  1. Twentysome years ago a guy at work was a basement club builder on the side. He built me a driver that consisted of a Callaway Warbird head on a 50" long steel shaft. (yes it was legal back then) It took me a small bucket of balls to learn how to hit that thing. After about 3 buckets and 4 rounds of golf, I started averaging 290 from the tee and hit about 70 % of the fairways.
  2. First Name and Location - Bill, Liberty Lake, Washington How do you keep your putting sharp through the winter? The berber carpet in the basement Current/Past Experience with putting mats - Have never had the chance to try one Go to www.birdieball.com and tell us which speed green you'd want to test - The medium speed would be my choice.
  3. First Name/State or Country of residence - Bill / Washington State Handicap - 5.0 GHIN Current irons in Play - Callaway Apex CF-19 The carry distance of the your 7 iron - 165 yds Thanks !
  4. I'm looking for a 2011 model of the original Taylormade Ghost Spider (not the S model). Any of them out there ? Thanks !
  5. I don't really listen or care what other players say about their drive lengths. It all comes down to the correct score on the card. When I hear guys say, "I hit that drive XXX yards", I just smile and nod. I rely heavily on my laser to give me the yardage to my target. My concern is where am I going to hit the drive to give me the best chance of getting on the green in regulation so I have a birdie putt. The internet is full of Long Drive Champions.
  6. If he was that upset, then he knew he was taking too long and was trying to deflect....
  7. Cool trailer and video. I used to build semi trailers back in the day and watching the construction phase of the video brought back some good memories.
  8. Relax, have fun with it, keep your expectations realistic, make new friends(and probably an enemy or 2), but above all, have fun with it.
  9. Congrats guys, very interested in your thoughts on these.

  11. Eastern Washington(state) where I live has some of the best value for courses that I have ever played. I've been on several trips to play golf over the years and my location is just pretty hard to beat. Most of the public courses around here are under $40 and the conditions are usually very good. There are a couple of higher end spendy options but those are destination courses and always in good condition as well.
  12. The wife and I are going to take a week vacation and head for San Diego. We want to go to a 3 day golf school in that area to improve our games and celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary. We attended the Kapalua Golf Academy for a 3 day school to celebrate our 5th anniversary and it really helped us both and was a lot of fun. Does anyone have suggestions or recommendations for a school in the SD area? I am not looking to break the bank on this trip....just sayin' Thanks!
  13. I agree with Kenny here, whole heartedly. I had a friend that had shoulder surgery and even though the surgeon told him not to golf for 5 months, he started hitting balls after 3. Big mistake. Now his shoulder clicks and hurts on almost every full swing shot. I had both of my shoulders done over the last 4 years. I followed the doctors orders explicitly and almost doubled up on the rehab reps. No issues whatsoever with either shoulder. When I was released to golf, I posted scores and yes, they were a bit higher than before the surgeries, but it all normalizes in the end.
  14. I used to use a line on my ball for a few years, but gave it up several years ago and here's why. 1. My stroke is not a straight back and straight through 2. I was never quite sure that I had the line pointed in the exact spot I needed to hit so that hurt my confidence 3. Since I wasn't confident the line was correctly pointed, I would step back at times and realign it which took too much time I gave up the line and place the ball so there are no markings at all on top. I have become a pretty darn good putter since then.
