Shriners

5 posts in this topic

played bluff creek today and was stuck behind a 4 some of shriners.....probably helped me more than hurt me. I was walking and their slow pace made me slow down and take my time, which didn't always help.

I lost 3 balls today, but thanks to the shriners pace of play, it allowed me to lock in the hubs and retrieve 10 golf balls in a ravine. 4 of which were new prov1's and a couple nike plantinum ones. I'll trade a couple NXT's for that any day.

The bunkers were scarey looking, not from dificulty but the courseness of the sand and being extremely firm.

Shot of the day was a wind aided 3 wood off the tee, 267 yards. The driver was hit and miss today as well. Oh well, more things to work on. I have found a short game though, only 33 putts. My Clicgear cart and SG5 gps have really been fun to use this year. The gps really helps when you are playing from the wrong fairway. Tomorrow morning the pot of coffee will be on extra early and extra strong since I missed the opening round of the Open

I had a similar experience at The Ridges at Sand Creek in Jordan the other day. We had a 4-some ahead of us and it helped me to slow down a little and at least think about my shots.

Heading back out there this Sunday with my son to play another round and get ready for next weeks league play.

Lep,

After playing hockey with you, I didn't think anything could help your shots! smile

Just had to get another shot on the old hockey years didn't you? grin

Sure I was a scrawny 5'11" and 135 lbs dripping wet back then and my slap shot needed some work, but the collisions into the boards were sure fun.

Now I'm an inch shorter but 80 lbs heavier. If only I had this build back then.

But in all seriousness, my golf swing has improved over last year. My typical drive is 250 with an occasional smack to 300+.

Makes me kind of nervous with guys like Picks talked about infront of us. I've learned to be more patient and allow for people to leave the fairway if they're within 350 yards.

Good for you. I stick to the ice since I never learned how to hit a drive straight. With my slice you didn't want to be on any of the three fairways to right of where I was driving.

    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
    • jobs and better paying jobs.   that's about it for me.  Sure there are some perks, but I'd give it up in a second if I could come close to matching my income in Grand Rapids. What sort of field are you in?   Anymore it's all indeed, monster, or some sort of online service.  Maybe a recruiter can place you in something, but it might be a sucky job.  I went to a recruiter a few years ago and they could put me a job in a few days, but it was sort of on the edge of my field and the job sucked.  Still, if I was in a pinch, I'd do that in a heartbeat over sacking groceries.   Nobody reads the newspaper and C-list is for sex work and scams.
    • Thanks for the advice, we do know the areas that we like have liked in the past. Cities is a vague reference as most people up here call everywhere down there the cities. We would be looking at the west metro area or nw suburb area.   Job on is the big thing right now ideally my wife could take a few years off to raise our boys as typically the "cities" pay is more than up here.. I have been looking but what is the best way? Indeed? Newspaper? Clist?   We we are a good distance in a way but we are close to our families. When we get company we get them for 3 solid days. Also once we had our twins it was more so they could see there cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents more often than 1-2 times a year.
    • The gdp is right around 18 Trillion Dollars.   Ten years of that, including even a little nominal growth is north of $200 Trillion.   So you are talking about 4.5% over ten years.     And that is assuming that these economists are able to forecast accurately.   We had other economists telling us about the "multiplier" where a dollar of government spending increased GDP by way more than a dollar.     I didn't believe them either.
