  1. If you're shooting in the low 80s but not breaking through to the 70s, here's something you might try. Play a few rounds from the most forward tees. Playing a short course should let you break 80 easily, and now you have that psychological monkey off your back. Your conscious mind knows that you took a shortcut to breaking 80, but your subconscious mind doesn't know that. It only knows you broke 80. Now go back to your regular tees and just play golf. With the pressure off, you should break 80 from there in no time.
  2. Was 34° when I got to the course and warmed up to a toasty 37° but the time I finished walking 18 today. When I called the resort they told me the course was closed. I asked them why, and was told the golf carts and flags had all been put away for the winter. Told them I was walking and didn't care about the pins, so they let me play. It's rifle season (deer) up here right now and was concerned about all the overzealous yahoos in the state land surrounding the course, so I wore some blaze orange. By about the 12th hole, I started wondering if a stray bullet would be less painful than the level of golf I was playing. I'd probably welcome the relief that death might bring. In all seriousness, there are some advantages to playing this time of the year.... As beautiful as the scenery was today, the empty fairways were better. I even took video of a bald eagle flying over the last hole. A thought soon crossed my mind... Is this a sign? How cool would that be! On the last hole, of the last round of 2016, maybe I'll shoot my first... ...then I pulled my tee shot into the creek (sigh). Well, there's always next year... C'MON SPRING!!
  3. What are these "snakes" you speak of? (Feeling smug as I live in one of the two countries in the world (excluding Antarctica) that have none.)
  4. Usually the stiffer the shaft creates less dispersion. It also may lead to less distance although some have found more due to straighter shots. As far as changing irons I really don't think players irons will make you a better player only practice and lessons will do that.
