yeah.. I wasn't thinking really... hence the broken pieces in the course trash bin. I took the rest of my KC's out when I got home though. It was my nice, slightly fading right roc. Took it about a year and half to get it there. :( Temperature was around 30-32 degrees probably.

I have broken exactly one DX Gremlin each winter since '05 (and have all 5 hanging on my wall). Have yet to this winter, and with the Grange being closed until March, my stash may survive the season unscathed. Knock on wood…

Good: Figuring out how to get some snap on my throw. It is a slow process but I am tenacious and patient, though not as patient as Blake is with noobs. :lol:

Bad: Weather in Charlotte right now. Average high for January in previous years: 52 degrees. Average high this week: 37 degrees. 15 degrees colder than average for the whole week, to say nothing of the snow/ice.

Ugly: Doing the pen drill with a sharpie and exploding it onto two walls. Not as bad as it could have been as the wife is out however the nail polish remover also removed some paint...we'll see if she notices.

Good: Despite the gross weather, I still managed to play all weekend.

Bad: At a mini this morning I missed a $420 ace by about 3 inches (hit the chastity belt with my Pure), then rolled OB :(

Ugly: running at every hole made for a lackluster score...lost my #10 Funkytown Flyers tag for #41.

Good- figured out what is wrong with my throw. I've been feeling the hit better than I have in a LONG time. My putting has also been much better.

Bad- only 1 down on the first four holes last night after hitting the facemask on 3 of 4 putts (at least they were long putts)

Ugly- wont get to play this week because I have to train someone at work.

Good - Made it out yesterday for the first time since early December.

Bad - Weatherman missed his mark and we only got a high of -20C (-5F)

Ugly - Windchill dropped that to about -30C (-22F)

good: won my first Adv tourney

bad: my putting the last round

ugly: my rounds rating worsened every round this weekend. But the important thing is I played less worse than the competition.

Ugly- All this damn snow. Not sure if I'll be able to make the ice bowl tomorrow because I missed work all this week. More snow is falling now

Bad- Was stuck for 4 days in the house. Got out today, though.

Good- Tax returns! I got to order plenty of plastic!

Finnish tax returns arrive early in December to bolster holiday season sales. Very capitalistic maybe the US should follow :-)
Flat shots need running on the center line of the tee and planting each step on the center line. Anhyzer needs running from rear right to front left with the plant step hitting the ground to the left of the line you're running on. Hyzer is the mirror of that.

Bad: I bombed the singles round so hard I didn't cash
Ugly: I am going to have to play the Buckhorn Open this weekend and that course is tighter...
