I've been playing in the hi 80s low 90s for a long time and totally enjoy the game...I always say "the good ones play on TV" and realize for a weekend hacker the most important thing is having fun and relaxing....For some reason the bug bit me this year..I've never been one to spend that much on equipment but this year I went crazy,,(for me anyway)..So far this year::::::   A new Odyssey White Hot blade putter..My putting has improved but I do practice more with...
Luckily for you,,the internet can teach you just about everything..I'm 43 and started golfing when I was around 13 or 14..Totally self taught with a set of old Spaulding Sam Sneads..The old forged irons had a sweet spot the size of a peanut and the persimmons (real wood) woods were challenging to say the least...No internet, I would read my dads golf magazines for tips..I spent years just chipping plastic balls around my back yard..We wrapped them in electric tape to...
Great advice, I'll be doing this as well..Man I love this place..Rich
I've been researching this myself for at least a week,maybe two..Mr Barzeski (iacas) showed me some valuable videos and a lesson on bounce,,THANK you sir..I've been golfing along time and shoot high 80s to mid 90s..Sometimes high 90s if the greens suck..I just ordered the Tour Edge Exotics Proto V1.1 wedge..56 degrees and a 14 bounce..I wish I had time to get fitted for the Edel wedges but I barely have time to golf two-three times a month..   My new irons are the...
Thanks for all the advice everyone and the chipping videos...I actually play my chip shots similiar to the videos but I still get some ball carry..This guy appeared to be hitting the same chip shot, but the ball would just "hop" once or twice and stop close to the pin...Thats why I think he was opening the face on his 52,56 deg wedges..   ALSO,,,,I've never played a course that had such differant greens ..Seriously, the front nine greens were smooth and fast...I...
Thanks for all the replys everyone..Now that I know the differance I can clarify what the low handicapper was hitting...He played high pitch shots, not flop shots..I seen him using 52 and 56 degree wedges and "I think"? He was opening up the face a little..He also said they were $120 wedges with almost no bounce?..Looked in my bag and said I don't have anything like that..Like I said the back nine greens were aerated and sandy and were very,very slow...The front nine...
Hello everyone new member here with my first post..I've been golfing for a long time and was taught and play the "bump and run" style short game..I'm around a 16 handicap and stay competitive with all my co-workers, friends and family....But, today a co-worker who I new was a low handicap player,,, played flop shots around the greens and I was impressed...On several holes we were close or next to each other around the green...His close flop shots resulted in all pars..My...
