You have the option to have it shipped home or to GS. I choose GS as I figured I could hit on their monitors and compare against other clubs, not that I couldn't do that anyway, but a good excuse to do so.Plus, I try to limit the number of 6X6X35" boxes that get delivered to the house......
This is something TM does every so often with a new iron, they will give away a certain number of 6-irons.You just register and wait to see if you get it, no real contest per se.Brad
Anyone else get one?
Just for perspective, if you practiced 40 hours a week (equal to full time employment) you would have 2080 a year, so 10,000 hours = 4.8 years and 15,000 = 7.2 years. Mind you this rule of thumb is on "deliberate practice" which means a round of golf would not count. That would be a large amount of practice for a school age child.In my opinion, aside from work ethic, you have to have raw talent to be a pro, in any sport.

I second May 4th, my son will be 6 months old so I should be able to get a hall pass.Black Gold is a great course, and fairly long at 6,700 / 133 from the tips.http://www.greenskeeper.org/southern_california/orange_county/Black_Gold_Golf_Club/scorecard.cfmBrad
Since I don't play tourney's very much, with the stableford system, who generally has the best chance of winning, high or low handicap players?From what I read in the postings, I belive all 4 group 1 members estimated their HC. From an analytical perspective it looks like the HCs were estimated on the low side given the score results, but don't know for sure.I would guess the course slope would impact this too, but I think that gets figured out when calculating the couse...
I can only report on how the rounds felt in comparision to each other and today's round felt much better. There was far less scrambling and the 3 bad holes can be contibuted to 2 course management errors and one pitch off the hosel. I not sure I'm out to make the guys happy, I would expect the putts to increase when going for the center of the green vs. not and chipping it close.I do appreciate the comments.Brad
Fair enough, I'll keep this in mind next time.I do think the results show a positive improvement as I went from 1 par to 4 and from 0% GIR to 33% GIR. All the GIR's were on Par 4 or 5s.But I get what you are saying.Brad
Not sure if you are looking for unofficial feedback, but I will provide it anway. Shot two 9-hole rounds this week, one prior to reading this thread and one after. The second round I decided to go for the middle of the green on any shot outside of 80 yards (I'm a 16HC). Here are the results: Round 1 Score: 47 (1 par) FIR: 43% GIR: 0% Scramble: 11.1% Putt Avg: 1.8 3 Putts: 0 Par 3 Avg: 5 Par 4 Avg: 4.8 Par 5 Avg: 6.5 Round 2 Score: 47 (4 pars) FIR: 57% GIR:...
