  1. I can't like this post to give you another one...
  2. I'm right between a 1 and a 2. I play on average once a week but don't have time to practice. But my playing has gotten better this season and have dropped in handicap this year.
  3. Happy birthday @Har in the Hat! Hope you have a great day and you get back on here soon!!
  4. Good luck mate! Play your game and you'll be sweet!!

    Happy thread

    With the latest revision, my handicap has dropped a full point to 14.3.
  6. I don't believe I did. I think I ordered a 200 and a 175 tee. I use the 175 for my driver, a 100 for 3 wood and I actually just bought a pack of 50 short plastic tees for my irons and hybrids. I think the 175 is the tee to use with a driver unless you tee the ball really high. The 175 will put my M5 head about level with the middle of the ball.
  7. Shot a weird 85 at Windmill yesterday. 47 front and 38 back. Hit the best drive I've ever hit on #13...almost ran out of fairway.

    Happy thread

    Congratulations mate!
  9. John shot an 84. We both had one of those days where we hit some great shots and some that we said WTF was that?
  10. Well, my game can travel. Yesterday I had the honour and pleasure of teeing it up with @GolfSpy Barbajo at Firestone Country Club. Yes, the hat came out, along with the skull shirt! We played the West course...the South was having a charity scramble and it looked like the North was getting maintenance done, but both of those courses are L O N G, so the West, using the hybrid tees ran around 6100 yards and was a good length for us. I ended up shooting an 88 with 2 penalties, so it could have been lower. The greens weren't as fast as I thought they'd be when we teed off, but started to get quicker on the back 9 with the sun out. The fairways were great and the rough was OK to thick on different holes. But, can you believe we were still fixing other peoples ball marks on the greens...c'mon people, you're at YOUR club, fix the damn ball marks. Overall, it was a fantastic day and I thank John for his friendship and hospitality. Can't remember what hole this was. Hole 16. Hit it to about 6-8' with a 6 iron. This is the second hole. Tried going over the bunker but sliced to somewhere in between the two bunkers on the right...ball lost in plain sight.
  11. Happy birthday @MGoBlue100. Have a great day!
  12. Absolutely worth it. My only gripe is the insulated cooler is nowhere as efficient as the one on my bag, but that's not a big deal.
  13. Yes, Firestone. But, Windmill sounds like they're going to have another membership deal, but nowhere near as cheap as my current one.
  14. TM was the same for me when I caved in the head of my M5 2 months after I bought it. A bit less than 2 weeks later I had a new club.
  15. Yes mate. Looks like they put the price up a bit, I think I paid $136 or so delivered.
  16. I have the CaddyTek from Costco and love it.
  17. Happy birthday @newballcoach and a very happy birthday to a good mate @revkev! Have a wonderful day gentlemen!!
  18. Well, I got the treadmill Saturday and got it into the basement by myself...heavy little bugger too. First go on it this morning. I'm really liking the weight loss setting as it automatically inclines to simulate hills and made me work up a little bit of a sweat going at 3.5 mph.
  19. I love you like a brother, but that was low! We'll get there...looks like Chanin is sharing the dream at last.
  20. How'd I play? Very well. Shot an 83 at Windmill Lakes today including a monster driver of 296 yards on the par 4 17th. Hit a 9 iron 136 yards on the second shot when I should have used a wedge. The greens have just been aerated, so that sucked a bit...hopefully it won't be the case on Thursday when I play Firestone West.
  21. I got one today at Windmill. Par 4 13th. Terrible tee shot, pulled it a whole 159 yards. Hit my Maltby KE4 HDI hybrid 194 yards to the green and 2 putted for par.
