  1. I want to see the TaylorMade Tour Response against the big boys for swing speeds under 100. I really like the ball and have been watching some test videos against the Pro V 1. It seems to hold its own for $10 or more savings per box. Sent from my Pixel 6 using Tapatalk
  2. Crazy good - playing in a CGA 2-man best ball at Pinehurst #8, I hit a long pull on a par 3 that left me at the bottom of a hill at the back left of a highly elevated green. I couldn't see the green surface at all and I was in a thick rough. The pin was front left and the green was hard as a rock with a good six feet of slope back to front. Virtually impossible shot. My partner (who is much better than me) missed the green short left (short-sided) with an almost impossible shot to get close. We were resigned to me being over par and him having to hit a long putt for par. What I'm about to tell you is what I was told. I was so far below the green I couldn't get to a point to see what happened until it was over. I hit a flop shot almost straight up. It landed on the fringe which slowed it enough that it started trickling down the green, slowly picking up speed. It rolled a good 50+ft down the green, hit the pin dead center and fell in for birdie. We won the tournament by one stroke and qualified for the CGA championship. Crazy bad - Playing the Grandover Resort West course, I was playing a par 5 (#12 for those that know the course). The cart path runs up the right side and is all up hill (with several curves) to the landing area (well above the fairway) after crossing a small bridge just past the tee box. I pushed a solid contact drive right and it landed just right of the path at the top of the hill and bounced left. We couldn't see where it ended up. As the next guy was about to hit one of the other guys told him to stop and pointed at the cart path. My ball was coming back down the path. The rough was high enough to create a wall on both sides of the path so the ball couldn't roll off the path. It ended up in a crack between boards on the bridge just past the tee box. About a 240 yard drive that ended up 20 yards from the tee box and unhittable. Sent from my Pixel 6 using Tapatalk

  5. Talk with your course about adding hybrid tees that use red and white and call them senior. No new tee boxes have to be built and it's easy to keep up with (kills one argument you have heard). My course does this with green tees using white and blue. They paint half the tee marker green depending on whichever tee is used (ie blue/green or white/green). They base it on the tee shot distance required/difficulty and it works great. Sent from my Pixel 6 using Tapatalk
  6. I use the Pride Professional tees. Bought a combo pack of driver and par 3 several years ago and am still working with that pack. Sent from my Pixel 6 using Tapatalk
  7. I rarely hit a runner, I almost always go high. I used to play a 60/4 but after playing around with an 8 I bought a SM9 60/8. I found I can still get the ball up just as easy, even on hard pan, but when the grass is growing against you and kind of gnarly (even though it's still tightly mowed), I can get the club through it. My 60/4 could get hung up.

  11. I found a spotless Kirkland signature Sat and played it alongside my normal B330 RXS and a Snell MT Red I was testing. It wasn't as long as either the B330 or Red. I'm sure it fits certain swings differently, but it was noticeably not as good for. I really liked the Red though, just not sure which I like better, Red or Black.

  13. If you are retired or work 3rd shift and can start watching golf at 4:30 ET on Thurs and Fri you might want to join the Callaway Fanbeat Challenge...LOL You can still earn smaller prizes if you don't watch from the beginning but your chances of winning the big prize are probably pretty slim since you have to answer every question correctly and they are timed. https://www.fanbeat.com/golfchannel/?referral=augTGj&utm_source=golfchannel-app&utm_medium=app&utm_campaign=golfchannel-app
  14. I'm just going to say it, this royally sucks! Even though the site wasn't always stable with changes, etc, it was the best format out there for fantasy golf in my opinion.
