I play several times over the summer but by the 10th hole I am pretty tanked up.  Seems to help me though.  Best ever was 1 under on a back 9.  Any other scorecard got ripped up pissed on.  ;D

Going tomorrow to play a round on a simulator.  Just to get the swings in.

I'm a little sore from softabll two nights ago from 10-11:30, indoors.  You forget over the winter which muscles you don't use at all.

Most excruciating pain ive ever endured, was after i went swimming in a buddys pool for a couple hours. I had not swam in years previously. WOW.

I hear you.  Alot of functional stuff doesn't really get worked enough.  I do use bands when I lift, but a full on softball cut is not the same.

Always wanted a Cameron.  They feel perfect.

I was going to get one, but was playing a round at TPC Boston, when I noticed my putter was bent.  I bought a Ping in the clubhouse at the turn.  I like it, but it doesn't have that ultra heavy "guided" feel that the Camerons do.

kewl

I gots a older callaway big bertha(smaller head than the 360's out now), ping g2's from 2 to 4 and g5's from 5 to 9(I cant hit woods that well off the ground so i just use their hybrid irons)

got cleveland wedges but arent too fond of them and an old dunlap putter thats got no soft spot and is about 2 inches too long LOL

you guys ever use solus wedges?

i had a 56 that i lost that i freaking loved man, it was almost impossible to hit the ball thin with that club, real easy to trap the ball back in your stance, could make crazy flop shots with it and it was good around the green for those bump and runs.

Anybody here an avid hacker like myself ??? ;D

used to be. rarely play these days. once or twice a year i play 18. probably hit a bucket 3-4 times. at my bets i was capable of shooting mid 80's on a good day.  i am and was very inconsistent tho i have a textbook swing like david duval got really good ball control but im either right on the money, or i miss the mark by quite a bit. i tend to hit a hook on my bad shots. my arms turn through faster than my hips. except with a driver. i can hit a power fade sometimes by accident by whipping the hips through a bit too fast. the wrist tends to lag.



Title: Re: Anybody golf
Post by: tonymctones on March 29, 2011, 04:40:23 PM
I think the easiest way to lower your score is to know your game. If you know you dont have the length to make a shot, lay up to a comfortable range. If you know you spray a little bit with your driver and theres danger or its a narrow fair way, hit an iron.

basically stay in the short grass even if it means getting the green in one more shot b/c the majority of the time youre going to save yourself 2 shots by not going for the shot you werent sure of.

How far do the getbig golfers drive the ball?

I generally put the ball out about 250-270 with an easy just make good contact swing. If ive been hitting balls frequently and im comfortable in my contact ill make a full wind up and can put it out there about 280-310ish but i havent got one out there that far unless its down hill in sometime LOL

Love it....haven't wanted another putter since I got it.has a great feel and you can tell immediately if it's a good putt or not.

my dad has a condo in North Myrtle beach that I get to use a couple times a year.when I get my new Callaway irons I'm gonna leave my Wilson's, two older Cleveland wedges and a Odyssey putter {found one on sale for $100.00} doen there so I don't have to travel with my clubs.

me either, I thought it was all an act to draw sympathy when he first came back but he is clearly off. I havent been watching to much golf these days but I havent seen him look anywhere near his old form for even an entire round since the whole hooker gate deal.

I agree, ppl will cite equipment, technology, courses etc...I think its plain and simple that tiger is by and far the best golfer that has ever played the game. The most complete golfer from tee to green and from rough to sand trap that has ever played bar none.

Booze is most definitely "swing oil" for golf.

I can honestly say I've played in at least 5 scramble type torunaments where our scores on the back nine are completely better than on the front, right after drink 3-4 kicks in.

That's about the amount where you don't give a shit about your score, but haven't drank enough to fuck up your swing.  Works really well.

Never been in it.on the weekends it's used for events like communions and such.they have a little side bar thats about the size of a phone booth and a outside deck for us lowly golfers ::)


....and it's like $5-6 a beer and at least $10 for a burger.not that thats crazy pricing for my area but after a round of golf.no other course around charges that much.The bar down the street charges about the same and you get a free drink when you bring in your scorecard.

I'm probably the best golfer on Getbig.  Last week I scored 2 touchdowns and hit a three pointer at the buzzer to win the game for my team.  I'm probably gonna turn pro and I'll probably be the number 1 draft pick.  I hope so because my grandmother is about to get evicted from her house because of some unpaid back taxes.  I figure if sign a big golf contract with the Hartford Whalers or some other big market team I should get enough money to pay those taxes off and save the house.

84 from the whites on Sunday including a hole out from the fairway on a par four for an eagle.

You need to go ahead and move up to the ladies tees, stud.

Very very slowly getting back to a little consistency from shot to shot, hole to hole.

Hey man a 43 on the back makes you feel good after a 52 on the front, switch the nines and get a 52 on the back after a front of 43 and you'd be furious!

shot 87 from the whites on a tough course Sunday, two sevens and an eight or it would have been a great round.

I bought the new Callaway V series Big Bertha driver.....I have very low spin on my drives so I had to get a 10.5d head and turn it up to 11.5d and I also needed a stiff flex shaft made for 9.0d driver instead of the standard stiff shaft that came with it.

I cant ever remember or maybe I just never have hit my drives as long as straight as I am right now :)

Nice round. 

I have always hit my drives high, so I got a adjustible 9.5 Rocketballz driver with and HD-6 Matrix Ozik shaft (didn't know what it was when I bought it, was just looking for "S").

Anyway, can't do shit at when I put it to 8.5 degrees yet.

Driver then 6 iron, that must have been a sweet drive, or a dogleg?


a couple of years ago I played in Vermont with a dog leg par 5....we played three times in two days and every time I cut the dog leg and was on in two....never made the putt :-[

I am lucky in that I can hit a long ball, I have hit 9i before on par 5's for two, but my problem has always been my short irons and my putting, I got no feel and can't read the greens.

I'm an ok putter that can get hot....I've gotten much better by taking the sand wedge out of my hands unless I'm in a bunker or a very short chip.
anywhere from 25-125 yards out I now use my pitch or gap wedge with a shorter more controlled swing....no more trying to nuke a sand wedge!

I use my 9i or pw, around the green, and almost putt it, otherwise i use my 52deg or 58 deg from 30yds out, I don't use a SW, even in the bunker I use my 52 and open it up, as when you open it, it adds a lot more bounce to the sole of the club which helps in the sand

You have to do a lot of research IMO.  The new TM irons this year got shitty reviews from multiple sources, whereas the rocketbladez from 2 years ago got great write ups.  Problem is the manufacturer always has to conjure up something new every year, but it's not like the average distance off the tee has gone from 250 to 350 over the years with all the new "better than last year" clubs that appear every year.

I have no interest in them but just wanted to "see" them.
I like the Callaway xhot 2 irons much better. half the price with forgiveness while still having a "players" look to them. they also have very good reviews. {C'mon Santa!!!}

....the whole "2 clubs longer" that every club maker claims is bullshit anyway....all they're doing is changing the loft on the clubs so what use to be a three iron is now a four iron and so forth....
