Sorry for the delayed response... but "life happens." 🙂

 

Well, we NEVER lost a football game to the Buckeyes while I was in school. 🙄*

And NONE of our long winning streak (Where have you gone Earl Bruce?) was VACATED (2010) due to cheating. 😜

And how is Maurice Clarett?  Has he learned how to read yet? 😆 

 

[*Full disclosure: we also never beat Notre Dame 😒 ]

 

 

 

Maurice has come a long way.

Quote from above:

“Clarett has become a celebrated public speaker[2] across the country[3] by speaking candidly about his previous struggles and successful recovery. Additionally, Clarett founded a successful behavioral health agency in both Youngstown and Columbus”

Things I learned on my first 18...

If there's a group playing behind you and you feel like your rushing because of it, it's better to let them play through.  [After I did that, I landed my next 3 tee shots on the green (3 chances for birdie and 3 chances at par... missed all six shots 🤪).

I need to work on my putting and chipping.  This is where I can really lower my score.

Mucked around for years playing every few years. Busted my knee and was told golf was OK so went down to a social comp. First round 118 with (somehow) a birdie on 18.

I can now answer the poll. 😃

Is that Lake St Clair Metropark? (AKA Metropolitan Beach)?

Only like 6 years ago if it was under 130 I'd be shocked. My first few years I was called the worst golfer anyone had ever seen lol

First round was in '06 and the course was pretty open, meaning that you could be well out of the fairway but still in play so not a lot of penalties. Think it was a 120, had been hitting into a net and at the range a couple of times before getting on a course. Have been addicted since.

First round was several years ago, easily in the 130's or higher. I was awful. Started playing again last year, every other week or so. I'm consistently in the mid 90's now, slow progress but I'm hoping to break 90 in the next 6 months. I've gone from trying to make decent contact to trying to kill the ball and now I'm in the consistency and damage control phase.

My first round was 32 years ago, when I was 42. Having grown up in the Elizabeth Port in NJ, golf was something that never entered my life. We lived in a flat over a bar across from the Singer Manufacturing Company. At the ripe old age of 42 I put away the tools and became a manager, and the company president asked me if I played golf. I chuckled and said no, and then he said if you ever want to move up in this company you'll learn to play. The rest is history, at 74 I'm still working on my swing even though I'm long retired.

Gotta ask, did you move up in the company as your game improved?
