Sand Wedge for High Handicappers

Recommended Posts

At my course, the sand is fluffy when dry and much harder when wet. Sometimes, the bunkers are inconsistent, one will be softer (and drier) but the next one will still be wetter and harder.

Same at my course. When I asked the course owner, they told me that sand bunkers are supposed to be a "fair hazard and consistent equal to the rough or even the fairway". E.g. a fairway should not suddenly become stone hard.

After it rains I avoid ruining my club by hitting hardened sand and I drop the ball next to the bunker.
Although I am considering getting a second beater SW club for those days.

    • DAY 6: practiced tempo with Orange Whip Trainer (10 min).
    • I’ll join this foursome - my timing is flexible and this will allow me to drive back east after the lesson on Saturday. Will join you for dinner on Friday as well. My wife / sometime caddy might also join. Thanks for arranging @StuM!
    • Why did the employer require a test that’s not even recommended by the CDC? Not really ball busting but this is part of a problem we’re facing way too often as physicians. Employers, schools, all making up their own protocols without knowing what they’re talking about. I get your ‘wanting to know’ but know what? Like you said, it’s just a number that means nothing at this time. It’s also possible that insurance wouldn’t cover it as it’s not medically necessary.
    • Lab Corp has a "Semi-Quantitative" test that I'm considering taking.  I'm a leukemia survivor, had a bone marrow transplant, I have GVHD, and I'm on immune suppression medication (tacrolimus, sirolimus, prednisone).  Some of my Dr.'s patients in the same situation as me got no response from the vaccine I took the qualitative test and I have antibodies, but I have no idea how protected I am.  I recently got the Moderna booster. The Lab Corp Semi-Quantitative test gives no indication of what is a good response.  It's just a number.  I don't see the point of taking the test if there is no way to interpret the number.  Still I want to take it, I can at least compare it to the number my neighbor got (his employer required the test).
    • I’m surprised you held onto them for 20 years. They would have ended up lost of in the trash long ago if mine.
