  1. Welcome from the dry side of the state!! Getting any push cart is difficult right now since many people started walking when courses opened up after COVID-19. Supply and demand. Maybe by August the supply will catch up.
  2. Memorial Day. Course puts America Flags on the top of pins. In past years they put out a stand for the pin so the flag doesn't touch the ground when the pin is pulled. Not a problem this year!! My problem is I use GPS and don't have the same feel for pin locations as when the red, yellow, blue flags are used. My wife has the laser, but I'm too manly stupid to ask for directions. My swing, especially with the driver, was better today. Must have been because my back was sore. I only had two bad holes, and those two holes might have cost me a chance at shooting my age... with NO birdies!! The first bad hole was the par 3 #4 hole. I thought I had a good number; made a good swing; 20 feet short in the bunker. This bunker has a steep 4 foot lip, very little sand and the bunker was wet from irrigation last night... flew the green! Made a double!! The second bad hole was my nemesis, the par 5 #18 hole. Good drive (for me) but thinned my second shot into the fairway bunker and had to punch out. Hit my 4th shot into that same bunker up by the green. Made another double!!! I've birdied both of those holes in the past week!!! Soooo....... a 78 with two doubles.
  3. Someone posted pictures of his outdoor putting green a year or so ago. It looked beautiful, but don't remember who it was. I'm not searching, but you might want to do a search and contact him about what he thinks now.
  4. From what I was told, Kyle goes by your driver swing speed and generally thinks most people with low swing speed will be using a light-weight driver. SSG standard for the Men's set is based off a driver that is 312-315g. My driver at the time was 336g; btw my current driver is 330g. I also checked my wife's driver with a 50g L flex shaft and it weighed 306g or 5 grams more than the Blue stick, so their 20%lighter, 10% lighter, 5% heavier standard doesn't work for ladies either. I started with the Yellow, Green, Blue set which was fine to start with, but as I progressed the Green stick was as fast as the Yellow stick, and I couldn't get the Yellow stick any faster. SSG sent me the Red stick and I used the Green, Blue, and Red starting at Week 9. Don't think that the SSG sticks are anywhere close to the swingweight of your driver. The Blue stick is B6, the Red stick is E1, and the others don't register at all. That may be why I didn't swing the Yellow stick every well and have trouble with any light weight drivers. I can't argue with the results of the SSG protocol, even if the stick weights don't measure up to the standard. I gained speed using the Senior set and continued to gain speed with the men's set. What I don't know is whether or not I would have seen the same improvement as I got only using the Senior set. But I know that I prefer heavier clubs; helps with swing plane.
  5. Nice!! Las Positas was the very first course where I played golf while on a business trip to Livermore in 1991. While there for 2 weeks, seven guys I worked with were playing on Sunday and needed one more to fill out two foursomes. Crappy rental clubs... I don't even know what my score was, but I know I never made a par and don't know if I made a bogey. Went home and decided to start hitting balls on the range. Didn't play again until the next year... but I was hooked.
  6. Case in point... I had one birdie and shot 88 today. Fortunately, my wife had a not-so-good round and shot 91 otherwise she would have beat me. That hasn't happened since before I had my knee replaced 6 years ago. She would have if she hadn't taken a quad on #18. She needs bunker work.
  7. Founders Brewing Porter while I BBQ baby back ribs...
  8. Happy Birthday! Enjoy your very special day!
  9. So far 12/18. The six left are 7,8,9,10,12, and 17. I have 3 par 3's left. #8 is a very tough birdie, playing anywhere from 170-218 usually into the wind. #12 I aced two years ago. #17 is supposedly the easiest hole on the course.
  10. 3 birdies today and I needed 2 of them... both par 3's.
  11. It was the best of times. It was the worst of times. Interesting day today. Shot 79. The good news... I had 3 birdies, and I got to check off 2 more holes in the 2020 Birdie Challenge thread. #4 is a fairly straightforward par 3 playing downhill into the wind most days. I've birdied that hole many times over the years, but it had eluded me this year until today. The other is the par 3 #15 which has always been a difficult hole for me; usually into the wind 150-185 yards with trouble left and right. Today the wind was favorable. The bad news is that I got back-to-back doubles on #9 and #10. Woulda, shoulda, coulda been a very nice round.
  12. Great round!! Now you have to replace the Broke 100 badge with a Broke 90 badge. Congratulations!!
  13. The distribution of ages at a course is probably very regional and economic driven. The age groups for this poll doesn't reflect the age of golfers at our muni, and I expect it's no different at other courses in my area. While we have a group of juniors, most players during the week are over 50... way over. On Fri-Sun the age drops a little as people that work come out to play and except for a few of us "old people", the upper age groups stay home.
  14. So.... now what do I do with my white belt??
