I never get mad at the golf course!  Unless of course its not being maintained well and costs me strokes.  I do however get upset with myself when I play poorly.  However, I can handle a couple double bogeys and just try to make up for them.  Its the triples and back to back to back doubles that get to me.  I don't do much when I get frustrated I just usually ditch the score card and then focus on practice.  Ive never yelled, thrown a club, slammed one in the bag, smashed...
Hey all.  So I just got fitted into some new irons.  I am running stiff DG300's 3-PW with an extra inch and a quarter of length to account for my being tall.  This length softens the flex slightly. Here's the question, after spending a load of cash on new irons I really need to take a break from buying new clubs.  I would love a new wedge but financially I really shouldn't go for it.  So I am stuck with my regular flex Tom Watson 56 degree 11bounce sand wedge (it is an...
I wish I could say the same about my local range!  Those mats are nasty, I know many others experience a similar issue.  I am sure it is a mat quality issue!  
Hey all, just thought I would share a quick tip and trick I discovered from hitting off of mats last summer.  I noticed that when I hit off of mats in the drizzling rain that I didn't get any of that green plastic mess on the bottom of my club, so I thought why not just put a bit of water on the mat when it is sunny.  Sure enough, an ounce or two of water put on the range mat (where you strike) will prevent the plastic from adhering to your iron soles!   Another thing I...
Second favorite was my first birdie last spring.  140 yards downhill easy 8 iron.  Put it 2 feet from the pin thought I was going to hole it!
My most memorable was last season at my little par 3 course.  On the longest hole 205 yards slight uphill, I pulled out my 4 hybrid and let it rip.  Shot it straight as could be and could hear is sizzle through the air.  Put it 3 feet from the pin.  That was the only time ive ever gotten on the green in 1 for that hole.  Messed up the put but I didn't care the tee shot was so satisfying!
I played when I was really young only a handful of times and I was absolutely terrible, never took scores.  I gave up until I took the game up fall of 2012 at which point I started to keep score and actually play by the rules.  At that point I was playing a cheap 150 dollar set from amazon, probably averaged 110 strokes+ per game. Last summer I bought a boxed set of Adams tight lies and really started to play and enjoy the game.  I played 1-2 times a week and went to the...
I certainly can hit the ball pretty far, but my dispersion drops fast when I am really going for it.  I usually hit with a nice mellow controlled swing at pretty average distance or perhaps even on the lower end, my 7iron usually goes 140-150 carry + role.  3 iron usually about 200-210 with nice solid strike.  Longer irons are available for tall golfers, I was fit at about 1.5" over standard length clubs (effectively makes the shaft play softer).  I prefer +1.25 with stiff...
I am working on consistency with my irons.  I have dropped the woods and driver from the bag because they don't fit me, I am terrible with them and I sacrifice strokes with them.  I decided I should work on what I am pretty good at (ball striking) and develop my swing through iron play.  I upgraded my iron equipment to a set of Mizuno's and got appropriately fit to them (dropped strokes off my game immediately).  I am 6 foot 7 inches tall so fitting was a must.   When I...
I shot 36 at my local 9 hole par 3 today!  Only 1 stroke above my personal best.  Not the greatest score but hey, I was pumped.  Course was absolutely saturated and muddy as heck so I feel like I played a great game!  Also got to use my new mizuno irons for the first time and loved them!
