  1. Hey David... don't be stealing my Latin. 😉 Or perhaps we just think alike and you didn't read the prior posts...
  2. He’s just a lot better than me. Felt good to finally beat him.
  3. How can the golf course prevent people from building “too close“ to the driving range? If the course was there first, caveat emptor…
  4. I’ll take a different look at this......did you notice the driving range and door dents before you bought the place?
  5. Thanks for the info. Money is not really an issue but I don't think it's smart to pay $300 for a putter when the $99 dollar works just as well. I couldn't tell the difference between it and the Ping. My main issue has always been distance control. Thinking maybe the soft HB 1 will be the one I buy.
  6. Today's round of golf was pretty special for me. For the first time in quite a while my wife, definately my better half, joined me for 18 holes. Just her, and her SC putter. A few months ago, she underwent brain sergury to remove a benign tumor. Her rehab was quite remarkable, and she has had no ill effects from the sergury, as of yet. One of the first things we did, at her request, after her sergury was, what I thought was an ill advised road trip. However she, and her surgeon convinced me it would be ok. Of course I took my golf clubs, and she took her cameras. They say doctors make the worst patients, and I kind of understand that now. Her being an orthopedic sergeon (retired) herself, she made sure the folks involved in the pre/post sergury were at the top of their game. They all pretty much knew each other anyways. As I understand it, the young doctor who removed the 20 something staples recieved quite an ear full. An ear full of education So this morning, just out of the blue, she tells me let's go golfing. That she would putt against my full game. What this competition amounts too is she drops a ball on the green, at a spot farthest from the cup, and putts from there. Her par is what the hole is. Basically it's my entire bag of clubs, against her, and one of my extra flat sticks SCameron should be proud. She won today's round by 3 strokes, which means I am on the hook for a dinner, and a show, of her choice, later on this week. I even broke 80. Obviously, even though a loser, I am a happy person. After almost 50 years of marriage I still have the woman of my dreams around who likes to golf. Perhaps next time out (a grudge rematch) she will add a few chips, and pitches to our competition. I'm pretty sure she will still win....😍
  7. I have read the book many times. The book is actually a masterpiece, to my pov. It has so many insights and presents his system in the most precise manner imaginable. I don't understand the detractors. I share insights from it with players better than myself with low handicaps and more technical approaches (body oriented swings) and they're always stunned by Manuel's insights. Not to say it is for everyone. I would suggest people watch the videos. I am a reader and some people are not but I would say it is important to read the book to recommend it. I just wish I had met the man. Extraordinary teacher and I am grateful for what he contributed, and to my game. Am much more accurate now and enjoy not being in the woods, wasting time with positions and all kinds of questionable golf advice. My two cents.

    • This was not a joke. I really did have a goal to make it to the PGA Tour. But I realized that it’s most likely not gonna happen. I realized that getting my handicap down to mid single digits is more realistic.
    • That is a crazy number! I didn’t know it was that rare.  And of course you guys know the numbers, lol
    • For years I used to play whatever ball I can get my hands on, including old balls I fish out of the water. Last year a friend gifted me a box of Pro V1s, and I swear I can visualize and shoot better with them. I feel like they give me both distance on hard shots and touch on finesse shots. I've tried V1xs, too, but don't like them as much compared to the V1, seem more mushy. It's probably all in my head, but in any case I've been playing only V1s for the last 6 months. I'm sure my bank account has taken a hit, but the plus side is that I'm much more deliberate now and don't hit stupid "hit and pray" shots any more. I don't lose as many balls as I used to, and actually had to retire a few balls due to shell damage, which had never happened before the switch. I played the TP5 and TP5x, didn't quite like either. Last week I bought a box of Z-Stars and TourBs each to see if any of them can replace the V1s.
    • Well I’d probably guess it was me over swinging that’s causing my head and then body move. But even before the club gets that high my torso seems to be bobbling up and down a lot so who know.       Cheers
    • Vilips is  a terrific player. No-one contests that. History tells us that success as a junior is by no means an indicator of success as a professional golfer. You have absolutely zero idea of what his fate a s a professional is. Hopefully he'll do really well. But historically, he has more chance of fading away than becoming successful. It's a sad but true fact of life when it comes to golf. There are many people on this site who cold name a dozen players who were absolute guns at a young age who didn't even get close to making it on the PGATour. Vilips is one of many very talented young players. Look at all of the final 8 in the US Amateur over the last 20 years and see how many names you (don't) recognise.
