  1. I have broken 90 several times. Based on my driver distance average and USGA suggestions (and others on this site), I play appropriate tees. I have found that knowing the distances I can comfortably hit each club, especially 100 yards in, and keeping away from trouble are keys for me. AND no three putts! Best, -Marv
  2. In denial that it's his own damn fault...Self-centered behavior. Justanopinion. Best, -Marv
  3. Norwegians say, "No bad golf weather, just bad golf clothes." I adhere to that rule, up to a point, and maintain various kinds of light thermal layering and cart gloves. But wind chill rules for me. We get the Blue Norther here (thank you, Minnesota!)...Generally begins with a cold damp or wet wind that cuts me like a knife. So I watch for the temperature swings but pay attention to wind speed, direction and chill factor. Don't like 40's anymore, 50's may be OK. Best, -Marv
  4. Great to be back on topic! Thank you. This style of play, I've found, really requires patience, paying attention to distances I actually CAN hit...playing within myself, not the other guy's game. Fortunately, I hit my driver in the fairway, though not particularly long. Then I try to own the 2nd shot. I try to see each shot not only for needed distance to set up the next shot to the green from my preferred distance, but to see every shot as a green light, yellow light or red light in terms of risk. Now that injuries are not hampering me, the HCP will fall IF I have the mental toughness to do this. Best, -Marv
  5. My nemesis...when it's back, I start opening my stance to try to find a straight shot. Crazy! Glad you found that which was lost. Best, -Marv
  6. I watch Golf VLOGS UK on YouTube. Set in and around Bolton. They often play in rain and some cold...and they WALK. Even 80-year-old The Dad. I wondered if I could do that. Best, -Marv (Co. D, 2nd Bn./16th Inf. Reg., 1st Inf Div BRO)
  7. Can a drop of glue be added? I'm considering the screw ins but don't like the loss rate. Best, -Marv
  8. Doctor? Physical therapy? Don't push it. Best, -Marv
  9. If the pros had to play with the course conditions we sometimes encounter at our local munis, they wouldn't score so well either. Best, -Marv
  10. #18 at Hawk's Creek, Fort Worth...Two-tiered green. Best, -Marv
  11. Thank you for this. I'm old and recovery from 2017 injuries has changed my physical abilities. Lately, I have found setup/address to be a priority focus. [Standing a bit closer and taller, and taking dead aim to a target with the leading edge of the club face, puts my hands a bit higher at address.] Maybe it's just narrowing down the swing thoughts, and it could be wrong for others. But that one focus seems to have to helped me with repeatability of results in practice and on the course. HCP coming back down, slowly. Best, -Marv
  12. Recently saw a guy pick up and flip his ball up with a putter. Hit him hard, square in the forehead and knocked him down. Needs more practice. Best, -Marv
  13. The Cleveland Classic driver was a beauty. My second irons, sometimes first, are Cleveland TA6 with ActionLite senior flex shafts and a couple of Cleveland wedges. Most forgiving clubs, second only to the OLD Launcher irons. I current use a Cleveland Altitude driver, slightly shortened to fit me. A fairway finder! Best, -Marv
  14. He is an elite golfer who is more under scrutiny than others. Don't sell him short on this. He hasn't been exactly unsuccessful with his scientific method, time between shots aside. He has probably studied his own physiology for a long time and knows exactly what he wants to strengthen - and how - and has the science to back it up. I suspect "bulk up", to him, means something different than we think. Best, -Marv
