      Watching a bit delayed but 1 off the lead after 9 is not bad. The three putt hurt.

      Tigers round looked like one of mine; lots of greens hit and lots of putts. I'm going to change that this year.

    4. RoverRick

      RoverRick

      It is easier just to miss the green.

  2. Wow, what a difference a good shaft and a new putter make; just entered in my last 6 rounds and my handicap has dropped from a 6 to a 3.6.

      Congrats! I'm sure playing with a +3 partner doesn't hurt your game either!

  3. Hey, WD, I still have time to change my fantasy lineup, you wanna tell me who you're playing, so you can't gain on me?:)

      Yeah, Overton is killing me. That and I've used all my Rory and Tiger starts.

      He'll bounce back. He's shot some ridiculous scores on that course.

  4. Baby girl number 2 arrived at 7:06AM. She is 7lbs 11oz and 20.5" long. We're all doing great.

      Thanks all. We got to come home at 9:00AM and we're all exhausted, except for our 2 year old who is like the Energizer bunny.

  5. Bears and Packers tonight. We'll find out if my beloved Bears are indeed for real this year. Either way, Hooters has $1 drafts, so I win.

      I really hope the Bears can kick the Giant's ass on Sunday night. A 4-0 start would be sweet!

      All the ESPN analyst have them at 7-0 going into their bye. I hope they're right.

      Well if I wasn't used to missing that many fairways, I might call it grinding too. LOL.

  8. Sorry, WD, but all your 230 fantasy points did was get you 14 farther behind. The 244 I put up was the best fantasy week I've ever had; I jumped 350 spots to 299 in the world rankings this week.

      I was in the 90's at the end of the Spring segment. Fell way back in this segment, but made a huge move last week.

      Actually I got up as high as 80th in the world in overall and 40th in the Spring segment.

      Da Bears. My cousin was trying to get me to go up with him, but we have a Jockey Suite at Churchill Saturday and I'll probably be too hungover on Sunday.

      I don't know, thats a tough one. I think I'm going to tape the face of it and my Cobra and hit them both into the launch monitor.

      two year old does have an unfair advantage in ball combat

  15. Bought a Ping G10 for $60 today; it is long and STRAIGHT. I went from hitting a 30yd draw with my old gamer, to a 3yd draw with the G10. I think I'll keep it in the bag.

      I was looking for a G15 and found this, it is in excellent condition (doesn't even look used) and for only $60, I couldn't pass it up. The stock shaft is garbage though, I've already got it pulled and put a new one in.

    3. BK in TEXAS

      BK in TEXAS

      Great deal! What shaft ya got in it now then?

    4. JBones

      JBones

      I put a Matrix Xcon 6S in it at 44.75". You should have seen the ball flight with the stock shaft. It was a regular flex, which is way too soft for me, but I didn't care if I broke it. The ball looked beautiful until it got out about 220 and just nose dived like a dead duck; it was the weirdest spin I've ever seen off a driver.

      I doubt I'm in the lead anymore. Syard in the other group was only like 40 behind me going into this segment.

      I have no idea why I'm still turning in a lineup. There should be a "stubborn loser" prize!

       

  18. Got a Jockey Suite at Churchill tomorrow. Hopefully I win enough money for some new toys.

      The head runs $122.50. You don't get shipping cost until you make the purchase, so I can't give you an exact cost, but I would estimate it to be around $20+, so you're probably looking at $140-$150 total. It may not be that much, just guessing.

    3. JBones

      JBones

      Every once in a while they run free shipping and thats usually when I purchase.

      Hi, thanks for the reply, just noticed it, im a newbie and still trying to find my way around the site, do they deliver to me or does the head have to go to you first to then send on to me as im in the uk, once again thanks for the reply this is something i am looking to purchase, Ian

  19. I'm so awesome that sharks dedicate a week to me.

  20. Sold an old putter today for $40, never made it home with the money. I don't know where the heck I lost it. Shoot.

    1. Justin66

      Justin66

      I have a tendency to put stuff in a pocket, which then falls out of said pocket when I get into the car. It happens more often with paper-stuffs like money and receipts. Might there be a chance it's under the driver-side seat, or on the floorboard on that side?

    2. JBones

      JBones

      I searched the car with a flashlight and microscope. I even drove 30 miles to my office at 11:00PM, because thats where I went after selling the putter. I have a feeling it fell out of my pocket at Sams Club, so it's long gone.
