The Good Morning Thread

Recommended Posts

Bah humbug! The grinch spirit is flowing strong this morning. No coffee today, and a Late start. We had an inflatable catch fire last night.  Wife looked outside and saw it was a tad brighter than normal, and as I approached it, it got super bright,  and then *poooof* up in flames and melting to the ground. Best i can figure the internal light wiring caused it.  It was 12 years old though. (incandescent lighting)

May you all have a better day ahead!

With the potential play-off implications that would occur if they beat Georgia, I too am hoping they "Roll" today being based here in Michigan

The way their last 3 games were hamdled, I'm more concerned it will be a refs game over a players game...

Nope, it was raining,  and was able to keep the rest from catching on. No ground damage either.  Thanks for asking

Long day in work world.. Definitely earned my daily bread. Got to oversee one more work procedure then hopefully head for the house come daylight.

 

I JUST READ AN ARTICLE THAT STATED..  For the first time ever this past year more golfers went to off-course golf courses than went to traditional golf courses. Guess I am “ REALLY To Old “.. TopGolf,SIMs, and such would hit diminishing returns with me, if they were my only golf options for the year… What say you, my logical and knowledgeable spies?

Tenderloins, back straps and sausage! Hit my two hog limit in the first three hours. Going to get more tags!

That’s a productive three hours!

I have nothing against Sims or places like TopGolf and would definitely say that they have their place. I don’t mind using them but if given the choice of one or the other I would prefer the real deal. I’ve never had the opportunity to use a facility like a TopGolf but would like to give it a try. There is a similar facility from PinSeekers that was recently built about 90 minutes from me that buddies have been talking about so it might be in my future.

I watched a Rick Shiels podcast awhile back that approached this subject. The stats Guy produced on the number of sim club bars, and range club memberships was quite astounding. IIRC,  75% of the members were business types that never stepped onto a real course.  But participation on weekly after work leagues was gaining alot of traction over in the UK.  I know the USA side has grown for independen top golf/top tracer type facilities too.  We actually had a sim bar just open up last month here.

I have NO issue with Sim’s, TopGolf, or other such venues as occasional supplement, auxiliary, or change of pace options. As my only option(s) for golf without the recourse of going to a traditional course is not something that I believe would make golf viable for me.
