Something tells me, given your location, that we are talking about the same jack-wagon. I know that he cost Dick's hundreds if not thousands of my golf dollars since I crossed the company off of my list due to his "I'm too good for this store and YOU " attitude.
The only way I knew that there were PGA Pros in the Dick's Sporting Goods that I USED to frequent was when I was getting some information together before I "filed" a complaint against a "Pro" at my local store. A few years back I was in the market for some new(er) gear. I had busted my butt on my part-time lawn care business and business had been good. The Golf Galaxy that I now pour money into was not yet up and running, so Dick's was my spot. Well, I walk in and wish to...
80 (38/40) from "The Tips" today. 133/74.1 and 7200 yards. Second time playing from back there and my mistakes were not due to length or even from having to hit different shots into the greens than I am used to... just a REALLY bad double and two more of those 3-putts that keep me awake at night. Decided last week to give the Tips a shot. My handicap had recently dropped to a 7.3 and I was really just looking to get different views of the courses that I play in a pretty...
80 from 7150yds. Two doubles and 2 three-putts. Ugh!!! So close... so far! Left hand low is hurting my distances (leaving them short) but I'm going to grind through it. Overall it's is a better grip for me... I think...
Not starting THAT debate on such a site as this, but I will allow myself to say that I disagree with you on that last part. I grew up hunting and was exposed to long guns at an early age. Not all people are/were. However, "we" can not and should not "madate" gun safety classes or training onto people (kids) who express NO interest in learning such. Guns are NOT for everyone, nor should they be. Driving classes are not mandatory for people who do not wish to drive. That...
As a 16-year Law Enforcement veteran - one that actively trains and practices with issued AND off-duty weapons, my chances of hitting my target(s) has been proven and shown to only be approximately 25% of the time when under true distress, active gunfighting, or when I do not have "the jump." That's for me... someone who fires pounds of lead down-range every month just to stay sharp; someone who worked crime scenes invloving officer-invloved shootings for nine years... 15...
Wow - this has been one of the most entertaining threads I have read in a while, which is saying a bunch because there is wonderful information and discussion throughout this site. That being said - I have never NEVER EVER EVER seen/read someone "defend" their favorite golf ball like I have been reading here. This thread was meant, I believe, to bring attention to a new line of balls by Calloway. Nothing more. Nothing less. Apparently "Union Jack" takes great offense to...
Right of, and long of that trap is a very sharp drop-off into a heavily wooded (boar sighted in there twice) stand of trees and brush. You need climbing gear. This photo appears to have been taken during the fall or winter. That natural area in season is thick with 3 to 4 feet tall brush and greenery. Also, the course's natural areas are posted as "protected natural habitats" and as such, you are not permitted to venture into or play out of. Barring a decent head wind AND...
Tempo, tempo, tempo! well, for me at least. I am 6'0" and 240. Far from a swimmers body, but I carry it rather well I guess. I am 37 years old. It doesn't take a rocket surgeon to realize that I'll not have the limber and lenghty follow-through of Rory, Wie, or any number of other young guns out there. I am an 8 currently and i strike the ball rather far and consistent. Really focusing on the Ball Flight Laws, consistent tempo throughout my bag, and a concerted effort to...
Yep. That's the beast that haunts my hopes and dreams of breaking 80 on/at this course on a regular basis. Ha! I guess I need to clarify a few things: First - the slope from tee(s) to landing area is rather severe; so much so that one can not see the "ideal" landing area from the tee box. This is the reason that for even a "kind of long hitter" like myself, even a 3w - especially this time of year, is a risk. (I say "kind of long hitter" in that while no, I'm not Mr. 300...
