  1. Played 18 last Friday & Saturday, and by hole 10 on day 2 my ankle started to really hurt. By the time I got to 18 I could barely put any weight on it. Saw an orthopedist on Tuesday that the pain/injury was because of fallen arches, aka flat feet. She recommended that I get orthopedic inserts for my shoes. Are there certain golf shoes that work better with inserts, or are they all about the same? I currently play in Skechers Go Drive. Thanks

    2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National - Paris, France

    College coaches study their opponents and know which of their players match up best. Ryder cup captains are great players, but are they great strategists?

    How about having one of the top college coaches help make the pairings?
  4. Any recommendations on affordable rain pants. It doesn't rain that much here, and I won't set out to play in the rain anyway. But sometimes I do get caught in it and would like to have a pair in reserve.
  5. Snell Get Sum. $20.99 + free shipping https://www.snellgolf.com/products/get-sum-optic-yellow?variant=27596083848
  6. I picked up a Swing Caddie sc200 a couple of weeks ago, and was wondering if anyone has used one with a practice net. The manual has an illustration that looks like it is being used with a net. But when I contacted support I was told it is designed to be used on the range only.
  7. I could never hit my 4i & 5i with any consistency, so I tried a 4h, which I ended up hitting worse. Until I got a lesson from my pro on how to correctly hit a hybrid. Now I carry a 3h, 4h & 5h which I hit with much more consistent, and with much much more confidence..
  8. Is there a Rules of Golf for Dummies book? I would like to carry a rules book with me when I play, but frankly I think we would spend more time trying to find and interpret a rule than actually playing. I just play for the fun of it with the same group of friends, but we do have rules questions from time to time.

    What tee to play from?

    This is what I was thinking about concerning pace of play. If playing from a tee that makes the hole a "long" par 3 or 4 for a player. The player might, and probably will, swing harder than normal to try and get the ball either on the green (par 3) or far enough (par 4) to have the second shot within range make the green. Sending the drive into the woods, heavy rough or out of bounds..

    What tee to play from?

    I agree, but am also thinking about pace of play. When the course is fairly crowded we find ourselves letting groups behind us play through.

    What tee to play from?

    This could be a very easy question, or could open a can of worms. How does one choose what is the correct tee to play from? My buddies and I always play from the white tees (usually around 70/123 rating) and shoot between 97-115.
  12. I found a reasonably priced G400 5H. Took it to the range for the first time a couple of days ago and was somewhat perplexed as to how well I hit it. Long and straight. I will hit the range again tomorrow morning and see if I really hit it better, or if the first time was a fluke. I did notice that my best results were when I took a very relaxed swing at around 80%. But I guess this is what I should be doing all the time, with every club.
  13. Still looking for a good pre-owned G400 Stiff flex.
  14. I hit my 4i & 5i 50% good 50% bad. Hybrids probably between 60/40 - 75/25.
  15. I have had a Ping G 4H for quite some time, but didn't keep it in my bag because I couldn't hit it. About a month ago I had my pro do our whole lesson on hitting a hybrid. Since then I have been hitting a majority of my shots with it long and straight. (And with much more confidence) So well that I bought a Ping G400 3H, with which I have had similar results. My question is, should I purchase a 5H and take the 4i & 5i out of my bag?
