    Help..I need a ruling over here

    I've been on the receiving end of that cactus, call off the search, play on and buy a new club later. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    The Intentional Club Throw Scramble Partner

    That is a pretty strange reaction, I've played with a few people, my brother included, who have flown into a rage after a bad shot and destroyed clubs they were actually using at the time, I guess this is a better option. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    Best rounds when alone

    I'm not sure if I've ever played my best rounds alone, because I end up getting bored and hit multiple balls just to kill time while I'm waiting, but, I will say hitting a great individual shot with no witnesses or someone to high-five is a little depressing.

    Big boys or the little guy

    My bag is almost all Cobra, except for a couple of older Titleist wedges and a Tommy armour putter, Cobra make some good equipment at a little bit lower price than the Big guys, and the prices usually drop quite a bit more on their slightly used or year old models compared to similar clubs from TaylorMade or Callaway.

    I'm moving up a tee or two

    Welcome to the club, I'm 56 years old and realized a few years back that I needed to move up to the white tee box, my local golf course gave me a false sense of how far I actually hit the ball due to firm fairways that let the ball run, but, after playing a course we're carrying the ball a long distance was necessary for a good approach shot, I realized just how short I actually drive the ball. Old age and reality suck! Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    Club Condition and Maintenance

    I try to keep my clubs clean and in good condition, and I use head covers on all of them, but I do have a somewhat older 54-degree vokey wedge that I use as my designated dirt and gravel basher. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    Favorite Golf Snarks?

    Sorry, didn't mean to repeat the same insult. Why is there no delete option? Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    25 More Yards or 3 Less Strokes Per Round

    I'm going to go with the extra 25 yards, I play golf with my brother and usually beat him by at least few strokes, but lately he's been out driving me by about 10 or 15 yards, and that's just not right! Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    Driving Iron or Hybrid?

    Great to hear that it holds its own against other driving irons, since I haven't had a chance to hit any others, I've only compared it against my F6 hybrid and F7 4 iron. Those are some really impressive numbers you're getting. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    What do you use to clean your clubs?

    For the most part, just warm water and a stiff bristle toothbrush, WD-40 is great for removing the occasional sticky sap, just make sure to clean it with soap and water afterwards. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    Driving Iron or Hybrid?

    I would have to agree with you on the specs possibly being wrong, I have a 21-degree dynacraft DI that I assembled for under $30, and to my eye it appears to have a very moderate amount of offset. It's actually a pretty nice hitting club, especially for the price. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    Driving Iron or Hybrid?

    Sounds like a pretty good idea, I definitely need to do something to help push me into making a decision. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    Driving Iron or Hybrid?

    I've been avoiding commenting on this topic, why? Because I've been cheating for months now by carrying 15 clubs in my bag, I dropped the 4 iron years ago in favor of a hybrid, but lately with all the hype about driving irons and GI long irons I decided to buy a low cost driving iron, which worked pretty well, then I decided to buy the matching GI 4 iron for my set, and I hit it about the same as the driving iron, but if I'm really honest, for my age and skill level the hybrid is the best choice, but ego and pride won't allow me to pull the set 4 iron out of the bag, so I've been playing for months with 15 clubs still trying to decide between the long iron or the hybrid, even though I know the hybrid is the right choice for my age and skill level. I still haven't given up on the driving iron either, damn! I'm indecisive. Sent from my Moto G (4) using Tapatalk

    Biggest (not so big) Names in Irons

    Have you considered Cobra irons, even though they are somewhat of a big brand name, they are usually a little less expensive than most other big brands, especially if you're buying last year's models or slightly used clubs. I was able to pickup some barely used F7 irons earlier this year, for $178, shipping included through eBay, and I know Cobra usually has pretty good discounts if you don't want to buy used.
