    In the golf thread? I would expect to only get one response.

    It is a wonderful sport. I used to play everyday in the summer and school holidays before I moved away for Uni, havent got to play much in the last 6 or 7 years, but it is a great sport.

    You do understand this is the golf thread don't you brother Nick :idk:

    I love watching the majors. This was a fun one. I never cared for Sergio either but he deserved this one.

    Very kind :) Tho sadly more of a watcher than a player these days. Now I have moved back to NI I shall try play a few rounds with my dad - we used to play together a lot, was pretty much the only "bonding" thing we ever did really.

    This is the club I was a member of - http://www.castlerockgc.co.uk/

    First let me give a great big GO **** Yourself to Direct TV for ****ing up the contract with CBS. Yup one of the best Masters in recent history and I couldn't watch it while I was working at my Bar becasue of Direct Suck.

    Anywho.........I am so glad Sergio pulled off the win, it was frankly long past due for him and he deserved his Major and the Masters title. Kudos to you Mr. Garcia!

    I do find the non stop commentator masturbation over Augusta dull. Its pretty - but so are dozens of courses, especially Pebble Beach.

    There are three courses that I want to play if given the chance and two of them are obtainable:

    1) Augusta
    2) St. Andrews
    3) Coeur d'Alene

    Great list.

    If I could only play 1 hole as a pro? The 16th at Scottsdale would be pretty damn cool!

    Those stands always blow my mind

    I played the blue monster at Doral. Actually i lived right across the street and played all the courses there. They had four back then. Red , Gold , Silver and the bad boy. Only played the Blue once and it kicked my ***. The rough is about 3 inch deep. Good luck if you miss the fairway :)

    The Augusta course where the Masters is played is only a 2 hour drive from me now so that would be my dream game of golf if only i know a member.

    If I had one par 3 to play in the world it would the 14th at Coeur d'Alene

    Oh and those mother****ers sitting behind that 16th in Scottsdale might want to clear on out if I decided to blade one lol. They'd be looking at a missle to the face!

    It would be the people far to the right of the green that would need to worry if I was hitting the ball. Have always had slice issues

    Royal Portrush is one of the best courses in the world and it is about a 10 min drive from my mums house. However, due to a lack of local infrastructure, hotels etc it hasn't held a big tournament in about a century. In the last couple of years a lot of investment and work was put into supporting the course and The Open will be held at Portrush in 2019.... its all very exciting

    I think brother Nick learned a valuable lesson. You can mess with the jocks and football know it all in the main. You can even mess with the socialist and alt right posters in the POFO but never mess with grown men who get their kicks beating the **** out of a little white ball for four hours on a weekend

    Those guys are nuts :lol:

    Played outside today for the first time here at home. Had an awful front 9, working out the bugs, but came around and shot a 44 in the back, which I'm thrilled about for my first round.
    Also, my bud went to the Masters, and brought me back this flag for my golf room..

    1st night of golf league last night. Weather was good. We did have a few new members to league this year. Tony was new and played with us. On the 7th hole he boomed a perfect drive except it trickled off the fairway right at the end. When we went up we couldn't find it. We eventually kept going toward green and found it almost on the green. The drive ended up being about 350 yards with wind at his back. Unreal.

    Sounds like my friend AG's son who is 6' 3 ' and 260. He's not that good at anything else but driving where he routinely out drives us by 40 - 50 yards

    We estimated one at over 350 yards just 50 yards short of the par 4 green. He ended up with a double bogey after a sideways chip then another to the fringe before 3 putts :lol:

    Fish I absolutely hate that stupid little ball........I mean every time I have a driver in my hand I want that ball to designate. It represents all of my life problems rolled into on single round object that I want to smash over and over and over again and my driver represents the instrument of destruction that I will use to obtain my goal.

    Yeah I've hit those bombs out to 350 yards, drove shorter par 4 green before and generally can be on any Par 5 in two.........however those few glorious moments pale in comparison to being 300 yards two fareways over or under the trees down the side (I think my best shot of any club is the 3 iron stinger lol and that shouldn't be).

    I'd trade it all for 250 and straight any day but I am too ****ing stupid to layoff my driver which is why I'll never shoot par and always be at best a guy who shoots a 39 and usually shoots a 45.

    Tried TopGolf yesterday. It was way over rated. Glad the vendor paid because it was $30-50 per hour depending on the time of day. Ball felt heavy and you had to adjust your distances accordingly. The computer scoring was OK. Really expensive driving range. Wouldn't do it again.

    Golf league last night. I hope I didn't piss off one of the new guys. He was leading the fore some with 3 holes to go and I just had to bring the scorecard into play. He wilted quickly under the pressure and my buddy won the round. He said he had a date with his wife after and left quickly. Just a little trash talking. :lol:

    Shot a 44 with 4 pars in 30-50 mph winds on Tuesday and beat everyone in the league. Was in a groove. One shot I was 155 out facing strong cross wind. I used my 200 yard hybrid and aimed to middle of pond that was left of green. Crushed the shot perfectly. It went over the pond then wind pushed it right back to front of green. I was still 20 yards short. My 200 shot went about 135 in that wind. Unreal.

    Finally made a damn putt. For the longest time I have been missing everything over 10 ft. Last week I sunk a 15 footer to save bogey on the last hole. Then this week I sunk 3 more in a row on the 5th, 6th and 7th hole. Of course it all came to and end on 8 when i missed the 7 foot birdie putt. It was nice to finally make a few. Had 14 putts on the round.

    Funny how things go from good to bad. 14 putts last week and 21 this week. It all averages out eventually.

    Playing in the Robert McKenna golf scramble on Friday. Was supposed to be last Friday but the tropical storm dropped 4 inches of rain on us that day. Been going to this tournament for about 10 years on the vendors. Lots of fun and nice dinner afterwords.

    Did not play well on Tuesday. The only saving grace was I chipped in from about 30 yards off the green for a birdie on one of the par 4's. Raining today but we'll try again this weekend.

    Been getting out about every Sunday for the last few months and can finally see the game coming around. The short game and the putting is starting to sharpen up....which needed to happen.

    I have noticed however, that as I age, I'm just not hitting the irons as far as I used to and that is taking some getting used to. I had to swap out a long iron for an extra hybrid in the bag.

    Same for me. Cann't remember the last time I hit a 4 iron and I only use the 3 when I have to go under a tree :)
