  1. I'm 71 and golf was becoming less fun hitting from the whites so I had a little talk with myself and thought to put my ego aside and give the forward tees a try. That move changed my entire outlook on the game and my abilities. This forward tee move persuaded my playing partner to move as well but it took him awhile to move forward but we shaved several strokes off our scores and made this great game a whole lotta fun again. I strongly suggest you take the steps forward and once your buddies see your scores go down and how much fun you're having maybe they'll toss their egos aside too. Good luck and enjoy the game again.
  2. I have a sleeve of these I use for practice putting. After proper alignment I'll stroke the putt and watch how the ball rolls for instant feedback on whether it was a pure stroke or a swipe. It works for me.
  3. Congrats to the winner. Hit 'em well.

  4. Throughout this entire year, 2022, I've played more often than normal and decided to do an in depth study for me on different golf balls. Throughout the year I tested the Bridgestone line of balls, the Titleist balls, the Srixon balls, a few Callaway balls, the OnCore line of balls and even the Kirkland balls. Not surprisingly the Titleist ProV1x balls were the hands down winners for total overall performance and surprisingly the OnCore and Kirkland balls were quite nice. All these balls were new and played at least 18 holes or more and practiced with. I think this test for me proved a lot not only about the balls but in my game. Now I'm a ProV1x player. Do this test for yourself if you can and enjoy the results as they may be quite surprising.

     

  5. I've been using playing an older Cleveland Launcher 7-wood for years now and absolutely love it but I just bought a new Tour Edge C721 7-wood and really like this one too. The Cleveland Launcher has a more compact head which I prefer but the idea of this whole thing is I can hit about 200 yards and it's flight is high and lands soft. And, I can maneuver the flight from straight to a little draw to a slight fade. Very useful club and highly recommend you give it a try.

  9. I watched the discussion today about the Callaway balls. The picture of the cut ball revealed and off-centered core but I noticed the the cover thickness appeared to be thinner on the left side versus the right side. Maybe it was an optical illusion but it sure appeared that way.

  12. At the city courses here in Tucson, walkers are allowed any day at any time and it's ridiculous. Get stuck behind people who are out for a stroll and occasionally hit a golf ball don't belong out there. I know I'll infuriate some folks but get your butt in a cart, get to the ball, hit it, and move on. If you want to walk, go elsewhere. There's nothing worse than getting behind a slow walker who thinks they're on the tour and takes all day to shoot 100.
  13. Congrats folks. Hit it well and look forward to your input.
