  1. OUCH!!! Was that on your 120mph swing?

    Does Jordan Spieth have the yips?

    He is next to last in putts from 4 feet; misses more than 1 out of every 4 putts. IF he makes the weekend, he is over par on Sat and Sun. Can't be him; must be time to fire Greller or McCormick.
  3. You need to bring your dad out west to the desert. Hitting down on our fairways on a summer afternoon will cure him! It hurts!!
  4. I had been using the Srixon Z-Star in yellow for the past 2 years. I have one sleeve left. That's why i'll try the MTB-X in yellow. Hopefully, that sleeve will last until they are released.
  5. I will give the Snell MTB-X in yellow a try this spring. I like a yellow ball for those gray days. If I like it, I will make a switch after I use up 3 dozen KSig balls. Might not be until 2020.

    Slow Play Survey

    Waiting for terrible golfers in front of you is bad, but playing alongside terrible golfers IS the worst thing about golf. When my wife and I play on the weekend and we don't have a foursome, we sometimes get paired with... well... not very good golfers. It's a struggle for us. When a hole is open in front of us, we have politely asked if would be OK for us to go on ahead. I hate to be rude, but I have thought that they actually felt better to not be playing with us. Of course, that doesn't help the groups behind them! Actually, in the 3+ years I have been at this muni, I have never seen anyone play from "the tips" that couldn't reasonably play from there. The tips are not that long, only 6700y, but on weekends almost no one plays from there. Maybe it's a resort course thing to do that.

    Slow Play Survey

    The only question I didn't align with the majority was #1. Slow play doesn't affect where or when I play. As a member of a muni, I play there because I have already paid for the year. I will play other courses when asked and that is usually on weekends when play is about the same pace as my course, so it doesn't really matter. There are always slow groups to contend with, but playing on weekends, that is to be expected. It's the time when people that don't play much get out with friends. I don't enjoy it, but it is what it is, if I want to play golf at a muni. As long as the pace is steady, I can deal with it. If it's always a waiting game, I will quit mid-round; maybe come back later in the day. There is another reason for slow play that is not mentioned in Question #3, and it's related to my answer of No in Question #5. Being a muni, my course does not set up the course to be difficult unless it's a tournament weekend. The problem is course design and 8-minute tee times. Because it's muni, the operator is trying to put as many people out on the course as possible; $$$. A combination of less skilled players and close tee times makes groups wait starting on the first tee. Combine that with our first 4 holes... #1 short par 4; #2 short par 4; #3 #1hcp hole; #4 short par 3. Groups are automatically bunch on the #3 tee with water all the way down the left side and in front of the green. Bailing out right puts you in big mounds of grass that then require a forced carry over water from bad lies, or a layup. It's not until the 596y par 5 #5 that groups start spreading out. Yes, the course knows that slow play is a problem, but they have no incentive to solve it, nor ability to mitigate the problem due to course design.
  8. I've loved my Trues over the years; the last few years models didn't last very well, but I hear good things about the Original, OG and Major. I will be getting a pair (not sure which model) this spring. I'm just not that excited about the Brown. I really don't think brown shoes goes very well with any shorts; maybe I need to re-evaluate. The thing I like about Trues is that wearing these shoes is the closest thing to playing barefoot. I feel more connected to the ground. When wearing any other shoe, I feel like I'm wearing elevator shoes. My Skechers GoGolf shoes took a month of wearing to get used to being "so high off the ground."

    Whats your best joke?

    Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year, and every year Morris would say, “Esther, I’d like to ride in that helicopter.” Esther always replied, “I know Morris, but that helicopter ride is fifty dollars, and fifty dollars is fifty dollars.” One year Esther and Morris went to the fair and Morris said, “Esther, I’m 85 years old. If I don’t ride that helicopter, I might not get another chance.” To this, Esther replied, “Morris that helicopter ride is fifty dollars and fifty dollars is fifty dollars.” The pilot overheard the couple and said, “Folks, I’ll make you a deal. I’ll take both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say a word, I won’t charge you! But if you say one word, it’s fifty dollars.” Morris and Esther agreed and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of fancy maneuvers, but not a word was heard. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word. When they landed, the pilot turned to Morris and said, “By golly, I did everything I could to get you to yell, but you didn’t. I’m impressed.” Morris replied, “Well, to tell you the truth, I almost said something when Esther fell out, but you know, fifty dollars is fifty dollars.”

    Will Lucy Li Lose Amateur Status?

    They want her playing at the US Women's Amateur at Augusta in April. There was no other decision.

    I know golf is on....

    I quit watching NASCAR when David Pearson, Cale Yarborough, and Richard Petty quit driving. The big 3 were Ford, Chevy, and Mopar; not Ford, Chevy and Toyota.

    International

    Welcome neighbor! If you have summers off, you are welcome to join us in July for a weekend of golf in the Spokane area. @Har in the Hat started this off and Spokane seems to be central to those interested. Here is the link to the thread...
