  1. I just started reading it last night.
  2. Oh, way too far. 😟
  3. I like both of those. But I am actually talking about Brea Creek 9 and Birch Hills - also in Brea.
  4. Which course is that? My favorite local courses are a 9 hole exec course and an 18 hole exec course. But primarily because I can play a round in a reasonable time frame.
  5. I am one of the guys who has less trouble with my tee shot but tends to be a disaster between there and the green.
  6. This is supposedly it. 2 more to go. Although I believe there are rumors of a potential spinoff series. Possibly a prequel.
  7. It definitely won’t be Cercei. Arya will do her faceless man trick to get close to her and then take her out. Probably after the Hound and the Mountain kill each other.
  8. I am with you on this one. This year I am taking the philosophy of just trying to get within 150 yards or so in 2. Then I can at least get to within chipping distance in 3. If that means driver or 3w off the tee and then 6-7-8-9 or pw for my second shot to get within striking distance, I can maybe get there in 5 strokes. If I could just eliminate 7s and 8s and limit 6s to par 5 holes only I would probably drop 4 or 5 strokes easily per round.
  9. The advice I have read is move up a tee. Unless you’re already playing from the white tees, like me. In which case just play for bogey on those longer holes and don’t sweat it. Wedge shots into greens may SEEM easy but they aren’t for most mere mortals. Get close, chip onto the green and 2 putt. You are describing how to play strategically, based upon your abilities. I have been trying to do that recently and it is helping.
  10. No experience with them yet. But I may pick up one of their new drivers - the ISO-T.
  11. Most of my blow up holes I can attribute to one or two really bad shots, usually tee shot or second shot. Eliminate several of those and my score would of course go way down.
  12. If I am hitting the ball well I don’t worry about the score.
  13. My instructor told me to always work your way up to driver from wedges when practicing. I tend to do worse when I go to the range before playing. But I have the Sklz swing trainer and I give that a few swings before I tee off.
  14. After last weekend my new goal for 2019 is to improve my iron approach shots. I am brutal from 6i to pw and on the executive course I play a lot there are way too many short holes to try to hit the green off the tee if you don’t trust your irons and wedges. I may be one of the few people who is less worried about my driver than my pitching wedge.
  15. Not much any more. One or two beers a week and the occasional shot of single malt or a dry martini.
  16. I have been playing with the Vice Drive balls all weekend. And I must say that for a 2-piece Surlyn ball it is just fine for my game. At some point I may try their other balls, but at under $20/dz it’s a no brainer. I don’t lose any distance off the tee and it feels great coming off the clubhead. And if I rinse a few it doesn’t bother me too much.

    TV Shows

    Game. Of. Thrones.
  18. I have an assortment of different brands that I am working through right now. If I had to choose a favorite right now it would be the yellow Srixon Soft Feel. I also like the Snell Get Sum. I am all about the $21.00 and under ball. At least until I start playing much better.
  19. I’ll go wildcard and say Arya Stark.
  20. I shot a hole in one on the first hole a couple of weeks ago. It didn’t matter what I did afterward. I was set for the day!
  21. Tour Edge HL3 iron-woods Gigagolf irons Gigagolf wedges Tommy Armour putter
  22. A couple of little 9 hole courses in Orange County, CA whose names I forgot. The one I really miss is the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station course. I was a Navy reservist in the late 80s and early 90s and I played there a lot. Since it was pre 9/11 I had no problem getting my civilian buddies on base and the rates were ridiculously low. Not the prettiest track, but challenging. On Saturday afternoons in the summer it was fairly wide open. No crowds.
