  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.

    • Your ‘cognitive skills’ go awry because of poor shots. Very few players ‘real problem’ is due to mental issues. It’s poor mechanics. 
    • Day 28 Before going on a walk with my family, I took the weighted club out in the front yard and swung for a few minutes.  Then, I grabbed an old 7 iron that I carry on walks (to deal with snakes... and practice my grip) and took some full swings at the nutsedge that our lawn service doesn't seem able to get rid of, all the while repeating my "back-to-target... face-the-target" (BTTFTT) swing thought.  On the walk, I worked on my grip and rolling my hands through the impact area. Once we got home, I went out back with an 8 iron and ripped shots into my net.  As I did, I kept repeating BTTFTT, and I made really good contact with all but a few.  Furthermore, the few that I made less that perfect contact with were a little thin, so they would have been decent shots anyway.  After I finished, I went into our gym in the basement and did two sets of of ten kettlebell swings, each set being ten two-handed, ten right-handed, and ten left-handed, and then worked out arms, shoulders, and lats on the Bowflex. This daily practice is really making a difference.  I feel like I am developing a swing that doesn't feel like a collection of different, mismatched parts.  Practicing my pre-shot routine on every shot and focusing on my BTTFTT swing thought is really making me more confident over the ball.  Hopefully I can get onto a golf course soon, even if it is the little spot-lit Par 3 course after work one evening.
    • Hi all, Just been given a set of Mizuno TP-18's with the 3 and 5 missing. I play MP-33's week in week out and didn't think anything would knock them off the top spot for me... Well, on the basis of 2 range sessions and 1 round, I wouldn't say they are stealing number 1 position in my bag, but they could be any day now if this keeps up. I presumed they were heavier than the the mP-33's (because the swing path goes exactly where it wants - which is through the ball to the target!! ) But, they are in fact lighter. Exact same length as the mP-33's. I did a quick Google but can find very little about the TP-18's - did anyone play them back in the day, or still play them? What year were they made and why so little about them on any  forum or internet in general? Thanks in advance for any thoughts on them  
    • Europe deserved it. You can’t putt like a pure amateur and expect to win. Worse putting display from professional golfers in a long time. Awful. Congrats to Europe for being able to make 4-7’ putts.
    • In my area they stay pretty much the same. In fact the course I play just did a play all day fee on Wednesday $40 includes a cart. Bad for those of us who play Wednesday every week. Now it takes 4+ hours to play 18, but good for the course.
