  1. I am also a fan of the Srixon AD333. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-SRIXON-GOLF-2008-AD333-GOLF-BALLS-3-DOZEN-/380355760660?pt=US_Golf_Balls&hash;=item588ef85214#ht_2714wt_1398 http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Srixon-AD333-Golf-Balls-2-Dozen-24-99-/150634029294?pt=US_Golf_Balls&hash;=item23127ce0ee#ht_500wt_1180
  2. If they weren't constantly changing the size and shape of club heads, people would be upgrading far less frequently. It is a lot of marketing. I am sure there is some honest proven technology in there too, but I would wager it is mostly hype.
  3. My girlfriend has repeatedly asked me to take her golfing, to which I reply, "Man's game, honey." That is usually followed by a dirty look and few minutes of silence. I did however say she could drive my golf cart and fetch me and my friends beer if she feels so inclined.
  4. I don't agree. Cheating on your wife is never ok, but sex addiction (only speculating here given the number of infidelities) is a serious problem. I don't think that one vice, no matter the size or scope, automatically makes you an entirely bad person. But the man clearly needs help. No doubt about that.
  5. So after considering everyone's suggestion I went to the golf shop and purchased a 4h (went with a taylormade '08 burner off the demo rack). It felt great in the shop so I will see how it works into my game and decide on a second club from there.
  6. That is just the thing-- I don't "hate" my putter. I would like to spend some more time putting with it (much more than my recent once a year) before I pull the trigger on a new one. As of right now, I couldn't say with any certainty if I like or dislike it at all. All I know is that last time I was out and my putting sucked. I gotta believe that was mostly user error that much of which could be rectified with some practice.
  7. When I say get backk into it, I mean practice weekly and try to hit a course once a month or so. I really enjoy the driving range. Now the only questioon I have about a putter, is how does a putter make you better at putting? I mean as long as it has a flat face, what else is there in a putter? It seems to me that of all the clubs in the bag, the putter would have the least amount of effect on a shot. That is, practice and execution would be far more key than the club itself. And with that in mind, I feel nothing short of overwhelmed when looking at the putter selection. Any advice on how to shop for a putter?
  8. That is it right there. That is all I play with. The irons are oooooold. I think I got them when I was 15... i am 26 now. They (3-pw & putter) are a beginer set of Hippo's. I have no idea what the SW is except that it is old-- my cousin found it on a golf course and gave it to me. The driver is ~3 year old Nike Sasquach (i think)... I know it is a Nike and I paid ~$200 for it. Like I said, my approach shots from
  9. That is a shockingly accurate description. I always get crap for my swing when I am warming up-- until I crush it down the middle, and then it is "how in god's name do you stand like that and hit it straight?". And the answer I have no idea. All I know is if I can get the club face square to the ball and the direction I want it go, it usually turns out pretty good. With the frequency of my golfing the last 4 years (1-2 a year), that is all I have time to think about. Great advice about hitting two 7's instaed of shanking the 3. I am definitely going to do that next time out.
  10. Like I said, I played a lot when I was in HS, and I have played sports my whole life and am fairly coordinated. Not that I couldn't use lessons, but I am not out there duffing balls down the entire course. My worst club the last time I was out was my 3 iron. I couldn't hit that thing straight to save my life. I don't recall if I took a shot with the 4, but 5i and up I hit it pretty well on most shots. The 3i easily cost me the most strokes. So I would say I struggled most on long par 5's after the tee shot. The putting was pretty bad as well. I was on the green several times on the shorter holes with an opportunity for par that was blown by bad putting. As for the wedges I currently have just a pitch wedge and a sand wedge. My approach shots from
  11. To be brief-- I used to play a lot in HS and am trying to get back into it. I currently play about once a year at the company Christmas party and am tired of being the worst golfer on the course (this year makes it two in a row). That and I always forget how much I enjoy the game until the Christmas party rolls around. So here is the deal-- I have the budget for two new clubs. I currently have 1 driver, 3-9 irons, and the other bare essentials. After doing some reading I think I wand to add a 3H, but don't know if I should also add a 4h or a 5w instead. What do you guys think?
  12. I had an unusually nice shot out of the sand and was able to sink my first put.
  13. I am an accountant. I pretty much spend my day counting money, asking for money, and telling coworkers not to spend ours.
