  1. did you hear Faldo say this during the Bridgestone? I have been using that lately and really like the tempo it gives me.
  2. I bought it last night based off all the positive comments. I like the advice of really working on one section until it is mastered. So far the illustrations have really helped tie things together when I try and flip things since I am a Lefty.
  3. When I first started golfing I played a course called Brigadoon Golf Club. People called it 'Bring-a Dozen'. I successfully lost 11 balls.
  4. Its always the short game that can bail you out. I've been trying to practice 70/30 short game to long game to improve scoring.
  5. I usually shoot from the blues unless the rest of the group wants to go from something else. I am a short enough hitter that I do not enjoy playing from the tips yet.
  6. I would say it helps you improve. It sounds like you think the same if you keep rehitting less and less.
  7. Black Titleist mesh hat, Black striped Slazenger polo, Gray Polo cargo shorts, and my brown Callaway golf shoes. I probably look like a mess on the course. :)
  8. Since you mention the problem spans a few days and isn't just during a round or after a range session, it may be wise to see a doctor as mentioned above. There definitely could be a bigger problem you are just aggravating.
  9. I would say 1 every 3rd round right now. Most of the times it is par 3s but the occasional par 4. At my best it was 1/rd but I could never get rid of the doubles. they still kill me.
  10. Check out Gardner's "Premier Golf Course". They fail to mention it is the only golf course :lol: http://www.gardnergolf.com/index2.htm
  11. Its not very original but I did engraved flasks with each guy's initials. A wedding I was in this weekend they gave us front pocket wallets/money clips that were engraved.
  12. I find I always golf better when I have had a good night and can truly focus on the game the next day. Also, +1 on the stretching. I'm not an old guy by any means but it certainly does help me.
  13. I have the Neo and really have benefited from having it. Most courses have custom markers entered that will show yardages to bunkers, water, distances to carry hazards, etc. I also like that you don't have to get an annual subscription; it is just $35 to get 100 credits and those credits are good for any course you want to download. Once the course is on your computer it is saved and accessible. I just was looking for a GPS to give me front, center, and back yardages. So far I have been really pleased. Edit to Add: I paid $120 off eBay on a Best Offer deal for a new one.
  14. Now how much fun is that? Honestly, I think you are completely right. And I agree, it is much more satisfying to me to stick an approach shot on the green rather than bomb a long drive. The only distance I worry about is trying to hit consistent distances with my irons.
  15. Check out eBay or a local store for Izzo Carrying Straps. They make after market ones that work like backpack straps.
  16. I've seen some pretty big snapping turtles, a black snake in the rough and a lot of deer. Nothing as cool as monkeys or wild elephants though!

    Tom Watson

    After watching the putts he has made the last two days that would be a 180 degree turn!
  18. I won $9 in a skins game once. Never any big money.
  19. I don't wear sunblock as often as I should. I used to use those towlette wipes that you could throw a few on the bag but I ran out of them. As for sunglasses, I wear them when I find I am squinting too much to focus. Otherwise they stay off.
  20. I use a plain ole washer. Its my poor man's marker. I always seem to get some laughs about it.
  21. I try and hit 100 balls or less even with unlimited balls. I practice as if playing a round on the course as mentioned above. So once I am warmed up I hit driver, iron, short chip. Driver , FW, iron, etc through the rest of the bucket.
  22. The 'Get in the Hole' yell drives me crazy. Especially on tee shots. Come on people.... I also hate at amatuer sporting events when fans boo their own team. I think people should support student athletes not belittle them!!
  23. No Blackberry or iPhone but I have an LG Dare and used Verizon's GPS Golf app once as a free trial. It worked ok and seemed accurate but I have a handheld unit that does the sam eonly better. The phone gets turned off and all business besides golf gets put aside.
  24. I am an Account Rep for a Freight company. If it goes on a truck, plane, or boat, I try to ship it. :)
  25. I like how the book is layed out in small stories. When I am having issues with certain parts of my game and just my state of mind I find it helpful to read a couple stories related ot my issue. I found his tips on grip and carrying the putter in off hand are the two lessons that stick with me.
