  1. Haven't done that, but I can tell you there are some beautiful courses in Naples. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  2. Congratulations, guys. Can't wait to hear what you all have to say about the new gear. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  3. Outstanding. I need someone to tell me I can only go 50%. I probably would be more consistent. [emoji6] Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  4. Last thing I do before my takeaway. It's a combination relaxation / rhythm thing. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  5. Tier 1: Phil Mickelson Tier 2: Luis Oosthuizen Tier 3: Kiradech Aphibarnrat Tier 4: Patton Kizzire Tier 5: Dylan Frittelli Winning Score: -9 Low Am: +3
  6. You nailed it. I had to stew on it a little bit, but this is actually the fundamental issue for me. I'm never going to be a competitive golfer, so to me the game is about the challenge and the fun. I almost always choose the challenge of making the shot over the challenge of scoring lower, and ultimately really want to do both. What I need, more than anything else probably, is to change my perspective on what kind of fun I'm going to have.
  7. I can't follow the ball most of the time when I'm playing live. I sure as heck can't see it on television. Not only that, but they tend to show such a tight shot of the lie, that I can't get any perspective of where it is in relation to the tee or the green. I'll take all I can get!
  8. I'm with that. In fact, in the small group I play with, I'm the only one who pays any attention to handicap. I've been known to encourage the others to position their golf balls so they have a better lie on occasion. I just want them to have fun and feel good about their rounds. Won't be any fun for me if they get frustrated and stop playing. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  9. Well, I always tell the kids at school that sometimes the truth hurts, but it's still the truth. Don't want it, don't ask. I'm usually pretty good with my 56* wedge, as long as the lie isn't too thin. When it is, I grab my 7 iron or some other club, then stick it back in the bag, determined to hit the wedge, no matter what. I know I am hitting a lower percentage shot but I do it anyway. Just being stubborn! You all have definitely made me think even more, though. I'm going to make a concerted effort to think about how to get the best score I can, and not about playing the shot tha
  10. It goes so fast... My grandson is 5 and will probably turn 12 in a couple of days. Enjoy it while you still can. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  11. That's the funniest thing I've read today. Outstanding response. [emoji23] Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  12. Probably. My memory for that kind of thing isn't always great. I would think we'd see a lot more of it. Maybe I just missed it. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  13. I wasn't a marketing major in college, but this is exactly what I returned to this thread to say. I hate marketing in general and never look for logic in it.
  14. I've wondered why nobody had done this before. It seems like a great idea for the manufacturer.
  15. You do have to watch for this. I use 18 Birdies to score my rounds and for the GPS, and Diablo Golf for my actual handicap. 18 Birdies will track your handicap, and it was off from my Diablo handicap by almost 13 strokes. It took me a while to do some calculations, but I finally discovered that 18 Birdies had the incorrect rating/slope for the course that I play most (which has a very similar name to a much more difficult course about an hour away), which was causing the handicap calculation they do to be incorrect. I contacted them, and they had me email a picture of the scorecard. They
  16. That's a big, big if. I still haven't found a hybrid that I can hit worth anything. Easier said than done, like so many things on golf. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  17. Hadn't thought of fishing during a round, but we've had a lot of fun watching the fish and the gators. Fishing would give something to do during slow play. Nice thought. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  18. That's what I had been told. We leave the black racers alone for that very reason. I don't like snakes at all, but if they keep the rattlesnakes away, we can coexist. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  19. I got to thinking earlier today about my huge handicap and how I could manage to lower it. Obviously lessons and practice would help, but there's one thing I could stop doing that I know would shave 6-7 strokes (maybe even more) off almost every round I play. I could stop being stubborn. I'm constantly trying to hit the "right" shot, not trying to score. I played this past weekend with a buddy who pulled his putter out of the bag several times when he was a good distance off the green. Everything is super dry, the ground is hard, the grass is burnt. I swear he putted from 50 yards
  20. Ahh, my first gun. When I started hunting, my dad got me a 410 and some slugs. As good as a rifle in the brush. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  21. I kinda got stuck on the 9mm thing. I completely agree with the not wanting it to eat the Cardinal eggs. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  22. I run both the MGS app and tapatalk (which is where I found MGS in the first place.) Tapatalk does send me notifications if someone likes or quotes my posts. I use tha MGS app for everything else. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  23. Go easy on the black racer. The word down this way is they keep the venomous snakes away. As in, black racers = no rattlesnakes. Don't know for sure that it's true, but I've heard it many times. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  24. Ain't it the truth. I look at stuff all the time and think about how good it looks on somebody else. I know if I stuffed my lard butt into it, it would look like a sausage casing. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
  25. Very nice looking irons (and dog.) Good for you. Sent from my XT1585 using Tapatalk
