  1. My brother and I play at Riceland a few times a season... nice little course. The Pines a nice course. Very challenging, yet fair. It's one of my favorite places to play. Can you drive #1 at Riceland? I figure if you compete in long drive, that shouldn't be hard for you.
  2. I kept a HC on a free site for the last few years. I never had anyone validate my scores... I just entered them in and it spit out my HC. For the last 4 years I've hovered around a 9.6 most of the time, sometimes a high 8. I've dropped the free site and recording scores because of the current situation.... and I really just don't care about HC anymore. If I had to guess... and I'm honest with myself, the way I'm playing right now ... I'm probably around 11-12 HC. I'm not playing nearly as much as I would like and I'm struggling when I do.
  3. I would think that tee height would also come into play (with driver). If you move the ball closer to your lead foot, wouldn't increasing tee height become necessary in order to not hit the ball on the bottom of the club?
  4. I agree. I went ahead and bought the ER2 4 years ago direct from EVNRoll. I couldn't be happier. Maybe just dumb luck that it works for me?
  5. Elvis Juice. Grapefruit infused IPA . Tasty stuff!
  6. I cut my driver shaft to 44.5 a couple of years ago. I didn't care about ruining the shaft or changing the swing weight. I could still hit it pretty much the same distance, but I found myself needing to tee the ball higher... and still catching it low on the face about half the time. I went back to 45.5 and immediately started hitting more consistent. My new driver (TS3) has a 45.75 shaft. I can hi it really well about 50% of the time. I am also 5'9". I have lost quite a bit of weight over the Winter. I attribute the weight loss to my inconsistent swing, and not shaft length. It isn't just the driver... I'm struggling with all clubs right now. I have to figure out how to play at this weight, because I'm not gaining it back!
  7. Maple is a traditional wood cutting boards. If you plan to use it as a cutting board, make sure to use a food safe finish. Personally, I would just use mineral oil it it's going to be a cutting board. It's easy to maintain and safe for food prep.
  8. That's the route I would go before cutting all my irons down.
  9. They probably did qualify. Getting it is another thing.
  10. I'm definitely going to check these out when I re-grip. I love the army pattern. Can these be made more mid size with extra tape?
  11. I'll look into these. Thanks.
  12. Yep. I put the Pure Grip logo on the back side so I don't feel like I need to use it to align my grip. I hate logos on grips.
  13. Wow...really! I need to check that out. The last time I played there it was $50 for 18 and a cart. Riceland is a nice course that is very fair in it's layout. My brother and I play there quite a bit. Chippewa is my favorite place, but I might play there twice a season because of the cost. Have you played at Great Trail in Minerva? Super fun and scenic ... and only $28 on weekends with a cart. I don't know how they stay in business...lol.
  14. I would like to try this, but the price is a no go for me. I'll just live with the pain. It isn't like I haven't for the past few years anyway...lol. It's almost normal, now.
  15. I'm going on the 4th season with my Pure Grips. I want new grips, but I don't need them...lol.
  16. I haven't played Turkeyfoot in probably 6 years. It's a fun course, but it's too expensive IMO. My area courses are Lyons Den, (home course) The Elms, Chippewa and Riceland. Chippewa does a good job of keeping things moving, but again, too expensive. They are all public courses, but the other 3 are packed to the gills...lol. Probably because they are very affordable.
  17. Like Kent Rollins and the Beag...lol.
  18. You don't even know...lol. Golf is just about the only thing allowed in Ohio. The courses in my area are stacked with people waiting on the tee boxes. It is every bit of a 5 hour and longer round. I just play and enjoy the time away from home. Somehow a long, slow round is not a big deal right now.
  19. I can't answer this without political overtones creeping in, so I'll just read the responses.
  20. I finally played in league yesterday. I had three triple bogeys in 9 holes...lol. I shot 49. I can see this is going to be an interesting season. On a good note... I did hit the TS3 fairly well. This is going to be an ongoing struggle with this club, I think. Next time out will probably make me want to ditch it again.
  21. Sipping a pour of 1792.... just purchased...lol. Listening to Loreenna McKennett. She is a selfish pleasure of mine. A clouded dream on an earthly night Hangs upon the crescent moon A voiceless song in an ageless light Sings at the coming dawn Birds in flight are calling there where the heart moves the stones there that my heart is longing for All for, for the love of you A painting hangs on an ivy wall Nestled in the emerald moss The eyes declare a truce of trust then it draws me far away deep in the desert twilight Sand melts in pools of the sky darkness lays her crimson cloak lamps will call, call me home And so it's there my homage's due Clutched by the still of the night now I feel, feel you move And every breath, breath is full So it's there my homage's due Clutched by the still of the night Even the distance feels so near All for, for the love of you A clouded dream on an earthly night Hangs upon the crescent moon A voiceless song in an ageless light Sings at the coming dawn Birds in flight are calling there Where the heart moves the stones there that my heart is longing for All for, for the love of you
  22. My course has just outfitted all the carts with a lexan shield in the middle to separate people. It seems like a good idea until both guys get out and grab clubs from their bags.
  23. Nothing wrong with Liver and Onions.
  24. If it wasn't wet, I'd be all over morning golf. I hate wet!
