  1. So on Monday, I played two matches. On the front, I went up 3 through 4, but lost on the ninth hole. On the back, I went up 2 through 4, and halved the match. Any help on how to close out matches?
  2. Par 5 - 252 to the center, downwind probably 15 yards worth. Hit the green (2-putt for bird).
  3. I just got a new (to me) 3-wood. Basically, I wanted something that was good out of the fairway, rough, and off the tee. On top of this, I looked for a little forgiveness and workability (left-right and right-left). If you just want a 3 wood that is good off the tee - one that acts as a second driver - look for something with a bigger head. Taylor Made and Callaway fit the bill on this one. If you want a good overall 3-wood, something with a little lower profile like PINGs or Clevelands might work out. Just hit a bunch of woods, and see which one you like the most. Major brands are all pretty much equal in quality, so you'll be happy with whatever you get.
  4. I play a 24* 4-iron and a 19* hybrid. I hit the 4-iron 185-190 and the hybrid 210-215 Obviously I have a huge distance gap, and seeing as I'm dropping a wedge, I'll have room to add another hybrid. What loft do you think would fit the distance gap and go about 200? I'm thinking somewhere around 22* would fit the bill. What do you think?
  5. 79 (+7). 42/37. 37 (+1) is my best score on 9 ever. I'm pretty excited about that. Back to the round, 7 fairways, 12 GIR (8 on the back), 36 putts, 2 birds, 2 doubles, three 3-putts, and three 1-putts. I left a few shots out there around the greens on some chips, but I'm happy with the way I hit the ball. Handicap's on its way down!
  6. Where do you think the 2010 NBA Free Agents will end up? LeBron James - Cleveland Dwayne Wade - Miama Chris Bosh - Chicago Amar'e Stoudemire - NY or Phoenix (50/50) Carlos Boozer - Miami Joe Johnson - Atlanta Dirk Nowitzki - Dallas Paul Pierce - Boston Ray Allen - Boston Rudy Gay - Memphis (signed the contract just now) I don't really know and/or care where the other free agents go.
  7. How do you know if you don't watch the NBA? All of this stuff with the refs that you mentioned is all because of MJ. I agree that it sucks sometimes because some of the calls are so cheap but it usually evens out within a game.
  8. My buddy shot 34/46 in a tournament. For me, it's 39/46. It's "only" 7 shots, but I guess it's good that my nines are somewhat consistent.
  9. He's actually got 19. You're a 13 and you can't add? Maybe those 86s are actually 88s ;). All jokes aside, I agree with Fourputt that many golfers just throw clubs in their bag without really thinking about it. If you don't use it, you don't need it. However, I think as your handicap decreases, you're more able to take advantage of 14 clubs.
  10. I wear polarized Bolle sunglasses every single day. Literally every single day, dawn until dusk (I have a raccoon tan unfortunately!). I've never experienced any depth perception problems at all. Before I bought my sunglasses, I looked at some research that suggested polarization is bad for golf, but other sources disagree. I'm really not sure who to believe, but in my own personal experience, polarization does not affect depth perception. That's because "polarization" is not synonymous with "UV protection." They're two mutually exclusive terms, and anyone looking to buy a nice pair of sunglasses should know the difference. UV protection (A,B, and C) is essential in a pair of sunglasses IMO. You've only got two eyes, you should probably protect them as best you can. Plus, I see much better in sunglasses. I think sunglasses are a great idea, and you definitely get what you pay for.
  11. Ebay or special orders through your golf shop/pro shop are probably the best ways to get an individual iron.
  12. So you could actually hit your 3W 220 and your 5W 205, right? I'd suggest trying to get more precise yardages at a range, on a monitor, or during a practice round to determine how far they actually go on good hits (not great, but acceptable hits). If you really only do have a 5 yard gap between your 3 and 5 woods, it could be a number of things. I'm not going to repeat what others have said before me, but I remember reading that golfers with slower swing speeds experience yardage dilemmas like you've described. It's most common in longer irons, but the theory is that with a slower swing speed, you're not getting optimal launch from certain lower lofted clubs. (It's the reason why most of us can't hit a 1-iron; we simply can't swing fast enough for the loft). Whatever the reason is for the lack of distance in the 3W, I'd suggest dropping it or the 5W since they cover 2 very similar distances. P.S. - Hit both off the tee to see the yardage difference. It might have something to do with hitting it off the fairway.
  13. 79 (+7). 41/38. I hit 7 fairways and 13 greens! By far the best I've hit my irons this year. Distance control was spotty though especially on wedge shots. Had a 40 yard pitch into a par 5 and was thinking potential birdie. I overshot my target by 12 yards. 70 yard shot into a par 4, put it into a bunker 20 yards short of my target. 60 yard shot, overshot by 15 yards. 120 yard par 3, overshot by 10 yards. There were others too. I'm really disappointed that I 3-putted four times, but it happens. I've been practicing a lot, but I'm not comfortable with my alignment or stroke on putts inside of 5 feet. Hit the driver well, and kept everything in play like I should. Of 14 par 4 or 5s, I had a reasonable shot for GIR on 12 of them. That means I'm not OB, under a tree, etc. Played well, and I hope I continue it tomorrow.
  14. Phil might not even be 6' tall. I saw him from about ten feet away, and he was significantly shorter than me. I'm 6'3". I'd say you're wrong. I'd be willing to bet that every PGA Tour player is in "great shape" and that many are pretty cut. And as for Tiger not being able to play basketball, that has nothing to do with his athletic ability.
