I tend to fill in the last holes based on a average on how I am playing that day and what I think I would get. Works for me.
I enjoy the LPGA, but agree about 2 items here: 1) Women's sports are not as exciting as men's sports which can limit their popularity 2) Golf is driven by personality + performance. Without both, you can't capture the attention of the viewing public. What I think would rope folks into the LPGA is to bring in some nationalism. I'd love to see Korea vs U.S. in Solheim Cup-style team events. Nothing like a little flag-waving to inspire rabid fans. Position the...
1) Good pace of play 2) Elevations, water challenging 3) Big Greens
Add me in, Dumfriesshire, South west Scotland. Oh... and hello to all! New member here.
I have just purchased the MX-950, and they are great. I have tried the MX-200, too. Both MX-950 and MX-200 are great clubs, but I picked MX-950 cause it's cheaper. $349. They both very forgiven and solid feel and they are very very easy to hit.
I bought a new set of Top Flite XL a couple of years ago; it has a driver, a #3 abd #5 fairway woods, 4 and 5 hybrid, 6-9 PW, SW irons and a mallet putter. I am extremely happy with the set and have consistently improved my game. I just broke 100 at the beginning of this season, and am still making great improvement with the set. I play around 10-12 rounds a year, and go the range once every 2 weeks. Wish I have more time, but I take what I can. The set is forgiving...
Not another word about the MS Gulf Coast! We'll keep that between us.
Dub, where did you get fit? I'm also in Augusta. Years ago was fit to a green dot. Did not buy the clubs at that point. Recently took another look at Ping and was fitted to a blue dot (same as online/chart fit). Effectively, the green dot was covering up my poor swing (essentially a weak grip). The pro that fitted me (just a quick fit of 30 minutes just to see) said it was better to get a couple lessons to straighten out my grip and swing path, then get fitted to a set...
I've had the pleasure and priveledge of playing Pebble 4 times, with the first being in 1983 ($300 green fee) and then once a year for the past three years. The second time I played, they had ariated the greens the day before with BIG plugs. That really sucked! But scoring ISN'T the priority out here. The beauty of the environment rules! Every golfer should be allowed to play PB at least once in his/her lifetime, even though the green fees are outrageous (although...
well I just fitted last weekend by a Ping rep and I was fitted for a white dot, which reallly kinda scares me because at static address I am a orange dot which is 3 degrees flat and the whites are 3 degrees upright. I stand 6' tall but I know i lean over way too much @ address so I am thinking I am going to hold off on ordering a new set until I get a couple of lessons....I just dont want to throw away good money if my swing is going to change after the lessons....signed...
