87, a decent score.   Started out poorly with two triples but recovered with lots of pars the rest of the way.   Perseverance!

100 (71/135). Not a good score, and didn’t really hit the ball consistently well all day. But I fought hard and actually had a decent score going until the last 4 holes. Fell apart.

An 87 today.  That's 5 straight rounds in 80s which I think may be my longest such streak.   This is the last round I will play in 2018 and I finished the year playing my best golf ever.  Nine years of playing golf and I can't believe I am still improving.   Am looking forward to my next round in 2019.  Happy new year to you all!

Shot 92 today (72 nett) for even my handicap and beat my 3 single hdcp friends who all shots 5+ over their daily hdcp :). The 6 hdcp friend who hasn't golfed in 8 months played 22 strokes over (he got 2-3 birdies, and eagle putts as expected, but he's also got a few double pars :D)

Funny day today. Youngest Granddaughter wanted to go "hang with G-Pa" at the golf course. 

So we played 9 nine holes. The big deal for her was I let her drive the cart. 

To be honest, I have no idea what my (ours')  scores were. I know I had 6 pars, and no 6s. G-Daughter did make a long 15' foot putt, which made her day. Cost me a trip to Mc D's for ice cream.

Still, driving the cart was her happy program for the day. 14 years old and in charge......lol

lIt's the Holliday Season. G-Kids rule.

Saturday's round shot an 82 (41-41). Yesterday shot an 80 (42-38). Heading for the course in about an hour. We'll see what I can shoot on Christmas Day.

Merry Christmas to everyone.

Saturday had a 96 on my home par 67.  Three pars, four bogeys.  Best part was I hit 7 of 11 fairways, which, as I have been struggling with a severe slice was a victory,  I think I have it figured out finally.  35 total putts, 20 on front(2 three putts, not good) 15 on the back. Looking forward to lowering my handicap in 2019.  The goal is to get to 18.

73 today. 2 birdies, 14 pars, a bogey and a double. Just kept saying to myself, fairways and greens, fairways and greens. Smart golf for a change.

66 today, one of those rare days where golf felt easy. Was never in any real danger of making a bogey, ball was basically going where I was aiming it and distance control was great. Left a few birdie putts short but putting was solid, made all the 3-6 footers I "should" make.

Last round of 2018 today.  December has been milder than usual with the temperature today hitting 55 degrees.

Shot 76, which looks better than it really was (66.9/120).  The course is very short.  Conditions in December are always a bit rough.  Really soggy fairways and furry greens but it was a blast.  I wanted to play all three nines but I was a touch fatigued from walking yesterday and today and the other nine was packed with players getting a last round in, too.

    • Another idea is to make your own shaft flex board. Maltby sell one for $180. I once made one for free using a scrap of plywood, and some 2", 1/4" dowell material. Hung it on my garage wall.  I marked known  clubs flexes on the board as reference points, using a consistent weight. The board also gave me other info besides flex.  It was crude looking, but did the job.  It mattered little what the manufacturer's rating on the shaft was, which was usually different from each company. What ever my flex board showed me, was what the actual flex was when compared to the known flexes I used.   Maltby probably has a picture of his flex board on his website. Probably other sites have picts available too. With a little self ingenuity, a person can study the picture, and build their own. It's pretty easy. 
    • I thought about this a while, and then had an epiphany last night.  Without a perfect test, the answer is almost definitely no. It's a fairly simple statistical calculation called Bayes' Theorem. The end result is that you'll end up preventing more people from driving when they aren't drunk than preventing drunk drivers. I'm going to plug in numbers, but since I'm (likely correctly!) assuming drunk driving is a rare event, the numbers don't really matter that much. I'm also going to assume the test is extremely accurate. Let's say that in 1/10,000 car trips, the driver is too drunk to legally drive. This is probably an underestimation by a factor of 100, if not more, if you think about how many car trips there are in a day. Let's assume that the when the test is positive, the driver is drunk 99.9% of the time. And then assume that when the test is negative, the driver is sober 99.9% of the time (in other words, if the test is negative, the driver is drunk 0.1% of the time). We can use this to plug in probabilities for each event. Probability that a driver is drunk: .0001 Probability that a driver is sober: .9999 Probability that a drunk driver gets a positive test: .999 Probability that a drunk driver gets a negative test: .001 Probability that a sober driver gets a positive test: .001 Probability that a sober driver gets a negative test: .999 Bayes' Theorem applies here. It says: The probability that someone is drunk driver given a positive test is equal to the probability of a drunk driver gets a positive test times the probability of a drunk driver; that divided by the following: the probability of a drunk getting a positive test times probability of a drunk driver plus the probability of sober driver getting a positive test times the probability of a sober driver. In mathematic terms (DD=drunk driver; SD = sober driver; + = positive test): P(DD | +) = (P(+ | DD)*P(DD))/((P+ | DD)*P(DD)+P(+ | SD)*P(SD)) Plug in the numbers: P(DD | +) = ((.999)*(.0001))/((.999)*(.0001)+(.001)*(.9999)) P(DD | +) = .0908 In other words, the probability of a drunk driver given a positive test is only 9%. Meaning that out of a 100 people that test positive under this test, 91 of them would actually be sober. Because the test is imperfect and drunk driving is rare, it's going to impact more sober drivers than drunk drivers. Even if the test is 99.99% accurate and as a false positive rate of 0.01%, the probability of a drunk driver given a positive test is only 50%. Note that I'm assuming that 1/10,000 car trips is one by a drunk driver. If you assume 1/100,000 car trips are by a drunk driver, the probability of a drunk driver given a positive test is 0.9%. (You can also use this calculate to find out the odds that a drunk driver will have a negative test, but I have other stuff to do now...) So, without a nearly perfect test, it's a bad idea for the entire population. If drunk drivers were more frequent, then it would make more sense. Hence, it makes sense for someone who is more likely to drive drunk, and why the current policy probably makes sense. 
    • Hey Ben, good to see you’re still around!   I remember those irons. They’re beautiful! Sorry, I can’t help with the driver though…
    • Sometimes this is called a Telehandler, and sometimes its called a Rough Terrain Fork Lift. It all depends on where you live. 
    • Dragging the handle without the correct wrist movements to go with it can lead to an open clubface at impact. But without a video it's hard to determine the underlying cause of your problem.
