Welcome to TST. It's never too late. :beer:

Thanks  for  welcome  to  site  

Hoping  for  lots  of  fun  and  maybe  even  figure  out  a way  to  change  index  lower  than  95.

Need  to  find  time  once  a week  to  chase  that  back down  to  80 somehow .

Good to keep busy after retirement and you can sink a ton of time in golf.

Welcome.

Sometimes  I  think  I I'll  go back  to  work  so  I  can  take  it  easy  

Bought  a  fixer upper  house  and  I'm  no Bob Villa.  I'm  nothing  I f  not  persistent  though, so  if  I  last  I'll  get  r done.  

Any  of you folks  that  happen through  Hattiesburg  MS  wanting  a round ,  I'd  be  glad  to  play .   Not a club member  so I  just  do the  public  tracks  locally . They're  usually  not  too busy  except  weekends.

Thanks  for  welcome  to  TST y'all .

All this Roll Tide stuff is making me uncomfortable.

Do we have a safe word?

Ha!  Man, I'm glad we at least have golf in common.  Who's your college team?  Buckeyes?  If so, I think you guys may be the team to beat for the title.  I've got a curious eye on Washington, too.  There are some seriously good teams in the top 7-8 this year.

Sorry for going off-topic on the OP.  Index95...shoot me a note if you're ever going to be in T-Town and want to play a round.

You both put Roll Tide in there, so it's not entirely off topic.

My team is Ohio State, except when they play my alma matter Bowling Green (that Week One game was terrible). OSU's got a bit of work to do with the passing game and they'll need it against the Badgers tomorrow night. That's as far as I care to look for the time being. 

If either you or @Index95, ever find yourself in the Dayton, OH area, you do the same.

    • An 88 today. Horrible putting. Missed 6 straight par putts from inside 7 feet. I can’t even say well I made a long one that maybe I shouldn’t have. Just plain bad putting. To top it off triple on 18. Ugh. 
    • She deserved at least a sniff of your beer for requiring you to play from the tips and commandeering the cart!  Sounds like a good kid.
    • Had a nice time today golfing with my Granddaughter. We played 9 holes on "her home course" .  She was a bit down in the dumps because she didn't qualify for Monday's varsity tournament. We talked about her best golf days were still a head of her. Freshman envy I guess.  On the first tee she asked "so what are we playing for?" I told her a pitcher of beer, figuring I would destroy her mental prowess right off the bat. "You're on" was her reply. Now my mental game was taking a double take. I've been out of highschool for quite a while, but I'm pretty sure 13 year old, highschool fresh are not into beer yet. She told me she needed a stroke a hole, and that she would be playing from the women's tee, and that I would be playing from the tips.  Now I am really thinking. This time last month this young lady didn't know very much about golf. Yeah, a few long swing lessons with the course pro, and some short game stuff from me, some months ago. Trying to keep my competitive face on, I was.  Oh yeah, that she would be driving the cart......huh? Long story short she netted a 44, while grossing a 53. I think I was conned out of my own hdcp, but still won with a 41.  I was pleasently surprised at her game. I don't what youngsters her age shoot for good scores. I thought something in the 60s would have been decent. I asked her how she missed qualifying for Monday's tournament? She said she scored 51, and needed a 48.  As we were heading off the course, she told me I was going to have to wait on that pitcher of beer. For about 7.5 years. A little personal relief on my part. However, she was up for an ice cream, and soda. My treat.  What can I say. She now owns me.       
    • 86 (+15) on a 5000 yard course. My best here is 84. I really need to learn to control my emotions when I face slow players ahead of me. Today it came on hole 13. Waited for another single (walking as was I) to get out of range. Talked to him at the next tee box to see if he had called the rangers about a 4ball that wasnt letting singles play through. He had another single in front of them. Neither of them wanted to join up which didn't make sense. Had the first 12 holes done in 65 minutes, then it took 80-90 minutes fot the last 6 holes. I know that is normal pace, but it is more than twice as slow as I had been going. I'm glad I kept my head in the game enough to finish the round without killing my score
    • I have the Smart Sole S AND a Callaway 58 C-grind 8 bounce. Yes I know they're both 58. And yes I use both of them. The SS S for deep rough and soft sand, and the Callaway for hard pan, tight lies, and firm sand. All of which exist on the same course. I don't carry a FW so I have room in my bag.
