    Nice post up there about the old man Spook. Twilight is probably my favorite time to play - especially on an empty course.

    I've been pretty fortunate with the golf
    So far this year - I had a long golf weekend at Reynolds Plantation during Masters week and have been playing my home course on Hilton Head about every other weekend. I'd love to get more midweek golf in but life is just getting in the way.

    Anyone buying this new Srixon campaign to bring back yellow balls? If one of my buddies shows up with those on the first tee I'm either going to refer to them as gramps the entire round or buying them some blu-blockers for them to wear that'll make finding that dumb ball a snap in the woods.
    I still call it The Jake.

    Seeing as the best players in the world can't crack 70% for a full season, I would concur. Anyone have Mondays off in the Denver area? I might be looking to play in the afternoon tomorrow.

    Whatever. What is, is. Mickelson leads right now with 68.87% but I play easier courses, don't hit into the woods as much as he does and have been practicing my chipping longer than he's been alive. Helps if your misses always land just off the green. Enjoy your game.

    ^^^Normally I let the geezers have their fantasy , since this is TGR I will waive this rule .
    So let me get this straight , you rarely hit it in the woods , misses are just off the green , hit 4-8 greens in regulation and get up and down 8 out of ten times . Yet you have a double digit handicap .
    You are either full of shit or have the oldtimers .
    But hey , with stats like that , a little practice and a sex change you'll be on tour in no time .

    On reflection, 80% is sometimes. Closer to 50% is average. Some days I just suck. I probably should have been in the "Get drunk and post as much as you can" thread at the time. But the short game is the key. Did I ever tell you about the time I shot 69 after being 5 over going to the 6th? Should happen to everyone once in their life.

    I'm playing Hyland South this afternoon at 4 then practicing chipping and putting before picking up the wife. It's just a little par 3 course. Shortest hole is 65 and the longest is 205. I'd say average is around 140. $7 if you feel like coming up.

    i went out for the first time last week in AZ at troon. first time playing a desert course like that. you don't need a driver on most holes and of course i hit driver every time and took way too many drops. really hard to stick the greens there also. bump and run was the way. once i rolled over the green into a drainage. i'm about to walk down as i see my ball sitting there on the desert. so, i click my wedge against my putter to tell 'everything' i'm coming and a bobcat pops out from behind a bush and just looks at me. it was cool. i took another drop.

    I'm addicted to the XV tour yellow's - so I'd have to take your shit if we played...

    I think it is a great ball off the tee that spins nice enough around the greens, and doesn't get too cut up like my last ball did(Nike One Tour). I do like ProVx too, but they don't come in yellow (yet)!

    My Dad is a member there now. I've played it a few times. Tough and tricky, but fun.

    Mind you, all shit-giving would be in good nature and over several beers.

    I don't know squat about the ball's playability, I just think it would come off as distracting, personally. If it plays for you, then stick with what works!

    To quote Tin Cup:

    Boone: "Is that little pink fag ball supposed to intimidate me?" Roy: "Well, not unless I knock it by you."

    I saw that the NXT Tour comes in yellow now too, so the ProV's can't be far behind!!!

    two years ago i was playing early bird at rose city and played the front 9 okay and was trying to get to the back 9 before anybody got in front of me. i totally imploded on 10. obviously, i'm terrible, but this was exceptional even by my standards. had i been in the fairway, i'm sure they would have asked me to leave for destroying their manicure.

    in any case, i was really mad after 10, went to 11 and hit 5 tee shots -- 3 in the exact same area of the trees and two others i topped and drove into the ground.

    i went to the trees and hit at my balls a few times comically knocking them into trees and back at me. i could see the 10th tee box from where i was and there was still nobody there, so i picked everything up and ran over to start over. i played 10 better, but not great and then realized there was a single teeing off on 11 right as i was putting the flag back in. i yelled to him to see if i could join up and i'm pretty damn loud and there was no inkling that he heard me.

    i grabbed my stuff and started to huff it to 11 to tee off before he got too far down the fairway, all the while yelling at him and asking if i could hit. he just kept walking. i finally put my bag down and now was getting more pissed than i already was. for fuck's sake,i thoujght, at least say no. don[t just ignore me. so i ran after him and got to about 10 feet coming from behind slightly to his left and yelled "hey, if you don't want to play, just say so." and then he saw me and let out this bizarre yelp and jumped a mile in the sky, as did i. he had to be 65 at least.

    and he was deaf.

    so i had a good laugh and felt super stupid as i have many times and we played together i hit my tee shot on the par 3 11 to 4 feet. it was quite an experience and we had a pleasant morning being equally frustrated and expressing it in our own particular ways.

    +6 on South so you know I wasn't playing as bad as last Friday. Even though it's only a par 3, there's a few holes that require some precision. I'll take that all day.

    Tomorrow is gonna be a fun day.

    Fuck yeah, bud. I appreciate it more than you know. I'd never sell anything given to me from a mag; I always pay it forward.

    Thanks brother. Expect a surprise from Colorado in the near future.

    ^^^ the wedges are something like 3 degrees flat , unless you're a short fuck like me ,
    you might want to find somebody with a loft and lie machine and have them setup for your height .

    What's nice about handicap golf is once you've reached your maximum strokes per hole just pick up. Saves time and aggravation.

    Right on; thanks for the tip. I should be able to get them set up next Friday. I'll take the TaylorMade and Mizuno to the range this Friday and let you know how they hit.

    Thanks again, man.
