Introductions.....

6 posts in this topic

Figure being locals we may be a little more formal and get to know each other a little...... I'll start.

My name is Tim and live in Racine, married have 3 kids from 12-17 (1 my own, 2 step).  I have been golfing on and off for years. Typically I shoot between 45-55 for 9 holes, not the greatest but I love playing the game! I am always looking to get out and play new courses. I save half my vacation for the year to use for golfing days in the summer. I consider my "home" course Brighton Dale in Kenosha County since I play league there with work. Feel free to contact me anytime to golf!

Hello all,

My name is Kevin and live in Neenah. I'm 26 as of yesterday, married two years in August with one boy who's 4 months. It's about time to get him fitted for clubs! We just closed on a house June 28 and I'm already thinking about building a putting green in the back yard. I doubt I will ever follow through with it though! My home course I would say is Westridge Golf Course in Neenah.

Nice to meet you Tim! Have you golfed Petrifying Springs in Kenosha? I played there earlier this summer when I was in a wedding in Racine. Shot a 92. Not a lot of water, but the rough is rough and the course was not very forgiving! On the way back from the wedding I got a speeding ticket in Racine County on hwy 41, well I think it's hwy 94 down there. Firsrt time ever I pleaded "Not Guilty" so I may have a mandatory court date down in the are coming up. Haha, the ticket can't get any worse, right?


Looking forward to meeting everyone,

Kevin

Nathan and I live in Oconomowoc.  I am 33, married with a 5yo boy and a 2yo girl.  I play nine holes out at Ironwood in sussex almost every morning during the week before work. Set out with a 5 year goal of getting to scratch(just want to get around a 1 really) 3 years ago.  Well almost three years, I am in year three of that timeline.  I work in Waukesha.

Nice to meet you guys! Kevin... I just played Petts last Wednesday for the first time in years, very fun course. I live about 20 mins north of there. It's good to hear what others think of your local courses cause I think we tend to took our regular courses for granted after a time.

Hey fellas, My name is Will. I'm originally from Milwaukee reside in Kaukauna now. I have a 2 month old baby boy and will be getting married in September of 2015. I'm fairly new to the game of golf. This is my second year of actually trying to get better. I played well over 100 rds of golf last year and itching to get back on the course again. I don't know many people in my area so i tend to golf alone most of the time. I'm excited about talking the game of golf with fellow wisconsinites and maybe picking up a much needed few golfing buddies along the way. Thanx.. I'm also new to TST also

I'm in the land of year-round golf now, but grew up in Racine and went to school in Madison.  My family is from Appleton and Milwaukee.

They make some damn good cheese in Kaukauna!

    • I know what u mean. I found Bridgestone e5 brand new for 14.98 a dozen which is a 50% savings!!!! I wanted to shout it from the roof tops!!!! Bought six dozen...then shouted it from the roof tops. From the response, it appears no one is listening to anything golf ball related being shouted from the mountain tops as my forum entry had 0 replies. But hey!!! GO US!!!! Everybody loves golf ball deals!! :)
    • I agree with the first reply. Take some time away and give yourself an opportunity to recharge. We all have our slumps - even the tour pros. Remember, it's just a way to get some fresh air and exercise!  
    • I had a stretch like that about a month ago. For a few solid weeks (playing nearly every day), I couldn't break 80 for the life of me. I kept shooting 83, 86, 84... that sort of thing. And I think I was just trying too hard to fix everything all at once.  I started to overthink about mechanics and my confidence was low and I was tense over every shot and every putt and it all just compounded into poor scores and frustration. But then I decided to take a few days off and then followed it up with a few good sessions on the driving range where I focused on swinging smoothly and swinging within myself.  The issues I was dealing with seemed to fix themselves.  I didn't change anything about my swing, I just focused on approaching the game with "ease".  And at the moment I am playing some of the best golf in my life! Everybody goes through their slumps. Maybe just take some time away and when you return remind yourself to slow down and play within yourself. I bet that will help a lot!
    • I disagree with this. Let's take Titleist and/or Mizuno for example, the manufacturing tolerances are the same, the heads are all coming from the same factories and they all get assembled in the same building. In terms of design they probably spend much less time on the muscle back irons because there is only so much you can do with a blade design. More time goes into the design, R&D of the AP irons than the blades.
    • I was in the same place as u about 9 months ago. My home course was a very tight challenging par 66 golf course. Between the terrible hooking and the complete inability to get the golf ball in the air and the losing of 14 golf balls during one round I absolutely hit rock bottom. I was terribly depressed, angry, and heart broken. Unlike most everyone I know, golf is the only interest I possess other than my family. I own firearms but I do not hunt. I enjoy shooting and bowling over work but Im not overly passionate about either. My round on that given day concluded with me on 18 25 yards before the green aimed away from it. I retrieved the last 9 balls from my bag and hit every single one as hard as I could into the lake!!! I yelled, I cussed, I screamed, I behaved like an absolute lunatic. Broken and ashamed, I returned to my car and swore that no matter what I was done for six weeks. I had lost control and track of my priorities. I was holding golf above all else including my beautiful wife and amazing young son. Im ashamed to admit that esp publicly, but golf had consumed me. It was hell, but for six weeks; no golf channel, no golf browsing, no sand trap visits, didnt touch a golf ball or golf club. After six weeks and re prioritizing my life (getting my shit together) I returned refreshed and re discovered my love for the game. And now Ive dropped 8 strokes from my handicap and have done so while playing much longer more difficult courses. And MOST importantly Ive learned to balance golf with life and things that actually matter. Like family!! If u have reached the point u are at now, u are in danger of becoming me. RUN!!! Dont walk...RUN away from golf before its too late. For six weeks ignore all things golf at any and all costs!! Then come back and see what happens. Hopefully u rekindle your passion, if not, theres no law that says u must play golf. There comes a point where giving it up is the right move. ;) But I bet it doesnt come to that. Best of luck!!!!  P.s. Golf takes a lot of time away from the ones we love. Spend that extra time with those u cherish most.
