  1. A lot of folks do not appreciate advice unless asked. I have a playing partner. Often outwardly angry at a bad shot, or how the game is going-I initially tried to "help".That pissed them off even more. Eventually just learned to ignore the anger. Funny, the anger stopped It was my advice We are still married

  2. I have played golf on and off for a lot of years now. Only seriously since I retired. So a lot of embarrassing moments. But here is the one I remember best. Many years ago we were playing a course that was pretty narrow and wandered through a housing area, most manufactured homes. So on the tee I hit a big slice and it bounces off the roof of one of the homes. Clearly OB. So I tee it up and manage another big slice and hit the same home. As I was teeing the third ball the fellow who lived there came out with a stick waving a white flag. I though my buddies were going to sprain a rib

  3. Just a quick update, good news, I am down to 224 lbs. That is about 8 lbs of weight loss from when I started at 232. I got 34 lbs to go. Time to step it up a bit. I want to make it through the holidays unscathed ;) I think it's a good time to set up an intermediate goal. I am going to go 2 weeks without have bad food when I go out to eat. I also want to work out at least 4 times a week.

  4. GPS on the game golf is better than my iphone. The iphone gps is pretty solid. Sometimes when I use the app I have slightly more shots tagged that end up off from where I hit the shot. You can through their website ;)

  5. That's a good point I hadn't really thought of. If they are building up a database for comparison to develop their own strokes gained, they need everyone to mark where the pin is somewhat accurately (first putt distance is critical, as we all know). If people don't, then the source data against which you compare could be off- even if you mark your pins diligently. That's pretty funny actually! Ya know, when we were doing your numbers, I did want to ask you to confirm your putting distances, but I forgot. By telling my that you were missing those 1 and 2 footer (really 3 and 6 foo

  6. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/golfingdad/round/667827 Best round I've recorded on Game Golf to date. :) My birdies on 9 and 17 were the highlights because they were both those rare "textbook" type holes. 3 (for me) perfect shots where the ball traveled exactly as I envisioned it. Hope to be able to build on this and have more rounds like this in the near future, rather than have it turn out to be an anomaly.

  8. He wouldn't be the first guy to perpetuate a myth. Look at how many people still tell you the short game or putting is the true secret to scoring. Basic science or physics should carry some weight, too.

  9. Right, they have the smart tips in descending order based on the more granular categories (that we're not allowed to see). The putting stats have to be pretty close to bogus, though right? If you rely on tagging, as most users do, you're off by 2-3 yards (6-9 feet) before even considering that the location of the pin is not tagged. Sure, you might be able to get it down to +/-3 feet if you're really careful, but its not just about you. How careful is the average user, especially considering that before now--i.e., when all of the baseline data was collected--there was no wa

  10. Not to sound repetitive. But I strongly, vehemently, strenuously disagree with the statement in the last tweet: "5 months putting 6 hours a day". What a way to suck the fun out of a game where the best part is getting the ball in the air. Ah, I just saw your response @iacas right after I wrote this.

  11. If an OB stake is displaced, it becomes an obstruction. you may move it. If your ball moves incidental to moving the stake, replace it with no penalty.

  12. Golf does not occupy the same place in every golfer's life. Getting better is YOUR priority. Just enjoying the game may be HIS priority. "I play with this guy who is always taking lessons and practicing, as if he was going to qualify for the US Open someday. And I just like to go out, hit the ball around, and enjoy the game, without stressing too much over the score or my game. And all of that is fine, But this guy is constantly trying to make me over into himself, nags me about taking lesson and practicing, critiques my game telling me how I could improve, etc. So, ho

  13. Strengthening any muscle will give you more control and help prevent injury. My trainer recently gave me the following forearm exercise to replace the wrist flexion and extension I was doing. He said he was getting better results with this. He said with the wrist flexion the tendency was to engage the bicep too much. This is done with just a two-foot piece of two-inch diameter PVC pipe by working one wrist against the other. Using a firm, overhand grip towards the ends of the pipe and holding it in front of you with your arms straight, attempt to flex one wrist (twisting down)

  14. Best round ever, most birdies ever, and one drive hooked into a hazard away from breaking par. (Oh, and perhaps not coincidentally, it was on my birthday)

  15. A little bit of everything with an emphasis on poor execution.

  16. I'm pretty disappointed in the negative unwelcoming approach by so many members. Yes, it is possible. I personally, 100% understand why someone who just started is asking strangers about their progress. Why so many people doubt it can be done and call the OP a "troll" or "liar" is assuming, stupid, and ignorant. You can't stereotype someone because what they are claiming is rare. @jshanks26 Keep it up man. Don't worry about people doubting you. @Shorty WHY ASK STRANGERS? - because people you play with in person (that don't know you) get astounded that you have only been playing

  17. For most distance is the correct choice. You can't gain distance with your putting or chipping/pitching, so obviously the poll is asking about full swing/full shots, not about around the green.

    • I can't wait to hear about them.  I'm probably not getting new hybrids this year, but if I did, these would be near the top of my consideration list.  Please let us know how they are.
    • I read something recently in either Golf Digest or Golf Magazine and it listed I think the top 50 players and what they played for irons.  It was a blades/ combo set/ whatever set type of article.  I showed that they were very few players playing a full set of MB’s.  If I recall correctly, most were gaming some type of combo set.   Clubs like the TM p770 are just so good now, their benefits are more attractive to better players.
    • Thing is TV shows the good shots, the putts being made so we all think they hit everything close and make every putt. Go look up PGA tour proximity to the hole... you’d be surprised it’s not close like you see.
    • I would have to agree, as agile and strong as they are with a game of golf, they probably would look pathetic in a fighting ring. If and when they get their dup together that will be a good show. Although I think the media has hyped it beyond what it really is and would just be a competitive round of golf like most others.
    • I dunno. Watching two meat heads who probably have no idea how to fight isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. I’d rather see them play some serious golf and really give the tour a show.
