  1. 41-39-80(+8) GIR-10/18 FIR6/14 Putts 18-14-32 All in all a decent day. Nothing preforming great, nothing was preforming terribly. I will take boring though.
  2. Par-4 410 yards. I hit an awful drive, topped/pulled it 200 yards into the hay. Out of the hay I hit 4 iron to 50 yards out... behind a tree. From behind the tree I had to go between 2 limbs of the tree. I hit the shot between the V in the tree to two feet and saved par.
  3. I generally like Dechambeau because I approach life similarly. I am very analytical in my approach to all things. That being said, I think he showed very poor sportsmanship. He let his emotions get the best of him. I hope he regrets what he did. He is always a very emotional player and that manifested itself in a poor way. I think he will grow, learn, and mature from this.
  4. Give em a try. Hogan makes some great clubs. I think trying them all is the best way to make a desicion. Whatever you chose with Hogan will be good.
  5. DJ or the field? I'd take the field specifically Tway or An.
  6. I never thought of that. Can you go out at twilight when the course is clear and do it then? The course that I play has 2 "practice holes" with the driving range that are maintained like the course. I just go over to those and chip and putt.
  7. Hit five chips from different places, then go putt those and repeat. It spaces it out and practices making up and downs.
  8. The weakened grip is why you lost the draw and added the fade.
  9. I agree wholeheartedly with everything you've said here. Thank you for organizing these thoughts in a way that I couldn't. The league is a joke. I hate watching the Patriots win. They will probably cheat their way to another Super Bowl this year. The one other thing I have to add is I don't like watching arrogant people with no respect for the law getting paid millions of dollars. (Yes, I know some football players are good people and have positive impacts in their community.)
  10. Probably, but it would cause a bunch of other problems. I think strengthening your bottom hand grip is the easiest fix.
  11. You take the club away to the inside so you have to be open to fight the hook. Try and get the takeaway a little more neutral so you don't have to open the face so much. If the takeaway gets steeper the face will have to be more closed to get a straight flight. But I am not sure I would advise changing. I am very steep and have a very closed face at the top and my miss is then a dead pull. If you get too closed then a pull will form. Make a very small change if you do. Small changes can do big things.
  12. Toe down so you are open. Not a bad thing if you get it square at impact.
  13. I have four par 5s at my course. 3 are reachable 1 isn't. The three will usually be driver iron unless a pitch out is required. The other one is 525 with a water hazard in front of an elevated green. I will usually take 3 wood off the tee. Lay up to about a 115(52°) by hitting a 8-9 iron at the trees on the left cutting back to the fairway. If I hang it to the left it gets a good kick off some mounding. The trouble is right where you can get blocked out by trees.
  14. Don't feel so bad. I can move the ball 280 and find about 20% of my fairways. The rest of my game needs more work than yours.
  15. Jlukes is right. You will see less spin, more distance, higher launch, and more forgiveness.But that still shouldn't change the ball.
  16. No, I play either PV1x or Snell Red. I have switched iron sets lately. I went from SGI to GI. I can't see myself switching balls any time soon. I wouldn't expect that you would need to change balls unless you went from 1960's blades to modern SGI. Then you might need to make a change.
  17. I couldn't agree more. I think 10 is about where you get the true benifits. Obviously there are execptions. You can be a 5 HC ball striker and a 20 HC putter. I can honestly say that playing a high quality ball off the tee doesn't matter too much. Where it really matters is off the irons and around the green. Bardle- if you want to play a high quality ball, hit a cheap ball off the tee and the swap it for the high quality ball for the irons. You will lose fewer expensive balls and it won't hurt your game.
  18. I don't think it matters whether or not it's a scoring putt. A stroke is a stroke is a stroke. Whether it be for par birdie or double, 1 is 1. I would take missing every birdie putt and making all other putts over making every birdie putt and missing other putts.
  19. In theory the chips should be closer to the pin than a GIR. So in theory the putting was worse because you were closer to the hole to start. If you are the same distance then maybe the chipping needs to be looked at too.

    Random Thread

    I have been hitting the ball really far (for me) lately. But I am only hitting a few fairways. I have noticed that I am carrying it about 290 which gets me over all of the trouble. I don't know if it is good to be long and slightly crooked or shorter and in the trouble zone?
  21. Abosolutly you can keep playing. There was a group of 4 behind me last week that hit it 140 off the tee and then hit 3 shots up to the green. They played in under 3 hours! If you enjoy it keeps playing. And if you are slow, be considerate to others.

    9 vs 18

    I personally like the flower petal design of a course. Where 1 goes out 2 goes across and 3 comes back. I would do six petals and you could play 3,6,9,12,15, or 18 holes. This seems to make the most sense. 6 hole chunks would work too. I think we need to have less OB and time limits. There is one course I play at that the carts beep at you and then the ranger comes out and yells at you and tells you to speed it up. This helps pace of play. You will never have a round over 4 hours on this course.
  23. 46-39-87 (Sigh Where to begin?) Well I hit 1 measly fairway. I had 4 360° lipouts and 5 other lipouts. My GIR are improving though so that's a plus. I hit 9/18. I started with 4!! doubles in a row. Got in my head and made some atrocious swings.
  24. I have cracked many balls and the ripped the net hitting into it. I have cracked Rock Flites to Pro V1s and everything in between. No ball can withstand shot after shot.
