  1. Good to hear things are coming together for you. I myself had an encounter with wrist shattering fat shots off the mat. Haven't been playing for over a week due to the bad wrist which couldn't have came at a worse time with everything reopening.
  2. How is a cart with wheels on the fringe worse with say 25 lbs per wheel if a two wheeled cart divided by about a 3 sq inch contact patch (8-12psi) an issue vs. s human weighiing 200 lbs who is walking which means at a some point in the stride there is 200 lbs on about 6 square inches(one foot in the air for step, weight on toes of trailing foot at 45-40psi? (Sorry to revive this thread, just saw the original posting date.Don't see delete option)
  3. Before. Could find ay over the pocket picks. This is my 9 foot olhausen. Was a tournament table out east in the early 2000s I would guess. A guy in portsmouth Ohio had three of them and I bought the last one for a cool $900(around 1600 installed). Had it Diamonized winter of 2018-19 and it has been a great table ever since.
  4. Had to take measures into my own hands today as all local courses have been shut down.This nearby park is rarely if ever used so I decided to get my tax dollars worth today.
  5. I played 9 holes today in sopping wet conditions from overnight rain. At this municiple course (Madden Hills) in Dayton OH they left the cup coming out of the ground 2-3 inches. I am assuming that this is in response to corona virus to prevent people from putting their hands in the cup or on the flag stick. It could also be weather related but I had not seen that ever before.It really bothered me at first but once I accepted it as intentional and not odd mistake after seeing the same on whole two, it wasn't so bad.
  6. Set a new personal best on a shorter local track today(4932 yds). 81! 6 pars, 2 birdies and only 1 seven. 10 GIR and 40 putts.lol. Left myself some long putts today. Did sink a 25 footer to birdie a 535 yd par 5 (the second hardest hole on the course). Wonderful day. This comes just 1 week after a lesson,whole new grip and swing.
  7. Thanks Erik, I will look into Ernest Jones and keep my eye out for a medicine ball. Shot a better video tonight with more FPS and audio removed.
  8. Please delete if video is deemed too poor. Camera settings were off, should have vid with higher fram rate soon. I've been Playing Golf for: 1 year My current handicap index or average score is: 23.4 but shooting worse this last 2 weeks My typical ball flight is: High with good contact. low sclice when hit bad, Straight and short when hit super fat. The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Irons and pitching. My irons have always been hit and miss. And always very high and short. 5 iron 145-155 carry. Videos:
  9. Shot about 17 over my average using these old copper faced MT Tourney Clokorum M75s. I would say 9 of the 17 was due to me not having a swing today.
  10. The small headed metal woods from the mid 80's was the key to your statement. I have 80's metal Macgregor clubs and I easily drive 15-20 yards longer then with my persimmons. I would argue that if you played with persimons you would see where the other 7 shots comes from.
  11. I don't know the correct answer. I consider them blades but there is definitely a shape to them.Once I shortened my swing I was nailing greens with these things and getting my usualy distance, the greens were litteraly frozen solid though so balls were bouncing off or rolling to the back edge often.
  12. Hello Snapfade. Fun to know these Clevlands were once valuable. I am well aware of Guided By Voices and their cult following. My neighbor across the street was actually collaborating with one of the GBV members a year or two ago so I would see him pull up.(Not sure which member). I haven't devoted any time to listen to the band yet. Just a youtube video or two. As for the Clevelands. I am not over the moon about the shafts. Much heavier feel then my old Ram's with fiber shafts. I recently picked up a mint complete set of Mcgregor Jack Nicklaus CG1800s with steel shafts 3-SW + 1,3,5 wood that feel alot lighter/ better to swing for a high handicapped like myself. After playing a great back 9 with a set of 70's macgregor tourney blades the other day I have learned a ton about my swing and look forward to revisiting the Clevelands soon. I also just added a matching 3 iron to my Cleveland set. I thought I wouldn't miss a 3 iron but to me it's just not a full bag without one reguardless of how infrequently I hit it,lol. I had a considerable gap between my 21 degree hybrid (175-200 yds) and my 4 iron (145-165 yds). Cheers- I was just checking out the PGA info on the clubs and saw this " • Designed for women golfers of every skill level" Ha, I didn't think TA7s were a womens club? Maybe this is why I struggle to hit them as 6'1 225# man.
  13. I just ordered a left handed set of Strata Plus clubs to give to my father as a retirement gift for his retirement this thursday to hopefully get him back in the game.After arrival I studied the box carefully and it is hard to see how they are considering this a 14 piece set when there are only 11 listed items on the box. Is there a golf ball, tee and glove inside to make it a 14 piece?
  14. Had a magical day today on and off the Course. Went thrifting and found a immaculate and complete set of MacGregor, Jack Nicklaus cg1800 clubs. 3-S + 1,3,5 wood ($11) . I also found a Ping O blade (2.99) and a Ping Anwer 5k ($22). I decided to go test out these clubs on a local short course. 4,932 yards from the whites. The Macgregors felt so so good. Feel much lighter then my Cleveland TA7 and more comfortable/ forgiving. Had the most GIR I have ever had on this track (11). Ended up shooting an 83 which is nearly my best round on this course with a $11 set of clubs! Great day! If i could have eliminated all the three putts I would have easily been in the 70's. I felt my self trying to sink birdies and rather then make pars. Once I realized this was the issue I Parred the last two holes just focusing on getting the ball close. I have a feeling the Macgregors will be my primary clubs for a good while.
  15. The results are in. Today I went to the range with a specific goal of ranging in my new to me Cleveland TA7 irons. I have always known I don't get a lot of distance out of my irons, now I know exactly how little. All measurements are in yards carried. All with range balls. 4i= 140-145 5i= 135-145 6i= 130-150 7i= 110-140 8i= 130-135 9i= 90-100 pw= 50-75 Didn't hit driver today but usually I carry about 200-220 driving with a 9 degree driver, plenty of roll out resulting in 220-250 drives. I am thinking swing speed and lack of hips have much to do with these results.I'm 6'1 225# large framed person.
