Trump National GC, Rancho Palos Verdes (m)*= new to list I've played 8 of the top 30 in California, and it's pretty hard for me to argue that any of those eight shouldn't be on the list. Ram's Hill is a phenomenal course, and is probably the best of any that I've played, so I completely agree with it being at #4. Personally, I like Torrey Pines North better than the Stadium course. There are a few courses in my area (Eagle Falls, SilverRock, PGA West Norman) that I think are as good as many on the list.
  2. I would post the score and use the real scores on 10 and 11.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. Generally, no. I'll hit full wedge shots with my 52° and that's about it.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
