Played 9 holes and didn't score well but I hit everything in the fairway for once! Only shots out of the rough were when I put too much power into a chip and rolled behind the green. Chipping/putting were not my friends...
I lived in Augusta for 3 years but had not yet taken up golf... Wish I woulda picked up some mementos while I was there! If only I had known...
Monte, the yardage book sounds like a real treasure. Congrats to you Sir.
Just curious as to what everyone collects from different golf courses, tournaments, personal accomplishments etc. I have seen a wide variety of collectibles and would love to hear some unique "trophies" people take home for their "once in a lifetime" rounds/shots/experiences.
Well I finally bought some new clubs (Idea A12OS Hybrid Irons - 4-6 hybrid/7-GW iron - Reg Flex) to replace my $20 goodwill set of Titleists (Titleist Gold DCI Oversive + 2-8 iron, PW/SW) and I did so in blind faith having never tested these clubs. Probably not the smartest move, and I wish I could have been properly fitted to the newest and best clubs but Im a bargain bin kinda guy and I couldnt pass up this deal... so it's done.
So my question is, How long does it...
Very first tournament (couples best ball format) and my wife and I took 3rd place!! Shot a 70 (Par 58) and made some of the greatest putts of my short golf life!
I hit a pitching wedge on the 2nd hole from 65 yds out and actually hit the pin! Then sunk the short 2 foot putt for par. Then on the ninth I knocked in a 25 foot putt to save par!
I couldn't get it off the tee at all but inside 90 yds I felt like a pro. Had 4 one putts and only 1 three putt!
So I had a lesson today, and the Pro told me " nobody plays 2/3 irons anymore." Then he told me to take the 2/3/4 iron out of my bag completely.
Mind you, he's never seen me hit a long iron. I really like the 2/3/4 irons honestly, but I'm a complete newbie.
So my question is, do I shut my mouth and just remove the clubs or keep them?
If I do remove them do I just replace my entire iron set?
BTW I have 2-8, PW, SW all matching old Titleist Gold DCI Oversize +
I got my very first (and 2nd) par today!!!
9 holes Par 29 - Shot a 39 (personal best) with 3 FIR and 1 GIR and I made a really awesome 15 foot uphill putt for a bogey. I also risked trying out my 2 iron on the final 210 yd par 4 and hit it to the fringe... and eventually parred. Actually did a happy dance out of the tee box after that shot.
If I could learn how to tee off I swear I could par 7 of those holes...
Anyway, best day of golf I've ever had
