  1. America’s best cities for golfers What is the best city in the U.S. for golfers? It’s a subjective question, but one that Coventry Direct has looked to answer in a recent study. Coventry Direct collected data on each of America’s 100 largest cities (based on... What say you? Where is the best place to live and play golf? I think this list did a somewhat decent job of weighing all the factors going into deciding the list (although I feel like maybe they glossed over taxes...California).
  2. I had no idea that PGA players earn retirement money from making the cut in an event; and winning the Fed Ex cup $1million of the stated prize money goes into their retirement account with the lower places having their entire Fed Ex prize put into retirement accounts. And based on the article it is not just the top guys who can get a hefty account. Seems like a pretty good gig, if you can qualify Here’s how much pro golfers earn in ‘free’ retirement money from the PGA Tour - MarketWatch This year the top golfer will win a FedEx bonus of $15 million
  3. You can get better at any age. Many here would trade their swing for this one…
  4. Curious to see what y'all think. I'm leaning toward picking the second option, but a small part of me wants to vote for the two beside it (higher and lower). Yes, it's predictive. Who knows? We're not medical doctors (most of us, anyway), and even those of us who are have no insight into his specific medical situation. Just, as they say, "taking the temperature of the room."
  5. I was reading a thread earlier that got me to thinking about my future in playing golf. At some point, everyone's body is going to grow into an unplayable condition. Of course that unplayable condition is relative to the individual. I see older guys every day, out on the course who can still hit the ball down the fairway. Not very far, but still down the fairway. Yes, they may slow up play, but anyone who has read my TST posts on slow play know my thoughts on that topic. So when would you know that you no longer can play this game? Would your body after waking up one day,
  6. It has been exactly 6 months after I retired. Here's what happened to my golf after I have retired. I have been playing 5 - 6 times a week. However, a simple majority of the rounds have been less than 18 holes. I simply quit when I get too tired, get hungry, etc.. Being able to play everyday, I don't feel I need to finish around. With more time, I thought I'd get warm up before a round but I don't. I feel I can learn more by playing. Instead, I go to range practice whenever I can't play a round - raining, course bought out, etc.. I avoid playing during busy ho
  7. Before retirement: Practiced on weekdays for average of 60 - 90 minutes at home, and range. Did golf specific workout on Mon, Tue, Thur, and Friday. Played 2 rounds on weekend. Played about 125 rounds in 2015. In retirement: Practice 3 times on weekdays for average of of 90 - 180 minutes at home, range, and/or in field. Do golf specific workout for 2 days, 1 day off, 2 days, 1 day off, ... Play 2 rounds on weekdays, and 1 - 2 rounds on weekends. Play about 170 - 190 rounds in 2016. Post in Member Swings forum.
  8. If Tiger is correct, and his days of playing competiive golf are indeed over, then he joins the ranks of. Bobby Jones, and Lord Byron Nelson. Jones retired at the age of 28. right after completing the REAL Grand Slam. He then put his wife and children first, followed by his profession of practicing law. Nelson retired at the age of 34 after competing the AMAZING year of 1945 (18 wins, including 11 in a row!). Tiger is in VERY. good company!!
