  1. Thanks for the reply. The 9-hole sounds like a good starting point - I'm not sure exactly how much time I'll have between work and sightseeing but there's always time for 9 right?
  2. Thanks for the reply. I don't know where I'm staying yet, but I know a good portion of my time will be at the University of Oslo. Any other thoughts? Thanks!
  3. I recently found out I'm being sent there in September for two weeks. I would love to get a round in while I'm there - anyone have recommendations? A couple of other questions... 1. Do any of the courses offer club rental? 2. I'm a HACK - a fast and ready one, but a hack nonetheless. No two ways about it (34 HCP). Will anyone care? Thanks!
  4. Wife got me lessons there (CP) a couple of years ago for christmas. For the life of me, I can't remember the guys name, but I do remember he was very patient with me as I had just picked up the game. I still suck, but that's for other reasons out of his control.
  5. I'm hitting Slingshot OSS's - if they're any similar, a clubfitter told me yesterday that they don't bend very much or very well for that matter, and are susceptible to breakage if attempted. YMMV.
  6. How does that saying go? "Don't blame the tool, blame the craftsman?" I went yesterday to chat with a clubfitter, and he told me that my irons don't bend well and are highly susceptible to breakage if he were to try. He let me hit a few with the tape and the fitting board just to see where I stood.... Straight into the net. Square on the face. Middle of the sole. Every time... Why the %$#* can't I do this on the course! Guess I just gotta make time for the range. Luckily the one by me has an early-bird special. Thanks again for the advice!
  7. Thank you all for the great advice, it is defintely appreciated! I like the idea of just stopping by the range for 15 minutes on the way home - definitely seems manageable. I don't have a backyard, as I live in an apartment building so that's out of the question I guess the crux of my question lies in the quote above - I do plan on going for at least a couple more lessons, but with my limited amount of practice time, how likely is my swing to change that dramatically? I don't see myself being able to get to the range for any more than those "quick hits" here and there any time in the nea
  8. Thanks GDIB, I appreciate the advice. One question - what do you mean by "forget swing- it's a trap?"
  9. Hi All, Noob here (to the forum, as well as the game - only been playing 2+ years), please forgive my ignorance. Not sure if this is the right place to ask this question, and I did search with no results. Anywho... I've taken lessons intermittently over the past couple of years, and my swing is fairly consistent (at least I think it is), however my shots are not. While they run the gamut direction-wise, they have a tendency to go right maybe 40% of the time. When I first started playing, I did have a rather large slice, which I have worked out for the most part. Now, when they do go r
  10. Eff it... just start a whole product line!
  11. Straight jacket and square wires, both with black iridium lenses - I like the straight jackets better, but truthfully it's whatever I grab/happens to be in my car when I'm going to the course. Only downside is the f'ed up tan line I end up with on my face
