    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.

    Fore! Who's playing golf, yo-

    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.
    I'm cool with this, as long as you Kirkwood Bro Brah's stay away from Heavenly when 88 closes- TahoeBc

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

    I've gone 60 years with 3 sets of clubs. So you're good.

    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.

    Little lesson in golf mechanics this week after I pulled my right groin bad.

    I can't get through the ball with anything above a 5 iron. Driver is real bad.

    It's amazing how much you depend on digging in/pushing off on the turn through the ball with the right leg on those clubs

    Won our semifinal match last night but barely. I need to heal up by next week or I'll be a disaster off the tee still

    That looks awesome if you're also wanting to make it to the Open. I like the idea of going Thursday/Friday and watching TV coverage Sunday. Several of my friends in Portrush did exactly that last month and said it was perfect. I haven't played those courses but their reputations are solid. It wouldn't be my personal cup of tea because I hate both crowds and paying peak-season rates, I'd be going in October/November and spending a week at Dornoch, but that's just me...

    Have a blast!!

    Thank you for the input, Tye!
    We are heading to Korea in late November so October or November would be a little two much back to back international trips.
    Also thought about spring but weatherís too unstable...

    Finally getting back into it semi-seriously after many years of ~.5 rounds a year average. Dad was a GM at a handful of clubs in the greater Boston area over the last 30 years. Got to play with him in Ithaca a few weeks back (my first time in over a year, had some awful holes, some OK holes, and got my first ever Birdie, on in 2 on a 475 yard par 5. Hell of a feeling. Played an exec course last night and I'm starting to get a hang of the clubs, distance, and the short game again. Goal for this fall is to break 100, never done that before.

    Are you talking about Scotland? There is no predictable weather. It could pour rain for days in July. I suppose the odds are better.

    You two should think about a Bandon Dunes trip.

    MacDermott and MacDuff were sitting in the clubhouse, in front of the fireplace on a raw, blustery day. The freezing rain was beating against the windows as their beards thawed out. Outside, the wind from the North Sea roared with gale force. The pair were silent for a long time over their whiskeys. Finally, MacDermott spoke, "That was quite a round of golf. Same time next Saturday ?" "Aye," MacDuff replied, "weather permitting

    Conditions at yesterday's 4ball weren't conducive to shooting a score

    On my list as well. Although we're lucky to have his Huntsman Springs design here in Driggs. Which is rebranding as 'Tributary' if you get any invitations, which would be worth considering. Spectacular links course only missing the sea.

    Fore! Who's playing golf, yo-

    Had finals match last night for league...4 weeks of playoffs (top 16 of 24 qualify) and came down to the 2 teams with the best golfers in a handicapped format believe it or not. Match play best ball

    I had a good night and stepped on their throats when their better player was on. Two lengthy birdie putts over 3 hole stretch put them in a coffin. One of them was after my only bad tee shot...they were shook after that one. Shot even and left birdie putt hanging on the lip on 18.

    My game is totally dialed right now. Worst round in past few weeks is 77. Club championship is in 2 weeks...I'm dead set on winning it this year...LFG!!

    Yep...completely fine.Doc said 6 weeks to heal...took 11 or 12

    Lucky only 2-4 weeks. They told me 3 months recovery if mine didn't heal and I needed surgery
