  1. My typical week is one round at Tecolote, an 18 hole executive course, and one round playing twilight at Torrey Pines North where depending on my tee time I'll get between 12 and 18 holes (often stop at 12 as that hole comes back to the clubhouse and I'm a walker and don't have enough light to finish 18). Tecolote, I belong to a players club and walk for $6 weekdays before 8 am, that was $5 last year. (Players club is $32 per month and you get free range balls and discounted green fees). Torrey Pines North twilight is $26 and that is up $1 compared to a couple of years ago. The $26 is a resident rate, costs $25 to get an annual resident card and of course you have to be a resident. I'll be 62 in about 6 months and then will get the senior rate which is $30 non twilight, still $26 for twilight as there is no senior discount for twilight. For me, I usually play with my wife so I pay double. So, finding a good rate is twice the savings.
  2. I switch around. It doesn't seem to matter much. When I play Torrey Pines north, hard greens and hard to stop a ball on, I'll try to play a urethane ball like a pro v1 or Taylormade tp5, or better yet, a Taylormade project a. But for most courses something like a Supersoft is just fine. Not sure it makes sense to play the same ball that the pros play, given that I have a slower swing speed. Could the same ball come off a driver with a 1.5 smash factor for both a 120 mph swing speed and a 90 mph swing speed?
  3. For that matter, maybe the web.com field is tougher than the pga fields in Jack's day.
  4. If you belong to Costco, buy the Callaway balls they are offering. They are usually about 1.25 per ball and are good quality balls.
  5. I'd guess 90% of the folks I play with, including strangers, are leaving the stick in. It seems to speed things up a little bit. I like the flow better, the ability to take a long putt while others are chipping or looking for a ball etc. is what I'm referring to.
  6. Golf is hard. My favorite course (Cimmaron in Palm Springs) suits my handicap so I think I appreciate that course's architecture more than a 2-3 handicap player would. After all it's my favorite course. I prefer Torrey North over Torrey South. Same reason, the north is easier for me to play. I'm guessing the majority of the better players prefer the South. Best handicap to appreciate the courses I like, 10 -12.
  7. I like Azinger and I liked Miller (and Faldo too). There are a lot of critics who are quick to find fault.
  8. That is an easy no for me. I'm 61 and retired, life is really good. Give me 5 million, life would be a bit better than it is now. Nicer golf courses, better ski trips, maybe a house closer to the beach (only 3 miles to the beach now, only 6 miles to Torrey Pines Golf Course which I can play pretty much any time I want) etc. 5 years in prison would be an extreme reduction in my quality of life. Even if I had a 95% chance of success, i still wouldn't take the bet. 99% chance of success? Hmm, I'd have to think about it.
  9. Are you all adjusting for course rating and slope? Torrey South is a beast if you play from the back tees
  10. The leader and co-leader at this point both use AimPoint
  11. I had a physics question that was similar to that. We were asked to calculate the gravitational pull of a Cadillac sitting outside the window of where someone was born and compare that to the gravitational pull of some planet. I think it was the professor's dig at astrology
  12. I play Torrey pretty often, this is an often repeated saying on the course. So the ocean has some sort of gravitational pull, I'll ask when someone says that.
  13. I think poor conditions hurt high handicappers much more than good players especially when it comes to thin or dirt or mud lies. A good golfer that can consistently hit the ball first and have their divot in front of the ball doesn't have any problems with thin lies.
  14. I was there for Thursday's round. I only watched Tiger play one hole, the 8th on the south. He had a putt of about a 45 feet that had a tricky breaking downhill last 10 feet. He left the flag in. He had about a 2 foot second putt and had the flag out. Most of the players i saw had the flag out.
