  1. I don't think you are being honest with yourself when you say you personally don't care how others dress on the golf course, because you say dressing in golf attire shows respect for those you are playing with and the business establishment. You say you like it when you respect the golf course establishment, but you don't care that others disrespect it?
  2. My thought is a beginner who's teaching himself the basics, how does he know the basics are actually right? He may be teaching himself over and over bad habits and ingraining them in such a way that it will harm his score as long as he golfs. What is important is finding an instructor who knows what he is doing and taking lessons from him.
  3. With the access of professional golfers who give quality lessons, why don't people take more lessons instead of complaining how bad their game is. I think many people would rather go out and buy new equipment that cost hundreds of dollars, thinking this will cure their ills, rather than to spend a little bit on actual golf lessons. Can you imagine how many quality lessons you could get for the cost of today's brand new driver? What I would like to know is a brief history how many years you have played and how many lessons have taken over the course of time. Have these lessons helped you? At age 65 I am satisfied with my game right now that I don't feel like I have to take a lesson to improve. I have been playing 45 years now and probably have taken lessons on five different occasions. How about you?
  4. I just bought the Bushnell Tour V5 Shift/slope, and the optics are fantastic. I use it for all approach shots. 2 yr warranty, great reviews.
  5. #1 golfer, # 247th on best dressed list. 😚
  6. Appropriate yes, but too much plain blue. You need to mix it up a little put some pizzazz in your attire, imho.
  7. There are several things people don't know when they buy CBD oil. Full spectrum hemp oil is probably the best you can buy because it also has other CB oils that support each other, whereas most CBD oil sold is not full spectrum. People just see CBD on the label and think it is all the same. People don't realize that there are CBC, CBG, and CBN oils as well in full spectrum CBD products. These other oils support CBD oil and make it more effective in it's work.
  8. I would imagine your swing tempo is changing with the longer irons. That being said, most higher handicap golfers struggle when swinging lower than a 7-iron. A 7-iron is the lowest iron I have in my bag then it turns into hybrids to take care off everything up to my 4 wood.
  9. I think our society is losing respect for ethical values these days. When I wear golf appropriate clothing to a private club it makes a statement saying that I respect the Club I am playing at. How much respect would it show is someone were and dirty old jeans while playing a round of golf and then going into the dining room and eating with that clothing on? Not very much from what I see. Rules, laws, ordinances promote a healthier society. I'm all for dress codes because it shows respect to other people and our society needs more respect.
  10. I wore a pair of these loud mouth shorts comboed with a real nice collared golf shirt that matched to a private club the other day. No one seemed to have any problems with them, but I wouldn't wear them to the dining room or something like that.
  11. I just splurged and purchased a Bushnell V5 Tour Shift rangefinder. I tried it yesterday and love it. The optics are very clear and the screen is very easy to read. I sometimes have a hard time holding it's still but manage okay.
  12. It's probably been talked over many times, but I would like some help understanding stronger iron lofts that are so common nowadays with major manufacturers. Is this just a ploy to make the average golfer feel like they are hitting it further, or is it a necessary component when creating a particular iron? Does today's technology demand weaker lofts to get a particular iron to work? Please explain this to me in layman's terms so I can understand.
  13. I think eventually this country is going to have to move on and start letting people go back to work and things like that or we won't have a country left to go back to. I think Coronavirus it's something we're going to have to live with for a while until the vaccine comes out and deal with it in a very responsible way as we have been over the last weeks or so. I still think the mortality rate is not that much different than the standard flu , it is just showing a higher mortality rate because nobody has been vaccinated for it like the regular flu. I would imagine some people have had the coronavirus and not even realize they had it. I think we are over panicking with this virus, not to minimize the importance of dealing with it, but I think we could deal better not panicking so much. I really think golf is the perfect game for people to be able to get out and play being that you are outside and not in close contact with others.
  14. I personally don't think this is much more dangerous than the flu itself. The numbers game that are being broadcast by Major news networks might not be accurate as people think they are. The percentage of fatalities has been touted as significantly different when in fact they may not be at all. When they give you a percentage of fatalities for the flu virus it's based on an estimated number of people who they think have gotten the flu, as well as an estimated number of people who have died from the flu. To be a statistic in the coronavirus you have to be tested positive for the virus, whereas they never do this testing for the flu, or at least not as exact. If you look at a map of each virus, the flu and the corona, you'll see the flu is much more widespread and devastating. I personally think that eventually the coronavirus will be on and equal Plateau as the flu virus. As far as how it affects my golf game, not at all.
  15. It would be nice if the usga would be as specific as they could with each particular drug, if possible.
