  1. I currently have A flex shafts on my irons. I'm considering switching them to regular, as I seem to be consistently hitting left with them when I do a full power swing, which from what I've read is the expected direction for shaft flex problems. They're pretty old irons in general, but I can't really afford a new set at the moment, nor do I think it would be really worthwhile (40ish HDCP). I would have to buy a heat gun and the epoxy. How difficult is it for a beginner to line it up and do it? I've looked at some videos and it doesn't look like the hardest thing ever, but it definitely has more steps than replacing grips, which I did for the first time a few weeks ago (rip the grips I just put on them). I'd probably swap some shafts from some older clubs I have and just switch them out. Thoughts?

    Marks Par Three

    This is a well-maintained, fun, short course. It's locally owned and operated. Some holes play pretty similarly; the challenge lies in their greens. If you hit it in the wrong place, a three putt isn't out of the question. Some greens are heavily sloped and lead to trouble if you miss your downhill putt. There are a couple par 4s that shake things up. The environment is well respected on the course; walking by the lake you'll hear fish and other wildlife jumping out of the water on occasion. The cost of the course is very reasonable. It's a really fun course to walk on; on some holes, it's actually easier to walk than ride. There is a wide range of golf courses in the area, but Marks acts as a solid place for both beginners who lack distance and more experienced players who want to be challenged by small, sloping greens.

    Marks Par Three

    From their website: "Our locally-owned and operated executive style 18 hole course has been challenging experienced and beginning golfers for over 50 years. Since 1964, we've been providing a quality golf experience at affordable prices." This is a well-maintained, fun, short course. It's locally owned and operated.

  4. I currently play whatever ball I grab out of my bag of found decent condition balls. I've started trying to commit to using only one ball for putting, which right now is a srixon soft feel. The srixon are the first new golf balls I've bought in a very long time, and I mainly got them because they were on sale a dollar a ball. I've gone through a lot of them, and am now saving the last 6 for putting, as I honestly didn't notice any difference in my play for staying consistent with one ball; my swing is not consistent enough for it to matter to be honest. I've played both 2 and 3 piece balls and currently can't recognized the difference yet, which isn't surprising as I have just started trying to get good at golf.
  5. I love a nice old fashioned at the end of a round. Sipping away sitting on the patio is a lovely way to end the day.

  7. How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score? I've been playing golf for 25 years. My grandfather started me early. I didn't focus on it until the past 6 months though, and only went out at max a few times a year. Now I'm playing at least weekly and going out a lot to practice. I'm at about 42 hdc right now, with my best round at a full length 18 hole course being 107. What do you love about golf? I love walking out in the morning with dew on my feet, the sun rising, and slicing straight into the trees on my first shot. It's fantastic. What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies? I've been looking for other conversations about golf and hope to find a place I'm comfortable to lurk and post and maybe meet new friends. Where are you from? What is your home course? I'd say my home course at the moment is Idle Creek in Terre Haute, IN. I play a lot of courses, but we're leaning towards a membership there next year, which would ramp my golf play up drastically. What are the best and worst things about golf in your region? The best thing is the quality and depth of courses in the area. There's different levels of challenge available with different focuses. There's some gorgeous Midwest views on the courses as well. The worst thing is the lack of available clinics for adults to improve or get started. Private lessons are of course available, but it's hard to meet other newbies and have regular practice affordably. What do you do for a living? I'm a business systems analyst. I work with a lot of different sets of data, tie them together, design and run audits, etc. How’d you pick your user name? My username has followed me for years since my Xbox days as a teen. I loved Star wars expanded universe, and it's an obscure reference to a single novel where the natives of the planet refered to Luke as Master Walker of Sky.
