    Awesome stuff.



    Be sure to reach out to the company that makes your irons and the ball you used. A lot of times they'll send you some kind of swag. Callaway and Srixon sent me some stuff when I had mine.

    Happy Birthday. I'm impressed and a little bit bitter jealous. You say almost 40 years but that doesn't quite cover it. What would be your estimate on the number of rounds it took?

    Interesting question that I haven't pondered. Thanks to my wonderful hard working wife, I retired at 46 in 2005 and my rounds played significantly increased. I also became a much better player after retirement. Sometime in 2007 I had my lowest handicap ever at 9. Much higher now because just don't enjoy practice any longer.

    Congrats! Normally on your birthday...people buy you drinks...but if you make a hole-in-one...you'd have to buy them drinks. Are you net-net neutral on the libations then??

    I bought the Gatorade at the turn. Does that count?
