  1. When Did You Sell Out?

    Last season I started playing from the white tees. I finally gave up on the idea that I was going to "pull it all together" and drive 270 consistently. My enjoyment of the game skyrocketed. This season I will start using a push cart and invest in a few hybrids to replace the 3i and 4i.
  2. Northern Michigan trip

    I haven't played any of the courses you mentioned here. I have played a great deal of them around Bellaire and the Shanty Creek Resort. There are several beautiful tracks within a 30 min drive of that location.
  3. Crypto Currency (Bitcoin)

    This is what concerns me. Is there really billions and billions being poured into crypto? Or is it all a shell game? Like some new kind of pyramid / ponzi scheme that we will find out later was a giant coordinated scam? Something doesn't feel right about the whole thing.
  4. Crypto Currency (Bitcoin)

    Closing in on $17,000. Interesting times we live in right now.
  5. Crypto Currency (Bitcoin)

    With BTC prices nearing $13,000.00, up over 1,000% on the year, has anyone jumped on this train? I threw $500 in when it was at $7,900. Needless to say I wish I had put a bit more. At the same time, this seems completely unsustainable. Share your crypto currency thoughts. Bubble? Legit?
  6. Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    A Tiger Woods / Jordan Spieth final pairing on the weekend would be superb theater.
  7. Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    We could analyze every shot of any other golfer in the field and find similar or equally weighty issues. He's the middle of the pack right now in a field with many of the best golfers the world has ever seen, I'd say he is doing just fine. Any predictions for today's round? I'll say 67 as he will improve on the Par 5s.
  8. Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    69. Good call. Impressive round for first time competing in such a long time.
  9. Golf Practice Nets

    I am getting the itch to acquire a net for my basement or garage. I want to take swings in the off season to both keep my game sharp and to relive stress. I have 8 foot ceilings in my basement, but I still hit the ceiling with my driver on the follow through, but the rest of the clubs are fine. The pros to a basement net is that it is temperature controlled and can stay up year round. The garage gets quite cold in the winter, but it does have more room and would feel less cramped. I am exploring options for DIY nets or purchased nets. I am not sure which way to go yet, DIY does not appear to save much money and will compromise more of my time. I am leaning toward the Rukket net at the moment.
  10. Schwab Cup 2017

    I was wondering the same. The broadcast last week made it sound like he had clinched already. Either way, it is good fun to watch him excel into his 60s.
  11. Your Workout Today

    I am back on the 5/3/1 lifting program for the winter. I lost substantial muscle mass this year when I slacked off on the weightlifting. It seems as I approach 40 it is harder and harder to slack and get away with it. Yesterday was bench press day.
  12. My Dad taught me to "anticipate what other drivers are going to do" and that advice has saved me many times. I can see events unfolding in front of me and react appropriately. No way this happens if I am distracted, even by a phone call. As for seat belts, my dad never wore one until he taught me to drive, he has worn it ever since.
  13. Don't text and drive folks

    Self driving cars need to happen ASAP. I was unsure about them at first, but now I realize what a problem traffic fatalities are. Driving is the most dangerous thing most of us do on a daily basis, lots of room for improvement with technology.
  14. 2017 CIMB Classic

    The wrap around season for golf is like watching preseason baseball, I get my fix of watching but I really can't wait for Hawaii in January.
  15. 2017 Tour Championship

    His reaction is now my favorite victory celebration ever.
