    I can golf again !!

    As most of you know, I had both knees replaced this winter. (right-10/28, left-12/9) I saw the surgeon this afternoon and he released me to play golf again! The snow has melted here and a couple of courses have opened up. I'm not sure if I will get to play, but at least I will find a driving...

    Tiger doesn't look good

    Tiger didn't look very good in the interview with Jim Nantz. Maybe too many steroids for his back?

    I'm back !!

    I've been off THP for a couple of weeks due to having my left knee replaced. I am happy to say that the surgeon said that while it was a tough surgery due to the sad shape of my knee, it was successful and I should make a full recovery. I have never felt that type of pain before. I have had...

    Work anniversary....yours ?

    30 years ago today, I walked in the front door of this building. Little did I know I would be staying here this long. 3 more years and I will walk out and retire. How long have you worked at your job ?

    Smoke on the water

    The wife and I went for a jet ski ride this weekend. But with all the smoke that blew in from the forest fires and the air quality turning "Hazardous", we only stayed out for an hour. This is my wife making her "high speed" run. ;)

    Rules question....

    I played in a tournament this weekend and the group in front of us had an interesting event and I would like to know the proper resolution and penalties if any. Here is the event. Player A was on the tee box. Player B drove a cart off of the cart path and slighty forward of the tee box with...

    Kudos to 59Belts !

    While I was going through some old Twitter notifications last week, I saw that I had won a contest with 59Belts https://59belts.com/ way back around Christmas. So I sent them a tweet asking if the buckle I had won could still be claimed. They came back right away with an answer of yes and...

    Would you rent this instead of a cart?

    These little beauties just started being rented at my home course. The rental is $26 for 18 holes. I saw a few of them on the course this weekend and they look like fun ! Your own carry bag fits on them or you can use one they have in the clubhouse. Complete with drink holder and clubhead...

    San Diego golf schools ?

    The wife and I are going to take a week vacation and head for San Diego. We want to go to a 3 day golf school in that area to improve our games and celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We attended the Kapalua Golf Academy for a 3 day school to celebrate our 5th anniversary and it really...

    TopGolf Swing Suite

    There was an announcement here that we were getting a TopGolf in town and I was completely thrilled to hear that. Then there was the letdown. It's not a full TopGolf, it's something called TopGolf Swing Suite. It looks like nothing more than a simulator to play the TopGolf games. Another...

    No more caddie alignment help - LPGA

    This has always been a burr under my saddle, but seeing this announcement this morning made my day a little brighter. Golf Channel's Randall Mell..."If you're an LPGA fan and never liked seeing caddies line up players before a shot or putt, you can rejoice." "This week's season-ending CME...

    Golf around Chicago

    The wife and I are making a trip to Chicago for her birthday in 2 weeks. We want to play some golf but we don't want to pay Whistling Straits prices. Any suggestions ? On another note for that trip. What is it like to drive in and around Chicago? We've never been there and don't have a clue. We...

    Rules question....

    While watching the PGA tournament this weekend, I noticed Jordan Spieth on a couple of occasions reach forward with his putter either on or near his line and tamp down on the green. I assume this is to knock down something sticking up. Isn't this illegal ? I know you can fix ball marks but that...

    What's your favorite aphorism ?

    Like the title says....what's your favorite ? One of mine... America is a country which produces citizens who will cross the ocean to fight for democracy, but won't cross the street to vote.
