This challenge is making me look at my game a little differently. One thing I just noticed, of all of my holes on my home course I have made par on all of the Par-5 holes, 3 of 5 Par-3 holes but only 2 of 9 on the Par-4 holes. I need to figure out what I am doing wrong on the Par 4 holes. In fact, I have made par on the Par-5's more in total than on all of the Par 3 & 4 holes combined.
I think the issue is my putting, but need to see if the stats confirm that. Hopefully this gives me an idea of where I need to focus my practice time.
They have a very good reputation, both online and mouth-to-mouth. Advanced technology at the time. As a game-improvement club they delivered ease in moving through the turf and more distance than other clubs of that era. I have a friend who still plays 'em... and he won't change.
I can't speak for @FlyingAce, But I can tell you that I've never had it happen to me. Not even once has anyone walked up to me and offered me unsolicited swing advice at the practice range. I do have some friends there who will walk up to me and talk some shit so to speak.
My wife, however, has it happen to her pretty close to every time she's at the range. For what ever reason, if certain men see a woman working on her golf game they feel the need to go up and give them swing tips. I personally don't give anyone swing tips. But its so strange, my wife and I have been together at the range time and time again and some guy will walk up to her out of the blue and say something like "you should try to keep your left arm straighter on your take away." ... or something to that affect. My wife is always very polite and says something like "Right now I'm just working on some things my swing coach gave me to work on..." Usually that's that. Sometimes the guy will be really persistent. "Well, I can tell you as soon as I started keeping my left arm straight on my takeaway I added 20 yards to my drives." At that point my wife will say something like "I know you're trying to help, but right now you're messing me up. Can you please leave me alone."
