    Not sure yet. Have a few paths that I can go down so weighing all my options. Hoping that the path that is best will be one that gets me closer to home.

    Only played 8 back got really tight on the last two holes of that 8. I couldn’t even hit my driver on 9 because of how tight it was. I didn’t swing hard at all and my furthest drive was a whopping 250 that’s well short of my normal drives. I was +8 through the 8 and most of that was the last two holes and the first. I was par or bogey with one birdie. I can see doing more than 9 is quite a ways off.

    Bill, to be honest Martha plays several times a week with ladies from her league, and when we play together, she has... on more than one occasion... driven by my tee!!  😱  Yes, she drives the cart!  I used to drive but I got tired of her complaining about what I do... or don't do when I drive.  So now I just ride and keep my mouth shut.  🤐  All good now.

    The ultra fabulous role of the Standard Bearer.  First one out onto the course with the leadoff playing group of the 2023 PGA Championship at Oak Hill CC.

    Oh, that's even worse and really funny.  Start making him buy you a beer or glass of wine for each offense 😊.
    I have to admit that when we played the PNW Spy Meet-up the past handful of years, I did this to Martha ( @Kenny B's wife) a handful of times over the handful of rounds we played.  To her credit, she never gave me the stink-eye one time.

    As I continue to seek improvement, i dive into each of my rounds to identify trends and areas for potential improvement.   
     
    tee shots: I have been pushing tee shots as of late.  Need to go back to what I learned doing the driver speed lab with MGS and that I hit better tee shots when I try to maximize swing speed and not trying to control my swing to “hit a better tee shot”.  
     
    approach shots: finding my groove here; iron shots are pretty solid.   Might even swap out my hybrid and put the 5 iron back into the bag.  This is based on iron testing at MGS, swing is feeling really good
    Short game: continues to be the problem area.  Mixture of good and bad shots.  During practice I am hitting the ball well, just not always translating to the course
    putting: been on an uptick lately.  Worked on setup and speed control at home ad have seem improvement during actual play.  Still not 100% comfortable but it’s getting better.  
     
    Instruction: I have gone through a few coaches/instructors since this tread started. My first was a great coach that was helping both online and in person.  Had been working with him for years and for some reason I got ghosted.   Since then I have been searching and did a few in person lessons and one via online instruction.   Both were good instructors,  just not sure they were right for me.    For now, going to self assess and see what I can figure out.

    I volunteer for tournaments we host, and it’s always a lot of fun.  In Feb Mercer College played host for a women’s tournament here, then a few weeks ago we hosted the men’s Southern Conference tournament.  
    For the women’s tournament I was a spotter on a long uphill par 5 where the second shot is blind, so I’d often have to move to the middle of the fairway to hold back the next group until it was clear to hit. 
    So while moving in position, here comes 2 of the girls, one from Indiana Univ, and the other from Butler.  They had just met and they were talking about their majors and classes they were taking.  One commented how much she loved any class dealing with supply chain.  Then they both stepped up to their balls and hit great shots just 6’-8’ from the pin.  Then both thanked me for being there and helping as did many others and the coaches. The guys for their tournament were just as gracious, as were the coaches.

    Only played 9. Course was packed and slow. Being a 2 some behind 4 just drags along... Not to mention the group ahead was slow slow. 
    Little annoyed marshalls didn't pair up the 4 or so sets of 2 some ahead of the 4 but in the end just added some range time and all was good!

    Car is 7 years old and only has 14k miles on it. Not sure if this means I baby it or drive the tires off it when I have it out. 
    I say the former considering this is the only repair work that has been done on it in over 7 years. Heck, I am changing out the factory brake pads on it this weekend.

    It is a 2016 and well out of warranty and most of the warranty it had I voided many years ago, unfortunately. Appreciate the reply and the advice. The car was modified quite a bit over the years so that is the main issue…never touched the drive shaft. I fortunately have a good friend that has a shop in PA that builds drag cars and he is ordering up something that will work for me. Funny you mention the CVJ…that is what failed and failed in epic fashion. The video I got today of it or what was left of it was interesting to say the least.

    That’s a VERY good point.  Certainly a first world set of problems to say the least.  Just a bit of nerves and stress is all.
