  1. I don't find Sam 76 good at any time of the year.
  2. Because I don't hate myself enough in my normal, everyday life.
  3. All three of them are no more than 185 yds. One is 135 yds..... the other two are roughly the same distance... one down hill and the other up hill. Those two are the worst...lol. The course only has four par 4's. I was told the three in a row on the front was due to land available at the time the course was built and it was necessary to get all nine holes on the front. It is a short course with no sand... 6000 yds. from the tips. It is very tight and requires decent accuracy off the tee. There is trouble on both sides of every hole on the course. There are 5 lakes/ponds to deal wit
  4. I don't care how they play. I generally prefer to play with people that are at least somewhat at my level, but I really like playing with much better players than myself.... it keeps me "thinking" and focused. I don't mind playing with people that are not accomplished at the game or just out for a good time.... I just hate when they want advice and lessons that I am in no way qualified to give...lol.
  5. This might be a dumb question, but how do you 3D print a "forged" iron? I'm not a tech savvy guy, so I don't understand how this stuff works...lol.
  6. I have the same issue at my home course. There are 3 par 3's in a row on the front 9. The greens are small to medium size. If you don't hit somewhere in the middle of the green/s, there is no way the ball will stay on the green/s. They slope away from the middle on 3 sides. If the pin is in the front, you don't want to be on the green because, if you don't sink the downhill, breaking putt, it is almost certainly a bogey... if not, double or triple. Those 3 holes will make or break a round.... and I've experienced both over the years...lol.
  7. What is this retirement?
  8. I'd be happy with either. But if I had to pick, I'd take par on every hole.
  9. Definitely alcohol. I was a better player 10 years ago than I am now. Age, pain, divorce and not playing near as much as I used to is detrimental to playing well. These days I just have fun take it in stride. I have good rounds and bad rounds, but alcohol is the biggest contributor as to why I don't score well..... and I don't really care...lol.
  10. It's stuff like this that makes this place so great.... always something to learn.
  11. I don't really care about "loft jacking" as it's called. I look at it more as knowledge gained over the course of the last couple of decades or so in the development and technology of club making and fitting. I have no opinions, strong or otherwise, about anyone that cares about the topic, and vice versa.
  12. I'm 60. I used to legit hit my driver 250 -60 yards... with the occasional lucky, almost 300 yards on a roll. I average about 230 these days. Look at it this way..... 260 out of play is worthless...lol.
  13. Interesting. Is the metal just as strong as forged or cast? What is durability like? This opens up a whole new avenue for technology in clubs.
  14. My biggest concern has nothing to do with actual loft or what's stamped on the iron.... it's can I play decent with them and enjoy my time playing. I'm not sure why there is any concern at all about lofts and numbers stamped on a club. I suppose that's why I just stay out this topic...lol.
  15. After struggling so far this season to hit the ball consistently, I finally had a decent round. I decided not to drink beer this particular round...only water. I made a conscience effort to take more club than I though necessary and to keep timing and tempo at the front of my brain. The result was a 38 - 41 for a 79 total. That's the first time this years I've had a 7 in front of my score. It could have been better, but I just burned the edge of three birdie attempts. I'm learning I can still play decent.... if I just allow myself to do so.
  16. If only my PW was as long as his 53*...lol.
  17. Yup! Normally, no. But.... those are the rules right now. I have to make an amendment to my reply.............. I personally wouldn't count it if it was more than a foot from the cup.
  18. I keep my eyes on the ball, and I try to keep them there through the stroke. I can't not look after I hit the ball, but I do try to stare at the spot after hitting it. Not always successful...lol.
  19. Right now, my killer move is ego driven. I'm 60 years old and I'm used to driving the ball 260/70 and hitting my 7 iron 160/5. I have two junk shoulders and a finicky back. I call myself a "tweener" golfer right now. I can't get past what I used to be able to do ,from I can now do. I'm getting better...lol. I now take a club or two more (I still hate it) and make sure I get there. I can still get the driver out there when everything is clicking (rare). This is the year I need to come to terms with age and pain. So.... my killer move is way over swinging... trying to maintain what o
  20. So.... anyone who is following this thread..................... I made an adjustment to my TS3 this morning. I went to B1 (3/4* upright) and took the adjustable weight to maximum draw. I immediately started to crush it with a very slight fade. I can play this. I hit 11 of 14 driver hole fairways. I seem to be getting my swing back a bit. The coming weeks will be interesting. I may need to get back closer to neutral setting as my swing improves. Losing weight is really good, but it doesn't come without consequences to your golf swing.... at least for me. I'll keep you updated.... if anyo
  21. Why not take your wedge to the grinder and take as much off the heel as you like?
  22. I wish I would have chosen the TS2 over the 3. It hit both well on the launch monitor, but I'm struggling with it on the course. I still think it's me and not the club because I have had really good days with it.... just not very consistent from round to round. I chose the 3 because I couldn't get past the "weird" look of the 2... to me.
  23. Everything except straight and in the air is in play these days.
  24. Sippin some shine and diggin on Mahogany Rush.
