When my wife asked if I wanted to leave Maine and move to where she grew up, I couldn't say no to Pinehurst, NC. I honestly don't spend much money on golf equipment, but I'm constantly reading reviews in case I ever get ready to buy

I swing left handed and have been the State of Maine Left Hander's champion since 1997, the last year they held the tournament. I'm currently a 6.3 handicap. Trying to get lower, but my gut gets in the way.

WITB

Driver: :taylormade-small: R11 9 degree turned 1 degree lower (Bought since it was on sale at Dick's)

Irons: :titelist-small: 990's S300 Stiff shafts bought when I was in college. (Received a personal use discount, otherwise would've stuck with my Hogan Edge's)

3 Wood: :callaway-small: GBB Epic 15 degree (only club newer than 5 years in the bag)

52/56/60 :taylormade-small: Z Spin wedges (heck of a deal $100 for all 3 at Dick's in 2013)

Putter: :odyssey-small: White Hot XG SRT (bought because I won credit for a long drive in 2010)

I'm going to crush it. I see all this negative talk - must be reverse psychology. Positive thinking for me. 💪

I've tried that too, doesn't work.  Hopefully you didn't pick any of my guys.  🤷‍♂️

... You can pick the odds. You can go with your gut. You can take your chances with a long shot. Or you can just pick your favorite players. I have done them all. 🙈🙉🙊  Every day is different and you never really know how you or anyone else will play in any given round. Never has the cliche applied more than a pick your Major winner: "I'd rather be lucky than good".

I haven't entered yet.   Not because I expect some late withdrawls, although I see bryson is saying he'll know tomorrow.   Not becasue I'm doing hours and hours of research, not because I'm waiting for the weather forecast and then guess who the best wind players are.  

Mainly because I'm a procrastinator, and I could have easily been the first entry in, since I set it up. But what's the fun in that.  I'll be scrambling tomorrow afternoon most likely...saying "oh heck, I better not put it off any longer", and end up going with 6 riapid fire picks off the top fo my head.  Which will all surely disappoitment in varied and facisnating ways..ha

yeah, that almost got me since I changed my user name in the midst of the contest.  Not that I am going to win now, but it would have been my luck that my entry has my old user name and it wins.

... Naw, I am guessing you know it will be 92* on Thursday/89* Friday and dropping to 62* on Saturday. Gives you plenty of time to come up with an algorithm for which golfers play well when there are 30* drops in temperature during a Major. 🧜‍♀️    🦄      🐷/🛩️
