  1. Did you say Ginger and MaryAnne? yes
  2. Annual Red, White, and Blue. We have some fun with it and play some really good golf as well. It was really really hot today though.
  3. Working on some 3-2-1 ribs on the charcoal smoking right now. They look like they are going to be so good. I used some Apple, and Pecan wood for smoke. They have a coating of some sweet baby rays. I will add some more in about 15 minutes then let them finish in about 45 min to and hour. It smells so good.
  4. There are guys that seem to always play well here. Rose, Phil, Tiger. There Are young guys that should win this at some point: Rickie, Rory, JT, Xander, Bryson. Probably many others I didn’t mention. Ancer, Webb, Hatton, all playing well. Bombers don’t always do well here. It’s usually the guys who get the greens right as the weekend progresses. I think Xander May prevail this year, but really it could be anyone at this point.
  5. I’m not a huge fan of Faldo except that he was a really good player and knows the game, but he was spot on with those comments. Brooks said what he said, and Faldo said okay. It was actually really funny when you think about the comments brooks made and then the “Fascinating stuff” was hilarious.
  6. Vijay is a jerk. Was a good player at one time, but a complete jerk.
  7. I use the ones from SA fishing company. They have many to choose from and have pack deals
  8. Last night in our Wednesday night game playing hole number 6, it played about 500 yards. (About 510 on the card) the app shows it just about 500. I made a 2, Double Eagle (Albatross). It was crazy. I didn’t know it went in at first, I saw it land on the front of the green and bounce up, it looked like it landed just behind the flag and was blocked from our view so we couldn’t see it, my buddy said, I think that went in, I moved off to the left to see if could locate it behind the flag, and I didnt see it so it had to have gone in, as we got closer it was very apparent that the ball was in the cup.
  9. It was a really fun course. With so many blind shots to make you really had to trust the yardage book along with the gps app that is available. I really struck the ball extremely well, I hit 10/14 fairways and 11/18 greens, I was putting better than I ever have. I had the speed and lines pretty good after the first 4-5 holes. I had 1 birdie and 2 bogeys on the front. 4 birdies and 1 bogey on the back. You really do have to trust the yardage though since you can’t see half the shots you are making.
  10. Here’s a photo from across the sound when I played at Haig Pointe last fall
  11. They are playing at my favorite place. There’s just something about That area that is just so good. Here’s a photo from when I played there in 2018.
  12. I don’t really clean my golf ball much at all. If I see dirt on it I will clean it on a towel, but I don’t specifically have a routine to wash it.
  13. Shot 69 at Tobacco Road on Saturday. I played better than I really ever have. Putter really good, especially on the back 9.
  14. Fellas. I got to go play at Tobacco Road this past weekend June 13. I’m not sure if any of you have played there or no. We played the Disk tees. The wind was blowing really hard and we weren’t sure about tipping it out so we moved up one. I played the best golf that I have played in a very, very long time. Par 71, 71.3/143 from the disk tees. I shot 69. -2 and it was so much fun. As a 5.0 handicap player I don’t shoot par or under par pretty much ever. I shot 36 on the front +1 and then 33 On the back -3. I had 5 birdies on the day. It felt so good to play that well finally. To have this round on a golf course such as Tobacco Road is so amazing. I hesitated to say anything but it was so much fun I thought I would share with my fellow lefties here. Here are a couple pics of the course. Waste areas everywhere and multiple blind shots all over the course
  15. It didn’t always used to be this way, I’d say the last 10-12 years or so it has gotten really bad. Mostly because of the technology in the bats. I’d love to see a league start up that only allows single wall aluminum bats. Just so there is a chance for people to play real softball. What they play now is basically homerun derby with juiced up and shaved bats that a 10 year old can hit bombs with. Then talk about how good they are.
  16. I had a guy one time hit one straight back at my knees, I was able to get out of the way. When he got to first I looked at him and said “really”, you are winning 35-1 and you hit it back at me. He got pissed. A couple batters later he scored i happens to take the throw at the plate. After he scored he jumped up behind me and started yelling in my ear. Mind you, I’m 6’4” and and 250 so I’m not small and can handle myself. I did t do anything, but he had about 5 teammates of his jump in and tell him to stop. I really think the guy was on something. That was the last season I played. It was Coed and we were terrible. That’s still no excuse to play like it’s the game of your life in a game that was all but done. I do love the game and have lots of fond and fun memories playing with and against some very good players. If the opportunity comes up to play a couple games I may do it. For now I’ll stick to golf.
  17. I love playing ball. The biggest issue I have. Is when you join a “fun” league. It’s set up as “fun” league, it’s coed with many people that don’t play much or have not played at all, it’s just something fun to do. Until you get the team or players from a team or 2 who think it’s the World Series. You have guys that play 6 days a week on 4 different teams at much higher levels that only play serious ball. Then proceed to hit line drives back at the pitcher, or pick on one of the girls and try to actually hit them. Then Get pissed off when you say something to them. No thanks. That’s not softball. If the games return to fun where you joke with each other afterward I would consider playing again, but as for now I like not having bruises on my body from pitching while class A and B players pelt the ball back at me just because they feel like it. Bunch of guys that can’t make it doing anything else do the live their baseball fantasies out on a softball field with people just trying to have fun.
  18. I agree with the softball issues. It’s not softball anymore. That’s one of the main reasons I stopped playing as well.
  19. I always thought that playing softball helped my golf swing.
  20. I use hot water to start with then after starting the charcoal let the grill come up to temp then put the meat on. Yes. Getting the pork to 205° does seem to take forever. It took about 7 hours with temps between 225 and 250. I never let it go above 250 or below 225. There is a fine line with the kettle grill for having it too open or too closed. I just kept my eye on it.
  21. I do use a pan of hot water under the meat. As far as diverting the heat with foil or pan, no. I will get a couple photos and video of what it looks like next time I set it up. Here is a snapshot from a you tube video for set up. To start the “snake” I use a pan with 6-8 pcs or charcoal and let them turn white then use tongs to place them at the start of the snake.
  22. Made a platform bed for my son. Torched with clear coat. I sized for a queen mattress but shimmed it down to fit the current full size in the room. Once we get the Queen I will remove the shim boards.
  23. I grew up in Benton Harbor area so I know exactly what you mean on the course conditions.
  24. So I don’t have a smoker, and while searching for one I found some guys that use just the regular Weber kettle as a smoker. So I looked up a few things and went for it. Did a pork tenderloin the first 2 times, one I took to temp 145° and sliced it. Super delicious. Used Apple wood. The second time I took it to 205° and shredded. Amazing. Cooked between 225° and 250° and they came out amazing. I used a method called “Snake”. You set up the charcoal around the outside edge going 2 wide then add another layer on top to form a half or 3/4 circle around the charcoal grate. Then place a couple pcs of wood chunks on top of the charcoal. I can cook at 225°-250° for 6-7 hours without touching it. Next time I smoke something I will be sure to get photos. I am so happy I found this method for smoking. Now I don’t have to buy a smoker. It works so good.
