  1. Day 4 Very much appreciate a discussion on the wrists. Growing up playing w/o lessons there is much I can't articulate about a swing... Tx.
  2. Just saw this. I’m in at 7:55p April 1. Dark now so no film but will do it. Tx.
  3. Possibly the dumbest thread ever started on the internets...
  4. 80.9 years = expected CA lifespan (only beaten by Hawaii) 78.6 years = National Average Life expectancy in the US: You're most likely to live a long life in Hawaii and California With the exception of the last two years, when it dropped due to spikes in opioid deaths, life expectancy in the US has generally been increasing.
  5. MTB Black here. On my 6th dozen. Never had a problem. good distance as well.
  6. I play a bunch of courses in my area but mostly a very hilly, beautiful municipal course 4 minutes from my house. It has a slope rating of 130 which surprises me as it plays more difficult. Because it's nice, inexpensive and public, it gets a lot of non-serious golfers who quickly get in over their head. It also happens to be a slightly wealthy area and usually these golfers will get 3 sleeves of new high end balls at the pro shop. I'm guessing these last for the front nine. I say this because I walk the course and the place is littered with really great balls first thing in the morning. It would be remiss of me not to pick them up and at a minimum, I use them for practice rounds in the morning by myself. For scoring, I usually play purchased balls and over the years these have been Bridgestone B330's then to Taylomade TP5x, and now to Schnells. I do like the Schnell balls (performance and cost) but have to admit some of my best scoring has been done with completely random balls.
  7. Fowler really making some great shots.
  8. MacIntyre reportedly confronts Stanley for not yelling fore For a player who made the cut in his major-championship debut, Robert MacIntyre wasn’t all smiles Friday at The Open. The 22-year-old Scot was reportedly unhappy with his playing competitor Kyle Stanley and confronted the American for failing to yell fore on two wayward shots – each of which hit spectators – during his second round at Royal Portrush. “Aye, there were harsh words,” MacIntyre told The Scotsman. “It wasn’t too pleasant. But you’ve got to tell him it’s not right. He didn’t take it well at all.” MacIntyre said that Stanley hit a marshal on the leg on the 14th hole before striking the mother of MacIntyre’s caddie, Greg Milne, on the 17th hole. “We’re shouting fore as the ball is coming into the crowd, and he’s just standing watching it,” MacIntyre said. “And people didn’t have enough time to react when we shouted. It hit Greg’s mum, so I told him how it was. I said I wasn’t happy – and he didn’t really like my response. He’s the only one I’ve seen do that. It was straight into the crowd. It was into the crowd from the word go. And we’re expecting him to shout fore. She’s all right, I think, but it’s not what you want. “… It’s on the [player information] sheets, it’s on everything, you shout fore.”...

  9. I’d love to have 20 people helping me find my ball.
  10. Just looked at some photos of Portrush...damn fine course. Best part - no cart paths.
  11. Anyone know what the greens are like at Portrush? Are they anything like Chambers Bay where the fescue from the fairways continues onto the green (and has no difference)?
  12. You used the word “ground”. The rule uses the word “course”.
