  1. Found one..this posting can be deleted.
  2. Looking for a Scotty Cameron Futura 5W. Right Handed.
  3. I get to the golf course very early on Sunday (I work there). What impresses me most is watching the grounds crew raking, mowing and getting the course ready for the Sunday morning golfers. It is very serene at 0500 (or earlier in the summer) when these guys arrive to work their magic.
  4. I have reduced the length of my g400 to 44". It has resulted in a 5-10 yard reduction in distance, slightly lower ball flight and 1 additional fairway hit per 18 holes over the last 6 months. I keep very detailed statistics on driving and putting. Now I have gone the other direction and replaced the shortened shaft with a 47 1/2 inch shaft. Results are still out, but it appears that distance has increased 12-20 yards and fairways hit have remained the same..so far. The big difference is that I am hitting 9 irons instead of 7 irons..resulting in more greens in regulation and a small increase in birdies. I have been surprised that the number of fairways hit have remained constant..surprised but pleased because it has made a big difference in the number of greens in regulation. Time will tell on this experiment.

  6. Welcome back. Take care of the shoulder and when you are healed up..come on down to Sierra Vista and we will play a round of golf at Pueblo Del Sol..on me.
  7. Man o Man..go buy a lottery ticket quick. That is a great piece of luck
  8. Congratulations testers. I know that you will make us proud.

  10. I could not agree more. I have also played and tested balls over the last couple of years. I finally settled on the chrome soft because I liked the distance-spin performance. That does not mean that it is the longest ball that I have played, but overall (for me) it is the best performing ball when I take into consideration distance, spin, and feel. I think that the MSG Ball Test is a good place to start..but I think that taking the time to try several good quality balls over a season will yield better results.

  12. 1) what is your hdcp? 5.3 2) how often do you play? 3-5 times per week 3) how often do you practice? 3-4 times per week 4) how long is your practice and how many balls do you hit? about an hour ..30 or so golf balls 5) how do you practice.\? Full warm up swinging an orange whip, then 9 iron shots (10), 5 iron shots (5-10) and Driver to finish. Then I spend 15-20 minutes chipping and pitching..low spinning chips and lob pitches. Putting green for 10-15 minutes (half short putts and half lags) and bunkers for 5. If I am working on something specific I add that time to this routine, so practice can take up to an hour and a half
  13. I play with the same two groups most of the time. We are friends, golf buddies and varied in background, age and ability. Over the last 6 months three of the 5 of us have had a hole in one. Same course, different holes, much different weather conditions. The first was by an 18 handicap..good shot, 8 iron sliced into the green, but hit 20 feet short and rolled into the hole. The second was by a guy that doesn't have a handicap and usually shoots around 100. He thinned a hybrid of some kind..rolled it further than it flew..but, into the hole it went. On July 4th the last of the three was a high 9 iron by an 18 handicap. Good shot and two bounces and into the hole it went. The cool part is that I witnessed every one of these hole in ones. The un-cool part is that it wasn't me. BUT, there are only two of us left to get one and I have hope that the next one will be me.
  14. Lived here for 4 years now. Just got home from the course after a morning round that started at 9 AM. High temperature here today will be 92 and humidity around 10%. A bit breezy today, but manageable. Not all of Arizona is like the Phoenix and Tucson areas. Here in Sierra Vista we do not have the number of golf courses that the larger cities do, but our golf is truly year round. Our monsoon will begin in a couple of weeks and our summer days will be glorious and the evenings even better. As for playing in the Phoenix area..I tried it last summer. Great prices, excellent courses..excruciating temperatures during the middle of the day.
