  1. So..... my boy pulled it off. Great win. I'm a big Rory fan, so it was a bitter sweat kind of deal for me.
  2. Lot's of ruffled feathers on this topic...lol. Personally, I don't give a f*** what you do or don't do on the golf course. Just play at a reasonable pace and keep it moving. Music is a non issue.... either way with me.
  3. Born in 1959. Been playing for 30+ years.I have played Mizuno irons and Titleist drivers/woods for the last 25 years. I started with Callaway S2 irons and Steelhead driver and 3 wood.
  4. I have two aces. I think for the vast majority of us it is luck. Yes, you have to aim the ball, hit the correct yardage and hit the green. But.... there are much, much better players than me that can do that consistently that don't have an ace. So..... a lot of luck is involved.
  5. My 58* is for skulling the ball across the green. Other than that, it's useless.
  6. I happened across this video this morning. I thought it was worth posting up. different from anything I've seen.
  7. This is an interesting topic for me. I will be 65 at the end of September. I have lost a lot of distance with my irons and a little with my driver. I think most of that is because I changed my swing so as not to injure my back. I decided that I was going back to my "normal" swing this year. I have not gained back all of the distance.... but a good bit of it. So far, I have not injured myself. I think I changed my swing out of fear because I had very bad "incident" on the golf course after stepping on a shot. This year is the year Stella get's his groove back. I shot 75 on Saturday.
  8. I want new irons. I've been playing my MP 64's for 12 years. I love them. I don't need new irons.... I just want them. MP 243's are calling my name. I doubt I will do it at this time, but I can always wish.
  9. I played Saturday. My brother and I had no one behind us and a twosome in front that moved along just fine. I still grabbed a couple of clubs and walked to my ball while he drove to his. After I hit my shot, I walked to the green and waited until he got there to put my clubs away and grab the putter. This s*** aint rocket science. We finished the round in 3 hrs. 15 minutes. Now, this was a special day where we had decent players in front of us and no one behind us on the front and back. I wish it could always be like that, but................. I guess the point is, we still played ready golf and did nothing different with no one behind us. edit: I want to add.... when you can actually play golf without having to wait on the group ahead of you, things go much faster. I think the biggest reason for slow play is slow people (inexperienced players) in front of you. Add two more inexperienced groups ahead of them and there is no way you are getting done in under 4 hrs.
  10. So... as luck would have it...or not, I ended up in a divot after a very good drive to the middle of the fairway. It was a deep and long divot. By brother told me to just move the ball out of it. I remembered this topic on here and decided to take my medicine and play out of it. Since it was a long divot (8-10") it was not that hard to get a club on it and make a fairly decent shot just a few feet short of the green. I have to admit, I was tempted to take my brother up on the offer. I did par the hole.
  11. There is nothing to say.... it's all been said here. My oldest daughter is 31. I can't even imagine what his parents are dealing with. Prayers for his family and friends.
  12. True, father time is undefeted. IMO, Tiger's fall has/had more to do with his personal life and the choices he made... injury and age have certainly contributed.
  13. I think you may have misunderstood me. I'm saying that Golf (the game.... the golf gods) smile on an individual for a time.... then, move on to another. The "just ask Tiger" statement was about his fall as a player.... falling out of grace with the game/gods. Scottie rocks, but he isn't immune to the cruelness of the game/gods. No one player ever stays on top... just ask Tiger.
  14. As much as I always want to see Tiger play well, I think his injuries/life has taken a toll on his game. He's still Tiger.... and always will be. Two more years and he can play the Senior Tour... if he chooses.
