  1. I usually get 30-50 rounds out of one. My hands aren’t very sweaty and the first thing to go is the thumb starts to rip. I wonder what that says about my grip pressure...
  2. .... I have more questions than you have answers....
  3. It may not be a surprise anymore, however, it’s still the coolest opportunity on the forum. Big props to Cobra for keeping this going! Whether or not I get picked, I’ll still have an incredible time joining in with my trash talk! 1. I’m a 4 handicap located in Mankato, Minnesota. 2. To be honest, I currently don’t have any social media accounts, and if that disqualifies me, that is totally okay. However, if selected I will create some accounts. 3. In 8 weeks, I’d expect 32-36 rounds averaging about 4 per week. 4. Current Bag: Wilson Staff C300 9.0° driver Callaway Rogue 3 wood Mizuno MMC- 18 Fli-Hi 2 Iron PING I200 4-W PING Glide 52° and 58° Bettinardi Armlock 5.

  4. Played really well again today, ended up with a 72, my irons weren’t *quite* as sharp today and both of my birdies were chip-ins. Nothing to complain about, and it’s just nice to be playing golf decently again.
  5. I mean, you could add someone like Spieth to list as well. It’s just extremely difficult to maintain that level of excellence over a longer period of time. As we look at people who fell off the “peak”, being a short hitter seems to be a commonality. For these guys it’s a combination of the game evolving to cater to bomb and gouge style, and the need to have such strong short games and putting. Without above average length, you’re kinda behind the 8-ball after every tee shot.
  6. Congrats MPR!! I think we’d be hard pressed to find anyone with a higher quality per post ratio!!
  7. I broke 70 for the first time today, so I played really well. Shot 69 with 6 birdies, so it could’ve been better yet. Putter was on fire as were the irons. Driver not so much, but my misses were still manageable. 3/14 fairways 10/18 greens 22 putts
  8. After rain is 100% okay, during rain is 100% not. If not getting paid to play in the rain, I’m not going to.
  9. I have two from today, first was a 30 yard chip and run that got lucky enough to hit the pin and go in. The second was a 250 yard 3 wood into a par 5 that I stuck to 6 feet. That probably would have been my best shot had I made the putt...
  10. After the way I played today, I’d probably score better with just my putter than trying to use any of my 13 other clubs...
  11. I don’t personally have any experience, but I will say that I’m not a believer in these “one size fits all” miracle swing techniques. The golf swing is an athletic motion, and while certain swing positions help with consistency, there are millions of ways to get to those positions, not just one. I’m not saying it doesn’t work for some people, I’m sure it does, I just don’t think the everyone in the general golfing public should start using it.
  12. I’ve played 5 rounds so far this year, and I’ve birdied, 6 out of the 18 I need. So far, so good. I *think* I should get to 13-15 rather soon, but there are about 3 holes that are *really* going to be challenge for me.
  13. I played really solidly today. Ended up with a 37-35-72. I didn’t do anything super special, just kept the ball (mostly) in play off the tee, and chipped and putted well. Overall, about as stress free and enjoyable of a round as I’ve ever played.
  14. I prefer playing in the mornings before the courses fill up with players there for a “drunken good time”.

    I know, it’s been so hard for me not to respond to lot of these posts. But I’m biting my tongue. I just tell myself that I’m not gonna change anyone’s mind who does disagree with me, and arguing about it would is just a waste of my time. But it’s still been hard not to chime in.
