  2. I had a similar experience in the one lesson I took last summer. The pro asked me to warm up with my 6 iron, then after 10 or so whacks had me aim at a pole in the middle of the range. You would have thought I never picked up a club before. Still not there with hitting to the target, but definitely something I know I should pick up again
  3. Narrator: He did play better at his home course, but not much better
  4. My home course for the last few years was the public Garrison Golf Club in Garrison, NY. But the guy who owned it, decided to close it up and donate the land to a Shakespeare Theater group. Can't say I don't chuckle when I see articles about him running into opposition to make it permanent. Now we play most of our golf out of the "semi-private" NY Country Club in Spring Valley, NY. Nice track with challenging holes. Only downside is the greens fees on weekends.
  5. Totally a crazy game. Played yesterday at a very hard course, was luck that I shot a 110. Hopefully i play better at my home course on Monday
  6. Before this year, I've broken 90 three times in my 20+ years of playing. Stuck in between 92 and 97 for the majority of the last 10+ years. Then 2 of my last 3 rounds I've shot an 89. Biggest reason I think is because I took my driver out of play. Not nearly as many pop ups or wayward shots, and for the most part my 3W goes far enough not to be a huge loss distance wise. Also I've been fortunate enough to cut back on 3 putts in those two rounds, while also playing smarter golf. Which we all know is easier said than done.
  7. Switched mine out for the first time in 15 years last year. Maybe I'll switch out more frequently going forward, but I'll use them until I don't like them anymore most likely
  8. My FIL used to get their clubs when they were Warrior. I still have a couple of their wedges. Was good for a beginner, don't think I would use them now. Sad to hear they've gone so downhill though
  9. I'm the same way, always try to grab a logo ball from all the courses I played. Fortunately have been able to get a ball at almost all the courses I've played except for a few. Like Rancho Park, where Arnold Palmer shot a 13 on the par 5 9th hole, they said they didn't have any. Played Ferry Point last fall, and they say they ran out. Thought about writing the course name on one of the balls I used during the round, but this sounds like a better idea. Not sure though I have the technical skills to pull it off. I also want to play a round in all 50. Right now I'm up to 15, try to knock off a new state at least every two years. Worst part is that there are 5 states where I probably could have snuck in a round and just didn't get it done.
  10. Played them a bunch over the past year. Not horrible. Like the performance of Bridgestone E12 Contact better, but the KV2 has been a solid play for half the price
  11. Searched and didn't see any posts for the Ocean Course at Atlantis Bahamas. Has anyone played it? It's more than I would want to pay to play, but on vacation so going to give it a shot. Any and all reviews are appreciated
  12. Had a Cleveland 3W for years that was just taking up space in my bag. Bought a new Titleist 3W this year and loved it when I first got it, fell out of love in the middle of the year, then back in love these last few rounds. It's kind of like my Driver in the love department
  13. My buddy used to light a joint halfway through our rounds. Personally I loved it because he usually started to play worse and I would win our match i don't get exercise from golf. I am on the course because I find the game to be fun. Walking is not fun in my opinion. I caddied in HS and College, where I walked the course, that was work. Now it's for fun and walking isn't fun.
  14. Jealous of you that say your top local round is under $75 on weekends. My cheapest local round, on a decent course, starts at $78 with cart. I can play a state course with cart for around $56, but the conditions deteriorate as the year goes on and decent chance of a 5 hour round on weekends as well. The other day played Ferry Point, the jewel of NYC's public courses. Cost over $200 for a weekday round with cart. Have to say with the cost and getting my butt handed to me by the setup, can't say it was enjoyable at all.
  15. Wish I had something like that by me. Because of life, need to play on weekends and tee off before 11am. Cheapest by me is $56 with cart, all the way up to $115. Nice job on the cheap 30 pack. I'm happy when I get a case of Ultra for $24.
  16. Thanks for responding. My usual max is around $150. One of the reasons why I haven't booked a trip to places like Pebble and Bandon. The greens fee for the course I mentioned is even more than Bandon at it's peak and around the same as Pebble.
  17. i have a chance to play an exclusive private course that has hosted multiple US Open's, all I have to do is pay the greens fee. Don't want to give the name because then people might know how much it costs. i will say it's located in the Northeast. Just curious what others would think is a fair price
  18. Where are you getting a $15 round of golf and a case of beer for so little?
  19. Have a more golf shirts than I can wear. Most of them were purchased for $30 or less. Right now I only buy new shirts if I'm on vacation or go to a nice club, which unfortunately always cost way more than $30 But besides clubs, I usually notice what apparel my playing partners are wearing. I think it's kind of hard not to
  20. Never walk. Was a caddy as teenager, I walked the course then because it was my job, Now if I am on the golf course it is to enjoy myself, not work. So no walking for me, unless I'm on a course that demands it, and in that case better be a top notch course
  21. I'm rocking with 4 wedges and it definitely has helped my game: 43, 48, 52 and 56 degree
  22. Since I don't play competitive golf, I have 17 clubs currently in my bag. D, 3W, 5W, 2-4 H, 4-9 irons, PW, AW, 52, 56 and P. Also since I play an array of courses all over the place I never know what I will need on any given day. On the rare occasion where I'm playing in a match and not playing Wolf, I'll take out my 3W, 3H, and 4I. But that is few and far between
