    Zaphod Goes OLD SCHOOL

    Took my new (old) clubs out for their first round today. Shot an 40. 5 bogeys, 3 pars and a :beach3: birdie. These hickory shafted clubs are kinda fun to play with. All put together via ebay. Requires a smooth swing. The more you force em the more they go off line. Feels somewhere between a...

    Arrgggggg The golf gods are cruel

    Last year I could draw the ball just thinking about it. Today I hit 150 pw shots. All high and either straight or a cut. I was trying to draw them and the closest thing I could get was a dead pull. What concerns be is a high cut pw may = a fade or slice as I step into longer irons and woods...

    Avatar movie

    ok ---since others have resisted I will break the ice. I went to see AVATAR 3d version and loved it. The plot is adequate and predictable. Think "Dances With Wolves". But I did not care!!!! The visuals were spectacular and the movie feels good. The audience applauded at the end. A adventure...

    News Flash --Packer offensive line now fixed

    The Packer offensive line has been more than a SIEVE this year giving up 20 QB sacks in 4 games. A blocking sled would be more effective. Anyway they resigned Mark Tauscher (last year's right tackle and THE Packer right tackle for 9 years) to a one year contract. He is coming off an ACL...

    ssmokin-WBL--Sand is your friend!!!!

    Yo Dudes, Played Arrowhead today and finished birdie/birdie. The first bird was the par 5 17th. 500 yards with bunkers protecting the front of the green. A good drive and 16* hybrid put me in the trap with about 12 yards to pin. Nice lie --fluffy sand and perhaps 6 yards of green to work with...
