  1. William / Washington State Stock Fujikura 57 on SLDR 98 Need more distance as years gone by. Except for a couple of local brick and mortar golf retail stores, no L/M at home. Not sure if they like me to take the driver and several shafts there to get numbers, only.
  2. I had seen many golfers whom had similar issues as you are experiencing. Overwhelmed by information and not able to digest, which in term killed what they naturally have before the confusion. There is no problem if you understand a few things. One, there is not boxed solution to propel you to instant improvement in golf. No matter if you practice with or without lessons from a professional. Secondly, there is no magic beyond practice with the correct fundamentals. If you're going to a professional for lessons, they will probably first look at your hands on the grip, your posture , alignment and the mechanics of taking the golf club to the top and returning it to the golf ball. Everything in between will be for fine tuning. There is no reason why you could not figure it out by yourself with the right grip, stance, posture and weight shift. But this journey will be long and difficult. Ask yourself whether you like hitting practice balls by the thousands per week ? If not, lessons from a professional will shorten the journey but you'll still need to practice, a lot, to own the golf swing. If you're budget minded, a group lesson at your public golf courses or a private lesson with professional could both benefit you. If the instructor is certified and trained by the PGA, there should not be a major variables between different instructors. If you spring for private lesson, look for someone whom understand that one size of pants will not fit all the users. Once you grooved with the basics, then individually tailored lessons will benefit your game the most. Again, too many information will only confuse a golfer. you can only grsp one or two idea in one session. Master it to make the new idea automatic before getting on with the next one.
  3. In a free market world, if there is not enough support for the hiked green fee, it'll either up for sale or become a public park. Many of our local golf courses are facing the same dilemma of whether to hike the green fees to maintain the service level or keep the green fees at the current economic level for the middle class. Of course, those doing well financially will float above the current issues of inflation and rising cost of living. But there is just too many golf courses for the top 5% of the population ( of which not many are avid golfers ). Is there a problem of over building the golf courses from the mid 80's ? I think so. Growing the game without keeping the economic factors in consideration is bad business planning. If you built it, they will come..........only if the admission fee is reasonably affordable.
  4. 3-PW or 4-GW, they are but a numeral stamped on the sole of the irons. If you check the loft of the irons and the length of the golf clubs, the two sets should be darn close. It really just the point of view, depending on where you stand. If you ask a younger golfer, he will say, oh, those vintage golf clubs have weak loft and shorter. But if you ask a golfer for the last 4-6 decades, he will tell you the modern iron's loft are jacked up and they are way too long. I had stopped worry about looking for the number stamped on the sole of the iron. All I need to know is which club for the 100 yard and which one is the 140 yard club, then I could get the right golf club from the bag.
  5. Yes, it should be fun. Bring lots of questions that's not covered in the curriculum. Also gather contact information for future references when you need to.
  6. Have you thought about a longer ferrule ? This will be the best choice. If the Adapter does not offer longer ferrule, yo can custom make a piece from a fresh ferrule by sliding it over a used ( cut off ) metal shaft when you tip trim, find the right section and cut it with a utility knife. ( like a section of ring from the ferrule ) If that's out of the question, You could always cover the area with polyurethane paint. I would cover the area first before installing it. make sure you cover enough area to stay below the ferrule, let dry before installing it. If you're patient, you can do multi colored covering. Avoid using quick drying paint. When I'm Lazy, just cut a piece of black electrical tape and covers it. with a little epoxy to hold the tape in place.
