  1. How come some drivers such as Mizuno and Tour Edge have grooves on the entire club face?
  2. The reason they are so strongly lofted is because they have to be based on who the club is for. The vertical center of gravity is at the bottom of the club face to help these players hit the ball in the air. These game improvement clubs are meant to reduce slice and get the ball in the air, so they need to offset and still have the club as easy to hit as possible. So far the loft of the club as been the choice.
  3. Needing to find a yardage marker for my 4th shot on a par 3. But actually a drive in the trees, punching out, missing the green on my third shot.
  4. http://www.golfio.com/Images/product...oHybridFW2.jpg How about this?
  5. I think it depends more on the individual distances on each hole. For me when you do 36 x 5i distance I get 7200. I would not feel comfortable playing from this distance as any course that goes out to 7200 yards is going to be extremely difficult and Im sure that there would be a couple of holes that a just too long for me. However when you divide 7200 by 18 you get 400, this is the average length of each hole. 400 yards Im comfortable with, but not a course that is 7200 yards.
  6. Thats because his new 9 iron is the same as his old 7 iron.
  7. Just checking you shoot about 3 over for 9 holes on a par 3 course and sometimes better
  8. I have a swing speed at about 110 and the longest ive ever hit the ball on a normal striaght out hole is 345, with a tailwind and the ball landed on a sprinkler head as it took a huge forward bounce when it landed. A question for other sandtrap members how many others here seem to hit a different driver better when you are struggling with your own?
  9. In just about everyone of these stories they seem to describe the way professional golf is played.
  10. I hope you have worked on your putting since then.
  11. I also umpire little league and I just want to go hit some pitches
  12. I gotta say his swing looks a lot better before he worked with Hank Haney
  13. My guess is that you do "go at it harder" than me because I asked the people I got paired up with if it looked like I was swinging really hard because I was trying to make sense of how far I was hitting the ball and the said it looked smooth and I was making really good contact.
  14. I dont think anyone needs more than a 45" driver shaft unless they are really tall.
  15. nope I have the set up that I feel comfortable with, I dont want or need any other clubs than the ones that are in my bag.
  16. I gotta ask why do you use the 909f3's when you seem to want more forgiveness in clubs than workability? The G15's are some of the easiest irons to hit and the 909f3's are some of the hardest fairway woods to hit in my opinion.
  17. Since last year I have gained 20 yards all around my disances are as follows: Driver- about 270 3 Wood- about 250 2 hybrid- 230 4- 210 5- 200 6- 190 7-180 8-170 9- 160 PW- 150 GW- 135 SW- 115 LW- 100 Im am 17 6'1 and 220 pounds, honestly I find it scary that I am hitting the ball so far at a young age. Has anyone else had a similar experience to mine? Please no comments that are you dont hit the ball that far.
  18. I typically dont play better because most of the time its a new course. But one course I play at alot in the summer I definatly play better.
  19. 1. Keep the ball in play 2. Dont try for the hero shot (take the one extra shot to hit the ball on the green) 3. Have someone else keep your score 4. Let your game take care of its self
  20. If you are gonna play match play, what about a half shot a hole? If you are gonna play stroke play then give him the 11 shots, by the slope and rating it sounds like it would be hard for your friend to play well espcially if if they have never played the course before.

    At first I thought this rule was a bad one but now reading through the comments I have changed my mind because what if there was a stick behind the ball, if this rule didn't exist you would be able to move the stick during your shot giving yourself a better lie. (all of this happening in a hazard)
  22. This year I was in need of a new iron set, as I wanted an iron that was more workable and accurate. I was expecting to lose a couple yards due to the higher lofts. This was not the case for me as I gained 5-10 yards with the Mp 68's over the MacGregor MT forged i was using. As anyone else had a similar experience to mine.
  23. He is saying the same thing as you the OP is a lefty so he changed to fit him.
  24. I just got Mizuno mp 68 irons would a flat lie angle promote a hook? because lately i have been hitting a high hook that starts at the pin then lands on left side of green.
  25. playing without the weights makes it an illegal club.
