I guess one thing comes to memory is a few years ago I played a round with a couple from up in Wisconsin. Long story short I kept driving to my ball after the husband and I teed off without waiting for his wife to tee off completely out of forgetfulness.
The husband didn't say anything but she finally said "Excuse me, I haven't teed off yet, would you please mind waiting?". I have never felt like a bigger bonehead. Of course I apologized profusely for a couple of holes but I could tell she was a bit indignant for a while. She probably thought I was a sexist jerk.
Was a good lesson in mindfulness for me.
I Just have to disagree. There was plenty of poor shots and decisions we don’t expect to see from professionals. And ok..that can happen. But again..I’m not real interested in tuning in to watch professional players hit a 7i 155yds to the middle of the green, or lay up to a 470yd par 5. Hell I don’t watch the men for their ‘strategizing.’ I don’t learn anything from watching the ladies play. They’re astronomically better than me. I learn nothing from them being able to hit a 5i 180yds very consistently. They’re that much better it’s not fascinating at all.
#21 - The Solheim Cup - Definitely underrated. This is a tournament/cup with really brilliant golf if we cared to watch it. Especially for amateurs. The male pro's tend to rely a bit more on raw power than the women. Even from thick rough, the men are strong enough to muscle the ball. We can definitely learn more from watching the women. They strategise better if you are an amateur.
Mine is similar. I have rather odd mix of 4H and 4i. My wedges are 48, 54 and 60. (You apparently consider your PW as more 10-iron than wedge).
The 4W + 7W gives an extra margin of error for shots off the fairway and out of the rough, especially for mature Senior golfers like us.
For the uninformed, the 7W is a beast out of medium rough (unless you are super-skilled and never end up there), and solid on longish par 3 holes and on holes with landing areas too short for driver.
I like your bag the way it is. A mix of finesse and power. You are a role model for veteran amateurs!!!
Only slight overrated. I don't think there is any more buzz around it than it did. It's not like they pulled in 'million dollah sponsors' or anything to begin with.
I don't blame Inkster and Co. for overselling it a bit. I would if I were her. But yeah, the whole things a bit meh.
