  1. Ecco. I can not wear sneaker looking shoes. Call me trad. I need shoes. Current ones are all black. But, I like saddle shoes also
  2. My current ones are from 2001, and the soles are decaying. Plus, I need to replace the worn out spikes, or just get new shoes. Any good values out there? I don't want sneaker looking ones. I want ones that look like classic dress shoes. Here is an option: https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/p/footjoy-fj-originals-golf-shoes-16fjymfjrgnlwhtbrgsh/16fjymfjrgnlwhtbrgsh
  3. Inflation over the last 4 years has been a few percent.. That would account for a rise from $50 to about $52
  4. In 2014, I bought a used Rocketballz RBZ 10.5* driver from Ebay for $55. 45.5" Regular flex shaft Got it cut down to 44" and a new grip for a whopping $7. Total cost for a "fitted" driver was $62.. Now, when I search Ebay for the same exact driver, they are selling for $100. What happened?
  5. He's got a tiny driver. He tried my RocketBallz and liked it. He wants to upgrade, and I said all the new ones are essentially the same. I told him to get a used Ping G15/20/25/30. Is there any real difference between these models? I figure any one of them is a huge upgrade from his tiny driver.
  6. Just started playing again after many years away. Game is rough around the edges. Inconsistent for now. All day I've had a consistent bit of slice fade. On the last few holes, I told my friend to stand behind me and see if my feet were aligned correctly. He said my toes were pointed to the left side of the rough. So, I adjusted and the slice was reduced bigtime. What are some of your tips for correct alignment and aiming?
  7. This thread has answered my question. Modern graphite can have various flexes, and are not always 1990s fishing pole whips. My shafts even say "R", so I will keep using them. They are probably a better fit than my old stiff shaft DCI's, and they are a free $1000 set of irons. So, I will keep using them!
  8. As long as it's not a massive mistake and totally inappropriate for my average swing speed, I will gladly use the upgraded clubs. Saves me on regripping costs!
  9. Just practice that shot hundreds of times. Do you have a place where you can do that. Practice is everything.
  10. So, you're saying getting "R" flex graphite shafts is not a colossal mistake? If so, then I will keep using the clubs if it's not a big deal. Just wondering what the difference b/w "R" flex steel shaft vs. "R" flex graphite shaft ?
  11. Driving range is one small slice of golf. When I played 5x a week, I would use my club's course to practice. I'd hit 5-10 balls out of the trap (even if I didn't go into the trap) I'd putt on each green for 10 mins. after my hole was done. I'd chip out of the rough onto the green. I'd practice bump and run with 7 iron. I'd practice flop shots.\ Any shot under 20 yards, I'd play 5 times since the course was empty. I did this for a few years ago got to 13. (Never was able to hit 90s drivers) How do people practice if they are not a member of a club?
  12. When I got a new driver a few years ago, I went to Golfsmith and had a guy check out my swing. My swing speed is about 85-89mph. He said it's nice and smooth and regular flex shaft is right for me.
  13. I'm getting back into golfing. I know that skill is 99% and equipment is 1%.My clubs are 1994 set of Titleist DCI with stiff shaft.I never should have gotten stiff, since I peaked out at 13 hcp.I am certain I just need R(egular) shaft for an average swing speed.With my old set:100 yards = wedge150 = 6 iron.3W goes 190 (Old TaylorMade 3W)Driver goes 230 (Rocketballz)Well, a friend just gave me a set of his new Callaway Steelhead XRThe shafts are Ozik Program f15 60/r matrix(He just wants to stick with his 1990s Tommy Armour 745s)My game is rusty so I just need to groove my swing again.Without spending any money, I have a choice between too stiff and too flex?Do you think I should use the Callaway's w. graphite shafts?Are graphite shafts only for old dead people?I don't see how my friend ...who was an 8....was sold old man shafts!Has the industry evolved ?
  14. I am not referring to chipping, but to full 100% swings with the 9 or W. I was told to pay it off the front foot
  15. http://nypost.com/2016/08/08/equipment-failure-exposes-nikes-absurd-tiger-woods-lie/ In this case, however, Nike was barking up the wrong money tree. Golfers aren’t as impressionable or as vulnerable as high school kids who would equate a $225 pair of Third World, made-on-the-cheap Air Jordans to neighborhood status symbols. Golfers generally don’t pursue what Nike is so practiced and expert at selling; golfers don’t seek street cred. I the end, Nike’s golf division operated off the same marketing plan that would stoke the desires of 15-year-olds with little sense of proportion and no sense that they’re being had. With Tiger Woods, Nike cranked up its golf gear business without bothering to check two things: Adults aren’t as easily conned as kids, and street cred on golf courses, even among the young, is worthles
