    Welcome Mike, I am also a League City resident. We have a ton of good courses in the Houston area. If you get real serious and want to join a club Canongate has a good deal where you can play South Shore and Mag Creek.

  2. twoiron added a post in a topic Do you give/ask advice when paired with strangers?   

    I never ask give advice to strangers or ask for it. Recently got pair with a hack who thought he was Tiger. He was trying to give my buddy advice who he didn't know and the guy had no clue what he was talking about. I shut him down pretty quick because he was making my buddies swing worse. I give advice to people I play with but only when they ask. To me it's rude to offer advice to someone you don't know.

    Plastic only it's a lot safer and easer to swing. Kids love to hit stuff at least mine does so a real club is dangerous. I got my boy his first real club around 4 from golfsmith. Mine in Houston has tons of kids clubs.

  5. twoiron added a post in a topic Recycled golf balls - no significant difference   

    ordered 9 dozen pro v1's from lostgolfballs.com at AAAA grade. The balls play great, good distance and stop on a dime. I have seen no difference between a new box.

  6. twoiron added a post in a topic taking somebody out for the first time   

    personally I don't think a few buckets of balls is enough. Maybe 6-10 buckets. I did before I ever got near a par 3 course. There are far to many hackers clogging up the course who can't hit the ball 100 yards. Or if they do hit the course they need to learn the fine art of picking up the ball and moving to the next hole.

  7. twoiron added a post in a topic Tell us about your best golf day ever   

    Younger days my best golf day ever was breaking 80 on a fun course with great firends. That was surpassed two weeks ago by playing a par 3, nine hole course with my son for his first round of golf. My best golf day until I am 6 feet under will be any day on the course with him.

  8. twoiron added a post in a topic Srixon Z Star Tour Yellow - anyone on board with these?   

    there are two lighted courses here even though they are well lite if you hit a ball off the fairway or your not playing close attention it can be tough to find your ball. I need to pick up a box.

  9. twoiron added a post in a topic Best Ball for Mid, Mid-High Handicappers   

    picked up the NXT Extreme because they were on sale for $19 at golfsmith. It literally felt like I was hitting a rock and it says low spin but they mean NO spin. I could tell a huge difference in my short game because the ball would not check up at all. Luckily I found some NXT Tour's and Pro V's to finish the round with.

  10. twoiron added a post in a topic Take at least 5 strokes off your score   

    You can take far more then 5 strokes off for high handicappers. Just look at your score card and how many of your shots were within 100 yards. I played 9 last week shot a 40, played the same 9 this week and shot a 48. I struck the ball much better on the 48 round but around the green it was a disaster.

  11. twoiron added a post in a topic Tattoo Golf   

    I am always amazed what people will spend money on. $50 plus shipping for a "golf" shirt with a skull and crossbones on it. The irony of trying to look tough while playing golf.. haha

  12. twoiron added a post in a topic What Do You Do for a Living?   

    This looks like a great board and people seem helpful. Own a real estate company in the Houston area. Played for 11 years took a 5 year break and started playing again last month. Now I am on the course once or twice a week.

  13. twoiron added a post in a topic What do you do when you hear FORE!?   

    crouch down with my back to the hacker, lower my head to my chest, cover my balls. Golf ball will hurt your body but if you catch a head shot they might have to name the hole after you.

  14. twoiron added a post in a topic Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?   

    Tiger has to surpass Jack's major wins in order to be considered the best of all time. But I don't think it will be long before that happens. I just hope Tiger stops embarrassing the game of golf with his behavior.

  15. twoiron added a post in a topic Staff Bags vs. Cart Bags   

    every person I have ever seen with a tour bag was a player until last week when a guy comes out on the range with a tour bag and blades. He was horrible and got so mad he stopped after about 20 balls. It doesn't bother me but if you have a tour bag right or wrong people will expect you to have some game.
