I'll do a quick :offtopic:In my area, we've had flurries the last week with temperatures at night around freezing and highs during day of 40-43 and raining or drizzling constantly.  So not ideal golfing weather, but we are setting up an AboutGolf simulator in our shop.  That'll be good to go in a week or so and I'll start my practicing! :)  This winter has sucked around here though.

Almost 65 years in the making, never before released to the public ... let me be the first to introduce the current front runner for the 2018 Academy Award for "Documentary (Short Subject)":     

Wish I had a little more time. I definitely have a better appreciation for all the film makers out there. My lighting sucks...lol. Thank you to @NCGolfer for being the first one to post. Sho

At long last, I've completed my vlog Just to be a little different, I added voice-over in my best announcer voice.  And to consolidate, I've quoted my previous posts, I think its all to

I may have to do a quick tour of my place during my video. I think the tour will only add about 30 seconds to the video, and only if I go really in-depth. We'll see. I'm considering doing the interview questions this evening and following that up with the vlog later.

I prefer them to just be in the same video (or at least the same post), FWIW. Please don't just post one and then 30 posts later, the other part. Your application isn't in until they're both ready anyway.

Alright, then I'll wait.

Just to throw it out there...through Feb 28th I've played 16 rounds in 2017. Its 55* and sunny the next 4 days. Will probably add 3 more rounds to that total.

We're a third way through March without a single application :-(

I'm hoping to get mine in this month. I should get the interview portion filmed soon. Getting the vlog might be tough by the end of the month, but I will try.

That was very entertaining!  My favorite parts were the explanation of the "white stuff" and moving the ball out of the divot.  You seem like someone that would be fun to play a round of golf with, good luck!

@bkuehn1952, great application! Played Fox Hills once way back in 2005, when I used to live there. I visit Plymouth once every few months - our corporate sales office off of Sheldon Rd. Hope to meet you someday..:-)

Thanks.  Absolutely let me know if you visit the home office.  There are lots of nice courses in the area and it will be my treat. As you can see, Michigan has golf 12 months a year (ha ha ha!).  And who knows, maybe we will be teammates come October!

Man, oh, man! That was hilarious, the divot kick, the "white stuff", the "relieving in the trees", the celebration (putter drop!).  You are a hoot.  And thanks for saying you want to be my teammate. I now have to do something about applying, lol. We wouldn't be on the same team as I am in California and support the red team all the way. But, it would be fun to meet you Brian.

Outstanding effort, and great dedication to go out on the course in the cold weather.  One reminder, post your sizes for the stuff, just to make the entry complete.  I'm sitting here in Virginia tonight, waiting for our yearly "blizzard" to start.  They're talking as much as a foot of snow, which will paralyze the area for a few days, but we still might get some golf in on the weekend.

Yes, please. Post them separately so I can merge the two posts, @bkuehn1952.

OT, but I worked in Richmond for nearly two years, and about 2" of snow would send everyone into a panic...they'd send people home from work for two days.  It was crazy.

@bkuehn1952 - great stuff!  Hilarious.

    • Welcome to TST.   Nice introduction.   We're glad you've joined.  
    • 7th hole hcp 1 (450 yard par 4 playing level) hit my driver about 320 leaving myself 130 in. High draw over the trees and back to the fairway where it widens. Missed the small green just left and nearly chipped it in for birdie. Then proceeded to magnificently miss the comeback putt for par.

    • I honestly have no clue what my first scoring round was, given I was around 12 and that was over 30 years ago. Watching your swing video, for someone who has only played their fourth round, you either have a natural athletic aptitude or have been practicing a lot before going out on the course. I understand the double par limit, especially if you are playing with others, but over time you will need to play and count every shot.  I find it really focuses my game to do so.
