    The TST Member tournament play thread....

    Thanks...like I said, I'm still a bit miffed. But, I had finished second the last four times! At least I'm no longer the first loser. 😄

    The TST Member tournament play thread....

    A couple of updates. First, I won our Club Championship a couple weekends ago. I played very steady for the first 27 holes and built myself a 7 shot lead going into the last 9. Proceeded to make a quad (first one in a while) on 10. Even after that I was calm and kept the lead and ended up winning by three. Funny thing is that I haven't really enjoyed it because of how bad I played on the back 9...I hadn't made bad swings like that in a long time and it really ticked me off. I'm working to make sure that doesn't happen in the match-play championship this Saturday. Would be fun to pull the double! Also, I played out at Pebble (and Spanish Bay) last weekend with a buddy of mine that we qualified for. We finished in the top third...gave a ton of shots away in our first round but played much better the second day. Even if we would have gotten rid of those bad swings we still wouldn't have won but probably been top 5. It was a great experience though. Pebble is the most picturesque and well conditioned golf course I've ever been on. I've been to #2 and Kiawah but Pebble is in a different category because of the surroundings.
  3. Nah, he wanted to get together and play a round somewhere in between...around Charlotte. Our schedules (mostly mine) hasn't really been favorable for that!
  4. @jsgolfer, I am in possession of the Newport Cup. It came to me while I was out at Pebble last weekend. Will post some pics soon. I have some ideas but it might be a little bit before I can get them.

    I started last years thread talking about the guys going low....and there goes Brandt with a 59!

    73 in a weekend tournament from the tips. The course was playing much longer than usual since we've had a bunch of rain in the past couple weeks. Most drives were only getting 5 yards of rollout at most. Struggled a bit in mid-round with control of the driver and it cost me at least a couple shots. Other than that I hit a bunch of greens (12/18) and it was very stress free thanks to missing in good spots and chipping the ball really well.

    Golfer Elbow

    I had tennis elbow flare up last year pretty bad. I got it manageable by taking some NASIDs but also bought one of those straps. I only use it when I hit balls...not when I play. After a year, I don't even have the issue any more but I'm still using the strap when I hit balls (I hit a LOT of them) to make sure it doesn't flare up again.

    2018 British Open Championship at Carnoustie

    Tiger: -2. 😁
  9. Four months, four majors...bookended by The Players and the playoffs. Very balanced schedule which is what they are intending along with pulling some things in to get away from NFL and college football. I like it.

    Made it to the finals of our gross match play tournament. Won 5&3. One more match to go in mid-August. Weird thing is that I felt like I struggled all day with the tee ball and ball striking in general but still hit half my fairways and 11 greens. Shot a 72 (+1) with a couple birdies and a hole-out from 40 yards for eagle. I had been hitting the ball really, really well but after a 10 day layoff for vacation I had some rust out there.

    Cutting the Cord…

    I've found that with Hulu Live as well. Don't like having to watch commercials but I do like saving $90 a month. My biggest issues so far with Hulu: Forced commercials...but, like I said, I understand. When I go to watch a DVR'd show that is currently on (like a MLB game) it always starts at the beginning and I have to slowly fast forward through it. Wish there was a "go to live" option...maybe I'm missing something. Not sure if this is AppleTV or not but I've had to re-log in on multiple TV's. Maybe once every 3 weeks. Slightly annoying. What I like: Saving money. Interface on AppleTV is great and easy to stop and start programs from one place Picture quality is great for the most part. Live TV is not always perfect but I only watch live TV maybe 20% of the time...and even then it's normally great. You will get some pixelation every so often. Access to all sports I want. Golf, World Cup, Baseball, etc. I don't have to pay extra and it's all there. The kids only noticed yesterday that DirecTV was gone...and I cut that well over a month ago. Goes to show how much they relied on it.

    2018 World Cup

    Great match. The better team won but I thought Japan was going to win going away for a while. They were very good keeping control of the ball and played like a poor-man's Spain. Never looked stressed. When Fellani came in you knew exactly what was going to happen...throw up some crosses with him and Lukaku in the middle. They both had a huge size advantage in there. Give Lukaku a lot of credit for laying off the cross and letting it go through. He knew exactly where Chadli was.

    What happened to Mizuno irons?

    And that would make sense. 😀

    What happened to Mizuno irons?

    Well, I’m pretty happy with the MP-18’s. Most everyone has game improvement irons but that doesn’t take away from their traditional line.

    http://www.gamegolf.com/player/ncgolfer101/round/2235181 Played in my gross match play tournament. Shot 69 and won 4&3. Hit some loose irons on the par 3's but hit some great wedges. Only converted a couple of them to birdies though. One bogey which I had to take an unplayable out of a bush. Other than that it was a very stress-free round.
