  1. Yeah, was just looking at that, so if you win the "walk up lotto" or something in that vain, then it sounds like a really good deal. I'm guessing compared to "courses of similar esteem in the US" doing the "stay at our hotel to play" is pretty reasonable too? Wow ... three rounds of golf for L130 ($177) . https://www.standrews.com/play/courses/old-course/booking-the-old-course/winter-package-2018. Am I reading this right.
  2. Just out of curiosity, what might one expect to pay for a round of golf here?
  3. Pinehurst/Sandhills Trip

    The couple of times I played there with the Golf Channel it didn't seem to be overwhelmed with other golfers. Like you, I'm a bit skeptical that private membership will be able to sustain it.
  4. Wish I could get motivated to do this, I've found these two sights that don't require a lot of special equipment: https://furthermore.equinox.com/articles/2017/08/golf-workout?slide=6 https://furthermore.equinox.com/articles/2017/08/golf-flexibility Edit: ahhh, just noticed this is old and Chris probably doesn't care, oh well, maybe it will help someone else.

    Personally I hope he does well. But, given that he hasn't played competitively in a while, I think the odds are against him, and this would apply to ANYONE in a similar situation. My hope is that he is able to play without injury going forward and that he sticks with it because there's going to be a lot of second guessing why he's not winning every week and is he washed up. If he sticks with it, I don't think he'll continue to dominate the way he used to, but my bet is he'll get back to being competitive again.
  8. Now that you've had this thing for a while do you still like it? Does it seem to be accurate?
  9. No Yardage Markers

    Love my "Golf Buddy." Just push a button and the Golf Buddy tells me (using voice) the center of the green or hold the same button and it tells me front and back. I don't have to struggle looking at some display that I can't see anyway with my poor reading eyesight. I have a Bushnell laser rangefinder too but I typically just want to know where's the middle of the green is at. Occasionally I'll use both the golf buddy and rangefinder to verify if the pin is front, back, etc. Golf Buddy's are relatively inexpensive too, usually around $100. As far as blind shots go, the golf buddy may not be a lot of help for that, and a better GPS that has mapping will be a lot better for that, but I personally don't usually miss not having those sort of capabilities. On rare occasion I'll use my 18 Birdies phone app for course layout with GPS, but it's usually just too much trouble.
  10. Snap draw on driver

    Well, your index is a lot better than mine and I won't tell you what's wrong with your swing, because you're obviously doing a lot of stuff right, but I can tell you what causes me to do a "snap hook". When I try and "swing hard" (as opposed to fast, still trying to square the subtle difference in my thinking concerning the difference) I get up on my toes. This causes my club head to close and I typically pull it too. The tip toe stuff seems to work for Justin Thomas and Lexi Thompson, but I suspect that's their typical shot and it's their standard swing as opposed to what I try and do when I try and hit it hard without making a conscious effort to keep my left foot flat.

  12. 2018 CGA Schedule

    Initial cut at the schedule is posted. Seem to be more one day single player tournaments on the weekend in 2018 than this year. Is it too early to get excited about next season ... I hate winter!
  13. I've won a few tournaments, my recent win I was really happy to take the trophy for as a GolfWeek regional finals 2 day tournament where I won the C flight (14 to 19 handicap) in a playoff. Made an eagle in a CGA tournament this summer which was the only highlight for that round. And, sadly, I'm still trying to break 80 but break 90 regularly ... it's gonna happen next year!
  14. When is it too cold to golf?

    There's a tournament this weekend that's one of the last one's of the year. I've been eyeing it for the last 10 days as soon as the 10 day forecast was available. Initially, I thought that yeah, it's gonna be a bit chilly but I can manage it because it's the last chance this year I'll get to play competitively. As it got closer to tournament time and things starting firming up with the weather I reluctantly decided to pass. Initially the first tee time was starting at 11:00 and odds are I'd end up tee off closer to 12:00 with my flight. It was changed to a shotgun start at 10:00. It's suppose to be 34 degrees, 7 mph wind, and mostly cloudy at 10:00 AM and 31 degrees at 9:00 which is when I'd normally get there and start "warming up." The high for the day is suppose to be 44 degrees which I could live with, but the morning temps are just too cold. I may regret not playing ... but as the OP said, how cold is too cold to play golf? Guess my answer is 34 with a little wind.
  15. Joining A "No Match" league

    I play in a local meetup group here in the Triangle area. It's a great way to meet golfing buddies. They can be hit or miss though and you might be lucky to find one in your area that's active. Some folks just like to join meetup groups and never play and some folks create a group only to find it's a lot more effort and money than they expected and never schedule any events or let it fizzle out quickly.
