It is hard to say since I have not hit equipment back ten years ago since 8-10 years ago. Today the lofts are at least one club stronger the ball is much better and is less spiny and thus should go straighter. I would guess I hit the ball about the same but if I hit the old equipment against the clubs in my bag today I would guess I hit the old equipment 5-10 yards shorter.Being 10 years ago means going from age 62 to age 72 and there is no way I should be hitting the same...
It depends on what kind of weather  you are playing in at 40* F. Is it windy, rainy and are the fairways hard or soft. I play 3-4 times a week year round. In the late fall/winter we usually have temps 35-50* during the day and soft fairways. This usually means 1-2 clubs on irons difference. Off the driver at least 20 yards and even more if you are playing a hole that is uphill. The good thing is the greens are very receptive and you can go for the pin if you judge how far...
 I play so often that I rarely go into a prolonged slump. When I have a few rounds that are above normal or I am striking the ball poorly. I sit down and and try to understand what I am doing to cause this problem or problems. Where are my misses, left, right, poor contact etc. I then go out on my patio and stand in front of the sliding glass doors so I can see myself in them. With a golf club I take my stance and look at myself to see how I am setting up. I do this from...
I never think about what I am going to score. When I go out I have the same mind set. Put the ball in play, keep it in the short stuff and try to keep the big numbers off the score card. 
A golf course is a golf course is a golf course. Well no it isn't. There are country clubs, high end golf courses that are close to a private course, there are plenty of courses that have dress codes and there are muni courses that more than likely have no dress code. Then there are the little nine holes in small areas usually out in the boondocks that have the average joe who busts his butt just to make a living supporting his family. These courses are not going to have...
I don't understand the problem. If there is no dress code why should someone be considered trash for what they are wearing. If there is a dress code and they  don't abide by it they don't play. Just because you don't like what someone wears is your problem not theirs. I personally don't care for someone coming to the golf course in a tank top and ragged jeans shorts, but if there is no dress code, again what is the problem. If you don't like it try to get the dress code...
37-39 76 with a double bogey on the front 9. Going very well on the back until 13 and started to lose ita bit. Three straight bogies then finished with three straight pars. Today was may first day using the Super Stroke 3.0 on my putter. Did good for me on several putts inside 10 feet that I usually have been missing. Only really had one bad putt all day and that was a very nice feeling. 
 Growing up the coaches all wore pants, the golf courses were mostly private and no one probably wore anything but slacks. I still think of myself as much younger than my 71 years of age. I think most older people don't really feel the age they actually are at the time. The body ages but the mind stays young. I sometimes look in the mirror and wonder who that old fart is looking back at me. My wife and I have been together 31 years next month. I was looking through some...
I switched to a 13.5* driver @ 42.5" from a 12* @ 45" with great results. I hit the ball almost as far and have far better control and confidence with the 13.5 driver. I did this initially for tight par 4's but the results were so good I took my 12* out of the bag. Been doing this for about two months now and it still working well. 
When I turned 65 I started wearing slacks all the time and still do.  I play early morning in the summer and it is generally cool until somewhere on the back nine. It just does not seem right for someone in the late 60's or older to be wearing shorts. Growing up older people did not wear shorts so that is probably where I get this feeling.
