  1. Yeah, dead pull? Those should go far as well. Sounds like a smother hook.
  2. Of course. Like the totally common scenario your buddy had.
  3. I'm far from formal, but I think I the bare minimums of generally recommended golf attire aren't exactly school uniforms. I wear sandal spikes, and have reverted to tucking my shirt in, but I don't care what others do. I mean, I laugh at guys wearing denim shorts and tanks if I see them at the mall, so I'm also going to laugh at them on the golf course. I don't see this often, though. But I'd like to point out the hilarity of the initial question: Good for bad for the game? I mean, really? Really?
  4. A "be the right club today" story, almost. About ten years ago I was playing Totter Ridge, a course about 45 minutes east of Pittsburgh (iacas might know it). Tenth hole, and one of my playing partners hits first from the fairway. He says "Be the right club, bitch." I said, "You hit it fat. You're short." He lands on the fringe short of the green. He was like "How'd you know I hit it fat?" I said "I have eyes." So he starts swearing at me and I'm laughing. I had 145 to the pin. I hit a super solid eight iron and I say "Be the right club, bitch." One hop, into the hole for eagle. I ran circles around the two carts pointing at my buddy.
  5. It all depends on the schedule and weather, but I prefer afternoons. I like to tee off around noon after having a good lunch. This way I can drink a couple beers on the back nine without feeling guilty that it's 10:30am. Or, instead, stop at a watering hole after golf to have a couple with my partners at an appropriate drinking hour. Also gives me time in the morning to get errands or other necessary things finished. Now when I'm in Myrtle during the summer, I'm playing early morning. Like 730 or 800. Because 94 and humid gets rough midday. EDIT--Also, my home course offers discounts starting at noon and a further discount at 2pm. So sometimes we play later just to save $8-15. If it doesn't matter to anyone's schedule.
  6. Well that makes sense. I'm really interested to see how this will work. It obviously will do fine at private clubs that have an average and up number of rounds played. Elsewhere, I don't see how. Unless they use a geographic region and assume similar playing conditions.
  7. Okay. You, the helmet rule in golf guy, and guy who wants a different handicap for walkers go straight to hell.
  8. What? No. You want to even the playing field? Pony up the $15, Grandpa.
  9. I'll drop it off the green surface, but always just set it down gently when on the green. That putter trick is used by two types of golfers. Those who have bad backs (Woods) and old people.
  10. I voted he would. I figured the repetition would win out. Apparently not.
  11. At one point Johnny Miller was easily the best color man in golf. But he's gotten lazy in his old age, and his insistence on explaining every poor shot late in a tournament by citing nerves has become tiresome. Azinger is a good replacement.
  12. This may sound odd ( I have no idea if it is), but when I'm playing my best golf, I fade the ball with my longer clubs, hit it pretty straight with a 6 & 7 iron, and draw the shorter clubs. It's probably swing specific, but this has long been my pattern. EDIT--I think the draw is cooler, but personally have found the fade more reliable. The fade stops faster on greens. For me, this hasn't been a problem, because I'm drawing the ball with my shorter clubs, and they won't have unreasonable runout regardless.
  13. Unless you need something specific, I'd just load up on golf balls and gloves.
  14. Oh, I get that. I don't need the gamegolf thing though to judge club distances. There are plenty of charts out there that pretty much match perfectly with my club distances. When I misclub I almost always know why. The problem for me isn't using the wrong club, it's that whole hitting the golf ball thing. EDIT--I'm Longleaf purple 6 almost perfectly.
