The Golf thread

What a shit time to start having insomnia. Fell asleep at 11:00. Woke up at 3:00 and then again at 3:45 and then ,4:00. Finally said to hell with it and got out of bed and took a shower even though I wasn't even supposed to be up until 5:15. Just had a cold slice of pizza and a bowl of BooBerry/FrankenBerry cereal and I guess I'm ready to start this golf adventure. I predict an early bedtime for me.

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Having a good breakfast effects the way that you play the entire round. Make sure that you grab a couple of hot dogs on the turn. :ROFLMAO: I see a low 80's round in your future.

It doesn't make any difference what we have for breakfast this morning here on the Maine coast. We are all going to die today. Just saw a report and those on Cape Cod are also going to die.

PS I made a tee time for tomorrow morning just incase I make it.

All I'm gonna say is that you were a few strokes off. 🤣 That was the toughest courses I have ever played. Our buddy played from the tips and he has a 269 yard par 3. It was 249 for us mere humans on the other tee box. 😂

What are they trying to prove? 249 is unheard of for a par 3 and I've played many courses in many different states.
The toughest one is 199 over water, just to intimidate, and that's at one of the 2 local courses that I play.
Maybe was a Sooner land claim.:shrug-n2:
 
THAT was a tough weekend. I don't care if I ever play at Jimmie Austin again but I was happy that my buddy got to play at one of his bucket list courses and shoot a great round (73). The second day was much easier. It was a bit of a culture shock. We went from a really classy golf course to somewhat of a hillbilly golf course that was owned by a casino. Dudes walking around in cut off t-shirts with their dogs riding shotgun. People just talking at the top of their lungs in what sometimes seemed like a foreign language with absolutely no regard for the people trying to tee off on the tee box next to them. I did play much better on Sunday but probably lost my cool more than I should have. I did manage one of the shots of the weekend. It was my fourth shot (first one was lost in the trees). I was 132 out with water right in front of me. I pulled out my 8 iron and proceeded to scald the shit out of it. As it headed for the water I let out a huge "FUCK!!" only to watch it skip cleanly off of the water, land on the fringe and then slowly roll straight for the cup. It missed by a couple inches and stopped about a foot past the cup but it made for an easy and exciting bogey.

LMAO. There is a hole at the course that I play the most. It's a double water hole. You hit over water from the tee box hopefully to a landing area about 200 yards. The the next shot is over the second pond about 135 from the uphill green.
I have skimmed the ball across that pond and have played who have triple skimmed over the pond.
I call it the Cam Newton pond, in memory of the passes Cam threw as a Patriot.

Start wearing cut offs and tank tops. Borrow a dog.
 
Just remembered that starting next Friday the Ryder Cup begins. I believe it's being played in France, which means that matches will begin in the early morning hours here.
 
I will record each match and have to remind myself not to check in the golf thread so that I don’t know what’s going on when I watch it afterwards.

The womans Ryder Cup thingy is going on this weekend. Us leads 5-3 after day one. Day 2 starts at about 2AM. Have to remember to check it out tomorrow morning before my 8:45 tee time.
Edit: They are playing in Spain and it's called the Solheim.
There are more players from Sweden than any other country for the Europeans. I wouldn't mind being the caddie for a couple of them.

As I've said, before, I tend to watch these European based matches on tape delay later in the afternoon after I'm done with my morning stuff. But my Wrangler is in the shop getting the steering box replaced (a shit show) and so I am faced with a morning country drive in a loaner Jeep Compass that I'm not interested in.

So so I'm watching.

Go USA!!!

The USA women have turned their games on! 12.5 to 10.5 with the USA in control of two matches to win the Cup.

It is theirs to win now.
 
The USA blew it. They had it in their hands and simply choked it away.

Tie goes to the current holder.
