I found that once I retired, I could sleep through artillery fire and get up at ten or eleven if I wanted to.

Not an exaggeration actually, I was deployed in Iraq on a base north of Baghdad and the counter-battery artillery was 800m from my CHU (Container Housing Unit), like a little cabin made from a half size shipping container with interior paneling and floor but minimal insulation, oh had windows either side of the door on one side and an air conditioner on the back.  There was sirens for the radar detected incoming rockets, mortars and such lobbed into the base and usually before the sirens stopped the radar directed 109mm howitzer opened up with 3 or 4 shells fired at the point of origin almost before the last incoming whatever exploded in the base and then lots of nothing until the all clear siren 30 minutes after the warning siren.  I would wake up hearing the all clear siren not having heard the incoming explosions, siren or counter-battery returned fires... would look to see if there was any stars shining through new holes in the ceiling and seeing no holes went back to sleep.

True story experienced more times than I can remember. 🥺

Myrtle Beach loses another golf course to residential communities!

I just received an email from Myrtle Beach Golf stating that The Witch is closing for good mid November. If anyone wants to play it for one last time they better hurry.

That was a great Dan Maples course. Such a shame!

That's a little surprising given just how much golf and play levels have exploded the last couple of years.  "The Witch"; what a fantastic name for a golf course 👍.  Looks like it's not just the $$$$ driving the decision - the course has dealt with some serious flooding damage in recent years and that is the stated reason.

I wish I would have know when I was down there in July. I would have played that one again. At least I have their logo ball on one of my racks. I broke 80 for the first time on one of its sister courses, The Wizard.

The Wizard... even better.  I love the creativity in so many of the golf course names around the globe.  In fact, that sounds like the genesis of a fun thread 😉.

Yes, I remember them all.  Played Witch & Wizard, not sure if I played Man-O-War.  If memory serves they were always a bit “wet”.

Never cease to be amazed with the amount of information available at people’s fingertips that so many still have misperceptions about old theories.

Yup but not all misinformation is misinformation. Some of if not a lot of it is true but people don’t want to believe it because of their biases and it would require them to admit they were wrong on a topic so it gets labeled misinformation.

Extremely pissed off right now. Was trying to reshaft a brand new Evnroll putter and Evnroll must have had a poor tolerance on the head and slammed the steel shaft in there. Wrecked the hosel trying to remove it.

That's a pisser. So more like a press-fit?  Were you able to use your new shaft puller or do these not work on many putter designs?

Never had this happen before. i have all the equipment for club building and still didn't work.

So I have pulled at least 3 or 4 of these same Evnroll putters before, and all of those were straightforward, no issues. Normally with a steel shaft, my first attempt is to twist the head off after a bunch of heat, didn't work. I for sure applied enough heat, the whole head was hot!

Tried the shaft puller, that didn't work. Tried banging the head on the ground (on a mat) to get it to twist, that didn't work either. I think it was poor manufacturing tolerances on this specific head or shaft. Either hosel was too small or shaft tip was too big. And during manufacturing, instead of fixing the issue, they probably used the trick of slamming the shaft in the head.

I've actually had a weird experience with a LAB putter before as well. That time, i wasn't trying to pull the head, i was trying to re-grip it. I was trying to pull the grip with a grip remover and solvent and was holding the head and tried to twist the grip and the head fell off lol. Looked at the shaft and only 1/8" was prepped and the hole didn't look like it had any epoxy in it. 

Quality control amongst manufacturers is not always good.

Forgot about another issue I had in the past. I had to apply so much heat my Edel wedges to pull the heads that the lead weights inside liquified lol. Must have ran out of golf epoxy and used the JB weld.

Never had any issues with the big OEMs. Pulled a Taylormade wedge today. Pulled Odyssey heads more times than I can count. Pulled Callaway heads. Etc. Seems to be all the weird things happen with the smaller manufacturers.

That was a great Dan Maples course. Such a shame!

Also this was on my local news---- They finally got approval or whatever River Oaks the Bear course which is closest to to the waterway is closed and Condos going in. Still leaves them 18 holes though.

Wizzard who is owned by the same folks as The Witch is trying ( again ) to get rezoned for housing. They tried around 07 or so and it got shot down. People are raising the devil there about maybe adding more residences in a allready overloaded area. That was what shot it down in 07.  

The Witch----- That deal has been in the works for a year now. As you saw most of that land is swamp and they can only build on 1/2 of it. The main push on that deal was to put in more housing for CCU students. I will agree it is a great course. My drawback is it could be best enjoyed in fall and a mild winter. Playing it in summer is murder. The air is stagnant and does not move because of the swamps and the insects are terrible. But I still hate to see it go

I will agree on some of the smaller manufacturers. Most of my horrows have came from messing with used clubs and some of the issues associated with them from improper repairs. Yep I have seen JB Weld used and the biggest one was someone put a putter head on with Red Loctite.
