It's nice that there's a forum that's friendly to players who aren't that good. I'm just starting out. I think there's a lot I can learn from these boards.

 

 

Same here... I'm not that great, but I love the game, and feel welcome here...

 

have fun and feel free to post questions...

First time out with the new grip and setup (adjustments stemming from my first session at GolfTEC). Just played nine holes and shot a 46. Considering the major changes, I'm pretty pleased with the effort.

 

I hit some pretty damn good iron shots, which has been my Achilles heel in the past. My short game was horrible. That was the toughest part of the swing changes. The new grip has impacted my touch with my wedges on chips and short pitches - at least until I get used to it. But, that will come around with time.

 

Honestly, I expected to play horribly so the fact that I could go out and enjoy myself while still making changes for the better was really encouraging.

 

Congrats on getting a good 9 mid-change. Where did you play? It was a little cool for me today, but so much nicer than yesterday.

That is why we set up this thread to hide from the good players ;)

Seriously, that's good stuff Nic for this early in the season.

The sad thing is that I will play the exact same way in August. There is no early, mid and late season for me. It is all bad.

We played Golf Club of Illinois. I started my work day early so I was able to get in a quick late afternoon round.

 

Funny thing... some holes on the course border a residential street. This one car kept driving by with a bunch of guys Jamo's age and they kept yelling "Homo" and "Queer" out of the car in the middle of our back swings. They did it a couple of times on and off to the point that one of my playing partners who is a good friend of mine decided he had enough. He started walking towards the car. The kids held their ground yelling things back and forth and then decided the better of it and drove off. I thought for a minute there I would have to get in the middle.

That's terrible. Sometimes you wonder who the parents of these kids are. I kinda wish your buddy had gotten his hands on them, though legally that would be a mess.

You ain't kidding. A police cruiser passed by a few minutes after they drove off. I could just hear the headline now... "Two Algonquin men were arrested Friday afternoon after mauling several local High School Students. The story on this shocking altercation at 10 o'clock."

Yeah, the law just isn't on the side of justice sometimes.

No, it isn't. I'm sure the wife would have loved to have bailed me out last night. And no posting from jail (gasp).

She isn't. Because after further examination it was found to be the Taylor Made, Tiger had never been there.

 

Dude, can't you read? Not a single Taylormade product in my bag... :lol:
