  1. Golf Sunglasses

    Another vote for Oakley. Been very happy with them. As others have said, the lenses are not too dark and do a good job just lightening things up . Sometimes, I take them off to read greens if it is early or late in the day and the sun isn't as bright.
  2. Your Favourite Form of Punishment

    Voted sand. I've grown accustomed and fond of sand down here in NC. Like @klineka, I enjoy the golf in the sandhills and pines. There is less water hazards here, which is fine with me. I like the look/constrast of sand against the green of the course.
  3. Ideal time for a round

    In the morning by myself - around 2:30 walking. I don't mind a little more if I'm hitting some extra shots and practicing a bit. Regular foursome - Four hours. Anything longer (without waiting) than that, even everyone walking and on a 6500-ish tees, is long to me. In carts, I would expect to be able to play a little faster but I've found carts don't help as much as you think.
  4. As bad as he sprayed it off the tee, for him to finish as well as he did and not have one round over par is pretty encouraging. Plus he's pain free. Don't know if you could have expected or wanted more out of Tiger. I was just hoping for him to make the cut and finish 4 rounds healthy.
  5. Wearing a Wedding Ring while Playing

    I've always worn mine and it's never bothered me. However, if it bothers someone and the wife insists, I like @RichWW2's solution with a silicone ring.
  6. All Dye courses for me. The Ocean Course at Kiawah was the most difficult I've played. Wind was howling and you can't miss it in certain spots. Locally, another Dye course...The Dye Course at Sedgefield (formerly called The Cardinal) is one of the toughest in our area. It's harder than the Ross course that the pros play on (even though the ratings are slightly higher on the Ross) in my opinion. Last, the Dye course at Barefoot Landing...played from the tips is really challenging. Long and hard to get at pins....at least it was for me.
  7. Thanks. Lazy on my part.
  8. Who’s most likely to win their first Major in 2018?

    Voted Fowler but nearly voted Someone Else. The "field" is always a good bet.
  9. Didn't mind Breed...he was a bit too high energy but that's kinda necessary for TV. Just a little too much for me like he just took a handful of shots of expresso. Will be interested to see what type of format that Foley and McCormick are used. Breed was (I believe) 100% a TV instructor. These guys have a bunch of students/players they have to manage as well.
  10. How many rounds did you play in 2017? Avg score?

    Only had 21 portable rounds (I played a lot of solo 18 and 9 hole rounds) with a high of 68 and a low of 68. Average score of 74.4. If I included those solo rounds the average number might have dropped a bit. For some reason I play better if I know it's only 9 holes. Sometimes I have to start thinking that way out on the course and not worry about the numbers.
  11. What are Your 2018 Golf Goals?

    Always fun to reflect on the year past and what I want to accomplish for the next year. Break 70 multiple times - Only happened once last year. I had stretches where I should have done it more but there was always a hole or two that ruined it. Improved driving - I feel like this is one of the weaker spots in my game. It hasn't been consistent over the past few years but is definitely headed in the right direction. I want to keep that momentum going. Sharpen the wedges - I'm not good enough from inside 130. Need to be a lot better. Keep posting in "My Swing" thread - It was really helpful last year and I there are a few pieces I'm working on. Video is always an eye opener and the best way to track work on the swing. More tournaments - My schedule last year was not conducive to tournament play. Hope that changes this year...going to look for more opportunities to play competitive rounds.
  12. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

    Just trying to measure of his rationality. Call it the Jar Jar test.
  13. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

    Did you like Jar Jar Binks as well?
  14. Predict Tiger's 2018 Season

    Short game is a bit ugly. I think if he wins it will be later in the year.
  15. Predict Tiger's 2018 Season

    Definitely going zero on majors. I'm tempted on one tour victory...very tempted. Current over/under in vegas is 1.5 wins. I'd go under that prop bet.
