Not sure right thread but here goes.
A great friend passed away this weekend at only 74 years old after a 1.5 years of absolute torture where death was a relief for him.
Bad golfer but fantastic human being. Golf was a social event to spend time with the guys and his wife who he was dedicated to.
Now this guy was humble, respectful and honestly liked by everyone. First guy in my life where no one had a negative word for him.
He was born in Virginia did his military stint in Nam earning the Bronze Star with Valor. Obviously I don’t need to go into his heroics. Joined the DEA and was part the South Miami shootouts, helped bring down the Noriega drug cartel. The list of accomplishment & accommodations are numerous. It was supposed to be a small gathering but police and special agents came from Texas, Miami & NY. Including a retired Admiral from Coast Guard who worked with this man.
We lost a friend but the Country lost a great American.
K, said my piece.

Sorry to hear of your loss Rick.  Praying for you and all affected.

In the midst of waiting for the D7s to come in, my coach changed my grip (weaker upper hand placement) and said to get a few hundred swings in before I'm back in for a lesson(Wednesday).  Luckily a couple of my best friends will be in town for day of golf tomorrow.  Nothing says 100 more swings with a new and still strange grip  like 27 holes of July golf

So this doesn't get lost in the myriad of evening posts:  Big Stu is in good shape, his PC is down for a few weeks but will be back soon.  Pretty sure he misses you guys for some reason or another.

Anyone using an app besides The Grint to generate an unofficial handicap? I don't play in any events that would require me to have a sanctioned hdcp, I walk a lot of 9 hole rounds solo so I don't think I could submit for one anyways. It's more just for me to track progress. I used to use a site online that shuttered (I'm spacing out on the name, still on my first coffee of the day) that worked with 9 hole rounds.

Fun golf “simulates” a handicap, I think it’s probably very similar to the Grint. You just enter your scores, it isn’t official, sounds like what you are looking for.

If your concern is 9 hole rounds, the grint works for 9 holes only and will calculate your handicap .

Sand is denser here. Landed in some yesterday, played it like I normally would, picked a little too clean. It ran off the back of the green, but nearly chipped in out of the rough. Saved Par.

Not as bad as I expected. Actually quite enjoyed it. Plays to my style of short game.

 

Played in Bermuda last week and there wasn't Bermuda grass everywhere but I really liked it.  I'm not one who takes much of a divot and having the ball sit up on the grass like it did was awesome.

In the deep rough you may not enjoy it so much, short game from tight Bermuda isn’t really bad. It’s when you get into some deep rough where it becomes a problem
