  1. Mabye a putter? Never seen anything like that.
  2. which club is more difficult for you?

    3 wood off the turf, and lob wedge. I have never hit a mediocre shot with a lob wedge. It's either good, or terrible. The 3wood is good off the tee, but the 5wood is my choice off the turf.
  3. What are you listening to?

    Just signed up for Tidal. Listening to Van Morrison, Mark Knopfler, Gregg Allman, Robert Plant, Marty Stuart. I may never buy a CD.
  4. Green aeration

    We used to punch twice in the spring. Once early spring, and then late spring. We would usually use larger plugs in the early one. We always top dressed and rolled the greens. The only reason I could see to leave the holes open would be if the greens were holding a lot of water, and they were trying to dry them a bit. That being said, they shouldn't leave them open more than a few days. I don't know where you are located, but, depending on the temps, they might be slow to recover this time of year. It is a bit late here in NC.
  5. My brother didn't play, but he said Kenmare looked good.
  6. Wearing a Wedding Ring while Playing

    I feel weird if my ring is off.
  7. Raleigh NC Golf

    Treyburn is part of the McConnell golf network. Raleigh Country Club is also owned by McConnell Golf. It is the last course Ross built. Try to use whatever connection you used to play Treyburn to get you on RCC. It is a really fun course, and I wouldn't be surprised if you like it better then Treyburn.
  8. When does the PGA Tour season start for you?

    I'll probably watch some of all the tournaments, but I really start paying attention during the Florida swing.
  9. This might be a real longshot, but are there any military bases in your area? I've seen quite a bit on TV about Wounded Warriors learning to golf. Mabye a golf pro that teaches those guys could help you, or could give you some advice as to another pro that could help. The pro should be able to help you with equipment, as well.
  10. Directed Force Putters

    Regardless of the science, a putter has to look good to me. Not sure I could use a DF putter. I like the looks of the Edel putters. If I ever try a custom putter it would probably be an Edel, but the closest fitter is about two hours away.
  11. Directed Force Putters

    I really don't care about the science, I just care if it works. Are these putters available at any retail golf stores? I'd love to see one in person.
  12. Srixon makes irons?

    Winston Salem only carries balls. The other stores are at least 1.5 hours away.
  13. Practicing Golf - I Get Bored Easily

    I play. I don't practice very often. I am just a bit below a four, and very comfortable with my ability. I don't play tournaments, and only play for enjoyment and exercise. I'm 63, and my "working at it" days are done. If things start going sideways,I will take an occasional lesson, but a nice enjoyable walk with my friends is much more important to me than a score.
  14. Srixon makes irons?

    Their irons look good, but I don't know any stores near me that stock them.
  15. Club preference

    I picked up a used Scotty Cameron Circa 62 #6. It is the best feeling putter I have ever owned. I'm not saying that there are not other good putters out there, but I have been playing since the late 60s, and this one is the best I've owned..
