3-E Hogan Apex Plus Irons --- from the Spalding era, so 1999 or earlier. Not sure how old because I bought them used.
I also have a Hogan C455 5-wood. I think that one is only around 10-12 years old though.
Key #1: Steady Head
My Score: .75
I wonder how this might change if I were to watch video of myself.
Key #2: Weight Forward
My Score: 0.5
I think that I have good weight forward at impact but I have a lot of hip movement (I think).
Key #3: Flat Left Wrist
My Score: .25
This is just a guess - I think I do okay here, but I don't know.
Key #4: Diagonal Sweetspot Path
My Score: 0
My path is diagonal... but it is dramatically outside-in.
Don't you think there won't be a direct correlation? I mean, isn't this just personality stuff? For me, my enjoyment is linked completely to my perception of how good I am, AND the way I'm scoring. When I was starting, and almost always over 100, I really enjoyed rounds where I scored in the 90s. Now that I have played regularly in the 80s, I get a little bit disappointed ever time I realize that I'm not going to be in the 70's. One of the times I got in the 70's, I was...
To the OP: I got to play Seascape a few times about two years ago. Fun course and more forgiving than it looks - so many holes run down valleys, so the hillsides can often help push wayward balls back towards the fairway. That was a bonus for me!
In terms of sub-$50 faves, I really like the front 9 at Shoreline. Every hole has a different feel. The back nine? Well, three or four holes are a bit repetitive, but overall, I think it's a good deal and a fun...
Lake Chabot GC in Oakland CA (http://www.lakechabotgolf.com/)
Has a Par 6 18th.
Has a blind Par 3 9th hole that must be over 100yds straight down - you can't see the green from the blue tees (but you can see across the Bay).
(Used to have a periscope on the 14th to check if the fairway was clear - sadly, that's gone now.)
...I LOVE that course.... Play it about five times a year.
(Plus, it's super hilly, which I don't get at all in Oklahoma.)
1) I live in Oklahoma - golf year round. Jan-Feb can be in the 30s but also as high as the 70s (rarely). I play as long as they let me out.2) Yes. 3) I got:#1 TOUR B330-S 50.00%#2 e6 50.00% Either one would be fine. I'll send a PM.
OK... just a little nit to pick, but OU only had two losses. As for the selection of the Sooners over Oregon, I think you're right -- the Sugar Bowl probably felt that more Sooner fans would travel than Oregon fans. That said, OU was still a top 10 team, and the claim that Oregon is a better team than OU? Well, maybe. (...Of course, that's what everyone said about Alabama before the Sugar Bowl too. )
And an 86 -- about where I can be happy.
...Except I was playing with two single-digit players, so I got reminded just how much work is left before I even start striking the ball well... Eegads, they were good.
