  1. I would pound the crap out of my driver...190 right down the middle. Then a five hybrid to the green. If I don't hit the drive well I would hit 5 wood. This is identical to the #1 hole at the course I play. All spring we got no roll and it was cool and windy. Usually hit 3 wood for my second...occasionally a 5. When you get over 75...you really have to enjoy the game for what it is.
  2. I have been going to Arizona for 10 years for the Winter. The first six years I would report to the clubhouse and ask to be paired up. Out there all groups are at least 3 minimum. I may have to wait a little while but I always got out and for the most part had great experiences. As a walker...being paired with a riding twosome and another rider is tough if they drive off and you have to chase them on every hole. I have probably played over 100 rounds like this and can think of only one occasion where I wished I had stayed home.
  3. I remember when I was a kid. Many times we had the course to ourselves. We would make up our own holes. Like from 7 tee to nine green and 2 tee to 4 green. We had a great time.
  4. I read the "don't chunk it or blade it" reply above and it's very true. But, when you are chipping (close to the green and wanting more roll than carry), it's better to error a little thin than chunky. When you are pitching (bigger swing, more carry) it's better to be a little chunky than thin.
  5. I like your bag. It's what works for you. Mine is similar...I do carry a 3w and 5w but carry 2 or 3 hybrids including a 6h. Longest iron is a 7. Plus 4 wedges. I am getting up in age (77) and must focus on each end of the bag. Clubs for distance approaches and clubs to get up and down from inside 100 yards.
  6. The last three years I have not had a club in my bag that I can hit 200 yards. I am age 77. The last 10 years I have lost at least 30 yards off the tee. Of course that relates to all the other clubs too. My old 150 club is now my 135 club. But don't feel too sorry for me. I still have a great short game and shoot my age a few times each year.
  7. I have no knowledge on the Glides. The TSW do fine in all conditions...very versatile. If I had room in my bag I would carry one of those high bounce wide soled jobs for the sand we have to put up with though. Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  8. I wouldn't know the letter code for comparison but they have a v type sole. So with a square face the lead edge rides close to the turf but still get help from the bounce. When you open the face more of the bounce is exposed but not as much as with a normal wedge grind. They play like a thinner sole. But not as thin as the tour. I have those also but they were not good out of bunkers at all. Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
  9. I carry the 50, 54 and 58 TSW wedges and love them. I have 3 requirements from my wedges...full and partial fairway shots, pitchs and chips from around the green and bunker shots. The TSW do all well. My course has poor bunkers...so that is my weakest shot. A little more bounce on my 54 would be nice. I also have a 56 and go with it instead of the 54-58 combo if I need something at the other end of the bag. I highly recommend them
  10. I have had a combination near sightedness- astigmatism all my life. Few years ago I was 20/650 in right eye and 20/450 in left. I then developed a catarac and had the most powerful astigmatism lens implant along with cornea 'slits" done. Wow! I used to not be able to recognize my own wife if she got more than 6 feet away. They were able to get me to 20/30 in both eyes. I still wear glasses since I need them to read and I have worn them over 70 years. But I can drive and play golf with out them. Love it!

  11. Are you walking or riding? Makes a big difference. When walking, line up the last spot you saw your ball with a tree or other land mark and walk straight at it. When riding, do the same thing but look at the landmark while riding. If your not driving you have no control. Even if you are, you may have to go to your partners ball first. Sometimes you may have to drive back to where you can regain your line. If riding but not driving, let your partner drive to his ball and you walk to yours. After he hits he can come to you. Best idea....keep the ball in the fairway. Murv Sent from my SM-N975U using MyGolfSpy mobile app
