  1. 81. My best round ever. 11 pars, 2 doubles, 5 bogeys.
  2. I surely need a consistent pre-shot routine. I appreciate the replies and I'll take a look at "Zen Golf".
  3. Basically, I have a couple of groups I play with where my game just falls apart. I play 75% of the time as a single and even though I'll get paired with strangers a good bit of the time, I'm able to focus on my game and play fairly well. When I play with the relatives or with the work buddies, it turns into a 'smoke and joke' fest and my 82 can turn in to 102. It drives me nuts but I can't seem to shake it. It's not pressure to do well or getting nervous. It's just my brain's not in golf mode and before I know it, the round is over and I've posted a big score. Just curious if there are any good books or other resources out there that deal with this mental side of the game?
  4. Like many, I fought a big slice for years. One day I just decided to learn how to hook the ball. Once I could feel how to make the ball move I could straighten out my flight and picked-up yardage. My advice is to take a few lessons. You can struggle with your swing for years (I know I did) waiting for a eureka moment, or try to learn good fundamentals early and make the game much more enjoyable.
  5. I've tried watching this Open for the last couple of days, but it's a snooze fest. The leaders don't have any personality to speak of, and after watching the beat down at Merion, the course they're playing looks like it's set up about as hard as a local muni. The greens are slow, the fairways are huge. It will be interesting to watch the women play Pinehurst #2 next year right after the men's Open. They'll obviously be moved up quite a bit, but hopefully the USGA won't change the rough or the greens in the few days leading to the women's Open. Back to watching the Colonial.
  6. I have the 910f with the ahina and it's a great combo. Nice flight for me and a stable shaft with a bit of weight. Of course, with surefit you can dial the loft up or down a bit to suit you. I did not like the feel of the 910 fd at all. It's what ever floats your particular boat.
  7. I used to like the D2 Feel and the Gamer V2, but haven't purchased any since Dicks bought the brand. Do the balls feel / preform the same?
  8. Appreciate the reply, but even the Titleist website shows the bottom picture as their example of the 710. http://www.titleist.com/golf-clubs/irons/AP1-710.aspx I haven't been able to find anything via web search on 2 versions of this iron.
  9. I'm looking at pictures of the 710 AP1's and there seem to be two versions. Were these irons revised mid life cycle? Is one better than the other? Thanks for the help.
  10. It's a great driver. You don't say what shaft you have in it, what your swing speed is, or what your miss is. The shaft may be too much or too little for you, but it's a great head. You say you haven't adjusted it yet ... Get that wrench out and start playing with different settings to find one that likes your swing. Those settings make a difference. Assuming your miss is a fade/slice, try some of the high draw settings.
  11. I had a set of these once upon a time and played my best golf with them . Gave them to my nephew years ago when he started golfing. I can't think of anything similar off the top of my head in today's irons. They had a mid / large size head, a fairly narrow rounded sole and a topline that was narrower than a something like a Ci11 but not at thin as a blade. The cavity was also pretty shallow. Any ideas?
  12. Really haven't seen too much information on the Wilson Ci11 irons. I have a set of Ci7's that are just as good as they ever were, but am curious if anyone has played / owned both and could give their opinion as to how the sets differ (if at all). Thx.
  13. Seriously. It might sound silly, but why don't pro's play SGI irons? They can repeatedly strike their irons in a spot about the size of a nickel ... so consistency shouldn't be a problem. They can have the lofts bent any way they want so 'juiced-up' irons isn't a problem (they could also have the offset pressed-out). It was often said that one of Jack's (and Tiger's) big advantages was the ability to hit it high; so high (within reason) seems to be good. And for the rare instance when they make a bad swing, an SGI iron would minimize the penalty. So with millions on the line, why don't pro's use SGI irons?
  14. It's the Vegas bookmakers that send the 'yellers' to annoy the players and try to swing the game.
