  1. I would just like to add.........wait for it, wait for it! [emoji16]. This has been a great posting. Really enjoyed reading all the feedback. Good on you tchat07 Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  2. My first thought after reading the title of this blog is “do you boo”. A lot of us have been quilty of jumping on board with the latest and greatest influenced solely by marketing. Be your own brand to me means to play how and what you feel. If your brand is to buy new clubs every year then do you. If your brand is to play with Dad’s 1970 Mcgregor Blades then again do you.

  3. You can judge a Golf Course’s commitment to excellence by the quality of the parking lot. If an organization doesn’t do the little things well they probably don’t pay attention to the big ones. If the parking lot is clean and well organized....... if the attendants greet you with a smile and a willingness to help........... if directions to the bag drop and club house are well placed....... then more often than not the Golf Course itself will not disappoint. Then of course there are those hidden gems located off the beaten path. Usually these fall in the Muni category and the overall golf experience rivals that of the most exclusive private clubs. I’ve played this course twice. The experience was like no other! https://youtu.be/IbRFfXOeB0w Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  4. The number one reason I quit is slow play. I’ve quit more times than I care to mention when the pace slows to a crawl. Before quitting I do attempt to skip holes when possible. I’ve also quit because of extreme weather; above 95 and below freezing. If I’m totally honest I’ve also walked off the golf course when after a few holes my heart just wasn’t in it. Sadly it happens from time to time and is rarely related to quality of play. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  5. Is anyone out there using CBD for Arthritis or any other pain management? If so, could you describe your experience as it relates to your quality of life and of course your golf game???? Thanks Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. In my humble opinion it’s not the ability to score low that separates average Joe Scratch from a Tour Pro it’s the Pro’s ability to score low consistently over a tournament and season. Most accomplished golfers can have a singular excellent round when all the stars align. The problem is these average guys are as likely to shoot 88 as they are 68. Professionals just don’t have that huge swing in scoring. The other thing I’ve noticed is a Pro’s scoring within a round is often littered with birdies. They do have bad holes as well but the amount of birdies routinely offsets the occasional bogey or double bogey. We all have a level of potential within us. Your potential changes over a life time based on health, fitness, life’s priorities and resources. Most (not all) professional golfers come from affluent backgrounds. From a very early age they’ve had great coaching, great equipment and the financial backing to maximize their abilities. As they develop, Golf in their lives and the resources that develop their skills grow larger. Average Joe Scratch maybe very accomplished but often he/she has other responsibilities that take precedent over Golf. While they may posses the talent/potential to score low they just don’t have all the other tangibles and intangibles to do so consistently over a four round tournament or competitive Golf season. If LeBron James were to play in my church basketball league he would probably score 80 points. If Brooks K were to play a round of Golf with my weekend group he would most likely shoot in the mid to low 60s but he is not going to shoot in the low 50s. I guess my point here is the true separation between a Touring Pro and Average Joe Scratch is not an individual shot or round, more so, it’s the ability to consistently score within a competitive range.

  7. I did write three but that was a mistake. It was a par Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  8. This was just a quick search without making phone calls. Prices good as of right this moment. For these three items the cost is $25. Tees bought in bulk placed in baggies are cheap cheap. A custom ball mark can be minted and produced out of Korea for about $1 each. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  9. DC is an expensive market and a little atypical when compared to the rest of the US. However, I’ve put on these events as well and have always squeezed the most out of our budget. Granted I have connections in Korea and China that help tremendously. Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
  10. You would be surprised how little food actually costs when you buy in bulk. $5 will get you two meats, chips and a couple cookies. Obviously if you are hiring a cater the cost is three or four times that number per plate. It’s been my experience putting leadership on the grill will not only fill your patrons bellies but will also demonstrate your organizations servant heart. I’ve run events in which we have fed up to 4000 in an afternoon. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  11. Not sure of your market but I’ve sourced that combination in Hawaii, San Antonio and Savannah. The numbers are real numbers based on my experience. I sourced: Adidas pull string shoulder bags for $12 each directly from overseas vendor Bridgestone golf ball sleeve $6 per Hats multiple vendor gifted Ball markers from Korean connection $1 each Tees and other little bits nominal cost. The overall cost is not affected by region or location. You just have to be creative. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. Golf Tournaments can be a great way to fellowship and raise money for whatever cause burns in your soul. Typically the Golf Course gets about 40% of the entry fee. The rest goes towards tournament operations. So for example; if it cost $125 per person to play in a tournament, depending of the golf course, about $75 a person goes towards the tournament operations. It cost approximately $5 per head to feed a Golfer (bought in bulk excluding free alcohol). Under this example I would estimate the tournament alone contributes around $60 a head towards the chosen cause. If you have 50 golfers that’s a profit of $3000 after all expenses. If you sell out all 18 holes to sponsors at $500 a hole now you have raised a grand total of $12,000.00. Capital reinvestment is paramount to ensure successful events year after year. So if you are confident your tournament will be an annual event then why wouldn’t you budget for nice swag for every participant. Best I ever received was a Nike shoulder bag that can double as a golf shoe bag. In the bag was a golf hat, sleeve of balls, ball marker and bag of tees. Total cost of the bag and contents $25 or total cost of approximately $1250.00. A small price to pay to ensure a successful annual event and most importantly to thank those who participated.

  14. Almost October in SC, 98 degrees, and this!!!!!$ Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  15. I’ve worked as a volunteer at a number of PGA and LPGA events. The greatest players in the world who’s livelihood depends on their performance on the golf course almost all without exception use the old standard wooden tee. As a matter of fact I stood as a crowd control marshal on a par three for five straight days and guess what........ most of those guys rummaged around the ground looking for an old broken tee to use. I would think if a golf tee aided in performance wouldn’t these guys and gals use them? Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy
