Welcome. I've been at this game for 3 yrs. now and I only get more into it. You are a truck driver? I drive for a Moving Company but just a 26' Freightliner. Glad to have you aboard. Hit 'em long and straight.

The first step is to admit you have a problem, the second is to infect everyone around you.

Thank you all for the nice welcome.
Ezra, yes I'm a truckdriver.
I own a 2000 Peterbilt 379exhd w/ 63" standup sleeper.
I pull for Barnes&Noble out of Monroe, NJ.
Your job sounds too much like work,
I think I'll stick with my "drop&hook" gig!!!

Last fall, (2005) My dispatcher asked me if I wanted to join him and some others from B&N for a round of golf.
Now I've never played before and didn't own any golf equipment.
He had a extra set of clubs for me to use.
I have no idea what my score was, although I'm sure it was VERY high, but I had a ball!!!
And the rest is history...

I had a starter set of Ram clubs and about 3 months ago I was able to buy a brand new-never hit set of Cobra 3400 i/h irons and M-speed driver on ebay for $400.00.
I also bought an Oddessy 2-ball srt putter.
I still have my Ram #3 & #5 woods and #3 iron-wood in my bag but hope to replace them with Cobras at the Golf Expo up here in Febuary.

I've been taking lessons with a PGA pro and he says I have a very natural swing.
But I have a looooooong way to go.
Played both days last weekend.
Shot a 114 and 123.
I need help in ALL areas of my game!!!!!

But, I'm still having a ball!!!
Leaving today for Lady Lake Florida, The Villages, for a week of golf with the in-laws!!!

Everyone have a wonderful Christmas and New Years!!!!!
