    Nice work and thanks JDax.

    It’s always fun to read these.

    One quick note, it’s just Smiter now. Some say I chickened our but I prefer to say I went the PC route, lol. I also don’t use ProV1’s of any flavor anymore, and hadn’t for quite some time. No need to edit it though, ha!:)

    Let’s get it vortex!

    Posted from the course.

    You can wear whatever PJ’s you want roomie. Just so long as you wear some:)

    I sorta touch on @Pkorf 's advantage of knowing the greens with the "making putts" reference.

    Are you lulling us all into getting baited Smiter?

    Yeah I think my guy needs slotted up a bit. Little home cooking for him.

    Nicely done though. Should be a tight battle. I don’t think any team runs away and hides with it, and I don’t think any team gets boat races either.

    Mwaw? I would never. Anything outside of DFL will be fine, and even DFL will be fine. Fun it shall be! I’m trying to inspire confidence in myself to myself:) My Pardner is gonna save us anyways:)

    I just pointed it out because every time I play a new course there’s a couple shots I thought were good that aren’t and since I can’t read greens worth a dang, knowing which way they’ll break is a good thing.

    Feel free to throw me in any of the lakes there at any time, lol. I can swim, and at my body mass I mostly float anyways:)
