  1. I sit in bowling alleys watching my son compete most of my spare time.......... I have no regrets....I do miss playing golf, but I also enjoy watching my son thrive as he competes... He's only 15, and he's one of the top youth bowlers in the country.......this is his finishing off his 7th 300/perfect game in competition......a 15yr old kid..this is crazy. I figure that I will have the rest of my life to play golf....................for now, I don't play much golf. I am OK with this.......when I say "not much", I played only about 70+rounds in 2017.....this is like taking the year off by my standards......(playing 50% of the time) Every minute of my vacation time is spent traveling the country so he can compete...... He bowls in all the big national youth events....he holds his own and is one of the top kids to beat. Very proud of him......

    Forum Profile Handicap Indices....

    down to 1.7 and I've only played about 60 rounds for the year...I usually play double this amount by Labor Day weekend. I am more than satisfied by my play. I am about ready to shut things down as I am a "non-golfer" now by my own definition. Looking forward to playing 3 days over labor day weekend, but I won't be playing much after. Watching my son compete doing his "thang".......this is my priority. Once he graduates, I'll get back at golf hard core...for now, I am going with the flow. I will never be as hard-core as I once was because I bowl in 3 leagues a week now. That certainly limits weekday evening golf for 35 weeks............LOL

    Carts in your yard? Suggestions

    Build a Wall....err...sorry, I meant "Fence In" your yard. LOL

    What keeps you from playing more golf?

    I haven't played as much in the past couple years.......My teenage son is active and I never miss watching him do his "THANG". My daughter is already grown and moved out, and my wife and I will be empty nesters in 2-3 years. It's all good! I'll have the rest of my life to "AMP UP" the golf schedule. LOL Golf has never been an issue with my wife.... If it wasn't for my son's activities, my normal routine is playing at first light on the weekends, and 2-3 evenings during the week...it's never been a wife issue. An easy route to 125-175 rounds per year. Plus... I think she's happy to have me out of the house a few evenings......LOL Because I play early on the weekends, my weekend golf schedule is never a problem. I'm normally home by 10-11am on the weekends, so it's not like it kills the weekend plans.

    Do you keep close watch on your score during a round?

    I don't even try to think about it, but I always know where I stand in relation to par at any given point during the round. I don't even need to write my scores down.

    What's the Hottest You'd Walk 18?

    I only ride these days, but was a dedicated walker for 10-15 years. Back in the day when I walked, there was no temp limit!! I used a pull-cart so carrying a large bottle of water wasn't an issue. A 1 liter bottle was a minimum, and I'd drink it down and refill at every opportunity along the way. Another staple from my walking days..... I carried a rosin bag to dry the hands as needed. My water bottles have grown larger with old age... Even though I ride now, I carry a 64oz bottle of water. LOL

    Best Shot of the Week

    My 2nd eagle of the year is in the books! I was traveling and played a course I have never played before and the fairways were firm bermuda grass and the balls were rolling-out nicely! I gained 20+ instant yards playing this golf course.....LOL...that's always fun! I know long is relative, but I was hitting it far...."for me". Par5: 518yds...... I had 218yds to the pin and flew a 5-wood to 10'....made the putt. I missed several short putts that day, but made the one I wanted the most!! Good fun!

    I'm not easily impressed…

    too funny...............

    How many three-putts (or more) did you have today?

    Nevermind above........ I didn't even play golf today! HAhahaha... WT...Heck!

    Wind, weather, and handicaps..

    Learn to play in wind better. We all play in wind.. whether your average score is 68, 78, or 88.....we are all in the same "BOAT" so to speak.

    How many three-putts (or more) did you have today?

    I consider putting a strength........................3-putt avoidance also depends on the course you play! With that said......I apologize because I don't have definitive stats....on 3-putts.....per course. I do know this....I can play 72 holes without a 3-putt......................."depending on the course"..... This is a hard question to answer accurately!!! On my home course.........YES!!!!! I can play a 72 hole tourney...and never 3-putt.....maybe........... it happens though.......................................

    I'm not easily impressed…

    Hahahahaha.........I get you!! I am feeling the love...thank you! You know how I am about knowing course details!! The tees we played.....par72.......6577yds... 72.5cr 137 slope... this guy was playing from the wrong tees! (tips are 7133yds 75.1cr 141slope)...... it was fun to watch for sure. His 1 bogey was a 220yd par3.....pull hook into a hazard...... then got up and down from a place had had no business getting up and down from...LOL........he hit an amazing high pitch to just get inside of 10'...then made the bogey putt. Good stuff!!!!

    I'm not easily impressed…

    I "paired-up" and played with this guy last weekend and it was fun to watch him play........ it's not often I play with a stranger that impresses me. Physically speaking....he was maybe 5-8" and didn't look athletic, but he consistently carried the ball near 300yds on wet fairways after hard rains......... he birdied the first 4 holes! The first 3 were all shortish putts....... then he just missed on 4 on the wrong side of the pin.......got a bad bounce and went over and was FK'd............. he proceeded pitch from "dead zone"....hit the flag and jarred it.... (it would have rolled 20 feet past had he not jarred it) After birding the first 4....... He had to birdie at least 4 more..... I am pretty sure he had a career day and it was one of those easy rounds.......made it look easy.... I dont' know what he scored for sure, but he had to be at least 7-8 under...... it was fun to pair-up with a guy like this.... for sure... I can only remember 1 bogey.....I wasn't counting, but I think he made 7-8 birdies....LOL.... dude was on fire.... that was fun to watch up close!! I've played 1,000s of rounds over the years with a variety of golfers..... I am pretty sure this was the lowest round I have seen first hand pairing-up for a random weekend golf round...........fun stuff!
