  2. My brother found a deal on a tee time at Pilgrim's Run (North of Grand Rapids, MI), which neither of us had played before. We went with the men's forward tees because it was our first time, and boy was it a treat. Unfortunately my phone had no service, so my typical course GPS app didn't work. There were quite a few blind shots that would have been nice to have some more confidence on aiming and distances, but it was a beautiful day on a beautiful course. As long as it doesn't get too cold, I'm not sure if a fall day of Michigan golf can be topped.

  4. Temp cooled off today, but 45º at tee time, sunny and no wind was really quite nice. It warmed up to 58º by the time we finished. My wife and I were paired with a young single with a ride-along wife. He took up golf 3 months ago; has good eye-hand coordination but his recent baseball playing days were telling. Hard swinger. Poor contact. Must have lost a dozen PV1x balls. He thought that since he was a good athlete, he should be able to pick up the game fairly easily. Sounded a lot like me 30 years ago!! I birdied #2 with a 10-footer, and made the turn at +2 (39). I had a sand

  9. Third good round in a row on Saturday... played the Dye Course at Barefoot which, although difficult, is my favorite of our 4 courses Cold start to the day, but I played really well on the front, shooting a 40. one 3 putt bogey because I ran my birdie putt too far by trying to help my team with a birdie/net eagle when we already had a par in the bank. Cooled off a bit with a 44 on the back but I'll take an 84 any day on this course when the wind is gusting the way it was. My team won the front, and I got CTP. We finished -8 in a 3 man use one low net score game. Our A player really s

  17. A man owned a small ranch near Great Falls, Montana. The Montana Labor Department got a tip that he was not paying proper wages to his help and sent an investigator out to interview him. "I need a list of your employees and how much you pay them," demanded the investigator. "Well," replied the rancher, "there's my ranch hand who's been with me for 3 years. I pay him $1200 a week plus free room and board." "The cook has been here for 18 months, and I pay her $1000 per week plus free room and board." "Then there's the half-wit. He works about 18 hours every day, with no days

  18. So I previously posted that it never happened to me. So this morning I pull into the golf club parking lot and there is a foresome loading up. I get out of my car, put my shoes on, grab my clubs and head over toward the pro shop. One guy take off in his cart flies over to the first tee and tees it up. The rest of the group are still in the parking lot. I hit two warm up balls on the range. (Which is right next to the first tee). I look over and the guy is still standing there protecting his spot. I just laughed, got in my cart and teed off on three. I finished up on 18 then played 1 and 2. Fi

  19. I’ve yet to figure out the direction thing- i always have my grid in the parking lot or 1st green. :) Other than that I absolutely love mine very easy to use and accurate. I’ve discovered that I drive the ball farthest, when I launch it between 15-17 and with practice I’ve gotten a real good sense of how to do that. I played with my regular guys yesterday and they were stunned by how high I was hitting and and how far it was going both into and down wind. In fact I was longer than a guy whom I’m neck and neck with on every drive and he several in the same zip code as my younger buddy who’s

  20. Excellent news, Stu. I've had a couple things happen at work recently that had me briefly thinking about retirement. It's not yet realistic, but for a moment, thinking about playing golf four or more days a week sure sounded good. It's still a pipe dream, though, so I'll have to live vicariously thru your retirement golf.

  21. Yep I had went back to them when John Smalls came down a couple of weeks ago and played golf with me. Got a heck of a deal on my 2021 Course Membership yesterday so I reupped. Year long $20 for 18 and a cart and $10 for 9 and a cart. Since DST has started I will play during the week in the afternoons. It is darn near impossible to get on in the mornings due to the several leagues that play there. Right now I am still not able to walk the Stu 5 in the early mornings. I think I have Therapy and the Docs out of the way. No excuse at the money rate not to get out for 9 every afternoon as long as t

  25. "The failure of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was especially frustrating for Connery, who sensed during shooting that the production was "going off the rails" announced that the director, Stephen Norrington should be "locked up for insanity", and spent considerable effort in trying to salvage the film through the editing process, ultimately deciding to retire from acting rather than go through such stress ever again." "Connery claimed that the production of the film and the film's final quality caused his decision to permanently retire from filmmaking, saying in an interview with The

  33. Shot a dastardly mid 90's today. Probably a function of too many lost balls in the leaves, cart path only and cold windy weather. On the other hand I was very pleased with my short game - 75 yards in. That short game, including my putting saved me. Can't wait to get to Florida for some decent temps.

  35. Have you tried using an alignment stick/club? Try taking your stance/set-up, with your club face to the target line you think is correct. Then without moving your feet, position the alignment stick off the shoe tips and see if it matches. Another trick/tip is to find a spot on the ground ~2 to 5 ft between you and the target, while standing facing the target, and align your feet and clubface to that (once again, verify with the alignment stick). Lots of players utilize the "point in between" method to reduce the optical illusion many have issues with trying to align from the set-up stance.

  36. I understand the argument you are making. And others have stated it before. However MGS uses real people for club test with non perfect non reoeateable swings because thats what happens on the course, real people non perfect swings. This is the process vetted through multiple companies as mentioned. Robot testing, again referring to the R&D experts in the industry should be used in ball testing. So last year MGS went to great expense and time and travelled to a company that does not sell balls and spent almost two weeks testing balls on the robot with the process ve

  37. No particular shot really stood out as my shot of the day. Put a few 140 to 150 yard approach shots to 10 to 15 feet, which is solid for me. Almost holed a few pitch shots as well.

  43. i’m bringing alignment up at my next lesson. last round i played i took a few practice swings, stepped back to visualize my shot, and the grass i brushed with the club was pointed a solid 50 yards left. a few holes later, 30 yards right. i always think i’m lined up exactly where i want the ball to go i can’t tell you how many well struck iron shots have been way off line lately. good swing, great contact, pin high...40 yards off line.

  46. This is my issue. I’ll aim down the left side of the fairway but leave the club face pointed at the right hand side of the fairway. That equals disastrous results. A few four letter words and a list ProV1. I’ve been working on PG 4 letter words, like Nooo and Woww...

  47. My brain doesn't understand it yet. Not sure what your exact alignment issue is, but mine is my clubface is aligned towards the target, but my body is aligned somewhere way right of the target. So far, when i line up the clubface and they align my body, when my brain thinks its correct, then i need to align my body more left, but keep the clubface where it is lined up. In my mind, i think there is no way i am line up correctly, but it actually is. Have been testing it with putting right now because its the same issue for me with putting. Essentially every part of my game, my body is lined

  48. no trackman, I don't have a source, so Im forced to use the trackman inside my head. Its not very reliable tho... the trouble with trying to review just one club, or should I say two, especially the 4 iron, is that without a trackman, I can only hit them when the opportunity arises, and if Im not getting pressure behind me. My exact scientific procedure is to take 2 or 4 balls and mark 2 of them. Then from a variety of places, Ill hit both clubs, and use my tracking section of my "Golfshot Plus" to see how far they went, and which club "won" that event. The one glaring problem with
