  1. Same here, just with higher lofted woods. Titleist all the way!
  2. lol i just found the Wedge Replacement post ( http://thesandtrap.com/forum/showthr...ighlight=wedge )
  3. I'm not sure if anyone's ever discussed this but I want to know if this would be a good wedge setup: PW - 48 (actually 47 with my 704.CB's but same thing) SW - 54 degree LW - 60 degree I currently have a 48-52-56 setup but I'm interested in getting a lob wedge. However, that would mean 4 wedges which also means no hybrid in the bag. If I do get a 48-54-60 setup, i'm afraid the difference in lofts will be too much. What to do? what to dooo?
  4. ........ Give me your most comprehensive review of the club once you get it. PLEASE.... I desperately need a hybrid club. Not having one HAS helped me learn to hit my 3 Iron but I really wish I could go for more par 5's or be closer to the hole when I can't hit my driver. My game is getting better so quickly these days, I think its because I get free balls at the range now that I'm an employee there and I really think some new equipment could plug some gaps that are still in my game... I remember messing up my second shot on a par 5 with my shitty 3 wood... there's a really troublesome stream on that hole so I hit a 3 iron off the tee PERFECTLY but I still had a lot left to the water... 3 wood would have been a little risky but a utility or something could have made life a lot easier... unfortunately, I ended up with a double or something like that...
  5. I use to rip up my skin all the time with my grip. I played a lot this summer so I developed a lot of callousses but the best thing you can do is check your grip pressure. Or like my instructor says, pretend your holding a tofu or a squid in your hands. I didn't know I was gripping too tightly until I noticed how tense my forearms were. The best thing to do is to get someone to check up on your grip.

    Gamesmanship

    I voted frequently but I'd like to change my answer. I don't see gamesmanship as low-class except when you're trying to have a friendly round and you decide you have to beat your friends or playing partner to have fun. You have to put on the heat sometimes, especially when you're playing for your school to win the league championships. But usually, I'm only worried about my own game and I actually try to block out my opponents or playing partners COMPLETELY. Like the article said, its a double edged sword so if someone begins being a jerk for no good reason, they can guarantee I won't be giving them any 2 footers. When i'm playing for money or something with my friends, I usually just try and pressure them by taking everything very seriously instead of by saying anything that could get into their heads. Throwing off their focus doesn't feel as effective as REALLY putting the pressure on them over a putt that could potentially cost them their weeks allowance.
  7. HOLED A SHOT FROM 135 YARDS TODAY Par 4, tee shot was short but in the fairway. Conditions were pretty dry so i was expecting some roll and i happened to be correct. Perfect trajectory, slightest draw, and bounce-bounce-roll into the cup. First eagle ever and first hole-out from off the green. I've gotten so close to chipping or pitching it in so many times and somehow i manage to hole it from 135 yards. Pretty amazing shot... too bad i couldnt complete my round =/ oh well. at least i know how it feels to hit a pro shot =P
  8. Hey you should make this a poll or a sticky or something so we can see how the majority of us putts.

    Presidents Cup

    hahah looks like Thrasher's predictions were right about Tiger.
  10. looks like he's no hype since he's won the 84 Lumber classic Funny how chris mentioned john daly
  11. where the heck did you find that picture? I got NO search results when i was looking for more information on that club. google just sent me back here -_-;; btw, that club looks SWEEEEEET
  12. Simple Question: What type of putting style do you use? I'm right handed and I use a crossover grip with the back of my left hand pretty strong and resting heavily on top of my right hand. I've found that this REALLY limits any twisting and allows me to focus more on speed. I attached a picture.
  13. Damn I know how that feels... I still haven't broken 40 for 9 or 80 for 18... It's definitely the mental game because i've gotten so close this past season. Hopefully I can continue to sharpen my mental game before the season ends (which is something I am NOT NOT NOT looking forward to)

    Shanks

    In my opinion, 99.9999% of shanks come from improper set-up. People say 'feel over mechanics', I say ingrain the proper mechanics into your "feel" of a good golf swing. =]
  15. First you need to check a few things. You could be PULLING the ball because your stance is somewhat open and your clubface is shut at impact. What I recommend is doing the opposite: set your right foot back until ur aiming your feet at least 10 degrees off line BUT SQUARE YOUR BODY AND CLUB. This will allow you to play some nice hook/draws. If you ARE coming over the top, you're hands and body will disconnect completely somewhere in the downswing and you'll definitely feel it. Feel your arms come nicely from your right around your hips and let your clubface run squarely down the target line. This usually works for me. You're probably hitting pulls because your 'feel' has kinda shifted over time. That usually happens if you prefer anything other than "square" positions and play that way for too long. If you see the pros, 90%+ of them try to keep everything square. FEEL relies too much on personal preferences and that's hard to fix when you're off. If you keep everything square, you can easily find what you're doing wrong. In other words: Keep Everything Squared.
