Hi from Northern California

2 posts in this topic


I live north of San Francisco and play golf in rain or shine. My handicap fluctuates between 11.5 and 15 the last two years. I can hit any shot the pros can, but it could take a few more shots before I get it right, so it doesn't help much. I like hilly golf courses and one course I play is like a wildlife park with turkeys, quail, bobcats, coyotes, mountain lions, deer, egrets, geese and many other wild things running around.

For me golf is also exercise so I prefer to walk, but at 60 I wonder how many more years that will last!

    • Gun Laws
      By iacas · Posted
      The point is that it's an economic problem more than much of anything else: other countries have a lot of guns but not the inner-city issues we have, so the vast majority of murders with a gun that occur in the U.S. are inner-city related. Gun violence is not really a suburban problem. And Chicago has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. And all of the experts I've read on this topic talk about how CCW is not a problem, about how more armed citizens leads to safer citizens, how the vast majority of the problems are economic, and so on. I read a lot of stuff about this, yes ten years ago or so, but again, basically: Most of the gun violence issues stems from economic issues (inner-city stuff)More guns = safer citizens in other areas.Guns prevent or stop or minimize a LOT more crime than they "cause."I have not really talked about suicide much. I'm not citing a bunch of my evidence. I'm basing my opinion on a whole bunch of books and articles I read. Yes, ten years ago, but I'm not basing it on the results of a few Google searches and my own background. That's not to say that my opinion's better than anyone else's here - they're just opinions, all of them - but I'm pretty comfortable with the foundation upon which mine is based. I'm done talking about it too, though.
    • Does your Gap wedge match iron set or not?
      By PJCdude · Posted
      The funny thing about the Top Flite XL set is that it goes from a 42* 9i to just one wedge which is 50*. I have used that as my GW while using 46,54 and 58 degree Cleveland Wedges. I'm actually dropping it this weekend and experimenting with a 4i. I think that fact that it is different than the rest of my wedges is why I really don't mind dropping it. My 54 is my 80 yds and in club and I love it, 58 is only for specialty shots and steep bunkers. A full PW is 115 and I'm decent at partial wedge shots so I don't think I'll miss the GW too much.

      @Ringworld, what's your current handicap? (I think Mike is going to set the teams soon and will want to make them as even as possible) :)
    • How many fairway woods? Which ones and why?
      By PJCdude · Posted
      I have an RBZ 3W but I only use it off the tee so I don't think you can really call it a "Fairway" wood in my hands. I used to have a 5W but the RBZ 3H goes further and has more manageable misses so that was a no brainer as my "longest off the turf club" (200-215 or so)

      Yeah probably something like that.
