10,000 hours goes by way faster in a 3 minute montage. I'd go that route instead.

I think Erik should give you one of those awesome Sand Trap Tour Staff bags that he gives some of the supporting members as a sign of support.  I love mine and the 3 point Izzo harness is really comfy for my caddy.  I think it would be boss with all the hybrids that are needed for the Champions Tour.  Just think of all the headcovers and endorsement opportunities.  The sky's the limit!

Well I certainly am now

I wish I had a montage for the last minute Thanksgiving shopping I'm going to do later.

Instead of putting in all the time and work, why don't you just find a tournament that has some open qualifying? That way you can just get in a tournament via a qualifier, win the tournament, then you will get your tour status. That would be much easier than doing a q-school.

Or just go to your local waffle house and start acting like the multiple major winner that you are to become.  That will show everyone and jump start the soon to be media frenzy that I have been referring to as "Shorty Mania".

As far as te 10,000 hours goes, I've decided that quality time THINKING about golf has to be part of that. It's like musicians thinking about and memorising scores when they're travelling.

It's getting easier all the time. Over the last three years I reckon I've spent 4 hours a day thinking about golf.

Half way there already!

If you can dream it, you can be it, and I'm dreaming BIG!!

Testing has already begun on the prototype "action figures".

It's a work in progress.

I think you can do it man.


Put over 50% of your time in the short game. Pros practice their short games for 8 hours everyday. You need to be able to get up and down 85% of the time.

Pros also make 95% of 10 foot putts, so make sure to practice your putting a lot.

I hate to say it, but if you can´t carry your 6 iron 200 yards you have 0 chance of making it.

I also suggest bathing in ice water everyday to make you mentally strong. I got this tip from David Toms after he shot the course record at my club (a 58 using only a shovel and baseball bat as clubs)

Considering that your swing speed is 126mph and you hit your driver 330 yards and carry your 3 hybrid 250 yards, I'm 100% sure you have the distance to go pro.  Stop talking about it and do it already!

I like it  - but I think I should be wearing "old school" golf clothing. Thanks. Could you let me see the next version by Friday?

The grills are cool - and I'm seriously thinking about getting some. It's bound to psche out some of the competition on the practice fairway!

I'm shooting for the super seniors tour. Only 2.5 years before I'm 60, so that should give me plenty of time to get my game ready. Would like to win enough money so I could afford one of those 12,000 acre ranches like Greg Norman owns in Colorado.

I'll keep you guys up to date on my progress.

As a show of confidence, you should start stockpiling weapons so that when you live next to Greg, you can go shooting with him. I am calling Feherty right now so that he can have first dibs on documenting your meteoric rise. Man, this thread is really giving me hope!  Thanks guys.

    • Speaking of 4:30 POP, if someone plays in five hours, that is fast, and if someone plays in three hours, that is slow. When you have had to deal with 6 hour rounds, 4:30 seems like a reasonable compromise. When I'm marshaling, it is not "recommended", it is the maximum allowed (in my  mind). 😁 In our case, there is some rhyme and reason to 4:30, but you'll have to follow me . . . .  Each of our first four sets of four holes has a par 3, a Par 5, and two Par 4s.  Bobby Clampett consulted on the course design, and the Par 3 are paced at 12 minutes, the Par 4s at 15 minutes, and the Par 5s at 18 minutes.  Figure that out and you will see the each set of four holes in 1 hour.  17 & 18 are Par 4s, so that's another 1/2 hour, and, Wallah!, 4:30. (PS:  I'm then only one left of the early employees who knows that.) It's really easy to marshal when you get that four-holes-an-hour ingrained in your brain, but it's amazing how many brains are not ingrainable. BTW, unless I'm really have a good round, if I'm stuck in a 4:30 round, I normally go in.  One day this year on the tenth tee I looked at the other guys and said, "Looks like rain.  Bye."  I'm sure it rained somewhere that day. How many of you have marshaled a tough course on a busy day?
    • If you have administrator access, you can see the entire history, but the rest of the world can't.  I have access as my club's handicap committee chair, and the pro shop does as well, but that's all as far as I know.  Rank and file golfers can't go any further back than the 12 month history available in the phone app.  Apparently I can look up the complete history for anyone, as long as I know their name.  
    • Last week had two birdies.  Not sure which was the better shot, but here goes. 1) PW from about 110 or so and put it pin high within about 3 to 4 feet and make the putt. 2) nGIR, probably around 5-10 yards from the green.  Chip in for birdie
    • Wow!  Thanks! I've been on Internet forum for 20 years, and I can count on one hand how many times I've seen someone actually compliment someone for their comments. So, kudos to you. 😁
    • Hmm, I could of swore several years back I was in the Golf shop and our pro pulled my history. Maybe the MAGA Assoc. is different? I can check the next time at the club. I could be mistaken, wouldn't be the first time...
