  1. Just got a rangefinder for Christmas.....still in the learning curve. Somehow, when using GPS, the "front" number on a green was too comforting. The Rangefinder has convinced me to club up.....and makes me pay more attention to my carry yardages. No one is more surprised than me on this. Also.....for practice, the rangefinder blows the GPS away.....GPS useless on range flags or a ball you hit and try to replicate for short game practice.
  2. Sounds to me like your working hard and making the changes needed to play great golf. Are you going to show the fitter the swing you will still have in 6 months? Based on the amount of work your putting in.....maybe not (in a good way) I wouldn't spend the time money until you are sure about all subjects making your "head spin) and when you are excited and can't wait until the fitting. I'm pretty sure I'm in the minority, but just my 2 cents.
  3. Many hit shots in bunkers.....only one declared " worst bunkers on the tour"....
  4. I thought the same thing! Pulled the trigger and, when they arrived, they were even better looking than the pics. I'm an 11-12 hcp....love them. They are very forgiving. I got the 699/699 Pro combo.....pros start at the 8 iron.
  5. Finally bit the bullet and Sub 70 699/699 pro irons. All reports of exceptional service are correct. Bought the irons labeled "new" in the pre-owned section .....Recoil shafts...Lamkin mid grips. Great deal. These irons are even better looing than the pics. So much so, I thought I might have gone a little out of my ability range. I've only been to hit off mats in freezing temps and in the practice bay at PGASS. Love them! They are very forgiving and feel great. Wish I hadn't dragged my feet.....
  6. in the mean time....check into the 7 wood threads.....i tried one and it performed better for me than any hybrid I tried.It has become a trusted club.
  7. Still playing the 1v1 9 hole match play.....
  8. Because they love guys like him to say crazy stuff and talk about it all week and then rub his nose in it. He went hook, line, and sinker!
  9. It's the stuff you say AFTER you win.....or never at all (if you're smart)
  10. Didn't Bryson declare Augusta was a par 67 for his game??????
  11. just my personal opinion...there were a few mudballs....FAR fewer than what were declared mudballs that were just crap shots.....it became an easier excuse than admitting to a bad shot.
  12. Mark Lake Zurich, IL Never had a net before....would love to start with this one
  13. Just ordered a set off the Costco website....
  14. All of the above....compounded by standing at address for an excessively long period of time....tensing up and thinking of every swing thought imaginable. Bad shot....stand over the ball longer.

    7 woods

    Update....the 7 wood performs the way I had hoped hybrids would. I use it FAR more than I thought....even out of (most) rough. Best attribute....forgiveness=> confidence
  16. Recently purchased the Kirkland putter with the weight kit. I don't know if it's just my imagination, but changing the weight was huge! Never thought weight was such a factor...but the right weight helped a great deal.
  17. I was also unlucky for about 15 years.....finally got practice round tickets! Rainy week....no patrons that day.....still hurts.
  18. The game is played within boundaries...... "Why should the pros be penalized for hitting the ball to the same places we hit it that's not OB when the stands are gone" They play on different days....we all have to keep it within defined boundaries.
  19. Maybe I'm missing something....but why aren't there more Out of Bounds stakes/rules? Too many pros seem to drive it in the stands or other unplayable places knowing they will get a favorable drop (some even admit to the reasoning). The "wall" was abused at the LPGA ANA event, truly and obviously affecting the result. Why hit a good shot when you can hit a no brainer to a place where the drop rules will benefit you greatly. Define some boundaries and make players make shots. We deal with O/B....far more than "the best" Been bugging me a while...vent over.

    7 woods

    Just bought a used Tour Edge Golf Exotics EXS 7 wood......this thread has me very hopeful. It may be up for sale soon when I realize it's just my swing (or lack thereof)
  21. I played with a guy who played on a college team....they play a different game.....they blow our courses away. He was a great guy...it was fun to watch. I will NEVER have game like that.
  22. I have found the same.....it's fantastic. Now...let's not tell too many people.
  23. I totally agree.....with one exception. The Masters. Always loved watching one situation and hearing a roar from somewhere and wondering who did what and how good was it. The roar could have been really from anywhere on the course.
  24. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. I should become very obvious when it's time. IMHO
  25. The "course management" lesson.....best in groups ( the course and ideas are the same)....swing stuff...One on one. A lot of lessons I've taken fix some fundamentals, but, More Importantly, clear up some misconceptions I have that may not be addressed without a 1 on 1 lesson.
