    Nice weather this week- who's golfing?

    Besides the resident pros and those fortunate enough to live at, like...Pinehurst, any working stiffs out there playin' a little hooky this week?

    I am.

    Not sure about the course, but I'm definitely gonna hit the range soon. I need to work the kinks(most likely just add new ones) out of my swing before I embarrass myself for real

    I will play on Thursday and Sat. I shot 80 last Thursday. It was my first 18 holes since November...I'll take that. I actually drove the ball great, I missed some greens and had some bad chips. The short game is the first to go and the last to come back. I normally shoot between 74-79ish, so 80 was not that bad. It's been a long,cold,wet winter. We need some heat!
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Re: Nice weather this week- who's golfing?

    Finally, some nice weather.

    I am one of the resident pros and this weather has been killing us. We were something like $40,000 down in March and we're way down in April as well. Fortunately, for me, I've been giving quite a few lessons.

    As far as golf, I get to play 18 each Monday in tournaments (36 at NCR next Monday....I can't wait for that). And I'll slip out for 9 holes here and there. I'm going to try to play 9 on Thursday and maybe a few more later this week.

    Haven't golfed yet, but the fishing's been solid.

    My sticks are still out in the garage underneath the porch swing.

    Tempting, but not going to happen. IMO.

    Played Monday and Tuesday. The local muni lets me go out on the back nine just before all the early players make the turn. It's pretty nice- I can hit 2-3 balls, practice chipping and putting, repeat holes if I want. The only downside is having to go to work afterwards.

    I haven't had a chance to do any yet this year. Maybe that's why I have been so mean.

    I have to drive a ways to get to any good fishing spots. That's part of the reason I haven't done much of it the last few years.

    I played last Tuesday afternoon and went to the range on that Wednesday. I'm planning on going Friday as long as the forecast holds up!

    Re: Nice weather this week- who's golfing?

    I just got home from hitting the range, inspired by this thread

    I actually surprised myself a bit by not being completely awful! I need to find some more consistency in my swing, but I wasn't pulling the ball as much as I normally do. Actually hit a few great shots in there too!

    A question for the golf pros... How common is it for someone to hit their irons much much better than their woods/driver? I find and have found myself hitting my irons longer and more often than not straighter than my big stick. The longer part is what I find to be odd.
