Thanks a lot, comrades.  It's great being able to  shoot my age without breaking 60. :-)

I turned 70 today. Oh, joy! I shot the best nine of my 69 year old life yesterday with only 5 over. I thought I had gone to golf heaven. Particularly when I chipped a 4 yarder to a 15 foot pin for a birdie. I hit some great shots. None of them were tour quality - obviously, but for me they were pretty dang good. Having to walk further between shots was a novel concept and I found I kind of liked it. Only 9 holes because we're experiencing record temps here in the PNW and I wanted off the course before my balls melted - so to speak.

My cart odometer rolled over to 200 miles as well, so another milestone in a life filled with milestones. I'm pretty sure my wife was getting a bit tired of hearing, yesterday, that that was the last BBQ'd chicken I would eat as a 69 year old and that was the last soak I'd have in the hot tub as a 69 year old, etc, etc... Anyway, I hope to see that odometer roll over to 500 and my score drop to 5 under before I hit 80!

    • Welcome to The Sand Trap!   You may be a while waiting for a response to this one, the last post here is almost 11 years old.  But take a look around, and chime in to whichever threads interest you.
    • what app are you all using to track your golf stats. GIR & scrambling etc.? 
    • I suppose it depends on the length of the golf course.  I would say somewhere between a 7 and PW.  Personally I would like a PW because that is one of the favourite clubs in my bag and is useful enough to get you out of must situations onto the fairway.  If you are intending to use it to reach a green, then a longer club may well be required.  Definitely don't go something as long as a 5 iron, unless the course is such that you have no rough to speak off, in which case a 5 iron would be useful as punch out type of club to keep it low
    • Day 114 (7/29/21) -  Practice green - Worked on chipping with my 58* and 6H to different holes and from different lies, then putting out. Then played 5-holes of chip and putt, scoring a 13.  When putting, I focused on the hole, rather than the ball.  Range - Hit a small bucket. With wedges, hybrids and fairway woods I focused making sure the low point of my swing was in front of the ball. For driver, I focused on swinging smoothly and making sure the low point was behind the ball. The 2-3 best drives I hit today, bar far, were using the Distanza shaft in my G400.  
    • A group of us are playing a week in Arizona next month, and we are permitting ourselves to carry and use a 15th "desert" club for hitting out of rocks, dirt and the many less-than-club-friendly places our golf balls will find themselves. (I know that scratched clubs don't really affect performance).  What's the best desert club?  5 iron? 8 iron? Mark <>
