  1. They're a bunch (word not allowed).... Ignore them or send them pints next time and end of story. If you were playing with your regulars, buy them a round next time out. Usually the club has a HIO fund or everyone pays for HIO's during the year.
  2. Anyone saying 3:30 is too fast would be asked to leave our foursome..... 3:30 & we wonder why we were so slow.....
  3. Here's Banff Springs from a trail we were walking.... And Grey Wolf in Panarama BC..... 170 Par 3 6th over the canyon...
  4. Exactly the same with me. An early riser and thus I want that first tee time and 3:00 hour round some talk on the patio/clubhouse (hopefully 2021) and then on with my day. I do play a lot (late April-October) and a 25 minute drive each way. Nice to have the day ahead of you when done. Twilight works too when nothing planned. Really the reason I joined a private club.
  5. As said this year was unique, but I so value Pace of Play and every round is different. I often play better (if not stuck on a 5 hour round) playing elsewhere. It's just about hitting shots and knowing the yardage. Yes local knowledge helps too. I expect 2021 will be similar, and if the trend continues & courses are packed, I won't be looking to play elsewhere, unless invites.
  6. Maybe I'm a creature of habit. Dues here are not cheap and I really value pace of play and we have a good group that plays together. Friends outside of the club are not golfers for the most part, so no big deal. We play two different decks and throw in others every once in a while. With COVID-19 as said there were no invites to other clubs, courses were jammed and no charity scrambles or usual tournaments. As a 13.2 HC (actually went up this year) I'm not lighting the course on fire, and shots are always different, as are pins. Helps that the course is r
  7. Yep COVID-19 had a lot to do with it, but something I've never done. Granted since becoming a member play 80% of rounds at my course, but this year not a single round elsewhere. Courses were jammed, long rounds, higher prices, no invitations or charity tournaments, and other private clubs had restrictive guest policies 'til at least July or later. Was perfectly content and always happy to play my course (as love it and great conditions), but wondered if anyone else has ever done that?
  8. Okay I do know my swing is slow and I am a short hitter. Bought the Tour Edge Exotics EXS. SHould have bought the 10.5, but got the 9.5. Have moved the 9g weight to the front as I hit it straight and no real issues with slicing, though I hit a fade. Increased the the loft to 10.5t (N+)..... Hitting it a little better, but want to tinker more.... What settings should I try with respect to the lie? So here are the options, but no explanation as what it the best adjustment. What does U+ mean? Thanks,
  9. Okay I've read only page one, but from the OP, it is obvious he is beating himself up as a multisport athlete and thinks the game should be easy and shotting in the 70's. Too much thin king, too much practice, too many videos and instruction. Stop worrying about your scores and just play good holes. Take a mulligan and re-tee the ball. When in the bush, put it in a decent postion and see if you can get it out. Play shots from the fairway and only care about the good holes, good recoveries and who cares about the blow-up holes. Too many people (especially here) are just too engrossed in the
  10. Gone for at least one day...... Some improvement & will see what tomorrow brings. Left some shots out there and would be nice to get a break or two every once in a while......
  11. I'll probably remain a slasher. Too old to start over.... Yips on chipping is a real issue (between the ears I imagine). Yes practice, practice, practice...... What I have not done, which I often do is head out late in the day with 2-3 balls on my own.
  12. I will never be a good golfer & no not one to practice or go to the range. I like hitting the ball, playing 18 & lucky to be a member & get out quite a bit during the May-October golfing season. No I will not drive it 250+ or be a wizard with the flat stick, but started to feel pretty competent by the end of 2019, shooting low/mid 80's, making few mistakes and generally working my way around the course. This year once we started posting scores in June, my HC is going up and up and no idea what to do. I have too developed serious yips on my chipping by the green (40 yards in), ofte
  13. Geez pros do that everyday. Absolutely nothing out of the ordinary. I looked at your HC too and really talk about a non-story. I had 2-3 weeks of the yips on my chipping. hitting consistently 10-12 of 13 fairways and a short hitter so often chipping and once by the green, lucky to get it on within 20 ft..... Seen my HC go from 10.3 to 13.7. Add to that played two rounds recently & hit 1 GIR over those two rounds. And now you'll tell us the course you play has a 135 slope????
  14. Thanks, About 155 uphill and there was a little dew on them. Tells you how random the game it. I tee it up 2" left, the hole 6 inches closer or the blocks a foot forward and it probably drops.
