  1. Handicap down below 14 (from 18, which drifted out from 14) by 31/12, break 80 at least once this year, make an eagle in a tournament round 18 tournament rounds (1 down already) 9 lessons (1 down already) - with the idea to place total trust in the instructor and commit to doing the drills to continue to improve my swing. Go to short game facility regularly on my day off and systematically improve (putting stroke and read bead speed exercises, chips, pitches and distance wedges). Go to the range and be boring (commit to doing the drills set by instructor) more 3x a month Videoing my swing at the range more Find a better balance between golf as relaxing activity and golf as athletic pursuit towards a lower handicap. Diarise the golf play and practice I have. Not for the record but for the reflection it provides.
  2. 2nd hole at home course, downhill lie pitch across a lake, about 100 yds. Dead thin, skipped off water, rolled to about 15 feet, 2 putt par.
  3. I love the effortless myth. So funny. I think it is balance, but balance is hard, and boring, while effortless makes you think you can hit it as far as Ernie Els without trying very hard.
  4. Sadly for the first time since December 2015 my handicap is back in this bracket, got as low as 13.2, back to 16.5 as of my last round. I hope to leave you guys very soon but for now I look forward to being on this journey again.
  5. I vassilate between z star and z star XV - I think I prefer the XV. They feel really nice when I strike them well
  6. If you're with the Dalai Lama altitude is definitely influencing your yardages @BuckeyeNut🏔️
  7. Thanks to us mainly 🐺
  8. I'd be fully for this - I think it is a great idea. As much as I love it I think I'd rather devote a 5th rather than a quarter of my weekend to golf. The only drawback I can see IACAS is that a 6 hole round (the equivalent of a 9 hole round in 18 hole golf) would be a little too short to be satisfying.
  9. I feel the need to get my weight far in front of the ball and hit a 'flighted' shot with a low trajectory. This tends to get me hitting down more and more likely to strike ball before standing water. Also looks cool and makes a cool splash when you hit the turf.
  10. One of the few benefits of watching football in Australia is that the kick-off never interfere with golf, what with them being in the middle of the night. They will break your heart over, and over, and over again. Good choice, I see where you're coming from. 🐺
  11. These two points are related for me. VAR helps remove the randomness which allowed the richest to sometimes lose.
  12. The answer I suppose is both until you actually play a round with him, or don't play a round with him. Damn quantum superposition.
  13. And it is still one more stroke if a putt hovers over the lip and doesn't go in, lips out or if the put rolls 6' by. That's golf hey?
  14. We are stacked. Last year was a little bit like playing a computer game on cheat mode. I reckon mid-table mediocrity here we come. I reckon you guys will be fine though, well organised puts you a step ahead of a lot of bottom half teams.
  15. If 5 years ago you'd have said we'd be facing each other in the big dance I'd have thought you mad. My wife supports Huddersfield so I hope they have a good season too (and as an Aussie I hope you keep a hold of Mooy and he has another great year).
  16. With the World Cup finished, the new season nearly here, and my Wolves recently promoted, I thought it time to start a thread for the football this season.
  17. On one level I absolutely agree, my course has a really bad habit of doing this as well. However more philosophically, the ball is either where you can see it or it is anywhere else in the universe. Maybe the animal spirited it away, maybe a wormhole opened up and it's in Nevada. Can you absolutely know for sure? 🤔
  18. More existentially - how do you know it is still in bounds if you haven't found it?
  19. If not for the 6 that would be a very satisfying (OCD wise) scorecard. I was wondering if anyone has shot a 90 with 18x5s.
  20. Got an email from them today saying they have incorporated strokes gained in the live tracking. An interesting development and I'll check it out and report back.

    Yeah agree that it is a matter of taste. It's a bit I love Jimbo and don't have time in the week for The Game, FW and Totally show.

    Hahah there is also some context here. Most of those on the Totally Show used to be the Football Weekly show, esp James Richardson. They started a breakaway company at the start of last season. I jumped ship too - enjoy the Totally show much more.

    2018 World Cup

    This is an amazing example of this, got them through to the semis. Also how good was Forlan in this tournament!!!

    The Game from the Times is also very good. I listen to their weekly pod during the regular season, don't have time to listen to the WC one.

    2018 World Cup

    Hi @mcanadiens Club football is definitely globalised (100% with you), many resources being placed in the hands of a few super clubs, rules being re-written to help them; but international football is globalising in a very different way. What we see is that the best players are increasingly exhausted at these tournaments, the quality of football is much lower, and we see a lot more 'professionalism' from smaller countries means the gap between big and small is shrinking. Much more likely now than ever to see smaller nations come up big. Iceland is the best example. It's plainly ridiculous that they are doing so well, but a bit of organisation, team cohesion and some good fortune means they gave the 2nd round a shake.
