My boys and I competed in the Philadelphia Disc Golf open this past weekend.  All three of us "cashed" and took home some prizes.   So cool to share a new sport with the juniors.   Looking forwar

Back from the Azores. Tom may want to relocate. Temps in the 70s. A brief shower or two most days.Thick, weed-free Bermuda grass on lawns and golf course.  Looked bullet-proof.

My 8 yr. daughter’s school project (planting sunflower seeds after shutdown) has umm....been a success. She is ecstatic, 10-12 feet later.

This is why, I never aim for the flag during thunderstorms (or on sunny days either).

Did you finally get a hole in one?  I figured that's what would happen if you ever did.  :bye:

I did get a hole in one on a drizzly day in November, I think it was 2002.  Fifth hole at Kresson (where else?), 120 yards, 8 iron.  Thankfully it wasn't unstable aloft and lightning did not strike.

BTW, I bought a plaque and double checked. It was 11/29/01 and a "strata" ball.  I figured the 2002-03 correlation might be coming and the pressure on me would be excruciating.  ;)

The Fedex cup final has started. YAWN! JT starts at -10. What is that. I guess it takes 15 million to not have the PGA major on. 

1st : -10
2nd: -8
3rd: -7
4th: -6
5th: -5
6th to 10th: -4
11th to 15th: -3
16th to 20th: -2
21st to 25th: -1
26th to 30th: E

21-30 have no shot.

Well they have the three best players on top.  Otherwise, I don't know, it doesn't do much for me.

We took an impromptu trip to the Poconos since the weather was so great.  We stayed at the same place on Lake Wallenpaupack we used to go to with our children.  We golfed at Great Bear and Buck Hill. They are going to be redoing the White Course at Buck Hill and it is going to be closed for the season soon.  (The white 9 that is).  They have a Red & Blue 9.  This is the locker room at Great Bear, I almost wanted to spend 4 hours in there.  For Andy, I think the last image is part of a defunct Ski Lift (behind the green of Blue 7) at Buck Hill.

First time we ever vacationed in Ocean City, MD.  Played Lighthouse (back nine beat up by the weather), Rum Pointe (Nice!) and Man O War (who can complain about a course where we both shot 84 playing it for the first time).

This was one of the holes on Man O War, we both avoided this monstrous hill.

A couple of other pictures.  The clubhouse at Rum Pointe.  It is a Peter Dye Course, so their 9th hole (right side) looks and plays like the 18th at TPC Sawgrass.

These were our tee shots at the par 3 15th hole at Man O'War.  I would have been more nervous if I realized a fan was watching us.

Speaking of pests...

Up here in Bucks County, it’s Japanese stilt grass...coming your way next spring if it hasn’t already invaded your lawn!

Looking for best battery powered weedwacker to prepare for heavy combat next year⁉️

It was nature day at Kresson and no animals were harmed in golfing on the 12th hole.  (That is this hole btw).

This was my poor attempt at "shot tracer" technology.

What...did you throw the ball there?

Hmmm.... I'm thinking the ball went straight up and straight down. The apex of that ball flight is too high for Tony. That top arrow looks to be 5 yards from the deer, which are 15 yards from the turkey's, and the turkey's are close to Tony, kind of milling around like he is part of the flock. :bye:  I think they are all searching the ground looking for figs.
