Florida bound on Saturday, woo hoo!  Getting away form the crappy weather.  Going to be playing lots of golf. 

I haven't shanked a ball in months.

That's it Gator & Spackler!!! I'm gonna buy a 2004 Buick LaSabre and drive it down to Florida, find out where and when you play golf, make sure I get ahead of you in traffic with my Michigan plate

I've got my fingers crossed for all you guys up north. Hopefully an early spring will get these people out of here and back to where they belong.😉

Not very likely. I'm heading down there tomorrow with a bunch of fellow bikers. 😎

I'm playing 9 holes today. Right now is is pure sun, 48* temp, and gentle breeze. I have to see how my new clubs like it on a golf course!

I'm up north and have my fingers crossed that these take-up-the-game -during-the-pandemic people will be out of here by July.  So the course isn't so crowded and slow.  On the other hand they do add money to the golf course coffers so that maintenance can be better and more improvements made.  And keep the courses in business.  With a nod to the Food Thread it's a dual-edged sharp knife.

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny 55 degree day in southern Ohio. I had to choose between spending $6 on a small bucket of balls at the range or $5 to walk 9 at the crappy course near work. I chose to play golf.  So did everyone else.  There were at least 4 groups waiting on the first tee including a 6 some playing a best ball and a 5 some with kids. I asked another single who was behind me if he wanted to join me and then a husband and wife couple also joined us. We had to wait for the group in front of us on every hole, but it was a good day for bad golf and I am glad I played instead of practiced.

    • Note from practice 2021-03-05: Working on palmar flexion as priority piece. Slow rehearsals of transition move and Covid-19 day-4 drill all seem to look fine, with clubface aligned to my spine at A6 (slightly toe down). When I move to full speed, and look at swings on film with Mirrorvision, the face is vertical. This leads to a flip/shove to close the face at impact, or I can hold off the flip (if I think about it hard enough before the swing), and leave the face a bit open and hit what I assume would be a push/cut. I had a mini-realization watching the videos and doing some rehearsals. When I rehearse the palmar flexion move, my forearms arms don't have nearly as much tension as when I am making a full speed swing, and my wrists move freely. I did some rehearsals simulating the tension in my forearms that I feel with full speed swing and tried to palmar flex my wrist and I could barely do it. I did some more rehearsals/Covid-19 day-4 drills, and then hit some balls with full swings with the conscious thought of less forearm tension, and suddenly I could feel the palmar flexion move. It was too dark to get any video, but I'm going to record tomorrow and see if the clubface looks any different at A6 compared to video from today.
    • Lmao, yep.  The range on this man is unbelievable.  
    • You go from this to "Down with the Sickness" and you got a huge gap. 
    • I played this for my elderly mother, and she loved it.  Wasn't quite as impressed with the rest of their lineup.  His voice is absolutely magical, probably the best cover I've heard.
    • Day 12.  I had two five-minute practice sessions during work breaks today.  I was mostly checking that I could swing and hit a ball, given my arm (vaccine in arm yesterday).  Success!  Off a mat, into a net, real balls, 6- and 8-irons.
