  1. I wear the Shot Scope X5 but use an MG Golf Laser for most approach shots to the green. BTW, been playing for 64+ years.
  2. We have 12 players for tomorrow’s game. S/b 42* to 60* for our game…..brrrr!
  3. A real roller coaster ride today. Shot 47/43:90. Horrible front nine, then back to back birdies on Par 4 #14 & Par 5 #15.
  4. I didn’t see any, but you can surely try. Best to be there in person.
  5. My local Dicks did not have the 48 ball pack of Maxfli Tour X……but they did sell me four dozen Tour X’s for the $99 sale price.

  7. Oh wow, Kentucky 38 Louisville 31….. We played the game with zero penalties plus a 100 yard kickoff return. So proud of my Cats!
  8. Hopefully, it’s just a rumor….
  9. Kentucky v Louisville, 4th quarter, 2:32 left in the game, and we currently have a tie game at 31 to 31. I had no idea that the Cats could stand up to the Cards this year….Go Cats!
  10. In 1959, the City of Frankfort, Kentucky opened a new park called Juniper Hills, located just west of the city. Juniper Hills included a Par 72, 18 Hole rolling terrain golf course and an Olympic size swimming pool. My Grandfather and his buddies joined the club and began playing every week. I was only 8 yrs old, but my Grandfather decided I was old enough to be his caddy. So I began my golfing career pulling a Bagboy pull-cart filled with Powerbilt golf clubs up and down the rolling terrain of Juniper Hills. As a caddy, I learned the rules of golf and how the game was played. My first set of clubs were a hodgepodge set of old hickory shafted clubs, leftovers from my Grandfather’s old clubs. Ones that he took to Africa when he was building a sawmill to harvest mahogany wood for office furniture in 1948-49. He was a Civil Engineer. They carved out some land in the jungles of the Gold Coast(now Ghana) for a 9 hole course and played it for their recreation. Sadly, today I only have the putter left, so it hangs on the wall above my desk at home. I progressed from the hickory sticks to used Powerbilts that were my Grandfather’s. At age 10, I got my first set of cleats(steel spikes of course). I felt like I was king of the world when I walked around the clubhouse area going clickety-clack, clickety-clack. I spent my summers at Juniper Hills, just a mile from my home, caddying in the mornings then either hawking lost balls, putting for pennies or playing in the hot Summer afternoons. I witnessed a Hole in one at age 13 when one of my friends aced the 140 yard Par 3 #6. For my High School Graduation, my Grandfather gave me a new set of Powerbilt irons. I got my Ace in August, 1985 at Pine Ridge Country Club in Winnfield, LA. When I moved to Florida in 1987, I was a 10 Handicap, gaming Nicklaus Muirfield irons. Unfortunately, I was either working, or playing with my 4yr old daughter so I did not get much time to retain my handicap and watched it slip to an 18. Fast forward through the years to now, I have been playing with a 6” steel plate, 13 screws & an inch of my left hip bone in my left wrist (ice skating accident in 1998). The inch of my left hip was to make both arms the same length again. Because of the injury, my handicap ballooned to the mid 20’s for several years, so I moved to graphite irons to reduce as much vibration as possible. I was able to get my handicap back down to 13 for a few months in 2011, but that did not last. For the past dozen years, I have been bouncing between 17 and 22. I also have two Ligaments damaged in my Left Ankle(too many ankle sprains). The Dr’s offered surgery but I declined because I was not ready to stay off of it for 4 months. I wear an ankle brace occasionally but try to play without it. I am an Accountant(Ky State Univ. 1977) that retired in Jan 2017 and now play weekdays(Mon/Wed/Fri) with a group of old farts, aged 65-84 at Heritage Isles in Tampa, FL.
  11. Just finished a limited series on Apple+ ….Lessons in Chemistry. Very good drama set in the 1950’s
  12. Date 11/24/2023 Course Name Heritage Isles Gross Score 85 Course Handicap 10 Gross Strokes over/under par 13 Net Score to Par 3 Net Score 75 Net Birdies or better 6 Longest Drive 194 SIM Round Weather 53*-61* cloudy, drizzle most of the morning. Not bad score all things considered…
  13. Not what I bought, but what I am looking for……My left handed 23 yr old Granddaughter wants to learn how to golf. Her BF’s family all play and she just watches. Wanted Ladies Left Hand set of clubs.
  14. Date 11/22/2023 Course Name Heritage Isles Gross Score 83 Course Handicap 10 Gross Strokes over/under par 11 Net Score to Par 1 Net Score 73 Net Birdies or better 6 Longest Drive 207 SIM Round Finally, my game crawled out of the gutter. Two months shooting high 80’s and low 90’s was not fun. New driver performing admirably (180-215).
  15. Yesterday I had two birdies and 3 Triples shooting a 45/42:87. My game is coming back around. Only 34 putts.
