  1. Played my first round with it yesterday. I upgraded from the G8 so there is a learning curve. My initial impression is that the display is much nicer and easier to read. Distance pointer is easier to use. Much easier to keep score. I tested the launch monitor feature against one my pro uses at his indoor facility and the club head speed is right on. Just downloaded the Garmin Golf App and paired with my smartphone, but haven't delved into it much.
  2. I just started using the new Garmin G80 and was wondering if anyone out there is using one, and their experiences with it.
  3. I know the G410 Plus has more left adjustments, but wondering if the head will work on a G400 shaft?
  4. 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
  5. 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?
  6. How about having one of the top college coaches help make the pairings?
  7. 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.
  8. Snell Get Sum. $20.99 + free shipping https://www.snellgolf.com/products/get-sum-optic-yellow?variant=27596083848
  9. 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.
  10. 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..
  11. 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.
  12. 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..
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
