  1. Chris New Bern, NC Callaway XR16 pro 3 117 mph TSi3
  2. Here is a short list of my favorites Erado - Before you tee off your group decides how many holes will be counted. Hole 18 must be counted. During play if you score a big number you may deem that hole to be Omitted, the catch is you must make this announcement before teeing off on the next hole. Vegas golf - this game can be bought at Amazon or if you are froogle you can make your own. "Each player begins the round with no chips. The first player that hits a shot that corresponds to the designation on the chip is given that chip. He/she holds on to that chip until someone else hits the same shot. For Example, if player number 1 goes into the sand he/she will hold that chip until another player goes into the sand. He/she then gives the chip to that player. The same holds true for the positive chips. The last one to get a one putt or a birdie is the one that gets that chip. At the beginning of the round, each chip is given a designated dollar value. At the end of the round those players holding the negative chips will pay to each player the designated amount for each chip he or she is holding. Those holding the positive chips will receive the same amount from each of the other players. " - Vegas Golf Game.
  3. Chris, New Bern North Carolina Carpet or if I really want to test myself, the hardwood floor. In the past they have been suspect at best, uneven breaks, inconstant speeds and they never hold up well. Medium - (10-11)
  4. Chris / New Bern, NC / USA Odyssey O Works 1W Tyne 3 - I have always loved the look of the Tyne, but the Sigma version was too soft. The Heppler being a little more firm really interests me.
  5. Broke 70 please also, how do you get the Donor badge, besides being a donor (which I am)?
  6. My experience is the Ping Color Code chart is a great place to start, but not the end all. You should hit off a lie board and see where you are stinking the sole. I am 6'1 and the Ping Chart says I should be 2° upright, but my hands are low at impact which make me need 2° flat. Go to your fitter and hit real balls off the lie board, you will be very pleased afterwards.
  7. 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!!!
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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!!!
  14. 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!
