  1. I'm heading to Las Vegas with week to meet up with family. I'm wondering if any of you have some input on some of the better course at the lower end in pricing $40-$60 per player. Either 9 hole or 18 hole courses work for me. I'd prefer an 18 hole with carts, but a 9 hole walking course that's fun to play is fine with me too. Anyone have any recomendations?
  2. My current sand wedge has 15* of bounce and I really dislike using that club. I absolutely love my gap wedge which has, I think 8* of bounce. With the sand wedge, I end up skulling the ball at times (especially if I open up the club (which adds even more bounce)). This got me thinking... is 15* too much bounce for a SW at the courses I play at? I'm located in Southern California and the rough's around here are nothing like I see on the PGA or in teaching videos. Sand, at the courses I've been playing at, has been pretty firm for the most part as well. I'm thinking that for the most part, I'd
  3. I've been working lately ok getting better with my hybrid and I'm getting better every day. I know you're supposed to hit a hybrid like an iron... but I find I'm positioning the ball like I would my 3 wood (directly off the inside of my left heal). If I were to position this like I would a 3 iron, the ball position would be about 2 inches off the inside of my left heal. If I position the ball like I would when hitting a 3 iron, I almost always push the ball. But if I move the ball further up in my stance it goes straight. The problem with putting the ball that far forward in my stance is tha
  4. My girlfriend is going to buy a set of golf clubs and we're wondering if we should get a petite set (if available) or regular. I know we can always cut down the shaft, but I'm wondering what height most womens clubs are built for? My girlfriend is 5'2" and I think when she does get a set of clubs over the next couple of weeks, we may need to cut them down 1/4 to 1/2".
  5. Thanks. I just submitted a WTB thread and I'll see if anyone has anything to sell :)
  6. Thanks for the link. That set meets our needs and our price. Question though... are those even decent? We're looking at a used set of Adams A2 OS clubs on eBay right now and I feel like the ADAMS would be better quality. She may not continue to play this game, so we don't want to blow a bunch of money on clubs she may never use again, but if she does keep playing I don't want her being stuck with really low quality clubs. I think I've seen that set before, but the Wilson name keeps throwing me off :).
  7. My girlfriend has been getting more into golf lately and we've made Saturday day our day of golfing. She's currently using my old set up clubs which are my grandfathers old clubs from the 70's. Needless to say, they're too long and too heavy for her to even begin swinging correctly. She bought a new putter and a new bag recently, and now she's looking to buy some irons/hybrids to replace the old hand-me-down clubs. Her limit is $300 and she'd prefer to spend about $250. She's happy to buy a used set if she can find some good clubs at a good price. She's looking to buy all the clubs needed
  8. Depending on the distance to the hole, either SW or LW. I've been practicing at my local course hitting out of the sand and the pin is between 8-16 feet (depending on where you stand in the sand). With my 56.15 wedge, I'm hitting most of my shots past the hole. I'm finding it very difficult to get any loft on the ball and it rolls too far once it lands. My SW is great for 15-20 foot greenside bunker shots. But those really close ones I'm having a tough time with using my SW.
  9. Thanks for the replies guys. After reading your suggestions I have a lot of clubs to start testing. The Ping G10 and G15's seem like a favorite in this thread so I'll definitely spend some time with both of those. I've been spending the last few months hitting bothing but irons 2-3 days a week working on my swing and my iron game has greatly improved. Almost all my shots go about where I want them and it's made this game so much more fun. Now that I've got my iron swing down, I've just started to work on hitting with my 3 wood. This week has been great though because now that I put an emphis
  10. I'm curious to see what sand wedge and lob wedge lofts and bounce angles you guys have in your bag. I currently have a 56* SW with a 15* bounce angle and I'm in the market for a lob wedge. But now that I think about it, I'm thinking of getting a new SW as well with a slightly lower bounce angle. I just want to see what you guys keep in your bag to judge what I should be looking at. I'm pretty sure I'll stick with 56* and 60* wedges because it keeps a nice degree spacing with my PW and GW. But I'm really interested to see what bounce angles you use and why.
  11. I understand clubs are a personal preference thing... so I won't ask what the best driver out there is. But, I'd like to demo some drivers this week and I have no idea where to begin. I've actually never owned a driver and I've always gotten by with a 3-wood instead. I'm a high handicapper so I want something forgiving. I'd prefer to hit more shots straight and short rather then long and possibly off the course. I don't want a driver that corrects a bad swing (such as a draw). I typically slice a lot of shots with my 3 wood and I'm sure I'll do the same with a driver... but I'd rather learn
  12. My set only came with a PW and SW. I bought an AW (or GW) to fill the gap in my current wedges. I don't have a LW yet so I'm curious if I should stick with getting a Callaway for a complete matching set, or going with the Titleist Vokey which seem to be one of the best wedges out there.
  13. My current set of irons are Callaway X-22's (4-9 and a PW, AW, and SW). I've been under the impression that it's usually best to keep all your irons the same brand/model for more consistency. But viewing this board, it seems like a lot of people use a Titleist Vokey wedge (58* and 60*) even though it doesn't match their current iron set. The X-22 60* Wedge has a 11.0 bounce angle and the Vokey at 60.10* has a bounce of 10.0. From what I've been reading, a bounce of 10.0 is the most preferable for a 60* wedge. With that said... would you stick with the 60* X-22 to match all your other irons
  14. I'm curious how my wrists should be involved in my swing. Is the correct wrist involvement: 1.) Wrists don't sway from side to side. If the club is in front of you and you move only your wrists, the club should only be moving straight up and straight down. 2.) Wrists sway from side to side. If the club is in front of you and you only move your wrists, the club head moves from right to left. 3.) A mix of both of the above. With #2 above you could hit the ball using only your wrists. No body or arm movement is needed. With #1, you could only chop down at the top of the ball. I've been
  15. I've seen it mentioned and I see the pros hitting the ball on their downswing with their irons. I'm just curious how that happens. I know that with a 9 iron the ball should be placed between both your feet. As you move down to more distance irons the balls moves further up towards your leading foot. Without moving your hips you would always be hitting those balls on your upswing. I'm guessing then that to hit the balls on a downswing it would be due to both your hips moving forward and your hands moving in front of the ball before the club face makes impact? So while you may line up a shot
