  1. My private course has had to go public/private in order to survive. We now have 5 plus hour rounds. There easily could be two cups on a hole. One standard and one 8 inches. All double digit handicappers would have to use the 8 inch hole and single digit the standard hole. This would help cut down on time of a round. If a double digit handicappers ball goes into a standard hole, they could pull it out and place it within six inches of the hole and continue to play out to the bigger cup. If a single digit handicappers ball roles into the larger hole, they do the same. It would cure a lot of course back-up problems. To those that will argue tradition: We are not playing with wood shafts and feather balls. Golf needs this quick to survive or we all will only have fond memories of the game.
  2. The look of the cleveland and the scratch 56 is similar. They are the same color and look the same except for two things. The Scratch wedge has an additional grind on the bottom edge that allows it to sit better when played open and to dig in less and give you less resistance in the sand. The second thing I noticed regarding the appearance is that the neck is longer and thinner which would help it get through the rough easier. I have played the scratch 56 wedge 5 times this fall. It is heavier then my cleveland and I quickly noticed that I gained about 10 yards on a full shot. This helps fill a hole I have in my club range. The other thing I noticed was the way the head of the club drives through the rough. With my cleveland, I had to plan on the hosel catching and twisting. There was far less twist with my scratch wedge in the tall rough. This club also ripped right through the sand.... I think the extra grind on the bottom edge makes a difference here. I leave for Florida in the next week and will play the club down there for the winter. The rough is more like a brillo pad at my course and the fairways are tighter then the are in Wisconsin where I played the club this Summer. I will update this post in a month.
  3. It is ugly but I could get beyond that if it was priced lower. I don't pay that for a driver or a set of irons. They will never break into the fold if they don't think under $200.
  4. I do not know what the advantage is to the company to make us re register every day. They already have our info. It just becomes a chore for us.
  5. Dear USGA The Damn cup is to small. I can't get the ball in it when I putt. How about making the hole 3 inches wider..... Why your at it, I think my ball striking would improve if the golf ball was the size of a softball. Of course if you make the ball bigger, you would have to make the hole 6 inches larger instead of 3. Let me know what you think...... Oppps.. never mind, I just made a thirty footer! (this is a joke)
  6. I do not like the cg 16 wedge. I think in an effort to look like they are coming out with a new improved product, they have had to morph a great wedge into something that I think looks worse then any other wedge on the market. I will stick with my old cleveland for as long as I can. I wish the PGA would have not changed the wedge rules.
  7. I use to buy a new driver every two years. I would buy a new putter every three years. I have not bought any new clubs for two years and will not buy any for this year. That's a shame because I would really like to buy a new cobra driver.
  8. Has anyone ever tried to "regrove" a wedge? I keep thinking I could do it with my dremel tool but I do not know if it is even legal to do it.
  9. Nike Unitized Neo Putter. I like it even if it is a fake. However I would rather have paid a knockoff price.
  10. Thanks to all who have responded. It seems like Adams is popular for women. My wife was one of those who said she thought golf was stupid. Chasing a white ball around and getting bit by mosquitos. Well..... I joined a country club and they only had family memberships. I would try and get her to go to dinner or to a social event and she would not enjoy herself because she didn't know anyone and I was talking to many of the members I had golfed with. One day when she said she did not want to go to a dinner dance we had a long talk. She said she would try golf but would not like it... Well, its several years latter and I am writing this after making my own breakfast because she had a tee time this morning. She fell in love with it. Now, some of you may think that she is just doing this for me and the relationship. Hogwash. She fell in love with it and we can not go anywhere without our clubs. We got a time share in Hilton head and have been to Myrtle Beach and are half way done with the Robert Trent Jones trail. Our vacations are always surrounded by golf. I have created a monster.
  11. My Number is 63 . Sounds like a winner to me.
  12. I think lefty could use a ball retriever and still get it near the hole. Err....only if it is between two trees in pine needles over a river to a blind elevated green.
  13. This would be a flash in the pan idea that would not last long. I had an iphone that was loaded with apps I thought I wanted but after using them one or two times never used them again. I pretty much can tell if I got a ball in the sweet spot or not.
  14. I have been playing bridgestone 330rx but recently switched to the srixon z-star yellow. I feel I picked up about 5 yards or more. I have only played about 5 rounds with them and I did not do any scientific study its just an observation. What I like about the yellow is most of my fellow golfers play white so it is easier to tell which of the three balls in the fairway (or rough) is yours as you wait for the short hitter to hit his. Helps my start thinking about the shot earlier then waiting till we all look for our marks on the ball.
  15. Cobra drivers to me were always lighter with softer shafts. I hope puma keeps this set-up and doesn't try to change it into something else.
