shot a 95 this weekend, which consisted of a 52 on the front nine and a 43 on the back.

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

Golfing is for golfers.


Of this I'm sure.

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 Smiley

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.

Lol, it's a whole new world for me to seem my ball flight like that Grin

Saturdays round should be fun. playing with three other guys at 1:00 followed by a party at one of their house for the ND vs Florida St. game.
other guys are pretty damn bad golfers but multiple coolers will be sneaked into the carts for some pre-game festivities Wink

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 Embarrassed

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

This is pretty accurate - wheels were going to come off soon.

Start out real conservative, swinging easy and not doing too much.  Hit a few good ones, get some confidence, then start fucking things up royally.

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....
