  1. This guy used to annoy me, but I have grown to like him very much. I bet he has broken 80. LOL
  2. I will repeat this again as I thought it was a great line from a 30 year old who had at least one drive about 330 yards. After I made a par put on a par 5 he said "I would rather triple like a man than birdie like a pussy". My 235 to 260 yard drives down the middle did not impress him.
  3. Not sure if many of us will feel comfortable with our game. I backed out of a pro-am about 6 or 7 years ago because I did not feel that my game was where I wanted it to be. I have consistently raised the bar on where I feel content with my game. Breaking 80; shooting low 80's consistently; breaking 80 25 to 30% of the time out. Now I am breaking 80 40% of the time and still don't feel competent. Now I feel I should be able to be mid to low 70's consistently with a rarity of rising above 80. My advice is to go on your trip soon and enjoy yourself as you may never be satisfied with your game. PS. I don't have a swing thread yet because I sense that my swing looks like an out of shape, middle-aged man being tasered.
  4. Ohio State had a bar called "The Library". Mom: Where were you last night when I called your dorm room? Son: at the library. Mom: That's my boy.
  5. I read an article in a golf magazine where they polled PGA pros about how much $ they kept. Phil Mickelson, who is know to gamble and is a bug tipper responded that he had $8,000 in his bag. I worked with a "player" who kept his condoms in his golf bag so his wife wouldn't find them. Me? Nothing interesting, plus I keep the minimum in the bag so as not to spend time rooting around for things.
  6. I played with a beast from my office the other day. This 30 year old was out there pushing 350 on a couple of holes. I beat him by maybe 10 strokes on my home course, which he had never played. He had a good one: "I'd rather triple bogey like a man than par like a pussy." I got a laugh out of that.
  7. I am in my 50's so wearing myself out for normal play is a consideration for me. I want to stay fresh. I do want to emphasize trying to hit closer targets to practice club face control. If a person can't keep it to 10 or 15 feet either side of a target 100 yards out, how can they expect to keep it in the fairway on a full swing?
  8. I am between 5'8 and 5'9. I think I have a 44" custom shaft on my Ping G30 10.5* driver. Standard lenght is 45'75" I believe for that club. I suggest spending time on the range hitting your driver real easy to a target about 100 yards or so out. You can hit a jumbo bucket of balls real easy off a tee and it shouldn't wear you out. This exercise can help you control the club face. I spent a few years where I would not play driver. I then got fitted and practiced and often times it is the best weapon in my bag now.
  9. You can't let on to your problem mentioning the "s" word and hosels. Reading some of your posts brings on anxiety attacks. I may need to make an appointment.
  10. Our group has a rule that you can't move up to the senior tees until you handicap plus age equals 85. We have guys playing to a low single digit on a 6,400 yard par 71 course that struggle to hit the ball 240 yards. If they don't connect and get it all off the tee, then they might be hitting a 3w or hybrid into the green on the longer par fours. A good 3w for these guys is maybe 190.
  11. The corporate media want to drum up excitement for golf around the world. Grow the game, right?
  12. I used to play them. I now play the Snell MTB Black. The TruSoft is bout the same off the tee as about any ball distance-wise. Short iron spin is where you see the difference supposedly. I actually hit shorter irons/wedges farther with the TruSoft as it does not spin as much and will carry farther on say a sand wedge than a ball designed to perform around the green.
