    Okay... so I might hold the record for lowest post frequency... I joined way back on March 1st of 2010 and this is my 50th post. Gswag actually got me back here and I'm planning to contribute more frequently. I'm a lefty and reformed club-ho with 2 hole in ones and my lowest HDCP was a 4. I've been away from the game for about 2 years because I was focused on my position as president of my local classic car club. I'm actually stepping out of that position at the end of the year so I can focus on playing more golf again. Other than that, I'm a huge Georgia Southern fan and I'd rather have a second helping of meat over dessert. I attached a couple of pics of my 1951 Chevy to help justify my absence from the game. Have a good one!!

    Normally I don't pay attention to the number of posts I have - but was looking at my tags and wondering if I should add one. Then it jumped out at me I'm over the 5,000 post mark - holy cow that's a lot of posts! Better yet, that's a lot of great conversations I've had with an awesome golf community. Thanks guys - there is no better golf forum than MGS.

    One day, a major OEM is going to run this ad: "Our clubs stayed in Rob's bag for 3 months. Enough said."

    Hi all! Firstly, I hope you are all well and if able, still hittin em straight! Secondly, I feel I owe you and apology and an explanation! Since the end of the Cobra Connect Challenge ll, I have fallen off the face of the planet. That certainly wasn’t my intention! I have had some big life changes which has led to me applying my time to that instead of golf (sigh) and the forum. Even my social media in general has subsided big time. I am moving back to Australia with my family and that obviously has it’s trials, tribulations, challenges, tears and fears. Trying to sell our home, which we had an accepted offer and the buyer pulled out after reading our strata minutes and determining they were incompetent and they didn’t want to deal with them – fair enough…. They were right! SO, that was frustrating and disappointing. It’s been 7 years since I have been home so to be so close…. Heart breaking! I also had to give notice to the company I work for. As it’s a small business and we have brought on about $10m of work for the next year and a bit, the boss needed to move on getting another guy in to manage that work. I am friends with everyone here so I did the right thing by them and made the call. I was confident the home would sell swiftly… so, it didn’t and that left me in a spot of “hey…. I don’t actually have a job after Dec 14th…..” YIKES!! Then… I am trying to communicate with my new employer in Australia on a start date…. Ugh… its been a time!!!! Anyways, things are cooling off here for a bit so I am hoping to pick up where I left off and get back involved. I am actually getting out for a farewell round with the boss on Thursday. Its gonna be cold here – probably about 32F at tee off and should warm up into the low-mid 40’s. It will be sunny though and I will be swinging the sticks at a very nice course, so you won’t hear me complaining! I am looking forward to getting balls deep in the forum again!! Thanks fellas!

    A father told each of his 3 sons as he sent them off to college, "I feel it's my duty to provide you with the best possible education, and you do not owe me anything for that. However, I want you to appreciate it. As a token, please each put $1,000 into my coffin when I die. And so it happened. His sons became a doctor, a lawyer and a financial planner, each very successful financially. When their father's time had come, and they saw their father in the coffin, they remembered his wish. First, the doctor put 10 newly printed crisp $100 bills onto the chest of the deceased. Then, the financial planner also put $1,000 there in 20 newly printed crisp $50 bills. Finally, it was the heartbroken lawyer's turn. He reached into his pocket, took out his checkbook, wrote a check for $3,000, put it into his father's coffin, and took the $2,000 cash. The lawyer is now running for Congress in your district.

    I’d be remiss if I didn’t pop in and post something about today’s round. Played with one of my college buddies who hadn’t been here since last spring. So I’m down 15 lbs and have 9 weeks of SuperSpeed under my belt. He was knocking it well past me last spring, today, not so much, In fact we were neck and neck with he being about 5 yards longer when we both nutted it. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    The local bar was so sure that its bartender was the strongest man around that they offered a standing $1000 bet. The bartender would squeeze a lemon until all the juice ran into a glass, and hand the lemon to a patron. Anyone who could squeeze one more drop of juice out would win the money. Many people had tried.... over time: weightlifters, Dockers, etc., but nobody could do it. One day, this scrawny little fellow came into the bar, wearing thick glasses and a polyester suit, and said in a small voice, "I'd like to try the bet." After the laughter had died down, the bartender said, "OK"; grabbed the lemon; and squeezed away. Then he handed the wrinkled remains of the rind to the little fellow. But the crowd's laughter turned to total silence.... as the man clenched his little fist around the lemon.... and six drops fell into the glass. As the crowd cheered, the bartender paid the $1000, and asked the little man: "What do you do for a living? Are you a lumberjack, a weight-lifter, or what?" The little fellow quietly replied: "I work for the IRS"

    ... I stripped my black SM7 58* and loved the end result. After playing it with my chrome 52* SM6 I decided to get a matching black 52* SM6 and strip it too. I am heading to perpetually sunny Phoenix and not only do I prefer the raw look, it is much better in the bright sunshine. (Just writing down "bright sunshine" with cloudy skies and snow on the ground makes me bust into a smile). For those interested in the process, I do not use any chemicals in my life unless absolutely unavoidable, so I just submerged it in white vinegar over night and then went over it with a nylon pad. I found it interesting that some paint fill came out and some didn't.

    A few days ago coming home from the gym my cart somehow took a turn into local golf shop parking lot. It was spur of the moment but not much activity so the fitters were happy to have me and my left handed old arse. Hit quite a few irons on their Computer setup Cleveland, Mizuno, Ping, Callaway, TM but one finding stood out, I should not be hitting Senior shafts, Regular was a better fit. Going further the Mizuno Hot Metal with Nippon regular shots were the best fit. Second best fit was TM Rogue Pro X which didn’t make sense to me but the numbers were there. Have a few serious choices coming up. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    I don't know man... this might be like the perfect chick. Obviously she enjoys golf enough to join a golf specific forum... then she saw your photo and couldn't resist. Heck, with that purple shirt, I might take a shot at you myself, as would several other members around here. Too bad you're all the way across the country. So um, yeah... I say go for it!!

    We had a really fun day today. I shot an 80. One of the guy's in the group, who has been struggling of late, shot the best round of his life; an 86. Another, with a 22 handicap, shot a 78 with a hole-in-one on the No. 13 par 3. It was a blast to witness - haven't seen one in at least 30 years! He just kept hitting them straight and his chipping and putting was fantastic. The other in the group shot a 90 which was one of his better rounds as well. It's really fun when everyone in the group is clicking and playing well... and exceptionally well in one case.

    These are compared to my iE1s. The Pings are a progressive set, so the longer the iron the greater the difference in club head size. Lighting was tough at the range and my photog skills aren't great, so these aren't the greatest representations, but hopefully helpful.

    Shot a solid 77 today - not bad for a guy who can only play every other week. I’m very happy. You know you’re striking it well when you have putter in hand after a miss hit. That happened several times. I also navigated around the broken 9 iron beautifully. Laid up much closer to the green on 3/4 par 5’s to eliminate any chance of 9 iron and then hit a couple of hooded wedges and another gripped down 8 iron to cover the gap.

    ... Well if you cannot watch live, drink plenty of fluids, take two aspirin and don't call me in the morning.
