Happy thread

Recommended Posts

I could have started this post in the Rant Thread, but it has a happy ending... no, not that kind!

 

I flew to Phoenix today.  I got up at 3:30am to catch a 5:45am flight to Seattle on Delta.  The flight crew boarded at 5am.  I scored an upgrade to First Class.  When I boarded and took my seat, the flight attendant asked if I would like anything to drink besides the complimentary bottle of water.  

 

I said, "SURE!  I'd love a cup of coffee."  

She said, "Oh, I'm not sure that it's working."  

 

SAY WHAT?  It's 5am and you didn't put the coffee on??  You didn't even check??  (That was my Inside Voice, but sometimes my Inside Voice gets Outside.)  Thankfully, it didn't this time.  It's only a 45 min flight, but I still wanted coffee... none came.

 

Changed planes in Seattle; short layover, had to hustle through the airport.  Again in First Class I board the plane and the same flight attendant was at the door of the plane.  I take my 3C seat, and before she started through First Class asking what people wanted, she brought me a cup of coffee!!!  I didn't even have to ask.  

 

The best part of the trip was my clubs arrived in Phoenix intact in my Club Glove bag.  I am staying at the Legacy Golf Resort, but I arrived before noon and my room wasn't ready yet, so I had a nice lunch and spent a couple of hours chipping and putting on Bermuda grass.  Whoa!! It's fast!!

Got home from the club yesterday and found out my youngest got selected to be a student ambassador for her school. They chose two out of the entire school and she was one of them. Not bad for a six year old

High School reunion this weekend. Golfing with my old buddies tomorrow and Saturday in Ann Arbor as long as the weather holds! Looking forward to our round tomorrow as we're playing at a private UofM course, Radrick Farms, that I've never played before. Saturday we will play at the former CC where I used to work in the summers during college; what was Washtenaw CC. I can't wait! Should be a TON of fun!

In my case that means my wife and I head to the golf course. If we are not on the golf course for our anniversary, then neither of us are happy. We met on the golf course, I proposed on the 1st tee, and we got married on the 1st tee; said I DO and turned around and teed off. Everyone played until we dropped.

Same for us. Hell, sometimes I have to fight my wife to see who gets to play while the other babysits.

Too much ranting and not enough happiness.

 

 

I'm a happy homeowner today. I just successfully unclogged an awfully clogged toilet using an auger. It's not much to others but it's my first time doing it so I'm glad I could do the "manly" thing for my family.

... Amen! Not to be political but the worst thing that has happened in this country is the oligarchy convincing the common man that a liberal or a conservative is the enemy. So much ranting when we are all in this boat together. Hopefully we get back to agree to disagree with respect and still play golf together. Or lend your neighbor, regardless of who he/she voted for, an auger to unplug their toilet and be happy :)

If you have kids it won't be the last. That use to be the after school activity at my house - see how much you can stuff down the toilet.

Oh man! I have two daughters that needed quite a bit of orthodontics. Good luck! By the time we were done with that, it was 30k between the two of them.

      Next steps to my road to improvement
      Current
       Adding the Mizuno MMC FliHi 4 iron to the bag once it comes it to replace my hybrid. The hybrid has too significant of a draw bias, not terrible, but I also draw the ball naturally already, and will probably go in and out of the bag, but I'm looking for better shot shaping with the FliHi and have that 210 to 225 distance into the green and off of the tee. Working on my putting. I'm rolling the ball nicely now with a slightly open stance with my current putter. I have another putter that I can get the ball rolling online, but the pace is off. Future step is to actually get fit for a putter. Working on my natural tempo and swing speed for the driver to have more consistent drives. See below for more info. Next
      Driver shaft optimization. Not looking for a new head yet. I like my 2017 M1 460. Interested in the journey of testing some shafts. Right now my shaft is determining what kind of shot I can do. Slower speed and tempo than my natural speed and tempo. This has lead to a great deal of inconsistency of trying to find the "magic speed and tempo" and I know that isn't the way to go. Swing speed training. I'll have multiple shafts at this point so I can game whatever is best fitting me as I go along. And I can always swing a little slower or club down to hit a fairway. Future
      Get fitted for a putter > get fitted for a driver/shaft and woods from a high level, reputable company willing to discuss numbers and takes the time and right approach. Open to custom shafts and not just from the OEM cart like at a Golf Galaxy. I have only been fitted to a driver once, but didn't purchase as I did not like the experience, small selection of shafts, and I wasn't swinging my natural speed and tempo like I should have.

      I'm really liking the new UI on this forum. It looks really clean!
