  1. I have never played it, but some of us golfers who are not "PROS" may find just about any golf course "tricky".Mr. DAGOLFER was just making a statement as to what he found the course to be. Not all of us are "pros", but we all still enjoy the game. To make a statement like "whats tricky about it" was poorly put, but who am I. I also don't consider all pros to be real pros. To me the guys I see on TV, are the real pros, and for the most part not the ones who are labeled that at our local golf courses. I know this...to become a pro at a local golf course is not as difficult as most people think. I know what PRO stands for, but I am sure it is not what you think it is...Good day...
  2. I guess I should have said a heavier swingweight, instead of a heavier club. My swingweights are around an E-3. I have been playing with these irons for over six weeks now. My scoring is probably a bit better, but I have been putting quite well. My GIR's have also got better. I am up to an average of around 12, but from the senior tees I can sometimes hit 15. I am probably going to take off 1 inch and try them there. My swingweight will probably be around a D-8 I would say. It's getting to the end of the season and will probably get into fishing a bit more. All in all it's been a good year. Now I am looking at a new set of clubs. Titleist AP 3's...
  3. I don't think so..If you hit your first ball out of bounds, stroke and distance should make your third shot from the tee I believe.
  4. I understand that the rule for hitting a ball out of bounds is that you tee up another ball and hit it which would be your 3rd shot. I was told that you no longer have to go back to the tee, but you are allowed to drop where you think that the ball went out. I would like some clarafication on this rule as to what your options are, and what penalty is assessed.. Thank you
  5. Scrambles are not golf. There is absolutly no defense. People try to hit shots that they are not capable of doing. Just trying to get that one lucky shot to win some money. So changing a stupid ball during play I think there is nothing wrong with it.
  6. What does "more offset" in a set of irons make you hit the ball? I am getting very confused by this. Would like to hear what you guys think about it... Thank you
  7. I have been playing this ball since they came out. When I was able to launch this ball 275 yards I felt that there was a definite great feeling of confidence hitting this ball. My iron shots to the greens usually held quite well, and believe it or not, even putting this ball was a feeling of confidence. I am now 65 years old, and am still playing this ball, even though my carry yardage on my drives have shrunk to just a little over 210 yards. If I do not lose a ball, it seems like I can get probably over 10 rounds on it easily. Probably the only reason that I change the ball is because of the appearance of it. My question is, am I overextending the playability of this ball?? I do notice sometimes that the distance it travels may be a bit shorter, but then I follow it up with a nice iron shot. So I keep playing it. Any advice??? Thank you
  8. I try many many different varations of grips. Just about as many as I have putters which is probably around 15 or so. I love putting and probably spend 75% of my practice there. Putting is not a part of golf. It is a different sport alltogether. You can be having a bad round of golf, but if you are putting good it possibly can save your round. But if you are putting badly enough, and can't get the ball into the hole your round will suffer. You do not have to be able to bust the ball 275 yards down the fairway to be a good putter. Or be able to hit your approach shots to within 15 foot of the hole to be a good putter. Practicing putting, and I do mean practice good basics, makes you a good putter.
  9. I was playing in a foursome with some friends. We were putting on a par three, and were probably all within a 25 foot diameter of the hole. We heard a ball crash into a tree next to our hole. The ball rolled up onto our green, and as we all watched the ball rolled up between all of us as we watched and,(YOU GUESSED IT), rolled gently into the hole. I could not believe it!! The gentleman walked up as we were finishing and we directed him to where his ball ended up, and were laughing. But the gentleman by his facial expression was not well pleased, nor found it funny...
  10. I have NEVER walked off the golf course during a bad round.Don;t believe that anyone should either. When I am having a difficult round where nothing seems to be working, the first thing I try to do,(but sometimes still doesn't work), is remain positive. Play the rest of the round one stroke at a time, just like you should be doing anyway. Try to play within yourself, and try to at least hit a few above average shots. Try to enjoy the rest of your round, and I usually just finish my round, then just go home and basically forget about it. Now if it's just ONE bad round the better golfers can do this. If it is a reoccuring problem, or issue, you may have to go to the range and work on it. But this does happen even to the better players out there. Some dwell on it, and some don't. I believe that the truly better players will just put it aside and forget about it...
  11. At least someone feels the same way I do.LOL...I do not, and will not let my score effect the way I played. I judge my round on the way I putted, and the way I struck the ball. Definitly not my score. I know this is something we are always trying to lower, and are pleased with a low scoring round, and I am no different, but when my round is finished I first count up my GIR's, then see how many putts I had. If I am able to hit 10-12 greens, and keep my putts less than 32, my score will usually reflect how I played. I believe that when you are done playing you have to look at the good shots you hit, and also where you did not play your best. Try to improve on that...
  12. This is exactly what they had done. I believe this use to be an old fish hatchery years ago I was told. Its not the most senic, or well designed course I have ever played, but the roughs were hard as concrete and an erant shot would travel a long way, usually ending up in a bunker or pond.
  13. Doing what you say also makes it so you are facing different shots. I tend to do the same thing to make a game out of it for myself, because I also play quite a few rounds by myself. I have found that if you play the same course, the same way, you sorta get complaicant.(probably spelled wrong). That is you hit your driver, then you get to your ball, pull out a 5 iron, or 7, or whatever and hit it. Same shot every day. I think is't a great idea to mix it up a bit...I know I have been told by others on here that I don't play the course the way that it was designed, but its my money, and I will play it whatever way I like. Sometimes move up on an easy par 5 and play it as a chalenging par 4. I am not saying to put it our of reach, but make it where if you make a 4 on it, you feel like you have accomplished something..Just my thoughts...
  14. Yeah, pretty much. I am not sure if it is still open. It just seemed like when I played it that everytime I hit my ball someone would say, "there's water over there!!".
