  1. I've had 2 old fashion fittings in my lifetime. Old fashion meaning no monitors or high tech equipment. Basic measurements and a pro watching me hit various clubs on the range. Both pros were at my club and very familiar with my swing. Both recommended standard lofts and lies. As I have aged I moved from stiff to regular shafts on my own. I'm sure it would behove me to get a proper fitting as things change over time but no head pro any longer where I play. I could drive a good distance to get it done but I have been satisfied how my equipment has performed over the years and how it performs today.
  2. This tournament playing like a major. Tight fairways with tall rough. Plus cool air today with some wind. The distance debate dies down with tough conditions.
  3. Got to be more than just wore down from last year. Would be a shame if he couldn't defend at the Masters.
  4. Shot a 79 yesterday with 3 birdies. Played sloppy early but better as the day progressed. Had a gimmie birdie on the last hole which was nice as my team was down 1 stroke going into the hole and they bogeyed so we ended up winning the match(4 ball). Started to hit my irons better which is the best part of the day as that is one of my goals for the year....to be a better iron striker. Going to take some time but saw some positives.
  5. I watch a little on tv and have been to LPGA events. The only thing that puts me off sometimes are the overweight ones. I know......that sounds terrible but I want players to look like athletes. Same holds true for men. And I do think more Americans would be a plus for the tour, but you have to earn your way on tour. It's not going to be given to you.
  6. Like many, two years ago I couldn't see him winning again. Who would have thought he could have overcome his back issue? I voted a couple of wins this year but no majors. He certainly could win one tho. Just going with the odds.

  8. Same here. And seeing that i'm old(65) and all my golfing buddies are in the same age bracket, that usually means the short tees. Which is more than fine this time of the year when it's always wet and sloppy. But during the summer when it's hot and dry, I will back up to the next set of tees. We usually half 1/2 that will do that with the 70 and overs staying on the short ones.
  9. He was already hard to watch.....more so now.
  10. I have had a 7w before and liked it. I now carry a Rogue X 4 hybrid that works similar to a 7w. I really like it as the X model is a little bigger than most hybrids but a little smaller than a 7w. Works for me.
  11. Good deal. I'm not married so can buy what I want but I'm a little too cheap for all that. I guess if you piece all together my clubs may approach $1500. But I buy irons, hybrids and woods at different times so it doesn't seem to hurt as bad. Ha.
  12. Two goals for 2020. 1) To become a more consistent putter. I tend to pull the putt left and to overcome this I know I need to lighten my grip and rock my shoulders more. Got to take my hands more out of play. 2) To hit more pure iron shots. I have a tendency to hang back on my right side and either hit fat shots or thin ones. Not all iron shots but more than I like. To overcome this I'm going to try and follow Clay Ballard's advice in this video......
  13. I'm 65, healthy with very few aches and pains. Been playing golf for over 50 years and still enjoy the game. Life is good. 🙂
  14. I've played 8 times so far this year and it seems like I haven't played much at all due to the rain we've had. Not much cold weather just tons of rain. I know....won't get much sympathy from the one's up north.
