I got the best gift. I love to golf. I have brown golf shoes. I wanted a brown golf glove to match my shoes. I couldn't find one. My sweet wife bought a white glove, took it to a leather shop and had it dyed brown to match my shoes. I suspect the dye will wear off quickly because I sweat like a mo fo. But what a thoughtful gift. What did you Dads get?

I got a round of golf at Missouri Bluffs (one of the best in the state), a couple of shrts to play golf in and a new gas powered weed eater. (I don't think my wife intended for me to take the weed eater to the course with me. It would have come in handy yesterday on a couple of holes.)

I got an Orioles hat, The Departed soundtrack CD and lots of good hugs from my little girl. Just by chance, yesterday turned out to be one of those days where she wanted to spend all her time with Daddy. Needless to say, that was my best Fathers day gift.

Weed eaters and chain saws should be allowed on the course.

My little gal gave me a new Barbie doll. One of her friends ruined the Barbie that I use when she and I play Barbies. So she bought me a new one. That and a card she made at school.

Lol, good story. A man can learn a lot from a daughter. How to play Barbies, how to use barettes, which color socks look best and how to properly fold them over, which princess goes with which movie.........I know things today that just a few short years ago I never intended to know.

Started off as a bad Father's Day for me. I did get to sleep in a little bit which was nice. But, no golf - which is all I really wanted. We took our oldest son to see the "High School Musical" play over in Wichita. Which, let me tell you, was not something I was going to enjoy.

But, I knew my son loved it, so I sucked it up and went. I was kind of in a foul mood until midway through the play, I looked at my son and he had a HUGE smile on his face singing along with the actors. Brought a smile to my face and I forgot about everything else.

I didn't really get anything for Father's Day, which is ok. I like gifts, but I'd much rather have them make me a card and allow me to spend the money on them than to waste it on something for me.

Ended up being an alright Father's Day.

Good for you. I think the definition of a good Father is knowing when to suck it up.

I got some nice homemade cards. Although I need to work on smiling more two cards had my different "faces" and mad appeared on both FIRST. Of course happy, sad, laughing, etc., showed up by mad was first.

I have some work to do on my moods and what the kids see!

Got a very classy card from my wife and another cool card from my kids which made up for the handmade cards. It had HERO on the front.

I enjoyed several rounds of slap-jack, war and go fish with the kids while watching some of tv and hanging out in my room.

My wife made an excellent dinner (as always) and I enjoyed a few bottles of Boulevard ZON.

It was a good day - I love my kids (all 5 of them!).

Hah, that's a quality fathers day shirt. Grandkid's hand prints AND barbecue sauce, that's a garment for a manly man.

My wife and kids bought me a Nitro bass boat, took it out Sunday for the first time with my 13 year old son and christened it by landing a hawg off a buzz bait. Taught my son how to use a baitcaster and showed him how cast into a tree or two. Also how to fix his own backlash. To many to count.
Greatest day ever!!!

Nope. My wife just had to convince them that they couldn't do this AND fix my AC. Since the AC requires replacement and will run $1000 (car is blue booked at $1500, yeah right), the stereo was the right decision. :D

To put it in perspective a little bit, my 8 year old can drive the ball 75-100 yards.

Oh. That would explain the audience (again). He only hit one that far, mind you. The rest were all around 75-100. That includes the roll, right? He tried his wedge this time, too. Took a while, since he'd only hit his driver, but he liked that it went up higher.

He's really having a good time, and so am I.

I'm pretty consistently around 230/240 with 0 - I repeat ZERO roll. I bet I'm one of a very few that can put backspin on a driver.

Don't tee it up so high. It's the answer to everything. :)

Is it? I've never been quite sure how far he should be able to hit it. I've always been impressed, but I've never known how he compares to others his age.

He's in golf lessons now. Some of the other kids can hit it that far as well, so I never knew if he was doing well or doing what he was everyone his age - or nearly everyone his age - could do.

I've always been impressed, but maybe that's because I can't hit a damn straight shot with my driver.

It's freakin' crazy. The ball will hit the fairway and just stop. I get like 2 yards of roll. Pisses me off. I think a lot of it has to do with my natural slice that I can't get rid of.

I would think at 8 you should be looking at his swing more than his distance, do you think? Also, consistency. Can he consistently hit it 75 - 100? I can only judge from what I see at the range. What I see, 75 - 100 for an 8 year old seems pretty good to me. Imagine how good you would be if you could have hit it consistently clean at 8 years old. I would be on tour (I wish :) ) But, as I'm sure you know, just make sure he's having fun. I have a 9 year old daughter and as much as I've tried, she doesn't give a shit about playing golf.

As long as you can keep it in the fairway. I recently gained a few yards by trying to keep my lower body quiet. I imagine I'm standing in a barrel. As soon as I make my full turn, I pull the trigger. It's helped me quite a bit with my slice. And I need all the help I can get.

His swing seems decent to me, but he always tries to hit the ball to damn hard.....like his dad. He has a smooth stroke which is what I've always watched and which is why I probably felt he was doing well. Not a lot of stutter or "stopping in the middle of his swing".

I used to have a banana slice......left side of the fairway to the right rough. I used to aim left. I slowly worked it out by moving the ball in my stance, moving my club face, trying different things. I know I can hit the ball straight because I did it last year....this year, not so much off the tee.

Funny thing about golf.....I hit off the tee terribly all day today. On 17, I drove to about 155 out, deep rough, behind a small tree with no real clear shot at the green. Normally a 7/8 iron, I pull out my 5 because it was pretty buried. Some how, I put the thing within 2 foot of the pin. I didn't even see it until I got up there.

I was a watch whore a few years back. I about $10k in watches for a while (which is nothing). I still have the Rolex - which I never even wear. My daily wearer is Tag Heuer Link that I love. The others are more practical, cheaper watches.

You should name him Spalding. That way, when he grows up and becomes a major leaguer, he won't have to autograph so many baseballs.
