong tees.  For me, that means more than 2 holes over about 415 yards.
    • I have 44 rounds in my stats app, plus I played another ~5 or so of scrambles/alt shot, etc so I'm going to say right around 50, which is definitely an all time high for me. Starting with the most recent (excluding duplicates, * means new courses for me this year) St. Albans GC Turnberry Golf Course Raccoon International Golf Club Westchester Golf Course* New Albany Links Virtues Golf Club* Foxfire Golf Club* Pinnacle Country Club* Deer Ridge Golf Club* Links at Echo Springs Links at Firestone Farms GC* Cumberland Trail Golf Club* Prairie View Golf Club Colonial Golfers Club* Mid South Club Tobacco Road Golf Club* Talamore Golf Course Blacklick Woods Golf Course Moundbuilders Country Club* Darby Creek Golf Course Golf Club of Dublin* Kyber Run Golf Course Tanglewood Golf Course Clover Valley Golf Club Table Rock Golf Club Royal American Golf Links Nearly half of the courses were new to me this year which I didn't realize until making this list. Also kinda funny to see the contrast in quality of courses on this list, I played a couple rounds on $100+ per round courses and a couple rounds on $20-25 courses.
    • Depending on the situation, greater than 150, I'll lay up to use a wedge.
