I don't use a glove either.  When I used to use Golf Pride Tour Wraps (which when looked at funny became slick as ice) I always wore a glove.  When I switched to full cord grips I found I didn't need them any longer.  Even in the crazy humidity we get here in Southern Ontario in the summer it just wasn't required.  Nice to save that extra expense, the cost of gloves really adds up quick.
I happened to hit this ball again yesterday while it was quite a bit warmer and wow.  The sound it makes when you hit it with a driver or hybrid is awful.  It's what I imagine it would sound like if you put a normal ball in a sock and hit it.  Not a confidence inspiring sound at all.
I tried one today for 10 holes.  I quite liked it for putting, it didn't really feel any different than my usual TP5.  I did find that it had very little feel coming off the irons and hybrids.  It was almost like swinging without a ball, it was a very strange experience.  I didn't really get to test spin on approach or short game as it was quite cold (~2C) and the greens were hard as a rock.  I'll be curious to see how they do once it warms up.   I never had an...
The weather has FINALLY started to cooperate here in Southern Ontario.  My [new] home course opened up yesterday at noon and I was able to go out today and play.  They had a 10 hole temporary layout open (out of 27 holes).  I didn't bother to keep score but I hit 3 or 4 pars which is more than I thought I'd be able to do.  I decided to play it safe and use my 3H off the tee, managed to hit every fairway but had a little distance control issue getting onto the greens.  My...
I use Ultleys method out to about 70 yards (both chips and pitches) at which point I switch to a half to 3/4 swing with my SW.  Distance really isn't a problem and I find distance control with his method is really easy to dial in.   I also like how he defines the difference between a chip and a pitch as simply being with a pitch you're using the bounce and a chip is struck with a normal descending blow hitting the ball first.  So you can hit both 50yd pitches when...
I love Stan Utley's method myself.  I read his book the Art of the Short Game and it made a massive difference in my game almost immediately.  His method is simple but solid and dependable.   His sand method might seem a little odd at first but I've found it to be every bit as reliable as his chip and pitch shots.  I went from just crossing my fingers and hoping to hack it out of the sand to being confident of getting up and...
I was stuck in low 90's for what seemed like ages.  As has been repeated several times now, take basic stats so you have an objective answer as to where you are suffering the most lost strokes.  That will tell you what you need to practice rather than what you think you should practice (not always the same).   For myself, I was hitting fairways but not hitting enough greens.  And when I did hit greens I wasn't getting nearly enough 2 putts.  When I missed the green I...
I've spoken to a few people who really got their money's worth but it seems to depend on how flexible you are for tee times.  I could never get onto a course in my area when I was availalble to play.  So for me it really wasn't worth it (I didn't even make my money back in savings).  I've decided on golfnorth.ca this year, I know lots of people who do really well with that.
Here is a pretty good read if you find this kind of thing interesting.  I don't have any real interest in surfing but the stories about them and the scientists are pretty cool.   The Wave by Susan Casey   http://www.amazon.com/The-Wave-Pursuit-Rogues-Freaks/dp/0385666675
Golf Canada had a blog entry about it a year or two ago.  I don't think our rules differ much [if at all] from USGA so I'd say it's most likely legal for you guys as well.   http://www.golfcanada.ca/blogs/rcga-rules-of-golf/article2840.ece   I messed around with it on the practice green a bunch.  I found it worked quite well as long as the fairway was cut tight enough.
