First time getting in a full round since November and...

1 post in this topic

Since getting into college this year I have hardly had any time/money to play any golf at all.  I think i've played 5 total time since august and none since Novemeber, due to not having much time to get in a full round, and not having the money to pay 10 dollars for a large bucket at the local range (sheesh) so my expectations heading into this round were non-existant pretty much, I went to the range and hit the ball decently after a while, and thought that I'd at least be able to shoot around an 80 and i'd be happy with that.  Then I proceeded to shoot a 68! One shot away from a career low (even though i had back to back bogeys on 15 and 16 ) I couldn't believe it my timing was as good as its ever been in a round, and if it were not for two three puts and a chunked pitch shot I could have really put together a really good round.  I can't believe I played so well, maybe it was because I played smart and didn't try to do too much but if anyone would have told me I'd go out and shoot a 68 I would have laughed at them.  Anyone else have such a good round after a long layoff? Cause this was honestly the most shocking round of golf I ever played.

    • Damn i thought i might be sliding my upper body forward because of the near shanks   i'll try and get someone to video my on course on Sunday if i cant get down the range tomorrow but will try tomorrow, im guessing face on would be best?
    • I love saving $$ on clubs and I think I do a good job of it - but a full set of anything decent for $300 is a tall order!  In my opinion, though, if you're playing with a "starter" set and you got them for $180 . .. new clubs are your highest priority - even more so than lessons.  Just my opinion, of course, but you need some reasonable clubs.   If I were going to put together the cheapest bag I could - I would definitely go with used clubs.  I would definitely not have 14 clubs . .and I'd still spend slightly more than 300.  I'd definitely go with a used set of irons.  Something fairly decent, less than 10 years old . .should cost me right around 300.  That still leaves me needing a putter, wedges, woods, etc.  Personally . .I'd keep whatever putter you currently have . .that will save a good hundred bucks or so.  I've been using the same putter since I was 12 . .love it.  For wedges . .I'd just get one . .to save $$.  Get a 56 degree sand wedge with a decent amount of bounce.  IE - truly a "sand" wedge.  For woods . .I'd either go with just a 3W . . or, as I currently have, a driver and a 4W.  You can get a decent used driver for under 100.  So for me - I'm thinking the best I could do for a "full" (full-ish) set of clubs would be right around 425-450 . .and that's IF I don't buy a putter.  But those clubs would be functionally as good as just about anything out there and I  would expect to enjoy them fully for 5+ years . .at least.    Good luck!  
    • I feel like the quoted section is similar to what they say about a lot of balls. And it doesn't take much scrolling on their site to get to reviews done in 2013 and 2012…? Reviews on GolfWRX are mixed (it made their front page). One guy doing a float test said they were more inconsistent than other balls (the ball fell to the same position far more quickly than other balls). I've seen little to dissuade me of the idea that they're a "good" but not "great" ball which, for a buck and a quarter and a bogey golfer, is a great thing. I'll tell some buddies about them. P.S. The nearest Costco to me is 90 miles away.

      If there are multiple scores of the same I thought the position for the next round was decided on their ranking - so a player ranked number 4 in the world would be placed higher than a player of 5 or worse.
    • I have the 2014 model. Great little 13" laptop. Runs really well. 16 GB, 512 GB. I'll play with @saevel25's briefly when he shows up next.
