  1. I've done the exact same thing. Talk about feeling like a total @$$!!! It only took one time to learn my lesson.
  2. He's just out of his prime, wouldn't you say? He may be making things worse by trying to change his game instead of just playing with the tools he has. But that's impossible to really know. Regardless, Phil's best golf is behind him. He could still pop up here and there and compete, no question. He could string together some good weeks, no question. He is one of the all-time greats after all.
  3. Quite a bit of "giddy-up" from Tiger after he nailed that putt on #1. Quite the contrast from someone who grimaced after hitting a poor tee shot. ---- Rory shoots a +8, 79
  4. I bought a set of Cobra F7 One Length Irons for $244.50 earlier this Spring. The F7s are the two year old model. They were still in the plastic and brand new. The current model (F9) is going for roughly $800 - $1,000. Take it for what it's worth. I also picked up a brand new Titleist 917 D2 Driver for $155.00.
  5. Ok, we get it. You guys don't like Kuch.
  6. I like Kuchar this week.
  7. Yes, you're probably right. When I said he has become complacent, I was just being general. I don't think it is difficult to understand that he is in a different point in his life and has other priorities. That is likely. I do think that is what people mean when they say "complacent". Whatever Tiger decides to do - I don't really care more than passing interest. I'm newer to golf and missed the Tiger era - so I'm not as invested. I still think it is hard to believe that he hadn't touch his clubs for two weeks, or however long he says. But I digress.
  8. I read it. I suppose it is a bit more believable that he was on vacation with his family - so he didn't touch his clubs. But I still think it is a stretch. Maybe people are right about Tiger. He has become complacent.
  9. I have a difficult time believing that.

  11. Well, I haven't had much time to play and/or practice this year. I have a back injury and an abundance or wet weather to thank for this. I've been out maybe 5 or 6 times on the course and about the same for the driving range. That said, I have seen an improvement in my ball-striking. Whether this is because the one-length irons are helping or because I have made some improvements to my swing, I can't really say. I will say that I feel very confident because I know I can replicate the same swing 5-iron through gap wedge. Mentally, it has helped me. I'm looking to add a one-length 4-hybrid to my set right now.
  12. I wear a glove for all full shots. No glove when chipping and putting.
  13. Yes @Hugh Jars, I have been self-conscious and anxious several times at a driving range and even on the golf course. It was worse when I was just starting out but it still lingers with me today. Unfortunately, I have only found one way to handle it: The best way to get over it, is to simply GET OVER IT. Meaning, you have to keep going. Eventually what is uncomfortable can become comfortable. Do not shy away from the range. You need the practice. I have to keep reminding myself that the people around me don't care! Play with more and different golf partners. Play with better players, if possible. Go out with a group of buddies who might tease you a bit. All of these things probably could trigger some more anxiety. So long as it is bearable, just forge on. It's all in good fun. If all else fails, you can get a decent net and turf mat for less than $100 to hit off of in the privacy of your own back yard but that creates many challenges to effective practice.

    Tremendous stuff, @iacas. It is greatly appreciated. I'm looking forward to delving into those topics and working on hip turn.
