  1. Using 8 clubs this year

    2 clubs I almost never use without some manipulation of what is the right club are the 4 and 5 irons. I rarely use my 6i and possibly could push my 7i a bit. Don't use my 56 and GW all that much either. So, I think a bag of 9 clubs would be pretty easy for me to get down to. I'd have to think about the other club? That would leave me with 60, PW, 9i, 8i, 7i, hybrid, 3W, driver and putter. 9 is pretty easy.
  2. 160 yards to break 90?!

    Spellchecker took out “took out all the clubs he can’t hit out of the bag” then hit conservatively.
  3. One thing you should include in any conclusion is that people responding to this poll have at least broken 80. Also, many people start golf late, and for them, it's not realistic to have a significant number of them that can even break 80.
  4. 160 yards to break 90?!

    There's really no debate, if a 100s shooter takes all the clubs he hits really bad or swings conservatively he can probably shoot bogey golf. It's good for training, but not for scoring lower. Why not just back off the driver? Hit a slow drill swing with a driver and most men can knock it easily 160 yards straight.
  5. 5 reps with a minute pause in between full swing reps with a couple less aggressive warmup reps. Stretching hamstrings. Working on slow movements through the transition. Tai Chi slow with weight shift incorporated into movement. Also keeping the lead wrist well pronated. Full coil backswing, lead arm straight getting past parallel. I have to focus on retaining the C-spine posture. Used a roller to work the upper back/shoulders, lats, glutes and calve muscles. Power walk 4 miles.
  6. The difference is one opinion wants things to stay the same and the other is either the game gets bifurcated or we all end up waiting another 20 minutes a hole as courses get backed up 15 to 30 yards per shot by average men hitting 180 yards off the tee.
  7. 15 reps with a minute pause in between full swing reps with a couple less aggressive warmup reps. Stretching hamstrings. Working on slow movements through the transition. Tai Chi slow with weight shift incorporated into movement. Also keeping the lead wrist well pronated. Full coil backswing, lead arm straight getting past parallel. I have to focus on retaining the C-spine posture. Used a roller to work the upper back/shoulders, lats, glutes and calve muscles. Hit the regular mat range first, yesterday evening, got my timing down then went to the grass range. Despite the cold the balls seemed to go my normal distances. Was happy to be hitting more solidly off the uneven grass this time. Knocked my 7i around the blue flag. The wind kicked it more right so I tried opening the face to get a fade. Got one to work really well, and the rest, not so well. So, even only doing this 5 minute thing helped me maintain a semblance of a swing when I couldn’t get out.
  8. And keep them frozen just to make sure they don’t swing too fast.
  9. And leveled off around 2002. Not nitpicking, but that’s kind of significant.
  10. Practicing with Long Irons

    You might try a 6i or 5i instead? 3i is lower loft as well so it helps to have a higher swing speed.
  11. Judging distance

    You can get pretty much anything under $100 retail for 50 to 150 yards. I’d go to a discount Golf store or sporting goods place, and you might be able to get a good one for $80. I have a $500 Sig Sauer Kilo2000 because I use it for shooting. Hunting pins is not such a good idea with GPS. Conditions affect position accuracy.
  12. For some reason, I thought they were the same, but I guess not?
  13. 10 reps with a minute pause in between full swing reps with a couple less aggressive warmup reps. Stretching hamstrings. Working on slow movements through the transition. Tai Chi slow with weight shift incorporated into movement. Also keeping the lead wrist well pronated. Full coil backswing, lead arm straight getting past parallel. I have to focus on retaining the C-spine posture. Used a roller to work the upper back/shoulders, lats, glutes and calve muscles. Doing more roller work and stretching.
