  1. I would say just try a few sleeves of a few different balls you are interested in. Most golf ball companies have info about their golf ball lineup and how much spin you should expect from each ball. Pick a mid priced, higher spin ball and see if it helps you. My recommendations would be to try the bridgestone e5 (about $26 per dozen) and the titliest nxt tour (about $30 per dozen).
  2. Hi All, I'm taking a trip to the Rutland VT area, and I'm wondering if anyone has a course to reccomend. I have been looking at Neshobe Golf club and Green Mountain National. I know GMNGC comes up on most lists I've seen, but Neshobe looks like it could be a better value. I would be playing with my girlfriend, so a challenging but female friendly layout would be nice. I'm sure all she cares about is having some good scenery. Any input would be appreciated!
  3. This is why I NEVER play without compression shorts. I'm a pretty skinny guy, (6', 170) and this is still an issue for me if I just wear regular boxers.
  4. Put your change in your left pocket. Go on, do it. Now, tie your left shoe in a double knot. Right now, do it! Turn the hat backwards. Turn your hat around. Do it, ohio lefty! Take this tee and stick it behind your left ear...
  5. it depends greatly on your ball trajectory. Think about it, if you hit your wedges Sky high, and they are coming almost straight down when they land, a downhill target will barely make any difference at all.
  6. First round of golf I ever played was at Miacomet GC on Nantucket. They recently renovated all of the original 9, i can't wait to get back there. I got in a round at Waverly Oaks, which is set to close this month (if it hasn't already). I'm pretty sad about that. Other than that I have only played some of the mediocre layouts. Far corner was my home course last year. Bradford CC was a quirky little track, but I've heard bad things about its conditions this year. The Middleton Par 3 course off 114 is a fun little course.
  7. I would love some opinions about rain gear, specifically pants. Brands/models you like. Necessary features. Advice on fit. etc... I'm looking for my first set, and I'd like to do it right, but I'm also hoping not to kill my bank account. thanks.
  8. I do not mind water boarding, but I want some form of official regulation or overview process implemented to strictly govern its use. Probably unrealistic... Q - Whats your favorite book.
  9. I hit this course up last week. Fun layout, I really enjoyed it. Definitely not a true links design at all, but there were some fun shots to be made. Greens were absolutely lightning fast. Check it out if you can.
  10. You know, I used to really blow up on the golf course. I would throw clubs, or just slam the toe of my wedge into the ground. It really wasn't good and certainly didn't help. Most of all, I wasn't really able to enjoy myself, and my playing partners had to suffer through it. Now I rarely have a problem, and when I do I tend to handle it much more effectively and privately. I guess its about attitude, and training yourself to think more effectively. I have spoken to people before who get really angry. My advice is to simply make a decision not to let bad shots get to me. My method is to wear sunglasses when I play, and when the glasses are on, nothing gets to me. Think Duval in his prime. Invariably people tell me that they "can't just become a robot" and they can't "just decide not to get angry". This is one of those situations where if you think you can or you think you can't, you're right. Someone suggested Rotella. This would be a great book for you to read, as he really focuses on our ability to choose how to think. I know when I read the book it really validated my above method for coping with my fiery overly competitive side.
  11. That is awesome! I wish I had a well used putter worth doing this to. Looks totally awesome.
  12. Never played it but an irish guy i was paired up with the other day suggested I check this course out: http://www.thelinksatunionvale.com/ I'm heading up on Friday.
  13. I love it... No chance that there is no golf ball in flight at any given moment. I mean there is one flying at almost any given time at the range when I'm there. As for when this happened... i don't know. Seems hard to imagine that this was the case during WWII. I would think the 50s would be a decent guess, but i don't know much about the game's popularity over history.
