I hope you don't live in BC, unless it was cancelled for being to perfect.


Calgary

Did you hear about the hailstorms? That was the same time we were supposed to be teeing off.

Love golfing.I have an old Wilson Deep Red D, and an Adams golf Speedline 3W and Adams golf Tight lies iron set 3-LW. I try and get out at least 2 or 3 times a week if I can get it out of work. I live in Kamloops so there's a plethora of good courses to play. Shot an 86 out at The Dunes last weekend and have a tee time at Rivershore in a couple hours :D

If anyone is looking for or taking a trip to Cabo, Mexico and wants to golf check out this site: http://cabogolftours.net/ . They set up 12 of us for a week, 6 rounds, 3 courses and set us up in a villa. Great rates. They can handle your travel too, but we did that separately.

So I really suck at golf - still looking to 'honestly' break 100. But I love it.

One thing I have really gotten good at is remembering the good shots. (probably because it is such a short list:lol: :( )

Tried a new course this weekend. Beautiful course. My best shot was after a reasonable drive on a par 5. I drove the ball over 200 but the ball landed with some trees in the way for my next shot. They were about 40 yards in front of me. I was able to shape the ball (or just use my natural slice) to get the ball around the trees and advance it about another 200 yards with my 3 fairway metal.
:towel:

I won't say how I finished the hole because, like I said, I really suck at golf. :(

I have never really golfed before. I have been to a driving range, but pretty much don't know what I am doing. Anyone have any suggestions on how to learn/where to start? (i don't have any family or friends near me that golf)

If you want to be serious about it - get lessons.

Big win by Oosthuizen at St.Andrews yesterday. Another name to add to the list of top-notch South African players.

I feel pretty good about my pre-tourney prediction though. ;)

Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!

my pre tourney predictions (I always take 3 guys): Westwood, McDowell, and Rose

Crazy how Westwood is 3rd in the world now, if he made some more putts in round 3, I think he would've at least challenged Oosthuizen a bit

Never golfed and it shows.

Played a 18 hole game (work sponsered) last week. Didn't know all the etiquette and stuff. I probably had about maybe 5-6 good swings/puts the entire time. It was a fun 5 hrs. I think I'll take it up since my bro gave me his old set of clubs. Maybe take some lessons so I won't suck as much.

Already a thread!

Anyways, I like golfing a lot myself. Sucks when almost all your friends suck at golfing and you're there saying, "I suck too" while hitting the green on your tee off and while their golf ball sailed 3 holes over.

Usually shoot between 100-110 on full length courses. 72ish on par 3 courses. I've been at this level for about the last 4 years. I never hit my woods because I'm terrible with them so my 3 iron is 'my driver'. Love the sport though.

My low this season is 83 and it dropped my index from a 16 to a 13, and I've had trouble playing to my index now. Funny thing today, I'm a lefty and for fun I like playing right handed. I can hit a 7 iron about 100 righty, and 165 consistently left handed. I took my buddies sand wedge and was just playing around the greens, and chipped in on my second attempt ever right handed from about 20 feet :P

Yani Tseng, 3 tournament wins in 3 weeks, legitimizing her number 1 status. Clutched up and shot a 66 to win by 6 strokes in the final round too!

Of course, it isn't a real golf thread without more John Daly mentions:
John Daly

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. -- John Daly is going multimedia. He now has a TV built into his golf bag.Daly has signed up with ProBagAds.com, a new company that installs flat-screen monitors on a golf bag to display advertisements, much like an electronic billboard.

The screen rotates with Daly's various sponsors.

He says it only weighs about three pounds, so it's not a big strain on his caddie. And while it looks like a TV, Daly says he's trying to make it work like one. He says he will be able to program it through his mobile phone, and he hopes to get his home television programming on there. Daly says when he plays golf overseas, he wants to have something to watch on TV -- especially during football season.

Kyeong Bae first used the built-in monitor last year on the LPGA Tour.

Mike Weir loses his tour card after shooting an 77-85 at the Honda, which is too bad, but time for Graeme Dalaet (When he's healthy) to become the next great Canadian golfer.

Martin Kaymer's number 1!!! Soo awesome, Machine> man :P
