Fw: Greatest Golf Lesson Ever

I just love this golf lesson. It has been around before but it is worth revisiting

Remember to reset clocks back tonight

Not a big fan of the frozen tundra which should be a December event. Thinking that it will not be frozen at all

November Thanksgiving at MGCC

Foretees is nice but not very forgiving

Re: Contest

Went to a member guest at another club, a pay back for ours of two weeks ago. The other club had a nicer tee gift ( who cares) and the pro staff was very well dressed ( again who cares): MGCC was better in the important stuff: Food, service and most importantly the golf course. Nice job Joe, Jason, Andy, Chef and staff. 

Indians won again in the now annual Cowboys & Indians Tourney: Dr Sharma's par on 18 sealed the deal. Wait till next year again.

Have played away a number times this year, MGCC is one of the best tracks around. We just don't realize how good a job Jason and staff have done.

The deer herd needs to be culled. those cute babies are  eating machines. Heavy deer leave hoof prints on soft greens( bad combination) much worse then ball marks.

I just would like you as a group to revisit a first tee range.

Even if we tried it for the month of November. I honestly believe that the positives would out weigh the negatives. If an easy solution was available it would have been done. The people on the range and the first tee would be in eye line of each other which has to be safer then the current practice area where nine is dangerously in play. The tree line protects the 17th fairway and green. 

Rock Springs currently has a range which crosses their 18th fairway. 

Try it you'll like it

Congratulations to all on the Irish team for their win and to the Italian team for a great match.  

The golf course is taking a real beating. Mother nature has been a very nasty lady. The number of divots not repaired or replaced is a reflection on the membership. Gentleman its our golf course please repair and replace. 

If you missed the one day member guest you missed a fun time.  The deli lunch was just right and the dinner very nice. The greens were just the best, fast and true. I just am not sure why it wasn't better attended? The price was right, finally decent weather.

The MGCC deer herd must number a hundred.

Ed Houston went to Mt Rushmore last week, what a great trip. Ed has some great picture. America is such an amazing place 

I know that the Irish won todays event but just remember " America is a beautiful Italian name."

A recent study found that the average golfer walks about 900 miles a year.
Another study found golfers drink, on average, 22 gallons of alcohol a year, which means, on average, golfers get about 41 miles to the gallon.
Kind of makes you proud. I almost feel like a hybrid.

A husband and wife are on the 9th green when suddenly she collapses from a heart attack.
"Help me dear," she groans to her husband.
The husband calls 911 on his cell phone, talks for a few minutes, picks up his putter, and lines up his putt.
His wife raises her head off the green and stares at him. "I'm dying here and you're putting."
"Don't worry dear," says the husband calmly, "they found a doctor on the second hole and he's coming to help you."
"Well, how long will it take for him to get here?" she asks feebly.
"No time at all," says her husband. "Everybody's already agreed to let him play through."

A gushy reporter told Phil Mickelson, "You are spectacular, your name is synonymous with the game of golf. You really know your way around the course. What's your secret?"
Mickelson replied, "The holes are numbered."

A young man and a priest are playing together. At a short par-3 the priest asks, "What are you going to use on this hole, my son?"

The young man says, "An 8-iron, father, how about you?"

The priest says, "I'm going to hit a soft seven and pray."

The young man hits his 8-iron and puts the ball on the green.

The priest tops his 7-iron and dribbles the ball out a few yards.

The young man says, "I don't know about you, father, but in my church, when we pray, we keep our head down."


Police are called to an apartment and find a woman holding a bloody 3-iron standing over a lifeless man.

The detective asks, "Ma'am, is that your husband?"

"Yes" says the woman.

"Did you hit him with that golf club?"

"Yes, yes, I did." The woman begins to sob, drops the club and puts her hands on her face.

"How many times did you hit him?"

"I don't know -- put me down for a five."

A golfer teed up his ball on the first tee, took a mighty swing and hit his ball into a clump of trees. He found his ball and saw an opening between two trees he thought he could hit through.

Taking out his 3-wood, he took a mighty swing. The ball hit a tree, bounced back, hit him in the forehead and killed him.

As he approached the gates of Heaven, St. Peter asked, "Are you a good golfer?"

The man replied: "Got here in two, didn't I?

The bride was escorted down the aisle and when she reached the altar, the groom was standing there with his golf bag and clubs at his side.

She said: "What are your golf clubs doing here?"

He looked her right in the eye and said, "This isn't going to take all day, is it?"

Fw: Fwd: Trump Offers Obama a Job

Finally a weekend with just a little bit of rain. 

I can say that our course is in the worse shape I have ever seen it since I joined. I know that Jason and crew work as hard as they can and the main reason is the amount of rain. As members we have to help the amount of divots not repaired or replaced is too many. Soft greens get ball marks and skid marks repair them. 

I had a great pork roll sandwich at lunch today

Greens are rolling nicely

which is the toughest green to putt? 2, 17, or 8 actually you can make a case for all three plus others 

Fall one day member guest coming up. This one is reasonably priced so take advantage of it.

If you have a friend thinking of joining now is the perfect time to come aboard

Emptied two bottles of fill from cart yesterday. It is our golf course replace divots please, The motto should be "Replace repair or fill". Best is replace and repair. 

Our greens are rolling very nicely

Someone suggested a local rule for deep tracks in the bunkers. Need I remind you the bunker is a hazard so my advice is stay out of them. 

Remember Venison is good eating.

Vacation on carnival horizon. Big ship 9 days 8 nights. Had a great time. Played some blackjack, ate too much, massage (2) and no communication with outside world. I had a small accident on Grand Turk but survived. Turned over my scooter just dumb. Gained 9 lbs, I did go to the gym every day. 

Stayed on board while in Port at Puerto Rico. Just chilled. Did some fun stuff at Amber cove. Ron Jon tee shirts for the kids. 
It's amazing how quickly we disembark once in Port. 

Tried to get wisdom tooth extraction but Dr. Y just couldn't do it without breaking it and was afraid of consequences. Went to art Greenwald have an appointment next week to get it out.

Saw both Dr Sharma and Dr Iglesias both were very happy with all my blood work. Hemoglobin A1C right in line. They both said the same thing. I could probably lower my medicine intake but since my numbers are so good why fix something that is not broken. 

Adelina clubs finally came in she took a couple of lessons. She has a very nice golf swing. I think she just doesn't have the time to practice with school and dance. 

Went to North Hills to play golf with Bobby Sheer fun day and then Peter Luger's for steak or was it Ruth Chris steakhouse? Doesn't matter it was excellent. 

Had some words with a fellow MGCC member over Gin. Other players to avoid controversy stayed on the sidelines but privately told me I was right to stand my ground. They probably told the other guy the same thing. LoL

Too much rain golf course is stressed. Rounds are down wondering how much of an assessment we will have. Problem is assessment always makes people leave. 

Dr Sharma who was supposed to be my member member partner says he is not well enough to play. So I am playing with Richie Policastro, it will be fun

Went to New Balance and Cubby barbecue on the Saturday of labor day weekend.

Labor Day

amazing where has the summer gone?

Labor Day barbecue at the pool, please call for a reservation

Member Member tourney by far my favorite. Sign up on Foretees or the pro shop.  Ask around or the pro shop if you need a partner. The beauty of the event is that you meet and play against members not normally in your group. The shootout is very intense. 

Schools open next week plus less daylight so be careful driving 

Rosh Hashanah 2018
  • begins Sunday, September 9

 It is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes harder for them to maintain the same quality of housekeeping as when they were younger.  When you notice this, try not to yell at them.  Some are oversensitive, and there's nothing worse than an oversensitive woman.

My name is Roger Lesch.  Let me relate how I handled the situation with my wife, Peggy.

When I retired a few years ago, it became necessary for Peggy to get a full-time job, along with her part-time job, both for extra income and for the health benefits that we needed.

Shortly after she started working, I noticed she was beginning to show her age.  I usually get home from the golf club about the same time she gets home from work. Although she knows how hungry I am, she almost always says she has to rest for half an hour or so before she starts dinner.  I don't yell at her. Instead, I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she gets dinner on the table.

I generally have lunch each day in the Men's Grille at the Golf Club, so eating out is not an option in the evening.  I'm ready for some home-cooked grub when I hit that door.  She used to do the dishes as soon as we finished eating.      But now, it's not unusual for them to sit on the table for several hours after dinner.  I do what I can by diplomatically reminding her several times each evening that they won't clean themselves.   I know she really appreciates this, as it does seem to motivate her to get them done, before she goes to bed.

Another symptom of aging is complaining, I think.  For example, she will say that it is difficult for her to find time to pay the monthly bills during her lunch hour.  But, boys, we take 'em for better or worse, so I just smile and offer encouragement.  I tell her to stretch it out over two, or even three days. That way, she won't have to rush so much.  I also remind her that missing lunch completely now and then wouldn't hurt her any (if you know what I mean).   I like to think tact is one of my strong points.

When doing simple jobs, she seems to think she needs more rest periods.  For example, she had to take a break when she was only half-finished mowing the front lawn.  I try not to make a scene.  I'm a fair man... I tell her to fix herself
a nice, big, cold glass of freshly squeezed lemonade and just sit for a while.   And, as long as she is making one for herself, she may as well make one for me, too.

I know that I probably look like a saint in the way I support Peggy.  I'm not saying that showing this much patience & consideration is easy.   Many men will find it difficult.  Some will find it impossible !!!!   Nobody knows better than I do how frustrating women get as they get older. However, guys, if you even use just use a little more tact and less criticism of your aging wife because of this article, I will consider that writing it was well worthwhile.    After all, we are put on this earth to help each other.


Roger Lesch died suddenly on January 31, of a perforated rectum.

The police report says he was found with a Calloway extra-long 50-inch Big Bertha Driver II golf club jammed up his rear end, with barely 5 inches of grip showing, and a sledge hammer laying nearby.

His wife Peggy was arrested and charged with murder.  The all-woman jury took only 10 minutes to find her Not Guilty  - -  accepting her defense that Roger, somehow without looking, accidentally sat down on his golf club.

A hole in one, so to speak !!!!
