  1. Thanks everyone. You have all answered my question. Luckily, my provisional is usually the same length as my original drive. I was watching videos by Thomas Golf on the Rules of Golf, and the way the instructor stated Rule 27 just confused me, which isn't hard. HAHAHA. Again, thank you all for taking the time to answer!
  2. Thanks Turtleback. As stated above, once my husband explained in "old blonde" terms, it made sense! HAHAHA. No more videos on Rules for me!
  3. Thanks! My husband explain in "blonde terms" that you get the one provisional and keep hitting it until you get to the original shot, then use the provisional, with all its stokes, if the original is out of bounds. Whew, maybe watching golf videos isn't such a good idea for this old blonde! Thanks to all for your answers!
  4. So, if my first provisional is not as far as the first shot, can I still use it? Now I know why no one hits more than 1 provisional. HAHAHA
  5. I recently watched a video regarding Provisional shots for out of bounds shots. They stated as an extra note, if your provisional shot is topped or a bad shot, you can take it again and again until your provisional is at the same or close to distance of your out of bounds ball. If it took three shots of a provisional to get to the same distance as the first shot, you then realize your original is out of bounds, so you use the provisional, which took three shots to get there, do you count each additional provisional shot?
  6. No, it isn't the weight, I just constantly either hit them fat or swing around my body and they go left. I do much better with woods.
  7. I am a 67 year old woman who cannot hit irons. I found a hybrid for 100 yards, but what hybrid can I use for 90 yards and 80 yards? I have a 45 degree for my pitching wedge (60 yards) and a 40 degree for my 70 yards.
  8. My friends say I play too fast. I line up the shot and swing. Hopefully, it goes in the right direction. A couple of the ladies I play with will stand on the green to continue a story they are talking about...drives me crazy, especially when people are waiting and it is hot as hades out. I say, come on ladies lets move, there are folks behind us, and they still continue their talk. I have seen players who stroll to and from their shots, slower than the turtle. HAHAHA. But when the alternative is no one to play with, I'll keep the slow pokes and keep nagging them to move.
  9. Ok, I am an old blonde, which is worse than a young blonde, and have no idea what an avatar is or how to get one. When you're through laughing, would you share your wisdom with this airhead and tell me how? HAHAHA thanks!
  10. Thanks! I will try a sleeve of the DT Solo, then try the other one. Appreciate your response!
  11. I am a 67 y/o woman with a really slow swing speed. I love the KickX ball but lose them too often so I usually use Wilson 50 (compression) and get great distance. Since the weather in NC is now hot and humid, I have swtched to Icicles (70 compression) because my husband feels when the temps get hot you should use a higher compeession. If I could afford them, I would stick with KickX, but $39.95 is a little high for my game. Tell your grandfather to try the Wilson 50, I think he will really love them.
