    So much for the Utes...Joe Pesci would have a hard time making a case at this point.

    No Lions game on Thanksgiving? That does not compute. Win or lose (and they do win occasionally) the Lions game is an integral part of the Turkey Day routine...for natives like myself.
  3. For the last year, or so, I've been leaving the driver at home in favor of a left-handed club (a 42 degree Cleveland niblick). This is part of my single length fairway experiment that, so far, has worked out well.
  4. Doing something wrong, or stupid, has always made an indelible impression on me when it mattered the most. I am not suggesting that a general familiarity, with the parameters established by the governing authorities, is not efficacious...only that direct pain serves to reinforce said restrictions.
  5. Another tactic, which I found useful in hockey and baseball, is to learn the rules as you encounter them. Whenever a question arises...make a mental note of it and resolve the issue when you get home. That way the rule is tied to a specific, and actual, circumstance. Real life examples are easier to remember than hypothetical ones.
  6. The Duo-Softs have a propensity for going sideways...if you give them a good old whack. Maybe they mash too much...don't know but it seems likely.
  7. When you miss your tee time...while waiting in line at the first hole.

    Yes. Henry Beard if memory serves.

    Leaf Pile

    According to the Official Exceptions to the Rules of Golf; a ball hiding in the leaves may be declared "furtive" and the player may drop, without penalty, in a location deemed to be reasonably appropriate.
  10. For the same reason there is chicken or beef and ranch or bleu cheese.

    I like Na as well; but Fowler gives the team 3 more consonants plus an extra vowel.
  12. I can't think of anyone who makes 100 per cent of their short putts. That being said...if 2 foot putts get into your head...stop leaving the ball 2 feet away. Problem solved.
  13. Just got back from the Russell Athletic site. Unfortunately...they do not offer a Henley.
  14. I am okay with bunkers that are not in top condition at all times; but I do prefer that they have sand in them once in a while and have some strategic importance. My local has done away with a few, over the last couple years, that met neither criteria. In their place are some humps and hollows that are not as closely mowed as the surrounding areas. These islands of rough, in what would otherwise be fairway, are much more pleasing to the eye than a derelict bunker and, while playable, offer a different and compelling challenge.

    A lesson to all of us that any play could be your last. I hate it when this kind of thing happens...but it does.
  16. I shot the shit, about golf, while waiting for this unusually cold weather to subside. We are all more determined than ever to do better next time.
  17. You need to back off on the Wheaties. I have the same problem with coffee. If I have too many cups of coffee; I just kind of piss the round away.
  18. I use the Golf Pride Tour Classic in mid-sized. They are getting rather difficult to find and I fear they may have been discontinued. I still have four, however, so unless I live to be a couple hundred years old, I should be good to go.
  19. Everything in moderation...including moderation. The problem with free time is figuring out how to spend it.
  20. Sorry to hear that @Vinsk. I've had back spasms (thankfully not for a while) and they are no fun.

    Keep in mind, sports fans, that the Golden Gophers have seven national titles to their credit. The last one as recent as the Eisenhower administration.
  22. Dang it. It also pays to not think too much of yourself. I get those things confused sometimes. Tony Johnson? He's Zimbabwean...which could explain the difficulty.
  23. Holy shit! It pays not to overthink these things.
  24. Sounds like he's from Africa. There aren't any elephant grave yards in Australia or New Zealand. Pay particular attention to how he says "where". It has a slightly South African flavor.
  25. A professional would find my home course quite demanding. You have to park your car yourself and no one comes around to pick up your bag. You have to pay for practice balls and there are no reporters present. Your tee time is not etched in stone and the slow guys might steal the march if, four egg sample, you decide to drain the tank before heading out. Once underway there are sewers, goose turds, trash, and less than desirable ground conditions to deal with. Most of the groups you encounter are more concerned with consuming alcohol than they are playing golf. So...no...a professional would not fare well on my home course.
