  1. A walking nine hole round has become necessary these days. With time, cost and exercise constraints - it makes sense - especially in the summer. With age and prosthetic joints, it’s hard for me to walk 18 holes anymore, particularly in Central PA. Nine holes is a great workout, and I play better because I have time to think out my next shot, instead of running up and hitting again - which I call “microwave golf.” If you have a day job, it’s easy to get out in the late afternoon - play nine - and still have evening time at home.
  2. $160 + shipping (your choice). I bought this putter brand new, tried it on my Wellputt mat, then put it in the rack. My Scotty Futura 5M has become a permanent putter in my bag, so…
  3. I have two Group Golfer vouchers for two people, that can be used by 11/1/22.
  4. Vision 54 talks about the think box, where you do ALL the thinking and planning. When you go to the play box, just hit the ball - no more thinking. Having a consistent process, like others have mentioned, helps too. Like the AT&T commercial says “Just hit the ball!”
  5. I’ve given up on the useless postal service for my business and personal shipping. Priority Mail is a joke. I’ve had orders arrive in 5-25 days, that were supposed to be 3-days. Forget any other usps service, you may never see it. I’ve had clubs finally arrive, and two that never got there. I even had a computer with insured priority Mail express “vanish.” Working with them is like a attending developmentally disabled workshop (and those people would be smarter and more motivated). The postmaster is the textbook definition of cronyism… Louis DeJoy (born June 20, 1957) is an American businessman serving as the 75th U.S. postmaster general. He was appointed in May 2020 by the Board of Governors of the United States Postal Service (USPS). Prior to the appointment, he was the founder and CEOof the logistics and freight company New Breed Logistics and was a major Republican Partydonor and fundraiser. DeJoy is the first postmaster in two decades without prior experience in the USPS.[2] Controversially,[3]his companies still hold active service contracts with the USPS.
  6. The Squairz design interest me. With my sports-mangled piggies, I prefer a wider toe box. I can also see where they would improve footing and balance. They are definitely on my future radar to try.
  7. Like many, I don’t skimp too much on shoes and clubs, but look at deals before paying full price. For clothes, I check the clearance rack at PGASS, as well as the online stores. I also check the bay for values. I can’t see/justify paying the $$$ for SRP hot off the press clothes, shoes, etc. I’d rather save it for green fees and course-related things.
  8. With my arthritic hands, I went midsized three years ago. I like GP CP2 midsized grips, but am trying the Wynn DRI-TAC 2.0 midsized grips on my driver, to see how it works/feels.
  9. I’m going to add a 4 and 5 hybrid to my bag this spring, instead of my 4 and 5 irons. I’ve enjoyed my 3H for 2 season and am curious if they would make a difference.
  10. Nothing good. Usually WAY too many swing thoughts that generally screw things up.
  11. I like 14 divider bags. Keeps things organized, let’s me keep track of clubs and general OCD bliss I have a 14-divider C-130 for golf cart use and a 14-divider Four-5 for my push cart.
  12. I’ve used ShotScope and Arccos. They both are great and provide useful info. I like ShotScope’s ability to distance hazards and their pin set function. Arccos added the pin set recently and works on my Apple Watch, so I can track my heart and shots. One bad thing for me with Arccos is that I can’t use my hearing aid while using them. I need to wear my Apple Watch, so wearing two watches was funky. These gizmos give a wealth of information and are worth it. The tags that don’t need batteries are nice (you could replace the batteries in Arccos V1). They aren’t fool proof and have their communication/tracking issues, but worth it. Give them a try!
  13. My wife and I met our instructor at an indoor simulator in March. She liked it and was fitted for new irons during the session. I had a lesson afterward to dial in driver settings and was hook and slice city. The screen was fine, and the facility was top notch, but the strip on the floor that changed from tee to rough to “sandesque” messed with my mind. I was looking forward to going and will definitely go again, but the first try was awkward.
  14. With an arthritic body and slower swing speed, I favor the softer models. The Wilson Duo Soft is my price favorite, but I also like Snell Get Sum and Callaway Magna.
  15. With two prosthetic hips and a bad back, I love my Cliqgear 3.0! Storage, accessories and the availability of repair parts is a super bonus. With adapters, I can use anything from a stand bag to a cart bag. I’m considering an aftermarket motor unit to make it even better!
