With absolutely no commercial connection, when I get into my monthly slump from mishits, I pull out the Medicus hinged club for a session on the range.
I used a putter because almost half of my strokes when I play golf are with a putter, usually in the 30 - 34 range.  My course isn't that long (6400) and I hit my 5i about 190-200.  My problem was that I couldn't control the distance on my pitching wedge very well.  80-110 yard shots consistently were long and off the green.  If I could have had 3 of my shots back, using the sw instead of the pw, I would have saved at least 5 strokes and won the game (lost by 1, net).  I'm...
Had fun yesterday with the Friday men's group - played 3 club competition where you play all 18 holes using only 3 clubs.  Very fun.  I used a 5i, pw, and putter.  Shot a 91 (10 hcp) which wasn't great, with 3 triples because of bad planning.  If I don this again, I'd use a 5i, SW, and putter.   Anyone else enjoy this torture?
Mine is walking up to my ball in a trap, only to find it sitting in someone's footprint because they were too lazy to rake it.
If any of you guys get the club and don't like it, let me know if you would be willing to sell it.

I played yesterday with a couple of younger guys who could hit the ball a mile - just not straight.  I've never seen 2 guys hit so many houses in one round.  Each had to have hit at least 6 houses each.  Played the Pinnacle course at Troon North in Scottsdale.  What a spectacular course...   I've hit one roof one time - my mother-in-law's house!
I've had 3 holes in one in 10 months - something weird.   #1 December 4, 2012 - Hole #15, 167 yard, 6 iron, Hillcrest Golf Club, Durango   #2 March 12, 2013 - Hole #5, 152 yard, 9 iron, Dalton Ranch Golf Club, Durango (This one doesn't really count.  They aerated the greens the previous week and had the large cups, although this would have gone in with a regular cup, I believe).  Still the same thrill   #3 July 30, 2013 - Hole #2, 147 yard, 9 iron, Dalton Ranch,...
The second day was better than the first.  First day, poor ball striking, ok putting.  Second day, good striking, couldn't putt.  Improved by 10 strokes, finished in the top half but not on top.  Oh well, the guys who shot their handicap both days won their respective flights.   You guys gave me great advice - thanks.  It definitely helped me drop the 10 strokes.
You guys nailed it - now, if I can just pull it off.  A lot of it will depend on with whom I am paired, although it shouldn't.  I have to block them out and focus on me.   Off to the range for warm up.   Thanks for the advice.
