Got Everybody's golf last night, love it. I leave Saturday for two weeks, but I'm down for some online games when I'm back.

3:24p tee time. Getting out there before 1p so I hope to get out earlier otherwise there is no way I finish. Based on the routing I would probably play 1-14,17 if I don't get out early.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Was in Target and saw some Nike 20XI-S balls from 3 years ago maybe for under $20. Probably not even a good price but hey it is 4 piece urethane.

These things are absurd short game spin monsters. I can't remember the last ball I have played that spun as much as these and was able to launch them low off the wedge. Like I had 105 from a good lie in the rough down wind to an uphill flat green. Came out so low I thought I thinned the hell out of with a 80% gap wedge. Get up expecting it to be over the green and it stopped like 3 feet from its pitch mark.

Not sure I need that much spin as I landed on a slope and spun one back 20 feet when I didn't need to. Awesome on rock hard greens though, probably pick up another box to have for scrambles.

They sound so weird off wedges though.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Been tinkering with a stronger grip...I like it, especially on drives. Seems more consistent so far.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Mostly the left, but a little with the right, too. Saw something on golf channel and I'm trying it. Basically, you're trying to get the "V" between your thumb and fore-finger to point up towards your right shoulder with both hands.

The two rounds I've played with it - and only tried it beforehand on the range before the rounds - were pretty good. A lot more consistent. Straighter...It just feels "stronger" too...like I have more control of it.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Interesting. The vast majority seem to have grips that are too strong since they are trying to compensate for a slice. Not many that start out too weak.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I never slice it...I'm a left hander playing right-handed, so if I miss, it's a pull.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I guess I better get out and play Friday morning. Almost assured my course will be closed for several days after to drain and cut down some trees.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I support the cutting down of trees, better for air circulation and making my life easier.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I remember playing in Florida once when a tropical storm was rolling in, gusts were probably up to 50-60 mph. Tons of balls were falling out of the palm trees. So that's another nice side benefit.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

Been watching some Youtube vids lately by a guy named Mike Malaska. Guy is a fantastic teacher. Probably the best explanation I've seen about what the club should feel like it's doing on the downswing. Highly recommend, really a light-bulb moment for me.

He's got a ton of great ones but here's one I found really helpful:

Interesting. Hope I get to a range and try some of that out. Have not had a "A-ha!" -moment in quite some time, those are great. Then again they often require effort heh.

I'm pro implants. Not necessarily for what they are, but what they stand for. They do a good job of saying 'hey, I'm here to party!', and that's what I like about 'em.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

I would have only needed a uniboob here as the storm was way less than expected. Only minor tree loss on the course. Guessing it's gonna take a LONG TIME to drain so I "hope" I can hit the links by the weekend. I have a tournament a week from tomorrow I have to prepare for too.

Lift clean and cheat, we have winter rules up here, you just need hurricane rules.

Look at it this way, you can finally play the famous "island green" at sawgrass now.

Not only is the green smaller now but you have to swim to it while avoiding alligators.

The whole course got completely flooded during Matthew, if I remember correctly. This is a piece of cake.

Re: MISC/RANDOM/BS Golf Chatter Thread

First time with a club in my hand in over a week. In that time I think my handicap skyrocketed. It was a struggle on the range today. I'm playing tomorrow and Sunday before my tournament on Tuesday. If need be I guess I will HAVE to play Monday too.

Here is the tree we lost about 100 yards out from the first tee. Makes the visual of the tee shot waaaay easier.



I also heard we lost a big tree to the right of the 11th tee box. Can't say I'm sorry to see that one go.
