    GolfNut14 got a reaction from Josh Parker in Confession Corner - Admit Your Golf Equipment Biases   
    I am mostly biased toward Titleist. My driver, fairway wood, irons and golf balls are Titleist. My hybrid I went to Tour Edge and love it. I have 2 Sub 70 wedges and love them as well and my golf bag is Sub 70 but I also have a Titleist staff bag. Overall Titleist brand is still my favorite.

    I walk the majority of the time. I have a motorized push cart which is great for walking. The course I live on there are a lot of walking golfers which surprised me a little. Even see the young kids out walking with their push carts.

    I have always been a Titleist fan ever since I bought my first complete set. Pretty much a Titleist loyalist and just love they way they play

    GolfNut14 got a reaction from Bang60 in Who has dealt with either tennis or golfer's elbow?   
    I had a bout of golfers elbow this past summer. I did a lot of research of the causes and remedies to treat it. First time I had ever had such pain like this in my right elbow area.  I rested between rounds by playing and practicing less which did help some. I used Ibuprofen before rounds which helped some. But ended up doing stretches on both arms before a round that specifically stretched the elbow area. This helped tremendously in almost eliminating the pain during a round. I also started incorporating rotator cuff strengthening exercises into my workout routine and that has helped as well. I figured the injury to my elbow  was from all the years of pitching and had finally caught up to me. And maybe it had a little something to do it, but my hopes is that with the winter off and continuation of the stretching and strengthening exercises that I will be good to go come spring. But I will say the stretches before a round or practice helped tremendously.

    GolfNut14 got a reaction from Billy-Bo-Jim-Bob in How often do you replace your irons?   
    Wedges I have replaced probably after 3-5 years based on wear. As far as my iron set I just replaced those about 2 years ago after 16 years of using my previous iron set. Just never found any iron sets to play as well as my old set till a couple years ago. Don't get caught up in what the industry says of how often to replace irons. They are trying to sell equipment. If your irons are damaged or worn then by all means replace them if you wish.

    I played my last set for 20 years before replacing. 30-40 rounds per year and major range time. Honestly, still put them in the bag occasionally and don't see any difference in performance historically or vs. the new set.  There is definitely something comforting about playing the same equipment long term.
    I just replace when I want to see shiny and new!

    GolfNut14 got a reaction from Franc38 in How many rounds do you manage using the same ball?   
    I will usually play a ball till either I lose it, it gets badly scuffed or worn out to the point it looks dirty and less bright than a new ball. It's not like we are getting these balls for free like the pros soI'm more apt to play them till they are lost.

    I would go the EZ-GO electric route myself.  We are looking to move to a golf course community as well and would definitely look at EZ-GO electric first. I will walk mostly but will still get a cart for those hotter days that make walking rough.

    GolfNut14 got a reaction from Kenny B in Chipping from 50 yrds in   
    Anything from a 100 yards in takes practice as it requires finesse and touch to hit good pitch and chip shots. For me I use my 56 degree wedge from 110 yards and in. But I also practice a lot with my wedges to develop that touch. I would say start with a pitching wedge and move down from there and find which wedge you can rely on for the majority of your chips. But it will require some work at the range in order to do that.

    GolfNut14 got a reaction from Ben_Howell34 in Kelly Plantation Destin   
    I played Kelly Plantation for the first time on Monday May 9th, 2022 after going to Destin area the last 16 years. I would not pay more that $100 to play there and that is why we played mis afternoon when the rates were cheaper. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The course was in good condition, but you could tell they had recently sodded the tees. Enjoyed the round playing with my sons and brother in law. Glad I finally played Kelly Plantation , but might pick Regatta Bay over Kelly next time.

    I replaced my Vokey wedges last season and replaced them with Sub70 wedges. Worth taking a look at them if you aren't brand specific. I really like my Sub70 wedges as they provide the spin I need and they were cheaper than the Vokey.

    Most of Indiana never changed time till about 15 years ago. Permanent daylight savings is a better alternative so as not to change our time twice a year. More time in the evenings for families to spend time together outside as well more evening golf to.

    Since you are staying next to Palmetto Dunes that would be a great option. Enjoyed playing there myself. Rose Hill and Old South Golf links are good options as well.  Rose Hill is playable for any type of golfer.

    GolfNut14 got a reaction from tony@CIC in Spikes - yes or no?   
    I currently have three pair of golf shoes that I use. My foot joys have the removable spikes as well as pair that has non removable spikes. I have a pair of skechers that only have the non removable spikes. If it's really wet out I will tend to wear my foot joys with the removable spikes as they do provide more stability from slipping. Otherwise I will wear the other two pair alternating.

    Have stand bag and 2 wedges from Sub70 golf and love them all. You can demo their clubs before buying them which is a great idea. Before spending several hundred dollars on a driver or set of irons you can try them out. Might have to demo a driver next spring myself. I also like that you can customize your shafts and grips. Definitely worth a look into Sub70 golf.

    I have a stand bag and 2 wedges from Sub70 and couldn't be more happy with all of them. The wedges perform just as good as my Vokey wedges did. When I am in the market to replace my irons, driver and/or fairway woods I will definitely be looking at Sub70 equipment as they continue to improve and innovate.

    My first order from Sub70 was a stand bag about a year and half ago. The price was right and it had the features I was looking for in a new stand bag. Definitely cheaper than the other high priced brands. Absolutely love it. About a month ago I was in the market for new wedges to replace my older Vokey wedges. I looked at Vokey again of course but then looked to see what Sub70 offered. They had newer wedges that had been upgraded from their previous offering. I checked out the specs and compared them to the new Vokey wedges as well as price. I decided on the Sub70  52 and 56 degree wedges and couldn't be happier. As they continue to improve their other clubs I will definitely look into those if I am in the market to replace my current clubs. Sub70 definitely worth a look as they are cheaper in price but not quality in my opinion.
