  1. Getting started in the golf industry

    I have a lot of sales experience so I think I might be able to try the equipment route. I also have management experience though, but I think its true its very hard to become a course manager. Any thoughts on where to look for a job with an equipment manufacturer? Im wondering if I might have to go back to school for this...
  2. Getting started in the golf industry

    I recently was laid off from a bank management job and I was interested in getting a job in the golf industry. Anyone have any thoughts or ideas on how I would go about doing this? Would I have to go back to school first? Im not even sure what jobs are really out there. But I would need to make around 40 to 50k per year. I live in the bay area and we have a ton of courses so I imagine theres something out there. Thanks in advance.
  3. You need to take lessons. If you have swing flaws best to get them corrected early on or you will never reach your full potential. Even if you only got one to really learn the basics of the setup you would be way ahead.
  4. Has anyone tried this out yet? And what have your experiences been with the results?
  5. Favorite golf course you have played. Place. Was. Sick.
  6. Getting ready for fall/winter season?

    i live in the bay area so there is no real off season for me either. the days just get a little shorter. you def have to pay for this kind of weather though. cost of living here is a joke
  7. Presidents Cup! Anyone From the Bay Area?

    Im going during the Sunday round. Im sure parking is going to be bad. Where are you supposed to park anyway?
  8. Lonnie poole golf course in raleigh

    yeah i played there. had a rough round. was like 5 over thru nine and went 12 over on the back. but the course was in pretty solid shape. long for sure. i had a drive fairway wood on of the par 4s. stuck a pretty cool 6 iron from like 175 to with in 15 feet. thanks for the tip
  9. Im thinking between the wilson ci7's, mizuno mx 200's, taylormade r7's, and maybe the titleist ap1's. As much input I can get would be great. Ive hit them all except the wilsons as there is no dealer for them near me, but ive heard great things and they are by far the cheapest. Thanks.
  10. What'd You Shoot Today?

    shot an 83 at tobacco road, thought that place was supposed to be hard? haha. just kidding. if anyone goes down to the pinehurst area you should really check out tobacco road, it definitely leaves an impression.
  11. Anyone played this course yet? I know it opened pretty recently, but Im wondering if anyone has played it yet. Heard it supposed to be nice and I might play next week, but Im debating between this one and Finley at Chapel Hill. Thanks for the input.
  12. rock steel in both. better feel on the hybrid.
  13. Tried the Camilo Villegas workout today...

    camilo had some good exercises on there. i want to start to use the bosu and swiss ball more in my routine. i wonder how often he works with a trainer...
  14. going to visit my folks at the end of the month and i want to play somewhere nice. not going to play pinehurst or pine needles and tobacco road is aerating their greens. any other suggestions would be welcome. thanks.
  15. Hitting through greens

    Its a combination of many things but I think everyone agrees you shouldnt get roll with a sandwedge or even hit one 105 yards. So hit down on the ball more. The drill that someone mentioned with the tee(or a towel) behind the ball should help.
