Completely random, just caught this clip from BDS on fb. I like watching then when they have pro players involved. Will watch the full video tonight probably.

On instagram Mygolfspy was giving away 3 custom sets of zx5mkii irons if the account got to 300k followers by midnight on New Year’s Eve.  I haven’t seen any announcements of them reaching before midnight?  Does anyone know?  There’s a good chance I just missed it.

Winners have been announced on mygolfspy instagram.  I sadly did not win.  But I will say the zx5mkii are definitely on my radar.  There’s always next time…

I got my old clubs re-shafted to my specs. Picked them up yesterday but got home too late to try them out. Of course it rained all day today.  
But always thinking about golf I made a floating green for the pool today.  I took an old kids snow saucer, some left over puzzle piece foam flooring, green felt. And an old golf cup. A bunch of trimming and spray adhesive and done. Just need a small flag used on putting greens. Then some foam or plastic balls with some Velcro on them in spots. 
Should be fun this summer.

Use ping pong balls and cut the velcro as thin as possible and tape it around it on both hemispheres.

I have plenty of foam, plastic, and wiffle golf balls at the house. I’ll just have to try each type with the Velcro to see which one works best.

I will preface this by saying that I'm not actively looking for a new job, but I'm also not immune to keeping my options open so to speak if the right opportunity were to come around. I will field conversations from recruiters and such if there are interesting positions. However, am I being unreasonable when I am annoyed by the most recent recruiter? They initially contacted me in early December with a position that would have required a relocation across the country and a decrease in pay. I responded that the salary listed seemed low for the position and it would be difficult to justify a relocation in this situation. At this point, said recruiter went completely radio silent and did not respond.

Sure enough, two days ago, the same recruiter reaches out with the same position and a complete disregard for my previous response. No response to my concerns, not even an acknowledgment that they had previously contacted me at all, much less about the exact position in question. These are the type of recruiters I see complaining about being ghosted on social media. Maybe people need to learn that it goes both ways?

There are some good recruiters and a lot of really bad ones. Before the proliferation of the internet we used to call them "headhunters". No idea where that term came from. I've worked in IT my whole career and they can be relentless.

Good luck to you!

After the community call this evening I came downstairs to my wife prepping food in the kitchen. We're looking out the window at our neighbor who's on her phone and staring at the sky. My wife gets curious and decided to go outside and see what was happening. She was out there a couple of minutes when the curiosity got the best of me and I peeked out and ask her if there's something up there. She proceeded to tell me it was a huge flick of birds and that one of them pooped on her head.

Guess who go to clean it up? 

 

Also, congratulations @tony@CIC

You know, if they televised a relay team golf tournament,  i would watch it!

4 man teams. Tee, fairway, approach, putting.   Hmmmm ???
