  1. IMO walk the course is a win. Play on with 72 is a privilege no matter how well or badly. I recommend play foursome or Texas scramble. They are less demand on yourself. Share some wisdom to the Junior. I always welcome some from my senior member.

  2. Now that he is retiring from his broadcasting, I would love to see Johnny Miller as a captain. I know it would never happen, as he is seen as too controversial....... BUT imagine the conversations between him and the players behind closed doors.

  3. I’m sure Stricker is probably a good choice from the player’s perspective. And that’s what’s important. Personally I just find him to be very lacking in charisma or personality.

  4. Golf is a game best played with others. But I can play a round solo and enjoy it just as much.

  5. This is a little tricky to say which is right and why they are different. Could both be wrong or could both be right. First I will say remember that the clubs you were fitting are different and have different specs. Stock length on the 5s are longer than the 2s. Swing weights are also slightly different and static weights are different. 100g DG shaft vs a 112g PX (speaking rough cut weights) also could make differences with lie angle. All this is to say that I think you need to fit each club (ie set) on it's own after picking the shaft and head you want. Because those two things will impa

  6. Yes, I think you may be missing something. There is more than one way of not knowing about penalty strokes you have incurred. There is ignorance of the rule (and that includes DJ's error) and there is knowing a rule but not realising that you have breached it eg by not noticing you touched sand with your backswing in a bunker, not noticing you accidentally moved your ball, not noticing that you had teed up in front of the markers. You cannot know what you have not seen. In such a situation it's right that the player cops the penalty for whatever it was, but not right that he should be furt

  7. I'm in my mid-50's & ham and egg it out there 230ish ON AVERAGE. I know my game and my limitations. I play with a bunch of younger guys in my office. I love beating the cocky young guns that hit it 30 - 40 yds past me off the tee (one guy in particular does hit it a legit 280 yds avg, but can't control it). It seems to be an ego thing - everybody in that age group wants to hit it long ... but I do get a twisted sense of accomplishment cutting them off at the knees when I put my 6 or 7 iron on (or at least close to) the green, while they're in the bunker or deep rough coming in wi

  8. I gave it up for a year when i could no longer make any kind of contact with the ball. I delved into my other passion, fly fishing for trout, and enjoyed myself. The golf bug did bite me again and I have continued to be an avid golfer at age 66. Try taking a break doing something else you enjoy.

  9. It's a better position for me. My tendency is to lower my hands on the takeaway which leads me to set my right wrist too early, club head gets in and then the shaft gets shallow/narrow on the backswing. If I get shallow/narrow, sweet spot gets too low and behind me which causes me to stall my pivot and lift my arms. So for me feeling more "Nicklaus" helps me get the hands to ascend "up", keeps the sweet spot higher on the backswing and keep cranking the rotation of the torso. I also just like the way it feels. Gives me a good sense of where the face and mass of the club are. I don't have to "f

  10. I am traveling now. I will be heading east on I-10 tomorrow sometime. Destination is not known as yet. Depends on where my wife wants me to pick her up on her return trip from PA. All I know is there are plenty of golf courses, RV parks in front of me.

  12. There are a lot of variables when it’s that cold out. I think you had a great round all things considered and it sounded like a lot of fun.

  14. Maybe this is OT, and I obviously agree with you on the rule, but saying it's a "millennial way of thinking" is ridiculous. Sigh.

  15. Yup - this part is even worse, to me, than the problem of someone who intentionally lies (saying they "didn't know" a rule). I think this rule moves golf away from a game of integrity, self-policed by the players, and towards a game that has to be "refereed". That's not a good thing, even at the professional level (the only level where it's even remotely practical).

  16. I rarely get to play with my son or a friend (most friends don't play). So those are special days. So for me it is my true recreation. It allows me to recreate myself in terms of body and mind and gives me a chance to express my frustrations in invectives from 7 languages. I have a few other hobbies, now that I am retired, but golf holds a honored space because of the reasons above.

  18. Given that I think golf as an outdoor sport will be non-existent in 30-40 years, I think smaller courses are temporarily inevitable. Not sure that means it is better.

    • I picked "other" because there's no "all of the above, depending on circumstances." Though almost never "pocket" or "Take off before round and replace after round" with the driver or woods.
    • Thanks. Glad to be here. Yeah, I was pretty upset when I posted that. Every time I think I've "figured it out" I think I've "mastered the draw" it all falls apart. Last week I told the ball claim guy to go buy a lottery ticket, because I hit draw after draw. But yeah, the problems I had on the range yesterday gave the brief urge to snap my five iron and chunk my golf bag. The fact that my idiot brother-in-law possibly  exposed my wife, kid, and mother-in-law to the virus and they're isolated there and I'm isolated here may have also played a role in said frustration. I may have had a couple drinks in me when I posted that as well. Possibly.
    • not really questioning the accuracy, just curious as the source of the projection, but yes. As admittedly, I really don't look at this stuff much, it may be "common knowledge" at this point, but even so, I wouldn't be aware of it.  The projection just struck my attention.
    • Are you questioning the three years part of the 40-50% thing?
    • No cover for the putter.  Driver goes on top of the bag.  Fairways I added a string between so the empty one dangles.
