    What'd You Shoot Today?

    I am on a roll and I hope it keeps on rollin'...Shot my 3rd consecutive round under 90. Shot an 88, and for the first time I played a complete round with the same ball. I did not lose one ball today.....

    10 Finger or Baseball Grip

    I use baseball grip. Don’t know what orthodontist grip is. I use baseball grip, use to use overlap be, because of pain in fingers. I have become more consistent with 10 finger grip.
  3. All that stuff catches golfers like fishing lures catch fish....

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    I turned 70 yesterday and played golf today....I played last Tuesday and shot 85. I shot 89 today. This is the first time in my life the I shot under 90 two times in a row, and only the 5th time that I have shot under 90. I usually make a couple of pars per round. Today I had 4 pars and a birdie on the front 9 and 3 pars on the back 9. Unfortunately, i had a couple of 8's. Gonna play again next week, gonna see if I can make it 3 in a row...

    Single Length Irons

    Maybe not for everyone, but have been playing them for about a year. I will say that it does take some getting used to. Not just the single length, but the single plane swing. I am 70, and was struggling. Got fit for a set of Cobra SL clubs. Spent 2 weeks at the range before I attempted to play a round. I generally shoot around 90, and just recently shot 85, lowest score yet. Here is what I would say....my set is a 5i thru SW. I use a 3H and 4H instead of the irons. My distance before changing was: 5i I would not even hit it... 6i is 160 yds, 7i 150 8i 140 9i 130-135 PW 120 GW 110 SW 90 My distances with the SL irons are almost identical, but the biggest difference is that my shots tend to be straighter. I am getting better and have to say that I would not go back and will stay with the SL clubs. I wish I would have discovered them a few years ago. They are not a gimmick, but they are not for everyone. I will honestly answer any questions anyone might have.
  6. 2 scrambled eggs, 2 pieces of bacon, glass of orange juice, and a large glass of water or 2....usually keep gatorade or 2 and an apple in my bag....usually grab a burger or chicken sandwich after the round...

    New Irons

    Hit 'em both and see which you like and feel best with and about....no one can make that decision for you.

    Wedge called Fairway

    I think Hogan used to make one called Fairway...May not be right, but seem to recall it...

    To piggy-back on this...do you go spike or spikeless?

    How Many Hybrids Do You Carry?

    I carry two hybrids...a 3H and a 4H...
  12. 7i would be the one club for me...probably putt better than with my putter....

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    After shooting backs to back rounds of 97, I shot a 92 this morning....Had one hole with a 4 putt, and a couple of double bogeys that should have been bogeys, so I felt pretty good. Hit the ball well, only lost 1 ball, so now my next goal is to break 90 next week....

    Hybrid VS Driving Iron

    Seems it is personal preference for many...but wouldn't carrying a hybrid be more versatile than carrying a driving iron. Is the only place you are gonna use the iron is off the tee, while you can use the hybrid off the tee, off the fairway, out of the rough, and in some instances around the green?
  15. I use the Thomas Golf 3H and 4H...I like them, find them not to be extremely long but they are consistent and I continue to play with them for the past 3 years. I tried a few others but settled on the Thomas Golf 3H and 4 H and am still playing with them and not looking to replace them...That is the best info I can give you...
