Thanks Dave, unfortunately I won't be able to make it out this year. Hope you guys have a great time!

Thanks, Mike, we'll do our best.  We'll also miss seeing you.

@DaveP043 ... you guys taking this year off I'm guessing?  The irony for me is because if covid my work schedule is so flexible, I'd probably be able to sneak out there a couple times during the week lol!

At the moment, we're holding off on coming to Palm Springs.  Tom, our friend with the house there, has delayed his departure for a few weeks.  Rick and Lisa are driving across country, and don't plan to arrive there until February.  We're kind of holding tight to see how things work out.  We'll miss is, but there's always next year.

I almost forgot to revive this old thread.  Mary Anne and I leave in two days for 2 weeks in Palm Springs/La Quinta.  Yes, two entire weeks.  If any of y'all care to join us, please let me know.  Its a little different this year, we have only 4 golfers in our group, but Tom may have made multiple times to include some of his local friends there.

Here's hoping you can hit out of some of Patrick Cantlay's divots...

There are two potential problems with that.  First, we're almost certainly not playing any of those same courses.  Second, his divots are generally in the fairways.

Hey, we're starting off even for the year!  She only beat me 3-up last year, and I bet we played 40 matches against one another.

I almost went searching for this thread the other day Dave ... cuz in most years past I believe you were always here for the AmEx week?

My schedule is wacky right now, and I really haven't golfed much at all, but I will stay tuned for your schedule to see if I can work something out.

Have fun!!

Thank you, my friend, we'll do our best.  The way it looks now, Tom will be doing tax returns a couple days a week, so we'll only have 3 players on those days.  It looks like we'll have an opening on Wednesday, 2/2, at Eagle Falls, 8:12 AM, and on Thursday, course TBD.  Apparently ites getting tougher to get times on the more desirable courses, as compared to previous years.  I'll just be happy to have a golf club in my hands, instead of a snow shovel.

    • Initially turning that foot in helped. But now my body is used to it and I’m back to squatting, EE’ing, leaning, etc. So, I’m working to get rid of the squat by throwing my hips “left” in transition (instead left and down) and have my left foot less outward pointing. The foot position is helping to prevent the late lean and extend my left leg sooner. The initial lean helps get my knees moving left instead of squatting out.  It’s small but you can see the bottom picture has less squat and more body turn. It’s not quite where I’d like to see it, but it’s a start.  I really need to grind into my swing’s bad habits. I’m really annoyed at my inconsistency. 
    • Thanks for the replies. I took it back to the shop and they agreed they did not trim the tips as they should have. They attempted to reshaft it using a new shaft. Unfortunately, this time they actually trimmed too much off the tip. The tip section on the 9iron is now shorter than my pitching wedge. Looks like the trimmed about 1.5 inches too much.   Sucks b/c you would think a golf shop would be able to do the job properly....
    • I found this video interesting from the standpoint of how they approach just playing the fade from game management. Even if they hit, what you would call a slice, they rather see that happen than have anything go left.  Also, it is interesting that they both bow their wrist at the top, but both play a fade. I'd think that most would say they would draw or hook the ball with the clubface shut at the top.  In terms of what they think about for the shot, it is hitting a start line because they know it is going to curve from right to left. I wonder how many amateurs think about starting the ball on a line. 
    • 7:49am 10th Tee -  Tyrrell Hatton, Bryson DeChambeau, Max Homa. Nice to see the biggest hitter on the USPGA tour, back. Good luck Bryson.  
    • Yes, you can move clubs into the "unassigned" bin, but it won't let you delete a club that has been used, so everything added to the "my bag" stays there. The system used to let you delete a club but would give a disclaimer message saying something like deleting this club will also delete all of the data associated with it. What is annoying about this is that in post-round editing, all of the clubs, assigned or not come up in editor. So if a shot was registered with the wrong club, it's not intuitive to pick from the list which is color coded rather than providing a description. This is rare - it would happen in cases where you put a new club in the bag but didn't update the "my bag" section so shots were registered on the old club. Or possibly a scenario where you took some practice swings with a 8-iron and it registered a shot, but then you actually hit the shot with a 9-iron. For example, below, this is what I see if I wanted to change the driver I used for this tee shot:
