    Anyone Just Accept Their Swing?

    I would say that I have accepted my swing; at least for the time being. As things are right now, I don't have time for more than the occasional round of golf. If I'm lucky I'm playing once a month; usually more like once every other month. Between work and two young kids, that's not likely to change for at least a few years. Once it does however, I'll be back to practicing and looking to make improvements.

    True Strike Golf Mat

    The Golf Smith that used to be near me had a bunch of these in their hitting bays. I always thought that they were very good.

    Tiger Woods Master Catch-All Discussion

    I think that Tiger is going to be just fine playing multiple weeks in a row. Like you said, it's not like he does nothing. I really think that the injury stuff is overplayed; it seems like that is done with now.
  4. It's really hard to go wrong with one of the major companies out there. Nike, Adidas, Ashworth, etc. all make some really good clothes and if you keep an eye out you can get some great prices as well. While not pants, I have some shirts and shorts from Linksoul that I really like; you should check them out as well.

    Swing Advice for Saturated Fairways

    That sounds about right to me.

    Do You Hit Full Shots With High Lofted Wedges?

    Generally, no. I'll hit full wedge shots with my 52° and that's about it.

    The march of technology?

    Yup. Pretty much this. Most of the technology is centered around producing good results on not so good swings. For the OP, both clubs may essentially have the same "max" yardage, but I'd say that he's more likely to get more consistent results (get to that "max" yardage) more often with the new driver.

    Wedge gapping

    I used to be pretty concerned about having specific gap intervals between wedges, but I've come to realize that loft is just one factor. What's more important is the distance gapping between the clubs and then being able to hit the in between shots. I like what @iacas does (although I've always been too lazy to do it myself) of putting a label on the shaft of each wedge of the distance it goes with a full, 3/4, 1/2, and 1/4 swing.
  9. There are a lot of variables with drivers and loft is just one. Shafts, as @ScottyT pointed out can make a difference. In addition to that the CG of the club has a big influence as well. Take the Taylormade SLDR from a few years back; with the CG so far forward, people had to "Loft Up" to get the proper trajectory.

    What tee to play from?

    That's my zone as well.

    Returning Defective Clubs to the Manufacturer

    I'd start at the point of purchase, so in this case Golf Galaxy. More than likely they'll reorder and probably send the other one back to PING for credit.
  12. That's probably the best use for them. Old clubs, like @Vinsk said, typically don't have any value, at least from a monetary standpoint. The value in them is taking them out the range, using them, and seeing if golf is something you might enjoy.

    The Score Caddy

    Nope. Seems unnecessary to me.

    Played An Almost Perfect (for me) Nine Last Night

    Nice job! It's nice when everything starts working and you have confidence on the course.

    Predict Tiger's 2019 Season

    I voted 2-3 wins and one major. He's playing so damn well right now and we're still not a year into the comeback. He'll get better. With the majors, he obviously does well at Augusta, it's hard to bet against him at Pebble, and he's won at Bethpage Black as well. I'm not sure he gets more than one major just because of how deep the field is but one seems doable. Also, I still think he has a win in him this year.
