  1. Tee to green is as nice as it gets, relatively no rough or penalizing type lies, as long as shots go to a spot (if you can do that). Green speeds make less difference at Augusta, it's the undulations that take control. If you get a veteran caddie, listen to him and it makes you look like a pro. Without him, you're toasted.
  2. Very recently a thread was started here about PingEye2 iron sets and subject was some folk (experienced players) were seeking out these clubs to play AGAIN. I have played Eye2 irons for many years, now on my second set as the first set was stolen. As old as this design is, people have always got good memories and respect for these clubs. and you can find sets for $100 or less ALL DAY LONG. Buy a set, re-grip, and he's set up - to see if he likes the game. With the difference from buying sets suggested, you have $$ for that driver and putter (these clubs will be more per each than a couple sets of Eye2s). and a bag. Be sure to put new 'velvet' grips on the properly fit clubs (according to the Ping site) and your son will have the best starter set he could find - and he may just play them for years to come. You know, you're Ping. PS - I had been planning on a new set of irons just because but when I tuck one up close from 100 or 150 yards, I forget about it. I am shopping putters tho.
  3. I hope so but its been hotter'n hell down here (Aug area) last couple months. Too hot for me to play
  4. The Masters should be a real treat this year. Since no patrons, there will be no concession areas (where many gather), only a few of the bigger scoreboards, no signage, no grandstands, no crosswalks to get all beat up and HOPEFULLY NO ROPES lining the holes. Amen Corner. It'll be as the members see it and BobbyJones envisioned - golf holes cut out amongst the 100ft Ga pines. Teeboxes with nobody to crowd around within just feet of the shot, greens with all the surrounding grounds - it should be a sight - CBS has been doing it forever and it'll be new to them. It's been a pleasure to watch these tournaments with 'no fans'in this condition already. Seems like a different place in some of the angles. Dang tv towers. Normally, the course opens mid late October thru mid late May, closed during the heat of the region. Crew should be going thru the normal cycle of getting the course ready. Except not having to put up with stuff like cable or fiber being put under ground in new places or the erecting the temporary stuff.
  5. Seniors play on courses that pga does not. Still very nice top notch usually resort type courses. Tigers' got a yacht to take care of when he turns 50. And he already has to cut back for physical problems. That full turn is a challenge when things tighten up. And I almost forgot about jr. (CharleyWoods)
  6. He definitely shows there is more than one way to swing a hammer. And he can hammer the ball.
  7. I do enjoy watching players closer to my age although I am older than most of them nowaday. I especially love to watch KennyPerry play. He has cut back drastically but was a factor in this major last weekend.
  8. Reports of using a longer putter to take some strain off the lower back; lve not seen how much difference the newer putter is in length, I wonder kinda selfishly since my back restricts my freedom s, especially later in the round.
  9. Now THAT is what keeps me coming back, great shot !
  10. with four straight pars and hittin last, I'd a had to say - 'Dang boys, hope I didn't hold yall up too bad !'
  11. My main interest in watching was to see the famed Seminole Golf Course, not the golf involved; so much hype about the course all week. And it is a beautiful setting. I understand the design had to work with what they had but I'm fairly amazed at the closeness of all holes from green to next teebox. I suppose play does not get too backed up on an ultra elite course such as Seminole but I also betcha they's some ducking going on with the errant shots during normal golfing days. they seemed to be fairly prompt except for deciding who was 'away' on second shots.
  12. So anybody keep a clock on how long it takes 4pros to walk a flat tract? DJ seemed to play ready golf tee to green.
  13. Been playing same course since this life has changed but also have had a mild winter and been playing thru the times too. We have used the pool noodle (not the raised cup) and it seems to be a perfect solution, no complaints. But I now realize (or have adapted) that playing with the flag in makes no difference after you get used to it and if conditions ever go back, I'll probably not pull a flag again. It seems I actually focus better and maybe judge the distance better, or something. Flag has not come into play at any time so far, probably 12 or more rounds at least. One weirdness about leaving the flag in is when your putt aligns perfectly with the shadow cast by the stick. Windy conditions may be a small distraction too but not much effect on the stroke, to me anyway. and it speeds play noticeably.
  14. Played last Thursday and hit it really good, have a 2:10 today. No rakes etc, one per cart, unbelievable weather and the course is greening up nicely. All courses open down here, it's just not as many folks down here I reckon.

    S7K Putter

    I would think it has plenty weight on the toe ?
