I have played Doonbeg several times and stayed at the Hotel there. It is an excellent facility, World Class in every respect. I'm glad Trump is saving it. It would be a terrible shame for it to disappear. I just hope he maintains the local flavor that helps make it so much fun.   Anyone who is fortunate enough to have the opportunity should play there.   (I don't much care for the new name, though).
I hate cord grips. I have always used tour wraps and have been satisfied. Comfortable and god grip.
Perspective-   A guy I used to know is a better than scratch golfer. He had excellent equipment. He decided to get a "super fitting" and new equipment someplace in Florida. I asked him what kind of improvement in his handicap he expected. He said about a 1/2 stroke. I commented that it was a pretty big expense for such a small gain.   He said at his level, 1/2 a stroke is huge.   I would expect at my level, new equipment would perhaps shave a few strokes off my...
I usually wear variable lenses, but had a pair of distance vision only glasses for golf made. The variable makes it tough to watch the ball. I   had my golf glasses treated with the transition coating so I can use the same ones sunny and cloudy days.
Thanks to all for the replies. Good thing it's winter, it'll give me some time to digest it all!
I want to work on improving my chipping. I'm looking to improve my score by reducing 3-putts. This is happening because I'm typically very far from the pin once on the green.   I have taken lessons, read a bunch of stuff on the web, and read a couple of books.  It seems like I've come across 2 main schools of thought. The first is to almost always use the same club, typically a pitching wedge, and practice using that club for different distances. The more you use it, the...
Of course I was just foolin' around. I couldn't resist. 
If you head to the south of Ireland, play Doonbeg.  I played 3 rounds there a couple of years back. It was excellent.   Designed by Greg Norman. Top 100 in the world.   Here is the signature par 3 14th hole. (I'm an awful golfer an it was my only par!). The photo doesn't do it justice.     More info:  http://www.doonbeglodge.com/golf-ireland.html
Thanks to the OP! I really appreciate this thread. I would have never thought to clean my clubs with things like soapy water, brushes, cloths, and the like. I have a question, though. Should I rub the dirt off, or is there a better technique?   Does anyone have a link to a video so I can see how to do this? I'm still a bit uncertain.   Thanks!
I play when it's that cold. For me, it has to be a windless day. The wind really makes things uncomfortable at those temps.   And it's a different kind of golf, for sure...
