The USGA says that the average golfer in its system carries about a 15.0 handicap. This translates into an average score of about 90, close to that of a bogey golfer. But "Golf Digest" notes that most golfers don't participate in the USGA system. And because most golfers without handicaps are occasional players who generally shoot higher than 100, the official USGA average score is artificially low.     The good news here is that, for most of us who shoot in the 80's...
FYI: I know several graduates of the Golf Academy and they do not speak well of it.  They are now older college students attempting to acquire a "serviceable" education.   While one, a Navy Vet,  does have a job as a Golf Club teaching pro, he says that generally, the PGA certified programs lead to better career prospects and he was left with some 30 thousand dollars of debt!   He also says that he would definitely not do it again and feels that he essentially wasted...
The US Ryder Cup situation appears to be a train wreck from the point of both organization and frankly, at the moment, talent.   The organization appears to be in a state of disarray and players feel free to criticize captains, both past and mostly present as well as the organization itself.   As for the talent side of the ledger; frankly the Euros have a far more talented, and perhaps most importantly MOTIVATED cadre ...they are vastly more successful at working as a...
As others are already saying; "to each his own" and if you feel comfortable with this set up, and it's producing results-so be it.However, you do realize that ALL of these wedges can be opened and closed providing you with a wide range of options? Perhaps you might consider fooling around with that concept on the practice range/green and seeing if you can feel comfortable hitting multiple shots with a few wedges simply by opening / closing , changing ball position,...
 If you have a slower swing speed I think you'd really like the new Callaway Super Soft...excellent all around performer ; also might try Wilson Staff 50 Elite and/or Wilson Staff Duo.Please see my review of the Callaway Super Soft on the DB for more info....Good Luck!
Thanks  golfingdad.   Hope that my review might help some people make a somewhat more informed decision as they set out to the golf shop to stock up on golf balls for the new season.   I recommend that if one hasn't tried these various balls perhaps try to buy a sleeve of each and play them against each other in order to determine which best fits your game:  Callaway Super Soft (38 Compression), Wilson Staff Fifty Elite(50 compression) , Wilson Staff Duo( 40...
Please read my review posted here of the Callaway Super Soft.....having played the So/Lo for some years as my go-to ball, I now give the nod to Callaway Super Soft-especially for those of us, like myself, with slower swing speeds. Here's the link to my review here on TST website: http://thesandtrap.com/products/callaway-super-soft-golf-ball cheers. GolfingDad,  You say: " You kinda gotta try it out and see how it feels, ya know??" I agree entirely....but garnering a...
FYI: iacas: I have now posted my review in the review section as you requested. cheers.
~~Callaway Super Soft Golf Ball Review  by Stogiesnbogies   FYI: I am a senior player with an 85-90 Max swing speed; a 15-17 handicap who plays senior flex shafted clubs. I hit my average drives between 180-200 yards and max out under ideal conditions with a very rare 220 yard "bomb".    Callaway has produced the lowest compression ball on the market here with a 38 rating. In contrast the Wilson Staff Duo, it's nearest competitor has a 43 compression; the Wilson Staff...
Must have been great to see Two Gloves Gainey swing up close!!   Love effective "home made" swings like Gainey and Bubba...   Absolutely nothing wrong with changing your grip for different shots if that works for you....I've done it in the process of experimenting with the "Baseball style" grip....However mine is not a traditional thumb wrap around baseball grip but more of a "golf style" ten finger grip with both thumbs on top and the butt end hand thumb under the right...
