Thanks Merlin. The Senior Championship was THE highlight of the year.
at least you are playing! I've played 2x since last November!
Looks like you have updated your aircraft huh?

We're not in Texas yet. We're leaving Fargo on 1/29, and we hope to get to Lago Vista on 1/30 by 5:00. If you want to get together for a round, let me know. I'm going through golfnow.com to set up tee times, and there are four courses in particular that I'd like to check out.
Hey Merlin, good to see you playing again. Looks like the 2 months off helped the game. Just let me know when you can come up to Tyler to play.

where in westchester you guys playing I used to live in Yonker new york what part you guys going to play? la tigre
I really appreciate the invitation to play in the Westchester area on the 19th, but unfortunately, I am in my crazy season at work (yacht repair and maintenance)and playing midweek during the day would be impossible. I play eves after work when I can get there before 5:30 or so. Also, I am quite aways from Westchester. Only thing I've ever played in that area is Westchester CC, in a tournement many years ago. Don't think it is public though. Thank you again for the invite to play. Hope you get out to play anyway.
We have a scramble to play in Saturday. I hope our score looks like that. Good Job!
I will meet you and I will show you this isn't bs. Full handicap you name the course. Let's go!
Like what? that would make an interesting post.
What people do when they decide not to golf.
M2D- I have to give you credit for sticking to your guns. I didn't really think you could quit- but it looks like you've pulled it off. Thanks for continuing to come back to check in on us!
You totally missunderstood my comment on the First Swing Helps Amputee Golfers column.
Broken finger in the beginning of the summer has had me pretty much sidelined. I've played a little, but nothing official. Sucks!
Back in the saddle again! A little time off seems to have done the trick!
quitting???? how could you!!!
Merlin - saw your post luckily. Near ABIA - well you could go to Wolfdancer - GREAT track out in Bastrop (opposite from Austin). Run by the Hyatt Lost Pines resort. Nice track...that's the nearest.
hes around...havent talked to him in a couple weeks but i think hes still playing just not posting scores as much
Birdie King says:
are not or. lol
nope, i've never played in any of the dogfights
MrUmp1 created the group. Basically its a group for SE Texas Golfers who wants to post their scores and maybe setup some games.
473 scores entered WOW take me 10 years to play that many rounds lol
Whoa Provo, not Utah! Did you play with Turks or with Caicos?
Saw your comment; how about when you have a day like I had today, 44 front, 38 back? How can you be on one day or hole, and off the next? Great game, isn't it.
merlin, What's up with the notes on your rounds?? Let's here a little about what happened out there.
yep, it's those damn expectations
That's rough. My rule of thumb on plumbing is that it takes three trips to the hardware for each repair: One to buy the stuff you think you need, a second to buy the stuff it turns out you really need, and the third to replace the stuff you bought but broke trying to install.
thanks, did you look at my scorecard...that will answer your question
How's it going? I have been playing i just haven't been posting my scores like I usually do for some reason. I am so glad the weather is starting to warm up so I don't have to hit 5-iron from 130yds anymore. But, like I always say, if you struggle through the winter, it'll make you batter golfer come summer. Score are finally starting to come down now.
Yah, I hate plumbing, too. Every job seems to take all day, nad at least two trips to the hardware shop.
Hey Merlin! What happened on the 12th? Rain? Or didja hafta work? Man you sure get a lot of rounds in.
Nice shooting in your scramble yesterday, Tex! Now....let's see that score for a standard round! :)
Jake Bogardus says:
haha ya right man here in NY it gusts up to at least 95. And my course is located in a tornado zone so I commonly have to battle the 150 mph swirling winds of those beasts. Its tough up here I tell ya
Actuallt, I'm in Tampa today, with a 1:30 tee time with my father-in-law at his club, Buckhorn. I'll post how it goes.
Man, I'm jealous. You are getting some rounds in down there in Texas.
M2D- love the new plate! I'm surprised the let you get by with "Ho" anything. Awesome though! As few people as actually hit hole in one's, it's awesome that yours came with a prize!
those 80's are pretty impressive, spring time you should be at par or better.
thanks - I agree with your comments that total distance divided by number of putts is a pretty effective and simple measure. I see that you have started tracking it - let me know hot it goes.
Hey Merlin, intense is only the tip of the iceberg, but I guess that's what you do if you can't get out much.
have a great thanksgiving M2D
couple of 70's and a couple 80's nice job.thats gonna beat up that handicap fer sure
Whoa! 78? Sweet round.
96.4% of your fairways, over 50% of greens and an 85.4 scoring average. I don't get it. I know your short game is better than mine. What gives?
yeah, that 68 would have been sweet on a par 72 course, LoL. sun has been going down earlier and get off work at 3:30pm, so i have to hit up the courses lit up at night.

woods 2000 ha
I saw that 67 and freaked too! haha- nice scramble round still.
i'm envious of how you can play golf every single day =/
man merlin, i almost pooped my pants when i saw that 67. then i realized it was scramble =(
agreed dug. how does he do it that?
thanks man...I need to learn your tricks for hitting the fairways!!!..90% is insane
Merlin, what's your schedule look like Thursday? Wanna play in Lafayette or Lake Charles? Email me TaylorFade@gmail.com or post a message.
Thanks for the effort m2d! UPS is being a little crazy considering it is one cigar! Give me a break!
You are on for the fastest round bet. I have a course that's comparable to yours. I will play it Monday. I love beer...
just part of my power fade...
How did I know you were gonna correct me on the dimples on jets thing?
3 hour layover in BR., huh? You should have called. You were 10 min. from my house and 5 from our home course. We could at least hit the bar.
Hey Guy...great driving stats...looks like you get to alot of courses, which is great...keep up the good scores
Well, we only got out once. Played Pok ta Pok and like most reviews was not impressed, although the back 9 was in much better shape than the front. We were going to play the Hilton but rain prevented that. Oh well, next time!
Mashie Niblick says:
Yes Sir, Vernon Drummond is my Uncle a great man and a good player.
I really enjoyed playing Prairie Landing! You've played all over the place...I want your job! How do you do it?
Beaver sounds good or Copper Mill. It depends on the time frame as to where we play. Pelican Point or The Island are options too. Merlin you can look at the courses online and pick, we are pretty much open to play anywhere.
My favorite course is probably Beaver Creek. It isn't the best course in the area, but it's the best value, I think.
Or maybe LSU or the Island. What do you think, Mike?
Yes I do know him. he is the one that turned me on to oobgolf.
You might be the only person this whole site that plays more than I do. I may never catch you, but I am gonna give it hell trying.
Will do. We will be there Memorial Day through the following Sunday. I would like to get at least 2 rounds in(wives will be there too).
Thanks for the Mexico update!
chipotle mg says:
can you update your equipment!? i want to see what clubs you use! thanks
I'm heading to Cancun at the end of May with some buddies...my resort has free play at Club de Golf Cancun at Pok-ta-Pok, but I keep reading that it is bad. I'm a little spoiled by beautiful SE Florida courses, any suggestions? Thanks, Scott
merlin if your ever in the Baton Rouge area to play some golf let me know. We can arrange an oobgolf round at a local course. I play with about six members.
I did get back out today and played two rounds with a 9 year old who handed it to me. He shot 81, 84 and wasn't even putting good at all. I shot 99, and 93 and played utterly terrible check my scorecards. Rare green or fairway. I became very good at scrambling for bogie lately though.
chipotle mg says:
are you jealous of my syntax?
Nice! Hope you had a great time. I'll definitely need to go back and load up on the Hilo Muni course!
Hey, thanks for the email. Sorry it's taken so long to respond. What part of Hawaii are you visiting? Kona is on the west side of the island and Hilo is the east. I only had a chance to play 1 course in Kona. It was a resort course. The rest of the time, I spent on the Kohala coast (north). Played 4 courses on 2 resorts. All were very nice with slightly different features. The most beautiful, and still my favorite is Mauna Kea King's course. Have a great trip!
We added a new stat that shows how many miles you've played. You have a very impressive number!
M2D- We added additional controls to the leaderboard that lets you now source by scores entered. It doesn't eliminate the clowns- but you can at least narrow it down and get rid of some of the jokers.
like amccall says, play the waikoloa courses. kona country club is nice, you're playing at sea level. makalei golf course takes you up into the mountains.
Big Island...not a lot of experience playing over there, but both of the Waikaloa courses are great: Beach Course is the more scenic one, with a phenominal 12th hole; the King's course is a nice and challenging links course. www.waikoloabeachresort.com/golf.php. Good luck!
how are u not shooting in the 70's work on ur putting
Thanks for the nice comment Merlin.
I feel like I should be scoring better too. Maybe it's the putting.
92% driving...40% GIR, you should be shooting in the 70s all the time! nice stats merlin!
Your fairway hits are insane! Very nice, keep it up!
Way to go with that 84, looks like midseason form :-)
Man look at that driving accuracy! Awesome.
Happy new year to you and thank you for your kind words. Keep up the fine golfing, I'd love to have an accuracy rating of 90%. Fellow golf lover Frank
