  1. I was going through one set of irons per year up until I bought my current 695mb's.  I started with super game improvement irons with offbrand clones, then big berthas.  I worked my way into titleist cavity backs and eventually the blades.  I can't forsee me changing these out for quite some time.  I may try others, but I'll be keeping these ones.
  2. What kind of car do you drive?

    I like your style! My Avalanche made it six months, ha ha (after saying it was a keeper).  Was fun teaching my 14 year old daughter to do doughnuts with it though!!! That thing was a beast after modding it up a bit. Here's the "replacement" My daughter won't be driving this one, lol.  We bought her a cheap little Nissan Sentra (which also happened to be the same thing I started with)!
  3. Oops

    Yep, this turned out to be true.  Just got off the phone with them, and went through my scoring record.  Any scores where I could have potentially had a triple marked weren't even factored in, so yes, I was worried about nothing, ha ha.   I just wanted it to be as accurate as possible, being that's it's my official factor.  One good thing about all of it, I found out GC has a scoring app, so no more piling up scorecards and entering totals.
  4. Longest iron you can play

    3 iron, it's why it's still in the bag.
  5. Oops

    Screwed up royally this year....  Last year, I was using a golf app to track my index.  This year, I decided to renew my Golf Canada subscription, to keep it official.  The issue I have is that the app uses the gross scores, and GC uses ESC scores.  What a mess I have now, as I've been entering my gross scores into the GC site instead of the adjusted scores, 19 rounds so far.  Jeesh!!! At least they are going to help me straighten it out, and get my index to where it's supposed to be. On a brighter note, after six opportunities, I finally made my EAGLE on hole one at my local course.  246+/- yard three wood and an 8 foot putt.  I have been hitting the green lately from the tee, as my baby draw plays into it well, but the putting has been killing me.
  6. Course maintenance

    Yep.  "We don't feel like cutting it"...... I guess enough people complainted, as I went out last evening and they were trimmed.  No first cut rough, just fairway to 3" rough, but still better than it was.
  7. No glove golf have you tried it?

    Yep.  I love the feel of my corded grips.  I had previously only worn a glove when using the driver, but this season, the glove hasn't come off the bag since the secound round.  I am a fabricator/welder, so my hands are already well seasoned before the golf season starts up.
  8. Course maintenance

    Cool and wet, actually.  It's just so aggravating.  I mean, it's not just me complaining about it.  I would prefer the course to be a bit more challenging, but not in this manner.  From what I have been reading, the rating can be effected by up to .75 and the slope by as much as 5 points.
  9. Course maintenance

    The caretakers at my local course apparently are intentionally letting the rough grow out to ridiculous proportions this year.  They have no intentions on mowing it any time soon, which is a huge problem for any shots not on the fairway as it is.  It's already 6 to 7 inches deep in most parts, right up to the fringe of the putting greens.   We were out for our weekly men's league, and there were more people out just walking in circles than actually taking shots, on account of not being able to spot their ball. Doesn't this neglect actually change the rating and slope of the course?  I thought the course would at least have to be maintained to the condition it was in when it was last rated, would it not?
  10. ummm, Yikes!!!  200 balls (or more) to warm up?  Those mizzys need to go into the closet/garage for the time being....
  11. The longer the club the more flattening needed, I got my rocketblades shortened instead if flattening! There really are some terrible golf salesmen/fitters around! It's a good job a forum like this exists! I've learnt so much about golf & equipment on here I feel I know more than most of them! (I bet they play better than me though)
  12. Leaving grip tape under the grip.

    I sometimes don't use solvent at all and just put a couple of layers of build-up tape under the grip, usually if i am just trying a grip out, so I can easily remove it with the air compressor (installed with air as well).  Haven't had one move yet.  I use syringes to inject solvent under a grip that does have sticky tape, and just twist the grip back and forth untill it releases, then it just slides right off.  I get the large syringes that are used for animal vaccinations from a local feed store and they are pretty cheap. In your case, I'd be worried about the backing releasing from the sticky tape, especially since you used solvent.
  13. What'd You Shoot Today?

    Stopped in for a quick nine as I was driving past the course today, shot a 41.  Only 2/7 on fairways today, was missing right for some reason.  The second shots were my saving grace as I hit some fantastic shots out of the rough, and only a couple of three putts, even though the aerated greens are still pretty bad.
  14. Holy thread revival batman! My wedge shafts are stiffs, tip trimmed to 8 iron specs.
  15. What'd You Shoot Today?

    42 last evening with 19 putts, 7/7 fairways and 5/9 GIR.  I missed my first eagle of the year by two inches, but I am blaming the awfully aerated greens.  First hole, 246 yards..... hit a perfect draw with the three wood stopping about 18 feet from the pin.  Had the perfect line with a left to right break, ball tracking right for the cup and then it hit the wall.... Well, not really a wall, a stupid aeration hole that had no sand fill in it!!  I left the hole a bit angry, but used the drive as a high note to keep my spirits up for the rest of the round.
