    What are Your 2019 Golf Goals?

    1. Put a club in my hands 2x per week. 2. Get down to a 5.xx index. 3. Win a tournament at my home club. My game has gotten exponentially better over the last 2 years (cutting my index from a 15.2 to an 8. I believe in 2 years I should have the ability to play in a mid-am qualifier. I need to reduce my shot dispersion for 5i and longer this year to reach my goals.
  2. I would not live near a golf course if I was worried about damage from stray balls.

    Black Vokey Wedges

    I have a black 50* vokey-- love it and I only notice the wear on the sweetspot. However the club is only 4 months old.

    Play in the Championship flight or not?

    I voted wait but if you want a challenge you should do it. Personally I would like to do the champ flight at my club if I can get down to a 4 or so... but we also have at least a dozen guys who can shoot a 66 and not go over 74. So it would be an experience more than a chance to win.
  6. After a fitting last week I purchased a 54* k grind with 16* of bounce. Granted I have yet to get my club in... it was awesome. Usually I am exclusively using my 58 around the green but this new wedge can do it all. I was easily hitting 10yd flop shots off tight lies (which I could never do). Fits in the bag well as my 50 is low bounce and 58 is 8*. As a fellow digger I highly recommend checking in out.

    Any other car enthusiasts?

    Love Italian cars. I have a 91 testerossa. My friend has a relatively new 458 Italia and that is a beast. Not sure I would want to deal with all the electronics in the newer models.

    A wedge spending decision

    Up until last year I would buy used wedges from global golf. Never ordered a "value" rated club and each wedge (bought 4) was in good shape for at least 2 seasons. As I try to improve I went to getting fitted and buying new.

    Finding a home course

    I looked for condition of the course at different points of the year, practice facilities, other amenities, and distance. Obviously it has to be cost efficient.

    Breaking 80 Thread

    I love a boring round! Since breaking 80 in December I have been treated to three more boring rounds in the 70s.

  12. Granted the video does not show a full follow thru-- I do complete the follow thru from 1/4 and 1/2 swings and can hit very accurate shots from 50-105 (5 yd gaps) between my 4 wedges.
  13. Sounds like the Pelz method which I use a lot unless I need more spin.
  14. Currahe, Waterfall, Sky Valley, and Achasta are all in N. GA mountains. The first two are private but easy to get on and the other two are semi private with online booking.
