Hey From Sacramento

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

Hello,

 

I just started getting serious about Golf again, haven't played a ton since highschool, and I joined so I could learn as much as I could and just read about golf. Right Now I'm roughly an 20 handicap but improving quickly. Before I stopped playing in Highschool I was about a 15/16 and want to be better than that. I am 23 years old so I haven't had too long of a gap and its all coming back to me. I'm currently looking to purchase a few new wedges as I have never bought a dedicated 52/56/60 wedges and after using a friends I saw they could help me out drastically, any advice on what to check out is welcome. I am actually probably a better teachers as its pretty easy for me to pick out nuances in peoples swings and try to help them correct them. Looking forward to learning a lot more and helping out when I can.

Welcome back to the sport Dev! Glad you have found us. 

 

As for wedges, I'm no master, but I'd check out these...

Hopefully we can get a lot more, preferably from the Central Valley of California so we can start a group to rival the SoCal group.c2_beer.gif

So would it be Bakersfield all the way up to the Northern California border vs. SoCal? I think that's fair...a3_biggrin.gif

Or you guys can just join our group!  We already got Brandon, and he's from Sacramento.  Heck, if we chopped Cali in half, you are awfully close to being in our half already, so join up!!!

 

Or wait till the Norcal-ers get a little better organized and start a group and join them.  When they have a tourney, I'll stop by and pick you up on the way!

I'm surprised there aren't more Northern California golfers on the forums. There are always tons of people at the course any given day of the week. 

 

As for wedges thank you for the link. I just got back from sport chalet and hit a few clubs there but you can only tell so much. I checked out the new Cleveland 588 RTX and it was great (of course) a Taylor Made, Nike, and a Callaway Forged that I really liked. Unfortunately I didn't get the names of the TM or Nike because I was not impressed by them at all. I will be heading to Haggin Oaks to get a better selection to choose from. 

 

Thank You for the warm welcome.

I agree, those people South of the grapevine think they are better than all the rest of us.

I could join your group but not sure if I want to drive 4-7 hours to play a round of golf.  What we could do is make a NorCal group, and battle the SoCal group in a yearly 2 day event and see who represents Cali better.  Giants vs. Dodgers...Giants, 49ers vs. Chargers...49ers, Pebble Beach vs. Torrey Pines...Pebble Beach.  I think we got you guys beat in almost every category.

We will one day be organized enough to have a group. Right now the SoCal guys are beating us at that.

I don't know about that.  Giants vs. Padres (even in the win column), Chargers vs. Raiders (should I bother?), Spanish Bay vs. Pelican Hill (Pelican Hill)  See what I did there?

 

But yes, I think expanding our little group outings into bigger outings is a great idea.  I would be all for a norcal v. socal weekend get together at Santa Barbara, or Carmel, or wherever.  Play a two round ryder cup style event or something?  That would be awesome!

Ryder Cup idea sounds awesome.  Lets get on this idea and make it happen. c3_clap.gif

Hello, there.  I am from Northern California, Bay Area to be specific.  How's golf in Sacramento?   The courses seem to be a lot more affordable but are they good?
