  1. Saturday Club Championship Hole number 14 452 yard par 4. This is normally a bogey or worse. One of the tougher par 4's. Drive is up hill and if you are in the fairway most likely have a side hill lie. Approach shot is typically long and downhill to a pretty small green. Pin was tucked back left on Saturday. Short in the bunker long bounces into the hazard. Hit a really good drive for me on this hole, for some reason on of the holes I usually don't drive well. Approach was 175 downhill into the wind. Decide to go for the pin, hitting a draw off the side hill lie. Hit the exact shot I saw in my head, slight draw right at the pin. Ball end up checking up and spinning back leaving me 37' for birdie. Missed the put about an inch to the right. I will take par on this hole all day.
  2. I purchased the Mizuno px 921 hot metal pros last year after getting fitted. Received them in October near the end of the season. It took me I would say about 5 rounds(plus range time) to get comfortable.
  3. My Home course is Hobbits Glen Golf Club in Columbia, MD. I grew up playing this course in the 80' and early 90's. 25 years later I joined back last October. Personally my favorite course in the area. Various team options. State Farm Senior open was played here back in the 90's. I never get bored playing as some of the other courses in the area I considered joining. If you are ever in the area let me know always happy to have guests play the course. Black 7013/Blue 6596/Hybrid 6400/White 6008/Gold 5431/Green 5020 90% of the time I play the Blue tees
  4. 1st hole #2 Hobbits Glen Par 5- Normally when I hit a good fade over the trees on the right, I end up going for it and usually end up with a bad result(water, push right into the trees etc) maybe 1 our of 5 ends up on or just short.. Today decided was going to play it smart. Payed off and sunk a 26' foot putt for the birdie. Probably haven't learned my lesson and will go for it next time again 2nd 16h hole Hobbits Glen Par 3. - This was one of the shots where I did exactly wanted I wanted and had the distance perfect. Set up or hit a slight fade choose a 7 since pin was back and I knew if I hit it well I could get it back there, but little risk of going over the green. 13' putt for birdie
  5. Just saw this!! I am in only an hour drive so will be golf only, both days.
  6. I prefer to walk and walk majority off rounds. If I am playing with group where everyone is riding then I will Ride. Usually playing with co-workers or rounds with occasional friend where it is more social I will ride. Most rounds i play as a single and join a group, I almost always walk in this case.
  7. Played my 1st 2 rounds with my arcoss link and sensors. Overall I am happy with how the performed. 2 issues I had are 1) not detecting driver, missed about 80% of my drives. 2) extra puts, but those seem easy enough to fix. I kept forgetting to mark the flag on a bunch of holes yesterday.
  8. Manage to play 12 holes on Friday and 18 Sunday. Extremely happy and excited to play a few more rounds and figure out the yardage. Was long on a bunch of holes just because not use to the distances. Sunday was windy 10-15 knots with gust to 20 so made it tougher. Somewhere between 20-30 yards longer per club. So much better hitting 7,9,W irons into par 3's v's 4 and 6 irons. The feeling/Sound at impact is drastically different then my Ping Eye 2 Copper beryllium so that will take some getting used to, bunch of shots felt like mishits but were perfect. Still need the additional wedges to come in and likely will get a hybrid/wood fitting. My 5 wood is about 40 years old and my 3 wood I just can't hit at all. So need to fill the void at distances longer then my 5 iron.
  9. Ordered clubs on August 3rd after my 2nd fitting finally received the call today that the irons arrived and can pick up tonight. Still waiting for the wedges, but excited to get them and try them out tomorrow. First new set of clubs irons in 30 years!!!!! Mijunzo JPX 921 Hot metal pro 5-GW Nippon Modus 105 stiff shafts.
  10. Thanks great advice and correct replacing my irons and wedges. but not woods and putter.
  11. My Arccos sensor and Caddy link arrived last week. I have new clubs on order, who knows when they will arrive, likely sitting on a container ship off the coast :). So trying to decide if it is worth it to start with Arccos on my current set or just hold off till the new clubs get here? Any thoughts?
  12. I am trying to figure out a club or 2 to drop to lighten the load a little when walking :).
  13. Agree with you guys. Cheaters are always going to find away to cheat. Most groups I play with don't pay that much attention to validate or in validate a score. I am probably harder on myself then most people I get put with when playing.
  14. Been playing Prov1's for years but ordered a dozen Vice Pro's and was really happy with them yesterday. Will probably alternate the vice pro and prov1's for a few rounds and decide which to stick with.
