... From the ladies tees :D. 4990 yards, rated 68.5/111 for the ladies, unsure what it would be for the men. Next shortest tees are 5678 yards and are rated 67.4/110 for the men. Anyways, I had 4 birdies and 5 pars on the front for a 31 (par 71 course) and 2 birdies/2 bogeys/5 pars for a 36. Both bogeys were stupid mistakes. The first was on a short par 4 (about 270 yards) that is nearly impossible to drive as it is an elevated green with a 20-30 ft high rock wall blocking...
If you click on the link there is a post that says he isn't hitting real golf balls but is hitting almost golf balls. I'm assuming they are foam?
I really like this method but recently switched to a new home course that has really slow greens. The pendulum stroke works well for short-medium length putts but any long lag putts are impossible for me to handle without using an incredibly fast tempo. I'm still figuring out how to combat this and am temporarily trying a bit more of a hitting stroke for long lag putts. 
I've started using a much different swing for my driver and it seems to be working out really well. Does anyone else do the same? My driver swing is very steep while my irons/woods are very in to out. Driver tends to be very straight while my irons/fairway woods range anywhere from large straight draws to push draws to straight pushes.
Out of curiosity, what does your dynamic stretch routine consist of?
It's probablyThis is especially true. At the course I typically play I very rarely do not have at least a NGIR. With the exception of a couple greens, they are all fairly flat and do not have tricky terrain surrounding them (most aren't elevated/no heavy rough near them). However, the greens do seem to be smaller than other courses I have played. On top of that, I am smart about avoiding penalty strokes (ex: I typically don't go for a par 5 that is protected by water in...
I went to a new course today with a couple buddies (Crystal falls golf course in Leander, Texas. Rated 70.6/126 from the tees we played from) and was shocked at how different it was. Previous courses I have played have generally been long, flat and mostly wide-open with a fair number of bunkers. This course was gorgeous but had massive elevation changes, was incredibly tight and did not have a single bunker. I ended up shooting a 91 while hitting 9 GIR (:O) and only losing...
After getting fit at golfsmith and hitting a variety of clubs here is what I decided to order and fit into my $800 budget.   Driver (229.99) - Nike covert 2.0 tour (squeezed the budget for this one because I ended up really liking it) 3 wood (79.99) - taylormade rbz stage 2  5 wood - Kept current rbz nike covert tour 3H (84.99)  Cobra AMP cell 4-PW, AW (339.99) Cleveland 5888 RTX black 54 degree wedge (109.99) Kept current putter   Including a couple additional...
I go to UT Austin. If you are in Austin at any point this summer or want to meet somewhere in between and play a round just shoot me a PM! Thanks for the compliments, I appreciate it! 
I would definitely agree.  I currently have a steel stiff shaft in my i3s (unsure of the specific shaft other than that). My primary reason for wanting graphite shafts is that they are lighter and I would probably gain a few mph in swing speed (I'm definitely not particularly strong for my age so figured this was an easy way to gain a small boost in iron swing speed). But, I could be talked into steel. I'm not super concerned with changing my putter as I am able to get the...
