  1. Yes, a 9 wood. Picked up a new TM M6 9 wood on a whim, and at a price I couldn't say no to. I have been hitting it much more consistently than my 4 hybrid or my 4 iron. Much steeper angle of descent, this club does a much better job of holding greens at that 180-190 yard range that was always difficult to get any bite on in my advancing years. And I got rid of that darn hybrid hook. I can take the ribbing from guys asking if I want to move up to the ladies tees. They shut up when they see the results.

  4. Hey, he's entitled to his opinion. I've never objected to anyone saying they vote for Jack. I only object when they start trying to justify their opinion with the kind of non-factual nonsense that is contained in the thousands of messages in this thread. Or this latest nonsense of DiMarco somehow "gifting" the Masters to Tiger. It's like saying Rocco 'gifted' the 2008 US Open to Tiger by driving it into a bunker on the 91st hole. But I respect his right to his opinion, even though I think it is unsupported by the facts. Not everyone has dived into the topic as deeply as we have in this

  5. My previous driver was a Callaway xr16, which was a very good driver for me. Whenever I tried adjusting to the draw position for some reason my drives went horrible. I would pull hook drives, have problems getting elevation on my drive, maybe it was all in my head or whatever but I just couldn't hit my driver in the draw bias setting. When I put it back into the neutral setting everything was great. My new Maverick Max driver I initially put it in the neutral setting and have never changed it out of that because of past experience, and it works so well for me as is. If I have driving issues I

  6. Correct. They are all basically set to 40 psi. Only times they aren't are with the old Taylormade wrenches from the cylinder movable weight days. Those were set to 30. They would still work I would guess without issues. However the 40s did cause issues with the cylinder weights back then.

  7. Someone find footage of every major Jack won to analyze the putts his competitors made… Come on…this is silly. Chris didn’t play well enough to win, but one more putt was all he needed, or one missed by Tiger. And he played four under, while Tiger played one under. It was very close and even went to a playoff. Tiger wasn’t handed anything. Maybe Chris mishit a few putts, but every golfer do, Tiger included. It’s not like Chris wanted to lose.

  8. I’m lucky to have hillsides and rough to practice with…..and they’re on the far right side of the range so I’m good.😃🥴

  9. For me it depends on the depth of the rough. But in general my concern is a poorly struck iron out of the rough will be a disaster for me whereas a hybrid will still move the ball even if just a ground burner.

  10. Well I had said that I would get back to you guys after I goofed around with the 54° and 58° on my short game shots (I only have my old Tommy Armour V-31 sand wedge as a 56° test). My experience was that I don’t know that I will ALWAYS need two speciality wedges for short game shots, but the 58° does come in handy from uneven shittier lies, the 56° has decent results from said lies, so the vote is not in yet... I feel the 50-90 yard shots are easier to control with the 56° (my 54° is 95-105 yards, and 58° 75-85 but I don’t like to hit them full). On the full swing motion wedge shots

  11. I actually am toying with playing with a 7- and 9-wood in place of my 3 and 4 hybrids not liking how hybrids hook, my 9 wood would have to be a non-Srixon/Cleveland because I’m not paying XXIO money for a 9-wood. Hey, the 9-wood might be the modern equivalent, of the Ray Floyd 5-wood at the 1976 Masters, he actually took the 2-iron out and left the 1-iron in when he put the 5-wood in play in the 1976 Masters. The 9-wood might be my answer to question of the long par-three and long par-four second shot I have.

  12. I don't have any new video to share but I have experienced some changes physically and with my golf swing that I have to think are going to be beneficial over the long haul. First I dropped almost 50lbs from a high of 223 I was able to get as low as 172 and bounced back up to 179 but I really would like to shed about 15 more to get somewhere in the 160s. Secondly I have noticed something of a habit a bad one at that seems to have gone away. I think since I have decided to throttle down a bit on my swing speed since I'm getting older I noticed I'm not letting go of the club at the top since the

  13. This was in the news and I'm surprised nobody posted about it. So, here goes… ‘Thank you for ending our careers': Heavy rain leads to NCAA controversy After three days of rain prevented an NCAA Division I Women's regional tournament from commencing, the event was canceled Wednesday. NCAA cancels Baton Rouge women’s golf regional due to rain despite admitting course “playable” Baton Rouge has been hammered by rain this week, with seven inches falling on the University Club golf course, one of the NCAA Women’s Golf Regional sites.

  15. Just watched a bit of 2005, and DeMarco talked about how he just misread some of the birdie putts. Now, its hard to say he should have made putts when you misread them. If you read it perfectly, then mishit the putt or misjudge the distance then maybe. When you hit your line, hit your speed, you can't really complain about missing a putt. He did have some good looks and didn't make them, but still made enough birdies to get into a playoff. So, again, I don't think he crumbled.

  16. Well maybe the 2005 Masters, a little... he didn’t get handed a single one of the four majors in the Tiger Slam... Bob May played probably the best golf of his life that week... and Tiger had to shoot 31 on the back on Sunday to get into the playoff, (as did Bob May).

  17. I stopped watching the video as soon as I found out there was a link and went to do the puzzle, Figured it out in about 14 minutes, finished in 18:22. I used to be pretty good at Sudoku

    • Day 3: COVID-19 day 6 and 7 drills again. Then downswing priority piece work with 7-iron, not much, just 10 balls. 
    • Day 69, August 2, 2021 More work on shortening my backswing. I don’t want to even get to hands to right shoulder… at least feeling like that.
    • I'm sure if you look at about two years ago on this site, I mentioned somewhere that after having my first ever sub-80 round (a nice 77 in a tournament!), I failed to break 90 for I think two months.  These things happen. Can't hit an iron?  What's the longest swing you can make with your PW and hit a good result?  If the answer is a chip, go hit some chips and, after some good ones, expand into pitches.  Similar with pitches into 3/4 shots, etc.   This is very likely something you can work out by going back to what you do well.  
    • First range session after another productive session with @iacas.  Working on getting my weight forward and also feel like my front forearm is turning to close the clubface.  Did work with my 6I, Driver, 3W, and 4H and hit all clubs really well with ball flights that overall I wasn't unhappy with.  Playing tomorrow and Wednesday so we'll see how we do.
