  1. Im a month shy of 65 playing my hole life I had my 1st and only eagle this year. 350yd par 4 I holed out a wedge from 118, lol I saved the ball dirt and all and its going to go in a ball display.
  2. A course near my son in South Carolina, Golden Hills has power lines running across a fairway on the back 9 that are in play.
  3. 86, Carillon Golf Course in Plainfield.
  4. After 40 years I took a couple lessons this spring and I finally had my 1St eagle
  5. Give me an account like theirs and I’ll pay double tax
  6. Best lessons I’ve ever had where short game
  7. Edsland


  8. Taylormade M 2 woods Calloway irons and Cleveland wedges with an Odyssey putter
  9. Timber trails awesome course with 1800 Oak trees, one was off to our right near a tee. I took a mighty swing and the 4 or us ducked while the ball careened 20 feet behind us.
  10. Larger drive head sizes was about the same time too.
  11. Grew up in Chicagoland, played Cog 4 a bunch, it’s a great course but I really like Cog #2 better. I played Caledonia G. & Fish Club, Pawleys Island and Harbour Town. In Michigan I played Barton Hills in Ann Arbor.
  12. Myy favorite time is when it finally hits 60 after a long winter.
  13. I caddied at RuthLake CC and Mondays was caddies played for free.
  14. 3-300 games, qualified to bowl some PBA tournaments in the 70's
  15. Reminds me of the commercial where the guys on a ladder as the cleaning guy comes in and starts erasing the guys equation.
  16. Nope, in 50 years of playing without one im pretty certain it would be the slammer for me.
  17. Sergio doesn’t have a dad like I did, I was a pretty good bowler from bantom kids league all the way to the PBA. When I was 10 I was in a kids tournament and our team blew a game we never should have, as I walked to the lockers with my bowling ball I simply bounced it into a cider block wall. My dad grabbed me by the sleeve and sternly told me, NEVER AGAIN if you want me to pay for your bowling. Needless to say I took losing a lot better after that.
  18. Reading through a lot of the post is pretty interesting. Im a 20 and I can drive over 300 as long as I get a 2nd shot added to my 200 yd drive. My son is 30 years younger then me and golf's year round, is a 7, and averages about 250. He'll get the occasional smoked down hill dry fairway 300 but its not every round. A couple weeks ago I was in a PGA superstore and a younger guy was testing out a driver and had a few guys watching him so I waited for his next shot. All i can say is he carried 3 out of 4 310 and his swing was like watching TV, i would bet my next grandkid that he was no 20 handicap.
  19. Ive been steep for 30 years,at least for me its harder then quitting smoking.
  20. And the old guys don't average 330, so when the PGA distance average goes up its not just equipment.
  21. A guy on Sirius golf channel made a good point, every year a certain amount of golfers retire from the PGA or are marginal players that are bumped out of playing privileges. The new young guns, like Champ replace someone and driving average for tour is increased by younger, and a lot more skilled.
  22. For me. It was when I stopped carrying a waterball for times when I was too scared to hit my good ones if there was trouble I had to negotiate.
  23. Very cool, im sure with his ball it wont be his last 300.
