  1. Played 27 yesterday only to find out that fading the ball is the easiest way to hit fairways. I hit every fairway except 3 on the first 9 holes. I used to be the type of guy that would rather hook three balls out than slice one but after yesterday i will gladly play the cutter. Knowing it was going to come back everytime i was able to swing more aggressive and get more yardage instead of trying to guide it into the fairway. I always try to fix the cut but i feel this is my stock shot. No manipulation, no swing thoughts. Aim right rough and let it feed into fairway. Anyone else have this in play?
  2. Heard the saying no glove no love???? It appears to be the opposite for me... went outta town last weekend and lost golf glove......shot 70 without it. was hitting nice draws and pure irons......any thoughts??????
  3. ive found that pure shots dont go as far as slightly missed shots. solid means more spin, more spin means less distance
  4. started golf my freshman year, varsity my soph, #1 junior and senior year........I was notorious for starting off bad, finally one round made a 10 on the first hole (senior yr) on a short par 5. Followed it up with 4 birdies and a eagle on the last hole (short par 4 downhill hit a three wood to about a foot).........shot 1 under 35 with a 10
  5. ooooooooo the life of a failing teacher......
  6. i think pros favor the fade because they can hit it much higher and land softer
  7. Hit full shots all the way around the course.........short par 4 like 360......hit a iron that you will hit twice.....keep it in play....no three putts........fairways no matter how far back u are............i shot 78 with a seven iron off the tee one day.......the goal was to hit every fairway, missed the last hole by a yard but still made par..........7 iron was in my mind the straightest stick in bag so i hit it off the tee box all day 13 of 14 fairways and a hit green on the 12th hole that played 165.....
  8. I will tell guys who dont know my home course to not hit driver off certain holes because of water hazards........is that ok to do?
  9. i got mp 57s right now and im thinking about going the other way to more forgiving......when i was playing alot i grooved a good swing and i could hit these muscle backs, but with the better technology to hit it higher and farther why do u wanna go lower and harder to hit?
  10. also i hit alot of range balls when i had em (1000+ balls a week)and had to bend them after 1st year.......of course wasnt married that time of my life haahahaha. pay someone to check the lie and loft of all the clubs you might be surprised
  11. I disagree with all..........if you slice aim left side of green......if you draw aim at right side of green......play for your strengths also.........distance control is as good as line.......right distance=closer putt, chip..............whats better? 30 ft putt or 15 yrd chip/pitch? control distance and you will hit more greens
  12. take it from me a thick grip messes with your mind and depending on how much thicker the grips are can mess with your swing.......i had bought a g15 driver off ebay and it arrived with a huge grip. it felt very nice until i got it on the course.....wooooww it went everywhere....changed to a golf pride multi cord and now its hitting fairways.....i would change all of em to the same grip to be more accurate ps i had a set of 990 a while back...hit em good for about 2 years and switched........last year i played a round with a old friend who plays on the hooters tour and he still hits em
  13. Is it ok to have a completely matching set of golf clubs???? Im asking because im thinking about switching my irons to match my g15 driver and 4 wood that im killing down the middle........i currently play mizuno mp 57 but i dont play as much as i used to and i think i need to go to some more forgiving irons......any one out there play g15 irons?? once a week is about all i play ..........any other advice is appreciated..
  14. I know the feeling too well......started golf my freshman year, varsity my soph, #1 junior and senior year........I was notorious for starting off bad, finally one round made a 10 on the first hole (senior yr) on a short par 5. Followed it up with 4 birdies and a eagle on the last hole (short par 4 downhill hit a three wood to about a foot).........shot 1 under 35 with a 10.......it was that day that i realized that i was one of the better players in my area, and the pressure was on the other guys and not me......i just needed to go out and play golf and let them try to press......hope this helps
  15. OK....last round of golf i hit 4 balls off the hosel while hitting pitch shots.........im a decent chipper, but i was feeling weird and almost scared to hit the 20-40 yrd pitch shot.........any tips??? after hitting the hosel shots i just started to open the 60 degree wide open and hit huge flops.......which got me on the green but not close enough to make birdies...........
