Played Heather hills in Plainville today... absolutely covered in leaves.... barely an attempt to even keep greens clear... kind of disappointing for $50.

Lost probably a half dozen balls in the middle of the fairway because of all the leaves. Not good

Biggest drawback to fall golfing, love the weather but ball location is a big problem. Happens to us the last couple weeks of our league too.

Crazy how the course looked a couple of months ago, greened up fast with the overseed, although seemed like a lot of the bermuda still present with the warm weather.

I guess no surprises at in store today. I didn’t want to see DJ blow his lead but I was hoping for a little suspense. Tiger’s 10 was painful and I was glad to see Rory making a little bit of a run. All in all I’m glad they were able to play the tournament.

Who hasn't been there.

Water, drop, water, drop, bunker, water, drop, green, two putt.

In my defense my home course has a par 5 that requires you to lay up twice before approaching the green. So 2-3 water balls isn't that strange.

Tiger also birdied 5 of the last 7 holes after that disaster 10. That’s the key takeaway imo. 

DJ has been lights out. I keep fading him and it’s burned me, especially in DFS. My boy Munoz played great as usual until an awful final round. Cam Smith was a sneaky pick, he came through big. 

Now onto the dead zone of Golf...

Lay up twice.....like off the tee, then again in the fairway?

Exactly. You have to carry 250 just to reach the second fairway. And then the dogleg is so severe that there really isn't a benefit to try and skip the first lay up.

Sounds like a par 7 for me.

I think the diabolically sneaky part is that the first landing area is actually angled short left to long right, so you better not have a hook. :cry:

Had an opportunity for 25% off TaylorMade clubs and went ahead and got myself an early Father's Day present. First new set of clubs in 13 years. P790s.

I already talked to the local fitter and they'll take the off the rack set as long as they aren't used and fit me to 790s and just swap the sets.

Awesome, you’ll notice a huge difference, will they fit you with a trackman? Shafts, even for irons are a big deal, they should offer you options. I ended up with true temper AMT Red, S300 for my titleist T200s, a little stiffer and lighter, I could feel the difference and allowed me to hit the sweet spot with swing speed, ball speed and spin Rates

I would also suggest if they use the trackman is hit a few with your old  clubs and then the new clubs, you’ll be 1-2 clubs longer, some of that is the lofts are usually stronger on the new clubs because you can hit them higher. You’ll really be happy with the result and it will help you club when you play with them.

Yeah they have trackman in the bays and I want to go through the whole process for shafts, lie, etc. 

I've only ever gone off the rack before and this could be the last new set for another 15 years so better make it count. :lol:

I've heard the 790s really can make the ball jump, so gaining a club would be huge for my game.

Nice. I’m thinking this could be the season I get fitted. Have to get approval from the home boss.

I’ll probably start the 2021 thread in March depending what the weather looks like. Almost there.

Non life threatening but the crash looks suspicious of being on something. Maybe pain pills from back surgery. Not sure why anyone with that kinda money and post surgery is driving imo regardless if he was sober or not.

That was my first thought too. Addiction is a bitch.

Initial reports indicate he was not impaired so that would be good news if true. 

I have also read that he was running late for a 7:30 a.m. scheduled golf lesson with Drew Brees that was being filmed.  Reports were that he rushed hurriedly out of the hotel just after 7:00 AM, that he was almost 1 hour away from his destination, and that speeding was a factor in the crash.

I read the same reports.  I would think his career in competitive golf would be pretty much done.

How a guy like that doesn’t have a personal assistant around him at all times taking care of scheduling, transportation, etc is mind boggling.

I hope he comes out of it okay.  I'd like to see him and Phil battle it out on the Senior tour for the next 20 years.  Even with a limp he can probably keep it interesting on the course.
