Yes, golf. Who else likes it? I just got thru playing a round. I had a blast, even though I'm terrible at it (I shot a 111 today). No birdies, not even a par. My biggest problem is that I'll either start a hole strong and then flub my upshot, or I'll 3 put, or my drive will slice like a banana. I rarely play through an entire hole without screwing up somehow. I'm sure most people have the same problem. But I still love it. Anyone else?

Love golf. Have gotten away from it for awhile but I used to play 3-4 time a week. And to fix that slice, trust me here, take some vaseline lip balm and rub some on the strike plate of your club. This fills the grooves and will not allow the ball to spin. What will this achieve? No spin...no slice or hook. Straight as an arrow every time guarantee. It will also show exactly where you are striking the ball. Give it a shot and let me know what you think. Peace on ya!

I've played a couple of time. Lots of fun. Wish I had more time for it. The only thing I don't like is the culture of golf that takes itself too seriously. Like having to be quiet. That's just stupid. It's a stationary ball. If Reggie Jackson can jack three straight home runs off of three different pitchers with wicked stuff in a World Series game with 50,000 people screaming than any golfer should be able to hit the ball when there are people talking, cheering or god forgive taking a picture.
