  1. I am playing in an inter-club match today. I know I won’t get any sympathy from the Northerners, but it’s 55° with nearly 20 mile an hour winds. That’s freaking cold for us! Hoping that the relatively tough conditions and our home course advantage today will work in my favor…
  2. Congrats to all the winners and thanks for your contributions to the site! 👏👏
  3. I saw him hit his last home run in Milwaukee in 1976. I had just graduated high school. A great talent. RIP.
  4. Crap, I just saw this! Sorry, but I make it. Maybe next time... Looks like the weather is going to be great for you. Hit ‘em well and have fun!
  5. For some reason the putter cover always goes into the cart basket. Maybe because I’m pulling my towel out of the basket to take to the green? All others just get tossed on the ground. As far as I can remember, I’ve never lost a head cover of any kind.
  6. Sometimes less is more. Angel hair in olive oil with tomatoes, garlic, olives, and sweet basil.
  7. Back at it again. Missed 3 holes last year. Hope to close them all out this year.
  8. You’re kidding, right? Not even going to bother answering the poll...
  9. In 30 years, technology in all golf clubs has improved significantly. Equally important, shaft technology has improved with many more options available than ever before. The 130 gram, stiff, steel shafts that we played 30 years ago, aren’t necessarily what we need/want these days... If you can afford it, I absolutely recommend beginning the search for a complete new set of clubs.
  10. By “b” you mean that she’ll enthusiastically watch football instead of wanting to go shopping or drag me to yet another farmers market, but insists that I play golf with my golf buddies, rather than joining other couples in the hack fest that defines the weekly 9-hole couples league? Is this a trick question?
  11. No. As has been said, unless it’s for everyone, it would be a bifurcation of the rules which I genuinely don’t expect. I could understand a condition of competition implemented on the tours, but not a bifurcation of the rules themselves. Doing so for everyone would make a hard game even harder for many amateurs, especially newer players, the very group they’re trying to attract.
  12. I think I would’ve headed to the bar early!
  13. No. A “stroke” is not a “swing”... From the definitions in The Rules... Stroke The forward movement of the club made to strike the ball. But a stroke has not been made if the player: • Decides during the downswing not to strike the ball and avoids doing so by deliberately stopping the clubhead before it reaches the ball or, if unable to stop, by deliberately missing the ball.
  14. You should really try playing golf sometime. It’s a fun game!
  15. Seared lamb lollipops with fingerling potatoes, haricot vert and roasted onion with balsamic glaze.
  16. Looks great! I have a buddy who has had a Camp Chef pellet smoker for 2 years now and loves it. Extremely versatile and easy to use.
  17. I have just as much fun playing by the rules, as not. Hell, probably more...
  18. Nice! Olinger can get around the table!
  19. This was 2 weeks ago in my room. 4 days of having some of the best pros in the country playing in 2 different divisions. Jeffery DeLuna ended up winning both divisions. He had actually been in town for a week before the tournament, hanging around and playing locals for fun and profit as a fund raiser for his home in the Philippines that had just been hit by a typhoon. Great guy and a pleasure to hang out with. We were pleased that he did well... Scroll to the article here... December 2020 
  20. All of the above and more. I probably see/hear more in casual, albeit money games than in tournaments though. A just-loud-enough-to-be-heard comment to a playing partner that the opponent standing over a 4 foot putt “hasn’t missed a putt like that in 3 weeks” is always fun...
  21. Horrible. They looked like a bunch of APA 5’s. Love him or hate him, Ronnie O is amazing. For anyone who thinks that pool on a 9 foot table is even remotely difficult, I highly recommend that you try snooker. An absolutely horrible, unbelievably difficult game. For which I say f**k the Brits! Yet, I drive an hour each way to play it a couple of times a month...
