  1. Shogun. Although, I'm ready for it to end because I'm tired of the subtitles. I read the book years ago which is excellent. And there was a made for TV series in the early 80s that was good.

    Warrior. On Netflix so far it's been good.

    Sugar. I watched the first episode and it may be the next to the last one I watch.

  2. I have another: Guys that can’t hit as far as they think they can and wait for the green to clear. We got stuck behind a twosome yesterday and although they hit the ball far, they would wait until the green cleared, more than once, before teeing off when the distance was 380-425 yards. They were hitting farther than I can, but nowhere near the green, so why wait? All it does is slow everyone else down.

     I attend an annual meet at the Tail of the Dragon every July. This year is our 20th year anniversary meet.


    I've had a few MINIs and I didn't live far from The Dragon. I've been there quite a few times. Only made Killboy once though.




  4. I like walking the course. it's a great way to play, and get some exercise at the same time. In the winter it's a great way to stay warm.

    I retired and started playing golf a bit and I walked for a year and a half with a push cart. Then I bought an electric cart and it's been great. I play with a group of 4-6 people and some never walk and some, ride or walk. When it gets hot we walk the front and ride the back.

    Like others said get good comfortable shoes. I carry lots of water in the summer, 3L, and I usually drink it all on a summer day.

    I walk two courses and both are 5-6 miles for 18.

    If the course is cart path only you might as well walk

    Reading these posts about the putter tag makes me nervous. I have the SuperStroke 2.0 with the screw adapter for a counter weight. Might have to try the gorilla glue option for that sensor. 

    The tape that comes with the Shot Scope putter sensor works well. I have a sensor that's still attached to a SuperStroke grip. I use the glue gun on a sensor I move from putter to putter.

  6. I caught up with a couple on hole 15 that was slow for a lot of reasons. I didn't expect to let me through that late, but they could have played faster.

    Due to wet conditions the course was cart path only. Twice one player walked over to the ball with a club and then went back to the cart for a different club and the ball was in the middle of the fairway and not next to the cart path. Just take two clubs.

    The worst was when they cleared 18 and went back to the cart and both decided to replace the head covers while parked next to the green instead of driving away and replacing the head covers at the cart barn.

    You had fusion on 1 and a ti insert the other?  Hmm.  My doc didn't offer me a joint replacement. I was unaware there even is such.  But you say the fuse work better than the ti insert?

    Yep, a fusion on the right and an insert on the left. My doc didn't offer me a joint replacement on the right toe because the joint had been eroded beyond anything but a fusion.


    Every once in awhile my left toe bothers me, but not often. I think the replacement joint was a huge success. But, having said that if I were to do it over I'd probably have the left toe fused also. I've had zero issues with the fusion.

  8. I had that surgery six years ago. My joint was gone and I had bone-on-bone, so I had the toe fused. I can't bend the big toe, but I don't notice that. And the pain is gone. It worked out great for me.

    I had a titanium joint inserted in my left big toe, it wasn't' as bad as the right, though it bothers me every once in a while. If I were to do that over I'd have that toe fused.

    Do you have kids? The toe thing is hereditary. My daughter has had surgery on her right foot a couple of years ago, and is currently in a boot on her left foot due to the same surgery, she blames dad of course.

    So sorry about it. Some time ago I had to euthanize my dog - he had a cancer.

    I knew it's the best thing to do, but god it was so hard.

    I still can't recover from it.

    wish you strength

    It is hard, very hard. Sorry for your loss.
