  1. 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
  2. Hats off to Matsuyama...brilliant stuff!!! Amen!!!!....and....he also had more birdies than anyone, according to the talking heads
  3. indeed!!!...super putt on 17!!!
  4. Amen!!!!!
  5. Wow!!!!!!.....a totally studly par-saving putt by TW on 16!!!!!
  6. 6 under today!!!.......a solid Friday so far for TW!!!
  7. On the par 3 ninth, I chipped in for birdie from 40 feet .
  8. 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!!!!!
  9. 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).
  10. 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 .
  11. 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-).
  12. 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).
  13. Finally, the calm voice of reason (in the middle of what may be the MOST weird, unrealistic and out-of-touch with-reality thread ever in the forum). "Giant thank you", iacas.
  14. This is an excellent post; just flat well-written. !!Thank you, Shanks!!
  15. I agree completely. Thanks for the great post, nuck81.
