    Club Fitting

    Hello my name is Charles. Recently started playing golf. Purchased a used set of ping irons and I am wondering should I be fitted to them. thanks.
  2. I am new to the scene here in Carson and Reno I am from the Bay Area in California I enjoy often a lot of the beautiful costal golf spots there, few buddies of mine have brought me to a few nice gold grounds out here. I wanted to know most personally recommend golf grounds here in Northern Nevada. Seeking to find spots, I’m no professional but I enjoy golfing for the fun and the atmosphere of it. Shared some pictures of fun times in Pebble Beach beautiful weather love it there I go often.
  3. Hi all.. I've played golf off and on over the past 30 years (more off than on) but I'm picking it up again.. I've always used my Dads old clubs (767 pro series) which are old tech in a modern world, and I want to get modern... All the advice I see on buying clubs talks about beginners.. I'm not quite that.. I can, for example, hit my old 3 iron 180 ish metres, straight, as well as chip, pitch, putt etc...... but I've never bought clubs.. what advice would you give a first time buyer who is not strictly a beginner? NB I live in France, if anyone has any good buying experiences...
  4. Hey guys - been awhile since I posted, but i wanted to introduce everyone to a new version of golf I have been playing with my friends the last couple years... Click To See Rules This is a really fun way to play because it takes a lot of stress off the blow up holes because you are always playing for points over score. Anyone else do anything like this with their buddies?
  5. Hello, everyone. So, after over a decade I finally decided to buy new irons rather than continue to use the box set I bought from Sports Authority (are they still in business?). The new irons are scheduled to come in in about a week and a half and I had a couple of questions I was hoping people might be able to help me out with. 1) When I get the irons, is there anything I should do with them before I use them to practice or play? 2) Is there anything I can or should do to, for lack of a better phrase, keep them looking pretty and shiny? Thanks for any advice!
  6. New to the game and forums just wanted to introduce myself. from left to right in the photo is me(robert) my brother and my friend, If I was going to play 3 man best ball this would be my group.
  7. Hello Sand Trap community, I have always been a CD-ROM (just read & never writes) of your forum and another for quite a while now. Just wanted to join the community and say hi to you all. A little background of myself: I am 29, golfed on & off for 15+ years (most rounds I played a year was probably 15 though I do hit the range 2-3 times a week). I have a decent swing with a faster tempo than most (will post a video when I have the chance)...average Asian built so I do not hit it a long way (average 265 carry) Never got my handicap card but my best round was a 73 at my local golf course (par 71) and averaged 78-81 at my city's golf courses (British Columbia) I have been taught for 3+ years and is enthusiastic to teach recreationally as a hobby. (heard so many debates between CGTF or CPGA, or USGTF or PGA for Americans)...the fact is I do want to teach on my weekends as a hobby. Unlike many of you, I am a HUGE Wilson Staff fan since I first started with the FAT SHAFTs...thats right! I have fiddled with many of their products slightly before P.Harrington won 3 majors and knew they were the 'unappreciated' brand. Anyways...HI all!=) and I look forward in responding and commenting like all of you. cheers
  8. Hello Sandtrappers, My name is Justin Tobin. I'm 32 years old and live in the Philadelphia area. I work as an event staging video technician for corporate (and collegiate) meetings and events. I sometimes work events at very nice golf courses, and it's torture looking out at the course not being able to play. My golfing background is not extensive at all, but it's somewhat interesting. I began playing at 15 years old with a set of junior lefty clubs; I'm naturally left-handed. I took two group lessons and played a few rounds but gave up the game about a year later due to a higher interest at the time in other sports. About 12 years later (at 28 years old), I picked the game back up playing very casually maybe one or two times a month with my buddies, and would rent lefty clubs when I played. I never broke 100 during this time and would routinely end up shooting around 110. About two years ago, my uncle gave me his old set of clubs and they were right-handed, so I relearned the game right-handed. After some practice (this was the first time I had actually put effort into practicing and developing a swing by myself), I played my first right-handed round and shot my normal 110. I had lost power switching sides, but my consistency improved (I was still putting LH but everything else RH). After about a year with very minimal improvement, I realized that I enjoy and play the game enough to justify making a big (for me) purchase and buying a set of LH clubs. On a friend's recommendation and after my own research, I decided to build and purchase my own set of custom LH clubs from Gigagolf. It is a good starter set for me given that I'm essentially starting over. After receiving my clubs exactly one week ago today, I have since become obsessed with the game and developing myself a new swing from scratch. I started by reading Harvey Penick's Little Red Book, and then watching a bunch of free videos I've found from various sources on the Internet. I decided to study Gary Player's golf swing since he has been a very successful player and has a similar build to me (we are both short at 5'7"). I haven't adopted his famous step-through follow-through, but have listened to all the instructional videos of his I could find. After 8 hours of practice over two days, I played my first round on that 2nd day walking my local course and scored a 111. I shot a 51 on the front, but then I guess I was sore and tired because I really ran out of steam shooting a very ugly 60 on the back (this was also my first time playing strictly to USGA rules). I practiced for four hours again the next day, and the following day played another round on a much tougher course and shot a 107. Anyway, after much research I stumbled upon this site, and I'm excited to be here! I'm looking forward to learning from the experience of everyone in here as well as offer up any insights I may have despite my very beginner status. Once I have time, I plan to upload videos of my swing in the member swing forum, and be active offering input there. Thanks in advance to any and all who help me with my progression. Best, Justin
  9. Hi there, thanks for reading also, I signed up specifically to seek help with this unique issue so I am grateful of any feed back. Okay so heres some background, Ill try to not be overly wordy. I am 28, not the best at golf and was given a set of taylormade R7 irons years ago. I usually shoot 105-110 but I hit pretty decent shots and 3 putt or lose a ball and 1 putt. I have started golfing more and wanted to get a newer (used set under 250) of irons. Hit a few dif 7 irons, jpx-800, tm 2.0, ping g15 and liked jpx's the best. So I found a set on ebay, ordered them, they were supposed to show up today and I got a CAR DASHBOARD. Thats a whole nother thread. So ill get my money back, no big deal but heres the dilema. I went to play it again sports (sporting goods store that pays cash for unwanted gear) and I sold my R7 Irons today. Needless to say, ebay turned me off bc I am just frustrated (more at USPS) but what are thoughts on getting a few brand new custom irons aand slowly piecing together a bag. I am 6ft 7 and big hands, so maybe a custom fitting would benefit me? I cant afford a new set of irons custom, but I could work with my Driver, 3 wood, SW, and putter. If I pay 80-90 for a custom ping g30 for my 'bigness' as my friends put it, would that benefit more? I can stock the rest of the bag with a set of spalding something or others that are at my parents. Was thinking a 6, 7 iron (can hit that off the deck about 150 with my r7) and possibly a 9? Anyways thanks for any input. I really appreciate it.
