72 holes in 2 days

6 posts in this topic

Talking with my wife Thursday night we decide to head to her folks in SE MN the next morning for the 4th. So I quickly call MaCalGrove golf course in Caledonia and get their extended twillight deal for friday afternoon (25 bucks, unlimited golf with a cart, tee time was at 1:00) I played 45 holes friday afternoon, yes the last 9 was the worst round I played, but my best was a 42 including 4 pars in a row (new record for me). I followed that up in Rushford the next morning walking 27 holes. 48,46 and a 54 (My legs, back and patience gave up that last 9)

I am completely overjoyed with my skycaddie gps. There were times I was firing at the green from the wrong fairway and it helped knowing how far away I was. My push cart was awesome on Saturday morning. No way would I have walked and carried my clubs for 27 holes.

Negatives: I seem to have cured my slice with a nasty hook, I think my problem is three fold: I pulled head up too quick to see where I hit the ball. Secondly I am not pausing (creating lag) at the top of my back swing. And "C", I am not releasing the club properly or making the clubhead swing out towards "first base" as my golf teacher tells me.

Man when I was swinging correctly, I was popping that ball, straight and true, and when I messed up, I really messed up....

Oh well, can't wait to get back out there this week. My kids (8 and 6) want to head out with me soon, I am thinking Cleary lake this week. they would have fun out there with that......

Just a review of my golf filled weekend

Picks! One thing i would recomend if you plan to get the kids started in golf is to take them to a pro for a lesson. AND ! Make certain you go along to watch! This will get them started off right with the basics, and DAD grin will learn too!

    • The very fact that these drugs are illegal keeps the prices so high, there is a huge risk for anyone dealing them so they need to make a boat load of money for it to be worth the risk. Legalizing things always brings down the prices and makes the black market $$$ not worth the effort.
      Considering the psychedelics are the most harmless group of drugs out there then by all means go for it. This is exactly what I mean when talking about legalization, public opinion in this country is so far away from the actual science it is kind of scary. Heck when prohibition was rocking pot was 100% legal here, just think about that for a second. There is almost no rhyme or reason to many of our laws you are a shining example of that.
    •   The "war on drugs", by which I take it you mean keeping them illegal (feel free to correct me if that is not your meaning) reduces the opportunity and raises the price for addictive drugs.   There are perhaps other policies that might work, but treating Heroin or Cocaine like ibuprofin doesn't seem like a good idea.     So, what do you mean by "end the war on drugs".   Go Colorado for "hard drugs"?   Treat them like California does alcohol (sold in every grocery store, and some convenience stores)?  Make them prescription?   Decriminalize possession of small amounts? 
    •     You judge everyone by their race and religion ?      
    • Years ago brother and I at our hunting cabin for a few days of grouse hunting.  Second morning we up and at 'em just as grey dawn settling down on the woods.  We hunted up and down the hills and through the brush and brambles seeking an explosive brown ball leaping skyward. Nothing. Not a feather seen. Later, after breakfast and chores ,brother sitting in the little outhouse with the door open,  enjoying the warmth of the sunrise and contemplating life in the woods when with a flutter and a cluck-cluck,  a nice big grouse landed on a small bush about five feet in front of the outhouse. Brother looks at grouse;  grouse looks at brother. They spent   time examining each other until my brother made a move and the grouse disappeared. We didn't see him around the place for the rest of our stay.   But we found some of his cousins.
    •   Uh, no. You have stated that people should prove their own claims. I don't have the time or the inkling to go through thousands of posts to "prove" it to you so I guess it's just fake news.
    •   Uh, no.   I believe I said that people should post attributions of stuff they quote.   
    •   I could post a certain song by Aerosmith, but I won't......    And yer dang right I'm gonna!
    •   1. He's one of those scary brown people 2. He's a scary Mooslim, not a god fearing Christian 3. Donald Trump sort of likes him.       How would I know? You're the one who brought it up. I thought you always said that it is the obligation of the poster to prove the facts that they post?
