  1. Happy Birthday. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  2. Tried an "experiment" today. Played a short exec. with my son, and played the front with my usual reckless abandon. "You know I've got to try it" is one of my favorite expressions. Finished that side at +16. On the back, I gave myself one extra stroke per hole. Par 3 turns into 4, 4 turns into 5, etc. Tried to play for "par." It completely changed the way I approached a couple holes. Played the back at +8. Mental, mental, mental. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  3. Happy New Year. I've enjoyed the last one with you all, and am looking forward to the next one with you as well. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  4. Quality over quantity works for me. The people I've enjoyed "foruming" with are still pretty regular here. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  5. That's a tempting offer Rev. Unfortunately, it would require too much road time with the drunk drivers on New Year's Eve. I hope you have a great evening, though. Happy New Year to you and yours. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  6. It's got to be the wicked cool accents we all have, doesn't it? That and the lobstah chowdah! Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  7. As mentioned above, I got to play Bayou with RevKev. Played extra lousy, but had a great time. Had a miserable trip getting there (about 3:30 to make a 1:45 trip), with accidents to avoid and crazy traffic. Rolled in just in time to step up on the tee. I just couldn't get anything going. It only took 17 holes for me to get warmed up, but the 18th was the kind of hole that makes you want to come back. Still, it was a great day and despite his comment in another thread I'm convinced we played into the wind on all 18 holes. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. Boy, I'm not sure even luck would've helped today. It was super ugly. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  9. I'm not too proud to own it.[emoji6] Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  10. Doesn't that make two secret weapons, or is the "pocketpicker" not a secret anymore? Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  11. I enjoyed it. As a lefty, I'm always interested in watching Phil. If I could see another one for free, I'd definitely watch. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  12. Merry Christmas to you all. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  13. Played solo for the first time in probably 20 plus years at a small exec. that I play regularly. Had a bizarre round. *Hit every green on the short par 3's (160 and under). There are 7 of them. Usually I bounce off the fringe or find sand on a few of the smaller greens. Missed every birdie putt, which isn't really a surprise. *Wasn't even close to finding the right club/swing on the longer par 3's (175-200). There are 3 of them. *Hit the worst slice I've ever hit with the G400. *Hit 2 hooks with my hybrid. I've sliced the heck out of shots but I've never hit a hook in my life. *Couldn't get out of the sand, which I had been doing well. *Found water twice, which I hadn't been doing. *40 putts - 4 penalties. *9 pars, 3 bogeys, which means I went +21 ON 6 FREAKIN' HOLES! Everything about it seemed weird. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  14. Welcome from SW Florida. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  15. That's great news. Glad to hear it. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  16. Even at this time of year, I can typically find a round for less than $35 including cart. Add some pretty inexpensive clubs (I bought my son some brand new Wilson DI-9's at a yard sale for 15 bucks) and you can play a couple times a month for a lot less than many people spend going to the movies.

  17. I'll second that. Even going alone, you can probably find something that helps you in your situation. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  18. Enjoy your time in Myrtle Beach. My brother has lived there for 10 years and likes it very much. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  19. My exact reaction. Every time I sandblast something, I'm reminded of how pretty bare metal is. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  20. Interesting stuff. Thanks, jlukes, for putting it all together. When that stuff is in tweets, I often miss some of it. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  21. Actually, my very first thought was about the face not cracking if you'd hit it in the center. My second was something like "Dude, you've got to stop playing those Pinnacles." I've never seen it happen, although I've hit tons of shots that felt like they must have broken something. I did pop the insert out of an old wooden driver once, but I expect that was fairly common.

  22. I hope it all goes well. It's pretty incredible what they can do with eye surgery now. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  23. Looking forward to it. I've always been a fan of Wilson balls. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  24. Sounds good. I'm on break the 21st through January 2, so once we get by Christmas I can make it work just about any day in that next week. I'm looking forward to it. Sent from my XT1585 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
