Went to see Dune today.
As a fan of the original book series, I liked this movie a lot. I thought they kept the same pacing, and the important parts from the book. There was a few specific details that were lost, and rushed. I understand the direction they took, being this has to be a 2.5 hour movie that covers the first half of the first book (if I remember correctly). I like the grand scale of the movie, and how they introduced all the major players in the story and did some good world building. Being that, the movie for some could drag a bit. It is not the fast pacing style of movie you tend to see today. For me, I give it a tap in Birdie. I could totally understand some people who might not like this movie at all. Dune is one of my favorite books of all time. I just think the story and characters are really good. I felt like they got a great cast for the movie. Modern special effects really help the world building.
Actually not today but last week but my first ever competition. I was good off the tee, not so good off the deck. Putted ok (for me) and played relatively smart. Shot big numbers overall but net 33 points on stableford and finished second in my class. Got paired up with the club champion (plays off +2) and another low handicapper (4) so I was super nervous 😬 but they were so encouraging and patient that I actually managed to relax and play better stuff on the back nine. Really super positive experience. Tommorow I play in the annual club closing tournament: a 1-3 club (depending on handicap… I get 3) team scramble over a cross country course (in vintage golf dress 🎩). Not sure what to put in my bag for this one … I an thinking 4 hybrid (24 degrees), pw and putter but open to advice….
Want to sell a like brand new Ping G425 Max 3 wood (14.5 deg). Seem limited use and the wear reflects that. One tiny scratch on the bottom of the club but other wise it is mint. I have a standard Ping headcover and a custom Ping leather headcover I will include with it. It will have the captured screw with it. I can include a Ping wrench if you need it. No trades please.
Asking $215 shipped. PM if interested
