Pay a Compliment - What Do You Like about Other Members?

Whenever you feel like it, pop in to this topic and say something you like about other members. Don't post an exhaustive list (hell, if I did that, I'd be typing for a few days straight), but post a few, say a few good things, and get out. You can always come back another day to say more.

If you're excluded by anyone, don't take it badly. Like I said, I'm going to exclude a few hundred people I appreciate in my first post… it's just not practical. I will specifically though call out my appreciation for all of our mods. I don't have the time to do it individually right now, but they're all very helpful and great contributors.

In no order, other than that I may have happened to see their posts recently, or seen a PM, or something…

@ncates00, who I appreciate won't back down on his opinions, but also isn't so completely stubborn that he won't possibly change them and avoids feeling personally attacked and lashing back out. He seems to understand that we can all have different opinions, fight pretty hard for them, and then just move on to something else, and that we probably agree on more than is what is said because TST isn't really a place where we have a lot of "I agree" type posts. People only generally post when they disagree.

@dennyjones, for welcoming new members like it's his job, and being so kind and nice and helpful.

@Vinsk, similar to @ncates00, for being able to argue and disagree and not take it personally, and to give it almost as good as he gets it sometimes. I'd play golf with him in a heartbeat (I just wouldn't stand forward and left of him), as I would with most everyone here.

@Asheville and @Rulesman have always been very much appreciated for their rules knowledge, and @Asheville (when he's not bitching about auto-merging posts) in particularly lately for his daily quizzes and questions. More of you should visit the Rules forum and check those out.


Now, your turn!

Obviously all the people that keep this place running so well....But a shout out to:

@boogielicious for always making his morning rounds and adding his witty humor when a break is needed.

@Double Mocha Man for his one liners that at times can cause me to spit out my coffee.

@colin007 for his relentless support of Tiger and as well as his quick humor and thick skin.

@Adam C for answering many club building questions and providing information I know nothing about.

@dennyjones Gotta give you a thumbs up as well for all your friendly welcomes and a smooth calmness I envy. 
 

@brocks @turtleback For such well presented and voluminous data in the Jack vs Tiger thread. They gave us a lot of excellent information.

Thank you Vinsk.  Did you see my mention of you in the Perfect Course thread?

I would like to compliment everyone on this forum for helping to keep me sane during my 9 months of elbow injury and during this Covid-19 time of spending waaaaay too much time at home.

I'd also like to thank everyone for putting up with me...

Thanks @Vinsk!! Still low-key chapped at you for bailing on golf last month...but I understand

And that brings me to @David in FL and @GolfLug for being two of the most fantastic and generous forumerists when I've visited Florida and Virginia

Lol...yeah...but at least it was due to injury and not ‘ well I gotta go to a baby shower..’ 

@David in FL is an awesome golf outing host. I owe him one for sure.

Wow, I could fill a couple of pages easily. Forgive me for being influenced by recency but here goes:

@billchao and @boogielicious for being solid all out citizens of TST. Both content and support is bar none. Thank you. 

@DaveP043, @David in FL, @ncates00@Golfing Dad , @ChetlovesMer , @bkuehn1952 and @DeadMan  for their thoughtful and prolific content.

Hey cool thread. 

To @iacas, @CarlSpackler , @Vinsk, and others who I'm sure I'm forgetting I'd like to say I appreciate that you all have disagreed with me and discussed it like an adult without being offended. 

To @Double Mocha Man, @dennyjones and @boogielicious for being of a similar mind and sense of humor. 

To @klineka, @Bonvivant and @CarlSpackler for agreeing to play a scramble with me which would have happened yesterday, but alas no... We will have to do it some time in the future... you too, @saevel25

Again, this is a cool thread. I look forward to adding more shout outs later.

I think it says a lot that so many of us could fill out multiple pages on this topic. Shows what a great group of golf enthusiasts  and well..just people we have here. So certainly a big thanks and appreciation to Erik, @iacas. Cheers my friend!

Thanks to @iacas for having a place to talk about all things golf. 

I "like" about everyone here, I've never met anyone here in real life but from the contributions made everyone for the most part seems like good people. I wonder how many people here have a mullet. 

Shout out to @boogielicious for helping keep politics out of here, so easy to do right now.

@Cantankerish for his avatar, @Vinsk, @David in FL for being part of the Florida crowd's daily insights.

And a special thanks to anyone who has posted in a thread I started. Checks in the mail.

@dennyjones, my fellow Michigander.  Setup our "Club" ... Michigan Golf, gives we Mitten Dwellers a heads up when a good golf deal is available, and generally helps keep the chatter going.

@Asheville for helping us learn and understand the Rules a bit better.

And of course @GolfLug for mentioning me! Back at you.

Man, it's tough to hit everyone up individually, this site has been an important part of my golfing life for nearly 15 years (minus a short hiatus a few years back). 

So just to name a few folks who I appreciate their content @David in FL, @Vinsk, @boogielicious, @billchao, @nevets88, @Pretzel, @DeadMan, and of course @iacas. I'm sure I left a few off and I am sorry for that.

I'm not hardly that old!   (jk).    I didn't know this site existed or wasn't really interested in improving my golf game before I joined.    I now spend way too much time on here but wth, I've got the time now.  

This site is fantastic.   @iacas, @boogielicious, @billchao and the other mods keep everyone in line and for that I'm extremely grateful.   I enjoy a good argument...not really .. but they allow for educated discussions w/o a lot of nasty talk.   It's easy sitting behind a computer to let your emotions go unchecked and say something you wouldn't say to a person you just met.   Thanks to you guys.

I always look forward to seeing posts from @DaveP043, his golf education shows in his posts.   I especially pay attention when @mvmac posts.  His post posts are very educational and enlightening.   Not to say that Erik's aren't (because they are) but Mike doesn't show up everyday like Erik.   I pay attention when @billchao talks, I believe we could be friends just like @Vinsk.     There are so many people that contribute to this forum to make it what it is, I'd be here all day listing the people that post worthwhile stuff even if it's just the numbers game.  

I really get excited to see fellow "Mitten" members post.   @bkuehn1952, @tlazzol, @criley4way and others.   

To all of the long term members, my heart felt "Thanks" to you.

Geez, how can I forget @Golfingdad! One of my best TST friends. Haven't seen much from him lately. Where are you man?

First, @iacas who changed my golf game completely. From my swing thread, playing a round together as part of a TST outing, LSW, Evolvr, giving me my first in person lesson ever at his facility in Erie, reading and rereading the topics in the Swing Thoughts section, etc, etc the list goes on and on. I can say without a doubt I am a significantly better golfer today than I was prior to finding TST and meeting Erik.

Next comes the numerous members I have met in person and golfed with or just had a drink with. I think this is everyone, sorry if I left anyone out! @saevel25 @DaveP043 @georgep @Carl3 @vasaribm

I also really enjoy reading about how other players work on their games, and I especially like to hear the thoughts of lower handicap players and see how my game stacks up to some of them. Guys like @NM Golf @mvmac @Double Mocha Man @Pretzel @phillyk @coachjimsc are some of the first that come to mind.

I'm sure I'll be adding to this thread in the future, there are a ton of great members on here.

One thing I really like about this group and this forum is the "Numbers Thread". I'm not sure why but I always click when somebody posts a new number.

So, special thanks to:

@dennyjones, @snapfade, @boogielicious, @commishbob, @dagolfer18, @iacas, @KEEPITSIMPLE, @NM Golf, @Vinsk, @JGus, @RoberX, and @IowaGreg for continually keeping the numbers thread going. 

…. Even if @dennyjones sometimes posts way too many battleships.

    • How have you been? I was wondering what happened to you since I have not seen you around lately. Yes, my current club is only 5 mins away and Paako is exactly 30 mins door to door. It’s not too bad since the drive is easy. I was able to get the tee time I want all the way to July! No need to stress or scramble to get a time. It is alot more expensive to play there but they only have 50 members v. hundreds at other clubs. I am going to enjoy it as much as possible. I am still a member at my club for this month, so I will play there during the week and head over to Paako for the weekends. So far, we really like it there and I am eyeing a home in the community....we will see. I have only played 4 complete rounds since starting golf in May and I have been doing pretty well. I should be able to maintain my hcp eventhough Paako is alot tougher (72.9/141) v (69.5/129). I scored 78 twice already! Woohoo! I have not bought any new clubs since the m5 tour but am eyeing a SIM now. I cannot resist if it somehow gives me extra 10 yards!  I am sure you will reach your goals in no time once you golf more! I probably need to work on my putting too as I am giving strokes away too easily... Take care!
    • Hi Ace: I hope you are doing well. Sorry to hear you resigned from your current club.....I know it was so convenient for you as you could get there using your golf cart....I hope you didn't pay an initiation and losing the cost of that initiation. In my 52 years of playing golf....I've never heard of a course being run like a gong show...the GM and head pro seem so INCOMPETENT....and the culture doesn't seem great....a culture that doesn't seem friendly. Glad you joined Paako....the best course in NM...but the 1 hr return drive may eventually get to you....considering you like to play daily.....I assume this might be a short term fix until you and your husband decide what other/closer course you might want to join. It's shocking that metro Albuquerque with nearly 900,000 residents doesn't have more club choices to join. Take care. You still sporting your 5.5 cap?.....I assume you got back your 440 M3/M5?...you planning on buying any new clubs this year?....I don't have any plans for new equip...still deciding if a new/used Hungtintion Beach putter remains in the bag. My ball striking has improved in my last 4 rds...but still giving away 4-5 stupid strokes per rd...my cap is at 8.0....goal is to be around 6.8 - 7.5 by late July/Aug.
    • The lesson was bit "meh", could of been partly because I had really bad headache. It's been actually so bad that I've taken few days off course completely and had a visit to a doctor. Instructor basically told me three things: 1. My upper back and chest are extremely tight, have so called "facet lock" if that's the right term in English 2. I slide a lot towards target during my downswing, making it hard to hit driver 3. I should check the lie angles of my clubs, 1 degree or so upright could help. For number 2 he gave me a drill where you set yourself to impact position and start the backswing from there. I pointed out this could work as a trigger move for me, he agreed. Will work on this surely, but I feel now it's not the time. I asked him few times about my wrist condition at the top of backswing, but he didn't feel that's a problem which made be bit disappointed because I feel it clearly is after watching the day 4 drill. Taking the wrist action as my number one priority to fix, because I feel there's many things that arched position at the top is preventing me from doing. Been working on it bit inside and today got to hit some balls. In order to have a chance to get that cupped wrist position at the top, I felt like my backswing direction had to change, the plane looks completely different now. I checked the wrist position multiple times before swinging, but I couldn't hold it at the top. However now it's atleast flat instead of arched, but I guess this needs much more work: Imgur Post with 1 views. Left wrist looks better to my eye at impact, but could it be I'm rolling my wrists over more or something? Thanks in advance!
    • A senior player I know likes to buy clubs from Callaway Pre-Own. He said they offer great prices/condition, trade-in value and returns if you don’t like the clubs. He is constantly swapping club through the program.
