    I'll throw in a bad one for you guys.

    What's the difference between an oral thermometer and an anal thermometer?

  2. 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. Dream Set: (I’d see if I could get a fitting first, but if not, I’d go with this.)

    Cobra SZ 9.0° Yellow, Fujikura Atmos Black 60 TS Stiff

    Cobra SZ 3 wood Yellow, Fujikura Atmos Blue 70 TS stiff

    Cobra SZ 3 hybrid Yellow, PX Catalyst 80 stiff

  3. 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.

  4. 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... 🙄

  5. 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.

  6. For me my (probably not biggest but certainly most memorable) was a 49 front and 31 back. For the front 9 I was paired up with an obnoxious group of strangers that I let get under my skin, and after they left after 9 holes, I was so relaxed that I didn’t even realize how well I was playing.


  7. Got out for my first round in a while now that the golfing ban has been lifted. Ended up shooting a 76, so not too bad. Iron game needs a lot of work though, really saved my score around the greens.

  8. I play alone probably 75% of the time, and I love it. Around here, the golf courses (usually) aren’t very busy, and I can get around in under 3 hours. And, since the courses are so empty, it is a quiet peaceful environment. For me, there is nothing more therapeutic than spending hours outside alone. As @ZenGolfer said, it can be a meditative experience, and a calming escape from daily life. 

    On the days courses are busier, since I can’t play a quick round, I love being paired up with people. Meeting new, interesting people is always fun.

    Basically, in case you can’t tell, I like golf. 🙂
