Okay, here is a place for the Golfers to talk about tournaments, clubs, swing help or thoughts.

Today is the Players Championship, which I think ought to be the 5th Major. Largest pot in the PGA. The daunting 17th, which seems to bring excitement every year. At least we will get to see Sergio blow up yet again.

I am ready to see some water balls!

I think my wife and I do really well for ourselves - but it makes me wonder what people do for a living to be able to afford spending a week at places like those.

We wanted to go to Pebble for our Honeymoon until I did the research and figured it would set us back nearly $10k for 5 nights and 4 rounds of golf each.

Then thought about Whistling Straights, and found we could do a week there for the bargain price of $8k.

That's what I love about a place like Deere Run - it's a tour track, and the most you'll pay is $95.
The prices are crazy. The closet thing I've done is go to Phoenix to visit my dad and play golf. Thing is he's cheap when it comes to greens fees. He has his house and his cart in the garage and he plays his neighborhood course. There's so many courses I'd love to play out there but he don't want to pay that much. Ocotillo is the best course he'll go play and it's decent but I want to play the TPC and stuff like that. He won't do it.

Apparently Sergio went Full Retard:

http://ftw.usatoday.com/2013/05/tige...hicken-remark/

Quote:
The ongoing feud between Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia, which started during the third round of The Players Championship, has taken an ugly twist. On Monday, Garcia told reporters in England that Woods hasn’t been honest in 15 years. Garcia was on stage at the European Tour awards dinner Tuesday, where he was asked by Steve Sands of the Golf Channel, in jest, if he would be inviting Woods over for dinner during the U.S. Open. Garcia’s reply was shocking.

Via The Guardian:

“We will have him round every night. We will serve fried chicken.”

Garcia later apologized in a statement released by the European Tour, saying that he did not mean the remark to be racist.

“I apologise for any offence that may have been caused by my comment on stage during The European Tour Players’ Awards dinner. I answered a question that was clearly made towards me as a joke with a silly remark, but in no way was the comment meant in a racist manner.”

This isn’t the first time a fellow golfer has made such a remark. In 1997, Fuzzy Zoeller referenced fried chicken as a potential meal Woods may choose to serve at the Masters Champions’ dinner, after he won his first green jacket.

I met The Fuzz back when he had an afro. He played our Pro Am. 1979 maybe. I thought he was jerk but I kind of like the older Fuzzy.

Thought I'd share for the stat guys out there. Found this spreadsheet for tracking last week, just in time to go out and throw up a 95 for the initial round.

Dude has one of the most unique swings. He lines up every shot on the hosel. Gives me the heebies just thinking about it.

I need a regular game. I could join the league at Deer Lake here in Spfd but they play the white tees. I like to play the blues. When I played Hickory Hills the other day since my dad plays the yellows I played the blues instead of the whites. I'm proud to say that at 51 working on 52 years old it didn't even seem long.

Seriously if any of the Spfdians read this and need or have a game I'm up for it. I'm a member at Deer Lake but I'd love to have a game at River Cutt or where ever. Hidden Valley. Honey Creek? I'd drive to Branson Creek......I'd be your guest at your C.C. and we'd win your member guest. Hell yeah we would!

Yeah he does line it up on the hosel. Start there and then try and hit it on the toe. A cure for the ..........I won't say it.

No, I don't believe so. We do have a Member Guest. Cool thing they are doing now, is if you play with a member it's only $30 for 18.

Short version....I am in very much in debt to Hamas Jenkins. Much reps shall be his, unless he prefers a bottle of some spirits which I would gladly send, or numerous beers should we meet in person one fine day.

Apologies in advance...longish version

Hadn't been able to get out and try this until last night for men's league...(3-man 9 hole scramble), but there is no way in the world it seems like it should have had that much of a difference. We had one in fair shape off of 1, so I thought, try it and just whack the hell out of it and see where it ends up.....BAM.....LONG and straight down the middle....tried it again on #2, again, LONG and in the middle, #3 par 3, #4 SWEET, #5 right side of the fairway, but I lined up that way just to see, #6 CRUSHED, #7 par 3, #s 8 and 9 my playing partners literally said, there's no reason for us to hit.

I don't know, this could possibly be a one-day fix but I'm super excited to get back out and try it again this afternoon.

My son and I just joined our 1st country club eva! We're really enjoying it. I've never been better than a 14 handicap and right now I'm about a 20. We joined for him (10 handicap) but I'm having fun too. They have multiple weekly games going on. I just won the Tuesday night skins game - even though I was about the worst golfer there. ha! I told my son that this was real golf - match play. That and getting hot at the right time.
