Hi all,   I'll be traveling to Naples next week to visit the in laws. My father in law, who lives there 6 months a year, is a golfer and we plan on playing 2 or 3 rounds. He has a few in mind but I'd like to come armed with some recommendations. I see the golf in Naples is quite pricey so I'd like to keep rounds below $100 bucks. We might splurge and play one round over a hundred bucks (if the course is worth it) but we would really like to keep it cheaper.   So...
Hi all,   I've been in the hunt for an instructor for sometime now. I'm actually looking for a "coach" so to speak. Someone who has as much interest in seeing me improve as I do. Sometimes I feel as if tho an instructor is just running you through the paces as he waits for the next student. I don't want that again.   Doing my research, I just signed up for my first lesson with Marty Joyce at White Pines. I'm hoping he may be that guy. Marty is a past ILPGA...
Hi everybody,   Yesterday I spent a couple hours at my local Club Champion golf fitter hitting the new TM Rocketbladez. Hitting both versions, the Tours and the regulars, I came to a conclusion that, quite frankly, I don't know how to take. I'll admit, I've been intrigued by all the hype following these irons. I'm not the greatest golfer around (I play to a 16) so I thought that just maybe these irons would help give me that extra edge this season.   Well, after...
Is that NW of Chicago?   I have not yet played it. It is one I'd like to though
I tend to sway backwards a bit during my backswing. Or I don't make a deep/complete turn going back. I try hard to overcome them but they always find a way to creep back in!
Ogio Sultan II cart bag in black. It was a birthday present from the wife last July!   I'll never go back to a stand bag again!  
St Andrews Golf.......The Joe Jemsek Course this morning.   Played from the blues. (tips) 6770 yds 72.0/122   I played the Hex Black tour for the first time and really liked it. Didn't play all that great on the front. (Tee'd off just before sunrise. Was still a bit cold) Putted like crap all day. Some greens still had enough dew on them to give the ball a rooster tail. Other greens were as dry as a bone. Never could figure out speeds. Did manage to salvage a...
Police officer by day and astronomer by night.   As side gigs, my wife and I own an astronomy related online business which has actually proved to become quite a handful the last few years. I also co-own and operate a successful online astronomical forum.   But its the police work that really pays the bills! (and green fees)
Just played St Andrews Golf Course in West Chicago this morning. Decided to pick up a sleeve of the Callaway Hex Black Tour in the pro shop and try them out.   Two words. I like!   Having never been a real long hitter (average ~230yd driver) these balls didn't disappoint. I was probably averaging right about 220 all day in some wind and cool conditions. Ground was extremely soft with very little roll out. Firmer and warmer conditions and I'm sure these balls...
We should try to get together sometime then. If not before winter then definitely in the spring.   In fact, we just played St Andrews this morning.
