  1. I have a 10-year Callaway stand bag. Great bag but it needs to get replaced - the legs still function which is amazing but the zippers are either broken or offline. My only compliant about the stand bag is that it will not sit straight when strapped on the back of the cart. Does anyone have a stand bag that "rides well"?
  2. I like to play after work in the summer. Tee off around 5 or 6pm and get in 18 holes. I have 2 questions: 1) Can anyone recommended a belt that will not stain khaki shorts? I have the run-of-the-mill leather belt but need a different material. 2) Can anyone recommend a breathable golf short? I am looking for something that has a 10-11 inch inseam. Thanks in advance.
  3. Besides Pebble, Spyglass and Spanish Bay, what are some other good choices in the Carmel area? I have a full week there and would like to get some more rounds in at lower green fees. Also, any suggestions for courses in or around SFO?
  4. Age

    started playing 5 years ago when I was 23.
  5. Read the red book, several weeks ago and thought it was a great. What other books by Penick are worthwhile reads?
  6. I went through similar experience three weeks ago. Bought a set of custom-fit Titleist AP2's, spent a ton of $$$$ and could not get the ball in the air and hit the dreaded shank shot every other time. My advice is to stick it out. I too sold my older set and was contemplating buying back a similar set just to get through the end of the season. I had a set of cavity-backed irons for the first 5 years I played this game and decided my scoring had hit a plateau. I found a new pro and he changed my grip. I had to go through 8 painful range sessions and now I am striking the ball hands down better than I ever had. I would start by hitting half shots with a higher lofted iron or pw - just to get a feel for making solid contact. Ignore the distance and get the feel for a solid strike. I also hit a bucket of balls without my golf cleats bc I was too active with my lower body trying to compensate. Get a lesson from a PGA professional, go to the range and hit a bucket a day. I do not suggest hitting anymore than this bc it can be counterproductive.
