  1. The evidence for you is the Bible. But this isn't going to be enough for you, because, like most people who demand evidence over and over and over, the real problem is not the lack of evidence but an unwillingness to honestly investigate and then believe the evidence that is clearly there because it doesn't happen to fit your presuppositions. Namely, you would have to declare that Jesus Christ is Lord and Judge of the living and the dead. Just take one fulfilled prophecy whose predating it's fulfillment is not under question: Micah 5:2, which says the messiah would be born in Bethlehem. W
  2. 69 at Crystal Falls in Leander. Couldn't really get anything going, just had to play scrappy. Left 4 shots out there plain and clear. Handicap 9 17 13 11 7 3 5 15 1 10 16 8 12 4 18 14 6 2 Par 5 3 4 4 4 4 5 3 4 36
  3. Played a quick 9 from the reds. So much rain, so much scoring... Fired at everything. Getting much more used to going deep. Crystal Falls Golf Course HOLE 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 TOTAL 35.5/124 Red 403 88 288 303 319 335 432 106 340 2,614 Handicap 5
  4. I tried to follow most of the thread. You seem like you've made some significant strides since the first video. Is your clubface a bit shut and your left arm a bit too slack? I think that might be contributing to the "swing it inside and reroute OTT move". Nice improvement in the hip action though. Your right hip actually moves back and up compared with the first video. Good change there.
  5. That's interesting. I actually tried this. My first set of irons when I started trying to get better were Mizuno MP-67s. I still play them. I wouldn't say it helped me get better more than it simply made the game more frustrating than it needed to be at first. I thought it would make it clear when I hit bad shots and good shots. It certainly did that, but the problem is, and anyone can attest to this: bad shots are really clear regardless of the type of club used. It took me about 6 years of work before I could hit the sweet spot consistently on them. None of that improvement was rela
  6. Wow. That's lame. You just simply don't need to hit a PW 158. If I try to do that now the ball zips off the front of the green nearly every time. Not sure why I thought this was so great 3 years ago. It certainly didn't help me break par and it got harder to do consistently as the round got on. It's been a few years, so here's what I'm around carry on full playing swings now: 56* - 105y 52* - 120y 48* - 133y 9 - 148y 8 - 165y 7 - 180y 6 - 196y 5 - 210 21* hybrid - 225 18* 5w - 230-245 13.5* 3W - 235-260 Driv
  7. Hey guys. Thanks for reaching out, Corey. I live in Leander off #6 at Crystal Falls. I can get around town pretty easily, but a twilight 9 at Crystal is always an option. I'd love to get together with some folks in the area....especially some grinders with good attitudes, regardless of skill level. Other than regulars at my club, I don't really know many golfers around ATX.
  8. I hooked up with a random twosome one weekday. After going even par on the first two holes, I got really dialed in and hit the approach on #3 to 4 feet, #4 to 1 foot, #5 to 1 foot, #6 to 4 feet, and hit the next long par-5 #7 in two. I hit a terrible shot to 15 feet on the par-3 8th and hit the next approach on #9 to less than 2 feet from 150. The guys were just really shocked and silent except to keep asking "What's your handicap again?". That run was pretty memorable to me. More so for the missed 4-footers, though, unfortunately. Day before Christmas eve, I was out in the freezin
  9. Thankfully, she wasn't home.
  10. I was working on some swing speed training and had my favorite driver with a medics power meter attached to it. I took a fast swing and tried to pay attention to my grip to see how much tension was there near the bottom. Well, there was none. The club and sensor flew out of my hands, up into the air about 50 feet, over my house and nearly hit a state troopers patrol car. It pretty much shattered the club and the sensor. What a waste of over 400 bucks.
  11. -1 for 9 holes at my home course Crystal Falls GC in Leander. It included an ace on the par-3 second! Both of my boys were with me at the time. It was pretty special and a pretty spectacular shot. Been throwing darts for a while now, so I was wondering when it would happen. Dropped 4 inches past the cup and bounced back into it. My youngest (5 yr) said, "Did you get a birdie?" I said, "No. I did even better. I got an eagle!" He said, "Oh. Can we call it a Sea Eagle?" I said sure, since we just learned about sea eagles.
  12. Shot 36 at Crystal Falls in Leander, Tx (72.6/126) Hit it stiff to a foot on #4 and #9. Hit it to 4 feet on #3, and #6 and two-putted both. Regardless, first + handicap performance in a while. Need to work on putting < 6 feet, apparently....
  13. Best shot was a hole-out from 140 with a PW. Best swing in the last month. Clubface was controlled all the way to the finish. Balance was perfectly solid. The ball got slightly wind-battered, but held it's line.
  14. Lately working on the following: Striking: * Staying in inclination longer. Right shoulder tends to go left and up too quickly on the downswing, working on getting it down and through more. * Left foot pressure at impact. Trying to feel a heavy left foot at impact, keeping from falling forward (and losing posture) and having the weight centered on the foot by practicing with the toes lifted off the ground. * Relaxing more on the backswing. I tend to get tense and the backswing shortens, especially under pressure. * Left armpit pressure point maintained longer. Als
  15. Played a full 9 holes for the first time in a while. One of the golf course employees was playing with me and keeping score so I was just focusing on making good swings and maintaining my inclination since it's been a while and that's always the first thing to go when my body isn't well conditioned. Shot low 40 something on the front nine. Didn't strike it too poorly, maybe 7/10, but the course was just so tight. Some of my landing areas were /emoticons/tongue.png"> It was great fun.
