  1. I've played on all of the ones on the list plus I played the day of my wedding and the day after my wedding.
  2. "@iacas correct me if I'm wrong, but you're not really the lesson-taking type, so your practices are going to be a bit different than someone who is working to change something." You are correct in your assumptiont on my practice time. My practices are more of a maintenance type of thing. Just trying to keep what I already have, most useful when I need it. I use to work on specific things in a slow deliberate manner, but those days are now long over for me. Have been for quite a few years. Now days, with some of the physical limitations I have to deal with, I just use my own "KISS" practice regimine.
  3. Snakes don't bother me. I will give really poisonous ones a great deal of respect, but non-venomous snakes are an opportunity for a chase!
  4. England Golf did just that a couple of years ago. Rules did not rate highly as a deterrent.
  5. Football is a simpler game in the sense that all teams play on a field with the same dimensions. What players can or cannot do is based on their position. There is also no honor system in football, referees are hired to oversee the players and determine if the fouls they observed had an impact on the play. A referee could literally throw a flag on almost every play in a football game and be justified in doing so.
  6. I was confused watching the last show because the Pivot seemed to be the favorite of everyone that tested it so I was shocked when they said the Triton was the winner. I don't know how the Triton looks in person but on the show the top of the head reminded me of a skunk.

    Breaking 80 Thread

    76 - 70.0 = 6.0 6.0 * 113/126 = 5.4 differential (or 5.2 if you want to take the 0.96 multiplier right there). 14 nGIR is enough to put you at a 5-9 index pretty consistently. Congrats!
  8. Could be as simple as a set-up issue or as complex as a swing fault. Start a My Swing thread with DTL and FO video and we'll see if we can help. Unless you want random guesses based on your description, in which case, I'm gonna go with your socks are too tight.
  9. I worked all year to break 80. I had broken 80 in years past but got injured last year and it took me a while to get back up to speed. Late summer when I did break 80, I shot a 76. Later shot a 77, 78 and a host of 80's that could of been in the seventies except for a blow up hole, which always seemed to be the 18th... FIR and GIRs were generally over 50% and if I could make A putt I would of had much lower scores. Here are some of the things that help my score: Having a second shot to the green - not in the trees, blocked off etc Chipping close to the hole - this was painful, great when I was on 2 putting minimum - putting cost me a round in the 70's quite often Good course management - not going for stupid things that you shouldn't even consider or getting down on yourself when there is plenty of room to score Keeping stress/tension getting into your hands for important shots
  10. FINALLY!!!!! (fully disclosure, i played solo so I know it technically doesn't count) Shot a +4 76 at Watters Creek here In Plano, TX. Played from the men's tees (whites). Rating from that tee box is 70.0/126. So I guess adjusted would be +6? Not sure how that works. How i did it... GIR/nGIR - 14/18...best ever for me by a long shot Putts - 36..2 - 1 putts, 14 - 2 putts, 2 - 3 putts. Not my best day putting, but I wasn't wasting strokes trying to get on the green. Fairways - I drove the ball well, but didn't hit a lot of fairways. My misses driving in the last month have been much better and don't penalize me like they used too. Hitting the ball longer helps, as LSW points out, since I'm still getting closer to the hole. It was fun and great to see all the work/lessons come together for a round. Hoping to give it another go today!

    • Oh, I’d love for both of them to lap the field and then go at it...hear me out. If this is the case, the loser will be devastated / pissed off to lose to their rival. If i get to see this rivalry play out- I’ll def be jumping and yelling at the TV (I might do that anyway)
    • Tiger of course my first in wanting to win. Jordan maybe my second as I think it would do wonders for him and get him back to being a relevant competitor. I’d also love to see BD and/or Koepka go low then choke spectacularly and lose...lol.
    • We may hear about it out of nowhere.  But he does not have a normal back anymore, with previous injuries and surgeries.  I enjoy watching him play, but am concerned that he will significantly damage it further. 
    • I don’t. I don’t watch the PGA TOUR for that matter alone either. As I said, I prefer a loaded LPGA tournament over any CT. What bores me about the LPGA and usually the CT is the lack of ‘awe’ in shot making. Sure distance is often a large part of the excitement. But so is sheer talent and strength which is often lacking on both the LPGA and the CT.  I get zero thrill watching the ladies lay up to par 5’s over and over. I don’t admire the simple punch outs because they can’t hit a 30 yard slice or hook from deep rough either because ...they can’t or they have a bad back. I completely get the ladies are great golfers. But they’re not dazzling shot makers and neither are the CT guys. Almost every time there’s a tight finish going into a playoff it’s a gentle poke down the middle followed by a safe shot to the green. 
    • Well as @Vinsk stated look at the stats. The scoring averages are lower on the Champions Tour and they play more difficult courses. To me that says the golf is better, at least statistically, on the Champions Tour.  As to which is more entertaining, thats a matter of opinion and concerning opinion you cannot argue. I find a lot of the players on the LPGA Tour boring to watch, thats my opinion as well, if you disagree that is your right.
