Re: Just Keep Swimming

Try moving the ball an inch or two forward in your stance for a touch more spin and potentially, a better launch angle. Just for shits and giggles and to see what happens. Don't change anything else.

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

Course builders in the 1920s couldn't imagine green speeds that we are seeing today. Newer courses have relatively flat areas where pins are placed. Some older courses don't have areas that are relatively flat. Exactly. I have been saying this (and probably have here on this site at some time or an...

Re: 2018 summer support group

Triple digits with humidity today. Next few months are going to suck. Going to break down soon and visit the simulator. There's a new one in the neighborhood. Beef, buck up and go play. No one else wants to be out there in that kind of heat, including me, but, I expect to have the whole course pret...

I got fit for these clubs about 5-6 years ago. But that swing and my current swing are night and day.

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

GBogey, that's impressive considering the father/son team you played with. That would totally affect my game in a negative way, worrying about the groups behind me and being guilty by association. I understand your point about losing 2-3 strokes by trying to speed things up. I would do the same. Bei...

Re: Dumb club question.

Addendum to my above post: However, STIFF can be quite different between shaft manufacturers, which I am sure you are already aware of. I play stiff shafts in my Dr, 3W and 19* Hybrid. They have Diamana blueboards or Tensei Blues in them. I feel they are perfect fits for me. I play TT AMT Blacks, R ...

Re: Dumb club question.

S is always for Stiff as far as I know. Don't think I have ever seen it otherwise, on any shaft, from any manufacturer. Senior will say either "Senior Flex" or "A."

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

Playing that course on a regular basis would be painful to me. Hitting wedge to a volcano-like green complex and hoping the ball doesn't run down the other side doesn't seem like fun, except for the occasional round when you are on vacation. Come play Worthington Manor on your next vacation. It'll ...

Just discovered this golf course profile on youtube. This is where I play most of the time. :puke Wow, I watched the whole video. The place itself looks nice, but man, that was a lot of New York accents and ugly swings. I knew none of the guys in the video were you, Beef, just by the fact that ther...

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

He's striking the ball well overall. The course got him a few times with the excessive, closely mown areas around the greens and the nearly unplayable rough. Some of his bad shots were only off by a yard or two. Putting killed him. Again. He did not look bad otherwise. Many other very good players d...

Re: 2018 PGA Tour Thread

Loving it so far. Makes me feel better about the rough I had to deal with at WM a few weeks back. It was unplayable, but at least I had fairways that were a lot more findable and greens that were still healing (and somewhat slow) from aeration. Between the wind and rough at Shinnecock today, I would...

Re: Short Putts

I do put the data into SkyGolf as I don't consider the SG handicap as my real one. I do the same as you. It's why my SG360 handicap presently shows 6.4, when my official index is over 7, and probably going up a tenth or two of a stroke on Friday when the updates come out. I count everything for my ...

Re: Short Putts

Here is my question to you. When you are playing a non-competitive, non-tournament round of golf, and your ball comes to rest within four feet of the hole... how do you proceed and how do you justify the behavior? Playing with a regular golf buddy, we do not give 3 or 4 footers to each other, since...

I have 3 pair of Sports in my rotation, though they are not used nearly as much as my DryJoys. The three pairs I have are white w/green trim, w/blue trim and w/silver trim. They are not the most recent model. I think they are from 2015. They are very comfortable. I wear them with shorts sometimes, b...

I didn't buy anything today, but I wanted to come back to the FootJoy conversation from a week or so ago. After some heavy rain a couple weeks back, I was wearing my pair of white w/white gator Footjoy Dryjoys. I got these shoes for Christmas of 2016. They are my favorite pair of about 8 or 9 pairs ...

I used to have a 910H 4 hybrid. Very nice club. Accurate. I think I sold mine on Ebay a few years back for about 50 bucks. Hope you got a good deal.

I don't know how that's helpful, but I would certainly be asking the superintendent for some explanation. Maybe I'm missing something and he can enlighten me.
