Re: How far does your driver head fly? Does cart path help?

Pics didn't come in. Try again.
Is your brother's swing real violent? (Just curious I guess.)

Re: February Golf

Hit some decent drives on the course today. Figured out irons and generally played okay. Easy Florida county course (116 slope) but with the exception of a couple shots felt like I was playing golf again. Lots of GIRs and fairways, but distance wasn't as long as I would expect. Played an extra club ...

$252? Geez. If I were you, I'd wait until I made the PGA Tour and play it for free! ;)

Re: February Golf

Okay, so I went to the range and MAY have figured it out. At least a temporary fix worked. I stopped slicing anyway, but am not really drawing my driver as I would like. Instead, I am getting a slight pull, but straight, or a very slight fade 3-4 yards right of target. In both cases, my ballspeed fe...

Re: Everyone Remember CeeBee?

He still posts some scores on SG360, and comments from time to time on my scores (though I have finally moved over to the Grint) so his excuse about not having his computer set up (yet) doesn't hold water.

Where the hell are you Chris (other than in Delaware)?

Re: Course Staff and Rangers

Knowing many starters and rangers personally myself, most of whom also play golf themselves, I think some of them feel the public golfer who pays to play is just a nuisance, at least if they are not specifically known by the ranger/starter as one of the "good" guys. If you aren't in the clic, you ar...

Re: 2018-2019 Winter Support Group

I finally got out to play a few holes today in Florida. Alls I can say is, don't take a month off from golf if you expect to play at the level you did before the layoff. Man, I felt like some 20+ handicapper out there. Somehow I kept the score somewhat under control, but my swing was terrible. I can...

Re: Sergio's Greatest Hits

Unlike Sergio, when the breaks go against him, Fowler, showed class under pressure in his win yesterday at the Phoenix WM Open, losing his 5-stroke lead on virtually one hole due to circumstances that would make even some of the coolest heads lose it. And it kills me to say it, but he did it with hi...

C'mon DougE, share some of that FL experience. How many rounds so far? Playing today and then watch football? I wish I had more to offer, but this 90th birthday celebration for my mom and the logistics surrounding it have made playing golf difficult. I have only been to the range an hour before dar...

Re: Just Keep Swimming

So I would expect a driver swap to fix that issue. If you are able to keep it in the fairway consistently without big hooks or slices, a higher launching shaft, not necessarily a higher lofted head, may be all you need to give you what you are looking for. I'd get fit for shafts first if I were you...

Re: When is it TOO Cold?

My buddy has a battery powered heated vest. It's rechargeable. He plugs it in overnight and he's ready for more warmth the next day. Evidently it is quite effective. He can crank it all the way up and stay warm well into the single digit temps. For golf, at 40*, he says he has to keep it on the low ...

Re: WTF did you buy today?

Bought two 2018-season Footjoy polos today, directly from FJ. On sale. Final day. $49.50 each. Normally, $79.50 each. Such a deal! Sorry, I know I am a Footjoy/Titleist snob loyalist, but FJ really does make quality clothing. The fit is better than my other brands, for sure. Though I only play Title...

They should call their gloves Handjoys.
Hmmm telling my wife I want 2 handjoys for my birthday and that I can get them somewhere else for $20 might not go over so well. At least my couch is comfortable.

After getting everything prepared for my trip today, I snuck out an hour before dark and walked 6 holes. Finally. First holes in nearly three weeks. 40 degrees and cloudy. Muddy, yet frozen just under the mud, about a half inch down. Greens were solid as a rock, but not very fast. Chipped in from ju...

How old are your irons? I just looked my R9s up, and they were released in 2009... 10 years old. How often do you upgrade irons? How often do you upgrade other clubs? Wedges probably the most often, right? Are you loyal? Tempted to go do a fancy fitting, to see what a real fitter thinks I should be...

Re: 2018-2019 Winter Support Group

I think they are just hard packed sandy cart paths that double as "waste areas". I've seen it on a couple courses in Florida. Normally there are loose shells and crap mixed in with the sand, but maybe that was the cheaper ones I played like that. Yes, you do drive your cart in them, but you can't t...

We are going to for reals need a hammer and nail to get a tee in the ground.
I actually did that last year for a few rounds. And not just a hammer. A nail was necessary. Plastic tees can break with the hammer going into frozen ground.
