  1. Jessie Ortiz has developed a new driver for the bobby jones company. It follows the same cues as the players series, but has more of a triangular shape. It comes out in about 2 weeks. Also, he developed 2 new hybrids (17*, 35*) to go along with the already award winning set of hybrids (19, 21, 25, 30). In addition, there will be a BJ wedge set coming out as well, and let me tell you, having hit one of these bad boys, BJ might be giving the vokey a run for its money.
  2. neudi did you play at the publinx at stone ridge? or did they have a site down nearer to dayton?
  3. For about 5 years I played without a single wood in my bag. Im a decently long hitter, but totally inaccurate with a wood in my hand. I dropped the wood, picked up a driving iron and some hybrids and begun to really work on my long irons, approach, short game and especially skilled shots (under trees, long bunker shots, buried lies). I got my handicap down near single digits and decided to pick the woods back up. Now that I have become semi-consistant with a wood, and I still have the amazing iron/ short/ skilled game from having to work my ass off around every course for 5 years, im now looking at scratch hopefully by the end of next season. I would highly recommend this, if you are going to be playing for a couple years of course. It really made me focus hard on my short game and approaches, which are where you really lose strokes anyway. When I walk up to the tee of a par 3, im not looking to par, im looking to birdie every single time. Before I put the woods back on par 4's, I would no so much focus on getting there in regulation, but making sure I had no more than 5 foot for par every par 4. Par 3's and par 5's were my attack holes, obviously on a par 5 without a wood I wouldnt have the distance to get there in 2, so that was some pressure and possible bad decisions eliminated from my game. I would focus on getting to the green in 3 (2 iron, middle iron, wedge) lagging one up tight and walking off with a par. With this approach, Pars came easy, bogeys happened... but so did birdies. ...and now that I have the big dawgs back in the bag, and I have a huge amount of confidence in the short game, it allows me to rear back and fire off every tee box, because even if I get in trouble, I just revert back to the old ways... play for par.
  4. Which ball do you use? or prefer?

    no way no how... those of you who dont swear by the new nxt extremes, or for lower handicappers the nxt tours... you dont know what your missing. The solidness and yardage of a rock, with an extremely soft shell and spin comparable to the pro V... for half the cost? you guys are out of your minds if you dont play these.
  5. Shortest Missed Putt

    pretty similar for me as well. Short 98 yard par 3 down hill. Off the tee the ball hit the side of the cup leaving a pitch mark actually around the brim of the cup. My friend wouldnt give me the 1.5 footer for birdie, and then I missed it.
  6. Taylormade Woods

    In my personal experience: Callaway: Much less forgiving, a tournament player club, very low handicap. Workable, VERY playable for fades and draws. More advance of a driver while... Taylormade: Overal better. Not as long, but much, much more forgiving. Harder to work, but the ball just goes straight. I used to spray my callaway 315 yds, left right backward... everywhere. Switched to the superquad, and although I may only get it out there 300 on a good poke, its dead straight everytime. The taylormade seems to have a MUCH higher lofty ball flight.
  7. Which putter do you use?

    The company I work for represents the super stroke too (we represent momentus, bobby jones, skycaddie, medicus, f2, never compromise, super stroke... basically all the comercials you see on the golf channel). Although I have heard wonders about it, i never really had a whole lot of wrist action to begin with so I never found a use for it. I go for the softer the better, thats why I love the rife grips. Im thinking about putting a red rife grip on my odyseey, but that seems just wrong.
  8. Which putter do you use?

    I work for guerin rife as a part time job right now, and the island putters are amazing. They are so light, and the grips... oh the grips... they feel so good. Definitely gets the ball rolling forward faster than any putter I have seen... they cant get me to switch though I love my Dfx no 2 way too much.
  9. Which driver do you use?

    I currently swing a superquad (not a TP, im cheap), but im thinking about moving to the CGB4, that thing looks amazing. Has anyone seen the new burner Irons? i had a chance to swing them at dicks the other day and they might be my next investment.
  10. I played the wannamaker in august and thought it was just a brilliant course. Comparable to kiawah island course, just a little more swampy.
  11. What Do You Do for a Living?

    wrapping up my degree in microbiology/ applied molecular biology. Ill be joining my first league starting in may
  12. Are you talking about the PGA Village? or the PGA National course. They are both in the area I believe. Ive played the Wannamaker at the Village and from what I hear its much more of a scenic course than the National.
  13. J.Nicklas hidden gem

    I happen to be fortunate enough to live on the 15 green of a jack signature course. Glenmoor CC in canton, OH. Amazing course, generous fairways that are always in imaculate condition. Its the greens that get you, they consistently roll 12's and are very undulated. The three holes by my house are called 'the bear trap' as they wind around two ponds and woods. #13 is a straight 400 something yd par 4, with the landing area tapered by woods. #14 is a par 3 completely over water with a horizontal green and a deep bunker if you miss long, about 5 yards worth of landing area with the hardest pin position. #15 is a beautiful long par 5 with a pond that runs the length of the left side, two huge bunkers guard the elevated green which has a run off chipping area long, dead zone. The green slopes severely to the front, so if your short your either in the bunkers or roll off, if your long your down in death valley.
  14. Longest Personal Drive?

    360 no joke. I average right around 280-300. I smoked a ball dead center to a fairway that right around 300 slopes way down hill. I must have carried the ball 310, because right at the ridge of the hill, there is a cart path that bisects the fairway. I see the ball take about a 60 foot hop straight up, and WAY down the hill. 360 almost on the nose. Too bad our par 4's are terribly long because I still had a knockdown PW into the green.
  15. Gap between 5 wood and 3 iron?

    no matter what degree your 3 iron comes in at I would strongly recommend picking up a 21 degree hybrid. My 3 iron is 22 degrees, my baffler hybrid is 21 degrees and I can tell you the shot capabilities of both clubs are totally different. The hybrid stretches out from 205-215, while the 3 iron is from 200-210... but i never hit the 3 iron out of the rough. Rough, bunker, long fairway, long par 3 off the tee.. always hybrid. heres a list of what you should check out Low handicapper: Cobra Baffler Mid Handicapper: Taylormade Rescue High Handicapper: Bobby Jones Player Series Hybrid H3 (buy it off me im on commission!)
