    What is Holding You Back (In a Few Words)?

    Poor club selection. I gotta stop picking the club I can hit the next farthest and pick smarter , starting with the tee box. Approach shots are often to far out. If I play for par +1, I believe I would shoot lower scores.
  2. This. I buy the wilson duo, on sale, 36 for $50. Two thing I have learned in my short time. 1. A $5.00 ball sinks as quickly as a $0.50 ball. 2. If it's not my ball in the water, I leave it there.

    I Saw a Woman Playing Alone

    My wife retired last year and previously would never play alone. She ended up joining two ladies leagues, with strangers. She met a bunch of nice folks and took 5 strokes off her handicap (23 to 18). She's gonna be club treasurer at one of them this year. Besides improving, she really learned about the rules of golf. Enjoy the journey

    I Saw a Woman Playing Alone

    My wife and I play a local muni weekly. We see the same three single women who we are occasionally started with. They are all over 60, as are we, all walk with a push cart and all take it very seriously. Do I wonder why they are golfing alone? Probably cuz they want to go golfing, maybe have no significant other who golfs. Just a guess, but considering the amount of testosterone that is floating around many courses, many ladies who are single prefer to stay away. They want to golf, not fend off dating attention.

    What are you Reading Right Now?

    Of course Pelz believes the short game is the most important piece of the game and remember what forum you are posting in...but...yes...It has some great information. Basic focus is on 100 yards and in. Short game. No full swing focus at all. I read it, plus a few others every winter. A fairly long read. As well as a little mental game and course management, his theory revolves around understanding/dialing in partial swing distance for short game. Regardless of Whether you buy in to how much time should be devoted to short game, it gives you a program to nail down your wedge distances. You still have to execute. There is no substitute
  8. I know this is true-this man paced it off.

    What are Your 2019 Golf Goals?

    1. Keep walking the course (I do use a cart)-Maintain a regular walking program-currently walking 45 minutes 3 to 4 times a week. 2. Maintain my once a week practice (Time is always a problem)-three clubs max-90 balls max (get to tired) and really concentrate on target practice-wedge iron and wood. Last year that added a few yards to every club when hit solid and built my confidence on distance 3. Add a once a week a week practice on the putting green-probably a one ball routine 4. Practice not thinking about the last bad shot

    Shorter Rounds?

    That baby boomer cohort was a lot of people. Like us or hate us, we are gonna die. The millennial are they next pig in the python. They won't take up the golf slack for another 20 years. If they ever do. Derek and Madison are driving spending right now. If you live in an area where a lot of golf courses were built in the 80's based on a residential home builders greed, Your gonna be able to get a cheaper rate and faster rounds, until they close for good. Hourly indoor simulators are gonna be one of the golf waves of the future. An hour at virtual Pebble, with beers with the boys.
  12. Iacus-I hear ya..its an indoor tent dome...just trying to drop a ball at a specific place-I try to imagine a tree in front of me I have to stay under or trying to drop a ball after a bunker. I don't flag hunt...the last year I have tried to direct my approach shot toward the opening to the green, if there is one, more of a bump and run.
  13. Started my winter golf reading this week. Always start with TLRB. Man it has some great tidbits and reminders: -Take dead aim-gotta always remember that-once again, gonna spend winter practice reinforcing that. The last two winters have used every iron and wedge in my bag shooting at 35 and 60 yard targets, just for the feel. -Take one aspirin, not the whole bottle-a little change make a big difference. Someone else added: and make only one change at a time and if its for you practice it until it becomes the new normal.

    Winter Depression Thread

    Had only 5 months of decent golf this year. Can usually count on 7 months. April didn't open cuz of late snow. Lost Oct due to early snow. Sept. was damn cold. Its the start of winter. Shovelling. Cold walks in the neighbourhood. Occasional snow blower activity. Already into my 4th week at the indoor dome

    Expected score on par 3 courses?

    Last year I tried to use +1 as my par on every hole. It changed my 2nd shot and approach shot distances. Making them more reasonable for me...instead of grabbing the club I could hit the longest.
