re: Tony Finau sprains his ankle celebrating par 3 contest ace - Frugal
Got those two and a matchup of Tony with Xander Schauffele. He doesn't seem like the kind of guy who would drop out of this tournament. The elevation change out there is going to be rough on that ankle. Hoping he doesn't pull some Tiger Woods knee injury heroics. :cheers:...

re: Las Vegas golf - Frugal
Check out Paiute golf course, it’s about 20 minutes from Vegas. Pete Dye design, course was in great shape last year. Wind really picked up in the afternoon which according to the starter is pretty common. Used rental clubs that trip, the course had Taylor Made equipment. Would play it again....

Neck pain/ headache from bench press? - Frugal
A week ago I was finishing last rep on bench press and felt a “pop” near the back of my head followed by intense headache at base of skull and upper neck. Headache is positional and is less intense when laying flat. Had an MRI of head to rule out anything vascular, results were normal. My fo...

re: 2016-2017 Season long ski thread. All are welcome. - Frugal
If it's your first trip to Jackson take advantage of its great lift served terrain. You seem to be a reasonably strong skier judging from your previous posts. I'd personally take the tram up and spend my time exploring between the sublette and thunder chairs. The Alta chutes, hoops gap and paint bru...

re: What kind of sand for filling in lawn? - Frugal
I used masonry sand for brick mortar with good results. Its free of pebbles like sharp sand for mixing concrete. You are correct with sedges being an issue. The sand introduced several patches of it through the yard. However Image herbicide worked really well at getting the nutsedge under control...

Balls Cajun seasoning has replaced Slap Ya Mamma and Tony's at my house. Not sure how far they distribute from LC but it's worth picking up if you're ever in town. Seems to have a finer grind to it than other seasonings....

re: What is the Darrell special? - Frugal
Quality has really gone downhill. When Darrell first opened the place I was told they cooked their own roasts and the bread came from Pouparts in Lafayette. It really was one of the greatest sandwiches I've ever tried. Had one recently (probably 10 years since the previous one) and it was grocery s...

re: Another day, another golf thread: what ball do you play with? - Frugal
If you really prefer the feel of a Pro-V but don't want to pay $50/dz look into the "practice" version. These aren't x-outs, I would wager you couldn't tell any difference between it and the real thing. I have tried several other brands and currently like the Bridgestone 330s....

I've had the open repair. Pain really wasn't that bad after a couple of days. Regarding open vs lap I know of 2 people who's repairs failed and both were performed lap. If your surgeon is more comfortable performing it open I wouldn't try to change his mind. You having it repaired in Houston? ...
