    Be honest - is MGS dying

    It has been said that your friends are the family that you get to choose. This site extremely is important to me because this is where my friends reside. Friends that I have met and enjoyed a round of golf and my cyber friends that I have yet to meet but would love to. Friendships through the love of the game and enjoyable always civil discussions. I have been on other sites where forming friendships is a bit more difficult. So in a manner of speaking this site is my golfing family.

    Whats your best joke?

    It does remind me of the one about the guy that told his buds that he would not be able to play in their normal Saturday morning foursome because his wife demanded that he stay home. While he was a bit later than usual, he did show up to play. His buds asked why are you here, we thought that you wife wanted you home. He replied " well ya see it is our anniversary. The wife and I got up had some breakfast and then the wife said- tie me to the bed and then do whatever you want. So here I am.

    Shell's Wonderful World of Golf - u watching?

    Yes, watching them does bring back some memories for us seasoned golfers. To put an additional personal perspective, my first pair of golf shoes had kilties. While I understand the current use of soft spikes, I kind of miss the clicking sound of the old spikes. Like me, I assume you remember the tournaments sponsored by entertainers such as Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Andy Williams among others.

    Shell's Wonderful World of Golf - u watching?

    I certainly am glad that you enjoy and appreciate the old days. However, for me, it may be a bit more because I can remember the old days of Shell's Wonderful World of Golf.

    Merry Christmas MGS Forum

    While I want to wish a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all, I'm posting to you Rev, because I want to make sure that you wish Penny a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from her MGS friends.

    Whats your best joke?

    A couple of Canadian buds came to the US on a snowbird golf trip. Unfortunately, one of them took ill and had to be admitted into a hospital. Upon leaving his room after treating him, a nurse reported to a fellow nurse. That Canadian patient has Swan tattooed on his pecker. Well, the other nurse couldn't resist going in to see. A while later, she comes out and says: That tattoo doesn't say Swan, it says Saskatchewan.

    Is golf your main hobby, or just one of many?

    Now that I am days from my retirement, for me, it is my hope that golf will not be a hobby, but a lifestyle, in a manner of speaking. No longer having professional commitments, I hope to play more golf and enjoy the game with my fellow "old coots". Moreover, it is my intent or hope to find a role of some sort within golf, either at a course or shop. Not only do I love the game, I love being with and around my fellow golfers. While my age and health may limit my ability and opportunity to play, such a role will keep me around the game and my fellow golfers. To me, that is just as important as playing.
  8. 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.

    Riding vs. Walking

    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

    Agreed.

    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.
