  1. When I checked in at the La Quinta Resort Pro Shop, the lady made a point of telling me 4 times it is a top 100 course in America, and I had read good things about the course. What she did not tell me was the course was over watered, I had mud on my ball on all 8 fairways I hit this day, 4/14/21. The course is Bermuda with Bermuda greens, the greens are either small or have very small target areas on the green making it near impossible to stop a shot on the green or 50 feet away if you were unlucky enough to approach that green from a awkward direction. The greens were also very slow, the slow
  2. I first came to Rams Hill in January of 1993, I remember this date as my father in-law made us walk on some desert trails to see ancient Indian food prep sites, but my wife was still recovering from a cesarean section for our second child. The original Ted Robinson layout was both fun and challenging when playing Titleist only Tour Balata balls that spun enough to hold desert greens. Then 2003 came about and I had switched to the Pro V1; now the course played short, irons into all 4 par 5's, scores in the low 70's. Played again 2006 not knowing what was to happen to the course. Fazio designed

  4. Russell Woodinville WA 9.8 Titleist SM6 54 - 60 Lack of glare in the few times it occurs, increased friction coefficient from chromed wedges, most wedges in the past were sand blasted at the score lines.
  5. Currently have 5 90's Titleist Staff bags in garage holding old golf clubs, bought them as storage to keep my clubs organized. Leather, too big to use as a everyday bag, even on a cart. Grips rub on each other in a bag, you shake the bag lightly with each pull or replace, no hang up issues then.
  6. Russell S Redmond, WA Old school, pacing off from yardage markers on the course since 72'; scorecard if they have info. I appreciate the engineering that goes into club heads, golf balls, shafts. I tried to come up with a formula of shaft length and loft to get specific distances for each club, before the engineers came up with logarithms. I also tried my hand at golf club design. These were in the mid 70's; equipment still had a huge dispersion back then, you needed to learn what the potential of each new ball put into play. Now I get my woods/hybrids from the top club manufact
