  1. Been there done that. Coming back to the game, after a long hiatus, is the only situation I am familiar with. One wonders how it might be had there not been so much time away. The great thing...the very great thing...is how much game there is before you. And how could it be otherwise?
  2. I don't think it makes any difference. There is such a wide selection of weights and flex profiles, in both steel and graphite, that a golfer can play with whatever shaft material he or she prefers. If you'd rather all your clubs had graphite shafts...go for it. If you like your wedges just the way they are...why change?
  3. Hitting off a mat is fine so long as you pay attention to what you are doing. Yes you can get away with fat shots but you can certainly tell whether you are making a clean sweep or catching the mat slightly behind the ball. One drill I use with my friends who play infrequently is to place a penny in front of the ball and ask them the hit the penny instead of the ball. That usually shifts their focus to the front, rather than back, of the ball. When you are starting out with this game it is easy to fall prey to the impulse to attack the ball. The idea, however, is to have the club head pass through where the ball is...on its way to somewhere else.
  4. Thinking about what my wrists are doing has never helped my game. They can only function in they way they do. If I ask them to compensate for an out-of-shape pass...they don't understand what I'm on about. The best thing to ask your wrists to do, during the golf swing, is nothing.
  5. I'm going to procrastinate less...starting tomorrow.
  6. Try figuring out one club...whatever your favorite is at the moment. You don't know what you are doing and you have to sort that out. Learning this game takes as much patience as it does practice.
  7. For me it is a poor recovery. I've already screwed up and all I need to do is right the ship. Making a dog's breakfast of it...back to back...is a tough pill to swallow.

    The middle column shows either the number of holes the player has completed or their score for the round.
  9. I could quote Bobby Jones, exactly, if I hadn't loaned out the book. Paraphrasing...it goes something like this. There are two ways one may approach golf. One may think of it as a convivial day out with friends...or put in the serious time and effort to elevate one's game above the average class. It will not do, high-evah, to conflate the two. Especially to hang the ambitions of the latter upon the labors of the former. That's as close as I get to having a mantra.
  10. Played the local executive track (par 61) and came home with a 68...after going 1 under on the front 9. "Lets hit one even farther" reared it's ugly head on the back. The temptation to do better is more persistent than nail fungus.
  11. So...south London sort of. Would it be Palace?

    It's the toilet water swirling the wrong way. It messes with your head.
  13. 1:1. People who take 20 minutes to get their cart in order take forever to do everything else.
  14. I have no idea. Whenever I play in a foursome I figure it is going to be awhile. Those rounds are usually played on the weekend and take a minimum of 4 hours...if you are lucky.

    Hey...OSU got their QB from Georgia; Oklahoma got theirs from Alabama; and LSU got theirs from Ohio State. Don't look like anybody knew what they were doing...except Clemson.
