  1. To be completely honest, it carried about 230 yards landed on a downslope and rolled 100 yards. It hasn’t rained here in 3 weeks and everything is rock hard.
  2. Shot a really “meh” 77. Nothing was really sharp, irons were shaky, putter was cold, and chipping was just okay. Only redeeming thing were my drives that included a 330 yard bomb that set up a birdie on the #1 handicap hole.
  3. Yeah, it’s not a good night when 2 players are stretchered off. Obviously these are the risks of football, but it seems unreasonably excessive.
  4. ... And exactly what they should have done. (Although I still question ever signing him.)
  5. Been too long since I’ve had something to post here... I’d have to say my best shot today was a good sand save to 2 feet on the 14th when my round really could have gotten away from me. It probably wasn’t the best shot I hit, but it was one that mattered the most as far as score went.
  6. UPDATE!! It’s been a tough stretch for me getting in golf so I apologize for not updating y’all more frequently, but I didn’t want to falsify anything. I’ve only had 4 rounds in the last 2 month which were, 81, 80, 76, 74. All of which were carried by superb iron play. I’ve really been struggling with the putter recently, however I am putting on a different breed of grass than I traditionally play on. Is that the difference? I think it matters some, but I don’t think it’s the whole story. I’ve really been unable to get the ball started on my intended line, and my confidence from 3-4 feet has been reduced to zero. As of right now, my sample size is still fairly small, so before I go running off to Golf Galaxy to get a new putter, I’m gonna stick it out for a while, especially knowing what my Betti can do when it’s rolling the ball well. I should be playing more in the coming weeks, so keep an eye out for another update, hopefully with more info.
  7. 35-39-74 10/14 fir 14/18 gir 33 putts I’ve only played maybe 4 rounds in the past 3 months, and it really showed today on the green. Struck the ball exceptionally well with the irons, but missed a LOT of good birdie chances. I was -1 after 3 when I really should have been -4. Missed a 5 footer for birdie on 1 and 3 and a 10 footer for eagle on 2. Solid day overall though, lots to build on.
  8. I definitely believe seeing the distance is a skill associated with the game. What I’ve found is that playing a course I know well is pretty easy without a DMD. Playing courses that I’ve never played without one is almost impossible. My depth perception is linked to my memory of other shots and distances I had on course. If you just give me barren land with a pin, with no recognizable landmarks, it’s hopeless. That said, the challenge of golf is just hitting the shot, not getting the yardage. The yardage is a measurement that should be available at all times, to see who can actually execute shots.
  9. WOW!! What a game! Those Saints totally deserved it after that roughy the kicker call!

  11. @Berg Ryman, sorry, meant to accept that, I like it a lot. I’d also do Guice for Jordan Howard if you want.
  12. Well, that sucks, but seriously a huge CONGRATULATIONS to @blackngold_blood, you’ve been a formidable opponent all year, and it’s been a lot of fun battling with y’all! I thought I had a chance with Rory winning, but it shows the depth needed to win!
  13. Good luck next weekend guys, looks like @GolfSpy Stroker has the advantage with 3 players starting instead of 2. Oops, looks like BNG did too. Oh, and f****** Kevin Tway finishing 31.
  14. Seeing as any of the dates work fine for me, I’m not gonna vote, so I don’t needlessly skew the results away from what the group needs.
  15. Wow, I can’t believe this challenge is over. I just went back and read over all of the reviews, and they were all magnificent. The mods picked 5 great competitors, and y’all did a wonderful job, not just for the forum, but for Cobra and Arccos as well. I’m sad I missed the fun of the last couple weeks, but even as a reader, I really enjoyed this challenge.
