  1. Well, there are different ways to deal with this kind of pressure. I personally find that not focusing on the outcome and getting out of your own way so that you execute with the minimum amount of tension, you'll do better. Perhaps if your livlihood depends on it, you would feel different. I'm not wired that way, personally. Yes, putting yourself in the situations where you have to execute and having the practice to back it up is a very good plan. No doubt about it. Many successful people come from that.

  2. I voted no. Good teachers look for the way to instruct their students and that varies from student to student. Good students look for things to listen to that compliments what they need to know, or what they can understand. If you don't understand it, or it's nothing like what you do, don't listen. But it might help someone else. Just don't count on it meaning something to you.

  3. Masters and Torrey or Pebble.

    That's my vote as well. British Open next because it's usually the truest test, IMO. Let the weather decide except when they bastardize a course. I do love the US Open, but feel the harsh setup takes away from the drama since so many people are out of it since it's hard to make up shots. Great tourney, but they go too far, too often. I love watching the west coast swing.

  4. Playing from the green tees on my home course is actually a lot of fun. If you are a better golfer all of a sudden you have things like hybrids to par 4 greens and tricky shots on some par3s. Get out there and play them with new people to bring them into the game!

  5. Driver: TaylorMade RBz 9.5 3-wood: TaylorMade RBz 3-wood Hybrid: Cobra 3h baffler Irons: Mizuno MP-69 4-PW Wedges: Titleist Vokey 50.12, 56.14, 60.10, 64.07 Putter: Scotty Cameron Newport 2.5 That's technically 15 and I have a R11 adjustable 4-wood as well. Based on conditions I take out either the driver, 64 degree wedge or swap the 3wood for the 4wood. The ideal set is 5-PW with all the other clubs above since I rarely use my 4-iron where I normally play and can make due with a shortened hybrid.

  6. I used one for a longer time was was inconsistent. My 3H is more reliable and goes about the same as it used to. I think if you are already playing one and it works, go for it. If you don't like hybrids, go for it. But I agree with an earlier poster, today's 3-irons are yesterday's 2-irons and the trend is towards hybrids now. My last two sets I haven't even gotta 3-iron. One because the manufactorer didn't include it in the set and the second by choice since it was a custom set. I'd rather take something off my hybrid than swing a 3-iron nowadays.

  7. Definitely speak with a professional. For years I assembled different wedge sets and went solely by loft. Now I am lucky enough to belong to a club where I play 80% of my golf and I was able to figure out the best set of wedges for my game based on both loft and bounce. I have a lot of shots off lush/wetter conditions and it was a consideration in what I purchased. I happen to love Vokey wedges. I went for a spread with my gap and sand wedges that favored those conditions, but still were service-able in other conditions. Also, take into account where you play because you might want to have a super high lob wedge. THIS year I am putting in a 64 degree wedge specifically to throw it higher on pitch and chip shots. I'm also insane about stats and reviewing what recent rounds are like, so I tinker with my overall setup. But so some analysis and see what works best. Also, what kind of shots you struggle with and what might help with those. This horribly long winter I am reviewing the Pelz wedge system which is three different shots with each wedge. If you have holes, use the loft on your wedges to help. Btw, doing it myself resulted in 60 degree wedge longer than my sand wedge and completely different styles of wedges that gave me trouble in nailing down distances. I think consistency is key with wedges, just like your iron set.
