That's awesome, congrats.  You might be nervous on the first tee but I'm sure you'll settle down and have a good round.  Make sure you give us plenty of details on how it goes.

Sweet!

Graeme's a cool guy and you'll feel at ease pretty quickly. He's as down to earth as it gets.

Take lots of pictures. For yourself and to share. :)

BTW, there's no more Tavistock Cup.

That is AWESOME!!!! I think Gmac is a cool dude and I'm sure you'll have a blast.

But leave your wallet in the car ;-)

I have to admit, when I saw the thread I expected to see a first time poster as the OP, never to be heard from again. I'm glad it"s a pot by a "real" person.

I just got a call from GolfNow.  I was their top booker in the Orlando area this past year (it helps to book for a small group of nuts just like us) and they asked me if, as a reward, I'd be available to play in a 4-some with Graeme McDowell next Wed at Lake Nona.....one of the two courses that they play the Tavistock Cup at!

I'm an absolute mess.  I'm not gonna be able to swing a club.......!

Just don't puke on his shoes and it's all good. :smartass:

That is pretty cool.

I enjoy playing with some of the better locals at my home course.  Watching how much better their ball striking is is very enjoyable.  I can't imagine how fun it would be to have a close up of all the shots a pro makes.

That is F___ING AWESOME! Good luck making contact with the ball. Take lots of pictures, see if you can get Gmac to join TST while you're at it. LOL

Congrats!

Ring ring...

Would you be available to play in a foursome with GMac?

No, I gotta catch up on Dancing with the Stars.

Are you kidding me?

Time to start following him on Twitter.

    • I'm in a hotel in HK at 1:08am doing practice swings with the chair drill and a metronome just to get my tempo dialed in a bit. I should probably get some sleep for my early flight and factory visit right after lunch, but I can't fall asleep. . .
    • I don't think I've ever in my life been distracted by where someone was standing on the putting green.  I don't even have any distinct memories of knowing where anyone was standing while I was putting. I would probably object to someone waving their hand between my face and ball or peeing on my foot or something.
    • Welcome to TST! Good to hear you have the chance to increase your golf play. As for your clubs... Cobra F6 irons ended up in the Game Improvement category; given how far you hit the ball you should be OK with them. F6 reviews noted the irons have slightly different head designs up and down the line, to meet the demands of long irons vs. short irons. Cobra drivers and long clubs have a good reputation. I especially liked their FlyZ driver from a couple of years back, one of my top three favorites at the time. I play a FlyZ 4 hybrid, it's usually my go-to club for longer approaches and tight tee shots on evil short par 4s. Be aware that the Cobra long clubs have slightly heavier shafts than average; so if you're on the line between one flex and another, probably go with the gentler flex. But, test this out on the launch monitor and find out for sure. Note: Pick up a sand wedge if possible; doesn't have to be new, just decent grooves. As for winter lessons: if you can find an indoor lesson place with a good pro, you can get a jump on next year. Although hitting off of mats is not ideal, it's better than nothing. You can sense if the shot was a little fat on contact. If a golf shop is deserted on a winter's day, sometimes you can rent a half hour on the launch monitor and hit some balls. The shop can give you an idea of when hitting stall dead time will be. Where in Pennsylvania do you live? The head TST guy Erik operates out of Erie.
    • I'm not easily distracted and don't really care what people are doing while I am putting, but if I did I would prefer they be 30' back.  I don't understand people who get distracted by where people are standing, but I respect it and do my best not to let my lack of concern for these things effect them.   I was once standing around 20' or so behind someone who was lining up to a putt.  He took a few practice strokes and then stopped and angrily waved me to move.  (I didn't know him at all).  I don't see how I could have been in his line of site, but I said a simple "I'm sorry" and stayed far away from him any time it was his turn going forward.
    • Virtually nothing distracts me on the course. That gets me in trouble occasion, however. I forget that other people can, and do, get distracted, and I find myself doing somehting I shouldn't be doing while they're hitting (generally on the tee).  That being said, I could not care any less where they stand, as long as it isn't between me and the hole. ;)
