@BradSomrak are you still wanting to play? Looks like I need to give up my spot. It is my birthday and it seems my family in Ohio want to throw a proper party for me.

I was hoping the tee times were in the AM.

The tee times were known on May 18.

@BradSomrak made other plans when the spots were filled.

We have one open spot guys.

Sorry all - I am a no go next weekend. A bathroom/bedroom renovation running behind and I’m in charge of the kid on Sunday. 
 

I hope everyone hits them straight.

You explained post 52 to them, right? I guess I’ll be drinking your birthday beer then.

Seriously though, have a good time with your family.

If we don't get another committed player by say 8 pm tonight, I will still play. Sorry to cause trouble, but I knew Mr. somrack was waiting and thought I would ask.

I don't know if that's necessary, especially as you're coming from Buffalo. But if you want to play, the spot is open.

My father passed away Friday, after a four year battle with Alzheimer's dementia.  For a long time, it was an evenly matched struggle between an insidious disease and a strong, elegant man. Unfortunately, the final inning turned into a rout, as his body functions shut down one by one.  We transitioned to Hospice care, and the end came peacefully in his sleep.  My efforts turn now to my mother, also a dementia sufferer, as she tries to come to terms with the loss of her companion of 67 years.

Golf has not been on my mind these past few weeks.  I leave in a few minutes for my first practice round in over a month.  I will be accompanied by my usual posse; Clank, Shank, Foozle, Flip, and Chili-dip.  Most of them also plan to travel with me this Sunday to central Ohio.  Yes, I will be there.

You are all encouraged to smile and laugh at the antics of my pals, and my very rusty golf game.  I come not to break par, but for the camaraderie that flows freely at every TST get together.

See you soon.

Sorry for your loss, Marshall.

I'm so sorry to hear.

My condolences to you and your loved ones.

@Divot Master Sorry for your loss. Assuming that is the elegant man standing beside you on the Swilcan Bridge at the Old Course? Good times. Looking forward to playing with you.

@iacas What tees do you think we will play? Wanting to apply some Lowest Score Wins strategies. Although it will all be thrown out the window since I believe this course has some major elevation changes and everything appears flat with Google Maps. 😄

I can't friggin wait. It looks like I'm in a great group. 

@Divot Master Really sorry to hear about what happened. I am glad that you will be hanging out with us. Nothing like seeing me spray a driver all over the state of Ohio to cheer you up though.

Sorry to hear Marshall. We’ve been through this and it’s very tough.

Yes, that is him.  We were across the pond for a wedding, and this was my 49th birthday present from him.  35 mph wind and spitting rain, cleared up just in time for me to see my tee shot on 17 bounce off the wall of the hotel.  Never to be forgotten.

Thanks to everyone for their kind words.  Mom and I are both holding up well.

And now lets all get back to the pre-round trash talk.

    • Yet another question about the technology for filming a swing. I read Erik's updated "Filming your Swing" blog post as part of researching my next phone purchase. My current phone, which is on its last legs, was able to record video up to 1080p at up to 120 fps (Pixel 3XL).  However, that camera isn't great at the moment (various reasons unrelated to its specifications) and I'm going to get a new device soon, too.  Its likely successor for me is only able to do 30fps at 1080p, so that won't work for filming a golf swing.  It can do 720p @ 480 fps though (device I'm likely to get is a Galaxy A42).  Will that work for this?  I realize the post says "at least 720p video," but I don't know if I should shoot for better than that (such as if it is expected to be outdated soon).  It also seems odd to me that a camera could do only 30fps at 1080p but 480 fps at 720p, but I know almost nothing about these things. I am also debating getting a separate camera for golf swings if this won't work;  my prior separate-camera is a Canon PowerShot ELPH 110.  I believe it tops out at 720p / 30 fps;  if there's a reasonably priced camera that works for my golf swing filming, I'd be happy to get that and not sweat the camera on the phone. Other than filming my golf swing, my phone is pretty much a communication device and podcast player, so I'm not going higher end except if doing so is the most effective way to get a good camera for my golf swing. (Apologies if this should have been a separate thread, but I figured it was on-topic here and I didn't think there was another forum than Member Swings where this would be an appropriate top-level post)
    • Day 127: Played 18 this morning. Tried to simplify the mechanics of my priority piece (which is two things) into a feel but didn’t work great, so just settled on on of them after a few holes. Played okay except for a dumb triple bogey on #12.
    • I got my first round in. I haven't used Game Golf in so long, I got out of the habit of tagging. Missed a few shots on the course, though it was pretty easy to edit in on my computer. Like @iacas, I also felt the editor was just okay. I didn't have an issue with the map size, but I found scrolling up and down a lot a bit tedious. I had to mess around with adding shots and penalties, though, so I had to spend more time editing off the map. The penalty functions weren't very intuitive. They seem to add an additional "dead shot" (does not appear to track the distance for your stats) for counting purposes as well as a penalty stroke. The lost ball one makes sense, as it gives you a marker with an X on it so you can mark off where you hit the ball that was lost, then your next shot is from where you played your last stroke to where you play your next one. But the drop ball function seems to work the exact same way, which doesn't make sense. If I hit into a penalty area I'm likely not taking S&D, so in order to make it work score-wise, I ended up just deleting the original tracked shot. I don't know if I'm doing that correctly. I didn't like tagging on my belt the way I used Game Golf. As Erik mentioned, the vibration is subtle and it doesn't beep. I often didn't know if it registered. Also the Game Golf unit was angled so you can tag the club hanging down at your side naturally. Tagging the Shot Scope requires bringing the club perpendicular to the ground. It's awkward and I almost hit a playing partner today while tagging a putt because he was walking past me and didn't expect me to bring the club up like that. Next time I'm going to try wearing the unit on my left like I do my Garmin and tagging by bringing the unit to the club. I might even stop using the Garmin if the GPS on the H4 is good enough. Didn't get a chance to compare today because I forgot my Garmin. I didn't know there was a pin marker function. I'm going to have to try that next time. So far I like the data it presents. It seems more detailed than Game Golf. I'll form a more complete opinion of it as I play more rounds.
    • I realize this got no traction initially. But for anyone interested, SwingLogic will be dropping this for pre-orders early in the week. No idea what the timeline is for delivery though. I plan to give it a shot. If it turns out to be comparable to the Mevo or R10, I'd imagine it'll do really well. 
    • Day 582: Worked a bit on another piece of having my upper center move toward the target in transition. I call it the Leaning Tower of Pisa feel. It is more for the irons. For driver, it doesn’t need to be as pronounced. Videos the practice.
