I'm swinging better this week- swing is def improving, the F9 is still very low for a 10.5* head, sometimes half as high as my 9.5* D3

Must be the Indian, need to work on a higher launch methinks but it has great potential.

I've been messing around with my driver settings quite a bit lately.  The 10.5 loft would sometimes balloon up so I dialed it down to 9.5 last week.  I hit my longest drive of the season with the lower loft but also had a few line drives that didn't go anywhere with the wet grass (and the fact that I hit into the rough).

Might try to find the best of both worlds and keep it at 10.5 on most days but dial it down to 9.5 when it's extremely windy or very dry out.

Awfully quiet in the thread this week.  Am I going to have to do everything myself?  I already have an outfit picked out for my round on Thursday.

I also found this old picture of @GolfSpy STUDque doing his best Rickie impression.  Not too shabby!

Not sure about the rest of you but I'm catching my breath! Week 4 already, to me it feels like we only just started 😵.

On another note, it's the middle of winter here and the forecast is for 63* today!!

Right golf related now, here are my driver stats at the beginning of the challenge followed by how they stand now. I'm liking what I'm seeing 😁😎Screenshot_20190623-213633.thumb.png.b0a7f3f0871f5d26946b8ced4540b020.png

I haven't touched the loft at all on mine. The 10.5 launches in a nice envelope for me so I don't want to risk it.

After playing Thursday Friday Saturday and Sunday I’m taking a few days off. I’ll be back at it possibly Thursday, Friday for sure. With temps in the mid 90s with heat index’s over 100, makes it hard to want to go play after I’ve worked all day outside.

So I figured this challenge was a great time to break out the senior yearbook photo...mullet and all!

I’m gonna attempt to play today. Smashed my thumb yesterday with a big ass hammer. It’s killing me but I’m gonna play just to make sure I keep my momentum going.

Since I didn't feel worthy of winning last week I had my wife pick me up some orange plaid shorts yesterday! Needless to say they will be getting returned as they are way too long. She said she would divorce me if I shaved the beard for a mustache so this is the best I could do! emoji23.pngimage0000.jpeg

I think those shorts are just the right length! When you crouch, do they touch the ground?

They don’t touch the ground. That is just my short legs that give that illusion!

Just giving Rickie a glimpse at his future! You know should he decide to grow a beard, shrink a couple inches, gain 50-100 pounds, and forget how to golf!
