  1. 2021 - first time under 90, most rounds played in a year, more active in MGS 2022 - looking to do it all again, maybe new PB, few more rounds in the year, continue to improve my presence here in the forums. Maybe add a little humor If anyone asks in addition to my resolution being my ever successful "to make a resolution next year" (100% for the past 3 decades!!!) I am going to add "make a putt" for improving my success level.
  2. My career was all Guard and Reserves so kids never moved but they also didn't know any other military kids and were isolated that way when I deployed. I have lots of friends who were/are Active so no worries venting to this Spy and with many others sporting Veteran badges I am sure you're in good company. Moving can affect kids positively by keeping the focus on adventure and traditional things like your Christmas lights will bridge the gap. As my daughter says brightly when a change happens, ADVENTURE!!!
  3. Option E - convert the entire yard into Bentgrass for an epic putting green leaving enough Kentucky Blue for chipping and pitching... then collect a nominal amount, could be beer, from those who just have to try it. Walked by this property between offsite parking for work and the office while at my previous job that was entirely Bentgrass and maintained well for at least the 4 years I passed by. Last drove by it just a few weeks ago and it still is just as lush. So minimum of 10 year old lawn.
  4. Water feature with bridge and windmill? Asking for a friend
  5. Using hotlinks from an icon perhaps that is intuitive as the thing to click would enable a jump to reviews and the "meat and potatoes" of the information intended for quick access. It would make it simple to jump to those meaningful parts.
  6. Worst part of the cold northeast weather of the Great Lakes region is not getting in miles behind my Clicgear pushcart. I would not have believed my regular 9 hole course I play 4 or 5 times a week is 3 full miles from the parking lot and back a couple hours later. Glad to hear you're taking the healthy way and everyone's comments are right on with focus on where the ball went, thinking about next shot, making club selection while walking and assessing what is next and feeling healthy.
  7. A good year for golf things like maroon Izod shirt, SunTek umbrella and The Club Buddy partly because of the "here's what you bought me for Christmas this year" arrangement that works so well for us and you know what? Every year I get her some fabulous things she really wants!
  8. A couple was Christmas shopping at the mall on Christmas Eve and the mall was packed. As the wife walked through the mall she was surprised to look up and see her husband was nowhere around. She was quite upset because they had a lot to do. Because she was so worried, she called him on her phone to ask him where he was. In a calm voice, the husband said, "Honey, you remember the jewelry store we went into about 5 years ago where you fell in love with that diamond necklace that we could not afford and I told you that I would get it for you one day?" The wife choked up and started to cry and said, "Yes, I remember that jewelry store." He said, "Well, I'm in the club fitters right next to it."
  9. That would ensure he never does lose a yellow ball On a completely separate note , would be interesting to see his WITB next year...
  10. My regular playing partner when missing a straight forward putt says, "The problem here is there's no windmill to putt through."
  11. Carly can help with the anticipation! No, that isn't helping at all
  12. Happy Birthday @CRW !!!
  13. Happy Birthday @tony@CIC and @DawgDaddy!!!
  14. I actually can not hit a driver well anymore, pulled the 8.75* Langert Foiler Driver club out of the bag last year. The Langert played better for me than larger and newer drivers as I could better control ball flight. Tracking my shots I found I was only getting the same distance with the driver as I did with my 10* O'Donnell Triumph Maraging hybrid. Since the O'Donnell is one of a set of 4 (10, 15, 19, 27), I went with playing the hybrids since it made no sense to have two clubs in the bag that do the same thing. Also I actually hit better off the turf than off an elevated tee so I have gone to the short tees and still work my second shot as the longer one on course.
  15. The total disclosure for golf would be possible if on entry the clubs were in a see-thru bag so that the security screeners can verify that contraband beverages are not in one's possession as your pocket contents are searched while passing through the metal detectors. People are looking to get away with as much as possible whenever possible and a golf course is one of those places where smuggling is equal opportunity for even the best law abiding citizens. Only personal moral courage and conviction to supporting the organizations one patronizes guides the individual in reality.
  16. As a numbers guy I would like a set of prime number loft clubs that would be most appealing, something like this (a niche market for sure!)... 7 driver, 11, 17, 23, 29 hybrids, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47 irons, 53, 59 wedges, and let's not forget 89 for those amazing thin shots usually out of greenside bunkers that out distance most other clubs...
  17. I'm in that moment of discovery when realizing that something amazing like this thing that is golf has depths and gems of profound beauty that were missed. That feeling of void with such questions of "where was I" and "why/how did I miss this before." Thankful for an opportunity to learn and understand, and remember the best things, thankful for you fellow Spys who share from mind and heart life is made better in your company
  18. Happy Birthday @Chip Strokes and @THEZIPR23 !!!
  19. Happy Birthday @PMookie !!!
  20. Thank you for this! It is a pleasure to contribute to the forums and testing opportunities and with a life experience of organization and leading people with a whole-team everyone is different and that is what makes us stronger focus, MGS is worth everything put into it because of the focus on One Team and unifying not on ideas but on the intention of making it great. Thank you for all your efforts and this lengthy post that opens new understanding and insight into what makes MGS great. Looking forward to the even better yet to be and thanks for stepping up @GolfSpy_BOS
  21. Oh look, there is a bulb out on one side... better take that back to the workshop
  22. Same thing here. We have a couple inches of snow on the ground that will disappear by Saturday's forecast high of 60 but NWS has a Severe Wind advisory for Saturday afternoon with expected winds of up to 65mph (105kmh). Probably not the right afternoon to hit golf balls into the wind.
  23. 12.02.2021 Today's date in N. American standard MM.DD.YYYY format is a palindrome (same backwards as forward) and ambigram (same upside down as right side up)! You're welcome. Also works for YYYYMMDD 20211202
  24. Das ist der holiday spirit!
