Well we’re looking at playing in Ohio and we tend to tag people who live closer geographically to the course.

I think you live closer to my house than you do eastern Ohio 🤷🏻

I do - but I did go to the meetup last year which was in western NY & PA so I've already proven I'm quite crazy enough to drive a fair amount of distance for a golf meetup, haha

I'm calling to get three tee times in a few minutes. So, we'll cap this at 12 people.

@Divot Master, are you in? @DrizZzY? @RFKFREAK, it's 2:45 from Erie…

I'm getting 1:30 to 1:50. This is a slightly reduced rate time.

@RFKFREAK, if you'd like, @boogielicious and @billchao are around for a few days. You could stay overnight and do a little instruction the next day if you wanted.

Keep copying/appending to the master list, so the latest post(s) always have the most up-to-date listings.

Update: 1:30, 1:40, 1:50 are booked.

I won't mention my education. But I think you know my excuse.

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

We're at eight Definites and three Likelys. Toward the end of May, if there are spots open, we'll allow guests of members. So if you're listed above start thinking about that.

Small update to open up the last three spots. If you're one of the three "likely" people, please try to commit to "Definite" by the end of the day (midnight) this Sunday, May 23. If you're still "likely" after that, you can be supplanted by another "definite" if they want to join us.

The tee times are 1:30 to 1:50pm. Deer Ridge GC in Ohio.

  1. @iacas - Definite
  2. @billchao - Definite
  3. @boogielicious - Definite
  4. @Slim_Pivot - Definite
  5. @Hardspoon - Definite
  6. @saevel25 - Definite
  7. @Carl3 - Definite
  8. @ChetlovesMer - Definitely Definite 
  9. @Divot Master - Definite
  10. pending @Braivo
  11. pending @BradSomrak
  12. pending @RFKFREAK
  1. @Braivo Likely, if in Ohio or Western PA
  2. @BradSomrak - Likely
  3. @RFKFREAK - Likely (don't make it too far a drive, please! 😂)

So, @Braivo, @BradSomrak, and @RFKFREAK… please try to commit here soon. Worst case, stay "likely" and just hope nobody takes your spot before you can commit, but if you would like to play, switching to "definite" by Sunday gets you in guaranteed.

Oh, hadn't thought about that.  I like that idea - especially with the course being 3 hours away from Erie.

Works been crazy and will be the next few days so let me see where I'm at but I'll definitely let you know by Sunday.

    • Fortunately my wife doesn't care how much I golf. We are both in our mid 30s.  She doesn't play but loves tagging along and driving the cart.  Shes there to drink a few cocktails, look for balls in the woods with a retriever and make fun of my game.  We even went on a cruise to Bermuda this summer and let me play at Port Royal while she tagged along as well.    Im off weekends and she works 95% of weekends so those are wide open for me
    • Keep swinging in a simulator in the winter to stay consistent. That's a big if being I plow snow for the town and can be called into work at any second My last round last week outside, back 9 hit 5 of 9 GIR.   Amazing how much smoother a swing is when you're constantly playing.   Im still a 18ish handicap, short game betrays me from time to time.  Wish there was a better way in winter to improve the short game.  I have an indoor putting mat and chipping net with soft balls, works good for ball striking I guess
    • Right now I have a set of One Length Cobra F8s.   I really thought about getting the new Cobra LTDx One Lengths.   The PW of the F8 is 44*.   However the LTDx is 41.5*.   The 5i of the F8 is 22.5*.  The LTDx is 20.5*.    My question is, there will be a bigger gap between a new PW and my standard length 49* AW (yea a 44 to 49 is a solid gap as well but its pretty well gapped yardage wise).   And my current 4h will basically be the same loft as a new 5i.   Will it be a waste of time getting new irons without buying a complete new set of wedges.  Or is technology so far advanced in the shafts that the lofts don't mean as much comparing new and old irons.    
    • ya he is almost there lol On a more serious note really the French have impressed me.  Just an overall powerhouse.
    • I’ve had success moving my left hand grip more into the fingers and significantly weakening my right hand.  I’ve focused a lot on my pivot the past few months but still have a ways to go. Roughly, I’ve tried to stop pushing off early through my trail toes and extending through my trail side low back. Instead I’ve tried to stay in my trail heel longer, activate trail side external oblique, and externally rotate through trail hip from the top. Putting this together with a shallow arm swing has been difficult. I’m searching for speed (currently ~107), and struggle most with driver. Any comments or observations are welcome!
