  1. I was in the business for 8 years and I got my start by going through a Professional Golf Management Program and then into the PGA. I would think the best way to go about it is to first look into a PGM program. I am not sure if you desire to go back to school, but there are online programs available. These programs will prepare you for the business and will set you apart from others. Check them out and good luck!!!
  2. Take your current driver with you to the fitting. Hit it along with the new Drivers on the market and compare the numbers. This will give you the answer you are looking for.
  3. What I loved most about Oakmont was that it blended with the natural terrain. It really looks like it had always been there. Plus the history lesson my caddie gave me as we walked the course was fantastic.
  4. I would say my top 3 are... 1) Oakmont CC - Let's face it "Its OAKMONT"!!! I remember walking off the course and saying "If you think you are a Player, you should play here....it will humble you". 2) Tobacco Road, Sanford NC - Stunning views and some of the wildest designed holes out there. 3) Brays Island Plantation, Sheldon SC - This place is what the Low Country of SC is all about.
  5. 4 HDCP New Bern, NC Ping i210 and 8-iron distance is 165 yds I know that they have created a huge buzz with DTC clubs and the reviews for them have been great. I have visited their website many times and would love the opportunity to test these irons. Sub 70 seems to be a company that cherishes the concept of customer service. Any time you can call and talk to the CEO by chance shows that Sub 70 is about the consumer.
  6. Chris / New Bern NC 3 to 4 times a week for about 45 minutes each average about 2 3 putts around The most interesting thing for me is having a the feedback during practice. I have always been intrigued with is my stoke SBST or ARC, so this system would really help understand my path and what I need spec wise in my putter. This will be like having a putter fitting at every practice. The portability of the system is also a huge benefit not only to be able to move it from room to room in the house, but to take it on business trips or vacation.
  7. I have tried everything in the book, except getting professionally fitted. I have a putter (Odyssey O works 1w) that I put good with, but not great. It keeps coming back to the bag after I go out trying something else. I know that it is not the perfect putter for me and I am obsessed with the hunt for the perfect putter. With that being said I truly feel that if I was to bite the bullet and get fitted then the hunt would be over. I love everything in my bag except the putter, so one could say that the reason I haven't gone to get fitted is because just as all golfers I like to experiment with all the shiny new toys out there. LOL!!!
  8. I agree with all of the above statements and would add to be patient. A lot can happen in 18 holes, so don't rush or force anything.....oh and don't forget to breathe!

  10. Chris New Bern NC 5 Ping i210's I would like to test the Icon's
  11. I have always heard it was best to get the ball on the ground as soon as possible. Sure putting through the fringe is dicey at times, but I believe the variables are less when putting than chipping. Also, I see a lot of people using the wrong club when chipping. The 56* up to the 60* are sexy to chip with but are not the best options unless you have no other choice. My dad and his friends will wear us out with 6 and 7 irons around the greens. So awesome to watch and the stress level for them is nothing.
  12. New Bern, NC Sun Mountain C130 Front pockets availability or ease of use, putter compartment that wont knock the head cover off and overall weight. I like to ride and walk (Clicgear 3.0 push cart), so I want it to fit well and not be to heavy to push comfortably.
  13. I have always used it through the app. I know that you can setup games on their website and it will transfer to the app. So give it a try. I think you will like it.
  14. Golf Game Book My buddies and I use it all the time, especially on our annual trip. The app does the following.... * Live Scoring * Multiple Games * Side Bets * Stats * and more. All free or if you want a little more there is a premium version. I have used it for the past 3-4 years and never saw a need for the upgrade.
  15. I play and love the Tour Edge CBX Ironwoods. They don't look as bulk and offset like most of the Driving irons out there. I started with the 3 iron for tee shots only, but after hitting a few shots from the fairway I found that it was a better play than my stock 3 iron. I then went out and bought the 4 iron to replace my stock 4 iron. They both have the Project X HZD Smoke shaft in them and I couldn't be happier with their performance. I have had some of my higher handicap friends try them and they were shocked at how easy they were to hit. They definitely improved my game.
