  1. Awesome! That index should be coming down with score like that.
  2. When I first started golfing at age 16, I would often play balls that I found in the hazard. Once a high school buddy and I waded into a water hazard after searching for a ball and ended up hauling out about 600 balls in 30 minutes. We split the booty after being run off the course. I have been hooked ever since on ball hunting. I can't help myself when I am alone on the course and get in the mood to search. Fast forward to where I never play these balls as I have only been playing new balls of the same type for the past 10 years. I now have 2,000 balls in my garage (they don't take up much space at all; I am not a hoarder by any means). I have range privileges at my club so I don't need to beat them into a field somewhere. I could sell them on Craigslist perhaps, but not sure if anyone would be interested. Any ideas?
  3. I am seeing the EXACT same thing down to the T.
  4. @iacas put me down for an eagle. Have had a number of them over the years, but no hole-in-one yet. Did have have a hole-in-one on a mulligan when playing alone last years, so I don't count that.
  5. Just looked this up. Very interested in hearing more about it. How does it drive you crazy? Are you not recommending the product?
  6. What is the course rating, slope , and yardage from bothe white and blue tees? I decided to play from the blue tees from my new course instead of whites since I think my handicap will end up being better.
  7. I live in a small city, Delaware, Ohio. There is a very nice executive course owned by the city called Hidden Valley. It gets a lot of play. It also has a driving range. They post the finances on the city website. I don't think they charge enough for memberships, which run about $320 per year and they have a 10% discount for paying early in the year and also a lesser price for seniors. In 2018 they had $183,000 in their golf course fund. $68,000 for personnel and $115,000 designated as "other". In 2017 they had $150,000 for personnel and $64,000 for "other". I can't seem to locate it, but I think they typically spend about $180k per year, but only have maybe $140k in revenue.
  8. Speaking of white belts, my favorite is the 30 handicap showing up in loud mouth pants with a waistline similar to John Daly's. I was at a muni last year heading to the club house and a guy in his 60's was walking my way all decked out like Al Czervik and the greens keeper starts laughing and tells him "this ain't caddy shack". Because the greens keeper is about 6'-2" and 250 lbs, the guy said nothing.
  9. Hey it might get to 60 deg F in Ohio this week, rejoice!
  10. Oh baby am I excited. Just got grips put on 15 clubs and a putter. Might sleep with them tonight.😋
  11. OK, I can see them now. I was having some computer issues yesterday I guess. Nice swing! Oh, and sounds like you may have insulted me 😊 I learned a new term.
  12. Earned 7 varsity letters in a decent-sized (AAA) high school in Ohio. Football and track. Hold the 8th grade and freshman discus record. I peaked in 8th grade as I stopped growing at about 5'-9". Picked all of the wrong events and positions as I assumed I might grow as tall as my dad who is 6'-2".
  13. OK. I thought I had allowed adds on this site, looks like I have more work to do. Sorry about that.
