  1. I married and made mine... My usual partner is the wifey. Other wise my sons or daughter. I know guys with regular games. I'm definately jealous. Just waiting for the invite. I've always wanted a group of golfing buddies and a regular cash game.
  2. 5-6k yards around here at most of the locoal courses around here and you are playing the blues or whites (mens). What kind of stroke/slope ratings are the courses youre playing? The three courses I usually rotate around here are 69/115 ish.
  3. Tee-ing forward is an interesting subject to me. Around here I never hear tees being refered to by color or distance. Most courses have three or four sets, which most people refer to as "ladies, seniors, men's, and tournament tees" this bugs the hell out of me. I do my best to correct people who call them "ladies tees" to me it sounds sexist, and ignorant. I have wanted to try the red tees for several reasons but have held off out of fear that buddy's and other golfers treat it as taboo and ridicule a man for teeing it forward. (a little about me) I am a high handicapper.
  4. I'm in the same boat. I'm a high handicapper. Struggling with my mental game, but I have found out I play my best golf when most get nervous. First tee is ALWAYS my best drive. And anytime I play through a group my shots surprise me. I don't know if its the distraction, or if for that moment I stop thinking of the million things that cause me to shank a shot and have one single swing thought... "Don't f up!"
  5. My father inlaw does. A while ago his clubs got stolen, and that was the first club he replaced. He loves his killer bee driver. He's twenty-five years older then me and keeps up with my distance, and is 10x straiter than me. Maybe he's on to something.
  6. Any sign shop could do it. Make sure they use premium automotive grade vinyl (meant to withstand car washes, weather and constant sun) it will last as long as you want it on there. Hundreds of color options, unlimited font or design options... I have done signs for 17 years now. I was considering personalizing some of my own equipment. I have customized my waterfowl gun, my archery equipment... It all holds up well.
  7. I believe you... Just surprised. The school my kids go to, the school my 12 year old plans to golf for, is a division 2 school who wins regionals and qualifies for states. Last year they had one golfer who placed. They are good. They compete against other schools of equal tallent. A scratch golfer is a rarity. Obviously the tallent pool is much smaller when your state has months of non Golfable weather.
  8. I am sure it is. It is really amazing to me the difference between here in southern Michigan, and states with warmer climates allowing year round golf as well.
  9. I definately understand that pressure. But if you look at their scoring averages they are all above par. I recently viewed UofMs men's golf stats... (keep in mind they are probably one of the lowest ranked big ten teams) This years roster is full of golfers all have scoring averages well above par. Then I read about the three newest recruits for next year... All three high school golfers, 2 hs state champions, one ranked number one in the state for Michigan (40 in the country) another ranked number one in Montana (48 in the country) they have scoring averages of 73 and 74. Reading those numb
  10. Those numbers seem really low to me. I understand its relative to the course played, and pressure of the round. Food for thought... http://www.mhsaa.com/Portals/0/Documents/BGF/2012%20LP/2012-Boys-D1.txt That is a link to the two day results for Michigan's 2012 hs division 1 boys golf state finals. Of the two days, only two guys had rounds breaking par. This is the best high school golfers in the state.
  11. Wilson Tom Kites. Shot the best round of my life with them, and have been forever chasing that number since.
  12. Make my strait drives long, and my long drives strait. Last season it was one or the other for me. The second half of the season I reached my golf goals while dropping my driver completely. Next season I plan on bringing my driver back, and averaging better than bogie golf. My last four 9 hole rounds for 2012 were all 49-49-46-46, I am hoping to shave a few off that.
  13. Been there... Years ago i used to have a song I would keep on repeat in my head. I did this for a while before I even noticed I was doing it. When I would feel like the wheels were coming off, I would think of the song, maybe even hum it. Then try to go into swing auto pilot have zero swing thoughts, trust the practice will take over, and focus on that song. Funny thing is this year during league my wife was on fire, hitting really well. Out of the blue she confided in me that'd she was doing the exact same thing. I don't know where she got it, or where I got it from... But it worked.
