  1. I am also cheap and third round free is a bonus. You should have stopped by. It was a great trip.
  2. More likely the third round of the day. Wow +2 Handicap. Even with my 2 handicap, if you show up I get strokes. As far as 3 rounds a day goes, that is standard for me on a golf trip. I live in China these days most of the time and don't play that often. That means the 3 or 4 times a year I take a golf trip I binge and play as much as possible. Plus, Bandon is my favorite golf resort on Earth. If you get there you have to play nonstop.
  3. I'll Be at Bandon June 12-14. It's nearly impossible to change morning and afternoon tee times, but, If somebody wants to join a friend and I and go out in the evening and play till dark, hit me up. No slow play allowed though. It's all about getting in a third or even fourth round every day.
  4. I'm in and out. I'll be home the entire summer. Theo, want to meet me somewhere and play.

  8. Hello All, I know it has been a while and I haven't been active on the board lately because I just took a new position teaching choir in english at an international school in Tianjin China. I quickly found a spot in my neighborhood that has golf on simulators. I made friends with the owner, a Korean expat who speaks excellent english and he took me to his country club for real golf yesterday. I thought I'd give a little review of my experience. Positives: Everything is first class. The golf course is in Tianjin's new international business district and the course is like a resort to enterta
  9. Hi Everyone, I know I haven't been very active lately because life has been crazy hectic. I have recently accepted a new position as the middle and high school choir director at Tianjin International School in Tianjin China. The whole family will move there at the end of July. Tianjin is a huge city and has many golf courses. However, I have been told by other expats that golf is very expensive in China. I have also read and done some research that seems to suggest that $100 or more per round is common for foreigners. However have also heard that there are reduced rates for locals and even s
  10. I really like the brown. It might be the best looking modern wingtip this year.
  11. Rev, this is a great thread. I think that the bottom line is a person needs to do what works best for them. Pro's talk about working the ball a lot and so do commentators but I do not think most pros work the ball that much. All the pros have a stock shot ball flight that they play most of the time. The only pros that seem to constantly work the ball are the true ball striking virtuosos. You hear Johnny Miller talk about that on TV all the time. I also have read that Hogan did this. If the pin was front they hit it high if it was back they knock it down and skip it back. If the pin is right th
  12. I am a professional musician and like to do anything musical. I also enjoy cooking. I used to ride freestyle bmx bikes too but I got too old and tired of hurting myself all the time.
  13. Greetings from Temple TX!
  14. Did you taste anything besides hot fire sauce. Of you eat that much siracha you also have to ask how it felt coming out.
