  1. You have a 5 wood and a HL 3 wood? Only 1.5 degree difference, do you really need that tight of a gap in distances with the long shots? Only clubs in there I see as a little funky. If it works for you, obviously keep on keepin' on, but if you're looking to make a change, maybe throw a 15 degree fairway in there. Might reach a few more par 5's in two!

  2. I would go so far to say that at least two would need to be deep off the tee. Too much pressure on one guy. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  3. I'm lucky enough to live just down the road from the Nike World Headquarters. Have a bunch of friends that work there, so I have access to the employee store where everything is 50% off. I'm spoiled. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  4. It's all a mental thing at that point when dealing with full swings. The only real way to work through it is play more on courses with tight fairways. An easy bandaid is to put the ball back in the stance a smidge and try to feel like you're hitting knock down shots. When it comes to chipping off tight lies, I tend to use lower lofted clubs like a 9 or 8 iron to avoid the leading edge from digging in. One of my favorite plays if there is enough green or fairway to work with is a bump and run with a hybrid or fairway wood. Just use it like a putter with a much hotter face. Sent from my
  5. I love them, feels like you're just wearing a t-shirt. Very comfortable. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  6. I think I'm bi-polar. I shot an 84 on Sunday, and a 74 on Wednesday.

  7. I'm glad I wasn't paying attention much to his score because I think I would have caught a case of the nerves on 17. Tricky little par 3 over water with some swirling late afternoon winds will elevate the heart rate of even the most seasoned veteran.
  8. I was able to get out of the office early yesterday for a late afternoon round with one of my best friends. We played golf in high school together, and he was always the number 1 guy, and I was number 2, but he was much better than I was. He went on to play D1 college golf for a couple of years, I stopped playing all together while I was in school. That being said, I have never been able to beat him, at least straight up. I've come within three or four strokes a few times, but never really a serious threat. Things have been clicking pretty well with my swing, putter has been a little

  11. Which means he's missing greens but chipping it close more often than not. Not so much a measure of good putting as it is a measure of good hands around the green. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
  12. Just picked up an M2 3 Wood with the a Tour AD DI-6 shaft today, excited to push block it into the water on 15 this weekend trying to reach the par 5 in two!
  13. Completely speaking anecdotaly, my best scores come in the rounds I hit the most greens. I can 1-2 putt 16-17 times a round on average, so if I'm on the green in regulation, I'm looking at some decent scores. If I'm off in the trees off the tee, hitting 7-4 irons into greens, or missing wide left or right with short irons/wedges I don't care how well I"m putting, I'm not putting up a good number. Good putting could keep me away from a really nasty number, but definitely not something I'll be happy with at the end of the day.
