I decided since I am more than likely to fully retire I have went back to full Hippie Stu mode. John Smalls can testify to that. One of the nosy old farts at the club asked me yesterday if my barber was on strike? Naaw I told him he died of Covid. He looked shocked and several laughed because they knew it was me being me. He asked really? I told him naah I was growing it back out so nosy old farts like him could ask stupid questions. Never thought about it before but honestly I am relishing being old and retired and not giving two hoots.

Yup, it’s great isn’t it! Old and Cranky fits me well. Obviously you’re going to slide into retirement smoothly

Always good getting to see you when we make it down to the Myrtle Beach area!  Looks like you’re healing up well and not too far away from getting back to normal.  Hate we couldn’t get back up for another round before we left.  Thanks for the recommendations though.  Blackmoor is one of my favorites now!!!  Hope the pup heals up soon  

Guys if you’re on the SC coast go see Stu!  Or at least get course recommendations from him and then go see him.  

hey we had a blast didn't we? Played the shootout Saturday Had 25 teams. I played pretty decent after my partners got me from pushing the issue too much. Rusty putted pretty well ran in 4 birdies and hung one on the lip for Eagle on #5. I darn near had 2 hole outs with the 7 iron from 135. The management put us right behind the cheat bunch and we kept eyes on them and they knew. No -14 from them this week they shot -4. I think -10 won it and we were at 8 tied with 5 other teams for 3rd. Evaluating my own game I figured on my own ball if I did not give out I could shot maybe 80 or a little better. Was about as short with the driver as I was with you but never missed a fairway. Did get tired and tight the last 4 holes. But I am improving glad you somewhat talked me into dragging Rusty out of his time out period.

A few side by side pics with the TS2 3 wood that is going against for a spot in the bag.

A little update on the usage of the Honma 4 wood. 

Bellow was my first shot with it Friday. 

Screenshot_20201025-211308.jpg.38eab73d95f27017ebe8f814dfca0f9c.jpg

Today's few shots, I felt that if I did my part and hit with solid contact, the club performed well. 

I'm impressed with how easy it was to swing the club, and the mostly straight shots. 

That first shot off the rough was absolutely dead on into the front part of the green. 

Screenshot_20201025-212011.jpg.3144230779164a967bf278807993d0ca.jpg

The club looks very nice at address, I do feel that the face looks a bit closed at address, but I cannot deny, I've been hitting it better than my previous 3 wood. 

20201025_123032.jpg.ed04ed8f2b311f09321022cd94bc5d43.jpg

Another big shot from the fairway. 

Screenshot_20201025-211106.jpg.36c8f8b9f67a615bf6b3d59b291d4b73.jpg

Not bad from the deep rough. 

Screenshot_20201025-211130.jpg.c8ac2673ad9cdb40d3b119879eac7e49.jpg

Another very clean contact shot.

Overall it was a great day.

It has probably changed since you played it. I forgot the hole number but one of the holes has changed from a Par4 to a Par 3. They widened Hwy 707 and off the old tee as a par 4 you would be hitting directly head on into traffic. In fact the way the idiots drive around here I would not want to even stand on that tee.

I guess the driving habits haven’t changed in all these years!!
I only played Blackmoor 2-3 times so all I remember is I liked it.
I can remember where I played 20 years ago but can’t remember where I played Friday .

I came home today and noticed that an Arccos sensor was missing. I had taken them out of my clubs when I had them regripped and had placed them on my entertainment center so I could keep them organized. Well...I guess one of them somehow ended up in the laundry and got washed. Dead. 

I went to order another one and saw Arccos has a discount for existing members and tried entering the code and got an error message. I went back over the code again, didn't work. Tried clearing it out and must have accidentally hit the place order button for full price. 

Now I have an email in with the starter@Arccos to see if they'll either be able to give me the discount or cancel the order. I don't mind paying full price, but I ordered 3 and at $7 savings each I kinda want to save that money. Their customer service is top notch and I have no doubts they'll come through for me. 

I've got to give a shout out to Arccos customer service, they are awesome! They got back to me today and were willing to give me the discount and refunded the difference, plus the sensors shipped out today.

Just did 10 minutes worth of swinging like a mad man.  I feel like I can skull a 52° wedge over the Chesapeake Bay right now.

Funny you say that.  I went to the grocery store yesterday and they were having a sale on a big jug of it.  Told the wife I needed some to get ripped... she laughed and said, “keep walking”... 😂

FedEx has some of the worst routing choices ever. I ordered something from Golf Discount which is 30 minutes from my house. So the order went from Golf Discount, to Seattle hub, then to Portland, and then will come back to the same Seattle hub, and then to local hub in my area, and then will be delivered.

New swing “thought”...

Swing like Adam Scott.

Results you ask???

Well, just something of the finest ball striking of the decade for me.  Bunch of frozen ropes, a driver that is worth its salt, and precision wedge shots... 

Yeah. Of course, this was on the practice range and chipping green....
