  1. My son is my regular golfing partner. A couple years ago I was better/longer than him. Last year he passed me in scoring and length. Now he kicks my butt. Dang teenagers. They grow so fast.
  2. I've got Ping G30s and have been very happy with them. I'm thinking about upgraded to a more recent set in the Ping G line. But that's just because I've had them a long time, and I'm getting an itchy trigger finger.
  3. Here are the tee shots of the foursome in front of us (@iacas et. al.), my son, and @GolfLug My son's approach shot on #16 Jake's tee shot on #18
  4. 55-59. Isn't that summer weather in Erie?
  5. My son and I are interested. I gotta check with the significant other. Also, my son just had his appendix removed, so he'll be rusty and sore. But it ought to be fun, and I've heard great things about the course.
  6. I picked 15 out of the Sweet 16. Pretty fly. My Final Four are LSU, Michigan, Purdue and North Carolina, and I have my Tar Heels winning it all.
  7. My club has an event every year where we play with 7 clubs, and at the first tee your opponent can strike 1 club from your bag. The scores aren't really much different than if we carried full bags. Last year they added a twist where you can only use 3 clubs on any given hole. The main thing that happened there, is that if you got in trouble on a hole you probably wouldn't have a putter available. So you had to putt with a hybrid or wedge or something.
  8. Congrats! And now you can qualify to play in the PGA Championship, right?
  9. Welp, I'm playing a league match today. It's 95 with a heat index of around 110. I'll be out there walking and carrying my bag. Thank goodness we only play 9. 18 would be really tough.
  10. My son, until recently, used the US Kids clubs. They're very good clubs, probably the best kids clubs around. They have the Ultra Light series and the Tour Series. They UL's are lighter and more flexible than the TS. For a beginner, I'd go with the UL series. For a more athletic, more serious kid, the TS are a better fit. When my boy hit 5 foot, instead of getting the TS-60 clubs (the sets are numbered but a kid's height in inches), I just have him my previous clubs, adult sized. He choked down on them for a while, but now, at 5' 3", he just plays them normally.
  11. Yeah, at the DC&P there were boys that could kill it 250+. On the other hand, my son came in second in driving because he kept all 3 of his 210-220 yard drives in the fairway.
  12. Yup, I golf with my son all the time. He's 14 and is hoping to play high school golf next year. He has played for a number of years now. For the last 3-4 he has done the PGA Junior League with our local municipal course. He enjoys the team aspect of it. He has also done a few tournaments, although that hasn't gone as well. Also he's done the Drive, Chip and Putt, although he's never advanced out of the local qualifying. He's taken lessons from several pros, and we've settled on one that he likes and seems like a very good instructor. This year is he has sprouted up, and i
  13. Kirklands are back, if anyone is interested. I ordered another 4 dozen. Also now they have a cheaper 3 piece ball.
  14. The golf league I'm in has three different flights, A, B and non-competitive. The NC flight just goes out and hacks it around, no scores or anything. There are some really bad golfers in NC, but they have fun, so it's all good. I've seen other leagues at my local muni that is also non-competitive. I got sent out once with folks in the Marriott league. Random people who work for the company just go out for the fun of it. It didn't seem like most knew each other either, since it's such a big corporation. Basically the company just reserved a block of tee times, and anyone in the compa
