    What'd You Shoot Today?

    After shooting backs to back rounds of 97, I shot a 92 this morning....Had one hole with a 4 putt, and a couple of double bogeys that should have been bogeys, so I felt pretty good. Hit the ball well, only lost 1 ball, so now my next goal is to break 90 next week....

    Hybrid VS Driving Iron

    Seems it is personal preference for many...but wouldn't carrying a hybrid be more versatile than carrying a driving iron. Is the only place you are gonna use the iron is off the tee, while you can use the hybrid off the tee, off the fairway, out of the rough, and in some instances around the green?
  3. I use the Thomas Golf 3H and 4H...I like them, find them not to be extremely long but they are consistent and I continue to play with them for the past 3 years. I tried a few others but settled on the Thomas Golf 3H and 4 H and am still playing with them and not looking to replace them...That is the best info I can give you...

    What are Your 2019 Golf Goals?

    I guess my number 1 objective is to remain healthy....right now I am good and looking forward to 2019, but still have 2 months left in 2018. Golf wise, i would really like to break 90 twice in the last 2 months of 2018 and shoot under 90, 6 times in 2019. To accomplish this, I know I have to improve my putting. But along with that, I need to improve my chipping game and get the ball closer to the hole leaving more opportunities for 1 putts and not 2 or 3 putts...also, I want to get to the point that I can average hitting 7 fairways per round off the tee. Right now I hit about 3 fairways per round and probably hit 3 GIR... If I can bogey all the holes except the par 5, and par the par 5, I believe I will break 90... To improve these areas, i need to practice more. I will commit to practice more and learn to control my distance on the pitching and chipping parts of the game giving me shorter first putts and getting the ball in the fairway.
  5. Over paying for AVX or Velocity?
  6. For the past few years I have been playing with the Callaway SuperSoft. I like the ball, hit it okay, and don't have any issues around the green with it...but, my game has virtually been the same for 3 years...(I know, it is not the ball it is me) so I decided to try a new ball. I have played my 3rd round with the Titleist Velocity and not much has changed score wise, but here is what I have learned about the Velocity....Seems to be pretty straight and at least as long as the SuperSoft. Ball flight off the driver is not bad, just a tad bit higher but roll out is good. Ball flight off the longer irons is a tad bit higher. The ball feels pretty good, but a bit firmer than the SuperSoft, especially off the short irons and the putter. Price point is virtually the same. I will likely continue to play with the Velocity and wonder if any of you have played the Velocity and have any opinions on it....
  7. I play with my brother and he plays a big slice as his normal shot....He sets up for it, hits it and generally is in pretty good shape. Only time he really struggles is when there are trees to the left right off the tee box...He plays the same shot with his irons, so it it his normal shot...he makes adjustment based on a cross wind being from right or left, but that is it.

    When does it make sense to quit?

    I have figured out at age 69 that it is not really about getting better and shooting lower scores. I still shoot between 90 and 100 and have even shot an 88 once. To me, each round is different and depending on the weather, the weather the previous days (did it rain) and how it affects the course, I just compete against the course. I don't compete against others, because we are at different ages and golfing levels. Some days I have to adjust because I can't hit the ball off the tee, others it is my short irons, and most of the time it is my putting...Every time I go out I have an objective to break 90...If I do, great. if I don't but hit the ball pretty good and saw some consistency, good. I will only quit when I physically cannot do it any more. Right now, I am in pretty good health and can still get around 18 holes, so I will just keep plugging along, hoping for that day when it all comes together and I shoot under 90.

    John Daly and the Hall of Fame

    No....John Daly does not warrant HOF. Some one else....neither of the ones offered as choices
  11. Chattanooga TN...gonna play Black Creek and hopefully get to play Council Fire
  12. Used to play a course in New Orleans East called Eastover. Was a nice cause, quite challenging. Never came back from Katrina...
  13. Post Katrina some of the courses were completely submerged under feet of water--salt water. They, for the most part never recovered. Some, a bit further from the flooding lost a lot of trees and it took them a while to get back to where they were functional. Many are still not the same but good grounds crews do make a difference...

    What tee to play from?

    Generally play the tees that are from 5700 to 6000 yards....I am not ashamed to play the forward tees, but not fighting playing the next set back when playing with other folks...
