    Honing the game in 1967. I can still go to the same spot and hit balls. The tree's gone though.

    We used to take Mauser gun stocks to shop class and repair and refinish the wood. Strip down the old finish, repair any cracks, steam out the dents and BLO the wood. Amazing how nice the European walnut looked when finished. This was in the 1960’s. Today, if you even though about doing that, you would be expelled.

    Playing weed hockey in the winter will really age a guy!
    It also tells you how frugal he is. There's no greens fees when the course is closed for the season. :D

    That's the practice tee, I hit a bunch of them. I remember that picture and my trusty MacGregor driver.

    They don't close courses around here, this is Memphis not Green Bay. It's probably 50 degrees in that picture.

    Notice the perfect style at just 13 years old. Man I could play at one time.[​IMG]

    Maybe a few. This is 2013 plus another 150 pounds. Just get all the fat going in the right places and you can still bust it.
