  1. What you experienced seems to be the trend among young people. Hats on backwards, shirts not tucked in... standing on another person's line of play, yelling while other are trying to hit a shot. playing music loud enough to be heard a few holes away. Watching PGA, etc. on TV and listening to the verbal comments, yelling, etc. and it's somewhat promoted by the PGA... tells you what's to come for the future of golf. TOP GOLF is educating the next wave of golfers that we will be dealing with on the course. No one is trying to educate the up coming youngsters to the etiquette of the game we all have grown to love.. unfortunate.
  2. Relief from WHAT ???? Sounds like paradise rules... not golf

  4. I have putted cross handed for about 30 years now... have been chipping cross handed as well for about5 years.. trying to get the longer pitch shots to work cross handed too. sometimes I chip short delicate chips one handed using just my right hand and have become pretty good at it. I'm 76, 15 hdcp .. used to be better, but age has taken distance away unfortunately. Advice... Try chipping cross handed... seems that the pros are trying it and using it successfully. . use putting stroke, especially if you putt cross handed ... GOOD LUCK TO ALL..
  5. Great information from UNBIAS sources make it reliable. THANKS Giving people the opportunity to test new golf equipment is great. THANK YOU
  6. Gimmes are necessary to keep friends. personally, don't like them because there's no standard. Is it 1 foot, 2 feet, 3 feet, 4 feet or based on possible score... Spreads into competition, which doesn't protect the field. When you play with people that do gimmes, they usually don't follow the rules of golf in other areas. If you were to relate it to another sport, such as basketball. then missing a layup, should be rewarded with a point. sounds dumb, but that's effectively what gimmes do to the great game of golf. People see it in match play and then assume it applies to stroke play as well.
  7. Colors or lack thereof make golf a fun arena for attire. Everyone chooses what they're comfortable in and what their friends won't criticize them for wearing. I wear colors and white pants frequently and personally, I find it fun to see who says what. Some people just can't handle the comments and wear black/grey/brown every day... It's a fun environment for a social experiment. Enjoy your choice.
  8. Tested the Ping G425 MAX versus G430 MAX. other than the difference in sound, the clubs performed the same... I'm 75 and my swing speed with the driver is approx 77 mph ... so my testing may not be indicative of others with more speed.

  11. Love to hear your take on PXG's ball... From a distance... "lack of knowing" same factory, same dimple count 348, same basic construct... smells like a Kirkland ??? THANKS
  12. It seems to be the same ball that COSTCO is selling... same dimple pattern, same factory, etc. etc.

  16. There's a gun you can purchase that you put the ball in and select the yardage... might as well buy one of those and use it... GOLF IS A GAME OF INTEGRITY.... as stated by the USGA who doesn't trust you enough to post a round played by yourself... GO FIGURE... 18 holes of golf will tell you the real character of a person... it's all a matter of what impression you want others to have of you... whatever that is... GO FOR IT... SORRY... I'm a rules of golf official and love the game as it's supposed to be played...
  17. I think that fitting should be HONEST.... If someone comes in to get fit and displays an awful golf swinging ability, the fitter should tell them that it's a waste of your money to try to fit a bad golf swing, It defies logic if they think that a specific club/shaft selection will help fix a bad swing. Having said that, when you go to a retail golf store, you're going to get someone that is less proficient at fitting than going to a fitting specialist, but again... honesty should come before sales. being honest and telling the golfer that they would be much better off investing in lessons before spending the money being fitted and investing thousands in new equipment... but as usual, this will probably never have a priority in the club business even though it might create a life long customer .. SAD
  18. I have the Ping g425 driver and the new 0811 x driver... I bought the 7.5 degree driver hoping to get additional fairway roll... The driver is probably 15 to 20 yds shorter in carry than the Ping, but the overall distance is probably 5 to 10 yds more on firm fairways.... The sound of the 0811 x is dull, unless you hit exactly in the middle... not a very big sweet spot for a modern driver...
