  1. Actually, 81 was my best score on that particular course, I shot in the high seventies every now and then, and 74 was my previous record. but it is attainable! keep working on your game, i know I have to keep working on mine to sniff a round like this again :-)
  2. Thanks everyone Haha!, No, I think I'll keep it... It's still uncommon for me to break 80. I also had three birdies (ties my personal best), 11 fairways, 11 GIR, 28 putts and 2/3 sand saves; all of those stats, I'm pretty sure are personal records :-). I was driving the ball pretty well, not too long but always in a playable position. But i think the biggest difference was my putter, which was lights out! I was getting gimmies even from 60 feet. The only putt I missed was in 17th, a short 6 footer for par, after my chip shot hit the flag :-( (it would it be a 71!). Oh, and some (or a lot, according to my playing partners) of luck. The 14th hole is a short par 3 (140 yds) with carry over water. I hit my tee shot fat, but the ball still cleared the water and found the green. I even won three greenies with that shot! First thing I did after finishing was take a picture of the scorecard (and I sent it to my brother, you know, brotherly "love" :-D). And man, I'm still high! Don't bring me down! :-)
  3. I had a great round today, three bogies and three birdies for a 72. This is the first time I hit in the seventies in this course (my previous best round here was an 81). My game looks like its coming together, a few weeks ago I shoot 74 and now this... I'm happy! Of course, at least until the next time I play and hit a 92 :-)
  4. Enjoy the game (stop throwing clubs) Go back to walking the course regularly Hit consistently in the mid seventies
  5. Hahaha!!! Excellent thread! Topper, there's a place on TV for you (between 3 and 5 AM); Elvis, relax!
  6. Thanks, I assumed those were this years statistics
  7. I was surfing the web, an came to this page: http://www.pgatour.com/2011/fedexcup/08/19/guidebook-statisticalleaders/index.html According to those statistics, TW is playing a well above average golf. He is in the top five of 11 of 20 categories, and leads 4 of them. How can he be as bad as everybody seems to think then? Is he that awful in the other categories?
  8. No necessarily in order: Woods: Titleist (best feel), TaylorMade, Adams Hybrids: Adams, Mizuno, Titleist Irons: Mizuno, Titleist, ... I bet Scratch, Miura, Epon, etc make great irons, but I have never used them, they look neat though! Wedges: Scratch, Mizuno, Titleist Putters: Titleist (Scotty Cameron), Ping, ... I can't think on another one I like
  9. Hi Jeff, I just found this thread, and the feedback is impressive. Do you still have any deals for us? Thanks, and I will be placing my order soon!
  10. +1. I miss the formatting options in the old editor (text size and color); is it possible to have it back, maybe with a few fonts to select from? In regards to the lists, it can be a good thing, but it can become messy quite easily. For example, I tried to add my MP-57 to my bag, and those clubs are listed as "Mizuno MP-57 with ProjectX 5.5", which is not my shaft, so now I have to add a new item for the same club. What about defining some ground rules? Like, for example, define only the head of the club (not the shaft, loft or number of clubs owned by any particular person). There is a space to add notes, where each individual can explain the particularities of his/her club(s).
  11. Quote: Originally Posted by JetFan1983 I don't even know what to make of the poster who said he broke 90 the first time he played. It's a pretty polarizing statement whether it's true or not. And if it is true, a claim like that deserve a more lengthy post and story behind it to at least attempt at explaining how it happened. I agree. Quote: Originally Posted by Shorty And...to be blunt, to say that you shot 88 on a proper golf course the first time round is just plain ridiculous. Just as ridiculous as this person expecting to be taken seriously. My point, exactly.
  12. I have a 15* deg 3w and a 17* hybrid. I am thinking on changing my 3w because I am hitting the hybrid better and almost the same distance. I think it is because the flew is a little weak for my swing, but with properly fitted clubs this is a good combination.
  13. If you're not playing golf... What's the purpose of having more money?
  14. I heard once that "people that walk don't make a round slow, slow players do it". A newbie will be slow riding or walking: anybody who takes 8 strokes to reach the green will slow down the pace, so carts are useless (to speed up pace, at least).
  15. I saw a thread where one of the posters claimed that he shoot 88 on his first time out on a course. I find this hard to believe, although there's people that thinks that this is possible. Me, I don't remember exactly (and it wasn't too long ago), but I estimate I was around 130~140 (and a dozen balls lost). And you?
