    What driver brand do you use?

    Cobra Bio Cell Had it for a few years now, love it's overall looks especially when I'm standing over it. Has some loft adjustability too, which I plan to use once I start hitting it better.
  2. End of October is usually the norm, but it's really weather dependent. (For example, a few courses were opened on Christmas Day a few years ago, because there was a warm patch!) On the other hand, we've had a warmer than usual summer, so this may continue into the fall. I'd say bring the clubs, worst case there's a few good year-round ranges here as well.

    What tee to play from?

    I mostly play whites. I'll occasionally play from the blues on certain courses so that I can practice some longer, tougher shots. For example, I recently added a 3 iron to my set and played a round from the blues just so I could hit that particular club more often.

    Best Shot of the Week

    203 yard par 3 from the tips, downhill and surrounded by bunkers. Hit a 3H with a nice draw to 5 foot. Missed the birdie putt but was happy with par nonetheless.

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    41 on the front nine of my home course from the white tees. No doubles, made excellent contact with all my irons, was one of my best!

    What are Your 2017 Golf Goals?

    Going out for the first time this season, figured it's a good time to post my goals: 1) Make better contact with my iron shots (i.e. those shots where you don't even feel yourself hitting the ball) 2) Play courses in my area that I haven't played before/play more rounds overall 3) Get my chipping and putting back to what it used to be

    Recap Your 2016 Golf Goals

    1) Sort've. Halfway through the season, I decided to go ahead and just play my natural fade and forgo fixing my swing to fix it. It worked out, as I had a fair idea of where the ball would be going. 2) Yes, mainly with the driver due to #1 3) I had a couple, but I just didn't get to play enough. 4) I didn't play more rounds overall, but I did play courses that I'd only played once or twice before, as opposed to my regular courses.
  9. I played a "course" in my area called Parkshore Golf Club. It's interesting to say the least. The course is dead centre in the middle of an industrial zone. Large industrial warehouses on most sides and a railway line on the other side. Awhile back it was a pretty nice course, one of the longest 9-hole courses in Ontario. Recently however they changed owners and the place has gone downhill. Bad greens, flooded fairways, debris and dead birds all over the course. Rumor has it that the new owner doesn't care about the course and just wants to sell the land to developers.
  10. Mid par 3 for me. I'm always interested in how each course I play at designed their par 3's. It's cool to see all the different things they think of to make the hole difficult since they can't rely on distance to do that.

    How many courses have you played?

    I've played about 30, all in Ontario (actually, all within about an hour of me). There's a ton of great courses near me that I haven't played and I'm making an effort this year to play a lot more of them. I like collecting the little pencils with the course's name on them and if I really like the course I'll buy a ball marker or something.

    Describe Your Last Round of Golf in One Sentence

    Came back from seven shots behind to beat a friend.

    Best Shot of the Week

    Mine was on a 134 yard par 3, over water to a downwards sloping green (towards the water). I hit an 8I just over the green and had a downhill chip towards the water. I chipped on with a SW okay, to about 20 feet, then made the slinging downhill putt for par.

    What'd You Shoot Today?

    First round of the season, shot an 84 at a new par 63 course in my area. My friend and I decided to make it a competitive match. Long story short, he was beating me by five shots after the front nine (by seven shots after 13 holes). I then went +1 for the last five holes (my partner had a Speith-like collapse during this point) and I managed to beat him by one shot after parring the final par 5 18th hole. I was pretty proud of myself for staging a comeback and was impressed with how I was swinging things on the back nine. Hopefully it's a sign for the rest of the season!

    Changes in your bag that you are most excited about

    I'm planning on upgrading my 56* sand wedge to either a Vokey SM5/6 or Callaway Mack Daddy PM grind. I haven't done much research into either of these clubs yet. I'm looking for a club mainly for my short game, something to use around the greens, in rough, or to play those tricky shots. Basically from about 40 yards in. Looking forward to testing out the both clubs, and the different Vokey grinds too.
