  1. No I don't, like others I may do some partial wedges. The only time I'll leave early is if I'm getting fatigued and am masking mistakes. No point in doing bad reps.

    Removing Lead Tape

    This makes sense. Turns out it will actually be a while before I can get my hands on the XR head so I'll have time to mull this over. Thanks for the responses!

    Removing Lead Tape

    Ok, two very different answers there. So it's somewhere between 'having to grind it off' and 'it peels right off' haha. If it does peel off, I have no problem using a little goo-off to get some leftover adhesive off. Also, I'm not above putting a bunch of duct tape on the bottom of the club head for the day just to get the weight right.
  4. I'm considering testing a Callaway XR16 driver head against my Great Big Bertha, but the issue is that my shaft is 3/4" shorter than stock and the GBB head is hot melted. So if I put my shaft on the XR head, I'm guessing the swing weight will be way off. I could easily add lead tape to it to match swing weights but if I pass on the XR, will the tape come off easily? I'd be borrowing it from my brother who, while not all that into golf, probably wouldn't be a fan of all the ugly tape stuck on there. I'm also open to other suggestions for adding temporary weight.

    Shortening Driver Shaft

    To me, the change in feeling is noticeable. I had my driver shaft shortened 3/4" and a few months later the lead (or whatever material) power in the head fell out. I took it somewhere else and at that point swing weight was down to C9 if I remember correctly. They added hot melt to get the swing weight back up to D3 and having taken a few waggles before/after, the feel was quite different. To answer your question, I'm quite happy with the hot melt route.

    @Weirdgolf another option is for you to play 'best ball' with an experienced partner. That way it doesn't matter if you're hitting bad shots, you just pick up and go to your partner's ball. It gets you accustomed to the tee box jitters and playing on a full sized golf course in general without feeling the pressure of having to keep up the pace. Keep taking lessons and once you start hitting a few more good shots start playing your own ball.
  7. If you're trying to add weight to the head, you can have a shop add hot melt to make the head heavier.

    I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    Favorite TV Show(s)

    I watched The Americans religiously since the first season. I have strange interest in Cold War era history so that only added to the fact that it was a wonderfully done show. I'll feel empty inside once March rolls around and there isn't another season premiering...but I can rest easy knowing they finished the story before the show went to shit.
  10. An old friend of mine just moved from Colorado to Lexington Kentucky. May be a good reason to organize something out that way or between the two of us.

    2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National - Paris, France

    I actually didn’t hear her say that! It must have been while I was commenting how terrified I’d be if I was her mother.

    I was a huge fan of how he handled the crying toddler before his attempted up and down late on Sunday at The Open. She stops crying before he addresses the ball and starts back up before the shot so he steps back laughing at the whole thing. Could have gotten upset but was a good sport about it. Kudos to him. I'm ashamed I'll probably not watch much of the Ryder Cup since I'll be on vacation and mostly being in national parks won't help either...
  13. Have you or are you planning on taking lessons? You'll get a lot more out of practicing the right bits based on lesson feedback than just doing reps. When I first got more into golf, I made the mistake of getting a year membership at a cheap course to play as much as possible. All I did was ingrain bad habits.

    I guess Fleetwood went out early. Nice to check in and see him at the top of the leaderboard.
