    Big moose got a reaction from Rob Person in Changing your grip style (baseball grip!?)   
    I use an overlap grip, I tried the interlocking grip and for some reason it made me hook the ball. I  use an interlocking grip when I putt because it keeps my wrist firm so I don't flip at the ball.

    Well today the round was...there. Drove the ball well, hit my full swing approach shots well, and putted very well. The problem is/was when I drive the ball well I end up on nearly all of the par 4s inside 100 yards. My full swing 58 degree lob wedge is good for 95 to 97 yards, when it finally hits the ground. Most of the time I expect to see it has ice on it from the altitude. Inside 95 yards I am pitching. Today, as my father used to so ineloquently put it, I couldn't hit a bull in the ass with a base fiddle! I have been working on re-learning the Dave Pelz finesse swing. Made good contact with the ball, but without a great deal of finesse. When I tell people I am hooking I WANT to be talking about fishing  with my friend Red for sockeye salmon up at his place on the Kenai river in Alaska. Not watching my ball take a no crap left turn as it clears the sand traps on it way to dramatically missing the 17th green.  Two of those hooks cost me 5 strokes on two of the par 5s. The non-finesse finesse swing cost me at least 3 strokes for being long on three other holes. 
    Inside of 15 yards the short chips and floppy type shots were spot on so the practice is paying off...slowly. Anyway is was a fine warm day to be out walking the course. I didn't loose any balls, and I start it all over again on Wednesday.

    We only got 2 inches and it's almost gone. Supposed to be 55 on Wednesday. Going to a simulator Wednesday to hit some balls before we leave for Arizona.

    Good morning all on this cold Sunday morning, got 2 inches of snow yesterday and this morning it is a clear and crisp 18 degrees. Needless to say no golf around here for a while, leaving for Arizona next week staying about 1and a half hours north of Phoenix. The temperatures there are only in the upper 50s to lower 60s until the middle of the month but that still beats the hell out of 18 degrees. Have a wonderful day everyone.

    Good morning all and happy Sunday! Not much again on the agenda here today, cold and windy so venturing outside is less than enjoyable. Would really like to get to a sim or heated range but have a feeling it’ll be a stretch to accomplish. Oldest is coming down with something, again, so that is not the most fun. I swear he’s been sick on and off for the better part of a month now. Hopefully it’s nothing as we have no childcare backup plan for tomorrow if he misses school, which would mean a missed day of work for me.

    Happy Sunday MGS Nation,
    Funny thing happened last night at work, Heard a voice coming from my golf bag, it ended up being my Odyssey AI#1 CH putter saying let me out it's time to putt!
    Anyway, snow melted a good bit yesterday but temps are in the high teens and with the wind chill it feels like in the single digits. 
    Stay warm and Hittem Straight!

    Good morning spies! Off to PXG this morning to try and take their 100 dollar gift card in the driver challenge. The deck is definitely stacked against me, but my Sim2 Max and I are old friends and we shall see what we can do.   I think I will bring my Lag Shot driver instead and warm up with it. That really tunes my driver swing. It will be 75 this afternoon for short game practice over at the course. Ah spring!

    Good morning MGSpies from wintery cold WNY on this holiday weekend middle day Sunday with Veteran curling on again after a 4 week hiatus for various reasons.  Dinner plans for later.
    Went to a local Veteran sendoff for our beloved local pro Brian Jacobs yesterday, an hour of socializing while we took turns hitting on a bay at the local golf dome.  Brian is heading to Ballen Isles Resort Golf Club in Palm Beach Garden, FL to be their first ever Director of Instruction overseeing teaching pros.  Great supporter of Veteran golf making lasting memories and he will be missed here greatly.  
    Hope golf is a part of your day ⛳

    Good morning spies! 25° this morning with highs around 45° this afternoon. Starting off my Sunday by going to pick up groceries and then just hanging out at home. Good day to watch the Genesis and roll some putts.
    Have a great day spies!

    Good Sunday morning my friends. 
      @jbern glad you are on the mend. Hopefully whatever made you and the little one ill, will skip the rest of the family. @Preeway good luck at the basketball game and safe travels home. @cksurfdude wish your DEFINITELY BETTER HALF  a “ Happy Birthday “ 🎂🥳🎉 from an old man in Texas. 
      Tagging the freeze line this morning in my part of Texas. Will be long pants day for any outside activity.
       Graduating to trying two meals of solids today. Everything body wise seems to be in at least a fundamentally functional status. 
        Golf, will depend on the weather and the needs/demands of you-know-who. 
        If golf is part of your Sunday, recommend that you NOT be like TW and avoid any an all “ Hosel Hitting “
