  1. Worst case scenario, the needle nose pliers is what I was able to use to unscrew those difficult spikes.
  2. I have a Ping G400 SFT and have used it for many years. A good choice and easily found decent "used" sites.
  3. Yes sir. I generally do. I have been trying more this past year not to let mishits mess my mind up. Same goes for the "thoughts". One thing that has helped me is after getting a hip replacement a year ago Sep 90 % of my rounds are walking. That extra time walking to my ball you'd think would fill my head with all that garbage but enjoying the world around me has help relax me. I think that is the key for me. Better relaxation.
  4. I used to walk tons. Had to stop 4 years ago as my hip and knee just couldn't handle the pain. OTC drugs did very little. My avg drive was 180 and I was OK with that at my age, 68. I had hip replacement surgery last fall. I was able to walk again and as I extended my range was able to start golfing again walking. Totally love it. Oh and my knee pain vanished as well. All because of my hip. Best medical decision I have made since quitting smoking. And my avg drive is now 225. I can actually get weight shifted to my left side now. It gives me time to think about my next shot...and how I screwed up the last one. Oh well. Good with the bad.
  5. Read they are introducing Epic Max Star clubs for us older folks. $700 for a driver? $429 for fairway wood? $349 per iron? Whoa.
  6. Yes, it is a sad fact...but, even though you have a last year's model, (still new), come this spring there won't be any THIS year models available, so are still ahead of the curve. Good luck and try to have fun regardless.
  7. I have a tendency to use lines that the mfgr has or the triple. I believe it has helped me in that I concentrate on hitting the ball to see the end over end result. That concentration is what is helping.
  8. Well, budget is a concern. I'm a feel person. If it feels good I'll use it. I don't really have easy nor inexpensive access to see exactly where my numbers are or should be. I really wish retailers and mfg's would market 2 pack samples so you could play on course and see how you like them. The mfg's are not really going to loose out dollar wise. I would be willing to pay a little more for the opportunity to spend less. If I like a brand I'll by them.
  9. It is just frustrating how these golf ball companies are allowed to force price fixing across their distribution markets. Same cost at Dick's or Carl's or PGS SS, or Rock bottom golf. Just wrong that's all.
  10. I totally like the feel of Chrome Soft and the ERC Soft from Callaway. My 2 cents for under $50.
  11. I have generally seen a better score when my hit fairways and GIR are tracked. It just seems when I have that goal it helps me stay a bit more focused and I seem to have more fun. I shoot in mid MI and trees right off the fairway causes a lot of issues quickly.
  12. Currently using and very happy with Chrome Soft and ERC Soft as a switch off.
  13. Whenever there is a high probability that I'll hit thru the fairway. Primarily on hard doglegs or very narrow fairways.
  14. I am surprised that with all the negative input about CC, that a company rep has not posted stating their concerns etc. Something, even a we are sorry you feel that way. Just find it interesting. How about that Olympic Gold eh?
  15. It is cutting it close as the season is slowly coming to a close. BUT!! Could be good test for playing cooler weather that Michigan will be having until close of our season. Dick: St Charles MI Swing Speed is 87 Chrome Soft Prefer Tour but like most, I'm open to either.
