    *it makes going to the range kinda fun, but why do I need to know how slow my swing is, and how bad my smash factor is? :blush:
    2) Scotty Cameron putters (love mine but it's man jewelry) / ?? (I just agree wanted to throw Scotty's putters under the bus again for some reason :smile: )

    Driving/Utility irons, for somebody that is a good iron player, i think driving irons are not used enough. It has changed the way i approach the tee box and eliminated a lot of strokes from drives that were putting me in a bad spot, all because i was chasing more distance.

    It must be 18 holes to be a round of golf / playing 6, 9, 12 or whatever might fit in a shorter time period

    How to play golf.
    Hit the ball.
    Find the ball
    Repeat until the ball is in the hole.
    Have fun.

    Marking every putt like you’re on tour/keeping pace
    The “golf is dying” argument/spacing tee times 10 minutes apart
    Green courses at all times/fast and firm conditions (a little brown is fine)
