There are a handful of players who were in their mid-30s when I began watching golf who are just now qualifying for the Champions Tour. In theory, I can watch them compete against a field of other players like them. Jim Furyk and Phil Mickelson are in this set.
I don't really know my preference order behind the PGA Tour. There's a Champions Tour event that, most years, is near to where I moved about a year ago. It wasn't held this year I think. I do plan to go, and I also have planned several years to go to an LPGA event near my parents. It hasn't happened.
I guess the answer is, I say I care about CT more than I really do.
But with a putter, played on a decent length course, say like 6,600-6,700+ yds, you're almost never going to get a GIR, where with driver, you will at least have multiple chances. I mean depending on the course and forced carries, it's possible that some people might not even be able to carry a putter over a forced carry off the tee which would add up strokes in a hurry.
Decided this year, due mostly to covid, to start using the balls that are sitting in boxes and bags in my garage. I don't even know where they come from...balls found on the course...bin buys..whatever..
Started the year at a 23 cap. Currently at an even 18.
The majority of them are either titleist or Bridgestone...
I can't tell the difference. I hit 3 or 4 approach shots to two feet yesterday...hit and stuck...had a few others roll out a little but nothing disastrous.
When I hit a crappy shot, its not ball related.
I think driver the entire round, not because I would destroy the putter after a few holes (don't have that kind of swing speed) but rather it would be a more versatile club. I have a good friend who regularly hits driver off the fairway when he wants more of a low stinger type shot. Would be fun to try one round - would definitely make shot placement key!
