  1. The Acushnet Company in New Bedford MA is hiring 200 people to meet increased demand for golf products. They have Foot Joy, Titleist and several other brands under their umbrella.
  2. Never offered my opinion on what anybody else should do, just what I do.
  3. Even in a friendly I put mine in the hole unless I'm maxed out, which I usually don't get to. I mean, that is the point after all. I tell the guys I'm with do what you want.
  4. So he was using it to aleve back stiffness, which in turn helped his swing. But he also used it with his driver on par threes, where he was hitting a short iron. The rule seems to punitive. For us with this guy, if it came down to he can't play w/o doing this, we would rather have him play. Thanks for the replies.
  5. This weekend we had a very slow round. One of the guys in my group has back issues and was putting a swing donut on his driver to try and stay loose while waiting on the tee. Another in the group said it was a rules violation. I looked on my phone but the closest thing I found was he could not take a shot with any kind of training aid, but nothing mentioned using them during down time in a round. Did I miss something or was it ok?
  6. Broke two fingers teaching myself to juggle.......
  7. My best on my home course is a +3, i think a good day is +10.
  8. This is as good a place as any to post this. I was so proud of my group today. a guy took a practise swing on the first hole and the ball fell off the tee. nobody said "thats one".....first time ever i'm sure.
  9. I had my right done 8 years ago. I waited a year too long and lost a season walking with a cane. I don't really think about it anymore. I lost about one club, the hip move forward is not as fast but I'm also 8 years older so.... Do the PT. It sucks at first but you need to get the strength and flexibility back. I had it done in November, I was playing by April, and fully trusting it on a full swing by June. Did I say do the PT....
  10. For whats its worth, Suze Orman had it has one of her top 15 money mistakes. It's been a few years so I don't remember any details of why.
  11. I played hockey through high school and some of college till a really bad knee injury ended it. In high school I made an all New England team. Twenty pretty elite players. I thought I was hot stuff. We were going to Montreal to play in a tourney made up of us, a group from NY & NJ and some Canadian teams, all high school age. We had a couple practices and a scrimmage vs the NY group before things got started and I thought we were just great. Skating fast, crisp passing, wonderful ice. Then we played a Canadian team in the first round. That's when I discovered the difference between first l
  12. Bryson seems to be breaking that mold. Something to do with firing up the muscles I believe he said.
  13. Picked up 2k21 for PC, some thoughts if anyone is looking at it. It does not have the three click swing, instead you pull the mouse back to start the swing, then forward to finish. The forward tempo is key, too fast and it draws/hooks, too slow and a fade/slice. You want to be straight also, which has lead to some consternation in MP. If you hold your cursor at the side of your monitor, it will always be perfectly straight. Putting takes some getting used to, I find a 30 footer easier than a 7.The Graphics are very good, courses look and play great. There are many way to adjust the degree of
