God speed man. Basic training recommendations, never under any circumstances, raise your hand for anything. For example, who here is a golfer? Great, you will be a great floor mopper.....etc. Also, never take anything personal. DI's are like the internet, they do anything to get a rise out of you. Last, after every inspection, recheck your area because they will plant things in pockets during inspections.

After almost 2 decades of service in the Marine Corps I would like to wish you good luck... Give your all and expect the worse, you are soon (if you graduate Boot Camp and do become a Marine) going to be a part of the world finest fighting organization in the world. Also, it is good to see someone with a good handicap like yours join the Marine Corps, we need good golfers to compete in the Armed Forces Golf Championships which go every year. Look into the All-Marine Golf Program when your world finally settles down. It is going to take at least a year before everything "settles down". Do you know what program you enlisted for? Meaning what is your MOS going to be?

I went to boot camp in 1972. Time flies! Pay attention to the DIs, and help out your fellow recruits when they struggle.

Also, you want to switch to an all-gold Marine Corps emblem for your TST avatar. You'll understand why very soon in boot camp.

Good luck!

As a 20 year sailor with most of his time spent on AMPHIBS........... welcome aboard! I always liked it when the Marines came aboard, because the ship seemed to liven up some.

    • Day 205: I was able to squeeze in about 20 minutes work between rain showers. Just focused on transition feels and center face contact.
    • Yes, eventually you learn when to do it in order not to slow down play and still get it done without feeling hurried. I walk fast am am usually the first to the green many times, so that helps too. And by pacing, I simply walk to the pin and multiply by 3 ft/pace. Just in case anyone thinks otherwise. 
    • I did, too, but now they’re apparently trying to walk it back and scrambling to save face.   Deservedly so. Wilson should have gotten one, too, and suspended.   Just to play a little devil’s advocate, could their line of thinking be to hire these types of guys because they “understand” how to be rough without crossing the line? Or that they understand the difference between being physical and having intent to injure? Not saying I agree with it or believe it, but I’m just trying to see it from a different perspective.
    • I estimate first putt length. When I first took AimPoint, we practiced estimating distance because it was part of the mid-read technique. It’s pretty easy once you break the putt into sections visually.
