  1. I play with progressive lenses. Really difficult at first; thought it was impossible to play well with them. Ball would get blurry and out of focus during backswing. But I stuck with it, and my eyes have re-trained and adapted to stay in focus with the progressive lenses. Great on the golf course. But you will suffer for several rounds until you instinctively learn to adapt. Stick with it and they will work for you.
  2. What a shame. You'll never get to shoot your age.😑
  3. I have a couple of the original "SuperStick" adjustable clubs that you lock into the different positions with a thumbscrew. Fun to use on a shorter length course. The "long" settings (Driver, 3, 4 irons etc) launch lower and not as far, and the shorter settings (8, 9, pw) go a lot higher and farther than a typical set. A lot like the characteristics of a "one length" set of irons. You can certainly play golf with a "SuperStick" once you get used to it, but you won't be using it all that often.
  4. Both legs are affected, The rod is in the right leg and the left ankle is patched together with screws and pins. If he comes back in any fashion, it will likely be with a whole new swing.
  5. At one point years ago, some Hogan wedges were marked "E" for "Equalizer".
  6. I think Joe LaCava needs to start looking around....
  7. You could see he clearly dented it. As he walked away, he looked back and hesitated, wondering if he should go back and fix it. He did not. I'm sure it will cost him.
  8. Nice broadcast this year, only professional swings, beautiful camera shots, and no focus on celebrities. I don't miss them at all. Too bad many of the top names have skipped this event and are playing elsewhere.
  9. Very popular putter design back in the day. So effective, it was actually made illegal for tournament play at one point.
  10. I'm sure that many name-brand "designer" courses today just use distinctive elements preferred by the named designer. The named designer might just show up for a photo op one day on the course. There is a Gary Player course in Connecticut (Lyman Orchards) that has photos of Gary putting on one of the greens. Truth is, he just flew in by helicopter one day, got out, and hit a mid iron to the green, putted out and left for a tournament in Westchester. Probably had little or nothing to do with the actual planning and design of the course. But I do think Ross was more of a "hands on" guy.
  11. Employees must not be too happy about the move. Unlike Orlando, golf in Connecticut is extremely poor to non-existent December through March. Hope they bring their indoor golf simulators with them.😉
  12. Excellent points here, and excellent video to illustrate them. The swing seems so much easier when you apply them. Lately, I've focused on the height of my right elbow through the backswing which accomplishes the same thing for me. After doing it "wrong" for so long it felt like the "flying right elbow" we've been taught to avoid for years. But if you look at some of the longest drivers over the years (Nicklaus, Couples, Bubba and now Wolff) you will see some pretty high right elbows at the top of their backswings. But this just makes it easier to drop the club down into the "slot" and hit fro
  13. Sounds like you might like on of those "Square Strike" clubs as seen on TV. Nothing more than a chipper design that's been around for years.
  14. Make sure to leave some room in there for the bottle.😀
  15. I like to warm up the way the original Scots did - open the bottle, take a few swigs, then tee off..😉
