    This was originally posted as a reply to ToolkiT, but I thought the subject was worthy of a thread of it's own:

    Hi, ToolkiT. You hit on a subject thatís as close to home as a Visor. Maybe closer! I just picked up golf this summer myself, and I'm hooked! I figure that it's a cheaper mid-life than a Corvette. I've been reading golf books, listening to golf CDís in the car, subscribed to Golf Digest, and picked up a book covering all the courses in my city. I've even done the unspeakable...watched the Golf Channel at midnight! (insert prayer for me here)

    I just finished reading M. Scott Peck's "Golf and the Spirit", and am working on Bob Cullen's "Why golf?". Both are very good books that explain how golf gets into your bones.

    That Intelligolf module looks very good to me. But then again, maybe a combo of the Intelligolf software combined with a GPS module to track my yardage on each shot. Now we're talkin'! Of course, I'll have to get the Tiger Woods module for those "office tournaments".

    I know, I know. The next phase is: ďHi, my name is Mark, and Iím a golf-geek.Ē

    It is obvious from that statement that you are new to golf. Just wait. New clubs, greens fees, cart fees, more new clubs, lessons, more fees, new clubs, more fees, tournaments, more fees, new clubs, etc. Not to mention acquiring the proper attire or the membership fees/dues to a club once you are really into it.

    Sometimes I wish that I had just bought the Corvette!!

    What the Heck! It's what I want!

    LOL!

    I already know what you mean, visor empowered. All of the above has my wife as worried as Dorthy in a barrel of flyin' monkey's.

    From Visor Sightings:

    There "IS" a full page "vISor" add in the Nov. issue of Golf Digest. Featuring the Eyemodule. Of course the Visor is "green", but you would think they would have the Intelligolf or Tiger Woods module in it.

    Very true... I just bought a new buggy for my golf bag...

    I still need more woods and could realy use some lessons...
    The only comfort I have is that it is a lot cheaper than back home...

    Well, I must admit that I also goined the golfing craze this summer while at my house in Michigan. Out there it's much cheaper, but in Boston it cost an arm and a leg. Now my golfing has been reduced to whenever I can sfford to play, and considering I'm a HS student, that's not much.

    ToolkiT, would that be the pull-cart or motorized golf-cart variety of buggy?

    BTW, how does one from the Great-White-North find his way to the Great-Down-Under?

    Ben, I wish I had started playing golf while in high school. They might be calling me "Tiger" by now. Keep it up and look around for a cheaper course. I found a public 9 hole for only $9. It's a short course that really only let's you heat-up your irons, but at a buck a hole isn't bad. I bet even an HS student could play once a week at that rate. I've suggested it to a number of my students.

    It is a pull-cart... hey it's a SPORT so the motorized ones are out of the question (till I can affort one )

    How I ended up down under? really quite simple, my company (US based software comp.) had a job opening in Sydney, I applied for it, got the job and transfered....

    out here it is about A$16 for 9 holes, A$26 for 18 holes... 1A$ is about half a US$... not too bad...

    I went out this weekend and noticed that there were deer tracks running across the 12th green. I blame my missed putt on those darn deer. We arrived at the 13th tee and sure enough there stood a doe and its two fawn. They stood not more that fifteen yards from the tee box. They steadily munched the fairway, seemingly unaware of my foursome. They have apparently grown quite accustomed to strangely dressed men, riding in little cars, and carrying sticks. I do believe that the only thing that would cause them to flee their grazing is if someone yelled ďforeĒ.

    Last night at Target I found the one essential Christmas gift for any golfer - the Caddyshack dancing gopher. It stands about a foot tall, looks like the orginal gopher, and of course dances to Kenny Loggins (spelling?) "I'm alright".

    Put it on your golf-geeks list.

    Another duffer here.

    My main problem is that I stand too close to the ball.... after I hit it.
