  1. I still use an Orlimar 3 wood. I'm guessing 1996 or so
  2. Quick google search. Untested but prob get your going https://www.spreadsheet-library.co.uk/templates-tools/sport/golf-handicap-calculator/
  3. Re-Introduction

    Hi folks. Haven't been around in a good long while. Had about a 10 year hiatus. Got frustrated. put the clubs down and never picked them back up. Sort of regret it now but went out a played with my old man a month or so ago and want to get back into playing both to hang out with him more and to just have a fun hobby (I'm a bit calmer in my older age). Was a bogey golfer before or a touch better (80-85 or so on good days). Decent iron player, terrible tee ball. So I've been seeing a coach a couple times a month to get some good habits and make changes while everything feels uncomfortable. Body Posture, Grip, the works Anyways.. glad to be back around. Maybe get together with Atlanta area folks sometime and play a round
  4. Is there a story behind that statement somewhere on this site? Seems like an interesting read (No intent to derail thread)
  5. Chastain Park in the clouds

    I live in this neighborhood. Could be a good course if not for the management
  6. AfterShokz Trekz Titanium

    I read a lot. Don't post though :D Two kids under 4, not a lot of golf time. So it sucks as usual
  7. AfterShokz Trekz Titanium

    I've used a set of the trekz for about a year. I love them. Nothing in or on my ear. They don't like OTE headphones of course but for what they are I think they're great. They're on my head right now, I use them all day at work for music and conf calls. Just have to charge a lot but I can live with that
  8. 100 yards in - which club to use?

    Yup. I rarely hit a SW other than a chip of 20 yds in. I love hitting the knock down PW. Comes in low, controllabe and stops
  9. Getting Ready for 2011 Season

    Fitting in time to play/practice again. After a shoulder injury then training for a half ironman then wrecking a motorcycle (injuring shoulder again) I can finally say I can swing a club again. I've played once this year and didn't pick up a stick beforehand to even see if I could still hit it. Starting Stack and Tilt and my major goal would be the tee ball. I lose way too many strokes with OB and lost balls off the tee. To watch me off the tee and then from 170 in I'm 2 different golfers have to hit the big(ger) sticks straighter
  10. Hook or Slice?

    You can talk to a slice but a hook won't listen :D During a round I seem to be able to straighten out a hook quicker than a slice but for overall scoring.. Hook is the devil. Trees don't stop it most of the time
  11. Consecutive Birdies

    3 is the best I've done. Funny thing is I prefer par 3's because my iron game is 100x better than woods. I rarely birdie a par 5 even though I'm a longish hitter. Never know where the driver or 3 wood is going
  12. I should receive the book tomorrow. I have the DVD's and just can't watch them. The delivery is horrid and boring. I'm sure the information is good but I just can't sit through them. Here's to hoping the book is better :D
  13. Why Do People Cheat?

    I won't play a shot that might damage my club. Don't care what the rules are in that situation On busy days I'll play a lost ball where I didn't hit a provisional like a lateral hazard. I've lost a few in the rough at some courses around here When I go OB and didn't hit a provisional I don't go back to the tee. I drop next to the OB stake and hit 4. I just assume I went back to the tee and hit my next drive the same way except it didn't go OB :D
