  1. Greens looking great opening day.Last hole had 218 left and hit a beautiful baby wedge too 5 feet.Still cold and windy,but a great way too end the day
  2. Had this executive course that was located by an animal bi-products plant.When the wind was just right it would smell like someone crapped in their pants for the entire round.The golfers and staff made the course fun to play.Particularily the shop girl who wore tight jeans and low cut tops all the time
  3. Today. Best approach into a narrow bunkered green. 247 yards out into a slight wind. And hit a nice smooth 6 iron. Using a kirkland
  4. Play golf and not golf swing. I'm going to use any way I can to get the ball in the hole.
  5. Very rarely.If it works than stick with it
  6. Joined a local league that plays early am during the week.Their format is always a scramble.We shot a -9 which put us in a tie for 3rd
  7. Waiting for a review on this.Hopeful like everyone else.But I'm also very skeptical
  8. no. Only high tech gear.Im in the in crowd
  9. you don't need high tech equipment to hit a golf ball.All you need is proper swing fundamentals to advance that ball.
  10. I never use a tee of wood.Basically use compacted mud to look like a tee.Its environmentally friendly as well. I have enough golf tricks as Carter had mistresses
  11. I do everything slow. Almost methodical in a lighter sense. Will walk from locker to first tee in slow motion. Take out club and put tee in ground in slow motion. Than before I strike that sucker I stand their and gloat. I will survey my surroundings like I own the place. Enjoying and Reveling in the moment. After doing this for 45 minutes , I'm more than ready to accept what the day will bring
  12. Always work the ball.My natural shot is a right to left hard draw.But I can also work the Ball easily from left to right .Im a highly skilled and gifted natural golfer with superb coordination.Feel bad for everyone that slices.A slice is really a sign that things are very very bad
  13. Honestly I know scratch and city golf champions who still play older sets like these.Really proves to me that many try and buy a golf game with new equipment.If you have a fundamentally sound golf game than any club will work.Sadly this is looked down on by online forum golf
  14. Put my glove on and off for 4 times in a row.
  15. Let's hear it. Worse lesson ever taken and why?
  16. A random poster at different sites. I really don't get as involved as many do. Maybe because my busy schedule and life. I think golf forums are dying anyway. Instagram and private Facebook groups are really taking over(mainly instructional side of it )
  17. Doesn't even interest me at all
  18. Was messing around one day with a buddy on the course. Each of us dropped a ball by the 250 marker out on a par 5.Told him swing smooth sand don't worry where it goes mantra. We both used 5 iron and felt no pressure. I hit mine 20 yards short and he hit his front edge.Easily my longest 5 iron I can ever recall with no effort applied but a bunt feeling Easily felt like I swung at 10 mphs swing speed This game has a ton to do with mind over matter and letting the club do the work IMHO.
  19. Georgia is the capital for great golf. The weather is perfect /courses are perfect and people are as friendly as you will ever find. Of all the areas ,Georgia golf offers the best of all worlds Unfortunately I find their courses to be so difficult. Narrow drives / heavily bunkered and multi tiered greens seem the norm down there. As a 3 handicap (former scratch ) , I've always struggled to break 80 anytime I head down there. Beautiful but penal describes every track I played there
  20. Spent an hour outside in coldish weather practicing a swing in an open field with a bag full of shag balls.Going real well and better than I expected.Only issue is short irons, for some reason my inside swing plane causes me to push more than usual. Rest of bag is fine with nice draws or straight balls.Darn wedges miss right Thinking about bending wedges upright to compensate for my shallower approach and more inside path. Hoping more upright my offset this miss
  21. Reading all this negativity in handicap and such. Our area local events fixed the handicap issue . All of our events have a 36 hole qualifier to determine your flight . Than usually 36 holes of a selected format . Lowest score wins in the flight your assigned from qualifying. Need to get away from handicap except for ones judging progress in game (good or bad). Sand bagging will always happen.
  22. how do you describe a serious golfer? I play 3 rounds a month and practice twice a week. Beyond that I actually get sick of the game
