    Played unbelievable 17 hole at Bethpage Black.
    Course was hard as hell and it was difficult to reach fairway since there was no tee for ladies.
    But we had a great foursome with two other gentlemen we met at the first tee.
    There something about old man named Bob.
    They are just the right kind.













    We had 3:57pm tee time and by 17th hole couldnít see the ball anymore.



    Shared a beer and exchanged phone number with Bob for next time!

    So you just walk on? Beautiful day.

    The wife bought me a new Izzo to replace the Izzo I got from Play It Again Sports about 15 years ago. I feel like she gave me a velour zip front jacket to replace my favorite faded sweatshirt. The new one is lighter but made more cheaply with smaller zippers, fewer pockets and a few other manufacturing cheapouts. I'll keep the old one as a backup. FWIW, I had a business relationship with Bruce Dan before he bought Izzo. He owned a Sony distributorship moving $10 mil of electronics a year and a golf accessories company called Gold Arrow. Tried to work with Gold Arrow on some golf accessory bags from a factory I knew in China but the Gold Arrow buyer was too price driven for the quality and service I was delivering.

    Fore! Who's playing golf, yo-

    We need some WITB posts for fun.

    I love seeing them for the pros cause I'm a gear geek (my putter is my only club not customized) and like to see how they use mix of shafts and clubs to tweak performance. I'll take some pics later and put mine together.

    This is what I'm talking about...

    9-5 Irons. System 3000 Mizuno knockoffs that were custom fitted to me. Love'em but groves need work. The guy who fitted me said I was a 42 Reg.

    Tuesday throwdown. Was a little less bad today. Only 2 dubbles for an 80 (+9). Hit a $ tee shot on 18 and went for HERO status again. Wasn't a hero today but kept it to a booger on 18. I'm going to go lower.

    Ha

    For less than $200 on eBay you could replace those woods with good clubs that would completely change the game for you

    You're right. The question is will I enjoy playing that game? I play the whites and don't think I'd like Driver/Wedge for 9 holes. I really need some new irons. I like the System 3000, forged with a bit of weight in the sole and behind the sweet spot. The groves are worn out from practicing. I'm a "feel" player even with the driver. I don't lack distance off the tee. Need more GIR's. And fewer 1 putts for par. Find me a set with a reg shaft at Chili for under $400.

    Humble brag...I had a fucking night last night

    2nd round of playoffs for league. Format is net best ball match play. We're the top team and played next best team...only had to give one stroke

    I beat them on my own ball 2 and 1. My partner was a disaster

    I do miss playing competitive 4 ball with a regular partner.

    Yesterday I was a volunteer assistant at a golf clinic for the kids in juvenile detention. 10-12 kids at a time who have never swung a golf club hitting off carpeted plywood mats on the soccer field. The kids were glad to be outside and the HS golf coach that runs it keeps it light and moving along. I really enjoy interacting one on one with the kids and expectations are kept low. Today is Old Farts and Dinner League night. I'm working on increasing my club head speed by decreasing my back swing and swing speed. A mental challenge as much as physical.

    Took my Presidents Cup Semi's match. Shot a 79 on a different course (+8 here). Started +3 after the first 2 holes. Won 5 and 3. My opponent was a little peeved that I broke 80 with a 13 handicap. On to the Quarters.

    Fore! Who's playing golf, yo-

    Just got fitted with Ping G410 fairway wood with Accra FX 100 Driver shaft. (new)



    Ping G410 4 hybrid 22 with Accra 60i shaft.
    Ping G400 5 hybrid 26 with Accra 60i shaft.
    Ping G410 6 hybrid 30 with Accra 60i shaft.

    This is my second set since 2016.
    I have 57 years to go to get the third if I can make it that long.

    Ha, your journey will be different than mine. I still have my first set. Aluminum shafts cut 1 3/4" short of standard. Forged blades. Once a year I put the 7 iron in the bag and hit one 130-40 yd shot. Then I put it away until next year. I should probably change the grips. They are harder than the shafts.

    My dad played golf back in 70ís in Korea.
    I have memories of following him to driving range and tried to swing his clubs.
    If my parents put me in golf lessons instead of piano, ballet and art classes, I often wonder what wouldíve happened.
    I guess better late then never but starting at age 44 I have a lot to catch up and having so much fun doing it.

    Elevated fairway.
    Girlfriend (12 handicap) on the left and Iím on the right.
