  1. I have a couple of Spalding Executives from the 70's that are quite playable. They are laminate and have a bit of an odd shape with a squared off top and high toe. Adds to forgiveness presumably. The best thing about them is the proprietary Jet Step Lite shaft that you can find in medium or firm depending upon your preference. I'm an older guy with modest swing speed so I'm always on the look out for good playable clubs with regular flex (or softer) to promote better launch. Not a bad set of woods to pair with Hogan Radial irons and a Zebra putter for a period game improvement bag of club
  2. My buddy, Dave has one of those TV wedges in his bag. It's a C3i with 65° of loft. He isn't all that proficient with it, but can hit the odd good shot with it. I've never tried it, but maybe I should? Doesn't really appeal to me as it has a huge sole with tons of bounce. Sort of counter to what I'm really looking for. I've got a low bounce lob wedge kicking around that i could toss in the bag just to see if it could be the ticket.
  3. I think that they call it course management. Gawd knows that I've been guilty of plenty of questionable decisions in hind sight this season. On one bollocks of the finishing hole recently after a couple of total cockups I threw up my hands and putted from the rough! I figured it couldn't be any worse than a third attempt with SW and I wasn't about to walk back to the bag to choose a different club to card a 6! That particular par 3 is my nemesis as I can't make the green off the tee, so I have been hitting a hybrid for accuracy to the middle of the fairway leaving about 50+ yard
  4. Used to be a pretty solid wedge player, both full swings and with touch shots. That skillset seems to have abandoned me in the past couple of seasons. I honestly am getting concerned when I have a SW in my hand and need to take a full swing. Never seem to catch it flush anymore and often thin the ball across the green or even worse. I can take what should be a relatively straight forward up and down for par from perfect position in front of the hole and turn that into a triple bogie on the club's tough finishing hole with sloping green on top of a hill. I'll bet that I've averaged close t
  5. Zero, zip, nada HIO, Albatross, whatever. Had an Eagle once in a scramble, but that's the extent of my mention worthy holes.
  6. The club I worked at gave out a small HIO trophy. A dust collector that likely would eventually make its way into a storage bin with other sentimental items. The photo and having your name on the wall is worth more than the knick knack I would say.
  7. Indeed! Always nice to be present when an ace is scored. I have been working on at least two occasions when aces were potted. -------------------- Raining here today. Was supposed to play in my regular Thursday men's league tilt, but will likely take a pass. Have a medical appointment earlier this afternoon, so don't need the added rush. Nothing to report golf wise. Pretty sketchy play of late. Yesterday was a real drain for some reason. We're noticing the humidity more so than usual since returning from BC. I have a couple of small landscape project
  8. I don't think that Rory has figured that out yet even after all these years. That said, he does have a nice fat bank account thanks to Nike!
  9. Ca, Mg, Zn +D3; Turmeric; Saw Palmetto. Take the aforementioned along with two BP meds. I think that @Soloman1 is on to something with the gin of choice as a before dinner supplement. When cruising, our BD supplement has traditionally been Dubonnet with lots of ice and a twist of lime. Have never had one at home...
  10. I think they call that incognito...
  11. @Fellaheen51; kudos on the well played round and more so on whippin' the young 'uns butts at PIG!! It's good to know that one still has game! Speakin' of pool; time for a shout out to the Canadian women who out touched their USA counterparts for the silver medal in the 4X100m freestyle relay final last night! Congrats to the Aussie ladies who set a new WR in the process of winning the gold. We're in the fulltime Olympics mode now with the TV on every night following coverage. Always lots of human interest stories when the individual athletes are featured.
  12. Got back home late last night. The higher humidity is instantly noticeable! Slept in late, so still on Pacific time. Garden is kinda wild, but that's to be expected with the rains that we had. Funny how planter boxes that get neglected go south quickly despite forgiving weather. All in all things are in good shape. It will be interesting to see how the rust translates on the golf course. A two week layoff has usually been good for my game if I've been struggling, but that wasn't really the case before we left. DW beckons; off to do the weekly sh
  13. Bezos should be thanking all the unwitting customers (of which I too am one) for putting him in space!
  14. @billh17; it was very uncomfortable last night. We stayed in all evening despite not having AC and the temperature in excess of 30°C. This morning was much improved with clear skies and temperatures quite a bit lower. It's late afternoon now and the sky is starting to fill in and you can noticeably smell the smoke.
  15. Thought I'd share a couple photos I took last night after supper. Gives a pretty good indication of conditions out here at the moment. Fortunately the air is much better this morning.
