Headed to the Wyndham Friday.
To stand outside the fence line and yell at people?

For a while I was a local legend at Cook's Creek. Not because of what I shot but because I got shot! A group of work buddies were playing on a July 4th weekend, I think in 1999 or 2000 and as we approached the first green we kept hearing a popping sound but didn't pay much attention to it. I had just teed off on the 2nd and was walking to my cart when i heard a pop and then an immediate pain in my left shoulder. Come to find out a family (mom, dad, 6-yo child) were target shooting from across the creek at a tree by the 2nd tee box and I took one in the shoulder. My friends went beserk on them and mom and dad both immediately blamed it on the kid. The ranger heard the commotion and came to see what was going on. Fortunately they were firing a pellet gun and it didn't break the skin but raised a heck of a welp. We continued playing and then about 30 minutes later here comes a deputy sheriff in a golf cart out to get a statement from me and my friends. I told them I wouldn't press charges if he would go talk to them and he ssured me he would be talking to them!
Fast forward about 7 years and I go back out there and mention I had gotten shot and they all remembered the incident and gave me a discount on my fees!
This is amazing!! I’m glad you weren’t seriously hurt, but what a story!!

Anyone else miss watching Anthony Kim play? He was so fun to watch when he was feeling it. Went after every flag. Did so successfully. I always thought he had a bright future. I know he made the money from the insurance payout, but I have to wonder how much he coulda made if he would have come back. He was so young at the time. I know golf is incredibly hard to make money consistently at, but he seemed like he had it.
Everyone thinks the policy had a clause in it, but I've seen some rumors stating otherwise. I don’t think he really loved the Tour life. I think he liked the fame and fortune, but not the actual life. Plus he liked the booger sugar quite a bit.
But yes, I miss watching him play a ton. He was so damn likable. And could really play.

I haven’t played there since probably 2003?....but remember shooting a 78. It was great then. Loved that course.
Shot a 39 on a par 35 today but was free swinging and neck didn’t stop anything. I seriously cannot hit an iron, it’s not embarrassing but I have the not cool skill of hitting a 7 wood type club anywhere from 120-180 so I just keep using it on my second shots and par 3’s
Love the course. It’s a great layout. But I won’t go back anytime soon. It was an absolute dog track.
Shot 78 at Cook’s Creek today. Course was a total disaster. But I managed. I’m really disappointed in the condition. In good condition it’s a top 5 course in central Ohio.

It’s been great, imo. I feel like MJ is really being honest about things. I think some of what he says is embellished a little, but still pretty honest.

I have purchased several cars from them over the years. If you are not an expert on used cars, they are a good option because they remove a lot of risk. I always assume I am paying a premium for their vetting and warranty and I'm okay with that. For someone that knows cars really well, it may be a waste of time. My experience has always been very good. No hard selling and no haggling.

Ended up spending some of my stimulus on new irons. Cobra King Forged CB/MB combo in black. Got a ridiculous deal on them, so I couldn’t pass it up.
They haven’t allowed customers inside for awhile now and today was the 1st...soooo probably trying to get their checks cashed.

Has anyone ever purchased a car through Carmax? I’m in the market for a new(to me) car and have been constantly going back to their website to look. It seems like their prices are better than other dealerships on similar models.

How cheap? I do not recommend the suitcase style turntables.
Mine was $150, and it's been great so far.
What kind of speakers can I attach it to? And does that work on the “new” colored vinyl that’s out? A lot of the reviews I was reading were saying that the new colored vinyl doesn’t play as well. Something with the needle bouncing too much.
Any of you have a recommendation for a somewhat “cheap” turntable? I’ve read some reviews on ones on amazon, but none seem to be all that great.

It isn’t on Netflix, but I was able to find an airing at midnight and 1 am that I could DVR
Where can I watch it after the fact? I completely forgot to set up the DVR for it on Sunday.

Reached out to bank and they said the deposit was rejected because the names didnt match, so now I guess we wait a few weeks for them to cut us a paper check in the mail. Sounds like my bank fucking sucks because my wife has had this account for years and we've received tax refunds before. Justin, you may want to reach out to your bank as well, assuming the IRS site says yours was suppose to be deposited yesterday.
Huntington is the worst.

For everyone that has received theirs, about what time was it deposited?
I was up after midnight, nothing. Went to bed, woke up around 7 and it was there.
This is the payment checker website. Although I’ve heard it’s not working for some people.
Girlfriend and I both got ours today.

I’m pretty sure they did reveal it. Now whether it actually happens that way who knows. But they said everyone who has direct deposit on file will receive theirs this week. Then social security recipients. Then they’ll physically mail about 5 million checks a week to those without direct deposit which will take about 2-3 months.
True. What I meant is why some people receive theirs in the first set of deposits versus receiving it later. Like is it based on when people filed? Or just random? Or alphabetically?
They will probably never reveal the reasoning behind who gets theirs when. Other than checks being mailed after the direct deposits are done.
