Even though they say in a Galaxy far far away, they never claim that it's in our universe. It could be an entire different universe just in that universes galaxy far far away 😛 

A universe where I am the GOAT golfer and Tiger is a 13 Handicap!

I feel like the love for Star Wars rose out of this nostalgia that wasn’t really backed by an overly consistent product. 

I agree.   I watched it this morning and meh....It wasn't as terrible as the critics are making it out to be.   It wasn't great but wasn't terrible either.  I'd give it a par.

Time! 
 

that is what Star Wars is. As in Time will tell how the entire Skywalker Saga will be perceived. Hopefully this ends this part of Star Wars and Disney will move onto different stories and Characters. 
 

In will see Ep9 tonight and revisit in ite entirety once they are all on Disney Plus to stream. 1-9.

Sorry, just got back from ep 9. That is all I could conjure up. It was bad. Too many spoilers to go into just how off the rails poorly done this movie was and the trilogy as a whole.

Up to 86% on RT for audience.

I’m interested in what Siracusa has to say about it. Don’t see anything in his podcasts yet. The Incomparable is the only one I checked though.

If you have seen the 1st 8 episodes you should see the last. I cannot give it my recommendation other than you should see it to decide for yourself and finish the story.

Interesting.  This is the opposite of Last Jedi.  I think with Star Wars, I value the audience response over the critics.

The more you think about it, the more it seems this new trilogy was lost in between my generation and the new generation. They just were not real sure who they were making them for. The outcome of all 3 is apparent.

Trying to do too much is not the worse crime a movie can make, but this movie actually makes the rest of the trilogy worse.

I have been very disappointed with Star Wars series.  The one I liked the best in terms of the story line is the Empire Strikes Back.  The three prequels were horrible.  Jar-Jar Binks? Seriously?  That was nothing but merchandise tie-in character.  The last two were meh. 

I liked Rogue.  It's probably my second most liked Star Wars story. 

Didn't watch Solo at all - not even on iTunes.

I think I will rent the Rise of Skywalker when it comes out on iTunes.

Was it more like Rogue in terms of being able to stand on its own story?

If so, I may have to watch it.

Solo was good. 

Just finished watching Episode IX, and I give it a 15-ft putt for birdie. The first half of the movie felt rushed, but the back end was really good.

I took my kids to see if today and overall feel better about it.   I disagree with some of the undoing they did from 7 and 8, however seeing it a second time allowed me to stop trying to keep up and feel the proper emotional beats.   They did do way too many callbacks, and Easter eggs and the movie is overloaded.   Some characters are just wasted.  They needed more cohesion between Rian Johnson’s movie.   
 

it has its issues, more so than the prior 2 films (7 and 8).

    • Day 319 Didn't get much sleep last night so felt crappy all day, and didn’t have great energy or focus practicing. Did some mirror work on takeaway/backswing, and then hit about 25 balls with a 5-iron. Actually hit the ball surprisingly well considering how tired I felt. 
    • Today’s Session 10-27-20 GOALS: Internal rotation of trail hip Wider, shorter backswing (if goal 1 gets easier) Swings (with 8 iron today)   Goal 1: Trail legs This looks like success to me. Trail knee is facing pretty straight (FO). Goal 2: Wide arms, shorter backswing I was not able to try this too much today. Goal 1 still took too much mental effort. I will be able to work on shortening backswing soon.   I must get the club to go more “around” and less “up”. This path causes shanks for me. Takeaway must be more “low and away” Arm action seems wide enough. Just have to not hinge wrists up so fast. Also my head is not twisting and kinking as bad. I’m not thinking about it, but it is doing better.
    • I meant to post about this round a few days ago, but here it is! We played my birthday round this past weekend at UNC Finley. I briefly thought about the gold tees (~6800 yards), but we all ended up playing the blue tees which were about 6200 yards (yes, even my brother played these tees, even against recommendations from me, my mom and my dad to play the white tees), and I shot a 95 (46-49). I’m fairly happy with my front nine, two doubles and one par with 17 putts. The back nine, however, is where my putting went sour. I had a lot of 50-footers on the huge greens, and I took 23 putts, including a four-putt double on the 11th hole. That was the low point of the round, although I did finish with my only triple bogey of the day. It wasn’t even that hard a hole (straightforward 370-yard par 4).  Although a bit more penal than my home track, I loved this course, particularly the par-5 17th. This one was just over 500 yards from the blue tees, with split fairways on the second shot. The green was what I thought was the most difficult on the course. It was two-tiered, but the top tier was 18 inches above the low tier. The pin was on the lower tier, and my brother found himself on the upper tier. He three-putted, which is actually pretty fair from where he was.  This was a fun golf course, particularly the back nine. My favorite stretch was 15-17. I mentioned 17 above. 15 is a longish par 4 with water all down the left side. The 16th is another par 4, this one about 360 from the blue tees. The tee shot is over a huge area of gorse, making for a heck of a view, not to mention intimidating! The approach is all uphill, at least a club. I also played a twilight nine today. After making triple on the first hole, I played well (with the exception of a double from 90 yards on the sixth hole) on the last eight to shoot 46. My bother came along too. But when we finished the third hole, he hopped over to the sixth tee and played 6-9. He claims to have gone double-birdie-bogey-par after going +4 on the first three, meaning he shot +6 for seven holes. A really solid round from him. So 27 solid holes of golf in the past few days. I’m pretty happy with where my game is right now. I haven’t been scoring great, but I’m hitting the ball well. I need to work out a few bugs with putting (exactly 100 putts in my last 45 holes), but I’m playing well apart from that.
    • Good luck!  No excuses, you know the golf course.
