  1. One more voice for the "pick it up and give it to the pro shop if no one claims it sooner." We have one guy in my area who went farther than that: A buddy of mine left a Mizuno iron in a tree (he didn't intentionally throw it there, for whatever reason he let go of the club during his swing). This was before the season officially started (during a couple unseasonably warm days in Feb) so the pro shop wasn't open yet. He went back the next day with a friend and a ladder but couldn't find the club in the tree. So he asked me to swing by the course to see if I could see it. When I got there the club wasn't in the tree and it wasn't on the ground. I had to pass the pro-shop building to get back to my car and there, laying on the deck, was his club.
  2. Airplane geek thread

    Is it me or is it silly to have an "airplane geek" thread and no pictures of... ya know... airplanes!? I'll try to maximize my aircraft-to-picture ratio here and post a few from the museum at Boeing field in Seattle and the Evergreen Air Museum. I went to both back in 2015...
  3. Why is America so fat?

    I rarely hit fastfood anymore but I recently went through a Wendy's drive-thru and asked for "medium." I still can't get over how big that freakin' cup was.
  4. Congrats! Sounds like you recovered really well from that bad hole.
  5. That's what I don't understand when I see that Ericsson was all excited about Dan's attempt. His (Ericsson's) paper on deliberate practice even mentioned that:
  6. You can express your excitement for doing something without that expression being an implicit "suck it" to those who aren't. If the golfers not playing in the Solheim Cup can't be happy (or if not happy, at least indifferent) for their peers who were chosen, that is their problem.
  7. Parity on tour

    Why would there be less drama? I was glued to my chair for the last 9 holes (and playoff) of the Master's this year. For me, the fact that Rose and Garcia are buddies (at least friendly) and were giving each other fist bumps actually made it better; two guys matching each other shot-for-shot and and acknowledging each other's play made for great viewing.
  8. This article says he was allowed to drop so it must have been found in the hazard.
  9. League Players vs Regular Players - Etiquette

    It sounds like the only thing you can do is tell the pro shop that you're taking your golf someplace else. At my local course, the leagues stay on 9 holes, leaving the other 9 open for play.
  10. My Swing (krupa)

    I have not, but I will now. Thanks!
  11. My Swing (krupa)

    High-level: My shots off the tee, my shots are all over the place. I think my problem is in some fundamentals, especially my grip. My grip, especially with the 3-wood and driver, is wonky. On a practice swing it feels fine, when I set up to the ball and do the backswing something is off. I don't know how to describe it; I don't know if it's just a bad backswing or my grip is in a different position or is lighter or tighter but at the top of my backswing the club doesn't feel right in my hands. I have, on occasion, even hurt my left thumb trying to swing these long clubs.
  12. What a rough day :(

    This happens to me all the time. I usually don't bother to keep score anymore. I pay attention on a per-hole basis but not writing down a number or caring about a final score means I'm more likely to shake off a bad hole and play better for the rest of the round. And, if I don't play better for the rest of the round, who cares? I'm not keeping score and it's a beautiful day and course and I'm not going to let something as silly as golf ruin my free time!
  13. My Swing (krupa)

    Still dancing between wanting to practice and improve and just go out and play. So I went to the driving range today and recorded my swing. My big problem this summer has been getting off the tee. If I can get on or close to the fairway, I'm all right my irons. So here are some unedited videos of 5 iron and 3 wood. once I started thinking about a slow backswing I was hitting the 3 wood pretty well. When I got home and looked at the video, I was surprised at how fast the backswing still was. My "miss" these days is everything. On the first tee, I hit a duck hook. on the second a big 'ole slice. On the third, I'll set up for the slice and hit a laser straight into a tree. You get the idea and why I have decided to make a couple trips to the range every week for the rest of the season. (And yes, the lines/angles aren't great. I can barely see my phone's screen in the sun.)
  14. I'm interested but can't watch it while I'm at work. The scoreboard is just numbers so not much to comment on, except that Grayson Murray had the first tee time (7:20) and it looked like he finished after 12:30. Is that correct or was that lag between when he finished and the pgatour.com leaderboard got updated?
  15. Is this the same long drive competition that Bubba was all pissy about 2-3 years ago? If so, I hope he's gotten over himself and gives it a try:
