Would anyone be interested in playing a round or two in central Ohio this spring?

I'm thinking one of two things. Either just a casual round with members from TheSandTrap or possibly participate in some charity outing as a team or teams depending on how many people we get?

I'm thinking March or April, whatever works best for everyone.

Possibly, but March? April would be better.

Everything is pretty touch-and-go for me until after April 15, but the closer to Troy the better the chances.

April is fine, maybe either the weekend after The Masters or the following weekend, so like weekends of April 20th or 27th?

Just kinda throwing some dates out there, obviously still have a while before anyone needs to commit to anything.

Late April will not work for me. If it is in late April, I will try to catch the next outing.

I'd like to join the party. I have all kinds of stuff going on in both March and April. So, it will depend a bit on which day(s). But I'm definitely interested.

As I look out the window of my office and see the frozen tundra that is Central Ohio right now it's hard for me to imagine playing in Golf.

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

I can do the 20th, but not the 27th as I will be travelling.

I could probably swing either of those dates.

@Carl3 @ChetlovesMer and anyone else that might join, any preference for what course we play?

There are obviously a lot of good options around central Ohio.

Just for reference, in our outing in 2017 we played the Dennison Golf course in Granville on Saturday and then I believe they also played North Star in Sunbury on Sunday.

I'm relatively new to the area. So I really haven't played a ton of courses around here yet. But I've heard good things about NorthStar, Turnberry and Oakhaven. (I know you guys did NorthStar last year.)

Currently the most rounds I've played have been at Arrowhead, Bent Tree and Chapel Hill. 

To be honest though, I'll play almost anywhere.

No big preferences. I live in Delaware county and Play Delaware Golf club. Bent Tree and Oakhaven a lot. Payed Northstar a couple of years ago and thought it was a real treat. It has been 20 plus years since I played in Granville.

    • Like @Chris BrooksI also get coached by Erik so I mention that as a back drop to this.  I'm directly stealing this from @Chris BrooksImprove driver speed to a 105 average by August 1, 2023.   I will use The SuperSpeed system as I already have it.  Goal is 105 by August 1 2023, just like Mr. Brooks.  I'm turning 52 this year. So I'm much younger than Chris. 😁 Even so, 105 average should be attainable. I average better than 102 right now. I too, will strive to get to 105.  I'm also going to include a stretching program (which will be monitored by my 8 year old daughter) to help me get there. The stretching should also help me as 2022 was the first season I can remember where I've had so many injuries.  Improve strokes gained putting, with a focus on 0–10 foot putts (I did not steal this one from @Chris Brooks, it just so happens I need the same thing.)  Current overall stokes gained are -2.5 putting, –2.56 on 0–10 feet. (I'm actually gaining strokes on 10-30 feet.) when measured vs a 5 HCP. It's actually pretty close to the same vs Scratch.  The goal is getting to even SG vs a 5HCP.  Improve my wedge play.  I would say the one constant in 2022 was that my wedge play was bad.  My stokes gained 50-100 yards against a 5HCP is -1.7 The goal again is to get to even SG vs a 5HCP.   I like what @saevel25 does with his habit goals. I would like to incorporate some of that into these goals. Especially the last 2 goals of improving short putting and improving my wedge play. As of right now I don't have a plan other than to go get a lesson on both of these areas week after next. When I return from that lesson I will update this thread and include my plan and/or my habit goals. 
    • You missed the point. A foot in the air can be tough to pinpoint on the ground. And as Daniel said, you can score with your head, so… And people have two feet. So that's two body parts. 😉 That's not true. It's really not. I've played soccer since I was 3. It's not "too much." Again, you've missed the point… You can score with your head. Or knee. Or chest. Or butt.
    • So I think… There's a chance he plays like a U.S. Senior Open, the Senior PGA, etc. That counts as the Champions Tour. There's no chance he becomes the commissioner. He's an athlete, and though he went to Stanford, he's not a lawyer or a policy guy or whatever. So I think there's very little chance of that. If he was, it'd be as a figurehead of sorts.
    • Give yourself some credit, Matt. You are thinking about this at a deeper level.  You are probably on to something. I suspect you may be able to blend both ideas together. Here's what you made me think about. I'll use this example. Let's say I set the goal to win the tournament I am playing this April. I may shoot the best score of my life each day. I may shoot a score low enough to win the tournament most years. But, somebody else may stand on his head and shoot an even lower score.  I could look at that outcome two ways. I could say "Dang, I didn't achieve my goal." or, "Because I made that goal I played the best tournament of my life."  To your point, if my goals had been: I'm going to practice the weak points in my game for 90 minutes per week. Work on practice habits that will translate to the course. And Do a better job preparing myself for every tournament I play. Then let's say I have the same outcome as above. One might argue that I would have achieved my goals and because of because of achieving my goals I played the best tournament of my life.  So, yes, I guess it could be semantics. I think however, it's something slightly different. For me, it sounds more like making sure the goals I set are actually within my control. For you, it sounds like the goals you are interested in are more life-style goals rather than mile-stone goals.  I think either can work.  Thanks for at least making me think. 👍😁👍
    • I think if he calls that a hole-in-one he is going to be pissing off the golf gods. (Yes, the golf gods are real and they are a bunch of fickle bitches.)
