  1. As I have said in many other posts, as a senior my own experience has been that it is much more important to switch to lighter shafts than to switch to senior flex.

    Heavy Air?

    I once read an article by Titleist that said that air temperature had the greatest effect on ball flight. It also said that air humidity had very little effect and the difference between playing in very dry air and very humid air (everything else being the same) is just a few yards.

    Titleist AVX

    Only reason I will buy AVX is that it comes in yellow. Otherwise I would continue using Pro V1.

    Baltic Putter with Swastika

    The Arian race as well as the swastika have an origin in India. The swastika, drawn pointing counterclockwise (as in the putter) can be found in many temples in India. It is a "prosperity" symbol. The Nazi used the symbol but drawn pointing clockwise.

    Titleist AVX

    There is a recent video by Rick Shiels. You can see it on You Tube. He compares all three balls on the course. Conclusions: short game all three balls are identical. Long game, AVX is slightly lower spin and slightly lower flight.

    Phil Mickelson Rule

    Even in a water hazard you can go back and hit again from the last position with one shot penalty.

    When does a fade/draw turn into a slice/hook?

    To me there is a big conceptual difference. If the ball starts RIGHT of target and then RETURNS to target it's a draw. If the fall starts at target and curves to the left of target it's a hook even if it was only a few yards. Same concept for a fade and slice.
  8. I really like the 14 way dividers so each club is always in the same place. Not all brands have the same quality of manufacture. Titleist bags are very well made.
  9. Fifty percent of the club is the shaft.. Make sure you get a shaft that fits your swing. In my experience, shaft weight is a lot more important than shaft flex.
  10. "Just like my guitars and tools, golf clubs are tools and should be used. I have thousands invested in tools, thousands in clubs and tens of thousands in instruments and while I don't abuse them, they're not queens." My exact same feeling. Very well said.

    Lie angle

    You already know this, but lie angle is very dependent on posture. For years I thought I needed 2 degrees upright until I took a lesson that showed me I had poor posture. Once I fixed my posture I could use neutral lie angles with no problem.

    3 Wood Recommendations

    Yes, 4 wood may be a better choice. 16.5 degrees. Even some Pro's carry 4 woods instead of 3 woods. More forgiving and almost same distance.
  13. Cart Bag with 14 dividers
  14. In my view, The real objective is not to take a divot. The real objective is to compress the ball. For me, as long as I hit the ball with the shaft leaning forward I am compressing the ball, producing a nice feel off the face, nice flight and nice sound. Like when you are raking leaves , as long as the shaft is leaning forward, the movement is good.
