    Evaluating your game on the course

    I measure it by how much puke is on my shoes after the round.

    It's not too late in a seven-game series. Caps should know that as well as anyone since CBJ had em down 2-0 going back to Columbus in round one.

    SCOTUS - States free to legalize sports betting

    I've seen a few too many gambling addicts ruin their lives to necessarily feel great about this. ... Of course, the fact that it was illegal in the first place didn't make any difference in their cases.

    Closed Courses You Formerly Played

    I'm not entirely sure if it is actually shut or not, but the scene of my first-ever round of golf is making way for senior housing. That course is/was the par-3 Rollandia GC in Dayton OH. Rollandia is just long enough to allow you to hit your big clubs a couple of times, without beating up the beginners. With a nice range, it was a great place to get started. From what I have heard, the place was making money, but the land it was on was just too valuable.

    Embracing the slice

    A buddy of mine has fully embraced his slice. Dude's 55-years old and been playing the same 150-yard slice (The Stevie Slice) on the same par-3 course for 30 years. It really is extremely predictable and he's happier than a clam with it, It does mean that we will probably never play anywhere other than his par-3 course.

    Y’all ever sneak on to a course?

    Same here. The killer thing about this is that it would be a complete no-brainer at the courses I play. There are almost never starters after noon. Nobody has ever heard of a ranger there. The first tees are well outside of view from the pro shop. Certain people take advantage of this all the time.

    One of those days, they suck

    #Metoo. Got me teeth slammed down my throat.

    The only thing I was really hoping for (since November) came to pass. No Cup for the B-ruins.
  9. If someone decides to bust into my car, it would cost more for me to repair the car than to replace the golf clubs. Aside from that, I don't really see why the clubs would be much better off in my garage. It's going get damn near as hot and cold there as in my trunk.

    Handicap trended up. Golf Course is harder!

    A lot can change in a short period of time at a course. A new club pro took over my favorite easy course and made the greens stupid fast. Not sure how much time it will take for the course ratings to adjust to reflect the new reality.

    Forum Profile Handicap Indices....

    Association people didn't input my score from Saturday or I'd probably have been up a couple ticks. Unchanged from last year, so far.

    Within 50 yds ....

    Not that my results would recommend doing it, but my stock shot is to try to pitch a SW to a spot 7 feet or so in front of the stick. I barely get any backspin on it, so that's about the roll out I anticipate.

    Help For Early-Season Blisters

    Thanks everyone. Used a needle and popped it. Hit it with bactine and wrapped. Didn't play real well. But the blister was no problem.

    Help For Early-Season Blisters

    Thanks for the advice fellows. The grip wasn't really something I was thinking much about yesterday and at this point in the season anything is possible. I'll be paying attention to it tomorrow.

    Links Course

    Relative to other things I suppose. It would be a seven-hour car ride and a whole bunch of money. That place was definitely set up to be a links-type course. I guess the traditionalists would point out that it was all done by man and not Ma Nature.
