  1. No, the owner of the site made comment that he hoped I was being sarcastic in something I believe in and have an opinion on. He dismissed my thoughts. That is the role of a troll, not the owner of the site. I received a demerit for my comment. Cool. I repeat, to the owner of the Sand Trap .com, Arbiter of All Things, and Knower of all Knowledge. GO f*** YOURSELF. Please, pretty please give me some more demerits.
  2. I had written a long response to your comment. Then I looked at your signature. f*** you.
  3. I would like to add a point. I am a big believer in instruction and training in all aspects of my life, golf included. What many fail to realize is that instruction gives you the tools to practice. Practice, utilizing the instruction, is what improves your skills.
  4. I chose "almost always" for both answers, but in reality it is "always". Even before I knew most of the etiquette rules, it was clear to me, this is how to end a round. It is actually off putting to me when someone does not remove their hat. Especially on the tour, drives me nuts.
  5. Several Federal agencies, the FDA, the EPA and a blue ribbon panel of lobbyists and relatives of Congress were convened and spent $72 Billion dollars on a study that determined ingesting golf balls is bad for animals. Therefore, and from here on out, animals are forbidden from ingesting golf balls, with a fine of $1,000 for first infractions, and $10,000 for subsequent infractions. If an animal is found to be a chronic ball ingester, there will be a new agency established to study the causes of ball ingestion abuse, possible resolutions and treatments and the Fed will declare a "War on golf ball ingestion by animals" that wil run for 30 years, resulting in an increase in animal golf ball ingestion. The only solution will be to expand the war and the dollars spent.
  6. I don't drink much. I do like wine and made my own this year. Maybe a bottle a week, at most. When at a party, I will have some kind of vodka mixed drink if I am drinking at that event. At BBQs, etc, I will have a couple beers, but almost never to drunkenness, or even buzzed. On the course I MIGHT have 1 or 2 beers, but only if the mood strikes. Of course these are generalizations. Sometimes I go weeks or more without any kind of drink, and some weekends I have more than normal. Really varies. As for what my government says, F them and their rules.
  7. Mine is actually very close. I needed wedges. Tried several and within 3 or 4 swings, I KNEW the RTX3s were for me.
  8. another vote for 7 Iron. I can hit anything under 145 with that club, so it would suit me well.
  9. Swing speed - Increase my swing speed by improving my technique. There is a lot there for the taking. I would like to get near or north of 100MPH Distance - Increase distance with my clubs, at least 20 yards for Driver and less as you go down the bag. See above for how. Right now my average drive + my average 7 iron = 350-375, I need that to be above 400 to really be able to chase down pars and better. HCP - Reduce HCP to mid to low teens. Continuous improvement, along with adding length should make this doable Continue my training. Lots of meaningful practice, lessons and task specific drills. Improve course management - I am OK and generally know what to do, but need to get better. Shoot in the 80s consistently - See all above. And finally - Remove the STENCH of the 119 I put up at my course championship.
  10. Consistency is a misnomer. BUt yes, it has improved a lot. Latest GHIN has me at 21.7, with all 10 scores being in the 90s, so yes. Yes, but 3' are nearly automatic in fun rounds, but Match play they make me bite my nails Yes, I have hit well over 2,000 Chips and Pitches in practice and continue to practice them heavily, most range sessions.
  11. I only noticed it because I was doing the same thing and my pro told me about it.
  12. Suggestions: Lift our head up. On your backswing, your left shoulder is pushing your head backwards, off the ball. Slow down a bit on your backswing.
  13. It may be time to quit keeping score and just going out and hitting the next shot. Let the score go and enjoy the game.
  14. I am gaming an XR16 right now. When I went for a lesson this weekend, I had 20 minutes to kill, so I swung the Rogue. Pro asked me if I was thinking of switching, to which I replied "only if this thing adds 20 yards to my drives" I then witnessed it add 20 yards to my drives. Back to back comparison to my XR16, same simulator, etc. Thank god the rest of my game is suffering right now, or I would be $400 poorer. But next year?......
  15. I went from infomercial rescue clubs to a set of Cleveland wedges. I have little experience, but I can say with confidence that I LOVE these wedges and they allow me to attempt shots I couldn't think about without them. They do their job very well when I do mine.
