Some of you might get a kick out of this. I was surfing through the different threads on here and thought I had pressed on the community button. Anyways my wife popped in about the exact same time the

If my second daughter wasn't born in 2020 and I wouldn't have been able to work from home and be here for first 6 months of life so far... I would probably be more upset with how this year has gone LOL Gotta focus on the positives!

Hey, probably unnecessary, but I want to extend a quick apology and explanation to the community. I've been a lot less active for the past couple of weeks than I was for the bulk of the summer, and I want to make sure I don't give anyone the impression I took my test Honma driver and ran.
I'm assigned to USSTRATCOM, and no phones are allow in the building (classified stuff going on) and a lot of websites are firewalled from the work computer, including MGS.  Over the summer i was temporarily assigned to a training course that went 100% online due to COVID, so i got to spend a lot of time at home and was then able to get on the forums a ton.  With no access during the day, I get home to 3 little kids and those "demands" and suddenly I am dead tired and i haven't gotten on here.  
Sorry about that.  I'm still around, still lurking, still posting a little bit, and still loving the community, and I'll step my game up.  My club championship is this Saturday, after which i launch my offseason training plans that I'll document here.
Again, maybe an unnecessary post, but i REALLY don't want to risk the impression that I took a test club and ran.
Oh, and [mention=85402]B.Boston[/mention] congrats on the Cobra Connect Challenge win...eases the sting of that .1 fantasy "beatdown"!  

Ha! Nothing will ease the sting of that other than a top seed finish and playoff bye!

Life gets busy... I don’t think anyone can fault you for that. As a father of three myself there’s nights where I’m dozing off on the couch almost as soon as they are all asleep!

Enjoy the tourny this weekend!!

Think I’m going to ditch the tech stuff.  Using that swing radar today, I found out that if I swing with my fade swing I am 7mph faster than with normal swing...

I used to play fades... then I wanted to get better.  Come to think of it, I haven’t gotten any better and all I do is work on my swing.  Playing fades I just used a few four letter words when I over faded a fade... now I use some PG four letter words, but way more often.

What to do....

Yeah, played a fade for a season too.  The worst was getting paired with a random who thought he was complementing me when he said “man, you’ve really learned how to play that slice.”  Not what you want to hear...

Oh man. I had a few that leaned toward slice today. Sometimes saying “I over-cut it” just doesn’t apply.

Hey, if it was good enough for Jack, Lee, Tiger, DJ, Hogan.... 

I thoroughly Enjoy watching a natural draw player try to hit a fade... it’s amazing.  Same for a “slicer” trying time hit a draw.

I think I’ve hit a point in my life that I need to start restoring a car.  On the hunt for something out of the ordinary.  Some sort of wagon I think. 🤔

Ive always liked the 64 Buick’s...

I'm always on the lookout for a 71+ Super Beetle to start working on and maybe turn into a Baja.

I have had that same itch.... I think it would be a '64 Rambler for some reason.... I need to make lots of room in the garage before getting started on the hunt.
