  2. Short answer is yes you can. I have a driver shaft in my 2 hybrid and love it.
  3. Just use the app if you have a smart phone. It has worked flawlessly for me
  4. Would you not be better off getting new 712s with the PX shafts and selling you current set. Especially if they are almost new. Might actually come out cheaper. Just a thought
  5. So I am thinking of getting new irons since I got a bonus. I know Fleabay and big box stores have cheaper prices than retail, but what about buying through a private club? I want to avoid possible counterfeits and I need them customized so Fleabay is not an option. Anyone have experience with that? What is the discount, assuming there is one. Is every club maker different or is there a standard. I am thinking of buying Titleist AP1 or AP2s. Thanks
  6. From what I understand the studio headcovers are cheaper. Therefore the seller (stores or personals) give you the cheaper one. If you want the "nicer" one you have to buy it separately. If I bought mine in a store, I would demand that I get the correct headcover from Scotty.
  7. In Golf for Dummies (it was a gift, and yes I read it) McCord hits on the point of muscle tension in the mouth and face. His drill. Hit balls with a potato chip in between your lips and dont break it. Pretty simple but seems to have stuck with me... I have not thought about it in years, yet it came to me while reading this thread.
  8. I have done this once... never again. It is a serious PITA. Best way to do it IMO is to be three holes ahead and stand at the tee box. That is the best view, then you can go a hole or two up and head out to about the landing area on the fairway ropes. I tend to get on the right side as that is where most pros miss, but Tiger has been fighting the lefties so left might be your best bet. Avoid the Par 3's period. They are normally pretty deep for any golfer, Tiger will be stupid. Enjoy, it is fun fighting the crowds... all to see one of the greatest to ever play
  9. I have two (2) Practice Round tickets for Wednesday 9/26 for sale. I have them in hand and can ship anywhere in the CONUS. $75.00 obo
  10. I love my tours with no socks as well. It can suck if you end up in a bunker though. Odor eaters spray after every round/practice session and cedar balls in the toes when storing and it is all good. As mentioned the stealth's are not condusive to no socks though. Although they are by far my favorite TRUE
  11. Not trying to highjack, but this sort of piggybacks on the OP. I played in my first Match Play event last weekend and wanted you guys opinion on a couple of things. First, do you prepare any differently for a Match Play tourney versus a stroke play one? Also do you play your opponent or still try and play the course and let the "cards fall where they may?" I figure that playing it safe when the opponent is in the water or something is pretty standard, but humor me.
  12. Yeah, it is pretty nuts. I watched Kevin Na and Ben Crane (same group) on Friday (i think) at The Masters play a hole. Kevin was short of a greenside bunker and short sided himself so he had to hit a almost perfect shot to stop it close to the hole. It felt like 5 minutes (i am sure it was not but it seemed like it). And to follow that, Ben was in the greenside bunker and took forever to hit as well. It was painful to watch
  13. You are going to get a ton of different view on this but my favorite shoe is the TRUE Linkswear Stealth. I have a couple of pairs of the TRUE Tours and they are nice, but the Stealth is just better. Hard to describe... I got them on Tuesday and walked 18 yesterday with no issues what so ever. Not sure if it is the leather insole or the newly designed out-sole, but man they sure are nice.
  14. Luke Donald -8 Ben Crane -8 Sang Moon Bae -8
  15. And little did you know that was one small step for man....
  16. I believe him but I know from experience at my home club, that most folks have good intentions but the club ends up in the trunk or a closet. If I chose to move it to the exiting spot of the green I made an effort. If someone comes back looking for it and asks me if I saw it, I can tell them where I moved it. At least that narrows down the culprits in case of some one wanting to swipe it.
  17. This happens too often in my opinion. Everyone thinks that they will find the owner or return it to the pro shop and they forget and it goes home "never to be seen again." I leave it on the green closest to the exiting spot. That way it is easily seen by everyone including the person who lost it. The only issue is the folks coming up behind me could possible hit it, but the chance of such are nil.
  18. Hole 13 of my home course is a par 5 with the cart path running down the right side. With my drive safely in the fairway, I take out a 4H to safely lay up to 80 yard so I can approach the elevated green with a full 56*. I block my 4H and it skims a tree on the right just enough to allow the ball to catch the path twice and finally the curb which kicks it left on to the front of the green. That would equate to a 260yd (uphill) 4H For what it is worth... I still 3 putt for a par.
  19. MDL, as others have said. You post is pretty spot on other than walking off the green. Most of the guys I play with are fairly quick players like me, but no matter how slow some randoms might be, there is no reason to be rude and walk off the green. Obviously I don't know you and you are more than likely a good dude, but walking off the green in my group would get you called a pompus a$$ guaranteed. Just sayin
  20. Wow... I should not have read this... it is far to early for all this knowledge. Maybe I should just start online lessons and let the "boys" tell me what do do...
  21. I gotta think Stacy Lewis is the Americans best chance... I am a Paula fan, but she still is having putting issues on top of the swing change.
  22. What happened with the cups on a couple of holes that Phil is pissed about? I just missed them talking about it
  23. 76-90% (I've improved quite a bit) but I am more than likely being to critical of myself. I started the playing again after a 3 year layoff in March of 2011. I was at a 26.8 handicap. I am now a 17 and trending low, so I am sure that I am much better, but with all the work that is going into it, I hoped I would be farther along. Is a golfer ever really happy with their game ????
