  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.

    • So...south London sort of.  Would it be Palace?
    • As a rule of thumb I tend to walk.  I have a 2 wheeled cart and am OK to push it and play without a caddie.  The only courses I would prefer to have a cart is one where there are a lot of steep uphills.  I find it more tiring to climb than it should be.  I suppose being unfit and time catching up to me has that effect. I have never objected to a cart but rarely see a need to pay separately for that.  If it is built into the green fee or is mandatory, I will use the cart.  Of course carts tend to be quicker and less exhausting so that is a big plus.
    • Going to bed early. Since it's already the 14th in Gander, Newfoundland (an airport I know well) I'll post Rule 14. ******************************* A stand-alone Rule (old Rule 20) that we cannot live without! Rule 14 - Procedures for Ball: Marking, Lifting and Cleaning; Replacing on Spot; Dropping in Relief Area; Playing from Wrong Place What’s new for 2019: RELIEF AREA - A semicircle or portion thereof with a radius of either one or two club-lengths where a player must drop when taking relief. (Definition) DROPPING - A player must drop from knee height and the ball must be dropped into and come to rest in the relief area. The player may either drop the original ball or they may substitute a ball. (R14.3) ********** Purpose of Rule: Rule 14 covers when and how the player may mark the spot of a ball at rest and lift and clean the ball and how to put a ball back into play so that the ball is played from the right place. When a lifted or moved ball is to be replaced, the same ball must be set down on its original spot. When taking free relief or penalty relief, a substituted ball or the original ball must be dropped in a particular relief area. A mistake in using these procedures may be corrected without penalty before the ball is played, but the player gets a penalty if he or she plays the ball from the wrong place. ********* The parts of the Rule: 14.1 Marking, Lifting and Cleaning Ball 14.2 Replacing Ball on Spot 14.3 Dropping Ball in Relief Area 14.4 When Player’s Ball is Back in Play after Original Ball Was Out of Play 14.5 Correcting Mistake Made in Substituting, Replacing, Dropping or Placing Ball 14.6 Making Next Stroke from Where Previous Stroke Made 14.7 Playing from Wrong Place https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=fr&section=rule&rulenum=14 Relevant Interpretations for Rule 14: Few of us know the contents of every Interpretation, however it’s helpful to review the titles from time to time. I’ll list the ones for Rule 14 here, read through them, you never know when you might need one. Admittedly, some of it is very obscure stuff. For example, look at the very first one. One day you might mark your ball and then lift it with the back of your Ping Anser. Bozo, your opponent, will start to yell that you lose the hole because, “You can’t do that.” Guess what, you already know you can and you whip out your phone go to the Rules app and shut him up. Sweet! 14.1a/1 Ball May Be Lifted in Any Manner 14.1a/2 Marking Ball Correctly 14.1c/1 Player Must Be Careful When Lifted Ball May Not Be Cleaned 14.2b(2)/1 Player Drops Ball When Ball Is to Be Replaced 14.2c/1 Ball May Be Replaced in Almost Any Orientation 14.2c/2 Removal of Loose Impediment from Spot Where Ball to Be Replaced 14.2d(2)/1 Altered Lie Might Be “Nearest Spot with Lie Most Similar” 14.2e/1 Player Must Take Penalty Relief When Spot Where Ball Will Remain at Rest Is Nearer Hole 14.2/1 Ball Does Not Need to Be Replaced on Original Spot When Player Will Play From Another Place 14.3b(2)/1 Ball May Fall Only a Short Distance When Dropped from Knee Height 14.3c(1)/1 What to Do When Dropped Ball Moves After Coming to Rest Against a Player’s Foot or Equipment 14.3c(2)/1 Ball Dropped in Right Way Twice That Comes to Rest Outside Relief Area Might Be Placed Outside Relief Area 14.3c(2)/2 Where to Place Ball Dropped in Right Way Twice in Relief Area with a Bush in It 14.3c/1 Relief Area Includes Everything in Relief Area 14.3c/2 Ball May Be Dropped in No Play Zone 14.4/1 Placed Ball Is Not in Play Unless There Was Intent to Put It in Play 14.4/2 Test Drops Are Not Allowed 14.5b(3)/1 Player May Change Relief Areas When Dropping Again for Back-On-the-Line Relief 14.5b(3)/2 Player May Change Areas of the Course in the Relief Area When Dropping Again 14.7b/1 Player Gets Penalty for Each Stroke Made from Area Where Play Is Not Allowed 14.7b/2 Ball in Wrong Place If Club Strikes Condition Relief Was Taken From https://www.usga.org/content/usga/home-page/rules/rules-2019/rules-of-golf/rules-and-interpretations.html#!ruletype=interp&section=rule&rulenum  
    • I don’t know why DJ is out there.  If we want to throw a match, Reed and DeChambeau would be a lot more fun.  Send them out first.  Nothing like a 6 hour round to slow down the Internationals. John
