    • I've strongly considered not carrying the driver, but I also do not want to conceded that it has beaten me.  My literal first experience on the course was a company trip that included a round of golf.  After several drives that were worm burners at best, my co-worker suggested I either hit from his tee shots or use a 3w.  I chose the latter, building confidence in making a good swing.  Fast forward to almost 12 years later (2018) and I am joining the church's men's group golf outings with a real wood driver (old Spalding) and ancient irons.  I have a blast hitting the driver and do reasonably well.  Get the bug and purchase a few used clubs to make a more current set of clubs.  Now I have a TM SLDR C 9.5* driver.  On good swings it is rocket straight to slight fade.  Bad swings used to be hard right slices, but now they are strong slices that are still playable from the far rough. I spend a lot of time with the foam practice balls and foot spray in the back yard. The focus is to evaluate/correlate the impact imprint and ball flight. Making small adjustments has proven to be most beneficial as I approach the tee box now more confident that the ball will be in the fairway and not in the woods, lake or whatever hazard is on the right.  I like the driver, I like to see it rocket off and there is a great sense of accomplishment when it lands and rolls down the fairway. This has come by working on where I'm hitting the ball on the clubface and then correlating that strike with the ball path and what I need to make adjustments to where I would like it to go.  
    • Shot 90.  46 on front and 44 on back. Left a few strokes on the front...
    • My brother hit me with the question last week, Dak or Josh Allen. I recommended Dak on concern with the Ravens D that Allen was going to face, but I felt really sick watching the Cowboys sputter Thursday night.  Happily, Dak still out-pointed Allen. So I turned out ok on that account.  
    • No....I just made the claim like everyone else...a hunch, a feeling, an examination of how close these teams are...the fact that Clemson has been there, their players and coaches have been there.  Just wait til the end and we will see.  Who knows what factors could pop up.  What if one of the teams loses their QB early in the first game on the 28th,   Don’ get your panties in a wad, this is all conjecture, back and forth banter, and poking and provoking.
