  1. I'm either playing the Cut four piece ball or the Chromesoft. If I"m out playing a "who cares" round of golf just to work on some things, then it's the Cut but if I'm playing for a reason...it's the Chromesoft.

    Overrated/Underrated (Golf) Topic

    I'm going with overrated also. Iacas...sounds like your a little more familiar with him than most people. I used to work in the golf business in the Orlando area and I always thought that some of the "Army" might be a little disappointed in the guy if they knew of some of the off the course activities. I personally don't care about that, and he was one of the nicest guys you could meet at the 19th hole and just listen/talk too. I just always thought that his playing record was not as good as it could have been. I too would not put him in the Jack Nicklaus, Ben Hogan, Tiger Woods category but just below based on his playing record. I also think that he gets a little too much credit for "inventing" the modern PGA tour as far as TV and money. Just my opinion.

    Betting???

    Yep....golf is made for betting. Skins, Nassau, wolf, I'll play just about anything. I don't bet a lot of $ but you gotta have something to make it interesting and competitive. Usually the guy who wins ends up paying for all the beverages when we are done anyway so it's not like your really losing much.
  5. I just tell everyone to not buy me anything golf related. When it comes to golf...I just would rather get it myself so I know that it's right. Over the years I have gotten a number of boxes of golf balls that I will/have not ever used.

    Sad Day (Not the New Coach)

    Too lax with Florida boosters. The "Bull Gator" boosters didn't give a sh%t about Urban Meyer "enabling criminality". They did care about national championships. Urban Meyer has fallen on the sword for some of the stuff this year. Maybe he just decided no matter how much he liked coaching football he is just sick of the crap that goes on around it. That I can understand. God Bless all the guys who still do it because it's much different than it was 16 years ago. How do you not support your assistant coaches and players? That's what the people who have never done it (coached) will never understand. Did he have blinders on when it came to Zach Smith....maybe....do I understand it.....yea.

    Sad Day (Not the New Coach)

    Yes....disorderly conduct and criminal trespassing. By the way....the trespassing was for dropping his kids off in front of her house. I don't see anywhere in there a mention of domestic abuse? So I guess he, uh, plead guilty to disorderly conduct? Uh....uh.......uh....????? As I stated earlier....I don't think the truth about this will ever come out. Maybe we can get the answer from the President at Ohio State. Then again...what does any of this have to do with Urban Meyer's coaching record at Ohio State? I understand that some people just don't like Urban just like some people don't like Nick Saban. I have been a football coach for 16 years and all I am saying (as an Ohio State fan) is that he has been a great coach, recruiter, and graduated his players. All the coaches I have met from Ohio State have been good guys who love to coach college kids and they all try to do what is in the best interest of their players (same as probably 99% of all the coaches in America).

    Sad Day (Not the New Coach)

    By the way.....How did Zach Smith make out in court over his domestic abuse case? Never hear much about that. I wonder why?

    Oldest Club in Your Bag

    My Scotty Futura 5 putter. Although my hybrids are still Taylor Made Rocketbalz. Not sure which is older?

    All I know is the more greens I hit in regulation, the better my score will be. I read somewhere.. that the old saying "drive for show and putt for dough" is no longer the case. That being said., I have always thought that I don't care how good a putter you are if you are 75 yards behind me off the tee and in the woods. So I gotta say....UNDERRATED.
  12. I know that even in Florida...cooler mornings affect the ball flight. As the day warms up, it goes further. I usually forget this for about the first few holes. 😡

    Ever Played While It Was Snowing?

    I remember playing on New Years Eve (day) in Michigan and getting to about #16 when the snow started. By the time we got off 18 is was starting to accumulate. By the time I got home (about 30 Minutes), there was about an inch on the ground. Pretty good blizzard ensued. When we started, it was in the upper 40's and the sun was shining.
  14. Not sure if it I would call it "quirky" but I like playing Brooksville CC (In Brooksville, Fl.), because the course starts out, on the front 9, as your standard country club (pretty straight forward) and then completely changes on the back 9. The back 9 plays through an old phosphate mine area and you get some great elevation changes and some tricky shots. It's like playing two completely different golf courses.

    Different Handicap for Walkers?

    I'm not sure I shoot any better scores walking or riding. I would rather walk and I feel like I play better when I walk but I think if I checked my scores, it would be about the same. I don't feel tired when I'm done unless it's starting to get really hot (and then I usually ride). It's just now getting to the point where the weather has cooled down enough to walk here in the Tampa area.
