I have a pair of special blue lens sunglasses that make everything white glow and stand out when looking for a lost ball. They work great. I've never worn them to try to see a ball in flight, but they will help you find your ball on the ground.

This sounds like something i need for finding balls in general. I lose too many balls that are not that far off.

The community where we bought our winter place in Florida has 27 holes. I've always had an aversion to water on the course, maybe I'll overcome it by the time winter is over. IMG_5816.thumb.JPG.eacd41c2a7e55d92cc5237c21b0af1ad.JPG

Has anyone checked out the tester thread for the TSi drivers?  I know it’s early, but the amount of “fly-by-night” applicants is really out of control already.  5 pages, and 80-90% it’s one of their first posts.  
Sorting through all that once it’s time to select must be a real pain in the arse.

I know some people took issue with it, but I really thought the “Recruit” thing was a good move.  I was one of the “fly-by-nighters” and the Recruit thing made me dive in...once I did I got seriously hooked.

Foz, we ended up buying in Kings Point , a gated community just west of Sun City Center (just up from 275/75) . It was an exasperating experience. We looked from Taron Springs/Clearwater all the way south to just shy of Venice. The inventory was so slim and moved so fast it was incredible..

That thread was good for a chuckle this morning. Between the posters who didn't provide any of the relevant info requested, or the ones who are most definitely NOT in areas that are conducive to Nov/Dec golf, I think the mods will have maybe 20 legit responses to consider. 🤣

My wife and I just finished the Netflix Longmire series and really enjoyed it.  Prior to that we watched The Crown and found that series very well written/acted too.  We had started watching Yellowstone after The Crown, but the pilot started out a bit bloody/gory so we started Longmire.  Several have told us to give Yellowstone another try; that it isn't too blood & guts and they really liked it.  Our younger neighbors said to give The Office a try and we did, but it just never clicked for us... probably an age thing.

Anyway, we're in the market for a good drama series and welcome any suggestions.  

I watched Blacklist a year, or so, ago. Season 7 just dropped recently and I flew through it. James Spader's character is great, IMO. My wife and I watched Longmire and really enjoyed it, so we may have similar tastes?

Only if certain actors are include in the commercial. It would be like the google and amazon commercials where the key words that trigger the devices are used but home devices don’t respond. Whenever your voice is heard, the mute, change channel, and fast
Forward buttons don’t work.

We just watched the first two episodes of Blacklist - so far so good.  We tried Lucifer, but it just didn't work for us.

Yessir! I cant wait to get my hands on one of these tr21 fairway woods! Have you been entering these too?

I have, most of them anyway.  Bummed when I don’t win given the pretty good odds, but I can’t complain too much after getting the TR20’ driver via MGS testing.

Btw, @PrestonAtHonma is extremely supportive of us and would definitely help you out if you wanted to reach out and discuss your game and your options. He extended the offer to another spy that won earlier in the giveaway.

Congrats!
