    Thanks everyone, I tried swinging with my feel closer together and a little closer to the ball and that makes swinging the club feel much better.  I am going to try and get to the range today and see what happens.

    Hitting the ball right??? Why?
    I played a round of golf last week and was hitting the ball really well, went to the driving range a couple times and still hitting the ball well.  I played a round of golf yesterday and most of my iron shots were going right, not a slice but like I was aiming right...  So if I were aiming at lets say 12 o' clock I was hitting it in between 1-2 o'clock, just way off target...  What causes this because its really bugging me...  Could I be standing to far away from the ball?  I don't have any videos but anyone who as experienced this please chime in.

    I found putting the ball more towards the middle of my stance helps me out...  I use to put the ball just inside my left foot but found I sliced the ball more, once I put the ball more toward the middle it has really helped.

    Anytime, I don't think you could go wrong with any PING set.  Go to your local golf shot hit a couple sets and find the one that works best for you.  To me it sounds like the S5x series would be a fit for you.

    I needed the G10's because I am still learning the game, and having the G10's irons really helped me.

    I started out using PING eye's, then just recently switched to G10's.  I know they aren't mentioned on the list but I am amazed in the quality of the G10's and the forgiveness of the clubs.

    I have a Sun Mountain MPB and love it.  It has all the compartments I need along with a cooler compartment.  The legs work flawlessly and you have the option of zipping them up of you choose to use a cart.

    Me too!  I never thought in my wildest dreams I would have to pull a gun on someone.  It was a messed up situation with the people that use to own the house before us (messed up son)...  I forgot to lock the door to the garage and left the back door unlocked, I live in a nice neighborhood so I thought nothing of it till I heard my truck alarm going off, then while running down stairs with the gun seeing the guy in our house grabbing stuff...  He is in a mental institution now, so we are good

    I have a couple shot guns, two 12 gauges, 20 pump, and a double barrel .410.  I have one rifle which is a mosin nagant, 4 hand guns two .22, 9mm, and .40.  I am hoping in the future I can pick up an AR.

    I always keep my 40 cal under the bed, and I have actually had to pull it on a home intruder.  Thankfully he listened and I didnt try making a run at me, and I was able to keep him down as the cops came.

    ^^^^  Thats what I am worried about, who will have to drive the mini van in our family lol.  We cant afford to drive a big SUV (gas and what not) so I think a mini van will be in our future in the next year or so.  The wife has the SUV right now and I have the truck, there is no way I am giving up the truck lol.

    Played in 32 deg weather Sunday, with my under armor and hoodie I was good to go...  I actually plan on playing Saturday (suppose to be 28*) if the wind isnt going to be howling to bad.
