What TST members would you most like to play a round of golf with?

137 posts in this topic

Name one or more TST members that you have never played golf with before and mention why you think it would be fun to play a round of golf with them and why.  Make it funny, fun or serious .

I am going to say Ernest Jones and Stretch.  EJ because I think he would keep things from being too "serious", and he gets a dry sense of humor, and Stretch, because I never have seen a mountain hit a ball in person before.

My foursome would Golfingdad, Beachcomber and Cipher. These guys are all better than me so I would learn a lot and I think it would be a very low pressure, comfortable foursome. We would have lots of laughs then beers and BBQ after. Sadly, I live pretty far from you cats so I don't see it happening anytime soon. GREAT idea for a thread.

Nice choices, all fellow evo students as well.  Those two Cali cats would be pretty cool to play a round of golf with as well.

Patrick57, Logman, and Shorty.

Hell, I'd throw Erik in there and I'd just caddy.

That would be EPIC. But no BBQ afterwards methinks...

I would go with Golfingdad and Fourputt.  I also would really like to play golf with ggiese.  But, alas, he is not available for slumming with the likes of me.

How about predictions?  I think the top five mentions will round out like this:

  1. golfingdad
  2. beachcomber
  3. iacas
  4. ernest jones.
  5. mvmac

Fortunately, I've had the chance to play with quite a few members already, and I'm adding bplewis24 to list in a couple of weeks .. So not counting all of them, there are still several I would love to play with. If I have to pick only 3 I think I'm picking Ernest and fourputt, and were meeting David in Florida for a round at sawgrass or bay hill or some nice place like that. We can talk golf swing, or even rules .,, but politics is off limits!!! :)

Probably pretty accurate.  But hopefully it is not just a popularity contest.  Maybe people can think out of the box a bit?

Yeah David would be a good choice too. I gotta admit I get a little jealous when I read through your so-cal golfing threads.

Sounds like a blast!

I think my fourth would be Mr. Desmond. That would be cool as well, because any democrat living in Texas has my respect!

Or maybe even Fourputt, I promise not to let "one" stand leg from my bag touch the green.

For the record, notice I didn't pick golfingdad! I heard from beachcomber and Ernest that that guy is a douchebag! ;)

Unfortunately more douche than bag, which can lead to things getting a little...damp.

Stretch, Harmonius, and the infamous Sean Miller.

Jamo and Zip as alternates.

I was just going to say you and me versus Jamo and the sadly absent delav. They'd have to give us a few shots, though!

My back up group may be Rolopolo, Gilberg and his Uncle (not legally) . Doubt we would be finished in under 4.5 hours though....

    • It's simple, really, if you want the ball to roll out more, play a less lofted club.  It's not unreasonable to use a 6 or 7 iron, if the greens are slow enough that it works.  On the other hand, if you're getting good results the way you're doing it, not much reason to change. It's good to have more shots in your repertoire, so it might be a good shot to learn, even if you don't use it much.  
    • I don't think my golf budget will allow me to play #2, though 
    • Married for 32 years. But my wife plays Saturday and Sunday too, and ladies night is Wednesday, she sometimes plays 18 before that,  the only time I'm there on my own is Friday. Some guys hate that their wife plays, but I love it.  Did I mention, we spent two weeks in Ireland recently, played 8 rounds of golf.
    • I've seen several videos and read several articles of instructions (and yes, even watched the instruction on the golf channel) for chipping and there is this pretty well known rule of flying the ball about 1/3 and letting it roll the remaining 2/3 (I may have those backwards).  So my question is actually not about that. My question is that for many, many rounds now I cannot seem to get the ball to roll out at all. I have to fly the ball at LEAST 80% and might get 10% roll (leaving 10% putt). Granted, this is with my 55 SW. But even if I play the ball on my back foot, feet very close together, and a good amount of forward shaft lean (and even flopping the ball) the freaking ball doesn't roll. It there a smoking gun for this type of problem? Is my angle at impact or some swing mechanism generating a ton of spin that is causing the ball to stop on a dime? Or fly too high? Alternatively, my approach shots are almost always < 12-inches from my ball mark. This can be a 4-i down to a SW. I typically can't see the ball land because my eyesight isn't stellar, so I don't know if it's hopping forward and spinning back or not. But I'm really thinking not. Not sure if one has to do with the other. Now, the courses I play on are pretty darn soft and slow... so maybe that's just how these types of greens play? You just never see that on the PGA tour. 
    • So, I haven't done any real practice since May and got to the range today.   I've got a new driver last week and wanted to practice with it since I hit it really well this weekend.   I've always been inconsistent with my 3W & 5W and this weekend really got me because they cost me some strokes.  After watching a few videos from Mark Crossfield and the Me and My Golf guys, I've concluded that the way to work on getting consistent contact is to make sure I get my weight forward so as to avoid laying back and topping the ball. In both instances I've found that on the downswing if I focus on getting the instep of my back foot towards the ground rather than turning my leg and getting on my toes (which feels more natural) that I make better contact more consistently. As per @mvmac's advice from a while ago, to avoid hooking the ball, I also focus on feeling as though I'm hitting to the right at impact.   So, in these vidoes I'm doing these three things: Getting weight forward Pushing my instep to the ground Swinging towards the right. I know I cross the line at the top which I didn't realize but any thoughts would be appreciated.
