  1. Ashworth's Winter Sale - BIG Savings

    thanks buddy, if anyone is on the fence at all, I love every stitch of ashworth clothing that I have ever owned. Pants, shirts, shorts.
  2. Ashworth's Winter Sale - BIG Savings

    the sale didn't apply to Canada, very disappointed
  3. Most amazing wasted shot?

    was playing in a small scramble with co-workers. I rarely drink on the golf course, never to excess, except this time. Ironically, if we weren't driving, I never would have made it. anyways, we're on our last hole, about 205 out and I am swaying behind a 5 iron that I somehow manage to reach back and hit the highest, longest, most beautiful draw i have ever seen. landed and rolled to within a foot of the cup. best shot I have ever hit. (and someone else had to drive me home)
  4. Team Europe retains the Ryder Cup, 14.5-13.5. Justin Rose will lead Europe with 3.5 points (3-0-1). Chris Wood will clinch the Ryder Cup for Europe by winning his match on the 16th hole. You can see my GAME GOLF profile here: http://www.gamegolf.com/player/kype
  5. How to handle a cheater????

    sorry, I'm not up on all of the nuances of handicap scorekeeping. But are you sure, I mean absolutely sure that he cheated? the first post said someone mentioned a par on the first hole, that guy could have been mistaken, no? If you are not sure, let it slide. If you are, I think the private conversation goes something like "hey pop, nice job with a 77 especially considering the disaster on ## hole, didn't think that would have been possible". This way at least, he knows someone is watching. And hey, check the scorecard every few holes. Not so much that the tension ruins your game, just to assert the fact that someone is watching. not that this is an easy one. good luck!
  6. I can miss straight 12 footers for triple without any help, thank you very much.
  7. Most memorable streak of holes

    was a high eighties golfer at the time, playing a tough, but favorite nearby course. back 9 consisted of six straight pars, on 16 I was getting so nervous, I yanked my drive left into some small trees. Got to it only to realize that somehow (really) it had landed in about the only spot possible with a full swing and an opening out, I literally laughed out loud when I saw it sitting there. Popped it on the green from about 140 and 2 putted from there. Then on 18, I plugged one in the greenside bunker, exploded out to about 10 feet and drained it for an even par back of 36. Most solid stretch of holes I have ever played, been searching for one like that ever since.
  8. What's Your Sand Save Percentage?

    golfshot tells me 21%. would love to get that near 1/3, even 1/4 would save a stroke a round
  9. 1st Tee Nerves

    lots of people use visualization to help. Try this, next time you are on the range with the driver (or whatever club you feel most confident in teeing off with), imagine you are on tee #1, everyone is watching you. should be easy to get yourself into that headspace with lots of people on the range. if you hit a good one, smile and move on, hit a poor one, then just tee another up. soon you will lose sense of those around you, or at least it won't bother you so much. GL
  10. got a zepp a couple of weeks ago, been working on tempo and backswing length which really seem to help me get on plane.
  11. My Swing (coop6)

    yea, nice edit. lol. seriously though, nice swing too!
  12. My Swing (coop6)

    so it's right back to where you were when you started?
  13. Most Stressful Shot for You

    I'll go a different route, for me, the most pressure shot is when expectations are high, but I have difficulty getting the job done. i.e. shots from 170-210 are relatively low expectation shots anyways, ditto, shots from the trees etc. No, my pressure shot is middle of the fairway, 50-80 yards away. Usually after a great drive and you think, gotta knock this stiff! and I end up sculling a LW or chuncking a PW. I'm starting to acid reflux just talking about it.
  14. Small Things, Big Differences

    dumb question...how does one go about checking putter alignment with a laser?
  15. What Golf Equipment Helped You the Most?

    couple of years ago, I picked up a set of titleist 775cb irons and thought I was hitting them a ton, esp the short irons. When I looked up the spec sheet, i realized that the PW is only 45`. This caused the difference between my gap wedge and the PW to be far too large to be comfortable, so I went out and found the A Wedge that matched the rest of my irons and i love it. I realized that I was becoming far to reliant on the PW from everywhere inside of 135yards, now I have an additional lofted club that looks exactly the same, with extra loft, that I can trust 100%.
