Totally awesome!  I can imagine it being the same age 🙂

Looking at the Google Maps satellite view, that must be front row viewing from the clubhouse!  (Does the clubhouse get hit often with golf balls?)

I say with great confidence that the aceless thread will be valid for me for a long time as only an act of God will cause such a thing as past shots have stopped where the cup had recently been by the traces sometimes visible proving I was late getting my ball to that spot.

On the clubhouse being hit, seen the roof being hit and balls ending in the car park but never seen a window hit. I've learnt over time where not to park my car.

Nice one!!! (see what I did there?) 

On a side note - Did you have to change for this pic?  You are dressed better than 98% of the golfers I see these days.

Nope I didn't change for the photo just my usual sartorial elegance.

Haven't post for a while but want to share.

After playing the game from the age of 13, at the age of 61 I hit my first hole in one yesterday.

Playing a tie at my Home course West Lothian Golf Club https://www.westlothiangc.com/course/. 18th, right in front of the club house, 135yds par 3 down hill with wind behind. A sweet hit Approach Wedge over the protecting bunker. Pitched about 2 feet from the hole and gently rolled into the hole. Got applause from the clubhouse and the Senior League team were on the 1st tee so they all congratulated me which added to the occasion

More than made up for losing the tie 3&2.

What made it sweeter is that I've been having problems with my irons and had the shanks up until a little work on the range on Wednesday.

Can we talk just about my putting and cheerfully ignore everything else? 😉

--> 15 putts over 9 holes with really good first putt distance control ... 3 x 1-putts and *NO* 3-putts!

 

Nice putting👍

... Finally got in 18 holes today. Not much energy and still tired and hard to believe it has been 3 weeks since coming down with this $%^&%$* sinus infection. First surprise was I tried to play Monday and only got thru 7 holes and mentioned that to one of the guys in the clubhouse (they all know me since I play 5 times a week) and Michael only charged me for 9 holes today without me asking. Nice start to my day. Then I was playing new irons, new shafts and a new driver with a new shaft. 20-25 mph winds but with the temps near 100* not a bad thing really.

... I really liked the LTDx Black with the LinQ White shaft but struggled with the KBS TGi shafts in my new Forged Tec irons. 5-pw with a FT-X 4 iron that was silly long off the tee and from the fairway and set me up for an eagle putt just over the 2nd green. I need to weaken it 2* and match the specs for the FT 4 iron. The FT's performed well but the TGi shafts just feels very brittle and stiff, unlike any graphite irons shafts I have played. Not sure if I was making poor contact, although all my par 3 shots had the tee mark in the center of the face, or the shafts are just very different because as I said, I felt a little weak and tired all round long. I am going to give them a few more rounds and then if the feel doesn't improve, I will re-shaft with Steelfibers similar to what I have in my MIM irons. Love that combo. 3 birdies and 2 bogies so 1 under par while still feeling under the weather gives me nothing to complain about. Resting this weekend then hopefully a little more energy for Mondays round! 

Sorry about the KBS TGi shafts.  I think you know right away if a shaft will work or not.  First impressions are important.  "Brittle" is not a good feeling.

First round in 2 weeks as the stitches just came out of my finger on Saturday. I had two bandages and athletic tape on the finger, but was pain free and it didn't effect me. Shot 40/41, I birdied the first hole but my putter was not working (34) as I couldn't make putts to save my life for the rest of the day. I had 3 or 4 more opportunities on the front as I was sticking my irons. Driver was ok, I hit some wild ones, but really only 2 hurt me. Got up and down on 17 & 18 to finish out, so chipping is coming into form. Playing again tomorrow, then a tournament on Thursday, and more golf over Memorial day.

About 25 years ago I had to get stitches in my finger when my hand slipped off a wrench working on the truck and I sliced my right index finger.  Our neighbor was a nurse and had certain skills along with the necessary equipment and homestead mentality to keep me from going to the ER.  I took a golf club with me and gripped the club to get the proper finger bend while she stitched me up and we taped in into that shape.   

You see we had two weekends of golf competition with the sister course starting the next day and I wasn't going to miss it!  It really didn't have any effect on how I played.  I was glad it wasn't my left index finger as the interlocking grip probably would have been a problem.

For a trade on stitching me up I re-shingled their pole barn once the stitches came out.  They have since moved to Mississippi so now I'd have to take a club to the ER with me and talk security into letting me bring it in.  😁

That’s dedication my friend.
  I did something very similar when I broke/cut my index finger many years ago.
