    Golf is cyclical

    Jazz, I think that a lot of golfers experience the peaks that you refer to. Look a jimmy walker, Geoff Oglevy, they always seem to start the season on fire and then fade as the season wears on. It's just golf. My golf has always been up and down. When playing well I can play par golf. When I slump I can play in the 90's. Who knows the answer. Which is why I encourage you to enjoy every round, good and bad.
  2. Hi all, Haven't posted in ages so I thought I would pass along a pearl of wisdom to some of our newbies. "Golf is Cyclical!" Why don't we play well all the time or poorly all the time. It's why we keep coming back to the course. It's the reason that playing a good round is so enjoyable. So... The moral to this tale is to enjoy every round, good or bad. No club throwing, no fits. Just fun. Remember you low handicappers, this post is intended for the newbies... You guys can continue to throw clubs, scream and yell and curse the gods of golf.
  3. I'm a little surprized no one has mentioned Adams.
  4. To Zeph, I am playing MP 59's
  5. Thanks all, Great advice and I'll compile al for consideration. Duffy
  6. Hi all, Ok, I'm getting older and my swing isn't what it once was. So, I've decided to shop for some irons that are easier to hit than my mizuno's. So, this post is about getting some suggestions from fellas about my age 67 that have come to the same realization. I'm not horrible but I've seen my index go from 5 to 13 in the past couple years. Thanks in advance for your contribution. Duffy
  7. Thanks all. Some confusion but I think I've got it. Duffy
  8. OK, I have to confess. As long as I've been playing this game, I have never known the technical difference between chipping and pitching. Soooo. What is it? Thanks, Duffy
  9. does anyone else think that Bennet is a jerk? I think it's his swagger and lack of golf talent.
  10. This is an interesting question. One answer was given to us on Feherty's show a couple of weeks ago when Ian Poulter was asked how he got into the PGA. He had forged a card and sent it to the PGA and was accepted. His handicap at the time was a -4. Hey, I'm a 7, does that mean that at 63 I still have a chance?
  11. Thanks gang, I do swing it a little flatish and I haven't tried a TP version of a hybrid (why I didn't think of that is a mystery). Will give these gems of wisdom a try. Thanks again, Duffy
  12. Hi All, I have a hybrid problem..... I hook the hell out of them!! I don't have this problem with any other club, just hybrids and I've tried them all. My question is... Does anyone else have this problem and have you found a cure? Thanks, Duffy
  13. What do you do when one of your regular foursome won't shut up? Talks during everyones swing, talks while we're putting. Has to comment on every bad shot he makes and gives detailed description for the reason it happened. Gives constant advise on the course to help improve our game. The three of us are under 10, he is about a 25. We've asked him not to do these things but he seems not to be able to control himself. Other than shooting him, what can we do?
  14. Riviera CC Los Angeles (Bel Air) actually. Ate lunch under the Bogey Tree and shot 79. Great day and great memories.
