  1. Jeffrey / New York Miss matched set of a no name jacket and pants A nice sunny day on the first tee changed into big fat drops of rain by the 4th hole. Next thing I know, I’m standing in the middle of the fifth fairway trying to hit a shot through stinging sleet wearing a t-shirt and shorts. Needless to say, I didn’t finish that round.

    Soaring Club Prices too Much For Van Sickle

    I agree 100% that golf is as expensive or inexpensive as we want to make it. My personal set of clubs has cost me a total of $85. It took a couple years and some patients but there are definitely ways to get around the “high club cost”. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    What equipment are you thinking about?

    Recently got my handicap down to 14 from 24 and my current irons (Wilson Di-11) don’t really suit my game anymore. I’ve been thinking about ordering a set of Ben Hogan PTx irons with similar loft numbers to the Wilson in order to maintain most of the distance but gain a lot more feel and workability.

  6. All of these post have given me some insight. As a general notion the hardest part is getting someone to commit to a program. Once they are in it and start to see results it should be relatively easy from there. Continue to tweak and adjust to their personal needs and preferences. But the key is always getting them started.

  7. A little bit of background about myself first. 23 yrs old, BS in Exercise Sports Science w/ Golf Fitness Specialization. We can’t deny that most of not all tour pros do some sort of fitness training these days whether it is geared towards improvement or maintaining strength, stability and speed. Yet It seems amateur golfers are still divided on what the benefits are and if it is worth their time. My big question is, What part is stopping more players from investing more in their fitness to improve their own performance? Is it time, money, education, or desire? Feel free to comment and share your own experiences. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    What was your Shot of the Day?

    Played yesterday for the first time at a new track in the area and it started out really rough. As the round went on things started to come together. On 17, par 3 190yrds into wind I hit a beautiful pure 4 iron with a tiny draw to about 10 feet. It wasn't super close but it was exactly the shot I wanted to hit and it gave me a lot of confidence for the rounds to come. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

    Ball logo/name/line placement

    I use a straight line done in blue sharpie on all of my balls. (Usually on top of the alignment aid that is already present) It’s main purpose is to aid in alignment on the putting green to start it rolling on the correct line. Other then that, I pay no attention. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
