  1. I wear sunglasses virtually every day- including while golfing. Polarized lenses don't seem to be a problem.
  2. It is possible to post good scores with any type of iron. If you want to find out whether you would enjoy something other than what you are currently playing go get a set and try them. Unlikely anyone else knows the answer for you.
  3. There really isn't anything about the design and manufacturing of iron heads that isn't widely known in the industry. Find a head design that appeals to you and all the big manufacturers will have something close - just personal preference from there.
  4. I just moved to all graphite/lighter shafts as a concession to getting older. Was quite concerned going from 110 gram shafts to 80 gram, but it has worked out fine. I did find that with the lighter shafts and lighter overall club weight that I hade to hit chip shots a little harder, but very pleased on full shots and definitely feel less fatigue after a round.
  5. Have the same graphite shafts in my irons and wedges- works fine for me.
  6. There are very few "amateur" athletes in the Olympics anymore- maybe in wrestling but that's about it. No way to keep the professionals out under USOC rules
  7. Good thing there are lots of different iron styles available. Everybody gets to play what works for them.
  8. Bought a seven wood last summer. Swaps in/out of my bag with the 3 hybrid depending on the course I'm playing.
  9. I use a Garmin gps watch just to save time looking for/at my phone for each shot. Having it on my wrist at all times just makes it more convenient.
  10. Not sure what you would do with any of the information about GIR, fairways hit, number of putts etc. except drive yourself nuts. Everything has room to improve- you already know this and the numbers aren't going to help you get better at everything. Just keep playing/practicing and use your scores as a goal.
  11. 100+ rounds per year for the last 10 years or so. New England weather is a factor, and my back won't do more than 4/5 days a week.
  12. Try a few balls until you find one you like then buy them from an on-line used ball retailer for about 50-60% of new. Buy the mint grade balls and I think you would have a hard time differentiating them from a new ball.
