  1. You're probably right about that, and I would do that if I was young. I'm a Senior in my 70's, and it's only my Backup Driver that needs to be regripped and I have the new Grip. I have USA Manufactured STAR GRIPS on all my Ping Clubs and they are phenomenal! They've been on my clubs for 3 years and they are like new and STAY TACKY! I play around 50 rounds a year! If I was back in NY this would be NO PROBLEM cuz there are Club Fitters by the Hundreds on Long Island. 165 Golf Courses on Long Island! Not easy to get Golf Services in Texas.
  2. I live in Euless, Texas. (DFW Mid-Cities Area) Moved here from Long Island, NY. Can anyone tell me where to get golf clubs regripped in this area?
  3. I know you won't believe me when I say this, but I was the person who made the first suggestion for a Senior Golfer Forum. I was very active on Golfwrx and they accepted my suggestion. I can't validate this but I'd bet that unless they got rid of early posts, some young High Tech fellow could find it. Ha, Ha...No Big Deal. I joined Golfwrx in April 2006 when I lived in Long Island, NY. I was born in NYC and lived on Long Island for 66 years. I retired to DFW, Texas. I think it was just called Senior Golfers back then. I don't post much now but I still play once a week and am still sing
  4. Thanks Guys! Lots of "Know How" here on this Forum!
  5. I just remembered that I have a "Like New" Cleveland Launcher 460 10.5 Driver That I hit really well, sitting in my closet. I intended to use it as a backup and actually forgot I had it. The idea that I had the wrong loft on my Driver never occurred to me. I DO REMEMBER that it was ME that wanted the 9 Degrees of Loft on my Driver when I bought the Ping G10s 10 years ago.! Big mistake, but I was not thinking properly!! I'm playing on Tuesday and I'll hit a few on the Range with the Cleveland Launcher. ALL my shafts except my Putter are Proprietary Ping Soft Regular for Seniors which you ca
  6. Disco 111: You just made my Week-End! Sometimes, it takes hearing from someone back in the neighborhood to help you settle your nerves and get your feet back on the ground! (I'm from Huntington) I FINALLY found two more seniors to fill out a foursome, which turns out to be the most difficult thing to do when you relocate to a new location at my age! You're searching for a certain level of play, while at the same time seeking compatibility. I found two fellows who could still "hit it" and were almost my age. I won't mention any names to retain privacy, but one of the guys is a former MLB
  7. I am receiving some very good replies and I thank you all very much. A lot of good ideas and very good advice. You have to talk to people who play golf. They won't just try to sell you $2000. worth of new clubs! (LOL) :cheesy:
  8. I understand your reply: Simple answer. But for clarity, I'm a good ball striker. Tempo, width, club set, transition, impact, and release are all sound. Because of my age, If it's really hot or I'm getting tired, the Drives will carry anywhere in a range of 190 to 230 yards but are always in the fairway, so to keep it more accurate, I simply use 190 as a Driver carry estimate. It's my accuracy and my short game that keep me competitive.
  9. Hello: I am a 77-year-old who has played golf since I was 10 and was taught by my Dad. I'm a 14 index now @ 6000 Yards. My carry yardage on a Driver is not an inch over 190 yards and I hit my 7 iron 130 yards. So, obviously lost yardage on every club but I'm still as accurate as a Laser Beam and always in play. When you have no length you have to have accuracy! I can hit every club in the bag and hit it well, just not as far as I did in younger days. I have played Ping G-10 clubs for 10 years, ever since they came out. I thought when I bought them that my playing days were fast coming

  11. Good Post Matt J. The "Natural Swing" of an athletic person is IMO, paramount! I'm 77 yrs old, born in NYC and lived, worked, and raised my 3 Sons on Long Island until I relocated to DFW last year. My oldest Son lives in Colleyville. One of the other senior guys in my new foursome played Shortstop in MLB for 16 years. He admired how well this old guy could still work the ball around the course and asked me if I played Baseball. (I did and played in college.) Being athletic along with good Genes and staying trim and fit has much to do with it. No guarantees, but it helps.
  12. 10-4 Matt J. The golf swing regardless of one's ability, age, or fitness is something that is virtually impossible to master. Those who have played for a long time ultimately accept this but it is like dragging your dog in to give him a bath to get some people to understand this. I'd only offer this: If a person loves golf, has good athletic ability, and can work around most tracks while playing the ball down, and can break 90, they should just play, using their BEST swing, and be done with it. When you "Overthink the Golf Swing" you'll ruin the pleasure of playing. Keep hittin' Em Lon
  13. I never try to actually set the club. It just happens. On a scale of 1-10, keeping my grip pressure at around a 6, keeping the clubhead a little outside my hands with a one-piece take away, the weight of the clubhead cocks my wrists and automatically sets the club at the beginning of transition with the clubhead being the last thing to get to the top and the last thing to get to impact, but not so much that you can easily see it. I shallow the club on the downswing coming from inside and it just appears to be a smooth swing with the hands leading and delivers the same sensation as "Crackin
  14. I Float Load. Float Loading works well for players who have a natural, relaxed, smooth tempo swing. (Watch Boo Weekley, Lucas Glover, Sergio Garcia) You can't try to Float Load! It has to happen naturally in sync with the turn of the body and good swing mechanics. There is very little wrist c0ck on the backswing and the change of direction causes the wrists to set naturally on the way down. I don't even think about it but it creates Width, Club Set, and Lag all in one Fell Swoop, giving me a nice "POP" on the ball for more power. I'm a Senior and still single digit @ 6000 Yards and alway
