A cool thing that I saw at the tour event shows what gentlemen these guys are.    There was a teenager with a disability, perhaps autistic, who was upset and suddenly started yelling out while the pros were teeing off. The kid's parents were doing the best they could to quiet him down and get him away so as not to distract he players. They all teed off, and while walking to their ball 2 of them went over to the kid, greeted him, and tried to help calm him down. They...
I went to the PGA tournament at Disney's Magnolia course this past summer. I had played the same course 2 weeks prior, and it was cool to see the pros play the same holes I had just played.   There was a strict limit as to the size of the packs you could bring in, maybe 8 inches in each dimension. No cameras were allowed.    We just wandered around and picked up random groups to follow and had a great time. it's impressive to see those guys play.   HAVE FUN!
FWIW, I have a Pine Meadow lob wedge I'm very happy with.
I have been playing some cold weather golf and find one of the biggest issues is keeping my feet warm. I have been using wool ski socks under leather foot joy golf shoes, and my feet are pretty cold.   Any suggestions?   Appreciate it, thanks.
Over the weekend I played in 41 degree weather with wind gusts to 25. I doubt I'll go much colder than that. It was pretty uncomfortable when the sun got low.
Cold, wind or rain.   I'll play in any one of the three.
Thanks for the replies.  I presently use a Ping G15 driver, so th G15 4 wood will be the first one I look at.   Curious about the new G25 also.
The G15 is my current driver, and I'm quite happy with it. I upgraded from a G10, and think the 15 is a lot better.   I may take a look at the G25, though.
I've been contemplating changing out my 3 and 5 wood for a 4 wood as is the current trend. But, there are some holes the driver is too much off the tee and I use a 3 wood.   How much real life difference in distance can I expect using the 4 instead of the 3? I know the articles say that the 4 is as long or longer, but I think that's calculated from launch monitor data and pro golfers. What can a high handicap recreational golfer expect?   Thanks.
I like the Bridgestone E6 at it's price point also, and it's pretty cheap. Another option in the Nike PD Soft. It's a good ball for the money and can be found for around $16.00 per dozen or less. A great beginner ball.
