  1. I wasn’t going to say anything…. But I know for sure there won’t be any low sodium bacon around at Shanky’s place. So you gentlemen better take good care of yourselves.

  2. Had a fun round this morning for my birthday, and my parents came down to join. It was cold and wet, so didn’t keep stats just wanted to enjoy the round. Hit some good shots, nothing horrible. Really liking where my swing is at right now. I did notice with hitting ball more solid and with a better face to path, I may have to consider a ball change. I had quite a few run out more than I wanted. Also, really enjoying the Mizuno M Craft OMOI 2.

  8. Played in some pretty gusty conditions today, but when you can only get out once a month cuz you got a baby, you trait what you can get. Outside of 5 doubles for various mistakes, I did okay. Can't hit a fairway to save my life, good thing I have a new driver on the way ha! Shot 85, made some nice putts, lipped out a birdie chip, 3-putt from 7' on 18.

  9. Played yesterday at Bent Brook in Birmingham with some high school buddies. Shot 43-44 for an 87, no birdies 3 doubles… drove pretty well and struck it decent enough that I should’ve been low 80s but had some mental errors. 2 3 putts, a couple of “getting too cute” shots and a blade wedge into the water to end up doubling one of the easiest holes on the course. Played the par 3’s well and par 5’s bad which is the opposite of the setup here, par 5’s are gettable and 3’s are tough. Missed an easy par save putt after a brilliant sand shot too. On the bright side I chipped very well, had a couple of tough up and downs I put within 2 feet for easy pars. Ever since my chipping lesson late last year I love having a wedge in my hand. Way more freeing and just makes golf more fun honestly.

  12. ... Well, to steal your video Bens, ya play to win the game. Just wanna say you and Shankster put up a good fight. And not to get callouses patting myself on the back but I only used 2 players while you and Shankster used 3. I mean sure Brad Lee won it all using 4 players but where is the fun in that?

  15. Haven't played in a few weeks due to vacation and Covid; overall I hit the ball really well and we very happy with how I played. 8 FW, 10 GIR, 32 putts. Missed fairways were just off the fairway with no issues hitting the next shot. Missed greens weren't horrible with none of them being really bad; mostly due to a few fat iron shots. Short game left a bit to be desired and missed a few putts I probably should have made. Only one 3 putt and that was on a 354 yard par 4 that I hit the green with my tee shot and 3 putted for par. I'd assume I hit the cart path but there were no scuffs on the ball so I probably just caught some hardpan and got the right bounce. 41/37:78 - I was 5 over through 7 with a double and 3 bogeys; bogeyed 10 and pared everything else. Hopefully this ball striking continues; I can see my handicap dropping quickly if I can get my finesse and < 100 yard wedges sorted out.

  16. ... I picked up a new 9* Cobra LTDx and installed my Tensei Blue but it launched too low for my swing. Loved the feel/sound so I picked up a used 10.5* Limited Edition Black LTDx and the results are much better. I just don't swing fast enough to play a 9* LTDx so I put it in the Classifieds at $100 off the $499 price and it was only played 7 holes so it obviously still looks new. Not sure about the LinQ White in the LTD Edition as I have only played one round with it, but I have a '22 Tensei Blue and GD AD-MT to install if the LinQ White doesn't work out.

  18. 38/40 +6 Today Lets start with the bad. 3 doubles and the blasphemous 4 putt. Now that that’s out of the way I managed to hit 7/9 greens on the front(with the 4 putt). Converted 2 birdies. Only hit 4/9(drove the reachable par 4 in 1) on the back but felt like I hit the ball better.

  19. I haven't been around in a while but figured an update thread as I build my new bag would be a decent way to make a comeback. I haven't really updated my bag in awhile and now have the opportunity to make some changes. I'll be updating it over the next year until I have it set the way I'd like it. I have not gotten fit for any of the new clubs as right now it's not a luxury I can afford but I am a big proponent of custom fitting. I have selected heads that offer forgiveness and some adjustability where needed while also providing the aesthetics that I like to see near the ball. I have selected shafts that I feel will work the best for my swing based on the research I've done. To date I have ordered a new driver, which I have received already (see pictures) and ordered new irons and wedges. I will be finishing out the bag with a new putter, 2 more wedges, 2 hybrids, and a fairway over the next few months to a year. My new driver (pictures included): PXG 0811XF Gen4 Loft - 10.5° Length - 45" Shaft - Mitsubishi Diamana S+ 60g R Grip - PXG Z5 Black Midsize My new irons: PXG 0311T Gen3 (5 - 9) Loft - Stock on 5 - 8, 1° strong on 9 Length - +0.5" Shaft - Mitsubishi MMT 70g R Grip - GolfPride Tour Velvet Midsize My new wedges: TaylorMade MG3 (PW & GW) Loft - 45° PW (1° Strong) & 50° GW (Stock) Length - +0.5" Shaft - Mitsubishi MMT 70g R Grip - GolfPride Tour Velvet Midsize Will post pics of the new irons and wedges when they arrive.

  21. It is like Country Ham now. It is hard to find Country Ham with enough fat to make decent Red Eye Gravy. What we do is buy a chunk of fatback and use it along with ham chunks to make it. My wife says now days they want us to die healthy

  25. An 8-year-old girl went to her grandfather, who was working in the yard and asked him, "Grandpa, what is a couple sex? The grandfather was surprised that she would ask such a question, but decided that if she's old enough to know to ask the question then she's old enough to get a straight answer. Steeling himself to leave nothing out, he proceeded to tell her all about human reproduction and the joys and responsibilities that go along with it. When he finished explaining, the little girl was looking at him with her mouth hanging open, eyes wide in amazement.. Seeing the look on her face, the grandfather asked her, "Why did you ask this question, honey? The little girl replied, "Well, Grandma says to tell you that dinner will be ready in just a couple secs.

  26. Congratulations to the winner (whoever guessed the tiebreaker)? Another decent showing for me and, adjusting for handicap, I'll take this win as consolation... since I probably won't fair as well at the PNW Meet-up .

  32. It's snowing, no coverage of the PGA, and, to add insult to injury, The Golf Channel is airing Premiere League Soccer... WTH? Hmmm, maybe if I sign up for the Premiere League Soccer channel I can watch the PGA Championship. Okay, I get that TGC dosen't have the bankroll to pay for this major event coverage but how about something related to golf?

  33. I’m very not sorry about that. Look me up in about 15 years. “Shanky’s” it’s going to be a brunch/lunch place. Sandwiches galore, doughnuts, BACON… biscuits and gravy… heck, it might even have a trackman studio and the entire floor be a giant putting green… maybe even a chip n’ putt out back… I should probably TM that name right now, because it is going to be a real thing!

  34. ... Finally got in 18 holes today. Not much energy and still tired and hard to believe it has been 3 weeks since coming down with this $%^&%$* sinus infection. First surprise was I tried to play Monday and only got thru 7 holes and mentioned that to one of the guys in the clubhouse (they all know me since I play 5 times a week) and Michael only charged me for 9 holes today without me asking. Nice start to my day. Then I was playing new irons, new shafts and a new driver with a new shaft. 20-25 mph winds but with the temps near 100* not a bad thing really. ... I really liked the LTDx Black with the LinQ White shaft but struggled with the KBS TGi shafts in my new Forged Tec irons. 5-pw with a FT-X 4 iron that was silly long off the tee and from the fairway and set me up for an eagle putt just over the 2nd green. I need to weaken it 2* and match the specs for the FT 4 iron. The FT's performed well but the TGi shafts just feels very brittle and stiff, unlike any graphite irons shafts I have played. Not sure if I was making poor contact, although all my par 3 shots had the tee mark in the center of the face, or the shafts are just very different because as I said, I felt a little weak and tired all round long. I am going to give them a few more rounds and then if the feel doesn't improve, I will re-shaft with Steelfibers similar to what I have in my MIM irons. Love that combo. 3 birdies and 2 bogies so 1 under par while still feeling under the weather gives me nothing to complain about. Resting this weekend then hopefully a little more energy for Mondays round!

  39. ... I really have 2 home courses here in Phoenix. I play Aguila almost exclusively in the fall/winter/spring because most courses charge $200-350 for a round of golf. Pre Covid many of these courses on Golfnow/TeeOff could be found for around $49 but the last 2 winters no bargains to be found. Aguila charges $24 to walk with a senior city card at twilite, so I can play 5 straight weekdays for less than one round at another course. Then in the summer I join The Raven for $59 a month and afternoon rounds are $29 with a cart when the temps are 105-115*. The Raven is pretty much all pine trees so plenty of shade to park the cart by the tee or green and not burn your legs trying to sit back down after the group putts out.

  42. Been working the driver since February on the sims and since April now outdoors golf is a thing around here and 90% of the time it is going straight and long. Fairway hybrids have not been doing the magic like they used to so those have taken a vacation out of the bag. Irons have been working (mine are iron hybrids) as well this year after listening to a Pro who said to imagine cutting a tennis ball in half and standing on the halves like buttons, one under forward foot ball and back foot heel, so that as the club is drawn back in the backswing the heel compresses that tennis ball half and then in the swing switching to pressing the one on the front of the other foot. Canting the iron also has had an amazing effect on considerably fewer chunked and topped hits, most often the ball makes an amazing sound off the club face and goes far. Far enough that I am having to re-map which club to use for what distance I am intending to hit clubbing down two at this point from what I was hitting last year. Reaching greens in one under par instead of at par so big improvement, might actually become a bogey golfer this year!

So I threw him the heat… little punk hit a line drive right at my forehead… but alas, I have cat like reflexes, so I put up my non gloved hand because that is the smart thing to do… probably the worst mistake I’ve made since turning 39 on the 12th.

  45. I wore a pair of baby blue shorts and a pink shirt to go play golf in last week. As I'm walking out the door my wife said. "Where are you going to a baby reveal party at the course" Not to be outdone I quickly replied. "You better hope it's a girl because I have to take the wrong color off"
