  1. Agree with preferring a sedan for travelling with golf clubs. Haven't found a trunk big enough since our 2006 Malibu. Will have to check out the Impala (always buy used)
  2. True, but I have to say, not that I play with a ton of young guys, it's rarely the young guys acting stupid. It's the middle aged to old guys.
  3. Nothing sadder than an old guy who thinks he still has game. Hard to imagine that they can't realize the girl's find them repulsive. I have seen cart girls who definitely play into that behavior too for the tip money. And that's their perogative but might make some of these old farts think they're all that way. I once played in a league and it was really hot. This cart girl is wearing a lacey nothing of a top, kinda like a flimsy halter top, no bra. She's well endowed. Anyway she comes racing up to us through this bumpy patch of rough and lo and behold, out pops a boob. She of course acts all embarrassed but I find it hard to believe she didn't know what was going to happen driving that fast over that bumpy terrain. I bet that boob popped out multiple times that day. Of course guys were tipping her $5-10 bills. There were two groups of us one on the green and the other right on the next tee. I bet she made $50 in tips on that hole alone.
  4. I tend to agree. This is the golden age of drivers. If you can't hit these straight it's not the driver. At least not the head, the shaft is more important nowadays. And unless you're totally misfit in the shaft you should still be able to keep it in play. All the heads are extremely forgiving.
  5. If you plan on playing a few rounds get the Prime Times card! It's $250 but with one card you can take a foursome at very reduced rates. I had already booked some courses for the week we stayed but still bought the card and saved money. Wish I had known about it beforehand. For every round you or two you play you get a free round, plus they give you $50 or $100 shop credit. It would be an absolute steal for your family. Some of the courses are King's North, Long Bay, World Tour, TPC, Myrtlewood, and about 20 more. Prime Times Tee Times - Myrtle Beach's #1 Golf Membership : Prime Times Tee Times (primetimescard.com)
  6. World Tour and King's North are very nice courses but nothing earth shattering. If you're looking for just good golf TPC is tough and nice condition. Caledonia, True Blue and Tidewater are usually held up as the MB courses that stand above all others. But are in south MB.
  7. Wolf Creek is crazy and fun. Conestoga in Mesquite is almost as good. All the Paiute courses are excellent. Coyote Springs is in the middle of nowhere but a tough Nicklaus course. You'd need to rent a car for these. Boulder Creek, ( not the city course) is a surprisingly affordable option that is nice. Primm has some nice courses, the name of the place escapes me now, I believe the courses are Lexington and Concorde?
  8. Whenever someone compares walkers to riders they always use the example of "bad" riders. They wait until each guy hits, they don't go to their ball, etc. What about bad walkers? They can just as easily walk down the middle of the FW talking when each has hit to a different side, then wait for each guy to hit, etc. That's just bad golf, period, walking or riding. Both sides playing intelligently walking is simply slower, especially on courses with decent distances from green to next tee. Nothing to get defensive about.
  9. Band-It elbow brace will do the trick Band-It - Tennis Elbow Support - Walmart.com - Walmart.com
  10. This was me to a tee. I used to play after work with my Dad. We would rush to the course to beat the league. To get loose I would swing my driver with the head cover on and let my arms collapse at the top to pull me a little more. It eventually worked it's way into my swing and really messed me up. Years later and I still overswing but not as bad.
  11. In fairness to the marshall, they probably don't get many 2 and 6 handicaps trying to play the tips, it's more likely 15's. So trying to get people to move up isn't that bad an idea. Once he saw them hit he should have left them alone, though.
  12. Rain gloves are likely the answer
  13. Isn't the sad truth about hi COR drivers the fact that only higher swing speeds can really take advantage of the higher COR? So while a 100+ SS will pick up the advertised 20 yards the slow swinging sap (me) who really needs the yards will get maybe 5? I've hit a .900 Cor driver and got nothing extra.
  14. Just the opposite, lofting down opens the face. But only if you then address the ball with the face square. edit: should have looked before posting. should've known this would already be addressed. It is counterintuitive at first. You would hood a club to deloft and keep a shot under a tree and open the face to add loft to an iron.
  15. Just bought a Cobra Speed Zone Extreme driver. One round so far and hit 10 of 12 fairways. Distance maybe a bit more than my M5, but it was wet so hopeful there'll be a little gain.
