Congratulations.  Nice thing about golf is there are no style points, just results.  As the years go by, feel free to embellish upon the accomplishment!  ;-)

Thanks!

I didn't realize there were awards for that kind of stuff.

I went to the thread, do I just send a message to iacas?

Call it a hole in one.  That sounds better than an eagle, at least to me.

@70sSanO, Does "SanO" mean San Onofre?  If so I spent time there in the 60's and early 70's when it was a surf club.  First wave I ever stood up on was there, I was 7.

It sure does, but I was not fortunate to surf there (no club member with access) before Nixon granted public access and Reagan made it a California State Beach.  I know the club hated that.  I learned to surf at Bolsa Chica (Tin Can Beach) on a 9'6" longboard, but SanO was my favorite spot.  When short boards took over the 70's I would often scramble down trails and have the place all to myself... literally.

Then in the 2000's our sons and I would hit the surf beach (Old Man's) at least a couple times a week.  Was part of the non-list club for a number of years.  Kids surfed in the club contests and usually did fairly well.

SanO is a real soft spot for me and I plan to get down there during the week and catch a few waves when I retire.  Not quite ready for fighting the weekend crowds.  Old guys really don't rule in a SoCal lineup, even at Old Man's.

    • The only problem I found on bending clubs are the ones that have little plastic/metal inserts on the back side of the clubs.  Because of these inserts, some local proshops, and/or club builders won't touch them for fear of breaking/cracking/popping those inserts. The owner, in need of an adjustment, may be required to send their clubs back to manufacturer. 
    • Day 478 It arrived today. What arrived was my new driver: a Ping 410 Plus with Alta CB Red Soft Regular Shaft. As I am still getting used to the new toy, I started with all the adjustable parts set to the most neutral settings.  Soon I adjusted to help with a slice. All after that change were straight where I was aiming.  I seemed to have picked up 10 MPH in terms of ball speed.  I need to work now on the results not being so high. I intended to hit only 20-25 balls.  I ended up hitting 45 as this club made driving fun.  It was easy to hit towards  various target greens.  What I need to adjust after a few more practice section I the launch angle to lower the fact that wit my older drive I tend to hit high spin. I rarely, if ever, fall in love with a club so quickly, but even with days of getting used to it ahead, as I said in my review on the Ping web site, it was love at first whack.
    • Was wondering if anyone has played here. Playing the ledgends course. 
    • Totally agree with keeping them standard length to start with. Can always grip down when they are long, but can't go the opposite way. Bending Pings is difficult at best and don't assume you will be able to have it done easily. May have to send back to Ping if you want them bent after the fact but they can do it.
    • Day 28 What a GREAT day!  This is why everyone should have a golf coach! So, about 5 weeks ago I was playing great. Then suddenly I completely lost it. Then I got hurt (non-golf related, but screwed up my game). When I came back from my injury I was pretty close to hopeless.  I got with my golf coach and he and I worked through what all had changed in my swing. It turns out I had made a minor adjustment without realizing it. Then I made an adjustment to counter act that adjustment, then another and another and pretty soon my swing was nothing like what my swing used to be like.  My coach brought up the video of my swing when it was good. We compared it to where I found myself after … I'll call it my melt down. Anyway, my coach was able to quickly get me back where I was before. Suddenly I was striping the ball down the middle again. Yay!  Anyhow, back to today's practice. I hit trajectory drills with the driver. I'd hit a high fade, then hit an 8-iron shot. Next I'd hit a low draw, then hit a hybrid. After that I'd hit a high trajectory drive, then hit a 4-irion. Basically I'd work through the 9 shots with the driver: high, medium and low, Draw, straight and fade combinations. But after each driver shot, I'd hit a different club from my bag, picking the club pretty much at random. I didn't want to hit any club more than one time in a row.  In the end I hit the ball so well on the range I had to run out and play 9 holes. My game has returned, I went 3 over for 9. I hit the ball so much better than I'd been hitting it recently. It felt great.  That's the reason everyone should have a golf coach.
