  1. Signed up and ready to watch someone else dominate over me.
  2. I have 4, or 3 if you group Callaway and Odyssey together. At one point I had only 1 brand. Titleist from Driver through putter.
  3. Overthinking is a huge part of many games, myself included. I am a fan of listening to the Par Train. They talk a lot about the mental aspect, as I believe it's a big part of Evan's work background. I often start the day pretty quiet, and the noise gets louder. I think the majority of everyone's handicap could drop multiple shots (depending on current handicap) if we could all think less. I agree with a comment above. I've recently played with a 15 who thinks he can shoot at the flag stick every time. I'm about a 5 with 35 years golf experience and have found the more I play, the worse it gets.
  4. This past weekend, I worked on finding out where I was hitting my driver on the clubface, and to work on hitting the ball first on my irons. I worked on starting with a little more tilt at driver address. I have, for years, lined up off the toe on both irons and woods. Irons was to combat heel hits, while I don't know why on woods. I lined up both on the middle and made adjustments. Not shockingly, I hit more on the middle of the driver when lining up on the middle. Irons, were a different challenge. I do miss left, as well, and feel the club is slightly closed at impact. Since it didn't matter, I lined up on the middle, and did much better hitting it more in the middle of the clubface. A little low, but not on the heel. The majority were solid, but my misses were hitting the ground before the club by an inch or so. Will try to improve this coming weekend.
  5. I can't remember if I ever posted on this, but my favorite is pure leather wrap. Very expensive, but I had that on my college clubs. Always tacky, especially for a guy at the time that didn't wear gloves, and I have sweaty hands. When I got rid of those clubs, I pretty much anything that was full cord. I tried old Lamkin, but they felt like they melted in my hands years ago. Now, I'm not sure, but still miss my leather, but also unwilling to pay for them.
  6. 2021 was probably the most golf I played in almost 10 years. My handicap did go down to the low 4's but I feel I am, at times, far off from where I really can and should be. I have some good rounds and some terrible rounds. I'd be ok with a slightly higher handicap if I was more consistent. That's a total lie. I want it even lower. Moving to Pinehurst has been great, even if I didn't play any of the Pinehurst courses this year. A couple times at Country Club of North Carolina, some rounds at Whispering Pines, and Foxfire, and some rounds at Midland Country Club. I can't complain with a 10 play pass for only $99. Hopefully in 2022 I make some adjustments to my dated bag.
  7. I love the posts here. I've always been a spike guy, however my BIL picked me up for a round, and just wore his shoes without ever changing them. I'm very interested in the idea of spiked when wet, spikeless when dry. I never even considered that.
  8. I think I have a limit of $250, unless of course it was kicking into something to play Augusta or Pine Valley (which I know aren't options). I won't pay the $400+ to play number 2 here in Pinehurst, but would play $150 or so to play #1, 3, 5 etc or even drive up the road and pay the same $150 for Tobacco Road.
  9. I'm so far gone from the specs game. Still playing clubs fitted back in 1998. This is crazy to me, but makes sense
  10. I haven't been on a golf course in about 4 weeks now, and I hit balls for the first time in about 6 weeks yesterday. I struggle with 2 things. Pull hook misses, and hitting just before the ball on my irons. Yesterday, I focused on trying to hit the ball first. I had some really bad shots, and it gets frustrating. I placed a tee about 2 inches past my ball and made that my focus. It felt different, but when I hit it right, it really made a difference. i'm thinking of taking another 2-3 weeks off before playing a few late fall or early winter golf.
  11. I played 18 at Country Club of Whispering Pines in the saturday morning men's league. Started iffy, and was 3 over through 4. I started thinking I would be hitting it bad. Shot 85 there 3 weeks ago. Turned it around well. had back to back birdies, lipped out on a 3rd. had some good runs, and finished rough, but ended up with a 75. I feel I'm close. Handicap broke through the 5 barrier to a 4.8. Playing Country Club of North Carolina tomorrow. Not sure if it's our own balls or a scramble. Either way, looking forward to the day off.
  12. Played Foxfire Red Fox course this past saturday. Hit ball better than I had in a while. 78% of greens. Had several birdie putts, made 2. Also dropped a Triple, Double, bogey, and 13 Pars for a 75. helped our team win some cash. I enjoy playing the course. It's kind of wide, and fits my 250 yard drives perfectly. I played it well a couple weeks ago, and felt confident when i started. Also won 2 pins and our team won 3 skins. It was a fun day even though it was 95 degrees.
  13. I would rather play in better conditions. primarily, I mean good greens and good rough, since I don't hit the fairway. I think it's about having fun, and trying to score good for me. Sometimes seeing subpar conditions really affect how I play, since I get irritated from the get go.
  14. I could go so many ways. A second putter for when my first stinks. Maybe putting my hybrid back in, or my 2 iron.
  15. What an absolute crapshow yesterday was. A course I shot 77 on last week, I shot 84 on yesterday. It was almost 100% due to driving. Putting wasn't great, but only one 3 putt. If I was trying to hook, it started right and kept going. If i wanted to slice, it started left and kept going (I'm left handed). It's made me want to take a few weeks off.
