  1. Good tip. I usually skip the shoes because I'm not a fan of changing shoes at the course. Same here. The only time I bother with shoes is when I'm worried about rain and puddles.
  2. Good topic. I have really only one complaint I think. Sometimes in the evening they'll be replaying some secondary tournament and not the biggest event going on in the US. I'd like to tune in every night, starting Thursday, and fall asleep with replays...
  3. I forgot about this post, glad it got bumped. The title of the thread would make a great poem. I saw a Woman Playing Alone....
  4. I'm not sure what this audio content is.Are you talking about the random people hitting golf balls? TV announcers ?
  5. I think Torrey Pines is in the $55 to $60 range for San Diego residents. I target $40 or less if possible. People seem less pretentious at the cheaper courses too.
  6. Yes. Agreed. And I usually have NO idea why during a round. I suspect it's a combo of feeling anxious and fatigue. Nothing stings like hitting a ball of to the side. Agreed. Ever rolled a ball on to the green from far away? It's just OK.
  7. Nice. I like an #existential point of view.
  8. On a couple of recent rounds I hit almost every drive fairly straight. Not far, but good enough. Today I hit most of them far right into the OB, topped it, popped it up, etc. I remember reading some post here that just when you think you have the game under control, the "wheels fall off" and something like this happens. Why do we have good days and bad days ?
  9. That's what I was thinking. Me and my golf buddies have a variation: "don't do anything stupid". Here's another one. Just hit every shot very straight and far. LOL
  10. How would you guys actually the the difference between Costco 1.0 and Costco 2.0. I'll admit that I am not consistent enough to judge if extra yardage was just a better hit or the ball.
  11. When do we see this guy play these days?
  12. Right. And correct HIM next time. It's terrible etiquette to critique other golfers. Put him on the spot. Say something like.... So how long have you been playing? I'm surprised you're acting like this is your first time on a course. Seasoned players would know not to go on like you are ..... It will get under his skin. Now that you put things in perspective - definitely you should have mentioned his other errors.
  13. Maybe this guy really bugged you. Because what if you had informed him,then what? He takes 3 clubs out? He's disqualified?
  14. I think the theory is the practice green gives you the feel for that course on that day. But you know what? It has never helped me either.
  15. I wonder if it works. Also why use a real club? I think I'd use some kind of soft substitute so I don't take a big chunk of the wall.
  16. Agreed - HI shirts are un-tucked by definition. This is a non-controversy.
  17. I just saw an ad on Golf Channel for this. I like the basic idea of a built in speedometer on a club. Anyone tried this ? https://www.supersonicgolf.com/get/supersonic-x10pb/
  18. Yes that works. Could you build this into the site as some kind of custom Google search window ?
  19. You should try it. Maybe it would bring back some memories and give you some kind of psychological advantage. I golf with a guy that use some ancient kind of putter. It look like basic metal rectangle of brass. I'm sure he' attached to it,
  20. I did some searching and don't see "Delta T" but do see some Delta brand clubs. Here i one oldie from eBay, is it similar ? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Delta-Titanium-Matrix-Driver-10-5-G119-/180724505389
  21. It's a relatively cheap hobby for me. I estimate 25 x $40 or $1000.
  22. This was covered years ago when this guy had just 2 days to learn
  23. OK so now I'm starting to agree with you (not about quitting golf - just about short tee intervals). In fact somewhere on this board is a long thread I started about the fallacy of the 8 minute tee time. Yeah - if you were to fill a course full of foursomes at 8 minute intervals you have a massive traffic jam.
