Hmmm, that might disqualify some of my "adult" golf buddies. 🏌🏌

My variation to this ... if you are teaching friends or relatives/family members to play golf, you must give an etiquette lesson before the person takes to the course.

Good to hear there are still opportunities for kids

I played well today and my team won again. I'm taking the rest of the week off while I'm ahead. It's suppose to rain the rest of the week anyway.

not yet, I'm getting them Friday


I had one big drive yesterday, I carried the left bunker on 5 (i.e. no draw).


I pared it from a downhill lie in the rough from 90 out.

I think that bunker is 240 carry from the blue tees. You can look on google maps.

Looks like a nice course; lots of elevation changes. The 18th green looks pretty small from above; probably looks even smaller lining up an approach shot from the other side of the water.

Beautiful course and very difficult. Yes 18 eats a lot of balls.

Watching Valspar Championship. DeLaet's caddie is a member at my club who I have played with a couple of times. Graham needs to make a few puts!

Graham played at bsu and plays crane creek every now and then. Yes he needs to get the flat stick working.

Home course (rating 71.8, slope 131) is finally fully open after the wet winter. Shot two 82's last week. Hit 7 greens one day and only 1 the next. Also, definitely 10 yards longer with the driver, maybe the winter weight/core work is paying off. Told my buddies that I don't want to get too optimistic with the quick start but I did admit that my goal is to get the index back down to 6.0 (currently 8.3). Nothing like making a goal public to keep you focused.

I sort of like his look... but that may because I was "that bearded" a couple of times in my young adult life. In fact, I bet my in-laws really didn't care for that first Christmas photo with DD#1. Anyway, I root for just about any golfer who is gutsy enough to buck the clean-shaven stranglehold on the PGA Tour.

I agree as the vast majority of the pga is so cookie cutter. gets kind of boring.

Heck, for a minute I thought the Taliban had somebody playing on the PGA circuit. I like the clean cut look. Just call me old fashion.
