  1. I play in 2 different groups, one, the old guys and two, everything from 20 year old to 75 year olds. Group one plays as follows, age 65 or younger play back tees. Age 65 to 75, one tee up. 75 to 80, forward tees modified. 80 plus full "ladies" tees. The group two is strickly handicap and everyone has a legitimate handicap. They play a point system which is adjusted to the tees you choose to play. This is the fairest system. I am the oldest and probably the shortest but the point system allows me to compete with anyone with an honest handicap. Group one, I play the modified forward tees. Group two, I play the back tees. Group one is more fun and I play more irons. Group two is more honest and I play everything in the bag.
  2. I had a driver fitting. During the fitting I gained 15-20 yards over my gamer. I ended up buying the driver which cost about $800.00. The driver did gain me yardage but was not very forgiving, so the added yardage only showed up occaisionally. I went back to finding my own driver a year later and am much happier. The fitters generally use high end equipment that is hard to find on your own, especially high end shafts. In the end, the money I spent did not give me a reasonable return.
  3. I have a 15 way bag and I can always look to see if one slot is open to know that I have the legal amount of clubs. The other open slot is sometimes used for a test club, ball retriver or alignment rods. I'm ok with this bag. The clubs sometimes are a little cramped taking them out but the grips are somewhat protected.
  4. The lead tape is a good and inexpensive way to go. Changing shafts may help but at a considerable cost to expieriment. Go with the lead tape first. I am curriently swinging a D8 driver, up from the stock D1. It has made a huge difference. After determining what swing weight I wanted, I went to ebay and bought heavier club weights and changed out the stock weights. Effective and cheap. I also bought a much lighter shaft that also increased the swing weight.
  5. For the driver get fitted for a shaft. The shaft makes more difference than most will admit. I was looking for a 3 wood and settled in for a Callaway Mavrik Max 13.5 degree. It launches like a 15 degree with more carry.
  6. Brad Kitty Hawk, NC Odyssey Stroke Lab Black Bird of Prey I would like to try the #3. Does it come in center shaft?
  7. Brad, Kitty Hawk, NC Driver. Taylormade M6D 9.0 SS. 90-95 mph. HDCP. 7.5 Driver shaft. Quaranta Sapphire 40R Have not played Modus shafts. Always on the lookout for something just a little bit better.
  8. William Kitty Hawk, NC I would love to test this cart. The cart that I have is over 30 years old. I usually carry a light bag to avoid the comments about my cart.
  9. Brad. Kitty Hawk, NC I have used an outdoor net years ago. Weather took it's toll on it after a rough winter. I did not have a launch monitor to use with the net. The only launch monitor available is at an indoor game facility near by. I would love to have an indoor net to use during the winter.
  10. Brad. Kitty Hawk, NC I have used a net in the back yard years ago. It was not adaptable for indoor use. It broke down due to weather conditions. I did not use the net with a launch monitor. They weren't popular and readily available at the time. The only launch monitors I have used are at an indoor facility nearby. I would love to have something like that at home.

  14. Brad, Kitty Hawk, NC most putting practice is at the course before tee time. I have used putting mats in the past and have had some improvement. I would like to test the medium speed mat.
  15. Brad/Kitty Hawk, NC/USA My current putter is the Odyssey Marksman and optional PXG Bat Attack. I would like to demo the Ping Tomcat 14. From a looks standpoint it resembles a combination of the Odyssey 2 ball SRT and the Taylormade Spyder. There are no Ping dealers within 75 miles of me. The Tomcat looks to fit my straight back stroke and the heavier weight would probably help.
