    Here's some pics from our Shot Talk Open for Wisconsin and almost Lyle. We missed his presence, but we had a great time. Left to right: Fitzpatrick, Warbirdlover, sssmokin, Zaphod's son Eric, Mike1218, Wi-Golfer, and Zaphod.
    Sling.........notice how much better this group dressed for this year's event.

    If anyone remembers our last year pics............I'm sure you noticed how much weight zaphod has lost (and how much sssmokin has gained). Zaphod is half the man he was last year............(size-wise only.........LOL). Fitzpatrick took some good course pics.

    This was a NASTY course. Very tough. The team of zaphod, wi-golfer, mike1218 and Fitzpatrick wiped out the team of zaphod's son Eric, sssmokin and WBL. WBL and sssmokin held Eric back but it was a fun day. Jake and Elwood looked good, don't you think? :D

    The young guys (Fitz, Eric and mike1218) really can hit that little ball. Zaphod's no hack either. I guess that leaves sssmokin, WBL and Wi-Golfer as the hacks. :D But we did hit some good and important shots!! :)

    Glad you guys were able to make it happen. Looks like a good time was had by all.

    I remember the cargo shorts from last year.

    BTW - in the 4th to last picture, why is WBL trying to thread the ball through that gap in the trees? The green is to his right.

    The green went all across, and the pin was on the left side. Also, WBL still has that eye problem, and can't see where he's aiming.

    Yes but....

    Blue line = aiming at the green.
    Red line = WBL's aimline.

    EXACTLY...............only he hits it further right than the blue line when aiming on the red line.

    Ankylosing Spondylitis must SUCK! It's a tribute to your brother that he can strike the ball as well as he does with the physical difficulty he has to deal with.

    Geez you guys. I had already HIT that shot and it was right ON the pin BTW... :D And no beers because this course is on the "Baptist Assembly" land.... (But everyone except Mike1218 had a few after at the restaurant in Green Lake)... :D

    Yeah.........on the pin but 40 yards short of the green (just kidding.......it was right on the fringe in front). Everyone had a few beers after at the restaurant............except me. I had VODKA/tonic.

    Always been owned by the Baptist Assembly.......BIG BUCKS. Big beautiful houses, big motel, big expensive everything. A Baptist "retreat" I guess you would call it. $88 to play 18 with a cart. Bag boys load up the carts, clean your clubs..........1st class all the way. Have to enter through big iron gates and get ticket from gate guard. Kind of like something Michael Jackson would own.........LOL.

    Looks like you guys had a great time. I definitely need to make it up to the great white (wet?) north for one of these events. I would love to play with you guys, it looks like you had a blast.

    Oh, and I almost never drink beer while I'm playing unless it's business golf and the others are drinking. It messes up my timing something awful. :laugh:

    After the round though, bring me a cold one and keep 'em coming. :D
