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...
When it's really cold (30s or less) I wear and underarmour base layer then a long sleeve golf shirt. Over that I wear my Footjoy merino wool performance seweater. I have a lined pullover I wear over that.   I wear ski socks and a ski base layer over heavy corduroy pants. Also a wool ski cap and a fleece ski "gator" for my neck.   Keeps me warm into the 30s.
