  1. I’d rather have 200 into a green from the fairway instead of 140 from the trees or Worse. Best round last year was all 3 or 5 irons off the tee on par 4’s and 5’s. Even if I miss GIR I can rely on the wedge game to get me close. Yeah... that putting thing. I’m with you on that... I’d rather chip. But I am going to make an effort to practice more putting this year.
  2. Inside takeaway is bad... very bad for me. Especially when trying to hit a draw... can’t get much more inside from and inside takeaway... shite goes last naming.
  3. 66° and gorgeous but not a damn course open within driving distance.
  4. Could try the BStone RX or RXS Srixon Q Star Tour Wilson Duo Pro Or any other ball with a urethane cover, should help with green holding power.
  5. 2 iron, 6 iron, 9 iron, 56°, Putter The perfect every day set.
  6. Just ran a 75% effort 1.5 mile at 10:38... Need to shave off 45 seconds so I can beat the kids at work Monday. I’ve got 10 years on them all. Only 2 that I’m worried about. A sub 10 will probably put me in 3rd.
  7. Yep. I think he’s good as he once was. It will be a feat for sure. But if there is anyone that can do it... it’s Tiger. He’s fragile, 40 something, but man he’s got game. But I’d wager that he is in as good of physical shape in a long time, and probably could out bench half the tour. Tiger vs the majority of the guys out there? I’d take Tiger over them all. Anyone in the Top 20 will be challenging and always were. But I’d still pick him even at 43 years old. [emoji3]
  8. Snuck out on the range.... Got the irons working. Got the pull fade down pat. Jason Day height 3 iron fades. The push draw needs work. Over all I’ll give the irons 90% grade. Wedges I must be getting a little hands cause they are launching higher than I’d like. 75% Woods.... I’d rather not talk about. 5% or less. I hate the driver, and 3 wood. Always have.
  9. Here’s my prediction on how Tiger will get it done. US Open at Pebble #16 Open Championship in 2021 at St. Andrews #17 Masters 2022 #18 Will become the first 50+ to Win twice. The 2025 Masters #19 and the 2025 Open Championship #20. I feel he is going to win 90. So we’ll sprinkle in a few smaller events and maybe another WGC.
  10. Congrats!! Hopefully see some good results. WOOO!!!
  11. Since I can remember I’ve left the stick in while playing alone. I will say it had never made me miss a putt. Backboarded a few chips and approach shots off it, but never got “pinned” on a putt. Helps with my depth perception too. So this new rule really doesn’t apply to me because I’ve been doing it for years.... [emoji16]
  12. Boss and I are planning to play Greywalls at the end of May. Should be a good time. https://golfgreywalls.com
  13. Last years Italian Open venue was gorgeous. And the French Open a few years back that Tommy won set them up well for the Ryder Cup. How far is Mammoth Dunes from you? That would be a good one to play. It’s on my bucket list.
  14. Thanks to BoSox04 in the RBC thread I had the idea to make this one. After watching more European Tour events in the last few years my two favorite stretches of tournaments are in the pictures below. Have a favorite stretch? Tell us about it.
  15. I’m actually surprised they haven’t brought Tom Watson into the fold...
  16. Really wish I would have taken that spring break trip... I could probably lose a few dozen balls on the Harbour Town Links...
