Yeah, golf's known the world around for its egalitarian nature. .
Supposedly working, like the douchebags who post on Jo Momma from the office?

You're smarter than to believe that your once-a-year corporate golf event describes the entire golfing universe. At least, I think you are.

I reckon you're just flapping your piehole again.

I've met far more pleasant retired folks and *gasp* even car mechanics who enjoy the game, than I have "middle managers."

BTW, here's the mansion in which the world's number one golfer was born.

They're in there someplace covered with dust. Who wants to buy old clubs?

Make me an offer on a set of 1987 Pings.

been a golf nut for a long, long time. got down to a 3 handicap once. held it there for a few years. it does get in the way of a good ride sometimes. I'm playing in the 2nd tourney of the year tomorrow morning. finished 1st, the 1st time out a couple of weeks back. nice start on the year. hopefully, I'll be able to get a good round in and keep it going. this time I'm on my own. last time was a two person team.

the swing felt good yesterday on the range. screw trying to get it more upright I'm going back to my big controlled draw.


and waxie is right. most of the golfers out there are on muni courses; just a bunch of regular joe's chasing a ball around. we're on a semi-private course here. we're headed down the private path. our biggest bitch is the corporate outings that attract the once a year golfers.

I agree about the dead feel. They were a mistake. Yeah they're more forgiving but suck for finesse stuff and let you get lazy on ball striking.

The best irons I've ever had were Haig Ultra's with the drill through hosel. Forged blades are d' bomb.

That explains the pale complexion and multi-colored hair

Scotch is good when I run out of bourbon although I really like this as well

Would a young gun include Tiger or is he too far out? More rain today?

good weather forecast today. maybe an afternoon shower Tiger has had some strange holes. DiMarco is playing great. VJ is playing well and Lefty is hanging right in there.

speaking of driving ranges, time to head out and loosen up.
