  1. Tuesday was the day.... it was it. I took a vacation day went to a course out in the country to enjoy the fall colors and was playing a leisurely round by myself. Started bogey then went 6 straight pars.... I was 3 over after 12 (3 bogies/9 pars-I can't make a birdie to save my life but that's another story) Thinking that I have a really good chance to do the break-80 thing. Got to 13 and errrrhhhh...backed up.... shoot... there goes my rhythm.... I can still do this I tell myself.... relax. bogey-par-bogey-par-bogey.... dammit.... 6 over. just need a bogey or better

  6. So, I asked my wife when she started keeping scorecards. I never did. She pulls out 2 boxes of scorecards dating back to 2004 which was the year we started living together. The first one was our trip to Orlando where we played in a tournament at Grande Pines, then we played at Shingle Creek and ChampionsGate. Every year since then we would go on a week long business trip in July, and a two week trip in January or February. We travel to play golf so we have a lot of scorecards! In October 2015 I retired and we joined our current club for 2016. She has every scorecard for rounds that we p

  7. At the tail end of a 16 hour day today I got an email for a golf invite to Trump Westchester on Friday. My first thought was to say no due to work commitments and then well I sent my admin an email and let her know I was taking Friday off. Haven’t hit a ball in over two weeks but it is one of my favorite tracks so why not? Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  11. I agree. Something should be done. @Undershooter30 and I talked about it and we've found new managers for those teams. Everyone please welcome @mpatrickriley and @GeekingGolf to the league. They've agreed to fill the lineups every week and are allowed to make moves and win games just like normal owners.

  12. Most of us enjoy watching the Class of 2011 on the pro tour. I have had the opportunity to watch the future classes of golfers on a much lower level, but never the less, more enjoyable on a personal level. A close friend of mine has a grandchild that is the number 3 player on his high school team as a freshman. A year of so ago, my friend and I were playing golf and he noticed some improvement in my game and asked how he heck did that happen. I told him that I was taking lessons from a local PGA teaching pro. He then asked me to see if the pro would be willing to work with a youngst

  13. *raises hand while being a slight bit ashamed* I have a large tote with all of my scorecards. Over 30 courses and scores from 73-116. 116 was my first 18 hole round. They also serve as stat trackers. I keep track of FIR, GIR, and putts. It has been really neat to see my progress from early scorecards to more recent ones.

  15. Played a short 9-hole course I hadn't played in a long time. Only had my practice wedges and an old putter with me as I was originally headed to a short Par 3 but got re-routed due to construction. This is a pretty short course, too .. just looked it up and it's only 1930 yds .. so with a PW as my longest club figured it would be good practice. And it was. Generally kept the ball moving towards the green and, despite a lot of very thin grass and mud, chipped/pitched onto the greens well enough. Think I made more bogies today - which for me is good - than any other round so far, so I gues

  16. It really is saying something. The 400 is very good. But it doesn’t have s thing over this for me. Additional note: Our Superintendent saw me on the course today came up to talk. I told him ti take a swing with it. Cold out of his cart in his boots and no warmups. He hit a drive 20 yards past where he normally is on that hole. He just looked at me and said “Holy MF’er, what the hell is this thing?” He couldn’t believe it and followed me to the next hole. Same thing. Two more just as long. We’ll see if he places an order tomorrow. Ha Bridgestone Tour B JGR Driver and HF

  17. Okay, it's time for a bit of an update on these irons. There were two particularly important questions people had with these irons. 1) How well would the black finish last 2) Could we really believe Hogan that the long-irons are easy to hit high? So, let's give you a quick mid-term. Here's my pitching wedge, it's hit probably a little over 400 shots by this point. This is it immediately after tonight's practice session. And here's that same club after a quick spit and wipe down. It still looks almost like new so far Impressive to me, so far and

  22. Don't feel bad! I reached 101 last Sunday; only time since I started. I just finished my last session of Week 2 today. Not a whole lot of improvement, but going back to day 1, the trend is a slight gain across the board. About what I would expect. That's why it's a 72 week program!!! Here are my maximums at the end of Week 2. Light Medium Heavy

  23. oh I feel your pain! 3 times this year I thought I was going to break through the seemingly impenetrable wall of 80 only to hit it square on the head. The killer is when you find yourself looking back at the dozen or so missed opportunities throughout the round. Breaking 80 is one of my 2018 golf goals.. have less than 3 months to catch that unicorn!

  24. I've welcomed a lot of people and I felt like I was doing it just to get more posts and hit higher numbers. I felt like I was not being original or really welcoming. Also I noticed that no matter how many I welcomed and said stick around to not many did so I gave up. I didn't want to just keep saying welcome for numbers and then nothing after that and their test entry. Now the ones I welcomed and stayed around made me want to keep doing so but that was less than 10%. I also noticed that there were a lot of copy and paste welcomes when I tried to type something different as much as I could. So

  26. I sort of agree with you and have gone through phases where I welcome the new comers or get a bit irritated when the mobile feed gets filled up with responses to the intros. For me, the responses to my intro had no bearing on whether I stuck around or not. It was the content in other areas the made me want to stay and learn. For giggles, I found my intro thread and re-read the 12 responses - there was nothing earth-shattering that made me stick around. I believe it is important to actually read the intros and respond to something that interests you, but not necessarily the copy/paste repl

  28. I understand this mindset and dislike it at the exact same time. It makes sense to not want to waste brain power or the time being introduced to someone who you may never see again or who is just trying to “win” something. However, for a new person, showing them the welcoming community and culture that has been established at MGS is important. It’s why I stuck around and am trying to provide value. I was welcomed with open arms and no judgement and want to show that to others as well. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  31. Just wanted to give you guys some info on how the training is going. I did a session Tuesday night and I'm seeing an improvement, especially left handed. There's still a bit of a gap between hands, but the left side is getting closer in some drills to my starting SS of 89mph. I'm a little flustered that I'm having difficulties reaching 100, especially with my lightest club on the first swings. I have to remind myself that I'm doing these after working all day and most of the gas is out of the tank. I'm hoping to get in another session Thursday if the rain holds off and play Saturday. I pro

  44. a hole out from a decent distance. (never had an ACE but I'm sure that tops anything) a holed put from a distance of 10' or more or a wild break landing on the green from a distance (100 yds or more) a blistered drive playing golf PERIOD!

  45. In my prior life, I was a Hotel General Manager at a relatively small hotel 170 rooms. So I was involved in hiring and orientation for almost all employees. I would typically walk the new employee around and introduce them to all the department heads and managers. One day after doing so, one of m managers came to me and said, "Don't bother introducing me to a new employee until after their first week, I hate learning someone's name only to hear they quit two days later" LOL She was only half joking

  46. first rule of being in heavy rough is take your medicine and get it back on the fairway. Depending on the lie will dictate whether you move it 20 yds or 150 yds. More loft, slightly open face and play right of centre in your stance will ensure the ball comes out clean. Don't take on the hero shot as that will result in doubles and triples or worse. A famous pro (Gary Player I think it was) said "dont follow a bad shot with another bad shot" Get it back to the short stuff, then onto the green or beside it for a bogie then move on. p.s my last course the rough was eas
