  1. Gonna be listening to a little Garth Brooks in about 3 minutes, according to the countdown.
  2. Sounds like a good time. I'm sure my first set was only 6 clubs, too. Some of it would depend on the course, but from my current setup I'd probably go 3h, 6, 9, 56* and putter. Good luck! Make sure you give us an update.
  3. Just got my daughter's car running after at least 6 weeks. Security system had the starter and fuel pump disabled, and I'm waaaay too cheap to pay the dealership $500 just to figure out what they're going to do to fix a 19 year old car. What a relief.
  4. Outstanding, buddy. Keep it up!
  5. You know the Bruins hat is coming out next time we play. Maybe the Bruins bag, headcovers, towels, tees and shirt, too!
  6. Just remember, we still have 2 rounds to go. And, if you have Day, Oosthuizen, Fleetwood or Noren, the infamous Sportsman curse hasn't struck yet. Just warning y'all...
  7. Excellent. Glad you got a chance to experience the music. It's always fun to see kids in that environment.
  8. He needs to find an exorcist immediately!
  9. Get off my lawn, ya dang millennial! (Congratulations, though.)
  10. Welcome to the forums. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. I realized I was "good" when I wasn't anymore. I was much better when I was 18 than I am now. As soon as I started to really suck, that's when I realized I'd been "good." I expect that happens to other people as well as they get older, fatter and less flexible. I'd like to be better, but I'm satisfied with having a good time. I don't have the time or resources to practice that much and can only squeeze in a round per week at most, so I'm resigned to my fate. Don't worry about the feeling that you're going backwards sometimes. It's entirely to be expected, and 25 years of coaching HS sports has taught me it's really common when there's a lot of progress made in a short time. Think about how much better you must be getting if your coach is adding to what you're already doing. A good coach wouldn't do that if you weren't progressing.
  11. Dang, that's powerful stuff. Thanks for linking to it.
  12. I'll second that! Happy birthday!
  13. Got a chance to play yesterday, and I was atrocious. However, these balls are straight! If I pulled or pushed one, the ball may be offline, but it got there in a straight line. More to come later.

    Congratulations, my friend. It's been highly entertaining hearing what you have to say. Looking forward to the next 10k.
  15. I think you're all set. I'm going to play Alex Freakin' Noren this week. Disaster just waiting to happen.
  16. It'll be very interesting to see the final numbers. I remember reading an article (I think maybe on the Wilson Duo) where the designers were discussing the idea that everyone's premium balls perform basically the same because of some of the restrictions they have to meet to get approval. Maybe not...?
  17. I'm sure I've seen something like the "Putt-Putt National Championships" on TV before. Maybe on "The Ocho?"
  18. I'd settle for a C squad right now. My squad gets an "F" for round one.
