I know you're thinking of this one:

The note says that Nate drained this one on #12 at Talamore (Thursday PM Fourball) in a match against you and Phil.  That got BLUE (Nate/Dave K) to AS on the back nine.

I had forgotten about that, but thanks for making me relive the pain, @RandallT:pound:

But seriously, it felt like there were a lot of these when we played @cipher. I remember multiple times where he seemed out of the hole but would suddenly make a bomb or have an excellent pitch shot to steal the hole from us.

Maybe there was.  Maybe I just cant picture them through the blinding and glorious light of eagles being dropped on us.  ;-)

This should be an interesting year coming up. I will try and work on the swing a bit over the winter if I can find the time. I definitely want to give it one more solid effort on correcting the driver swing as soon a spring hits. I also picked up a Ping G driver which seems so much more forgiving(I have only hit it once at the range though) than my SLDR TP was. I am not sure what I was thinking with that one other than it was a cheap driver to buy when getting back into playing again after the injury.

I did not work on anything with the swing.  Life changes, you move on.  I don't have the desire to practice and play much anymore after everything that has happened and with the place I am at in life.  I've only played golf a couple times this year.  I gave it a good five years of commitment to improving the game, and learned so much along the way.  This thread was a lot of fun, thanks to all who weighed in over the years.

Golf will always be here waiting for you if you decide to come back to it.

Keep in touch, man.

I will still play some here and there, especially considering I need to for the company at times.  But I am finished with the early morning stuff and with working on things.  I know my limitations at this point.  If I play it will be for fun moving forward, basically the way golf used to be for me before 2011.  I may get out to Sand Valley this year or next with my Dad and that would be great fun.

Checking in.  I must have something against my left hand and wrist as I decided to break it playing soccer(yeah I know, you are not supposed to use your hands in soccer), back in the beginning of January.  Bone still has not started coming back together as of the end of January and I am still in a splint.  I am hoping that I do not need surgery again.  If all goes well I will probably try and play a little golf this year and a lot of disc golf(maybe some tournaments).  I moved last year a little closer to work within' the Milwaukee area and basically live next to a very nice Municipal course.  They have some pretty good deals so I will try to get out once every couple weeks or so as I can.

It's been a bad week here for left wrists. I've seen two broken wrists and one bad sprain. None are mine (or Natalie's), knock on wood.

Get well soon.

That's terrible man. Maybe it will start coming together soon and you'll have a speedy recovery from there.

Thanks.  Did you get the same ice storms there?

    • Today I started using mine to practice on the carpet at home.
      Primarily for chipping and checking impact and flight direction. That helps me adjust my grip/clubhead angle. Their weight and material will obviously result in a different distance when hit in comparison to a regular golf ball. Therefore I would only use it for occasional practice at home.
    • So a local cadie who cadies the course whole year round, knows less about the course then a pro caddie who visits the course once a year (for a week). Or even less because the pro’s don’t play the course every year.                                     And about not speaking English, what do we know for sure? Even caddies in Marroko at mediocre courses speak enough English, at least enough to caddie. And Matt doesn’t speak a word Mexican/Spanish too? People find ways to communicate.                                             One way or an other, Kuchar was at the top of his form. The way the caddie acted could be more important then is given credit for.
    • 72 last week at TPC Summerlin from the TPC tees (6400) in maybe one of the coldest conditions I've ever played in. 71 today back home, hit 15 greens. Missed four birdie putts within 5ft and got a bad break where I drove it into a bunker and it plugged in the lip (made bogey). Not bad for the range being closed and only getting to practice once this week and not much last week either. This was my drive on 15, and it wasn't like it was a high fade, solid medium flight draw.  
    • Yeah it was a dumb move PR wise to not be very generous with the bonus.  Can't really compare the usual rate with that week with Ortiz, completely different situations. John Wood is there for him every minute of every week, scouting the course beforehand, getting yardages, mapping greens and paying for his own travel. They can also act as emotional "support" and the good ones figure out when to give it and when to hold back. Ortiz is nowhere close to building up that "sweat equity" to earn 10%. If I was John Wood I would have been very insulted if my guy paid a temp caddy 120K.  
    • “How much should you pay?” questions tend to select responses. How much should you pay for a car? Obviously the guy who paid over a million for his McLaren doesn’t think everyone should; that’s the whole point of having one. Likewise, the guys with the $2k custom Scottys want something exclusive.   So it makes sense that most of the responses are $300 or less. If you just want to make putts, and know basically what you need in terms of length and style (mallet, blade, etc.), I don’t think you need to spend more than $100 on ebay. I’ve sold several perfectly serviceable and respectably branded putters for less.   Personally, I paid $350 for my Evnroll ER5, which I love. I like it so much that I’m going to spend even more for the black one when it becomes available. It was a subtle difference between the ER5 and my Ping Tyne ($189, I think), that it replaced. But given a choice, I’d choose the Evnroll every time. I can’t afford — and have no desire — to run with the big dogs when it comes to putters. And if I couldn’t afford a $350 putter, I think I’d do ok with any of the ones that I sold. But it’s a hobby, and it could be worse. I could be collecting large stationary engines.
