ha, lol, but to be truthful, i barely reach 5 foot, but i am very strong and team captain on the wrestling team, so, thanks for the info on playing, it will be between golf and baseball though, so i wait...


If you are due for a growth spurt and expect to reach about 6' 220 pounds, pick baseball.

If you expect to be average size, pick golf.

The above assumes that you are looking for a college scholarship.

Oh, and don't play video games. It will waste your life away.

your also right about the scholarship, looking for harvard, the 4.0 gpa school

Hmmm...Not only hit 300 yard drives as a beginning golfer but good at the short game, hit home runs easily, captain of the wrestling team, AND smart enough to get into Harvard.

Good luck. After reading about 1 of your posts, I've already declared you ineligible for Harvard. This post alone...

Someone mixing up your and you're isn't exactly Harvard material...

And they don't give a rats ass about your 4.0...any idiot can get a 4.0 in high school.

The maximum GPA is 4.8 something, if you take all honors and AP classes. I disagree, not ANY idiot can get a 4.0 GPA :-P

Harvard is not looking for only kids with perfect scores, they are looking for the top 2% of intelligence while being well rounded in other aspects of life. (Like hitting a ball 300 yards, captain of the wrestling team, etc.)

You don't really know from one post. I wrestle all the time with my stupid phone that substitutes the word "Ye s " with "Ues" and other such nonsense. :loco:

As far as Harvard is concerned, any idiot can get a 4.0 GPA in High School.

And I looked at the other posts...still convinced.

I agree that not everyone can get into such a prestigious school.

He's only 13, and can still aspire to it.

You never know...

I can aspire to bang Kate Upton.

I'm guessing our odds are similar.

Getting into Harvard is not astronomical. Your aspiration is comical. :-P

Does Harvard have a golf team? If so, I bet the OP could get a free ride, since he hits it 300+ yards and doesn't even play golf.

Men's full ride athletic scholarships for anything other than football or basketball are pretty rare.

Equivalency sports almost always give partials because of the scholarship limitations. Girls have a much better chance since they don't have a football team with 85 scholarships.

I'm saying the odds are similar...slim to none, and slim took a vacation...

    • First, welcome to TST, @maritamm I'm with @billchao, I think a discussion with the manager and a few of the concerned league members would be a good starting point.  She certainly doesn't like the feelings of frustration she's been going through over the cancellations, and probably doesn't realize that she may be a factor in causing them with the way she's running the scheduling.  If you can talk things over, you might come to a better understanding of one another. Separately, I find that I enjoy playing with "other" people.  I play with the same group of friends most weekends, so I'm very open to playing with different members on our Tuesday evening Men's league.  
    • From my personal experience, When you spend that much money on a round of golf, it is nice to experience the entire club, not just the course.  I know during the 4-6 hours of golf you may want some food at the turn, or drinks/apps/meal after. If they cant keep the kitchen clean, doesnt say much for "first class"
    • That's actually a fairly common issue. Hybrids tend to have more offset and they kind of look like woods so people can end up setting up and aiming differently with them than their iron counterparts. Not necessarily. They're designed with a lower CoG to launch the ball higher, they're more forgiving, and they're usually slightly longer than the irons they're meant to replace. Plus if your index is accurate, you're likely not hitting the equivalent irons well enough to really know how far they should be going anyway. Probably. 20g is a significant difference in weight. Whether it would be a good change for you, you'd probably want to see a good clubfitter for. If you have an adjustable hosel on your hybrid you can just buy a shaft to try out, but it would probably cost just as much as a session with a fitter who could tell you definitively what setup works best for you. If you don't have an adjustable hosel, then self-fitting would end up costing a good amount of money if you had to pay someone to re-shaft your clubs.
    • Reason why I was disappointed is he started off one shot back on the day, then it looked like the run was on with holes 9, 10, 11. Then on Hole 12 approach he hooked his approach into the sand, which torpedoed his chances. Then that got into his head a little and he hit another bad shot, bogeying 12. It was disappointing because it killed the run, and pretty much took him out of the competition. By the time 18 rolled around, he was ready to get off the course.  I am pretty sure he'll put it all together one of these majors though. He's been playing pretty well this year, and now has notched strong appearances in both majors and a few other tourneys. Finau will be back! 
    • I think it has a lot to do with your physical characteristics, i.e., are you very tall, short, long arms, short arms, etc. as to whether or not you need a fitting right now. I was fit years ago for a set of Pings and everything was standard but the lie angle, (I was a blue dot, just off the standard black dot), but I didn't see that small adjustment in lie angle making any difference, (I'm 6.0' and I guess standard for everything else). But as said above if you get a free fitting when purchasing a set of clubs why not?  Are you thinking about buying a new set? If you're thinking about altering your current set then you definitely need a fitting.
