  1. Depends on what you're looking for. On the slightly more player's side, the bridgestone j36 and adams idea pro gold are great hybrids. They're both definitely not closed (although I did have some left issues with the j36 even though anyone else that hit mine did not). I'm in love with my idea pro gold right now. The one place the j36 was better was out of rough and sketchier lies.
  2. In general, par 5s by far. With 2 average hits I can reach a 465 yard par 5 in 2. That isn't that many par 5s in 2 so I usually lay up to around 80-105 yards and wedge in and make my
  3. if you are actually a 19.8... I'd stay far far away from the mp-30s.. they are probabably almost as close to blades as cavity backs get. I don't know much else about the others though.
  4. too flat will contribute to a fade or leaving it out right. the toe will hit the ground slightly first and the clubface won't square up normally compared to having the leading edge flush to the ground.
  5. Might as well add to this. We need some actual pic posts. Bag is pretty much set but I think I'm going to switch out my hybrids.
  6. If you're looking for 3 wedges I would go 50, 55, 60. If you're looking for 2 wedges, I would go 52, 58 or 54, 60 depending on how well you can play your smoothed 3/4 or 1/2 pitching wedge.

    Club Throwing

    Have hardly thrown a club but I will tomahawk it into the ground on occasion. I have a pretty short temper but I'm getting better and better about it. I will have rounds where I have a lot of bad shots but manage to hold my composure and not expose a peep of emotion through a double bogey or a birdie. At the same time I will have rounds where I after every bad shot I let out a disgusted sigh and feel like slamming my clubhead into the ground. I'm trying to trend towards the former. If I have a bad swing and I feel it through my swing, I always just quit on it and let the club drop at the top of my swing but usually manage to catch it. I don't think there's anything wrong with that really.
  8. I have a tei3 and it's tough on lag putts on slow greens. If you putt quite agressively, it should be a good putter.
  9. rah experience is over rated. George bush had plenty of experience but he still managed to f*ck sh!t up. America as a whole is still racist and sexist. Hillary would be having just as much - probably more- trouble with all the men who wrongly think that a woman shouldn't be in office. Many people try to disguise their racism or sexism by finding other reasons to disapprove of Hillary and Obama. I'm not saying that most people who are against Obama are actually racist because of course many people will disagree with his policies but I would bet a lot of money that a good percentage of those people have some subtle (or not so subtle) racist feelings towards him. Either that or all those who like to point out that his middle name is Hussein and try to make him out to be unpatriotic. The fact that there are emails circulating saying Obama is Muslim and people actually believing that (and finding a problem with it EVEN though it isn't true) and passing it on says something about America. I disagree with the funny movie rant but it's simply a matter of personal opinion. I love obscene crude hilarity and one-liners. Judd apatow is god in my eyes. I loved pineapple express, tropic thunder, and step brothers.
  10. It really depends on the situation but I'm all about gratuitous loft. Honestly I don't flub too many chips so playing high drop and stop shots is much more fun and gets just as good results if not better than bump and runs. If I have a back pin from a good distance out though I'll try to play a low spinner or maybe a bump and run.
  11. I have a teryllium long neck newport. I like it a lot but like someone else has said - it's not the best on slow greens. I play on some slower greens (some with very large greens) and I really have to take a big stroke on some of the longer lag putts which can lead to some ugly strokes.
  12. There's a big difference between a fade and a slice. Plenty of players have a left to right ball flight such as Vijay Singh and KJ Choi. No one is critiquing there technique any more so than Rocco or Tom Lehman. There's nothing wrong with a fade. There IS something wrong with a slice though. A fade is a fine ball flight and probably the most controllable ball flight.
  13. Really depends on the shot. I try to use only as much loft as I need to but in all honesty I'm all about gratuitous loft. I think I use my 54 and 60 about the same amount. I'm pretty good with flop shots so I love using my 60. I will try to use my 22* (when I'm right up against the rough on the fringe) and anywhere from a 54-9 for bump and runs around the green. I mostly use the 54 for bump and runs though because I can deloft it and hold off my release effectively. Chipping is one of my strengths so I like playing many different kinds of shots with my 54 and 60.
  14. http://www.rockbottomgolf.com/clevel...arl-wedge.html use the remaining 60 for lessons?
  15. Well there isn't just one right way to do it. For example Zach Johnson (Getty Images : search for 81899306) has the clubface dead shut at the top where as Geoff Ogilvy (Getty Images : search for 81553246) has the clubface very open; both of them have flat left wrists. Ideal in my opinion is probably half way between them for a more neutral face position at the top.
