Re: WTF did you shoot today?

Speaking of short game. I hit this to 6' when my goal was just to get it on the green. It's hard to see but the ball is settled down and I believe technically in the bunker here. Hard wet sand under the ball. Picture doesn't really do it justice. Hey JFish, saw the pic again today in your post abov...

Re: Putting tempo and putter weight

For me, putting is all feel. I try to take as much technical stuff out of it. I am a feel player in general. Not only driving and iron play, but putting as well. I usually have confidence in my ability to read greens. My first career was in art and design. I see nuances that are obvious to me that m...

Those are not the current wedges. Those are the previous model, SM6. See my post directly above for the link to the SM7s.

Re: WTF did you buy today?

They do. Pics and descriptions of each grind. All the specs are there too.

Scroll down the page.

And I'm not sure what GBogey is talking about, but I don't know of a W grind. At least not in an SM7 or SM6.

Re: WTF did you buy today?

Maybe they are right and a medium bounce wedge is right for me. But my entire life I've played a high bounce 12+ degree wedge. I don't have issues hitting the ball with a wide open club face with 12-14 degrees of bounce. I like having a lot of bounce, to me bounce is like I'm cheating. It lets me h...

Congrats and interesting - my image of Bridgestone clubs is that they are more of a player's irons for much better players than any of us Not sure I agree.

Re: WTF did you buy today?

You will need different grinds, not all the same. It depends on the types of shots you want to hit. And how steep your swing normally is. Also, the typical conditions of the courses you regularly play. I use Vokey SM7s. A 50.08F, a 54.10S and a 58.12D. I use all three wedges for full swing shots as ...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

Bridgestone actually offers some nice irons. I have hit my club pro's who is a Bridgestone rep. I got some great results on the launch monitor. Of course it was inside off a mat last winter and not out on the course, but they did feel nice and gave me similar numbers to my own AP2s (of which I was f...

Re: 2018 summer support group

Yup, I wore long pants and a light rain jacket yesterday. It rained into late Saturday afternoon, then hard all through Saturday night and into Sunday afternoon. The course was looking like the postponed BMW at Aronimink did on TV. Bunkers were full of standing water. Fairways loaded with casual wat...

Re: The Grumble Thread

A fivesome in front of you, no matter how quickly they may be playing, still adds to your frustration on a slow-play day. Instead of waiting to finally play your shot after waiting for four people to have hit theirs in front of you, you have to wait even longer. In my opinion, fivesomes are just WRO...

Oh it impacted them. Even if it wasn't actually your fivesome that was slowing things up, when you are waiting, and behind a fivesome, you are ready to explode! (At least, I am.) NO FIVESOMES Goddammit!

He's a Captain's pick for the Ryder Cup, along with Phil and Bryson DeChambeau (ugh). I can put up with Bryson if he plays the lights-out golf he played the last two weeks.

Re: Just Keep Swimming

I often have to check myself too. When things start going sour, it usually has something to do with over-swinging. It's easy to fix on the range. Not so much when it counts on the course. I find my best swings (and best results) come from nice, easy, rhythmic swings, in tempo, as if no ball is sitti...

Wow, a green hit (well, fringe hit---close enough) in under regulation, yet a 10 and a 12 on two other holes in the same round. Golf gods were really screwing with you!

Re: Just Keep Swimming

Beef, try this. It works for me whenever I start fading the ball more than a touch. I use it mostly with driver swings, but sometimes use a similar method with other longer clubs when I am hitting them off the ground. (A draw is my natural iron ball flight, but some days, things aren't always natura...

I agree. Most Korean women around here are not usually that slow either (though most Korean men are excessively slow, particular on the greens), but this group of women had already lost touch with the rest of the outing. They were at least two holes behind. It could be why they were the last group i...

Re: The Grumble Thread

It's not private. It a top-tier, daily fee public course with membership options, but no option to keep others from paying and playing if they have the cash and, one would hope, the game. Unfortunately the latter isn't always something they have. And etiquette, IMO, is a big part of the game.
