  1. I played it from the Blue tees a couple weeks ago. It's really not a hard course, nor was it in as nice of condition as I thought it'd be. It plays short and pretty darn easy as long as you don't try to bully the layout. Miss the fairway or green and the rough and bunkers are tough, but if you play it like it was designed from anything but the back tees it's not hard if you're hitting it OK. I was disappointed.
  2. I'm neutral now, all around, but had it set to neutral upright with the weight in the heel to promote a draw for a while also. Very noticable change in ballflight, the movable weights really do work well. It's a great club for those wanting a different ballflight with their driver compared to irons without changing your swing. I like to hit a light fade with approach shots and a light draw with the driver and it made that easier. Now, though, I've had some work done with my swing and everything is a strong draw. Go figure. Nice driver at any setup, very forgiving but not the longest.
  3. I'd still be happy to offer hosting space if anyone needs it (for scorecard use, that is).
  4. I'll give it a shot Eric. I downloaded the demo but never really got around to it. Whatever you need me to do, I'd be glad to do it. I've been meaning to track my stats and am ready to take the next step and commit to a program that will let me do that. I have several servers so uploading won't be a problem, in fact I don't mind hosting a few scorecards for folks if they need hosting. I'll upload a few scorecards over the weekend or Monday, depending on my schedule and if it's still available.
  5. Oct 24th and 25th I'll be going to a 2 day golf school at TPC Sawgrass, which is pretty much a couple days of short classes/analysis and a round of golf afterwards. Here's the thing: I have no idea what to expect, especially for the golf after. I'd imagine it'll be the Stadium course. Do we walk? Do I pay for a caddy? Can my wife come for the round? I really don't have a clue.
  6. HC may go down playing the tips, it depends on how you play. The course will be rated higher from the tips, so shooting the same score will net a lower handicap. I play from the tips, play the ball as it lies but if it gets mud on it or plugs I'll clean it off. I don't roll the ball on the fairway or anything, but again if it gets mud on it I'll clean it off. I also won't hit the ball off a root or something that might hurt me or the club, but I don't improve my position. That's really about it. I try to play exactly by the rules but in some cases I make exceptions when practicing (but not to lower my score). Also, I post all scores regardless of how I played.
  7. Best thing I can suggest is playing the ball off your back foot, lean foward with hands well foward and taking a short but powerful backswing - which ensures you're accellerating through the ball. Keep the face held open like a bunker shot. Really it's the only way to have control, since you're not really hitting the ball - rather the grass behind and under the ball.
  8. I agree, olympics mayble should be exclusivey an amateur only event. Then again, you want the best in the world... quite the predicament. Either way, golf in the Olympics is good for the sport, no doubt about that.
  9. Lol, well yea. I should have said "tender"
  10. You know the funny thing is, the doctor ( who's done 20,000+ vascectomies ), actually suggests it's OK to play sports (even basketball!) after 3 days so long as a supporter (jock strap) is worn. Crazy, I know... but he also says ice isn't necessary. It's something to do with his procedure, which left only two very small nicks on my jewels (no stitches or anything). No ice, no swelling, no bleeding, no stitches. Just alittle sensitive if I sweeze them. A buddy of mine went with me, both had it done. He says he's 100% recovered now, can't feel any discomfort. All I took was 2 ibuprofen Saturday afternoon. Kinda crazy, but I was thinking about practicing some short game today... eh.
  11. Geez... why can't people just hit the fairway with their drives and the greens with their approach shots! /kidding. But seriously, yea definately look at the ball first if it's in someone else's fairway. Heh.
  12. Like already said, if it's sitting down in the rough (with grass behind the ball) you gotta play it like a bunker shot. That's the safest way.
  13. Does this mean I can play from the red tees now? Actually it wasn't as bad as I thought, though it was kinda awkward. Hope it doesn't cost me any manhood, all seems well so far...
