  1. I'll go down to the 50s if it's sunny. I refuse to wear pants when I play golf.
  2. Well the weather is always spotty until then anyway. Won't miss many playable days.
  3. My friend said he heard that Wolf has heard from golfers and said they may be open on May 1. I don't know where he heard this but my buddy called me specifically to tell me this. I'm not reading or watching news past headlines. I've been more relaxed since I stopped.
  4. There's some hope that the PA golf courses will open soon.
  5. I want to know and it's not even a debate in my own garbled head.
  6. I don't know. A weird one. I had four birdies on Friday and shot 87. Those things do not jive. EDIT--Also, in case you think I may be one of those long hitters who just get in trouble a bit, I'm not. No penalty shots in that 87 with four birdies. Just a lot of bad shots.
  7. The downside of the great Florida weather is you have to live with Floridians.
  8. Thanks for the suggestions. Selling autographs seems to be the way we're going because neither of these two play golf. Which kind of surprised me.
  9. At full swing, assuming my game is in order and I'm striking it well: PW (48): 115 SW (56): 95 LW (60): 75 SuperDuperLW (64): 60 Or something like that. I'm not a great golfer but with wedges I do have an ability to step on them with a draw to add distance. So I'm not 100% confident in my distances. I sort of judge everything and then just go with what seems right in my head. It's probably the best part of my game these days since my putting has gone to shit.
  10. So I help organize (I'm primarily responsible for the logistics of organizing, running, and being the MC of the actual golf) a charity golf outing every year. This year is different than the previous seven we have done. If you're curious about the reasons, see below for details.* This year we have two celebrities (most likely) who are attending our outing. I suppose it's possible that neither will be able to make it, but both have confirmed at this point. One is a former MLB player of note who is now a broadcaster on a national network and the other is a current NFL star. These are names every sports fan knows (particularly in the Pittsburgh area), and I'd like to maximize their status to help raise money for our charity. But I don't know how. So I'm looking for any ideas. Throw me ones you've seen used before, or anything outside-the-box. We've raised over $100,000 running this outing despite not being pros at this, but none of us do fundraising professionally, so I need help. *I don't know if I've written about this before, but a friend of mine (and part of our main group of guy friends from high school) had two sons with Late Infantile Batten disease. It causes seizures and brain damage, and inevitable death. The poor kids ended up blind, deaf, and demented before they passed away. One at 9, and the other at 11. His second passed in late 2017. Last year, my friend went through a tough divorce, which included him moving from his house. In October, he took his own life. We've shifted focus from raising funds for the two boys medical care to another of my friend's passions: education. He taught phys ed at a tough, poor school district and lamented constantly about how the school didn't have funding for technology and upgraded gym equipment. He often entered a school year with a budget of $100. So we're going to spend the first $1000 on upgraded gym equipment, and the remainder (hopefully about $20k or more) on technology for the school.
  11. . Whatever dude. This is your white flag.
  12. At no point in my life have I ever aspired to be a "saint." Although I feel I'm closer for not unnecessarily capitalizing "rules." Let me ask you a question. Say you're playing somebody for a decent amount of money (whatever that amount is for you). Whether it's fourball or singles. And they address the ball in some thick rough and it clearly moves a bit. Are you penalizing them? Your response to my comment about being facile is to double down on being facile.
  13. We're not professionals. And none of us are playing events anyone cares about. Sure, if you're in a West Penn pro event, or somebody is playing a club championship, yes you have to abide by golf's often silly rules for uniformity. I've played plenty of matches for big money where my opponent was in something that should have been marked GUR, and I told him to just free drop. Or a bunker that hadn't been raked due to rain, and told him to rake and place. Or just drop out of the bunker. Or played a game of pick-up basketball where I didn't call someone for traveling. Or played tennis against somebody where I was given a let serve because the ball had gotten damp from a small puddle in the corner. Or given somebody the point in Catch Phrase even though their opponent didn't actually get the plural version, and only the singular. If that flag was put in properly by the assholes in front of him, or if it was a good flag with a well-cut hole, he has an ace. So again, congratulations to the OP on your hole-in-one. Don't be facile.
  14. This is why so many people (even serious golfers like myself) roll their eyes at the rule zealots. That's a hole in one, I'm counting it as such, congrats to the OP, the rest of you are not invited to my foursome.
