Feb 25th treasure hills

The sun came out today and slowly warmed up the valley, and by our tee time of 3:00pm at treasure hills,
the temperature was up to a balmy 64 degrees. It was breezy for the first couple of holes, then the wind died down.

The teams were just about the same as last week with Sid, Joyce, Harry and Jo making up Team # two.

Team # 3 was the same as last week with Gerry, Bill and Arthur.

Team # 1 was the first out, made up of Don, Keith and Richard.

There were only 10 golfers out compared to 19 last week. Three of the golfers from last week.
Doug Mazor, Bob Thorson and Frank Simpson headed back to the great white north above the 49th parallel.
Jerry Pape stayed at home with George Coulson.
The Kline’s, Fred and Dorothy along with Bob and Dee Martintoni left some birdies at Tony Butler and went back to try to find them.

Keith started out with a bang with a birdie on the first hole (the only birdie scored by the group), he was cruising along until he
took an 8 on hole # 6 the finished with a 44 for the Lowest score of the day.

Richard played the first two holes in great fashion scoring a 7 then a 9 before settling down to finish with a 49 on the day,
the only thing that saved him was his putter.

Don played steady golf and turned in a score of 52.
This was Don’s last chance to shine as he and his better half Donna leave in the morning for Sunny Florida.

The foursome of Harry, Jo, Sid and Joyce.
Harry shot a 9 on # 2 and 8 on # 8 but finished with a 52.
Jo and Joyce shot 60 nd 61 for the day.
Sid had pars on both of the par three holes and turned in a 49 for the day.

Bill was looking for his first score under 50 until he reached the tough # 9 where he took a nine and finished with a 52 on the day.

Gerry was playing nice steady golf and met her Waterloo on hole # 9 where she matched Bill’s 9. her final score was a 58.

Arthur was not himself today as he shot a 47, he did have 4 pars on his round.

How often should I replace the spikes of my golf shoes?

Charlie D asked:

I was looking at my golf shoes the other night and noticed that a lot of the spikes towards the toes of my shoes were broken off. I have the Softspikes Pulsar Fast twist spikes currently in my shoes. If the front spikes break, should I replace all the spikes or just rotate the ones from the back to the front and continue that process? How often are new spikes recommended?

What is a good way to learn how to hit the golf ball before hitting the ground?

atlbrave10114 asked:

Is there any tips on how to hit the golf ball first, before I make my divot into the ground. Its seems like I am constintly hitting the ball fat and loosing a ton of distance. Even when I hit the ball decent my distance is still short compared to most golfers.
I’m lucky to hit a 5-iron over 150! My best clubs are usually my 6-iron and up (short irons) so I know if I could learn how to get a touch more distance, it would greatly improve my handicap.

Somebody PLEASE help me!!!

What is the name of a game where a golf ball is hit towards players holding paddles trying to knock it down?

Matt N asked:

I saw this once on ESPN in the late 90’s. A player with an over-sized driver would hit a golf ball towards a group of players that each held something that looked like a stop sign. These players would attempt to knock the ball down.
