  1. I wish Mookie a Happy Birthday as well. I find one of the advantages of being in the 70 club, is that businesses just give you the senior discount and don't bother asking your age. Somehow they just know.

    I would love to walk the course, but my health issues will not let me. It is upsetting to me that I call the course even to see if its CPO. However, on those occasions when I am given a handicap flag, I often hear my buds say, "I'll ride with Wahoo". To those that walk the course, I genuinely say enjoy it but more importantly be glad that you can. And ask that you understand that there of those of us that truly love and enjoy the game but must recognize our limitations.

    Meet Your New Moderators!

    Like others, I want to congratulate GolfSpy Stroker and GolfSpy MPR for their selection as our new moderators and to genuinely thank them for assuming those roles. Know that your service to this site is appreciated. I also would like to thank GolfSpy_CG2 and GolfSpy Studque for their efforts to review the applicants and select our new moderators as I'm sure it was not an easy task. We were sure that you would approach the task with due diligence and select the best individuals to fill the role. You did a great job and did not let us down.

    Titleist Survey

    Thank you for your response. It seems that we are not only reading from the same book, but are on the same page as well.

    Titleist Survey

    Mind if I ask- if any, what was the basic theme of your responses regarding restricting distances. In other words, what were you trying to convey to them.

    Titleist Survey

    Through e-mail, I received a request from Titleist to participate in a survey regarding the impact of hitting distance. It opened with: "The USGA and the R&A are studying the impact of hitting distance on the game of golf. One of the considerations is additional restrictions that would result in reduced hitting distance. ......Titleist is working with these groups and wants to understand your perspective." As requested I completed the survey. Initially, it seemed that the questions were to get of picture of me as a golfer--my age, where I played, how much I played, etc. It then got into topics such as my personal perceptions of professional golf and the impact of hitting distances. Followed by questions regarding my personal perspective on reduced hitting distances regarding my play and equipment purchases. Again, while there were multiple questions, in 25 words or less the theme of my responses was that I would not be fond of restricting distance, that it could reduce the enjoyment of the game for me, my playing participation and I would suspect more important to Titleist my equipment purchases. Has anyone else participated in the survey and if so, what was the basic theme of your responses?

    What do you like about golf

    Agreed and I endorse the comments of others. But golf also provides an additional helpful factor for me at my age. Its a means to check my prostate. If I can play 18 holes without needing to pee, I figure my prostate is OK. It avoids having to endure that rather unpleasant test. The one where you hope to never see two hands on your shoulders.

    What is your biggest swing fault

    In my case, it is an apparent disconnect between my brain and my body. My brain visualizes a rather effective swing and instructs the body based on that visual. However, my body responds to the brain with "brain, are you serious". The body tells the brain, while you may not recognize age, I must.

    Whats your best joke?

    That reminds me of the story of the guy that would ask the Pharmacist to cut his Viagra into quarters. The Pharmacist stated that it would weaken its potency. The guy replied--I'm just trying not to piss on my shoes. Using Viagra is a lot like going to Disney World-one must wait an hour for a 3 minute ride. Many nursing homes give their male residents a nightly Viagra-it keeps them from rolling out of bed.

    Traditions of past Christmas’s

    Like most, I have my typical childhood Christmas memories, but I do have one from my elementary school years, one that I would not label perhaps as one of my fondest. During that time, I got my first drum, it was a parade drum. Like many rural communities, the Church served as its social center as well. Each year the Church would have a Christmas program. On a couple of occasions, an over sided bath rope would be put on me, along with a towel wrapped around my head and strapped to my drum wrapped with a sheep skin of some sort. The choir would sing "Little Drummer Boy" and at the appropriate times, they would point to me and I would "rat a tat tat" on my drum.

    Chicago PD role

    Joke if you wish, but I spent my professional life in the hospital industry and one of my perks was to join them as often as I could. If you go to a medical seminar in Vegas with some specialty docs, you can parasite your way to a comp at Shadow Creek.

    Tee it forward

    Being a senior, I know that the gators pay more attention to the back tees because that is where the fresh meat hangs out.

    Are you a no thought swinger of the club?

    Personally, I find that I do better if I approach golf as an "empty headed" game. Throughout the winter months my brain has been instructing my body. On the course, its time to see if my body has listened. Off the course, I may get the brain to send a reminder. For reasons that I cannot explain, on tee shots, I find that I do better if I do not take a practice swing.
  15. If I'm correct thinking that it was a PM via this site. If so, with my "Old Fart" badge, I really would not expect any.
