Sounds like everyone's headed out to play except me. Good luck with the short game.

 

That means you have a good opportunity to catch Sactown! If he plays a 4 hour round, you need about 250 posts per hour. And.....GO!

I have no desire to catch Sactown, nor the time. I'm out to watch Duke.

You could have fooled me. :P

 

Having no desire to catch Sactown doesn't mean that I don't have a great desire to keep the rest of you clowns out of second. B)

Scared of clowns are you? I am going to find a video of a clown riding an Ostrich and take both you and Jamo out.

No, and I'm not sure I understand why so many people are. I mean, IT was freaky, but generally speaking I think clowns are alright.

Should have just stayed here and posted...

 

As far as the short game, today's round convinced me to buy the lob wedge that goes with my set. I just need the shorter distance full swing and the extra shots around the green.

Cool. I love your willigness to hit your club on the belt sander. Have you done any grinding before or did you just have faith?

 

Hi Matt

 

Yes, i have ground some stuff before. Nothing too extensive. To me, its all about feel when you are grinding, and checking often. I need to post some pics of it actually.

I just have my PW and a SW, and I hit all my short games shots with my PW, pretty much just try to get it on the green and let it roll out. I don't have much of a chance to get the ball to stop near the pin if I'm on the wrong side of the green. I would really like to take a short game lesson this season.

I am going the vintage player route of having lots of shots in the bag by having lots of clubs in the bag.

I look at it simply as by having the 60*, I have one more "known" short shot. I have one fewer situation where I sit there on the course wondering what to hit and how to hit it.

Maybe I need Nic's 8 wedge bag.

hey Sac

 

This has helped me a bunch. Earlier we were talking about the pelz method. What i do is take a rangefinder to the range with me and hit 730, 900 1100 and full swings with each wedge including the PW. Fire up excel and write down these numbers then laminate the paper.

 

You will not believe how much more accurate you will become. The hardest part is the 730 swing, and actually trusting those distances. As far as the clock swing goes, i wouldnt get too hung up on if you are exactly at 0900, what feels like 0900 is good enough as long as its repeatable.

The short game is my favorite part of the game because I can't hit the ball too far yet. I like to play all my shots low to the ground. I putt off the fringe a lot. It's not impressive looking, but it gets the job done at the courses I play at.

Thanks man, I am going to do this for sure. With the GPS there is no reason not to know what wedge to hit from where. I just need the rangefinder for the driving range. maybe I can bug one of the guys in the shop to come out and laser some targets for me...

I agree with this 100%. There's no reason to be walking around with 13 clubs if a 14th will fill a gap or give you a good solid number to reach for.

See now I have changed my mind again and I may get the Adams watson wedges instead.

I am such a ratard with wedges...
