  1. I used to leave my driver at home occasionally but not any more. Since the larger head drivers have become so popular it's much easier to hit the driver than it was prior to the new designs.
  2. My favorite is still Arnold Palmer...the greatest ambassador to the game that I've ever seen. Yes, there are some exciting new players and young players out there but Palmer set the standard for others to aspire to. And that standard covers more than just swinging a club.

    GPS

    The GPS units, Garmin, etc. are pretty cool but they are pricey.. I still use my old rangefinder and it works just fine for me.
  6. Depending on the group we usually play either 50 Cents or a dollar; per hole birdies closest to the pin on par 3's longest drive on par 5's Got a friend who plays for $1000 lowest score with his Friday foursome. At the end of the year the one who has won the thousand bucks the most during the year treats the foursome + Wives to dinner at Bobs Chop House.

    how to break 80.

    here are a few suggestions; 1- leave your driver at home and use a 3 wood on the tee 2- practice long putts. make your goal to try to 2 putt every green. Most amateur golfers usually come up short when they do manage to hit the green and end up with a long first putt. if you can 2 putt every green instead of 3 putting you'll shave 18 strokes off your game right away. 3- practice chipping. Like coming up short on the green, coming up short on your approach shot is very common for amateurs. You can save a lot of strokes if you can chip well. Along with chipping practice, try using your 8 iron for chip shots. You may find it's easier to accomplish a better chip shot with an 8 iron than a wedge.
  8. The most annoying guy at my club used to be a white trash hillbilly who spit tobacco juice in the cup just before you'd make a birdie putt. I made the mistake of playing 9 holes with the guy ...but only once. The club finally sent him packing.
  9. Used to walk, Back surgery made me a carter.
  10. Lets see..... new clubs every 20 years or so comes out to about 50 bucks a year ... then there's course fees...twice a month at $37 per round... add in some extras-hot dogs & beer at the turn around... balls...I only bought 2 dozen balls in the past year. call it $1000 bucks a year.

    Course Rates

    my local course has a senior rate for anyone over 50.....$17 and that includes the cart for 18 holes.
  12. Service deserves a tip. and anyone who doesn't tip a gal for bringing you something to drink while your out on the course is a cheap sob. besides, if a $2.35 bottle of water is breaking the bank for you then you shouldn't be playing golf to begin with because you clearly can't afford it. end of argument.
  13. we had a guy for a while who liked to spit his tobacco juice in the hole on the greens. I think someone cleaned his clock one day cause he disappeared and was never heard from again.
