  1. For me a good golfer is a person that lives the spirit of the game according to the rules and demonstrates courtesy and sportsmanship at all time: - Someone who considers other on the course and treats other player the way he would like to be treated. - Someone who takes care of the course. - Someone who keeps up pace of play. Personally, I think a good golfer can shoot 90 while one that shoots 70 can be a bad golfer.
  2. If one guy makes such a miracle shot, he will hear things like: - "learned, never forgotten" - "exactly what we expected" - "now that was the minimum" - "even a blind hen sometimes finds a grain" - "why do you copy me?" - "you payed great attention how we play golf" stuff like that, always in combination with a wink. If one of the guys behaves like the king of the world for a longer time after such a shot, he will hear things like "there's a billion chinese who do not really care at all, so shut up and play golf, dude" But one thing's for sure: I am excited if my playing partner sho
  3. [quote name='Peterson' timestamp='1418546572' post='10591035'] I have played most of the above course and enjoyed them. However, the one I've played most often and enjoy immensely is Makalei Golf Club. It has large elevation changes, as the course range from 1,800 to 2,850 feet in elevation. It is reasonably price at approximately $50 per round, has less wind than the coastal courses and is challenging. If you like wide flat fairway courses, this isn't for you but if you like unique courses this one is worth considering. [/quote] Fully agree: Makalei is maybe the most challenging cours
  4. I don't say a word in a situation that deserves enjoyment and silence. Because sometimes the most powerful and joyful thing one can say is to say nothing at all.
  5. Is Pro V1 a good ball? Definitely yes! Is Pro V1 the best ball? Definitely not! At least not for me. And one of the reason is that this ball is in a way unpredictable. Sometimes it spins like hell, sometimes it doesn't. A slight "below-perfect-shot" and there's a huge variance in spin compared to a so called perfect shot. The consequence for me: Hands off the Pro V1! It does worsen my score. I am far better off with a ball for half the price.
  6. The family of my wife lives on the wonderful mediterranean island Sardinia, so we spend a lot of time down there. After having played the nearby course more than a dozen times I registered for the year end tournament. The course has average lenght and demands precises play since half of the holes are in a pine forrest - once in the trees it is getting really difficult. At the end of the day I won the tournamennt with my defensive play (almost never the driver from the tee, never fire at the pin but at the middle of the green), 100% greens in regulation and not a single birdie. In 15 or 16
  7. [quote name='pu_golf88' timestamp='1440611902' post='12212834'] I'm tempted to give this a try, but I'm a little surprised this works. When my glove gets wet from playing in the rain it's never the same again. [/quote] It worked perfectly well for my leather glove. I washed one of them already 3 or 4 times. They are not only clean and do not smell but fit much better again, too! There's not much to loose ; )
  8. Most of us love to play golf when the sun is shining and the temperatures are high. The downside of great weather: more sweat, wet gloves. And although we let them dry they do not look fresh again and, yeah, smell. By accident* I found a very simple and obvious solution the clean the gloves: just put them in the washing machine. Seriously. Wash them at normal temperatures at about 100 F. Sure, when you take – or let them take - out of the machine they look “different”: grey, tattered, bulky. Let them dry (not in the sun) and then you need a bit of patience to put to glove on: you mig
  9. [quote name='DeadLetterOffice' timestamp='1432151492' post='11595706'] I am thinking of swapping my Apex irons for the XR's. But the lofts are funny so it will cause me to re think my bag a bit. The best I can figure, and having hit them and my wedges is that after the PW I would need to go to a 48 rather than a 50 gap. Then a 52, 56 and maybe a 60. I used to only carry 2 wedges, 50 and 56. New clubs and the strange lofts are causing havok! [/quote] Yep. Apex PW 45*, GW 50*, SW* and Jaws 58*. One of the killer criteria for not buying the XR was/is that they do not offer as SW since I
  10. [quote name='pmcuk' timestamp='1431801350' post='11569714'] I couldn't see a thread on this, though I'm sure it has been discussed. Is there any kind of general acceptance that the soft inserts on Odyssey putters give better distance control? Seems to me they avoid the possibilities of flyers if you hit on/off the sweet spot. Any experiences and views on this - what do you think? [/quote] Ranger or Islanders? Yankees or Mets? Lakers or Clippers? What goes for the team one supports also goes for the putter one plays, also with regards to distance control. It’s a question of preferenc

  14. Frankly speaking, I think that most golfers would be better off with a shorter shaft on their driver. There must be a reason that Tiger, Bubba or Sergio play with +/- 44 inches. Personally, with my 44.5 “ my ball is on the fairway more often with no loss in distance on average. And: no more of those “blackout”-drives out of bounds any more. But since this cannot be generalize best is a proper fitting is key to find out the right configuration, not only in terms of length but also lie, face angle, swing weight etc.
