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!

    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!  
    •   I just can't help myself when I look at Boober's goodies!!!      Wait....did that sound right?
