TST SoCal 2014 Summer Outing - Saturday, August 9th @ Encinitas Ranch

156 posts in this topic

Alright, so we just finished our 6th outing today, and as always, it was a great time. The turn out this time around was a bit weak compared to what we've been able to put together in the past, and for this one, I'd like to see a large group.

We were discussing possible locations for the Summer outing today when we finished up and seem to agree that San Diego would be a good spot as we haven't been down that way yet. One possible course that was mentioned was Encinitas Ranch.

Anyways, let's try to nail down a date and course and we'll get this thing rolling. I'm thinking the end of July, possible the 27th.

I need to redeem myself, July 27 works for me.  Don't really care where or when we play but I think Barrett mentioned Coronado which I think gets an absolute ton of play so it could be a 5+ hr round.

Count me in again. As I've not yet played in San Diego, I'll let other decide on which course to play.

As far as dates, are we talking July or August?

We are in as long as our playing partners can make it.

I'm going to be a late decision (not last minute or anything, but later than now) for the next one.  I'm signed up for two tournaments on back-to-back Sundays in July, so another day-long outing in that time frame will be tough to swing.

I will likely be there, especially if it's in July or August.

If I am available, you can count me in. I have a couple of trips planned for July and August, but I should have some "date certainty" within a few weeks.

One thing I can tell you is that July 27th is out for me. That is my wife's birthday!

That sounds fine at present, but that may change when my summer work trips are scheduled. I'm hoping to have a firm handle on my dates by the end of next week.

How does August 9/10 sound? Any conflicts there?

That would be fine with me.

Encinitas Ranch is a good suggestion. They enforce pace of play there so the round shouldn't take more then 4 hours. Plus it's a nice course and close to the ocean so it won't be too hot.

Edit: I'll be attending this one.

Hey @hacker101 , are you and Justin up for this one?

I signed up Kaili for SCPGA, and will have him do a few tournaments. Other than those, we should have some weekends free for fun golf.

Yep we are up for it, weekends are all Justin will have, he does not take summers off, has to keep the 4.3 GPA.

Also thinking about heading down Sat and stay by the course, what ever one everyone decides?

Okay, we might just go down for the day. Leave early morning and come back that evening.

Cool, we have a foursome!

So its been a while since I have posted here and it looks like the group is still going strong! Im bummed I missed out on a lot of the events you guys have held! took a year off of golf (I know stupid me) so I could finish getting my degree. I hope we have another event soon and everyone is still hacking away!

That seems pretty smart to me!

Come to the next outing, look forward to meeting you, finally. It's been a little over a year and a half since we last corresponded about the first Winter outing.

    • Which page is that rule on?
    • 9/26 - kettle bell & cable column work for core strength and weight shift work. Slow swings with 8i. Hope to play 9 holes this morning, time permitting.
    • It was fun to watch, Rory slowly moving up the leaderboard and with Chappell becoming a bit nervy on the final holes, Rory made it into a playoff. Rory didn't take full advantage of his shots on the par 5, and on the 15th I thought he had lost it. But great putts on the 15th and 16th to win in. What a fantastic golfer to watch, and he can smash the ball out there, almost hit his drive it in the lake on 18.
    • The length of the driving range is limited by houses and a road. So the ball flight is way shorter as with normal balls. So what reads 200 yards on the driving range in reality is much shorter. But I think this does not really matter for now. What I found out is the following. When doing my grip I twist my left wrist extremly to the right. At impact this delofts my clubs a big time. The head is very closed. The iron 7 I was talking about at least becomes an iron 4 loftwise ( i am judging this by eye on comparing to my other clubs). So now numbers maybe begin to make sense. Loftwise we are talking about an iron 4. What happens to the driver is that it even gets a negative loft which explains why balls just go up in the air with a very long tee. The 3 wood on the other hand gets the loft the driver should have. So this makes the longest shots. This is also explains why I had a very hard time hitting my hybrid. This hybrid (4 iron) becomes something like a club with loft 0.  So probably I am twisting my wrist to much ( there is a special term for this hand position which I don't remember). But this gives me 2 advantages. 1) I don't slice the ball with the driver 2) It is easier to hit down on the ball with the iron for me. Before this I had the wrist turned to the left (I think this is called neutral grip) which did not work at all for me. So I think in general this hand position helps a lot when not overdoing it. The V of the left hand index and middle finder should point to the right shoulder as far as I know. My V pointed right of my shoulder. I will tweak this position a bit. I think I am just overdoing it at the moment. I am pretty sure the iron 7 distance will get down when doing this and the driver distance will get up. We will see.
    • How many softball questions get lobbed at each candidate? How many times will Trump say "Believe me!" and "It's like incredible" the word "tremendous" and "Crooked Hillary" How many times Hillary will dance around the e-mail scandal? Will Hillary blow up? Will Hillary challenge Trump to do arithmetic? Or will that be out of bounds? It will be interesting to hear how lowering taxes on the rich and lowering corporate taxes will balance the budget - I've heard that whopper before. Will Trump challenge Hillary on the 2nd amendment? Will Hillary challenge Trump on his pandering to the religious right with the "freedom of speech and religion" proposal to allow discrimination against GLBT people.  Will either of them persuade me to not vote for Gary Johnson?
