  1. Sorry haven’t been on here in ages. I’m chamberlain golf coach. Closed range in temple terrace and the on in north Tampa.
  2. I walk as much as possible. Today was the first day going 18 holes exhausted me. Of course it was 87 degrees and 80% humidity. I was out of energy on the last 3-4 holes. That’s usually what happens in Florida this time of year. Walk the front 9...ride the back☹️. By the way...still walked it with the wife in 3 hours and 10 minutes.
  3. Doesn't seem to have any effect on my club yet. Hopefully I can get out during spring break because I don't really have anything else to do now. On the plus side...the seafood dinner is still a go for tonight!🦞🍺😀

    2020 Masters

    Well....there goes that trip. Hopefully I can still get my $ back for the hotel I no longer need.
  5. I too have the Powerbeats Pro. Much better for me than the Airpods. I also think the sound is better.
  6. So glad you posted this. I live next door to a doctor and nurse and they have both told me the same thing. I"m wondering why the media has jumped on this so hard? Elections? I don't understand.
  7. Not on golf....my 401 however....
  8. Not really golf courses but a few driving ranges in Tampa have closed up the past few years. It's sucks because the golf course where the golf team plays (that I coach) doesn't have a range so we basically are now reduced to hitting balls into a net. Kinda hard to get a good sense of where the ball is going when hitting into a net.
  9. I've been a bit a slump lately too. I have been hovering around 80 (77,78,79). I usually don't get too upset about it this time of year because I am unable to play as much (usually once a week). I tend to lose my short game and my putting comes and goes during a round. I don't hit the irons as crisp either. Once we "spring ahead" next week I will be able to get out after school and play 9 holes a couple times a week. Usually my game returns after a couple of weeks of regular play. We've had a windy winter here in Florida so when I do get out I'm usually playing in 10-20 mph. winds which doesn't help your scorecard either. One piece of advice I would give to you is that I always go out and play with no expectations in regard to score. I have found that if I don't expect to play well (shoot a low score) is tends to happen more often. It's a cliche but "one swing at a time" is my motto.
  10. Might go over and watch some of the Valspar. Maybe.
  11. Callaway Rogue. Mizuno JPX 919 Hot Metal Tour. Right now I play the Mizuno's.
  12. I read it. I'm weeping. By the way, I like to play Caledonia too.
  13. Not sure if this is in the topic zone but....when I was younger and working in the golf business, there would always be some some "unofficial" events that took place during the year. Some were stroke play events, some were two balls and even some scrambles. These were always with no handicap so the issue of sandbagging didn't enter the equation. You would throw down your $100.00, $50.00, or whatever and you played for the pot. I played in some events where the winning team/individual made in the thousands of dollars. Of course...this was all "off the books". A lot of gambling always took place in the area where I started in the golf business. I don't see much of that anymore (in my area). Used to be, there were always some type of $ games going on. Those were usually handicap events.
  14. Yes. I was going to take a caddie. I would rather just carry or roll but I thought "what the hell", just walk around and check out the views. I played Pebble Beach about 20 years ago so I'm looking forward to seeing it. Hopefully I can play well but really not so much worried about that. This is the first time for the wife so she will eventually decide on a caddie or carry ourselves. We have a couple days of tickets for the Masters on Tuesday and Wednesday so we are gonna hang out there for a few days and then back home before our trip to Pebble. If anybody knows or any good wine vineyards in the area, please let me know. We are hoping to take a day and try to go to one or two if they aren't too far away.
  15. No way...Gold all the way. Just gonna try to enjoy the scenery. 🙂
