Nice looking blog...you write a lot...you are a good golfer. I didn't read everything, so forgive me if this is answered, but what are you going to do when you get to scratch?

Looks good, I'll give it a read this weekend. I have played a handful of the courses that you are posting about, and it's always interesting to compare and contrast my experiences to someone elses.

This is the jerk who posts this junk on every second Youtube golf video.

He is a spammer who is not getting near scratch

Only way I can get my site out there Shorty, honestly it doesn't disrupt your life in anyway as you scroll through the comments after watching the video.  You're most certainly the jerk and just a hater....and haters going to hate.  I'm trying to get an audience that can help motivate me and keep me accountable to get to my goal of becoming scratch...which I will do btw.

@oldblu3 - I'm just focused on getting to scratch first and staying consistent, would love to start playing in a lot of tournaments this next year and just see where it takes me from there.  Just taking one step at a time and eventually it will all work out how it was supposed to....thanks for checking out the site!

@Big C - thanks, I hope ya do give it a read, I totally agree with what you're saying about reading about other peoples rounds on the same courses that you play, it is always fun to compare and contrast styles and also see the way they played a certain hole compared to you.  Which ones have you played down here?

    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
    • Wondered how and where achievements came from. I've broken par,  ( handicap is +3) 2 eagles on par 5's so far this year Hole in one 2 years ago on vacation in Arizona at Karsten ASU course.  My first one.
