  1. Happy Birthday @MGoBlue100 I wish you many birdies and few putts!!
  2. Yes, similar but different, at least from my experience. You HAVE to wait when fly casting to allow the line to travel. Similarly, I HAVE to wait when using my Skilz Gold Flex to allow the weight to properly flex the shaft, just not as long as fly casting. Since clubs have a different weight and flex and golf swings have varying lengths depending on the shot required, the transition isn't as obvious, and it's very easy to have an incorrect move at transition. Of course, pros are better at this than amateurs! I agree about the light grip and smooth swing, but be careful about the SLOW part. Slow can equal short. Need to maintain the proper tempo.
  3. Yeah, it's mid-60's and sunny for the next 10 days but it will be below freezing early in the mornings for the next 3 days. Frost delays!!!
  4. I've played in many parts of the country, and I generally like most courses as long as the conditions are good; they don't have to be great, but they should be good based on what I pay. I generally research courses as best I can before I pick them. Most any course is challenging the way I play, so not being overly difficult is a plus for me. I played a course in Florida once that had fairway bunkers that I could only hit a sand wedge out because the lips were so high. That's stupid, not challenging. I enjoy courses that have nice scenery and no or minimal housing. If houses or condos are set back far enough or they get lost in the trees, that's OK. I've been spoiled by playing on courses here at home that are not in housing developments.
  5. In Spokane last night they had a snow storm... downed trees and power lines. 22,000 without power and schools closed. They almost never close schools in Spokane!! Temps dropping like a rock here tonight. Yesterday it was 78º and a low of 58º... today at 2pm it's 53º and the low tonight is supposed to be 24º Brrrrrrr!!!
  6. I thought you'd be in AZ by now.

    A lot of hype, but I won't see it. The world is already too dark for my tastes.
  8. I've done that once, and it was this year!! I saw no reason to keep playing and grooving a shot I don't need! Many years ago in AZ, I should have walked off for the same reason but I was playing a resort course with my wife and friends. Happened on the 2nd hole and I played the rest of the round with driver and hybrids!! We don't get much lightning but the clubhouse has a weather radar and will send out the marshal to get people off the course when a storm gets close. We also don't get much rain here in the desert. If it looks like it's going to rain, I'll wait until it passes... maybe an hour at most. When I play when traveling, I'll play in the rain as long as the course allows it. My wife and I have quit because of slow play on the weekend. It's a muni and I expect some slow play, but when it gets ridiculous, I'm done. Early this year we quit after 6 holes when we hit the 2 hour mark. We came back later in the day and finished our round. It's nice to be members, even at a muni!!
  9. Nice haul... and not one Snell. Must be used by better players!!
  10. Happy belated birthday @revkevand @newballcoach and best wishes for many more. Keep it in the short grass!!
  11. Sorta just for fitting, but the next closest is in Scottsdale!! I will be in Corvallis, OR on Tuesday 10/22 visiting my dad on his 89th birthday. It's about a 3 hour drive, depending on weather, from there to Bend over the pass in the Cascade range. If the weather is decent, my wife and I will play golf on Friday, then drive 4 hours home. Thanks for the warning!! We are already set up for cold weather golf!! Wind shifted out of the north yesterday and temps dropped... tonight's low is supposed to be 26º, but it's looking good for the next few days with temps in the upper 60's.
  12. If you look in the mirror, that's what you'd see in the dictionary if you looked it up.
  13. Bryce Canyon is may fav!!

    Happy thread

    We turned it on for a couple of days last week, but it's been off over this last weekend. However, tomorrow night the low is supposed to be in the 20's. Fall is in the air!!
  15. Many of us on this forum do!!
  16. I heard today that Kevin Na might be the only winner on tour that had negative strokes-gained tee to green against the field. I guess record putting makes up for it. I also heard that Tony Finau was -9 yesterday and was ranked last in strokes-gained putting. So I guess putting doesn't matter. Well... now I'm confused!!!
  17. I played better this morning but only had time for 9 holes with the 3 geezers walking. Shot +4, which after yesterday's +11 on the front nine seemed like I was cruisin'. Bright and early...
  18. Hey!! What's one of our cats doing in Ohio??
  19. Shot 92... didn't make a par until #11. At least I'm done moving the heavy furniture. Hopefully, I'll play better tomorrow. It's supposed to be 80º and sunshine. My goal is to shoot the temperature!
  20. Ancient astronauts theorists say YES!
  21. Play cheap, old balls and maybe you will find expensive tour balls during your 3 minutes.
  22. My wife needs new irons. When I was at our one-and-only golf store last week, I saw the demo club and decided to hit it... stupid straight and very consistent flight. If I needed new irons, I might consider a set. I haven't got her into the store yet to try; maybe after all this moving is over. Their website says that you can buy a set or individual clubs, but they list individual clubs as #2, #3 and wedges, but sets start at 4-PW or 5-SW. My wife doesn't need/want a #4, #5, or #6 for that matter. She already has hybrids. I have considered getting a #2 and/or #3 HL4 Iron Wood to replace my hybrid.
  23. Have you heard of any politician named "Honest ____" since Honest Abe?
