    Cooking

    Being a retired firefighter myself, I enjoy time in the kitchen now that I know I won't be interupted by the bells going off! I'm pretty good at soups and stews, quite often just winging it based on what's in the freezer and the pantry. I also check "All Recipes.com" for suggestions. Good Luck!
  2. PXG has a new store in Fairfax, across from Woodson H.S. Get an appointment and get fit!
  3. Pretty sure I can make the August dates. Already have a commitment for September. I haven't played Queenstown in a few years and would love to go back!
  4. I was told a while back to use the following formula to determine which set of tees to play: 5 iron carry distance X 36, for example, say I carry my five iron 175 yards. Multiply by 36 (175 x 36 = 6300). Find a set of tees as close to 6300 as you can on the course you are playing. NOTE: This method calls for carry distance, not carry and roll! It seems to work for me. Good Luck!
  5. Well, I never win these things. But you say there's a chance!
  6. Update: I recently played a course with standard cup placement and a short piece of 1 & 1/2" pvc pipe at the bottom of the cup. I think this is my favorite adaptation so far. PVC piece was short enough to allow room in the cup and I did not see any putts affected (positively or negatively) during play. Would have been a great day if I wouldn't have had a poor putting day! Fairways and greens MyGolfSpy friends!
  7. During this time of pandemic, I have played courses with both the "pool noodle" and the upside-down cup options. I really don't like either, as they appear to affect putts either adversely or occasionally positively (keeping a ball in the hole that should have lipped out). Of the two, the upside down cup option seems to be the more consistent option as it allows a more uniform depth of cup option.
  8. Fun to see everyone's top ten courses. Here are mine: 10. TPC Potomac at Avenel FArm 9. Kapalua, The Bay Course (Plantation Course was being built when I was there) 8. TPC Scottsdale 7. Harbour Town, Hilton Head 6. Pelican Hill 5. Pinehurst #4 4. Pebble Beach 3. Pasatiempo 2. Spyglass Hill 1. Pinehurst #2
  9. Purchased Snell golf balls after reading about them here. Now, my go to ball. Only complaint is the yellow coloring is not embedded in the cover and it does come off.
  10. Driver: Callaway Epic Flash, Fujikura Pro 2.0 stiff 3 wood: Callaway Epic Flash 3 Hybrid: TaylorMade M2 4 Hybrid: TaylorMade M2 Irons: 5 iron -PW PXG 0211, Aerotech Steelfiber i95 stiff 50 and 54 degree wedges: Callaway MD3 58 degree wedge: Callaway PM grind Putter: TaylorMade Ardmore 3
  11. Forcing a three wood off of a bad lie! Take your punishment and hit the 6 iron and get it back in play!
