One bright spot of yesterday, I was digging around in the garage and found one of my old golf bags. Had my old Hogan Edge irons (2 sets ago) with a 2 iron. My current set of Mizunos came with 4 through gap wedge and I added a 19 degree Mizuno hybrid which I have a tendency to hook. My prior set were Hogans, but started at 3 iron. Frankly, I'd forgotten I even still owned one. I pulled it out of the bag and threw it in the trunk thinking I'd see if I could still hit it...
Played yesterday at Cowboys Golf Club in Grapevine, TX (near DFW airport). In case you're wondering: yes, those Cowboys. This is a Jerry Jones venture that's been in place since 2001 and markets itself as the world's only NFL themed golf venue. Although it's been around for a while this was my first chance to visit. Thought I'd pass along some impressions Overall Experience: They are trying to deliver an ultra-premium experience at an ultra-premium price. Normal...
Macallan 12 year over ice. Assisting my anticipation...25 days til Scotland and 10 full days of golf, pubs and bonny lasses.
I don't recall the conversation, but the answer is probably and sort of. I love this maker and buy a lot of it and basically recommend it a lot.

What you have here is their premier tre bottling in a Moelleux, which is their high residual sugar dessert wine. Also very...
Gomey, how did you like the Huet?
Handicap is designed to get the average of your 'good' rounds. For each round it calculates a 'differential' from the adjusted course rating. So you take your score minus the course rating and then adjust it for the slope by taking the differential and dividing it by the course slope and then multiplying it by 113 (average slope supposedly). Once you have your differentials you take the best 10 out of your last 20 rounds and average those differentials. You then...
I used to be a cotton-only guy...and still am for most things...but for summer golf in Texas I've gone over to the dark side.

Wow! Huge news.
BYOB dinner on Friday. Took a 2008 Sea Smoke Ten (good, but way too young). Also took a 2005 Huet Clos du Bourg Demi-sec and a half bottle of a 2005 Huet Clos du Bourg Molleaux Premier Tre (from a half bottle). Interesting tasting two different wines from the same grape/maker/vineyard/vintage expressed so differently. Brought the demi-sec to have with the fish and gumbo dishes. It was awesome. One of my favorites. 1er Tre was for dessert (bread pudding). Tasted them...
