Its been pretty hot lately here in southern il, really notice it at the range, after just a few minutes im sweating so much that i cant see what im doing, have trouble gripping the club even with gloves on(which i hate wearing but have to because of moisture). Was off last week, played 18 with a cart one day, it was prob about 95 with heat index about 110, at least the course had some shade and had water available and drank several powerades but was still thirsty about...
Ive never played at night with a glow in the dark ball, have played a few times at a lighted par 3 course, got one close to me at governors run in carlyle il and another over at Yorktown at Belleville il though yet to play at that one. As long as you hit decent shots you're ok, hit it too far offline and you cant see too well but the holes are real short, most right around 100 yards, with the longest being about 150, 8 iron is the longest club I normally use there, maybe...
There's a guy in a wednesday league that will pace off yardages from the pin to the fairway 80 yards out. Just his style, he takes forever over putts. I was in the group with him, it didn't bother me at all, he holds the whole league up, but he has the right to play like that, who cares. Im guessing this guy is probably not that good either, pacing yardages, give me a break, thats what the sticks are out there for, take a quick look and make your best guess. Im...
Try ezlinks.com, its kind of like priceline except for tee times instead of hotel room. Sat a friend and I are playing 18 and cart for $17.20 each at a course where it normally costs $43, granted there are a limited number of times available every day but its free to join with no membership fees and yes you do have to pay up front but you can cancell 24 hours in advance. Even where I live in southern il there are a few courses available. You normally have to look...
Ive recently taken my 3 wood out of the bag and use my 3 hybrid which is a 20 degree. I can hit it basically as far as I could ever hit the 3 wood and can still make decent shots out of the rough and occasionally use it on long par 3's(200 yards+) so its a much more versatile club. I could really only hit the 3 wood off the tee or with a perfect lie in the fairway, end up chunking a lot of shots with it even then. I would add a 3 and 4 hybrid, I think you'll end up...
St Andrews actually looks like someplace i could play if i could keep it out of those bunkers, i doubt i will ever be able to travel over there and play but I dont think i would completely embarass myself like at some pga courses. Pebble Beach and Torrey Pines would be a great west coast trip someday. Augusta National would be nice to visit but it looks way too difficult for me to have any fun, same goes for Bethpage. TPC sawgrass would be interesting as well, love to...
I thought most everyone worked out in some way or another whether to help their game or not. Ive worked out with weights for about 15 years, though the last couple years ive stopped lifting heavy at the gym and have some dumbells i use at home and run for aerobic exercise. I guess i see some benefits on the course, helps keep me stronger and more flexible and not as tired toward the end of the round. Im about 5'11" and just under 200 lbs and work out also to maintain my...
ive worn glasses for 20+ years, never have tried contacts. The one drawback i see to glasses is moisture getting on the lens either from hot and humid condtions or rain and condstantly having to clean them off. As far as seeing the ball otherwise, i dont see any advantage. I would like to get corrective surgery to not have to wear either glasses or contacts but its still too expensive at this point, maybe in a few years.
I play a few courses from the tips even being a high handicapper because they're so short, though i usually play from the 2nd longest tees. Most of the courses have red tees for beginners, white tees for intermediate and blue tees for expert in which i usually play from the whites.
Im single here so i guess dont understand women telling you what to do and so on. After you're married and have kids is not the time to decide to stop letting your wife tell you what to do and when to do it. This sounds very familiar to a friend i have, he has 3 young kids and the only time he ever gets to play is when he goes with me maybe 3-4 times a month, he cant even go alone. Ive known both of them for a long time but it seems she really resents anything he...
