I went to the doctor last year, he indicated I had tendonitis in my left shoulder. He did all the movements to check for rotor cuff issues and I had mobility. I got a cortisone shot on my shoulder in the back.  The pain went away, but there was still some clicking and popping and sluggishness to the shoulder. The Doctor attributed this to likely a small tear in the rotator cuff. He advised to take aleave or advil and continue my lifting and stretching routine (which was...
 My local golf Galaxy takes trades as well but I am probably getting only $5 for the 3 drivers, 1- 7 wood and 2 volkey wegdes (54 & 60) I no longer carry. I liked my 7 wood, but it was an old Bertha metal head, that I got for $100. But I can not use it out of the rough, which is where I seem to play out of quite often.My 4 Hybrid gives me 200 yards, so as much as I would like a 3, I dont know where it would fit. 3W-2305W 2154H 200 My game on my home course is basically to...
  The only reason I have hung on soo long with the 5H, is that once I put money into it, I cant afford to get anything else.Just this year I bought a used Callaway Driver with a Stiff shaft for $100, but I was unable to use it on the course. Not anywhere near what I was doing at the range (which caused me to buy it). Like I said I have a 4H (taylormade).I still think I am a little young and have too much power and distance to hit a 5 H, but All i think of is all the clubs...
A year ago I bought a nickent 7dx hybrid for a great price of $70. I got this hybrid because I was just unable to hit my 5 iron (2008 big bertha) effectively. The problem I am having now is I have never been able to effectively hit the club off the tee. I don’t often use a 5Iron, usually on long par 5s and long par 3’s.   I will say this club out of the rough is great, it glides and flies through it. However off the tee and fairway, the head feels oversized and heavy...
I played 63 holes over the weekend over the course of 36 hours. 18, then 18, then 9 then 18. During the 1st or 2nd 18 my left hand and my pinky knuckels started to get really sore when I gripped the club. I do have an issue with gripping to tightly. The pain did help me keep a light grip, how ever now it is just sore. I am taking double doses of Aleave. But now that I am at work, where I type alot, it is still sore.   Anyone ever experience this? Is it arthritis? a...
Reading through the thread all I can say is what a difference a year makes. I know carry my driver, 3W, 4H...... I have dropped my 7W and only carry my 5W when I play scrambles, or I know I will be riding in a cart (which is during scrambles. My drives have left me usually hitting driver wedge on par 4's and driver 4H on par 5. (but that is mostly due to the courses I play) The funny thing is I have been giving serious consideration to dumping my 3w. I hit it great off the...
I guess I should mention that my lofts are as follows:   Driver 10.5 3W      15 4H       22 5H       25     I could add a 5 wood at 18 degree!   Not sure what a 3H run in degreeS!
I only use my 3 wood off the tee and off the fairway. It is useless out of the rough. The 5 wood is a little better out of light rough because it has a smaller head, but I tend to leave hybrids out of the rough.
I should mention I just got back from a golf weekend. Three days on the same course with the same pin placement. I played a 215 yard  par 3. I flew the ball 15 yards over the green once and was short twice.   On my home course I have the same issue with a par 3, if the flag and pin are back I could be looking at a 210 to 215 shot.   I can either be short or too long.   Like I said out of the rough and off the tee I did not know if a 5 wood was the answer or...
I hit my driver 250+ MY 3W is 225+ or more on a good day the next club in my bag is 4H which I get about 200 yards. Sometimes more with wind and proper ball striking, but not consistently.   The rest of the bag is 5H, 6i to 56wedge   I have an old 7 wood & a 5 wood that I used to carry, but dropped them because I could not hit them out of the rough (where I usually play from) I need to put a club in my bag to cover the 215 yard shot. Would that be a 5...
