I'll never understand this. My dad is the same way - despises the Yankees and Giants way more than he likes the Dodgers.
Of course, I don't even understand caring enough about a team to worry about what happens more than about 3 seconds after any game ends. I enjoy watching games sometimes and enjoy seeing my teams do well (which never happens) but just don't care about any of it once the games are over.
Good point on that partial bag game. I've done that myself. I have also played short irons off the tee, then played longer fairway clubs to the pin. Just to change things up.
Some of my more satisfying memories have been my recovery shots, after a poor shot. The old "how the hell do I get out of this mess" scenario. How Igot myself in the mess was of no importance. So, if I had a better game, I wouldn't have some of those memories.
I don't get burnt out in the mental sense, but there have been times where I have been physically tired from too much play. Usually not playing for 2-3 days cures that issue.
With the weather cooling off, while heading into fall, I will be playing quite a bit. Need to make up for lost time the past couple of months.
My wedges run 46 (P), 52, 56, and 60. The 52 and 60 have 8 degrees bounce, the 56 has 12, I think. On full shots, I have about 10 yard gaps. For bunker play I much prefer the 56, with its higher bounce, to either of the others. I very seldom try to hit high floaters with either the 52 or 56, that's more for full shots and lower-flighted pitches and chips. High pitches and lops I'll use the 60, I can open the face. That's just my approach. My conclusion, though, is that a 56-12 is not necessarily a bod companion to a 52-08 gap wedge, it seems to work for me.
