  1. I have GOT to play better!! I didn't think it would happen for awhile, but my wife and I tied today at 85. Her last 3 rounds have been 84, 87, and 85; the 87 was in the Wed Ladies league. She hasn't beat me since just before my total knee replacement in 2014; I was in pain. A triple and a double along with 2 3-putts (which I rarely do) on the front nine did me in. FOCUS!! We had a hawk's nest in the trees by the driving range all spring. Now we have two new young hawks on the course. Lots of food available; squirrels running all over. My wife feeds them peanuts, salted of co

  2. Did anyone here order a bag full of marshmallows? Immediate thought: forged wool sweater... yeah, I’m sticking with that. Goodness gracious. And that was with range balls. Very eager to burn off some 5-layer urethane ammo.

  6. So, first round in, the sound of these blades are fantastic. They are the dullest amazing sounding irons ever! They were going close to 10 yards further then my ap2s. Nice high straight to 1 yard fades all day! Hit a6 iron from 174 into the wind, hit 3 yards past the pin and stopped on a dime. (Made the putt!) I had a tough time with the 4 iron. Hit out on the toe, the groove less part, and the feel wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but lost a lot of distance. Need to dial strike in on 4 and 5 irons. With my ap2s my max on a pitching wedge prefectly struck was 140, and would usually pul

  8. In 25 years of competition golf today was a first, my opponent didn’t show. I thought the rule was he lost every hole he was not there for but apparently it has now changed to has to show by the second tee. Was an easy match with a par on 1 and a 4 iron off the second tee for the win. Get to play in the finals next Saturday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. Playing golf today, 2 boys had a table set up on #4 tee box behind their house. They were selling candy, soda, and golf balls. They had the balls sorted by type for the better golf balls, selling them for a buck each. I reached in my used ball pocket of my bag and handed them 8-10 Snell balls and gave them to them to sell. They thanked me then asked about Snell. I told them a bit about Dean Snell then told them to google Snell golf. I don't think they really cared about it other than it was 8-10 more balls they had the chance to sell. The balls were headed for my shag bag/box o

  15. 35/40:75 today. 7 fairways, 10 greens, 29 putts. Played pretty well with a few bad shots; 4 birdies really helped the score. After my practice session last week using the GW for short game shots, I put that into play today and did really well. Definitely going to be something that I continue to do.

  16. 79 (40/39) from the tips, 6990 (73.4/123). 64% of fairways, only 39% of greens. I missed four of them long due to not knowing distances with the new Honma irons. Burned the lip on three birdies, but putting didn’t feel right all day. I keep pulling everything, so I can’t wait for the EXPUTT to help me figure out what’s going on!

  17. When I was working, I had a lawn service at my old house from 2005 to 2014. It started out at $15/week. When I retired, the cost was $40/week. I decided I had time to mow and save money. I have no idea what it would cost today, but I'm sure that it's more that $50/week, and if I were in business to cut lawns, I would charge $80/week to cut mine!!.

  18. 89 41/48 6 pars / 0 birdies 5 FIRs(5 penalties) 5 GIRs 34 putts / 11 chips I played at a local country club, Saugahatchee, that my buddy is a member of in Auburn, AL. This is where the State Am will be held in a couple weeks. Very windy day which led to not keeping my drives in the fairway. It felt like every shot was into the wind. Fell apart on the back with two triples and a double. Oh well, look forward to the next round.

  19. I have my hypothetical round planned out. (Really happening on Wednesday) The forecast is 91°, light and variable winds, but the wind always seems to be a factor at the course. If everything goes as planned I’ll shoot a 57. I am back at the BAD/Mo way of swinging again, changed up the backswing a little to get more depth, and distance. Only problem with this one plane swing is getting used to the short game. If I use my old methods I get a little closer to the heel than I would like, sometimes even a little too far... if you know what I mean. So for now, the short

  20. Played my home course Thursday in extreme heat, okay I live in Houston what do I expect? This is possibly the last round with a full bag of Titleist clubs as I direct my focus and devotion to #COBRACONNECT4 #MGSCOBRA2020. On to the round...Front nine pretty much sucked! But I rebounded on the back nine for a reasonable round of 86. Obviously two highlights were #10 and #17. Arccos has me 8' from the pin on 17 but a picture is worth a thousand words. 3'2" greens were extremely firm with the 100 plus heat this time of year in H-town and this 9 iron bomb left no mark bu

  23. First round today of the Governor’s Cup at my club which I said I wouldn’t play and got talked into. Had to give 5 pops in the Championship Flight and lost 4 of the 5 holes I had to give shots on. I squeaked our a one over 72 and won the match 2&1. The putter is starting to heat up at the right time now if I could just drive it better I would have a pretty good game right now. Onto round 2 tomorrow and playing straight up for a change. Should be a fun day. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  25. I shot a personal best at Cherry Hill in Ft Wayne. 43/46. I’ve never broke 90 there. I was 7 over the last 4 holes, so I can attest that I had one eye on the scorecard the last 4 holes. I limped home, but still proud of my score. 3 OB’s on last three holes, too. A lot of hard work finally starting to pay off. I’ve shot an 89 the last three rounds I’ve played. I have managed to limit my mistakes even with multiple OBs per round. I F’ng love this game! Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

  26. Let's start with the bad. Played bogie golf on the front 9 for a 45. Then the good. I played the back 9 at +1 for a 37. Now the completely poopy. This happened on hole 12. Not thrilled at all. Sent from my Moto Z3 Play using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  27. Those balata balls come with a built in 20 yards less distance off the tee, guaranteed! It's what we had to play with up until about 15 years ago so we did and we enjoyed it. We were also 15 years younger then. I loved the vintage woods - I was a Tommy Armor PGA wood guy - it was just a different game - If you could hit one 250 you were a bomber - I think the average drive on tour was under 250 with that equipment quite honestly. And yet Jack Nicklaus hit one 340 with that equipment on the PGA tournament long driving hole.

  28. I am a Seahawks season ticket holder and if they have games this year, I don't feel comfortable going to a stadium packed with people given the Covid situation. They actually gave a great offer to season ticket holders. We can get a refund for this year and still be able to purchase our normal season tickets (same seats) next year. I hope all teams are offering something similar.

  29. I feel for you. Ordered mine 7/6. DHL says they got the package 7/9. DHL shows they handed the package off to USPS 7/10 for final delivery. USPS shows they got the package 7/9 in TX, then 7/10 the Package is suddenly showing it's back in IL. Praise Jesus, it was delivered today.

  30. Played RTJ Oxmoor Valley, Valley Course, this morning. The dew was very heavy and they had just cut earlier in the week so lots of grass clippings. My usual golf buddies were out of town, so I was paired up with a three some. Very nice guys who didn't speak much English but they were great at laughing off bad shots and celebrating the good ones. I need to learn more from them. I had 9 FIRs but only 5 GIRs. Short game was still an issue with multiple holes with multiple chips. I have to hit it close to score. Shot a 91. Didn't drive the ball very well either and I have learned it's really hard

  31. Just wanted to give a little update...yesterday I played in a golf outing that is quickly becoming my favorite outing each year. During the outing there are a few holes that are reachable with a good drive. Well let's just say that the Motore gave our group a few guaranteed birdies. For this outing it's a 2 putt limit The Motore has performed so well that my new SIM 3 wood will have the Ventus Blue w/Velocore in it. I can't wait to continue adding more Fujikura products in my line up!

  36. Yeah had a bad first round off the tee, and hit some shots to try out the clubs that I normally wouldn't hit. Shot 80 on my first 18, and 74 on my second 18, hit the irons even better my second round, and also played more typical shots the second time through, and hit better off the tee.

  38. I'm playing in a couples Chapman format tournament next weekend in Grants Pass, OR and had our practice round today with my golfing partner. 3 hour round as it was just the two of us and it wasn't very crowded prior to our 8:45 tee time. Anyway, shot 38/39 for a 77 today. Decent ball striking. 2 birdies, one par from a lateral drop from a hazard. No doubles! Felt good to play decent again after the struggles on the course lately. Lesson paid off. First time playing with this lady. She's a 15 handicap, keeps her ball in play, albeit not very long. Chapman format should bode well for

  39. I just wanted to share this, in our safe little part of the world it is rare for us to have a Police officer killed in the line of duty. In fact we have only lost 33 since 1890. The latest one was farewelled in Friday and his colleagues honoured his memory with a Haka. This is why I will never do a Haka on here, a real Haka means far to much to be just thrown around willy nilly...

  41. After consecutive PB rounds of 75 and 74 that I posted about here, I've followed with a 79 last weekend and an ugly 85 yesterday. Played poorly with just about every club... If there was a positive it's that, when I did make solid contact with driver, I was crushing it...hit several drives that left me with a club or two less than I would normally have for my second. I'm pretty convinced the SuperSpeed training is paying off. No 3-putts is nice too, but that just makes the overall score all the more embarassing. That said, distance is not a category on a scorecard. Bl

  47. I have 7 dozen of these and a dozen Maxfli HT balata balls. Yes, they have lost compression. On a solid stuck shot they might go "out of round" on a single shot. But they are great when I hit it with one of these. And that is not my whole collection.
