    Scrambles always seem to bring out some “not so honest” people...I used to play in a really big charity event that manages to get lots of great prizes donated to give away. After a few years where teams of guys that never seemed to break 90 when playing their own ball would turn in 21 or 22 under gross scores they made a big change......everyone plays and turns in their scores and they post all teams in order that they finish in....1st, 2nd, 3rd and so on...then they draw numbers to award prizes.....”here we have a dozen Pro V1’s per player......let’s draw a number.....ok the winners are the team that finished in 15th place.......next up is a new Callaway stand bag for each player......winners are the team that finished 5th.....and so on. The first year they did it there were some pissed off people who never came back, more than likely the cheaters, but everybody seems to like it and the tournament has grown to morning and afternoon flights because of it. The only problem I see with that is there are a lot of people that don’t play those type of events very often. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

    Daisy also volunteered to look at a video of my swing. I truly appreciate that. Instead I’ve scheduled a lesson. My teacher knows my swing. I had a poor range session today but I played well last Friday and know my issue a matter of sequencing. On a great note my speed was back up in today’s workout. Was over 100 with all my green swings, 110 several times, fastest kneeling ever and over 100 several times lefty. I’m just faster in the afternoon than the morning. My better scores come in the afternoon. My faster swings come in the afternoon. I’m an afternoon evening golfer. I prefer to write in the morning. :) Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    The Golf Handicap System does not measure your quality as a person. If an individual cheats at something as meaningless and trivial as Golf I cannot begin to imagine their behavior when life’s more serious dilemmas come knocking. If someone is sandbagging and all it costs me is bragging rights then so be it. I’ve yet to get out of the shower to find my “you know what” has grown because of a good round of Golf. However, If money or merchandise is on the line then it’s time for a big boy or big girl conversation. I am a fan of the current handicap system. As a low single digit handicapper I enjoy the competition with others of all handicaps. Never have I thought to myself, “well you know technically I did beat you”. If I am playing a 22 handicap I know I have to beat ‘em by 21 strokes to win and I’m on it like two hobos on a hotdog. It’s a tremendous challenge and a way to share the experience with a wider variety of people. Many years ago my mother told me to clean up underneath my own porch before I go sweeper under the porch of others. I concentrate on being the best version of me (which isn’t easy) rather than trying to save the souls of wayward. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I agree it is probably more likely for a player of tiger’s skill. However I watched my uncle get one with a 5 wood that never got more than 3 feet off the ground on a 155yd hole. I was happy for him and disgusted at the same time, so who knows. I will get one someday! I just know it. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I've just gained a new level of respect for my northern friends. Got my second session of week nine in tonight after work and was greeted to a temperature of 32 degrees. After layering up real good with thermals, a fleece jacket, and a beanie (toboggan to us southerners), I was good to go. I will say that a leather golf glove doesn't work out to well. I even chose to only record my fastest speed ala Kenny. I usually record everything, but I decided to smart thing to do was save time and get back inside to a heater. I had some good swings tonight hitting a high of 106 dominant and 103 non dominant. I say it was a good night and a great way to end the day. I got an email from Kyle today asking for me to send a video of my swing so they can offer some advice. I'm hoping the rain that's forecasted for the weekend doesn't hit so I can head out to the range and take care of this. @Kegger, the kneeling swings will get easier. After my first session my lower back was quite stiff, but as I've gotten used to it, it's not as bad. I'm glad to hear the air quality out in California has improved and an saddened by all the lives that have been affected by the fires. I'm glad to hear you're safe.

    Figured you guys would love this - life at a private club. My 9 iron shaft broke at the handle on the range today - really? So the fitter recommended that 6 and 7 have a wider platform - SCOR 44 and Wilson C300 9 iron are now in the bag for Friday’s round, G30 8-6. We shall see. This is what he wants. I honestly launch the G 30 short irons higher than I’d like. I wonder how these two will perform. They have until New Years. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    He's too busy playing Xbox I am sure. He never did like golf, even though I tried to get him interested in it.

    I didn't play well on Sunday; poor chipping and putting. Yesterday I walked with guys at the club and played better; +2 on the front, then quit after #11 when it started raining. Rained most of the night, but quit about sunup. The course was wet, so today I decided to spend a couple of hours practicing. After a short warmup on the range and hitting a few drivers, I went to the pitching area. That was the worst part of my game this weekend. My tendency is to pull my shots left. I know they are range balls, but I'm not working on how the ball reacts on the green. I'm working on how straight to the target I can hit the ball. I hit a bucket of balls from 40 yards; OK but not great, so I picked them up and did it again. I focused on making more of a turn on my backswing; better... here's the result. Still have a way to go, but at least they aren't all to the left!! FYI, I was aiming for the back pin.

    Well the other week was my best round. Rewind to 1-2 years and I was struggling to get into the low 90's. The last year has mostly been in the 80's. Personal best was an 84 (different course). Fast forward to a couple weeks ago and I broke 80 for the first time with a round of 76. 27 Putts, 39% GIR (Probably why I had sub 30 putts), and 21 FIR% (Nothing wildly off the fairway). Most pars and birdies I've had in a round. 9 pars and 3 birdies. Only one double and one 3 putt. It was just one of those days where nothing was horrible and putting everything together.

    How about Tangambalanga, Yackandandah,Wangaratta and Wodonga. They all sound normal to me as I grew up in one of them, and the others were all nearby.

    My ball markers are photo ball markers with pictures of my son on them. I also personalize a lot of my golf balls with his name and date of birth and death on it. There usually isn't a round of golf where he isn't on my mind.

    Scramble tournaments bring out the absolute worst in people. There is a charity event I play every year that sends two shotguns out on a Monday in June. The less intense golfers play in the PM and we see our scramble scores are often 4-5 strokes lower. First place in the AM group is often -15. The powers that be got it right in this event. First prize wins a $20 bottle of wine from the Finger Lakes. Nothing worth cheating over, an honest prize where the funds raised go where they’re supposed to go, the charity. I’ve been witness to fights in the parking lot and grill room following claims of cheating. It’s golf, life is too short. I will never understand. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
