Re: The Golf Topic

Went out this morning planning on playing 27 holes. :D The first 18 was okay. A bit erratic wit the irons, but managed to recover consistently with the short game. Only hit 1 par 3 in regulation. :censored: as I seemed to develop a case of the pulls on the others. Escaped with an 84 which is livable...

Re: Discounts?

It has been confirmed that there will be NO 15% off promotion for Father’s Day this weekend or at a later date in June.

What happens moving forward remains to be seen.

Re: Liquid filled watch case: How I modified my Kingfisher C6

I think one might have an issue trying this with a Super Compressor.

Re: The Golf Topic

The second day of the 2 day club tournament has concluded. Although our play was better than yesterday, so was most everyone else's. We finished mired in 10th place although we did play at 5 under par today. Two bright spots was a 50 foot double breaking uphill putt to for a birdie after a crappy ap...

Re: Trusted Seller

The TS badge is as small as we can make it for this application. The loss of the forum rank for all but the Admin Team and those with special ranks, such as missF, is unavoidable due to limitations of the software. However, as AVO mentioned, we were able to keep the post counts. Several options and ...

Re: The Golf Topic

The first day of the 2 day club tournament has ended. The weather was great...the game not so much today. Things started well as I hit par on the first 3 holes. My partner went par, bogey par. We were off to great start. Then the wheels fell off and everything suddenly became a struggle. Scrambling ...

A two day tournament starts today. What do I wake up to? Pouring rain. Oh well, perhaps the the greens will be a bit more receptive. [-o<

Re: The Golf Topic

We play a Match Play format. Handicaps are used and adjusted for 9 holes. For example: If I am a 10 handicap and play an 8 handicap player you take the difference and divide by 2. This means I would get 1 stroke on the hardest hole of the 9. If you win a hole you get a point. if you tie (net) no poi...

Re: The Golf Topic

I wish I could drive a ball over 250 yards on a regular basis. My average drive is about 220 yards. I play on courses, and use tees, that are usually about 6100 to 6500 yards. I have never hit a 300 yard drive in my life! Twice I have hit drives over 290, but those were anomalies. I am content to ta...

Re: The Golf Topic

I was on on a roll yesterday. Had my low round of the season at 78. Pretty consistent as it was a 39 both out and in. Irons weren't so good, but short game was the savior. It was a bit of a strange round from a statistical point of view. Hit 13 fairways, but only 6 GIR and 3 of those were par 3's! I...

Re: CW 8 watch collectors case

I have several and have used them for many years. These are storage cases and not display cases so the lid does not stay open. The cushions are a bit on the smallish side, but offer good protection when a watch is mounted on them. Never had an issue with a damaged watch on the couple of occasions I ...
