My Golf League Story Of The Day

12 posts in this topic

Can't begin to guess how many of us are in a golf league. This is about your story of the day in your league - it can be about your best shot, an unforgetable birdie or even your partner hitting a shot out of the woods while being chased out by a snake.

Our league will start this coming Monday.

Last season - par four, dogleg right, hit tee shot into the right rough loaded with pine trees.

2nd shot used a 3 iron to punch it onto the fairway (ended up where the tee shot should have been).

3rd shot hit a full 9 iron and knocked it in for a birdie.

It's such an easy game.

Got rained out first two weeks even the geese sought refuge under the trees - then shot 43 for first time out.

Well... it looks like only two.

I would've guessed quite a bit more.

Hit some great drives in my golf league yesterday, swung through impact zone to full finish and concentrated on being less handsy. Never hit the ball so flush.

Wednesday night I shot a 40 with only one birdie and I missed two three-footers. Still not sure how I did it.

I've averaged well over 100 round per year for more than 20 years and I avoid leagues like the plague.

..........are there any others like me???

I'd rather just play golf.  lol...........league play tends to be so slow and filled with what I call "non-golfers" that I don't want any part of it.

I'm in a league. My wife gets mad when I golf with them because it's always 5+ hours. They always run 5somes....so slow. But the group has some great guys and we have a blast.

I'm in a small league at work.  We play on Mondays at a below average public course with a quirky set up.  The front nine has 3 par 5s (soon to be 4) and 3 par 3s.  The back nine, 2 par 5s and 4 par 3s.  In addition, they don't seem to give a hoot about the Monday folks.  The first three weeks, we get to tee off to the side of the boxes.  If they do construction, it is while we play.

Last week, we had to wait on the second hole for a dump truck to drop a load on our tee box.  The only redeeming feature is the price.

I do have fun though, as most of the players are good guys.  We trash talk a lot, which keeps it light.

I'm in a league this year. My partner is a friend who carries a vanity cap. The first few weeks, it's killed us. His 9 hole cap is 8. On our course, that means averaging 43 with your 10 low scores. We have played three matches so far this year and his low score has been 51. While I've been fairly steady and right around my cap, he's killing our chances. Luckily, the league institutes a "league" cap starting on match 4. So, I'm guessing my partner will be double-dotting on many holes...

    • 2/27 - Mirror work at the gym. Focused on float load feel at transition.
    • And the ankle is on the circumference of that circle, or really even a little outside of it, not within it. So why would you be making a radius around the ankle?   Again, you shouldn't rotate around the ankle, you should rotate away from it. So even if you rotated parallel to the ground, then the basic geometry says the distance between the ankle and hip must still increase. To keep that distance the same would just about require rotating on an incline that is tilted in the wrong direction. It's just hard to imagine what the swing you are describing looks like. Sway so bad you really do end up centered over the trail ankle, followed by a massive reverse pivot?       
    • I'd estimate it's in the 40-50 course range, mostly in the Carolinas.  Some of my favorites have been: Caledonia- Pawleys Island, SC Thornblade- Greenville, SC Stono Ferry- Charleston, SC Rocky River- Concord, NC The Walker Course- Clemson, SC  
    • Just finished a big (multiple week) job on my truck and I wanted to point something out to anybody willing to read this. I sometimes get crap from people (mostly co-workers and stuff) about "how can you afford this/that, you must make the big bucks." No. I would have to say the #1 reason my wife and I have as much money in the bank as we do is these top 3 reasons: 1. We don't have kids (lol, that was an easy/obvious one) 2. We don't blow money on big $100+ drinking nights out or fancy restaurants even though we can afford to do so. We enjoy the little things and we are happy to have a nest egg to keep our stress levels lower 3. I do a lot of DIY, including with our vehicles. And it's the vehicles that pays off BIG TIME. Case in point: My truck is old but I still love it. But it had creaking and wobbly sounds that were tough to diagnose. Not a single mechanic I brought it to could properly diagnose it (by a LONG shot). So obviously they all recommended to start replacing the typical suspects and see which one ends up fixing it: wheel bearings, front rotors and pads, ball joints, sway bar bushings, tie rod and bushing, sway bar end links, control arm bushings (I ended up not installing), and shocks. Those were all suspect.  All of this work was quoted at >$4,000. The lower ball joints alone was $1,000 just for labor, by the way. The truck is only worth probably $3-4k.  I bought all of the parts for $180 + $50 for 2 nice new deep socket sets + $75 for some harbor freight tools including and angle grinder, some better jack stands, an air chisel, grease gun, etc. + $40 for a NICE Milwaukee metal drill bit set So total was $305 for parts and NEW tools. Plus I rented a couple things that I turned out not needing. BTW I did the wheel bearings a few weekends before this but that wasn't long and only $100. That wasn't in the shop's quote since I had already done them. The work took about 22 hours total over 2 weekends. Car was safely drive-able after each weekend no problem. 1. I'm a ROOKIE mechanic at best lol. 2. This is on a freaking DODGE. Dodge's are notorious for being a royal pain in the caboose. 3. 2/3 of the total time was spent on one side of the car learning how to do this stuff as I went (and youtube).  4. Everything was rusted to hell. That takes time. 5. I don't even own a freaking impact gun guys. That's like the fundamental mechanic's tool to have, and I don't because I'm a cheap guy haha. So bottom line, $300 for parts and some new tools I can use anytime in the future, and I now have $4,000 in our bank account that is free to use. I also know that it was done CORRECTLY. And isn't it funny that the rookie mechanic (who hit his own thumb with a sludge hammer in the process... yea that hurts (still...)) completed this job with rookie tools, rookie knowledge, on freaking jack stands, in less time than the quote 25 hours to complete the job that the shop quoted? I understand they quote based on worse case (having to cut parts out because of rust and such) but EVERYTHING on this truck was rusted beyond belief and had to be cut out basically. I still handled it in < 22 hours.  Ask yourself: would you be willing to work hard for 22 hours at a rate of ~$168 per hour? Granted there's some risks involved. Maybe some people they aren't worth it. But I even factored in if I had to rent a car for a few weeks because I royally effed up  I'd still come out way ahead.
