BTW, @NatalieB is a +0.6 now

@iacas, While it doesn’t change the outcome, you went above and beyond as a dad and you can be proud of that. A lot of parents would’ve been upset, but I doubt would’ve gone to the lengths you did to

The Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association state golf finals will take place this week, but two of Pennsylvania’s top young players will be left out — through no fault of their own. As detailed extensively by GoErie.com...

@iacas, While it doesn’t change the outcome, you went above and beyond as a dad and you can be proud of that. A lot of parents would’ve been upset, but I doubt would’ve gone to the lengths you did to muster support for the cause. Just very publication of this scathing article shows that a lot of folks in the golf community supported Natalie & Zoey. It’s a shame the folks who had the ability to make it right, didn’t.

Thank you for saying that.

The hits just keep on coming.

District 10 Girls Golf All-Stars, selected by the Erie Times-News staff, are revealed along with region all-stars, as determined by the region results

Natalie is on the second team, despite being the second or, at worst, third best golfer in the region after the Swan girls, because they only look at the District X tournament - the one in which Natalie and Zoey were not allowed to play the second round - in figuring out the All Star teams.

The text says "and decisions by the Erie Times-News staff," but I don't think they made any decisions, really, because had they factored in Natalie's year-long scoring average of basically even par (I think she was two over par for the year, with multiple rounds below or at par that almost completely offset a few over-par rounds), they'd have not put her on the second team.

She played better than she had the previous year, and beat all of the same people in 2020 as she had all of 2019, and was third on the first team.

Further pointing to the stupidity here: she's region golfer of the year for Region 3, and the note there says: "The all-region teams and golfers of the year are based on stroke averages from region play."

People are stupid. I know it’s gotta be crazy frustrating as dad of a talented daughter to see this happen, but Natalie obviously has a bright golf future and while this will probably make some school negotiations more cumbersome than they should, hopefully this will be a small ripple in the big scheme of life.

    • My putter head cover never leaves the big pocket on the side of my bag. My driver and 3w head cover go in the cart basket upon first use and stay there. Obsessing about head covers might mean someone spent too much on their clubs. The guys with iron covers crack me up. I picture them sleeping Naked in bed with their clubs every night. If you look at a “What’s in my bag” for a touring pro, most of their clubs look like well-used implements, beat to hell. oh, someone mentioned pace of play. Golfers fiddling with their head covers can get annoying. 
    • My bag has a separate slot for the putter and the putter sits below the shafts of the other clubs in the bag.  I take the cover off before the round and leave it in a bag pocket. I grab my driver or woods and while approaching my shot I pull the head cover off and drop it on the ground near my stance.  After the shot I put my head cover back on while approaching my cart.  I usually am using a trolley but I do this with a trolley or a cart.  It's a patterned habit, I don't forget my head cover. Perhaps on the OCD side of things, but this is driven by pace of play.  There are a bunch of little things one can do to improve pace of play and this  one, albeit a small one.
    • 1. Lose weight (lost 20 lbs since 2021 started already) 2. Walk the course more 3. Consistently shoot below 100 4. Score in the low 90s or better at least once this year.  5. Continue to bring my handicap down. (Hopefully into the teens this year).  6. Spend less money on golf balls (Avoid water and the woods). 
    • DAY 47  January 19  Started the session working with the Super Speed Sticks and measuring my swing speed for the Challenge. Then spent 2 1/2 hours on the range working on my swing -- while I was doing drills, I was working to reduce my tension level at set up and throughout the swing.  Making a lot of progress... I feel like my swing comes out, when I am more relaxed.  
    • Day 18 - Working on my weight shift, full swings with my 7.
