Hello all. I've been reading this forum for a few months and decided to join up. I've been a golfer all my life. However, I am a prime example of not achieving past your goals. My goal all through High School was to play college golf. So I worked hard and I was an All State golfer in Utah my junior and senior years and made it to play at Trinity University in San Antonio in 2003. I got the bag with my name on it and thought I had "made it" in a much lighter sense of the word. Long story short, I never got used to the pressure over every shot and struggled for 4 years just to stay on the team. Now, 2 years out of college I am working to get my game back to where it was. So count me in on having lots of questions and being a "student of the game" once again.

Highlights of my golf career:

1. Played Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hill, and Spanish Bay with my Dad on a golf trip.
2. Shot 70 twice (have never broke into the 60s)
3. 2 hole in 1's (hence the user name)

Thanks, Rick! what is travel golf league?

Little John Golf League   website is www.littlejohngolfleague.com

Schedule for events is on the website.  We play pretty much every other Sunday morning at a different golf course in the Greater Houston Area.  All play is stroke play and we payout 3 best net scores.  We have 2 flights split by handicap index so we pay out 6 places net.  We also payout closest to the pin on all par3s, most birdies front 9, most birdies back 9.  We offer an optional combined gross/net skins game.  Handicaps range from a +3 to 36.

Greetings! During the 1990s, I went to school at University of North Texas, at the other end of the state above Dallas.

Congrats on making it through four years of college as a golfer. I teach in a University business schoo, and I see what a time-consuming sport college golf can be - especially with springtime road trips to tournament.

Good luck on your game as a "big kid!"

    • You know, I don't appreciate being called ignorant, uneducated and a moron just because I have a different opinion than you.  That is what is wrong with people, just because a person has a different opinion doesn't necessarily make them ignorant or stupid or a moron.  I was raised differently.  I was raised to respect a persons opinion and just because it differs than yours, doesn't mean the person is a moron or ignorant.  It means they have a different opinion, and they have a right to that.  Wouldn't discussions be boring if everyone agreed with everyone in the discussion?  During those productive discussions, who says one person is right and one person is wrong? Also, I don't believe in most conspiracy theory's.   You have your opinion, and I have mine.  Just because I don't agree with you  doesn't mean I'm ignorant.  And you are not ignorant either.  Show some respect, man.
    • I think we like Rory and don’t like to see him struggle at times. But golf is hard and he also has been trying a few changes. First, last fall was adding distance which he admits caused problems. Second, he added a high fade to his long irons. Those take time to dial in. Lastly, there are a lot of great golfers out there.
    • Signs of life with my golf game. Ugly double at 1.... then made 7/8 pars and the only bogey was a 3 putt where I missed a short one. Otherwise I played those last 8 holes hitting 5/8 and 3 for 3 on saves. I want the first hole back tho. Regardless left the course feeling good  and to top it off my league partner took the night off with bad reaction to his vaccine so I was playing by myself and earned us 2nd place points for the week.
    • Maybe Tiger is part of the problem. He set an unprecedented bar height and every promising talent since has been compared to him, but the reality is that Tiger is the anomaly. Every other professional golfer has a larger variation in their performances, and that is the norm. Rory emerged in a time after Tiger had dominated and when he showed his talent, a lot of people expected him to contend with Tiger. When he fell short, the word «overrated» was thrown into the discussion. He could beat Tiger and everyone else, just not as frequently as Tiger. @measureoffsetinnm Yes. If we compare Rory to every other golfer not named Tiger, he is one of the best. Look at Spieth, Koepka, DJ, JT etc. They got periods of greatness and periods of less than great play.
    • Can anyone tell me how good/bad these Red golf balls are, I've seen them for sale on eBay and thinking of trying them. Cheers
