@DrvFrShow - thanks, I appreciate your reply. We are joining a golf club, so play/practice/lessons are all 'mandatory' so to speak as we want to get the most out of the membership. Over the years, I've had periods where I took lessons but I was never able to play/practice consistently afterwards, or eventually work/life intervened. Our driving range is closed for practice currently also. Good information on the Cobra F9s. Our stores are open, so I will take a look when I am able to head over there.
@uitar9 - congratulations on getting to the 18 HCP, I would be very happy with that level! Also, I appreciate hearing about your experience with the fitting.
The LPGA is going to allow the option of a player playing without a caddie:
No caddies? Now an option for LPGA players
Players will be allowed to carry their own bags for the rest of the 2020 season, if they so choose.
LPGA caddie: 'Quite shocked' when caddie option announced; fearful for future
With LPGA caddies optional for the rest of the year, how many players will actually choose to carry their own bags? One caddie believes the option will be abused.
I hadn’t quite thought about it, but it never occurred to me that a caddie was “required,” that playing without a caddie would require permission or exemption from the LPGA. If so, I’m assuming that the PGA Tour has a similar requirement.
