In a recent newspaper article a sponsor of a local 1 mile charity run was listed as "Coka Cola"! How does one misspell Coca Cola? I suppose it's because the shorthand is "Coke"!?

I was traveling for work and started noticing road construction signs.  As I drove closer they had a flashing sign that read right lane closed 6/5 threw 6/8. Makes me curious how far and why June 5th threw June 8th. Haha.

I guess that's like having a shouldemer separation! 

And before I get flamed for going OT, this is still a media mistake! Recently, there has aired in our local market a television ad for a local restaurant. The camera shot shows their "Surf 'n Turf", in which a large fly is seen crawling around on the lobster tail! 

YAAAAGGGHHHHHH! Doesn't anybody look at these things before airing them?!  BTW, that ad has been pulled!

Maybe the writer is referring to delay caused when playing golf on the computer, you know by hitting the "undo" button???

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

It's generally wise to, when making wisecracks about spelling, to watch your own spelling.

Huh? I wasn’t making a comment on his spelling. Just opening up a possibility that there might possibly be a way a 4 year old could possibly spell the word 😁

I didn't say you were making a comment on Scott's spelling. Both of you were, however, "making wisecracks about spelling."

I had a whattsapp message the other day, which I believe is true. It is a picture of a group of children, all them dressed as elves apart from one. The school requested the children come dressed as elves for a school play, but the one dressed incorrectly was dressed as Elvis Presley.

There are a bunch that could fit into that category. 

Toe the line (not tow) is one that comes to mind.

Last week in the local paper, "The Burger Guyz" had an article rating another upscale burger joint that are now all over the area. The description of one burger included the type of cheese that was on it, "Monetary Jack"! Hmmmm, sounds expensive! No wonder the plate was priced at $12!

 Biride?

It's the European Tour, so maybe he's playing in a country where he wins a bride if he makes the putt, and they misspelled bride? 🙂

    • At 5’ 7”, 5 feet seems fairly short. Ian Woosnam was 5’ 4”. Still, 7’ would be a real hassle on a daily basis. I reluctantly would take the 5’.
    • Day 2: 11/30/2022 Spent about a half hour (twice) in the garage hitting balls into my net.  All of it was bulk practice with a 7-iron. I was working totally and completely on swing path. One of my real bad habits that continually creeps into my swing is a bad hand path compared to club path. Yoda has given me a couple of drills which work well to fix this, but sometimes the habit comes back.  So, lots of rehearsals and lots of foam path reminder trainers. Trying to keep that hand path where I want it. 
    • Yeah, something like that. It's getting a little off topic here, but this one's good: Yeah, so, I don't know about that one Cedric. Mac's never been on GEARS, and almost all of the Tour players will actually WIDEN the lead arm adduction angle during the early part of the backswing, because their left shoulder is moving forward a bit in their shoulder joint. I'll update the other topic with a bit more on this. You gave me an idea for a tweet.
    • Day 15 (30 Nov 22) - Rainy outside, so I did mirror work focused on setup, making slow-mo 1/2 swings.  
    • Interesting. No adduction until P2-P4 reminds me of how Rory and Xander's load the arms. I'm not heading that direction with my swing (modeling mine on how Mac O'Grady loaded his arms). Would be interested to look at individual swings on GEARS as opposed to the tour average for this one.
