    I havenít played enough to see my early rainy season spike show up too badly in my HC. Probably playing more 12ish than 10ish but Iím so inconsistent any given round I can look like a 5 or a 20. ďOtherĒ score avoidance is something Iíd like to see more of. Had an eagle putt on a legitimate length par 5 from 20ft one hole Sunday. Then I took a 9 on a short par 4 a couple holes later. It wasnít even a risk reward hole. Tee shot OOB then took a 7 from the re-tee.

    The struggle bus came through and I hitched a ride. I then threw the driver out and I captained that puppy for a bit!

    Weaknesses: Tight courses. I can be a bit of a sprayer. Will lose a ball or 3 per round. Take too many risks. Can make 4 pars in a row and then completely forget how to golf for a couple holes.
    I feel that you and I could have wrote each otherís descriptions out, lol. Well except the putting and chipping part. Iím not very good at chipping and Iím not a bad putter but seeing the line, I really struggle. Iím actually a little terrified of Firestoneís greens, wont lie.

    Youíll hear a sigh of relief from me every time I have someone on the same line as me but a little further.

    I would guess the greens will be a bit faster and likely roll much better than what most of us are used to, especially with the wet spring some (or all) of us have had.

    And Vortex, joking description aside, when my game does show up Iím pretty straight. My buddy jokingly calls me robo Hoosier when I get on a good roll with my driver. Normally a slight baby draw. Not that my earlier post wasnít accurate, it just may have sounded worse than reality.

    By the way, are you a Hoosier (IU?). I'm a Boiler.

    I did go to IU South Bend for a bit but thatís not where my degree is from.

    I am a Purdue fan, and two of my nieces and sister in law all graduated from Purdue so thereís that! I may have visited the campus a few times, Iím not sure I recall entirely, when I knew people down there. Triple x is good late night if I remember correctly. Either way itís a small world for sure.

    Well my performance enhancer is a few beers and a cigar. My cap is too many beers. Usually play middle of the road but this year has been a struggle. Haven't broken 90 yet so my 15 is playing around 20... More rounds to come to determine where I'm at. Strengths have been short wedges and putts and 3w the fairway. Driver is getting close.

    Played 9 today. Then hit the range for some iron work and the 3w/driver work. Still leaking a bit right (more of a push than anything else) but the distance is eye popping better than it was a month ago. Crazy what a little tweak will cause.

    After the range I spent a good 45 minutes hitting from right lie pitch shots. 20-45yds. Note to the group. If youíre not used to really really tight lies (crazy short fairways that are sandy based) get ready.....cause Firestone fairways are puuuurrrrreeeeee beauty
