  1. 86. ...but it felt more like a 96 because I just couldn't get the driver working... On the positive side, I played quickly, finished in about 2:15, and I don't think anyone notice me show up late to work.
  2. It really is a short (not much over 6200 yards), walker-friendly course. ...and this is Oklahoma, so it's flat - that helps too. But I think Buckeye nailed it - there's no lollygagging going on here. It's literally, tee-off on 1, walk to the ball, hit the ball, walk to the ball, hit the ball... I've played it a lot and the decisions about clubs/yardage are easy.
  3. 18, walking, not rushing = 2:15. (But not pulling pins either.) That said, my course is set up for walking (only one long walk from green to tee --- the clubhouse and practice area intervene between 9 and 10). If I hurry, I can get just under 2:00.
  4. 87. Worst round in... six months. :( And the weather was perfect - no excuses except lousy play on my part.
  5. Damn. I thought you were talking about Aussie Rules Football . Carn the Crow !
  6. ....I find them creepy - in an over-obsessed-stalker sort of way.
  7. If I Win I'll choose the DTX Midsize Red grips to start my 2015 golf season with a PURE advantage! 1. Henrik Stenson -10 2. Victor Dubuisson -11 3. Zach Johnson -12
  8. After about ten days of unseasonal snow, my e5's arrived just before a conference took me out of town for a week. You know how some golf balls just look good in your hand? That's how the e5s were. Well, at least as long as I kept their new chunky e5 logo pointed away from me. Still, I couldn't wait to get out and try them on the course. Flash-forward to this week, Spring Break, and I took a sleeve of e5s out for a comparison with the ProV1s that I most often play. I'm about a 12 handicap*. I have inconsistent ball-striking, and all the flaws we're trying to get rid of (I'm an over-t
  9. 1) Handicap: in the single digits. 2) Driving: 6+ fairways per round. 3) Swing: get closer to an in-to-out swing path. 4) Clubs: get fit for clubs. 5) Rounds: more than 50 rounds for the year.
  10. Not at all. By the end of 18, I'm not sure I remember the shots on some holes from the front nine.
  11. Thanks for posting - this has been fun to read. I hope you'll discuss the 'competition' experience too. One of the (many!) problems I have with the game is that I keep forgetting what I *should* know -- especially when I'm eager to perform better. (Put another way, repeated mistakes frustrate me because it seems like I have only myself to blame...)
  12. 44 + 42 = 86. No birdies. 34F at tee-off. No one else on the course. 10-15 mph winds. Clear. ...beautiful. Full round walking (not rushing) in 2:16. Too many bogeys, but man did I have fun!
  13. Your friend is right - look at the politics and policies about this. It is going out of fashion!
  14. Anyone who objects to using golf as a verb cannot call himself (or herself) a golfer since golfer is formed by adding - er to the verb golf. Adding - er to a verb should give us a meaning like "one who verbs " (whatever the meaning of the verb is). Worker -- one who works, walker -- one who walks, talker -- one who talks, golfer -- one who.... I'm always amused by people who object to golf as a verb. ...that said, they are usually much more affluent than I am, so the objection probably works as some sort of socio-economic s
  15. 85. ...set my personal speed record for playing 18 too... 1:46. Walking. (OK, I jogged down the fairway on a few holes.) Nearly perfect day. Cold enough to keep the crowds away (below 40F) but sunny and not too much wind. I could have played better though. Should have been 2-3 shots lower based on putting, I hit three trees (sorry trees), and two penalties.
