I noticed my post count approaching my birth year.  Feel free to insert as many "You're Old" or "You live in your Mom's basement" replies as needed.

I voted for the second option. You actually don't post enough, B!

I look at my posts like years. So I'm currently in the year 2170. Erik so far ahead they've finally invented hoverboards.

In the year 3446 will I finally be able to hit a drive 300 yards like everyone else?

What gets me is guys who have been on the board for a year and have more posts that I do, yet they spend 10 hours on the range and play 3 rounds each week.  That's a lot more leisure time than I have, and I'm retired.  They must have solved the riddle of the flux capacitor.

To be honest, I have been trying to get my post count to 1000 before our next So. Cal. outing. This is proving to be more difficult than I thought. Check out some of the 6500+ posters. Even with that many threads, they manage to write some pretty insightful stuff about golf. See GolfingDad for one, or FourPutt for another. Plus Erik is on me to combine posts using the multi function, which I promised. 1961 is still approaching? Cool. Happy Postday :-))

I retired a year after I joined, so I probably posted a few of my early ones from work too.

Notice my typical post times:

8 AM - 5 PM

and

10 PM - 12 AM

And my post count goes down considerably on weekends.

Wait, what's a capacitor...and what's golf? (Looks at post count/year)

I would imagine that you spend a lot of your time actually playing, rather than on a computer?

Unfortunately, I have not had that luxury the last 15 months.  We live on a beautiful tropical island with no golf course. The cost of golf and transportation to any courses in the Bahamas is prohibitive.   Great Exuma is only 23 miles away, with a Course at the Sandals Emerald Bay resort, but I'd have to charter a boat or flight for ~$300, then pay $250 for the golf.  That's a bit out of reach of my wallet.

One month from now I'm headed home to Colorado for 3 weeks, and 2 of those weeks are going to be a golf marathon.

You should be pretty good out of fairway bunkers, then.

    • Good to have golfers from all over the planet here. See you around! Under the "How To..." drop down menu above, there are all kinds of things there you might want to scan through. How to create an "avatar" How to get "Achievements" (those little icons that show up at the bottom of your posts) How to quote people or other sources How to embed video. Just lots of the details about how things get done here. Since you're interested in instruction, don't miss the "Info...Instructional Content" link in the menu above. Also linked here below. That'll give you a sense of some of the top instruction threads that have been created here in the past. Lastly, you mentioned that there are lots of "tips" here- and you'll quickly find that this site does not promote the idea of hunting the internet for "tips." This site is all about finding the correct priority for fixing a swing (not always easy for us golfers to know) and then applying practice techniques to address that one thing. Then move on to the next priority. I'm not saying that I think you are one of these "tip-hunters", but since you mentioned the word, I just wanted to put it out there that there are lots of testimonies here about the futile search for "tips" on the internet and not improving much as a result of going from one tip to another.  Anyway, welcome! Here's the thread I mentioned above.  
    • Winston Salem only carries balls. The other stores are at least 1.5 hours away.
    • I agree.... my mechanics are to blame much more than my composure, as is the case with the majority of us.  If you read my comment in context of the previous comments, you'll see I wasn't claiming composure>physical at all. 
    • Revealing thread, there are varying "definitions" of what's mental and what's physical. I would have called game planning, green reading and just practicing effectively mental, along with just maintaining composure/managing pressure/stress. What's the essential difference between someone who just mindlessly bashes ball after ball at the range vs someone who practices with purpose? "The way I look at it in golf is that the mental game is a mechanism for fulfilling physical potential. Physical potential being a function of natural ability and effort put in through practice, instruction, conditioning, etc. Physical potential won’t automatically be transferred to the golf course in the form of performance. That is where a strong mental game steps in and allows the body to perform the tasks it has already been trained to do. In other words, the mental game bridges physical potential and physical performance. When faced with consequence on the golf course, the physical motion the body already knows how to perform can be hindered by doubt, fear, and anxiety. Our mind and body know how to physically execute the shot, and the mental game is required to protect that ability by warding off the potential doubt, fear or anxiety."
    • Today I came across to this video and just wanted to share it with you guys Her swing looks great!
