Mine was an eagle. It was in Mrytle Beach and I hit a driver, 5-wood to a long two tiered green. I was still very young and a wonky swing but 2 shots connected. I had probably 50 feet for eagle and it just was a lucky putt that went in from far downtown. I have had many Eagles since, but would have to say 1-2 bunker hole outs. I know I've had one, I can't remember if that was the only one. On my home course, where I've been a member for 5 years, I've not holed out...
Jon, I mean this with love, but that's horrible. :) Don't accept that things will only get a little better if you practice more. I don't know how long you've been playing, but I'm going on 30 years (and I'm only 41) and I am still learning new things to put the ball in the hole with less strokes. I've learned more in the past 3 years than the previous 26. And that's with a job that's gotten brutal in the past 2 years, Plus 2 young kids at home that are very tough. ...
Just ordered 2 more dozen.   Finally got decent enough weather to feel normal again and try something new.   I think they are very good.   I haven't hit enough to get a sense of whether it might fly further or launch better than what I normally use, but I really like the feel around the greens.   Which is very important to me because my greens have a lot of slope on them and I want to feel as comfortable as possible.
I understand that.   And it's funny.   My point was that we keep getting the same thread, again and again between 2-3 different types of people and it's starting to be a drag to come to this section because the topics at the top are generally running very negative.   Thread about Tiger are the biggest number, mainly because he is golf's biggest draw. FTR, here's what I think the types are: 1 -  Tiger haters no matter what2 -  Tiger loves no matter what3 -  People with a...
There's an expensive course by me that does 15 minutes between times so that people don't have to wait, or greatly reduces the chance that there is a waiting issue.   It's more money for precisely that reason.   I sympathize with the OP.  When you pay a premium for something, you don't expect it to be a bad experience.   Generally the nicer the course, the higher the greens fee because you are being charged for the experience of that.  Unfortunately when you start going...
I went years ago in 2000.   I stayed there, and I would highly recommend staying there.   It's a very nice resort.   All the courses are recommended.   But they all have different characters.   #1 is a shorter, older course that is perfect for a leisurely afternoon. #2, #4 and #8 are the most prestigious that they have. #7 is completely different from all of them.  Completely different feel and character. #3 is also older, but more like a normal golf course. I...
Tour Talk is becoming one of 2 things:   1 -  What pro is someone mad at this week? 2 -  This is how much I love/hate Tiger Woods?   I think we need to have a sub-forum of the Grille Room for this kind of stuff and move everything there.   edit:   3 -  What pro will I dislike because of non-golf stuff, yet excuse for someone I happen to like?   Really, I have my opinions based on what I know like every body else, and sometimes have a comment about it.   But some...
It cant be worse than all the Cialis ads that I remember being on during golf. Behind every grinning man in those ads is a woman who is pissed she's not being left alone anymore.
I chose three, albeit relucantly because the greens are fast and undulating at my home course so I am generally limited to 60,64 and somtimes 56. I prefer to also using 7-9 irons for bump and run, but my place doesn't have many options for that. Also like to do a putter stroke with a hybrid or 6-iron. And will turn the putter 90 degrees and hit the ball with the head of the putter as well.
They just started this at my club near Pittsburgh. My wife and I think that it's a no-brainer to do it as it stands now. It's $60 for us and replaces what ClubCorp calls Singature Gold (the package for traveling) and something called the Pittsburgh Society which gave us a 2 for 1 dinner once per month and some perks at other dining places. Our only thinking is that they might slowly raise prices to make it less of a deal for the 50% off dining. Our club had a bad...
