BINGO! Yes Lochte and his buds did some stupid stuff. They got drunk, they peed in the bushes (or on the wall), and Lochte ripped an advertising sign off the wall! And this makes them ripe for an armed robbery?
Good God almighty! The PC gift for rationalization on this forum astounds me! Weapons were brandished and money was demanded. That sure sounds like armed robbery to me! Yeah, the money went to the store owner! Please! The "security guards" were off duty Brazilian prison guards moonlighting for some extra money. Well, they sure made some extra money that night!
BTW, what kind of gas station needs security guards? None where I live.
Plus, the Brazilian authorities extorted nearly another 11 grand out of the last guy to return his passport to him and allow him to leave the country. This money is supposed to go to a Brazilian "charity". How much you wanna bet that this "charity" includes the judge's wallet and a couple of his buddies.
Jesus, people! Wake up already!
A 3wood. Learn to hit it well and until then don't worry about using it while you play.
Or a 60* wedge. It's not about full swing distances, but rather utility around the green.
Seems to me a 2-iron would too closely match your 3 hybrid.
For me at this point its a resounding yes. Over the course of the last year and a half I lost 130 pounds (lost it before the end of last year), and learned how to swing with the added flexibility losing that weight affords.
The result has been a massive jump in distance, I've gone from hitting 140 yard 7 irons to 175 yard 7 irons. Same pretty much all through my bag, though at times it seems like I'm losing distance on my driver (most likely a side effect of poor contact...may also benefit a little from a fitting). Today I hit a 215 yard 4 iron into a par 5....last year that would have been a 3 wood while I said a little prayer that it would roll up.
I started last golfing again regularly for the first time in about 8 years last year and when the year started a 48 was an average day with something below 45 heavenly. Now a 48 feels like the world is ending and anything higher than a 41 feels like I'm leaving strokes out there (possibly due to my own overestimation of my abilities). I've gone from just wanting to consistently break 90 to hoping I can consistently break 80 (did it for the first time Sunday and I've been skirting around 80-82 for most of the summer).
