  1. I voted to increase the hole size by a bit, not to make it more fun but to SPEED UP PLAY. In the clubs I play most groups take forever to finish their putts. Drives me nuts. For me, 6 inches would be perfect.
  2. In general a 12 degree driver will produce more backspin and this helps keep the ball straight. It works for me. Distance loss is marginal.
  3. Once you find an instructors that feels right I agree that to make it worthwhile you need 4 or 5 hours of lessons. If you just take one hour you may only get some aspirins for short term compensations that will not lead to long term improvement. This is my experience.
  4. I am no expert but the way I select my shaft weight is to close my eyes and swing one shaft weight and then another and simply decide which one felt more natural for my swing. For me it works. Once I choose shaft weight then I decide on flex.
  5. Same here. Tried to master the 3 wood for years without any success. Now it is driver plus 5 wood plus hybrid
  6. I would suggest a 5 wood. Very forgiving but still good distance
  7. As my swing has improved my tempo works better with heavier clubs. There is a limit though, and when a club is too heavy I can notice it too.
  8. Off topic, for years I used NXT Tour S balls, but now that my game has improved I switched to Pro V1 and couldn't be happier.
  9. A few months ago an errant caddie walked into the fairway out of the trees and my drive hit him right in the head. He was knocked unconscious for a couple of minutes. I thought he was dead. A couple of caddies drove him quickly to a nearby hospital. Doctor said he would be ok, except for some bad headaches for a few days. Within a week he was back working like nothing had happened. To be safe I hired a lawyer to be prepared in case the caddie sued me. Fortunately nothing happened and we get along just fine. He knows it was his fault. However, now I NEVER hit a ball unless I'm absolutely certain there's nobody even remotely close to where my ball could land. I don't ever want to have that experience again.
  10. I play the same course every sunday. Usually shoot high 80's. But when I go to new courses I usually shoot high 90's!!! I simply don't feel as comfortable as in my home course. The advantage I see in playing the same course is that I can easily assess any changes I do to my swing and determine if they were for the good or for the bad..
  11. Kylie Minogue is beautiful and has a perfect body, but she's only 5 feet tall!!!
  12. I only carry a pitching wedge (46 degrees) a gap wedge (50 degrees) and a sand wedge (56 degrees) I stopped carrying a lob wedge (58 degrees). I can pretty much do anything around the green with the 56 and it KEEPS MY LIFE SIMPLER.
  13. If it were a numbers game wouldn´t the US dominate? Much greater population in the US and far more golf courses than in Korea (18,000 golf courses in US and only 400 golf courses in South Korea). Perhaps american girls are more into other sports?
  14. I've been using the same glove for the last two years!!! It's really beat up but it has no holes and I feel I can grip the club just fine. Maybe it's time to get a new one!!!
  15. I have troubles with the 3 wood all the time. A 4 wood with 16.5 degrees of loft seems to be the answer. Same length shaft but 1.5 degrees more loft makes it a bit more forgiving.
