  1. At my best before back issues stopped me from playing I was push draw with my irons. And after reading a couple of the long threads on hitting driver here I found that hitting a fade was easier, match up with my swing pattern better. Hybrid was also draw. The 3 wood was the one I hadn’t quite got dialed in at the time. I still had a two way miss there
  2. It’s a good idea. I have a pic of the checkout line. But yeah. It was crazy.
  3. Gas prices are down. That’s really all I got
  4. Ugh.....stuck in the dictatorship of Washington
  5. I hope I’m wrong. But I’m not very optimistic about inslee. Here on the east side it’s pretty much just people getting stir crazy and really pissed that they can’t social distance while doing outdoor activities. And yet everyone can go to Lowe’s and be jammed against each other and stuff like that. It’s frankly getting dumb
  6. I have to say, I have never actually heard people consider golf elitist. Maybe it was at one point. But the cost of golfing is fairly reasonable compared to most hobbies in today’s world. I don’t get a reaction either way from people when I tell them I golf. Most people don’t care.
  7. Great question since at this time we seem to be the only state that shut down fishing also. It’s pretty bleak at the moment here
  8. Well, all I k ow that here in Washington I am not counting on being able to golf, or fly fish which is my other hobby for the very foreseeable future. Governor seems to be hinting at not opening anything up for quite some time
  9. To play a round for the first time in 4yrs is the top goal for me!!! then as long as things go well with my back build a good practice routine
  10. I dont know what it really looks like in other parts of the country. I am in Spokane WA. Even with the shutdown of some businesses, and stay at home orders it really doesn't seem too much different here. They are saying traffic is down. But my guess is it cant be down more then 20-25% because its not really noticeable. I know that alot of small businesses are closed and i haven't been "downtown" to see what it looks like but i dont see ghost town at all driving around.
  11. Here in spokane washington, steakhouse called clinkerdaggers. Spendy but love the prime rib. Also looking forward to some good mexican food. I'm not really a take out guy by nature
  12. Hello all. I figured I would say hi here since it has been about 3yrs since I have been active on this forum. I always loved this place. However, some chronic lower back issues have stopped me from playing for the last 3+yrs. it’s been frustrating enough that I actually threw my clubs in the trash about a trip ago. However, it seems that I have turned the corner enough that when this shutdown is over I can start working into playing again so I dusted off my “lsw” book and I’m gonna get to work Hopefully building a better swing along the way
  13. I think that they will both get it done. I think McIlroy will get it done first. Although i wouldn't be suprised either way. McIlroy has shown that he can play Augusta well, and the PGA has the toughest field.
  14. I'm kind of trying to wrap my head around this whole thing still.....sooooo.....are people mad because the lpga is limiting the ability to see more skin of young ladies playing golf because they only watch to stare at the girls bodies.....are people mad because a company is enforcing a dress code just like thousands of other companies due in all different fields of work.... I guess i just don't quite understand it.
  15. "Length of skirt, skort, and shorts MUST be long enough to not see your bottom area (even if covered by under shorts) at any time, standing or bent over." This one stood out to me. I quick google photo search showed plenty of outfits that probably wouldn't fit under this. I guess i haven't paid super close attention. Some of those skorts are super, super short.
  16. i voted neither also. just like others have said too much talent for anyone to be a dominate #1. i kinda lean towards speith as finishing with the best resume. he is great in all aspects of his game except driving. but he is good enough there and his iron play is really good. he hits a ton of greens...add in being a fair amount younger...
  17. I bought a push cart two years ago...thought they were cheesy till i played with a guy who had one. dang near like having a caddy, he was always fresh, stored everything and easy to push. I bought one the next day and retired my shoulders. They were happy lol. I went to a 19 hybrid bout 4yrs ago. After hitting one on the range finally instead of 3 iron. Just dumb not too.
  18. the article is typical fluff with no real value. In the past i haven't taken any aimpoint classes because none ever near me. I do see now that there is a level 1 instructor not too far away. I can't find any info on what the different levels of instructors means. I would be down if i got the opportunity somewhere reasonably close. I'm sure it would help me.
  19. I thought it was a pretty good tournament personally. It was nice watching a new course. I thought it looked good on tv. It seemed to be plenty tough enough for most of the players out there especially when the wind did blow. I don't really care all that much about the big names not being on the leaderboard. Play better. Hit those huge fairways. It looked like some good golf got played. I'm weird though. I enjoyed chambers bay also.
  20. matsuyama looks like he might post -12.....that will make it interesting as the pressure mounts behind him
  21. Koepka is looking good so far....When your in the lead, and your hitting every GIR in tough conditions you gotta feel good at the moment.
  22. what does everybody think. Is it a 3 horse race right now??? Matsuyama is trying to charge but he is 5 back. Fleetwood seems to be going the wrong way. There are some good guys at -7, but they are gonna have to terrorize the back nine and hope the leaders come back a bit.
  23. I have to admit im pulling for fowler....I would be fine with koepka winning also. He is only 3 shots back and his hanging in there....There is still a ways to go. but harman and koepka are looking solid so far. Having said that...its only 3 shots....the wind is nasty out there. alot can still happen only 1 or two mistakes and those 3 shots will disappear...
  24. It looks like alot of fun to me too...From up tee's obviously but to me it comes off as really nice visually.
  25. Yep, looks that way lol... Koepka is putting together a really good round also.
