Tips For New Members!

Hello from the cold in Canada although not getting as much snow as the East Coast of the USA!

I am retired and golf about 5 times a week  :rolleyes: and my handicap fluctuates between 9 - 12 over the summer. Lots of good games, lots of poor games.  At 69 I have lost a lot of distance and trying to get that back no doubt adds to more poor games than anything else.  I have played Ping irons for 30 years Eye 2, ISIK, I10, G10 (hated the look), I15, and I25s.  Late last year I went to AP1s with steelfibre shafts that I will start the season with - loved my last game with them.  Drivers are drivers to me and have tried most with not a lot of discrepancy with the top brands TM, Titleist, Callaway.  I currently have a 913D, V1, and a new GBB 13.5* that I will try this summer.  I have to either chip and put well or pitch well to keep the score down so wedges are important to me. Mainly vokeys - usually 54* and 58* but sometimes throw in a 46* and 50* if the weather is hot and lots of run.  The wedges I own on top of the vokeys include Ping 50*, Mizuno MP 5 54* and 58*, I 3 lobs, etc, etc. I hate getting rid of any!  I would love to try the new Ping wedges - maybe I will love them.

Hello from Duluth MN. I'm a member at Ridgeview CC here in Duluth. Shorter golf season than most of the country so I'm not a fair weather golfer. I split my free time between golf and fly fishing.

 

Looks like I posted this in the wrong spot...oops.

Small world, I go up to play in the Arrowhead Invitational every year!

 

Pretty crazy with all the tree's down around your course last year.  They did an amazing job getting it playable for the tourney, how was it the rest of the season?
