  1. Maybe 6 weeks for putting. I’m 72 in excellent condition. I had a triple bypass on June 9th. Both my cardiologist and the surgeon we definitive that 12 weeks was the minimum for full swing. I started walking and progressed to very light resistance workouts. At about 6 weeks I was putting. I drove the cart for my wife and placed my ball wherever she wound up on the green. From there it became a putting contest, we’re very competitive. At 8 weeks I started short swings with my 54 and progressed to 3/4 shots with the same club for the next three weeks. Also at 8 weeks my Dr cleared me for bike riding, swimming and everything but lifting more than 35 Lbs and, of course, the full swing. I hit my 12 week point last week and played an easy but tentative 9 with my wife on Monday and hit balls the next day with no issues. We’re playing 18 this afternoon. Good luck, the better shape you’re in going in the better your recovery but expect the first few days to be very hard but do your work and you’ll be back.
  2. Try the REI private label pants, I have a pair and they’re great for light conditions. Not Gore-Tex but very affordable, breathable and weatherproof. If you want high end that will last forever look at Arcterex SL offerings.
  3. I have SM6 58 M8 as a well as SM7 54 M8 and a SM7 50 F8. Love all three, they have taken strokes off my game! If you can find SM6’s with the right grind and bounce I think you’ll be fine. The feel is essentially the same. For me anyway.
  4. My answer would be to “grow up”, as long as they are not slow players they are just trying to enjoy the game, albeit without your talent.
  5. I dodn’t watch either but Shotjockers is a better fit. Coming from a true blue Bruins fan!
  6. $250 for the Mid Ocean Club on Bermuda, totally worth it. I was a guest in a group at Trump National Palace Verde (Los Angles) @$275.00 and would never go back for any price. Consider? Probably not much more than $250. It would depend.
  7. I had a full right knee replacement in mid January and plan to start hitting again next week. 6 weeks of intense PT and I feel ready to go. Dr and physical therapist agree. The knee has been bad for so long that my right leg was visibly atrophied and significantly weaker than the left. I'm 68 and have been playing regularly for 6 years, always with an unstable right side. I play to an honest 21 index. It's been as low as 18 but hovers these days around 21. Home course it challenging, Mountaingate CC in LA. I don't know about starting from scratch but I'm definitely going to see one of the pros to get started on the right track. I look forward to seeing what golf is like with a right leg that works. I have high hopes. Also bought a copy and have read Lowest Score Wins during my recovery. Head full of good thoughts.
  8. It could be subliminal, I've always enjoyed him as a golf commentator but find the recent Arizona/Scottsdale commercials to be a real turn off. Maybe that's it? I like him behind the desk but the guy in those ads is an asshole.
