  1. I was playing for a while in a traveling league of older gentlemen that is run by my friend's father. My friend and I played from the white tees while the older guys played the senior tees. Playing with these guys has been just a great time! The stories, knowledge and advice was/is priceless. 

    Some of them got tired toward the end of rounds. Some of them couldn't hit farther than 135 yard with a driver. Some of them were really good short game players. Some of them were lights out putters. I would recommend that any of you younger guys reading this, go out and play golf with the seniors. You will have a blast..... and you just may learn something! 😉

  2. Played Sunday with my brother and two guys from "work". My last 5 rounds were in the 70's............... I knew I was due for a fall...lol. I shot 43 both sides. Not terrible, I just couldn't get the putts to drop.

  3. When this CV thing is "behind us" and I get back to work. I'm seriously looking at the Mizuno JPX 921 forged. I was looking at the Mizuno SC18 MMC's.... and then the Mizuno MP 20 MMC's. I think the 921 forged is what I'm looking for in an iron. I will need to hit them, of course.

    I'll stick with the OnCore Elixer. A really good ball which was just reduced to $30.

    I found one of those last week and I played the rest of my round and a whole round the next day with it. I really liked it. Too bad I lost it on the first tee the next time out...lol.

    I know;  I was being pretty cryptic in my post and know things are tough all around   I previously posted about my wife and her broken ankle;  additionally my father-in-law passed away on July 25,  and I spent yesterday in the parking lot of the hospital (since I couldn't go in) waiting to hear info on my mother who had a heart attack.   She is in ICU and will be having tests today to see what is going on.  And of course during this, I need to help take my daughter back to school tomorrow.  

    I'm sorry you are having to deal with all that.... it sucks. My mother is 83 and she has Pancreatic cancer. She has been on Chemo for 3 years. She was in an auto accident 2 weeks ago.... sprained wrist, deep tissue bruise on her repaired hip and a broken #1 cervical bone in her neck. Between worrying about her and trying to survive through this CV19 thing, there isn't much to be happy about...lol.

    I just hand it over to God with the faith that He will provide.... even though it's hard to do.

    I just want to go on record as saying the last couple of months has officially sucked.  I need something good to happen


    I hear ya brother!

    I started working for a guy on my golf league for cash under the table. Not a lot of money, but I'm not sitting at home watching bad news on TV all day...lol.

  7. I'm very interested in the 921 forged.  Have to see how things play out in the next few months. New clubs aren't in the mix right now.

  8. As one who talked about giving up the game, (no way I would ever do that...lol) it is definitely about attitude and perseverance (mental). Everyone struggles with this game at times. Ya just gotta keep slogging through it.
