Hello. I'm one of those folks that has sort of hovered around the edges of golf all my life but hasn't really committed to the game until very recently. Knowing my parents, I expect I had a club shoved into my hands within hours of starting to walk. During my teens and early 20's I played fairly regularly, though with the many distractions a young man faces I never really committed. Then marriage and other interests put the clubs into the back of the closet except for some brief periods when I sort of took the game back up to please other folks. Now, pushing 59, I've decided to take the game up for myself. I am hopeful that this subtle difference will mean a long term commitment and a lot of good times to come. Being also somewhat of a computer geek I had to find a good golf forum to follow and this one appears to fit the need nicely. I doubt I'll be a prolific poster, but will be lurking about. Jim

    • 10th round of the year today.  Frost delay but we eventually got out!  Great round, a one over 73!  37/36.  2 bogeys and one birdie on the front. Back nine was solid 7 of 7 fairways, 8 GIRs. Missed the 18th green for my only miss.  Chipped to two inches. Even par on the back. Overall, 11 fairways, 14 Greens in Regulation!  32 putts. (Played Pinehurst #6, White Tees)
    • One person that has publicly declined. There have been others over the years that have declined before there was any public announcement. A few from Trump, a few from previous Presidents. I will disagree on the second point. As to your first. Charles Lindbergh accepted the Congressional Medal of Honor, France's Legion of Honor, and the Order Of The German Eagle (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Order_of_the_German_Eagle).
    • I bought a small sheet of polycarbonate at Home Depot, 8"x10", to place behind my ball for feedback on my mat. It was like 5 bucks. It is held in place by tees. You definitely know when you hit a fat shot...
    • I have never really held a negative opinion of Reed. Tremendous talent. Probably a much tougher upbringing than most PGA Tour pros to begin with. Probably lights a fire that makes him as good as he is.
