Gotta love an optimist who sees the 18 holes as half full, not half empty.

Yeah, he's great for that. Very recently, after I got upset with a bad shot, he turns to me and says, "You putt like Brad Faxon, so you can't expect expect to strike it like Nick Price" (he's in his forties, so these are his reference points from watching golf growing up, lol).

Sheesh... you'd have a 2 handicap if you didn't have those multiple shanks.  Doctor, heal thyself.  Have you ever thought about hybrids, not irons (with those damn hosels)?  Do they make a hybrid gap wedge???  And Vinsk, have you ever shanked a putt... this I gotta hear..

Lol. Yeah well I’ve succumbed to just living with them. I’d rather quit than use all hybrids. Just can’t do it. If I have to hit a long putt…like 50+ feet….yeah, yeah I’m Sure I could shank a putt. 
 

Imagine if someone completely covered your club head with lead tape into a ball. Then took all the markings off the grip. Then at the top of your back swing the lead tape comes off and you’re expected to hit the ball squarely. That’s how much feel I have for the club head. Be it a short chip or a full swing. Zero natural talent.

    • As a Srixon staffer, I mainly use the z star xv. However, the -prov1x is a really good ball for my game. If I find other balls, I give them away to friends. 
    • Day 12, working on short game. Trying to be less wrist hinge-y. It’s a bit better. Putting is a mess. 
    • I can see both sides of this.  Are there enough Seniors (and enough prize money) that you could do a CTP for them, and a separate one for the younger guys?
    • Day 93: Played a quick 9 before heading off on vacation for a few days. Heavy fog, so just made easy swings trying to keep the ball "findable". Ended up shooting 3 over for 9, so nice way to start my vacation.
    • I'm probably an outlier, but I have so many brand new balls in boxes from a variety of companies, there's no way I could be devoted to one brand. Presents, free sleeve samples handed out at big box stores, boxes of balls won at various company golf outings, etc. Plus, I'm not adverse to reusing found balls as long as they're in decent condition. Also, when my swing goes haywire, as it has recently, I hate staring down at a brand now Pro V1. All I see at that moment is a five-dollar bill with the real potential to go sailing off into the woods so that's usually when the found balls get put on the tee.
