Just wait 'til you pick up a 14 club compartment stand bag that's loaded with GPS, laser rangefinder, cell phone, keys, six balls, three wedges, driver, 3 metal, in between metal, 4-9 iron, water bottle, and miscellaneous items. It will make you forget about how heavy your shoes are.

I bought a pair of Addidas tennis shoe type for the spring and summer when it is dry in my area. Walked a couple of rounds and practise time to break them in, think these will be much better than all leather heavy ones come warmer temps.

I brought some Adidas Tech Response 3.0 summer golf shoes to wear with shorts this summer,they should be nice and light weight, i hate the look of normal leather golf shoes with shorts they just arent meant to be worn with shorts lmao...

    • As Vinsk mentioned, do you know your swing speed or even better ball speed? The cheapest way to experiment would be to simply extend out the current shaft 1 1/2 inches. Although this is more than I ideally like to extend a club, I think in your case it would be without issues. This would cost you all of $17 more or less for the extension and a new grip. If you would rather go the new shaft route, I would drop into the lower 50g weight class to build to 47inch or whatever you want to try. Probably would also want something more butt weighted. That Riptide comes in a CB model at 50g which wouldn't be too expensive. I think you can find them for under $80.
    • Well, I'm going to have to go against the consensus here.  Unless you know for virtual certainty that you ball crossed into the penalty area ask yourself this.  Is there a possibility that your ball could be lost outside the penalty area?  IF so then you would need to act accordingly.  Back to the tee or if E 5 was in effect then out to the fairway and add 2 strokes.  
    • The primary rough was pretty short though. On 18, where a lot of players missed right off the tee, it was short. I agree the long grass was nasty.
    • There was no rough. Those things you mentioned are part of the course design. Rough can be grown or trimmed to ones liking. 
    • Yes. Also, try to get your partial wedge distances down for your current wedges.
