    Driving Range Etiquette Question

    I spend a LOT of time on the range. The only rule I apply is...don't speak unless you're spoken to. I don't want to interrupt someone (even if they are struggling.) If someone asks me for advice or help, I'm more than happy to do so...but never unsolicited.

    Golfing on a (very) active volcano

    Volcano Golf Club? I thought it was the Steve Pate Golf Club. 😉

    Y’all ever sneak on to a course?

    Lived near a public muni that you could hop on the third hole. Used to go there all the time to look for balls but also sneak in a handful of holes. I'd sell the golf balls on Sundays in old egg cartons. Memories. 🙂

    2018 The PLAYERS Championship

    Joey seems extremely laid back...like Fred. May have worked for Couples but not sure about Tiger.

    Golfer Elbow

    I've dealt with tennis elbow (pain on the outside of the elbow) for the past year or so...but it is in the right elbow. I've had to rest it a bit and go through some does of meloxicam/ibuprofen to calm it down. I also wear one of the straps that relieves stress on the tendon when I hit balls. That has helped but it hasn't gone away completely. I need to stretch and ice it a bit more than I do...i haven't been diligent on doing some of the PT work.

    Cutting the Cord…

    One other consideration for me is NFL. I watch an out-of-market team so I'd need Sunday Ticket. if you cut the cord and go to streaming you can't get the online-streaming version unless: You are in an apartment or Your signal is blocked So that answers the question if I should go with DirecTV so I could add Sunday Ticket and stream the games that way. With all the people cutting the cord I'm surprised they aren't using this as a hook. I'm guessing there is some other reason. Leaning Hulu Live right now. I haven't had the Sunday Ticket in years but wanted the option. I'm guessing it will become available at some other time. I could get Game Pass for $50 and just watch the replay.

    Cutting the Cord…

    Playstation Vue. Big and significant enough that DirecTV uses them as a comparison. Don't know of anyone that uses them though.

    Cutting the Cord…

    I'm considering as well. I've looked at the different options and the problem with DirecTV Now is that they put the Golf Channel in the $60/mo "Go Big" package. Can someone confirm that Hulu TV has it included in their $40 Live TV package? It looks like they do. It's more expensive to add on HBO to Hulu ($15 vs $5) but that doesn't make up the difference. Plus Hulu has cloud DVR as well. I'm leaning Hulu Live TV right now and adding another Apple 4k TV. Also wondering if I'm going to have to up my internet package as well to handle the throughput of streaming plus the kids gaming at the same time.

    What's the difference between D1 and D2 level golf?

    Lee Janzen won the D2 individual national championship in 1986.

    Yardages Throughout the Bag

    I'd put myself at Red or just a bit higher. Carry for driver is around 255-260. For the rest of the chart I'd say I'm longer with the 3-wood, slightly longer with the 4 & 5 irons and about 5-7 yards longer with the 6-PW. Full LW and GW are pretty spot on...shows my gap (20y) between my GW and PW and something I've considered filling.

    2018 Masters Tournament Discussion Topic

    Current odds: Rory: 10/1 JT: 10/1 Dustin: 23/2 Tiger: 12/1 Spieth: 14/1 Rose: 16/1 Bubba: 16/1 Day: 18/1 Phil: 20/1 Rahm: 20/1 Rickie: 22/1 I thought Bubba would have jumped a bit more. I'd take him over DJ and Tiger for sure right now. Rory, JT and Bubba would be my top 3 as it stands.

    Is Bubba a HOF golfer currently?

    If he wins another major he's on the other side of the fence. I'd still like to see around 15 wins as well. Personally, I think he will get there.
