Mediocre round. I couldn’t hit my short irons at all today. My driver and putter were both decent. Way too many bunker shots.Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

It was in the mid 80s today and it will be all weekend.I played Brea Creek 9 after work today and I’ll probably be back there Sunday morning.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I played OKAY today. Nothing to brag about. Played 9 after work, no warmup. I did hit some decent shots, but could have played better. My putter is still solid, so I feel good about that.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

Where else? Brea Creek 9. Definitely Sunday, and possibly after work today. Sorry to rub it in but the weather is going to be in the mid 80s and sunny.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

My Dad joined the Navy as soon as he was 18, in 1943 .. and found himself waaaay out in the Pacific .. quite a change for a Bronx boy! He was just a ship's mate / mechanic but did spend some time on a carrier - one funny story i remember is they got called away from working on something on deck to go fix the Admiral's freezer before his ice cream melted..!

We actually got rain on Saturday! A rare occurrence here and totally unexpected. Sunday was muddy and overcast in the morning. Today it’s windy but expected to be in the low 80s. Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

I was on the webiste of (our big box store up here in Canada ) Golftown and looking at the Titleist TS driver. Are you sitting down for this --- $660 CAD. Are you friggin kidding me??? is there going to be a point where we as consumers say " Enough is Enough". These prices arre getting out of hand.

I shot 35/40 - 75 on a par 59 executive course. My personal best. Birdied hole #1 and the rest of the day was almost as good. Many solid putts and tee shots. The new swing is finally coming around.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I am playing an entirely different game than most folks here. There’s no way I am spending anywhere near the coin that the major OEMs are charging. My no name clubs were bought brand new and I got a static fitting at no additional charge. Good enough for me. Maybe in the future I’ll buy a 2 or 3 year old name brand driver on closeout, but that’s about it.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I'm a high handicapper as well. I use my long irons and hybrids interchangeably depending on the situation or the day. For instance if the ball in in the first cut or sitting high in the rough - I'll always take out my hybrid. With my 26 I generally get about 155, with the 22 about 165-170. What's interesting is that some days I hit my long irons better than the hybrids and vice versa. Next year's project is working on hybrid consistency Sent from my iPad using MyGolfSpy

I still have yet to own/play a hybrid. I've hit a few now and then, but they don't seem to offer me much - at least from what I observe at the range. I look at these much like "switch rods" in fly fishing. They attempt to get the best of both ends of the performance/application scale, but IMO, seem only to find something not far from the middle. I do play a couple of guys who really like them, but they are pretty high handicap players who really struggle with long irons.
Thus far it’s been a bit boring to me. I’ll be more interested once they start building and testing prototypes.Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I just received a 7 wood yesterday, and if it works out the 3h is getting benched again. Stubbornly I want to keep working with the hybrid until I figure it out. But solidifying that spot in the bag takes priority.
I am still having trouble with my 3 hybrid, even though I finally started hitting well with it on the range. So I picked up a brand new closeout Srixon Z355 7 wood to see if that is easier to hit off the deck.

I played okay today on the local exec course - 3,120 yds.The putter was on fire! I also hit the driver okay on the few holes it was needed. The one hole that I hit the 3 wood off the tee didn’t go so well. But I was able to finally hit my 4 hybrid off the tee.The 3 hybrid is still a work in progress. At the range I nail it now, which wasn’t true a month ago. But hitting from dead center of the fairway today on a perfect lie I managed to shank it right into the rough - twice. So back in the bag for a while.I hit several good approach shots with various irons, so that is encouraging. And I got out of trouble fairly well today too. Only 2 blowup holes in 18 is an improvement.Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

I was done “thinking about” any more new clubs for the rest of the year. Then RBG decided to offer a brand new Srixon Z355 7 wood for only $69.00. It’ll be here Wednesday.Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy
Having just gotten back into the game I was not about to drop $500 on ONE club. And since I prefer not to go used I went the clone route.
I don’t need the latest and greatest.

I see golf and skiing as similar "sports" .... not to say both are 'rich' sports but you typically find more people in higher income brackets than lower ones doing both. There are a few requirements to play. 1. you need clubs, a bag and golf balls and some tees. (the rest is supplementary - rangefinder/gps/glove/ballmarker/training aids..etc.) 2. you need a tee time 3. you need a golf/collared shirt Those are the bare minimum. that's it. Pull cart, golf cart, golf shoes, hat, all of that other crap is extra; sure it makes the game easier/more enjoyable but they aren't required. You can find a set of clubs at garage sales/ebay/craigslist/goodwill for cheap. I mean less than 100 bucks; hell, my bro-in-law found a complete set in a dumpster that he played with...including the bag. You can get a golf shirt online for 10 or 15 bucks. You can get a tee time for 18 holes, walking on golfnow for 35 or less. You can play in a pair of old tennis shoes. You can wear ratty cargo shorts with tube socks. It's relatively cheap to get started playing golf....the problem is you start falling in love with the game and then it gets expensive.... [emoji16]

More I’m delving into golf. The more I sense this is a Richer man’s game. The lessons Equipment membership yearly is really tallying up. And I rarely read on about public bare bones golfers . All about the biggest and best . On average I’ve been spending little over a grand a month on golf this season . No one can convince me that anyone making under 40$ thousand a year can make golf a hobby. One needs almost a six figure income to take golf seriously

I want to continue to improve my hybrid shots, and learn how to hit my 3 wood off the deck.Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
