Dan: Compliments to your pro and your diligent work ethic at the range.

Your follow through is very Ben Hogen like. 8)

For a lesson in never giving up, tune into the Jay Leno show on May 4th.

102 year old Elsie is going to be on, as the oldest verified hole in one producer ever. Happened a couple of weeks ago, and she needs an agent. She plays 5 times a week, and is a little emberassed that it has taken her so long for a hole in one.

Hey,

I'm the opposite. Shot 47 on the front today. Had a few beers. Shot a 38 on the back with a 7 on the 18th hole...

Why is it called golf?

SH^T , F*&^ and God damn it were all already taken...

Thanks Jarhead....I'll put May 4th on the calendar.... ok, I confess...that's BH hitting his 1 iron to win the 1950 US Open - a little after getting hit by the bus....I'll be in Fort Worth in May...going to check out where he lived and the range at Shady Oaks Country Club where he hit those millions of balls...I only hit 300 today.....Yes, I have a bunch of BH clubs...some from the 70's....kind of a devotee, but I'm not dangerous or anything... Here's a link to the story on Hogan's swing secret as told by his long time caddy after BH's death...cup your left wrist...run your right knee at the ball....and don't forget to open your left hip OKLib!

And as it's served it's purpose (exceedingly cheap laugh), I'll help bury it. (inspired me to keep up the treadmill workouts though, I'll say that...)

Re: your photo: Dang. nice...erm...*finish*. But wouldn't she have chafing issues in that? Well, to each their own. And I will remember to keep my left hip (which I like to think resembles Natalie Gulbis's...a little...if you really squint...) open.

Worked on short game today in class--I can hit a tolerably good chip shot for a newbie, though my consistency still isn't where I'd like it to be...Oh darn, I'll have to keep hitting the range after w*rk. I gotta say, this game is addictive. I see many hours and dollars spent in my future.

I used to razz my niece and nephews - the Navy wouldn't give them their officer's commisions until they learned to golf.

Absolutely mandatory for 'an officer and gentleman/persons.'

heh heh heh heh

Actually that's better than the Navy bases that start with the COs quarters, then the XOs quarters, then the big decorative anchors and if there's anything left over they build some docks.

Nearly eight years at training commands... I became an expert at digging loose change out from behind sofa cushions.

I'm happy to report that after over a decade of bulldozing & rebuilding Hawaii's Pearl Harbor-area base housing, they're just about finished with the enlisted housing and beginning the officer housing. Of course they started with the senior officers first, but now they're getting to junior officer places that were built right after WWII.
