  1. The thread title is the name of an interesting, if not alarming article that popped into my inbox earlier today. https://www.golfadvisor.com/articles/are-helmets-in-the-future-golf I don't see it happening, but if it did not sure how much golf I would be playing after that. Thoughts? Comments?
  2. Now that he is retiring from his broadcasting, I would love to see Johnny Miller as a captain. I know it would never happen, as he is seen as too controversial....... BUT imagine the conversations between him and the players behind closed doors.
  3. Saw the article. 2 strokes on average since the 90's doesn't seem like a big enough reason to warrant a discussion, at least in my mind, about a "distance" issue. My observation from our 2 years literally feet from a hole on a golf course, is people may be hitting longer but the 2 full 5 gallon buckets of golf balls I still have (after not buying a golf ball in 2 years) tells me they aren't hitting any straighter. :) And yes I did respond to the poll.
  4. Have watched this thread for a while, and really except for the PGA tour is hitting the golf ball further, overpowering courses really a problem??? At any course? Seems from what I have read and observed over the years, the average score across the country really hasn't dropped all that much even with longer balls, better equipment etc. Don't understand why this is an issue the USGA is worried about for the mere mortal golfer.
  5. It used to be getting away from the phone and enjoying the peace and quiet outdoors. Sadly those days seem to be more and more often going away as people can't turn their electronics off on the course. Have many friends that I rarely play golf with anymore because they spend more time texting, talking and tweeting than golfing. My favorite thing about golf is being outside away from the daily grind, enjoying the challenge of playing a game that can't ever really be perfected.
  6. My 3 wood that I have been using for a long, long time is 14 degrees and low profile. I use it on a lot, both from the fairway on and quite often off the tee. Back in the day it was marketed as a strong 3 and is usually my most trusted long club.
  7. Interesting, just watched a video on the bunt drive. I can think of a variety of times it might be used in future rounds. New idea and concept for me. Don't think I had ever heard the term Need to watch the video I saw a few more times and take this idea to the range to try it out.
  8. For me, if I get lazy and miss a few days of planks and stretching my back lets me know it when I golf. Really should just be happy to be playing golf after the initial injury and keep up the exercises, but sometimes I get off my routine.
  9. That's what I have done in the past. Sometimes can take a while when you have an area where the selection is large. Guess that is a good problem as opposed to where we moved from where you had very, very limited quality instructors and facilities.
  10. Perhaps a few tips or ideas on how to do that? Or link to thread where it has been discussed concisely? Just moved to new area that has MANY instructors and courses, some very well known, obviously many others that aren't... How do you find an instructor that is good for you and your game or personality?
  11. What about the Jubilee course in St. Andrews? After reading Oliver Horovitz's book again a few weeks ago very curious what others think of that course. He seemed to like it quite a bit in his book An American Caddie in St Andrews (which if you haven't read, you should) but don't hear many people talk about it when planning trips. Hoping to head that way myself in 2019. Only golf trip to the U.K. I have previously had we played several of the Royal courses in England and didn't get to Scotland.
  12. Same here. Here is a twist on the topic, and perhaps should be a thread all its own.... When in a group with others, and a person in your group hits an errant ball, do you yell "fore" if you think somebody is in harm's way immediately or wait for the person who hit the ball? If I think they might be hit, I yell no matter who hit the ball.
  13. While we were still in snow country we wanted to workout and not be inside just sitting on the couch watching TV all winter and bought a Total Gym. It has been great. Can find tons of workouts on YouTube for strength building or weight loss or whatever you are looking for. OK...… Let the Chuck Norris joke begin. 🙂
