  2. Wasn't that where Ian Woosnam got gigged for having 15 clubs in his bag?
  3. I love figuring out things on the range. I'll hit a shot & think, okay that went left. Why? Sure, you can look at it as "work," and in a way it is, but to me it's a very relaxed definition of work - labor of love maybe more appropriate.
  4. I've kinda turned into a range rat. Not that I'm some kind of Hoganesque hit-500-balls-a-day guy, but I mean that in my younger days I rarely practiced; I just wanted to play. But it seems like in the past couple of years I prefer hitting a couple of buckets at the range over playing. Odd. I haven't played a round since April, but I've hit the range a good 20-25 times since then. Make me wonder at times, what exactly am I practicing for? And I guess the answer is, cuz I enjoy it.
  5. All I can say is...sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. It's a humbling game.
  6. I'm picturing Tom Lehman as you wrote this. His feet are left of the target, ball starts right, draws to the middle.
  7. About a year back, at age 58, I re-did my whole set. As a concession to age I got rid of all my stiff-shafted clubs & 9.5 degree driver. Went to R-flex on everything & got a 10.5 degree Driver. High draws...what a concept.
  8. I'll have to experiment with opening the face - I imagine that's where the "push" in the "push draw" will come from. But as it is, with the inside path, the ball is starting out to the left of the target & drawing back (I'm a lefty).
  9. Had an "accidental discovery" at the range a couple of months back re steepness. First I had the thought that I was too steep - my divots were too deep, and, being two months shy of 60, it hurt lol. So I thought, 'How do I shallow out my swing?' The conclusion I came up with was to come into the ball more from the inside - I just assumed that if the club is coming in from the inside then it's difficult to be steep. So I made a conscious effort to take it back flatter & keep it there - don't 'over the top' it at all - flat to inside was my thought. Well, it certainly worked,
  10. Actually yeah, and it was very recent - Wife & I visited Mexico in April, researching places to retire since I'm two years away from that. We checked out Lake Chapala, which is a wonderful place - Mexico's largest freshwater lake, 5,000 feet up, a half hour south of Guadalajara. They only have two courses Lakeside, both of them 9 hole layouts. One of them is private, so I ended up playing the other, Chula Vista, 4 times. It's short, hilly & tight. No carts so you have to walk, and you must take a caddy. At first I thought, "Oh great. A short 9 holer" but by the time I pl
  11. Four putters lol. The previous posts have pretty much nailed it - a putter & some kind of wedge, obviously. The other two clubs are whatever you're comfortable with hitting long & straight. For me that would be a 3h & probably a 6 iron.
  12. Was gonna say, but already mentioned - FIVE wedges? What's the difference, really, between the 54 & 58? Why not split the difference & get a 56 to replace both of them?
  13. lol I remember that well. What always got me about him was, how could anyone enjoy playing like that? If it were me I would have either taken lessons or threw my clubs away.
  14. It's not beside my point. I just deviated off on a tangent by invoking myself. Any 2.2 is not going to play well in a professional event. Whether it's me, you or Steph Curry. And yes...I will concede that Curry's comfort with the big stage will help him...certainly can't hurt. But he simply doesn't have the game. It's a simple point that I needlessly complicated.
  15. Okay, then I guess I should have kept myself & my experiences out of it since I'm not Steph Curry. My bad. So I'll just state it like this - a 2.2 HCI playing in a web.com event ain't breaking 85. Whether they have championship rings from another sport or not.
