  1. New golfer (appx. 8 months) I have a set of Ping K-15 irons with regular flex graphite shafts. I am 6'4" and have very long arms. I feel uncomfortably hunched. I need advice on what shafts, what material and how long? Thanks.
  2. I played with two nice guys yesterday and we all shot poorly. The majority of their 2nd shots were from the WRONG fairway. I shot a 100 and asked them "what did you guys shoot?"... They both said 81. LOL- I think they don't count all the "nevermind, I'll drop a ball here" strokes. WOW>
  3. I played 18 in the cold'ish 42* yesterday. I shot 100. I could not drive or putt.
  4. You will improve as you play and learn more. Keep it fun and the scores will drop off. I am a new golfer and shot in the 125-130 range 3 months ago. I am now in the high 90's.
  5. Thanks for the input. I didn't know that 2* was the limit. I do open the face when I need more loft. I do better with bump & runs anyways... I'll just keep things as they are. Thank you again guys.
  6. I play Ping K15 irons and the set has 4 wedges. PW, SW, LW and Utility W. I don't play the Utility. My brother has a 64* wedge and it's really handy. Should I have it bent from 56* to the 64*? The distances I play these are: PW- 120'ish SW- 100'ish Lob- 80'ish
  7. I am completely obsessed/ consumed with golf lately but have always felt that watching golf was proposterous. I don't feel like that anymore of course. That being said.... I'm enjoying the WM tourney very much and I don't see how ratings and a broader array of enthusiasts could be a bad thing for any sport. What am I missing?
  8. Eagle Ridge GC in Raleigh,NC yesterday. I hit a 307yd drive perfectly straight down the fairway . It was the high point of my day.
  9. a pair of SNAKE EYES golf mits (over my golf gloves) and a mini- golf towel with club scrubber attached.
  10. This new bag has given me no issues. I don't put it in the back seat because it leaves marks on the leather (khaki in color) and it's too visible for thieves. I no longer consider this an issue. Thanks for the input all.
  11. exactly verbatim as I would have said I play/swing
  12. LOL @ the creative troll. This thread is one of the more interesting I've read in my few weeks here. :) No offense to the technically loaded conundrums of form, posture, balance etc... posters. To answer you "patrick"- I think Golf would be easier learned if people viewed it as "playing a game or having fun "skiing" instead of "I have to F'ing get this swing perfect or I'll never ever be great..... swing.... AAaaaarrrghgggghhhh F!!!!!!" Just my opinion.
  13. This is my second set. I bought a set of Spaldings in 99' when I worked at Pine Hollow GC in Clayton, NC. I haven't played since then (until 3 mos ago) so I have put together this set for under $300 and they all have graphite shafts Driver - Adams Speedline 10.5 with ALOLA RIP graph shaft. Strong 3 - Adams Tight Lies Strong 7 - Adams Tight Lies Hybrid Irons 3-5 - Adams IDEA 6-9 irons - Ping K15's PW,SW,LW, UW - Ping K15's (I alternate one wedge out) Putter - "Precision" with gold fiberglass shaft and JUMBO
