  1. Based upon your swing speed and driver distance you should be able to get it around 230 ish or so.
  2. Have you ever tried teeing off with a 3wood instead of a driver, some people find them easier to hit than driver?
  3. The Last two years I have played my best golf since high school, I dropped my handicap from an 8 to a 3.6 during that time. I play in a Wednesday night 9 hole men’s league at my club and I probably play every other weekend, practice chipping and putting once a week and will go out on my course and play 4-5 holes a couple of times a week. I played in about 6 tournaments last year and am going to do the same thing this year. My goal this year is to try and get to a 0 in two years, to do that I’ve got to get more rounds under par, I was able to do it 3 times last year with my all time low of a -4 (67)at my home course. I also have got to play better at courses named not my home course and be more consistent in tournaments. what’s your goal?
  4. I think there has to be a balance between your confidence and playing smart. Here is an example, today on a long par 4 I hit a good drive but was in the rough with a terrible lie, I had 175 to the pin and 165 to cover a pond, my short game is the strength of my game, I punched out to fairway trying to get 100 yards to the pin which is my perfect gap wedge, I hit a good shot to about 8 feet and made it for par. My point is because of the confidence in my short game, I played smart and made a par, a couple of years ago I would have tried to muscle it out of the rough and would have probably made double 4 out of 5 times.
  5. I bought Two pairs of Duca del Cosma about two months ago and love them.
  6. I might have to take the plunge and buy a dozen and do an unofficial review when it warms up and stops raining here in Indiana.
  7. I recently purchased a used Autoflex 505x shaft with a Callaway tip on it from Cody and I put it on my new Rogue ST LS and lowered to 8 degrees loft and I have increased about 20 yards in carry but the biggest surprise is that it is actually more accurate, I can’t wait to see what it does when it warms up and the fairways get harder.
  8. Anyone tried any of these Clear Golf balls, I see Charl Schwartzel is sporting their hat? Balls are $58 a dozen! https://cleargolf.com/pages/golf
  9. Not so much a drill but maybe more a practice method, I go to an empty hole on the course and hit a ball from 150, 125, 100, 75, 50 and 25 yards.
  10. I’ll be interested in your progress, don’t forget the short game either, I believe it’s where amateur’s can really succeed.
  11. I get wanting to hit it longer and coming into greens with gap wedges even from the rough = better tour scoring but the stats say it’s not more consistent, that’s why when they set up US Opens with high thick rough scores go up.
  12. Not trying to say a fade was bad, I guess I just never noticed what a high percentage it was being used, back in the day the pros would curve it according to the hole design.
  13. Interesting article but I also read recently that driving accuracy of the pros has dropped the last 20 years but even with that scoring has gone down.
  14. I’ve been watching the Valero Texas Open this morning and it seems like 3 out of 4 pros are playing a cut, why do you think this is so?
  15. Agree, short game, short game! It Will improve your scores, when you get confidence around the greens, getting green misses up and down for pars, it takes pressure off your approach shots. Approach shots over 150 are my weakness but I am pretty consistent getting chips or pitches up and down for par so I don’t stress over missing greens, on the flip side, get me under 150 and I’m deadly. I practice short game shots at least twice a week on my club’s practice area and once a week I’ll find an open area on the course and hit a ball to the green from 150, 125, 100, 75, 50, 25. It has really helped me the last two years.
  16. Great article, I don’t think people talk enough about the mental aspect and playing smart and to your strengths.
  17. Sounds like your on the right path, I could never swing a tree like that lol.
  18. I Think it depends on your tempo, I have a really quick transition so I use stiff shaft wedges.
  19. Finally got my Rogue LS and even though the weather has been horrendous we did get a couple of days in the 60’s and I’m amazed so far how straight it is, I was playing about a 30 yard hook with my Srixon and with this beaut it’s either straight or a tight draw. I will be interested to see the distance when it warms up and the fairways harden up a bit.
  20. I have not yet, it’s next on my list though.
  21. Purgatory Golf Course You don’t have to be a low-handicap golfer to enjoy Purgatory Golf Club, but you do have to love a challenge. Stretched out over 218 acres, this links-style course has something for all skill levels, and provides a glorious golf experience that will keep you coming back. Purgatory is known for: Multiple tee boxes: Choose from six tees on every hole, with each providing the right challenge for your handicap. We take great care with the design and alignment of each tee, pointing you toward the best possible shot toward the cup. Course length: Change the course to make it your own: Purgatory has the longest sets of tees (7,754 yards from the tips) as well as the shortest (4,562 yards from the far forwards) in Indiana. Bunkers: Live dangerously by hitting over and around our 130+ bunkers, each filled with white, crushed limestone. It’s almost plush. Strategic golfers can avoid most of the bunkers, but there are enough in the way of the cup to keep it fun and interesting. Our signature hole, #17, is an island green surrounded by two acres of bunkers. (insert image) Imagine the thrill of hitting the perfect tee shot over that sand and onto the green. Tall grass: Watch that slice. Most of the fairways are lined with tall, prairie grass rough. Most people say they prefer to hit out of a bunker than the tall grass. Risk & Reward: Which do you choose: Do you play it safe at the expense of a higher score? Or do you go for glory at the risk of hearing your ball plunk into the water or whistle into the grass? Purgatory offers the classic risk and reward dilemma. It’s all just part of the fun.
