  1. Not enough interest in the field to do so and Im a little irked at DJ for bailing but its his life his choice.
  2. Do you pull the ball at all? Id guess open club face and early release.
  3. Last range session I dedicated most of the session to wedges and basically flight control with my 50, 54, and 60 which are the clubs that this fault comes out on. Playing ball back in stance a bit certainly helped me. I think the ball got a bit forward and play for high ball flight was part of it. Placed ball back a bit and kept follow lower and that worked great. Played 18 last night and hit a few flight controlled 50s and 54s and things were TONS better.
  4. 2 large buckets last night with about 10% of the buckets being driver and 3w and the rest being 8i to 60 wedge and working on flight control. Went well overall.
  5. Find more fairways which should lead to more GIR. Get more putts to the hole Better wedge play Get hdcp back down to 6 or so.
  6. Contemplating a new bag. I have the C130 which is great for wet and cold weather golf as it has tons of space but very bulky. I also have a small carry bag but doesnt fit my push cart great and lacks space especially cold weather and hot weather as I pack plenty of h20. Really need an in between bag.
  7. Fiiiiinnnnaalllyyyy got some grass open at one of the ranges in town. Went through the whole bag and very pleased with session. Driver is tightening up. Struggling with my wedges sliding under ball. Not sure why that happens?
  8. Why does this happen? On an occasion when hitting various wedges, I will flat out slide my wedges under the ball resulting in the ball going maybe 20 yards if Im lucky. Ball too far forward? Open club face? A little flat which is not really likely with my swing? Thoughts or suggestions?
  9. Looking for a Matix Altus Tour stiff hybrid shaft for my Adams Red 2h, or an Adams Red 2h with a stiff shaft.
  10. So much truth in this post. Why I havent installed 5000 putter grips, when I worked in a shop I took advantage of having the customer in the shop while I did putter grips so I could adjust to their eye as needed. Never had a grip returned by using a simple torpedo level on head, eyeballing, and checking square at address using something square. Like my golf swing, I try not to over think it.
  11. Walked 9 in windy conditions to see if I could keep up with the ball striking I had a couple days ago. Hit 6/7 FIR, no 3 putts, and nothing worse than a bogey. Finished +2. Very satisfied especially after tge lousy inconsistent golf Ive played the last 2 to 3 years. I pulled my 5w and added a 2h and put a new shaft in my driver.
  12. Where are you living these days?
  13. I always have extra socks in my bag.
  14. Not much golf thanks to injuries other than range since last August. My last injury was fractured ribs thanks to acting 20 on my quad. A month ago I played a so so 9 holes. A couple weeks ago I shot a 98! Mind wasnt in it and I didnt trust my swing change on the course. Not a clue. Not 1 fairway hit. Topped long irons and skulled wedges. I left feeling very dejected. Last night with the wet weather I knew the course would be empty and I had the intentions of just focusing on new swing, routine, trust my swing, and hitting multiple balls. Went out cold and started on 10 which is a 130 par 3. Hit 9i stick high on fringe so I said lets just play it. Up and down. 11 is # 1 hdcp. Contemplated driver but went 3w as water is 255 out. Smoked driver 10 yards short of water. I was shocked. Punch 8i to green and 2 put par. hmm..whats going on im thinking. 12 is a par . Hit driver and fairway. Hit bad 3w which and left 5i to back of green back stick. par 13. another fairway, green and par 14. I got back on my heels and didnt catch all my driver and leaked it to 1st cut. Long 2nd shot left me short of green and a missed putt. bogey 15. par 16..I got cocky and took an aggressive line with my 5w and took out a house OB right. toed it a bit..ugghh. double 17. par 18. Found some trouble on long par 5. I had 100 out with up and down over water needed for par. Tried to stick my pw to a tight right green but missed about 5 ft right of green but stick high. Bogey. Since it was soggy I could see my alignment was off and I hit it right where I aimed. All in all very pleased and left feeling confident.
  15. And more rain, hail, and possible high winds on the menu today.
  16. Cold, windy rainy, hail, 70s, and snow all within a few days. Crazy April here in the Willamette Valley
  17. I got a cheap cut off saw from Harbor Freight which works great for me for steel and graphite. I also have a upright belt sander I can prep tips on but prefer to do it by hand at least on graphite as I don't do a ton of graphite anyways. This particular belt sander doesn't turn slow enough for ferrules so I do them by hand.
  18. I do them by using a vise with a torpedo level rubber banded on the face to insure square and another to check the grip when Im done although I seldom do that. After install I sit putter in to a square I made and mostly just "eye ball" it at that time.
  19. Since I keep my fingernails short, I use my box cutter to peel back the tape. If Im off my game on a particular day, I will cut the corner Im peeling at a 45 degrees angle with scissors to make the area Im picking at a bit stiffer. You can always start the peel before you put it on the shaft.
  20. The last fews years I've played GP Tour Wraps. Lower end of price point, tacky with a quick swipe of a moist towel, and easy on my hands. A couple months ago I put on some GP Tour Velvets and can't wait to pull them off and just eat the cost. Not that they are bad grips, just not the grip for me. Back to the Tour Wraps.
