I own a 52, 54, 58, and a 60, but I never *never* put the 60 in the bag, and I usually leave the 58 out too (usually P, 52, 54 - sometimes P, 52, 58).  At this point, I don't even take the 60 to the range -- I'm 'okay' with the 52, and I only use the 54 and 58 as sand wedges. I need to practice more with those, but I'm currently trying to put a lot of work in with my pitching wedge instead.   I figure that a less experienced golfer like myself doesn't need more than...
Thanks to everyone for all the posts so far -- I've enjoyed reading them, and I feel like I've learned a bit.   It seems like most people find three main advantages to a range-finder / GPS: *learning the yardage for your clubs *confidence - being *sure* of your yardage on a shot (to hazards, greens, flags, OB, etc.) *figuring out yardage at a new course - especially one not well marked for yardages   And really good players certainly get more out of knowing...
I was just reading a 'recommend a range-finder' thread, and I wanted to post the following:   I'd recommend the Ecco Street Premiere range finder.   I wrote out a completely tongue-in cheek post and then deleted it because it wasn't really relevant to the thread.  But I was left with a question I'd like to pose to all of you:   At what point does a range-finder or GPS actually start to improve someone's game?   I've never really been interested in...
I don't think my game is good enough to justify a range-finder or GPS --- too inconsistent with aim and distance with my clubs anyways.
So you're looking to get grilled?   I don't see how anyone can take offense to what you wrote.   I've played with a guy who talks a big game about himself.  If you listened to him, you'd think he was a scratch, but he scored in the mid-90s when we played. He hit a few nice shots -- and what was interesting was that his recap at the end of the round... only focused on his best shots. He seemed to forget all the bad ones. (He hit an 8-iron to close to 2 feet, so,...
Nice!   ...but what is someone from Ann Arbor doing with Crimson & Creme colored grips! ? !    And out of interest, what do you mean by build project?  Did you reshaft the heads yourself?  And where did the heads come from?  
If you're tired of buying new gloves while you work out this issue try putting a bit of duct tape on the spot that tears.   It's hardy stuff -- not as tacky as the glove, but if it's only a (relatively) small piece it shouldn't make a difference.    And if you don't want the 'classy' silver duct-tape look, I know they sell a lot of different colors and 'team-logo' duct tape these days too.   I have only done this twice. It worked best when I put the duct tape...
I usually "go for it" if I have little danger of losing the ball, or if I feel that the risk is about the same with another club.    If water is involved, then... it depends on how my round is going. If I'm scoring well, then I usually play a bit more conservatively, if not, I take risks.   As an example: there is a 280yd par 4 with trees down the entire left side, and a pond on the right (from about 140 yds on in) that slowly narrows the fairway as you get...
I'm still searching for the bottom of my swing, but I'm getting closer to finding it!   I generally don't top the ball anymore, but I do hit fat shots fairly often.  I'm getting a couple more lessons in the next few weeks, so hopefully I can improve on that area too.   That said, my game has improved significantly in the past year: half of my rounds were below 90, and I broke 80 three times (once from the whites, once from the blues, once from the blacks/tips), and the...
94 (46+48).   Disappointing score, but a fun day. I hit some good shots to go along with the bad ones.  It was windy, so I actually got a wind-assisted drive that went just over 300 yards! (I normally only get 240 or so on my better drives.)  ...ummm, I won't tell you about the drives that went straight into the wind though (but they didn't even make it to 200yds!)....    Rough day for penalties: I found water seven times - twice on the same hole (ended up taking...
