  1. I made sure with wife 3.0 that I got the unlimited golf option ... its not always an option that you can get off the local self ... I had to wait till wife 3.0 was available ... Prior versions of wife would not have tolerated as much golf as I play ... thus the upgrades ... Warning: Read the label on wife 2.0 close ... while wife 2.0 claims golf is included in the package ... the small print says golf only on approved days ...

  2. Let us hear your experience or opinion. Here is what Walter Hagen's second wife, Edna Strauss, said after their divorce: "Unless a woman is a golf addict herself, she should NEVER marry a confirmed golfer. It can only go on the rocks. Walter lived golf, asleep and awake. Before dinner and after, he was practicing strokes in the living room.". Here is a counterpoint: my wife and I have been married for 36 years. I am a real golf enthusiast. She does not play in spite of coaxing by me. Our son, daughter, and grand daughter not only play, but also are enthusiasts! My wife has not

  3. Found this info - Not really sure why you have a signal loss of the other channels? I have good news and bad news for you. The good news... any antenna should work for 4K over-the-air broadcasting, even the really old one that was on the roof when you got the house. The bad news... There probably will never be any 4K over-the-air broadcasting. Ever. Broadcasters aren't required to put out a 4K signal and that means that they probably won't. The only reason you see HD today is because a move to digital broadcasting was mandated by the FCC back in the 2000s and while that didn't techn

  4. I voted "disagree" but I have to say I'm not the most informed person on this "issue". I love watching them hit it far. I can totally relate to a 200 yard 7iron just like I can relate to a pro football player diving over the line into the endzone. I can't do these things . . .but I still like to watch them being done. I also can see the argument about needing to re-tool golf courses to manage ever increasing distances. I agree that distance is relative. You could make some kind of equipment change that shortens everybody's drives by 25% and the game would still be just as exciting.

  5. I voted yes, but it can be a slippery path. Keys are compromise and keeping priorities straight. Family comes above ALL else. Things ive learned on the subject; keep priorities straight, do things to cutback like play shorter courses, executive courses or just nine holes from time to time. And it also helps to marry the greatest woman the earth has ever seen.

  6. Heck, even Ivy League school attendance doesn't guarantee intelligence in my opinion. One need not look much further than most of our politicians and candidates to see a pool of Ivy League people who are pretty stupid.

  7. I am going with no. I say this somewhat in jest but holy cow I see some stupid stuff out there. Bad decisions all over the course from tee selection to risk taking with golfers being completely oblivious about their abilities.

  8. As long as the golfer isn't a dick about it and remembers that they're not the only one in the relationship it should work just fine.

  9. Intelligence is a trait. A very measurable one. Intelligence is the ability to see future (or recreate past). Translation - The ability to infer what is not in plain sight. In short, ability to put two and two together. More steps you can accurately infer in sequence with limited indicators, the more intelligent you are. IQ tests are based on that and IMO very much a measure of this trait - so yes, it can be measured without the context of 'intelligence in a certain field'. Now , in the context of a certain field - experience is an additional intelligence builder which is why people get more i

  10. PEZ SEZ----I have not posted on this website for a few years. In fact, I played almost NO golf for the last 5 years, and had almost no interest in doing so. Prior to that, I was a true "golf enthusiast", and played a minimum of 80 rounds each year, and always belonged to a club. I was the Publisher and Editor of my own golf magazine, "The Golf News" and a guide for tourists called "Central New York Directory For Tourists". Well, the bad things that were happening to me and my wife have subsided or are done and over with. I am playing golf again, and my handicap dropped from 16 to

  11. I actually think that the newer clubs have less gear effect spin. Please understand that I'm talking about gear effect spin. If your clubface isn't square to the path, you'll get sidespin, but for a different reason. Gear effect spin is kind of self-correcting. For a ball hit on the toe, with a clubface square to the path, the tendency is for the clubhead to rotate open, pushing the ball to the right (RH golfer). However, as the clubface opens, the gear effect induces draw spin, tending to curve the ball back to the left. The clubhead rotation is what induces gear effect spin. If you l

  14. I wouldn't be calling 'HaHa' from the Jersey Shore. Our temps here in the Philly Burbs are pretty similar to Atlantic City. We may be able to play but it's not ideal conditions. I soldiered through it this past weekend (41 degrees, cloudy and windy) but am paying the price with a bit of a cold now.

  17. Will do. As for the cheating, as long as it's not for score, it's about improving your game. Have fun with it. If no one is pushing, throw down an extra ball. Whatever. That's why I very rarely get mad about a poor shot. Every swing is about improving. We all need that.

  18. I'm going to buy one just to screw with my golf buddies. The expression on their faces when I pull it out on the first tee and shoot the ball down the middle, would be "priceless" Wonder if they make a model for 300 yard drives ? ......

  19. Actually, I would like two things. 1) An in depth, total bag fitting with no preconceived ideas about brands. 2) Enough cash to buy the clubs I was fitted for.

  21. I have a family and a corporate job. I never have time to practice. I just show up at my club once a week and play a round. That's all the practice I get. In spite of this I usually shoot around 90, sometimes a little less. I'm very happy with that.

  22. When in my 20's I played and practiced everyday in the summer. I was a teacher and had 2.5 months off. I'd play a practice 18 with one club early in the morning, go to the range for a couple of hours and then play another 18 with friends in the afternoon. I really enjoyed those days and was determined to become a scratch golfer. Alas, there is this thing called talent, and although my handicap would occasionally fall below 5, it would always return to 5. Practice, lessons -- nothing really could bring that handicap down. So, that's where I stayed for about 20 years. Then, a back

  23. I married a non-golfer, back in 1984. Apparently I've infected her, she plays as much or more than I do.

  24. That's about 50-60mi south of me. I play mostly Hollywood GC, Eagle Ridge, Lakewood CC, and others. Played Seaview a long time ago in a junior tournament but haven't been there since. I do go down and play Sea Oaks a couple times a year though.

  26. I'm with @rkim291968on this one. I haven't read a compelling argument in any of the posts to support the idea that golfers are more intelligent. I can, however, find several examples on this site where those who are familiar with pro golfers state that they are not that knowledgeable about their swings. They are good at doing what their coaches tell them to do. Same with many instructors - who play at a very high level golf but when shown the evidence of ball flight laws, choose to ignore the science. Not so smart. As far as thinking on the course, that's lame. Do you know what'

  27. Compare a good golfer with, say, an NFL QB who can read defenses. Both have college degrees. Difference is the golfer reads greens. Both are intelligent in their own right.

    • As Erik said, you can (actually must) post match play scores, subject to one or two other requirements (play by the rules, play a minimum number of holes, how to determine the score for holes not played, or not finished).  You can refer to Rules 2.1a here for the Authorized Formats: https://www.usga.org/handicapping/roh/2020-rules-of-handicapping.html Match play scores have been acceptable for handicap posting in the US for as long as I can remember.  This is one of the areas where the USGA regulations still differ from other parts of the world, which formats produce scores acceptable for handicap posting.
    • This morning I got an email notice that I could schedule my first vaccine dose, 8 days after getting myself on the list for my county.  I'm now scheduled to be vaccinated tomorrow afternoon at 4 PM, getting the Pfizer formulation.  So far so good. 
    • It's tough.  Good luck.   CBS New reported this morning that China is not giving the WHO all of the data they have on the virus.   It's assumed, according to CBS News, that the virus came from bats and was denied access to a cave where it is assumed to originated.  
    • I would not change a thing, but Wednesday, five days after our second Pfizer shot, I noticed some bumps on the back of my head, in addition to the golfball bump.  I am never sick, but Friday I was diagnosed with Shingles.  My doctor-type-person said that can happen when your immune system is being manipulated.  I see on the Internet, it's happened to others. Shingles is everything it's advertised to be!!!!!
