More important is the score....guys talking about their 77, 81 over the weekend...They get in a tournament and shoot 92.
These are the same guys that claim the 300 yard drives day in and out. I'll take my 250-260 drives and my 83 and put it up against most of these guys that claim to be the 20...

Good range session today - sneaking out of the office early tomorrow to play 9. Playing Saturday as well!
Most importantly....I held for the first time a Scotty Cameron putter. It was nice...going to roll a couple with it tomorrow. I might be hooked....

I have an truckload of term life that will run out when my kids are finishing their college education.
I also have a whole life policy for 100,000. It is not much but it will get me buried and I'll have it no matter my medical condition going forward.

I stunk it up at tpc la today. Was embarrassed to be out there - short game was crap.....long game was crap...putting was not too bad...
.....up to black bear this weekend.
Will probably shoot 79 to make up for my disastrous round today.

There was at least one smaller pool closer to the front that was nice.
The tennis courts on the back were money as well....

The food at Popeyes is soooo good...but the service is soooo bad.
If they updated their marketing approach and had a fresh, crisp appearance, there would be no Canes in Louisiana....

I like the course....but am no pro golfer. I could see where a pro would look down on it. Many of the smaller items that are taken care of at a high end club don't happen at TPCL.
