  1. Got the gen5 PXG driver when it went down to $299, and a new wedge as well. Also just got fit for and ordered a L.A. B putter, just got a to wait a month for it now
  2. I live on Maui so if you come across any info and have questions let me know. As said above Pukalani is probably the best value coupon the island. Wailea courseware my favorite on the island. Maui Nui is redoing all of their greens right now. I play at the Dunes at Maui Lani, but they aerated yesterday and today, the rates will be discounted if you don’t mind that. Waiehu the municipal course is nice, but it’s difficult to get on. You can only call two days in advance, and the regulars always get their time regardless so it’s usually only open with later tee times. Enjoy your trip.
  3. Thanks for responding. I knew you would know.
  4. Going to resurrect this thread for a handicap question instead of starting a new one. The guy I play with hits multiple shots from the same spot after he hits the ball he’s playing for score and handicap. It wouldn’t be a big deal, and really isn’t, but it is done after nearly every “bad” shot or when he needs to “figure something out “. It will be 2 sometimes 3 shots from the same place, go to the original ball and repeat if the shot or swing was not “good”. To me it doesn’t seem right if you’re going to post for handicap, even if you’re only scoring the original ball. Any insight would be appreciated.
  5. Is there a local fitter in the area? The reps( at least here) are very good with the CS.
  6. I don’t think handicaps are unfair as a whole, but in this scenario it seems that they are. I’ve never played skins with handicap, but it would definitely be advantageous to me. Like the OP I usually have 2-4 holes that are a series of unfortunate events that keep me as a mid handicap, but the rest of the holes are pretty consistent. I could definitely see high handicap golfers getting hot for a few holes and having a big advantage in skin format.
  7. I carry 2 hybrids. A 19* and a 25*. The 25 is like my 5/6 irons, but I hit what feels more comfortable. My 19 on the other hand fills the 190-200 carry gap, but is more volatile on what shot I may get. It’s really about comfort with the shots you can make. Hybrids in theory are supposed to be easier to hit, but may not be the case for everyone.
  8. When PXG first came out I would have never seen myself playing them. Then they had a sale for lefties at the stat of the pandemic, so I ended up getting a driver from them. It led to getting a set of irons as well. Now my wife has a full bag less the putter, and I updated my 19* hybrid with them as well. Besides the fact that there’s choices for different budgets; the customer service has been absolutely top notch. We have a mobile fitter that goes to different courses, he is very accessible and accommodating to whatever you need. That’s the reason why I will continue to use their clubs.
  9. Thank you for your work. Nanny has been a surprise so far this season, but it may just be a case where she got hot for a couple weeks. Sei Young Kim has been off to the most disappointing start to me. Still early in the season so it will be fun to see what happens this summer.
  10. I agree. This is a good option to check into.
  11. No worries. Maybe next time p. I play dunes at maui lani primarily. I could have helped you with the reading of the grain in the greens though.
  12. That’s my favorite course on the island. I’m playing there on Friday. Great pictures and happy you enjoyed it.
  13. It was a major let down. The things I practice the most doesn’t seem to make a difference. It’s very disheartening, and somewhat depressing to not see improvement.
  14. This is basically my approach. I was fitted into a 12* driver that was dilated down to 11.25* , but after a couple lessons and some swing evolution I adjusted it to 13.5* and it’s working great. The adjustment took a lot of the fade away and has actually gained me distance than the lower loft. Well at least for now.
  15. These were my results as well. I did it a second time just to see if entering the same information would yield the same results, and the Wilson was still option one, but Ping G410 lst was the second option. Was actually surprised I didn’t get two completely different options so I guess it could be a starting point for someone in looking for a new driver.
  16. I started reading “The Inner Game of Golf” this week and used some of the techniques to keep the mind clear, and either I had a good day, or they work. Perhaps a bit of both. Got a couple good bounces, but putt pretty poorly. Shot one of my best rounds at my home course so it was a good day.
  17. Personal challenge. Golf is great because it challenges you in so many ways, physically, mentally, and emotionally. I should be able to play for many more years, and I want get good and challenge myself against what this game can throw at you.
  18. Minjee is my choice. A very simple and repeatable swing with effortless power in it. If I couldn’t copy hers it would be @cnosil choice of Jin Young Ko.
  19. I get to play twice a week with one of the days being a 27-36 hole round depending on time. Get to the range 3 days a week,b it only do full swings one day. I spend a majority of the time chipping and putting. My favorite is when the couple is not busy and I can practice around the green on course. There is no way at the practice area to replicate some of the situations you get into when playing.
  20. Ball I hope the Kirkland balls aren’t made by them any more. I know they seem to be a nitche ball, but I seem to be in it and the price is right so win-win for me. I am also curious on which other companies will be affected by this.
  21. The lift clean and place is BS! There’s been ra lot of rain lately, but the course is not that wet.
  22. The c130s is the bag I’ve had my eyes on as well. The other that has caught my eye is the Maxfli honors stand bag. I’m waiting to see them in person to make my decision, but the Maxfli is $70 cheaper so unless there’s a major difference that’s probably what I’m going with. Unfortunately I have to wait 6 months before I get the chance to see them in person to decide. In ypur case I’d go with the c130.
  23. Pretty sure the consensus will be: if it’s a playoff game play, regular bowl no need to risk it. The Fiesta or any other is really just another game regardless of what the tv tells us.
  24. For 21 I broke 80 again for the first time since 19, but let’s face it 20 didn’t make things easy for anything. I was for the most part able to keep my main goal of just not taking myself too seriously on the course, and remember I’m doing it for fun. I did have to refocus on that goal a couple times, but did pretty well with it. For 22 I’m going to try and get to single digit handicap. I’m close now at an 11.5 so it should be an achievable goal. As well as continue last years goal to enjoy myself when I play and not to take myself seriously. I hope to also stabilize my scoring a bit and not be so volatile from round to round.
  25. I do it for chips as well. For putting I calibrate on the practice green by hitting a couple putts the length of my putter(mallet) and pace them off to get an idea of how far that will go then it’s up to me to adjust for the slopes. I’ve found it better than guessing the distance.
