  1. I voted Taylormade. I like my old Burner 2.0 irons and even though I can't hit it very well, my R11 driver is still a nice club. Similar to what was mentioned before, I think I would choose irons first and build from there. Their new wedges look terrific and I think I'd be able to play them. I like Callaway, Ping and Titleist as well.
  2. Well, it is a game.But, I can see where a repeated phrase can get annoying, but I don't have an issue with it being called the game of golf. I don't see calling it a game as pretentious or snobby either....but the Patrons...THAT is pretentious!
  3. If that was a real event, I think we'd have seen it played over and over every year! I wish it was real, it sounds amazing!
  4. I haven't played that little course in Abita, but I have hit some balls at the range. Covington CC is usually where I play. It's nothing special and actually isn't as nice as it used to be. It's a decent track but could be a lot better with a little work put into it. Sadly Covington CC doesn't have a driving range so it's tough for me to get practice in unless I drive out to Abita, or just play. I'm recovering from a detached retina and surgery, but I'm hoping to get back on the course in September. Maybe we can play around at some point down the line.
  5. Very late in the year...but my golf year is basically just starting. I've only played 45 holes so far in 2019. 1. Play more golf! 2. Get a good bit of range time in 3. Stop slicing my driver 4. Take a few lessons 5. Have my game in decent enough shape to play consistently in 2020.
  6. I struggle with my driver constantly. I'll have rounds where I really strike the ball well and can hit it 235-245. Then there are rounds where I'm hitting huge slices and I just give up and go to my 3 wood. I can hit it 200-210 and fairly straight, so often times, I'll just start with the 3 wood and never even pull the driver, even on par 5's. I'm never quite sure what the differences are between my swings. I agree with the comments above, practice and range time is a must. I'm also inclined to get a couple of lessons when I can find the time and money. I will say, I always score better when I can get off the box well, because my confidence rises on good tee shots. If I'm in the woods or the bad rough or as often happens, in the other fairway, I get frustrated and my game suffers.
  7. Welcome to The Sand Trap! You're going to enjoy it here!
  8. Welcome! We must be close! I'm in Covington! You're going to love the forum! I'm just getting back to golf as well, but I was never anywhere close to a 7....or even a 17! Where are you playing?
  9. Welcome! You're going to enjoy the forum. It's the best on the web!
  10. Welcome! I'm new here too and have found it to be the best golf forum on the web by far!! You'll enjoy it. I'm a big fan of Austin! I used to cover Texas for my job and always loved my time in Austin.
  11. I found this ancient thread, so I'm asking the question again... We have a guys trip to Asheville in October. Anyone have some suggestions as to best places to play?
  12. I played a friends Mack Daddy 4 wedges earlier this year and liked the clubs a lot, so I finally pulled the trigger and bought a set. I've typically played Cleveland wedges, but these seemed to fit my game. I really love the look of them too. And, I got them at fantastic price! I also upgraded my putter grip which was long over due. I love my old putter, so just a new grip. Anyone play the Mack Daddy's? What do you think of them?
  13. That's insane! The PGA is going to have to enforce their rules with this guy.
  14. That doesn't sound right at all! Clearly the sign said "free club fitting - no purchase necessary" and the customer took them at their word. Tipping is never "required" at any establishment. Customers of any service choose whether to tip or not.I'm glad the customer refused.
  15. Yep! He's having a great start, let's see if he can finish well. He seems to be in a pretty good mental state and swinging the clubs well.
