  1. Way to hot in Alabama right now. From a friend who lives in the area, over 100 heat index, no fans in attendance, and they cannot get any volunteers.
  2. Congrats on your natty. What will that Dr. Pepper guy do now? Minus the price, golf is simply not cool anymore. It will take another TW to get the fringe folks interested.
  3. Golf is a rich man's game, always will be. The riddle is, want more folks to play, but then complain about slow play. I don't have the answer.
  4. You too! So many times I see folks pissed off as they are loading their clubs in the car. Listen, unless you are getting paid to play golf, have fun. My son (3) all he wants to do is play ball. We have a blast.
  5. Probably not good enough to give a good response, but I like the firm feel. I try to use the rule of 12 (13) when chipping, so I don't want the ball to check up. Putts feel the same. All guess work outside of 5 ft anyway.
  6. Love dirty country while playing. Certain songs get me fired up to make a shot. Played with my son today, and work phone has no songs Technology is getting so outrageous, my best friend basically has surround sound. 2 posts in one day, prob a record!
  7. I play Top-Flite's D2 Straight, for no other reason than I like the price and the box. (blue) I pick up NXT's, and give the Pro V1's from my yard to my buddies, who have no business playing them. If I can finish hole # 1 tomorrow, with an NXT, I will break my record. 54 holes with the same ball. Old record a TF Straight.
  8. Objects in the rear view mirror might appear closer than they actually actually are.

  10. Been playing with some friends of my brother on a weekly basis recently, and they asked me the same thing. Told them some observations. Chip with something other than a PW/SW. Quit taking soooo many practice swings. 1 max, 2 on "feel" shots Quit lining up putts from both directions. Play more than you practice. The best piece of advice though that got me over the hump. Act like you care. Tuck in your shirt. Play in clean shoes. Assign a place in your bag for each club, and keep it. (Big on this one). Repair pitch marks and "sand" divots. Do this and don't kee
  11. Interesting responses. Play in a league for the chamber. Our team is paid for by the company. Thursdays @ 4:30. Everyon e on the team knows that if both machines are down, nobody will golf that day. Has not happened on a Thur yet. I'm 38, 2 others @ 22. One at 40 , and alternate at 39. Most of the folks in the league are from the plant next to us and younger guys. Not a good representative sample though. South of I-10 in AL. Lot more laid back down here. Semi-related. Most salary folks, myself included, never take our full vacation at my plant.
  12. Bought the flatso 5 last night, and used it in the first league play event of the year today. No practice, and was completely blown away. Did not miss anything inside 10 ft. Amazing, and did really not feel weird. Almost impossible to get "wristy".
  13. 1 bottle of water 4 beers if playing 9 - will play to 9, then one for the ride home (on course). 6 beers if playing 18 Trying to capture the 3-4 beer buzz the entire round. Football season, will bring a 12 pack and listen to pregame on radio Golfed a few times with a box of wine, interesting effects.
  14. Oh my, how times have changed. McDonalds had a "General Lee" happy meal. Does this really bother you? FTW, I am not a bubba fan either.
  15. Pretty good thread. I read about half, so sorry if this has been posted. Take pride in your appearance. Had a golf pro point out that I had on a collared shirt that looked like I was still in college, frayed collar, possibly some holes. Untucked into a pair of shorts that looked like I had just done yard work. Shoes covered in mud/grass. Next round, showed up in a freshly laundered shirt, tucked into a nice pair of shorts, and cleaned my shoes. 1st time I ever broke 80. Dress that way all the time now. Also, he asked me how many times I repaired my divots. Never was my ans
