  1. Looks like I'm 6.2 miles from Duck Creek Golf Club...never played there. I do most of my practice in my backyard or on the practice course/range at Waterview Golf Club here in Rowlett. If you haven't looked into the Player's Club deal at Waterview & Buffalo Creek you should check it out. $34 a month, unlimited range balls, unlimited play on 3-hole practice course, and same on both putting and chipping greens. Great practice facilities. Brand new greens, bunkers just remodeled, work completed and just re-opened in November. The Players Club at Waterview | Golf Group | Gol
  2. I'm lucky to help clients build their backyard dream facilities....currently building "Green Complex #1" on this three green, four tee box, Par 3 Course at a private "Lake House" residence outside of Dallas.
  3. I'm thinking of getting one for my daughter's bag. She's a freshman in HS and playing her first Varsity tournaments...anyone recommend a good chipper for ladies?
  4. I need some of you guys to sell your USED G400 drivers on eBay now...hurry while my G30 still has a little trade in value.
  5. $220, most expensive single club in my bag...and I love it.
  6. I got the Sigma 2 Fetch from my wife for Christmas with the same grip/adjustment system...mine is definitely not loose feeling once adjusted.
  7. What ya doing Sunday? 🤣 It's a great course, I'm going back to play it late-Spring.
  8. Tangle Ridge in Grand Prairie, TX...fun course, LOTS of neat architectural features. I want to go back and play it myself soon.
  9. Nope, that's actually our 'home course' and where she plays 3 days a week for High School...wish I could play 3 days a week.
  10. Discovered a great course this weekend and stole a neat shot while my daughter was playing....from this shot, anyone know where we were?
  11. I play a lot of late afternoons and only have time to play 9-holes about 75% of the time...but you gotta hit it when you can.
  12. Yeah, the weekend was the only good days the whole week we were there...heavy fog and rain every other day. Still 30* warmer than it is Dallas today and I got in a round at Emerald Bay. Greens were in great shape and fun course...
  13. Shot a 41 on 9 yesterday!...was playing from the front tees with 3 young juniors.
  14. Heading to Destin in a couple of days and hoping to play Emerald Bay at the end of the week. Checking here to see if anyone local has played there recently?
  15. 2019 Break the 85-hump...set sights on 80! I have broken the 90-hump a handful of times in 2018, but my best score is still an 86 so rather than mentally trying to break 80, I'm gonna lower the hurdle and try to break 85 in 2019. If it happens and happens again, I'll lower it back down to 80. How to get there... - listen to my swing coach, do the exercises, and apply the lessons to my "game swing" - ONLY focused practice time at home and at the range - hit more fairways with driver, still my #1 problem - Minimum 30-minute backyard routine every night that I'm home:10-m
  16. 30 mins? From midnight - 6am maybe...lol DFW is really a great place for golf and getting better every year. A Ryder Cup in North Texas would be amazing! June, July, and August are not fun...even for us natives who are 'adjusted' to the heat. Team Euro would melt here. 🙂 This is very surprising to me, didn't think it would actually happen...seriously some great news for the area.
  17. I'm a VV fan too but I recently discovered the Cut Golf Yellow ($19.99/dz) and can't tell them apart. With 3 kids playing Junior golf on my dime, we will all be playing Cut Golf except the 5 year old...he gets the cheap ones.
  18. Well, if you don't like the matte balls not sure will help but for the original poster...I've played 3 rounds now with the Cut Yellow and see now reason to ever pay more (unless I need them right away). Played it side by side with a Volvik Vivid for 9-holes on our club's practice course and literally had balls lying within feet of one another at times off back-2-back tee shots. Feel around the greens, off the putter, 7-wood...couldn't tell them apart. When I have played 18-holes with them, they drive as well as VVs too. I swear if you blindfolded me (and I actually hit the ball), I wouldn
  19. Fair enough...that's why I'm using a remnant in my den. 😉
  20. Yeah, that's a lot work too when there are commercial options that aren't $$$$$ We have 4'x5' & 5'x5' hitting mats that are made with our Ultimate Tee turf with a 5/8" pad backing for +/- $500 (depending on size). They are great fairway mats with any iron and will actually hold even a 3.5" tee to allow you to hit any club in your bag. Easy to move around and you can rotate it as it wears to extend the life...why do all that work? Same material used on the new tee line here at Bay Hill Club & Lodge.
  21. I used to bag my grandfather's old Ping Eye irons (not Eye2), 1-PW with a G5 5w and driver. After I retired the iron set to 'man cave trophy' status, I kept the 1-iron in my bag just for punching out low...and setting up the old Lee Trevino joke. "If you find yourself on a golf course in a thunderstorm hold up a 1-iron...not even God can hit a 1-iron." ~ Lee Trevino
  22. Anyone tried the Samsung Gear Golf Edition watch? The Samsung Galaxy Watch Golf Edition brings a caddy right to your wrist Samsung has announced a special edition of its recently released Galaxy Watch - one that's tailor-made for golfers. The Korean company revealed... I currently have a Gear S3 watch and enjoy it but thinking of upgrading for Christmas. Oops...didn't read the whole review before posting. "And despite the new edition featuring golf smarts that apply globally, it appears, at least initially, it will only go on sale in the compa
  23. Gotta use the Amazon 'wish list' feature like the Sear's Wish Book when we were kids.
  24. Yeah, my boss only let me get away with it because it's our 'showroom display'...funny, now I sometimes catch her out there putting while I'm working during the week. 🙂
