  1. Well, last weekend was the opener for my local Par 3 course. I went out proudly with my newly fitted clubs, did my warm ups and tee'd up, from there well let the comedy begin. Upgraded my Clubs from Ping eye 2's to much new Taylor-made burners, a Cobra F7 driver R15 fairway wood and a titlist 718 hybrid. First hole is a short 104 yards and I used to use my PW, Wiped it out dropped the ball and Sailed it 30 plus yards past the green, Ouch @#$%. 1 over par there. 2nd hole is 243 yards, pulled out the driver (I usually hit right at 240), Nope over again not as bad and got it in for par
  2. Welcome To the Club Steve, What part of the State are you from? I'm from Menomonie area. Tell us about the courses that are around you. Glad to have yo in the club.
  3. Morning Fellow Golfers, WEl today is the 24th or April and I will be heading out this afternoon to try out my newly fitted clubs and see just how off I got over the very long winter.

  4. Butchammon, read your post and had to smile. I got out of the army and went into it. Like you I ended up being to old and got my class a cdl and have been trucking for 15 years. Nice to have a fellow vet and golf nut welcome to the obsession
  5. HI WI golfers. living in Menomonie, WI we have 3 courses in town and from what I read the Grand opening for Tanglewood Greens is the 11th and 12 of May with a big event going on http://www.tanglewoodgreens.com/event-center/our-events. This is a great 18 hole course. 2nd course is, Piinewood golf course. This is a great 9 hole executive course. Had dinner up there the other day Great fish fry . Talking to Jansen and Faith the owners they say as soon as the snow is gone they 'll be open. I like this course for the quietness of it and the ability to try different shots and the relaxed p
  6. Ok Fellow Golfers, I got some grand kids ages 1-8. The two oldest play in cali with my daughter and her husband at the navel base in Port Hunami. I have a 4 year old that I bought the little pink barbie Iron, driver and putter. Had her putting into a bucket on its side but that lost interest really fast, Getting warmer her so could be outside soon and would like to try to build her interest and keep it fun. any Ideas for keeping a 4 year olds attention for more than 5 minutes or am I doing good with that..lol. Thought Or Ideas?
  7. I think yoga is a great low impact solution and the benefits for our game will be positive. Being more flexible and possibly with that will come less chance for injury. My lower back starts to hurt after a few holes and I have to sit for a few minutes then every few holes so sure that to will improve. Great advice. Thank you
  8. Jcrane, have wondered about yoga but not sure how I’d squeeze into those tight pants or that I can even sport the look lol. I have been on the look out for a beginners yoga class. Has been hard to find one that fits my schedule I get Monday’s and Tuesday’s off. But thank you for the advice could use the stretching and flexibility also that’s gotta help your game right?
  9. There is a link between diet and exercise and yes over eating creates over weight. Over exercising can also produce weight gain as stated due to the fact that muscle weighs more than fat. I am 300 lbs and I struggle with weight. I think there is also a phycological aspect here also. To put it simply, I don't have a or mine in non functioning, an off switch or a full meter on my intake side. I eat till I am over full and suffer from it hours after. I eat healthy and prepare most of my own food. I will even though I'm full going to shove something into my mouth just cause it goes with tha
  10. I just bought clubs at 2nd swing in MN. I had a fitting that was free with purchase and boy am I happy I did. 1st off I have read and researched online read the blogs and asked any and everyone questions. I was pretty sure I knew what I wanted and was teetering between going to 2nd swing or dunham's sports store here in town. well I got on the track man and at 2nd swing and come to find out that the clubs i thought I wanted were among the worst I hit. I ended up with a Cobra F6 for a driver and they had me try the F7 and Idid not hit that as well. Irons I tried the titelist AP1 with grap
  11. Will do a Course Guide for the area courses here in Western WI.  Not sure if others are in this area but we have a lot of links around here to play and it ranges from 9 hole Par 3 Muni courses to par 72 18 that are reasonable in Price and offer some nice long bomber holes and a few that require a bit more accuracy.  we have sand and water and last year I almost hit a deer runnning across the fairway but lucky for her I am NOT that good.  so I'll post pictures and links to them . So Pumped up for the season.  Oh and GO TIGER he is doing great . nice to see the comeback.,

  12. Went to 2nd Swing today in MN and got fitted for some updated clubs. was an awesome experience. fitting was free with purchase and GOD was I out of sorts not having swung a club in a few months. But at the end I had a new bag full of Clubs that were best for me and they stayed within my budget and I was thrilled. Cant wait for the snow to melt and I will be out there. I am SO PUMPED to PLAY Tanglewood Greens In Menomonie WI . Great Course, Great people, Awesome Time
  13. Actually there are several great courses in a small area here. Turtle back up in rice lake is nice and voyager village country club near spooner is very nice. And I’m sure there are other recommendations others will make. A person can hit a few in a weekend and not venture more than 20+ miles from there hotel
  14. Well I’m new to the game so it varies day to day which holes blow the hardest lol. But still keep going out. Still have to Break the triple digit disasters got close but just missed it by that much(Maxwell Smart) yes I’m that old
  15. Here in Menomonie area we have tanglewood greens nice 18 hole new owners and they’ve sunk a fair bit of coin in fixing up the place. Love the course and new clubhouse.
  16. Super. I have an iPhone so far only one I’ve seen that has worked every time is the grint. Game golf was ok but not overly accurate and well to much trying to sell add on’s But that’s common this day and age. Everything’s got a price tag on it. I have not tried the pro version but not in need of the features. Thank you for your post. I’m trying to look at as many as I can.
  17. Hey Dan, just downloaded your app and really like the simplistic look and navigation of it. Downloaded the two courses I play that are close and the large 18 hole par 72 looks great. Was surprised to find my little par 3 29 course in there. Ran a test on that one and it starts the course on hole 2. Where does the data for courses come from. I currently use The Grint for an app and it has different data? I'll try it out scoring wise today and see how it all flys but do far so good. Keep it up I think you got a winner here
  18. Got the grips on yesterday thanks for the spiral wrap tips. I put a screwdriver in my vise and a large washer on it and spun the club. Unfortunately I used to much tape in the beginning and only got 10 clubs wrapped before I ran out of tape( ran inside and ordered more) so when new arrives I got it down. In the future I will pay attention to the pictures of the kit and order the 2 in tape. Thanks for the help was easy regrip except the old shaft clean up that was a pain but in the end well worth it.
  19. Just got some golf pride grips in a kit and it came with 1/2 inch tapes not 2 inch any tips on using the smaller width tape?
  20. Welcome to the community and to golf. For clubs and such starter sets can be had at divks or heck even Walmart for that matter. Used clubs are an option which is what I did. By the way this is my first year golfing. I found a used set of pings at a garage sale 4-9 irons and a pitching wedge, of course you'll need a putter. I went to play it again sports and got a driver just got one that looked in good shape and felt good in my hands. A bag(unless you buy a set that includes it and shoes. I played in my tennis shoes for a bit but spikes do make a difference. A good book to read IMO is Ben Ho
  21. Thanks. My local club wants 10 bucks a club to regrip lamkin grips. Another place did 3 clubs for 20 bucks and used DTG grips which I see go for a buck or two. Not sure which grips to buy golf pride on high end dtg on the bottom. Lamkins in the middle. See I can get a full 13 set with tape and solvent for about 70ish of the lamkins or 27 for dtg. And golf pro tight at 140 I do like the pings and I can hit the mid irons nice and straight.
  22. So my. Low gun attachment in my air compressor would work then ? Also. What are the advantages or disadvantages of one method over the other?
  23. Is the mounting something I could do? Also saw a video of pine meadow clubs being made and they used air to mount them. Watched a few YouTube videos on regripping doesn't look like rocket science but is there a hidden secret that makes getting it done better?
