I am playing my first 9 hole beginner tournament on Saturday and I am nervous. People who compete here do not have a handicap and are beginners. I am nervous of topping the ball or something like that lol! But I guess the others are more or less same level. I manage to hit good shots but sometimes I get some surprises.
Which advice would you give me to enjoy this?
I own the Search N Rescue ball retriever. Its a great retriever albeit expensive. The lever popped off the head of the retriever and I cannot find it. Because it is pressure fit, it did not break off rather just popped off. I tried to find a replacement part and cannot find who to contact or if I can even get a part. I would hate to replace the entire retriever because of one small part. Any ideas or help out there? Otherwise, beware of this retriever.
I need some advise on what shaft to hit in two of my clubs that are new to my bag.
First club is a Callaway GBB Epic HeavenWood set to 19* in a Aldila Rogue MAX 70 S
Second Club is a Cobra King Utility 2-3 Iron set to 18* in a Aldila Rogue 95 MSI 85H Stiff
The Question at hand is should I be hitting an X Flex in the two clubs above?
- Currently i game a XR 16 Pro with a Aldila RIP Beta 70 X. My driver swing speeds are avg 114mph
- My 3W is in a Fujikura Speeder 84 Tour Spec X
I feel like the Heavenwood is a nobrainer to swithc since its a 7W in a 3W shaft. However, the Driving Iron is very new to me and i dont know how this fits in shaft-wise since its right between my irons and woods and is a 7W replacement for windy days or narrow courses. My most frequent miss with UDI is left.
I am about 6 weeks from the State AM qualifier. I have not played competitive golf outside club events since I was 12(now 28). I wanted to get some input form other members who have competed in State or US amateur qualifiers and maybe some advice, tips or things you have learned. I will get to play the course a few times before the qualifier. Happy golf season!
