  1. My advice..don't get fitted until you have a decent game goin' for you (i.e. single dig handicap). Most irons are one size fit all except for really tall or short people. It's just a big hassel and if you change setup or posture you may be in trouble. So i mean it is a personal choice and more power to you if you do.
  2. Hey guys just looking around to see what the best tournaments you guys know of that are out there that are up and coming in California's Central Coast area?
  3. Wow you obviously haven't tried them. They are in no way pieces of crap. The are toe weighted and that helps you with mishit shots. But I agree they are overpriced. But the Odyssey Black Series are around the same price. It's all preferance.
  4. Wow sounds odd. The only thing different between wii and reality is tempo. You should work on that. It's most likely the reason for your mistakes.
  5. I went from a 7.6 in feburary '09 to a 3.0 as of now. Havent played much so I can't really drop strokes. Practicing everyday though.
  6. Well I played with some friends who know not their 5 iron from a wedge but I managed to stay concentrated on my game. Shot even on the front (37, 3 birds, 3 boges) and 1 over on the back (35 with 1 boge) for a 73. Very pleased.
  7. Taylormade woods and hybrid (easier to hit and more accurate I feel). But everything else titleist. I love their irons, wedges, balls, and especially putters. I would also want Under Armor for clothing. And I like the Hooters idea too
  8. Ok I agree on the selection available to buy from any pro shop, but they can be ordered from the manufacturer. And if all else fails order one from the custom scotty shop.
  9. Okay. Since I am a tournament oriented player I would say use the olds ones until I got used to the new ones just as if you changed your swing or grip. If it is just for fun, then go all out on those new clubs. Have fun and they should work out for you. Let us all know how they work out.
  10. Ok here is the simple fix. Close the club face at address and take the same normal swing. If you want to go more technical, on the take away, take the club on a flatter plane and swing out to the right while keeping your right elbow close to your body until you hit the ball. This allows you to keep yourself from coming over the top and creating a terrible slice. This should allow you to hit that draw. If all else fails buy a draw weighted club :D
  11. Before I bought my Scotty i checked out the Odyssey Black Series number 1 and it was ok and don't get me wrong it's a good putter but I didn't think it was that soft. I don't like the way the inserts feel. They feel like plastic and I feel they have no true feeling in relation to the putt. I tried out my Scotty Circa 62 and loved the feel. It was soft and the feel was unbeatable. Also on faster greens it gave me more control over the ball. That's just my two cents.
  12. That'll be $150 haha. Jp dude glad it worked. Keep practicing it won't get better unless you keep at it.
  13. Let's see how many Scotty and Odyssey users are out there. And why you chose which.
  14. hmmm I have never heard that before. I just got a Scotty Circa 62 #2 with the plumbers neck and mine sets up square. It could be your grip or your set-up. Look in the mirror to see how it is exactly. Sometimes what you feel is not really what the case may be. Good luck
  15. Well here is my bag and I love it. Driver 10.5* 3 wood 13* Hybrid 18* 3-PW if you can't hit a 3 iron exchange it for a 21* hybrid 52* wedge 60* wedge Putter This seems to work well for me. So if it helps more power to you. It is all preferrence. Give different clubs a try and what works throw it in the bag.
  16. Stand further away form the ball. If that doesn't work try a more inside to out swing. Good luck.
  17. College student and also working full-time as a security officer at Presidential Protective Services.
  18. Well my coach was a former tour pro. He worked with these guys everyweek so I trust his knowledge is true. It also seems that some of us may be off on our specs, i may be too, but I agree with shorty that the standard is way too long.
  19. Well the coach I work with made a great point to me and it is this: the tour average length of a driver is 43" but at that same moment the average height is right up at 6' ish. When I put my proforce shaft in my driver it was 43" and when I adressed the ball it was toe up. And because of this I had a draw that would sometimes get away from me. So me being 5'8'', I decided to cut my driver to 42", which at address the club is flat, after hitting my coaches Tour Burner of the same length. I found I was more consistant and hit the ball about 20 yrds further. It helped me gain more control of the
  20. I like the fact that you are using video to help yourself. Try also looking at a mirror while taking your back swing to make sure your on plane and in a correct position. It will give you instant feedback so that you can change things while you are looking at it; whereas a camera you cannot I agree with this guy. He reiterated what I said earlier. And also break your hands hard at impact to emphasive the open-square-closed motion. Good luck tomorrow.
  21. How much different in weighting do they feel? And are they possibly draw set? If they are lighter you may be getting the club head around faster and in turn a little closed at impact. Try hittting some half swings and concentrate on keeping the club square at impact. If that helps than your timing may just be a little off. GOod luck!
  22. Yea that's true and then after that you are even more messed up than you thought you were..Haha.
  23. Most people say that the width of your stance is between the outside of your feet but that is incorrect. You want the ball alligned with the inside of your forward ankle. That is what is considered by most professionals as all the way forward in your stance. But as the nature of golf is, it is all preferrance. So try different positions on the range but the norm for position is the left ankle.
  24. I have always wondered that ever since I started playing. Kudos to you!
  25. See some of you guys smoke the ball with your irons alot further than me, but I hit the driver about the smae as you guys. Driver: 290-320 5 wood: 240-250 19* hybrid: 225-230 3i: 220 4i: 205 5i: 195 6i: 180 7i: 170 8i: 160 9i: 150 PW: 120-140 52*: 115 60*: 80ish
