  1. I have never hit a mediocre shot with a lob wedge. They are either real good, or real bad. So, I have a pw, gap, and sw. I really prefer my old Eye2 set up, when it was just pw and sw.
  2. There are no cars allowed on Bald Head Island, and I went to college with a guy that got a DUI in a golf cart.
  3. That is exactly why I don't like those big grips.
  4. Biography of Jerry Lee Lewis by Rick Bragg
  5. Saw Lyle Lovett last Saturday, so Lyle Lovett and other assorted Texas singer, songwriters.
  6. Saw a tee shirt in Western NC. Vegetarian: Old Indian Word for Bad Hunter.
  7. That may be true up north, but there seem to be a lot of guys using them where I play. The Kangaroo seems to be very popular. They are expensive, but the factory is about 1.5 hours away, and the guys can take their carts there for repairs.
  8. I like the Martini tees. They don't give me any atvantage, but they are real durable. Been using the same tee for several months.
  9. Don't students get a good rate at Finley?
  10. I went to NC State, so I am proud to participate in any activity that pisses off the pointy headed folks at UNC.
  11. Almost 62. I carry hybrids to replace my 3&4 irons,and I use a push cart rather than carry. I ride a bit more often when it is hot. Still play blue tees (6700), and hit it as long as I ever have. My 88 year old father still plays, so I have been blessed with good genes and flexibility.
  12. Rio should be kicked out of the Olympics.
  13. Pinehurst's holes, for the most part, are framed by trees that really don't come in to play. That is a look I prefer to Oakmont's. That being said, Oakmont is a great US Open course. It really seemed to test every part of the player's game. I really liked the lush green look, along with the natural looking fescue areas, vs the burned out look of Chambers Bay and Pinehurst.
  14. I don't know what his choice of car had to do with his behavior, but if he had a problem with you,, there is no excuse to be rude to your daughter. I know if I was playing with a golf pro, I would welcome any help with rules. Some people feel rules and etiquette don't apply to them. This seems to apply on and off the course.
  15. Tim Clark shot a 61 in a US Open qualifier at my course. I believe he was still at NC State when it occurred.
