    Shooting 70’s and having a good junior golfer at the same time can be done. Its tough but no way in **** am I giving up the game anytime soon lol. People always ask if I play or practice with my son and right now I dont. Im looking forward to the day he kicks my a** though.




    Yeah, call me selfish, but half the reason I pushed my daughter to play is to punch my own ticket to go out and hit balls.

    See that is how it starts you don't practice and in a few years you end up like the rest of us.

    A bit off topic, but I'm in Chicago with my daughter for the Western Women's Am. She shot 73-80 and missed the match play cut (124 players for 32 match play spots).



    I'd usually be disappointed, but her college teammate missed also but is a member of Medinah CC, so we'll be playing and hanging there today and tomorrow. 😁

    I would usually like this post but I'm a bit jealous. Enjoy!

    I picked up the clubs yesterday for the second time since last August. Was pleasantly surprised to shoot a 45 on 9 holes. Had a great time with the kid even though he out drove me and put a whipping on me.

    I expect better.

    Luckily for me, I have to keep my game sharp for work. If my son isn't playing or practicing then I am. I'll never get close to scratch again, but being an low mid single digit index isn't so bad. image/superman.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':superman:' />
