Re: 2018 Winter Season Support Group

I carry a very small wallet. When driving, I don't even keep it in a back pocket, but usually somewhere in the console. So doubt that had anything to do with it. I may have been leaning to my right while resting my elbow on the arm rest. I'll be cognizant of that on the return trip. I'm thinking it ...

Re: 2018 LPGA thread

Funny you mention that. I was going to say Lexi isn't all that stacked, but decided otherwise and deleted my comment before posting. After your comment, I feel I wasn't the only one who picked up on the "stacked" part. So I guess I am just one more dirty old man....of many. :facepalm

Re: 2018 Winter Season Support Group

Played nine. Big deal. Something is out of whack physically with my hip/back, but swung the clubs okay in spite of it. Shot a 39 from the blues on a fairly docile course (116 slope). Can't complain. Don't know if I could have played 9 more. Was feeling really fatigued. At least the trip wasn't a tot...

Re: 2018 Winter Season Support Group

Been in Florida for about a week. Played 0 rounds. Hip/back problem erupted while driving down. No idea what happened. After nearly a week of barely being able to move, yesterday I saw some slight progress. So, late afternoon, I took my wife to the local course (a dump) to re-establish her swing a b...

Re: New from Titleist

Been trying to locate some of the new Titleist AVX balls while down here in Florida. Not as easy as the last time I was here in November. Everyone is sold out of the limited supply they all had. I've been calling around looking all over for them. I finally found the last 3 dozen in the area. In High...

Re: New from Titleist

Okay so, not only did Bubba Watson start making some noise this year again, but he wins for the first time in 2 years in his 6th start since giving up on Volvek balls and coming back to the new Titleist Pro V1. He has a short game again. Coincidence? I'm declaring NO. But, hey, that's just me.

Re: New from Titleist

I have not been able to play while here yet and don't know if I will. Something went seriously wrong with my left hip/lower back on the long drive down. I can barely move. Maybe I did something in the two rounds/days I played leading up to my departure, but I didn't notice anything obvious other tha...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

I have since made that set my secondary set and got a new replacement set (JPX 900 Forged) for my primary. Mizzy JPX 900s would be one of my top considerations if I couldn't have my Titleist AP2s or AP3s. I have hit both the JPX 850 Pros and the 900 Pros. Very nice feel. Good distance. Forgiving. W...

There are 4 MP 59 8 irons available on Ebay right now. You can easily find a Project X 5.5 shaft to re-shaft any of them with.

Re: Early Extension

That's the whole point of starting from that position. I push off from the inside of my right foot with much more ease. Though I can't actually swing right now due to a whopping hip/back issue I did not plan on, trying to picture my turn through the ball I see my right knee pointing more towards my ...

Re: Handicap Changes on the way

I am happy about the changes in general, but not sure about the double bogey max. I was already only able to take double bogey in an official posted round. It has been double bogey max if you're below 10 handicap for years. However, it was course handicap that counted, not USGA handicap index. So, a...

Re: Early Extension

Forget about the hips for a moment and try driving the right knee in towards the left. I don't know, just a thought. That is the last thing I do, just before starting back with the club. I preset the right knee inward. My club pro gave me this tip last year during a 2-hr lesson and it made a world ...

51 is balmy. You don't need luck, SJD. (At least not for playing in 51 degree temps. Your game in general might, so, good luck, I guess.)

Re: New from Titleist

I'm just cranky right now. My left hip is killing me (up into my lower back) after driving 18 hours to Florida. Can hardly bend at the waist. 84 degrees and sunny here and golf seems unlikely for at least a few days. 3 words of advise. Don't get old.

I know it works with air. I have done it. But, sometimes I like doing things the way I am most comfortable. I have both build-tape and double-sided and have no problems building with either. Besides, my compressor is noisy. I like the tradition and quietness of doing things the old traditional way. ...

Re: New from Titleist

A) Based on the graphic (Alignment arrow), that ball is 8-9 years old, at least. B) You probably have no idea of the ball's history. Was if it was ever hit with a mower, or did it possibly have a small crack in it to begin with, before you hit it, etc.? Was if it ever frozen in water before, or how ...

No shorts til May for me here at my home course, whatever the temp.
