|37 weeks 21 hours ago||I second Tobacco Road||
Tobacco Road is beautiful. I don't know if I'd put it in my top 5, but it's close. Pinehurst #2 is something else. I wish I wasn't so young when I played it. I was only like 12 so I don't think I appreciated it as much as I should have. Definitely want to head back down to that area and play those courses again.

You're such a douchebag.

I can't stop humming the tune that starts at 39 seconds whenever I start playing Halo.
Other songs that get stuck in my head are most Taylor Swift songs and Drunk in Love by Beyonce. No shame.

You could have scored 3 goals in under 2 minutes if you would have had Nike cleats.
|38 weeks 2 days ago||I have a couple||
I have a couple of good ones. My favorite has to be from back in little league. It was the championship game, down 1, bases loaded, bottom of the 7th, 2 outs, and full count. I had an uncle who had never made it to one of my games show up, and I told him from the on deck circle that if I got up to the plate I was hitting one out. I made up my mind that I wasn't going to take a walk once the count was 3-2 unless the pitch was unhittable. Got a pitch that was right across the letters on my jersey, and hit a bomb to straight away center field. Walk off grand slam to win the championship. My dad was the coach too so that was awesome to share with him. He was happier than I was.
Honorable mention for me was throwing a no hitter in my first start on Varsity baseball as a sophomore. It was all down hill from there though because I threw out my arm that season from being pitched so much. I was worse as a junior, and even more worse as a senior. My arm feels like it wants to fall off anytime I throw a baseball now. Lastly, it was the league championship at our home course my senior year for Varsity golf. I shot a 40 on my opening 9 (worst I had ever shot on that 9), and came back and shot a 30 on the back 9 by going 6 under in the last 5 holes. Birdied 14, 15, 16, and 17 and eagled 18. Won the tournament by 2!
|38 weeks 5 days ago||Golf is mine as well||
My dad had a golf club in my hand the day I could walk. I play every day possible. Going through high school when I had all of the time in the world with no worries, I was a scratch golfer. Then college came along and my practice time went down considerably and my handicap got up to about 8. This is my first summer really getting back to it and practicing hard. I plan on getting my handicap back under 5 by the end of the summer. But we'll see. Beer is far too enjoyable most of the time to make it possible for me to shoot that low. Priorities

Victor slapped the ball to the left side to beat the shift. If Davis is on second, KC can't play the shift since they need someone at home on 3rd in case Davis steals. It's impossible to know if Victor would have actually got a hit in that at bat since it would have been a totally different scenario.

Sorry! haha I'm jumping all over this chance to get back to Ann Arbor.
|39 weeks 1 day ago||Just accepted a job offer in AA!!||
Moved to Omaha, NE for a job after graduation last year, and got an offer this week that I couldn't refuse for a job that I applied to last Spring at a company in AA. Signed my offer this week, and handed my boss my resignation letter this morning.
Pulling my best HARBAUGH impression! I'm coming hoMe!!
|39 weeks 1 day ago||I enjoyed the grind for a while.||
I will not admit how many hours of gameplay me and my friends put into that game, but it was more than a lot. When you get to the point where you have every exotic, all of the raid materials, and everything maxed out with hundreds of materials and nothing left to spend them on, there's nothing more to grind to enjoy. Yes, I had a problem haha
|39 weeks 1 day ago||Xbox player||
I'm on Xbox. But I played destiny a lot for quite a few months, have a maxed out character of each type, and then realized you do the same damn thing over and over again and it's not even fun. Also they aren't coming out with a new raid in the House of Wolves expansion that they scammed everyone into buying along with the first expansion. I will probably never play that game again. It feels more like a chore than fun when I play it. Borderlands, and Halo Masterchief Collection is where it's at for me right now.
If you get a good group to raid with, they can be fun to play for a little while. But once you get all of the raid gear and raid weapons, there's really nothing else to play for in the game and all of the fun disappears. That's what happened for me atleast. But killing Atheon and Crota for the first times was pretty thrilling. Good luck finding some fun people to play with.
|39 weeks 3 days ago||Chain of Lakes in Branch County MI||
Used to spend most of my time on Marble Lake. But it was always nice to take the pontoon from one end to the other and back. Especially doing it late at night with a boat full of booze and some good friends.
We no longer boat there though. Last year we docked the boat at Wamplers Lake. Closer to home.
|39 weeks 6 days ago||Also wanted to say thank you||
Watched the whole fight on this stream. Best one I came across by far. +1 to you

The Masters is my choice.

I just don't see Money losing this fight. He'll win in a unanimous decision.

I'm also in Omaha.
|40 weeks 2 days ago||Going to have to go now||
I drive by a Smashburger everyday but I have never stopped in to give it a try. Looks like I'm going to have to grab it for dinner tonight if you put it above Five Guys and In-N-Out. As far as what's better between those 2, they're both delicious to me. Might have the give the edge to In-N-Out. It's just a simple and delicious burger for a smaller price than Five Guys.
|40 weeks 2 days ago||Another wolverine in Omaha!||
Since I moved here, I've only seen 2 people wearing a Michigan shirt.
I never used to mind Nebraska fans growing up in Michigan... then I moved here... We need more representation in these parts. The amount of crazy husker fans is too much to handle at times.
|40 weeks 3 days ago||Probably game 7, but I'm going to KC||
I would have to say game 7, but unfortunately I can't pull that off. I will be in KC this weekend though for a game or 2. Although, it would be really hard to pass up a trip to Vegas. Vegas is crazy enough on a normal weekend, I can't imagine how much fun it would be this weekend. If I had to rank them, it'd be as follows:
|40 weeks 4 days ago||Good||
But I just did a quick scroll through all of the states and there are only 30 bdubs across the country playing the fight. So odds are bdubs won't be a good option. All I did was google search bars playing the fight in my city and I found a couple local places playing it and that was it. Doesn't look like many bars are willing to pay the price to carry the fight.
|40 weeks 4 days ago||Doesn't look like many bdubs have it||
Click on that link and you can pick a state and it gives you bdubs that are playing it. Only the Grand Rapids and East Lansing locations are playing it in Michigan.
|40 weeks 4 days ago||Go to a bar if you can||
That's what I'm going to do. There's a couple of bars downtown where I live that are showing the fight. $20 cover charge. I thought that seemed steep, but it beats paying $100. This might be the last big fight you get to watch in boxing for a long time.
But if you have to stay home, I wouldn't spend $100. I would just stream it. The quality won't be great, but that wouldn't be a big deal knowing I saved $100 to see the same thing just in a lower quality video.

Gonna be a long day at work. I need some bangin.
|46 weeks 11 hours ago||That's weird||
That's weird. It was at 2:54 and 3:04 for me when I watched it on my macbook.
|46 weeks 21 hours ago||I couldn't believe it either||
I have always hit my R9 high. It promotes high spin rates and the R15 tries to limit spin rates. My spin rate was like 3200 rpm with my R9 and a launch angle of like 15 degrees. The R15 I had a spin rate of about 1400 and launch angle of 13 degrees. A good swing with my R9 I would hit it about 290. My miss hits with the R15 were going 305, and good swings with the R15 were going between 320 and 330 yards.
If it's ever a windy day, it was impossible for me to hit my R9 into the wind or with a strong crosswind with my really high spin rates. The ball flight now isn't going to be bothered by the wind nearly as much and I was way more consistent with it. I'm relieved I finally went out looking for a new driver this year to say the least. The difference it makes still doesn't seem real to me.
It is very compatible too. You can make so many adjustments to it to make sure it's perfect for your swing. If you are in the market for a driver, definitely go give it a shot and see for yourself.
|46 weeks 23 hours ago||Drivers||
I can't offer any insight on your irons. I bought my set of new Taylormade R9 TP irons quite a few years ago and love them. So I haven't bothered to even try out any iron sets for quite some time now.
But I just went out looking for a new driver this year and after trying out every new driver, I liked the Taylormade R15 (460cc head) the best. So then I started tweaking it and after hitting it for a bit I couldn't let myself walk out the door without it. It made my spin rate about 40% what it was with my old driver (Taylormade R9 430cc head), and my miss hits with the R15 would go 15 yards farther than a perfect hit with my R9. When I hit the R15 flush, it goes 30 to 40 yards farther than my R9 would on a good swing. I couldn't believe how big of a difference 6 years of technology advancements made.
So if anyone is in the market for a new driver this year, I recommend giving it a look. Personally, I've never hit a different brand of club better than Taylormade. Taylormade is the superior club manufacturer in my books, and I have a hard time buying anyting else. I always give other brands a shot, and they never perform up to the standards of Taylormade for me.
Edit: I second everyone's opinion about getting fitted for any clubs you buy though. A club that fits your body and swing makes a world of difference.

|47 weeks 1 day ago||Dammit man||
Definitely should have took your advice and read it over lunch. It takes a lot to get to me, and I couldn't contain myself while reading this. Hell of a story. Now I need to go take a walk or something so that I can focus on getting some work done sometime this morning.
