  2. That it's a great event that a almost everyone loves. That local knowledge is important. That you're a perpetual grump?
  3. They've done this before and it's not as low as you might think it would be. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/07/01/AR2007070101221_2.html Good read.
  4. Memo to Patrick Reed: Before you talk the talk, you better walk the walk. If you don't, prepare to make a lot of enemies, which he is doing.
  5. Really only 1 1/2 years ago, when my son started HS. He decided he wanted to be on the HS team and we had about 4 months before try outs. We all know he was not going to make it but we put every foot forward. This year he did make the team and sits about 4th or 5th seat on a 7 man team. But Scouts has been a big part of our life over the last 10 years. With him finishing his eagle next month this has been a good fill in for him and me. But we have had a blast this past 18 months, every weekend we play, a few days off here and there we will make a tee time and skip work and school, range during the week, lessons and a few outing with TST guys. A game that we can play together long after he leaves home. Not having a dad myself I look forward to the days we can get together for a round and a beer. Golf is the greatest game ever!
  6. Well apparently from the way my wife reacted, 4 months is too young!!!! We took my new bundle of joy out last weekend (first warm weekend in what seems like forever) and she did enjoy riding in the golf cart and chewing on the steering wheel. Personally, I can't wait until she is old enough to swing the club. We will probably go out late in the day and just let her beat the ball around the course. One funny note, I have a 20 year old son. He got bite by the golf bug last summer and asked "Dad, why did you never take me golfing when I was a kid." I had to remind him that he was asked EVERY weekend if he wanted to go, but he was always wanting to do something "more fun than golf." It is alot of fun now to play with him.

A lot of people say this: Quote: I like working for more and more good results But they really mean this: Quote: I like working for more and more good results It's just like exercising to lose weight for a lot of people. If you haven't done it in awhile, and are overweight enough, the first week or two will be fantastic. You'll lose ten pounds just like that. You'll be gung ho as heck about working out, but if you're honest with yourself, you're not gung-ho about working out, you're ONLY gung-ho about losing weight. Two weeks later, and all of a sudden you only lose 1 pound that week, or three weeks later you don't lose any ... now how much do you llike working out? Most people are like "eff that, why should I bother if it's not going to work anymore?" And so the cycle continues. It cannot be stressed enough that if you want to improve, you will focus little on your results as you go, and instead trust in your work and your teachers and keep, keep, keep at it.

    • This weekend we had a very slow round. One of the guys in my group has back issues and was putting a swing donut on his driver to try and stay loose while waiting on the tee. Another in the group said it was a rules violation. I looked on my phone but the closest thing I found was he could not take a shot with any kind of training aid, but nothing mentioned using them during down time in a round. Did I miss something or was it ok?
    • Find a cart, grab the roof with both hands, and drop my hips to try and get my thoracic spine to crack and release
    • My routine is the same for both casual rounds and tournaments: 20 minutes on the range and 10 minutes putting. I know from experience that trying to warm up for longer for tournaments than I would any other day just gets me out of my comfort zone, which is huge for tournament play.
    • Hmm....I'm really not sure. I remember when I used to be able to get brand new ProV x-outs for $19.99 which was a steal, but with those you knew they were brand new and were identical to the $48 ones. don't have that much experience with refurbished balls, but I do know that the cover seem to come off pretty quickly on them. The VICE balls that I am using are very durable.
