    Fairwaysplitter3320 (Nick)

    Sounds like FWS had an emergency appendectomy and spent a few days in the hospital. Posted he will be going home this afternoon. Thought those kind of things were for the "young pups". He is a grandpa, now, so must be at least 70, or so!! I'm sure he'll be back posting soon! Get to feeling...

    Can we have a U.S. Open Banter Thread??

    See most of us kicked Scheffler and Shauffule to the side. I will probably regret it. Both have been playing well. At least one of them will probably win the durn thing and make me regret leaving them sidelined. I'm stoked for this tourney!!! There is a pot full of players who could win...

    Dozens dead in tornado outburst

    Hoping AG is okay. He lives in Southern Illinois. Can't get the message thingy to work. Terrible night for the east central U.S. Seeing the devastation on tv is heartbreaking. Will be days before all the people are accounted for. Hold your dear ones close. One never knows if you will...

    Short personal note...

    Yeah, right! "Short" is impossible for me when posting. Wife had been suffering from some advancing neck pain for the past couple years. (She put up with this... ME... pain in the neck over 50 years. Had to get rid of one!) Found a great neurosurgeon about an hour and a half east of us...

    Reed wins again... but not without controversy

    Well, my buddy Patrick won another one. Controversy over a 'lift clean and place' on Saturday. Called the rules official over. Talked to the head rules official after the round. Those folks said he didn't do anything that should result in a penalty or DQ. Still, the commentators and arm...

    Sad, but true

    Our local golf shop was burglarized last week. $44,000 worth of drivers, hybrids, and fairways taken. Professional job. Front door lock cylinder removed and not found. Alarm was turned on the evening before, but was disabled by... assuming... the hit man. The videos did not show him going...

    Tommy "Two Gloves" Gainey

    Gainey faces solicitation charge after sting A pro golfer should be expected to need some "shaft" tweaking once in a while. Evidently, the shop he went to didn't have the kind of loft and lie gauge he planned on. Hope he wasn't late for his tee time.

    "Smash" factor

    A few months ago, I picked up a V-Series Callaway driver from a used bin. It was in pretty sad shape. Wanted it more for the shaft than for the head. There was a small "ding" on the sole, near the toe. Nothing structural or really even noticeable, unless you looked really close. I cut the...

    Tough day

    The young man who is General Manager at our course lost his older siblings when he was 11 years old. His older brother and sister were killed in an auto accident. He has always been extremely close to his parents, being their only surviving child. February 25th, his father passed after a...

    Extremely disappointed!

    Searched the web all day yesterday. It's supposed to be "Cyber Monday" where there are deals on EVERYTHING! Could not find one deal for a discounted membership to Augusta National. If anyone finds a coupon code or most anything where I could join Augusta National for a couple grand a year...

    Some days can be awfully rough....

    We adopted our Black Labe 2 years and 10 months ago. Just returned from the vet where we had to have her euthanized. When we met Abby, she had had a tough life. Picked up as a pregnant stray in Oklahoma and taken to a kill shelter. A local rescue brought her here. She had nine pups and we...

    2019 USGA Rules for Senior Golfers

    GOLF RULE CHANGES FOR SENIORS Rule 9.k.34(a): If a tree is between the ball and the hole, and the tree is deemed to be younger than the player, then the ball can be moved without penalty. This is so because this is simply a question of timing; when the player was younger, the tree was not there...
