Kevin--that has been my goal for the last 10 years! In fact, I actually went and bought a book called, "breaking a 100!"

Of course I still have not attained my goal, but one day I will. I'll be one happy camper when that day comes.

Me too. Theoretically, I can do it, on some reasonably difficult courses, but trying to get it all together in one round is proving to be a problem. Every round produces some gems; the kind of shots that bring you back for more, but my best ever performance was a par and a birdie in the same round, with a final score of about 105.

The R11 immediately added about 20-25 yards to my drive when compared to my R7, but that was on the golf simulator so I hope it translates to improvements on the course.

It seems the key is to add one shot to every hole, and to consider that to be your personal par. With a more realistic target, you are more likely to play the course rather than your scorecard. Of course, that's great in theory, and would actually give you a score of 90, but it hasn't worked for me yet, as I lack the discipline to lay up short and use the short game to get to the pin.

One thing about living in Alberta is that there is no shortage of courses. I have some seriously decent courses within a few minutes drive, and about a ten minute walk from my house to our local course. The downside is that the season only lasts from May to October.

For me it's about my distance and my golf management. I played with my new set late in the season last year, and boy had a hard time adjusting from steel to graphite. Hopefully, I can get to the dome and work things out in the next few weeks. We also have a gazillion courses around us, including a our University gold course right next door to our house. My husband loves it.

Well, we will probably be able to share scores soon. Hopefully won't be to embarrassing on my end, lol!

I look forward to it. Hopefully this will be the year for both of us to break 100.

Isn't there an old saying about the difference between rugby and soccer? Rugby is a game played by savages, watched by gentlemen while soccer is a game played by gentlemen watched by savages.

I always preferred playing rugby, and watching Canadian football

I always thought it was the other way around, we always say that watching rugby is watching posh people having a punch up!

Ooh! Starting to train up for rugby! It's going good. All that means is that I'm spending less time with my IPad. I am cool with that!
