Vacation really messed up my rhythm with my course work... nothing like waiting till the last 3.6 hours to get an assignment done. 😬

Ah, I remember it so well even if it was 54 or so years ago!!  Thing is... it did prepare me for my job assignments at work for many years after that.  Good experience!!  😃

I am used to it.  Happens all the time in my line of work.  Something comes up that has a ridiculous time constraint... I think I produce better work under the pressure... but I have nothing to compare it to.  Haha.

Same here - I always produced better work under pressure and last minute deadlines. Not sure what that says about me. 

Edit: similar thing happens on the course - I have lousy shots when I'm waiting a long time vs. quickly stepping up to the ball and hitting it.

Somehow i managed to get a part of a Tour Lock counterweight stuck in the shaft of my new putter. Not only was it stuck, but a metal piece got dislodged underneath a rubber piece so it rattled but couldn't shake it out. Had to take the whole thing apart and do some drilling. Fixed, but lost a $30 P2 grip, couldn't save it.

Bummer, you May want to try the Pure putter grip in midsize. I have it on a blade putter (Bellum-Winmore) and it feels very good.

Not a gripe, more of a "concern"...I love being involved with my kids and their sports, but I'm going to have to get damn creative to get my rounds in this year.  This is my 5-year old son's T-ball schedule.

TBall.jpg.004524f9587287b460ee7e576bb4feaa.jpg

His older brother (7) is in a select traveling team league, and has practices/games three times a week as well.  And, he starts a junior golf league in the middle of May.

Looking forward to it all, really, just looking forward to some golf too!

Feel your pain..  I had two in sports at the same time all year long. Son was on Baseball and Golf team for high school and my daughter was in Volleyball, Basketball and Track plus Basketball travel team and Track travel team. Then add in all the practices and private coaches and trainers.  My son graduated and my daughter is a senior and I am just down to the last track season. Then she is off to college on a track scholarship. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Time with the kids is a limited time engagement at best, 5 and 7 are great ages and so much growing to do with the accompanying adventures!  I miss my time as Soccer Dad, Cross Country Dad, and Dance Dad (for both daughter and son) as well as Scout Dad with son.  But those times are gone, only memories remain as golf fills the void left in their wake.  Thankful golf is forever ⛳🏌️‍♂️

And like me I'm sure you wouldn't have missed any of it.  I got roped into assistant coaching my older boy's baseball team too, so I can't exactly drop him off and head to the range!

Sunday rounds and twilight 9's for me this year I think.

I am going to put on a Flat Cat Solution that has the counterweight at the bottom of the grip built-in. Was attempting to put a counterweight near the bottom of the shaft with P2 grip plus the Tour Lock opti-vibe weights, but trying to adjust it was what caused my mini-fiasco lol.

Saw this passing the TV this morning, as a rule I never watch the "idiot tube" (yes I know they are not made with tubes anymore) but who could ever forget one of the formative movie foundations of modern life in Ferris Beuller's Day Off, and it's iconic music?  But how has this been around since the first of October 2020 and I did not know this?  Not sure how many (if any) clubs will fit in the 1966 E-Type Jaguar Roadster.  Just saying.

Somehow it is completely fitting for the MotoCaddy testing currently underway.  Oh yeah...
