    challenges of senior golfers

    Has anyone switched from a typical 6000 yard municipal course to an executive course of...say...4000 to 4500 yards? This has worked out great for me. I was invited to local and very well-maintained executive course last year. The mens club of about 20 members has a median age of 65 to 70. It is a great club with excellent morale and good competition. A few guys are near scratch; some are single digit; many are around bogey golf. When I turned 65 last March I decided to switch from the munis and make this my regular course. It has been a fine year, and I absolutely love my new home course.

    Best Shot of the Week

    We had exceptionally nice weather for Christmas Day in Portland, OR....50 degrees; sunny; no wind......I scooted out to Greenlea Golf Course in Boring, OR, a well maintained 9 hole executive course which is great for winter golf.......I had a so-so round for me (6 over after 8 holes) until I got to the par three 9th......that tee shot was my shot of the week: pin high; eight feet to the right of the hole...sank the birdie putt

    Rickie fowler has a stupid hat

    I think his style is great, and I think he is great; a real breath of fresh air. (PS: It's a drag that so many older people routinely bash on the styles of younger people; can you say "creeping old fartism"?) (PPS: I'll be 60 years old this winter). !!!!Bravissimo Fowler!!!!!

    Best Shot of the Week

    On the dogleg par 4 7th at my home course, I hit a 3-wood damn near as well as I have ever hit it, winding up two and a half feet from the hole. The easy birdie putt was a way cool ending to an average round (they had sent me out on #8 to start because the course was crowded).

    Best Shot of the Week

    Once again this week, the putter is on fire; I was co-winner of the "low putts" award at the weekly men's club mini-tournament .

    Best Shot of the Week

    After the wettest spring in 80 years, we finally have good weather in pdx. In re "shot of the week", I'll just say that the putter was magic: 5 holes; 5 putts. 8-).

    2010 Ryder Cup

    When Overton was yelling and screaming after his holeout from the fairway on Monday, it was just flat embarrassing. I realize that the following is a very oldskool attitude that represents the opposite end of the sporting continuum, but still, does anyone else remember the vibe of the great Joe DiMaggio? No bullshit. No yelling and screaming and making a big racket. Just immortally sublime performance. And a legacy as very possibly the greatest centerfielder of all time (and a damn good amateur golfer).
