So I spent a good 45 minutes or so yesterday on a driving hole of our course, just hitting driver to get a feel for my new G30. But I came away with a question. On several what I feel were well struck shots, the tee flipped and landed 5 to 10 yards BEHIND me and by behind i mean directly behind my aim line so say if the tee was the middle of clock face it landed at 6 O'clock. Then on several again well struck shots, it landed as much as 12 yards in FRONT of me or 12 O'clock. There were a couple that landed out to the side (say 2 o'clock) So does anyone know what makes it land at 6 vs 12 O'clock? Is one over the other an indication of a better swing or angle of attack. I pretty much put the tee in the same length each time, with just about half the ball above the club-face at address.
I "stole" this from The Golf Vacation Insider email today and wanted to share it with you...... I have a confession to make: I steal ball markers, tees, and divot tools from the golf courses I play. And Iâ€™m guessing you have done this at least once, too. Iâ€™m going to tell you my reason, and then Iâ€™d love to hear yours. Of course, â€œstealâ€ probably isnâ€™t the right word, because Iâ€™m talking about the stuff golf courses and resorts offer on the pro shop counter or outside the starterâ€™s shack. Again, pencils, tees, ball makers, divot toolsâ€¦the kind of stuff they WANT you to take. I only take one or twoâ€¦but I always take them IF they include the courseâ€™s name or logo. No, Iâ€™m a collector. Not of â€œstuff,â€ anyway. But of happy golf trip memories; and these freebies are great at triggering them long after you return home. Want to get a nice dose of happiness when you least expect it? Just throw these things in your golf bag and forget about them. The next time youâ€™re fishing around for a ball marker or divot tool, youâ€™ll randomly pull out one of these mementosâ€¦and smile. You can do the same when you stay at â€œspecialâ€ resorts or hotels. For example, take home your little bottles of shampoo and mini soaps and youâ€™ll be reminded of your stay when youâ€™re in your own shower. Or you could take your roomâ€™s keycard and use it as a bookmark (people still read physical books, right?). Or sign up for the email newsletter; whether you read it or not, youâ€™ll be reminded of your stay each time it arrives in you inbox. If you fly, donâ€™t take the baggage stickers off your luggage when you get home; instead leave them on. The next time you pull out those bags, youâ€™ll be reminded of your last destination. I know all this sounds corny, but these â€œhappiness triggersâ€ really do work in my experience. Do you do anything like this to trigger fond memories of your golf trips long after theyâ€™re over? Last week while vacationing at Hilton Head Island, I took the scoring pencil from Port Royal and Shipyard courses. They had their names embossed and had erasers.....love erasers on golf pencils....
