Point n Putt putter

Posted
  Review of Point n Putt putter Having played blade putters all my life, trying a mallet style putter was awkward for me in the beginning. I slowly got used to it. I began changing out the weights to find a weight that felt good to me. I came to like the weight of 541g, adding a 62g weight to the heel and back of the putter and a 42g to the toe. This is 200 grams more than my regular putter ,but it felt good.   I've only used it once in play plus a week of indoor practice. I have to admit the "Directional Pointer"  was a nice feature, but I'm not sure how much it helped or hurt my alignment since this isn't a weak spot in my putting game. I did like the feel...

Bushnell Medalist Laser Rangefinder

Posted

Pros: Size, ease of use

Cons: Need steady hand

Very simple to use. Point and shoot. I didn't think I'd like one ,but once I started using it it really does take the guess work out. I still use my gps on my cell from time to time but the Medalist is just what you need.   Fits easily in my bag even inside its own carry case. The only issue I have and its not a big one is sometimes trying to pick up the target is hard because I'm not holding it steady. Take a few breathes and relax and all is well. If you ride you can use the cart to steady your hands if need be.

Swing Sock

Posted

Pros: Easy to use and compact

Bought the Swing Sock with tour weight (11 oz) to help me loosen up prior to rounds when I play courses that don't have ranges to warm up on. It really helps me get loose and get my tempo down. After swinging with it you have to be careful and take a few swings without it to get your swing adjusted to not having the extra weight.  

Zero Friction Golf Tees

Posted

Pros: Durable, various colors,various lengths

Bought a bag of these on Ebay to see how strong they were compared to regular wooden tees. I played my first round with them today. Used 1 tee for 18 holes instead of 13-16 wooden tees. At this pace, the lot of 50 should last me years.Even on iron tee shots where we(golfers) are always looking around the tee box for already broken tees so we don't break a good one on our shot. This tee stayed strong and never bent or cracked. As for the idea of reduced friction equals increased distance. I saw no extra distance in my tee shots today.   All wooden tees have been replaced by these in my bag.

Cobra L5V

Posted

Pros: Size and forgivness

Cons: Have to have a tool to adjust it

Bought this club and after 3 rounds I am sold on Cobra. I love the size of the club and how light it is. Made one adjustment on the shaft and my tee shots act as Cobra advertised. Miss hits stay straighter and give me a better chance at staying in play.   I do recommend this club.

Wonder Glove

Posted

Pros: Price and durability (buy 1 get 1 free)

I have used these gloves for the last 3 years and I'm very happy with their performance. When dirty I throw them in the wash and they come out fine. Because of how much I sweat these gloves help keep my hands dry and able to keep a grip on my clubs while playing in this southern humidity.  

Cordova Country Club

Posted

Pros: Friendly and helpful staff

Cons: Pace of play

Cordova Club is a course I play and enjoy. On a first name basis and as a non-member it is nice to be able to walk in and be greeted with a handshake and how ya been. The course is marked well and you'll have no trouble figuring out your distance. As it described, it is not a boomers course ,but a thinkers course. It is tight and takes the driver out of your hands. You can score well if you stay out of the rough and various water hazards, but if not then be ready to be humbled. The greens were just redone and are in very good shape.   The only thing that hurts Cordova is the pace of play, but that is a problem thru out golf not just their. Most groups will let you...
