  1. It’s worth noting that the OP isn’t “average”. He’s a 4 hcp, and likely puts that 58° wedge to good use when need be...
  2. Give it another 30 years. Wait until you’re 62, live in Florida, and play 120+ rounds a year. I can play 36 holes in 90°+ riding. I can’t do that very often walking any more, but I doubt that too many people would deem me medically unfit. I enjoy seeing people enjoying the game, regardless of how they get from one shot to the next. Well, as long as they get there quickly!
  3. It seems a bit arrogant to think that the way you or I enjoy the game is somehow better than the way someone else does. You’re young. Enjoy it while you can. Some day you may find that riding allows you to continue to enjoy the game as you get a bit older. People can love the game, whether they walk or ride... Just sayin’...
  4. Assuming your iron gaps are fairly normal and consistent, your realistic choices are the 3-wood or the 2-iron. Pick whichever one you get the least use out of.
  5. I thought your 3-wood covered that. Good golfers love to show off their 2-irons. I know I did. Until I realized that it didn’t really pay its way in the end... Just a thought...
  6. What does the 2-iron do for you? I finally dumped mine years ago from a bag that looked a lot like yours...
  7. Played 36 holes on Tuesday and Thursday, 18 on Friday, and 27 yesterday. We’re averaging well under 3:00 for 18 holes these days. I guess there’s at least a little bit of a silver lining to this particular cloud!
  8. Any explanation for the 9 holes only restriction? That’s weird...
  9. We’re lucky that we’re still open, but if they were to close down I would expect to still pay dues. Maintenance would still need to be kept up in order for the course to open in good shape when allowed to do so, and I’d like to see the staff continue to receive some pay to help ensure that they come back too.
  10. I switched to Bridgestone Tour B RXS from ProV1’s a couple of years ago. They’re a little longer for me and still work well for me around the green.
  11. There are also very low deflection wood shafts these days... You're right though. For those of us who have been playing a long time, there’s certainly an adjustment curve. It probably took me 2 months to transition comfortably to a low deflection shaft after playing with standard shafts for 35 years or so. But, that’s significantly different than the change in golf club technology. In order to take advantage of the changes in equipment technology, there’s little or no need to actually change your swing or adjust how you aim. In fact, you can choose equipment that better suits you current swing and tendencies, rather than having to adapt to the equipment itself.
  12. Technological improvements include a lot more innovations than simply increasing COR...
  13. Good luck! Don’t beat yourself up too much though, it’s much harder than it might sound, ever for pretty good players. You might want to set no 7’s as an interim goal along the way...
  14. Nike Covert Driver TV Commercial, 'Play in the Now' - iSpot.tv Don't get hung up on old technology, switch to the Nike Covert Driver.
  15. Of course, the prohibition is only for the actual day of competition. You’re welcome to do anything you like the day before. If you’re particularly observant, you may even find that the pin positions for the tournament have been marked on the greens the day before...
  16. Surely the latter. He’s still alive after all!
  17. Who on God’s green earth would try to make carbonara without eggs?! 😱 Probably the same people that use bacon instead of pancetta! I swear I typed mine before I read that!
  18. I do prefer a pasta with a little more surface area than spaghetti for a thinner sauce like Cacio e Pepe. Sometimes all you have is all you have though...
  19. Nice! I prefer a Carbonara, but agree, Pecorino. Love it!
  20. The governor down here just implemented a state-wide stay at home order. Fortunately, golf courses remain on the list of allowable, essential activities, and will stay open, with continued social distancing and touch point guidelines in place!
  21. Nope. The big change here has been to single rider carts. As a result, rounds are even quicker. Played 36 holes in 5:45 today as a 4-ball. Good stuff!
  22. Skins are simply an addition to whatever regular game is being played at the time. Generally anyone who wants to participate throws $10 or some such into the pot, and at the end of the day, the pot is split by however many skins that “hold up”, i.e. a birdie or better on a hole that isn’t matched by anyone else in the pool. Skins has no affect at all on the actual game/comp itself...
  23. The only winners, are those that have the lowest score on the whole by themselves If two or more players both have birdies or even lower on any given hole, then there’s no skin paid on that hole…
