  1. RSG is spectacular. Wonderful golf course. Hard. Layout is varied, but also evenly paced and has just lots of great holes. Bring a jacket and tie and have the carvery lunch. One of the best golf club lunches you'll get anywhere. RCP is very good. It's a little more out and back than RSG. Last 7 holes are joke hard into the wind (which is normally the case). It's a lot more quirky than RSG and has some quite unusual holes on it (3, 6 and 16 spring to mind). It also has some really good holes on it, though not quite as many as RSG IMO Prince's is not bad. It's not as good as the other two. T
  2. I have played all but Murcar and thoroughly enjoyed them all. As far as other suggestions, I would recommend the Medal Courses at Monifieth and Montrose. Enjoy your trip - you have a fantastic lineup.
  3. I go on an annual trip to Scotland and just recently got back from my 11th trip. I am one of the designated drivers in my group and I have found it quite easy to drive there. One thing that makes it easy is that the Scots are just as kind behind the wheel as they are in person. I use "Sygic UK &IRL" GPS on my iPhone for navigation and have found it to be an invaluable resource for navigation - it's extremely accurate and alerts you to such things as speed cameras and when you are exceeding the speed limit. The GPS also doesn't use cellular data - just make sure the maps are downloaded befo

These include a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Right now, I am not sure, if I will even be able to play, when I am there, but it might be that I have two of those three days completely free for golf. I would love to play the old links at Musselburgh, maybe two of the Gullane courses and North Berwick. Will it be easy for a single to just show up on the

[quote name='cnfidelis' timestamp='1331139172' post='4455507'] happy to give you one anecdotal experience at hot stix (arizona).. took both of my sons there - Age 12 (just for driver fitting - based on teacher's recommendation) and then my 15 year old for full set. a couple of take-aways: 1) we had them hit all sorts of clubs on a range (there is a distinct advantage to seeing the ball flight to the very end) as opposed to a booth.. 2) the numbers, the numbers, the numbers - it was good to see which specifications produced the best 'prototypical' ball flights per trackman ..

Not quite the "Gravitas" of last year, but a wee bit cheaper and filled with courses I really want
  8. [quote name='powerfade_maller' timestamp='1316021817' post='3563989'] soggy ground will take half a club because there is nothing substantial to compress the ball into. rain will take another half club. supposedly you lose something like 1 yard per 3 degrees temperture drop, but also gain a yard for every 3 degrees warmer. Also, high humidity will increase distance a little bit (as long as it isn't raining). For example, on a 90 degree day with 80% humididty, and dry fairways you may hit your 7 iron 155 yards. If the weather drops to 60 degrees, expect that same 7 iron to only go 145.
  9. My tee shot on number one at The Old Course. I have never been so nervous standing over a shot. I can still feel the impact of my hybrid on that shot.
  10. In. I love the 58-degree wedge I already have. I'm sure I would love the irons as well.
  11. I've been looking for reviews on these for about the last 3 weeks or so. I would love to have these so that I can post a review.
  12. When addressing the ball with my driver, I place the driver head on the ground. I used to position the center of the driver face directly behind the ball (again, with the driver head on the ground). The tip I received was to place the ball, at address, somewhere between the center of the face and the toe. Therefore, when you raise the driver head to where it would be at impact, you will see that the center of the driver face is now directly behind the ball. If you address the center of the driver face directly behind the ball and then raise the driver head to where it would be at impact, y
  13. If you can demo the two shafts before buying, do so. I don't know if weight is an issue, but there is a difference of (I think) 21 grams between the two shafts, with the S300 being the heavier of the two. Also, the S300 should produce a lower ball flight. I have the i15s and used to play the AWT shaft. I can honestly say that the AWT shafts didn't fit MY swing. That doesn't mean they aren't good shafts. Call it an "attitude" if you want, but since replacing the AWT shafts with KBS shafts, my handicap has gone from 6.8 to 1.2. Now, I have been practicing and playing as much as possibl
