  1. That’d be the one person I’d never take lessons from. Just inappropriate and rude.
  2. I hit maybe 10 short iron shots on the short range and then some putts and possibly some chips.
  3. Don't care on the shafts but on the grips, prefer logo down or the TV 360 grips with no logo, then not an issue at all. Now the trick is if you have logo down on a driver and change the settings, the logo moves around on many of them, I don't remember the ones that don't move but I know TMs grip orientation changes. Mine is off line and doesn't really bother me a bit. I'm not looking at the grip when I'm swinging a club. so guess my answer ultimately is I don't care.
  4. normally I can go a couple rounds without losing a ball. But on a bad day, it can be a couple lost. Our 2 courses have lots of trouble areas so errant shots can get you into trouble quickly.
  5. Why not take the irons back to Club Champion for another fitting and see if they can beat what you've got? Fitting there isn't that much $$ until you start buying clubs from them.
  6. Honestly, I'd find a new teacher. I wouldn't commit to more than 1 or 2 lessons with the new teacher to be sure you are comfortable with them.
  7. The DDH balls, I remember playing them when I was a kid, not sure if was before or after college, so probably in the 80s for those.
  8. Possibly different lie angles of the putters? Made a difference for me during my putter fitting a couple years ago.
  9. I'm going with some guys in June. We're booked at the Spanish Bay. Think it saved us a decent amount of $$. Overall really expensive trip but a bucket list item for sure. We're playing PB, Spy Glass and Spanish Bay and then the Hay (9 hole that Tiger redesigned couple years ago).
  10. The club I belong to allows private carts but there is a monthly or annual trail fee, your choice, and have to have insurance and the cart has to be approved by the head pro. They don't allow the long stretched ones on the course and have to use conforming tires, stuff like that. Our trail fee isn't all that much less than the price of cart plan so really my personal cart is just a convenience thing for me and my wife. But we really like having it. I forgot to add that if our cart down for repairs or if my wife and I both playing but at different times, we can still use a club owned cart for no extra charge.
  11. I did mine at Club Champion a couple years and it was eye opening. (ok, sorry about the PUN from your eye exam example) Anyways, I learned a lot about my stroke and what type of putter, loft, lie, etc worked best with my stroke. Overall really improved my putting and have been using the same putter since then. So for me, definitely worth the $100 or whatever it cost. Good luck, have fun and enjoy it.
  12. golf sucks but we keep on doing it because we get hooked and can't walk away. Actually some days I feel like it does suck but I know I can do better so I keep on working at it. Really a personal pressure to do the best I can at it.
