Is it just me, or do any other Arccos users pick a random course, and see what it says.  Like Royal Birkdale for example?

Sure could was a lot of time dreaming about playing there.

Stayed in an absolute abomination of a hotel last night the next two nights I’m in LUXURY holy cow and for only 20 dollar difference this is crazy

Haha.  I used to pick the hotels we stayed in… until I saved like $6 and it was the nastiest place on earth… my privileges were revoked.  My wife uses a bookings dot com and we get some sweet places…. For like $6 more than I payed for a dumpster that one time.

Yea I hate to say it but the points I got for booking a Wyndham was not worth the free night next time I stay at one of their places.

Just got an 100% on a test.  So what if it was an open book test… it has a lot of pages.

I always found open book tests to be the most challenging because they were timed. If you spent lots of time looking stuff up you could never finish in time.

That's my go to. We got the place we're staying at in Bonita Springs in September for $20 a night less than the hotel was offering. Here's a couple of photo's.

Got to try my friend's 'golf scooter' for one hole last night. It was fun but I was happy to get back into my cart. The fun factor would wear off pretty quickly for me since there's no sun or rain protection. Plus I could see my back hurting quickly since there's no support. But for one hole it was still fun.

One of the ladies in my wife's league brought this to the course yesterday in the back of her SUV:

Just pulled out the swing speed radar to see if Arccos is juicing my numbers….

 

112mph 3 iron fresh out of the bag…

114mph second swing…

108mph third…

110mph fourth…??

 

What is someone putting in my drink? For real, I have not been speed training at all.  Insane.

12.6K sign-ups for the Titleist iron test, and still climbing with the deadline not coming until 5 Aug.  Unreal; has to be a record.

Yeah, I’m not sure what the record is, but this has to break it!

I've done it a few times. I like looking at some of the courses mentioned on here as well as some of the ones the professionals do. I play the same courses all the time and it's interesting to see how others are laid out. I need to get out more.

I spent the entire day working on my swing.  I don’t even know what happened.  I had a nice quarter sized mark going from hitting 50 - 75 yard shots with my 58°… then all of the sudden I got flippy with the wrists… hitting at the ball is never good.  2 bad swings made for some really bad swing thoughts.

 

Finally tamed the junk… goodness.  
 

on fire one day, dumpster on fire the next…. 🤷🏼‍♂️

i played Trump Links at Ferry Point today with my dad, brother in law, and dad’s cousin. 

it was expensive for sure, but a nice treat once a year. the course is immaculate. lots of wind because you’re right on the water, and the fescue is no joke. 

it was awesome playing with the manhattan skyline in the background
