Hi! I'm 65 and have been playing golf since I was 42. In the spring of 2016 I decided to get a really good teacher and I did. Lowered my handicap by 7 shots to an 8. I did it by doing exactly what he told me and practicing. Unfortunately over the winter for 16-17 I became very sick. Did three weeks in hospital lost 30 lbs and could hardly walk up stairs when I got out. 2017 was a lost season as I tried and succeeded in getting my strength back. Back working on my game and back to a 14 handicap. Well thats my story.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.
