  1. I'm 6'5", and have a very similar swing speed...I was fitted at 1" over and 3° upright... stiff shaft, works well for me. Might want to consider a midsize grip also, depending on hand size, but with your height I figure you'll need them.
  2. 16º and try to get it close, then scramble from there, likely a 4 or 5.
  3. Confidence in my woods has really been shot... never have I ever pulled a drive left... currently battling the pull hooks for the first time. [quote name="CR McDivot" url="/t/70872/bogey-golfer-only-thread-handicap-index-from-16-22-what-are-you-going-through-working-on-sob-stories/60#post_916668"] Oh come on... Where's you confidence (or sense of adventure)? [/quote]
  4. looking at it quickly... 175, 175, 150 assuming I'm playing from the forward tees.
  5. Really I should play it 5,5,7... two putt for par...
  6. I see it here as get there in 3, probably 4, two putts. On the tee I'd probably hit driver, pull hooks lately... attempt to get out with my 16°... screw that up... miss third into green... flub the pitch... twice... then three putt... so... 8ish.
  7. A little off the current topic, but reading the last post reminded me of something that's really been helping me. Aiming for the green, and not the flag. Obviously when the pin is in prime position, I aim for it, but if it's anything but in the middle I've been consciously aiming for middle green... before I'd always be aiming for the pin. Reducing my misses I guess you'd say.
  8. short game, short game, short game. My ball striking has improved considerably, so my emphasis has been on chipping, and putting. In the past I'd roll a putt too far past then miss the comeback putt. So I've been working on consistent putting. I've also been trying to play smarter. Why break out driver on the 4's that a 5 iron off the tee will work out well...
  9. Aren't most club contracts a minimum amount of clubs, plus logo bag?
  10. I've done this with 34 inseams but a hemmed pant looks so much better, lol. [quote name="AveoBigandTall" url="/t/70325/big-and-tall-golf-apparel-are-you-happy-with-it#post_912719"] also we have enough material left in the hem to let it out and achieve a better length for you[/quote]
  11. Oh, the slice. I've always been a major slicer. I've now tamed it down to a reasonable fade. Proper sized grips, a slightly stronger grip, proper setup, and the big key for me... clearing my hips...
  12. Welcome to the club! Just picked the game back up at 37 after a long layoff, haven't played this regularly since high school. I'd agree with leaving the driver out. Short game, short game, short game. 150 in is where I'm concentrating. I've personally found a very short muni course, 11 bucks a loop, where you only need irons. I have pretty high ceilings so I hang a sheet in a door way and hit foam balls into it. YouTube, and the library. I try and read as many golf books as possible... I figure the more info the better... I'd also suggest getting fitted if possible. I'm very tall, so a proper sized club was a must.
  13. I'll wear Dockers when it's cold... but I'll stick to my khaki cargo shorts pretty much all year... North Texas. I'd wear those khaki shorts made for golf but they are too short for my taste and too tight in the crotch for my junk... and yes I mostly leave my polo shirt untucked... don't think anyone where I play cares a whole lot.
