Fireball - helping golfers stay warm and make poor decisions in the worst of conditions.... Well done only losing 1 ball! 

It was into the upper 70s lol so was already plenty warm.

the fireball hit hard by that last hole.  Knew I was in trouble just stepping up to the ball.

gotta say though… I may be in love with the srixon qstar tour balls.

Wait a minute!!  How can you guys in the upper midwest be warmer than the PNW!??  I woke up to 34º and it will only get to 54º around 4pm.  

Anyway... Good morning everyone!  The good news is that the wind is down today so I will get out to walk 9 holes... maybe 18.  Spent yesterday in my hitting bay working on extending in the backswing; I'll see how that works on the course.

That's a great question, Kenny! But I'm not going to complain 😂

....sadly, we are going to jump back down to lows in the 30s and highs in the 50s next week with a lot of rain in the forecast 👎

22 handicap takes a shot of fireball, "Yea, I can squeeze this 4 iron through that 2 foot gap in the trees off of all of these pine needles." 😆

Are you creepin on my arccos profile lol.  
I actually pulled my 5i out of my bag before this round.

 

made that mistake last year.  I can totally squeeze this 3w through the trees.  THUNK.. 90* turn… it then launches itself over the fairway and into a creek.  Shoulda just pushed it out haha.

It looks like we need a good evening thread!!

 

Oh, another thread to be three pages behind in reading. Plus, by the time I would post in it, you guys are in bed and wouldn't see until the next morning.

Looking great, Bob! 😍

GM, coffee and Sports Page.  Texted briefly with Gson who turned 17 this morning.  

Yesterday SWMBO got a message from her Doc that she has a problem with some test and needs to see a Specialist.  We have a 11:00am appointment with that Doc.  Hopefully a it’s nothing and they just want to make sure.  Obviously my schedule got cleared for the day.

Prayers for a wonderful outcome. 🙏

Ah yes the dreaded no balance, double ball approach to the tee box. Definitely a different level of concentration needed for that one....

Are those a higher swing speed ball or do they have their "Pro V-1/X" versions also? 

Hit 'em long!

It’s a soft ball.  Very similar in profile to the Bridgestone tour B RXS / RX

im probably topping out at maybe 100 on driver swing speed (usually end up with drives in the 235-265yd range).

Appreciate that! Interesting, heard good things from others as well...I'm currently trying out the Titleist AVX balls right now and I seem to hit those really straight and longer- compared to Kirkland Premium, Vice Pro, and Bridgestone E6 balls tested this past couple months. Wish they were the price of those Kirkland's though 😂

Hit 'em long!

I am wearing about 6 layers.  I absolutely despise cold weather any more.  5 years in Da UP makes me want to live somewhere on the Equator.  
 

Hopefully my next duty station is in Hawaii, it was perfect weather.

I've been wearing 5-6 layers all winter, including last weekend.  Don't get old... it gets worse the older you get... probably why they invented "snowbirds".

Oh man.  I lived right “in the middle with you” on that one.  Northern Michigan booms in the summer with the “Fudgies” as we called them, only come up for the Kilwins Chocolate.  Otherwise known as snowbirds.

The fruits of 5 hours organizing. Turns out I have about 140 different golf balls.

20230411_183422.jpg

I have a 5 gallon bucket of golf balls. My father-in-law gave to us. I don’t know how many years ago that I haven’t even touched yet. He was a member at a country club and we go out into the woods on his walk to his ball in the middle of the fairway and pick up balls along the way. I’m not sure I would have the patience to go through a whole 5 gallon bucket of golf balls.
