Re: Bawlz

I read recently that temperature has less effect on the ball itself than most people think, but that the combination of clothing we wear to stay warm and the lack of muscle flexibility in colder weather needs to be considered. In other words, if you think you lose 20 yards from 90 degrees to 45 degr...

Re: WTF did you shoot today?

I guess the good news was that I was out and playing today but it was about the soggiest round I've ever had. Total mud fest. My tee time was 8:50 and the rain stopped around 8:40. Was I think the 7th person out today, the rest were at least 5 holes in front of me. Let's just say the pace of play wa...

Re: 2018 Fall Support Group

Have used a cover twice and was surprised how much it helped. Once there was an electric blanket to sit on. Generally I believe that if it is cold enough to require a covered cart one should either be walking (which I find much warmer) or not playing at all. The time with an electric blanket was in ...

Re: 2018 Fall Support Group

I was reminded today of my first impressions of TN golf last Winter / Spring. Even though it was 60's today the course was very soft and the wind was +15 MPH. Even this short 6000 yard par 70 course has lots of teeth when your drives are +30 yards shorted than usual. Hit a bomb on #18 which is my ne...

Re: Random golf thoughts

I love playing different courses but I get so frustrated when I lose strokes from not knowing a course. Had an 84 but easily could have been 4-5 strokes better if I had known the course better - course was in the mountains and had extreme elevation and I had a difficult time estimating what elevatio...

So Saturday I posted my 40th score on Saturday (I've had about 30-35 non posted scores, combo of new courses and solo rounds) and decided that my official stat counting season was ending. Technically TN has year round golf, but I'm used to an off-season to work on game improvement and I know from a ...

Re: Cold Weather and Hands

I have a pair of Footjoy winter golf gloves. I wear a regular golf glove on my left hand and the winter golf on my right - winter glove is much warmer. The good thing about the winter glove is that it fits tight and is much better than a normal glove of feeling like you are gloveless if that makes a...

Exactly! Actually from my online research I thought I was going to fall in love with the Concept X - over $600 - but I tried one in the golf store and really didn't like it. I found a used one in mint condition online, but it wasn't clear that the head cover was included - what's the point of having...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

My wife already pushed back on my desire for a Scotty for Christmas, so my guess is a $750 pair of shoes is out. Unfortunately, I appear to have lost my winter golf vest which is pretty essential to certain types of weather, so now I have a 2nd golf item to request besides the shoes. Still dreaming ...

Doug, My wife is asking what I want for Christmas. I need a new pair of "dry" golf shoes. I normally got the cheap fj countour fit or something like that, but don't see them. I'm likely going to just buy them on Amazon. What are a few different good shoes to keep dry in? (Obviously dryjoys but need...

Had one of those experiences some of you guys live for yesterday. Good bit of rain overnight Saturday (after a torrential down pour last Thursday) and it was supposed to rain throughout the day. Rain stopped mid-morning and I thought, I could go to the gym or burn the same calories with 9 holes or m...

Re: Bunker Play

I think #2 is probably the best option for me. #1 definitely isn't right for me. Anytime I take more than 1/2 a swing out of the bunker uncertainly results, too often getting ball first and then going over the green. BTW, in addition to the 2 very long bunker shots, I also had 3 normal short bunker ...

He does it with a Ping 400 Max driver. I don't know that specific club, but given that it's a Ping 400 it has to be a game improvement club of some sort so all the more impressive that it hits it that far.

Re: Bunker Play

So what would you typically do in this situation? I twice on Saturday had a long bunker shot, 35-40 yards to the hole both of which required a 25-30 yard carry to be safely on the green. In one case there was another bunker in between the one I was in and the green. I think the typical options are: ...

On the fourth hole I pushed the drive into the trees, then ball below my feet I almost whiffed the next with a six-iron. The third shot was still below my feet, and so again I topped it, but this was like, the motherfucker of all tops, just kept rolling and rolling until it's eight feet from the ho...

I must admit that I am excited about the prospect of living somewhere where year round golf is a possibility. My hope is that I can average 2-4 rounds per month from Dec-Feb - should be possible with normal winters. On the other hand, the approach of the end of daylight savings time is depressing an...

So I spent an hour reviewing all of the changes. I'm still not convinced that it changes much in terms of golf easiness. From reviewing the rules I see it as follows: 1. Leaving pin in hole - still not totally convinced that this makes putting easier, but if it does it might save a stroke every coup...
