  1. I went to Golf Galaxy today right when they opened at 11, and got a new shaft. It is like 40 minutes round trip. So I got back home... and forgot to get a new ferroule. Ugh... I thought I would only miss the 1st quarter of the Patriots/Chargers, but when I saw it was a blowout, I decided to head on back over. Got the ferroule, made it back home, mixed the epoxy and glued it up. Tomorrow I will put the new grip on, get it marked,and all will be good to start using it again on Tuesday.
  2. Yeah... Gonna head over to Golf Galaxy and pick up a new shaft. Shaft is a few/several years old. My 3 iron has been my main club I use when starting practice, drills, etc. Many years ago, i decided that if I was hitting my 3 iron well, then the other clubs would be good also. Prior to that, if I started practice, i would start with a higher lofted club, and by the time i got to the 3 iron, I might not be hitting it too well. So now i always start with 3 iron, then pw, then driver, then 4i, then 9i, 5i, 8i, 6i, 7i, 60, 56, 52, then random... But the 3 iron gets many, many more reps with speed drills than does 52* for instance. So i think i just weakened a spot over time or it was a bad spot that was strong enough for several years, but finally had had enough. Thanks for the comment.
  3. Today, during swing speed training drills, my 3 iron shaft broke as it hit my back shoulder. What a sad, sad day. I wasnt even hitting balls during this particular drill. My full swing 3 iron swing speed is 102 mph currently. Maybe it was a weak spot and it was getting heated during my drills and over time it just went. What a downer. 👎

    Time for USGA to Rethink Amateur Status Rules

    Thanks... I realized that when I was posting, but decided to let it fly due to all the typing I did and the different perspective. I'm definitely enjoying the forum. Thanks for,the warm welcome.

    Time for USGA to Rethink Amateur Status Rules

    My opinion is that SOME amateurs have the financial wherewithal combined with drive and focus to spend all day working on their games... Lots of teenagers and young adults who live at home have this benefit. Compare that with a PGA teaching pro who spends most of his time in the pro shop and gives the occasional lesson... and really doesn't get much time on the range or much time to play... because he is greeting clients, setting tee times, zoning merchandise. Taking phone calls... and I think one can see that he has a gripe that could be viewed as valid. Working at a golf course as a teaching pro probably puts him at a disadvantage compared to those lucky ones who can call golf their "job" without declaring Professional Status. IMHO teaching pros should not be in the same category as plating pros (including mini-tour). But the rules are the rules and it is all made very clear, so those who choose that path are doing so with their eyes wide open. I'd be willing to guess that many teaching pros would get smoked by a number of amateurs in tournament play. I remember when I was younger working in pro shops and health clubs... After working there all day, the last thing i wanted to do was work out or practice. Needed to get away from work. I'd guess some others out there probably feel the same way.
