I know what i want from this video. I want the 133 seconds of my life back that i just wasted watching this...
Shindig brings up a lot of good points. Another thing to consider is how contoured are the greens you are putting on?? Have you tried a few different courses and have the same problems from course to course?
I keep a 4i in the bag for 2 reasons. Off the tea on a par 4 or 5 where accuracy is a must. Some might call that a layup. I feel a 4i is much more accurate than a hybrid. And for the occasional punch shot out from under a tree limb. If you come across those two shots you might want to consider putting it in your bag. I would go to the range and do a comparison for distance and accuracy against a hybrid and see how good you can shape it keeping a very low ball flight...
I was addressing Trevino's references about challenging pros with long courses while there is a way of setting up a golf course to be challenging without the length, hence Merion. So in summary of my point No i don't believe a course needs to be very long to challenge modern tour pros. Never mentioned a beginner taking it on, nor would a beginner enjoy playing any course that is set up for PGA competition standards for that matter...
I don't see how length is a good excuse to make a course challenging, just expensive. Merion did a pretty good job of humbling the field in 2013 at a shade under 7000 yards. Looked it up and Rose won with a 1 over par 281. I recall the talking heads going on about how the field was going to shred the "little" course. Who fooled who? The tour wants to show all the bombed drives they can. I guess accuracy, good golf course management and playing smart doesn't give as much...
I recall having posted some negative feelings about Golf Galaxy in my area. They just recently built a new and much larger one maybe a mile from where I work. So i stop in from time to time just to browse the new stuff. I have interacted with a few of the guys there and maybe they are all new hires or a different managerial direction in that store but everyone i have spoken with has been great. Just recently went through some fittings for a 3 wood and a putter. They...
Ahhh. you think march11934 is my birth date? (1934)   ...    11934 was a zip code. 
No, in my forties. No wonder your questioning my distance. I have no idea where your finding this info, i looked around and the only thing i can find is my join date. Not in my 80's.    I figured out my pull issue. My grip. Strong left hand (i can see most of my knuckles) with a right handed swing. I keep varying away from it and gradually loose control of my swing until i remember to strengthen it and everything comes back. I find my left hand effects the quality of the...
Yep, i do hit my G25 3 Wood 250 without an issue. If i lay into it it can go a bit further. And yes unfortunately whatever i am doing with driver is starting to cary over to my 3 Wood. I normally play from the Blue tee's and leaving driver out of the bag would make some holes a bit more difficult. The other day I was trying a G30 3 Wood as was getting up to 109mph  265+. Prior to this duck hook thing.... probably something i have to spend some time and work out. This...
Well i met with an instructor Saturday morning. Made a correction with my stance. Said my left shoulder was up too high and tense. So i flattened out my shoulders and seemed to get a nice draw and plenty of distance.   today i went out to play a round. Pretty easy course with wide fairways. What a disaster. I am not hooking my 3 Wood along with my driver.   No solution. I suck.
