Sounds like my buddy before I convinced him otherwise. I had come to the realization that I should finally move up to the gold tees. My buddy refused to believe it, insisting he was still pumping drives out there 260-270. So, I'd let him tee off from the whites, I'd tee of from the golds and outdrive him! I should have just got even with him.
The moment of truth finally came on a, for him, 400 yard par 4. He hit his usual drive, and I asked him how for he thought he hit it. He said he caught it decent, so about 260. When we got to his ball he checked his Garmin watch and had 180 in! I asked him if he hit that drive 260 why did he have 180 in and not 140? Did the course make a 40 yard mistake in measuring the hole, or is the GPS off. Being a hardhead he actually insisted that his GPS must be off, so he hit his 140 club, nailed it and, of course, wound of 40 yards short!
I think that's when the realization finally set in!
25 yards wide all day. I have a much better chance hitting the club the correct distance but 10 yds left/right of my target than I do landing it within a 5 yard left/right gap from 170 yds.
Over the course of an entire season I probably only hit a couple of shots from a full 7 iron distance that land precisely within a 5 yd gap of my intended target. Heck even PGA tour players aren't all that accurate with a full 7 iron
Hell, you don't really need that to not go shopping on Black Friday, but I do appreciate the excuse! I and my buddies have played the day after Thanksgiving, the day after Christmas, the day after New Years Day, and any other day it got warm enough to play.I remember one Winter where it was quite cold, but didn't really snow very much. During the "January Thaw", as we call it, we had a day get up in the upper 50's. We hit an area course that was open that has a lot of lakes on it. They were all frozen over, so we could pretty much disregard them.
GolfPass is completely different than Golf Channel. Thanks for the clarification. I made a bad assumption that with just the Golf Channel membership that Swing Expedition was available. It looks like it's only available as an additional membership to GolfPass.
