  1. My buddy and I were playing the other day and got into a discussion about equipment, and how particular Pros are about their clubs. We debated how many shots would be lost if you handed a pro one of our bags during a tournament and he had to to play a full round with it. Given how good these guys are, I would imagine they would adapt pretty quick, but we were debating how many shots would be left on the table. It's as good a thing to debate as any when you're playing Muni golf and backed up 2 groups deep on the 3rd tee box !
  2. I recently started playing a better ball, and was curious on what people define as a scuff, and when it's bad enough to change out. Here's a pro v-1. Is a scuff like this worth changing the ball, or would this have little to no effect on the shot? I have a bunch of balls that fall into this category. Thanks
  3. I'm considering getting a new driver, and would like to have it custom fit. The shop I would be going to charges $125 for the fitting, plus the cost of the head, shaft, etc. I've never done this before and want to see if this is in even my budget. I know heads and shafts can vary significantly, but does anyone have an ball park estimates? Thanks.
  4. > @OleVirginia said: > Was going to write something about social media (and the media at large, really) emboldening people to overstep socially acceptable norms in the quest for their 15 minutes of viral fame but I don't really want to go down that rabbit hole. Instead, I'll chime in with a freezing cold take... New Yorkers are a--h----! > > TBM Not all of them! :) but a lot are ....any this is coming from one.
  5. I wanted to see if anyone here attended yesterday's first round , and if so what their thoughts were on the fans? I don't write very many posts on GolfWRX, but I have to say that attending Bethpage yesterday was pretty nauseating to say the least. I'm sure there will be people who throw around words like Snowflake, etc when they read this, but the etiquette or lack there of I witnessed yesterday was deplorable; and it was all under the heading of "Hey, I'm from NY". As someone who grew up on Long Island, I was embarrassed. I stood next to the tee-box on 7 watching Phil, Rory and Kisner come th
  6. Thanks for the suggestions guys.....have to figure out what to do ...or maybe nothing at all. Lord Helmet, I took the blue badges off years ago as well!
  7. Solar, thank you! I appreciate the feedback. I didn't realize there was a playability factor chart, good to know.
  8. I am a 15 Handicap. I got fitted for the clubs about 10 years ago. The fitting wasn't all that great. The first set of irons came with dynamic gold XP shafts, and my ball-flight in my shorter irons was ridiculously high. I'll be the first to admit that was probably due to my inability to learn how to flight the ball down at the time. I ended up selling the clubs and replacing them with another set of MX-200s, but with Dynamic Gold S300 shafts. I was told that these shaft might lower my ball-flight a bit, as they are heavier. Long story short I've been playing with this setup for the last 10 ye
  9. I've been a big fan of Luke for a while, and was surprised he's not playing the Honda.. I know he was out with a bad back last year...do you think this will be his last season?
  10. I wanted to write this post because every golfer at some point has their "Ah ha" moment where they think they finally "figured it out", are ready to go out and buy blades and buy a copy of paper Tiger. :) I highly doubt this is going to be my moment, but at least let me dream. I feel like I had a breakthrough recently and wanted to get some feedback. My moment, so to peak, came in my living room while taking practice swings on my carpet (it's 30* outside so what else can I do). I have a little round sticker on the carpet to represent a ball. My big miss, so to speak has always been fat shot
  11. Hey guys, I'm doing to a trip to Vegas with some buddies in a few weeks....Staying at Aria. We're thinking about turning this into a golf trip as well and playing 3 rounds. Does anyone have course recommendations that meeting the following: - Relatively close to the strip (30 minutes or less) - No more than $100 green fees (is that even possible in Vegas?) - Just a decent track, we're 15-20 handicaps so we don't need anything amazing. Thanks.
  12. In short, I have my 56* wedge dialed in perfectly at 90 yards with a smooth full swing. My next club down is my 50* Wedge, which I hit about 115/20. I need a go to club for 100 -105 yards. If I were to replace the 56 with a 54 (2 degrees less), do you think that would add 10/15 yards?
  13. Hi guys, I'm slowly getting back into golf after a numbers of years away (kids), and I'd like to invest in some quality lessons. I'm currently shooting in the low 90s, but I'm looking to get into 80s consistently. I know there are some things (probably many) in my swing that are not fundamentally sound, and I'd like to work with someone in the area (Nassau or Suffolk). I've heard great things about Mike Jacobs, but $300 an hour is insane in my opinion. Anyone have any recommendations? A grass hitting area would be highly preferred. Thanks. -Paul
  14. Agreed. I've been a big fan of Luke Donald for a long time, but I think the end might be coming for him. Not sure what's going on with his game....It's not just a situation of being short and crooked off the tee. He was lights out with his wedges ....that's not there anymore. Same with his short irons.....just not there either. I hope I'm wrong!
  15. Yes, we're very soft. I'm sure that if some ****** bag was following you around yelling things about your wife or girlfriend you'd have absolutely no problem just sucking it up.
  16. Not even trying to troll, just having some fun and pointing out how crappy Luke Donald has been for the past few years. But people here are such stick in the muds and take things so literally. I think you need a girlfriend, or something to occupy your time....
  17. [quote name='Frankensteins Monster' timestamp='1438276055' post='12048362'] Was god trying to save Tiger from himself with that strike or was he having a laugh by making him get cold again and stiffens up? [/quote] Yes, let's hope he can get his glutes to still fire!
  18. Because he's in pain....he's getting much better at hiding it though. Watch anyone with a bad back move, and it will become more and more obvious. There's nothing wrong him mentally.
  19. [quote name='bamoore07' timestamp='1434730901' post='11785724'] Norman made a good observation yesterday about surgery and playing golf at the highest level. His point was that even after full physical recovery your body still never functions the same, as certain muscles, ligaments and tendons experience stress and torque differently as they compensate for lack of strength or flexibility in the repaired areas. Recovery does not equate to being as good as new, or even close to that. After an impact fracture, my neck was fused in 2007. No matter how much yoga and rehab I do, my body DOES NO

This guys BACK is the issue! He's in pain and he will never tell anyone. I think people choose to ignore this because if it comes out it means that his career is pretty much over. There are certain things you never fully recover from and a back is one of them. I've never seen any

  22. Wow, note to self. Don't ever make a typo when posting on Golfwrx......people will certainly let you have it !
