  1. just oiled up the clubs to play my first nine of the year yesterday. Over the winter I wached alot of golf on golf tv and alot of it talked about getting a lower handicap. I never had a handicap my whole life. When I sauntered into the proshop to see if I had to pay to play, i thought "I am going to ask to get a handicap and how low I can get". The snake oil salesman behind the counter told me it was going to COST over $40 to get a handicap, or maybe even more AND I had to put in scores! (I thought golf was posed to be fun NOT WORK). I thought to myself "I never had one before and never had any problems, why would I need one SO bad now". I let him finish off his sales pitch before I told him, "he buddy, how about I give you $30 and we just forget I asked about the handicap". Long story short I saved at least $10 and didn't get a handicap, so i don't have to worry about putting in scores. Love to hear if anyone on here has fellen for this trick. Decided not to play that day too, because it was pretty dark already.
  2. I am a dog man and I am sure everyone on here is to. I used to play alone a lot and I went to play last weekend and I saw my dog at the course and I thought, what the hell, I will let him tag along. He did good and it was fun having somebody there, nothing is worse then hitting a hole in one and not having anybody there to see it trinkle into the whole. Anybody else ever take a dog with them while they golf? Please don't reply if you don't or take another species of pet. before any body gets PC on me, NO i don't let my dog run around on the course and disrespect other players or the game. the only reason he was there was because he likes to dig around on the cemetary that runs along side the golf course.
  3. I think my life is changed after the new VR Golf game. Can't remember what headset it was, but it was the black one. It is so cool, if you ever have a chance to try it out, do it. makes you looks at the games in an new way, eye opener to say the least. I can tell you right now that I can't wait to try it out to see if it beats the hype. A few suggestions I would have if I ever played it would prolly be: 1. reality mold - have the option to have the vr player wear smudged glasses (fingerprints), have your cell ring and say it is from your aunt or your wife, have the sun shine real bright into your eyes a lot 2. graveyard mold - great for halloween golf, did it once in real life and it was one of the worst times I ever had, but would like to try it again 3. sports mold - you can pick your favorite nba team and wear their jersey. also the golf ball is a baseball that is blown up to the size of a basketball, and the whole is at ten feet like a basketball rim, just use your hands too
  4. HI cipher, thanks for the advice. I just went out and Titleist CB 7 iron and tried it but I hate it bad. The guy I bouhgt it from won't take it back. Can you mail me a check for $25, since he won;t give me a refund. Not sure how is libel here but I guess you would be? I will go out and buy the other ones later thanks in advance, i love and support people who stand behind their products
  5. I have a lot of pride but first and most I am a man,only god can change that. So sometimes you have to step up to the plate. this time I think i hit a homer. I have been struggling a little with my pre backswing, mostly set up. I saw the european kid, Bryson, who wears the sherlock homes hat. I am NOT a fan of his style or personality, but he does hit it good with that iron set he hits with. I decided to go that route, even though I am NOT a fan of his and prolly won't be anytime this year. Since my 7 iron is my favorite club I thought that would be the best one to do. It took me a few months on ebay but I finally got 8 of the same 7-irons (rocket balls) to use. Not sure how he does his but since all the irons are the same I got some of gary player black knight iron covers that has the numbers on them so i will know which 7-iron to use for each iron. My coach says I still take to much time to choose my club, even though they are exactly the same (driver is not a 7-iron, i use a 3 wood for that). I played some hoes the other day and went lights out with them. Has anyone else tried to go this route? I like it this far but the hat is drawing to much attention.
  6. Me and mine relocated to california recently. I had a ton of friends back home but i dont have any here. NOT because i cant get any, but i dont want to try much. I need a body to play golf with. Somebody who is willing tk take a beeting on the course but shake hands like an adult after. I live close to rancho san joachin. Pm me but if u suck real bad not intristed. Must have your own clubs
  7. I was talking to my coach and he was telling me that the only difference between me and the pros right now is that the pros know exactly how far they hit all those clubs. So we went to the driving range and he stood out there as i hit golf balls so he could measure. Teh range balls look beat up but they are pinnacle golds. I was hitting my 5 iron about 400 feet (yes feet, we ARE in America) on the range. But when I got on the course and played wiht my game balls, Dunlop ProZ ecks, I was hitting my 5 iron 376 feet on average. Has anybody else noticed that the range balls tending to go a lot farther? My old pen pal said my coach was prob just giving me wrong distances but I don't think so because he is really good at eyeballing distances adn guessing peoples weight
  8. You did the right thing by making him look like the terd he is. I just wish i was there to dish out sone "justice" on his smirky smile. But u never know if the other guy is touched and he might lose it if u confront him. Best to use a common vodoo doll with almost no features so it can be used on anyone u want. Not to do permanent damage but to maybe give him bubbleguts or instant boner that wont go away. I dont want to fight your fight, just be creative and think of your own illness

    golf fight

    I mostly play with my wife now. The other day i got to play for the first time with the pro (he sucks) at Ratty Pond. What on earth is the "proper" name for dimples on the golf ball? Everytime i asked him how many dimples is best or how they make the dimples or why are there dimples - just to save money on materials? That ringer dinger whould just roll his eyes and look away like he just hated looking at me cause i dont know all the golf terms. Is their a book or person that has every golf term that u need to know to make it in the higher social circles? I really dont want to have to throttle this guy, but if that is what he wants id be more than happy to beat him into bolivia
  10. I no this is prollt a long shot, because people are from all over the state but did anyone find a green hat last columbus day? One that is like a tobaggan on top but has a bill built in. Except this on the bill goes all the way around the hat. Because i found one just like that and wanted to see if anyone else ran accross one too? The guy that was wearing it when i found it looked untrustworthy and i thought it might be "happening" elsewere

    Hot golf wives

    I am trying to figure out at one ranking a pro golfer or any golfer that is ranked gets a hot sexy wife. Anyway, I guess what I am asking is there a list or a database of hi res photos of players wives? If so, what is the ranking cut off for the hot ones? And what rankings are used by the women to select the guy(fedex, world rankings, race from dubai)? What about the web.com guys? Has any players ever switched wives when their rankings rose or dropped (significantly)? I need the info, beacuse I am going to do the danplan, but I don't want to be the #1 guy, I just want like a (6/10). I love how the golfchannel refuses to report on anything like this that has math involved because they think we are all heatherns
  12. I have been getting more and more into Sasquatch hunthing/tracking. We just called together an d held a meeting for everybody in town who was interested to tell us about any times they saw a sasquatch or skunk ape. It was priddy pathetic how almost no one showed up becase they are scared of being prosicuted by the media, and the ones who did show up where quacks . I am sure everyone has already seen the story but a few years ago, maybe early 80s a 4some got attacked at Brandon's Dunes up in the Nrtheast. The foursome was found in the woods close to the garden shack and all of them had their britches and briefs torn off or taken off. When the golf course worker found them they was real sweatty and startled. they told the worker that his loud music on his golf cart scared way the primate and they thanked him for saving them from the beast (thank god he shoed up when he did) and they still had enought time to finish up the charity scramble. Please add your encounter: Also, just throwing this out there since this forum is 21+. Most amateurs over swing on their backswing - its a fact so i don't care if you disagree. Anyway, why not make a device, like a long string that goes from the handle of your club to (the tip of your most sensitive body part), but make the string only long enough to support a compact backswing?

    Red face

    I am not the kind of person that goes online and bashes pros. I always hate it when i read a thread about how so and so did such and such and how they suck or how ugly they or their pets are. It is just not my "thang". I think the upmost respect should be show to those who are on tv day in and day out giving their all to entertain us. I am sure I am not the only one that gets pissed with the online bashing and mean comments, specially to pro we should look up to and kiss their tootsies, because they are great athletes and most of them are great people who DESERVE respect. Just as a general rule don't bash people on forums, it just makes you look bad and petty and insecure. Anyway, what type of sun block does Phil Mickelson use?
  14. Not sure why, but I get the yips when I play with strangers or strange people. It just makes me nervous and I know it is just real silly. The other day I was playing solo and I was on the fourth tee. I was over the ball and a cart with two super hot people pulled up behind the tee and was waiting for me to hit. I just stood there over the ball and waited for them to drive by. But since they was playing, they just wanted me to hit and get the hell out of the way. I just stood there some more thinking - how the hell did I get myself in this situation and what could I do to resolve it. I just stood there frozen for liek 5 minutes and couldn't pull the trigger. They pulled up closer and I just kept my head down real hard. I heard one of them ask me if I was all right. I was thinking "yeah, I'm fine dummy. I always do this! OH GOD!!!!!!" I finally hit but my palms were so sweatty that the club sliped out of my hands during my backswing and I jsut froze again for it seemed like eons. By that time there were like 12 people wainting for me the get out of the way. I checked out "Zen Putting", did that help anybody. Or maybe i shoudl get one of the new Jetspeed drivers.
  15. I was not as good when I started as I am now. The first round I played I shot a 92 (played 1 hole scaled to 18). Last week when I played I shot a 76 (no holes played, scaled from previous experience)
