Looks like a solid Category 4 Hurricane when it hits the coast.

This is a scary storm. I was in FL during Matthew, which was not only weaker but also traveled north off the coast, and I remember the damage caused by that. Lots of down trees, power outages, road blockages, flooding, etc.

Irma is both stronger and projected to make a direct hit. Stay safe, everyone.

Yeah, Matthew was a baby.  Never even lost power, and played golf 2 days later.

This one worries me a bit...

I've seen photos of St John, USVI, an island I am very familiar with. They didn't get a direct hit but are devastated. This storm is extremely dangerous. Stay safe. Houses and cars can be replaced, lives cannot.

Here's hoping the impact remaining is less than they're projecting. Stay safe.

To all impacted: drop a note here when things get calm again to let us know how you and your neighborhoods fared.

Til then, you'll all be in our thoughts and prayers as you tend to your family, friends, neighbors, and belongings. Good luck!

Yeah. It's looking pretty ugly. I flew back down from Ohio Thursday to secure the house. I've prepped as much as I can. Stay safe everyone!

Stock up on non-perishable food items my ass...

Seared sea scallops (those 3 weigh in at over 1/2 lb), nicely rare ribeye with butter poached sweet peppers, salad, and and a nice Napa Cab.  :-)

Exactly!  We have plenty of non perishables, but those are for after if we don't have power.  Right now we are eating well and enjoying a little wine.  If SHTF I still have two NY Strips and a filet from Allen Brothers to cook up on the charcoal grill (among other things).  Good luck out your way.

Ok, Irma has turned toward you from what I see. Irma wants some of that ribeye. She also doesn't like your taunting apparently.

Let's hope she loses steam as she moves inland.

    • 40-60 year old golfers, do I have a project for you! I was once-upon-a-time gifted a set of Founders Club forged blades, 2-PW. If I told you they had minimal wear, that would be an understatement. I hit two shots with the 2iron just because I had two. Otherwise, 7i to PW has maybe five shots of wear on the face. But that's besides the point.  When I was a 15 year old I had my first set of Ping Eye 2 and for.the life of me remember having Langert woods. Does anyone have a lead on a Langert Driver and 3 Wood? Particularly with a shaft I can only remember as being labeled the "Brush Stroke" shaft...  I could be totally wrong being that I do remember have a Founders Club driver back on those days  However I'm 95% certain it was a Langert head, with the "paint stroke" graphics on the shaft. If you happen to know of this club and live in the LA area, I'd love to buy it off you, after which I'll invite you to play at the club where I work and kick you butt with some 1990s ancient club technology...   Thank you.    Ben. 
    • Your hands move out and up rather than tracing inward. That’s all. A little of that is fine. You’re bordering on a bit too much IMO.  As I noted it does help you loop it back to the inside on the downswing.
    • As a 20 I agree.  I'm 66 and still want to lower that number, bought the book and this winter (starting next week) am going to practice and get a few more yards on my full swing shots. My short game and putting are not going to get much better or better enough to give me 5 strokes. Maybe I have drunk the cool-aid , but I have seen that GIR is a way better place to lower my score. Th alternative is ok-play for GIR +1-and live with 91-95. Its closer to par than 102  
    • Unless they are bringing in hazards, OB, that is the proper strategy to achieve that goal. Being as close to the hole as possible on each shot without penalty will help greatly in breaking 90.    No offense but I think ‘ realistic’ could be replaced with ‘ easier.’ If you think you have the ability to improve your distance then that is the best way to start breaking 90 unless you have a glaring weakness with your short game. Which doesn’t appear to be the your case if you struggle to reach most par fours in regulation due to distance.
    • vote was yes. My guess is that the non alcoholics all voted no. Drunk driving laws are like locks...they work for honest folks. If I drink, I will probably drink and drive...so I have stopped drinking. Once I black out all bets are off.
