do you like keeping score?

BTW, 90% of rounds are played at a score over 100......

If you have time and $ for a vacation, try a 2 or 3 day golf school. They can correct simple things that will drop a large handicap significantly. Some have other activities other than golf, too. So, you could make it into more than a golf school session/ vacation.

Or, try a few lessons by a pro at your hometown course, or ask someone you know who plays well for pointers.


I could find the time but thats sounds realy expensive do you know about how much something like that would cost

You could search for "golf school { state where you live } " to find out if there are schools close by.

Look for schools that hold CLASSES, rather than give individual instructions. Spreading the cost of an instructor over 5 or 6 students lowers the rate you would pay.

I attended a few golf schools in Vermont a few decades ago. The $150 or so per day, which included lodging and breakfast at a ski resort that doubled as a golf resort in warm months, wasn't too bad. I say that considering the cost of hotels in resort cities. But prices must have risen, and some locations are going to be more expensive than others.

There's always lessons from a pro at the local course, or trying to find a playing partner who plays well enough to give you pointers in exchange for food or drink after your round.

Don't give up due to the expense; there's always some free online pointers/ instructions. Then you could buy only a few lessons - after you've read and tried some online pointers.

thanks guys.

But Rice and Culpepper? Neither were the reason I got into football, and Rice was never my favorite.

He is:

If that's true, good. Probably thinks he's too good for us (why else would he take that much less?), so can't say I want him anywhere close to the team.

No, it's thanks to the cold weather. I never personally had any interest in Wallace anyway. For him, it never solely had to do with either money or winning, because otherwise he never would have left Pittsburgh.

Also Minnesota state income tax is 7.85%, for Florida: 0%.

But, that is offset by the fact that he has to pay taxes in all the other states he plays in (and doesn't get credit against them for living in FL), so in the end, it might not be all that much of a benefit. Still a benefit, but not as dramatic as you'd think.
