  1. On our 11th hole, a tight 495 us par 5,I sniped a tee shot quick left on the highway. Reload and pummel it to 204. Yip a 2 iron in the trees left, and have 78 yards under then over a tree, and a deep bunker. Stoned a 58* to 3 feet and made 6. I hate this game sometimes Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. Ummm. I’m Nic and I’m a terrible putter. Oregon/United States 3.3 I have used several different putting training devices. Mirror, Pelz clips, putting arc..... still a s***** putter. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. For me, it’s gotta be some type of anser or anser copy. ITB this week is a Toulon Austin with Stroke Lab. So far, so good. No 4 putts. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. I’m not great at math, but isn’t that just a single photo? 1*1000 still = 1000 I think... [emoji12] Beautiful putters though. Wish I had the temperament and stroke to play something that looks like that. I had a Wilson Julius Boros putter with this shape when I started playing in the stone ages. Missed everything.

  6. We also have every time listed on our online booking portal. Some people are just analog in a digital age.
  7. Hi, I'm looking for a time around 11:00 How about 11:07? Got anything closer to 11:00? I've got a 10:52... Dang. I guess I'll try another day. Not making this s*** up.
  8. I'd like the earliest time you have for Saturday.. How about 6:00 am? That is waaaay to early. What have you got around 10:00?
  9. Please have a vague idea of what time you might like to tee off. It really helps the person trying to make the time on the other end out.. "What time would you like to play today sir?" As soon as you can fit me in. "How about in 10 min?" What? That's too early! How about something in an hour? "How does 10:00 am sound?" I was thinking around 11:45.... If you think that this is a rare occurrence, it happens at least once a day. EVERY DAY. For everyone that has to take tee times, I thank you.
  10. Thanks Kenny. All it takes is a misspent youth and an understanding spouse... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. Here are a couple of videos of me trying to get more one plane vs 2 plane. Its a work in progress to say the least... Any tips you got?
  12. I haven't had much of a chance to play lately. The weather has been nuts out here.. Rain, Snow, More rain.. I'm ready to move. I was able to squeeze a few in, with more planned in the coming weeks. Stay tuned! Course #9 - Meadow Lakes GC, Prineville Oregon. White Tees. - 77 Fun Course. Lots of water. Not very long, but the wind and the putting surfaces can make for a long day. My Men's club plays a 3 day Ryder Cup style event in Central Oregon every year, and this year, the snow really limited the options we had for courses. Meadow Lakes is quite fun, and should be on every play list when visiting Central Oregon. Course #10 - Crooked River Ranch, Crooked River Oregon. Mixed tees. - Half of this course was snow bound, and we had to play a mixture of the front and back twice to get 18 in. I have played here in the past, and always had a great time. If you want a chance at a career low round, play at Crooked River. The greens are very true and not too fast. The fairways are fair, and there is more than one reachable par 4 (like 3 -6 depending on how far you hit it). Fun Fun Fun. Course #11 - Pine Ridge GC - Springfield Oregon - Blue Tees - 75. This is my course. Very sporty and fun track. we can suffer from conditioning issues from time to time, but overall, the golf is always fun. When the greens heal this spring, I expect to shoot some low scores out here. Course #12 - Diamond Woods GC - Monroe Oregon. Blue Tees - 72. Hilly course. Takes a little local knowledge to get it around out there. Very scenic. Off of the beaten path, but completely worth the trip.
  13. I miss having Chris around. He is a great Pro. Wine Valley is on my list of places to attempt to play. If it makes the rotation, I will definitely let you know. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  14. I love this idea. I might have to get in slightly better playing shape. I’m generally pretty wrecked after 2 days in a row. I played 4 days straight in November, and my back still hurts... Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. You better get busy...
  16. I'd love to, but I'm afraid that with the season starting around here, and having used most of my vacation already, my travel plans for the foreseeable future are quite limited. I'll just have to slog through another wet Oregon spring and summer......
  17. So, its official. I'm turning old this year. My daughter graduates high school and heads off to college. We just had our 25th wedding anniversary, and I turn 50 in 10 months. I figured that in order to remind myself that life is for living, I would try to make this year about playing 50 different courses before I turn 50 years old. For those of you who do not know me, I live in Oregon, work in the golf industry, and I haven't played 50 rounds in a year for over 20 years. I will try my best to chronicle my journey to 50 in this space. I love the community here at MGS. I have been a loyal reader and contributor since day one. My post count is down the past 2 years. I attribute this to much less time looking at a computer, and more time working on my game. I will list the course, city, tees I played, score and any notes/reflections about the facility. Course#1 - Tetherow GC, Bend Oregon. Sage Tees - 42: Only got to play the front 9 here. Green complexes were nutty. Very large, very fast and VERY undulating. Fair from the tee, but super difficult putting. Course #2 - Talamore, Southern Pines NC, Blue Tees - 78: Nice layout, very hilly. Course was wet from rain and recent hurricane, so there was no roll on tee shots. Greens were good. Would play again Course #3 - Pinehurst #4, Pinehurst NC, Blue Tees - 82: Conditions were wet, cold and windy. Didn't detract from the round. Awesome layout. Very difficult approach shots. Felt pretty good with 82. Course #4 - Pinehurst #2, Pinehurst NC, Blue Tees - 85: Tough putting for someone not used to the bermuda greens. I missed everything. Just a fantastic course. I would love to play again when I was fresher. Course #5 - The Cradle, Pinehurst NC, standard tees - I played 27 holes on this 9 hole par 3. It was the most fun I have had on a golf course in years! 10/10 would travel to Pinehurst to play the Cradle all day. Course #6 - Arrowood GC, Oceanside CA, Blue Tees - 76: Very hilly layout. Decent conditions. Greens were difficult to read. Some of the tee shots were undefined. Staff was inattentive. Range and practice green were acceptable. Course #7 - Eagle Falls GC, Indio CA, Eagle Tees - 76: Very well maintained.Good layout, could be very difficult if it was windy. Would play again. Course #8 - Pacific Dunes, Bandon Oregon, Green Tees - 74: My favorite course. Views are amazing. Bunkers are incredible difficult. Avoid avoid avoid. Greens are firm and subtle. I love this place.
  18. My last round was on a par 71 with 5 par 3's. Here are my full swing counts. Driver - 13 3 Wood - 2 Utility iron (2+4) - 1 Irons (5-PW) - 9 Wedges (50°, 54° 58°) - 4 I had 11 shots with wedges that were 70% or less and 34 putts. So for me, the most important clubs in the bag are... Putter Driver Wedges Irons YMMV
  19. Pac Dunes #10. Mmmmm Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  20. This. I finally found something that will kick the G400 to the back room. The 785 is too good.
  21. Jump on Destiny. The Forsaken expansion has been quite good. There is always something to do, and both the PvP and PvE elements are great. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  22. I’m 49. I play FPS Shooters on PS4. It’s cathartic. The only problem I have is that because I’m old, my reflexes are slow, and I can’t keep up with the young kids. Do it. It’s too fun. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  23. Quick report: Played 9 after work last night. Shot +1 38. 1 birdie and 2 bogies. Hit 6/8 fairways and 7/9 greens. Not going to comment on distances, because it was 45° when i got done, and the ball was going nowhere. All in all, I am pretty happy.
  24. Hugo's Range Challenge works like this... A second range challenge was created by a dear friend of mine (and serious player) Mr. Hugo Dobson. Again, you’re allowed 40 golf balls to see if you can complete this challenge. Set up: Pick a 15 yard wide target on your golf range. Make it 10 yards wide if you’re feeling cocky and 5 yards wide if you like feeling pain. Begin with the shortest club in your bag (a wedge of some sort) and aim to land the ball within your target area. Once you achieved this, move onto your next shortest club (let’s say a PW). Follow this process until you finish the game with your driver. 14 clubs means 14 stages to complete. Mark how far you can get, by how many clubs you can get through with your 40 balls. It too me 19 shots to clear 13 clubs at a 10 yard target. (I am not that good). I think that I will be keeping the G400 for now. It is never a bad idea to have a backup or 7.
