  2. Exactly. Skull and chunk. Blade, and I've tried the half/quarter swings with little difference. I really just think I need to spend some time with it to get used to it. But thanks for the suggestion!
  3. Lob wedge. It either goes 10 yards or 50. Nothing in between. I still have it in my bag, but never use it. Probably should go and practice with it to understand what I'm doing wrong.
  4. I've got a 2013 Adams Tight Lies 16 degree fairway wood that just works. Consistently 225 yards. Might not be very far, but I can always count on it.
  5. I have tried the golf ball finding glasses (whatever they are called, I can't remember), but they didn't work very well. It didn't help that I wear prescription glasses as well, so I'd have to switch, but my wife has perfect vision and tried these glasses with little luck. This was a few years ago, so maybe they are better now, but I wouldn't waste my time or money on them.
  6. I have been replacing mine every 4-6 years, and while I have some favourite brands, I check out everything that is available when it is time for new ones. I have changed brands 5 times over the 35 years I have golfed.
  7. I've had the Jameson and the Writer's Tears, but not the Cider Cask. Can you compare it to any other Tullamore? I prefer the Redbreast 12 cask strength to the regular 12, but I also really enjoy the 21. Very smooth whiskey. Green Spot is another good one; better than Yellow Spot for me. How about any Indian whisky? I've got a fantastic Amrut right now - a 9 year old, single cask bottled at 60%. Wonderful stuff.
  8. I haven't played it yet, but a pro I follow on youtube has played a random club game a couple of times that I have seen. He uses https://kanewj.com/club/ to make it really simple. If you don't have the club that is selected, hit the button again. It makes you try all sorts of different shots.
  9. In Alberta, golf courses can open tomorrow, but we don't necessarily know what the courses will have in place in terms of protocols yet. Should be out today from my course - at least I hope so!
  10. I trash talk my regular playing partners, but I expect (and definitely receive) it in return. It's all in good fun. We're not good enough to go that hard on each other. With people I don't know, there is no trash talk, no gamesmanship. Just play.
  11. It's not just you. Everyone is different, so you will find the whole range of talkativeness (is that a word?) in your playing partners. I generally golf with people I know well, so our talking styles are well known to the others. The key thing I find is that you need to pay a little attention to how you interact with new people and how your talking affects the others - and vice versa. Don't be afraid to tell someone that you don't normally talk much as you prefer the quiet to focus on your game. It might help a bit.
  12. It always seems that I play to the level of my partners. If they are better than me, I usually end up having better than average rounds. If they are worse than me, I usually play worse.
  13. Like yungkory, I use MGS for recommendations, but need to test equipment myself.
  14. May through October for the most part, and I play at least once a week. Three times if I can.
  15. Once, yes, but it just rolled into me. It was the third time the group behind us hit when we were within distance on a packed course. No one was going to play through anyone, and the guys behind kept hitting into us without warning. The first time, we turned around and yelled at them. The second, we added a stomping into the fairway of the ball, and the third (the one that hit me) I hit the ball into a pond.
