  2. If she's going to college then all bets are off.
  3. What happened on hole #7 with all the penalty strokes?
  4. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/srx700xxx/round/844546 This was a great 9 holes for me. It is about 7 strokes better than the norm. I have been fighting with the putter all season long. I cannot count how many 4 feet and in putts that don't hit the mark. Then it seemed like a 2 footer was 20 feet from the hole. Hopefully I can get that part under control.
  5. Congratulations! That is a very nice thing to let us in on. In my book, that's not bragging. I hope there are more wins in the future.
  6. Well, it was bad but I'll post it anyway. The overhead of this course does not show all the nooks and crannies that a ball finds its way into. Not a good place for a hacker as you can tell. My driver felt like it was running in reverse. I finally had a good showing on the Par 3's. That was about the only thing I can be happy about. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/srx700xxx/round/633683
  7. Right now I have a 13° and 18° woods in the bag. I do not have good luck with the 13° off the deck so I use the 18°. I hit them halfway decent off from a tee. If the ball is sitting up in the rough I will use the 18° without hesitation. I also have been swapping a 17° and 21° hybrid in and out of the bag and when I get comfortable with them I can see the 18° wood sitting it out. The distances between the 17° hybrid and 18° wood favors the wood by about 15 yards when struck cleanly. Edit: Clubs are Nike Covert Tour models so the lofts can be adjusted.
  8. This round is over a month old but hole #3's hole-in-one will probably be the highlight of my fledgling golf career. I got out of work 4 hours early to play but got sidelined for awhile when some lady decided to t-bone me halfway home. I got snapped sideways pretty good and the left side of my face felt weird. My neck and shoulders were so so and the next day were not good. Oh well, might as well do what I set out to do. This was also my best round ever (tied later on). Nothing great but I did break a goal I set out for this year. I've done it 7 times so far..... yahoo! I see I was sl
  9. I am at the point where I don't think I will be reporting anymore scores for handicap. They are going to be practice rounds because I am losing way too many balls because of leaves. It's not feasible to always be heading back to where you last hit without pissing people off. It totally wrecks an already meager game and only makes the blood boil when you see exactly where it lands and wait for any roll out or kicking to the side. You can search till the cows come home and not find the damned thing. A leaf blower would probably be illegal to carry. I have been using my hat to whisk a pat
  10. It's always a good time to scan the woods for lost balls while you are taking a leak. Make your stops 170 to 200 yards on the right side of the fairway.
  11. I played so bad that I seriously thought about not coming back for the rest of the year.
  12. I have bought a few of the switch blade types along with the prongs exposed. I have been using the switch blade types of late and they also have the course logo ball marker with them. I put one in my cart and walking bag. The only problem I have encountered with them is when they switch open by themselves and you have two sharp points trying to stab your leg or rip your pants. The long pants that I have been wearing have a pocket inside of the pocket and I try to put it back with the button side out. So far so good in that regard. The cheaper one (Maxfli) does the same. Just a little de
  13. I was thinking the same thing about hitting the sweet spot and having less vibration. I did see one of mine fly off while out on the course (well, a little off). It was in that same area as before. The ground down there is very hard and I have a hell of a time hitting anything decent to get back on the fairway or make a stab at the green through the trees. That one also had silicon on it (Golf Pride Tour Wrap grip). I have heard of Game Golf sending tags for free that have been lost. It might be worth a shot especially if you are a regular user of the product.
  14. I got home one day from a round and was cleaning my clubs when I noticed my 5i tag was missing. I dumped the bag upside down in case it was in the bottom. I went and uploaded my round and seen the last 5i tag was on number 7 hole from a driver slice off the tee. I am real familiar with the area. I asked my brother if he wanted to go on a search at the golf course. It was dark out but we found it in probably 30 seconds of search. It was about 5 feet from where I remember taking the shot. The mowers in the morning would have made it a lost cause. I did away with the silicon and have
  15. I played a round with someone last year that always seems to be just a little better when I worked my tail off getting a bogey or double. I've seen them whiff or hit it a foot in the thick rough but they don't count them. When they go into the trees and you happen to see there ball sitting right up next to the trunk finds them hitting their next shot with no obstructions at all. It's no biggie because they are only cheating themselves but you can bet your life that I'd be calling them out if it was for money. It does get annoying when they say they "smoked you" at the lunch table at work.
  16. You sound like a candidate to be buying Lowest Score Wins. Just curious, what are the lofts of your woods, rescues, and 5i?
  17. Should the rest of the players from other countries take note too?
  18. I golfed last year into mid November (Northeast PA). I remember there were flurries in the air and it was damn cold and windy. I was wearing a knit hat pulled down over my ears. I was a little overdressed because I was sweating like crazy. I did catch a wicked cold after that little ordeal. I will try to go as long as its open. You do have the place to yourself which is kind of nice.
  19. I have a hard time seeing a 1.2 handicap avoiding any club in the bag. Look out now with that posse in the bag. Just curious, what are the lofts of your woods, rescues, and 5i? (I'm in the same boat as you but I have a legit reason for avoiding certain clubs.)
  20. Congrats on the 105! That 47 shows you can do it. At $10 a round, you know exactly what you should be doing.
  21. Longest this year is 285 yards. Game Golf average is 191 yards.
  22. I have not touched a club in over a week while my back was healing. I decided it was time to get back out there and thought why not mix it up a bit. Time to use some clubs I shy away from from time to time. I hit from the ladies tees and did not use the driver all day long. I did not try to bend the shots around the trees and played the course pretty much straight on and 'short'. It was 3w on the longer holes with some 5 irons on the doglegs. I even grabbed a 9i by mistake for a tee shot on one par 4 but hit it longer than I normally do by about 35 yards. Got a bogey so it wasn't all ba
  23. My longest this year is 285 yards on the home course. If I was to try and do that on a consistent basis, I wouldn't be playing for a week or so. My Game Golf stats currently has me at 191 yard average. If I break it down to the last 3 rounds then it shows 217 yards. Before my accidents, I remember my SkyCaddie showing 287 yards for one particular hole on a nine hole course. I have hit some great ones but for some odd reason they put a damn freakin' tree right in the middle of the fairway so that stops them dead in their tracks.
  24. I think my worst was on a par 4 with a dog leg to the left. I was playing with 3 other people that I barely knew and it was early spring so I was still in my whiff and topping faze. My tee shot on #17 with the driver went about 30 feet into the rough directly in front of the tee box. I then took a whack at the ball and it went about a foot. My next shot topped out about 50 yards and went into the rough again. I hacked at it and it just ticked the ball and it went about a 3 inches into the air and sat right back down were it started. I took another swing and it sailed into the woods. I t
  25. My course has it listed as a spikeless facility. I suppose you guys don't have any metal woods in your bag either.
