Great idea right?

Have lots of pictures, but here's probably the most dramatic:

this was funhouse golf for me. fairway 200 feet below and big sweeping right-left dogleg. for me, that begs hitting a huge hook that stays in the air for 10 seconds. but yeah an ugly takeaway either way.

as it turned out, i started the ball on the right edge of the fairway and it hooked into the left trees. thought it would be easy to find the ball because of the steep slope back towards the middle of the fairway, but never found the ball.

That bottom pic of the driver impact made me go back to my driver-swing video and see if the color combo matched my Harrison Mugen Prototype that I have in my D2. I haven't seen anyone else with it yet. I love it btw.

Also, your pics are sweet.

Re: ***Official Golf Pic Thread***

quoting pics clogs up the thread, so i'm not gonna do it and hope other posters don't, but UCB your second pic is great form. I look at that and think you are getting every last bit of potential power out of your swing.

Thanks.

I always joke with my friends that driving distance should be measured in yards per pound and not total yards. I am about 145 soaking wet and carry the ball around 285-290. My other friends who hit it similar distances have about 25-40 lbs on me.

It's how us small guys flex our muscle

Here's another one that I love, just a good follow-through:

Realise it doesn't really show you much but I was mucking around with some HDR on the iPhone and took this one of my buddy performing his standard reaction after missing a birdie putt...

Obviously we were the first out on the course that day



Another one looking out over the bunkers to the right of the 1st...

The Reserve at Lake Keowee:

one of the most legit par 3's I've played. It's like 240 way downhill with a boomerang shaped green and junk all in front.

Great pics UC. Looks like you have a hell of a move.

I played in a charity event in Bedford, NY at Glen Arbor yesterday and there were a bunch of pictures taken. Beautiful golf course. If any good pics get sent to me I will post them.

Sweet pics Alex.

2nd pic look like the guy is on the wrong side of the teebox (since you can't see white tee marker), lol.

Course looks badass though.
