  1. Compared to what @woodzie264? 6 months - It looks pretty damn good to me. Nice work. That is not an easy fix...actually nothing about changing your swing is easy. Well done.

  2. Hello and welcome back to TST! All good advice so far. But having an open mind doesn’t really help with narrowing the field..lol. First, you can’t go wrong with Mizuno. Mizuno has made some amazing irons since 1999. So have all the other big brands. I’m sure you have a few specifics you’d like to have such as top line thick or thin, cavity back/MB, appearance and of course feel. You could always start with hitting the last three years of Mizuno irons and see how it goes. Have you looked at irons as far as Super Game Improvement, Game Improvement, Player’s distance and Player’s? Based o

  3. STOP BITCHING about how far guys hit the ball! If I have to hear one more golf commentator complain about how far these guys hit the golf ball I'm going to lose my mind! According to the data below the average tournament winner has improved by 5 strokes since 1960. STOP BITCHING about how far guys hit the ball! If you want to get those 5 strokes back, make the rough rougher. Or make the fairway rougher. In the 60's the rolled the greens before every tournament. I watched a thing about them getting Winged Foot ready for the US Open, they rolled the greens more than a do

  4. If your marriage can survive you publicly humiliating your wife by going on a walk while holding a golf club to work on your grip and then posting it on the internet, it can survive one round of golf.

  5. I figured out why I was driving the ball so wall last week. I know most of you will think I'm crazy, but it had to be the pants. Every time I wear that pair of pants on the golf course, I drive the ball great. Now I need to figure out which shirt helps my iron shots. Socks might be the key to short game and underwear the key to putting. I think I am on to something here...

  6. I play fine with my 4 years old clubs - I don’t think expensive clubs/clothes would help with my game, so no thanks! I do have 3 Scotty already, no need for more either...I can, however, use a new car...so...😉 Here’s my pretty Scotty...

  7. Both me and my dad were fit for new irons and it was an eye opening experience for me. Prior to being fit I did not realize how much there is to gain (or lose) from changing shaft flex, shaft weight, swing weight, club head weight, club height center of gravity.... What ended up being a perfect fit for me was on the totally opposite end of the spectrum from what worked for my dad. I loved the look of the Mizuno's that he ended up with, but for whatever reason with my swing they just didn't feel right or perform as well as others for me. My advice would be to go into it with an open mind.

  8. Okay so I played 9 holes at a local muni the other day. It is only a 9-hole course, but it is full sized 9. The groups in front of us look like this. There was me and 2 other guys, and we were walking. In front of us there was a young couple in a cart. In front of them another couple in a cart. In front of them 2 guys (each with his own cart.) In front of them 4 senior citizen ladies, all walking. To no one’s surprise, the course is getting backed up. Or course everyone assumes the 4 senior citizen ladies are the cause of all the woes. BUT NO. It turns out the 2 dudes each with

  9. A. You can definitely handle it, Stranz courses tend to be a whole lot easier than they look 2. Playing with V is a pretty amazing experience, not to mention playing with Erik.

  10. It’s a dumb debate. Dialing back the ball is stupid. Architects can find other ways to make a course challenging other than length. The lowest round of 58 was done by a short hitter ( Furyk). BD isn’t destroying the game. Short knockers are still making it out there.

  11. Did you mean to say "That 3 bucks they are playing for is much more important to them than it is to their wives"? Your way is funnier, however.

  12. This is excellent advise from @chicub15. When I bought new clubs my clubs were about 8 years old. I'll echo exactly what chicub15 stated, go in with no expectations and let the numbers tell you which clubs to buy.

  13. The new Corica South course is pretty nice too. In the same general area as Monarch Bay.

  14. The first one will be $215 today and tomorrow and the other one is the $175 one. I recommend getting one of those two.

  15. I'm on the fence about your general point for reasons related to why I think two of these are bad comparisons. All players have gotten bigger and faster in football. It's not just offense or defense. And they have in fact changed the rules both just to generally increase scoring but also to deal with the consequences of players being way bigger and faster and stronger. Track is just obviously a bad comparison. Nothing changes about the sport when people run faster. They just finish the race faster. I think tennis is the best comparison. People don't complain in tennis because while t

  18. What are you hoping to find out? They are not collectors items, and likely never will be. If you want to use them, you should strongly consider changing the shafts. I find in older sets the shafts tend to lose their punch. Lofts are likely not comparable to today's sets also.

  19. Almost all greens you'll play on in the Bay Area are the notorious weed, Poa Annua. Even if a course plants bentgrass or some new fancy hybrid it is eventual that Poa will take its place. In my opinion Poa is not ideal, especially when hot and getting a ton of play. However, if a course is careful about it and aerates it and gives it enough water it can be fine.

  21. The Hybrib 2.0 logged another season in 2020. I did a poor job of cleaning the tool and the sandy greens resulted in it jamming open. A good cleaning and a bit of lubrication got it back to proper functioning. Now a story. I am not a big souvenir collector but on my trip to Scotland in 2013, I got two ball markers from the Old Course, a poker chip and a metal marker. I used the poker chip a lot for when I was far from the hole. Eventually the Old Course markings wore off and then one day I lost it. No problem, the metal one went into action. Then one day the metal Old Course marker

  22. Hey Greg, great things are working out well for you. My brother went though a triple bypass and only because he was in such good shape, think he was slower getting to a full swing because he was worried about damage to his scar lol. He was 60ish and still fit at 75, now I outdrive him lol. I had a gallbladder removed 13 months ago that went badly, I’m about 90% recovered after a year and playing my first 9 holes in 14 months. Just keep moving and improving slowly does it... take care

    • I prefer to drive, and most of my playing partners prefer to ride so it works out. When I'm driving I'm not going to be on my phone and am less likely to have my thoughts wander and I find it easier for me to stay focused on my next shot. I'm sure if I actually kept track there is probably no difference in my actual score whether I'm driving or riding, just my personal preference.
    • I'd rather drive, just because I like putting the cart/my bag quite close to my golf ball and when others drive they usually park much further away. It's honestly good etiquette that people do this, I just like having everything right next to my ball so I can range, grab a club, and be in position already for the start of my routine without any extra walking. Usually my cart or bag is only around 3 feet away from the ball, on the right hand side. You can actually see the shadow of the golf cart in my profile picture from the Newport Cup, just barely cropped out. Here's the original showing where I like to park a cart, give or take a foot closer or further. When walking I just stand next to the ball and set the bag down, so it ends up closer than that.
    • That means it’s working! (Being sarcastic.) Glad we’re seeing more people get their vaccines.
    • Got my 1st Pfizer shot yesterday. Ten minutes after the shot, I started feeling some fuzziness from my neck to my face. It lasted about 30 mins. Injection site started getting sore about 10 hours afterwards. Still sore after 24hrs. I have also developed a rash since last night and they are not going away. Otherwise no other reaction/side effects.
    • I prefer to drive, with the understanding that there are times when its best for me to walk and let the other player drive.
