Thought about a 1, but I'll give a 2 for enthusiasm and to encourage you to do something more creative.  That club isn't even in your sig.  And your username has the kind of ring that could make it go a long way with a clever avatar.

Did I do something wrong?  I'll give you a 9 for funny, but a 6 because I feel compelled to sit on a tiny chair outside the Asst. Principal's office.

Back to Matthew Brett to avoid the repeat.

5.  Appears to be a winter snowboarding scene, which is very cool if you can't golf during the winter, but lose the goggles for the pic.  I'd like to see who we're looking at.

No one personally.  My 12 year old Girl Scout with my Eagle Scout Godson (yeah, I'm proud of that) at dawn on Memorial Day.  They placed over 500 flags at the gravesides of veterans.

While technically Memorial Day specifically honors those who lost their lives in service to the Country, I'm willing to cut them a little slack on that point......  Pretty cool, at least from the point of view of this old Marine.

    • I graciously use ‘OSU’ for Ohio State despite everyone knowing that ‘OSU’ always refers to Oklahoma State University.😀
    • So I’ve been experimenting with a unique golf grip I saw on the golf channel. The only thing is I can’t  remember if it was Jerry Kelly or Fred Funk. I get them cornfused. Basically, you take the index finger of the left hand (R-golfer) and point it into the grip. It doesn’t wrap around like a traditional grip. Then you semi overlap with the other hand.  I’ve gain more distance and accuracy. I wish I could find an article on this unique grip. Please forward if you come across one.
    • Hey Kevin... you just won the prize for most acronyms in a single post.  😄😄😄And why do you think Oregon State University is so good?  And if you're referring to Ohio State, that would be TOSU.  
    • Of course. But there is a tradeoff to moving forward - fewer points available.  Does the reduction in expected strokes you gain by moving forward offset the available points you will lose? I'm sure the calculus is different for each golfer, but out of curiosity, I took a look at some PGA data. They list Par 4 Efficiency for holes measuring 350-400 yards and also from 450-500. The top 250 players are ranked. The median results are 450-500 yards - the median player (Webb Simpson) averages 4.04 strokes 350-400 yards - the median player (Jason Kokrak) averages 3.91 strokes For that set of players, a 20%-25% improvement in available points only costs them about 3.2% in expected strokes.  I'm not saying that data can be automatically translated to a bogey golfer, but it's a pretty strong indicator in favor of biting off as much yardage as you reasonably can.
    • Why? This doesn't make sense to me. LSW says the average 70s golfer hits the green from 130 yards less than 60% of the time, an a 90s golfer is more likely to miss the green than hit it from 75.  The further back you are, the less likely you are to make par. Or birdie, for that matter. Your best chance at par or birdie is to be as close to the hole as possible the whole time.
