    My Old School Bag

    Great bag! I had a tour issue '07 Burner that I really enjoyed and the 07 Burner fairways are epic. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Have You Ever Gone Backwards in Club Models?

    I have gone back to the SLDR and my old Adams hybrids. I try something new and have a great honeymoon but then real life sets in and I miss the good old days :) And I won't even consider a new three metal - I have a tour issue RBZ that is so good - I just KNOW I'm going to hit it well, you know? It's funny this thread ongoing since '17 - it really is a great topic [emoji1787] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What a great, gut check of a win! Congratulations Rickie! I really appreciate his attitude and the way he plays the game. Good for him. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Do you shape your shots?

    I have typically played a small draw - I hit that for years and years. I could hit a fade with driver or long irons when I had to but that was usually something pretty dramatic vs a baby fade. That said, after two back surgeries, including a fusion, I have been hitting a baby cut with almost everything - even shorter irons. It's weird but I like it - I can still hit a draw but it's not my go to. If I want to hit a draw off the tee, I usually hit my three wood but I can do it with the driver if need be the three is just easier to draw. Because I live in Oklahoma, I can definitely flight the ball - if you can't flight the ball here - you won't play much golf :) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    100 push ups a day

    I'll join you! I'm not sure I can do 100 a day at first but I know I can get there! I had my second back surgery 3 years ago (a microdiscectomy followed by a fusion) and I'm just now starting to get my life back to normal but I'm excited to get my core strength up specifically, as well as, muscle tone in general.

    Positive or negative

    When I was a younger man I was pretty hard on myself and negative. As I have grown older and matured I have looked at a bad shot as an opportunity to have an incredible up and down :) I have had two back surgeries, including a fusion, and that has had an incredible impact on my outlook on life. I could have been killed but I wasn't - I could have been in a position to never play golf again but that didn't happen. This year I was able to play once a week and even a few times a week during vacation. I'm able to speak and pastor a small church AND play golf?? Pretty awesome :) Amazingly, my improved attitude has an overwhelming positive impact on my scores as well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Set it an go or tinker?

    I mostly set it and forget it but I will occasionally tinker with weights (lighter/heavier and spin) and loft. I do mostly for feel or a flight I'm looking to see but even then I typically go back to where it was. It's fun to have options but it has surely caused a lack of confidence at times ("maybe another setting would be better..."). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Hello from Myrtle Beach

    Welcome from Moore, OK. I can relate to the idea of playing from the right tees - when I do, I can do ok too. Put me on the wrong ones - not quite as well or fun! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Trouble with the hybrid

    Depending on your swing speed you may actually hit a five wood farther due to the shorter shaft making a better strike more likely. I have a 3 wood I've had for the last five years and the one prior a bit longer. That's the club in the bag that is hardest to find for many and when you do - it stays put!

    25 More Yards or 3 Less Strokes Per Round

    I would take the 25 yards with my same accuracy. I don't have the length I once did and 25 yards would certainly translate to lower scores for me! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. There has already been good advice thus far but I would just say to invest significantly in your wife for the next 90 days. Communicate your love and appreciation for her in word and deed. Take time to find out how she is feeling or perhaps a better way to say it is find out how you playing golf makes her feel. Talk to her and listen. Find out what the actual problem and solve it and life will be better. I've been married 27 years and through the years golf has at times been a significant source of tension but no more. I will tell you that you are in a season of life that is difficult, wonderful and fleeting - this too shall pass and you will miss it :) If I could go back, I wouldn't play more golf. Hope things work out - enjoy your Thanksgiving! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
