"You only hit a straight ball by accident.  The ball is going to move right or left every time you hit it, so you had better make it go one way or the other." -  Ben Hogan

Apparently, you and I have a lot of "accidents" on the course.  😂

... Ben was playing balata balls and hitting one of those straight with a persimmon driver or Muscle Back iron was most definitely impossible. Today everything is designed for straight and working the ball one way or the other is doable but you really have to work at it. Of course unless you don't want it to curve and then a nice over the top, open face delivery can do wonders moving the modern ball. 🤪

Science made the game easier for us without most of us realizing and we still have difficulty keeping it straight.  What a game 🤣

... True dat. I do hit a pretty straight ball. That said, on any given day I can easily push it straight right into trees, water or another fairway. Low and left is also an option although not as popular as high and right. 🙄

Now that is quite a change-up.  What is it about OR that has been enough and about AR that drew you there? Hopefully you're close to this.

In my defense, I was pretty drunk.  I've had enough of Oregon, BTW .... headed off to another pasture soon.  Arkansas will be the future home.  I'm going to invite @Yellow Ballto visit me as my guest at our Member Guest tournament.  Bear in mind, that a substantial entrance fee will be required....I did mention that you were paying for the both of us, plus all buy ins and side bets, right?

I guess you were drunk!!  @Yellow Ball ended up in mighty strange places.  Nice shot!!

I'd like to extend a personal invitation to our Member-Guest day. Entrance fee is only $200. which includes lunch, dinner, prizes, and a pair of shoes. Oh wait - you don't have any feet - sorry. 

Don't pick on my lack of feet. Let me show you what I got on my trip to the Netherlands. Figured these cool wooden shoes would help me in shallow water.

... Yellow Ball has reached a new low. Evidently a Tennessee fan, he threw himself at Lane Kiffen during the game:

One of those things was a yellow golf ball (who brings a golf ball to a football game?) that seemed to hit Kiffin while he talked to a referee.

I met @cksurfdude for lunch at a nice little Italian place for a slice of pizza. What’s better than NY pizza? “Nothing”. After lunch we went and played a bit.  Unfortunately my bucket list course will have to wait. He took me to a different course closer to the shore. Well I now know why we had a slice of pizza. His first tee shot with me was a SLLLIIIICE high and right off the tee! I should have known that was coming.

Oh you little prankster... I've figured out your real game which was a total con job on me .. and yeah, you got me .. got me good ...

No, there's no pizza better than NY pizza (yeah yeah Chicago you're ok) so when we're at my fav 'za stop and you started saying how you're a student of Italian culture and history and started asking me questions about the difference between Botticelli and Bernoulli .. now I'm not much of an art historian, so couldn't tell you a whole lot about the first guy, but I did get into our discussion of the physical principles of spin and aerodynamics on the trajectory of airborne objects .. just like what happens to you ole @Yellow Ball ...

I should've picked up on your obfuscatory (<- see what I did there) play when you also threw in the question about Vermicelli - you said you thought he was also some sort of important medieval personage - and I mean c'mon who says they love Italian food and doesn't know what vermicelli is .. or how it's different from capellini .. also not an important medieval personage. Sheesh. Didn't see it. Silly me.

So looking back on that first tee shot in our game it now occurs to me that the ball .. that devious little yellow ball .. had an unnaturally high amount of sidespin on it... I mean so high that the forward trajectory seemed to stop mid-air while the ball took an impossibly hard, tight right turn! Hmmmmm........

Well.. I give you credit for being a quick learner! And kudos for applying the theoretical lesson in a real world situation!! An "A" grade for you 💯

OK well we're still bro's and next time you're around this way we'll set up another fun round! 👍

Yellow Ball is a master of deception. Not to mention, a master of finding my way home. In my early years I was molded into the Ball that I am in an Italian neighborhood and looked forward to celebrating the feast of St. Joseph every year. On a side note, I have some eggplant parmigiana and chicken parmigiana with homemade sauce in the oven right now. Now that we have part of my upbringing out of the way!

Ok I see your trying to be cute with the bunny look. Nice attempt, but you can't expect me not to come back at you....What kind of New Yorker that's a NY Yankee's fan in their right mind would publish a photo of themselves with the logo backwards.  Sacrilege...... try reversing the image on a selfie or find a friend to take your photo. Wait a minute the southern New Yorkers aren't that friendly. Try reversing the image!

Maybe we can get together again next season. Bethpage Black hint hint! I was there, but nobody would take me out on the course. For some reason they think I will bring them bad luck or something! Dam bunch of pansies.
