    How Do I Sell Iron Set

    Not many will be able to do this going forward especially if their mortgage is paid off. I hate having stuff sit around so I sold a set of Ping Gs's for $60 on Craig's list last year. Included an Adidas bag, 30 shag balls, plus a Nike driver and a couple other clubs. A complete set. I made the guy's day. He thought I was quitting the game! Met him in the parking lot of my office.
  2. Reminds me that I just saw this on the internet:

    Kuchar Pays Caddie $5k, Is Shamed, Pays $50k

    Exactly. Phil is a big, generous tipper and carries like $8k in cash in his bag for betting, tipping, etc.
  5. No big preferences. I live in Delaware county and Play Delaware Golf club. Bent Tree and Oakhaven a lot. Payed Northstar a couple of years ago and thought it was a real treat. It has been 20 plus years since I played in Granville.
  6. I can do the 20th, but not the 27th as I will be travelling.

    What Does Winter Golf Look Like to You?

    Looks like this (The Range in Dublin, OH): Got five 1 hour sessions for $100 in preparation for a little golf trip to Florida at the end of next week. Thanks to @klineka for the tip!
  8. I would be interested.

    Adding Sims to my Existing Bar/Restaurant

    Exactly. After a beer or two the patrons are using the simulator for entertainment, not to hone their game.

    Over Under On Improvement In 1 Month

    I would bet under 10, however a lot depends on the rating and slope of the courses/tees you play from. An 8 handicap can average low 80's on easier courses, so if he gets back to where he was with a month to practice and you play fairly easy courses, he could win. However, the best laid plans...

    100 Yard Options

    Yes, you need to dial in on getting the right gap wedge. Mine is 50* and I hit it about 100 yards and love the club as this is a common approach distance for me and feel very comfortable with it in my hand. My PW is 45* and I hit it about 120 yards I like this club too. Something else to consider is the milling/grooves on wedges. If you have a mixed set this might be a reason that you are seeing inconsistent gaps between clubs. If the face of the wedge causes it to spin more, it could cause the ball to carry fewer yards than expected just based on loft.

    Short, Downhill Breaking Putt Strategy

    That is great. My coach would yell at us at half time and say "what are you saving it for, your girlfriend on Saturday night?". He wanted us to play our hearts out and "leave it n the field".

    High Handicap Player Using Low Handicap Irons!

    I started in the early 1980's with a hand-me-down set of irons that had leather grips and dark-colored shafts. I am sure that they were the best money could buy back in the day. My grandfather was a Kansas City, KS champ and played in the 1935 US Open at Oakmont. He had a set of Kenneth Smith woods that I remember him playing with.
