  1. You are lucky. I tell folks I graduated from UNLV, and they go "Reno or Las Vegas"?.....smh
  2. 79 at the Lakes Course in Primm Valley. 39/40, & 29 putts. Just a little breezy, and some what warm. Glad the course's mobile starter talked me into using an electric cart. Tomorrow will be a different course as we motor back to our main home.
  3. LOL. When you older young man, you will fully understand how older folks' rrigation systems work like they do.......
  4. Day 529. Range work this morning. Actually just losening up, and dealing with a minor hang over. Using my "iron bag", I hit about 50-60 balls. Used every club (2-lw & 4W) except my putter. Full, 3/4, and 1/2 swings, at various range targets. Most shots were off the turf, and some were tee'd up. Playing 18 holes in a little bit as a walk on.
  5. Not much bothers me when I play, or practice. I play relaxed golf, and relaxed golf is always.good golf. Noise of any kind is never a problem for me.
  6. I put an old shaft on a new club head, with good success, and better distance. I caved in the original club face. What I had to make sure of was the tip of the old shaft was still in good shape after removal, and before the install of the new club head. Needed to make sure there were no micro cracks, or other weak points. Also had to make sure the new club head install mirrored hlthe position of the old club head. It can be done.
  7. If you are hitting your "older" driver 200+/- yards reasonably straight, you would probably gain some yards updating to something newer, that is fitted to your current swing. Same with fairway woods. I might recommend you look at components, and the lower profile club heads As for your irons, alot of good things have happened in technology for irons in the past 15 years.. Again, I am talking about being fitted to your current swing. Again look at components for iron replacements. Another thing is that bagging a newer set of clubs, is really good for one's self confidence, and personal enjoyment of the game. If you find yourself dead set on buying a brand name set of clubs, give the Tour Edge stuff a look see. My irons are pretty darn old, but so am I, which keeps me from purchasing new stuff. I don't see newer clubs helping my scores at this point....lol
  8. My guess is, that with no physical limitations, you will probably gain most of your original distance back. I would not expect to gain all of it back. It will take some time. I lost a lot of distance upon my return, but that was do to physical limitations. I made up for some of the lost distance in other areas of my game. After it was all said, and done, I lost a total of 5, or 6 strokes.
  9. Day 528. Just a little carpet putting this morning. Same carpet routine as always. Pacticing rolling straight putts over a dime about 18"-20" inches in front of the ball. Quick and easy. Bunch of other stuff to do today.
  10. Spitting on a golf course. I've done it, and I have seen it done many times by others. Even on TV. The only time I really ever thought about normal (?) spitting in the negative, was when that guy Sergio squatted down and purposely spit into the cup during a televised tournament. I thought that was pretty ignorant of him. Now there is a problem I have with spitting and that is those "asshats" who spit sun flower seed shells all over the greens. I see someone doing that, and I will probably give them an ear full of WTFs..
  11. Day 527 Worked on approach shots up 60, or so yards. Target was a big, wide bodied palm tree about 90 yards a way. Focuses were on set up, club face aim, club selection, and back swing lengths. Goal was to land balls on, or near my target line to the palm tree. My aim line was not always the same as my target line, due to the various types of shots I was hitting. The tree was never in danger, as I never hit any balls that far. Didn't spend much time practicing today, as I am not near a golf course. This is a remodel, work weekend, out of town.
  12. Gave him a 2. He's a very good schill for the players.
  13. It's the US Open. As a viewer, I expect higher scores. It should be the tougher set up of the four majors. Plus I like hear about the players pissing, and moaning about tough, unfair set ups. It shows their worth.
  14. At our course the womens' tees are at 5200-5400 yards. I am not that old yet, to want to play from those shorter tees.. Call it my latent, male ego if you wish. Also on a 5400 yard course the other players would have the same advantage for those skins, and cttp awards. The shorter course would bring more players into play for those awards. There would be less competition for me on the longer course. Plus, I would most likely shoot the same score regardless of which yardages I played. Just the way my game plays out.n
  15. I watched some of Thursday's round. Based on what I saw, I am hoping the course becomes tougher as the tournament moves on.
