  1. Reading Greens / Reading Fairways

    Can someone link me to, or explain a concise explanation of how to read greens and fairways? Meaning: What does it mean when a green is fast, What does it mean when a green is slow, What does it mean when a fairway is hard, etc. I know fast, means the balls roll faster, but how do you account for that in a swing? Lower the power? Any info / posts are appreciated.
  2. Hello from Sandy / Salt Lake City, Utah

    I live right next to River Oaks, so I've played that, and West Ridge, and Mulligan's two 9-hole courses. Where do you usually play? I'm pretty bad, I think I shot a 55 on a par 35 at West Ridge. Ha.
  3. How much does it really matter to have a top-brand putter?

    Having the best gear in any sport matters. Don't kid yourself with a putter. If you learn on terrible gear, you may play with terrible gear.
  4. Hybrids - Ping G15 v K15

    Yep, that's even how they have them classified on the PING website.
  5. Yeah, I understand it now, sorry for the F-bomb.
  6. If I like a website, a sponsor, etc, why would I not naturally support a source? :/
  7. Is TheSandTrap that desperate for click-throughs that they'd set every area outside the forum body to link to some paid sponsor? Seriously?
  8. Hey guys, I started playing golf about 12 years ago when I hit the driving range with my father a few times. I haven't played since then and recently started picking it up again -- and I've gotta admit I've got the bug hard. Any other Utahns around? Moving to downtown SLC in a bit and looking at the SLC golf course pass, all day every day 1800$/yr for one whole year. Would love to find some folks to play with. Thanks guys, Hunter
  9. The Big Break "Indian Wells"

    This thread makes me wish I had cable... I had DirecTV but when I moved, lost the view of the sky we needed. We're moving in a month and I will resub to directv and get the HD golf channel. 8)
  10. Quitting? Serious advice wanted.

    I'm just getting started, but I've heard a lot of issues are mental. How are your thoughts when hitting? Think about it much? Focusing on hitting it straight, etc? Maybe when you are getting lessons, you are "distracted" -- ya know?
  11. Hello from Sandy, UT

    What's up guys -- I'm in Sandy too, but moving downtown in August.
