I guess I need to provide an update since I first posed on this topic.  

I am now retired from that large oilfield service and equipment company who liked to be known as No Other Vendor. 

These days I dabble in maintaining a few golf related websites so yes I am still one of those IT nerds on here. 

I am also active in 3 different golf tournament organizations.

Am now working with a German pharmaceutical company doing Cash Collections for their Brazil office, based out of Bangalore India.  Work hours start at 4pm local time and go on till 1 to 2 am.  Whenever possible I try to put in early morning golf rounds during the week.  When staying with my folks I try to go thrice to four times a week to my home course where I am a member.  In town, I tend to play once a week due to cost and availability of playing partners.

I work in IT specifically cloud computing now.   One of the great things about IT is that you can do it from anywhere.   I currently work from home, as my employer doesn’t have any corporate offices around me.  However our customers are everywhere, so a lot of us work remotely and only go to customer sites.   It gave me the ability to spend days at home with my two daughters until they went to kindergarten.  So I was very, very blessed that my girls know me as well as their mother since we were always together.

I'm a product consultant and work for myself. The products are mostly software-oriented and distributed in the legal, finance, and real estate industries. My reward for finishing a day of work is a practice session of golf.

I am a police officer in a city south of Boston, 6 years so far. I work the midnight shift to give myself more time for golfing, although it doesn’t always work out as planned haha.

    • Maybe manners are in shorter supply in general, but we still probably do better on the golf course than a lot of other places  Two that come to mind real fast are grocery stores and on the road.  The worst incident I ever saw was during a club championship four or five years ago at my old course, Kittyhawk. Two of my fellow C-flight players had to be physically separated after an accusation of cheating. Nobody got hurt, but the accused cheater wasn't seen again.  The people at my new course are shockingly nice. Everyone from staff to regular to random are very polite. I have yet to see any significant incidents out there.

    • Day 121: Lesson this morning. I've kind of managed to quiet my flip at impact with better palmar flexion, but still have have to improve delivery/impact. First thing was my instructor had me try were some stance adjustments to help with hip motion; a slightly open stance and/or opening my feet a bit (more bowlegged), which felt a little odd at first, but pretty quick adaption after a few balls. I will experiment with different degrees of both and see what works best. One of the feels we worked on in the lesson was a super exaggerated move toward the target with the lead side (but not head), kind of like the Smooth Criminal music video dance but to the side. In slow rehearsals this made me feel like I was going to fall over, but when putting this feel into a moderate speed swing, it improved delivery/impact position. Over the duration of the lesson I got pretty good at doing this with 7-iron. I really struggled executing this with hybrid. When I get hybrid, 3W, or driver in my hands, I often rush transition and overswing, so I need to work on smoothing the motion out with the longer clubs. I'll definitely spend some time working on longer clubs this time around.
    • Are you using the Ghin for maintaining everyone's handicap? If so, the adjustments are indicated for the players. Also, what scoring system do you use? Spreadsheets are a good manner and can be customized to meet any requirements.
