Sorry I had to hit up three posts before I could make a thread!! I am a new golfer, just started about three months ago, I got into it mainly for work, and bc I was tired of breaking bones and getting hurt (snowboarding/motocross) but now I love it. I never would have thought I would have liked it as much as I do, I usually am into going fast and catching big air, but the thrill of a good shot (even though mine are few) is almost as much fun as hitting 50 footer on my snowboard. I sold most my dirtbikes and I am hooked on playing. I still stink pretty bad, but love going out. Just wanted to say hello and hopefully I can learn somethings from here. Take it easy

You enjoy yourself now. Stinking isn't so bad. My first few regulation rounds were in the 160 range. Now I'm threatening double-digit scores, any round now. It's great that you're focusing on the good shots. Those are why you play. I had 9 holes of bad shots yesterday, then 9 holes of decent shots, capped off by a lob wedge to within inches of the pin for a kick-in par. I tell this story not (only) to brag, but because you probably have a great shot or two you can think of. Remember it when you play, and it'll find friends in your memories. Let us know how it goes!

YOU SOLD MOST OF YOUR DIRTBIKES?!

Good lord man, you can't do both? I (re)took up golf a few months ago but still keep 6 bikes in the garage and my wife and I both still race regularly. C'mon, you can do it too! And if motocross is too tough on the bod, take up trials!

Lol...and don't worry, EVERYBODY stinks bad at golf at first. But that will change - especially if you have fun. That's the best incentive.

Good luck!

thanks guys, and I still ride a couple dirtbikes and have a track in the backyard, but racing days are over. As far as good shots go, I played last night pretty bad, but hit the pin on a par three from the tee, I thought it was going in!!

    • From all I have read, any known long term effects of an mRNA vaccine manifests within the first two months. It does NOT affect genetic makeup since it never enters the nucleus.  Conditions/effects that manifest over longer periods of time are caused by repeat use at some frequency that builds up incrementally...like.. tobacco or your garden variety narcotics, lead, arsenic, etc. 
    • I read the whole thing. I am thinking a "whole enchilada" badge should be awarded!   Seriously, the experience is playing in a national NCAA championship. While D3 is not as competitive as D1 streaming live on the Golf Channel, it is still the national championship. While no one wants to see their kid card a double or triple to start their round, it is still the national championship.  Oh, and it is competition golf. Everyone knows what they signed up for. The player seemed to accept his fate, and the coach should know better. Sorry but even if you don't have a shot of advancing or winning, you still follow the rules and protect the field.     
    • I said in my post, let’s start simple with 2-years.         You call it stubbornness, I call it prudence. Others disagree with “pretty damn effective” against current variants, let alone those to come.   It’s also worth noting that different vaccines have different levels of effectiveness.   Where Do COVID Vaccines Stand Against the Variants? Drug makers scramble to adapt vaccines to coronavirus variants before they outwit our immune systems.     Again, your personal opinion. And yes, I read and understand the science as well.   Not necessarily. Oftentimes it was my duty to actually put people in harms way…    
    • Of course.  Almost all of us strive, through research and training and other methods, to stay alive.   Military or not.  But in the military you must be willing to put yourself in harm's way to protect your country.  The result could be your death.  When you go in you know this.
    • Debunking mRNA Vaccine Misconceptions—An Overview for Medical Professionals mRNA vaccines are designed to withstand many variants.  It is literally impossible to say what variants will arise though. To the third, why would that matter on whether you take it or not? If you take more, you take more.  I'd assume the first two questions are the key for you, the third is more curiosity.  Would the third be a make it or break it moment?  If anything, it could be yearly.  But the more people vaccinate, the less likely it is we'd need to take more.
