On a similar vein as the "How Many States" query, how many countries?  Other than the USA and Canada, I have only been to Ireland and the UK (Scotland).  Some golfers who have visited the Caribbean or traveled through Europe might have some impressive numbers.

Get real, bk. Canada is an independent country, with its own rich golf tradition. You need to count them separately. Your phrasing doesn't do much US-Canadian relations. :beer:

To show your repentence, buy the next Canadian you meet a Molson.

------------------------

Besides USA, I have played golf in Japan (Okinawa, about 30 years ahead of Normdamarine); Taiwan; Germany, and Italy. (I've also played in Sicily, whose locals would count it as an honorary separate country.)

I've visited Canada, but haven't played golf there - yet.

So you know someone who played in another country and she brought you a shirt.  Well, I guess that counts..... :-P

U.S., Japan, Argentina, Mexico, Spain

Was supposed to play Pete Dye's Black Pearl course in Honduras when we pulled in on a cruise a couple of years back......but it turned out that I was the ONLY ONE ON THE ENTIRE FREAKING BOAT that wanted to play golf, so they canceled the excursion.  I could have piled into a cab and played on my own, but decided it was just too much trouble.  I'll bet they had 1,000 people that went to swim with the stinkin' dolphins, but couldn't come up with one more golfer on that damn barge!  Yeah.....I'm still pissed. :pound:

Beer me!!! Other than the U.S. and Canada, none. UK would be great someday, and anywhere in the Carribbean 'cause that'd mean I was on vacation!!!:-D

Just a 'point of information' but Molson, and Labatt for that matter, are absolute piss. When you come to Canada do yourself a favour and explore our micro-brewery offerings. I highly recommend McAuslin's beer, all they do are ales and they do it very, very well!

The Budweiser of Canada. The equivalent of Fosters in Australia. Beer for people who don't really like beer...... ;-)

    • Copy & Pasting my own answer on a similar thread here.... I agree about borrowing or grabbing a CHEAP bag of random clubs at a garage sale to start with but when you're ready to invest a little dough into your own set, there are really three ways to do it... 1 - Get a cheap beginner set from Golfsmith or Dick's (or other online source). Advantages (if you go instore) are you get to see/swing them first, some assistance with selection, a good matched set to start learning the game with even if they are not fitted. I recently spent $169 on a set of Lynx Tigress clubs from Golfsmith for my wife...same set is currently listed on their site for $299. They are actually quite well made/designed and will likely be all she ever needs for her game. Dick's also had a Top Flite set in the same price range...she liked the color of the Lynx set better. ;) 2 - Roll the dice with an online "Clone" company like Giga, Diamond Tour, Pine Meadow, Hireko Golf, etc...You don't get to swing them first but you can use their online fitting systems to customize size/shaft/grip options a little more than just the standard options in a box. I used to have a Pine Meadow driver that I could hit ever bit as far as my brother-in-laws latest greatest. This is a good article about clone clubs http://planet-golf.com/what-are-clone-golf-clubs/ 3 - Used brand name stuff, one man's trash is literally my treasure. Try EBay, Club Finders (or other like websites) and buy a used set of matched irons of proper size/flex (used Ping Eye 2 iron sets go for $90-125 all day) and then piece together your other clubs individually. Again, you won't get to swing them first and you could get burned on a deal along the way...but if you take your time and shop smart, you can assemble a nice bag without breaking the bank this way too. I'm lucky here in Dallas to have a PGA store, a Golfsmith, a dozen Dick's Sports, and also Club Finders Golf (used golf specialist) all within 20 minutes of my house so when I started building a new bag I decided to take the #3 route...but I am considering finishing it off with a couple of new clone wedges rather than going with older/used wedges. Good luck whatever you decide.

    • Great time! Laughs, good conversation and three new good people that I met. Hacker James is a fun character and his daughter is also. She has good setup form and with more playing and practice she can really improve. She hit a few good long drives, out driving her father from the same tees. Hacker James was lagging very well, but nothing fell for him, but he took it like the golfer that he is. Shindig is a great guy and fun to play with and talk with. His golf game is impressive. Long drives, good short game and putter. He's pretty consistent. Consistently out drove me. Shindig was using Game Golf, I'm looking forward to seeing the results. It didn't seem to bother his game.   I got up at 3:00 am, left home around 4, got to the course about 6:30 from Palm Desert. I liked the course. it has a great practice area, broken up into the driving range and different short game areas. The layout of the course was good as well as the fairways and greens. I didn't like some of the sand bunkers with very little sand, but overall it's a good course to play. The employees were friendly as well.   I shot 97, 48 on the front, 49 on the back. I putted so badly.  I missed so many putts within 5 feet. I drove the ball well, not too many out of the fairway, and they were still playable. I got in the sand and out pretty good most of the time, but I missed one short putt after another, it was killing me or better yet I was killing myself. My lagging was hit and miss as well. When I got home I took five putters to the putting green and selected another putter for my next round.  I did hit one of those shots that make you say " Oh yea". It was a 5-wood from the fairway, oh so sweet.  Looking forward to the next outing and meeting other Sand Trap members.    
    • I've always been at best average at speed events like sprinting.  But when I hit the driver well it goes 250 to 260 yards.  I gained maybe 30 to 40 yards this year and I'll turn 59 this December.  I'm 5'11", 150 lbs.  I've had leukemia, high dosage chemo and a bone marrow transplant, 5 years ago.  I'm definately not an example of great health. Most 42 year old men should be able to hit it further than 180 yards. Yes, technic and just as important... swing fast.  You should post a swing video in the member swing section of this forum to get tips from some experts around here.
    • Being in Scotland it's the opposite to your situation as in flooded greens.  I've went into pro shop and been given a free second game voucher / ticket a few times over the years.  I don't see it as an issue and as long as your respectful to the staff it's never been an issue with no hard feelings from either party.
