  1. I would try a sleeve of the Magna's at a local golf shop first. They are different. Sometimes, it feels like you hit a knuckle ball and other times you can pure it. It does help with the slice. I found them very easy to chip too. It is not magic. So, I prefer the Srixon Soft Feel. One of the better 20 dollar a dozen balls. If price is an issue, as said, before D2 Feel at Dicks is a great ball and value. They are firmer than the soft feels. But, still feel great. Stock up on Black Friday deals.
  2. Check this out for hitting positions. Start it at 12:20 to get to the dead drill.
  3. Played Beau Rivage. It was not that impressive. But, the only game in town, south of town. Anyone play the par 3 course Inland Greens?
  4. I could never get the timing of the left foot down. But, always wanted to as it is an easy way to start from the ground up.
  5. Sounds, good. What do greens fees run at the Big Cats? Do they have a 9 hole rate? Love the Caddyshack reference :-)
  6. Do you allow the club to fall (using the heavy weight) or in an effort not to decelerate, intentionally move the club through the shot?
  7. Cool, DrvFr, As I said, playing a different club for firm sand is new to me. I used to just close down the S wedge and pray. Do set up or play the 58 c-grind any differently?
  8. Thx, for sharing. Yes, it is awesome for a short high shot from the rough too, when trying to go over the bunker.
  9. I will answer my own question, lol. I played the Muni a few weeks back and it was a good value. Will try Magnolia Greens next.
  10. Try standing further from the ball. I had a flying elbow and it has helped.
  11. Then this should be easy! I played with the 1 out last weekend. I hit some great shots. My miss was a thin shot, sailing across the green. These comments are great and needed. But, if anyone has played with the Smart Sole, 1 out, sure out, Alien and made some adjustments, I would love to hear your comments too.
  12. Agreed, I have been playing for 30 yrs and I just started to practice since I bought a new club. It appears just with practice one can improve even with basic knowledge. Also, I learned to appreciate the feeling of a well struck bunker shot.
  13. Thanks, WUTiger. That is quite interesting. I never thought of using a different sand wedge depending on the conditions. I always thought of adjusting the technique with the same wedge. Makes sense. I'll check out the other threads, too. Thanks, a bunch. SG
  14. Haven't played TE. But, have really enjoyed the Cleveland HB3's. The new version is the Launcher HB hybrid irons. TE has HL4 iron-woods. I think they are both a great way to start out as it is very forgiving. You might actually keep them for a long time! Clevalands are 500 on Amazon, the HB3's are about half that on ebay. TE's are cheaper as well. Some of the new Callaway iron sets are 1,000-1,500 - ouch!
  15. Has anyone mastered the Sand Wedge for high handicappers? Such as the Sure out, Smart wedge, 1 out etc. I am having difficulty with the 1 out. This sucker is really heavy. What adjustments have you made? Thx, SG
