Hybrids and 2 putts are boring. Wonít apologize for it.

    Took next weekend off to burn my vacation time. It's supposed to be between 55-65 all week and sunny which is a nice surprise this time of year. Hopefully get 3 or 4 rounds in.

    Looks like the weather may cooperate and I can get both rounds in this week. May ever do two next week.

    Re: In need of some golf tips...

    Gonna play nine Sunday morning with my brother, who I haven't golfed with since Father's Day.

    He's so much more athletic than me, it's sickening. I'm a better golfer, but he could easily be better than me if he took it seriously for a year. I'll enjoy it for the time being, but I know whenever he catches the bug, he will outpace me very quickly.

    Didnít you play college football?

    We play with an ex NFL receiver who plays all the time, and I never feel like he has that much of an advantage over me and the D3 and NAIA athletes in our group.

    My brother who has some D1 offers for baseball and soccer sucks.

    I did. My brother is an insane athlete. I was a pretty good athlete and a pretty good football player. My brother is awesome at basically everything athletic that he does. He was a college baseball player, all-state in baseball during HS.

    Nothing new, but raw athleticism doesn't necessarily translate to golf, especially those who went far in their careers. Most of those people don't pick up golf until they're done playing.

    Re: In need of some golf tips...

    Gonna have to disagree Mitch, most athlete types (especially baseball played like my brother) have excellent hand-eye coordination which is a critical part of the golf swing. If he only played golf his whole life, I'm confident he would be a scratch golfer. He isn't great because he never plays and has 25 years of baseball swings engrained in his brain

    I’m sure there are exceptions, but pitchers and good free throw shooters seems to make the best golfers. Repeatable motions.

    Also, hitting balls as a kid helps. I was taking lessons when I was 7. Took 31 years to figure things out, but there is something to banging balls as a kid that stops you from looking like Barkley as an adult.

    Hockey players are typically good golfers as well.

    Heading out this afternoon. Probably going to freeze my butt off. But golf, right?
