re: 2001: a space odyssey, about the monoliths - 0jersey
I will give my 2 cents, which is what it’s worth. I have not read the books. My understanding is that the monoliths are tools for singular forever changing advancements in evolution of humanity. I understood the lunar monolith to mark the ability of humanity to create higher AI (as represented ...

re: Shenandoah #4 anyone else remember that hole? - 0jersey
I haven’t really used google earth much, but how would I be able to see the course this way? It’s currently updated with the houses. I worked and golfed there a lot in high school and was really bummed out they sold the course. So many memories there. ...

re: Getting a lesson next weekend - suggestions - 0jersey
Tell the instructor to keep it simple to one or two things. Preferably one thing to work on with the swing and one with proper setup to the ball (grip, Pre shot routine, lining up properly to the target with club face and feet etc). Also, see if he can take a video of you doing the move he wants...

re: Staying away from 3-wood - 0jersey
Get properly fit for a fairway wood (3 or 4 wood) that you can consistently hit. It may even be the one you have now and just needs a different shaft. There’s a saying that once you find a fairway wood you like and can hit, never get rid of it. Sounds like you need a different club. Just my ...

re: Golf destination trips - 0jersey
Thanks for coming back to thread for update. I’ve heard Tobacco Road is a love it/hate it type course. I also heard play was painfully slow there. What was your assessment?...

re: Golf destination trips - 0jersey
Well, Rock Creek is private and the guys had a weird hookup. We stayed at the CDA resort a couple nights which is definitely overpriced. The resort course is definitely worth playing once. The resort is on the water and you can walk around the Main Street of Couer D’Alene for food and shopping. ...

re: Enjoy this year for what it is - 0jersey
For the first time that I can remember I was able to watch a game and not really feel emotionally involved. To me, I was always in the boat that the powers were going to screw everyone and cancel the season. So, I am just glad to be able to watch LSU. We were fortunate enough to have one of the...

re: Golf destination trips - 0jersey
We actually didn’t. Heard it was good, but we ended up playing the Coeur D’Alene resort course (did you know they have an island green? Inside joke), Circling Raven and Avondale. We had 4 of the group able to get onto Rock Creek and they said it was one of the best courses they ever played includ...

re: Golf destination trips - 0jersey
Love this topic and meant to reply earlier. Pinehurst is on my list to try, as is Whistling Straits, Streamsong, and Sand Valley. We still want to hit St Andrews and The Cabot courses too. We have been fortunate to do Bandon (return in 2021!), Pebble/Spyglass/Spanish/Poppy, I also hit Pasati...

re: Whose played Troon North Monument course? - 0jersey
I’d try and pass Stadium course and hit Gold Canyon Dinosaur Mtn, Quintero, or Sunridge Canyon instead. All are superior to that overpriced subpar course. Either Grayhawk course or Troon course is also superior to TPC. You’ll have fun regardless....

re: Cabo golf trip - 0jersey
GI beat me to it, but I saw Cabo and came to post Quivera. I’d love to play it again. It was windy AF but it was fine bc it was so damn hot we welcomed the breeze. It is Spectacular. Also, we didn’t get to play the really high rated Cabo del Sol course though....

re: Was at Kiawah last week - wow - 0jersey
We had a trip planned at the end of March. Thanks Covid. My buddy went a few weeks ago and said it was good, but that all the pro/golf shops were closed. He also said he expected the greens to be much much faster....

re: Doing anything special to keep your stamina up in the heat - 0jersey
We hit a new record in AZ today at 116 degrees. I’ve played the last 3 days in a row and it has been really really hot and dry. I think I could do better with getting more food, but I can verify for certain that liquid IV is a game changer. This is the first summer I’ve used them and they wor...

re: Mallet vs Blade Putters - 0jersey
My thoughts are that you should really try and get an in depth putter fitting. You can get fit for a club that you will not have to replace and that you will use more than any other club you buy. Proper fitting allowed me to learn that using a line on my ball was counterproductive to me aiming t...

re: Favorite putting drills? - 0jersey
I would ask what do you consider a medium range putt? For long range drills 20’ and longer I will place a few balls at 3-4’ intervals extending out the distance. The goal of the drill is to have the putt finish between the balls having each subsequent putt finish past the previous putt but not p...

re: Big setback today - 0jersey
First of all, that’s golf. Everyone has these types of days. Personally, as I improve and have solid to fantastic rounds I foolishly believe that those rounds instantly become my new normal. I then start thinking of what I need to improve upon to go lower from that point. The reality is that ...
