    • Okay so Golf Digest published the 15 signs you watch too much golf on TV. I giggled just a bit because I may be guilty of one or two of these. I thought I'd post them here and maybe if you all have additional signs you watch too much golf on TV you could add them. For example, my sister has literally taken the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of Masters Week off work for a Staycation.  Anyhow, for your reading pleasure. Here are Golf Digest's 15 Signs You Watch Too Much Golf On TV. 1)      You greet everyone by saying, “Hello, friends.” Even if they aren’t your actual friends. Even if it’s just one friend. 2)      You can still rattle off every location where Golf Channel’s “Big Break” has ever been filmed. 3)      You often start whispering like Roger Maltbie for no reason. 4)      You know the difference between “Victory Red,” “Gym Red” and every other shade of Tiger Woods Sunday red. 5)      You get all your Christmas gift ideas from golf informercials. 6)      You have trained yourself to plan bathroom breaks around those obligatory CEO interviews. 7)      Your DVR is full of European Tour reruns. 😎      You often forget to shower during weeks of major championships. 9)      You plan your vacations to fall during weaker-field events. 10)   When you check into a hotel, your first question is, “What channel is the Golf Channel?” 11)   You frequently find yourself wondering, “What would Sir Nick think?” about major life decisions. 12)   You have nightmares about bad weather—affecting that week’s PGA Tour event. 13)   You are better at remembering the names of tour caddies than your in-laws. 14)   You have trouble reading stop signs, but you can tell immediately what iron a player pulls from his bag. 15)   You miss Johnny Miller in the booth more than you miss your own parents.
    • I don't know if it is a dumb injury but I have had three lower back surgeries the last of which was very successful. I've been playing for a few years with little to no pain as long as I ride for the 18. Anyway the other day I was playing, went to hit my 3W and topped the ball HARD! It sent a shock wave straight into my back and doubled me over, couldn't straighten up for a while. Have had lower back stiffness and some pain ever since. If it doesn't go away soon it is off to see a doctor. All because I topped a ball, go figure.
    • Great to play with friends ever week. I'm in a league with about 50 men and women and we play every Tuesday. All play about the same, some a little better some not so good, but we're there to have fun. We also kick in money each week, besides greens fees, a little goes to some prize money, but the most goes to help a homeless shelter and a home for battered women.  We play a best ball scramble so the game moves along quickly and we don't hold anyone up, plus we all want to get to the 19th hole. Given we're all older folks we play it forward, again to speed up the game. Bottom line, we're all into the game and play by the rules that we have set up. It is great fun and we all look forward to the next Tuesday. 
    • I'm sure that many name-brand "designer" courses today just use distinctive elements preferred by the named designer. The named designer might just show up for a photo op one day on the course. There is a Gary Player course in Connecticut (Lyman Orchards) that has photos of Gary putting on one of the greens. Truth is, he just flew in by helicopter one day, got out, and hit a mid iron to the green, putted out and left for a tournament in Westchester. Probably had little or nothing to do with the actual planning and design of the course. But I do think Ross was more of a "hands on" guy.
