  1. Good luck at the cardiologist. Hope it’s nothing. Bacon makes everything better. Just sayin.
  2. I thought I’d try OnCore Elixr balls. They are donating $5 from each dozen Flag Special Edition Logo Balls to the PGA Hope program to assist veterans.
  3. Prayers for your family in this difficult time.
  4. A couple of high profile errant shot victims. In recent memory I don’t recall another player getting hit by an errant shot. https://www.golfdigest.com/story/pga-championship-2022-sage-steele-face-jon-rahm?utm_medium=email&utm_source=052022&utm_campaign=breakingnewspm&utm_content=DM27978&uuid=be3787a0-4b63-46c5-972f-b304c7d434f3
  5. Nice looking course. Love the pictures in the mist. I used to play Harding Park in San Francisco, well before it was upgraded to its current condition. We’d frequently tee of in the fog and weren’t exactly sure where our drives landed. Nice head covers
  6. That first picture sure is a well protected green.
  7. Wasn’t that the setting for Kindergarten Cop?
  8. I was at Ft. Lewis well before the Joint Base concept. Boy I’m old. LOL My wife and I loved going for lunch and enjoying a good beer at Boundary Bay Brewing.
  9. A couple of weeks ago I sent my Ping G410 Crossover to Ping for repair. The shaft was twisting in the head. I had a Golf Pride MCC Plus 4 teams grip in blue and gold installed on my club.The Ping repair tech informed me that they would not be able match that grip if they needed to replace the shaft. When Ping received my club they called me to inform me that indeed they would need to replace the shaft. They asked me which grip I would like. I asked if they had a gray MCC Plus 4 grip. The tech said yes. I asked for that one and asked that they install it logo down. I received my club back today. At no point did the repair tech indicate that it was an Align version of the MCC Plus 4 grip. I will be visiting Golf Galaxy to pick out a new grip. I feel bad wasting a new grip. Sometimes that last 10% is the toughest to achieve. I learned that early in my career installing and maintaining cardiovascular X-Ray systems.
  10. I’ve lived in Washington twice. Once courtesy of Uncle Sam at Ft. Lewis and later in life for 17 years just north of Seattle. The view of Mt. Rainier never got old.
  11. When it comes to hitting breakfast, I’m definitely a plus handicap. Hood luck with your surgery.
  12. If I’m gaming a putter then I’m going with Evnroll’s sweet face milling but if it’s pure aesthetics then I like a deep fly mill. Another branch of putter appearance is what finish do you like? Bettinardi offers a finish called Caramel Carbon on their raw carbon putters that looks great and Scotty’s oil can finish is a favorite.
  13. I tested the Evnroll ER11v last year for the forum. You could customize it and it does have interchangeable weights. One of the great features of the ER11v is the multiple styles of hosels to choose from and you can also select their “Gravity Grip” to counter balance the putter. The ER11v now is my gamer. Oh and Golf Galaxy carries Evnroll.
  14. I tried a New England IPA from Prison City Brewing in Auburn, NY. It’s called So Stupendous. 6.7% ABV. It was made using Citra and Strata hops. It’s nice and hazy with taste of grapefruit. Highly recommended.
  15. I’m a believer in climbing back on the horse that threw you. Hang in there.
  16. I added a topic in Courses and hope it’s not somewhere else on the forum as I couldn’t find it. “Introduce Your “Home” Course”. I thought it would be fun to see where our fellow spies call “home”.
  17. My “home” course is Radisson Greens in Balwinsville, NY. It is an 18 hole par 72 course that plays at 6360 yards from the White Tees. If you’re adventurous you can play the Blue Tees at 7010 yards. The course is a Robert Trent Jones Senior design. It’s very tree lined and tight in spots. I know folks say trees are 95% air but I seem to always find 100% tree. 1st Par 5 dogleg left. The fairway bunkers are at the corner. 2nd Par 3 3rd Par 5 slight dogleg left. From the second shot in the right rough. 4th Par 4 5th Par 4 from the fairway. 6th Par 4 from the fairway. 7th Par 3 8th Par 4 9th Par 4
  18. Greetings, please advise if this exists elsewhere on the forum. I thought it would be cool to see where my fellow spies call “home” for golf.
  19. This little one was smaller than my ball.
  20. Today’s round included a turtle rescue. I found this little guy on the 3rd green and moved him pond adjacent.
  21. My Tuesday 9 started off horribly. It was a bit chilly at 53° and winds. Nothing seemed to work on the first 2 holes. But things fortunately improved as the round went on. My driver miss today remains to the left which is a marked difference from a horrible slice last season. Putting was completely gone today. Three 3 putts, one 1 putt and the rest were 2 putts. The positive take away was my misses now don’t result with lost balls. I still have a real difficult time with uneven lies. But I was able to get out and have fun.
  22. Today’s shot of the day was a 141 yard 7 iron from the rough to the green, to 15ft, fronted by water on my nemesis hole, a 517 yard par 5. For me this hole is a success if I don’t lose a ball.
  23. Rickie is such a great ambassador but his game has dropped off and it seems that his option to remain in professional golf may not be on the PGA tour. I fear his opportunity to remain a professional is with LIV Golf.
