My bro might actually join me.  We will see.  If it works out it would be a lot of fun to play it.

Pretty excited about playing tomorrow.  Temp should be in the high 40s.   I am going to try out the new grenade driver as well.  Since I don't have any real friends, I am taking an insurance agent we work with.  All someone had to do was speak up and their round was paid for.  Too late! ;-)

Not well.  I have not played in almost a month.  I shot about 90, did not really keep score.  I was trying out a new driver as well which actually did not cost me too many strokes, but I just had some bad bounces and made some mistakes in playing the course for the first time.  Had a few low point issues, but not bad considering the time off of playing.  Had a bunch of pitch shots spin a bit too much off the closely mowed areas around the green.  I was not used to that, and a bunch of short shots would stop when I thought the would roll out.  I could have putted much better had I used aimpoint, but I am not great at it yet and did not want to slow things down.  It is my favorite course I have played thus far.  It is just awesome, I love the waste areas and the design.  Gotta get the kids to bed but if you have more questions, please ask.

Here is the walk from the tee to the green on Blind Man's Bluff.  Some may not know but it is a par 3 with a blind tee shot.

At 40 degrees when we started, we did not have the heart to play from 7200. We decided on the blues at 6750 which was all I could handle in the wind and the cold. I did destroy a couple balls about 250 though. :P

    • For those who don't show clubs in your sig line. I currently carry: 1-3-5 "woods" 2-SW (mid 90's loft angles, unlike stronger modern lofts) Putter I probably don't need the 5W, and I'd like to try a hybrid or two. Some day...  
    • Ok thanks. I feel like I am stuck right between reg and stiff. Hard to tell though as the last time I hit stiff flex in my irons my ball striking wasn't as good or as consistent. I play stiff flex in my driver, 3 wood and hybrids but that's mainly for consistency. I've always had a high ball flight since I started playing golf but lately it's become ridiculously high. Do you guys think moving over to stiff flex would help with lowering the ball flight.

      http://www.gamegolf.com/player/roamin/round/1613273 Beautiful (and hot!) Florida sunshine, four rounds of golf, and $20 buck on skins. Great weekend! Highlights were, first and foremost, the 39 on the front nine this morning (a personal best), and the amazing par, birdie, par finish to the day.
    • Four rounds this weekend, two on Saturday and two on Monday. Shot 89, 90, 84, 91. Today was skins day and luckily, my highlight round came this morning. The front nine was just awesome, shot 39 with six pars and three bogeys. Then got stupid on the 10th after the first bad drive of the day and hit a tree, twice (well, different trees ), and made triple. Three more pars and nothing worse than a single after that, to finish with an 84. Fifty cent skins, plus extra skins for birdies, and low score on front, back, and overall for each round. I was up by 20 skins on the 18th in the second round when we went double or nothing.   I hit my longest drive of the day, at 274 yards, with a perfect angle left to the par 5 green. Then hit a perfect 3W and ended up 6 feet off the front-left edge of the green. Thinned the pitch-shot a little and it rolled about ~15 feet passed the hole...two-putt for par. My buddy had hit a tree with his 3W (bad angle off the tee), and finished with a double. $20 bucks! Cha-ching! What a great weekend! 
    • Austin had a great swing but other than the "macro" moves I don't see many similarities to DJ. - Austin had a slightly weak or neutral grip, DJ uses a strong one
      - Austin raised his left heel on the backswing 
      - DJ has a much more flexed lead wrist on the backswing and downswing
      - Austin goes into right pelvic tilt and with more axis tilt on the downswing where DJ maintains left pelvic tilt longer
      - DJ is more rotational while Austin had more "leg drive".
