  1. I'm sorry. I hope you make it in time.
  2. I will be 62 in 8 weeks. I would agree that flexibility and playing are key to maintaining and/or improving as we age. I need to start a flexibility program, as I am losing distance with all clubs. Nothing major, but I do notice it.... and I don't like it!
  3. Golf is an equal opportunity hater.
  4. I think my days of shooting in the 70's are are mostly in the past, also. It still happens occasionally, but not nearly as often as I'd like. I still have a blast playing... I just don't worry over the score these days. I don't practice any more and I don't play as much as I used to. As long as I still love to play, it's all good.
  5. I like the Jefferson's better. I get a green apple note in it.
  6. Thank you for sharing that. Animals are great.... sometimes better than people... well, most times...lol. I miss my two boys a great deal, but I have Moose. He's an awesome dog. We will have many good years together, God willing.
  7. No push back here. I have two attractive daughters. I'm always the guy keeping the other guys in line. I don't stand for any disrespect or crude behavior toward the girls.
  8. Not really a problem, but this is a good place to put this, I guess. I just put my other "original" dog down this evening. I put my other buddy down in November. I had this one for 14.5 years. He was very tired and it was time. It feels so strange not to have him here. I adopted Moose (American Bulldog) a few days after putting the first one down. This is the first time I've ever had just one dog. My other two got me through a bad divorce and some other not so cool situations over the last 7.5 years. It's amazing how attached you become... and how much you love them. Moose and I will journey on together, and see what the future holds!
  9. I'm not a beginner.... and I sure as hell don't need a lob wedge!
  10. I love Scotch. It was my go to for years. It got too expensive so, I made the plunge into Bourbon. Now, I love them both. I'm an Islay junky...lol.
  11. Jefferson's Ocean Rye. Really good stuff.
  12. I played like s**t tonight on league. I shot 49 for 9 holes. I don't want to use this as an excuse but, my head isn't in golf right now. I have to put my buddy of 14.5 years down on Friday. It's killing me.
  13. That commercial should be on TV...lol.
  14. I don't disagree, but if you're like me and play muni's and public courses, it will definitely take no less than 4 hours. They pack the players on and they don't really care about time... even though they make a show of caring. I find no difference in walkers vs. carters as far as time goes. I've walked my fair share in the past. I can no longer walk more than 9 due to back problems and a surgically repaired shoulder. Unless there is no one ahead of you... and the guy(s) ahead of them, it is just going to be 4 - 4.5 hours.
  15. It all depends on what you like. Scotch is the most diversified spirit that I know of. I'm a big fan of all things Islay. I love the the smoke and peat. Lagavulin.. Laphroaig.. Ardbeg.. Caolila.. Talisker.. (not Isay) same profile. Do you like sweet, smoke, grain? So much to be had with Scotch.
  16. Anything with a urethane cover will do just fine. I play Pro V's because I just do. I've played at least 3 - 4 other urethane balls over the years.... they all work pretty much the same. IMO... people/we get way too deep into this ball thing.
  17. Four Roses was the distiller for Bulleit in the beginning. Tennessee Whiskey is Bourbon by definition: at least 51% corn, stored in new, White Oak, charred barrels for no less than 2 years. The charcoal filtering ads no color or flavoring. Any Bourbon producer can do the same if they choose. Just like all bourbon is whiskey, not all whiskey is bourbon; all Tennessee Whiskey is whiskey, not all whiskey is Tennessee Whiskey. It has to go through the Lincoln County Process (maple charcoal filtering) to be called Tennessee Whiskey.
