I love the grind. I learned to love it from Mr. O’Grady. We would show up at sunrise and leave at sunset every single day of a MORAD school. Wish he’d let me go to another one.
I do a 90 minute to 2 hour session everyday. 30 minutes mechanics. 30 minutes measured practice hitting to targets and measuring proximity… Then 30 - 60 minutes either on mechanics again or playing a simulated round.
Use official handicaps. Make everyone who plays sign up for a handicap. Using handicaps based on tournament play is better but it takes a long time for a player to have a reasonable number of scores. Yes, the new handicap system starts at three scores but I think the resulting number has low credibility. Also, it takes a bit of work to calculate the “C” handicap.
If you have 40 players, make two flights. Make the split wherever it needs to be to get equal flights. If there is a large spread in the high and low index in each flight, consider using a percentage of the handicap (90% is recommended).
Your Club Champion should be the player with the lowest gross average over the season with a minimum number of events required (5?). You can also award “Net Player of the Year” to the member who wins the most gift certificates.
Been on the diet since April 2019. I take it to prevent cluster headaches, which I've suffered from since age 13. The keto diet somehow stops neurological issues like epilepsy and cluster headaches for some reason. They don't really know for sure how. I suspect it has something to do with an inflammation reduction, at least in regards to the cluster headaches.
There are also some possible benefits for alcoholism, or alcohol use disorder as it's called now.
The Ketogenic Diet May Play a Role in Treating Alcoholism
This dietary intervention may help with detox and cravings.
The diet's not for everybody though, agreed there. I think a lot of people do great on carbs. I however definitely don't unfortunately. Keto helps me a lot.
It is interesting that according to the poll, more members carry a 4 or 5 iron than a 9 iron. I suspect some responders may have misunderstood the question and listed their longest iron rather than all the irons they carry. Or maybe the info is spot on.
