  1. I got an albatross on Sunday! Hole in 1 with my driver on a 270 yard par 4, that was really cool.
  2. Clic gear 3.5+ is what I use. It's a great cart, no issues to report. Solid purchase.
  3. I wish you luck with them. I purchasd Stratas 2 years ago when I started playing. The irons will be just fine, driver and 3 wood were such low quality it was ridiculous. First swing I took with the driver I topped the darn ball (everyone does it, just admit it) and it left a golf ball sized dent in it. 3 wood? Same thing. The bag fell apart the very first round I walked with it. I hope your experience is better than mine. I don't mean to discourage you or talk down your purchase but it's just food for thought while you may still have time. But like I said, good luck and the irons will be just fine.
  4. Had the round of my life today. Shot a 1 over 70. Was sitting at -2 on the 17th tee box and promptly put one OB. Made a double on that one then pushed my iron shot right of the green on the par 3 18th, made a bad chip and left myself 20' for par, lipped that bad boy out and tapped in my bogey for a fantastic round. I was sooooo close to accomplishing one of my 2016 goals. What a day.
  5. My lowest is a 4I. I use it only for punch shots that need to go somewhere, however it only gets used once every 4 or 5 rounds. Knock on wood.
  6. I use a ping glove and I really like the feel of it. I buy about 4 a year for $20 each.
  7. I will be voting for the republican candidate as per usual.
  8. I believe it. DJ drove a 290 green with an iron last year.
  9. I played there as a single last month and was told the exact same thing. I called a week before and they added me to a threesome. This was January 30th and they were booked solid that day. Most courses I've played don't make tee times for singles bit are more than happy to get you squeezed in somewhere.
  10. Got my first eagle today! 20 foot putt from the fringe on a 517 yard par 5.
  11. Shot a 7 over 76 which is great for me and the 13 I carry around. Long game was spotty at best today which I was able to save with my short game. Chip in par and a handful that ended up as tap ins. Only managed 6 greens and ended with 27 putts. This was my first time tracking putts but I felt that was a great number. This year has gotten off to a good start and am excited to see how it unfolds.
  12. I suffered from this for about 3 weeks last year and fixed it in 10 minutes at the range. I put a head cover outside the ball and tried not to hit it. Worked like a charm. Good luck to you, I know how frustrating it is.
  13. I go for the first tee time of the day or as close as I can get to it. I like to play fast and it gets so damn hot here in the summer it is nearly unbearable.
  14. My vote would be a 58. Extremely versatile club and will be perfect for what you are after.
  15. I throughly enjoy woodworking as it is also a great escape. Plus you end up with awesome custom pieces.
  16. I have a G30 3 hybrid which is 19 degrees. I absolutely love it.
  17. Roger that. I watched the videos then watched my swing a few times and there is a huge and obvious difference. I will definitely work on that ASAP. Thank you for the feedback.
  18. I've been Playing Golf for: 18 months My current handicap index or average score is: 12.7 My typical ball flight is: Straight/ draw The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Chunks Videos: This is the only video I have, a buddy sneakily took it yesterday. When asked about the miss I hate I said Chunk, however that is not an issue with this club. This shot coincidentally was the only shot that went to the right all day. I've added (what I feel is) torso rotation this winter and have experienced significant gains in distance. My average drive is up 35 yards to 260 from 225 through 7 rounds in the last couple weeks. I know the swing is riddled with flaws and am eager to get it worked into something strong. Any tips and advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you all for your time.
  19. The 80's golfer may not suffer from this as much as the 90's but not settling for bad practice strokes helps a lot. If when you take your practice stroke you don't like the result then take another one. My routine calls for one practice stroke but if I feel like it was fat or thin or anything less than perfect for me, then I just take another making the necessary correction. If I don't then it is in my head that I have to compensate during the real swing and the result is typically less than ideal.
  20. Great info so far and I really appreciate it. The chef at the course is going to cut me a great deal on an amazing dinner sonthat is checked off. I got a quote for hole in one insurance so we will probably do a decent sized cash prize for that. I hadn't thought of tax ramifications and permits so I will definitely be looking into that. I am going to ask a car dealership to donate a rental van so I can drive people home who maybe enjoyed themselves a bit too much. I have 4 months to pull this off so I will be talking to most every business in town to secure sponsors and raffle items. Please keep the great tips coming! I appreciate you all taking time from your lives to help me along.
  21. A 26 year old friend of ours had a stroke last month and is still in the hospital because the doctors still cannot figure out what is wrong with her. Her husband is now missing a lot of work to be with her and they have a son who is less than a year old. I was trying to think of a way I could help them out, so with her husbands permission I have decided to organize a charity tournament. I have the course and date planned already so now I need to start the process of gaining sponsors. If any of you have done this before could you please give me any tips and advice to make this a very fun and profitable event? Thank you for your time.
  22. No way. I had the shanks for a month and I can say will 100% certainty that is not one.
