  1. This is a good question, and I think there is an exact answer. It depends on the player as much as anything. For me Driver is #1 without question. If I am hitting fairways I am going to play well. Scoring from the trees or thick rough makes approach shots impossible. A good scrambler can safe a round all day. Tiger spent much of his career scrambling and he is arguably the GOAT. Someone has to be a good putter to go low. It is all relative. I would ultimately say: 1. Driver 2. Wedge 3. Putter
  2. My fitness level hasn't changed much if at all over the last 3 years. I went from 29-32 and I am still doing the same job (RN). I hike pretty often and like to walk most of my rounds. I think flexibility training and the speed sticks are where ill start.
  3. 2021 was the most consistent golf of my life, and I am happy with how my season went. I have been reflecting on my season, and I have come up with 2 goals. I want to improve my putting and I want to increase my club head speed. I have already talked about work towards Improving my putting, so this thread will be dedicated to increasing club head speed. I have seen a drop in distance over the last 3 season. I assume most of it is swing mechanics, but it could also be decreased swing speed. I need to get on a monitor and check it to confirm. I think right now my club head speed is around 90 mph. 2-3 seasons ago it was 103-105. I’d like to get back to my old distance and actually surpass them. My question is how much club head speed have any of you seen gained? I think 10+ mph is probably ambitious for one off season, but it potentially could be done.
  4. this is SO Hard to decide: 1. Chariot run 2. Kampen 3. Sultan’s run 4. Brickyard 5. Rock hollow I’ve played the Ross course, and I’ve gotta figure it would make the list if it’s in better shape next time I play it.
  5. Most recent WITB UPDATES: I don't have a working camera, so no pictures at this time. Ping g400 Max 9* Ping Tour 65R Cobra f7 14.5* Aldila NV 75r Cobra f6 baffler 19* Matrix code-8 G25 23* Oban Devotion 85s , 27* fubuki 85s , 31* evenflow green 85s Srixon 765 7-A Modus 120s Cleveland Rtx-3 58* Ping Karsten Craz-e Camo hoofer
  6. 1. City, State? Greenwood, IN 2. Handicap? 10 3. How would the Apex Utility Wood fit into your bag? I would use this as a potential replacement for my beloved Cobra F6 Baffler. I could also see about using it as a 7 wood replacement depending on the lofts available for the club! 4. Why do you want to test the Callaway Apex Utility Wood? I love to try out new equipment. I would like to find a club that is more solid out of the rough than a traditional wood. I think this club could also be a good club to hit into short par 5s. 5. Do you agree to take high quality photos, write an in-depth review, and be part of an on-going testing thread? Yes
  7. 1. City, State? Greenwood, IN 2. Handicap? 10 3. What is your current putter? Ping Karsten series Craz-e 4. Have you ever used a L.A.B. Golf putter? No 5. Why do you want to review the MEAZZ.1 putter? I am a certified club ho, and I love trying new clubs! 6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos? Absolutely!
  8. My brother has been out of the game for the last 10+ years and he looking to take up golf again. He is a lefty and has no clubs. I’d like to buy him something to help him get started out. I don’t need anything fancy as I’m sure he’ll only play a few times a season. If anyone has an older driver, putter, set of irons, wedges set etc pm me. Id like to keep the set under $500 or so. Thanks and have a great day!
  9. 9* of bounce on my lob wedge. Could've used 29* of bounce for the swamp I played in Saturday.
  10. Walking off the course yesterday I had a feeling of pure disgust in the pit of my stomach. I had just three jacked a hole from no more than 10 feet away, and the first 2 putts didn't even have a snowballs chance of going in. I was/am sick and tired of being a crappy putter. I have played this game too long and love to play way too much to be struggling on the greens. I searched the internet for advice and came across this thread. About my putting: I am a TERRIBLE short putter. I miss most of my putts to the right, and this is a cup out miss. Not a burn the edge miss. I am talking about putts from 5 feet or less here. This season I've averaged 31-32 putts per round, but that is attributed to my poor ball striking. I think if I was hitting more than 6-7 greens per round my putts would be closer to 35-37. I've always been a decent pitcher/flopper of the ball which has helped me get up and down and save par. I'll have 3-4 taps per round from getting up and down. Reading greens is also a struggle for me. I generally play too little break. The good news is that I am a streaky putter. I will have some days that I can hope lots of putts, so I know I've got the ability to make them. I am fully onboard with getting my putting in check during the 2021 off season. Thanks for starting this thread, and I will report back on my progress. Went to the putting green today for about 30 minutes. I simply worked on getting the ball rolling on line faster. I am not worried about pace or aim at this time. I am simply trying to get the putter to hit the ball at a much better clip.
  11. It would suck to have an entire set of clubs stolen. That is brutal. If i was going to buy a new set i think I would start with where my last set was . I would ask myself what in my set did i like and what could have been better? Easiest thing would be replace everything as is. I know I would just use to opportunity to start an all new bag adventure.
  12. 2005. My dad bought me a set of box set of ram clubs from k mart. Think the whole set was about $150 bucks brand new. I remember my 8 iron breaking off at the hosel on the range, the golf bag unraveling and I had to duct tape it back together. I didn’t know this set wouldn’t last long and my early club hoing began.
  13. Sticking a wedge straight in the ground also sucks! Following up a good drive and a great shot at birdie with scrambling to save par or bogey due to one bad shot is a pretty miserable feeling.
  14. HIO without question. Only golf shot I've ever called my dad about after hitting it! In the realm of routine golf: sticking an iron or wedge tight.
  15. I’ve booked 2 tee times for trophy club next Saturday 10/30 at 1100 and 1109. I think we have 5 players now all chili-dipper wrx members If anyone is interested in joining in Hit up this thread or pm me! Good would love to get out with some more members.
