  1. Would You Rather…? #16: Hit the ball as solidly but, due to some luck or whatever, score relatively poorly for you. Hit the ball poorly but, due to some luck or some holed chips or whatever, score really well. It would be more fun to hit poorly and score really well. Just imagine all your buddies...… "I just don't under stand it, he cannot play good at all, but keeps kicking my butt". Just imagine that par 3..... Over water...…. Mishit, and it goes short and instead of splash, a turtle comes to the surface and the ball bounces off the shell and onto the green 6" from the hole...…. who wouldn't want that kind of luck to happen....
  2. Probably no where near as much as it should have been..... I'd hate to think of how many animals were killed due to that kind of human stupidity.
  3. Flipped a quarter...…….. KC Chiefs !!!!!!!!
  4. No need to be in too much of a rush, There are people that have been playing for years that still not quite on the "right path". EVERY tour pro still struggles sometimes. Take your next lesson as soon as you can and talk to the instructor about all your concerns. Good Luck....
  5. LOL - They look like eggs...… Ever try to swallow one and have it pass through your system?
  6. IMO, Nice concept, but, not going to help as much as the concept lets on. Still have to read the break right and get your speed right. This will not help poor technique and if you are using good technique, you are already putting good. I'll change my opinion once I start seeing everyone on tour going to this......

    Wedge

    I am one of the crazy ones. My Lob is a 64Deg. I practice with it at least as much as any other. Typically more. I can use it from 45 yds and in when I need to lob type shots over a pitch and run. In MY case, seemed like wedges were my best clubs and have to work harder on the others...…
  8. Normal round...… 45 Min.. I have about 20 within a 45 min drive from my house.
  9. Mark and Becky are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. Mark says to Becky, “Becky, I was wondering…have you ever cheated on me?” Becky replies, “Oh Mark, why would you ask such a question now? You don’t want to ask that question…” “Yes, Becky, I really want to know. Please…” “Well, all right. Yes, three times…” she admitted. “Three? Well, when were they?” he asked. “Remember when you were 35 years old and you really wanted to start your own business and no bank would give you a loan? And then, one day, the bank president himself came over to the house and signed the loan papers, no questions asked?” “Oh, Becky, you did that for me! I respect you even more than ever, to do such a thing for me. So, when was number two?” he asked. “Remember when you had that last heart attack and you were needing that very tricky operation, and no surgeon would touch you? And then, how out of the blue, Dr. DeBakey came all the way up here to do the surgery himself, and then you were in good shape again?” she said. “I can’t believe it! Becky, you should do such a thing for me, to save my life. I couldn’t have a more wonderful wife. To do such a thing, you must really love me. I couldn’t be more moved. So, all right then, when was number three?” he asked, racking his brain. “Remember a few years ago, when you really wanted to be president of the golf club and you were 17 votes short..?”
  10. I would say a lot depends on what your overall golf goal is. Tour player, Local tournaments, socialize with a few friends, League, or just get out and enjoy getting out of the house. Lessons typically will not hurt. You can go out to the range on your own daily, but, if you are practicing poor technique, you will get really good at doing things poorly and will make it more difficult to fix in the future. Frequency of lessons would depend on your goals, affordability, and your understanding and practice of each lesson. Just as important, is finding the right coach that fits you. Kind of like giving a job interview...… LOL Good Luck
  11. Would You Rather #15... Would you rather show up to the course looking and feeling terrible, and shoot the best round of your life, or look and feel your best, but shoot the worst score of your life? It's going to be very difficult to shoot the worst score of my life, I am pretty sure I've already done that..... LOL Given these only 2 options, probably opt for the feeling like crap and shoot a great round.
