  1. Congrats! What have your lessons focused on?
  2. Does the hip slide on the downswing have anything to do with creating lag?
  3. I think you may be missing the "subtext."The point that the Recreational Golfer is trying to make is that you don't have to hit the ball far, but you do have to be consistent and accurate from 130 yards and in. If your driver works for you, and you hit it consistently, long, and accurately, you're that much more likely to break 100. But even on a typical 6200-yard course, you can also break 100 if, on a typical par 4, you hit a club from the tee 130 yards on-line and in the fairway, hit the same club another 130 yards on-line and in the fairway, and hit a third shot 100-130 yards onto the green, then two-putt. [now I just have to learn to practice what I preach! ]

    My Swing (Fhmlp)

    I don’t mean to hijack the thread, but this was really good!
  5. Are you buying used premium balls on eBay, or new?

    Pete Rose in the Hall of Fame

    The HOF is a private corporation, separate and apart from MLB. Therefore, Rose is ineligible only because the HOF chose to amend their eligibility criteria. Personally, I think Rose was a great player, who fully deserves to be in the Hall, but at the same time he’s a jerk who violated basic and essential MLB rules, so I have no problem with him being permanently banned from MLB.

    Ice Skating Redux - Tonya Harding

    It's been a long time, and I haven't seen the movie, but IIFC, the police found a note, in her handwriting, listing the address of Kerrigan's practice rink. Some speculated that Harding was aware that "something" was going to happen, but she didn't know "specifically" that her ex-husband and his friend planned on knee-capping Kerrigan. If true and/or I remember accurately, this might have been some of the reason for the lifetime ban.

    What Do You Do for a Living?

    Now retired; previously, I was an administrative law judge at a federal agency.
  9. @Golfer gal From 28 to 15.1 in one year? Wow, that’s very impressive (and inspiring)!

    Predict Tiger's 2018 Season

    I’ll go for 2 wins, 0 majors in 2018 (that seems pretty optimistic, but I’d love to see it).

    Learn to Play Golf the Fastest

    Jeez, for a while I was worried that I was the only one here old enough to remember this classic! “Hello, ball!”
  12. Yeah, I’ve heard a similar joke about the deceased wishing to have members of [Toronto Maple Leafs/insert team name here] serve as pallbearers, so they could “let him down” one more time.
  13. I’m re-reading this thread again. Too bad there’s no way to make it (and others) “pop-up” automatically every New Year’s!

    Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi

    I’m not a big Star Wars fan (my wife is, so I saw Last Jedi), but FWIW, I like a lot of your comment.
