    Off to Disneywold with my wife and oldest daughter today..... Wish my wallet luck.




    Thanks for the invite. Are you guys staying on property?




    Staying at Port Orleans. It’s ok. But this was a last minute trip so it’s the best we could do.



    Just finished Epcot. Test Track ride was the best thing here.




    Are you staying at Riverside or French Quarter? Port Orleans French Quarter is my favorite resort! I’ll be back down for the PGA Show in January.

    LOL....i get enough criticism from my wife, i don't need this here!



    It probably won't take me 2 months, but i have to do every room in the house, including closets and doors, ceiling tiles in the basement, and i'll only have time on weekends and a night here and there. So it may actually take that long on the actual calender

    Well, don't paint with your wife around the room you are painting in. I think the fumes can be harmful for the fetus if she breathes in enough of it.



    Oh and get ready for all kinds of crazy advice like this. I could be full of it, but I think remember my wife mentioning something like that to me. So, you may want to at least check into it a little.

    Yeah i don't think it's good for her, but no worries she's living in our condo.



    The cool thing is the house we bought is literally across the street from our condo. I'm not even exaggerating, i can throw a football out my window and hit it. So i just walk over when i get a chance and paint a bit. Our contractor is only available to start the major renos in a month

    Golf season has ended for me. Only played 32 rounds this year, 13 less than last year. handicap ended at 7.5, down .6 I had it down to a 7.1 in early fall, but faded down the stretch.



    How'd you guys do this year?

    My handicap dropped 4.5 strokes to 7.0. Played 169 official rounds (rounds I could post). Broke par for the first time (twice).



    And, I walked 98% of those rounds.



    Still playing until Mother Nature says, "No", and still playing the same gear we all received almost one year ago. :-)

    Played around 80 rounds, played to scratch during July-August which is our midsummer. I hadn't been down that low in a couple of years. Shot 72 or better something like 9-10 times which on our course which a 74-75 rating



    With some of the weight training i did my SS increased from 103-104 measured in San Diego to 112 mph measured the other day.



    Next time we do a long drive i'm taking Matt down!

    Dammmnnnn! Great playing guys.



    169 rounds! You are a beast, Sean. 4.5 stroke drop is awesome!



    Nice work on the increased SS and getting to scratch, Jeff.

    14 Rounds posted this year. Kind of a light year for me. Played a few new places and practiced quite a bit.



    No change to the index. Hope to increase my rounds played to 15 next year but we'll see.

    I Ordered a set of 2018 X-Forged yesterday. Looks like a 3-4 week delivery window.



    After all the good reviews I’ve seen and read, I can’t wait to get them.



    Great numbers, Jeff! What type of work ha e you been doing in the gym to help your SS?

    squats, deadlifts 2-3 times a week. And push ups and chin ups every day basically. Some bench press. Not much more than that. In a year I went from never having done a deadlift to almost doing 2x bodyweight. It's made a really big difference. I've only put on about 5 lbs because I still run a lot. I need to put on more weight

    Thanks Greg! At one point I was able to pay 38 days in a row...the only reason I stopped was that mother nature had other plans. lol

    I look forward to hearing how you like the new clubs!



    ps: in the colder weather I don't like using the push cart as I am always taking my mittens on and off, so what I do now is carry my bag. It's 5 clubs lighter, and I can put a hand warmers in my jacket pockets. My hands stay warm, and I don't have to keep fooling around with mittens. I shot a 72 (par 70) with the limited bag today.

    I’m back from Disney and out of money. It was fun and totally worth it seeing my daughter smile and laugh. Start saving now Jeff.



    As far as golf I’m not sure exactly how many rounds I played. I have 40 or so logged for handicap. But I played a ton of 7-9 hole “rounds” after work this year. Handicap is 7.4. Hitting the ball pretty good. Just need to tighten up a few little things. I have just ordered a combo set of Mizuno MP18. And have been back and forth between a Taylormade M2 and the Epic SZ lately. The Epic goes further but the M2 can be more playable. MD forged wedges need replacing with a fresh set so I’ll be doing that soon. Odyssey putter still going strong too.



    Been a fun 12 months of golf and I’m looking forward to next 12. And a reunion of theWRX.

    I still remember it like it was yesterday.....mostly because Chicago got the storm of the century that day and me and Scott both would've missed out on the trip were it not for them re-scheduling us a day early. Thankfully i am an OCD traveller/worrier. For once it paid off!



    I recall Bram ended up getting the worst of anyone schedule wise though as i think he ended up sitting on a runway in Houston for like 3-4 hours



    Me and Scott ended up going to Chad's Christmas party on the Saturday

    Does this thread get the credit or the blame for my too late for golfing too early for Christmas gift from Callaway that came last week?

    Sorry, a couple of those are bigger than life size, now they are SGI. ;-)

    Sadly done for the year thanks to snow and ice. Day they arrived and the next day took a few out in the 42 degree windy weather and walked several holes and hit shots with several balls from a variety of places. Not a very true sample size, and ordered (without fitting, yikes!) the heavier recoil 110 f4 instead of the 95 f4 I have in my Legacy Blacks as a test, but the results were really good. Ball flight lower than usual, but laser like, so will be interesting to test in warmer conditions side by side with another club. The feel was terrific and I like the look 10X better than any version of AP2s I've played up to and including the '16s. I will take them to the desert for a good workout in January! Instead of regular Tour Velvets also tried the multi-compound +4s which are interesting grips - those I'm not sure about, but again, want a warmer weather workout and some time on the range/course before passing judgment based on a couple of near dark chilly evenings. Trade in Trade up was too good to pass up.

    We have snow too. Not as much as you, but even here in the Northeast it's still a bit early.



    I am sure your snow will melt quickly and you will be back out there in no time. :-)

    I got a an inch max last night.



    At this time last year a gigantic winter storm was rolling its way to Chicago so I got out of town one day early.



    Then I met the friendliest Canadian you’d have ever met.
