  1. I am always down to play, if needed, I can always set something up here in Delaware too...cricket, cricket
  2. There are a few decent videos on YouTube to help you with this project. Can't wait to see how the experience goes for ya
  3. After giving this some thought, I mean some real thought, I think I would set the goal of shooting a 69 or better. I feel that I am close so now it's time to really put a plan in place. The first thing I plan on doing is working on my putting. This is my Achilles heel. I plan on spending time on my putting mat working on my stroke and aim. This will improve my confidence while on the green. I need to change my mindset as well while putting. Honestly, anything outside of about 6 feet, I tend to think is an automatic two putt. This needs to change. The next thing I plan on working on is my chipping and pitching. I feel like I'm pretty decent here but I want to make sure anything just off the green is within about a 5 foot range. My iron play is pretty good as well as my woods, not saying I can't improve there but I will see the biggest bang for my buck in the short game. So, bring on the 2022 season (once all the snow is gone)!
  4. I agree, I can't believe I missed the new Cobra King Tec hybrid release a few months back. But, this is always a fun time of year, I like seeing what every company comes up with and what new idea will take the market by storm.
  5. Reading this post leads me to wonder..... At what temperature do you call it and say it's too cold? I will play into the low 40's but usually don't go below that too often, how about you all?
  6. I agree with @cnosil. Even the weight of the clubs. You may be swinging one faster than the other. Get on a launch monitor and check out the data side by side.
  7. I put on a winter base layer (underarmour type shirt), a long sleeve and then a nice 3/4 zip pullover. I typically don't like too many layers because it really impedes the swing. The main thing I do differently though is walk. That way I am constantly moving and often times I may take a layer off. Full disclosure, I typically run hot anyway and living in Delaware we don't get days that are too bad, I will play in temps in the low 40's, but probably not go below that unless there is a lot of sun and no wind.
  8. I plan on it, we are playing Pebble two times so I'm sure if I forget to take pics the first round I will be able to grab some the second time around. Might throw in a video of the 7th hole.
  9. Congrats on the new position! Looking forward to this upcoming year.
  10. I know! I am still in shock. However I still feel guilty about this somehow. Don't get me wrong, I am super appreciative about the gift. I guess I just don't know how to feel since I have never received a gift of this magnitude before.
  11. So I have a crazy update to this story! After letting my buddy know I was not going to make the trip to Pebble because I was choosing my family over everything else, he politely acknowledged it and said he fully understood. After a month or two, my wife kept telling me she wishes I would have gone on the trip since she knew it was a bucket list trip for me. Well...he had someone back out of the trip and asked me again and after a very long extensive talk with my wife, I decided to go. I called Pebble, put the deposit down and started to get really excited that I was ACTUALLY going to go to Pebble Beach!!!!!! I had a plan, I would work my second job (at my golf course) longer into the off (season than I usually do) and all the money from that would go towards the trip hoping to still be able to take my family someplace nice this year as well. It will be tough, but doable. This past weekend, my buddy and his wife come over and he hands me a card. Inside the card is a gift card to Pebble Beach for the amount of our trip. He tells me he knows how important family is to me and he didn't want me to worry about taking away from them to golf with him. I told him I could not accept it, and that I could handle it, but he insisted. He told me how important it was for him that I come on the trip and they really wanted to do this for us. Now full disclosure, he makes a ton more than I do as a teacher. Hell, ONE of his bonus checks is more than I make in a year. That being said, I still didn't know what to say. I felt awkward, because I fully believe in your work for what you get, if you can't afford to go...then you just don't go. I just don't know how to handle such a generous gift. If I had the money I would do the same thing and not think twice, however when you are on the receiving end I guess it's different.
  12. I carry 4. My PW, Gap, 52 and 56. I recently bought the gap wedge due to a hole in my distances. I went by full swing distances which are as follows: PW-135 yards Gap-125 52-115 56 100 I just found that I had a massive hole in my set between 135-115 yards. I didn't like changing my swing of the PW to try to baby a shot at say 127 yards, or having to really stand on my 52 to get it to maybe go 120, so I had to buy the Gap wedge to fill the need. I will say, it is my LEAST used club in the bag.
  13. I would opt for the roll of lead tape and not the precut pieces. A roll you can contour the pieces better and smooth them to conform to the bottom of the driver. Easy to put on and take off.
  14. So this is an interesting topic and I am definitely intrigued. I am retiring in five years and need another source of income, something in the golf world preferably. With this concept of no employees and open 24 hours, how do you all plan on explaining how to operate the system to get it up and running for each group? I also saw where members can invite guests, what is to stop me being a member and giving my buddy the door code when ever he wants it? Lastly, if it is a BYOB, who is liable if someone leaves this facility and causes an accident? Just a few preliminary questions.
