- About me
Professional jazz/rock/studio guitarist and teacher in the D/FW area. Been golfing since I was 7 years old and really have been going at it hard for the past 4 or 5 years. Really enjoy compressing the pill. Made a good number of friends in the professional golf scene around Dallas, not to mention the friendships I've made here on the Dirt.
I'm a teacher at heart, and I enjoy sharing what I myself have learned through the years. If you have any questions about golf (or music for that matter), hit me up. I'm no expert, but I'm sure I have something to offer.

- Been working for years on becoming a good ballstriker. I have highs and lows just like everyone. Usually hit a good number of greens (highest was 16 of 18), but I'm a pretty mediocre recovery player and only a decent putter.

Heavy Dirt presence at the Bryon Nelson pre-qualifier! Sam Goulden tees off at 9:09 at Castle Hills. Jim Pruitt is caddying for a friend (Brent Evans) over at Lantana...they should already be on the course. And yours truly tees off at 12:57 at Castle Hills. Rain and wind are in the forecast for the afternoon. Wish us all luck!

Thanks MH. We're all okay here. I heard that Cleburne got pretty ravaged last night, but I'm far northeast of that. Like Grady said, these tornadoes are just a way of life here in springtime...every storm system that rolls through from late March to early June, you're wondering if it's the one that's got your name on it.
Last year, Lancaster got another pretty bad one, I think it was an F3. I have a friend who works at the Schneider trucking plant, which got hit hard by it....
I may give Mike a shout regarding this, but I want some feedback from all the rest of us as well.
What do you guys think about somehow orchestrating a tournament for Dirters? I was thinking about regional tournaments to establish qualifiers for a national championship.
The best format, I believe, would be to flight it by handicap, but make it straight-up stroke play. So you play with like handicaps, but you don't USE your handicap.

Thanks Mark! It's always a good thing to put your swing to the test to see if it can allow you to manage your way around a golf course in an efficient manner. It doesn't have to be a PGA Tour qualifier...even city league tourneys are going to be a good test. Even playing your buddy for $2 a hole is going to put pressure on your game!
Everyone reading this...if you haven't played competitively, you need to! It'll let you know if what you have been working on really works.

Now keep in mind, I believe the club will not ACTUALLY accelerate. Because if you have made contact with the ball, and especially the ground, it's going to slow down somewhat. But the INTENT to accelerate keeps the thing moving at speed through the hit, which is SO important in maintaining a consistent path through the ball from swing to swing.
Any thought of simply "carrying" the club to the finish means...
