    2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills

    US Open streaming is working again for me. Maybe the issues have been fixed?

    2018 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills

    Leading score won't be far under par, so I imagine the cut line will be pretty high. If some of them can hang around +4 or +5 the rest of the day, they're not going to be that far back and should make the cut.

    What am I supposed to do at work now that the streaming is down? Actually work? Pfft. Going to be a long lunch today.

    2019 Masters Lottery

    Got an email today saying the lottery is open. That means it's almost time to get another rejection letter from Augusta National. Can't wait!

    2018 Masters Tournament Discussion Topic

    I'm watching on the featured groups on masters.com. Thought they were showing the replay of him going into the water over and over. Nope. I think he put 5 in.

    Sergio pulled a Tin Cup on 15 carding a gentlemen's 13. Tournament over for him.

    Yardages Throughout the Bag

    A little over red Driver through 8. 9-LW is about spot on.
  8. I really like the Top Flite Gamer or Gamer Tour. Less than $20 a dozen and they perform pretty well. Through my own extensive "testing", I've bounced them off cart path, trees, rocks, etc. and if you can find them, they hold up. They seem to perform almost as well as the Taylormade's TPx I play in the summer and have about the same distance.

    Which move changed your game for good?

    My big change came when I stopped gripping the club so hard I tore my hands up every round and also when I started swinging with a slow smooth swing instead of trying to smash everything. Lost about a club distance for each club, but the solid consistent contact has lead to much better scores.

    Highest Price You've Paid For Green Fees

    Up until now my highest is $85 for a round at a country club near me. Plan on going much higher than that when I'm able to play Torrey Pines, Bethpage Black, Erin Hills, Pebble Beach, etc.

    Go to club or shot from 125 yards. READ ORIGINAL POST!!!

    Normal swing with solid contact my PW should be around 125. Could also take a nice easy 9 or an out of my shoes GW depending on what the miss could be long or short.

    Wearing a Wedding Ring while Playing

    I'm getting married in a few months and my fiance got me two silicone rings to wear for golf, other sporting activities, or any place we wouldn't want to take/lose the real ring. They were approximately $20 a piece and are very flexible and comfortable. There lots of places online you can find them. I had usually taped a few of my fingers to prevent slipping and blisters anyway, so I started wearing the silicone rings instead and they work like a charm.

    Simulator vs the real thing

    It's fun to get out and swing the clubs using the simulator, especially if there are no other options due to stupid mother nature. I went a few weeks ago with some friends and we all had a blast. Plenty of ribbing just like on the real course. The positives were less venturing through the woods and other areas looking for golf balls. As for the actual "golf" part of it, I'd take it with a grain of salt. It seems like half my shots had draw on them according to the simulator and I don't think I've ever hit a draw in my whole life on the course. That could've been the mat causing draws, my god awful winter swing, beer, or some combination of all three. But it felt good to have a club in my hands again and swing them no matter the results.
  14. I use the Swing By Swing app on my phone for distances and score keeping. Not sure if there are any better or worse apps out there, but it happened to be the first free one I found on the app store when I was looking. Seems to be pretty accurate on distance. They try to get you to pay for the premium version by holding back a few of the features, but it is good enough for what I use it for.
