  1. I can go up to 36 if I don't lose it in the water.
  2. There are hundreds of YouTube videos on this. Saguto golf, Nick Taylor, Jess Frank & Eric Cogorno to name a few. The problem is most PGA Professionals don’t teach it. When you watch most PGA touring pros, they mostly follow the principals.
  3. I would like to see a side by side comparison of the data comparing the 2019 ball test to the 2021 ball test. With the USGA ball restrictions are their differences between the same ball models? I have been looking at the two sites and for the top end balls, I can only see a very small difference or none. With the golf ball market shortage in 2021 and projected in 2022, we amateurs might look at the 2019-2020 models. Your thoughts.
  4. Having played both area many times I would vote for PS. As for costs you need to check the golf apps for costs and availability. WARNING stay away from north PS courses in the late afternoon unless you like high winds. Other than that it is beautiful that time of the year.
  5. I don’t think GPS is to be compared to Arccos. One is a distance measurement and the other is a Sara collection system plus DME. Your thoughts would be appreciated.
  6. They look like mine. Mine also came with the same shafts but different grips. The previous owner might have had them re gripped.
  7. I went WFPB almost six years ago. In the first 4 years I dropped 105 lbs, was taken off my BP meds and statins. Your energy level should go up. If you lose swing speed it could be due to not exercising your muscles. My swing speed is the same before I lost all the weight. My handicap dropped from 23 to 16. I believe it is because I am more focused and don’t get tired at the end of the round. I walk my course in North Atlanta that is very hilly. For those that think this is unusual watch the movies the Game Changers (Netflix) and Eat to Live on YouTube. Good luck and look for your recipes on Pinterest and YouTube.
  8. Keep it in the short grass and work on chipping and putting.
  9. Read the 2021 golf ball report from my golf spy. It is the best.
  10. I belong to a semi private course. We have similar issues but attempt to resolve them with a men's, women's and senior's associations to reduce all of the issues you have brought up. I have belonged to 3 other clubs in the past and it comes down to the club management and the members working together every time. We have different leagues and tournaments that attempt to engage all the members to come play with different members, guests and coed. The leagues and membership associations communicate to the membership about the issues you defined. We help the superintendent with divots by having the senior association meet once a month early in the morning and fill divots. We send out videos on slow play, why repair a divot (we have Bermuda fairways and rough) raking bunkers and how to repair a ball mark. Next time you join a club, ask in advance about leagues, associations and does the club have the staff to meet your standards. Some people think because they belong to a country club they think its Augusta National. Good luck.
  11. I watch MSG all the time. I find most of his tips excellent and his sense of humor makes his videos worth watching. The video he did on chipping has lowered my scores by 5 strokes.
  12. We have a place at Barefoot Resort in NMB. We belong to the Dye course but also play the Norman, Love and Fazio courses with our friends. You can’t go wrong with most of the courses in the area from NMB to Merrill’s Inlet and some of the courses in North Carolina. If you love golf, the greater Myrtle Beach area is the best.
  13. Get fitted by a fitter that comes recommended by good golfers. If you go to anyone that claims they can fit you, be careful. I was fit by someone that had a Trackman who could see my swing speed and launch angle and other pertinent information. Then he got me into a shaft that was right for me after we tried five different shaft(I am a senior). Then he installed the shaft correctly by testing each shaft before he installed them. This is where the amateurs fail most of the time. My guy has has two of the long distance driving contestants that told me no one touches their clubs accept Al. He is in North Myrtle Beach SC. I will give you his contact information if you ever get down there. Good Luck.
  14. I am looking to purchase an electric caddie. I am 70 years old and hate golf carts.
