  1. Hey all, I bought a new driver this summer because I thought my old one had no more juice. I brought it along to the range today just to see and I was wrong, it still has a lot of life in it. So now I'm wondering if I should sell it or just take them both and see what I'm feeling that day. Has anyone else done this? How is it working out?
  2. I was in Utah this past week and I got to play at my favorite course, Hobble Creek (picture down below). It's never been in bad condition, but I've played more "pristine" courses, I even had one putt go off line because of a dead yellow patch in the green. But it's up a beautiful canyon, nearly every shot you hit you get to watch it up against the mountains, and in the fall it is ridiculously pretty. Like I said, I've played "nicer" courses, but I don't love any other like I do Hobble Creek purely because of the setting. That got me wondering, what makes your favorite course your favorite?
  3. No way! I think they do just enough to keep us coming back.
  4. I think my biggest achievement (or evidence of bad approach shots?) is hitting birdies on back-to-back holes by chipping in. That felt pretty dang good.
  5. Hey all, a while back I accidentally broke the shaft on my sand wedge. I hit a really bad pitch and without looking tossed my club away, not angry, just exasperation. Had I been paying attention, I would have noticed the tree that the shaft bent around. Anyway, the friend I was with had an older Taylormade sand wedge in his bag that he just gave me. Lucky me! And a pretty amazing friend. While it works fine close to the green, if I try to do anything more than a half swing, the lie angle is all off at address. The heel touches the ground and from my perspective the toe looks like it is sticking straight up into the air. I would love to adjust the lie angle, but the golf money I spend is either on clubs or on actually playing (not really both). I'm pretty handy; I do wood work and a bit of metal work, so I feel like if there is a good way to do this I could probably get it done. Does anyone have a more-or-less fool proof way of doing this? Thanks!
  6. Yeah, suddenly I was hitting a few of my clubs further. Just dead.
  7. I was getting ready for my round today and taking out unnecessary weight and found this. Does anyone else have anything funny they’ve found?
  8. Most courses around here are allowing one rider per cart, but the course in my home town is all walking. I haven't almost 14 years, but I'm doing it next Friday! Anything for golf.
  9. I ended up getting a new driver (it's the first time I've had a new one). Since it never felt good to begin with I decided to ditch it.
  10. I totally get it. I actually didn't like it at first. I was once paired with a guy who qualified for the European Tour before he shattered his shoulder. He was incredible, meanwhile I would have to play the round of my life just to break 90. I ended up loving playing with him. He was so good, but very understanding that not everyone is good. He even helped me out after saying, "I noticed something, but I don't want to step on your toes." He was so nice and he was great to talk to. I loved it. I like to think of it as getting to know someone. Everyone I've played with is just happy to golf.
  11. The divot tool is one that I made with an old saw blade and some redheart. I lost my ball marker a few rounds ago; it was one of those stamped penny things but it was one I got when I went to Germany. I'd like to make my own marker now, just not sure what it will be yet.
  12. I was worried about playing alone for some reason and after doing it once I found I enjoyed it. It's nice because it was so quiet. Also, time and setting permitting you can take a bit of extra time to get some more practice and take a few extra shots. That why I enjoy golfing by myself every now and then, I get to practice in a more real situation. That being said, I enjoy playing with others a lot more. I'm fortunate enough to have my brother nearby who also plays, so I'm pretty much playing with him every time, which is super fun. A couple of times we have been paired up with someone else which I really like because you get to meet someone new. I'm not a people person, but I think I am a golf people person.
  13. I LOVE when I stand behind a putt and instantly see the line and nail it. It gives me confidence more than anything else.
