I am a Marshal at golf course and in the winter (40 degrees) we have more golfers than one might expect that play in these conditions. I have seen a lot of information about golf cart heater that are used with a plastic cover enclosed golf cart.  Has any one had any personal experience with a particular brand or model.  I purchased one through Amazon that is extremely hard to start but once it is lit does a great job.  I was wondering if anyone had personal experience with...
Following back surgery a few years back I thought that I would never be able to play again.  I would go in my back yard and could not bend enough to hit a wedge or short or medium irons.  A club pro suggested I switch out all of my irons to woods. I've really never had a problem hitting fairway woods so I said what the heck.  I have the following clubs: Driver 200yrds, 3wood 160yrds, 5wood ??,7wood maybe 130yrds, 9wood110yrds, 11 wood??, 13 wood ??, 15wood ??,17wood...
I am 71 yrs. old and thought I would never be able to play again.  I had a laminectomy a few years ago and thought I would never be able to swing a club again.  Someone suggested switching out my irons (which I haven't been able to hit for some time) for high angle fairway woods.  I have 3,5,7,9,13,15,17,19 (19 is the wedge)  I am learning to hit them fairly well and keeps me playing because the shaft is longer and I can sweep the ball and not have to hit so much down and...
I'll try to be brief. I'm 71 and used to play 2-3 x week. Following a laminectomy (L4/L5) and recommended physical therapy, given ok  to try to hit some balls while taking it easy. Began hitting easy pw/9iron. Proved a disaster. several months later Doc said now I have problems with L6 and S1.  Recommended fusion or pain management.  I went with pain management.  Low dose of Tramadol each day keeps me active.  Again tried to hit some ball with wedge.  Really hurt for days...
JML:yuck back surgery how old are you guys?......Longevity offers rewards and challenges.  Just pray you get the opportunity.
Good feedback and I'll try to apply when I get back out on the course.  I really think that I on scoring well (which is important) but failed to realize that as a weekend golfer (when I was playing) I need to relax and enjoy the experience for what it is rather holding myself to a standard that was a little unrealistic.  
I sincerely apologize for being so sensitive regarding the input to my memory question.  But it has always plagued me since I was in my 30's and 40's.  I always wrote it off to obsessing on my total score.  I realize this is not a healthy way to approach the game and I just need to figure out a way to not let the focusing on my score interfere with my shot making.  I have enough challenges to make a good swing without adding anything.  This is why when I was playing,...
I have not talked to my doctor about this but perhaps I should.  I ask what is apparently an absurd issue like this if I thought it was an insignificant matter.  I don't know if I have been so concerned about not scoring badly that I block out the reality of the moment.  But clearly I should not have asked a question concerning what appears to be a subject considered so ridiculous.  
I am probably one of the few that will admit that sometimes I forget how many strokes I have made.  I think for a long time when I was playing regularly with friends we wouldn't keep score and just focus on making good swings.  Or maybe that is just an excuse.  But honestly sometimes I forget how many times I have hit that darn ball.  I know there are gadgets/clickers that can help but I may forget to click the clicker. Ha Ha.  Seriously it can be awkward when playing...
Thanks for the input. I have another question.  Somewhere along the way I picked up a Nicket 3DX Iron wood 2/17 degrees.  I think I probably bought it when I first read about hybrids.  What is the difference between this club and say a 17 degree Adams wood?  Additionally, given the ambiguity associated with the term "average golfer", about how far should this club hit the ball, assuming a good swing?
