You must golf a lot, law of averages being what they are. Unless you're on the PGA Tour Champions circuit and you're really Boom Boom.

I worked at night for close to 30 years. So, yeah, I played a ton of golf. If you stand in a lot of thunderstorms, you are bound to be hit by lightening.

Funny thing is I'm not really very good ( about a 10 handicap).

Here's the list of aces:

1986: Pine lake in Haslett. #11 197 yards, 3 iron. shot 86.

1995: Timber Ridge. #16 155 yards, 7 iron. Shot 82

2000: Bellaire country club in Tampa. #10 110 yards, Wedge. Shot 77

2003: Brookshire. #10 110 yards, wedge. Scramble playing with former MSU coach Mark Hankins. I won a year supply of top flights. Another hole in one on a different hole won a car

2009: Tullymore. #5 155 yards 6 iron.
Scramble. Won a nike driver

2010: timber ridge #8. 125 yards, 9 Iron. Dead pull that was heading out of bounds. I was reaching for another ball. Shot rattles off a pine tree and goes in. shot 82.

2014: Wheatfield #7 155 yards, 7 iron. 7th hole, 7 iron 7th ace. shot 37 for 9 holes.

Yeah, I'm lucky as fuck.

Duffy. A 10 handicap is very good. Not very good is a 25 handicap. Average is probably around a 20 handicap. I'm going to guess that you say that because your drives probably aren't all that long, but you probably are consistently in the fairway, and then have an iron shot to the green. Your short game is probably very good from 100 yards and less, which means you rarely 3 putt and in a average game maybe have about 28-30 putts total.

I can drive it about 260 max. I'm just as likely to shoot 90 as I am to shoot in the 70's. My career best is a 74. I shot 50 for 9 in my league 2 weeks ago. Short game is decent but I 3 putt, a lot.

Just shot a 115 on the Manistee National the day after we shot a 60 in a scramble on the same fucking course. Played skins and I won zero.

I hate this game. Fucking hate it.

I'm playing 27 tomorrow.

I played like shit this morning. I think the humidity played a factor. Clubbed up one from normal at times and still came up short. It just wasn't a good golf day.

I think we're close to the same age.  You can still hit it 260?  What's the secret?  Sometimes I think I hit my 4 iron almost as far as my driver now.  I really haven't lost that much distance on my irons, but my drives are probably 40 yds shorter on average.  Can't figure out why my irons have only lost maybe a club difference and such a huge disparity with the driver.

When I was younger, I got the hcp down to 7.  That was 1995.  Averaged under 80 in competition (about 10 tournaments total) in '94 and '95.  Haven't broke 80 since '95 and now can't drive it over 220 even when I flush it and I don't even want to think what my hcp is.  Probably at least 30.

I never used to play winter rules.  Now I move everything.  I play in a league out at Akers.  Haven't broke 50 all year and basically stop keeping score after the 2nd or 3rd hole because by that time it's hopeless.

That's the Loop, right? Looks spectacular, which means it's too goddamn hard.

I'm 54 and my secret is mostly technology. I can hit the driver at least 25 yards longer than I did when I was 25.

Two of us can break 80 on a good day, the other guy is a mid 40's shooter and the last guy will be shooting in the 50's. Length isn't a problem for me and I'm a good putter. But when I play courses with massive greens I get into trouble. Inevitably will have a fair amount of lengthy lag puts where at a regular track I'd be chipping.

With enough warning it does come with free baked goods though.

My stepdad is giving me his old driver, TaylorMade R11-S. About 5 years old, but still a great driver.

Problem is, I'm a lefty. He said I could sell it, give it to someone, etc.

Too bad I'm a lefty.
