    cbpicker got a reaction from GolfSpy_APH in How many rounds do you manage using the same ball?   
    If Im playing a competitive round its aways a new ball.  If its a casual round I will play a ball until it has a significant scuff or cut.  I don’t keep track of how long.

    cbpicker got a reaction from GolfSpy_APH in What is the best set of irons made by Taylormade ?   
    Ive been a Taylormade iron guy for a while now.  Not mentioned but I think were one of the best game improvement in their day, were the Burners.  I got fitted for those when I couldn’t break 100 and they took me to the low 80’s.  Then I went to Tour Preferred MC, they were a bit too much for me so I then went with the Tour Preferred CB’s. Great Irons but still had to hit them consistent which was a weak area of my game.  Wrist and elbow injuries kept me from practicing enough to improve my ball striking.  Then came the 790’s and I dropped to single digit hp.  I’ve have the first edition and my iron game has improved so much.  I’m tempted to go with something smaller (player and ego driven) and since other manufacturers have seen the light there are a lot of players distance irons to choose from.  My golf coach has told me to never let anyone take the 790’s out of my bag.

    I can see why some hate Royal Hawaiian but I found it so unique and beautiful I think its a must play at least once.  The course conditions aren’t great and you are going to lose balls that are hit well and some holes are just a crazy layout but you do feel like you're
    in Jurassic Park and that was very fun.  Just leave golf expectations home and go there for fun with a bunch of crappy balls.

    Hi everyone.  I’ve been a member for years but recently retired and have more time to do more than scan the new reviews.
    How long have you been playing golf? What’s your handicap or normal score?  I’ve been playing for a bout 20 years.  I picked it up after breaking my leg and no longer being able to continue my love of wakeboarding on the Willamette river.  My handicap is a 7.1 but I can hit in the 90’s as often as the 70’s.  I should probably emphasize course management more. 
    What do you love about golf?  Its competitive with yourself or others.  It feeds the fire when my body can’t respond to most other sports.  I get to spend time with friends and occasionally family and courses are aways so beautiful everywhere I go.  
    What brings you to MyGolfSpy? Do you already know any other Spies?   I love the tests and reviews of gear and equipment.  I love the specs and analysis of things and can’t get enough of that. 
    Where are you from? What is your home course?  I live in the Portland Oregon area and am a member at The Reserve and Vineyards but also play often at Langdon Farms. 
    What are the best and worst things about golf in your region?  Well it is so beautiful and green here with a moderate climate and the best summers in the world.  It does get a bit soggy in the winter but it is still playable 12 months a year. 
    What do you do for a living?  I was a dentist but recently retired. I would love it if my handicap drops now.
    How’d you pick your user name?  I used to play Taylormade Tour Preferred CB irons and I am a picker seldom leaving a divot.  Luckily I found the 790’s more forgiving and my iron game benefited from the tech.
