  1. This is exactly on point. Really teaches you how it feels to hit certain distances, especially putting because the 2D visual reference is not a reliable reference when putting on a simulator. I have been playing on indoor sims for a number of years now and without a doubt my game has improved because of it. I would say that I benefit from around 10 strokes indoors vs outdoors, so just keep that in mind. But distances are very accurate in both situations, so you really get to know your clubs on simulators.
  2. Yeah, I already started looking for a 54*. The gap between my Gap Wedge (50*) and 58* is too large!
  3. Just picked up a slightly used Callaway X Series Jaws 58/8 My other wedge is a worn out Cleveland DSG 56/14 Looking forward to getting out there and playing it. Most the courses I play have hard sand, so this should help me with those awful bunker shots. Mind you, last Saturday with the DSG hit one perfect out the bunker to sink it for a birdie on a par 3. Now on the hunt for a 54 degree wedge as well
  4. Wanted one for years, but couldn't justify the cost. My brothers chipped in together and bought it for my 40th birthday! Love playing it. Distance control is excellent.
  5. Thanks! Sorry for typo on Jordan's name, but as you can see on the title I had it correct there ;)
  6. I will be using my convertible alot this summer to go to my golf rounds. It is a mid 2000 BMW, so has a smallish trunk. The few times I used it last year I was able to fit my Callaway full cart bag and CaddyTek 13 cart, but it wasn't ideal. I would like a smaller cart + bag setup. Any suggestions?
  7. Ah, you are probably correct. Did anyone happen to see it and what his gross score was?
  8. According to TMZ, Phelps beat Jordon by 1 stroke, shooting a 72! I don't get the Golf Channel, but for those of you that do, has he improved that much on the Haney Project?
  9. I will spending a week in a townhouse right next to Highlands Reserve. How is this course? Are there other nice courses in the area? I will be playing as a single.
  10. My brother and I are thinking of taking 3-4 day golf trip. We live in Montreal, Canada and would prefer to drive. How far south along the eastern seaboard do we have to go to find courses that are open? I was thinking Virginia, but are there any courses open north of that that time of year? Thanks.
  11. So for my 40th birthday my brothers got together and purchased the perfect gift. Something I longed to have, but couldn't bring myself to spend the money on. Scotty Cameron Select Newport 2 putter. It looks and feels amazing! Can't wait to try out, but courses have already closed in my area for the winter. It will be a long winter if I don't play anywhere this winter! Also my wife agreed and a couple of months ago we purchased a BMW convertible for me 40th!!!! What a way to start my 40s! BMW in the garage and Scotty in the bag!
  12. Shot an 89 with 1 quadruple bogey on a par 3 to boot! Conditions were hot, humid with dry hard grounds. Made for extra long drives, but had to really control approach shots because they would just bounce off the greens! I have shot many under 45 9 holes rounds, but was never able to keep it going for 18. I also had my longest drive ever, thanks to the above mentioned conditions: On a Par 5, the tee box is elevated, at around 175 yards the the fairway drops out of site. Normally I catch the slope and the ball rolls down to around 240-250 (+20 over my avg), but with the fairway so dry and hard and the air so good for distance, I carried over 230 and bounced and rolled down to about 300!!! I was 125 yards out on my second shot!!!!! I was so excited, that I couldn't finish the whole without a few mishits. Finished it +1, kinda sucked, but emotions got the best of me on that hole. All things considered this could have been an easy 85 round, just 2 holes held me back! Had to come here and blurt it out, don't have many golf buddies that care or even understand what breaking 90 means! Happy golfing everyone
  13. I chickened out and brought the driver with me. Didn't hit it that terribly. Shot a 92 with the 1 triple and a1 quadruple bogey on holes 2 and 18. I've hit it better in the past, but overall wasn't so bad and my 2 blowup holes were not attributed to the the driver....work in progress.
  14. A few years ago I played a couple of rounds with only 4 clubs, 5i, 7i, 9i and putter. Played within a few strokes of my normal score. Tomorrow I leave the driver home. Next week I'll work on it.
  15. I've always preferred playing every club in the bag. I am a believer of being able to hit all my clubs. However this spring my driver has been less then reliable. I am fighting a constant slice that when I finally think I corrected it, creeps back in next round. Earlier this week I played an afternoon round with my bro. I shot a +17 on the front nine with 2 triples and a quadruple thanks to errand drives. Around hole 8 I decided to stop using my driver and use my 3 wood off the tee. +10 on back nine with 1 triple (should have been a bogey, momentary lapse). Tomorrow I am playing a round and seriously considering leaving my driver home, so that I won't be tempted to use it. How many of you do this? I know my nephew never plays a driver, doesn't even carry it and he plays low 90s on a regular basis. Leave driver out of bag or hit and hope for the best?
