  1. Geez been way too long since I have posted here. I had the best golf season of my life in 2019, and got down from 2018 worst HI of 23 to a lifetime best 18 HI. After my lesson last March I went from shanking every other shot to maybe hitting 1-2 shanks the rest of the year. I also focused on short game a lot last year and improved my putting tremendously when I focused on speed. Anywho- I have another lesson later this month to find what my next priority piece is in the full swing. I really want to focus this year in being a better driver of the golf ball in general. My best rounds of 2019 tended to happen when I hit driver great. I want to do that more consistently and hopefully reduce my slice tremendously.
  2. Yup. The technical approach to high level sprinting and jumping would blow some people's minds. Good coaching makes a huge difference. I sprinted/jumped at a fairly high level (D1 Top 50) and its quite amazing how much good coaching positively influences technical focus, practice methods, and proper training periodization.
  3. Yeah the research is pretty uncertain on the effects of pickle juice and reducing leg cramps. One study found that a decent amount of pickle juice could be linked to reduce duration of cramps, but not reduced frequency. Few studies have been properly conducted, and a few have even been debunked due to better more methodical studies coming along.
  4. How far in advance are you looking for recommendations? Sentosa Golf club was the highest rated combination of courses in Singapore in Tom Doak's latest Volume of the confidential guide to golf courses. I heard you have to book a little bit in advance though. Tanah Merah (Garden) was the next highest rank. It's closed Tuesday and Thursday morning. The courses you mentioned weren't rated as highly, but are probably worth checking out if your home course is a pretty average track.
  5. My recommendations for the area are: Dunes Golf and Beach Club Caledonia Legends Resort (Heathland) Arcadian Shores
  6. @Aaron from Baltimore my good friend played all the courses at streamsong and thought they were all great. He didn’t care too much for the greens at the black but I just told him he can’t putt worth a dang that’s why;) Pinehurst are would be a great choice for a lot of good golf in one area.
  7. played well yesterday. Didn't hit driver all that well (what's new) but hit irons well and putted pretty good. My sand game was pretty good as well. Shot 46 on the tough back nine of a course I play pretty often. 8.5 differential!
  8. Depends on how good your normal course is! My home course is like 11 minutes door to door, but I will travel anywhere in Houston to play a course I haven't played before. 30-45 minutes is the longest drive I make for any courses in my normal rotation. And that's really just traffic related.
  9. Yeah looks like a lot of agreement here. I say 2-3 wins worldwide and no majors but he does contend in at least two.
  10. Forest Dunes. I think the combination of the Forest Dunes course and the Reversible course (The Loop) by Doak is higher quality golf architecture than the combination at Arcadia. If you don’t care as much about strategic golf and just want great views/Scenery the Bluffs course at Arcadia is your best bet. The south course at Arcadia has mixed reviews but is interesting concept. I would prefer the courses at Forest Dunes though.
  11. Check out the book. The Summer destinations book covers your course and area and it’s a great book. Your very close with your rating is all I will say...
  12. Riverdale was actually the first course that Doak was in charge of green shaping for Dye...or so Doak says. Its on my hit list of courses to play when I visit the Denver area (wife has family on the area). yeah his impact on course architecture and architects is monumental.
  13. More like the Carl Lewis or Mike Powell of Dogs 😉
  14. Im jealous. Judging by your handicap decreases over the last year they are proving beneficial. I am doing 1-2 lessons a year right now. I know I would benefit from more often if I could make it happen...I am sure it would help my game.
  15. Well there is now. Love him or hate him he was the most influential architect of his generation. Unfortunately, a lot of his trademarks have been “cheapened” by the countless copies that had half or less of his vision.
  16. Man, not sure how I missed this topic when it was posted. Anywho-sounds like a fun challenge. With being a 18 capper I will make this a Par challenge (but will track birdies too if they happen!). My home course is a 27 hole course, so I choose my favorite Houston course that I play often as well....Memorial Park Golf Course. I have played once and made 7 pars! 11 more to go this year.
  17. Me and Colonel Bogey have had quite the competitions in our day. He is the favorite unfortunately.
  18. I assume the hole you thought this was can be found here: https://www.americanclubresort.com/golf/whistling-straits/the-straits/the-straits-hole-by-hole/no-7-shipwreck
  19. Shot 42 yesterday on the back nine of an executive course I frequent in the area. (+11). I played solid bogey golf on every hole except #13 which is my nemesis hole.
  20. Dunes Golf and Beach club, Caledonia Golf and Fish Club, Legends Resort (few different courses, but I recommend Doaks Heathland course), and Arcadian Shores is supposedly pretty good.
  21. If your going to be in Bastrop, then I recommend you play Wolfdancer at the Lost Pines Resort.
