  1. I'd love to get an 84 ! I would be extremely happy with it ! I got 18 in yesterday, and my numbers were a little higher than 84. Hit some good iron shots, and some others in the "lets try that one again" bracket. Tee box was the best aspect, other than distance. I am more than happy with my 225, but that voice in my head keeps mumbling, calling me " billiee"..... rain and more rain today...nothing like Conrads, just a wet soaking almost 3". high 50's next week, hope to get a couple more rounds in.
  2. On a more serious note, i will be leaving for the course shortly. Going to try for 18, but the sky is looking dark to the south thru the west. Autumn is rapidly closing here. Most of the trees are almost bare. Colors weren't that great this year. My Sugar Maples and Sweet Gum trees are usually bright red with the maples having a lot of orange color too,. This year was pretty dull with only a little red. Hope all of you guys can get out and enjoy the last warmer days before winter sits in.
  3. I'm like Conrad. I grew up playing baseball, with the last four years i played being at a higher level . And i did not even watch a single inning of this years so called world series. played 1/2 a season, with almost 1/2 the teams postponing games, fake fan noise, announcers yelling , trying to make every game sound like a huge crowd of fans were there. Even fake fans in the stands. Wonder who thought that was a great idea? lol . cannot believe they didn't stop that. And then, to cap off all the silliness, almost 1/2 the teams made the playoffs, and the series play
  4. Been absent for a few days. Experienced computer issues. And when finally got a new one, i could not remember any passwords, so i had no recovery email either. after several tries over a couple days,the folks here corrected the issue perfectly. got my old account back ! NOTE to self: Write the ......things down !
  5. You guys are lucky. I get 18 in with my grand daughter and usually a couple of her friends. the youngsters ,being polite young ladies, are very nice and do not make many giggling comments as they out drive gramps. they do make a few, especially after i utter a phrase from Everybody Loves Raymond (his dad,Frank uses it a lot)....as i watch some of their tee shots i mutter it a few times...holy crap ! and they giggle !
  6. glad you had a good day on the course ! Sorry to hear about your friend. The last four years of my life have made me a believer that EVERY day is a bonus I was always an outdoor person but i have become obsessed with watching the sunrise each morning ! Love the colors ! Hope your next round is even better !
  7. beautiful sunsets, and wild animals , up here our wild ones are limited to fox,deer and the rare hawk and owl. Most of the rattlers and copperheads are really deep in the woods. Got a nice 9 holes in today. 62 and sunny made for a nice day out there. The high school teams are done with their games for the year so the course has quieted down a lot. Got a lot of practice in. hit more good ones then others and only 2 that were really awful. Hope all of you guys are enjoying the mild fall temps !
  8. Hang in there Sco. The one thing to keep in mind is that we are not pros. We are just average guys who love the game, and we all have these ups and downs. You'll come out of it.. Either by getting more frequent rounds or just by either figuring out whats going on, or getting a little help from someone you trust. Conrad: You are correct about the rangefinder. I am still using my SkyCaddie 2...lol it still works fine. A difficult course for is one with a lot of bends....either direction. Worked my fingers to blisters and fought it for 4 years and finally got a straight dri
  9. Played 9 four days last week. The two things i became aware of: #1: it really feels good to be hitting golf balls again. #2: The "Proper dress on the course" group on here would go crazy seeing what the younger generation are wearing while teeing it up ! I played on 4 different courses, and i saw tennis shorts, basketball shorts, muscle shirts, cut off jeans, and many many hats worn backward ! While I didn't care, it did make me think of the proper attire brigade on WRX !
  10. Wait until you go somewhere...another room...the garage...a store....and cannot remember why you went there. Happened to me last year. But since i was in a rather nice electronics store,i came home with a new Laptop !
  11. LOL It can get funny as long as you both have a sense of humor ! Conrad and Stu, get your john boats ready ! Thats a lot of rain!
  12. Hey Sco!! I'll join you in the 80's ! Haven't got any great scores in a while,but at least i am having fun again ! Shot a fantastic 88 yesterday ! Birdied the 1st,third, and the 7th.....we will not discuss the rest of the holes ! Fires in the west, monsoons in the south,virus flare ups in the midwest,...getting crazy ! every one stay safe and hope you can all get thru this stuff without any serious issues !
  13. Shot an amazingly enjoyable 43, irons only ! Thursday is the day i can do the driver as long as i don't get stupid by trying to swing too hard. Half speed only for a while( two weeks,i hope). temperatures are going to get back to seasonal normals starting friday. I do not think i will get into the "gender reveal" conversation, 'cause i am worse than Stu....i thought it would be "closet exiting" announcements . Hope you guys get out and enjoy the next six weeks or so.
