  1. I also know that people play golf when they are working from home. The number of people playing golf at my course during weekdays has more than doubled in the last 3 years... and they are not old people like me!!
  2. My wife never gave ME a pin or congratulated me on our 10th anniversary! I'm impressed!
  3. When I started working here in 1970, one of the guys had a countdown to his retirement day in his office. I don't remember the exact number of days left, but it was more than 3000.
  4. Happy Birthday @twyatt700!! Hope you get your birthday round in today!!
  5. Days run together all the time after you retire. Except on days I don't play golf, my days look like... get up, go to home office, work some (chores), check forum, go do most wanted testing, hit balls in hitting bay, go to bed….back to beginning.
  6. GM... going to be a warm 64º and sunny today, but the course f...ed up. No frost delay this morning and it's 35º, but apparently we have a 2 hour "ice delay" because they ran the irrigation last night! We have had a 10:40am tee time with friends we haven't played with yet this year, and we may not get out until noon-ish. So, time to have another cup of coffee and a late breakfast since we won't be done playing until dinner time.
  7. I say go for the 18 hole course! Looks like a challenging course. There are a lot of ways to be a 24 handicap. Some hit the ball a long way but can't keep it in the grass; others are fairly straight like me, but can't overpower a course so I rely on short game and putting. If you can keep the ball in play and play from the correct tees, you should have no problem. Pictures of holes with water make it look worse than they really are. Check it out when you get there. I don't mind playing a mostly par 3 course if I want to just focus on short game, but not for two rounds in a row.
  8. Good Morning everyone! Woke up to 43º... a little cloudy this morning but sun is supposed to come out around noon and warm up to 60º. I see 67º in the forecast!! Today is a fasting day until dinner tonight, so just coffee. My wife is playing this morning with girlfriends; I will head out to practice when the sun is out. I need to work on my short chips.
  9. Happy Birthday @panhndl!! Party Hearty!
  10. So did I. Happy Belated Birthday @chisag and @billybogey!! Sorry I missed it. Sam, I see many more rounds in your future where you shoot your age!!
  11. Sounds like me when I started playing golf. Unfortunately, it not something that you can fix with a "tip". Listen to the guys above; you need someone to see exactly what your issues are if you want to quickly fix your swing. If the advice you get is correct (bad advice can make you worse), it will only be effective after many balls hit on the range. It's difficult to make this change because any change will feel terrible... it should! It's different than what you were doing. Don't despair. If you keep at it, you will begin to hit the ball better as your swing changes. If you go back to what's comfortable, you will do the same old thing... slice. Good luck!
  12. Good Morning everyone and Happy Vernal Equinox!! Warmer this morning!! I was up at 4:45am, daily check of email and deleting spam, and having my two cups of coffee. Did my stretches!! We are having a few showers roll through, so I decided to do some cleaning, but only for 15 minutes! Then changed the grip on my driver; that took 2 minutes. Well, it's still morning and wondering what's for dinner.
  13. Not a good day today. The weather turned; cloudy, breezy and temps about 10º colder than yesterday. My hands never really got warm. Shot 41/39 for a difficult 80. Spent the day scrambling around the course saving some pars and… not! It didn’t help that the round took 4 hours and 20 minutes; our foursome waiting on nearly every shot. Want spring to get here with warm temps soon!!!
  14. Date 03/19/2023 Course Name Columbia Point GC Gross Score 80 Course Handicap 4 Gross Strokes over/under par 8 Net Score to Par 4 Net Score 76 Net Birdies or better 3 Longest Drive 210 Not that good of a day. Weather turned again; chilly and breezy and my hands got cold. Shot 41/39. I manage to make a birdie on #2 after an opening hole bogey, but then it was a day of scrambling. Only 6 GIR today. Ugh!
  15. I’m not really sure; I could look it up on our old scorecards but I would say probably 7-8 times over the past 22 months. I had a couple of times after I turned 74, and maybe 6 more times when I turned 75. I hope to have many more when I turn 76 in May.
