  1. Thanks, but I already figured that one out! Trying to avoid that one more thing to think about it -- seems odd that Bushnell has the function and Garmin does not.
  2. My new Garmin S12 tells me the time of the round (for example 3:42) when I "end" the round on the watch. But is there any way to check the time of the round during the round without ending the round? I had this feature on my old Bushnell and its incredibly useful to ensure we're keeping pace by checking time elapsed at the turn or every few holes. I've read the manual and played around but I can't figure out how to do it in the S12
  3. Thanks, just ordered an MG to give it a try. Under $10 is a sweet deal.
  4. I like the fit of the FJ StaSof in a Cadet medium. But I'd like to find a les expensive alternative to try. Any recommendation for a Cadet glove that fits like the StaSof but costs less?
  5. In match play, A believes B is sitting 3. A says “that’s good for a 4”. B quickly pockets his ball and says “Thanks but actually that was for 5”. Had A known B was sitting 4 he would not have conceded. Isn’t the correct ruling that B is in for 4 because A is an idiot for not asking before conceding? In other words, there is no “conditional” concession even if A makes the concession explicitly conditional, B knows A is mistaken and the condition is not met, and A would not have conceded absent the mistake. btw, I’m the idiot ?
  6. They are getting pretty worn down after a decade - the 60 in particular. Very apparent visually and in play I find I can't stop or spin like I used to. Not that I was ever the spin doctor but I was able to stop them pretty quick. I'm getting more roll out without, I think, any change in swing or course conditions.
  7. I really like my CG14 56/11 and 60/8 steel shafted wedges, particularly the 60 which is what I play out of the sand 95% of the time But they're over 10 years old, with reasonably heavy use, and I think its well past time to replace them. My head is spinning with all the options. I'm a 13-15 handicapper (drifting up unfortunately), 60 year old, generally play on firm fairways and firm sand. I use my 60 a lot - 65 yard fairway shots, flops around the green from both the fairway and the rough, and sand. I don't take divots and I typically open my 60 all the way coming out of the sand. With
  8. No question that I would play PB (or RO) again rather than SHP for all of the reasons stated above. And, to be clear. I toned it down a bit for public consumption and not to offend the many SHP fans. The only thing that would change my mind is if you were a huge Pete Dye fan and you wanted to play one of his courses in honor of his recent death (seriously, some of my buddies would do that - I wouldn't). Can't speak to Jovita South as I haven't played it.
  9. Thanks again for all this info. Plane landed Monday at 12:25 pm, grabbed baggage and a car, made it to Southern Hills Plantationon Monday by 2:00, course was empty, played by myself, finished in 2:40. 36 at WW on Tuesday - group of 4 on Pine Barrens in am, finished in 4:00, played alone on Rolling Oaks in the afternoon - marshall asked if I minded starting on 10 to avoid a couple of groups, I agreed, and played with nobody in front or behind me the entire way other than a 4-some that jumped me at the turn but nicely let me play through after 1 hole - finished in 2:40 even playing a few pract
  10. Thanks. Southern Hills looks great. Looks like every tee time is open on the half hour - which is kind of weird. Do they really only send out groups every 30 minutes?
  11. Awesome info - thanks. Looks like it hasn't rained in a week or so. Question -- if all my timing works great, would you recommend heading straight up to World Woods vs trying one of the other courses. Variety is nice but if WW is a better course (conditions, lack of houses, pace of play), the extra 30 minutes may be worth it.
  12. Landung ar TPA next Monday at 1230. Allowing for baggage claim, car rental, and possible delays, looking to squeeze in 9 or more holes before sunset. What is best/decent public closest to TPA? Ultimately heading north to World Woods later that night but a bit of extra drive time is fine. Thanks
  13. Thanks very much. I think I'm going to take a different path and go to Tampa and play the two courses at World Woods. Seems to fit the bill best for the most golf in a limited amount of time. Streamsong looks awesome but (i) the extra 30 minute drive time will make the last day (flight day) round pretty tight to airport and (ii) the cost differential is massive (particularly considering the only halfway decent place to stay at Streamsong is the resort which is really pricey). So, if everything goes smoothly - twilight round at Pine Barren on arrival day, PB and RO the next day, and eithe
  14. I have 2 days to play golf in Florida in January (tuesday and wednesday). Hoping to play 36 on Tuesday and 18 Wednesday (early at place reasonably close to airport). 14 Handicap - pace of play, course conditions, and scenery (absence of houses a plus) most important (in that order). For the 36, don't mind playing the same course twice but would prefer a place with two nice 18s. Torn between these two cities -- love to hear opinions on which city has better public courses, as well as specific course recommendations. Cost is a bit of a factor (was thinking Bay Hill for the 36 but that looks like
  15. I've been dealing with HR in both big toes for almost 20 years. The guys pushing rocker soles have the right idea. The X1 brace works ok in protecting the toe but is generally uncomfortable throughout the length of my foot after walking 18. The key is to find a good pedorthist, take him/her your favorite golf shoes (wide toe box is key to avoid compressing those bone spurs) and have him/her pull off the sole and add a rocker precisely where you need it (generally a function of examination /measurement). Makes walking 18 very doable for me when it would be literally impossible in regular go
