  1. Well, I survived. Will post some pics and discuss the round tonight after I get done with a soak in the hot tub. My dogs are barking. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I actually made a two putt par on 15 and felt like I won the lottery. You get a great visual of the elevation when you are standing on the 14th green. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. I have arrived at the Black and trying to loosen up a bit. Range is packed so doubt I will hit any balls before I play just going to roll a few putts. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. #4 and #15 are two great examples. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Only one slight change for tomorrow. Going to play the blue tees due to the condition of the greens. Apparently they were punched this week and a bit slow. No sense is 7600 yards with punched greens. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Nice little 75 today with a lot more good than bad. Not the score I wanted but a good round to build off off. Still not sure why I thought it was a good idea to replace my Titleist irons. I hit them great today. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. 9:30am. I am a seasoned vet and will be ready to go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Sold. Buyer beware Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. So my night at the Bethpage Inn won’t happen and we actually have an approximation of a tee time. Will still take pics of the course and give you my round in detail. If you guys really want my night before it will involve a dinner with the family and a few too many beers when I get home. Not sure pics will do me justice on that front.

  10. I would Channel any swing but mine right now. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. So for the Bethpage Inn it will be cheesesteaks and beer. On the course it will be amino tabs and protein snacks. Not sure I can keep PN&J with bacon cold for the entire 6.5 hour round. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Absolutely beautiful in Long Island for a change. Put the drag radials and the all out tune in the Hellcat today and went out and had fun. Found a Z01 and and Audi R8 to play with. Tried bating a Mustang but cooler heads prevailed on his part. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I actually went to the range and hit balls today. Worked on airborne and forward with mission accomplished. As most of you can tell I hate beating balls. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I am playing the back of the championship box on every hole. Will try and see if I can figure out which tees where used each day and get some pictures. And you are correct, the greens are fairly flat there with mostly subtle breaks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I will take a few pictures from the back tees as that is what I am playing from. Will also be sure to let Tom know you enjoyed the book. You should give Paper Tiger a read, very enjoyable. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. So my wife thinks that I am a lunatic. As I mentioned in another post I played golf with author Tom Coyne last Sunday to help him with research on his new book. He had asked me a few months ago if I have the ability to get him on Bethpage Black. I am a NY resident and never had an issue with getting times. Except for this time....they are not taking tee times, walk up only. Well then the plan was hatched to camp out. So for the first time in my life I will be sleeping overnight in the parking lot to get a shot at the Black the first day that it is open to the public after the PGA. A few have asked to share my experience of playing the Black in major championship shape so I will use this thread to not only comment on my playing experience but also the experience at the Bethpage Inn. Any questions that you guys may have fire away and let me know if there are any spots you want pictures of and I will do my best to get them.
  17. One of my golfing buddies at the office heard I was playing Bethpage Black in Sunday and asked if I had a light bag. I really did not so he cut me a great deal on a Titleist Players 4 bag and it is even in my college colors. Well worth hosting him for a round at my club next month.

  18. Depends on how much shop credit I get for winning the tournament. I tend to get a lot of my gear out of the shop at my club these days. My Vokey wedges all came from another course with the shop credit I had from winning an event and some skins. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. So I will be adding a new driver and three wood to my bag this week after some time with our head pro at my club. I saw him yesterday for a quick peek at my swing and was told to bring my old irons to the lesson and not my Rogue Pros, was not sure why but went with it. Dusted off the Titleist TMBs and went and hit some balls. He had noticed with the lighter shafts in my Rogue Pros my tempo was all over the place and I struggled on full shots. The heavier weight of the shafts in my TMBs corrected that immediately. The main point of the lesson was to look at the driver as I have been fighting a two way miss all season so far. Hit about 35 balls with my Epic Flash and just couldn’t feel it. He had someone from the shop bring out a TS3 and I was just smoking it. We watched the video of swings with both and there was not much difference in my swings with either just seemed the TS3 fit me better. Cut a trade deal with a buddy of mine for a 9.5* TS3 head and also worked out a TS2 15* fairway head as well. The driver will be getting a HZRDUS hand crafted yellow and the three wood will be getting my trusty Diamana blueboard that I have had in my three wood for years. So technically I didn’t buy anything but put new irons and woods in my bag this week. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Last night my son was inducted into National Junior Honor Society. He worked hard this year for this and very proud of him for this accomplishment. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. A few more from yesterday Clubhouse at Fresh Meadow #12 at Fresh Meadow. 445 yard par 4 with the second shot uphill to a brutal green. Bobby Jones at Inwood CC Entry gates #14, short par three playing 155 from the back tees. It was a 4 iron in the wind yesterday.

  22. Before we played at my club yesterday Tom Coyne gifted our club a 1 of 100 print that he is giving to each of the US Open clubs that he is playing. The print was done by Chandler Withington whom is also the head pro at Hazeltine. Our head pro Kyle Higgins was thrilled with the gift and it will be framed and displayed at our club for years to come. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Was fortunate to host author Tom Coyne today and my home club and a friend of mine that is a member at Fresh Meadow hosted us for a morning 18. Some good golf and some not so good golf but overall a fun day on the course. No idea what I shot for either round as the wind in the afternoon was just brutal. Overall a fun day at two US Open courses. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  24. This one may kill me. She is the female version of me and that is not good. Very smart and very stubborn. At the communion party today I asked her if I could put the golf tournament on TV. She said yes and then said at least you didn’t play golf today. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. God bless my youngest on her communion day. Daddy needs a beer or twelve. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
