    I agree with you. There is no reason to take that long on shots. I'm afraid slow play is going to ruin golf just like it has baseball--at least for me.

    Did you notice DeChambeau's opponents fell apart when they had to play in his twosome Saturday and Sunday? I think it's because

    he takes too long to hit his shots and his putts. That would drive me absolutely nuts if I had to play in the same group with somebody overly technical like him.

    I was even par after three holes today, but then began playing terrible golf. Fortunately, I was able to figure it out with about

    five holes remaining on the back nine. I was swinging too hard. Apparently, I instinctively began doing it because I was playing with some really long hitters. Once I figured it out, I began playing much better golf and our group won the front, back and 18 in the three-best-ball format. I also...

    I witnessed a memorable event on the golf course today. It was my last day of vacation and I played with three retired friends of mine.

    Most people who have met me are shocked when they discover I am 67. They usually think I am still in my 50s.

    I witnessed a memorable event on the golf course today. It was my last day of vacation and I played with three retired friends of mine.

    One of them is 78 years old and went 39-39-78 to shoot his age for the first time. Meanwhile, I shot a 44-46-90. I'm only 67, so it will be a while before I even have a remote chance to shoot my age. I really hope I can do that and get a hole-in-one before I become too old to play golf.

    Anyone want to pay my green fees tomorrow?

    I came close to getting my first hole-in-one this morning. It was a 143-yard par 3 hole and my tee shot rolled right past the hole. I made my 3-foot putt for a birdie.

    Tiger Woods was 11 over par this week.

    It's better than how I played in our club championship this past weekend. I had a 91 on Saturday and an 87 on Sunday for a total of 178. That's 34 over par, by the way. I don't want to make excuses, but I have been having lower back problems for about six weeks. My wife was having to put my...

    I played my first round of golf in about 11 days tonight. The reason I haven't

    I used to be able to put my palms on the floor without bending my legs, but not now. I have extremely long arms and short legs just like my father did when he was alive. People with long upper torsos tend to have back problems.

    My hamstrings are my biggest problem. No matter how much stretching I do, I can't relax them.

    I played my first round of golf in about 11 days tonight. The reason I haven't

    We no longer have a dog. Our fourth golden retriever since we got married in 1976 had to be put down a couple of years ago. If we ever get another one, the two of us will need to retire first.

    I played my first round of golf in about 11 days tonight. The reason I haven't

    Thank you! It does feel better. I still have a shooting pain, though, when I try to put my sock on my left foot before having the opportunity to stretch first. My routine is to get up at 5:30 or earlier, put on the clothes I wear around the house, go outside to get our morning newspaper and then...

    I played my first round of golf in about 11 days tonight. The reason I haven't

    been playing is because I injured my back. It felt great to get out and play once again. The greens were super quick because they hosted the city tournament Saturday. It also was the first time I have used my new push cart. It is a newer version of my other Sun Mountain speed cart and I...

    Anybody buy weed legally yet?

    I just copied and pasted something I read on the internet regarding the legalization of marijuana in Colorado. Here it is: According to the new report by the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area entitled “The Legalization of Marijuana in Colorado: The Impact,” the impact of...

    Anybody buy weed legally yet?

    My understanding is the legalization of weed has really hurt Colorado from a financial standpoint. The owner of an investment company told me that about a year ago. Personally, I hope it never is legalized in Indiana because a lot of people already are caught with both weed and stronger drugs in...

    Hurricane = no golf

    Just walk so you can break wind while you play. I already played 18 this morning and plan to play another 18 on Sunday.

    I had a weird round this morning. I hit all seven fairways on the front nine and

    That means you were only +4 on the other eight holes. In other words, you would have done well in match play.

    I had a weird round this morning. I hit all seven fairways on the front nine and

    Which course is doing that? It might be due to the coronavirus.

    I had a weird round this morning. I hit all seven fairways on the front nine and

    According to golf etiquette, a foursome has priority over a single or twosome on a weekend. In other words, you don't need to let them play through as long as you're staying up with the group in front of you. I teed off at around 8:15 this morning. I was by myself because nobody else wanted to...

    I had a weird round this morning. I hit all seven fairways on the front nine and

    I really like it because my drives go about 20 or 30 yards longer with it.

    I had a weird round this morning. I hit all seven fairways on the front nine and

    hit six of nine greens in regulation, but still shot a +5 41. On the back, I only hit three fairways and hit three greens in regulation while shooting a 45. I had something like six three-putt greens today.
