    Practice swings

    I didn't forever and I'm at a place in my game where I understand what's happening in my swing so I take one to feel what I'm working on at the moment. Sent from my VS988 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    Weed & sons

    I've done almost every drug you can think of, I smoked weed as a youngster as well. I'm not in the group that thinks it's bad but it isn't for kids of that age period. They're brain is still developing.(I read this somewhere, it's a fact but it's been awhile) It's a tough spot to be in but it IS illegal for him at that age. You might tell him that. I attribute none of my previous addictions to smoking when I was young, I was an addict plain and simple. I had a surgery when I was a kid(16) and got over prescribed opiates which led to the bulk of my problems. In my intro I left a lot of details out about my addiction due to this being a golf forum but since we're here.... Addiction is a sensitive subject please treat it with care everyone and understand that everyone is different in how they get there and how they handle it. Brain altering drugs of ANY kind at that age can be dangerous. Even if he doesn't get addicted to other drugs it can have lifelong effects on him. Sounds like your a good dad, my parents never addressed my problems as a kid which could have had the worst effect of all on me, I had to approach them some ten years later to tell them what was going on. Stay involved and communication is always important. Sent from my VS988 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    A career in golf?

    My wife and I are talking about the future and I don't think I can brew forever. I love it but it's very hard on me physically. I'm wondering if anybody has made a leap into the golfing industry? I've reached out to a guy who runs the course in my hometown and am supposed to meet and talk about the possibility of working there come spring but doesn't sound too promising. Does anybody have any advice? I'm sure I will end up being a greenskeeper if I pursue this which will be fine but would like to explore any and all opportunities. I've considered taking the maltby golf fitting and club building courses just to have something on my resume and to learn a little about club building. Any help is much appreciated.

    Is PAR more of a problem than just shooting it?

    3 things: That's what makes golf golf. The nerves we suffer standing over a 6 footer for par or birdie. It adds pressure to the situation. It's what separates the weak from the strong. It's part of EVERYTHING in golf, it's why it's an extremely difficult game. It's why the pros are so good and were not... the mental toughness. That being said I get your reasoning, for us golfers we shouldn't think like this, an example I had recently during a round is good for this thread. I made an incredible eagle on a tough par 5 on my course, I then carded a 6 on the final par 3. It was devastating! I looked at it like a wiped out my eagle score(which I did). Now if I'd made a 6 on the par 5 and a 3 on the par 3 I wouldn't have felt as bad as I did...weird when you think of it like that, same strokes but it completely changed everything in the round. This thread made me think of something kind of fun, what if you had a course with NO pars on any hole but rather just a final par. Each hole was no specific length either, just a tee box, fairway, and a green. How would that change someone's mentality when approaching a course? It's hard to picture I know but is actually not a bad idea the more I sit here and type.
  7. I'm never one who cares about scoring, I like an exciting close finish. That being said I do like them to be tested, but I realize they can't do this every tournament or the majors wouldn't be as "major" Sent from my VS988 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

    Why have so many left this great game?

    I'll add from a "young" man's perspective. I take this game on as a sport not a social thing. There are times, usually when I'm having a bad round, that I ask myself what's the point? I don't have the time to get better which infuriates me. I don't see a light at the end of the tunnel. I'm also starting to have back problems already from work and golf. I would like to play forever but why? I want to be scratch, then what? Unless my son gets into the sport I don't see me playing it forever. All that coupled with I'm in a lower ish income and always will be makes golf not seem like a forever sport. Sent from my VS988 using MyGolfSpy mobile app

  11. It was a slow day at work and I decided to finally take our empty cans to the recycling center. We can our beer and sometimes end up with a bunch of crushed cans or cans that weren't filled to the proper weight level to sell, so we dump them and recycle the cans. They have been building up and we had about 3 big trash cans full, I decided to see if I could make a little coin on them so I took them to the metal recycling place to sell them. This place gets all types of people that come in here selling whatever they can, there tends to be a lot of meth addicts selling copper, wiring, cans and anything else they can get a hold of. One particular person was in front of me while I was waiting in my truck, he had two big suitcases filled with wiring, so much wiring he looked like an electrician. It was actually well organized and rolled up nice and neat, I was surprised how much he fit in his bags. Anyways, I watched him and said, poor guy, he is sitting here thinking about all the drugs he can buy for whatever amount of money they give him, he already has it spent and is picturing every last detail in his head. Jump back to me in my truck..... I'm thinking, if I can get at least $15 for these cans I can buy a small bucket of range balls and a 3 pack of truvis, I'm picturing myself swinging on the range as I sit here.... I'm a golf junkie

    Any Truvis Collectors here?

    I would love to collect these but it sounds like a very expensive collection. Expensive enough just to play them.
  15. You can still find fujikura motore f3 on eBay for around $50 for a new one. I have that shaft and enjoy it. Mid launch mid spin with low torque. It also depends on how low torque you want, hard to find a higher launching shaft and low torque without say an AD-DI. The motore is 3.1 torque I believe. Also, grafalloy pro launch blue I think is high launch low torque. Sent from my VS988 using MyGolfSpy mobile app
